Here is another random post: my favorite drink is root beer.

Coke or Dr. Pepper

Preferably with real sugar.

Although I love RC Cola from time to time.

Royal Crown Cola is one of the worst things that I have ever put in my mouth.

Only their mini-corn dogs are good. The fact that they grill the bun which tastes awful, I will never eat there.

I want to know why men think its a biological impulse to commit adultery.

Because it is. By our very nature we are not monogomous. Men were biologically designed to have several female partners. Hence why we can orgasm like every ten minutes whereas it takes nine months for one woman to have a child.
This is BS.

Explain why. If men were meant to be monogomous then how come we can orgasm so fast whereas it takes a woman nine months to have a child? The reason is because we were designed to impregnate several women. If men were meant to be monogomous then wouldn't you think that we would only be able to orgasm every nine months to be on the same pace as our wife?

Let me put it this way, and see if it helps you understand why everyone is all "Whaaa?":

You're equating apples and oranges... in this case: orgasms and gestation. They are two separate things entirely. And really, your argument works against you. Women can potentially orgasm in more rapid succession than men, in that females have a shorter refractory period. To put it bluntly: once a man orgasms, his body needs time to recover before arousal is possible again (adolescence notwithstanding  Wink ). On the other hand, once a woman orgasms, her body is still in a state of arousal.

It would be better for your argument against monogamy being biological if you took orgasms out of the equation entirely, and instead focused on what you hinted at earlier: the woman gestates a baby, and for 9 months at that, while the man remains physically unencumbered despite fathering a child or copious amounts of children. Even if a woman had multiple partners her potential yield of children remains relatively set. A man, however, could certainly increase his yield of children if he increased his partners.

I hope I'm clear as mud, because I can't bring myself to type orgasm one more time. Fin.

To this, I would add that women can also if they so choose have sex and orgasm during pregnancy.

I want to make your second sentence my signature. So funny.

This weather is terrible. Summer sucks. We had someone come out and look at our AC today and it was just super depressing. I was actually planning on recounting the whole experience as I started typing this but I don't have the willpower and in this heat who cares anyway? My thermostat's temperature gauge reads: "Pit of hell". I'm pretty sure my house is where bad people go when they die.

This is BS.

Explain why. If men were meant to be monogomous then how come we can orgasm so fast whereas it takes a woman nine months to have a child? The reason is because we were designed to impregnate several women. If men were meant to be monogomous then wouldn't you think that we would only be able to orgasm every nine months to be on the same pace as our wife?

Let me put it this way, and see if it helps you understand why everyone is all "Whaaa?":

You're equating apples and oranges... in this case: orgasms and gestation. They are two separate things entirely. And really, your argument works against you. Women can potentially orgasm in more rapid succession than men, in that females have a shorter refractory period. To put it bluntly: once a man orgasms, his body needs time to recover before arousal is possible again (adolescence notwithstanding  Wink ). On the other hand, once a woman orgasms, her body is still in a state of arousal.

It would be better for your argument against monogamy being biological if you took orgasms out of the equation entirely, and instead focused on what you hinted at earlier: the woman gestates a baby, and for 9 months at that, while the man remains physically unencumbered despite fathering a child or copious amounts of children. Even if a woman had multiple partners her potential yield of children remains relatively set. A man, however, could certainly increase his yield of children if he increased his partners.

I hope I'm clear as mud, because I can't bring myself to type orgasm one more time. Fin.

So does this mean I could have multiple partners?   laugh

Would you perhaps think it disadvantageous for the stronger male of a monogamous species set in a more primitive tribal construct to be as equally immobile as its pregnant mate? Or is the ability for the male counterpart to continue to provide and defend the familial unit a more desirable arrangement?

The answer may prove troubling to your porn addiction.

Depends on who they are. Often you don't have to. You can just be away from them.

I want to know why men think its a biological impulse to commit adultery.

Because it is. By our very nature we are not monogomous. Men were biologically designed to have several female partners. Hence why we can orgasm like every ten minutes whereas it takes nine months for one woman to have a child.
This is BS.

Explain why. If men were meant to be monogomous then how come we can orgasm so fast whereas it takes a woman nine months to have a child? The reason is because we were designed to impregnate several women.

Keep in mind that evolution and religion are two separate things.  As a homo sapiens having multiple partners is not only permissible, but advantageous, specifically if you only provide for the most superior of the little bundles of genes.

As a Christian no, you cannot.

I stole a Calvin and Hobbes book from a classmate. Only time I stole anything when I was young. I still regret it.

And neither are the members of As I Lay Dying. Smiley

Speaking of them, I wonder if Tim Lambesis is Greek Orthodox (he's part Greek).
