French Femmes Fond Of Le Fucking

Illustration for article titled French Femmes Fond Of Le Fucking

A new study has found that French women are "increasingly assertive" in their sexual habits. Which basically means they're sleeping around more: In 1970, 68% claimed to have had only one partner, In 1992, 43% made that claim; in 2006 the number had dropped to 34%. A paper called Le Nouvel Observateur said of the findings: "The good old dichotomy (male predators, females patiently awaiting the warrior's return in front of the cave entrance) is in big trouble." Let's hope so! Progress from Cro-Mag days is a good thing, right? In any case, the "female sexual emancipation" is a hot topic in France right now, thanks to Ms. Carla Bruni. Last year, she told French paper Le Figaro: "I am a tamer [of men], a cat, an Italian. I am faithful... to myself. I am monogamous from time to time but I prefer polygamy and polyandry." Now she's married to the president. Quelle horror!

But at the same time, one in five young Frenchmen reported "no interest in sexuality." Older ladies? (Maybe the moms of those guys?) They're totally into indoor sports: 9 out of 10 women over 50 are sexually active today, compared to just 50% cent of that age group in 1970.

Of course, men are still sleeping with more women (guys between 30 and 49 reported a "lifetime sexual partner" average of 12; women in the same age group reported an average of 5). So this whole "sexual predator" thing is just rabble-rousing paranoia-inducing bullshit; like horny French women are going attack les garçons and force them to have sex? French guys are sleeping with double the number of people, so clearly they're enjoying the new "liberation." As for the numbers: Just give les femmes some time, they'll catch up.

@ineffable.me: Yeah. The boy's got skills. I'm way too much of a nympho to ever marry someone who was bad in bed.

@TwiceShy: The woman is a nutjob. I think a lot of it must come from a sense of self-loathing. Like, her promiscuity comes from her lack of self-esteem, so she doesn't want her kids or other youn woman to be as "lowly" as she was. I think it probably comes from a guinine place SOMEWHERE, but she's still crazy and wrong and operating with flawed logic.
