"10 Surprising Facts About Orgasms" Mini Series #5

Googling around about female orgasm, I quickly found an online Woman's Day (of I-kinda-get-it-confused-with-Redbook fame) article called "10 Surprising Facts about Orgasm." Thus, the "10 Facts Series" was born so I could share my thoughts on each of these 10 list items - 1 per day for 10 days. Check HERE to see all that have been done so far. Now enjoy number 5.
5. Orgasm gets better with age.
Sure, there are plenty of things to gripe about when it comes to age, but your sex life may actually improve—specifically the quality and frequency of orgasm, reports Dr. Herbenick. “Orgasm becomes easier with age,” she says. “As an example, while 61 percent of women ages 18 to 24 experienced orgasm the last time they had sex, 65 percent of women in their 30s did and about 70 percent of women in their 40s and 50s did.” Though the survey didn't indicate why orgasms come easier with age, we can assume that as women become more sexually experienced, they have more confidence in the bedroom and therefore enjoy themselves more. Additionally, the trust and intimacy that most women experience in long-term relationships can help improve sexual confidence as well.

Well, you might be used to me griping a lot about these things, but this actually seems fairly legit. I mean, particularly since we women come of age and live in a culture that largely ignores and disrespects our clitoris and thus create a huge uphill battle for orgasm that we must self-consciously (cause all the women we see in movies and read about and books seem to be able to orgasm easily from a good banging) trudge through.So, I basically agree with this. By the time a woman's 40 and had 3 kids, she might just be done with doing shit that isn't that great just to be nice - like have sex without an orgasm. So, she just might be more likely to say, "Fuck it. You go on and keep doin' your bangin' on me. I'm gonna pull out this vibrator and have a little fun while you're at it." Or maybe the words "lick it" just roll of the tongue easier after years of being with someone who has finally convinced her he doesn't mind doing just that.

Now, let's just hope in the future women don't need 20 years of mediocre, often unorgasmic sex before we are lucky enough to break the spell of our terribly misleading and confusing sexual culture. Maybe in the future, the young gals will be getting theirs too.
