    Re: PUBLIC POLL: Do you view women as property?

    I voted yes, but it's a personal lifestyle choice, not something I think of every woman in every situation. It's specific to me.

    Perhaps we should go back to the good old days where when you found your soulmate you just clubbed her in the head and dragged her back to your cave!!!

    Re: PUBLIC POLL: Do you view women as property?

    Do I view women in general as property? Of course not.

    Would I view a woman as property if that's what she desired me to do, and I wished to have that kind of relationship with her? Abso****inglutely.

    When I get my harem, they will be *mine* (and my BFs - dual ownership)

I see nothing in your view that would make a woman your property or subservient to you. Rather it seems you view them as a valuable member of your family, which you would cherish and take care of. And I'm down with that.
    No, his opinion varies very little from celticlord's. Jerry feels he has authority over his wife. He is to be in control of her, and she is to allow that.

    Where the **** is the difference?

    You don't think people in power exchange relationships cherish one another and value them as a part of the relationship?

    When I get my harem, I'll cherish each and every one of them. They will all be valuable members of my family, and I will take care of them as long as they allow and I wish to.

    The difference is in Celticlords view of women and Jerry's. CL's post was quite, quite different. Maybe go read it then come back here.

    Did I say that?

    What does this have to do with what Celticlord said?

    I read all of his posts. I don't see the difference.

    You implied it by stating:

    What does this have to do with what Celticlord said?
    Why does everything have to do with him? I was talking about myself and my desire to possess a harem of women.

    So when Celticlord says his woman is his property and she is required to kneel before him, and that he believes in administering corporal punishment upon her when she deserves it, that is the same as what Jerry said?

    Okay, RR.

    Why does everything have to do with him? I was talking about myself and my desire to possess a harem of women.
    Because that is what was being discussed at the time between you and I. Regardless, you are obviously going to reach to defend them and I respect your opinion on the matter, even though I disagree with it.

In the beginning, I supported my wife through college and now as I begin college, she will be the main bread winner. And to be perfectly honest, I feel as though I am some sort of failure not being able to provide for my family at age 30. I have no issue with my wife working, but I feel as though I am not living up to my end of the bargain by not providing much right now. It tugs at my brain everyday. I know that over time, I will again provide support for my family, in a monetary sense, but right now it feels like I am freeloading off my wife and I absolutely hate it.
    Believe it or not, it's not a "man" thing. I'd feel the same way, and I'm a woman. I would have a very difficult time not working and feeling like I was earning money. I enjoy the measure of control and autonomy that earning my own way provides within the context of a relationship. I would "get" that we were taking care of each other, but I'd have a hard time allowing it to happen. It's so wired into me to take care of myself.

    Also, explain this one to me then: What about the guys who expected me to be faithful, but thought it was no big deal if THEY cheated on ME?
    Pretty common for a guy to want to have a harem and not share it... Horses, lions, and hippos are like that too. I think evolution explains it pretty well. It doesn't make sense to want to take care of another guy's babies, but it would make sense to want other guys to take care of his to maximize the spread of his genes.

    Some people want exclusivity to minimize the risk of STDs, especially if they prefer sex without condoms. They also probably don't want to have to care for somebody else's kid if sombody gets you pregnant.

    On a less rational level, people are enamored with this idea of two people being soulmates and not needing anybody else in that way. It makes people feel inadequate if you require others for sexual gratification.

    Personally Id like to have a multiperson relationship. I have seen it work before, but I havent had one. Though I would have to be the only male as Im not bisexual. I am serious about my current partner, though, and Im not willing to give her up in order to have a multiperson relationship, and shes not bi, but shes great in every other way. ((:

    I think most people feel this way about it. fidelity is important to me, but the idea of a 3-some is a turn-on. In discussing it with my boyfriend, though, we've both come to the conclusion that there is a risk of changing the dynamics of our relationship, and we're not willing to do that. We value each other more than a fleeting fantasy.
