Didn’t get her off? Don’t care? Good. According to a scientist, giving your woman too many orgasms can be a bad thing because it makes her expectations too high. The theory says that if you blow her mind often enough, she’ll grow to expect an orgasm, and nobody needs that kind of pressure (agreed). They call it the “orgasm imperative.”
I know what I’m saying next time I find a girl nice enough to let me get naked and flop around on top of her. “Yeah, of course I only lasted 15 seconds. I don’t wanna set the bar too high right off the bat! Ever hear of the ‘orgasm imperative’? Duh.”
But according to research, having an orgasm every time you have sex might not be such a great thing – for your relationship or your sex life.
You see, if you have an orgasm every single time you have sex, you’re going to start expecting them to always happen. This can lead to viewing orgasms as a sign that you’ve been ‘successful’ at sex, leading to pressure not only to make sure you climax, but also to ensure your partner achieves orgasm, too.
If they don’t, you can end up feeling like a failure.
The resulting belief that orgasms are an essential part of sex – and that if you don’t achieve one, you’re doing it wrong – is called the ‘orgasm imperative’. Scientists argue that this is a very, very bad thing because of all that negative pressure.
I love these bullshit “studies.” No trials. No evidence. Just a scientist with a wife who he hasn’t made cum in years telling him, “It’s okay, it still felt really, really good!” God bless girls who do that. And God bless this scientist for doing mental gymnastics to turn his wife’s dissatisfied reassurances into a goddamn medical theory. Made me feel better about the dry sheets in my own bedroom — at least for a little while..
