In my experience, men, who are drawn to women's erotic fiction are men who are least likely to have had any erotic adventures, which for you is unfortunate, and although not vicarious sexuality, more like wishful thinking! Good luck to you I hope your sex life improves!
Just by you taking the time to post here, tells me that is not true, you know you read FSOG and that's why you are commenting here, I think you are massively full of it! Just because a women wants to read erotica does not mean she has no sex life, your original comment is pure ignorance, it is very obvious you know nothing about women nor what makes them tick!
I found your argument interesting and thought "Why not ask them to read this other book"? It explores a similar theme as FSOG and clearly shows both parties have valid points. However, it's not a clear cut right or wrong here and both parties will see that it's all a matter of opinion.
Thanks for the clarification, but I'm not sure what points you believe are valid. I made an assertion that was responded to by insults and off-base assumptions. I will say that I think the sort of woman who enjoys The Story of O is more likely to be a doer than one who has read FSOG. That's my own experience. In my original comment I wasn't demeaning women who are fantasists rather than participants. You don't need to have rafted the Mississippi to enjoy Huck Finn. FSOG doesn't seem to embolden readers, it seems to satisfy them. That's much of what porn does for both sexes, for better or worse. I haven't read FSOG, but when I was young I read Victorian erotica, which is well-written and imaginative. BTW, I'm not the one who gave your comment a negative vote.
