meat and your sex drive...

Has anyone heard the ridiculous claim that people who don't eat meat have a lower sex drive than those who do eat meat because there's something in meat that revs up the ol' sex drive?  I've heard this one a couple times and it makes me so angry!  >:(  Like people need meat to be "normal" or something.  Argh!

Umm...no, I've heard the exact opposite.  8)

I agree--I imagine eating tons of meat would make you sluggish and, not to be gross, but likely smelly in all areas.

The "meat equals sex" thing was a folk-wisdumb idea from the 70's when it was discovered they were putting hormones in cattle feed. "Word" got out (erroneously of course) that men would absorb the testosterone (if indeed that's what they used) and become much more potent. It was also said that the hormones made the eaters thereof more agressive.

It's kind of the flip side "argument" to the whole "soy makes you gay" thing.

Plus, we all know that vegans taste better.  ;) :D

And the whole sex thing is bogus. I have not noticed any difference in mine since making the switch years ago.

So many of the meat eaters now days are so fat that they can barely manage to have a sex life, so how can it be better than that of a slim, trim, feisty veg*n!  ;D

That's soooo rude, but so funny.

On another note, that sounds like the same old  "feeding raw meat to animals makes them more wild and aggressive" crap that you still hear these days.

ha, rude--true. but even heavier veg*ns, i think, would tend to be in better shape the your average SAD person.

If folks are interested, Carol J. Adams (eco-feminist) has written fairly extensively about sexual associations between the consumption of meat and sex/women/pornography. Her book The Sexual Politics of Meat is easily one of the most fascinating and disturbing books I've ever read.

Here's a link to her website: http://www.triroc.com/caroladams/

her book the pornography of meat is also a good read. i had my students read part of it in gender last semester.

So many people seem to be kind of afraid of vegetarians.  And if an omni has a loved one who becomes a vegetarian, and that omni does not support the vegetarian lifestyle at all, then the omni tends to blame all sorts of things on the fact that meat is not being consumed.  Very sad.

And you can't, little one, because you are under age!   :-*  If you're 18, I apologize.  There was a recent case in the news of a 19 year old man brought up on charges for consensual sex with a 17 year old.  It didn't say whether or not she is mentally handicapped, though.
