Obviously, for many men there have long been physical limitations to a more sexualized society. For those who suffer from erectile or another sexual dysfunction, a more sexualized society would not only be useless but possibly harbor shame. Men who no longer can perform sexually, and women who are no longer attractive as sexual partners, have a natural affinity to ideologies that preach sexual abstinence or rigorous morals (these ideologies include the likes of the Catholic faith, as well as the anti-sexual ethics, which can be found, to various degrees, in many modern democratic societies, especially the US)
Primarily by putting older men (who are more likely to sit on decision-making bodies) back into the sexual arena, Pfizer, the makers of Viagra, prepared the ground for a possible second sexual revolution. The prevention of sexually transmitted diseases is another important aspect. Yet another way in which the medical â€œmode of production?leads to a more sexual superstructure lies in the advances of cosmetic surgery. As long as we can look as if we are in our 20s and 30s, even if we are beyond 60 (and this is medically possible, though not cheap), we retain a sexual market value and have less affinity towards anti-sexual morals.
When men and women prefer sexual partners who themselves have only a restricted number of sexual contacts, this is, to a considerable extend, based on fear of sexually transmitted diseases. But this is a problem that can be managed through technology. Preventive vaccinations would be beautiful, but there is much room for other solutions, ranging from quick, effective medications to more sophisticated condoms. Furthermore, a strong but pro-sexual government could do a lot in terms of the control of sexually transmitted diseases.
Egalitarian models of society are flawed. Nature has equipped mankind with different individual sexual qualities, including attractiveness, in accordance with a concept by which the males of the species compete among themselves for the right to fertilize the largest possible number of females. The same quality of sex for all doesnâ€™t fit into that blueprint. Better men and women will always have a better sexual market value and, quite possibly, more and better sex.
But in spite of this, societies in which all men and women have more sex, even men who are not alphas and women who are no longer in their prime, can be engineered. Yes, I use the word "engineered" because the problem is largely technological: it involves the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases and unwanted pregnancies, as well as the medical treatment of erectile dysfunction and the loss of libido.
