“Men need to hunt. She obviously understands this. She’s offering herself as prey. Not easy prey. But willing.” 

― Willow Madison

There’s an awesome moment towards the end of Milan Kundera’s The Unbearable Lightness of Being where two women surprise a renowned “pickup artist” with the news that they’re about to have sex.  They tauntingly tell him if he can get an erection in 60 seconds he’ll be allowed to join them.

A minute later their laughter is heard as they close the door behind him.

In the 20th Century it was believed that men didn’t need foreplay.  We were just always ready for sex.  Here in the 21st Century we know better.  Mostly.

Sometimes, though, people mistakenly say things like “men need to hunt.”  But really, like the Kundera’s foolish player, men need foreplay too.
