The Macro-Sexenomics of Female Beauty

Thinkers like Adam Smith and Karl Marx were on the right track in asserting that self-interest is a key animating force of society but they both overestimated human rationality in the enlightenment fashion.  Stuck in this literal-minded rut they assumed economic activity is the only manifestation of self-interest that matters. Clinging to prudish 18th century notions of human nature, they never considered that more animal desires are upstream of economic activity.

It’s true the butcher and the baker want to make money, but they don’t do so just so they can be consumer cogs buying more stuff to sustain the virtuous cycle.  They also want to get laid and have kids.  If they had no hope of forming a family or even getting a nice girlfriend, they might well abandon getting up early every day to work hard in favor of easy lives just getting by.

Our conventional economics rely on financial gain for its own sake and on the surface this seems to work.  But within this paradigm we fail to ask why people so reliably want more money, even well past the threshold of marginal utility. We typically handwave this, saying that human desire knows no bounds.  There is truth to this but we neglect to inquire into why this is.

It only becomes rational for people to acquire more than they will ever need because they are competing for relative status against one another.  Status competition is ultimately connected to the struggle for the best possible shares of the sexual market.  In other words, this means access to the most desirable mates.
For men this means a chance to court beautiful women that most men can never dream of having a shot at.   Young women as a whole in society are like dangling carrots that keep the masses of males striving away in the office and designing rocket ships.

We are told, of course, that we live in a modern wonderland of free sexual opportunity for men but this is of course misleading.  Pretty women know they are always in high demand by millions of men and this age of internet and urbanization allows them to play their hands in the most discerning way.

Past the last day of high school or college, a man usually has to pay to be in the same room with pretty young women.  In the general population these ladies are scarce to be seen.  The overwhelming demand causes them to insulate themselves from public exposure or else they go out with those huge movie star face-hiding, eye-contact-avoiding sunglasses and a stony “resting bitch face” as the manosphere calls it.  I don’t know if we can overestimate the value of a pretty woman’s spontaneous smile in keeping a society healthy even when no flirtation is intended.  Defensive stinginess creates a vicious cycle of desperation and hostility when the slightest friendly gesture invites urgent sexual advances.

There was once the concept of the “girl next door” a wholesomely pretty girl close at hand in ordinary daily life.  In the 21st century this no longer really exists past high school as attractive young women migrate to the biggest cities where they are from then on concentrated.
This serves a dual purpose in giving them access to the highest ranking men while imposing high costs of living and huge decreases in quality of life on the thirsty masses of men who try to pursue them there.

It is not even a viable strategy for most men to try to lock down the hot women before their great urban migration as the society stigmatizes youthful marriage and statutory rape laws make it illegal for older men to seek teenage brides in the suburbs and countryside.

Thus, the sex and the city lifestyle in pricey hipster neighborhoods functions like a burqa for modern women, denying the gaze of unworthy men as they go scantily-clad to the nearby wine bar.

When most men rarely see higher than a 6.5 in public who isn’t flagrantly anti-social, their morale and motivation is sapped and the scale of sexual market value is drastically distorted in favor of those obese and plain women who stay behind.  

While men will always get thirsty enough to settle for whatever they can find, they aren’t as willing to sacrifice as they would be if access to potential mates were more equitable.  Once the girls they could approach are repulsive enough compared to anime porn, enthusiasm for the chase goes into a downward spiral.

For every low-status nerd who is willing to date a fat woman, there is another who ends up a celibate omega.  This creates millions of bare branches with no roots or prospects in the social order, a state of affairs which makes steadily increasing agitation against the establishment inevitable.

Even those men who still succeed with women know they could be doing a lot better.  Without any real status or bargaining leverage they are struggling with long term relationships and family formation.  They have no more stake in the present state of affairs than do incels.  

Just as illegal immigration and offshoring push down wages for everyone, most men see their sexual market payoff reduced by relentless demand inflation.
To put it in perspective, we all know how an influx of millions of pretty young women would be received by the matriarchy. 

The overwhelming thirst caused by the hyper-inflationary collapse of the sexual market has played a significant role in the death of civic life.  Whether churches or old-fashioned bowling leagues, widespread male desperation erodes the social trust required for co-ed contact or cooperation between men outside of carefully vetted social circles.
Whenever a new man shows up, he is bound to be met with suspicion by the women and hostility by the men.  No one wants yet another swinging dick adding to the society-wide sausage fest. 

Clearly, a society that wants to persist under modern conditions must acknowledge the importance of balancing the sexual market for the sake of cohesion and stability.
To prevent complete social breakdown we might begin by:

-Making it less easy and desirable for pretty women to hide themselves in urban walled harems.
-Making it easy to import pretty young women to control sexual market hyper-inflation.
-Easing statutory rape laws so men who take until the their late 20s/30s to get established can be rewarded by society with high school brides.
-A fat tax.
-Deport illegal men, children, old, ugly women, but let 5s or better stay.

A main point here is when we objectively rate beauty in a new inegalitarian age we can incorporate it into policy.   A special tax on obese women for instance would tacitly acknowledge they are reneging on their side of the social contract by depriving society of the beauty that motivates male participation and helps sustain a workable balance of power between the sexes.
Similar penalties might apply to disfigurative piercings or tattoos.

Congregating in a few neighborhoods in a few cities could be dis-incentivized by removing feminist laws that make it easier for women to get nice white collar jobs they can’t get fired from and imposing special taxes on certain places of residence for single females.

These kinds of measures would obviously trigger massive female opposition, but if women as a whole tried living within a stable balance of power rather than an extractive matriarchy, they might actually like it.  
At present, even plain women have countless suitors to choose from but they live with a millionaire’s dilemma where they have to assume every man they meet is trying to get what’s in between their legs.
If they could live in a healthy society where non-adversarial social interactions are actually possible, they might to their surprise cease to be as angry and lonely as they are now.

    I’m reminded of Angry Harry a no longer extant UK blogger who was talking about this topic years ago.

    One thing he noted was how easy it was to be doing genetic enginering compared to the past. Bio hacking is a common enough brainy guy hobby now and some angry incel or omega may well turn his brain in that direction insteasd of the usual bullet fueled rampage and inflicty serious harm

    Not exactly a new idea either Frank Herbert the author of Doom had a book called the White Plague about a man who loses his wife and goes bio-terror on humanity. I won’t spoil it but its a good read and very scary these days

    Ha! I’ve often contemplated how seemingly impossible it is to meet attractive women on a regular basis outside the cities. When I went to NYC or LA it was amazing to see beautiful women just wandering around.

    Right or wrong, it’s hard to maintain motivation when you don’t have a visual goal. “If I work hard at x she or she or she might be interested”. The suburbs and small towns are a wasteland for a single man, you just don’t meet anybody unless you’re willing to go older single mother.

    Not to mention that the bar for men getting a look in is incredibly high. Fair enough on one level, I have high standards myself, but it’s getting unjustly high for what you get in exchange.

    You have just created the best concise explanation of the financialization/welfare state/male competition dynamic I have ever read.

    When you measure the financial costs of a stable male Striver lifestyle in the metropoles, well, there’s wild inflation there. And that’s just in USD.

    Another epic post. This should be linked and referred to for years to come. Smooth-sipping Giovanni.

    The girl next door still exists, but now she is from the Congo. Or from Syria. Or India. And has her own community, and crowd of thirsty beta orbiters of her own kind keeping a careful eye on her.

    Lol. Count me in.

    This proves why prostitution should be legal. Increased competition always results in better service and lower costs. Single, non-pro women would have to be nicer towards men. Since this won’t happen, the next best thing would be to import more women. Everyone is currently allowed 2 fiancé visas. If everyone took advantage of this, the sexual market would change quickly.
    Venezuela and Greece are both economic basket case right now. When your choice is fucking many men to survive, the idea of just fucking one probably has great appeal. I know it worked out well for my great great grandfather when he bought his wife from Germany, during the depression of 1873.

      I agree, legalized prostitution would help but is only part of the solution. Lots of those Arab countries basically seem to tolerate it(even though it’s illegal) and they are still volcanoes of omega rage. I figure even ordinary Saudis who aren’t getting lucky can take a trip to Bahrain or Dubai?

    These all seem like pragmatic solutions. I also wouldn’t be surprised if polygamy returned to being a regular part of western life. Perhaps a hybrid arranged marriage situation, in which the parents/some family or peer council picks the first wife as a means to solidify the production of offspring and the security of the family name, while the following successive wives would more or less be the result of desire and romance.

    Some good observations, but also some pie-in-the-sky ideas. Tax tattoos? If you can get that passed, you could achieve the same aim by dropping a few diversity initiatives.

    I’ve pondered this topic and been around this part of th internet forba long time. A pattern I’ve noticed is that single men on the make seem to have a lot of suggestions for what fathers of attractive daughters should do (put down your pitchforks…I, too, am a single man on the make). I warn that this is not productive.

    Big points, though, for this:

    The overwhelming thirst caused by the hyper-inflationary collapse of the sexual market has played a significant role in the death of civic life.  Whether churches or old-fashioned bowling leagues, widespread male desperation erodes the social trust required for co-ed contact or cooperation between men outside of carefully vetted social circles.

    I’m of the extremely unpopular opinion among both right-wing and left-wing circles that all forms of sexual intercourse should be legal, full stop. Now, your instant — and horrified — response is “but what about X”. And the answer is that once fathers and husbands are given back control of the women in their lives, it will be their task to sort out these problems. Privatize sexuality. You have a daughter, you protect her from unwanted suitors. You have a wife, you make sure nobody’s sniffing around her. You keep strangers away from your children. Government should not involve itself, at all, with these matters, so that any failure on your part to protect your family will result in your family being unprotected.

    If sexuality were completely privatized, functional patriarchy would spring to life within a short while, if only out of sheer necessity. Even if this idea of mine is too extreme and you will ultimately end-up rejecting it, merely thinking along these lines can shed some light on what’s wrong with the current state of affairs, which is that governmental regulation has REPLACED patriarchal control over families, with the result being what we see today happening, which is very bad indeed. So, I do think that the less interference there is by the state in matters pertaining to sexuality, the more “natural” thus effective will be the remedies to the ills plaguing the modern sexual market.
