The rotten fruit of sexual liberation continues to fall. As revealed in The Independent, almost half of women experience post-coital dysphoria after having sex:
In a paper published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine this week, 46 per cent of female university students reported PCD symptoms at least once in their lifetime.
Studies have shown that 10 per cent of women experience what is known as “post-sex blues”, or “post-coital dysphoria” following intercourse; a condition characterised by tearfulness, anxiety, agitation, a sense of melancholy or depression, or aggression.
Why might this be happening? Doubt: women are not experiencing the comfort of knowing they are with the person they should be with as part of being on a path to the good life. Instead, they are settling for “Mr. Right Now” in a series of sexual partners who have no obligation to them, and so there is a lingering sense of having been played.
They are correct, of course. Fidelity leads to long-term rewards including stability and a sense of being on the right path. On the other hand, promiscuity creates doubt about the worth of the woman because she is offering herself up like a sacrifice in the hopes that someone will adopt her like a lost dog and take her to a forever home.
On the other hand, chastity leads to greater pleasure by delivering people into happy marriages and then families, which as anyone who has watched a romantic comedy can tell you, is what most of the audience wants. It is the fairy tale ending that makes life seem worth living.
The West circles the drain for many reasons, but the primary one is individualism, or the idea that the whims and intent of the individual are more important than consequences in reality. This leads to misery because people know — deep down, inside — that the only happiness can be found in being in a situation where they are valued without question, and the rotating chain of sexual partners fails to deliver that.
