Is it true that women think sexuality is not fair? My brother's girlfriend said she thinks that women got the raw deal where sensitivity and drive are concerned. Can she ACTUALLY think that? I can't see why women think it's so unfair when they obviously have so much control over whether or not there is even going to BE any sex! I say that WOMEN make every rule and we have to follow them like dogs! Get me out of this one!

Interesting analogy. In fact, there is a study on tumescence that points to exactly that sort of thing. The theory goes that every man and woman is sexually cyclical in nature, and that their behaviors run in fairly predictable patterns. It also brings forth the idea that men are highly sensitive to the woman's ebb and flow of desire on an instinctive level. Much like poor Old Yeller, they just can't help themselves and tend to preen, prance, and otherwise do anything possible to garner the attention of the woman at her peak. Does this give the woman the upper hand? Who's to say?
I think you are arguing apples and oranges. The point she is making, if I'm getting this right, is that men can get the motor runnin' much more quickly than women. In fact, 5 times more quickly. On a statistical basis, she's right. Your argument seems to lie in the courting phase, wherein the woman, it would seem, does have a great deal of control on an emotional and even biological level. She can wait. By golly, as all of us know, she can wait until the cows come home before she has to act on an intimate impulse. There is not a single guy out there who doesn't know that.
While men face performance pressure and the inevitable challenge of timing, women have to hyper focus to bring about the Big Bang. The Moment, if you will. This takes a lot of time and mental preparation. Perhaps the "rules" you reference are a means of keeping that focus. In any event, I think you lost the argument. If your dispute is simply over who gets the better deal in the sack, from a time mental effort perspective, you lost the bet. Physically speaking, it's easier for men to get there than women, and yes, men ARE more physically sensitive in those areas.
As to whether or not most women think of sexuality as unfair? A blanket statement I'm sure. (If you'll pardon the inference.)

Dear Guy: Do I have to act like I love foreplay? I have never been a very foreplay oriented person, and I'm telling you there's gotta be a woman out there who likes this "business" just for the "business" end of it alone. Could you call your readers out and take a poll?
OF COURSE there are women who are in it for that very reason. Work some overtime, spend a few bucks, and she's all yours.
I have a theory that women think that seeing men eating is sexy. That's why they always want to cook for us. Ya' think? -Chubs
Wouldn't that be a little slice of heaven?
