Okay, I've had more than I can stand. Brace yourself - major venting ahead!
Can somebody please tell me why every single day I have multiple messages in my email inbox - messages obviously targeted to men - from people or pharmaceutical companies that want to sell me products guaranteed to enhance my mojo?
This isn't the first time I've complained about this phenomenon. Check out What's in My Inbox. Obviously, there is a huge market for these products - thus the mass emails to the Junk boxes of middle-aged women. Obviously, then, there are a lot of men in the world who feel, um, shall we say, a little less than adequate. Who feel like they've lost their Voom! A lot of men, perhaps, who find that their lady loves are not as enraptured with them as in days gone by. A lot of men who would reallyreallyreally like to have a magic pill or potion that could transform them into super hotties.
Okay, I've got that.
But now, let me tell you what I think would be really neat to see in my Inbox:
From: Dr. Libido
Subject: How to talk to and really listen to your wife
From: Dr. Phallon
Subject: Praying with your woman - the secret to great sex
From: High Performance Pharmaceuticals
Subject: God designed marriage and intimacy - We have His study notes!
From: Erica Golightly
Subject: Why work so hard for the real deal when I've got a whole box of shrink-wrapped Twinkies sitting right here on the shelf?! You don't really want great sex - You want a cheap imitation. Message me!
Okay, I'm just saying, if there really are a plethora of men out there in the world who are less-than-satisfied with the state of their love lives, I think it might be more helpful for them to actually begin the work of building intimate relationships with their wives than for them to be clicking on links to Cheap Pills! and Local Hotties! I'm pretty sure they'd get better results - both in the bedroom and out of it.
I realize I don't have many male readers, but, if you are a man and you don't mind strong language,check out Men and Marriage over at Mars Hill Church. Good stuff - but, ouch! I'm working up my courage to listen to Marriage and Women later today. Pray for me.
As for all my lady readers, here's a question for you: If you were a company sending a mass email to all the sexually frustrated men in the world, what would be in the subject line?
