Do you remember in 5th grade when the school nurse showed up in your gender-divided classroom to offer the most embarrassing lecture of your life? Brutal. "This is a safe place where you can ask questions," she'd say. Ha! Yeah right! My lips were sealed.
So we waited until the questions burned enough to ask our girlfriends. But what did they know? My best friend, you know who you are, (*ahem, Annie*) thought that sex was french kissing. She called me sobbing after her first kiss because she thought she might be pregnant.
Well my darlings, let me introduce you to the "school nurse" of adulthood. Shere Hite. Shere Hite is the author of The Hite Report: A National Study of Female Sexuality.
Hite builds upon biological studies of sex by Masters and Johnson and by Alfred Kinsey. Masters and Johnson pioneered research into the nature of the human sexual response and the diagnosis and treatment of sexual disorders and dysfunctions.
Questions answered at long last.
“I need to talk with other women about sex but it is so
impossible. I am embarrassed about my not having orgasms
and wonder whether my friends share this problem.... I can’t
expose thatmuch of myself in the face of such judgments and
can’t stand the pity.”
Don't worry anonymous commenter on page 205 from The Hite Report, there are answers to be had.
Was that an orgasm? Do I look funny? How do I increase my libido?
I will refer to the Hite Report more in future posts so, unless your burning questions can't wait to be answered, you don't have to buy the book :)
