  •  I don't think so. (8+ / 0-)

    You forget the strange calculus of religio-sexism.  On the one hand, for them women are supposed to be sexually constrained.  But, on the other hand, men are supposed to be promiscuous, as part of their ordained right as men, and partly as a proof of that manhood.

    It's dumb, it's unjust, it makes no sense.  But that's the mentality.  Combatting it with logic is a fool's errand.  (That's a figure of speech.  I would never call Cervantes a fool.)

    •  Marry the virgin (10+ / 0-)

      Fuck the whore

      The perfect embodiment of this most irrational doctrine is the myth of the immaculate conception - the "virgin mother".

      Men have been justifying "consequence free sex" (for them) for thousands of years.

      •  The problem is...the virgin rarely knows much (2+ / 0-)

        about her own anatomy, biology, reactions, needs, etc.  And even less about his!

        So....he winds up wanting the "whore" who does know what's what and is unabashedly sexual and unconstrained.

        It's a lose/lose/lose....and sad all around.

        Hmmm....except for "the whore" who will always find a good man to appreciate her, celebrate her, and enjoy her, as she does him.
