I was faking it…

one woman’s search for orgasm

Obsession with the female orgasm

with 3 comments

According to a recently released study, covered in the Jan 18 Times article, Wealthy men give woman more orgasms, female orgasms are evolutionary adaptations that program women to seek out the most capable protector and provider as their mates—with rich men obviously representing the most powerful males in our society.

tol-logoOf course, the problem with this research, as is so carefully laid out in Elisabeth Lloyd’s The case of the female orgasm (see my previous post on this topic) is that none of the sex reported in this research specified whether the stated orgasms were the result of assisted or unassisted sex.

Considering that most women rarely orgasm through intercourse alone, its very likely that all those rich man orgasms being reported were not achieved through penal penetration alone.  And if that is the case, then the orgasm in fact has nothing to do with reproduction and the whole evolutionary argument goes out the window.

Which causes me to wonder why evolutionary scientists are so obsessed with proving that the female gender is nothing more than needy, survival-based, simpletons capable of doing little more than follow the orders dictated by their genes?
Or as they article’s author, Jonathan Leake, puts it ‘gold diggers’

  1. I always wonder where these writers get their data from (not you the blogger but the originator of this study).

    I have to disagree with women desiring money… most women tend to desire physical security before financial security.

    And INTJ’s are the poorest… most powerful men in history.

    To many writers out there voicing “theories” that could be argued pretty easily.

  2. No kidding. Having just read Elisabeth Lloyd’s book on the subject its just so irritating to read how the media and researchers spin things to make their data into a sensationalist story.

  3. The female orgasm isn’t necessary for reproduction but it does make it much more likely because a female orgasm retains 50-90% of sperm whereas no orgasm retains 0-50% of sperm. The female orgasm literally sucks sperm through the cervix.

    The purpose of the female orgasm is sexual selection. It’s so a woman can (try) to collect the best possible genes possible.
