Poem – Body Wonderland


I posted the poem below on my Poems and Short Story blog but I thought I would reblog it here to talk about a few things.

1. For men, giving their bodies in sex or sexual related activities does not always have the same deep meaning as it does to women.

2. For women, if we haven’t given ourselves to someone who is the right guy, in the right relationship, for the right reasons, then we feel shame and can struggle with guilt.

3. Christianity emphasizes the idea of virginity and ‘purity’ for women but not at all for men. There are not many men who feel the need to become a born-again virgin because their sexual history is praised but for women it is the opposite. We have to constantly atone for our sexual behaviors.

4. As women, we do have to be mindful of our sexual behavior because it affects our self-image and self-esteem due to society’s pressure and views of women and sex. A guy can be a stud with many women but a woman is a slut with less than a handful of partners.

5. Women are taught that sex should always be coupled with marriage or a long term relationship and love. Men are told that sex is an important part of their masculinity and a needed commodity so, they should strive for it from women whether there is an emotional connection or not.

6. The messages about men and women’s bodies and sex are the polar opposite. While for men, the act is something to be proud of because it gives experience, but for women, its shameful because we are too free and we are not showing respect for ourselves.

7. The Bible is a Christian’s playbook and there is no disputing that it frowns upon sex before marriage. If we all followed that guideline, then everyone’s first sexual experience would be after the “I do” and then you figure out the mechanics from there.

8. However, that is not always the case for the majority. For women, the rules will always be more strict, whether we like it or not, we have internalized those rules and we still have to be mindful because sex for us is tightly linked to our emotions.

My body is a wonderland
not given to any man freely
It wasn’t made for high speed traffic
periodic or random visits
nor a ride at Disneyland
designed for your selfish pleasure

It was meant to be handled delicately
like the rarest treasure discovered
Peel away the layers
it houses the heart of its existence
more priceless than any metal

Pardon my foolish oversight
in letting down my boundaries
It’s all back in good order
If you want full exclusive access
then prove you can pay the price in full
with all that God intended

Keep Him In Line


You have to keep men on a short leash in order to get them to do what you want. The best way to hold on to a man is to keep his belly full and keep him guessing.  Sex is a powerful weapon, use it because a man will do anything for it. When women make such statements, other women … Continue reading Keep Him In Line

The Unicorn Man


Here is my firm stance when it comes to men -They are not stupid (even though you do have a few) -They are not helpless babies with all thumbs -They are not stupid (I had to repeat this one for the delusional women) If you read enough of my blogs on this topic, then you know … Continue reading The Unicorn Man

Question for the Unedited Readers


If a man (Christian or secular) constantly looks at you with lustful eyes (or what you perceive to be lustful), do you think there is room in his mind to think of you with respect and appreciation? Think King David and Bathsheba or even your own experiences. I would love to hear your responses in the comment section or send me … Continue reading Question for the Unedited Readers

Let Men Have Their Masculinity


I was just watching a video in which a good looking gentleman made his commentary on women being required to pay rent 50/50. To paraphrase, he states that it is a man's responsibility to take care of his woman no matter how much she earns because some traditions are still good. In the pursuit of gender equality, … Continue reading Let Men Have Their Masculinity

Some Men Still Got It


A conversation with a new friend turned to my singleness and what I am looking for in a man. She gave a scenario, to deduce if I was being difficult and therefore the reason for my singledom, if you were in a grocery store and a nice guy approached you what would you say? My … Continue reading Some Men Still Got It

What Does It Mean To Be A Real Man?


As a woman, my view of the important characteristics of a man is related to what works best with my personality. However, what makes a real man, from a woman's perspective, can differ significantly from how certain men would answer that question. So, here are my views and tidbits I have picked up from some men. What … Continue reading What Does It Mean To Be A Real Man?

Men Need Love (too)


The concept that men are emotionally constructed so differently in which they do not experience the same feelings as women is a destructive but pervasive thought which is passed from one woman to the next. I cannot place any greater emphasis on the importance of communication. Within the last week, I became personally aware of how much … Continue reading Men Need Love (too)
