    Thought-provoking podcast. If recent surveys are to be believed, fewer and fewer people (especially young people) are having sex. What is happening, I think, is that the majority of women are having sex only with the top 20% or 10% of men. Women are sleeping around more, but only with a narrow (elite) segment of the male population. The triumph of hypergamy and elimination of traditional restraints on female sexuality are the key contributors to the spread of STDs. One of the things that has surprised me, as a bachelor who has dated a lot, is the sexual aggressiveness of modern American women, young and old. Also, the cheating that women indulge in. It’s eye-opening.

  2. In the picture, are those men or just really ugly women?

    1. It’s Weimerica, probably both.

    The sexual revolution came from the people of fashion:

    “In every civilized society, in every society where the distinction of ranks has once been completely established, there have always been two different schemes or systems of morality current at the same time, of which the one may be called the strict or austere; the other the liberal, or if you will, the loose system. The former is generally admired and revered by the common people; the latter is commonly more esteemed and adopted by what are called people of fashion. In the liberal or loose system, luxury, wanton and even disorderly mirth, the pursuit of pleasure to some degree of intemperance, the breach of chastity, at least in one of the two sexes, etc., are generally treated with a good deal of indulgence (provided they are not accompanied with gross indecency and do not lead to falsehood or injustice). They are easily either excused or pardoned altogether. In the austere system, on the contrary, those excesses are regarded with the utmost abhorrence and detestation. The vices of levity are always ruinous to the common people, and a single week’s thoughtlessness and dissipation is often sufficient to undo a poor workman for ever, and to drive him through despair upon committing the most enormous crimes. “

    Adam Smith.

    If Europeans had been engaged in this kind of behaviour back in the Middle Ages, European civilization would have died in the craddle.

    I agree with Laguna Beach Fogey: there is a pareto principle effect going on right now where there’s a small group of men who are having the most amount of sex and a large group of men who are having about as much or less sex than previous generations. While more sexually desirable men are on Tinder, the less sexually desirable men are on Xbox Live. Conversely, undesirable women aren’t taking themselves out of the dating pool like the undesirable men.

    The reason is touched on in this episode: awkward men are now considered creeps and are getting filtered out, as there is a generation being raised by single mothers or effeminate fathers who aren’t going to be encouraging these guys to get good with girls in their teenage years. So there’s an increase of men who are dropping out or at least are spending far less time trying to get women. That’s where video games, binge watching TV, porn, and comic book movies come in: the men with low status are retreating to fantasy worlds. With limited career potential and now limited relationship potential, dropping out and focusing on the storylines in comic books becomes a cheap, viable option.

      The unexpected, undesirable and dysfunctional outcome of the sexual revolution was portrayed by Houllebecq in Whatever (original title: Extension du domaine de la lutte), and also in The Elementary Particles.

  5. These podcasts are great, you have a good voice for radio and the content is consistently interesting.

    That Vanity Fair article about Tinder you mentioned was an interesting peek into the ugly side of the hookup scene. It was refreshingly open about a lot of unspeakable truths:

    – Except for a small number of men who are making out like sultans, pretty much everyone hates our modern hookup culture. People keep participating in it though because they’re addicted to the easy validation and don’t see any alternatives

    – Women don’t get much pleasure from hookups. They rarely get off and usually feel dirty and used afterwards. They keep it up because it’s the social norm and they like the short-term rush of feeling wanted and pursued. Deep down they strongly prefer committed relationships (aside from a tiny mentally-ill fringe).

    – It all seemed kind of dorky and awkward, TBH, even among people who are obviously getting laid a lot. Millennials are hopelessly addicted to their phones and prefer to use apps to pick their hookups instead of hitting on each other face-to-face. Even more than past generations they lean on getting shitfaced to build up the courage to interact. Picture a club or bar with every single person with their face jammed in a phone instead of ogling chicks or talking to friends. Depressing.

    – In general people seemed lost, adrift, and nihilistic, rather than liberated or adventurous. It all adds up to a strong argument for patriarchy, which, never forget, had the primary purpose of protecting women from predatory men.

    1. “It all adds up to a strong argument for patriarchy, which, never forget, had the primary purpose of protecting women from predatory men.”

      Agreed, although I would suggest that before something like the restoration of patriarchy can be realized, women are going to have to be made to suffer much more than they are now. Only when they can’t take it anymore will it be the time be ripe to bring back patriarchy.

      I agree. However hookup culture breeds distrust between men and women and it also prolongs marriage. Since married women tend to be more conservative than single women, there is an active interest to keep women from marrying. These women at age 34 might be unhappy from hooking up for the past 15 years of their life, working a dead end job (so much for being Carrie Bradshaw), and have cats they’ve rescued from a shelter as furry surrogate kids but hey, they’re gonna vote for the Democrats in the next election and that’s all that counts.

  6. Thanks for this. What you’ve talked about in the podcast is what has been going through my mind for several months, if not the past couple of years.

    “Keep calm, and fuck on” is a great slogan for the Cathedral’s Reichian disciples.
