"Elder sex expert"?? You're taking sex advice from Mormons?

"Look at it this way: If foreskins made sex more difficult, R.R., evolutionary forces would've selected against foreskins and they would've disappeared long before we appeared."

Dan, Dan, Dan. this is just yet more evidence that GOD CREATED MAN with the FORESKIN precisely to make sex more difficult and less pleasurable. ;)

I haven't heard anything about excommunicating gun nuts like Jared Michael Padget, the Mormon leader/Troutdale school shooter.

Our patriarchic culture is very relevant, but we must remember that BOTH men and women participate in reinforcing this culture. Women who slut-shame other women? Part of the problem. Women who virgin shame men? Also part of the problem of reinforcing the patriarchic culture.

A huge amount of the coverage of Rodger’s murderous spree has been focused on his misogyny—brutal anger toward women—which dominates his video, and is central in his manifesto. The killings and coverage have launched a number of viral Twitter hash tag campaigns demanding an end to the horrors that this “women hating” attitude has manifested in society with stalking and violence.
But very little attention has been given to the overwhelming message of society that for heterosexual men—if you are not attracting women, if you are not getting laid—you are an utter failure. The dividing line between men who are desirable and have sex, and those who don’t, is often cruel and arbitrary. In the case of Rodger, his rejections likely had something to do with his affect, which suggested to girls and women that he wasn’t right for dating, a relationship or sex. We all know males who seem to be particularly klutzy around women, and don’t have a clue as to why they fail with the other gender. That failing and frequent rejection is devastating and can breed depression and worse.

An important component of our misogynist culture is being largely overlook--virgin shaming. Men are told that we are worthless unless we have had sex. I did not lose my virginity until I was twenty, about to enter my senior year in college. (My grandmother forbid me from dating during high school, so I was way behind everyone else and lacked confidence.) It really hurt me that even the feminists I was friends with made comments like, "he's just mad because he isn't getting any" or "he's not sexually frustrated--he knows how to maturbate." Comments like this PROMOTE a rape culture by pressuring young men to do ANYTHING--stupid, immoral, even illegal--to get sex. Would things have turned out the same in the California case if this guy had felt OK about himself being a virgin?
In my own case, this stigma led me to stay in some abusive relationships. One woman cut me off from friends and all activities I enjoyed, to focus all of my time with her. She was extremely jealous of any female friends, but she also cheated on me (as Dan often says is the case.) All she wanted to do when we were together was have sex--but sex interrupted by fights caused by her harshly criticizing my technique/lack of experience. "You should JUST KNOW what to do!" This manipulation caused me to stay with her by convincing me that she was all I could get.
I am against slut shaming. Men and women should be able to have as much consensual sex with willing partners as they wish. But the flipside that everyone forgets is that there is NOTHING WRONG with someone who is not sexually active, whether by choice or circumstance. STOP VIRGIN SHAMING, and there will be less incentive for men to be misogynist jerks.

"I want to have a couple of sex buddies or, preferably, a couple of friends with benefits."

What is the difference between a sex buddy and a friend with benefits?

Those birds were never married in the eyes of God! They were living together in sin! Hence, they can not be divorced.

"The position also echoes the service economy in its demand (mainly on women) of a convincing performance of pleasure."
It is obviously harder/impossible for the guy to FAKE an orgasm. That said, there is still a lot of pressure to give a convincing performance.

Well, that's what happens when you put Forest Gump in charge of the school system.
