Cock Blocking – When Friends Take Action!

cock blocking

It’s natural for our friends to feel the need to voice an opinion on our latest crush/FWB/potential Prince Charming after all they often know us better than we know ourselves. But how about when they take it that one step further and those opinions of theirs turn into actions that stop you from getting lucky? Today rinsers, I am going to be talking about the phenomenon known in the dating world as Cock Blocking.

The urban dictionary defines Cock Blocking as:

‘To hinder, by whatever means, the chances of a male from getting a sexual encounter with a female.’

I personally don’t think that Cock Blocking is necessarily a bad thing although it does sometimes just to serve to dampen our otherwise happy mood.

True friends genuinely do have our best interests at heart and if they are willing to go to such great lengths to stop us getting some bedroom action they probably have some foresight and just know that this encounter is inevitably going to end in tears. Take for instance, that friend who goes into Mother Hen mode and scolds you for not saying a proper goodbye to your friends at the end of the night because you are in a rush to wander into the night with some elderly troll that has been busy all night trying to win you over with his slightly strange arm kisses. Yup, it feels like a bit of a bummer at the time but a few days down the line you’ll see that nothing good would have come out of such an encounter anyway.

Do unto others as you would have them do unto to you. Isn’t that what they always say? We expect a lot from those we hire as wing women/men. However, it’s important to manage these expectations carefully. Sure, a good sidekick can chit-chat with a his ugly counterpart while you get your flirt on with the hottie of the evening and usually they’ll even be willing to make a subtle exit if they think something good is coming your way. But be reasonable – don’t yell at your wing person in the street just because they won’t let you borrow some cash money to pay for a flight to Australia to hook-up with some dude you just met. Remember however sexy he may be and however despo you are for some bedroom action, it’s never worth losing a longer-term friendship over.

Even though it can be annoying at times, especially if you are going through a severe sex drought, try to put yourself in the shoes of your Cock Blocker friend and don’t hate on them too much. They are not putting themselves in harm’s way for nothing (unless of course they are a frenemy who is simply after your latest ‘love’). Think of it like this – it’s probably not that they want to stop you from having that itch scratched, it’s more that they want to protect you from the emotional aftermath. And even if you are one of those WISO/MISOs who don’t think that sexual relations necessarily have any sentimental value, maybe the Cock Blocker’s actions are simply saving you from an STD or the possibility of being burdened with a unwanted bundle of joy nine months down the line.

Darling Rinsers please share your best/worst Cock Blocking stories in the comments below. Has a Cock Blocker ever saved you from a fate worse than death or should we simply be left to make all our own mistakes in the bedroom department?

    Interesting Post. I had a work mate who once was a ladies man and on a company function was cocked blocked from a co worker who wanted a itch scratched badly…I think it happened because both were too drunk and might not have enjoyed their ..encounter. They were attrached to each other without the drinks but it came out more at that function.
    I worked with a female coworker who was known as the wrecker …oh yes she would drink and when she did she came on to any guy…saw this first hand and at a Christmas party she wrecked one relationship , got a single guy so turned on he could think straight for a week and a marriage was on the rocks and it was the wife who cock locked her husband …ouch!

    Eeeek…cock blocking is most def necessary in the work environment. Office parties can get pretty messy and dealing with the morning after not fun…

    No there are definitely times when cb has to be done in the name of friendship. When watching your friend hook-up with a totally bad idea of a guy is like watching a car crash about to happen.

    I think cock-blocking is neither good nor bad, just depends on the situation. If your friend is beyond wasted and is about to make a bad decision, cock-block. If you’re jealous your friend might be getting laid and you’re not, no cockblocking. I’ve had times when I WISHED someone had CB’ed me, and times when a friend has jokingly CB’ed me and it blew up in my face.
