"Gay men better in the sack than women" say gay marriage opponents
I found this article on beliefnet on the subject of gay-marriage and how it can potentially be detrimental to society. Regardless of what I think about the conclusions drawn by the author, I thought that I would post the article here because I found it to be, if nothing else singular in it's approach to the subject and worthy of note simply for the author's inventiveness.
The thrust of the article is that in a society that lacks heteronormativity most people who would otherwise not engage in homosexual activity because they are not naturally inclined will do so recreationally. It's a claim of obviously uncertain merit to say the least but I'm willing to grant as much.
Where the article lost me was when the author says that in such a society, heterosexual women will ultimately lose out. This on account of the fact that no matter how good your wife, girlfriend or whatever thinks she is in bed, she is actually far out of her league when attempting to compete with the mind-bogglingly awesome hard-core gay sex that slutty, smooth-skinned young men have been doling out in generous quantities since forever( I'm paraphrasing of course).
I won't bore you further with my thoughts on the subject, but I would like to hear what other people think about this, especially women.
Choice excerpt below:
The social history behind this piece is clear: once they've experienced sex with other men, Catullus tells us, men are unsatisfied with what their new wives provide them. Notice that the poet is unconcerned about the husband's dallying with other women -- it's the other men around that threaten the marital union.
If Catullus addressed the bridegroom on the eve of his wedding, the satirist Martial (Book 11, Epigram 43) depicts the reality of married life itself. As satire, the section is too bawdy to be reprinted here, but the sanitized version goes like this: A woman chastises her husband for continuing to dally with male acquaintances. He counters that many other married men are doing it as well. Desperate, she offers to service him in the same way that his male suitor does. He rebuffs, concluding, that she just can't satisfy him the way his suitor can.
