Well, hello, there! This month on Persephone, you’ve been challenged (by yours truly) to have at least 52 orgasms in 2012 (if that’s your thing, more if you like), and you’ve been challenged elsewhere to put a vibrator in your nightstand drawer already. Well. Have you?
Since we’re closing out the 2nd week of 2012, if you’re aiming for 52 orgasms I am hoping that, by now, you’ve had two.
Two orgasms, that’s not so hard, is it? (LOL.)
If you haven’t achieved two… hell, if you haven’t started making your O-face at all yet this year, there’s still time! Doing them weekly is fine, but if you want to go on hiatus from orgasm-having (I guess? I don’t know why you would want to do that, but if you do) feel free to catch up later in the year.
I’m right on track with partnered orgasms, having had one just last night in celebration of workplace success. I believe in the power of an orgasm to be a great method of celebration.
Last week in the comments, someone brought up the fact that not everyone is able to orgasm, and I think that’s a valid point. I would also venture to guess that this challenge is not for you, or at least, not as it’s stated; but not having orgasm doesn’t mean you should restrict yourself from having sexytimes; lots of good sex doesn’t involve orgasm at all. Lots of self-stimulation feels good even without shooting for climax. I think, like a fitness challenge or any other kind of blog-sponsored challenge, adapt the contest for whatever your needs and interests are, and go for that. It’s sex! It’s supposed to be fun and enjoyable and a source of pleasure for you.
Anyway, whether your goal is orgasms or just getting it on with some frequency, let us know how you’re doing! Share your frustrations; I hear there are cheerleaders out here in the sexy wilderness for whom 52 yearly orgasms is a laughably small goal, and I know they will be lurking in the comments to provide inspiration and support.
