Orgasm For An Hour (Yes, We’re Serious) | YourTango

Orgasm For An Hour (Yes, We’re Serious) | YourTango.

We believe that humans have the power to create our lives as we want them to be. We are the directors and creators of our experience. However, because of societal prejudices, it is often difficult to express the desire for pleasure, especially sensual pleasure. Our work has been made possible by the earlier work of heroes who were able to step out of the box and notice that the emperor was wearing no clothes—and what’s more, that the emperor was having a lot of fun without his clothes. Dr. Vic Baranco, pioneering sexologist and master teacher, has been our biggest hero. He showed us that orgasm does not have to be limited to a few seconds and a few contractions; it can begin with or before the first touch or stroke and continue throughout the whole sexual experience; it can last many minutes or even hours at ever-increasing intensities that far surpass the usual, short orgasm. That, in a nutshell, is the definition of an extended massive orgasm, or EMO.

refers to a form of behaviour where you obsessively fantasise about a person you have just started dating or been on just one date with. According to the authors, Jordana Abraham, Samantha Fishbein and Aleen Kuperman, otherwise known as ‘The Betches’, it appears differently in men and women. While men are likely to do this at the beginning of your romance, it’s more about having sex with you – as opposed to women, who it’s said will fantasise about everything from marriage to babies.

Is it OK to masturbate while in hospital?

‘So I pulled out my dick and started playing with it. ‘I was worried someone might come in, so I kept pausing and listening for odd sounds. Maybe the drugs were making me paranoid. However, it made quite a mess and I cleaned it up just in time (moments before the nurse came in to check on me).

Solosexuality and Pornosexuality: Learned or Innate?

That said, it’s entirely possible that some solosexuals and pornosexuals are “born that way.” If so, we need to accept that, acknowledge it, and maybe even celebrate it. Even if we don’t exactly understand it. Who am I to question a person who self-identifies as solosexual or pornosexual? If a person is naturally and innately happier with solo sexual behaviors, that’s OK by me, as long as that person is not completely isolated in life and bereft of support—because study after study shows that we do better
