    I just wanted to spin this differently unless its been done.
    The "Women need men like a fish needs a bicycle." Has been an
    in joke for years especially since fish don't ride bicycles
    men and women do. Its like a for fish bikes don't exist.

    So are women really saying beyond the cute joke:
    If there really came a time where through some horrible fluke
    all men became sterile,women fertile only able to reproduce females plus men died of a plague that exclusively attacks male chromosomes could women survive?

    I hate to say it but I believe women would survive because of their organizational abilities. Now whether before or after the last male is killed off by disease, old age, suicide, or homicide is debatable.

    Also it the same happened to women men also have the means to survive. You know when men do great near impossible things when they must. If women were to vanish from the globe in less than two generations men too would survive.

    Both sexes can and would survive without the other the psychic pain would twist and contort them and a new strange society would emerge but both sexes if either were extinct the other would carry on. It would be single sexed but wouldn't go extinct.
    That's what I believe. Any comments time for both sexes to speak up.

    Personally a women needs a man and a man needs a women to reproduce.

    A woman needs a man for sexual relations.

    But does a women need a man for anything else? No...

    In order to live my life and achieve my personal goals all i need is myself and belief that i can do it. I dont need a man for this. I dont need a mans love as I have enough love from family and friends and my child.

    Men need women as they need the womens touch and compassion that a women offers thats why most guys are known as mummys boys. 
    Men NEED womens flesh.  They think about her flesh near enough most of the day. 

    Women on the other hand are not normally motivated by sex.  Women are more complicated than men as majority of men are the same (not refering to all behaviour but with regards to sex and women) Where as women can find comfort in other things.

    That is just my personal opinion

    Darlings you seems to have 0 hubs and 0 fans, and answering your own questions. Are you man or women or man and women.

    I'm all woman, and I would think the worst for a man would be if we humans lived in the wild and there was only one dominant male.

    And the worst for the women, if the old bugger couldn't cover all the females.

    What a question? We need you, you need us!

    I could enjoy the company of a woman right now! To hold her in my warm embrace and inhale the scent of her soft hair as I trail kisses from behind her ear. To feel her heart beating against my naked chest, her nails running lightly down my back and then a pause as we lock our gaze and our lips begin to drift closer together and anticipation becomes knowing and nothing else matters!

      You sound so romantic. You should write a song about this. I think women need men as much as men need woman.

        Poppa Bluesposted 9 years agoin reply to this

        Thanks! I love passion! I love that feeling when you connect with another soul when you're so lost in intimacy that nothing else exists, when in that instant when all is lost and two are one! I have written many stories not just about passion, and love but about sex, and pleasure. I just don't think I could post them here. They're too graphic for hubs.

          Can you post them in another site? people who are passionate have vivid imagination and they are lost in the world most of the times? imagination runs wild, but I love reading things like that, could not write as vivid as the way you do though..

    To Poppa Blues, toatlly off subject, but I wanted to tell you something..
    last week you told me to go to the library to find a friend..and to be honest at the time I was like...what? you arent even alllowed to talk at the library, then 2 nights ago it popped into my head, and I thought...oh  yeah..they have activities!! like knitting and bookclubs and I said my town doesn't have a library, but 2 neigboring towns do. On Thursday I ge the car and Ill be going to the library to get a schedule of events. I wanted to say thank you, for the advice!! smile

    Men need vs. Women need, well....what differance does it make?

      Poppa Bluesposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      Yeah that's exactly what I was talking about! They have book clubs and such. Our library even has free concerts! It's the place to start when you're looking for people with like interests in your community. Also, there is the local school and the adult education offerings.

        Justine76posted 9 years agoin reply to this

        Its just cuz we dont have a library I forgot about the clubs. BUT I rememberd!!YAY!!! the next town over does free concerts in the park in the summer, but we are far off from summer now..oh sumemr, right? in the meantime, I am excited to go get the winter schedule of events, just gotta convince hubby its worth the gas money and him putting hthe kids to bed once a week....

        about the original question...
        here is what I have decided..human beings need contact with ohter like minded human or woman, people need some kind of connection to each other.

    The day that women don't need men and men don't need women is a sad day indeed.  What would be the point of being here?

    Is there that much animosity between the sexes that the original question was asked?

      Hear, hear Flightkeeper.

      Apart from the obvious, I (being a woman) need men to lift heavy loads and drive the land digger and build me bridges and the Tajmahal and things like that. Men need women to love them and be nice to them so they willingly carry on lifting heavy loads and drive the land digger and build us bridges and the Tajmahal and things like that.

      Do men need women more than women need men? I think men and women are mutually compatible and complement each other as nature intended.

    in some cases,  men need men more and women need women more. lol

    prettydarkhorseposted 9 years ago

    they both need each other equally, but it has been proven for a fact that when women die first before the men in a married relationship, the men follows immediately, LOL....

    but not the other way around I think women have more coping mechanisms than men..

    women have higher life expectancy than men,
