Actually that probably is a contributing factor for a few countries, certainly China where the sex ratio is grossly distorted by sex selective abortions against girls as a consequence of the one child policy.

By that I mean that I am not sure that there is actually a significantly higher percentage of sexless men than there were a decade or two ago, or even more.



Hm, well we have a name for it now. I was shocked to learn what an ‘incel’ was. I’d say we certainly have all the right circumstances in society right now for it to have increased dramatically then in times gone by...but you’re right, who can say for sure :hmm:

@SolarCross its always been China. We’ve known about that for the last 30 years at least. They could have a breakaway Kingdom called Inceldom :eek:

Incels are just what we used to call virgins. It's nothing new. Increased awareness and perception of it, is new. They used to call these people nerds, or socially challenged, too.

I agree.
And as I said earlier, the law doesn't make it any easier for those unfortunates..
If he wants to use a prostitute, he can get arrested.
If he want to use a sex robot, the feminists do not agree and are trying to outlaw that.
What should they do ?

Look for second- or third hand wives ?
There must probably be something wrong with them if they are available again. :|


Or go to a poorer country and get a good new one attracted by money and higher status ?
It is frowned upon but still legal.

Prostitution laws have not changed to any significant degree in the lat 30 years.

There were no sex robots 30 years ago.

There was no internet 30 years ago with lots of access to porn.

Awareness of people not getting sex is the only thing that has changed. That, and that a lot of younger people spend more time online relationships than in real relationships.

Being "involuntarily celibate" is simple a term meant to gain sympathy. It's a claim to victim-hood, for people who are not victims.


Here's a good article:
[b]7 Reasons Why Young People Are Having Less Sex[/b]
https://www.psychologytoday.com/intl/bl ... g-less-sex

I think point number 7 in that article may have a lot to do with things. It’s labelled as the ‘rise of individualism’ but that might not be the best way to describe it. Put another way, all those closet lesbians that may have once got married due to societal pressure thus giving a man a sexual partner are now out of the pool :p

Aww.

Well I don’t know the solution. I’d have really thought that if someone wanted to get laid and was able to carry a conversation they would have a goody chance to find someone, at least for some casual sex. Maybe not the stuff or relationships...but at least to let off some steam.

Are we defining this incel thing correctly? Is it sex they want or a significant other? The second is much, much harder to get :hmm:

My friend said it right...

"Incels are younger men in desperate need of the guidance of older males.".

This is correct, they need some lessons is basic self-care and victor (rather than victim) mentality.

Women are not attracted to desperation. Period.

Or the younger people are spending more time gaming or being glued to their cell screens. So many people have instagram and snapchat and I'm thinking, "What is the point?" I think those type of apps are a drain on time. People could be reading a book or going places but instead they are spending so much time in front of some kind of screen. There are some gamers in the office and most of them seem a bit like airheads with the exception of one older guy in his 40s who probably hasn't been gaming for long so he spent most of his life reading and actually learning how to do things.

Unless the woman is the type that tries to mend broken things. I used to think I could help the underdog or befriend the lonely, hurt people. But I learned that it was a moot cause and I probably got bitten at least once, so I gave up. I just have this tendency to want to help people but I know now that sometimes I have to accept that I cannot try to fix things, especially if my help is not requested.
#14999164
Yes, there are women who want to mend broken things, but that never ends well, as it's simply a person doing it primarily out of pity.

Yes, social media should be renamed to anti-social media, which it actually is.
