In The Merchant's Tale , by Geoffrey Chaucer, a rich old bachelor, January, decides it's finally time to get married, and settles on an eighteen-year-old girl named May as his ideal wife. Chaucer relishes the details of the wedding night, the physical discrepancy between wrinkled old January: "The slake skin aboute his nekke shaketh" lusting after beautiful young May, who "was broght abedde, as stille as stoon," understandably. The bedroom scenes have all the gleeful mischief of Ricky Gervais roasting Hugh Hefner at the Golden Globes: "Congratulations to Hugh Hefner who's getting married at the age of 84, to year-old beauty Crystal Harris. When she was asked why she was marrying him, she said 'Because he lied about his age -- he told me he was 94! Chaucer is a bit more subtle, though still suggestive, when describing May's reaction to her husband's depredations: "And she obeyeth, be hir lief or looth. January's comeuppance soon arrives in the form of a young seducer, Damian, who wins May's heart with a secret love letter, but January is so jealous and watchful that they have to wait months to consummate their attraction.

You're starting to get more comfortable together in the sack , so you venture to ask your significant other if they have any sexual fantasies they want to explore. You're imagining some handcuffs, maybe, or some doctor-nurse role-play. Her now ex- husband wanted to arrange sexual encounters for her—and initially, she was game to give it a try. Permission to play around, to cheat , to have her cake a committed relationship with one man and eat it too plus hot sex with others? Sure, why not. Sometimes he'd view the action on Skype while away on business trips, and other times he would just send Stacey on her way, asking her to come back with a good story.

I would say that I agree with it somewhat, but don't disagree the rest of the way. I see it arising out of insecurity and inferiority. This creates a "beta" male for lack of a better word, and he sees himself as unable to secure his mate.
