We opened our New York Times Magazine this morning and were immediately drawn to the featured titled “What Do Women Want?“. A question we’re absolutely clueless about and are pretty thrilled that some serious journalists from the NYT are going to tackle for us. We flip to the feature to find a fairly erotic picture (for the New York Times anyway) and then read the first sentence:
Meredith Chivers is a creator of bonobo pornography.
We don’t know what bonobo means, but at this point we’re thoroughly hooked. So we read on. And that’s when things got ugly. All told, the article weighs in at about 7,500 words. We made it through just over 1,000 words and here’s what we learned: men aren’t lying when they say that they’re turned on by lesbians; women may be lying when they say they aren’t turned on by ape sex. Unless you’ve got some monkey porn laying around, not exactly actionable knowledge (sorry, that awkward tape you made with your college girlfriend doesn’t qualify as monkey porn. And trust us, watching it with your current girlfriend is not a turn-on). If anyone managed to make it through the rest of this article, let us know in the comments if you found anything useful later in the article. Thanks for nothing New York Times.
