In Response To “10 Reasons You Don’t Get Laid”

This is one of the best blogs on this subject I’ve ever read. The blogger does not judge nor set a “fire and brimstone” standard that is based purely on a concept of right and wrong.

For the sake of this blog I’ll restrain from speaking my frustrations regarding the article (they are many) as to avoid any personal attacks on the author. Instead I’d like to challenge the perspective of this article as well as that of culture by suggesting that perhaps there are other reasons men out there aren’t “getting laid”.
