Resolved Question

Why do some men advertise their sexual conquests ?

why do certain men feel the need to slander or blacken the names of females they have slept with ? I find it hard to believe that men can sit around and gossip about women they've been with. What is the point of this ? Just an ego trip ? Surely its good manners that gentlemen never kiss and tell ? or was this prevalent in the dark ages only ? 63 mths ago

Best Answer

The need for challenge and conquest is built into every man. Men brag about their conquests in some way or another. Some men brag about their money and others about the women they have conquered. Unfortunately, men tend to brag about these things as it gives them a feeling of value. There is not enough space to go into detail, but men basically brag to show their worth and status to their fellow men.

It is extremely disrespectful when men do this.However,sometimes I think a lot of women nowadays sleep around and do not even respect themselves.I know I'm going to get blasted for saying this and I am generalising I know.

There is an old saying: divide the number of conquests a man has had by half and multipy by two the number a woman has had!!

Is Bushbaby speaking from experience? A real man doesn't kiss and tell. Yong boys might do this because they feel inadequate in most social areas. It is a sign of immaturity.

It's in very bad taste. Yes, I think it is a huge ego trip. Anyway, the amount of woman he has slept with does not prove that he is a good lover. He might be a total disappointment in the sack, but to him the importance is not how good he is in bed but rather the quantity of women he has slept with. ;-)

The pill had only been around for a few years when we started dating etc.None of my friends or my self ever bragged about any conquests, we respected our girlfriends a bit more than that,yes there were girls who were somewhat easy and they were normally the ones that were targeted.

They also advertise conquests they never had! This is a long story...have to tell it one day. No this IS funny.

This is a probably due to a low self-esteem, immaturity and an attempt at hiding his short-comings.

I know for a fact that often what they say happened is all in the imagination. Many, many, many years ago (in the dark ages) I overheard a date boasting about sleeping with me when he had never even got past first base. Needless to say I was absolutely furious.

Most men boasting about their many conquests are the one's actually getting the least amount of action. Have pity on the poor soul, his best friend is internet porn and his only family is Mrs. Palm and her five daughters.

i am not commenting on whether or not it is the right thing to do, but what I can say is that men need to have their ego's boosted all the time, to ge to a man's love boost his ego, food does not do the trick as believed.....this must be the reason for such stupid disrespectsfull actions

I like Da Man's answer. I think he comes closest to the true answer. Men also brag about their cars or like to show off the beautiful blonde they are dating or about the size of the fish they caught. It does seem to be a man-thing but I agree that not all men brag about their sexual conquests. I agree it is not acceptable to do this.

Men feel superior when they brag about their 'so called' conquests. How many of those men who actually brag are those that have a chip on their shoulder. I wonder if ever they did a survey, they would find that these guys are normally shorter than the average man and not as good looking.

A gentleman does not do this. It makes them feel superior boasting about their imaginary conquests.

This is only done by insecure men.

Indeed! And why do some women do this as well?

well it is a little thing called "The crisis of masculinity"- seriously. men feel they are asserting their power/ domination/ strength/ sexual prowess etc in a world that is beginning to tell them otherwise. Men that feel disempowered (whether at home, in the company of friends, or any other specific situation) will resort to "masculine" identified behaviour (such as drinking, sport, violence, violent sport, bragging about sex and their conquests etc) in order to assert their masculinity. seriously. this theory is also used to explain th occurrence of domestic violence.

Maybe they are trying to empress someone about the size of their, as GOB says, their winkies. I think it is just an ego trip, maybe them thinking that they have an ego.
