The Big “O”

From the time we’re old enough to read the magazine covers lining the checkout counters, we know the big “O” is important (not that we know what it means). But I wonder how many people actually buy the magazines for the advice.
Okay, I’ll admit I have, but they don’t tell you anything you can’t learn from a steamy romance novel. And if your husband times it wisely (i.e. you’re reading one when he’s in the mood), you’re already in the mood before you’re IN THE MOOD, if you get what I mean.
So my questions are:
Do you buy magazines that promise to tell you the 75 Sex Moves Men Crave (don’t laugh, it was an interesting article), do you buy books on the subject, or do you learn your fancy moves from novels (or none of the above)?
And if you write steamy love scenes, where do you get your inspiration (knowledge) from?

I used to devour those articles because I thought I was defective. Not to be too graphic, but there's only a certain percentage of woman who can achieve "O" from actual intercourse, and I'm not part of that percentage. I thought if I read enough articles, I'd find a trick to change it. Still haven't found it. Guess I'll have to keep reading! (But thank God there's ways around it!)

Gina, in above magazine there's an article on that. I'm with you, though. I'm in that percentage where it doesn't happen that way.

(ps. I have no idea if the position recommended in the magazine works. I haven't tried it out. I only bought the magazine for ideas for blog posts. Usually I just buy teen magazines--if I buy magazines. Call it research.) :)

I think that percentage is bigger than we might imagine because I'd be added to the list too. Oh, the shame. God bless inventive hubbys!

I don't think I've bought a magazine for that information alone, but if I have a magazine in my hands and that is on the cover, sure, I'll flip to that page for a little look see. Still, romance novels are by far more informative!!

I am going to go with romance novels. Some that I have read have been pretty informative. As crazy as this sounds sometimes The Playboy channel has very informative shows. Every once in a while the hubby will point one out for me. Of course, it's strictly research. LOL!

Hmmm, can't say I have read that much about it - that said, I had a VERY overactive imagination as a teen, so I think most of my 'research' comes from hours of farm-girl imaginings over a decade ago - that and 'real-life' I guess :) Brave post though!

I just wrote a humorous post on my blog ( called "20-MINUTE MAN" which advises men to view a woman as a dollar (bear with me)--to find 80 pennies hidden on her body, that it takes at least 20 minutes & it's not an archaeological dig--he's not Indiana Jones & she's not a coin purse. (The 80/20 rule always applies, doesn't it?) :))

Over 80% of woman need clitoral stimulation to orgasm, so don't feel abnormal, my friends. Hollywood and porn only perpetuate the vaginal orgasm (not that it doesn't feel oh so good, of course :))...Not that some women can't climax that way -- it's just not that common.

Communication, toys, self-pleasure -- whatever. Figure out what works for you and then teach your dude.

I used to hide those magazines from my mom as a teen. Same with my harlequin novels ;) Bad girl I was.
