Most people will have seen a comment at some stage about how much money men spend on sex through dinners, presents, flowers etc.
Cactus Kate has reversed the equation and calculated how much money a woman spends on looking beautiful for men. Her calculations are:
Hair monthly (basic not “hair extensions”) $300 per month = $3600
Waxing and other beauty treatments $100 per month = $1200
Massage, pedicures etc $100 per month = $1200
Make-up/skin cleansers/toners and moisturisers = $300
Annual clothing spend on clothes you only wear out to meet men or with your man = $3000
Personal trainer/gym fees/education and reading material = $300 per month = $3600
Shoes. I consider it compulsory to spend lots of money on fabulous shoes = $2000
Phone calls/Drinks/lunches and dinners with girlfriends to drown your sorrows of bad relationships ie. therapy = $500 per month = $6000
Condoms & contraceptive pills (because lets face it – men over 30 years old totally suck at carrying rubbers) = $400 annually
Sex toys (again men have no clue so girls have to buy – Kiwigirl I am calling you out, you can add a zero here) = $500 annually
Pregnancy and STD checks (compulsory for anyone with half a brain and lets face it – the man doesn’t have to worry about being pregnant in the morning) = $250 per annum
So my rough estimation is a cost of $22,050 annually spent on looking and feeling good in the most part for men.
Kate goes on to say that if she gets sex only once a week then women are paying $424 per bonk, so men should stop whiming about their costs.
Her final advice:
So men, next time you take a single woman to dinner with the intent of asking her home afterwards, don’t ask her to split the bill.
Just shut the fuck up and pay.
Other financial words of wisdom from Kate have been how you don’t book her to fly economy class if you are flying business class!
