Gear Up, Not Grind Down: How Your Sex Life Can Fuel Or Drain Your Bank Account

They say a wise man learns from his mistakes, but a truly brilliant one learns from the mistakes of others. My dad turned 96 – he’s navigated decades of life and love and has some hard-earned wisdom to drop on the connection between sex and my success and or failure as a man.

Let’s face it, men, sex is on our minds a lot. It’s a primal drive, but here’s the thing: how you handle that drive can make or break your bank balance, your reputation, and, hell, maybe even your soul. My dad’s advice is unconventional, yet strangely profound. Think about it, he’s not preaching celibacy, but he’s warning you about the sneaky pitfalls of careless sex.

“Respect your car, respect your office,” he says. Why? Because those are your tools for building wealth. A car gets you to work. An office is where you hustle.  When you treat these spaces as cheap hook-up spots, you’re not just risking a stain on the upholstery. You’re subconsciously disrespecting your livelihood. Remember the saying, “Don’t s**t where you eat”? Well, you get the point.

And how about that gem about being faithful or abstaining? It might sound old-fashioned, but there’s power in it.  A high body count ain’t a badge of honor, fellas. It can lead to messy complications – drama, diseases, maybe even unwanted kids. All of that stuff drains your energy, your focus, and your cash flow.

My old man’s words hit hard: “Women, children, and cats are loved unconditionally… men are loved for the value they bring.” Ouch, right? But there’s truth to it.  As a man, you’ve gotta make yourself valuable. Build a skill, start a business, and find a passion that translates into a paycheck.  It’s not just about pleasing women; it’s about your self-worth.

Here’s the thing, men: my dad isn’t trying to control my sex life. He’s trying to save me from myself. He’s seen how unchecked desires can lead men down a destructive path.  Think of all the guys who lose everything –  jobs, families, reputations – over a fling, an ill-advised affair. Is that momentary pleasure worth it?

And yeah, sure, we all know that ‘bros before h**s’ mentality. But guess what? True bros look out for each other, and that includes protecting you from making stupid mistakes that could ruin your life. A real friend will tell you when your behavior is out of control, not just cheer you on while you self-destruct.

 

Finally, that bit about fathers and mothers? Now, that’s some deep-rooted stuff. It speaks to respecting your lineage, valuing family, and understanding the weight of a parent’s blessing (or curse!). My dad lived through a different era, but even in today’s world, burning bridges with your folks never ends well.

My dad ain’t just dishing out moral code – he’s dropping practical bombshells. Your sex life isn’t some separate compartment from your success as a man; it’s all tangled together. Handle your desires carelessly, and you might find yourself broke, broken, and without a solid foundation. Heed his words, learn from his longevity, and maybe you too can make it to 96 with a full wallet and a clear conscience.
