Re: Valley of the Dudes (Will Wilkinson & Kay Hymowitz)
Thursday, I think you're using marriage and sex interchangably. Everybody wants to sleep with the hot bartender, but does any woman want to marry him, if they could have the highly-paid lawyer instead? Now some women WILL marry the bartender or at least let him hang around, but I doubt he was ever their first choice. Its called "settling".
Re Goldman guys sleeping with 10's, clearly you've never heard of modeling agencies. One phone call, and a ton of 10 's will show up to any VIP room in the city. But only if the guys they're meeting are "high status". This sort of mild pimping goes on all the time. Same in Los Angeles...agents are always introducing hot women to their lawyers, bankers, and other friends who work 15 hour days and don't have time to meet anyone. And believe me, the women will always show up.
