It is quite obvious that feminists campaign against pornography and prostitution on a societal level. On the group-level, women commonly attempt to slut-shame other women, or bully their better looking peers. Arguably, the motivation behind these actions is to keep the price of pussy high. Alek Novy so fittingly calls this the “pussy cartel”, which colludes in order to artificially constrain the supply of pussy to the market.
Let’s be a bit creative for a moment and assume that you lived in a place where prostitution was perfectly legal and dirt cheap. “But, Aaron, where is that mystical wonderland to be found?”, you may ask. That’s easy. Get a middle class income in the West, and take a vacation in Thailand. Once a guy regaled me with stories of “blow job bars” where you walk in, order a drink and then pick one of 50 or 60 girls of a decent quality to, um, serve you. Alternatively, become financially very well off and find a Western country where whoring is not sanctioned. Thus, you see that this is not a complete fantasy. We’ll get to a different evaluation of the monetary cost of whoring at the end of this post, though.
What I want to get at is the following: put yourself in a position where money was not much of a concern for you, and sex was easy to acquire. Would you then actively pursue women? This is a serious question as it aims at what you hope to get out of interacting with women. As my post on the time cost of women highlighted, the opportunity cost of pickup can be staggering. With this post I intend to encourage those of you who fantasize about having a girlfriend to question what you really want to get out of a relationship.
In my experience, it is not at all uncommon that guys only want to get laid. Yet, as they are not able to get one-night stands, and think it is “immoral” to pay for sex, they enter relationships that are highly disadvantageous for them. Someone should have told them that you always pay in one way or the other for sex. Jim wouldn’t be honest with himself, so now he is stuck with a sub-par woman with an attitude who barely puts out. From then on it will only get worse as he may end up tolerating gradually worsening behavior while getting hardly anything out of the relationship. In the worst case, she will ruin his health and finances, heck, his entire life. And all that just because poor Jim was unable to admit to himself that all he wanted was sex! What he got was, to put it poetically, an albatross. There are guys out there that buy some bitch a house, get laid once every three months, if they are lucky, and end up getting fucked hard and deep in divorce court. The lawyer of his ex doesn’t even bother to use lube. Compared to that outcome, even top-shelf escorts are dirt cheap.
