Happy Anniversary, Sigmund
From Seattle Times by way of blondesense:
2005 . . . marks the centennial of Sigmund Freud's theory of vaginal orgasm.
Freud's idea didn't cause a revolution in our understanding of the cosmos, but it did set off a debate that rages to this day. . .
Freud proposed that female pleasure and orgasm should center on the reproductive tract. He was aware that many women experienced orgasm through a small but ultrasensitive organ known as the clitoris but dealt with this by declaring such orgasms "infantile." Any woman who didn't transfer her center of sensitivity to the vagina he labeled as frigid.
It was the idea that launched a thousand fake orgasms.
Sex research has shown that about 95 percent of men nearly always have orgasm from intercourse while only about 25 percent to 30 percent of women do. Another 30-some-odd percent of women never have orgasm from intercourse, and a middle 30 percent to 40 percent report having them sometimes.
