Re: Sex Education and Applied Psychology?
In other words, it's not clear that most highschool boys are going to benefit over much from understanding how women's bodies work, if they don't understand how their minds work.
Some of what I read lately strongly indicates that women are basically hardwired to respond to certain kinds of authority figures and certain kinds of behavior, and that in particular, trying to act or behave too much like a Christian, like a nice guy, or like any sort of a guy who's attended one too many political correctness or women's studies classes in front of them is basically a formula for failure.
Thus I'd be curious: what if anything do they teach on such topics?
2 completely seperate issues here Gunga. One is the way the body works and the other is who you are attracted to. There is no class in the world that can teach young (or old) men how to attract any woman they want and keep them happy once they have them. That requres field work and a lot of trial and error. (Mostly error.) It's a life's work and most of us will probably never get beyond the basics.
I'll agree with Gunga and ebrown on this -
The sociological studies seem to point to women being hardwired to want a man that will provide for them and their children. Men seem to want to spread their genes around. Not that either sex is tied to that completely.
When it comes to what is attractive it isn't just based on hardwiring. It is based on socialization. Why do women or men want someone like "dear ole Dad" or "Just like Mom?" Probably because they are trained to think that is normal. If you are a nice guy, or a Christian, or attend too many womens studies classes doesn't preclude you from being attractive to some people. The kicker might be it isn't the types of women you are attracted to, but in the case of men does it really matter at that age?
