Oz Conservative brings the following Spearhead comment to our attention
Justa thought, guys keep talking about male pill how about libido suppressant? Are there any drugs out there that will suppress a man’s libido so much he would be a functional eunuch (oxymoron i know)?
Imagine never even thinking about sex, means you can without effort treat every hot chick without that mild inner bias to her goodlooks. Possible with game but this time, you wont be feinging dis-interest, with the utlimate aim of getting in her pants.
You would genuinely not be interested in chicks. We might be surprised how many guys would actually go on such pills if they were available
The context of this quote was a discussion over an absurd proposal that men should separate themselves from women until the latter get over their feminist entitlement complexes. However, I think the appeal of such a pill would be far larger than “confirmed old bachelors” like Henry Higgins.
In an alternate universe, where the hegemonic culture was Christian rather than libertine, I’ll bet such a pill would already exist. Think about the good, chaste Christian boys who have to wait a decade or so into their sexual maturity before they’re able to raise a family and can responsibly marry. Consider married couples who want to put a little space between their children. My wife and I have a newborn now, and she’s taking up all of our energy. It would be very hard if my wife were to get pregnant again just now. The upshot is that I’m looking at about a year of celibacy. So far, I’m a couple months in, and a pill to take away sexual cravings would indeed make my life more comfortable.
The dilemma is this: if a man had sex every time he wanted to, the population would explode beyond our means of support. Therefore, we can either suppress female fertility or suppress male appetite or demand a good deal of male self-control. The elite hedonistic culture has jumped on the first solution. The Catholic Church has nothing to offer but the third. Why doesn’t somebody look into the second? Honestly, I do think that our wives would prefer that we desired them less, rather than that they should chemically alter themselves to make themselves barren. Is what I’m suggesting just a technical fix to a moral problem? Don’t men gain virtue through continence? Perhaps. But the same sorts of things might be said about Tylenol. Isn’t enduring a headache an opportunity to cultivate patience? Yes, but that doesn’t mean we need to seek out such opportunities.
