Female Masturbation. Man's Ultimate Fantasy?

There are two types of women in the world: women who are totally comfortable with masturbation and those who are ashamed of the act. I realize there are more than two types of women in the world, so forgive my rhetorical cheat. It's for a good cause. I don't know why some women are weird about pleasuring themselves. I am not, in fact, a woman. But to those who are embarrassed about it, please, think about rubbing one out for your boyfriend or husband tonight. He will love it. There are few spectacles as captivating as a woman getting herself off. It is pure sex on toast. Watching your girl squirm, growl, and hit the right buttons while you whisper dirty little secrets and improper commands is so hot, it makes my guts ache. It's vulnerable, and intimate, and epically eye-crossing.

What it comes down to is something quite practical: similar expectations.

A Crash Course In Autoerotic Asphyxiation

A Crash Course In Autoerotic Asphyxiation

Fox News' FOXSexpert Yvonne Fulbright gave us a crash course in the whos, whys, wheres and whats of autoerotic asphyxiation. WHAT IS IT: The act of cutting off yours (or your partner's) oxygen during sex or masturbation. It's also known as "scarfing" or "terminal sex." 2.) WHY PEOPLE DO IT: It is supposed to intensify an orgasm. As Fulbright writes:Practitioners say it makes for a much more intense orgasm. The people who engage in such activity feel like they're having a thrilling "high" while having sex with themselves. For couples, the power play, role playing, and trust components are a turn on — they love the feeling of being dominated, and the comfort of being with someone with whom they feel safe. The giddiness and euphoria it creates has been likened to a good alcohol buzz or drug high. 3.) WHO DOES IT THE MOST White males, aged 12-25 and women on the receiving end.

This week the entire First Family was in Paris to commemorate, with the leaders of France, Britain and Canada, the 65th anniversary of D-Day. The Obama family was able to visit Notre Dame Cathedral on a private tour where the president lit a candle while a children's choir sang for them. Read: Obama Girls Dating? Not Without Secret Service
