My wife at about 27 without makeup

In respect of a recent discussion about women and makeup, here are two old photos of my wife in her late twenties. I am pretty sure she is not wearing makeup in either shot. In the first photo she has apparently just been for a swim in a local river.

I don’t mind makeup on women, but my wife doesn’t wear it much.

Why do women talk and make noises during sex?


” The studies revealed that orgasm was most frequently reported by women following self-manipulation of the clitoris, manipulation by the partner, oral sex delivered to the woman by a man, and least frequently during vaginal penetration.

More detailed examination of responses during intercourse revealed that, while female orgasms were most commonly experienced during foreplay, copulatory vocalizations were reported to be made most often before and simultaneously with male ejaculation.

These data together clearly demonstrate a dissociation of the timing of women experiencing orgasm and making copulatory vocalizations and indicate that there is at least an element of these responses that are under conscious control, providing women with an opportunity to manipulate male behavior to their advantage. “


It is interesting to see more information coming out on how men and women really behave in intimate situations, that is not reflected through the lens of gender politics or the tropes of masculine or feminine pornography.

Two interesting observations in this study are that the majority of women are willing to stay with a man who, while otherwise satisfactory, does not induce them to have orgasms during sex. And that women often use encouraging comments during sex to enhance their man’s self-esteem and strengthen the pair bond.

After the eyeless dark

of night I can perceive

a tree outside with bare

limbs raised in prayer

for spring and you beside

me with your lips like red

clouds at the promise

of dawn.

Isn’t it surprising that travelling businessmen prefer elegant air hostesses to dumpy flight attendants?

I have elevated a recent comment of mine to a post. Here:

The Economist used to be a magazine for adults. For “men of the world.” It has now succumbed to finger-wagging puritanism. As the Hainan Airlines and Qatar Airways people know, customers want to be served – all other things being equal – by attractive women (or charming gentlemen.) Pretty women cheer up nervous or stressed or bored businessmen. International airlines carry a lot of such men.

A nice pair of legs ankling down the aisle is one of the rewards of masculine success in being important enough to fly. If a man is a moral kind of chap, it will remind him happily of the comforts of wife and home.

The Economist used to deal in the real world. Clearly their columnist has had backlash from his readers. But in response he doubles down on the virtue signalling.

The blind liberalism of The Economist in its current state simply ignores the reality of sexual and racial differences. It also ignores the importance of religion. In short, it fails to do what it most should – tell the unvarnished truth.

Elite business journalists in the West might claim that dumpy efficiency is what makes an air hostess but that is not the romance of flight. Everybody instinctively understands that.

This sort of thing just confirms my opinion that social media such as blogs must be used to tell the honest truth when the mainstream media like The Economist will not.
