No guilt tripping or pouting, please. We’re not obligated and it is unattractive to act like a petulant child who isn’t getting their way. Yes, I am speaking from experience. At some point in my life, I have been involved with more than one man who thought acting like a brat would get him laid. It is sad and annoying. No woman wants to sleep with a man who tries to argue his way into having sex or who reacts poorly when his partner says, “No.” And whatever her reasons; not feeling well, not in the mood, etc. Doesn’t matter. No is adequate. Poor example, but when I counter with, “Peeing is a biological function. Do you feel like you need to pee all the time? No, great. I don’t expect you to march in there and pee just because I’m asking you nicely.”
