    Chris Rock sums it up quite nicely.

    Women are offered *penis* every single day. :p:
    ahaha Chris Rock is too funny. And also very right.

    Certainly not! Where did you get that idea from?

    I suppose some people can be blinded by their feelings when they are younger. I however have just turned 20 and would be very rational in analyzing who I fancied/didn't fancy.

    squish.
    Everyone knows it. Guys won't say no if sex is offered to them, they watch porn, and think about sex loads. It is very easy to turn a man on.

    I know that men can be picky - I would certainly exercise my right to!

    But that doesn't mean that those men aren't judged for it - in the same way that some women are judged for bouncing on many appendages.

    squish.

    I really cannot for the life of me think of situations where men have been maligned for being picky, especially not in the same way or to the same extent that some women are for having many sexual partners.

    You're a Man U fan. You're probably scaring them off before you have a chance. Hah.

    Sorry. Had to get that in there. :yep:

    Sluts are just no fun. Give us girls a bad reputation

    Oh come on! Stop generalizing!

    There's a HUGE difference between watching pornography (most men prefer softcore) and actually properly entering somebody's vagina.

    I don't think that many men just think about sex loads (probably mainly when they masturbate only actually) - how could men be fretting about sex when they are in the middle of a 3 hr long exam?! Or before a series of interviews?! Or at work?!

    Maybe the guy may not say not if he was intoxicated, granted.

    squish.

    If i said its an ongoing project to try and turn a slut.. i would get labelled as stupid for going after a person known to be a player. Why can men do it but women can't!

    If you were a man you wouldn't say this, more than likely if a girl approaches a guy for sex they will say yes.
    My point still stands, there's nothing to stop a guy from being more picky.

    Why do you think this is?

    Inspired by the thread on 'women's turn-off's in guys'

    If we thought more rationally about people we fancied or not there would be less pain in the future.

    Do you think that men aren't allowed to be as picky as they prefer?
    I'm as picky as I want to be

    A boyfriend is far more than a guy for a girl, while, lets face it,for most guys a girlfriend is a consistant shag thats a laugh to be with. Also, guys are well picky behind girls back, but one never wanna be the guy that starts a girl self harming or being anorexic or being a **** to prove a point - whereas if a girl openly dumped me for a physical feature I'd just shrug it off, go out on the pull again, and mutter to my guy mates that she was a poor shag or w/e, they'd nod sympatheticly and it'd all be allright.

    You're trying to change being a Man U fan? That must be hard. It's like a disease right?

    There are quite a few occasions where men are maligned for being picky.

    E.g. when one of the female friends of the female who for some reason fancies the disinterested male object of desire informs the said male of the woman's desires and encourages him to 'make a move'. When the said male does not make any such move because he well...just doesn't feel the need, questions are asked as to why and accusations may be made of his excessive selectivity, etc.

    Maybe the women who bounce on many rods are maligned mainly only by the people who they are cheating upon? If a horny woman who enjoys being penetrated wasn't anybody's partner and sought out many penises it wouldn't really affect men at all (since she would be unattached as opposed to in a relationship).

    squish.

    Look at bigfatflankers post a few above this one.

    If a man see's a fit girl, he will want to shag her. For alot of men, they can have sex without having any feelings for her. Guy's find it very hard to say no to sex

    haha, in this given situation I guess the friend of the fancier (ff from now on) thinks she's less desirable than the fancier, while probably thinking that the guy is in her league. When the guy does nothing, ff probably worries that she's less desirable than she thought. She probably also acts the way she does to reaffirm the belif that it's what's under the skin that counts. Alternatly, it may be a vieled plug to see if perhaps she has the desirable qualities that the fancier doesn't.
