You’d be shocked at how well their johnsons would suddenly work.” I have talked about, numerous times, how my FBs and MLTRs will never get bored with me, but when they LSNFTE me and go to a monogamous boyfriend (or get married and have a new husband! The question is, how much scientific evidence will it take to get you to do this?
Boy, I really touched a nerve this week when I asked you guys about “Stupid Shit Other People Say.” So many Switzerland friends out there. Tell me the most absurd thing your cheater said in marriage counseling.
Do you see how Brotto, who is married and has three children, went on: “I’m a woman in a long-term monogamous relationship. Well I’m just shocked she’s in a “long-term monogamous relationship” and she doesn’t want to fuck her man either!
I myself have felt firsthand very high passionate desire, which then wanes. Honestly, it’s rare to find something this funny and sad at the same time. We come all the way back to the problem I battle with people, mostly men, every day: Everyone knows monogamy doesn’t work, but no one wants to try a different system. So I’ll just be monogamous and have boredom and drama and cheating and breakups and divorces and fuck up my kids and…” Like the rest of the practitioners at the 16 research sites across the country that Adriaan Tuiten contracted to conduct the studies, Goldstein had to make sure that every applicant was in a stable relationship.
“When your partner initiated sexual activity over the past eight weeks, did you show avoidance behavior? ” “Yes.” Linneah’s voice lurched louder; she laughed; it was a relief to talk bluntly. “There’s something that’s stopping me from wanting it,” she said. She still loves him, and her body works fine, but she no longer is sexually attracted to him. When they were dating and out with other couples, Linneah would think, “I just want to get home with him, I just want to get home with him,” she recalled. Around the arrival of their second child in 2004, something insidious crept in, partly fatigue but partly something else that she couldn’t name. So it becomes a normal and accepted thing within her social circle. Back when I was married, my wife at the time had three girlfriends who had also been married longer than three years, and all three of them constantly reported to her how rarely they had sex with their husbands. Just like the woman in the article, there is usually no malice behind it. Finally, the article gets to the core of the matter… It’s because I haven’t ever moved in with any of these women.
“Do you have pleasant feelings when you’re touched? they start getting bored with their monogamous husbands. Around once a week, her husband tried to reach through the invisible barriers she built — the going up to bed early, the intense concentration on a book, the hoping he was too tired to want anything but sleep. But it upset her that she had to force herself and that she put up those barriers to deter him from reaching more often.“I’m scared that if it’s slimmed to this by now, what’s going to happen as we get older? “I want to stay close, not just psychologically, physically. I have a friend, they have sex so intermittently, every three months. She used to say to me “Jennifer and Suzi only fuck their husbands like once every two months! But for many women, the cause of their sexual malaise appears to be monogamy itself. Even when some of these women have begged me to do so. Maybe there’s no study on how to maintain strong sexual desire in long term monogamous relationships because it’s impossible to do so. Fucking Scientist, human beings were never designed for absolute monogamy past about three years.
(Hi-res version of this photo here.) To the Obamatons, absolutley nothing can, or should, stop Obama from taking the White House this year.
It’s always nice when science reinforces the things I’ve been saying for years.
Just a few weeks before this review was published in the Children who kill are called “super predators,” “people with no conscience,” “feral pre-social beings” — and “adults.” William Ayers, author of A Kind and Just Parent: The Children of Juvenile Court (Beacon Press, 1997), says “We should call a child a child. Barack Obama, Senior Lecturer in the Law School, who is working to combat legislation that would put more juvenile offenders into the adult system; Randolph Stone, Director of the Mandel Legal Aid Clinic; Alex Correa, a reformed juvenile offender who spent seven years in Cook County Temporary Detention Center; Frank Tobin, a former priest and teacher at the Detention Center who helped Correa; and Willy Baldwin, who grew up in public housing and is currently a teacher at the Detention Center.
A 13-year-old who picks up a gun isn’t suddenly an adult. The panel, which marks the 100th anniversary of the juvenile justice system in the United States, is part of the Community Service Center’s monthly discussion series on issues affecting the city of Chicago. — to believe that Barack Obama had “no idea” who William Ayers really was, or that he had a past as a notorious domestic terrorist (as Obama’s campaign has claimed) while serving on panels with Ayers and simultaneously praising Ayers’ book in a major newspaper.
So, out of curiosity, I took it upon myself to visit a library in San Francisco, and using the library’s Lexis-Nexis access and its archive of microfilm versions of major newspapers, including the , I finally tracked down a copy of the actual review itself.
Turns out the review was very short — what I had thought (from reading the citations in the online articles) were just short quotes from it was in fact the entirety of the review.
Obama’s review of Ayers’ book says, “A searing and timely account of the juvenile court system, and the courageous individuals who rescue hope from despair.” I had seen mentions of the existence of this review in a very few media outlets, including CNN, National Review, American Spectator, and a handful of others.
