Feminism: Sex

There exist stereotypes that women don’t want sex as much as men, don’t like sex as much as men, aren’t as interested. Well, today I will tell you that on average that is true. Women aren’t enjoying the sex they’re having as much as men are.

That is a different thing from saying women can’t or “naturally” don’t enjoy sex as much as men. They can. They aren’t.

As a culture we have a very specific narrative about how sex works, and the narrative we have considers it critical that men enjoy sex – it ‘doesn’t count’ unless a man orgasms. It is ‘done’ when the man orgasms (in the assumed heterosexual penile-vaginal sex, because clearly that’s the only kind of sex).
