What I wore from the waist up was, however, the only thing that would show, so I chose a black halter with transparent chiffon connecting the silk ribbon tied around my neck to the fitted, bustier top. It is unclear if she is a virgin heading for the nunnery or a prostitute heading for the street: the perfect emblem for this escapade. I slipped on my favorite black, ankle-length, silk mermaid skirt and very high-heeled suede boots—I was grateful later for their superb traction. And no panties. And there it was, that pervasive, over-arching concern of almost every woman every time she has sex, unless, of course, she is alone, in which case the outcome is pretty much a slam-dunk. Other people have been interfering with our pleasure since Adam met Eve and wanted to climb inside and misdirect her from herself.
There will be a man and a woman and they are having sex. Up against a wall, in a bed, in a car, anywhere. Vertically, horizontally. Clothed or unclothed. None of that matters, because the outcome will be the same.
The search for the multiple orgasm - does it really exist?
Scientists have spent years trying to see if the female orgasm serves a purpose beyond sexual pleasure, given that, unlike the male orgasm, it has nothing to do with reproduction. The research, published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences , supports the idea that female orgasms might have originated from a reflex that prompts some female mammals to release eggs during intercourse. Some of the rabbits were put on antidepressants known to reduce the capacity for female orgasms, while others were not. The scientists found that the rabbits who were given antidepressants, and therefore would have had fewer orgasms or none at all, released 30 per cent fewer eggs compared to the rabbits that were not. Of course, the same effect is no longer true for humans as they ovulate spontaneously.
