This is a comment by The Wet One on the post “It’s Okay to Want Sex“.
“It is truly a bizarre concept that women have “sex” and grant access to it. Neither men nor women can have sex without the other. Don’t believe me, read the lamentations of women in sexless marriages. That will really blow your understanding of male and female sexuality. I shared your view of men wanting sex and women wanting love (or some such partial nonsense). I’ve since learned that this is not quite true. No, not at all.
“It’s really bizarre to think that women own sex and portion it out to men. Men, in fact, own sex just as much as women do. They are just so much more willing to give it away. Thus, economic analysis enters into it.
“Anyways… Here’s to not saying ‘Women have it, men want it and the market sets the price.’ While this is true in a sense, it’s fundamentally wrong (except in true market situations which exist everywhere and have from time immemorial). “
