Why Horny Men Sometimes Look Like The Devil, And Bad Boys Are Muddy Carpet Tracks




Why do I villainize men for wanting sex?

I mean- It's a natural desire, and I want it just as much as they do. And I think I'd be lying if the idea of variety didn't appeal as well- but for some reason, it just makes me so uneasy.

Being a woman is kind of like having this gorgeous house,



.....And all the guy has to do is knock on the door. He could come in with muddy feet, ruin your furniture, kick your cat, and then walk right back out the door. Sure it's a little scary for him- walking inside the house- not knowing what kind of junk he's going to run into or how messy the house (you) really is.

But it's nothing compared to the great risk that the female takes. She has been building and developing this house for a long time. Or maybe not, perhaps her house is not ready, or vandals disrupted the building process.

That's what sex is like for a woman. The house (a body) is supposed to be a very special safe place- meant for only the finest of house guests.

Which is why we MUST be careful with who we let to come in that door.
Where is the line that must be drawn? Opening up a tiny window of temptation- can turn into opening the garage door to disaster.

It's not as easy for women. If someone comes over to visit your house- it's a big deal- it's even worse if they leave a mess.
You can't just pretend like the muddy tracks all over your floor didn't happen- there's always constant reminders left behind after each guest departs. There's dirty handprints on the walls of your mind.


There's no doubt though, that the men make our houses warmer. They turn on the electricity, make us feel alive. Make the house feel complete. When they leave, everything shuts back down. We chase the men out the door, neglecting our home, ignoring our old, true desires.

When we finally do come back to our sad, empty house- it can be depressing, moving on with life can be difficult.

But there IS hope!! and where does God play into this? In my mind, he is like the quiet, fuzzy radio that keeps you company in your home. Giving you warnings, telling you stories, sharing advice, always there, always playing (although sometimes the reception is kind of bad).


When the guy enters the house, sometimes we shut off the radio. Which in turn shuts off the warnings that God may be trying to tell us.

Which is why it is so important that your man WANTS TO HEAR THE RADIO TOO! You want someone who will enjoy God as much as you do- someone who will appreciate the warnings, listen to the advice, and enjoy the stories as much as you do.

Does that make sense? When two people are actively listening to God AND connecting with each other, it makes for the richest possible life experience.

But back to the original point, I think I villainize men for wanting sex because of how easy it appears to be for them. I envy it. They are not the ones having their "houses" destroyed in the same way.

They are able to move on to other homes- with other amenities.

Some men will eventually settle at the "nicest" house they find, but many will not. Many will be wondering what lies behind the doors of all the other houses in the world. Until they can truly tune into "God" radio, they will always get bored with an individual woman and move on.
