The most important erogenous zone for women is the mind. I'm not talking porn here. I'm talking a woman who is convinced the guy she is with cares deeply for her.

A long time ago I studied a little Tantra Yoga.

Hmmm... I wonder how you'd work that into conversation?

"So you're a Pisces? Me, I'm a Tantric Yoga student, and I get very good grades."

So did a lot of us males. "Let's worship now, Dear". But even at that time, while young and dumb, I knew a scam designed by men, for men, to benefit men, when I saw one.

I agree. Seeing how they came to their conclusions would be interesting. I personally don't believe every gene theory that seem to be offered up on a daily basis. There seems to be a trend toward an almost worship of DNA which I do not think is justified overall.

Since verbs are action words, I'd say orgasm is positively a verb...

I don't think it's all that mysterious. Early in development, the equipment is the same. It's the early exposure to testosterone that causes the male fetus to differentiate as a male; the "default" pathway leads to a female. There is a genetic syndrome where an XY person lacks the androgen receptors and is an infertile female. Since the equipment starts out the same, I expect the nerves and brain connections to be similar, too.

You might be right, but try making that point on 'Oprah'!

A woman's genetic make-up accounts for at least a third of her ability to climax during sex

When ELSE would a woman climax other than some type of sex?

recent investigations have found the contractions it involves can bring sperm closer to the egg, increasing the chance of conception.

Recent investigation? Hasn't this been common knowledge for years and years?

Heh heh I wish I could photoshop well...imagine a curvacious cave chick posing seductively next to a brontosaurus' tale...perhaps one leg thrown over it with article titles such as "Natural Selection: engineering your own personal Species!" plastered on the front cover!

To be serious about this article, it is not mentioned that a man can have an ejaculation not involving an orgasm, so IMHO this article is not very scientific at all.

It is a fixation on sex, an idolatry, a fertility cult that has nothing to do with being fertile...

I once had the experience of reading the Bible out loud to two people, a man and a woman, who were shacking up.

That's from post 23. Anyone else find that to be a bit strange?

I was fortunate to have had a good wife – she would always leave the lid up when she was done.

I grew up with 4 brothers, no sisters ... Mom lost that battle.

Early on in my 26 year (so far) marriage I had to ask myself "is this a ditch I want to die in?" I've been putting the seat back down ever since.

A man in an airplane is sitting next to a young woman. Every so often, the woman sneezes into a handkerchief and shudders violently. The man asks the woman, "Are you ok?" The woman replies, "Yes .... I've been diagnosed with a rare condition. Whenever I sneeze, I have an orgasm." The man asks her, "Are you taking anything for it?" and the woman replies "Pepper."

Does that mean she is having at least a third and maybe 60% of an orgasm? Isn't that called premature articulation, or something like that?

I donno. Then again, maybe she's faking it.

Better Living Thru Chemistry:

I decided to prescribe Wellbutrin, a different class of antidepressant that has shown some ability to counteract sexual dysfunction caused by S.S.R.I.'s.

Little did I know.

Two weeks later, Susan called from her cellphone to say that the antidote was working. While shopping, she said, she spontaneously had an orgasm that had lasted on and off for nearly two hours . She was more delighted than alarmed, but I was stunned. I have had my share of therapeutic surprises, but this was hard to believe.

I knew a woman, who took Wellbutrin, sneezed and had an orgasm and almost drove off the road.

Personally, I'm gonna require DNA testing on all my partners in the future to make sure I get one of those "14 percenters", the 'hot mamas' of the world.

At my age, I could get a stroke (pardon my pun)from trying to deliver with one of the 16% on the other end of the scale.

Romance, phoooey! Ain't Science grand.
