Sex and Money…What else is there?


Time to offend some people…Hooray!

What else is there besides sex and money? Let’s be clear about this, OK? Try me! I don’t think you can get to the core essence of a man and not relate it to sex and money. I’ll have a brief dialogue with myself, but feelĀ  free to comment.

1. Family. Taking care of our family is an extremely strong drive. For most men, ‘taking care’ of them is an emotional AND a financial obligation. Money makes for a happy life and a happy wife. Many men avoid divorce to be around for their kids…hmm…avoid divorce, why are they considering that? Not enough sex? (With the exception of adoption, you can’t have those darling kids without sex!)

2. God. Let’s see, King Solomon was the wealthiest man in the world. No wonder he had 700 wives and 300 concubines is there a larger example of sex and money? Even Hugh Hefner can’t match this guy. Sex and sexuality is mentioned all over the bible.

3. Community service. Why do people TRULY volunteer? It makes us feel good, special and gives us a sense of giving back. Many people donate because it is a great tax deduction (money). What about non-financial volunteerism. What does that do for your ego? It empowers you. What do you want to do when you feel powerful…HAVE SEX!

Essentially, human beings are in a constant struggle to avoid pain and seek pleasure. When we increase our health, our wealth and our relationships we feel better and life is good. The epitome of a fulfilling life is one rich in relationships and leaving the world a better place than when we found it.

Of course there is more to life than sex and money. As men, however, we have core needs to increase both. Instead of running away from those needs or trying to sugar coat them with Oprah-fied niceties, isn’t it more authentic to embrace our masculinity? Isn’t it just easier to say our bodies were built to kill Mastodon’s, bring them back to our caves and make more people?

Women are certainly designed for sex. Why else would they be so curvy, smooth, and sexy looking? A student of science or anthropology can easily agree that the propagation of the species is mission #1. Without that, no amount of volunteerism, enlightenment or family vacations are relevant.

You can’t really enjoy life, let alone HAVE a life, if we don’t take care of the most important objective of all mankind; the continuation of the species.

Sex is the most important thing to have.

So there.
