By Paul Mason and Matthew YglesiasThe man who would never say yes to an orgasm, at least not on his own terms.
That’s the premise of a new book by journalist and writer Michael Oreskes, titled The Man That Would Never Have An Ejaculation: A History of How The Modern Male Became A Man Who Could Not Touch An Erosion.
Oreske’s book has been described as a “men’s rights manifesto” by some, a “Men’s Rights Manifesto” by others.
Otske, who has a PhD in psychology from Johns Hopkins University and a BA in philosophy from Georgetown University, spent 15 years as a journalist and columnist before joining the New York Times and launching his own blog.
He writes in his book that men were “never expected to become a man,” and that when they did, they did so “with a sense of entitlement” that has persisted.
He says that in an age when “many men are living in an almost virtual world of sexual and physical intimacy,” men are afraid of what the consequences could be if they don’t “get what they want.”
Oreskes says men have been given so much “privilege” that they can now do “what they never had to do before.”
He notes that the men’s movement, which emerged in the 1970s, “was premised on the idea that men would get what they wanted,” but that has not been the case.
Oreske says that “it’s a bit like a man in a coma,” when he says that men have “no rights, no protections, no sense of ownership.
And that’s how the whole culture of masculinity has developed.”
Otske points to the “male privilege” that men receive in the workplace, but he also talks about “the lack of female privilege” and the “privileges” women have to offer that men don’t.
He also talks in the book about “a kind of sexual entitlement” and “the sexualized sexualization of women’s bodies.”
In his book, Oreskses describes men who have “never had an orgasm” as “victims” of the patriarchy, who were “subjected to gender-based violence, sexual harassment, sexual assault, sexual abuse, and abuse of power.”
He writes that the male privilege “has been an incredibly difficult subject to talk about because the social context of male sexuality is so hostile to the idea of female sexuality.”
The author says that the “men of today” who “feel that they are not entitled to a sexual experience” are often the ones “who suffer the consequences.”
Oreskees says that because men don “feel entitled to sexual pleasure” from “an orgasm” they don, too, “are subject to sexual harassment and sexual assault.”
Outskes says that as a result of this, many men are “feeling isolated, isolated from their friends and their families and being isolated from other men.”
He says that for many men, the “real problem is that they don [feel] they are undervalued, they are perceived as inferior, they aren’t appreciated or understood as human beings.”
The problem for many of the men in Oreski’s book is that “most of the time they aren´t.”
The book is divided into chapters that explore different aspects of the male psyche, from “manhood myths” to “male guilt” and even to “the shame and shame about a sexual desire that many men experience.”
It’s a book that also examines the cultural context of “masculinity” in the US, but one that deals with “the cultural ills of masculinity.”
Otskes calls the “patriarchy” and other “male entitlement” myths “one of the biggest myths of masculinity” and claims that they have a “deep psychological undercurrent” that is “being reproduced in our culture.”
He claims that while it is “possible to be a man who does not experience an orgasm,” the problem is “much harder” for men.
“It is easier for a man to say, ‘I don’t have a desire for sexual pleasure, but I can do things that are more satisfying.'”
He says men are often “stuck in the role of victim.”
Ourskes writes: Men who are sexually frustrated or insecure are likely to be seen as “toxic” and suffer from “unacceptably low self-esteem and lack of respect.”
He also says that male victims are often blamed for sexual assault because of “misogynistic stereotypes.”
Oleskes says many men feel “trapped” in a “male-centered, man-hating society.”
In the book, he says: Male sexuality is often treated as an issue of gender, and as such it is a topic that “has historically been used to justify violence against women, racial violence, and the oppression of Indigenous peoples and women of color.”
