Peer-pressured to womanize

March 14, 2008

Peer pressure is a wonderful thing. Its damned if you give in to it and damned if you don’t. Its a great endearing feature of the rat race.

There is a pecking order in the rat race (yeah, rats do peck) and among the boys, how you stack up often comes down to one thing – how much machismo and virility you’ve got to show. Yup, the jock syndrome. That’s why we love exchanging yarns about the hot chick we shagged the other night or how many bottles of Johnny Walker we can guzzle without collapsing. This is how we become legends, the one to look up to. Don’t ask me why, that’s just the way it is.

Bragging at the pub is one thing but what happens if you get cornered into the real deal? An associate shows up with some hot mamasitas, complete with the key to a condo for an evening of debauchery. The problem is, you’re not single and don’t feel like cheating on your wife or gf. What do you do?

If you reject, they’ll say you’re a chicken or a fag, a rap guaranteed stick on you like ironed-on chewing gum. If you go along, your conscience won’t leave you in peace, not when your wife or gf just called to ask what time you’ll be home. If you accept, you can’t refuse the next round without being called a douchebag or something. The agony.

I don’t know about you but being actually happy with my significant other, I’ve accepted with open arms the title of wet blanket and have no issues with it whatsoever. When it comes to womanizing and barf-o-rama sessions, I’ve trained my friends to expect a “no”. I’m not bothered if they call me antisocial. There are advantages of not bothering what others think of you and its actually quite liberating if you ask me.

I also learned that if you’re a wet blanket but people think you’ve got money, they shut up. In fact they might even pretend to be a wet blanket just like you. πŸ™‚

So what about you, how do you handle all that peer pressure to cheat on your wives & gfs?
