No Sex Tonight - Best Of Craigslist

I just wanted to share something that gave me a good laugh this morning. It was posted in the "best of craigslist" section of craigslist. I thought somebody else here may find it funny, too. I have found it is easier to cope with a sexless marriage if I learn to laugh more about my situation. Here's the post....

"I never quite figured out why the sexual urge of men and women differ so much. And I never have figured out the whole Venus and Mars thing. I have never figured out why men think with their head and women with their heart.

FOR EXAMPLE: One evening last week, my girlfriend and I were getting into bed.

Well, the passion starts to heat up, and she eventually says "I don't feel like it, I just want you to hold me."

I said "WHAT??!! What was that?!"

So she says the words that every boyfriend on the planet dreads to hear... "You're just not in touch with my emotional needs as a woman enough for me to satisfy your physical needs as a man." She responded to my puzzled look by saying, "Can't you just love me for who I am and not what I do for you in the bedroom?"

Realizing that nothing was going to happen that night, I went to sleep.

The very next day I opted to take the day off of work to spend time with her. We went out to a nice lunch and then went shopping at a big, big unnamed department store. I walked around with her while she tried on several different very expensive outfits. She couldn't decide which one to take so I told her we'd just buy them all. She wanted new shoes to compliment her new clothes, so I said lets get a pair for each outfit. We went onto the jewelry department where she picked out a pair of diamond earrings. Let me tell you...she was so excited. She must have thought I was one wave short of a shipwreck. I started to think she was testing me because she asked for a tennis bracelet when she doesn't even know how to play tennis. I think I threw her for a loop when I said, "That's fine, honey." She was almost nearing sexual satisfaction from all of the excitement. Smiling with excited anticipation she finally said, "I think this is all dear, let's go to the cashier."

I could hardly contain myself when I blurted out, "No honey, I don't feel like it."

Her face just went completely blank as her jaw dropped with a baffled WHAT?"

I then said "honey! I just want you to HOLD this stuff for a while. You're just not in touch with my financial needs as a man enough for me to satisfy your shopping needs as a woman." And just when she had this look like she was going to kill me, I added, "Why can't you just love me for who I am and not for the things I buy you?"

Apparently I'm not having sex tonight either. "

rotflmao. thanks for that one

lol I love it!

And...who wins?

Doesn't matter, neither one is getting lucky any time soon.

Not a matter of 'winning' but making a point and in that 'battle' he won... big. I'm still laughing.

You might win a few battles, but you'll lose in the end.

Actually I didn't... she divorced me. ... and my life has been much less stressful!

That's hilarious. And I feel for every man who has to deal with that. I'm the one with a savings account and the only one interested in intimacy. In some ways I think it's even more humiliating to be a woman in this situation. At least society expects men to be in this position. But... I laughed at this. I find humor VERY healing as well. :-)


Even as a woman I find this absolutely hilarious. Good job!

Amazingly Amazing....LOL!!!!!!!!!!! Amazing! I mean truly amazing. Love It!

that is the best thing i have ever read, yo are a very brave man for doing that but i understand why you done it its complete female double standards, you are a braver man than me.

This is a classic!

Priceless! That has got to be filed away for future use!



awesome, thank you for sharing this post.

Love it! So true!

Too funny!

sex is overrated...

If you really feel that way, this isn't the place for you.
