5 Things Women Should Know About Sex

sexKnow everything about sex?

Me too.

But I still enjoyed this article, 27 Things Every Woman Should Know About Sex over at Redbook.

Here are my 5 favorites from the piece:

Every woman has a surefire sex position. Is there a position or move that always equals orgasm for you? Do it. Do it often. If you find a new move, do that one, too.

Everyone else is not having better sex than you. They're not having more sex than you either. Get over it, and then get it on.

We need transition time into sex. Men can be ready anytime--like, say, on the way home from a parent-teacher conference at your kid's preschool. Not so much for women. We have to get our minds off our kids, our mother-in-laws and our little boys' socks before we can get even think about getting busy. We need world peace and household tranquility to get in the mood. Or maybe at least wait till we've gotten the kids to bed.

Masturbating isn't just for dry spells. Love thy self. Often.

Planned sex isn't corporate. Our lives are so busy that we plan our kids' playdates. Our mothers didn't do that. Kids just showed up. Men need to stop getting flustered if we have to pencil in sex. Instead, look forward to it. Sext about it, as I wrote about recently. (Sexting is sexy, who knew?)

What's your womanly wisdom about sex? Do you have any tips? Or what does it take to get you into the meow-here-comes-kitty sex mood?

Well, not all women CAN orgasm, so that first one is bunk. ;)


Other than that, I really can't think of much to add.

ALL WOMAN CAN ORGASM..UNLESS MEDICALLY IMPOSSIBLE. MAYBE IF YOU ACTUALLY TRY AT IT.. IT WILL HAPPEN. I COULD NEVER GET OFF MYSELF. I GOT SOME TOYS, WATCHED SOME MOVIES... AND FIGURED IT OUT.

Actually not all women can orgasm. Part of the blame lies in themselves, part lies with the man. Medical reasons excluded of course.

There's a phrase my husband used often back when we were dating, "Abstinence makes the heart grow fonder." There's nothing like be separated for a period of time to REALLY get in the mood. My husband has been in South Korea for over three months now and I'm here. I'll be over there hopefully soon and we're already making plans! lol


I'm actually the one with the huge drive so just about anything gets me going! lol I must have more testosterone or something.

I agree with the momma above me abstinence does make the heart grow fonder cuz my husband in korea and we are trying to get over there and I can't wait either.

I don't know what has come over me, but all of a sudden I've started to have multiple orgasms during sex.  I was one of the women who could count on one hand the amount of times I've had an O during sex or oral for that matter.  Since I stopped taking one of my medications, I swear that's why I can now.  I've also altered what I do during sex so that may be part of it, but I've upped my number of orgasms to tripple the amount in one week.  LOL Sorry I had to share.
