The ciallopy crashed to the ground

Ciallopy, a derivative of calliope, is a new word I defined as, “the increasing weight of data showing the number of men needing erectile dysfunction medication”

I had a seemingly unrelated set of experiences over the past few days that led me to coin that term and its definition.

I was attending a legal seminar put on by a female contract attorney. The seminar was outstanding, the woman’s delivery was as engaging as the topic could possibly be made. The part of my brain that stays in manosphere mode took note of some things, however, that began the process of coinage.

Lets just say that this woman had had some work done. This is not a reference to an augmentation, though that was likely present. It was that the woman was over 60 and had the Joan Rivers thing going on with the nose and face. It was obvious that the beauty that had faded was really something to behold at one time (79 year old that is “hot” anyone?), but Spackle will not cover earthquake damage. She referred pleasantly to her husband, which was a plus. But she made it clear she is a work above all else person.

Store that.

Populating the class was a cross section of corporate procurement professionals, mostly female. The majority were in their forties. There was not one, NOT ONE, who could by any metric be called attractive. According to what Deti often says, there had to be some women in that room that men would ultimately settle for sexually. I looked again. Nope. Must be a statistical outlier.

Store that.

We read about men who experience sexual denial regularly. We read that the totality of the Christian counseling regime comes down on these men telling them they must do more, serve more, love more, be more romantic, and then the slow cooker will finally reach temperature.

Store that.

Those of us who do not regularly experience denial, HAVE experienced it. Its a rare man who has literally never been shut down sexually by his wife. And that’s OK. Sometimes it is of course OK. But there is an iteration of this that is essential to consider, and that is when a wife makes the husband feel as if, yes, sexual access is there, but it not really on the very top of the list. In fact, if you could just wait until the trash is out, the dogs are walked, the this and the that are done, then she will, ho hum, come deal with that other task. And that guy then “gets sex”, but he does not get what he wanted, which is to be wanted.

Finally, I was watching TV and the Cialis commercial came on. The woman gives the guy the eye, they dance in the kitchen (has anyone ever spontaneously started slow dancing in a kitchen to no music in mid day?), and what….yep…they go sit in bath tubs on the hill. No, that’s not right. They go have sex. Sex that she wanted and signaled that she wanted.

That guy needs ED meds? Sorry, no sale.

But the guys who are in one or more of the scenarios I listed above? The guy who has a huge wife? The one with the surgically stretched wife-like creature? Or the one whose wife willingly puts up with sex like a task? Most of these guys want to be faithful and they are faithful. Then they finally get in the mood (which may require the meds to even do depending on what the wife looks like) and the wife makes the man feel like the highlight of his day will find a middling place on her to do list. If that guy allows his mind to dwell there, he could need pharma help doing what he naturally wants and needs to do.

Oh, the final experience was, I was listening to Manfred Mann.

This is a tragedy. The Ciallopy has crashed to the ground.

    Seriously? Wow. I’m gonna ask my husband about this. He can no doubt name more than a few 40 (even 50) year old women he considers at least somewhat attractive, and he’s a man with high standards. He’s always had them because he’s handsome. That’s not just my wife goggles talking.

    That must have been some presentation you were at. Is it your industry or something? What gives?

    Nice way to catalog the thoughts and prepare the reader for the pièce de résistance.

    I’ll store this, as I may have something more to add later.

  2. Well yea, I can name a few in their 40s and 50s as well. Chief among them, the finest of fine Mrs. Empathologism who seems to be made of a substance that always returns to its original shape after experiencing extreme distortions like childbirth. No kidding, and no Joan Rivers.

    No, its not my industry. These came from across the spectrum, and across the nation. They were purchasing people, industry was not in common. Heck, one woman (who was in her 30s Im guessing) even worked for HerbaLife (Of “lose weight now, ask me how” fame….I didn’t even realize that was a real company with people in offices.) I am not in the nutritional supplement multi level marketing biz

  3. I agree most men need Viagra because the lady they are trying to bang. Any chick over 40 & worth chasing is a rare, rare bird

  4. Empath:
    “To offer incentives for men and women to take baths.”

    LOL—from what I’ve observed, men who bathe on a regular basis don’t need Cialis—they get all the sex they can handle and not from aging Cougars either! LOL

  5. I was referring to sexy hot, Eric. Just attractive enough to keep one’s husband interested.

  6. I admit that I take some exception to the oft seeming manosphere theme that only women 30 and under can be super hot. I have to imagine that its very young men saying that, or, divorced middle aged men expressing a preference.

    Its ridiculous when that women said she knew a 79 year old women that is hot….that’s gaggle of giggler speak, but its not just my wife, I see very attractive middle aged women all the time. Sure, the odds decrease, the % drops, but they are not some off the wall anomaly either. Yes, I know hot 40-50 year olds.

  7. Empath & Elspeth:
    I think there’s two sides to that issue. Granted, a woman who marries young and in her prime can compensate somewhat for her declining sexual market value with experience. It’s just a matter of mathematics that a reasonably attractive middle-aged woman with 20-30 years of experience sexually pleasing one man is going to have an inside advantage over a younger rival. But it doesn’t work with single/divorced Cougars like that. They are no match for the younger ones, no matter how hard they try to fool themselves.
