Bogus Sexperts - Part Two: John "Mars/Venus" Gray

Part two of my series about bogus sexperts is up at Good Vibrations Magazine. This segment skewers John "Mars/Venus" Gray. Here's an excerpt:

Agony Aunts And Bogus Ph.Ds – A Critical Look At Sexperts – Part 2.

Gray likes pop-psychology terms for the way men and women behave, and his terms are simplistic, stereotypical, and rather embarrassing to read. He insists that “men are like rubber bands” who retreat into “caves” and “women are like waves” who “crash” into “wells”. According to the web site “The Rebuttal From Uranus”, the man’s cave is “voluntary – time to reflect, work things out, solve problems, rejuvenate.” The woman’s well, on the other hand, is “involuntary – darkness, overwhelmed, ‘emotional housecleaning’.”

Did any of that make sense to you? It threw me the first time I read it, too.

Go to Good Vibrations Magazine, put down your dildo, and read the rest.
