The anatomy of men and women’s private parts is definitely a topic of discussion. When it comes to the female form, men are most fascinated by the clitoris. Scientifically, there have been debates on if this even existed and, if you can believe this, it has been debated for over thousands of years. This certainly reflects the wonderment that many have. The clitoris is associated to orgasms by stimulation during the dirty deed.
To be honest, and this was to our surprise, we ran across women that were not entirely sure of the purpose of the clitoris or that it even had a name. I am sure you have heard the question, “does size matter?” This also leads directly to the other associated question, “the bigger, the better?” The first reference normally is associated to the man’s anatomy, referring specifically to the organ. For appearance purposes only, you would think longer is better, but truthfully, it is not the length that matters the most. Often it is how the tool is used. And experience and knowledge of how to use it will rule size any day.
Now when it comes to the size of a woman’s anatomy we look at the bosom. A woman’s breasts are a wildly cherished and sought after object on a woman. Now you might not believe this, but the “perfect” size for a woman’s breasts is strictly based on opinion. Men prefer a wide range in breast size, as some go with the “bigger is better” notion, while others prefer a smaller chest.
“Spanking the monkey” and “buttering the muffin” topped the list of our favorite references when it comes to another undercover topic that is brought up only with the best of friends. We of course are talking about male and female masturbation. The myth behind this solo act is that, if you do it too much, it could lead to blindness. Well there really isn’t any truth to this claim, it can only occur in the rare instance of a man experiencing temporary blindness as a result of the actual orgasm. If an orgasm is intense, it can cause blood vessels in the eye to become stressed and constrained, causing blinding pressure as well as symptoms related to strokes. A scary thought, but a rarity, so you can let go of your fears that this really happens.
Now here is a freaky fact, did you know that it is possible to be with another so closely during intercourse, that you might actually not be able to separate? There have been known instances of individuals who have had to be medically separated due to the force of their sexual movements. Now, wouldn’t that be an embarrassing 911 call?
Visual stimulation used to be mostly attributed to men versus women; however, several studies have shown that women are just as stimulated visually as men and maybe even more. This leads us to the topic of porn, and if it improves one’s experience individually or with their partner. The viewing of taboo films will often times help both women and men get into the mood, whether alone or together. So if it is something you and your partner are into, grab a DVD and get comfortable.
There are well over fifty sex myths; we have just touched the tip of the iceberg. So if you would like a topic of bedroom conversation, there are many avenues to explore. Enjoy your pleasurable pursuits as you delve more into this abyss of myth, fact, and fiction.
