Genetics & orgasms

2005-06-08 01:09:42.762801+00 by Dan Lyke 3 comments

Study says genes play significant role in women's ability to have orgasms.

Too damned drained from WWDC to infer anything from this, just want to roll over and go to sleep.

Mail out 4,037 of these bullets and take another survey.

And as for the women who claim that their sex lives are satisfing without orgasms, I'd be willing to guess that it's primarily the non-orgasmic women who are claiming this. Maybe you don't miss what you never had.

they just aren't "doing" it right (masturbation), lol. take responsibility for your own orgasm...if the man isn't hitting the right spot then TELL him. he is not a mind reader or an orgasm expert.

Please don't presume to speak for others when you speak from your own experience of orgasm. Each of us is different, and many, many women (something like 1/3, as I recall) have significant challenges and difficulties with physiology and responsiveness. For those women, it can be entirely possible to have satisfying sex lives without orgasms. (Much better than the alternative of having miserable sex lives because orgasm is so difficult for them.) I think of that as taking responsibility for their own sexual satisfaction, regardless of what form it takes.
