Why Roissy is Right

A Daily Mail story about erotic fiction stimulating wealthy New York Housewives shows how Roissy is right. Recently, Roissy noted that women desire to dominated. Which is by the way, a luxury good. Domination and control was not possible in North-West Europe, where men were often absent for long periods, fishing, trading, or raiding, or perhaps all three. There was no spare energy available to stimulate bored housewives, who lived lives “full of interest.” Mostly on the order of avoiding dying in childbirth, disease, keeping their children alive, and other issues that are decidedly not First World Problems.

Pam, another Upper East Side mother, told the Post that Fifty Shades ‘totally makes you horny … I think everyone has totally admitted to that.’

That ‘everyone’ includes Dawn, a 27-year-old who lives in New York’s Financial District. She told the newspaper that the book is blush-inducing.

‘Every time I pick up this book,’ she explained, ‘within five minutes of reading it, I’m already tingling below the belt.’

The Upper East Side local said: ‘The person who recommended it to me said, “It will make you want to have sex with your husband.” And it did!’

She is not alone – another mother told the paper that the book is having the magical effect of boosting sex lives across the well-heeled neighbourhood.

The novel in question, “Fifty Shades of Grey” concerns a billionaire 27 year old businessman who uses bondage and sex play to dominate a young woman who falls in love with him. Upper East Side “First World Problems” women who find their husbands otherwise sexless, find the novel arousing. But that is a function of luxury, and a culture sliding into (if it has not yet arrived) decadence at a frightening speed. Failing to combat the evils of affluence, by a strong social cohesion to force everyone to adhere to at least boundaries of behavior.

Publicist Alison Brod told the newspaper that the novel is ‘the new Kabbalah for female bonding in this city’ – and is spreading its X-rated charms. ‘I found myself explaining what BDSM was to some of the moms at Saturday morning basketball.’

‘Every time I pick up this book, within five minutes of reading it, I’m already tingling below the belt’

One 40-year-old mother-of-three said that Fifty Shades is ‘just a fun escape from the daily mundane of trudging kids around and, you know, marriage’.

Having started posting BDSM fiction online, author EL James piqued the interest of small Australian publisher, The Writers’ Coffee Shop, who took a leap of faith by publishing Fifty Shades of Grey in May 2011, followed by Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed, on sale since January.

The newspaper likens the story to Twilight for grown-ups, suggesting it has become something of a cult tome among mothers, who, according to New Jersey mom, Alyssa Goldman, call it simply ‘The Book’.

Once upon a time, women (and men) did not seek to escape marriage and family, but embraced it. Knowing how fragile, how temporary, and how priceless it therefore was. Most of the elite women, those who shape public opinion, live in a bubble of fantasy. The author, a TV executive in West London, being one of them. Billionaire 27 year old businessmen do not look like romance novel heroes, nor do they lead beautiful young women into bondage games. They look, in fact like this guy:

The female fantasy of rich, bored housewives is a bubble ready to burst. It is not sustainable, depending on as it does, of cheap energy and US military dominance. Big cities including particularly New York are targets for jihadis, world-wide. Its like a bug light drawing insects at night, the very existence of so many rich infidels attracts attacks, when coupled with weakness. See Moscow, the Nord-Ost Theater, apartment block bombings, and the like. Or Madrid. Or London. Or Paris. Big cities also need cheap energy, to move all that waste around, provide power for elevators and lights, pump water up into high rises and the like. New York like all mega-cities, cannot survive on its own, and depends on the outside for food, water, power, and sewage treatment.

If women today, particularly among the rich and bored, crave brutal dominance, this has not been the case for most of history. Most women craved security — a husband that would not drink away his wages, would work faithfully to support the family, because that meant the difference between life and death. Quite literally. All that dominance craving is a sign of a bubble that is ready to burst. An assumption that safety, security, and stability are eternal.

A quick perusal of Western urban history would suggest this is not so. That plagues, riots, sieges, starvation, and high rates of violence characterize cities in Western Europe and the Americas. Regression to the mean would imply that the current safety and security of places like New York, will at least regress to say 1970’s norms, and very possibly to 1840’s through 1860’s norms. But in the meantime, Roissy is right.

    I have to strongly disagree with you. Security was preffered only and only when women were not able to feed their kids on their own.

  3. Krakonos — that was my point.

      Great comment!

      Truly, how can any reasonable and hardworking men possibly give a flying shit about the fates of such hateful women who would *never* give us the the time of day? Not because we are bad, but because we are good!

    “The female fantasy of rich, bored housewives is a bubble ready to burst”

    In the mean time, turn ’em over your knee and give your woman a good hard spanking.

    They LOVE that and get so wet. My lady has an orgasm and sometimes squirts just from getting spanked.

  6. Mike says:

    You do make a good point. For most of human history, women would have preferred the wage earning, decent guy as husband that these women are bored with. Eventually the bubble will burst though.

    • Anonymous says:

      Have you entertained the thought that the reason these women are bored with the guys is because they were not a match in the first place? I’m not defending either or, what I’m saying is that when you choose a partner for the wrong reasons, you’ll end up bored or hurt. It doesn’t mean necessarily the guy’s inadequate or “bad” or the woman a “crazed slut craving domination.” A lot of people don’t and, sadly, will never know what true love is.

      • Mike says:

        I think that’s true for the modern age, where we associate romantic love as the reason to marry. But my point is that prior to our well fed era, marriage was a matter of survival for women, so they were looking for other attributes other than “chemistry.”

    nice refresher read there whiskeybrah.

    you thinking maybe this whole bubble pops around our heads?

  8. Jelly Bean says:

    Whatever. Erotic fiction is women’s porn, and it isn’t a new phenomenon. Should women take the scenarios in their boyfriends’ porn as pointers in regards to what men really want from women? Do men really want a woman they could triple team with their brothers and best friends? Is your dream wife someone who’d happily suck off 2 random men in front of you, to spice things up? Rape has been known as the most prevalent female fantasy for a while now. Do you understand the difference between real life desire and a specific situational fantasy? Since you can’t see my face, I’ll admit that to get MYSELF off, I tend to imagine being rough handled by a bunch of horn dogs who have no respect for me.That gets me wet enough. Meanwhile, were such a thing to come even remotely close to occurring, in real life, I’d shut down, dry up,, clamp shut and bleed a lot as well as vomit. That’s also why most women my age, 20s, don’t buy that porn is degrading to women either. It’s a masturbation aid rather than a tool to shape men’s real desires into a certain form. These aren’t one and the same.

    My personal theory is that the fact that men, generally, prefer their porn heroines to act like bitches in heat and that women, generally, like to read about men who use women play things is a good thing. Basically, men are getting of on an exaggerated dramatic representation of a woman’s actual, physical enjoyment of sex. And women are getting off on the exaggerated dramatic representation of a man getting his needs met in any way that is most satisfying for him.
    If I’m right, that would mean that, even though people need mutual attraction and emotional intimacy, they are most turned on by the thoughts of undilluted sexual pleasure of their partner.

    The line that troubles me in that article you quoted is, “This will make you want to have sex with your husband”. I hope she means that it makes her want to have sex with her husband right there and then, and not just in general. Because one shouldn’t need supporting materials to respond to one’s own mate.

    • Fakeemail says:

      Contrary, to popular belief the kind of porn you speak of is NOT really men’s fantasies; as in their “dream girls”. It’s rather their masochistic projection of themselves as beta males and the madonna/whore complex.

    • john says:

      Uhm,can you tell us more about the horn dogs and what theyre doing to you? Is there ever another woman…like your mom?

      • Jelly Bean says:

        You know, the usual. Mom’s making pancakes in the kitchen. They are magic pancakes and I know I’ll get to eat as many as i want without gaining weight as soon as the horn dogs are done. It;s a fantasy, after all… ‘xcuse me, I’ll be back in 10…

    • asdf says:

      “Meanwhile, were such a thing to come even remotely close to occurring, in real life, I’d shut down, dry up,, clamp shut and bleed a lot as well as vomit.”

      You don’t know that. You want to believe it, and it may be true. However, we have tons of evidence that when the fantasy becomes reality women love it even more.

      • Jelly Bean says:

        I do know it the same way you know if you’d be curious to experiment with men cause it’s kind of hot, or if it absolutely doesn’t interest you. There’s nothing “I want to believe” because if I were into violent or anonymous bangs, I’d roll with it. Most women are not, and it makes sense from an evolutionary perspective. Human beings are, by nature, polygamous creatures. That’s a biological fact. In natural polygamy, females insure the healthiest, most fit offsprings by CHOOSING the male they consider to be best (regardless of how many females already chose him. A male doesn’t prove himself to be the most fit by overpowering a female because the majority of males can overpower the majority of females. It’s not THE mark of good health and ability. Observed qualities are much better indicators. Therefore, women who are into rape are kind of like the women who are into serial killers. It’s some sort of a rare, but ever present mental disorder. My guess is that it’s a case of the subconscious taking an attractive quality-assertiveness- and fetishizing it to the extreme. Men who are into size “M” breasts are similar. Makes perfect sense why men would like big breasts, but not that big, not so big that they indicate some sort of a disorder. Another example are the men who’ll f*ck any hole, including other men’s anuses and those of little children. They exist, and they will always exist, but as a percentage of the male population, they will always be rare. Makes sense why men in nature would be willing to screw almost anyone to pass on their genes, but not actually everyone. Makes sense why women like an assertive man, but not that assertive.

        As for personal experience, in my freshman year of college, there was a tall, dark and handsome athlete living on my floor. He was nice to me. One night, he came back to the dorm after having a few drinks and smoking a couple of joints. Still, he was very strong and very steady on his feet. He told me I was a cute little thing, grabbed me and started to drag me towards his bedroom. I started sobbing and crying loudly. Wasn’t turned on in the least. He saw buckets of snot all over the place and snapped out of it.

        Also, I take pleasure in giving my boyfriend whatever he wants or might possibly want, extra people or other creatures aside. So, he asked for some bondage games just because he knew he could. Seeing him turned on turned me on, but the scenario itself did nothing for me. It was fine because it wasn’t real, but it wasn’t hot in any extra or special way that was different from every other time that my boyfriend was near, naked and excited.

      • asdf says:

        Yes, women don’t want to get raped by inferior men. But many do like getting raped by superior men. A guy with a little rape in him is more likely to procreate then one without, all other factors held equal.

        Now, there are things associated with rape that can overwhelm that urge. So lack of wanting to get raped doesn’t mean the desire doesn’t exist. Homosexuality is a good example. Most everyone falls somewhere on the Kinsey scale, even if they are very hetero they have some homo and vice versa. But in our society people divide fiercely into camps with few choosing bi. There are reasons for this outside of pure sexual desire. I’m sure there are many people so afraid of the societal repercussions of playing for the other team they suppress their desire, even at a subconscious level as a defense mechanism. In a more permitting society like ancient Greece people would express those desires more.

  9. krakonos says:

    @Whiskey
    My point was different. We are far away (generations) from the point when conditions are so bad that women cannot feed their kids without assistance of state.
    Even if GDP of the USA goes down lets say to 1/4th or 1/10th of current values, it is still enough to feed the state and its welfare programs. When current culture remains the system can perpetuate itself until:
    -Betas (willingness to collaborate, work hard, take care of children, intelligence) are outbred from society.
    -Culture changes (this is not going to happen from inside).
    -Some outer power overtakes western civ.

    If the process continues long enough the West can look like, lets say Haiti.

    “Mom’s making pancakes in the kitchen.” That is so hot! She’s nude,right?

    • Jelly Bean says:

      I don’t know. She’ll be gone by the time I make it there. I gotta satisfy more than one dude here, you understand, and mom, well, she can’t stay in the kitchen forever. But there’s lot’s of jam and maple syrup, real maple syrup. THAT’s hot. Okay… gotta run…

    Why Chicks dig Jerks

    “All of which is to say that there is good evidence and good theory behind the belief that chicks dig jerks — mildly psychopathic men with lots of testosterone and little empathy. (Or, if you want to take the Richard Dawkins view, chicks’ genes dig jerks.) Those who do will have relatively more sons. And what will those sons be like? It is worth keeping in mind that those traits are heritable.”

  12. OzGirlie says:

    Whiskey, could you say something about the popularity of the show Big Love? Do you think it plays into women’s fantasies about getting an alpha, even if they have to share him?

  13. Whitehall says:

    “To every thing, there is a season.

    Our great evolutionary advantage as a species is our adaptability. Most species are completely hardwired in their behavior and have little room to adjust to changing circumstances except move on to where they do fit.

    Humans can be dirt diggers, hunters, gatherers, fisherman, thiefs, priests, loners, conformists, and so on. We can live in trees, on the savannah, in deserts, on islands, on ice, in cities.

    Women can be raped, they can host gangbangs, they can have only one husband and lover their whole lives. They can be serial monogamists or polygamists.

    “To every thing, there is a season.”

    But the season has been changing rapidly the last 200 years with the industrial revolutions and the unimagined energies it has released.

    Our problem is to surf the wave of change and ensure that our individual genes survive and multiply.

  14. OzGirlie says:

    LOL. Are those your fantasies, Claire???

  15. Cliff Arroyo says:

    “I’m Claire’s friend, by the way”

    “Friend”? Is that what they’re calling multiple personalities now?

    Many or most women have fantasies of being overcome by a sexy and powerful man who wont’ take no for an answer. Big deal. No reason to be so defensive about it. Many women also occasionally like to go through very mild and watered down real life versions of this (with a man they’re already attracted to). Again, this is not exactly news.

    Of course that doesn’t mean most women want the real life violent rape experience (the fantasies are after all carefully choreographed and the fantasizer remains in control the whole time). A lot of spectrum* guys don’t get that.

    *my new name for guys on the autistic spectrum

    • Cliff Arroyo says:

      Anonymous/Claire/Michael,

      Come on, work up, dig down deep and try to destroy my world! It might even make you feel better about the murky dark side of female sexuality.

  16. Brendan says:

    Wow, your new blog has attracted quite a few trolls, Whiskey. Interesting.

  17. Whitehall says:

    The core belief of conservatives is that people are what they are – you can’t change the biology of homo sapiens.

    Progressives think they can create “The New Man” as the Soviets called him (and her.) The fact that they have failed time and time again doesn’t seem to deter them from trying yet again.

    The reality is that rape is a significant part of our biological background and in our DNA. Females of our species have genetic adaptations to deal with rape and violence. Some of those adaptations even REWARD the rapist – rape causes women to ovulate and the odds of impregnation from rape are higher per occurence than for consensual sex.

    No one here is saying that women “should be raped” or even consciously seek it. What is, just is, even buried within the female psyche.

  18. Whitehall says:

    I would recommend that “Anonymous” read a book called “Sperm Wars.” In fact the odds are that there was a rapist in his genetic past, probably within 10 generations (the exact statistic is in the book.)

    That, and take some Valium or other chill pill. No one is arguing for a moral basis for rape, only that it exists in nature, including human nature.

    • Jelly Bean says:

      Rape exists in the human nature of the RAPIST (usually male), not the one being raped. Murder, too, exists within the depths of human nature. Some people, maybe a lot of people, are potential murderers. However, it would be silly to say that being a potential murder victim is a part of human nature. The vast majority of human beings don’t secretly desire to be murdered, deep down inside. All that doesn’t interfere with the fact that you and I have murderers and murder victims somewhere in our family trees. Of course it makes sense for men to have some innate desire to rape deep in their psyche (btw, I’m not at all saying that most men are potential rapists waiting to happen, not at all). After all a man’s best biological strategy is to spread his seed into as many women as possible, willing or unwilling. However, the best biological strategy for a woman is to save her limited reproductive resources for a man she CHOOSES as the fittest male available. Therefore, it doesn’t make sense for most women to have an innate desire to be raped. Saying that woman desire to be raped by the man that they already chose as their preferred reproductive partner doesn’t make sense. If she already chose him, than it’s not rape. I know, I know, the feminists of your childhood told you that it’s always rape unless you got a written permission certified by a public notary, and even then, it’s not set in stone. But we’re out of their ear shot here, so let’s call things by their proper names.

  19. MGE says:

    Here is your typical specimen of urban white professional woman:

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/joelle-caputa

    She is a PR account exec who recently divorced her husband, whom she described as “the perfect man,” because she “just wasn’t happy.” She is now writing the book “Trash the Dress: Stories of Celebrating Divorce in your 20s to show women that the end of marriage in their 20s is just the beginning of the lives they were meant to lead.”

  20. I’m blasting this comment off in a hurry, so please pardon any incoherence.

    It’s depressing reading these comments. The blase attitudes about the depraved fantasies people have. The problem may not be the mere existence of such fantasies, but rather the development of them into accepted cultural norms. And all the snarky “don’t judge me, I’m actually normal since these fantasies are grounded in Evolution and besides, nobody really wants it to happen in real life” type of arguments. There’s something awry about that, but I don’t have the time or energy to pursue it.

    The commenters defending the fantasies are proving some of Whiskey’s points, such as:

    “Once upon a time, women (and men) did not seek to escape marriage and family, but embraced it. Knowing how fragile, how temporary, and how priceless it therefore was. Most of the elite women, those who shape public opinion, live in a bubble of fantasy….”

    “If women today, particularly among the rich and bored, crave brutal dominance, this has not been the case for most of history. Most women craved security — a husband that would not drink away his wages, would work faithfully to support the family, because that meant the difference between life and death. Quite literally. All that dominance craving is a sign of a bubble that is ready to burst. An assumption that safety, security, and stability are eternal. ”

    I doubt there’s such a nice safe clean delineation between discretionary fantasy and sociological reality. Chicks like Jelly Bean can have their fantasies, easy enough. No harm, right? (Hell, I’ve had “naughty” fantasies too, lots of them.) But perhaps her/our willingness to publicly share them with total strangers worldwide is one of the factors leading to the fantasy bubble that is undermining the civil society, and ironically may lead to very same fantasy-become-reality that Jelly Bean claims turns her off.

    Whiskey, imho, is simply on the same page as Charles Murray, regarding how cultural mores that are a luxury for the elites tend to trickle down to lower classes where they then wreak social havoc.

  21. Whitehall says:

    My apologies to the sincere commenters here for feeding the trolls like “Anonymous.”

    Their intent is obviously to make any informed discussion so odious and cluttered with emotional noise that we cease to dispassionately discuss the issues and quit communicating.

    • Pat says:

      Whitehall, the only troll here is YOU. In reading all your previous comments, you do support, encourage and believe RAPE is a healthy thing. You tried giving a pseudo-science spin at the end, but it came a little too late. The comments from that ANONYMOUS person are over the top just like yours – just on the opposite end of the spectrum. The reason why you and JellyBean (some name!) and ‘Cliff Arroyo’ got touchy is because that Anonymous started mentioning your families. That’s because he or she wanted you to think about the whole topic from a personal perspective and what better way to do it than making you think of having your mother, sister, aunt, or any other female relative being raped. By also telling you their Christian, Anonymous draw the difference between being a true Christian, conservative and simply calling yourself one while espousing ideas that have nothing to do with Christianity. You guys fell for it big time without realizing it. Anonymous succeeded at getting you heated up. And,no, I’m neither anonymous nor a troll. My name is Pat and don’t need to hide from anyone.

      • Cliff Arroyo says:

        You misunderstand Whitehall (who I don’t entirely agree with but he has a point or so)

        In a modern technological society rape is a moral issue. In purely evolutionary terms it isn’t. Evolutionary adaptations are full of processes that will strike modern humans as immoral.

        If, within a species, males who rape (however you define that) reproduce more then the entire species will move in that direction and females that don’t adapt to it will die out. In humans rape doesn’t give a big evolutionary advantage (or there would be far more of it). But it’s not been selected away for either. That doesn’t mean it’s morally acceptable now but applying modern morals to evolutionary processes is …. dumb.

        It’s also not entirely clear that rape is the same kind of moral issue in pre-history (or pre-modern history for that matter). History is full of invaders killing males in a group and taking the females as wives or concubines. Women at some level have adapted to that or popular fiction wouldn’t be full of barbie and caveman plotlines (that appeal to many women).

        And (to get back to whiskey’s favorite hobby horse) the current feminist condemnation of rape has been culturally successful largely because of the beta males that no woman fantasizes about. The more they’re disenfranchized and selected against in favor of sexy bad boys the weaker that whole structure is going to become. It still depends on some males (betas) protecting women from predatory alphas. When they stop (and they will) we’re back in the jungle.

      • Cliff Arroyo says:

        “‘Cliff Arroyo’ got touchy is because that Anonymous started mentioning your families”

        No, I was just waiting for the troll to finally write something interesting. Still am. I don’t care what vile inanity spills from her keyboard.

Now, I am not asking for whiskey to give us his real name and address. But it would be nice to know something about this guy. I’d hate to think we are getting advice from a pimply 19 year old in his mom’s basement or a middle age loser. It would be nice to know if this guy is a real alpha and speaks from knowledge.

    Whiskey, care to elaborate a little?

    • Jelly Bean says:

      Okay, Steve Sailer seems to be a real, verifiable person. As for the others… Would it make you feel better if Whiskey came up with a cool background story about his mad skills with women, athletic stardom, a superhero alter ego that keeps a major city safe, as well as a medical degree, on the side? Why do you find Roissy credible, but not this dude? They are both just guys on the internet.

    • My interest is in culture and how the sexes view each other. If you’re looking for a pick-up guru, I’m not your guy. Roissy or Roosh will give you better advice. If you want to know how Twilight differs from Jane Austen novels, and what it shares with them, I’m your guy.

      I’m no Alpha male either — most guys just flat out are not. I’m a beta male. Harry Truman was no Alpha, despite being President. And before that a three-term Missouri Senator. Again my interest is culture, business, technology and how they intersect, mostly along gender lines. I have a deep interest in the future. I plan to live there.

    Why Baby Boomers Will Have a Troubled Retirement

    “Boomers and Home Equity : ….To cultivate a new generation of home buyers who can take on a mortgage, it is imperative that they do not already have a mortgage-sized debt before that. But the higher education industry got to this generation before the mortgage industry could, and many members of this generation have already signed away the first several years of their earnings to servicing their student loans in a rapidly inflating bubble (chart from The Atlantic, click to enlarge), amounting to some $867 Billion in indebtedness that is yet to abate.

    All Boomers Are Not Equal : Lest you think I am being harsh to Baby Boomers, there is another level of scrutiny here that cannot be exposed often enough. As I have established elsewhere, 70-80% of all government spending is a transfer from men to women,

    As it has become apparent that SS and Medicare are not sufficiently funded to meet the needs of Boomers, many women (in the NYT, no less) are openly rooting for men to die early so that they don’t consume the funds that would otherwise be collected by women (nevermind that the taxes paid into the system were mostly from men).”
