Would you rather have a $50,000 raise and only get laid once a month

Or get laid once a week without the raise.

(that's 52 times a year compared to 12 times a year)



I guess if you're married with kids Money wins.

but if your single without kids? you might prefer sex.



It's different for everybody I guess,... But I think sex/women
are pretty damn important when it comes to happiness.

Assuming you have a financially stable life to begin with... Would you rather
have a better sex life or a better bank account?

False, if you're single you take the raise. Hell, married you'd take the raise.

Like I stated earlier, with that raise you can buy some sex. Without the raise, hopefully you can find someone to take your broke ass. And even if you do, eventually she'll see no money is coming in and she'll leave your ass.

The correct answer is neither. When you shed all the lust and greed from your heart and soul, you can become godlike, and find the ultimate happiness from the mysterious energies of the universe.

Back in the 1950's I'd happily choose sex with a faithful pretty wife who kept thin and live a pretty humble life where I can breathe fresh air, eat good natural foods, watch George Mikan play ball on the telly, have nice conversations at the local barber shop and partake in raising mah kids.

Now it's 2012.
Money gets you
- Tickets at priceline.com
- People sucking up to you
- Status
- Dapper clothes
- Internet and books and gaming and stuff
- Power
- Any technology of your choosing
- Fancy schmancy gadgets
- Whatever exotic food you can mention
- Any f*kin thing on Amazon
- A gym subscription
- Paid bills
- Nice furniture
- Women

etc.. and what OFFSETS this question EVEN MORE is all that fukkin porn out there. You'd be a fool not to choose the almighty power of da dolla.

DD's point seems ill and moot because he's using fukking average income and frequent sex vs. outstanding income and very VERY infrequent sex.

You wouldn't say would you rather have an average statistic point guard with outstanding intangibles, leadership abilities, play setting, as opposed to a statistical superstar that's an absolute cancer and negativ einfluence on a team.

Stop thwarting things you deceitful bastard.

I didn't say that... I said it depends.


If I'm married with kids... No, I wouldn't.



If I'm single without kids...

and I get to have passionate sex with a different version of Shakira, Halley Berry, or Carmen Electra every week...

Then it's a easy question.



Man... Some of you guys are underestimating the value of p*ssy.

If they're closer my age, I'll usually play. Sometimes they'll offer too. It's hard to find a woman my age who treat you like the older ladies do us young boys.

Then we need to rephrase the question...

Let's pretend the more money you have ... the worse case of erectile disfunction you develop. (and viagra doesn't help)


$25,000 a year income = No problems in performance

$100,000 a year = minor problems

$500,000 a year = major problems

$1,000,000 a year income = Can barely perform at all



How important is sex compared to money now?

With young chicks, it's like they are everything and you better stop on their watch and worship them. Especially if they bad and got good income, ect.


With older ladies, they been through that young chick faze I just spoke off and know that get's them no where in life. Older ladies are down with whatever, they just wanna have fun, get the D slanged on em and chill.

Some of you are overrating sex. Couple seconds of good feeling right before you ejaculate doesn't beat all the stuff you can buy with money.

I've tried to devalue sex by belittling it to those "couple seconds", but it's much more than that.

I think a lot of cats are undervaluing porn though. I'm one horny ass dude, and I've gone through long droughts but maintained somewhat level composure by relying on internet porn. Fantasizing about and pleasuring myself to the sight of a top-notch dame is definitely preferrable to banging some average chick I'm likely to pull on most occasions.
