The Love Experience

experience

Glenn and a few others had a question about last week’s Love Commodity post.:

@Rollo – This seems very inconsistent to me. How can this be true – ” Men and women can and do love each other intensely and genuinely. They can and do see past each other’s deficiencies and their love endures. ” While this is true? “In an era of unapologetic feminine primacy and unignorable open Hypergamy, this commodification undeniably rests with the feminine.”

You’ll have to forgive a long explanation, I couldn’t simply drop this into the commentary, a full post was necessary.

The first thing we need to consider is the Male Experience vs. the female experience. I hate to get too existential, but it comes down to our individuated experiences as men and women. I’m going to give two examples here and this will also cover the Hypergamy is everything thread I noticed the commentary too.

There’s an interesting conflict of societal messaging we get from an equalitarian / feminine-primary social order. This is one that simultaneously tells us that “we are not so different” or “we are more alike than we are different” and then, yet implores use to “celebrate our diversity” and “embrace (or tolerate) our differences” as people.

This is easily observable in issues of ethnicity, but it also crosses over into issues of gender. The most popular trope is that ideas of gender are a social construct and that women and men are comparative equals and only their physical plumbing makes them different in form only.

From a Red Pill perspective we see the error in evidence of this egalitarian fantasy. I’ve written countless posts on the evidential and logical fallacies that make up gender equalism, but the important thing to be aware of is the conflict inherent within that belief – equalism expects men and women’s existential experiences to be the same, while also pleading that we embrace the differences it purports we don’t actually have.

It fundamentally denies the separation, from an evolved biological / psychological perspective, that men and women experience life in different ways. The idea is that it’s the nebulous ‘society’ that determines our gender experiences and less, if nothing, of it is truly influenced by a human being’s psychological-biological firmware.

zdr01dz posted this:

I think maybe this is in part because men have no innate desire to marry up. Hypergamy doesn’t compute for us. I know what hunger feels like and I assume women feel it the same way I do. I’m empathetic to poor, hungry children because I know what they’re feeling. However I have no idea what hypergamy feels like. I’ve never felt it’s pull.

My second example comes from Women and Sex in which I explore the fallacy of the social convention that insists “women are just as sexual as men” and that “women want sex, enjoy sex, even more than men.”

This canard is both observably and biologically disprovable, but the presumption is based on the same “we’re all the same, but celebrate the difference” conflicting principle that I mentioned above. If a dynamic is complimentary to the feminine then the biological basis is one we’re expected to ’embrace the diversity’ of, but if the dynamic is unflattering to the feminine it’s the result “of a society that’s fixated on teaching gender roles to ensure the Patriarchy, we’re really more alike than not.”

The idea is patently false because there is no real way any woman can experience the existence and conditions that a man does throughout his life. I mention in that essay about how a female amateur body builder I knew who was dumbstruck by how horny she became after her first cycle of anabolic steroids. “I can’t believe men can live in a state like this” were her exact words. She was just beginning to get a taste of what men experience and control in their own skins 24 hours a day and it was unsettling for her.

Women are used to a cyclic experience of sexuality, whereas men must be ready to perform at the first, best opportunity sexually. These are our individuated experiences and despite all the bleating of the equalists they are qualitatively different. As zdr01dz observes, no man has an idea of what Hypergamy feels like. To my knowledge there is no drug or hormone that can simulate the existential experience of Hypergamy. Even if there were, men and women’s minds are fundamentally wired differently, so the simulated experience could never be replicated for a man.

I understand how Hypergamy works from observing the behavior and understanding the motivating biology for it. I also understand that our species evolved with, and benefitted from it – or at least it makes deductive sense that what we know as Hypergamy today is a derivative of that evolution – but what I don’t have is a firsthand, existential experience of Hypergamy and I never will. Likewise, women will never have a similar existential experience of what it’s like to be a man.

So it should be an easy follow to deduce that how a woman experiences love, as based on her Hypergamic opportunistic impulses, is a fundamentally different experience than that of a man’s. The equalist social order want’s love to be an equal, mutual, agreement on a definition of love that transcends individuated gender experience, but it simply will not accept that an intersexual experience of love is defined by each sex’s individuated experience.

I have no doubt that there are areas of crossover in both men’s idealistic concept of love and women’s opportunistic concept, but this experience of love is still defined by gender-specific individuation. By that I mean that women can and do experience intense feelings of love for a man based on her Hypergamously influenced criteria for love.

I’m actually surprised that more women have yet to call me to the carpet about their personal experiences of love from the commodity post, but if you sift through the comments on Women in Love and other blog/forum comments you’ll come across examples of women describing in great detail how deeply they love their husbands / boyfriends, and are in complete disarray over being told their love stems from Hypergamic opportunism. Again, I have no doubt that their feelings of love are genuine to them based on their individuated concepts of love; indeed they’re ready to fight you tooth and nail to defend their investment in those feelings. What I’m saying is that the criteria a man should need to meet in order to generate those emotions and arrive at a love state are not universally mutual as an equalitarian social order would have the whole of society believe.

So, yes, men and women can and do love each other intensely and genuinely – from their own individuated experiences. They can and do see past each other’s deficiencies and their love endures. The processes they used to come to this love state differs in concept and existential individuation, and what sustains that love state is still dependent upon the criteria of men’s idealistic and women opportunistic concepts of love.

The Cardinal Rule of sexual strategies:
For one gender’s sexual strategy to succeed the other gender must compromise or abandon their own.

The commodification of that love state is presently weighted on the feminine because the Feminine Imperative is socially ascendant. The importance of satisfying the female sexual (and really life-goal) strategy takes primary social precedence today. Thus men’s individuated experience is devalued to an assumption of an “it’s-all-equal” universality while women’s is blown up out of all real valuation with collective expectations of “embracing their unique difference” set apart from that universality. If men’s experience is one-size-fits-all it’s really a small, and socially blameless, step for a woman to withhold the reward criteria men place on their idealistic love in order to satisfy their own sexual strategy.

Women’s social primacy allows them to feel good about themselves for commodifying the idealistic rewards men value to come to their own state of love, as well as maintain it.

It is one further step to embrace the concept that men’s experience of love, the idealism he applies to it and even his own sexual and life imperatives are in fact the same as those of women’s – while still setting women’s apart when it serves them better. Thus the cardinal rule of sexual strategies comes to a feminine-primary consolidation by socially convincing men that women’s experience and imperatives are, or should be considered to be, the same as men’s individuated experiences. Add women’s already innate solipsism to this and you have a formula for a gender-universal presumption of the experience of love based primarily on the individuated female experience of love.

In other words, women expect men to socially and psychologically agree with, reinforce and cooperate with the opportunistic feminine model of love as the equalist, gender-mutual model model of love while still believing that women share their own idealistic model. It’s the correct model that should work for everyone, or so women’s solipsism would have us believe.

@ Atticus Or maybe women don’t love at all? They have strong chemical attachments to their babies (love), but once the babies grow up, they’re just other people to use. In my mother’s case that is certainly true. She doesn’t care about her adult children or even grandchildren but she might be a special case. I remember her chatting it up about dating while my dad, her dutiful husband of almost 50 years lay dying from cancer. Thankfully she was out of the room and he couldn’t hear her.

I should add that when she was young my mother married a guy who had other wives in different cities. When she found out she divorced him but was already pregnant with my sister. My father who was the most honest, dutiful beta provider you would ever meet married her a few years later, had a great career and cared for her the rest of his life. She barely worked and was a lazy mother. During my entire childhood I can’t remember her showing any appreciation towards my dad. All she did was complain.

@ Jeremy When a woman expresses overt interest in a man, that man will be more attracted to HER as a result (assuming she surpasses a certain threshold of physical attractiveness). When a man expresses overt interest in a woman, that woman will be more attracted to HERSELF as a result, but not more attracted to him. This is why so many women enjoy validation from male orbiters – the attraction of those orbiters make her feel sexy and powerful, but not more attracted to any of them. And, feeling sexy and powerful, she is more likely to go out… Read more »

“Men aren’t permitted to have expectations of women. Men are expected to perform. The whining is about not knowing what we are performing for.” Well, yes.

Re: female arousal. There was a NYT article about this (the same one that discussed the studies of vaginal responses to various visual stimuli) a few years ago, and basically the scientists quoted in the article were saying that a woman’s arousal is quasi-narcissistic in that what gets them most aroused, sexually, is the fact of a desirable man’s arousal for them. The man has to be desirable, or in that frame, but it is his arousal for them, the fact that he finds them arousing (and the erection is the lie detector test on that) that makes her aroused.… Read more »

He writes romance stories for women. Probably a blue pill.

Which got me to thinking. Do women like romance stories because they wish they could love like a man? I dunno. Haven’t read a lot of them but it seems that they are also about bringing out the bad boy’s inner beta. Pure fantasy.

@jeremy So I think you have your cause and effect a bit backwards. Women are not attracted to erections in men. They feel empowered by causing those erections on men to whom they are ALREADY attracted. No woman would feel attracted to a hobo if she caused him to have an erection, but she might smile about it later and feel better about herself. I think we may be splitting hairs w.r.t. defining attraction. Hard science has demonstrated that women have a measurable biological response to seeing an erection. That is just fact. Now, it’s fair to say that that… Read more »

Sun Wukong – “So it’s a lack of outcome independence?” Yes and no. If you are bothered by how others react then outcome independence plays a role. If you simply observing that something failed to achieve the desired results then it could be objective introspection. If you’re doing something different naturally you’re invested in the outcome to some degree, instead be invested in the process such that all outcomes have value. You observation about congruence I think is correct. If you see an incongruity in your own behavior change it. My opinion is congruity is essential to frame. One the… Read more »

Re: special radar

I’m guessing this belief stems from male insecurity reinforced by female rhetoric. Over the years it’s become an old wives tale, likely a method to use guilt to gain confessions of whatever.

My mother was a pro at this shit and it worked until I demanded a bill of charges. She responded with “you know what you’ve done.” I responded with “then it must not be a big deal or I’d be getting punished.” Darth Dread grounded me for two weeks for rebelliousness. It was around this time I stopped talking to my parents about anything personal.

If you want easy sex from 20 something HB8s – HB10s you need one of two things.

1) Male model good looks

Only for the 10s–the others don’t want to be outdone. In fact, the 10s probably would prefer a man with looks of 8-9.

You know the only issue I have with upping the alpha sometimes is that there’s such thing as “too much”, but I can’t figure out how it works. I mean it’s like if your cockiness exceeds your actual ability to keep up with what it gets you in to, women know really quick.

Aloofness will pull a lot of chestnuts out of the fire. When in doubt, break rapport.

No, women do not know. Probably the single biggest burden I’ve sloughed off this past year is the suspicion that women had secret radars. They don’t.

They know if you’re paying them too much attention. It alerts their neediness radar, which is very accurate.

re: “They know if you’re paying them too much attention.”

They also know if you start paying attention to someone else. All I’m saying is the need for worrying about finesse in this area is overrated, especially for the vast majority of men.

I don’t think it’s true that rational confidence beats irrational confidence in terms of success with women.

ballista asks, on his site, “why is divornography marketed exclusively to women? Why are there articles in women’s magazines and romance novels for women like Eat Pray Love that glamorize divorce, but nothing of the sort exists or is marketed to men? Why is there no male divorce porn, no stories of men divorcing their obese, aging harpy wives, liberating themselves from their marriage vows, and ending up living happily ever after banging large-breasted 21 year-old lingerie models?”

Can you imagine the uproar? Can you feel the Love yet?

There’s a lot to mine here. If rational confidence comes exclusively from one’s accomplishments, then your statement follows.

However, if one’s rational confidence comes from denying the Pedestalization of Women and accepting the superiority of the Masculine (i.e., the Masculine imperative), then the rational confidence beats irrational confidence. Or maybe you assume that my MI-based confidence is that same as what you call “irrational confidence”.

More than ever, I’m leaning to the view that the reason for working on fundamentals: working out, grooming, etc., is to produce confidence. If you get your confidence somewhere else, such as in a bottle from the liquor store, you’ll have success too.

The irrational antimating that women do is designed to overcome rational confidence.

@tasdg, thanks for the opportunity for clarification. What I am meaning here by irrational confidence is specifically a man’s behavior directed toward a woman reflecting his level of absolute certainty that he could indeed bang her if he felt like it regardless of any positive feedback he may or may not have received yet.

Ain’t no shame in my ‘splain. Women are always vague about what they mean by confidence but it is in reality sexual confidence to the max.

Is there any actual defense from women against irrational confidence? I know this is heartiste’s touchstone so he probably has an answer one way or the other, but I think there is no possible defense. Which is why women don’t want betas to learn about it.

I’ll testify to the confidence thing. I used to be so passive around girls, especially pretty ones. Like afraid of them. I was over my friend’s the other day and there was an HB10 on the bed. And when I say 10 I mean 10. Normally I’d avoid her. I’d be so nervous. Instead I just walked in and plopped myself down on the bed right next to her and started watching whatever movie it was they were watching. I joked around with her a little bit and made some small talk. She was into some similar stuff I’m into… Read more »

I became aware of this site and the manosphere a couple of months ago. It has already corrupted me.

Last night I got a hair cut. As I left the girl behind the register smiled at me and said, “have a nice night.” The first thing that popped into my head was, “what does she want from me?” I’m getting so cynical about women. (facepalm) But I know you guys are right. I should be that cynical.

re: “As I left the girl behind the register smiled at me and said, “have a nice night.””

Raise your eyebrows at her and smirk , turn away as if to leave, touch yourself anywhere but your head (putting your money away is perfect), turn back squarely to her, tilt your head back (towards looking down your nose) and purr “I’m planning on it.” Then laugh.

She *expects* irrational confidence from you and she cannot understand why you don’t exhibit it towards her. I’m talking to myself too.

zd, cynicism is part of the journey, just don’t get stuck there. Eventually you just accept that most women see the world in different terms, and the cynicism departs.

if you can get to the point where you can accept them for what they are, lovely creatures who can give you laughs, limited love, pleasure and anxiety, you are golden.

@nathan “I’m in my 20’s, master’s degree, in shape (cut, muscular, but not huge), 5’11”, professional job”

mentioning the degree and job is counter-productive, since a woman will want to put you in the beta provider pool to be used at a later date

this means you are competing based only on “in shape (cut, muscular, but not huge), 5’11”

suggest you take a course in Improv and ride a Harley

@ badpainter No man. I ride a razor scooter and I get mad pussy. This bitch jumped me the other day while I was riding around the block and stripped down to her panties and started grinding on the handlebars. Couldn’t control herself. You can ride a motorcycle and not get pussy. I’ve seen it happen many times. The clothing/hairstyle thing speaks volumes though. Is that changing our genetics? Nope. So that theory goes right out the window. Dress to impress. My sister, trying to be polite, didn’t tell me I looked like shit. But she would say that looks… Read more »

Interesting discussion but does it matter if a man understands the finer points of hypergammy or is it enough to know women fuck/ marry up and are on constant quest for the bigger, better deal?

The Hangover. Stu dumped his cheating shrew fiance after accidentally marrying Heather Graham, the hot single-mom stripper. Not real sure that qualifies.
