    Oh well, I'd better hurry up and figure out what this power is before I reach my late 30s and it becomes useless! It sucks having a power that you can only use for a small fraction of your life. I don't suppose you'd want to trade your life long man powers, would you?

    It certainly has no power over me. As much as sex is all nice and lovely - I will not get irrational and hypnotized over getting it.

    Though vaginas are all nice and lovely - it has no power over me. I am self-controlled and disciplined and thus do not go around promiscuously and follow the trail of "pussy".

    A weak man (if he should be called such!) is overcome by the "power of pussy". A strong man subjects the "power of pussy" to his command and rule and exercises phallic power when needed and at his will and time.


    You, Sir, are of the former!! :proud:

    I accept it's possible for men to learn to not put it on a pedestal but the reason they tend to is that it has become so valuable in modern society.

    True. Its engrained in us to try and pull/sleep with as many attractive women as possible, and half the guys you see in clubs will only have a good night if they end up pulling.

    I think that's sad. I luckily learned from a young age what manipulative *****es some girls can be, so focused my efforts on finding a girl I liked and making her my gf.

    Took a while... but dayum it paid off.

    Wait, we're constantly and consistently objectified and you call it power? When I walk down the street in summer wearing *gasp* a skirt that is above my knees and some random guy wolf-whistles at me, I don't feel powerful. I feel angry. I feel like just because I'm a woman, it's acceptable to judge me by looks alone. In your OP you say that girls want a disney prince and men want a porn star. Well, at least Prince Charming actually has a personality.

    Ani DiFranco sums it up pretty well:

    God help you if you are an ugly girl,
    Of course pretty is also your doom,
    Cause everyone harbours a secret hatred
    For the prettiest girl in the room.

    instinct? Women can only get pregnant once at a time. A man can impregnate as many as he can. Women will therefore be choosier about who gives them a baby. Men just want to spread their seed to as many who will take it. But then obviously societal factors come in to limit this with morals... so men won't sleep with just anyone (usually), and they must behave in a certain way to impress women.

    Solution to OP's problems is one very Eastern in nature - the power of the pussy is the power you give it. Be like water my friend, be like water.

    Well isn't it similar with other animals? That's just the way things are, stop being a ***** about it and deal with it.
    In nature, the males often make up some sort of a song and dance and the women chose whether to mate with them or not?
    Like the male peacocks prance about with their peacock tails and the female is like 'ooh I like him , I chose that one'...
    Well in the case of humans, a guy acts confident and tries to hit on a girl and if she likes it she goes with him if not she walks away?

    I'm guessing you're just struggling with the competition and can't get a girl? Tip: stop wasting time moaning about it on TSR.

    Actually, if you look around TSR you'd be surprised at how many males post stuff like "pretty girls are always such stuck-up *****es, they think they're better than us, etc."

    But the ones that don't get in or know they can't get in resort to saying things like "she ain't as pretty as she thinks" and pretending they have seen and had better. Have you ever noticed? Average girls have it best as every man and his dog think they have a chance. Ugly girls aren't acknowledged and pretty girls are feared.

    I see merit in the biological argument but it's way too simplified. In many species the female is dominant as opposed to the male for a start. Secondly there are tribes where females are dominant. Thirdly we are not just animals, we have many more layers than that, psychological layers, social layers, systems, organisations, countries, civilisations, histories... it's absurd to just say the human condition is just like that of monkeys or whatever.

    This very fact allows for the separation to becomes amplified, the differences to become vast. Since humans can accumulate wealth and status of vast quantities, animals cannot. The comparisons with the animal kingdom are possible and in many cases can tell us a great deal, but it's certainly not the whole story, not by a long stretch.

    I already said in my first post I don't have girls hanging off my arm. And that I agree just whining about things is self-defeating. So what you're saying is no one can ever argue against the status quo? Unless they're highly successful with women; then they might have a point?

    Great argument there - you should join a debating society.

    True. There's also tits and ass. Much more to women than just the vagina...

    If there wasn't such a gap between the sexual desirability of women vis-a-vis men women wouldn't be objectified as much. In such a world, women would whistle at much as much as men whistle at women!

    Every guy wants to sleep with the pretty girls, but there arnt many very pretty girls who can hold the average semi-intelligent male's interest beyond sex.
