Sex is Cheap? Why Young Men Have the Upperhand

Sorry folks, but this just does not match up with what I see in reality...especially in the States. I still go out and do approaches, so I'm not out of touch. Yes I am engaged to be married but it doesn't hurt to just approach women just to see if they're up for chatting or if I'm still good enough.

Its hard to believe that we would be seeing not a drecreased ratio of women but an increase in their relative numbers. I find it rather hard to believe.
If its so easy to get sex, why aren't women more open to talking or dates?

The whole article hinges on sexual economics. On paper I thought was great was the one by Vohs, et al. They talk about sexual economics. I think I did a post here a few months back on it.

Its hard to come to the conclusion that we're on the other side of the curve and that men have the power. I don't find that we do, in general. I know many single guys who are cronically single.
A few of them actually go out and talk to girls so I just don't understand how this all adds up.

Please comment.

I also hope Steve gets a chance to read this. And Its not too heady this time.

Sex is only easy and cheap for whatever guys are considered "alpha" in society. So for a minority of guys, sex IS cheap. And from my experience, these kinds of guys don't understand a guy who can't get laid.

Here's a list of archetypical guys who get laid easily in America:

Jocks in school or other pro athletes for the A-list sports (baseball, basketball, football, etc..) If you're semi-pro or pro then it's ridiculously simple.

Musicians, DJs, actors, dancers etc..

The bad boys in their own niche. The bikers, gangbanger thugs, guidos, etc..


That's about it. If you're too clean cut, well adjusted, the wrong race or religion, or lacking in athletic prowess then it sucks to be you.
