I tell men and women that, of all the women who post their opinions about how men think, you, Dr. Laura, are light years ahead of your competition. I came across an old blog of yours recently, and this excerpt is a clear example of that:
"...this is the measure that men have of how much we love them -- whether we're willing to accept them (literally) into our bodies, whether we're willing to open up to them -- this is how men register that their woman loves them."
You would think that this is an easy enough concept to grasp, but I am constantly amazed at how few women truly understand this. If you tell a wife this, often you get disbelief, and sometimes even scorn, that her man could think this way!
For men, sex IS how they feel accepted and loved, and conversely, when a woman consistently rejects a man sexually, she is telling him she doesn't love him. This flipside seems to be equally confusing for women to understand.
You are exactly right, Dr Laura...and you rock!
