The Vox Day Axiom of Sexual Socionomics

Sex is cheap: Why young men have the upper hand in bed, even when they’re failing in life. – By Mark Regnerus – Slate Magazine

Civilization is built on blocked, redirected, and channeled sexual impulse, because men will work for sex. Today’s young men, however, seldom have to. As the authors of last year’s book Sex at Dawn: The Prehistoric Origins of Modern Sexuality put it, “Societies in which women have lots of autonomy and authority tend to be decidedly male-friendly, relaxed, tolerant, and plenty sexy.” They’re right. But then try getting men to do anything.

I’ve been reading Vox Day for years, and I think one of his least interesting hobbyhorses is the political economy of sex. Yet, here is more evidence that he’s on the ball. OK, so he’s right again.
