fact or fiction
Learn the truth about common myths. Are they fact or fiction? In-depth explanations of the questions everyone asks and few know the answer to.
What Is a Multiple Orgasm?
There often, as a woman, seems to be an unconscious rejection of the possibility of having more than one orgasm. If men can only have one, perhaps it seems greedy, aggressive, or challenging to want more when with a man. That was a very 20th century perspective uncovered in the informative Hite Report by Shere Hite. Perhaps a woman who does desire more, is "unnatural" or a "nymphomaniac." More Mad Men era hyperbole started by men who probably didn't want to work too hard.
Is Valentine's Day Really About Love?
Whether or not you hail Valentine’s Day as the most sacred of holidays or a mere Hallmark sales ploy, February 14th means something to everyone. If you have a significant other, you devote the weeks prior to dropping not-so-subtle hints about what is and isn’t a respectable token of affection, and if you don’t, you either wallow in solitude or initiate an emergency mission to find a V-day date, and fast. You leave no dating app unswiped, no party un-flirted, no eyelash un-batted.
Why I Walked
It’s our anniversary. Celebrating two years together and I should be ecstatic. Wait, no that’s not the word. Maybe surprised? No that doesn’t sound good. Maybe the word is happy.
Shere Hite On the Importance of Masturbation
"Masturbation has helped me to know how to have an orgasm, and to recognize the stages of arousal I go through." My mother recently gave me a book she said changed her life in the late 1970s. Masturbation, in a very real sense, is one of the most important subjects discussed in The Hite Report book by Shere Hite, and was a cause for celebration because it is such an easy source of orgasms for most American women. Many women in the study said they could masturbate and orgasm with ease in just a few minutes. Of the 82 percent of women who said they masturbated, 95 percent could orgasm easily and regularly whenever they wanted. Many women used the term "masturbation" synonymously with orgasm: women assumed masturbation included orgasm.
History of Sperm Banks
A Midwestern grandfather makes a deposit at the sperm bank to assure the continuance of his family name should his son prove sterile. In the East, a 69-year-old bachelor millionaire stores semen so that should his fertility decline as he ages, he will still be able to marry and produce an heir with a presumably younger woman. And a young man is to be castrated for cancer of the testes. His surgeon advises him to store his sperm.
Absurd Asian Women Relationship Stereotypes
In 1980, interracial marriage was fairly rare in the United States, with only a small percentage of all marriages occurring between people of different races. Nowadays, the intermarriage rate is nearly 15 percent overall, but 29 percent of the interracial marriages are among Asian females. According to studies, when Caucasian men marry Asian women, the couple is twice as likely to both be college educated and will make on average 20 percent more money than a white-white couple. Sociologists talk about all sorts of possible explanations including the desire of Asians to assimilate, the increasing acceptance of interracial marriage, and the sexualization of Asian women as docile and submissive. All these explanations are probably wrong. Research shows many caucasian men attracted to Asian women have a very stereotypical view of dating Asian women. The research further shows that what men tend to do is let there particular needs or desires manifest themselves as perceived stereotypes of women that they are actually just physically attracted to. But these men sure do make Asian women out to sound like the perfect partner for your average Joe.
History of Chastity Belts
Is your money safely locked up at the bank? Then why isn’t your vagina locked up as well? From Mad Max to Robin Hood: Men In Tights, this historical garment has been appearing in pop culture in the 20th and 21st centuries. It has also become a popular accessory for BDSM enthusiasts, with a wide variety of both male and female chastity belts available from sex toy manufacturers. In fact, the chastity belt that society knows and portrays did not actually exist in days past. Instead, they are a myth drawn from allegories of purity and faithfulness which were exaggerated throughout time by historians who have the same fantasies as many men—fantasies of female sexual appetites so extensive that only lock and key can contain.
Intimate Behavior Signals
The female form bristles with genital substitutes. The mouth, red lips and all, is really pinch-hitting for the vagina, and so is the navel which, in modern woman, is becoming increasingly slit or vulva-like. By the same token, the breasts are biologically developed copies of the buttocks. They send out powerful sexual signals when a woman is standing up.
Do Body Stereotypes Define Sexuality?
I'll bet you've spent a lot of time looking at women's bodies, and will continue to do so. Every woman has a unique personality, but some personalities have been found to correlate to aspects of the body. Stereotyping is generally a bad idea, but it is best to understand the perception of stereotypes if we are ever to eliminate them.
Why Every Woman Wants an Alpha Male
I never put much thought into what being an alpha male consists of. Honestly, it wasn’t until I became addicted to my kindle and started reading hundreds upon hundreds of erotic and romance novels that I really began to appreciate and understand this hot ass, in charge, take no prisoners type of man. When I used to fantasize about a man it would usually involve some baby-faced asshole with a lot of tattoos and a shitty attitude, but now, as I have gotten older, that imaginary arrogant dick wad is no longer able to dampen my panties. What turns me on these days is a confident, hard working, respectable, and stable man (who of course is still colorfully tatted and a filthy bedroom talker, duh).
Michael Myers Syndrome
Show of hands--and be honest...you ever wanted to kill somebody just because you'd been going through an extended dry spell without sex? I don't mean this as a tongue-in-cheek sort of query. I mean it as, have you ever felt a sincerely disturbing urge to go nuts on somebody simply out of sexual frustration?
Vasectomy is Never Having to Say You’re Sorry
My friend Steve is the bravest man I know. This is his story. I simply helped him put his words to paper. He has been married for 25 years to a wonderful woman, Jane. God bless them both.
