Men: Don't Be Hos


In patriarchal society, it is an accepted paradigm for men to date and bed as many women as possible. However, Loop21's Jozen Cummings disagrees. The relationship blogger argues that being a "ho" is not anything of which to be proud; rather, it's a moniker to avoid in the quest for maturity.

You may think you don't want to do anything about being a male ho right now. When you were a kid, and still longing for the days when you could finally say you were no longer a virgin, being a ho was a fantasy of sorts. To you, it meant you weren't only active, you were in demand, and what guy doesn't want to be in demand when it comes to a woman's sexual needs?


Then your fantasy became a reality, but you were so blind, so insatiable, you didn't even realize you were being a ho and, what's even more sad is that you didn't realize how bad it made you look.
