Sexual economics theory

Sexual Economics Theory or SET is a field in academia which evaluates everyday human sexuality as comprised of buyers and sellers.[1] The principle claim of SET is that female sexuality has a higher price than male sexuality.[2]

Founding academic texts[edit]

The 'founding academic texts' of SET are Cultural Suppression of Female Sexuality by Roy F. Baumeister and Jean M. Twenge 2002,[3] and Sexual Economics: Sex as Female Resource for Social Exchange in Heterosexual Interactions, by Roy F. Baumeister and Kathleen D. Vohs 2004.[4]

"Political bias" and "Commodifying women"[edit]

While not taking direct inspiration, SET holds the same basic principle about sexual relations as the earlier Marxist book Women As Sex Vendors - or, Why Women Are Conservative (Being a View of the Economic - Status of Woman). This contradicts narratives in the blogosphere about SET being a 'capitalist' framework for viewing sexual relations.

Incel Wiki[edit]

A lot of this wiki borrows from SET or accidentally reaches the same conclusions. Particularly language about the principle of least interest, female monopoly on sex, men desiring sex more than women, female self-commodification, female demand of wealth for sex, and female incitement of each others hypergamy to raise the price of sex in a pussy cartel.
