I Give, And I Give, and I Give....

...and yet you people are never satisfied.

*Sheesh*

In the Princess' Inbox:

"Viggo Mortensen?"

"VIGGO MORTENSEN???"

Never let it be said that we didn't resist temptation. In our defense, let it be noted that we held out for 5 days:

Foreplay may be overrated according to a survey based on 2,300 women, which found that it has little or no significance when it comes to the likelihood of having an orgasm.

The duration of intercourse – 16.2 minutes on average – is the clincher, according to the research. The findings suggest that sex therapists, who emphasise the value of foreplay, may have that been getting it wrong.

This was obviously written by a man trying to get back into the living room before the 3rd quarter starts. Be that as it may, it's not hard (heh.... she said... oh, nevermind) to imagine how the discussion drifted off track and onto the subject (which the Princess for the longest time ignored in the noble and high minded fashion she desperately wants the readership to believe her capable of) of dreamy movie stars.

Be that as it may, we found this a bit odd:

The researchers point out that 16.2 minutes is considerably longer than reported in American studies, where intercourse was found to last on average seven minutes.

They added: "It could be that this reflects, a greater appreciation of intercourse and sensuality by Europeans than by Americans."

What the??? bizarre. Here's another one for the grist mill. How often should you have sex for optimum health? (and don't you just *love* these things? No matter what you answer, you'll probably end up feeling bad about yourself.)

Whatever. At any rate, Viggo Mortensen was the last straw. Some things simply will not stand.

Or so we've been told.

The problem with that study is that it is tying foreplay (the process) with orgasm (the result).

And while that very well may be an important connection to make, one should never lose sight of the pleasure of doing something because it is fun and not because a result is expected.

And sixteen minutes? Even worse seven minutes? Why is it these studies never include me? Perhaps they are interviewing a bum sample. Or maybe more people need to indulge in vitamin supplements.

Amen! :D

And as far as 16 or 7 or whatever... That's an average. Just think of the poor people who make than an average...

I'm wondering how many of these poor women couldn't reach Shangri-La because some moron had an egg timer going on the nightstand...

Relaxing, that.

Paging BillT in Iraq, paging BillT in Iraq; there is a new discussion at "VC" about sex and relationships.

You're needed.

And I can say if DL Sly hasn't already commented, she would say,"There's nothing here that visqueen couldn't improve."

Carry on, as if you needed any encouragement.

Actually Mike I was more a fly on the wall than a participant :p It was just that the Viggo Mortensen thing put me over the top.

Someone has to defend American manhood.

Nope. Not going there. Wouldn't be prudent.

Well it's my position *cough* that American manhood is firm enough to stand on its own. While I'm sure we all do appreciate you rising to our defense, even in the face of stiff competition, we can stand erect in our own defense.

See, and I got through that without a single Freudian Penis... SLIP!!! I meant slip!!!

Posted by: MikeD at November 14, 2008 11:32 AM

Say want you want about foreplay, but Viggo Mortensen was really good as Gollum.

Posted by: spd rdr at November 14, 2008 12:14 PM

Paging BillT in Iraq...You're needed.

Obviously.

Only a 16 minute average -- pfui -- it is to laugh. And for once, the comment stream didn't degenerate *into* one of sex and relationships.

The degeneration didn't start until the bum sample reference...

Sounds like somebody *else* has tripped and pole-vaulted across the parking lot...

Let me get this straight - it took a study to find that 4play had little or no significance when it comes to the likelihood of having an orgasm?

I meet the big O everytime I have sex, with our without 4play. How do you mess with 100%?

My guess is most men fall in the same statistical category.

;)

That's like the headline I saw one time that said the death rate was higher for black men with heart disease. How? Is their death rate higher than 100%? Because that is the death rate of whites, with or without heart disease.

Where in the helk is Sister Mary when you need her?

*sigh*

Oh well.

WHAP! WHAP! WHAP!!!

If I were cruising, dollink, the Unit would have some stiff competition...

I don't go cruising. It's a waste of gas.

Since when does the blog princes 'rull' her eyes?

Ever since Sly's remark about visualizing me in a red mini.

To rull one's eyes means to scrub them with Lysol and 10-grit sandpaper.

Posted by: BillT at November 15, 2008 05:24 PM

Actually, it was electric blue, Thong Jockey.

I recommend Southern Comfort as your scrubbing solution. Burns just as bad, and when the tears roll down your face (and there will be tears), they're more palatable.

The *thong* was electric blue (as was my anatomy after you tazered me) -- the mini was *red*, m'dear DysLexic Sly.

I have the blackmail -- uhhhhhhh e-mail -- documentation...

Did you ever figger out what NIMBY stands for?

'Not In My Back Yard.'

Sort of what is going on here now...

You can run, but you can't hide.

Oh, wait. You can.

Never mind.

Always with the sex and relationships!

"How are they related?"

This is about the only connection I could find.

Actually, the two figures I've seen for "insertion to ejaculation" is 2.5 minutes and 5 minutes.

I always wondered how women didn't have orgasms prior to that knowledge. I've usually found women to take about plus or minus 10 mins, with occasional exceptions, so, if that's correct, I guess it's no surprise.

*Popping popcorn into mouth*

Mmmmpppffftthhh :p

Mumble mumble :)

No one ever said we ladies were fast. We take our time. We dawdle, even. But then some things - like you men - are worth taking time to enjoy.

Posted by: Cassandra at November 19, 2008 10:50 AM

Nah, it may start out at ten minutes, but the intervals get shorter after the first few hours.
