Re: [evol-psych] News: The Orgasm Gap: The Real Reason Women Get OffLess Often Than Men and How to Fix It
- Thirty-three to 50 percent of women experience orgasm infrequently and are dissatisfied with how often they reach orgasm.
Performance anxiety is believed to be the most common cause of orgasm problems, and 90 percent of orgasm problems appear to be psychological in nature.
-- Orgasmic Dysfunction, Medline Plus Medical Encyclopedia, September 2002.
Only 35 percent of the female population will orgasm during intercourse.
Reasons for failure to climax include: sexual ignorance, sexual anxiety, and fear of letting go.
A sexual response is a complex blend of many physical and psychological variables.
What a woman expects, how she believes she should respond, and how she thinks she should act, will all impact how she experiences, behaves during, and reports her orgasmic event.

Your basic information is pretty up to date.
Edgar prefers young girls, who may indeed be confused about "throbs" until they have their first orgasm.
As Edgar's experiences seem to be with younger girls, and brief as they probably move on from him quickly,
his sexual information is rather pubescent.

I do not confuse my orgasm with just any "throbbing", thank you very much. And as for those multiple orgasms my two partners have had, they themselves were very particular in calling them orgasms. Stronger in some cases than the normal variant. But I/neither of them never managed more than two on one occasion before ejaculating (with orgasm).
It's a simple trick, nothing magical. But it demonstrates that orgasm is not equal to ejaculation in men, just concurrent. And I've experienced men who ejaculate without any orgasm whatsoever.

an orgasm and from this the myth of the multiple female sexual orgasm
- Well you are quite correct that men have plenty of sexual throbs
without ejaculating but almost no man would define those as orgasms
without an ejaculation..

here explaining this..

- No, men do not have to have an orgasm. They only need to ejaculate. There's no need for that to feel like anything in particular.

- The reason is obvious evolutionary theory.

- It's simple evolutionary selection. How obvious is that?
- The way to 'fix it' is just send the women over to me...
