Real Men Don’t…

I love this analysis of this latest crazy liberal faux-macho anti-sex PSA by the wonderful Sofia at Sofiastry. She says:

‘The convergence of self-empowerment speak, a minority spokesperson with intellectual endeavours and youth-directed advertising is almost too meta for words. The advert’s salvation from becoming a perfect liberal creation lies in some sort of convoluted message that equates academic success with sexual abstinence, equally bad, but fortunately not as predictable.’

And, hitting the nail on its sexually frustrated head:

‘I’m sure as a lot of men can attest to, they would sacrifice some work-life status if it meant having a better sex life. After all, isn’t the impetus for a high-status job to attain the pussy at the end of the rainbow?’

Also how does abstention actually logically lead to career success? What if you don’t get laid or a decent education/job? Because, you know, social inequalities?

    Oh don’t worry about that.

    When you want to become an engineer then you don’t need to abdicate on sex at all.
    You wanna know why ? Because it is something that usually comes with the job already !

    Trust me, I know ! -.-

    • do you have sex with your machines, Tim? or other engineers? where is all this engineering sex coming from I’d like to know!

      • Tim says:

        Lol I messed up the sentence.

        It is not sex that comes with the job, but abdicating it.

        Anyway, I don’t have a clue what kind of machine i could build to have sex with… Any ideas ?

  3. but I do find a tension between sex and creative work that is difficult to reconcile.
