The comments that follow are awesome — and each is hugely upvoted. A small sampling:
21. Don’t take advice from a columnist that just spews generalizations on Yahoo.
22. Instead, read the Comments section for real advice
My stomach turned after reading this. If a woman wrote this, no man would want to know her. This is sick. Reason why some men stay players for life, just to remain sane. Even players know when a good woman comes along. Even a player can have a change of heart and or mind.
Such writ-ups are the corner-stones players are built on.
Yes, the “Twenty Commandments of Involuntary Celibacy” is in reference to a Yahoo post called “20 Ways to Please a Woman”, written by a female pop culture borg entity. Here’s a few gems of her vapid boilerplate:
Be understanding if we’re workaholics
Don Draper’s got nothing on us.
Because a woman loves nothing more than a man who only wants to see her five minutes a week, when she isn’t slaving away for the patriarchy.
Don’t expect us to diet
Being skinnier is not that high on our priority list.
But it is high on men’s priority lists. And women don’t stay happy for long when their boyfriends aren’t happy being with them.
Don’t expect us to be gym fiends
Aside from your average stress-busting yoga – but it’s more for the head, not the body. If we want abs, we’ll get them. But not for you.
This is something women tell themselves all the time, but the reality is that looking good feels good because your DNA directive is to make yourself as attractive as possible to men with options, thus ensuring better survival fitness for any future children.
Be cool with the fact that we make more money than you
We can go Dutch!
Then maybe your post should’ve been titled “20 Ways to Please a Man”.
Bring us cookies when we had a crappy day at work.
Storebought or from scratch, either way.
Because there’s nothing like fattening up your girlfriend to make it easier to break her heart and leave her.
Let us watch our Bravo in peace. Better yet, go do something else while we watch.
Tease me all you want, but my addiction to Real Housewives of New Jersey doesn’t mean I’m not still smarter than you. You know it, I know it.
No, watching twat schlock doesn’t necessarily mean you’re dumber, but it is a leading indicator.
Just say what you are feeling instead of being weird.
Use your words like a big boy.
Yes, chicks really dig men who emote profusely like a View hag.
Do the dishes.
We can take turns.
And chicks love men who do the dishes. Oh, wait…
Remember our friends’ names, at least the important ones.
No, that’s not Jessica, that’s AMANDA.
You know what you call a man who easily remembers your female friend’s name? A cheater.
Be a good cook.
There’s almost nothing hotter. Especially to a girl who can’t cook.
And there’s almost nothing less attractive than a woman who can’t be bothered to cook a home meal. Be thankful you’re not a fat chick, because that’s worse.
Love our pet, even if you secretly hate our pet.
Especially if it’s a cat.
If you’re considering whether you need to ask permission to do something (like hang out with an ex), ask permission.
She should be cool with it, but it shows that you’re considerate of her feelings.
You know what’s really sexy to women? Toadies.
Not just nutritional labels and Men’s Health while you’re on the treadmill.
Swap out Men’s Health for Vogue, and this is about as clear a case of projection as one will find on the vaginanet.
Don’t crash girls nights
No men allowed.
If you’re dating a man who wants to join your girls’ nights out, you’re doing it wrong. Or you’re dating a beta. Same diff.
So there you have it. If you’re a man who never wants to get near a vagina, follow this woman’s guide to pleasing her sex. You’ll be in the friendzone faster than you can unzip your fly and twiddle it to barely legal porn. A leetle rule of thumb you should keep in mind whenever you read nonsense like this article by Anna Breslaw: Women are thinking of that inconsiderate alpha male they really love and whose cock they can’t gobble fast enough when they write empty-headed crap like this. They’re reformulating the alpha’s refusal to commit as their frustration with his inability to suck up like a proper beta male. This sophistic legerdemain makes the pain of the alpha male’s commitment rejection easier to deflect. It’s no longer “his choice”; it’s her choice to live single and free and careening to spinsterhood because he doesn’t do the dishes.
But of course as anyone who’s got the slightest sexual experience with women knows, a woman in love will never let go a man who leaves his underwear on the floor. The alpha male lover is forgiven everything; the beta male wooer nothing.
