Who’s “Doing It?”

I’m reading newly arrived “Supreme Justice:A Novel of Suspence” by Philip Margolin.  At one point, Ginny Striker,  the fiance of the lead character Brad Miller, says “She would have given anything to be in her pajamas, snuggling on the couch with the man she loved while they watched a great old movie on the Turner Classics station.”

He had other things in mind since they hadn’ been together lately!

How great of a writer is Margolin?  Thursday May 20th, CBS had a story from  iVillage about a study of the sex-lives of 2000 women between the ages of 18 and 49.  “The most alarming finding was that 77 percent reported being ‘somewhat to extremely happy’ with their sex life, but 63 percent of them would rather sleep, watch a movie or read than have sex.”

Many want us to believe they are “doing it” three times a week.  Some even say every day!  I suspect there are a whole lot of unsatisfied men who are doing it once a month and feel lucky that they are not the poor SOBs doing it once a year.

  1. Mike, ponder this while you are driving up and down the steep hill in the yellow bus.
    I am sorry that there might be a whole lot of unsatisfied men, but perhaps the reason 63% of the women would rather sleep, watch a movie or read, lies with the men in the first place.
    Perhaps there are a whole lot of unsatisfied women, because the men will not take the time to satisfy.
    Therefore sleeping, watching a movie or reading becomes more satisfactory than sex.
    Just a thought.

  2. WO, are you saying that the majority of men are sexually retarded?

    I suspect it just takes too much time in our time starved and sleep deprived culture. If we lost electricity for a month; no TV, no computer, no phones, we might have a baby explosion.
