The Rational Male – book review…

This book by Rollo Tomassi deserves a longer review. I loved it! It’s surprising because it’s basically written for men who can’t get laid, about how to pick up women and keep them interested. That’s a very short summary, since the book has so many more topics. I heard about it, and got curious enough to order it. I must say I think it’s an excellent read for women as well. I believe a lot of men can benefit from this book. 

I’m personally tired of the discussions that the sexes are, or have to be, exactly equal. Yes for equal rights, but c’mon, we are male and female. We have different capabilities, skills, knacks, hormones, etc. Example: if the car needs winter tires, the guy is usually stronger and more often likes doing mechanical stuff. For your info, I changed plenty of tires in my life, and am totally capable of it. But if a shirt needs a button sewed on, I have smaller fingers and most likely can do it easier and faster. No need to feel it’s a gender issue here. Like the book says – “We are not created equal – we’re supposed to complement each other.”

Another very funny chapter in this book is “Qualities of the Prince”. It’s about “demands” in a dating profile. I copied the text from the .pdf form of the book online – This is the females “ad” for the male she is looking for…

Here is a well thought out idea of what kind of guy I am interested in… 5’10” or taller, lives near by, compassionate, intelligent, giving, VERY Attractive (someone other than your mother or sister has said so, lol) and in shape, prefer self employed, FAMILY orientated, open to new spontaneous things, likes to camp, likes to golf, wants children, would be a good father and faithful husband, a gentleman, gives me my space when I need it, not a nerd or too sarcastic, can take a hint, social, calls for no reason, remembers sending a note or a nominal gift IS romantic and necessary, respectful, sense of humor, and thinks the world of me. I am not interested in anyone older than 41 and anyone who makes less money than me since I do not plan on changing the lifestyle I have grown accustom to and hope to one day be a stay at home mom and furthermore… my children will never want for ANYTHING (but of course will not be spoiled brats either lol). You should also love animals.  I am not attracted to red heads at all lol sorry.

And then the author Rollo Tomassi created a somewhat similar profile ad, but from the male perspective. This text is copied from the same link as above. 

Here is a well thought out idea of what kind of gal I am interested in…5′ 5″ or taller, but not over 6 feet (because while I don’t mind being eye to eye with you, I won’t ever be looking up to you), lives close enough to be at my house within 10 minutes after I make the call, genuinely passionate, intelligent enough to be good company, sexually available (preferably insatiable) and VERY attractive – we’re talking Jessica Alba, Keyra Augustina attractive – women with a body-fat percentage higher than 8% need not apply. Must be employed but not so well as you’ll interfere with our sexual activities, FAMILY oriented, but only after you’ve hit 30-33, open to spontaneous sex (you know, like outdoor stuff or a surprise 3 way with one of your hot girlfriends after our 2nd martini), likes to camp (in the nude), knows not to complain when I go play golf with the clients from work.

She must want children after 33 years of age if at all, and only after she’s proven to be a good mother and faithful wife, must be a lady with class and know when the right time is to speak and not to speak, not a prude or bitch, can take the first hint, sociable, unexpectedly texts me pictures of her wearing something new from Fredericks of Hollywood, understands that the best gift she can give me is expressing her desire to fuck me like a wild animal, and also understands that gifts for her are treats or rewards for desired behavior.

Must be respectful of my decisions being final, can’t take herself too seriously and thinks the world of me. I’m not interested in anyone over 31 (since this is most women’s expiration date anyway), she cannot have exorbitant spending habits or a credit debtload in excess of $1,000 since I do not plan on changing the lifestyle I have grown accustom to and hope to one day be able to send my own children to college (rather than pay for your student debt), and furthermore… my children will be taught to reasonably earn their achievements on their own and respect the decisions of their Father and mother (and absolutely will not be spoiled brats either). I’m very attracted to redheads, blondes, brunettes, Latinas, Asians, African-Americans, Pacific Islanders, etc., pretty much any woman that meets my physical requirements. I am not attracted at all to even slightly fat women no matter how much “inner beauty” you think you may possess. Hope to meet you soon, your Prince.

Yes, I think it’s a bit over the top and personally probably would never respond to an ad like this. And yes, there was a shitstorm raised from his ‘ad’. Still I think it’s interesting. It is more acceptable for women to have a lot of demands and requirements, but if a guy does a similar post, he is perceived completely different. Like who the fuck does he think he is! 

This book talks about how men are often told to be themselves. Well, if that doesn’t work, should you work on it? Can you change things up a bit? 

It talks about masturbation. A woman masturbating is “sexy, arousing and, nowadays socially empowering. For men, masturbation is a perversion. It implies an inability to be ‘man enough’ to fuck a real woman; whacking off is failure for man, but empowerment for a woman.” I have very open minded girlfriends who don’t mind their man stroking, but I also know women who get jealous if their man masturbates to a porno. 

The book has many more funny reads like: should you reveal how many women you slept with, why women date jerks, why women are threatened by other women, long term relationships etc. I enjoyed this book and recommend it. Some parts I thought are exaggerated, but I think it can be very helpful to a lot of people! 

I’ll also add this as a question to ponder yourself. Would you rather pick a poor man/woman, but good looking, or a rich one, but who doesn’t have the looks? 

Happy reading, Puma
