So! Last week was quite interesting over here, wasn't it?
First we dug deep into the issue of whether it’s easier for men or women to get sex on demand. Then after I did an experiment proving that it is not as easy for women to get sex as men think it is, we had quite another spirited debate.
Never ones to let me be right about anything, two of my least favourite male commenters decided to conduct similar experiments of their own to prove….well I’m not quite too sure what exactly they were trying to prove. I guess that men cannot get sex any time they want, which changes absolutely nothing about the results of my test last week. They both wrote about their experiments, let’s take a look, shall we?
First up, fan favourite Sam Sharpe.
We know what the ladies think. We know what the gents think. We also know the results of Max’s experiment. Well, in the spirit of gender equality and following Max’s glorious path, I conducted my own experiment. Here are the parameters:
-All of the women had to live in Toronto
-None of them could be in a relationship
-They all had to be straight and none of them could be virgins
-They had to be women that were unlikely to have read yesterday’s post (can’t have anyone fucking me just to prove a point)
-I’ve already slept with four of the five women at some point.
Now, unlike Max I couldn’t send them all the same message. I know each of these women relatively well and trust me when I say I have to approach each one differently (I think this further illustrates that you ladies have it easier). WARNING: Please excuse the lameness of the messages I sent. I couldn’t come up with anything good. Anyway here’s what happened.
Subject #1: Codename – Pipes
Stats: Former co-worker. Flirted hard. Really hard during our time as colleagues. On one occasion she drunkenly propositioned me at the company Christmas party. We went out for drinks on another occasion. She subsequently told me “the ball is in your court”. We have mutual friends, so I see her fairly regularly.
Message: Hey, Free tonight? Come by and have a few drinks. Sent at 6:45pm.
No response as of 11:30pm.
Subject #2: Codename – Old Yeller
Stats: Another former co-worker. We had an intense but short-lived fling back in the day. We keep in touch.
Message: What’s up? Want to hang out tonight? Play a little PS3 (note: PS3 was our code for sex). Sent at 6:50pm
Response: (received at 6:53pm) Sure but only if you come to my place.
Subject #3: Codename – Poison (think big butt and a smile)
Stats: Friend of a friend. Former friend with benefits.
Message: Are you free to rendez vous ce soir? Sent at 6:43pm
Response: (received at 10:15pm) No thank you.
Subject #4: Codename – Doctor Doctor
Stats: Long time friend. We dated for a brief period but went back to being friends. Really busy in her professional life, doesn’t have much time for the personal. Based on recent conversations we’ve had and things I’ve heard through the grapevine, she wouldn’t mind having a dial-a-dick but would rather be in a relationship. She recently texted me asking to hang out but I had yet to get back to her.
Message: Drinks and more tonight. Are you free and interested? Sent at 6:55pm
Response: (received at 7:00pm) Hey Sam – I think you sent me this txt in error. have a good night! Lol.
Subject #5: Codename – The Bookmark
Stats: We’ve got this on/off thing going. She’s really busy, really focused on her career. We spend a lot of time together in spurts and then won’t see each other for weeks or more.
Message: I think you should come over and spend some naked time with me. Sent at 6:46pm
Response: (received at 7:00pm) Come here instead.
In the end, I didn’t end up getting any pum. Partially because the responses were lukewarm and partially because there was no way in hell I was leaving my apartment last night. I must admit that the ladies responded more favourably than I expected. Still. I only received two conditional yeses, whereas Max received three. Either way, I don’t think the results of my experiments or the results of Max’s experiments swayed opinions in any significant way.
Next up, the Mad Scientist himself:
In a nutshell Max wrote a self-fulfilling post attempting to explain why women can’t get sex anytime they want. Of course the men who commented called her on her bull$hit and the women co-signed her to no end. I felt if you looked at the sex on the simplest level (void of emotions and social stigma) women could easily get sex way easier than men. My logic is at the end of the day its women who decide if sex takes place, not the other way around.
In order to prove her point Max decided to conduct a social experiment. She offered sex to 5 men to see who was right or wrong in the debate. I decided to conduct my own social experiment using a similar platform. I say a similar platform and not the exact because a few variables have been added.
- I live in Nashville, not Toronto
- I conducted the experiment on a Friday night as opposed to a Wednesday night (it’s been my experience that people are more prone to participate in their carnal desires during the weekend).
- I’m pretty sure one of the women I would text would have read Max’s post prior.
So let’s get into it [||]. Here are my subjects:
A. Codename: Mary
Back Story: Mary is a doctor I met a couple years back. We never slept together but came close a couple of times. Things just fizzled out but I see her around every now and then. She probably thinks I’m an asshole who only wanted sex. Really wasn’t the case.
B. Codename: Lauren
Back Story: Lauren is a friend that I met through another friend. Another woman who I never had sex with but came close a couple times. We are better served as just friends now but I think there is still some type of sexual tension between us.
C. Codename: Jazmine
Back Story: Jazmine and I had instant sexual tension when we first met. We ended up sleeping together over the course of a couple months on a No Strings Attached relationship. She got tired of our arrangement and now we’re just cool now. No sex involved.
D. Codename: Rachel
Back Story: I met Rachel at some club about 3 years ago. She approached me because we all know that I don’t approach strangers. Either way we hung out a couple of times but we’re still cool. I see her out and about occasionally.
E. Codename: Janet
Back Story: I met Janet years ago and we’ve been friends since. We used to have a sexual relationship but I put an end to that. She still calls me from time to time.
Now that we have the subjects, here is the text that I sent out at 6:34pm:
“So its been a while since I’ve gotten any. What are you doing tonight?”
First response comes from Mary at 6:35pm:
Me: Its Tunde
Mary: I’m trying to figure out what u talking bout
Me: I thought it was pretty straight forward
Mary: So why the hell r u texting me?
One win for the fellas.
Next response comes from Lauren at 6:35pm:
Lauren: Wth? Lol Tunde, you know this is Lauren, right?
Lauren: Did you mean to text me that?
Lauren: You drunk? Lol
Me: Nope. Not in the least bit
Lauren: Then WTH?! Lol
Me: Nothing. Nevermind
Two wins for the fellas. At this point I’m like “Yeah. I told you so Max.”
Phone vibrates. Next response is from Janet at 6:36pm:
Janet: Sorry…I’m on my way to Atl. Today is my bday
Me: Oh ok. Have fun!
This is inconclusive data at best.
6:44pm, text from Rachel:
Rachel: Wrong Number
Me: (looking at my phone) o_0
3 out of 3 so far (throwing out Janet since she was out of town)
At this point I’m thinking that Jazmine is not going to respond at all. 7:21pm and my phone vibrates:
Jazmine: Nice blog today. Brought back some memories. [Author’s note: She was referring to my post from 1/14 No Strings Attached]
Jazmine: Guessing that’s what motivated that text
Jazmine: We had a good thing going lots of fun. The one and only time I ever did something like that. I think about it from time to time actually. Completely out of character…But I’m seeing someone right now so it wouldn’t be right.
Me: I understand. We’ll always have our memories.
So as far as my social experiment I was 0 for 4. Out of that 4 only one didn’t hit me with a negative response. I think that based on this small sample sized experiment we can conclude that it is indeed easier for women to have sex whenever they want when compared to men.
So what say you? How can you deny facts? Women are you ready to admit that you were wrong?
First. Let me heave an enormous sigh. At these two. Second let me say that whether it was easy or not for these two fools to get sex has absolutely no bearing on whether it’s easy for a woman or whether I could have gotten sex from the men I contacted. All it proves it that these two can’t get sex on demand any more easily than I could.
At the end of the day I think what we can all take away from this madness is that it’s not easy for anyone to get sex when they want it. But what say you all? Do you feel as though the men proved the women wrong? See any flaws in the men’s experiments? Did your original opinion change after these posts? Speak on it in the comments.
