Are their any versions of songs like 'Wild Mountain Thyme' from the woman's point of view? ie deflowering of male virgins or ruining their reputations?

The young man doesn't come off too well in 'The Trees They Do Grow High'. It all seems to have been a bit too much for him.

In 'The Game Of All Fours', while the man doesn't start out exactly innocent, he certainly doesn't emerge with his reputation (for card-playing ot whatever) intact.

"Deflowering" male virgins didn't ruin their reputation, it enhanced it.

yes the 'Trees grow high...' but it was the action of the father that caused the problem wasn't it marrying her off to a boy too young and we're not told how he dies (war i suppose) interesting that the most appropriate anwer is 'No' and who says there aren't gender differences!!!

Some Child ballads are possibilities. The Jewess' Garden or Judy Henske's version - Love Henry or Henry's in the well, who put him in?

I wouldn't expect to see them because

a) the "deflowering" of a male virgin was (to some extent is) a ritual of passage rather then the "ruination" of a maiden. (The old double standard that is always being ranted about)

b) rather then ruining his reputation the seduction of a youth/lad/young man would enhance his reputation.

c) There ARE songs I've seen about men being unable to "perform" - and *those* I would suspect are the equivilant to the "ruined maiden" songs.

The only one I can think of is Alison Gross, but it's not what you would call seduction.

Well, there's Larry McMurtry's The Last Picture Show (the coach's wife) which is a good movie and a better book, but I suspose it's irreverent to offer up something that isn't a song.

What about "Whistle Daughter, Whistle" and all all the "Don't let me die an Old Maid" songs and although it's modern there's always "Johnny and Gertrude" which ends up "'cos mummy says as long as I've got one of these - I can get one of those ANYTIME!".
