Female Orgasm Problems - A Head Case Says Cuntim


Sad Woman Bed Orgasm

I don't know much more than any other guy about a woman's ability to orgasm. Truthfully, I've never thought of myself as a Lothario or great lover. I'm honest, compassionate and hopefully do my share of satisfying my wife. If not, then I thank her publicly now for her great acting. What a kind, believable soul she is.

But for those of you men out there that want to know more about pleasing your spouse, or women out there who find their expectations and climax to be less than hoped, there's some explanation and perhaps solutions. According to LiveScience:

The old adage that a woman's biggest sexual organ is between her ears may be true, according to new research that finds that a lack of erotic thoughts during sex is linked to the trouble some women have reaching orgasm.

Women who reported more trouble reaching orgasm during sex also had more automatic negative thoughts during the act. These negative thoughts included everything from those lacking erotic imagery to thoughts of sexual failure and sexual abuse.

Again, I'm no expert. But take some advice from a person who is... Marta Xavier Cuntim, a clinical psychologist in Portugal, told LiveScience.

Pardon my snickering at her name. I think it ranks up there in irony at least, with a man getting advice on erectile dysfunction by Dr. Dick Boner, Dr. King Stiffy or Dr. Rex Pussy.

About one in four women experiences difficulty reaching orgasm for months at a time, and the inability to orgasm is the second-most-common female sexual complaint after lack of desire.

From these statistics, I realize this is a real medical problem and I don't mean to diminish the frustrations many women -- and men -- go through attempting normal sexual bliss. And if there's hopes and cures for these problems, they should be spoken about openly and generously with their respective partners. Communication can be sexy and even arousing if it's honest. But I have a little juvenile streak in me that couldn't help but comment on this name game.

I apologize and shamefully confess that I'm a direct descendant of the Roman noble, Cassius Tiny Dickus. Okay. Now I've said it. I'll take my little boy toy and go sit in a corner for my time out punishment. If I'm lucky, I'll be joined there by Ms. Cuntim. You never know. Maybe she can teach me a trick or two.


Bonus Cartoon of the Day- Priorities





About that youth vote... SQUIRREL!


I taught in high school classrooms for years and had a short stint at a community college. There's been a disturbing trend that kicked in from the time I started, back in 1997 or so, one that can affect this election: Short attention spans aka Squirrel! Syndrome. And the spans keep getting shorter.

It's not just my observation, not by a long shot. Not only has every teacher I've spoken to been alarmed by the same phenomenon, but countless other adults have all told me they've noticed the same evolving problem, and we all noticed that it appears to be tied to one thing: The increased addiction to electronic devices.

Don't get me wrong, I am a huge fan of high techitude, and I use it regularly, However, unintended side effects on young people may include gas, bloating, dizziness, dry mouth, and drowsiness the inability to concentrate for longer than a couple of minutes, becoming easily distracted, and difficulty with: clear verbal communication, active listening, critical thinking, speaking and writing in full, well-thought-out sentences, grammatical correctness, reading analog clocks, identifying basic emotions, cursive writing, and following through on well-intended promises.

That last part, those pesky well-intended promises, is what concerns me the most during this election season.

The kids I taught were sweet, bright, funny, kind (for the most part), caring, committed, and enthusiastic. But as time went on, as smart phones grew in popularity, as students became more dependent on computers, as iPods became more prevalent, as texting became their preferred form of communication, their collective ability and willingness to converse and listen at length (literally longer than about three minutes) and follow through on promises and commitments decreased accordingly. Coincidence?

If I were to say to a teen or twentysomething, "It's imperative to vote (or do homework, or even eat, but right now, it's about voting). You need to make your voice heard, so don't forget to get to the polls today," the standard (and sincere) response was, "Oh I will! I promise! It's really important! I'm so excited to vote!" At that moment, they really-truly-honestly-absolutely-undoubtedly-without-question were going to cast a ballot and make a difference.

And then they wouldn't.

They didn't.

They'd be busy, they'd get a text, a call, or they'd forget, or they put it off until the end of the day and then run out of time. It wasn't a priority after their initial "Yes!! I get to vote! I can't wait! I sweartogod I will. Count on it!"

They meant well.

They meant what they said.

They meant to vote.

But they didn't.


And this is why I am concerned about the youth vote turnout. If you know a young person who has the best intentions in the world but suffers from Squirrel! Syndrome, please make sure they follow through on those intentions. Keep them focused. Point them to their polling place right-now-this-moment-immediately-before-they-get-sidetracked.

Get out the youth vote.


VIDEO- Romney surrogate Eric “Etch A Sketch” Fehrnstrom: Women’s health issues are "shiny objects" that "distract people's attention"

Earlier today I posted a video of  Paul Krugman and Stephanie Cutter out-arguing Mitt Romney surrogate Eric “Etch A Sketch” Fehrnstrom on the economy on “This Week”.

In this segment, Stephanie Cutter, Eric Fehrnstrom, George Will, and Donna Brazile talk about the "women's vote" and the gender gap. Apparently Eric forgot people could still hear him speaking and opened his big, Republican mouth to present America with this gem:

“Mitt Romney is pro-life. He’ll govern as a pro-life president, but you’re going to see the Democrats use all sorts of shiny objects to distract people’s attention from the Obama performance on the economy. This is not a social issue election.”

... Says the campaign that uses social issues to distract people's attention from President Obama's accomplishments, their own failures, lies, ineptitude, dishonesty, hypocrisy, self-interests, disastrous policies, and destructive GOP obstruction tactics.
