“Doesn’t Every Guy Want…?”

“Doesn’t every guy want to see a girl on her knees scrubbing the bathroom floor with a toothbrush while wearing lingerie?”

That is the quote that runs across the top of this photo of Audrina Patridge in the hard copy of Maxim. I find it interesting that this was the quote that Maxim chose to highlight, and I find it interesting how Audrina worded it.

“Doesn’t every guy want…?” Implying that it’s what every guy *should* want.

“Doesn’t every guy want…?” Implying that every guy wants the same thing.

“Doesn’t every guy want…?” Not “I really enjoy…” Implying that this is something she does because it’s what she thinks every guy wants.

“Doesn’t every guy want…?” Implying that this is something realistic to expect from a partner.

The truth of the matter is, not every guy wants the same thing, women shouldn’t have to do completely absurd things because they think it’s what’s wanted and expected of them, and it’s quotes like this being featured as awesome, sexy things that perpetuate unrealistic expectations of what the ideal woman does.

    I asked my boyfriend this question. He immediately said “um, no.” I asked why. He said, “because it’s disrespectful, and I don’t want to see a woman in a submissive position.” So um, yeah. Obviously we’re not into D/s, but I think it still applies.

    I absolutely agree with you. Not all men are the same. Not all of them want the same thing. My significant other would be horrified to see me on the bathroom floor, cleaning it, with a toothbrush, in lingerie. He would be disgusted. And I love him for that because that is never gonna happen.

    Um, sorry? Does *anybody* clean the floor with a toothbrush? We live in the 21st Century, you would think that a whizzy mop could do the trick!

    To be honest, I think that most heterosexual guys (and maybe people of other persuasions…) would like to see a girl in lingerie no matter what they were doing, but I wouldn’t clean the floor like that in jeans and a t-shirt let alone scantily-clad!

    I feel kind of sorry for her if she *does* do that to get male sexual attention, it’s massively degrading. I suspect she doesn’t though, which just makes the whole statement a little baffling.

    As a representative “heterosexual guy” I have to agree with @Amy. I wouldn’t expect (or want) anyone, of any gender, to clean any bathroom floor with a toothbrush whether they’re wearing a boiler-suit, sexy underwear or nothing. If a pretty girl wants to show herself off to me in her lingerie (or less) that’s fine by me. But you don’t need an excuse — there are many things in life worth showing off, and showing off for, but bathroom floors and toothbrushes aren’t on the list. The comment is so pathetic I can’t even be arsed to call it derogatory to women.

    I just asked my boyfriend this question and his exact response, “Why the bathroom floor? That’s like the dirtiest floor in the house. Maybe the foyer first and then the kitchen. Save the bathroom for last.” He said that with a huge smile on his face because he was joking, obviously. I just found it to be funny because it wasn’t what I had expected him to say.

    If Audrina was serious with that comment, then yeah, it would be a little disturbing. However, without knowing the context in which she said it, it’s hard to tell. They may have highlighted that sentence to catch the readers eye.

    But I do agree with everything you wrote in your closing paragraph.

    Hah! If I started cleaning the bathroom floor with a toothbrush, only wearing my underwear, my boyfriend would think I had gone barking mad..
    I just asked him what he would think about it, and I was right; he said he would have been *very* concerned about my mental health.

    Magazines are so full of crap sometimes!!!!

    I’m sure that if my younger brother read that “doesn’t every guy want.. ” quote, he would have said “of course it’s what every man wants”, after laughing and being annoyingly pervy in that derogatory way and checking out the girl in the photo.
    He’s not a bad guy, he just buys into the rubbish fake culture of music videos and magazines. He says stuff like that automatically without thinking, because he’s been shown that it’s normal and even cool for a guy to say stuff like that.

    I bet though, that if his girlfriend DID start cleaning the bathroom floor with a toothbrush, only wearing her underwear… he’d think she was mad, and would be too occupied trying to figure out how to handle the weirdness of the situation to even consider it being sexy.

    …says as she poses for the shot after a touch-up and posed toothbrush before breaking for the morning’s photoshoot.

    Of course a supermodel would say something like this, because they never actually have to ‘do’ it. They pay people to clean. The erotic part is just the posing for play.

    If she ever had to really clean the bathroom and her man was turned on and wanted to play, I’d like to see how willing she’d be then.

    Oh my god, I would LOVE it if someone cleaned my bathroom floor with a toothbrush. Or even a broom. Or a vacuum. It wouldn’t even have to be the bathroom floor. It could be the kitchen or the living room. The cleaner’s choice. That would be awesome, thanks Audrina!

    Yeah, I’m confused about the toothbrush part. I mean, cleaning in lingerie isn’t really the most fun thing to do in the first place, why make it harder? Ewwww.

    Sadly fashion, the media and music industries are constantly finding ways to undermine the sexuality and worth of women. Pttph!

    Like that Dolce and Gabbana “Gang Bang” ad from last year….goodness.

    We all love us some sexual sitmulation but not to the point of de-valuing females.

    Here’s a link to a compendium of the same, including the D&G one :

    Well, technically it’s a question, albeit largely rhetorical. “Doesn’t every guy want…” followed by a question mark. As you know, I hate generalizations, but technically this would only be one if the headline was “Every guy wants…” followed by a period. Statement, not question.

    (Moral of the story: Don’t ever let a writer with a background in law comment on posts like this or you’ll end up with answers like this!)

    Personally, I have conjured the full story and I like it: She scrubs the floor with a toothbrush, dressed in lingerie… But it’s not until three days later (when he finds a public hair in his teeth) that he realizes she used HIS toothbrush.
