Every BJ Begins with De Beers


In this era of financially independent women and easy no fault divorce, it’s time to retire the cultural appendage of johns paying to marry their whores.  Since men give up more when they marry, the women oughta be paying them.

  1. Funny, but cultural expectancies die hard, and in the case of diamond engagement rings, they die VERY hard. Then again, if you want to buy your fiance a diamond engagement ring, have the good sense not to go to a store like Jared’s, Zales, etc… do your homework on price and deal with a place that doesn’t have a ridiculous markup.

  2. I personally dislike this whole diamond thing, but why are you so jaded about everything concerning marriage?

  3. I wouldn’t mind if it was a cultural-religious thing, but it’s not, it’s an invention of one of the most brazen and successful companies of the 20th century – De Beers. Some wiseguy just made it up in his brain one afternoon, and marketed it like hell. I stand in awe of De Beers and the sheer audacity of what they did, but the joke has run its course, diamond wedding rings can bankrupt for no good reason. Half Sigma discusses the De Beers scam here.

    With the money spent on diamonds we deserve foursomes, not blowjobs.

    In most cultures this is what happens, the women’s family provide a dowry. Only in the west, it seems, does the man pay more.

  5. How can one not be jaded about marriage when there may be a probability of this…

    Granted, the report only covers the UK but who wants to be the fool, especially when there is already a 50% chance of failure going in.

    A 20K engagement ring investment with 100% probability of total loss is a poor investment to me. Divorce, lose the 20K…stick it out, the ring is hers, lose 20K. Hmm. where’s the return?

  6. irina – “but why are you so jaded about everything concerning marriage?”

    three reasons:

    1. monogamy
    2. divorce theft
    3. cultural irrelevance

    modern marriage lacks anything remotely resembling an institution that serves even the bare minimum of the man’s interests. plus, it helps that i get plenty of sex outside of marriage, so i don’t need it to secure a (putative) steady supply of poon. i’d tell the average beta with no game to get married and lock it in.

    df – this is why a pre-nup should include a clause requiring the wife to submit to a paternity test with the birth of each child, and in the case that the DNA of the kid doesn’t match the husband’s, he has full rights to leave the marriage immediately free of any financial or custodial obligations.

  7. Who the heck spends $20k on an engagement ring???

    As for BJs, if you marry a woman who gives any indications whatsoever that she’ll stop giving them once you get married, dump her. Those who claim there’s no way to know (or to ensure the BJs continue after you get married), you need to go back to school because you have a lot to learn.

  8. Jay, that is the going rate to incite jealousy among her friends or reduce her mobility significantly from the weight of the rock.

  10. jay – the fiancee of one of my ex’s bought her a $20K ring. his “game” was money. and so was hers.

    df – yes, $20K lets a girl flaunt her higher status (read: prettiness) in front of her girlfriends.

    irina – i love a woman who would kill for me. makes me swoon! 🙂 but hold your fire. i hold no bitterness; only clearheadedness.

  11. Why would someone who’s perfectly content with his own (and possibly the blogosphere’s*) company be anywhere near excited about marriage?

    Kids? Spending too much money? A woman that’s plain crazy sometimes? It’s just difficult to actually find someone you can love, and then learn to love and compromise for, and even more rarely for them to return the favour in full and take your needs/wants into account.

    I know what you mean, Irina. I remember the same killer instinct overtaking me when I came across a few other blogs. Some guys are embittered, some are ‘clear-headed’. Don’t think I’d kill for roissy even if he was embittered somewhere deep inside, ’cause he’s having too much fun as he is.

    *Hehe, sometimes I just use these expressions to snub Maddox. Even though, realistically, he would not actually see this or be irritated. But I think of him every time I do it:

  12. Few and far between are the roissy’s of this world. That’s not flattery, it’s just a fact. Most are betas with no game. Ergo marriage.

  13. Gahh. Net blogs are par excellence the home of geeks. I’m sure Roissy does fine (he can’t be a bigger geek than me, and I get a couple of different attractive g-friends a year), but the chances that he’s truly, ummm, “alpha” (to use another term that’s a dead geek giveaway) are low.

    Most men marry because it’s tiring to go from woman to woman for years on end and eventually you want to settle down and relax with someone you really enjoy. Truly attractive men often marry comparatively young (by 30, say) because they’ve already bedded dozens or even hundreds of beauties by then. Plus they’re confident that in a pinch they can keep getting a bit on the side when they’re married. It’s extremely rare that a man won’t marry by around 45, as your energy flags and you get sick of the bullshit.

  14. The assumption is that marriage actually has sexual activity. From what I’ve seen, most marriages are sexless unions for raising children, and in the long run, it’s probably cheaper to employ a prostitute to meet your sexual needs, a maid for your cleaning, and pay increased taxes for welfare to single mothers than to get married. In the long term, it’s best to get dedicated people to handle those specific tasks than to give that task to a female who may be poorly equipped at one or all tasks.

  15. What we need is the end of the De Beers scam that is diamonds, and the return of that great western cultural phenomenon – the mistress. A man needs to choose a wife and, as the great playboy Taki Theodoracopulos says, ‘place her on a pedestal’. That is – treat her with infinite respect, and especially – never divorce her for a younger model.

    The decline of the mistress has, paradoxically, left many older women cougars, as men, unable to acquire a mistress due to the EXTREME monogamy that has become dominant in western culture, must instead get rid of their wife entirely. Taki’s wife, an Austrian Princess, allows him to screw around, because she knows he places her above all the young things.

  16. I second MQ’s point. Roissy, as much as I enjoy his blog, comes across as a young guy, probably around 25, who doesn’t yet know that being 35 feels very different than being in one’s early 20s.

  19. You forget: young AND hot. I’m sure roissy’s game does turn a couple of you guys on. Just admit it. Just like the tingle when you watched 300. Exactly.

    David, that line seems straight out of Two and a Half Men. A whole episode was based on how Jake (the kid) repeated that line to a Woman’s Support Group… ah, hilarious. Surely you guys watch that show. Or are you too busy working out/having sex/earning money/on the internet?

    Maybe one of you needs to make a post on how to find a good but cheap, and still legal cleaner. What I don’t understand is if you’re content enough with the dump you have then why do you want it cleaner if a woman’s around? Do you automatically lose your independence when she’s around?

  22. Why do pussies have hair ? To hide the hook. 95% of married women do not give head. The other 5% lie. Rich. Poor. Middle. Fat. Skinny. Pretty. Average. It does not matter. Why do you think the wedding music sounds like ‘Dumb dumb dumb dumb…..dumb dumb dumb dumb…..’
    I am so glad I got a thousand beaners before I walked the plank. Everything changed during the damn honeymoon. I should have run like I was on fire. Stupid me. You young guys out there—MAKE SURE SHE guarantees BJ’s after the wedding day—OR ELSE. My beef is only with ladies that did before, but not after. If you got none before marriage, you poor sap, you’re screwed. Wont happen to you ? HaHaHa…Stand by for a million regrets.
