BoingBoing’s *other* simmering sexpot David Pescovitz pointed me at a post he made today about the NY Times article re: the crazy lady who wrote a book about female orgasm: Secret purpose of the female orgasm.
My reply: > Oooh! She’s way off. Male nipples *totally* serve a purpose. 😉
> This part is sad: “Since so few women do…”
> Worse, she seems to think that fun is not linked to evolution (how
else would the cannabis plant have evolved?) and she seems to be
operating on that tired old “default sex” theory in embryonic
development. Quelle dinosaur. This is the attitude that since embryos
start out female until they get the “it’s a boy” chemical cocktails,
that female is the “default” sex, that the clitoris is some sort of
inferior vestigal penis. Default, like what you’re stuck with until
you change your settings. Hardly. We are clearly the superior machine.
We do not have an erectile tissue shutoff valve, allowing us to get as
many hard-ons, and have as many orgasms, as we can handle. Seems like
a prime evolutionary tool to me…
> I’m also guessing (wildly!) that she excluded lesbian sexual contact
and intersex people from her data. I’d like to take her to task. Fuzzy handcuffs not included. Thank you for sending me this…
So I’m calling “shennanigans!” on Dr. Elizabeth A. Lloyd. I wonder, did she study women who *don’t* come from clitoral stimulation, and did she explore the female anal orgasm? What about these women, are they evolutionary retards, left for the wolves of natural selection? Of course, I’m thinking of Chloe. Were sexually empowered women in her study, or women who have discovered radically hot sex after childbirth? Of course the female orgasm “is for fun.” But suggesting this, in this context, is like saying female orgasms are frivolous, like all “female” things. And that our sexual nerve pathways are just penile sloppy seconds.
So here’s my theory for the good doctor: You better fucking believe the female orgasm is evolutionarily necessary. Because if we have sex and I don’t have one, I’ll kill you.
Things almost as yummy and good as the wine I’m drinking right now: David Lynch daily weather report, cool dolls I found for my Fleshbot day job today, Tentacle Eye, tie me up with this, DIY sex doll with towels and porn (agh! I hope I go blind!), welcome back Daze, Cult of Mac nominated me as their poster girl, Cuddlefish: rollergirl obsessed, hey — I have a Honda motorcycle and a gun, too!
Holy crap. I just opened an envelope containing six book contracts. I’m going to go get more wine.
