On second thought,

posted by bitchphd
I suspect that women are a lot better and more practiced at talking about sex in thoughtful ways than men are. Yay feminism! But sad for the guys.

Unfortunately, I'm a woman, not a man. So I can't really write a clever and thoughtful and conversation-starting post about how straight guys feel about sex. (This, by the way, is the perpetual problem for a feminist who, like me, wants to include men in the conversation--inevitably some men will get pissy and say "why don't you talk about our issues," to which the obvious response is, "dude, I'm not a dude; maybe you should write about this stuff yourself?") So if there's some guy who is writing intelligently and well about these things, by all means link to him and have the conversation over there.

But anyway, I haven't seen much of that sort of thing. Men's convos about sex tend to be either (1) jokey; (2) entirely positive, as if someone has to advertise that sex is a good thing. It's weird. You guys are weird about sex, in this woman's opinion. Why is that?

Anyway, if you're inclined to want to talk about it, especially (but not exclusively; I won't presume to police tone) in a thoughtful or honest kinda way, you're welcome to do it here. Although like I said, I can't really do much to get you, ah, going. You're gonna have to take care of that yourself.

Btw, same rules here as in the previous thread. That's women only; this is men only.
