    I don’t know what they will find ten thousand years from now, probably a lot of cigarette butts, they don’t decompose.

        $4k is less than dinner and a movie a hundred times over, never mind dinner with a white linen tablecloth. It just occurred to me that women have to be good company to justify the expense of dating.

        Yeah, I’ve got to punt on that one. (But my mom knows what porn and heroin look like)

    This cartoonish hypertrophy of specific body parts remains a fixture of erotic art into the present day.

    Robert Crumb tells of his distant ancestor who carved these figurines:

    Lust is an instinct, like hunger, that is essential to our survival. Men “idolize” women because for millennia men who felt this way toward their wives did a better job of protecting them and so passed on more of their genes.

    St. Paul said that very few men are called to celibacy, and that if you aren’t one of them, you should marry post-haste and have frequent sex with your wife to sate your lust and hers. Hungry men do desperate, evil things, and so do lustful men.

      Sexual desire isn’t evil, per se; it was created good.

      But like everything else, it became tainted with sin, and lust was born.

      Strong lawful desire is good. Strong unlawful desire is not.

        To get civilization going again, we must repress *female* sexuality, because only a man with a young, fertile, obedient wife, or a sporting chance of getting one, has any reason to get up in the morning.

        Male lust is not a problem. Where men rule, they marry and have children. Where women rule, they become alcoholic cat-ladies after a long series of sterile “relationships”. (There is no middle way. Every society is either explicitly, absolutely patriarchal or it is ruled by women, per Briffault’s Law.)

        Before Christianity swallowed the suicide pill of feminism, it encouraged marriage, tolerated prostitution, and condemned masturbation, pornography, and all non-PIV sex acts because these things divert male lust away from its natural purpose.

    Sexual desire isn’t evil, per se; it was created good.

    If only the church could be convinced of that. The Bible doesn’t seem to have swayed them toward accepting this truth.

      Funny how that goes, eh?
