Em & Lo's Wise Guys: A man's real preferences

Advice from three of our guy friends. This week they answer the following: "If guys had to choose between only intercourse or only ----- s for the rest of their life, which do you think most guys would choose?"

Straight Single Guy (L.A. Chris): I think most guys would choose ----- s, but they really should be choosing intercourse. BJs are the best thing to happen to sex since sliced bread, but with added perks (let's just say it's like taking your car in for an oil change and getting a free car wash). Most men don't get as many ----- s in their daily routine as they'd like, so the prospect of guaranteed hummers for life is a dream come true. But it's a devil's bargain. ----- s are awesome, but they're unsubstantial -- mere icing on the cake. And a man can't feel truly satisfied on a diet of sugar frosting alone. At some point he's going to want to connect meaningfully with his partner. And by the time he gets to be 30 or 40 he may even want to have a baby. (Yes, men have biological clocks too. Ours are not as prominent as women's, they're more like pocket watches, but we have them.)

Straight Married Guy (Fred): I think most guys would struggle with this one, but then decide that intercourse would be the better choice. There are more variations of intercourse, for one thing. There's more skin contact which is always nice. Giving her pleasure at the same time is a big turn on. The fact that intercourse is active rather than passive makes it a more likely choice for guys. We like to do stuff... like aggressive pelvic thrusting.

More...Gay Commited Guy (Terence): Intercourse is the winner -- by a technicality. Maybe it's just me, but I'm guaranteed a climax with intercourse, whereas ----- s end happily about half the time. And if I'm drunk, the odds are even lower. It's a Sophie's choice I hope I never have to make.

Our "wise guys" are a rotating group of contributors, some of whom wish to remain anonymous and some of whom like the attention. This week they're all a little shy.
