As I read through I couldn't help at times be sensitive with the author's general conclusions towards women who have chosen not to marry or have children.
The author's use of analogies were helpful in driving the key points of the book and found myself laughing at many of them. I do however take exception to his assertion that women in their 40's are like a penny vs a young woman in her 20's being a $100 bill. I know my worth is far more than a penny.
This is a must read for anyone looking to navigate the treacherous dating market!
Overall, an interesting and valuable book, but just a bit over repetitive.
Yes, I recommend this book. It's worth every penny of its price.
A Pornographer’s Perspective on Sex, Love and Dating. By Dave Pounder.
As I read this book on my iPad, someone asked me what I was reading. ( a woman) and I told her. Instantly she wrinkled her nose and said, “Why are you reading that? Wait, I know why.” A huge spark of debate could have ensued as at first I felt like I had to defend myself for reading something that was NOT, pornographic… This was one of those instances where the book was being judged by its title. Now I admit I was skeptical at first, but the truth is I was pleasantly surprised. I know, you’re thinking, “You man” of course you’re pleasantly surprised. But seriously, the author does an amazing job, balancing the subject of what men and women both want out of sex, and what drives them towards the goal. It’s an argument as old as time. A romance writer once said to me. “Women give sex to get love while men give love to get sex.” That statement while bold is true.
The author, a former actor in the adult film industry, has a true insight to how both genders approach sex. An interesting example is: Women in the adult film industry didn’t care what the male actors looked like, their age, if they were built or fat…so long as they got their required pay rate. To them…it was a job.
Where the men, would take a pay cut or half their rate to do a scene with a woman who was exceptionally attractive. This was no surprise to me because guys are easily visually stimulated.
The book goes on to go into great detail the mental arguments, statistics, and pros and cons of why sex is such a hang up for most Americans.
While there are many generalizations in the book such as, most men want young, attractive shapely women for sex, because biologically they are the healthiest for having babies. While women are looking for security, a man who has money, and the means to provide for her and her children. Those are broad brushstrokes but certainly not without merit.
I like the fact the author also addresses the unrealistic fantasy most of us were raised on, that movies like “Pretty Woman.” Fantasy: man purchases hooker falls in love and lives happily ever after. Reality: the man is paying for some fun, and the woman is providing a service. Eventually he will become bored and move on to someone else, because his wallet allows it.
The book strikes many great debates and I’m sure, you’re either going to love or hate it. I recommend the book because even if you don’t learn something from it, it certainly will give plenty of food for thought! 5 stars.
