Guys watch porn and girls don’t. December 4, 2006 12:33 pm

Yesterday Cathy and I were discussing how it may have been uncomfortable for a 16 year old boy to watch a movie with sexual and drug related themes with his parents. We started talking about how Tommy requires a more direct approach with such things than other teenagers. Tommy does not get the benefit of friends gathering around and sneaking a watch of a dirty movie or one that your parents would disapprove. I know that I innocently got together with a bunch of friends in high school only to discover they had arranged to watch Caligula.

This version contained many scenes with extremely taboo, sexually, and violently explicit content, including … (see second bullet under "Multiple Versions" for the full description) [Source]

In the course of a couple of hours, my knowledge grew exponentially! (the curious can find pictures buried here) These are certain rites of passage that we assume everyone experiences but some people just miss out due to helicopter parenting or special needs. I am by no means suggesting that I sit down and watch porn with my son. I am suggesting that some people have gaps in what otherwise is common knowledge because that knowledge (slang, taboo subjects, etc) is taught through peer relations, relationships that simply do not exist in certain circumstances. I digress.

My real point is that from this discussion Cathy mentioned that "girls don’t watch porn." And added jokingly, "because they don’t have to!" She is right though. Girls could have the real thing anytime they want but hold back. Guys want it all the time but cannot get it. Funny how some things never change.

…and thus the fundamental unfairness of the universe is exposed. All because we had the audacity to wait and eat the apple second…*sigh*
