Most of men’s problems stem from lack of non-sexual intimacy with their partners and perhaps a much deeper underlying fear of vulnerability. We’ve been socially conditioned to believe that having sex makes us more masculine and expressing vulnerability makes us weak. As a result, we live in a culture where men won’t go to therapy and will instead attempt to fuck the pain away, be it to a screen or with another human being.

I’ve known great troubles, both mental and emotional, and many of them have been cured sitting alone in a room with a therapist. And, I’d argue just as many, if not more, have been cured spending fifteen to twenty minutes with my head on a woman’s chest.

Fucking is good. But it’s not medicine.

P.S. One day these one-minute writings will be a big book called “One Minute, Please.” Can I let you know when that day comes? You can say yes, here.
