Ways women orgasm

Are you interested in the ways women orgasm?  If so, why?  If not, why not?!

There are a lot of myths about female orgasm and little understanding about female sexual arousal.  The truth is that all women are NOT created equal in this area.  Each woman has distinctly different patterns of arousal and needs to understand her own body so that she can bring herself to orgasm.  Once a woman is familiar with her sexuality in intimate ways and what her sexual preferences are, she can then communicate them to her partner.

Good sex lasts minutes, not hours!

How long do you think sex should last?

In a USA Today article, “A survey of sex therapists concluded the optimal amount of time for sexual intercourse was 3 to 13 minutes. The findings, to be published in the May issue of the Journal of Sexual Medicine, strike at the notion that endurance is the key to a great sex life.” Sex Therapy Los Angeles

We are bombarded by stereotypes of what film makers and magazine editors think sex should look like.  On the other side of that is porn and all it’s ideas about sex.  All of these forces can be shaming and diminishing and leave people unable to trust what is true for them.

If you worry about what “normal” is when it comes to your sex life, you might want to know that, according to Marianne Brandon, a clinical psychologist and director of Wellminds Wellbodies in Annapolis, Md., “most people’s sex lives are not as exciting as other people think they are.”

When do you know if sex is a problem?

There are some heated debates over whether sex addiction exists or whether it’s a strategy to turn sexual expression into something shameful, bad and downright wrong.  The people who don’t believe in sex addiciton believe that the people who treat sex addiction are out to create profitable businesses.  The people who do believe that sex addiction is a real problem see the porn industry as the major profiteers. 

The anti-sex addiction people believe that the pro-sex addiction people are out to create a culture of fear.  They believe if the pro-sex addiction people succeed then sexual expression will be feared and the use of pornography, homosexual sex, premarital sex, and other sexual behaviors will be shut down. Sex Addiction Los Angeles

Do you think that sex addiciton is real?  Or do you think it’s a construction to make people scared; to give up pornography, pleasure and the right to sexual expression?

How do you know if you are a sexual free spirit or if sex is causing you problems?
