Porn stars and motorcycles

It’s no secret that girls and guys are different. After all, men are from Mars and women are from Venus, right? Makes sense to me. There are many things I’ll never understand about the opposite sex, and this weekend, I added two more things to my list: porn stars and motorcycles.

What exactly is the male fascination with porn stars and motorcycles? This weekend, I had way too many conversations about both, and I just don't get it.

Maybe I’ve read one too many Marie Claire articles about the sister/mom/daughter/best friend who became a coke/heroin/insert drug here-addicted porn star and ruined her life and the life of her family, but the thought of shaking a porn star’s hand kind of gives me the heebie jeebies and makes me want to run for the hand sanitizer.

And as for motorcycles, well, I’m terrified of them, and yes, I’ve ridden on one. 70 miles an hour. On a Los Angeles freeway. It was by far the scariest thing I’ve ever done, and I prayed that if I could just hold on long enough to get to the exit, I’d never sit my butt on a motorcycle seat again. I also know someone who got very hurt on one in an accident that wasn’t his fault.

Neither of these arguments do anything to change the minds of my male companions. Their eyes continue to light up when they talk about the porn stars they met at the bar and the motorcycles they want to buy off of Craigslist, and I continue to shake my head, baffled.

Beer. Sports. Bar food. Tailgating. A clean pair of sneakers. New cars. Dart boards. Guys nights. Drinking games. Leaving the seat up. Baseball caps. Frat parties.

These things I get, but porn stars and motorcycles…

Sorry, boys, you’ve lost me on those.

guys are d-bags. plain and simple. they're just dumb creatures and that's why they are easily fascinated with things like these.

I agree, but I don't think about it. I have more important things to use my brain cells for than to try to understand men. Maybe you can use this to your advantage. Just wave a thong or something shiny in front of them every now and then, and you'll own them forever!
