Advice from three of EMandLO.com’s guy friends. This week they answer the following: “What do you think is the difference between the male orgasm and the female orgasm?“ To ask the guys your own question, click here.
Single Straight Guy (Colin Adamo of Hooking Up & Staying Hooked): I’m going to put aside everything I know about the physiology and biochemistry of orgasms and say the female orgasm is like that long stretch you have when you first wake up and the male orgasm is like a sneeze. That a.m. stretch is refreshing, it involves your whole body, it feels as though it lasts for ages, and it just puts you in the perfect mood to start the day. The sneeze on the other hand just sort of happens. It’s messy, quick, a little embarrassing, and you can feel kind of gross afterward. Both the stretch and the sneeze are pretty necessary, but one is a bit more glamorous.
Married Straight Guy (Irad Eyal of Sexdegrees.net): This is a really important psychological, sociological, and political question, so I won’t even tell the joke about how you need Kleenex for both. I think of the female orgasm as the awesome moment before a male orgasm (plateau phase — 5th grade Sex Ed?) except it can go on longer, reboot, or degrade into giggles, which doesn’t usually happen to me.
Committed Gay Guy (Terence): Volume, viscosity and the time it takes to get there.
