Thread: Stephen Fry in the Observer

    Default Stephen Fry in the Observer

    I wonder what people think............... if women liked sex as much as men, there would be straight cruising areas in the way there are gay cruising areas. Women would go and hang around in churchyards thinking: 'God, I've got to get my fucking rocks off', or they'd go to Hampstead Heath and meet strangers to shag behind a bush. It doesn't happen. Why? Because the only women you can have sex with like that wish to be paid for it."

    Fry, 53, continues: "I feel sorry for straight men. The only reason women will have sex with them is that sex is the price they are willing to pay for a relationship with a man, which is what they want," he said. "Of course, a lot of women will deny this and say, 'Oh no, but I love sex, I love it!' But do they go around having it the way that gay men do?"

    fry should take up punting and get over himself.
    Between two evils, I always pick the one I never tried before.
    People who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do .: doc

    I think he has a point.

    But I think he has over simplified it and also exaggerated the male need for sex.

    Having said that, I have to say that I do believe that in general we (men) want / need sex much more than women do.
    I mean, in a traditional relationship, how often does the woman initiate sex? A fraction of the time the man does.
    How often does, upon her initiation, the man decline sex? A fraction of the time (on a relative scale) that the man gets knocked back.

    Single male gay friends of mine have the most active sex lives I know of.
    If they want sex, they basically go out! Its virtually guaranteed.

    Christ knows in my youth I went out absolutely bulling for pussy and came home with nothing but my hand!
    Wouldn't happen if I'd played for the other side.

    Stephen Fry writes too much. He was forced to remove photos his twitter he took of the filming of the latest Harry Potter film.

    I think it's tragic that the Observer couldn't see the extent to which he was obviously joking in the original interview in Attitude magazine. They are so po-faced.

    Most men of the world will have had one or two GFs who they suspect or even know don't love sex and definitely see it as a trade off for having a committed relationship. Fortunately, most of us have had hopefully even more GFs who like it for the sake of it.

    HMMMMM Guys pontifcating on the falacy of Frys opinion that women will only have sex in exchange for something else (commitment, money etc).
    And the forum this is discussed is on..... AN ESCORT SITE.

    I love Stephen Fry, very funny man although out the 80’s and now he’s moved into making documentaries.
