Roosh V: “Contraception destroys love” because casual sex uses up women’s “bonding glue”

Women agree: Roosh V isn’t spongeworthy

By David Futrelle

It’s not uncommon for aging libertines to have second thoughts about the casual hedonism of their youth. Neil Strauss followed up his 2005 book The Game, which brought the “pickup artist” subculture into the mainstream, with The Truth, in which he confessed that his celebrity as one of the world’s most famous PUAs had in many ways ruined his life and the lives of those around him. (Still, he didn’t return the royalties from his earlier book, as far as I know, or take it out of print.)

Roosh V, who had his own brief time in the spotlight as the world’s most hated PUA, has taken a similar turn in recent years, albeit with much less self-awareness than Strauss. Roosh once made his living with a series of self-published books offering country-specific tips on how to effectively manipulate women in Europe and South America into bed without getting arrested on rape charges.

Now he’s become a far-right moral scold, railing against the sexual “degeneracy” he once so enthusiastically promoted. (He still sells his Bang books though, and recently came out with his latest tome, imaginatively titled Game.)

In a recent post on his self-titled blog — which remains active even though he abandoned his more popular Return of Kings site a few months back — Roosh takes aim at contraception, blaming it not only for helping evil elites depopulate the world but also for destroying love itself, at least for the women using it.

Roosh begins by assailing contraception as a tool of conspirotorial elites bent on reducing the world population — something he thinks they also do by promoting such other alleged social evils as “homosexuality … feminism, transgenderism, and divorce laws.”

But he thinks that the effect contraception has on the female psyche is much more insidious.

Contraceptives allow virtually risk-free casual sex, an act that used to be the most intimate of intimates, reserved for only a husband or wife. Sex used to be a huge practical and emotional decision, on the level of buying a house.

Seriously! Just filling out the forms for a sex mortgage used to take hours!

Now, it is more like choosing which restaurant to eat dinner at, but even the latter takes more care as you check reviews and ask around to assess the restaurant’s quality. Now, men are ready and able to put their penises in any woman, no reviews needed, and it’s even worse that women have become just like men in having sex for the most fleeting of reasons based on their primal desires.

If the idea of women being able to have sex when and with whom they desire does not immediately cause you to run screaming in horror, Roosh helpfully spells out the terrible and irreversible damage that casual consensual sex can do to a woman’s “bonding glue.”

Her what, you may ask? Let’s let Roosh explain:

Before you think I’ve turned into some kind of sex puritan, it’s important to understand that we are all born with a set amount of bonding glue. This glue is required to connect with a member of the opposite sex for love that is practical or romantic for the goal of creating a family. Each episode of casual sex, which contraceptives enable (along with other medical advances like antibiotics that treat sexually transmitted diseases), permanently reduces the amount of bonding glue you possess.

Still unconvinced? Roosh tries another metaphor:

The best way to explain how bonding glue works is to use the old analogy of adhesive tape on a box. When you want to ship a package, you seal it with tape. The recipient can open the package by peeling off the tape, which will retain some stickiness, perhaps enough to ship a new package, but far less than when it was fresh off the roll. If you keep applying and removing tape from a box, it will soon not stick at all. Each time you have casual sex, you’re applying tape to a box and then removing it.

Uh, dude, I think you might be doing sex wrong. Are you sure you’re watching porn and not YouTube unboxing videos?

In any case, the bonding glue on the sex packing tape is a very particular sort of glue, in that it’s apparently much longer-lasting when a man handles it, at least in Roosh’s view.

Women lose far more bonding glue than men with each sexual encounter. I believe that most women will only retain enough adhesive to sleep with between one to five men in their lives before irreparably damaging their ability to love any man. This is why contraceptives are disproportionately targeted to them—if you can get women to have casual sex with only a handful of men, your depopulation agenda will be a guaranteed success.

Men, meanwhile, can pack and unpack their sex box with hardly any effect on their sex packing tape, “barely los[ing] any bonding glue with a casual sex encounter. “

Indeed, Roosh is convinced that the 15 years he spent roaming the world in search of women to “bang” had virtually no lasting effect on his ability to love because, he explains,

I was self-aware enough to slow down fornication when I felt it was beginning to damage me, with sufficient bonding glue remaining. I’ve also met many men with notch counts higher than mine who can still bond with women in a reasonably healthy way (as much as modernity allows), but a woman with the same notch count is likely to develop a severe mental illness. Any child she makes will be accidental and raised in a broken home. …

[T]he best chance of creating a successful family is when the woman had all of her bonding glue intact.

I should note that at no point in his post does Roosh bother to provide any actual scientific evidence that might even remotely back up his claims, nor does he even explain what, biologically, he means by “bonding glue.” Presumably he’s referring to oxytocin, a hormone involved in bonding and childbirth. But who knows? Maybe he really thinks cis women are full of glue and that some of this glue gets stuck on each new condom-clad penis that enters them.

In any case, Roosh is convinced that the solution to this glue-depletion problem is for men to raw dog it every time they have sex.

The healthiest approach to sex for men is sleeping with women without the option to use contraceptives or other forms of modern medical assistance. If you couldn’t use a condom, she couldn’t use birth control, there was no option of abortion, and there were no antibiotics to treat the gonorrhea she could give you, would you still sleep with her? If the answer is no then you shouldn’t sleep with her, because you will lose bonding glue for a purely hedonistic experience.

Still, he insists, this is much more of an issue for women and their bonding glue than for men and their glue sticks.

It’s more important for a woman to imagine this scenario than a man, because she can only make a few mistakes before forever saying goodbye to the possibility of love and family. I went on an international bang tour for fifteen years and found love in a hopeless place, but can you imagine a girl doing that? The only thing she’ll find is a bottle of wine to chase down her antidepressant pills.

Dude, just because every woman you’ve ever had sex with felt like shit afterwards doesn’t mean that all straight-sex-having woman feel this way, whether they’ve had sex with one man, or five, or a hundred, over the course of their lives.

When I think of glue . . .

Hey All, we’re still here, have been busy. Have been reading along.

One of the chores I completed was to glue patches on my one pair of boots, I used this “E6000” glue, it did work.

There’s some kind of stuff called something like “shoe glue” also. I went with the above because it was cheaper. Did work.

My exciting life, in the glue arena.

So other folks read this and imagined people’s junk getting glued together, yes? Please let me not be the only one.

Yes. I can think of no other reason why people who can get pregnant (who Roosh conflates with women) would be offered different pregnancy prevention options than people who can’t get pregnant.

And yet somehow I’ve managed to be married for 22 years, with 4 children who were all wanted and *planned* (thanks to the eeeeviiiiil contraception) despite having way over his maximum 5 partners. It’s almost like he’s talking out of his ass or something.

The amount of bonding glue is reduced for each unique individual a woman has sex with rather than the total number of sex events – very much like how the piece of packing tape loses stickiness from each unique box it’s applied to but not from being applied multiple times to the same box.

Can you regenerate your bonding glue by eating a Pritt Stick, I wonder? They’re non-toxic abd they smell of marzipan so maybe they taste good too?

Women who have sex with women presumably just swap glue and end up with the same amount.

A fine British example of the libertine-turned-puritan was
Malcolm Muggeridge. Muggeridge left his turn until he was 60 – before that he was a serial sexual assaulter of women (and never, AFAIK, apologised for this – he certainly never turned himself in to police and asked to receive justice for his crime as, surely, someone who sincerely repented would have done). Like Roosh, he had a particular hatred of contraception, denouncing “the pill”. Is it just coincidence that this was the first reliable form of contraception which women could use without their partner(s) knowledge? Are bears Catholic? Does the Pope shit in the woods?

When I run low on bonding glue, I just pop down to the hardware store. In fact, my partner and I will probably go there tonight to get some bonding glue together – because we have a project we’re working on together (double bonding!) – and some wire mesh. The bonding glue will probably be silicone based, but I need to do some googling if that’s the right kind.

What about all of us post-menopausal types?

Is this glue relevant to us in any way? Have we lost or gained by these routine hormones coursing through our systems?

Perhaps we get a free pass from now on.

woman: “I love my dad”
after sixth partner: “You know what, nevermind”

Also love the “logic” of “accidental kids being raised in broken homes” being completely the woman’s fault, like the father has no part in it. Also complaing about accidental pregnancies in the same breath you condemn contraceptives and abortions…

Sex used to be a huge practical and emotional decision, on the level of buying a house.

Comparing sex to buying a house: this Roosh guy is quite the romantic!

If you couldn’t use a condom, she couldn’t use birth control, there was no option of abortion, and there were no antibiotics to treat the gonorrhea she could give you, would you still sleep with her? If the answer is no then you shouldn’t sleep with her, because you will lose bonding glue for a purely hedonistic experience.

But wait. David F. is right. Roosh is still selling Bang on Amazon:

Bang is a pickup textbook intended for men who weren’t born with the natural ability to seduce women.

https://www.amazon.com/Bang-Most-Infamous-Pickup-World-ebook/dp/B003ZHVEDM

I’m shocked. And confused. Oh look, here’s a further description of Bang:

It contains simple but effective techniques, moves, and lines that teaches you how to have consensual romance with them [women].

https://www.amazon.com/Bang-Most-Infamous-Pickup-World-ebook/dp/B003ZHVEDM

Okay, I’m even more shocked now — because I’ve never, ever heard of nonconsensual romance. And I’m much more confused. And I’m laughing so hard I’m afraid I might hurt something.

I believe that most women will only retain enough adhesive to sleep with between one to five men in their lives before irreparably damaging their ability to love any man.

Roosh, sweetie, I believe that for every drop of rain that falls, a flower grows. And my belief has the advantage of not being hateful.

I’m pretty sure I’ve heard someone who grew up in a right wing fundamentalist Christian family say that they were exposed to that exact same “sticky tape” metaphor as part of their upbringing…

@Lainy,

I feel your blood-boiling rage for those three.
I’m also so sorry that you had to go through that, and to feel how you did.

@Redsilkphoenix: Ha, I see what you did there!

Nobody ever mentions the fact that when the tape is peeled off the package, the package is permanently damaged too. It loses little bits of cardboard and fuzz to the tape. The flaps get creased, and it’s harder to fold back together neatly. There may also be labels and writing from previous, uh, adventures.

(I’m assuming the package represents the man rather than the sex act. Otherwise the metaphor would make even less sense…the woman is bonding to sex itself, and not the man?)

Same thing with gum. Chew too much gum, get TMJ.

Why don’t we shame men for sleeping around instead? They’re generally the ones who want sex more, so it shouldn’t be easy for them

That’s even more the case here, because ‘package’ is slang for trouser contents.

What about those of us of the ace/aro persuasion? Are we born without glue, or do we just conserve our stickiness? On a related note, is the same glue used for bonds with pets? The “cat lady” trope suggests that Roosh would probably answer yes, but I’ve never heard that a man with pets is squandering his adhesive properties.

Speaking of what purity culture teaches kids, I’ve been reading Samantha Field’s blog off and on for years now, and in a recent post she talked about being interviewed by Cosmo:

(Please note that she writes about being sexually assaulted and how that has affected her.)

http://samanthapfield.com/2019/02/05/yall-im-in-cosmo/

There’s a quote from her blog post I’d like to include here:

In that interview, I talked a lot about how purity culture can trace its ideological heritage straight back to white supremacy, a fact I bring up every time someone asks me about purity culture because they can’t be separated. Purity culture’s roots are buried in the murk and mire of how white supremacy codifies bodies as “clean” or “unclean,” or “pure” and “sullied.” White bodies are good, pure, chaste and maintaining that state is of absolute critical importance– we must not taint our bodies with the “filth” of sexual sin or miscegenation. Black bodies are beyond redemption; black men are viewed as inherently sexually ungovernable and black women have no right to autonomy over their sexual and reproductive lives. This is a critical piece of purity culture that somehow always gets overlooked by editors when they decide to run a piece on it (insert eye roll here).

Seems relevant to this forum, since we’ve talked about this kind of intersection before.
