    much more likely to actually happen & be adhered to among more mature people, rather than younger, less experienced people who might brush it off.  I think the popularity of the book (which I've not read) among young women does expose them to that important concept; my issue is more with what they value in relationship, because the tendency in women to value (being dominated by) an aggressive man is counter to what the world now needs generally, which is greater female empowerment & less male aggression.  My contention is that the extent to which sexual culture continues to reward & praise male aggression is the extent to which global progress is slowed across the board.  So, while not judging BDSM play, my hope is that aggressive male tendencies be overall denied genetic transmission as much as possible.  This runs counter to evolutionary history, which is why it will require a deliberate effort to shift successfully.

    (BTW: fellow-geek props to your sig, although it's probably more like 2d10+4).  

    It's time to start letting sleeping dinosaurs lie, lest we join them in extinction by our consumption of them.
