If you’ve seen the movie There’s Something About Mary, you’re probably familiar with the conversation between Ben Stiller and Chris Elliott about “The Loaded Gun Theory.”
Essentially, the premise is that when you go out on a date with a woman, it’s probably a good idea to jerk off instead of showing up at her door with only one thing on your mind.
Well, when this particular topic came up in conversation recently (excuse the inadvertent pun), I decided to do some research.
Turns out, assuming you write your Google search in a way that doesn’t result in a barrage of “adult” sites, you’ll quickly find that almost everyone who has thought about the topic of the day has come to the same conclusion: it is better to masturbate before going on a hot date.
The reasons cited are generally two:
1) Take the “pressure” off
2) If something physical happened on the date, you are less likely to experience premature ejaculation.
Of course, conventional wisdom would point out that this is all sound logic. But not so fast.
The problem with “conventional wisdom,” as Freakonomics author Steven Levitt so eloquently pointed out, is that it is generally based on the EASIER conclusion to draw rather than what is perhaps the RIGHT one.
And the more I consider the “Loaded Gun Theory,” the more I begin to believe that there is more to think about than what is on the surface.
In fact, I would like to challenge you to consider whether it is actually better to keep it for a few days before a particularly long-awaited meeting with a woman. This is why.
First of all, I have a suspicion that when we as boys are physically primed for sexual arousal, we may radiate a more sexual (read: “masculine”) presence physiologically.
Forget the “pheromone spray,” gentlemen. My intuition is that when you are completely “in the mood”, women can somehow feel that … and the woman in them “wakes up” physiologically.
Like I said, I couldn’t really find anything to support this hypothesis on Google, but consider some of the rumors surrounding MOTORCYCLES (Members of the opposite sex) based on their various possible states of sexual readiness, hormone levels, etc.
In fact, women tend to spend more time thinking about these kinds of things, and some of the ideas that have gained traction over the years include how women tend to have a certain “glow” about themselves when they are pregnant, and how when a woman is at her MOST FERTILE point of her monthly cycle, she is ALSO at her sexual peak … even, perhaps, as I unconsciously recognized my men around her.
So here it is: considering that we are all human beings here, why would a similar but gender-specific set of premises not hold true for us as men?
Also, I think that if you are more sexually tuned in the moment, the more likely you are to feel a lot more excitement in your soul when you engage an attractive woman on a date. And that kind of energy can lead to serious fireworks (the keyword is “lead,” as always).
The analogy of what happens when you go shopping when you are hungry may not be far from here. If you just visited an “all you can eat” buffet, you are more likely to put off going to the grocery store until tomorrow.
But if you missed lunch and are starving, you probably can’t wait to go shopping.
In fact, I put forward the ideas I’ve just described by various women in the last few days, and they ALL agreed with me … ASSUMING the guy was mature enough to stay in control.
It goes like this: Women really LOVE it when a man radiates primal sexuality on a date.
What they DON’T love is when kids act like Neanderthals. They don’t like to feel pressured and / or “used.”
So I have a feeling that “personal control” may be the deciding factor here.
Let’s be honest; If you’re hungry when you get to the grocery store, you can spend twice as much money on things that you will probably never be able to eat before it spoils. But ONLY if you lack discipline.
And yes, if you are about to punch a hole in your mattress by the time you meet a woman, you may have “tunnel vision” and seem overly focused on sex or even DESPERATE when with her. .
But again … that will ONLY be true if you lack discipline.
What we have here gentlemen could actually be a very real LITHMUS TEST by which we can measure whether or not we have DOMAIN over our own sexuality or not.
That’s heavy work, right?
If you can’t stand the heat then yeah … you probably better jerk off before a date.
But that would be your loss.
Because considering that women are actually UP TO THE CORE by being in the presence of a man who is sexually charged and self-disciplined at the same time, if you CAN maintain your makeup when you’re in that state, you may well have an advantage. POWERFUL WILD over most others. guys out there.
And I’m not going to rule out that this may be another piece of the puzzle as to why older men may attract younger women who think that men their own age are “so immature.”
As for the premature ejaculation part of the argument, by the way, even that may be less of a problem than you think.
Contrary to popular belief (there is that “conventional wisdom” again), a woman can actually be ADAPTABLE if her first time together takes off quickly. I can guarantee that it beats the opposite scenario.
Also, if she’s that sexy, don’t you think you’d have a “second round” somewhere?
What you think? Can you try everything we’re talking about here without freaking out? Can you believe that a woman can respond to you in a completely new and powerful way?
At the very least, I can assure you that if you CAN handle all of this and apply it, you will be operating at a level that most guys can’t touch. And you will probably enjoy your dates much more, as you become the newly crowned world champion in increasing sexual tension.
After all, what guy does NOT want to get all the perks available when it comes to separating himself from the “herd” and realizing the ability to attract the highest quality women on Earth?
