Alice Eagly, the renowned psychology researcher, has long argued that patterned differences in behavior between the sexes are not shaped by evolution, but by the differences in social roles.
Social roles over time produce differences in abilities, expectations and opportunities, which are then mistakenly perceived as innate and natural.
Social change invariably begets a change in consciousness.
The classic wife narrative (find a husband, have children, raise them, then go knit in the rocking chair) is all but extinct.
Those with money, knowledge, social freedom and confidence can realize broader aspirations, and shape their own paths regardless of their gender.
“In the past women had to partner up with a man who could support her," said Susan Sarandon, currently in a relationship with a man 30 years her junior.
After all, women are more financially independent today than ever before. S., for the first time in history, the number of women in the labor market exceeds the number of men.
recently published an interesting article about an advertising executive named Cindy Gallop, a successful businesswoman in her fifties, with the means and the appetite for action, who has turned her sexual experiences with young men into a protest of sorts, along with, of course, a TED conference talk and the obligatory web site.Even those who love to watch car chases in the movies may not want to advocate that young people learn how to drive from the movies or engage in wild car chases around town.Porn is sexual entertainment, titillation, distraction, or self-medication, but it’s not supposed to be taken literally as an account of how people generally have sex.In real life sex you sometimes need to go quietly, so as not to wake up the children.The problem with using porn as sex education is that not everything that’s fun to watch is also fun or sensible to do.In roughly a fifth of American families, women are the main breadwinners.When women are more independent financially, they have more power, more choices, and more influence.The scientific data are scant, but anecdotally at least, it appears that the ‘cougar’ phenomenon—relatively older women choosing sexual relationships with younger men—is experiencing a flowering of sorts.There are a number of plausible reasons for the uptick in older woman-younger man couplings.In the real world most women need proper clitoral stimulation to achieve orgasm. In real sex, however, partners often enjoy touching each other all over their bodies, before, during, and after genital contact.In porn, all women crave deep, choking and gagging oral sex, and can’t wait to swallow the male’s ejaculate. In porn all the women scream and squeal with delight constantly.
