Shopping vs. Sex
I’m always hearing these ridiculous news items claiming that women prefer just about everything out there over sex. Chocolate, the internet…the list goes on! I don’t believe them for a second, but these stories just keep rearing their obnoxious heads.
Most recently, the radio news reported more than half of all women would rather shop than have sex. Really? I have trouble buying that one, if you’ll pardon the pun. I mean, who are these women and what kind of dolts are they sleeping with?
Perhaps it’s the stereotypical red-blooded dyke in me, but I must admit that I absolutely hate shopping. Except for groceries. What can I say? I love to eat! But for clothes and shoes and handbags and all that overpriced junk? Please! I’d rather be chained to the headboard for five days straight with my Sweet tracing her nails across my back. Keep me away from those tiresome malls.
I’m sure everybody out there isn’t so extreme in their likes and dislikes, but really? Shopping over sex? Have we learned our lesson of not coveting thy neighbour’s wife so well that we’ve moved on to coveting thy neighbour’s cell phone and flat-screen TV instead?
Most people have far more stuff than their homes can handle (hence, the self-storage industry) and far more belongings that they can reasonably afford (hence, massive credit card debt). Do we really—really?—need to spend every moment of our valuable gettin’ it on time mall-hopping?
Following the holiday season, I’m sure we’re all looking to conserve our hard-earned cash. I have an idea. For those alleged fifty percent of us who would rather shop than knock boots, why not take a different approach? Save your money; have sex instead!
