Despite their best efforts in my middle school sex ed classes, I eventually learned The Big Secret Republican Dudes Don’t Want the Children to Know: sex feels awesome. Why else do you think dogs keep humping things long after they’re fixed? Biology shmiology, sex is all about the pleasure for a lot of us.
This brings us to today’s question: When did you first learn about pleasure? From where did you hear/learn about it?
I’m slightly ashamed to admit I first learned about the feel good factor and orgasms from stolen copies of lady mags from my big sister’s stash as a young’un. “50 ways to orgasm,” “The G-spot secret that will have you screaming,” “Blah blah blah, come 100 times in a row,” you know the drill. While Cosmo may not be the most reliable source for a gal to first hear about orgasms, it certainly was informative for my 10-year-old self. I’m actually really glad I stumbled upon those magazines years before actually having any sexual contact because it made me aware that sex is supposed to feel good for all involved. Without those raggedy lady mags, who knows how long I would’ve gone on believing the abstinence-only sex ed trope of pleasureless, for-babies-only idea of sex. I shudder at the thought.
What say you, Oh Great Commenters?
