Every Article About Vaginas 1

Most people may not realize it, but it takes quite an effort to find header images for our blog posts that aren’t explicit and aren’t exhaustingly overused. I think we’ve mostly been able to avoid fruit and flowers unless the topic of the post requires it!

We try to pick images that are a little quirky, whimsical, or ironic, but sometimes direct is the only option. Do you have a favorite header image? Here are some of mine.

Women's Bodies "Might Be the Most Interesting Thing in the World" 2

Ann Althouse makes a powerful claim that isn’t obviously false: women’s bodies “might be the most interesting thing in the world”. The larger context of her post isn’t that relevant to us — paparazzi photographing celebrities — so let’s focus on the quoted claim.

Althouse is responding to a Scaachi Koul in Buzzfeed who says that:

The truth about Eilish’s body in those paparazzi photos — the truth about most women and their bodies — is really boring: It’s just a body, and you get the one you get.

Althouse writes:

… I’ll say that women’s bodies are not boring. They might be the most interesting thing in the world. Stop trying to tell people to be bored and dulled by the sight of human bodies. The message should be about etiquette — how to act around women’s bodies, how to speak in a way that brings credit to you and gets you more of what you’d love in this world. Etiquette… and love! Isn’t that what you want more of?

When I first read this paragraph it stuck me as hyperbole, but is it? Let’s stipulate that the phrase “in the world” excludes God and a few other very interesting things. With that understanding, what’s more interesting than the human female body?

First of all, the human body (male or female) is extremely interesting, both to us and to God.

  • Humans are made in God’s image.
  • Humans can differentiate between good and evil.
  • Humans can choose their course of action.
  • Humans can be responsible for their choices.
  • Humans can speak.
  • Humans can create and use tools.
  • Humans can stand upright and throw.
  • Humans can create art and music.
  • Humans can think and reason using abstract symbols.
  • Humans can build social and physical structures.
  • Humans can tell stories.
  • Humans can contemplate their place in the universe.
  • Humans know that they’re mortal.

I’d argue that the qualities and capabilities listed above are enough to substantiate the belief that humans are “the most interesting thing in the world”.

But wait! In addition to everything above, the female human body can do several things that the male cannot. The story of God creating woman out of man aligns with the idea that God wanted to keep all the good stuff while adding a few extra features to her.

  • Human females can gestate a human baby.
  • Human females can nurse a human baby.
  • Human females can have multiple orgasms.
  • Human females can get aroused in public without visibility.

Finally, I can’t think of anything a male body can do that a female can’t. The male body exceeds the female body in some areas, like strength and size, but those are quantitative differences, not qualitative. You might say that the male body can impregnate the female, but I’d argue that’s equivalent to the female body’s contribution to conception; gestation is wholly different and the male body has no equivalent.

So it seems to me that Althouse’s claim is reasonable: despite being relatively common, women’s bodies are the most interesting thing in the world. No wonder we see them depicted everywhere.

Happy New Year to all our readers! We hope your Christmas was amazing and that 2020 is a blessed year for your marriage. Thank you for reading our blog and for sharing your experiences and challenges with us. If you enjoy our blog or podcast please share them with a friend!

We’ll go first!

Best sexual experience from 2019: Having sex on a paddle-boat in a lake after midnight under a full moon. The whole night was amazingly intimate, and the lake sex topped it off.

Sexual goals for 2020: Learning for El Fury to give and Sexy Corte to receive orgasms more easily in a greater variety of positions. We’re making progress on this existing goal, and we’re going to continue in 2020.

Leave a Comment and Share Your Recent New Sexual Experiences 4

We love to hear from readers who have recently expanded or enhanced their sex life with their spouse — especially if our blog was a catalyst for the new experience! But whether it’s because of us or not, please leave a comment below telling about a new sexual experience or accomplishment you’ve had. Here are three examples.

K and her husband tried New Faithful:

K
We finally tried this and it was incredible! You are spot on any the feedback loop- we both got super aroused in record time. Will definitely become one of our go tos. Thank you!!

El Fury
Awesome, glad to hear it. Did you finish this way or just use it for foreplay?

K
Both! Helps that I started swallowing with your encouragement :p

Eric and his wife played Sexy Adult Jenga:

We just used your Jenga game rules last night. We had a great time! Thank you for the ideas!! Keep up the good work.

James writes that his wife has started asking permission to orgasm:

My wife just started this and I think it is great. She has always been fairly vanilla but has done this the past few weeks.

As for me and Sexy Corte, we’ve been trying two new things recently that we will write about eventually:

  1. Sexy Corte has been training herself to reach orgasm in positions other than wife-on-top.
  2. We’ve been experimenting with a little anal play.

Please share your new experiences or accomplishments in the comment section. We’d love to create a podcast episode on this topic!

Come Brag About Your Holiday Sex 5

We hope that you all had a great Christmas and New Year! The holiday season is often stressful, but did you know that it’s also the catalyst for a yearly September baby boom?

It’s often wryly observed that birth rates peak in September, with many studies citing seasonal changes in human biology to explain this post-holiday “baby boom.” But new research from scientists at Indiana University and the Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência in Portugal finds that spikes in pregnancies are actually rooted in society, not biology.

“We observe that Christmas and Eid-Al-Fitr are characterized by distinct collective moods that correlate with increased fertility,” Rocha said. “Perhaps people feel a greater motivation to grow their families during holidays when the emphasis is on love and gift-giving to children. The Christmas season is also associated with stories about the baby Jesus and holy family, which may put people in a loving, happy, ‘family mood.'”

Sexy Corte and I have been on a roll this holiday season — I hate to brag, but during vacation we had sex seven times in 72 hours! She actually had to beg off from having another orgasm because her legs were getting sore. (Ok, so maybe I like to brag a little.) We’re not having any more babies, but being in close proximity for days at a time still seems to rev our engines. (It’s also worth noting that we had a pretty good fight, too — which is also pretty common for couples over the holidays)

I’m sure we weren’t the only ones having great sex over the holidays — what about you? Any sexual accomplishments you’d like to brag about? You can’t share with your “real friends”, but you can share with your pseudonymous internet buddies!

How Do You Feel Immediately After Sex? 6

I thought this would be a fun discussion topic for a Friday: a new study is investigating how people feel immediately after sexual activity.

“There are a wide range of responses in the period of time immediately following consensual sexual activity, known as the resolution phase,” says Robert Schweitzer, a psychologist leading the research team at the Queensland University of Technology in Australia.

“For example, some people like to cuddle, others like to be alone and there are others, as we have found in previous research that experience what is described as post-sex blues.”

So how do you feel immediately after sex? What do you do? Let us know in the comments.
