George likes sex

More bad newspaper advice in today's paper:
Dear Annie: My husband, "George," seems to feel the need to constantly grope me. ... During the time we dated and for the first three years of our marriage, George and I had normal conversations about sports, politics, movies and books, but now it's only sex, sex and more sex. ...

For medical reasons, my sex drive isn't what it used to be. I try to accommodate George, and we are intimate even when I'm not feeling well. George is 52 and in fairly good health. He isn't on any medications, nor has he had any injuries that would account for this. I'm tired of the incessant groping and sex talk. How do I deal with this before I scream? — Married to an Octopus

Dear Married: Get your husband to a doctor for a complete checkup, including a neurological exam. George's fixation on sex is making it difficult for his brain to focus on anything else.
I skipped some parts, but the letter clearly says that the wife has the medical problem, not the husband. To these female advice givers, being a man is a pathology.

This advice column succeeded Ask Ann Landers. Landers was Jewish and divorced. Her daughter also writes a silly advice column, and has been married four times. Landers' twin sister was Dear Abby. I don't know why Jews are so eager to give such bad advice to anyone who will listen.

Update: The NY Times reports that female arousal products have become a big business:
In the absence of a government-approved female counterpart to men’s potency drugs like Viagra, Cialis and Levitra, many women are turning to over-the-counter products, including lubricants, arousal gels, massage oils, nutritional and herbal supplements, and vibrators. Drugstore chains are now selling these products right next to the bandages and heating pads. ...

Female sexual dysfunction remains a controversial topic, even as it becomes an official diagnosis (to be called female sexual interest/arousal disorder) in the DSM-V, the new edition of the psychiatric diagnostic manual, due in 2013. An often cited statistic, from a report in The Journal of the American Medical Association in 1999, is that 43 percent of women ages 18 to 59 experience some form of sexual dysfunction, including lack of desire, arousal or orgasm; or pain during intercourse.
Of course the shrinks are happy to declare half of all women disordered if it sells products.

My blog is just a pearl of wisdom in a sea of bad advice.

Could be that they are eager to give advice because their JOB as advice coumnists is to give advice to people who ask for it.

What's your reason for being so eager to give out advice to people. People who don't even ask you for it ?

These advice columnists give bad advice. Yes, they make money doing it. Someone should pay columnists to give good advice instead.

Good grief, and guess what? If this man had an affair (not that I condone cheating) it would be his fault as well, right? Wow, some people are so far removed from reality that it's stunning to see their lack of logic.

Gotta wonder, where are the counselors stating that she has a money or attention fixation and she needs to see someone to fix that, hmmm?

One last thing; I always find it somewhat funny to see these women complain about men in this manner. Given a few years, they also complain when men DON'T view them in this manner. Fried Ice anyone?

The most common complaints to these advice columnists are women who say that they get too little sex or too much sex.

Yikes! I don't like your last sentence in your paragraph 2: "I don't know why Jews are so eager to give bad advice to anyone who will listen". It is counterproductive to make comments like that..... Barbara

Good grief, and in addition imagine precisely what? If or when in case this man had some kind of celebration (not too I condone cheating) it can be his mistake as well as, appropriate? Fantastic, people tend to feel thus far removed from truth which it's stunning to see their deficiency of logic.
Gotta wonder, in which are the advisors stating that she has a revenue or perhaps attention fixation as well as also she should see an individual to correct which, hmmm?
One final thing; I always come across it fairly witty to see these females grumble pertaining to individuals in this manner. Given a year or perhaps 2, the few also grumble whenever males DON'T read them in this manner. Fried Ice any person?

These information columnists give bad tips and advice. Yes, the couple make money doing it. Someone must pay columnists to give good advice rather.
