The male libido
Perhaps that’s the answer -- the idea that men are “slaves to their libidos,” while assuming women simply put up with it. This way of thinking, now egregiously tired and out-of-date, limits both men and women in their sexual conquests. It’s the kind of thinking that labels women as “sluts” when they sleep around while shrugging and saying “boys will be boys” when men do the same.
“Sure, the phallus is much easier to stimulate than lady parts,” Moylan noted. “It being completely on the outside of the body and all, but it doesn’t mean boys can’t get as much from a sex device as ladies can… ladies have a far more than guys ever do [and] if there is one area in the world where women have more choice and opportunity than guys do, then it is in the sex toy aisle.
