Sex in the Poli: Men are from Mars + Woman are from Venus

Science has proven that men and women are definitely NOT alike. For instance women often complain that communicating with men is like trying to talk to dead wood while men complain that all we women do is blab, blab, blab… Now, this may seem a little simplistic, but the fact is that it might have been fashionable at once to believe that we were all persons first and members of our gender second. This, of course, was so much hooey, or bull…hit. We are different — in our habits, and in the way we react to environmental stimuli and the way we spend our leisure time; and we are especially different when it comes to our attitudes regarding relationships, sex, and every day common things. Sex in the Poli today lists documented proof of this and proves that Men are definitely from Mars and Woman are from Venus.
To prove my point, and keeping in line with this column, lets analyze the subject of sex. For some men the only time they are not thinking about sex is when they are actually having it. For women it is more talking about men’s desire for sex and laughing at the men, thinking that they have them all figured out…then they eventually sometimes regain their sanity.
You see, women think there is something to figure out about men but there really isn’t. If you could see inside the typical man’s mind you’d see…Sex…sports…Sex…eat…SEX…sports again…take a dump… and also a lot more SEX. And that’s about it. Oh and I did forget beer for some of them too. It really doesn’t get a whole lot more complicated than that.
But if you looked into a woman’s mind it would be a whole different story…”What is he thinking?”…”What is she thinking?”… “Does my ass look big in these jeans?”…”Why did he look at me like that?”…”Was he just flirting with me?”…”Should I have sex with him?”… “Am I gaining weight?”…”Yes, my ass is definitely too fat for these jeans.”…
But don’t worry folks, Sex in the Poli guarantees that if you study hard with the lists in hand, then you can limit the differences… and who knows… you can even get lucky!
