Look at you, gettin’ more than just a re-up
Baby, you got all the puppets with their strings up
Fakin’ like a good one, but I call ’em like I see ’em

The duality of a womanizer.

What if there was a way to punish womanizers?

I remember being told that it’s not illegal to be a jerk. It was during a seminar about narcissism and dealing with them in the legal system. They (psychologist) enlightened me – and everybody who tuned it – that the judge doesn’t care about the diagnosis as their dockets are pretty full unless it’s already been filed and presented.  Furthermore, it’s technically not illegal to be an insufferable arsehole. The same can be said about womanizers. It’s not illegal but it’s sure as hell immoral and deplorable. But the inspiration behind The Woes of Men and Sex came far before watching that seminar. Actually, it took place in college.

While I was in college, I had a frienemy that didn’t like the fact that I was a Christian and a virgin. In fact, he was hellbent on trying to turn me into him. He wanted me to sleep around with multiple women and wouldn’t insult my faith and ethnics because of it. Even to this day, I don’t like the idea to sleep around. If there’s an agreement, that’s a different story. But this man didn’t bother with that and would insult the women if they approach him about this while making them out to be the bad guy. I watched all of this and had no problem calling him out on his bullshit. That was something he didn’t like. Not even in the slightest.

He wasn’t the first sociopathic womanizer I’ve come across in my life. And, yes, I said sociopathic because they weren’t that organized; otherwise, they would be called psychopaths. But that also leads to how I constructed the story.

I wanted to mirror my disgust and desire for retribution in this story. I wanted the reader to understand my frustration with these species of men that think it’s okay to hurt these women and discard them as conquests. I also wanted to serve as a cautionary tale to all men about the sword-edge sword of entitlement. Remembering all of my conversations with these pathetic men, I always remembered their smug sense of entitlement in their tone as if they had every right to treat these women like they did. It was that toxic set that I wanted to be their undoing because, in hindsight, it would be eventually. Besides, as they would soon figure out, entitlement works both ways.

It took about a week to create the ultimate nightmare for a womanizer. I went about in a way that made my brother laugh as he called me a sadist. See, womanizers don’t respect women. Not really, anyway. So, I decided to create a race of women that could exploit that way of thinking while making them irresistible to the heterosexual male. I won’t give too much away but my brother will tell you that the fate of the main character, which was the embodiment of all the womanizers I’ve ever encountered, was quite a sight…and a little unfair. Nevertheless, he enjoyed it so much that he passed it along before I even got a chance to make this post. Haha! And, with that, I hope you enjoy the story.
