Why is it okay for a woman to read a romance novel but if a man looks at porn its cheating. Come on Romance novels can be pretty fucking explicit and you know your wife is fantasizing when they read them. So whats with the double fucking standard?

Because reading is fundamental

Please. Women reading Nora Roberts or shit like that is NO different than men looking at porn.

Think hard and try and come up with one thing that DOESN'T have somesort of double standard attached to it (either directly or implied) when it comes to men and women (esp. when it comes to "social" issues).

Woman are verbal oriented, whereas men are visual orriented.

That is sooo true! There really is no such thing as true equality when it comes to the sexes - we are just too different.

As for the original question, I think the difference is in who we are fantasizing about. Guys fantasize about the women they are watching whereas women tend to replace the character they are reading about with the guy they are with or want to be with. You never know, she may be fantasizing about the guy she wants to be with when she is having sex with you .

The reason for this is that women are a privileged class in this society.

Worshiped by all.

They hold the power of the vagina, and now make money like a man does as well.

There used to be balance when they had the pussy, and we had the money, but that is all gone.

Now that balance no longer exists, and women are out of control. They have become the abusers of power. (as men were in the past)

Like any ruling class, they make the rules, and play the martyr so they can hold on to their power.

Erotic fiction is the respectable form of pornography.

I remember this hot chick reading a few things out of them to me when I was in high school

hind sight is a motherfucker!

I work in a book factory over the summers.

When I worked night shift there, I hated printing romance novels. Seriously, it's 3 AM, you're tired, you want to go home, and you're checking print and you read some WEIRD SHIT. There were words I had to write down and consult biology textbooks about. It's pretty much the last thing you really need in the middle of a shift.

I ain't kidding. Some women may complain about porn, but there are few things I've seen on the internet that are as screwed up as some of those novels I printed. And I've seen goatse.cx.

Great point

so I should skip the porn and start reading romance novels??? I've been screwing up this whole time!!!

They'll control us all soon...

Seriously, one day, it'll come down to this: "Honey, can you empty that darn gun safe? We need room for the crib."

Watch out.

Who said it's cheating? If your woman has a problem with porn tell her to STFU and get over it. If you got married before finding out your woman considers porn cheating, well it sucks to be you. That's like getting married before finding out if your woman can cook or likes sex. Do your research and educated them first.

Any chick that has a problem with porn has low self esteem and is going to be a head case anyway, so you don't want her.

When you read, you pronounce everything in your dialect / accent. What do deaf people do?

A woman with the same level of beliefs that I hold (and expressed in that thread) would not read that sort of material, as it is viewed on the same level as porn.

No double standard.

There is a reason why you are not supposed to be 'unequally yoked'...

This is very true..and perplexing at the same time

... Oh dude, I can so completely concur about Romance Novelists!

... I posted a thread or two on ARFCOM summer-before-last about an epoch of a kewl-assed stint I did in Manhattan, NY for the company. Spent the majority of the summer @ the Hilton on 53rd & 6th Ave.

... Preface: - I'm no "Romeo" but I can hold my own. One particular week, there was a huge Romance Novelists convention in the swanky hotel and I thought I’d give a chance to meet some of these womenz writers after hours - Whooo boy - was I ever in for a surprise. After a few martinis, many of these ladies just loved to spill their guts when it came to romance, “sexcapades”, flings and fantasies – Likewise, I told a few of my life-stories as well.

… At the time Titanium Tits was active on the boards an she gave me a pile of dung about "publishing" some minor escapades with these lovely gals, but fuck her – no one jeopardized their anonymity and no harm was done. (in fact, the whole week after-hours was uber cool!)

… Ah yes, good times they were
