“I Love My Boyfriend Dearly—but I’m Desperate to Have Sex With Other Men”

“I Love My Boyfriend Dearly—but I’m Desperate to Have Sex With Other Men” is a “Don’t get married” classic. Notice that this woman’s plea for infidelity is also being published in a mainstream venue.

I wonder if “Talking to Women” describes men today, too:

I have been reading a book, Talking to Women, published in 1965 and consisting of interviews with artsy Irish chicks. Many of their comments could be pulled from modern Red Pill writing. Let me take a look at some, Sheila Rowbotham, in Promise of a Dream (2000), recalls how “little cultural space existed at this … Continue reading “I wonder if “Talking to Women” describes men today, too:”

Ms. Slav flakes, Peaches, masculinity and polarity

Ms. Slav flaked on me earlier this week, sending me an elaborate message that I did not like, and I haven’t heard from her since.

I assume … Continue reading “Ms. Slav flakes, Peaches, masculinity and polarity”

Ms. Slav story updates: Enter new girl Peaches

In the last update I said, “I’ve been in a sex whirlwind,” and that is still true.

But as we were moving to … Continue reading “Ms. Slav story updates: Enter new girl Peaches”

“Untrue,” on female lust and infidelity, for players

I previously mentioned the Wednesday Martin book, Untrue: Why Nearly Everything We Believe About Women, Lust, and Infidelity Is Wrong and How the New Science Can Set Us Free, and now that I have read it, I can say that, if it were framed slightly differently and written by a Red-Pill guy, it would be … Continue reading ““Untrue,” on female lust and infidelity, for players”

“Author Robin Rinaldi’s open marriage experiment ends in divorce and a memoir”

I’m on the record recommending that men not marry. I’m also on the record recommending sex clubs and open relationships as part of a guy’s game repertoire. But if a guy is going to ignore my advice about marriage, he should also avoid sex clubs. Sex clubs and partner swapping is great in a low-stakes … Continue reading ““Author Robin Rinaldi’s open marriage experiment ends in divorce and a memoir””
