Please note - this post is only about SMV. RMV will be covered in another post
What is SMV
SMV stands for sexual market value. There are three components to this phrase, each expressing a different premise. The combination of these three concepts is SMV.
Sexual - what matters here is sexual in nature. Other forms of value (such as RMV) may or may not affect your SMV.
Market - sex is a transaction of sorts between a man and a woman. Of course, it's most enjoyable when the transaction element is tucked away and remains unseen, but it's a transaction nonetheless. Just like the foundation of your home is best when it's unseen, but the whole house relies on it, so too is the transaction element of sex. It works best when other elements such as love, desire and passion are what's visible. However, both men and women will become disinterested from sex if it's a one way street where their needs are not being met. This is because sex is a transaction of sorts. A market is a place where many transactions occur. (This idea really requires its own post)
Value - the topic of value has already been covered in this post
The sum total of these three concepts is - you have sexual value to the opposite sex, value which can increase or decrease. Even people who are in lifelong committed relationships have eyes and can see other people. Therefore, even though they're "off the market", sexual value is still valuable and can seriously impact the health of the relationship for good and otherwise.
What is sexually valuable
What makes something sexually valuable is determined solely by what adds sexual value to the opposite sex, causing sexual arousal in members of the opposite sex. If it causes sexual arousal for more people, it has higher sexual value. If it causes a stronger sexual arousal, it has higher sexual value. It makes no difference whatsoever whether you think it's sexy or not, all that matters is whether the opposite sex finds it sexy.
Female example - there are many women who say - he should desire me for me, as I am. At any size, with any length of hair, with any hair color, with any type of clothing etc. While it sounds idealistic to be desired for the inner you, the physical eyes can't see the inner you and the physical penis goes limp from such displays of the outer you.
Male example - there are many men who say - I should be able to be soft, emotional and indecisive and I should be sexually desired anyway. While this is idealistic thinking (and has certain manifestations that are good for marriage!), such traits will cause the physical vagina to dry up like the Sahara Desert.
It doesn't matter what you think is sexually attractive in you, it doesn't even matter if this is good, ideal or moral (TRP being amoral will be covered in another post). All that matters in the world of SMV is - does it have value in the sexual market place? Does this sell and who wants to buy?
Sexual market fluctuations
Like any market, value goes up and down based on many factors. Your dollar today isn't worth the same as it was yesterday and it won't remain the same tomorrow. Sometimes it rises, other times it falls. Just like with any product produced by any company - success depends on the value you bring to the table. Sexual success is no different.
If you generally look good, feel good and smell good, you'll have higher SMV. If one day you're dressed frumpy or you're having a bad hair day, your SMV will be lower that day. If your skin becomes rough, your SMV will be lower, if you apply cream and soften it again, it'll rise up again. After you shower, your SMV will be higher than before the shower. Just like the market fluctuations, your SMV fluctuates as well. The key is that it remain within the realm of normal fluctuation and not enter the realm of volatility.
When your SMV fluctuates too much it becomes a risky investment. For example - a woman who is a 6 can still attract quite a few men. If she applies a bit of makeup and dresses in the right clothing etc and elevates herself just a bit to a 6 and a half, the man's sexual attraction to her will rise accordingly. It's a win win. However, if she goes through one of those 7 hour long makeup and dress makeovers to the point where she's a different person - sure, she'll get more male attention in the moment, but the moment the clothing and makeup come off, that extra attention will quickly turn to disgust. She may have been able to score the guy if she presented herself genuinely, but the volatility caused by such big highs and lows will cause the value to drop through the floor. (Same is true with any other example for men or women. Imagine a guy who smells really good but that scent is really masking a strong body odor. Your attraction will turn to disgust when the good scent wears off).
SMV is a market filled with fluctuating value. Normal fluctuation is to be expected, drastic fluctuation turns you into a volatile investment that's just too risky to buy. All that matters is what's valuable to the customer. It's wise to give your partner ample reason to buy into your brand every single day!
