Fuckin With Fuck Boys

anatomy of a fuck boyI fuck with fuck boys like it’s a fucking fixation, but it’s not. It’s something more sinister than that. Perhaps more predatory, too, because after years of having sex with indifferent young things that know how to fuck, I’ve mastered the art of casually injecting myself into their lives for a brief sexual tryst and then walking away whenever I feel like it. I guess this makes me the female¬†equivalent of a fuck boy, but somehow this doesn’t make me a hoe. Or, rather, it makes me a hoe, but it also means that I’m a mean person, because in my persistent pursuit of unlocking male privilege for myself by treating men as shitty (if not shittier) as men treat women I have found that turning the tables is a fairly dark pursuit.

But enough about that, and more about being a woman who takes pleasure from fucking emotionally unavailable, psychologically impoverished men and doesn’t call it an L. Being a woman who likes having sex with fuck boys is kind of like being a guy who likes having sex with strippers: you know that it will never be a real, fulfilling relationship, but, hey, the sex is fun, so fuck it. And, hey, maybe we’re not looking for real relationships, maybe we’re just looking for something for right now. Fuck boys are utterly disposable, and everyone knows it, so rather than feeling badly about ourselves for wanting to get engaged with a sexual display of emotional paucity, perhaps we should take control of the fact that, hey, so what. He’s got good dick. He’s gonna get kicked to the curb when all of this is done, but maybe people should stop feeling sorry for me and my sexual choices and start looking at him and wonder what kind of person aspires to be the kind of man that a woman like me chews up and spits out of fanged pussy.¬†But, don’t worry about him. After I’m done with him, he’ll probably wise up to the game, and after letting me fuck for free, you’re gonna see a bona fide gigolo where a fuck boy used to be.

All of which is fine, because we need an epithet tantamount to the misogynistic pejorative “hoe,” and we women need a good way to label the things we use for sex so that everyone else can know which ones are the things we just use for sex. And “fuck boy” is a term that does it very well, so fuck boy it is.
