Fitness is the Base of My Game

Fitness is the Base of My Game

Every Halloween in Tokyo for the past three years, I’ve dressed up as a lifeguard complete with super short shorts, aviator sunglasses, no shirt, and my nose painted white. You may call me unimaginative, but I’m a cheap bastard from a warm climate and I’ll take every chance I can get to bask in attention while I stroll around in public with as little clothing as socially acceptable. Since most dudes don’t have the nuts to stroll around a party semi-nude, the costume has been a hit wherever I went, year after year. The first two years I donned my trusty lifeguard costume, back when I had the body of an asexual Asian teenager, I received about the same amount of attention from gay dudes as I did from women. The only thing was it was obvious that only the gay dudes wanted to bang my little Asian bottom. I quickly realized that most of the chicks just wanted to take a picture of the funny looking dude in the red shorts so they could post it on Facebook when they ran away before I could ask, “S-s-so what’s your name?” Back in those days of no-game hell, when I thanked my lucky stars when a girl let me park my beef bus in her tuna garage, I figured putting up with the odd sexual advance from a man was better than being completely invisible to women. Also, it gets really hot and uncomfortable when you’re dancing to electro club jams in a polyester Pikachu suit. Last Halloween was different. I had been practicing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu heavily for about two years, and an interest in improving my performance caused me to optimize my diet. I had also recently begun barbell training to improve my explosive strength. I arrived at that year’s costume party with broad grappler’s shoulders and a narrow waist. Even though I weighed a mere 132 lbs at the time, the difference in reaction was stark. I felt hands running across my shoulders after I posed with slutty nurses for a picture. Apropos of nothing, a tart in cat ears and a mini-skirt pressed her body against mine and said, “Meow!” One...

Sexual Strategy is Amoral

Sexual Strategy is Amoral

Jul 9, 2013

Sexual strategy is amoral. You might stick to your values, but those who have sex .. have sex. It’s best illustrated through our ancestors. The idea was that whether or not we like the methods used- whoever procreated made children, and those who didn’t.. didn’t. Your understanding of how morality works is a bit flawed here. You see, there is no universal morality. There is nothing in the universe applying any law other than those of physics. The rest is abstraction. Morality is not black and white. Let’s look at stealing for instance. If I steal a loaf of bread, we would normally consider that wrong. But what if I were a starving child on the street and I have no other way of surviving? If I stole that bread and ate it to survive the night, was this right? Is it a grey area? People make value judgements every day to determine what the best survival strategy is, (and to maximize happiness if basic needs are met). Most people realized very early on that one good survival strategy was to not be murdered. Sounds pretty basic. So a social contract was developed. I won’t murder you if you don’t murder me! But if somebody invades our group, we can kill them! So we can see that even killing is not right or wrong in a black and white sense. Murder, stealing, rape, these were all concepts that most people entering into the social contract said, I don’t want these things, my best strategy is to cooperate, therefore I should not do them. And the basic framework of morality was built. Killing Nazis? Moral. Killing your neighbor? Immoral. A simple code to pass on the social contract that enables society and really helped us as a species! I think you and I agree when I say that we’ve both signed on to this concept. I don’t want to be murdered, and I willingly take part in a social contract of not murdering. Most people have this concept built in evolutionarily- it’s called empathy! Empathy helped groups to survive. Empathy follows this model, as most felt righteous or indifferent towards the killing of enemies and food. So, yes, there...
