At least she's a cheap date
If we are to believe one of the world’s wealthiest feminists, the route to a man getting a rich and fulfilling sex life is to do more domestic chores. [Didact: The stupid... the FAIL... IT BURNS!!!]
And this “sex for housework” trade-off even has an unremittingly cringeworthy name.
“Choreplay” is being championed by Sheryl Sandberg, billionaire Facebook COO, uber-feminist and author of the #BanBossy and #LeanIn campaigns.
Though the word dates back to at least the start of the decade, it now forms part of Sandberg’s latest idea, "Lean In Together," which encourages women and men to fight for gender equality “in the boardroom and the bedroom”.
Sandberg thinks men need more carrot and less stick to help us achieve true gender equality, even if that means enticing us with the promise of sexual favours in order to get us to pull our weight around the house.
In the latest of her four-part 'Women at Work' series, entitled 'How Men Can Succeed in the Boardroom and the Bedroom' , she points out that “Couples who share chores equally have more sex. If men want to do something nice for their partners, instead of buying flowers, they should do laundry. Choreplay is real.”
Really? I think many men would probably disagree. The first barrier is the word itself. I challenge anyone to come up with a word that is singularly less erotic than “choreplay”, a verbal brewer’s droop if ever there was one.
At a stretch, it could be something that appeals to the sort of men who frequents Soho torture dungeons (“You want sex, boy? Well get down on your hands and knees and scrub that kitchen floor, you worm!”) but we're talking pretty niche.
To make it even less sexually charged, Sandberg’s previous buzzphrase – “Lean In” – has been stapled on as a prefix. So we have “Lean In Choreplay”.
It’s salt on the sex slug: it's anti-Viagra. It could only be less erotic if a consent form were needed in order to initiate “choreplay”.
The second, possibly bigger, annoyance is Sandberg’s baseline assumption – in line with the oft-repeated feminist narrative – that women do all the housework, even when both partners work. That might have been true of our dads, but my generation is pulling its weight.
As it happens, a Spanish study published a few months ago, based on 20 years worth of data on married couples in the US, found that men who regularly cook and clean have less sex than men who don't lift a finger, not more. But that's by the by.
|The only appropriate response|
|"Don't you go telling ME about how MEN are in charge at Facebook!"|
|And we're supposed to take sex advice from these two?!?|
Thus, in a gratifying confirmation of the blindingly obvious, women don’t even find men who do the dishes to be, well, dishy. Quelle surprise: no woman lusts after a man in rubber gloves.One final thought: if you were married to a billionaire like Sandberg and she still expected you to do the laundry, wouldn’t you man up and say, “Honey, how about we hire some home help to do this for us while we take an early night? I think we can afford it.”That way sex might be less chore, and more play. Unless “choreplay” is about something else: making men feel they have to “earn” everything in life, with sex being the ultimate “good boy” reward.
History is strewn with the wrecks of nations which have gained a little progressiveness at the cost of a great deal of hard manliness, and have thus prepared themselves for destruction as soon as the movements of the world gave a chance for it.
|Actually, feminism is just retarded. "Literally retarded, like a kid who takes 15 years to learn how to wave bye-bye and never does quite master patty-cake."|
