What would we do without NewYork Magazine?
Faced with a question that apparently anguishes more than a few women, the magazine did a survey of advice columnists.
To be fair, the article does not say that it’s a burning question for all women. It limits its scope to “the contemporary casual sex-haver….”
This last phrase tells us that the writer should get a grip on her language before venturing into other, more sensitive realms.
The magazine did not exactly do a survey; it assigned a reporter to read the varied responses that advice columnists have given to the question: Should a woman fake an orgasm?
The responses are as varied as the questions:
Is the practice common or uncommon? Should a woman fake it until she makes it? Should she confess to faking it? Should she be open and honest about all things, including when and if and how she came? Which strategy will lead to more, better ecstasy? And the best: if she fakes it will she be making other women feel inadequate?
A columnist named Cindy addresses the last point:
You are condemning every woman he goes on to sleep with for the rest of his life to be a victim, in her turn, of “But my last girlfriend had six orgasms in a row when I did that!” syndrome. Don’t do that to us. Teach him what really works.
Cindy does not tell us how many women that might be but apparently the number is very high, indeed.
But why should a woman expend time and effort teaching a man how to produce more, better orgasms when he will then use those same skills to enrapture a bevy of beauteous hookups?
Why doesn’t Cindy imagine that this male apprentice might want to continue to use his skills with his teacher?
