“There are men who carefully manoeuvre a large limousine out of the garage at eight o'clock every morning. Others leave an hour earlier, traveling in a middle-class sedan. Still others leave when it is not yet light, wearing overalls and carrying lunch boxes, to catch buses, subways, or trains to factories or building sites. By a trick of fate, it is always the latter, the poorest, who are exploited by the least attractive women. For, unlike women (who have an eye for money), men notice only woman's external appearance. Therefore, the more desirable women in their own class are always being snatched away from under their noses by men who happen to earn more.

No matter what a particular man does or how he spends his day, he has one thing in common with all other men - he spends it in a degrading manner. And he himself does not gain by it. It is not his own livelihood that matters: he would have to struggle far less for that, since luxuries do not mean anything to him anyway it is the fact that he does it for others that makes him so tremendously proud. He will undoubtedly have a photograph of his wife and children on his desk, and will miss no opportunity to hand it around.

No matter what a man's job may be - bookkeeper, doctor, bus driver, or managing director - every moment of his life will be spent as a cog in a huge and pitiless system - a system designed to exploit him to the utmost, to his dying day. (...) We have long ceased to play the games of childhood. As children, we became bored quickly and changed from one game to another. A man is like a child who is condemned to play the same game for the rest of his life.”
― Esther Vilar, The Manipulated Man

Seems to me some women want their sexual desires met without having to communicate them to the male lover. Men are expected to be handsome mind readers. This is down to female mating strategy. They want to control every aspect of mating, right down to what men desire. They want to be "taken" and overwhelmed and dominated by men, but only by gorgeous men. These fickle women only want certain men (handsome,wealthy), and all others (ordinary men) to basically sit in the corner and shut up.

Ester Vilar is the most important political female writer of all time. If men weren't such slaves, her books , The MM (1971) and the Polgamous Sex (1976), could spark a revolution of Marxian proportions. We already live in a totally feminized society, so any criticism of Feminism, is blasphemy. Any criticism of Feminism makes you a mysogynist. It's a shame that the second edition didn't taken in account new erosions of masculinity. Todays man is weak and effeminate in comparison to his fore-fathers. Fathers are belittled in Advertising and the Media every day. Her books are polemical, but she knows that men are too passive, or too lazy, to ever change anything. Which is why her third book in this series “The End of the Manipulation” (dtv Verlag 1998. ISBN 978-3-423-36134-7) has never been translated into English.

How refreshing to find a book that pictures women as they really are (not all of them, obviously!). Well worth a read.

Another good book on what we don't often hear. Along with C.H. Sommers, Esther Vilar shines a light on issues that men face in today's society and why that is. A truthful book that gives a good perspective that we don't normally hear about.

The book is the enigma code breaker of women for men.
It is full of eye watering insight. Women should not read this.

Vilar doesn't hold back on her assessment of women, she is fair, educated and accurate.

A really good read. I think you should take it with a little pinch of salt, but quite an eye opener all the same
