Sex Shop Declares National Orgasm Day

LONDON (Reuters) - A major British sex shop chain, citing a recent survey that showed 80 percent of women faked their climax during intercourse, said it is declaring July 31 National Orgasm Day.

Under the slogan ``Make it not fake it'' the Ann Summers chain said Thursday it was time for women to stake their claim to a full and satisfying sex life.

Offering a series of sex aids ranging from the top selling Rampant Rabbit vibrator to lip-smacking chocolate body paint to help, the chain said couples should talk through their sex troubles which were usually stress-related.

``Achieving orgasm is as much about what is going on between your ears as what is going on between your legs. Tackle these concerns before you start a love-making session and you are on the way to the big O,'' it said.

Women are still faking orgasms? How silly

-- (cin@cin.cin), June 25, 2001.

None of my women have ever faked an orgasm.

Hiya nemesis! *giggle-smile*

None that he's aware of that is.

This reminds me [of course you knew it would remind me of SOMETHING] of a conversation we had with an older couple that lived in our building when I was first married. The man of the couple was against birth control and said one could just make like the Illinois Central Train and pull out on time. They'd been married maybe 30 years. I said, "But does this method allow your wife to experience orgasm?" He said, "Of course it does." I looked over to his wife and she was vehemently shaking her head. She'd never had an orgasm in her life.

" troubles... were usually stress-related."

I find wearing chocolate body paint very stressful.

My babes always wear an orgasmometer, calibrated by Masters and Johnson. It accurately records orgasms. All of partners have achieved multiple orgasms.

I'm sure they have, just not with you.

Are you saying it is necessary for a man to ejaculate in a woman for her to climax? If I were to claim that, I'm sure would instruct me on oral and digital techniques. If this woman had never experienced orgasm it was not because of early withdrawal.

She was probably as repressed as her husband. Why did't she tell him what she needed?

Nemesis, you're probably a Minute Man.

-- (Laurelei@Jiffy.Lube), June 25, 2001.

Lars, exactly my thoughts after reading that. Male ejaculation does not equate to female orgasm. I usually reach climax before my partner or not at all, rarely at the same time.

I'm reminded of the restaurant scene (and it really was!) in When Harry Met Sally.

-- David L (, June 25, 2001.

I have heard the skinny on that scene. Meg Ryan was not acting. There was a midget with a long tongue under the table.

I'm not a midget.

-- Uncle Deedah (, June 25, 2001.

According to Ms. Ryan, neither is your tongue.

-- David L (, June 25, 2001.

That was me under the table, introducing Meg to my Fantasy Island. There are advantages to being short, Randy Newman.

Hey you little weirdo, I thought you preferred a stun gun?

Are you saying it is necessary for a man to ejaculate in a woman for her to climax?

Certainly not, Lars. He was what we might refer to as a "minute man". As for why his wife didn't discuss it with him, I got the impression that she found the experience unpleasant but knew it only lasted a minute or two. Yeah...I think they were both sexually repressed. It's sad to think that they never encountered the joys of love-making.

The orgasm faked is the orgasm missed out on for ever...

once you've faked it it's gone for good!

I am no casanova or John Holms but I beleave it is the responsibility of the male partner to satisfy his partner befor he satisfies himself
