Do guys view women just as sexual objects?

I've come across a couple of posts on here where guys are like all what women are good for is sex. Most guys, on seeing a girl, they start imagining themselves having sex with her. So, do you guys think women are only good for sex?

  • Men are capable of having multiple perspectives at the same time.

    The most base or primal nature of a man does objectify you. You shouldn't be afraid of this or overly-cynical. Assuming the man is heterosexual, he will at times mentally objectify women. But only the most primitive Neanderthal feels no shame for having these thoughts. Good men are consciously trying to avoid objectifying women they meet, both in their thoughts and actions, because they don't want the primal nature to be all that controls them.

    The next perspective is empathy. All human beings, whether male or female, are capable of empathy unless they're sociopaths. Empathy comes from understanding how the other person feels. You can have empathy for a total stranger, but you're more likely to have more empathy for someone you're close to, like a family member or friend. As such, as a man gets to know a woman over time, his empathy for her will grow, and he'll be caring about her in ways that have nothing to do with sex. Assuming he wants to care about her.

    And then there's the man's intellect, his rationality, what he reasons he's looking for in his life and the decisions that causes him to make. A few misguided men may have rationalized based upon their past experiences that women are only good for sex, but that doesn't mean that the majority think that way. Outside of our ability to feel and our most basic sexual desires, we are responsible for our actions and how we treat others because we can reason about right and wrong. A good man is looking for a healthy relationship, not a blow-up doll.

    Psychologists will refer to these three perspectives as the id, the ego and the superego.

    Take each of those perspectives, and you can blend them together like watercolors to form a picture of what a man's fantasy is. The picture is much more complex than the individual components and it is different for every man. Then there's that final ingredient called "love", and who knows exactly what that is, because it seems to come when the picture is complete but we don't know what makes it happen.

  • Not all guys feel women as sexual objects.

    The guys that get the most "press" and "attention" view women as sexual objects.

    --------

    Similar to with the news; negativity gets more attention and gets more widespread, because people on average see positivity as unexciting.

    There are PLENTY of guys who appreciate women as the people they are...but they don't get talked about.

    But people always complain about the NEGATIVE things they see, observe, and are involved with.

    How often do you chat with a female gal pal about all the nice sweet men you've seen and encountered?

    Now...how often do you chat with your female gal pals about the a**hole jerky creepy men you encounter?

    Exactly.

    Prolly not

  • I'm going to make this simple.

    Some women are in fact good for nothing but sex. Others are good for much more than that, and those are the girls we try and date.

    Let's but it this way, if you are a drama queen, emotional mess, bitch, nagger, annoying, boring, mean, etc. we're going to say to ourselves. This girl is a piece of work and only good for sex. On the other hand if we do meet a girl who is really cool, down to earth, drama free, kind, doesn't bitch about everything, isn't annoying, and is fun to be around, then we'll be interested in more than just sex with her.

    As I always say, even the players will settle down for the right girl, its just that those types of girls are very few and far between these days.

    • i disagree completely. plenty of guys these days simply just do not want a girlfriend, when they find a girl isn't like that, they just leave her and move on, they don;t try and date her

    • There are guys like that, but those guys make up about 5% of the population and they're just douche bags. But again, even those guys can change for the right girl. A guy I know who is a massive player and even says he doesn't date, recently met a girl that he admitted was the first girl he actually wanted to date because she was that awesome. To be perfectly honest, I feel women are becoming harder to deal with hence, more guys are just throwing in the towel on dating.

    • But to use your logic, the girls who don't behave properly will also one day meet a guy who is right them for them. It is NOT OK to use someone for sex, regardless of how that person treats you or makes you feel. Just as its not okay to be a bitch, regardless of whether you think the person deserves it.

    • Show All
  • I've never met anyone who's seen women like a sexual object, not really. Some guys TALK that way, but the objectification of women, in my view, is entirely fictional and a misunderstanding of the agriculture of the sexual psyche. The only person I know who's been accused of objectifying women is ME! And that's because I offer 'my girls' to my friends or family, LOOOLLLLL. But that's only because I want to *let the good times roll*, man.

  • some guys do, it's true. mostly, though, they do respect women. If a guy is asking you to do things that are humiliating, that's a good sign he doesn't respect you. If his ONLY interest is sex, that's another.

  • Definitely not. Some guys do of course, but they're a minority.

  • No. But some guys probably do but I'd put it at 10% or less.

    Most of us love and respect the opposite gender for all of their beauty -but that doesn't' mean we dont' have hormones that generally encourage us to chase down women that excite us.

  • Well I think that it is true for the majority of women, feminism destroyed femininity turned women into our competitors instead of our partners and by default all they had left to offeis sex

  • No not at all

  • No more than women view men as success objects.

    • Great answer

  • No. We love girls, when we talk with them, when we dance with them, love them, they are our second half. Are no sex objects. Of course I love to make love with a girl. It is so natural and exciting.

  • Maybe some guys do. I used to when younger but not anymore

  • Not all of them

  • "I've come across a couple of posts on here where guys are like all what women are good for is sex."

    Yeah, but those guys are losers.

    "Most guys, on seeing a girl, they start imagining themselves having sex with her. "

    Well, that's probably true, yeah. But that doesn't mean that they think she's *only* good for sex. Big difference.
