We live in a society of instant gratification. Everything moves in rapid fire with lots of bells and whistles, blinky lights and promises of more, more, more. Fast cars, fast women and men, fast food, and, yes, fast sex. But what are we really gaining? If I listen to all the hype, I will be a happier person…more gratified if I just give in to the speed and ride the wave with everyone else. But I can’t because I know the hype is nothing but hot air and empty promises. Let’s take a look at some of this hype and see why.
Hype: Most every young man dreams of having a super fast car. Why? I believe it is because they think women think it is sexy, and maybe some women do. I’ve just never met one. Then there is the factor of power. Seriously, have you ever seen a girl get excited about a 350 engine block or the rev of high RPMs? Yea, me neither. But many men hear the sweet purr and know that bad boy is going to leave a little rubber on the asphalt when they gun it. They know that the 0-60 in a blink is a sign of their studliness.
But isn’t it the car that went fast and not the man? Why, yes. Yes, it is. The man gets speed points by proxy from controlling the beast and in some cases, maintaining and/or building the beast, <Insert Tim Allen grunt> and hundreds…no, thousands of women will want him to father their children.
Reality: Unless you are a professional racer, get a truck. At least then it can serve a functional purpose. If you get a super-bad-A sports car, you are going to get a lot of tickets and probably a few wrecks because you are still buying into the hype.
Fast Men and Women
There is only way I mean this and it is people that sleep with lots and lots of people. The mind-twist that gets people to buy into this behavior is always self-serving but never serves self well. I will divide this by gender. Not because I am sexist, but because we are different. If you can’t deal with that, I will write another blog post about the delusion society has placed on roles of men and women. You won’t like it but I don’t care.
Men- Society has always been easier on fast men. The hype is legion and the excuses are more.Here are a few of each.
Hype: Women love a man that has been with many women because that means he will know what he’s doing in bed. If I can sleep with many women, I am a stud…a god among men…a sexual fantasy for all women I choose to grace with my body…gag-hurl.
Excuses: He has “needs”, he’s sowing his wild oats, he will grow out of it and settle down, men are more physical than women and therefore need sex more….blah, blah, blah.
Reality: **News alert**Men that sleep with a lot of women will not know what they are doing because every woman is different and to know her, you must study her. That takes years, bright one. Men that sleep with many women are going to have some jacked-up realities and confuse sex with love. No, they are not the same. If we were like most other living creatures and sex was for population multiplication, then yes, it would be okay. But we are NOT like other living creatures. We yearn for connection. Yes, that is men and women. The disease rate of being promiscuous alone should scare the crap out of men, but the fact that they are NOT man enough to commit to one woman shows weakness in character and that translate to being a man-whore. A man-whore is a weak man. Weak men are not sexy, no matter how ripped their abs are.
Women- Used to be, all women that slept with more than the man they married were labeled whores and outcasts. Not really fair, but life isn’t. Cry me a river. We have come a long way in this country in trying to equalize the women with the men. I don’t think women knew what they were asking.
Hype: Women that sleep with many men must be sexy and beautiful or men wouldn’t sleep with them. She is a goddess…a sign of success…power…equality…lie detector is blaring in my ears.
Excuses: She couldn’t help herself…it was love, she needed something to fill the void in her life, she really wanted to be a mother without the weight of a man leeching onto her. They are only good for a roll in the hay…selfish much?
Reality: Face it, you are a whore if you are sleeping with many men. Good news. It is fully curable. Fact is, most men have an ugly girl story and him sleeping with you does not mean you are any of the things listed above. It usually means you were convenient. Sorry, hun. Sex is also not power. Sex, by itself, puts you in the same class as the wild animals you see on NatGeo. Is that what you want? Really? Oh, and I know that you can have an abortion if your pill didn’t work, but that is murder. Do you really want to be a whore and a murderer? Have a little respect for yourself.
Hype: Busy day? No worries. We have just what you need, and all in less than five minutes through the drive-thru. Cheap enough for every day of the week. Fun for the whole family. We also have healthy choices for those conscious of their bodies.
Reality: You just put toxic waste into your engine 7 times this week. How do you think that is going to turn out? And even those “healthy” choices at the Micky-Ds are processed. I’m not saying never eat fast food, but you might want to think about learning how to cook…something that doesn’t come in a frozen box. The obesity rate in this country is through the roof. Think there might be a connection?
Reality: Bunnies breed fast…with no pleasure…no connection…no fulfillment other than population multiplication. They have to have lots of babies because they are on the menu for many other creatures in the wild. Are you a creature in the wild? Do you want to be a bunny?
Slow down, people. Life is meant to be savored and cared for. Going fast will not bring you happiness, but it will bring you a whole lot of grief.
Peace, love and God’s will.
