Interesting and obvious

It is said that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, but a new study suggests that when it comes to sex, food is the last thing on his mind.
Researchers have found that the male brain is hardwired to seek out sex, even at the expense of a good meal, with specific neurons firing up to over-ride the desire to eat.
Intriguingly, women do not have the same neurons, suggesting that sex for females comes secondary to sustenance.

Because a bloke doesn’t need to be well nourished to breed whereas a woman does.

Anyway, we can always get a kebab 5 minutes later on the way home.

  1. Or, if you’re really classy and want to give her some cuddle time at the end, have a kebab whilst you’re on the job – you can always rest the carton on her back.

  2. Any bloke could tell you this: you can be tired and hungry at 1:30am in a club after drinking since 9pm and not eating since lunch, but get a sniff of action before the club closes and you’re wide awake and the hunger has mysteriously vanished. I suspect whoever commissioned the study didn’t get out much at uni.

    A kebab on the way home? No, come on, slap her on the arse as she gets out of bed and say, “make me a sandwich, there’s a love. Have one yourself since it says in the Telegraph you value nosh over nookie.” Birds love that.

  4. The study was on nematode worms, which have 2 main functions in life, eating and shagging. Appears they will head for a mate, if available, rather than food. Appears reasonable, tried the 9 1/2 weeks stuff once and concluded eating and shagging were best kept separate.

    Bloke in Costa Rica – “No, come on, slap her on the arse as she gets out of bed and say, “make me a sandwich, there’s a love. Have one yourself since it says in the Telegraph you value nosh over nookie.” Birds love that.”

    Some idiot on the internet has been trying to convince everyone that “nosh” is a London euphemism for a blow job. So if you meet a girl who values nosh over nookie *and* reads the Telegraph …. well, what can I say?

    I have an image in my mind of rats with electrodes in their heads manically pressing levers. It makes you wonder what an intergalatic extra-terrestrial scientist would think. I guess he would think the female of the species has the male right where she wants him.

    In passing, of course girls prefer nosh over nookie. That is why so many of them are so fat.

  7. “Nosh” most certainly is a euphemism for a BJ, and not just in London. Much more widely used than the food meaning these days, I would have thought.

    Off topic *and* in passing:

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/women/womens-life/11929535/Oxford-student-activist-resigns-after-admitting-to-non-consensual-sex.html

    Two things to say. One is Oxford got in trouble after it admitted one Black student a few years back. Well, that is working out well isn’t it?

    The other is, oddly enough I feel this poor girl has been stitched up. I am not particularly au fait with modern dating among Da Yoof, especially the Vibrant and Diverse Yoof, but she says:

    “At this year’s NUS Black Students’ Conference, I had sex with someone. The other party later informed me that the sex was not consensual. I failed to properly establish consent before every act. I apologise sincerely and profoundly for my actions.

    As Da Yoof would, no doubt, say Wat da Fark? She did not properly establish consent before every act? Come on. I know these laws are floating around but seriously, you have to ask before you put your hand on her ar$e?

    Meh. Would bang. Well, would try. I always fancy trying to go where no man has gone before.

  9. I had sex with someone. The other party later informed me that the sex was not consensual.

    So, another woman then. Pretty difficult to have sex with a guy who isn’t consenting, unless he’s tied up and protesting wildly.

  10. Tim Newman: “…Pretty difficult to have sex with a guy who isn’t consenting…”

    Not really, have you never watched those wildlife films where vets use electrostimulation on sedated gorillas?

    Tim Newman – “So, another woman then. Pretty difficult to have sex with a guy who isn’t consenting, unless he’s tied up and protesting wildly.”

    Unless, you know, that is his thing.

    The first British woman to clone a dog also manage to get convicted for male rape. Although that did involve a little bit of tying up and probably protesting.

    I would think it is not entirely uncommon. I could certainly introduce you to men who were not consenting at some point. The problem is who would complain about it and who would take it seriously?

  12. “Pretty difficult to have sex with a guy who isn’t consenting,”
    Oh, I dunno.
    At that point the biological urges have taken over & the guy, protesting wildly, is tied up & gagged in a tiny space in his own head.
    Only explanation i can think of , for some occasions.

    But a man is presented with multiple exit lanes between talking to a woman and having sex with her, as every bloke knows. Normally, the bloke is consciously ignoring them and hoping that what he is doing is a good idea anyway (if he is attached) or that he doesn’t somehow fuck it up between now and then (if he is single). I’m struggling to think of a situation when a bloke’s decision to bail would come during or just before actual sex, short of force being used.

    J – “Sorry, wrong thread.”

    These days, alas, it is every thread.

    Tim Newman – “I’m struggling to think of a situation when a bloke’s decision to bail would come during or just before actual sex, short of force being used.”

    Men are vulnerable to shaming. But also at some point they might well say, “Oh well, what the hell, let’s get it over”.

    If that happened to a woman, it would be called rape.

  15. A can of squirty cream and some fresh fruit and you can combine the two, especially if you’re fond of anchovies.

  16. J – don’t worry, it seemed to make perfect sense on this thread.

    Bloke in Costa Rica – isn’t that getting dangerously close to marriage?

  17. JuliaM, think about it in bloke terms.
    You’re a gorilla. A bunch of pink and puny gorrillas with names like Quentin tie you up, shine bright lights at you, stick a needle in your bottom, point a weird machine at your privates, then start jerking you off. What are you going to do?
    Yes, you’ll just close your eyes and enjoy it.

  18. “Pretty difficult to have sex with a guy who isn’t consenting, unless he’s tied up and protesting wildly.”

    Or he just sobered up.

  19. MrsBud and I have, on more than one occasion, woken up to find ourselves engaged in Ugandan negotiations. Neither of us has had a recollection of initiating the negotiations and clearly neither of us consented.

  20. “after it admitted one Black student a few years back”: if memory serves, the complaint was that Oxford admitted only one Afro-Caribbean student that year. Matters weren’t improved when someone implied that they find it easier to admit black African students because some Africans are quite clever.

    DocBud – “A can of squirty cream and some fresh fruit and you can combine the two, especially if you’re fond of anchovies.”

    It really is every thread isn’t it? In other unrelated news, David Bowie has re-released Space Oddity as a vinyl album. It was the second highest selling record in terms of physical sales last week. It sold 670 copies.

    How times have changed.

    I assume some significant chunk of that was by readers of this blog.

    JeremyT – “You’re a gorilla. A bunch of pink and puny gorrillas with names like Quentin tie you up, shine bright lights at you, stick a needle in your bottom, point a weird machine at your privates, then start jerking you off. What are you going to do? Yes, you’ll just close your eyes and enjoy it.”

    Ummm, I don’t know how to tell you this, but you don’t stick a needle in the gorilla’s bottom. You stick a glass rod, quite a sizable glass rod at that, *up* the backside. The electricity from the rod needs to stimulate the prostate. There is no jerking off involved. It is involuntary. Just as raped men sometimes report erections. You tickle the right part, you get a physical response.

    And, well, I don’t think many animals are going to lie there and take it. In my memory no one went near an animal before lots of whispered conversations along the lines of “Are you sure he is out?” “He doesn’t look to be completely out to me” “If it is so safe, why don’t you do it?”

    It makes you miss sensible animals like bulls who will quite happily mount, to the point of completion, younger bulls and so you just need some poor work experience girl to nip in at the right moment with a cup.

    DocBud – “MrsBud and I have, on more than one occasion, woken up to find ourselves engaged in Ugandan negotiations. Neither of us has had a recollection of initiating the negotiations and clearly neither of us consented.”

    So the last one to lawyer up goes to jail?

    dearieme – “Matters weren’t improved when someone implied that they find it easier to admit black African students because some Africans are quite clever.”

    A larger population to choose from. Not quite as addled by marijuana on average either. Not surprising really.

    I find it hard to believe things have changed so much that two Black lesbians at Oxford could actually meet and hook up. I mean, that there were two for a start. That one would immediately scream rape doesn’t surprise me at all.

  22. @ SMFS
    Maybe I was “up” in the dark ages because I knew several students with a far better supply of melanin than myself.
    I suspect dearieme is right.
