Gender role reversal on a very old — and lame — scenario.

"A British woman is divorcing her hubby on grounds the erotic bestseller 'Fifty Shades of Grey' failed to get a rise out of his languishing libido."

Ouch. What a crushing way to get dumped. The book is only pretext, of course.

"Gender role reversal" is a very old, tired and lame bit... which we are required to regard as extremely clever and creative every time somebody does it.

I'm shocked! Really! I'm shocked!

Sometimes I wish the world really was going to end on Dec 21, 2012.

At least they aren't publishing his name. Are they?

TWM said...

Pfft, if he had tried the stuff in that book she probably would have sued for divorce because he was perverted.

As harrogate said, the book is a pretext.

Unlike women, men can't fake desire.

I hope he gets a good chunk of alimony out of it.

How come my husband isn't turned-on by the things that turn me and most other middle-aged ladies on, this woman asks?

He must have something wrong with him.

Ann,
Meade has drifted out of the picture on your blog. You are now doing more posts like this. Have you gotten bored with Meade?

Wait, she's making $600,000 a year as a banker? Egad, I'm in the wrong business.

Shouting Thomas said...

Dealing with old spoiled ladies is pretty difficult.

First, their looks are gone, but they don't know it. They keep trying to play on their looks, as if such a thing still existed.

And, they insist on being right. Feminism made that their right. They are always right. Men are always wrong.

During the presidential election, the most spectacularly crazy constant was the old ladies braying endlessly that they want to get an abortion. Their days of having any reason to get an abortion are gone by several decades... but no matter...

Don't deny the old broads their abortions! Or, you're a pig!

Haven't they heard of something called... chemicals?

I'm hearing a story to push book sales.

Now she's going to go on the market thinking there's a younger man out there for her. If she doesn't look so good in her new sexy underwear, she's going to be disappointed. My guess is that she's fat and talks too much.

There's definitely a man out there thinking about her money.

Anybody got her phone number?

I'll reserve comment on the "sexy underwear" till I see a photo of this woman.

Pogo said...

Women here have been reading this and talking about it at work.

But porn is not harassment when women do it.

Maguro said...

I guess SM play is now a mandatory husbandly duty, on a par with taking out the garbage and washing the car. Real sexy.

If a woman forces you to be the dominant partner, can you properly said to be the dominant partner....Also, if you have to work this hard at getting off, do you really want to get it on.

Have you seen her face?
She's got a face that would stop a clock
and with that face I surely won't stop to look her in the eyes.

That's what leather mask are for. ;-)

I guess she wasn't willing to stimulate his prostate.

She wasn't a nursing student.

How so? He is upholding the finest traditions of the British people. Yes, British people today are grotesquely oversexed, but someone has to stick up for tradition and the poor husband in this case can feel some pride that he has not let down the side.

McTriumph said...

I guess the man holding the whip would be gender reversal considering the British tradition of the dominatrix. The wife got it all backwards, he's supposed to be tied down wearing the "sexy underwear". She wearing a leather corset, riding boots and Nazi officer's cap. No wonder he couldn't get it up, it was so un-British.

"Hello dear, this is your husband. I just wanted to let you know that I finally got around to reading that book you were always going on about. And I have to say, you were right. It's great. Anyway, I've taken your advice about trying out some of the sexy bits from the book; I've found a gorgeous young nursing student who lets me tie her up...."

Having done extensive clinical research on female nursing students while attending university, my advise is to always let them be in control. You will not be disappointed.

I pity da fools. Both of 'em.

Honey, does this sexy new underwear make my FAT ass look FAT?

"Why aren't you turned on by me pissing on your face?!? I want a divorce you prude!"
