What are your thoughts on these 5 points? Would you give this advice to the younger generation coming in behind you?
OP asked so i'll provide another perspective.
I disagree with the main thrust of where OP is going.
caveat: I'm going to make generalisations. As man and knowing other men I feel that more often than not the following are: reasonable axiomatic generalsiations that are true 51% of the time at least. 49% they are wrong. take it with a grain of salt.
I agree. u don't want to make sex a bargaining chip. but the purpose of not sleeping with a man should not be to use it as a bargaining chip but as a form of protection for oneself. I am making a generalisation here: when a woman sleeps with a man she becomes emotionally connected to him. this should not be made lightly on someone who hasn't invested or committed in you. otherwise you might get hurt:
I know guys who just want to sleep with a girl and then when it's over they never want to see her again. sometimes they will fake an entire relationship just to obtain sex.
Let's move on:
It assumes men are all horny animals and will have sex with you, provided you allow it. This is that same tired argument that women can get sex just by snapping their fingers.
i think it is much much easier for a man to get a woman to commit than the other way around. much easier. there are women who have trouble getting their man to commit to marriage, but generally speaking, i'm not sure if I know a single man who has had trouble getting their woman to commit to marriage.
of couse he can't snap his fingers, it's very hard, but the reverse also applies: much easier for a woman to get laid than a man. i didn't say it was easy. i said it was easier.
i'm not a woman but all else equal im guessing a man who is rich is more desirable to a woman than a man who is unemployed has no money and no prospects. oh that's unfair and narrowminded but that's just how things are as a generalisation. same holds true in the reverse: a woman who has slept with 50+ guys is significnatly less desirable than a virgin bride. generalisation but 51% true. That's how it is. It's programmed in the brains of men everywhere.
if a job applicant applies everywhere and is successful he is an absolutely hero. but if a hiring firm hires random people off the streets the firm is viewed as being stupid. same with women. that's why this sexual double standard exists:
if a woman is a virgin that is a good thing - she is pure and perfect and that is to be respected and admired.. on the other hand if a man is a virgin then that is DEFINITELY not a good thing. there is a double standard HERE TOO!!
this is another perspective that is not mainstream. i hope another voice can add something to this discussion.
