On today’s show, Emily is setting the record straight in the world of sex and pleasure.
Self-pleasure, self-love, flicking the bean, jerking off, playing with peter, petting the kitty – yes, I’m talking about good ole masturbation.
There are so many names for the solo act, yet a multitude of people still think of it as their dirty secret. Their secret shame. Personally, I like it’s given name. Although I, too, once felt weird to tell the truth of what happens behind my locked bedroom door, I now proudly proclaim to all that lend their ears that I “Netflix & Chill” with myself on a fairly regular (daily) basis.
When thinking back on grade school’s past, sex education is not the most glamorous times that come to mind. Awkward anatomical diagrams, 30-year-old animations, crossword puzzles filled with vocabulary words like “wet dream” and “fallopian tube”…
The human body is pretty extraordinary. All of its systems working together to keep us alive, trying their best to keep us healthy (even with all the shit we put in our bodies), all so we can continue to delve into the pleasures, pains, and mysteries the world has to offer us.
One of the most complex of these systems is the reproductive – and while scientifically it is for, well, reproduction, it does oh, so much more.
Technology and seemingly everything else is advancing and evolving everyday, but there’s one thing that tends to lag more than the rest: the way we think about sex.
When it comes to sex toys, it seems that the industry is largely tailored to women, and it is. Women’s pleasure is not that easy to come by.
Yes, those of us that identify as females are lucky when it comes to enhanced pleasure because we’ve got so many different gadgets and gizmos to choose from.
Men may have a generally easier time getting off without a hitch, but that doesn’t mean they don’t want a little extra sensation from time to time.
Gather round ye young maidens and lads; let us learn the sacred perfection that is man’s erection! Tis’ actually true that the history of the tremendous phallus is rife with celebration, mystery and adulation. It’s been worshiped and deified for thousands of years. From tip to taint, the anatomy of the penis, it’s cultural significance, and modern day uses, are all pretty extraordinary.
Penis research also reveals some fairly strange mythology and a few less than appropriate examples of object worship from all around the world. Overall, as engorged and hyperbolic as some facts about the peen may seem, it really is a fascinating organ.
At the corner of happy and healthy, chances are you’ll find something a bit more exciting than cold relief tablets from your local Walgreens alone.
Here also stands the prostate—a walnut-sized gland capable of revolutionizing the orgasm as average guys have come to know it. Earning its claim to fame as “the male G-spot”, this pleasure-packed organ, when stimulated, is capable of both strengthening and intensifying climax by a whopping 33%!
