(NSFW) Do you think you can tell if someone is not getting any?

Asked by 6rant6 (13697points) January 26th, 2011

In movies, there’s a convention where anyone who is grouchy gets told, “You need to get laid,” or some such. Do you think it’s really possible to read people whom you know well and judge whether that really is the problem?

I have an answer to your question, but I will not tell it here. My answer has something to do with the word “yes”.

They will sometimes volunteer that info.I am not the complaint department,damnit.XD

Are you grouchy today?

Cruiser's avatar

Yes….quite obvious by the high pitched whining and wearing shoulder blades for earrings.

Not if they don’t volunteer the information (like Nessuh), no,

Only those that I know really well, who tend to over-share intimate details of their life.

I have noticed, however, that most folks who say that sort of thing are usually jerks.

@john65pennington -I’m not complaining! XD
@Vunessuh -Why don’t you take yourself out for dinner, dancing and drinks? XD

6rant6's avatar

Yeah, I don’t think you can call it reading if someone says, “I need to get laid!”

If that happens, the only thing to figure out is whether that’s an offer.

No, I don’t really think you can tell whether or not someone is or isn’t getting any but I think you maybe, sometimes can tell when someone who hasn’t been getting any for a good long time just finally got some. :-)

I have to agree with Lilly. I don’t think there’s a way to tell someone’s not getting any; some people are just grouchy, but when someone has gotten some after a long hiatus it’s hard not to tell ;)

lillycoyote's avatar

@Nially_Bob And some people simply aren’t ever grouchy whether they’re getting any or not, or may, on rare occasions simply be grouchy for other entirely justifiable, entirely unrelated reasons. This is not something I know from personal experience, of course, just from observing others. ;-)

LEAVE ME THE **(^%$£%$ ALONE ALREADY!!!

@TheOnlyNeffie How to do you tell, how do you know whether or not someone is or isn’t getting any?

6rant6's avatar

The “Me so horny” t-shirt may be a tipoff.

@lillycoyote I think you were really on to something when you say it becomes apparent when they finally get some.
I have someone specific in mind, who I won’t name to cover my own ass, who was such an unpleasant, horrible, mean, BITCH for years. Until she met her (now) husband. The shift in her personality was instant. She’s a completely different person now. I think it is more than just sex that contributes to that crotchety mood, I’m sure a lack of intimacy in general would make anyone cranky.
The reason that I pinpointed this person in particular, is because there were other behaviors aside from the foul mood. Jealousy, and lashing out at people in happy relationships, going out of her way to draw attention to herself, etc. It was clear that she was lonely. The overall change in personality once she started getting some just sealed my opinion on the matter.

I’d say I can’t tell for certain when someone isn’t getting any, (even though I’ll have my suspicions), but I’m pretty sure I can tell when someone isn’t getting nearly enough.

MyNewtBoobs's avatar

Not really. I think it really oversimplifies people, who are naturally complex beings, to have it boil down to sex or no sex. I used to think my mother simply needed to get laid. But then I came home from school one afternoon, and apparently my dad had come home early for a “matinée”, and when they came downstairs 15 minutes later, my mother looked as pissed off and stern as ever. Same goes for other crabby or crazy people. I’ve also seen a few people who were just laid back no matter how much tail they were getting.

lillycoyote's avatar

Sorry, @TheOnlyNeffie a simple yes or no answer to a yes or no question sometimes really throwsw me off, particularly if I’ve forgotten what the question was. You were saying, no, you can’t tell.

Never mind

@papayalily Hm. Dad’s idea maybe?

talljasperman's avatar

if they buy lots of tissue paper..for a guy. Or Chocolate for a girl

6rant6's avatar

@talljasperman Tissue paper? I so don’t get that.

cockswain's avatar

I’m a bit confused too. Tissue paper might imply lots of jerking off (sock babies). But then chocolate for women? Does that mean binging on food?

faye's avatar

I find myself amazed when grouchy, snotty people make a comment about the sex they’re getting. Shouldn’t they be a little more easy going? So, no, I can’t tell.

downtide's avatar

No. I can tell if they’re upset or depressed, but not if lack of sex is the reason. It could be anything.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

I can tell when I’m not getting any.

john65pennington's avatar

Only Jimmy and the twins know the real answer.
