I've been posting on here for a while, but this is my first topic, so hi! I had a thought for an attitude that I think I've had most of my adult life, and I think it is positive, constructive, and in line with "RP thought", so I present it here for your thoughts and input. It's very simple:
Sex is not that good
So let me explain: TRP is all about bettering yourself, it's not MGOTW, but we encourage the idea that sex should be a collateral benefit of being a high quality man. In our culture I think there is a strong trope that encourages the idea that sex is the greatest thing in life, the highest physical, spiritual, emotional experience, etc. etc. I would like to present the idea that this is plugged-in, dare-i-say-it BP thinking. I think it's touched upon when people look down on PUAs as well.
I'm not going to pretend to be the greatest player, but I have had enough sex, and enough partners to realise that sex is sometimes incredible, but also quite often mundane. I remember thinking this quite a lot when I first became sexually active in my teens: is this it? This thing everyone constantly talks about, so much anticipation, but when you start actively doing it... It's... Alright... But not always... Maybe i'm not doing it right...? But then you have some amazing experiences... But then a few more that are just ok, or even bad, awkward, unsatisfying, etc... Or basically often not worth the trouble
I encourage you all not to get lost in male ego: don't respond with: "bro, you suck. I get 10s constantly and everytime it's incredible: the earth moves, thunder lightning, she cums 10 times, etc. etc". I'm sure there are plenty of guys on here who get more, hotter women than me, and congrats to those guys. But as we often acknowledge, the hotter the girl, the higher your necessary investment. Even if you are a higher value guy. But at the same time, I'm sure there are guys on here that I "do better" than. And to those I say: yeah, maybe I do better, but whatever. It all comes at a cost and often I still remind myself: at the end of the day sex isn't that good
Think about all the other things you do and enjoy: hanging with your friends, lifting, going for a run, enjoying a concert, traveling, whatever. Many of those things come at some cost, but we do them because we enjoy them. Would you enjoy going to a concert if doing so risked you being exploited or humiliated, being made to feel like less of a person? Of course not. But unfortunately we have to weather this storm to enjoy women. It sucks, but that's just how it is. Sex often comes at a high personal cost, and when you finally gain the prize you often have to ask yourself, was it really worth it? I'd like men here to be more public about the idea that sometimes it is, sometimes it isn't
Sex is not that good. Sex is not worth having you time and spirit sucked out of you. Remind yourself of this and I think this helps you to know when to say no. Remember that sex should be just one of the many things you enjoy in life. Also, consider that culture drugs us into believing that sex is the greatest human experience in order to make you a slave to women.
Yes, pursue sex. Yes, improve yourself. Yes, meet women. Yes, improve your game. But know when to walk away because sex is not that good
I hope I commuicated this is a positive and encouraging way. I'm not MGOTW, but I think TRP preaches that women should not be the centre of your life. Instead they should be wonderful decorations, but the core is what you build for yourself. As such, we should all remind ourselves that sex is not that good.
Apologies for any typos; phone post
Edit 1: Thanks for all the input, guys - lots of interesting and lively debate. I should probably clarify that I'm being somewhat deliberately provocative with my thread topic/motto. A clearer explanation, as contributed here, would be *like the pussy, take sex off the pedestal too". The original stands as a provocative crystallisation of what I'm getting at, though
Edit 2: no idea why I thought this was still my first topic - it's actually my 8th... Oops
