Wise Guys: What Would You Do As a Woman for One Day?

dvice from three of EMandLO.com’s guy friends. This week they answer the following: What would you do if you had one day to be and think like a woman? To ask the guys your own question, click here.

wiseguy_benStraight Married Guy (Ben)The very first thing I’d do is make out with my wife —  so hot when she kisses other women. And really, I hate to be so cliche, but I’m probably like 9 out of 10 guys in that, with just one day as a woman, I’d prolly focus in on the physical experience of being a woman. In other words, lots of sex — lots of it with my wife and lots of it with whatever guys I could find (don’t worry, all okayed by my wife should this ever occur, as long as I play safe, she says). I’d probably have to leave the house at some point for more supplies (food, condoms, men, etc.) and I imagine it’d be at that point that I’d find out all about things like objectification, sexism and just how terrible men are as a class. This, I figure would be completely overwhelming and depressing. So I’d beat a quick retreat home and back into bed.

anonymous_suitStraight Single Guy (Max): Obviously, the first thing I would do is try to have an orgasm. Or rather, orgasms. As many as possible. As a man, I’ve always been a bit jealous and very curious about the possibilities of multiple orgasms, and given this opportunity, I would go for it. After that? I’d probably go out and try to get some nice young man to buy me a whole lot of drinks, a fancy dinner, and maybe torture him a bit before I went home, alone, and pursued even more orgasms. Because hey: I’m still a straight guy, even if I’m in a woman’s body. I assume that I would retain my sexual orientation within such a magical transformation, and thus would not want to take a dude home. I’d feel bad about it, and I certainly don’t encourage women to take this route, but experimenting with men as a woman… well, it gets confusing.

Gay Single Guy (Daniel): I have often wondered what the difference is between straight women and gay men when it comes to how they think and feel about men in general. My suspicion is that it’s probably very similar. Even more interesting to me is how women approach sex with a man. Having enough male privilege, I could say that I’d fearlessly go after the kind of straight man I could never have as a gay man. But since I’ve never really experienced a fear of sexual violence towards me, that aspect would surely add another layer of complication/fascination to pursuing said straight man. Oh, and while I was at it, I’d definitely masturbate a lot so I could experience the most ecstatic multiple orgasm ever.

If i was a woman for a day I wouldn’t be thinking like a man because there will be no testosterone, if i randomly turned into a completely female one day, I would be thinking like a female because of the estrogen and progesterone in my body. This will cause me to want to have sexual intercourse with male partners. Think about dream wedding. Checking out men. Wearing women clothing and enjoying shopping. I will be very emotional and I will probably want to get pregnant with a baby. And the effect of me being a women that day will… Read more »

If I were a plain woman (like I’m a plain guy) would I really have trouble getting sex? I’m not talking about getting dates or a relationship or even being picked up in a bar. I mean flat out walk up to a single guy, say you really want to have sex asap, no strings attached. Would it be that hard to get a yes? Seems to me the only real problem would be getting over the suspicion problem. A lot of people don’t trust things that sound to good to be true. Fi


I find it interesting that none of the male respondents have addressed the difference between having testosterone as one’s primary hormone and having estrogen as one’s primary hormone. There have been studies (I am not sure which, and don’t have the resources to search them out), that have shown a link between estrogen levels and a women’s mental heath.


I think it’s funny that so many of the men mentioned trying those amazing multiple orgasms we women are walking around having all the time. I think they’re missing all the statistics on how hard it is for a lot of women to orgasm even once. It takes a god awful amount of work for a lot of us, and sometimes that doesn’t even do it. If I were a guy, I’d like to try one of those easy orgasms.


I’d probably only have sex once, unless there was something I really wanted to research about it. I’d definitely try to spend as much time out in public as possible, it would be ridiculously interesting to see what it’s like in the social world being a woman. I wonder if all my assumptions about it are all wrong.


Lol @ Johnny. I totally got what you were going at; my comment wasn’t directed at you, though it was inspired by you. The others just took it for granted that they’d be able to get sex whenever they wanted. You stated your premise from the beginning. And looks-ism is definitely not just a female thing; I just thought it interesting.
