Just Some Technical Difficulties

So it seems I missed a lot here. So yeah, this morning I got up and felt like shit then I whipped up a bit of food to break the night fast. I watched some Al Jazeera world news then headed out. Two bus rides later, bam college. I went into the book store to try and sell a textbook I'd had just lying around. Did I mention it was raining this morning?

So yeah it was turned down, money well spent silly wolf, $25.00 you're never getting back. So I walked through a hallway and a guy about a good few feet ahead of me walked through a door that would stay open for a few seconds after someone would walk through it. I casually walked through it and a split second later it closed right behind me. I felt so badass. lol

I then proceeded to walk one foot in front of the other in a drunk test line and sway a bit. I suddenly had an onset of damn-I must-look-so-sexy because of the feeling of being badass. So I was really happy with that, that I had it going on all up in there (with the self-perceived sexiness and what not). So off to the mathlab I went.

I'd finally had time to do my review and test. But in the same day?! WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK? Needless to say, procratination is a deceiving seductress (couldn't find a male equivalent word [DARN YOU ENGLISH LANGUAGE!]). So I did the review and made the worst grade ever. I was in the grip of a depression almost.

Then I was all like. FUCK IT I'LL DO IT LIVE! Just like Bill O'Reilly I pulled it out of my ass and summoned the courage and mental math ability to do the test. Plus I reviewed my notes and memorized some notes. So I did the test. Even I could not fucking believe how well I did. I must've been so nervous taking that review that it was what screwed me over.

Well now all the math that's left is my final. Finals week is insane. The college as I forgot to mention was a virtual ghost-town, but I do like ghost-towns. Especially the quiet almost haunting calm like that of a storm beginning to come. So after that I left and went to my usual bus stop. It was still raining at this time (bad, thundering and shit [LOL]).

Even the bus stop that had a little roof over it was no match for the dreaded sideways rain. So with umbrella still in hand I used it like a shield to ward off the rain from this nice guy and I. So later everyone gets on the bus and the guy I was shielding sits across from me, we have a nice chit-chat about finals week.

And I made a joke that the weather was ever so appropriate for finals week. The ominous and mysterious wonder that would entail if you lose your GPA or increase it. Then seemingly out-of-nowhere the bus comes to a stop as usual, then silence from the engine, then the lights go out and bam. Stuck there. "What the hell?" lol

"Just some technical difficulties I sure" I said to people who were probably close to panic mode, nice guy also said it too jokingly. Then a few seconds later the lights come back on then the starting grind of the engine and then the bus was off (on the road) again. A few stops later the same thing (LOL). "Just some technical difficulties".

I got off a little while later after the bus started back up and left my aquaintance with good luck getting to the city. Then I catch another then leave another and head home. Then after that everything was boring aside from personal matters and the like that's too boring to even mention. Vandag was 'n goeie dag vandag. :-)

Well...

No need for male seduction. For straight people, girls control things, so no guy needs to woo and tempt the girl. And for gay guys, seduction starts and finishes so fast, it barely has time to be named.

Now... that's a truly sad vision.

I suspect that this applies only within that small sub-group of gays who feel stigmatized if their list of conquests doesn't continue to expand!

Well...

Not sure why anything outside of your personal mindset needs denegration, but...

I'm using the definition of seduction (to persuade or induce to have sexual intercourse, from dictionary.com), not some heightened fictional Jane Austen usage.

So, in that context, it is merely biological. Males tend to not need "persuasion" to have sexual intercourse. People may not be interested in someone else, but when interest exists, in a male-male context, no persuasion need be applied.

To take some massive leap that it means immediate sex is fine, and it certainly can if that's what both parties want. It can also mean dating and building an emotional element for however long that takes. But at no point does it seem like you'd have to seduce and persuade the other. From the moment it begins, both parties are on board.

That resistance and "winning her over" does seem limited to the male-female dynamic (and every romantic comedy in the movies), where guys are ready to go, and girls control the pace and are often instructed to hold back initially.

But -

Doesn't the commonness of the word 'seductress' (female, usually seducing a male) itself imply that men sometimes do take some persuasion?

jeff's picture

Well...

Hard to say without context. It is often a woman using sex to get something else, though, in which case the resistance isn't to the sex but the cost of the sex. A willing male doesn't need seduction, which doesn't preclude seduction as part of sexplay, of course.

Denigration?

Should I assume that the term was intended to serve as a "put down" for those of my "mindset?"

The adjective "personal" would have the reader believe that you've grokked mine... the inference being that my "take" is quite idiosyncratic and contrary to the experience of other gays!

My question must remain rhetorical since the niceties inherent in our shared proclivities for vagueness do provide for plausible deniability...

****

On the off chance my comment was totally misunderstood... I was addressing this particular statement:

"And for gay guys, seduction starts and finishes so fast, it barely has time to be named."

I allow you the right to engage in hyperbole... we all do it! Maybe that's all this statement was...

But... if it was intended to be understood as stated, my comment stands:

"Now... that's a truly sad vision.

You may be speaking from your own experience... I have no way of knowing! But I can assure you that that characterization of gay behavior applies only to a very small subset. (You do have some wiggle room, however: When is it just everyday sex, and when is it seduction?)

It does seem...

... that you have some judgment for people who have a different view than you, and that you are positioning yourself as being in the right, no? So, I usually don't care about the content of anyone's actual personal opinions, but moreso the implied correctness of their opinions. So that is usually the trigger moreso than what any opinion may be.

I still don't think males engage in seduction, though, for the most part. If you listed of 10 of my gay friends, without analyzing things, I would be able to say yes/no whether I was interested in sleeping with them. Those decisions were pretty automatic from when I first knew them. And that list is pretty immutable... well, when sober. ;-)

I'd say the only time there is male seduction is when closeted, when it is all clues and innuendo, and not wanting to reveal until you know they are also ready to reveal, but once out, and dealing with other people who are out, that largely disappears. If you're both gay, both single, both interested... where's the seduction? If one guy wants to wait a few dates before getting serious, that's fine, but it still isn't seduction. The other guy isn't being seduced, he's being patient.

Of course, people may also have different definitions of seduction.

Oh, you two.

Stop being so silly with your debates!

elph's picture

Thank you!

That warrants repetition: Thank you!

I think....

It is a singular debate that just continues.

I like you.

I mean, I've always liked you, but I haven't seen much of the Everyday Offline Life of Lonewolf before, and, well... if you feel badass from walking through a door, I think we could be friends.

Wouldn't a male seductress just be a seducer?

lonewolf678's picture

That would be nice MacAvity :-)

I also thought today of the word Seductor, is good no? Seducer would've worked too though. lol
