Great Health, Good Relationships, Fantastic Sex and A Wonderful Life!
The Route to Sexual PleasureThis blog is about relationships and everything that goes with them. Sex is a big part of any relationship and we need to address some issues which arise between men and women in a sexual relationship.
Sex is one of the most difficult areas of human interaction, because our vulnerability is at its highest, and our expectations of pleasure are also at their highest. But I think itís fair to say that in general, women are far more disappointed with sex than men.
While it probably is an exaggeration to say, as Woody Allen once did, that ďthere is no such thing as a bad orgasm, but some are better than othersĒ, the truth of the matter is that statistics seem to suggest that 85% of men reach orgasm during a sexual experience with their woman, compared to only 45% of women.
You might be surprised that the percentage of men reaching orgasm is only 85%. I would put it at much higher, something like 95%. But that isnít the point. The point is that most women donít reach orgasm during sexual intercourse with their man.
Sure, this could be choice Ė it could be that women donít feel the need to reach orgasm in same way that men do. But the reality is probably that women are giving way to menís desire to reach orgasm and havenít yet realized their own right to enjoy as much sexual pleasure as their man.
You see, finding pleasure can be a route to sexual harmony Ė but it can also be a route to a better relationship outside the bedroom. Thatís why itís essential for men to learn how to satisfy women, and also in particular, to understand the dynamics of orgasm in a couple.
If itís true that only 45% of women reach orgasm during a sexual encounter, then men need to readjust their thinking. Sex is not purely about male pleasure, or a few minutes of foreplay, quick penetration, and quick ejaculation. Especially when male orgasm and ejaculation signals the end of sexual interaction.
What women say they want is foreplay which lasts between 20 and 30 minutes, amd intercourse which lasts between 10 and 13 minutes. In this situation, women would almost always have an orgasm.
The medicalization of anorgasmia is one of the most notorious and unfair things to happen to female sexuality in recent times. The view that women donít reach orgasm because there is something wrong with them is pernicious and foolish.
To medicalize lack of female orgasm in terms of something like ďhypoactive sexual desire disorderĒ gives licence to pharmaceutical companies to come up with a medication which can then be marketed as a solution for a ďdiseaseĒ. Yet this disease is one which has been invented with the collusion of the medical profession.
The reality is that most women reach donít reach orgasm during lovemaking because they donít have enough foreplay and they are not aroused enough when penetration starts.
But the real issues is that most women need clitoral stimulation to reach orgasm. And there are plenty of ways of providing it during lovemaking Ė whether it be by manual stimulation, vibrator, or by the woman finding a sexual position in which she can rub her body against her man in such way that her clitoris is stimulated.
To be blunt, women are not getting orgasms because men are not arousing them, and because women are not insisting that lovemaking takes a form in which it is possible for a woman to reach orgasm.
So how should we bring this about? Education would be a good place to start, which is the objective of the website that you can see here Ė itís all about ways in which men and women can enjoy sexual pleasure and in particular how a man can satisfy a woman with orgasm during intercourse.
Itís ironic that men think itís somehow their duty to please a woman in bed. If you look at the number of queries on the Internet for this very question, youíll certainly see how many men seem to think this is their role in intercourse or sexual interaction with women. Yet at the same time they manifestly fail to provide the sexual pleasure which they know women want.
I guess this is really all about gender differences. Men have a high sex drive, and pretty much as soon as they are aroused, they want to make love and, to be blunt, they want to ejaculate. Sex does not have to be a prolonged experience to be satisfying to a man. Of course, that may be true for a woman as well Ė but the reason women prefer longer lasting sex is because longer foreplay enables them to become aroused enough to reach orgasm.
In the face of such apparently intractable differences between the sexes, the question arises of what would be the best way forward for couples to have mutual sexual pleasure. It comes down to the intention of the man to satisfy the woman, but at the same time it comes down to his intention to be a powerful man who can give her an orgasm, while delaying his own pleasure for long enough to ensure she satisfied.
Orgasmic satisfaction isnít hard to achieve when a womanís sufficiently aroused Ė so itís really important that men get their heads around the fact that women can reach orgasm just as easily as men, but they take longer to do it.
Even women themselves accepting this deceitful concept of the ďorgasm gapĒ are implicitly justifying the current status quo in the world of sexual relationships between men and women.
Within a loving relationship, or within a long-term relationship, women are entitled to equal experience of orgasm as men. Hopefully by changing the way we think about sex, and changing our expectations about the dynamics of sex which we currently enjoy, this can be brought about. That way we can enjoy a much more orgasmic sex life, and womenís frequency of orgasm will be similar to menís.
