The Rational Male

I know I’m not the smartest guy in the room, but I found this book hard to follow. It’s poorly written and poorly organized. However, this is a tremendously interesting read, but not for why you may think.

I’ve had a unique experience while reading this in that I’ve signed up for some male forums and met some of the guys in real life. It’s interesting to compare their online personalities with who they are in real life.

Rollin became famous for his posts in male-centric forums. But Rollo is a beta. I keep getting this feeling that Rollo is a beta who writes well and started early enough to get a following. Not to mention his wife divorced him.

At one point he talks about how women lose their sex drive when in relationships. That they start to use sex as a reward. That’s only true if you’re a beta male or bad at sex. In nearly all the relationships I’ve been in, the woman’s sex drive is higher than mine. She never denies me sex when I want it. And I’m no super-top-dog-alpha male. But, assuming she did, then I could deny intimacy in the form of cuddling and general flirting which I love to do. In fact, for me, cuddling is better than sex. Even my girlfriends who didn’t like cuddling before they met me, do like it with me.

If your woman is denying you, the man, sex there are serious problems with you, the man.

He talks about not getting sex for a week in an LTR being the end of the world. I think he’s misremembering his past. Do you know how many sexless weeks I’ve had in my life?
