Quoting Quiverfull: Fungible Marital Sex?

Quoting Quiverfull: Fungible Marital Sex? September 6, 2016

quotingquiverfullby Larry Solomon of Biblical Gender Roles as found on Facebook

Editor’s note: This is so shockingly vile and demeaning. It paints much of the marriage relationship into a series of trade-offs, exchanges, not too differently than a man going to a prostitute might make. Because make no mistake about it, what Larry is talking about here is cooperation with his wife in exchange for sexual favors. i.e. – want him to do something around the house that’s going to require a handjob whenever demanded. HEALTHY marriage relationships do not work that way! It’s not tit for tat! Interactions with a sex worker do. Larry holds wives as being the same as sex workers.


QUOTING QUIVERFULL is a regular feature of NLQ – we present the actual words of noted Quiverfull leaders, cultural enforcers and those that seek to keep women submitted to men and ask our readers: What do you think? Agree? Disagree? This is the place to state your opinion. Please, let’s keep it respectful – but at the same time, we encourage readers to examine the ideas of Quiverfull and Spiritual Abuse honestly and thoughtfully.

    Heck, this is demeaning to men, assuming that all they want from a relationship is sex on demand!

    BGR should get himself a therapist; he’s a sick puppy.

  • Nightshade

    Larry-boy reduces marriage to the level of a financial transaction, ‘I give you this, now you owe me that.’ Great way to kill a woman’s desire there, make it mandatory that she has to spread her legs anytime he wants to get off.

  • Allison the Great

    I’m guessing that the only reason Larry ever does anything nice for his wife is so that she will have sex with him. Notice he has to use ultimatums, trade-offs, threats and any other vile thing he can use to get his wife to have sex with him. She doesn’t desire his body, or to be with him, he has to force her to comply. What a horrible existence she must have.

  • Poster Girl

    So…..give him unfettered access to your body, give him hand jobs, and dole out praise regardless of merit? Did I miss anything?

    Oh yeah, all those posts he’s written where he suggests cutting off a woman’s social and economic resources completely if she fails to deliver.

  • Nightshade

    Isn’t it though? My man has made it very clear that if I don’t want to have sex on any given occasion that’s OK, he’s quite willing to wait if he even thinks I’m not really into it.

    Funny really, when sex was an obligation with my ex I got sick of doing it, now with my current man I have the option of saying no whenever, and I very rarely want to exercise that option. All I need is the right to say no!

  • Anonyme

    Brain bleach! Stat!
    Aside from the disgusting message that women should be on-demand maids and sex machines who have to toe the line and be punished like a child (or worse), this meme perpetuates that men only want sex and women only want emotional intimacy (which isn’t possible when being treated like an object, natch). Also, “open legs”, eww. Reminds me of the “pro-life” argument, “well, if she didn’t want a baby she should have kept her legs closed!”

  • Emersonian

    Funny also that he seems to think women aren’t ever into sex. All they want from their husbands is hugs and snuggles and listening and chores–none of that dirty dirty sexual pleasure for the ladies, everyone knows women aren’t interested in such things. Riiiiight, Larry.

  • Astrin Ymris

    Probably none of the women he’s been with had much enthusiasm for sex. Perhaps if BGR had ever tried listening to what women want, rather than lecturing them on what they owed him, he’d be wiser and happier.

  • Saraquill

    Please tell me he’s “married” to a blow up doll, fleshlight, or other inanimate object.

  • texassa

    This is seriously so gross. And what is “the pleasure of your mouth” supposed to mean?

  • texassa

    Blow jobs. You missed blow jobs.

  • Allison the Great

    Seriously. He wants a porno character who cleans his house. Someone needs to tell him that these women are not real.

  • BlueVibe

    That actually made my blood run cold.

  • Suzanne Harper Titkemeyer

    I think it’s his way of saying blowjobs

  • texassa

    grossssssssss no one ever wants your religious opinion on sucking the D

  • texassa

    I mean… I guess if you indoctrinate little girls well enough from the time they’re born to believe that god wants them to do this, that, and the other or else they will probably go to hell, it could work out for these guys. That’s how the Mormon Fundamentalist polygamist child abusers do it. The girls know that god will be mad at them if they don’t let their uncles and brothers abuse them until they get married off to an old man at the age of 12. Keep sweet!

  • Melody

    Men are about sex; women are about everything else. Does he really not see that this degrades men much more than it does women?

    He is saying women aren’t all that into sex, and saying men aren’t all that into anything else at all! So they are simple animals, nothing more, whereas the women are allrounded yet pure angels.

    It basicially makes men cartoon characters: one-dimensional.

  • gimpi1

    Yeah, I need the brain-bleach, too. Pass it down the line when you’re done…

    This is one of the most icky things I’ve ever read. and yeah, the “open legs” line pegs the ick-meter for me, too.

  • Allison the Great

    And that’s why these guys are in the CPM in the first place. If they weren’t, they would never have wives. Women who were not raised to believe that they are nothing but sex slaves and who have a modicum of dignity tend to steer clear of guys like Larry. They know this, thats why they go to their into this fundamentalist “safe room” subculture. They can’t make it in the real world.

  • texassa

    Safe room subculture. I like that.

  • Antoinette Herrera

    Because anything that El Gran Pendejo says is pure squick on quantum levels, may I offer…?

  • Allison the Great

    I need to credit that though. IT was rude of me not to do it before. I think it was someone here who said that, maybe Lili Loo? I remember someone was talking to a troll on here about how the CPM subculture was a safe room. It really is.

  • Nightshade

    Or his opinion about anal sex, yet he gives that quite freely too.

  • texassa

    gaggggg. I don’t even want to know. Nasty sex-obsessed people.
