To reiterate, if a person wants physical pleasure, masturbation plus drugs is the way to go. Only the crudest mental retards are at this level. Normal humans are socialized during adolescence to feel uncomfortable living in complete solitude and masturbating.
Because women are so prone to "attention whoring", it's next to impossible to learn anything from reading their gibberish, but we can try. If a woman gets physical pleasure from having her buttocks hit, why not just collapse onto a hard chair repeatedly, versus being spanked by a man? Answer: because physical pleasure is a minor factor compared to social factors.
Better evidence of the overriding importance of social factors is provided by men. For example, MGTOW/incel types constantly predict great social changes in the USA if prostitution is legalized or sex doll technology improves, etc. But in fact prostitution has long been legal in England, parts of Australia and Canada, Spain, Germany, parts of the USA state of Nevada, etc, and this has changed nothing with regards to relationships between normal men and women. Sheep vaginas have been comparable to human vaginas for thousands of years, long before anyone thought of sex dolls, but has there ever been a society where normal men routinely had sex with sheep to avoid the costs of relationships with women? If sheep can't substitute for women, then neither can sex dolls. Prostitution, sheep and sex dolls all fail to provide the vital social factor.
Why are MGTOW/incels so oblivious to this blindingly obvious truth? Answer: because these MGTOWs/Incels are not actually bothered by their lack of sex with women, but rather lack of social factors. In particular, lack of social status. People in general are more aware nowadays than in previous generations of their social status, because of mass communications technology. In the case of men, sexual access to pretty young women has always been a prerogative of high status males, and for various reasons, that access is nowadays being increasingly concentrated in the hands of the elite males, hence the MGTOW/incel complaints.
No amount of legalized prostitution or better sex dolls can help with the angst of a bottom status man (or woman) who resents being bottom status. He/she is going to have to learn to stay away from social media and other technologies that simultaneously make such individuals aware of their low status and make them yearn to be high status. Rather they need to put all their efforts into learning how to be happy with whatever is the highest status they can reasonably achieve, which may be very low in the hierarchy in some cases. For every top 1%, there has to be a bottom 1%, by the laws of simple arithmetic.
Anyway, main point to remember is that probably no one here in this forum is primarily motivated by physical pleasure with regards to sex (exceptions, if any, have surely already discovered the masturbation/drugs path). Sex among humans is almost exclusively about social factors. (Incidentally, I may have been misleading by using social status interchangeably with social factors. Status is the chief social factor, but not the only one. But I'm not going to write a carefully edited book on this topic here to fully clarify things, especially since this journal is intended to be mostly about personal finance, not sociology/psychology.) Typically, we have all been socialized such that we can only be happy when in a "suitable" relationship with a "suitable" mate. Suitable means different things to different people. In particular, suitable relationship may not involve sexually activity for some people.. As previously noted, my peer group is unattached older male drifter types, hence my concept of suitable relationship/mate is quite different than if my peer group were married and still employed homeowners with children and grandchildren, let's say.
Also, to return to personal finance. Though I am proud of my market timing operations in March, as discussed above, I hope everyone understands that I am well aware of the dangers of the bubblicious market we are in now. That awareness should be clear from reading between the lines of my comments about avoiding tech stocks and only buying stocks (and silver back when it was cheaper) that seemed good value. Because there is no alternative (TINA®) I am sticking with those stocks for now, but might build back up a 30% cash cushion at some point if the market continues rising. Need to wait until April of this year to get long term capital gains rate on taxable account, however.
