In case you haven’t heard about this exciting event, it is focused on the female orgasm and dispelling myths about masturbation, sexuality, orgasm and other important topics […]

Jessica Polka, an executive board member for the co-sponsor of the event, was recently quoted as saying that “We also have the goal of trying to work toward fighting the social stigma against female sexuality.” In other words, she wants college women to become whores without being ostracized.

Emphasis mine. This may possibly be the weirdest nonsequitur I’ve ever heard. I can’t even begin to imagine what twisted logic caused Mike Adams to think that “female sexuality” (you know, the female orgasm that never occurs thanks to male-centered approach to the physical aspect of relationships) means “screwing willy-nilly.” As though by learning they are capable of sexual climax, they are immediately driven to jump on the next man they see. If I didn’t know better, I’d call the article satire, but Adams is clearly of such a mind that he takes grievous offense at women learning about orgasms.

Ah well, UNC must just be full of those “liberal elites” with their gay orgies and Bible burnings. Best just to let it rot with the rest of those coastal schools and their “tolerance” and “acceptance.”

Hat tip: Feministe.

    I don’t know about Chapel Hill, but in Raleigh bisexual orgies are all the rage.

    Ehh, I kinda know what he means, Ben. I’m sure you’re familiar with girls who love to indignantly point out that when a guy sleeps around he’s cool and when a girl sleeps around she’s a slut. You know, the type who also convince themselves that watching, en masse, muscley, oiled-up bimboys remove their coyboy outfits is an empowering feminist experience. Or the type of pornstar who was molested by her father and raped by the football team who claims that she has now taken control of her sexuality and will no longer be the victim because this time she’s actually requesting to be gagged and beaten…

    I agree, but that’s not what he’s saying. The lack of sexual attention for women (the ability to orgasm, for instance) has long been a source of gender inequality. If it’s only important for the man to come, then only the man is important.

    Now, I doubt that Dr. Adams has any reservations, in theory anyway, about the female orgasm. However, he is mistaken in taking issue, however abstract, in an event that seeks to raise aware of the aforementioned inequality.

    In fact, I’m sure his concerns have little to do with the subject matter per se and everything to do with the fact that it’s being advertised. Perhaps in his mind, females should leave talking about orgasms to coffeeshops and blogs; but as we’ve seen, not talking about it hasn’t solved a damn thing.

    Women have a harder time orgasming during intercourse for physical, logistical reasons. If the male refuses to do anything to please her, he’s just an asshole and should be dumped. Where is the “inequality”? (I assume this seminar is focused on American women, not some third-world tribe somewhere.) Of course inequality exists in porn, and some men learn their “technique” there, but again, they’re just asshole losers, move on, end of story. I don’t see a need for a freakin’ seminar about it. Come on, you know how the women are who dedicate their lives to organizing these kinds of events — overly PC, almost paranoid in their feminism, and certainly irritating.

    The vaginal orgasm isn’t as common, of course, meaning that some clitoral stimulation, either from cunnilingus or digital stimulation during intercourse, is required. A lot of guys either don’t realize this or don’t care, and women aren’t taught to express their sexual frustrations: they think of it as “their problem.” So, not only are a lot of guys assholes, but there’s a stigma attached to a woman’s sense of sexual entitlement. The fact is that men become sexualized earlier and more publicly, but women, if they’re sexualized at all, do so in a secondary capacity.

    Hmm. That’s totally not the case for me or any of my female friends, but OK.
