[NSFW] When it comes to booty calls, who has the more advantageous position, the caller or the one called?

Asked by Hypocrisy_Central (21749 points ) July 4th, 2014

[NSFW] While listening to a radio talk show the on-air talent entered into a conversation about booty calls. The male said whoever is the caller has the more advantageous position because they are expecting sex, no attachments; ”hit it, and quit it”. In a sense, isn’t that one called, ”the booty” (the one called) in as much or more of an advantageous position since they are getting called because they caller wants access to them; or more over, their body? Even though by being the ”booty” they are by default only being utilized by the caller, even if they are willing participants. It was thought of universally that the person that forms an attachment be it the male or female definitely loses any advantage. In a ”booty call” does anyone have the position of advantage, and if so, who?

Assuming that the woman is usually the bootee and the male is the booter – I know that isn’t always true but for the sake of argument, let’s use that…

The person being called (the bootee) is always in the position of power. She can always say no and not respond to the call, whatever the desires and expectations are of the booter. And presumably she can change her mind (as can he) at any time.

The person making the call is the needy one – the position of supplication and neediness. The person responding has the upper hand – can refuse to come (in all senses of the word).

But let me make this into a theological argument : Are churchgoers simply responding to a booty call from God (or their minister)?

We can’t, and really do not need to because unlike the Booter, and the Booty, God doesn’t need anyone, He is the sovereign Creator of the universe. People come to God because they recognize that fact and basically the superior intellect to get through life and the favor of knowing the King.

As with the Booter, and Booty, it is about getting something the physically satisfies something they feel they need; even if it never truly satisfies, hence their chasing booty to booty or sex partner to sex partner. If the Booty did not need what the Booter provided, even if it is not the one who called Friday night but any of them no matter which night they ask to come over for a shag, then it might start to appear as a faint, faint shadow of the relationship between saints and God.

Actually God does need anyone. She needs everyone. Why do you think He created us?

No, not really. Does a painter need the painting he/she painted? They created simply because they wanted to for their own enjoyment and pleasure.

Is the Booty only the Booty because they have some need to provide pleasure to the caller but they can get all the intimacy they need from themselves?

I’d say the one called. They have the power to accept or reject, so in a sense they set the terms.

For someone who “doesn’t need” followers God’s awfully petty and jealous.

@Hypocrisy_Central God needing his creations has nothing to do with a painter and his painting.
Our very existence is proof she needs us.
But I see you have your opinion, so you are welcome to it.

This is beyond a silly dumbass question as it is a given the booty always has the upper hand in every bootycall situation.

If you’re booty calling someone, you’ve probably both agreed at some point in the past that you’d be ok with sleeping together. So it could be an even playing field.

This is almost like asking, “Two friends meet for coffee. Who has the advantage- the one who set up the coffee date, or the one she calls?” It doesn’t matter. You both want to see each other.

If the one called, for simplicity sake we will say a woman, if she is seen as a 3–5 on a scale of 10, but has a sexy body and is available, does she still have the upper hand if she knows the only reason why her phone rings is that she has a hot body and action is slow with the caller; that she is not seen as ”date material”, or a ’keeper”, just an object for sex. Should she decide to get picky on who to say ”yes” to, what calls she has may dry up. In that situation would you still tip the hand in her favor?
