I like how they tell you to not make babies on the "Global O".

Yeh, but the way they put it, it seems like they don't want you to have sex at all.

Seriously. LOL. This is funny. My first thought was this exactly: "WTF is this crap!?"

I can't help but laugh at it, the idea in my opinion is very silly, but it's for a good cause I guess, so I'm all for it. Just so long as people keep some decency while they are at it <.<

Um.. I think I would be weirded-out while making love with my mate and thinking "Holy Crap- like the world world is having sex, just like we are!"

And I would so totally be turned off. O_O;;

If we all are listening to the same song, we can whack off in synch that night. Eventually we can get the planet to move a few inches farther away from the sun and prevent global warming!

No, You misunderstand it. They are talking about global orgasm day, not global coitus day.

Look, it's rather clear that men do not need a global orgasm day for themselves. I mean, seriously, they can have it any day. The purpose of this particular exercise is probably to emphasize the feminine orgasm. It's a way to fight the (severely skewed) man-oriented sex stereotypes. We're all victim of it - You gave the best example Yourself; we were ( in general ) brought up, and are constantly under the impression from media, society, etc, to think sex=coitus. This is ultimately flawed, since the coitus is the sexual practice with the least probability of giving the female an orgasm (well, one-sided fetishes aside, of course). Okay, sure, there are exceptions. However, truth is that in our oversexualised society, sexual education is still rather crippled - men learn how to please themselves, women learn how to please men. One has to ask himself: What is wrong with this picture?

Well. The topic is rather complex, and it's rather late here, so I won't elaborate ( it would end up being TL; DR, anyway ) any further... let's say: It can never hurt to think about what one really knows about the topic. It often turns out that beneath the silly jokes, made to cover one's own uneasiness, there is only a very shallow knowledge pool...

If the 4 years I was forced to take Sex Ed. were recalled correctly, they taught men nothing about "pleasing themselves". at least here they didn't. Where did you get that from?

Sexual education as in from the society in general. "Please themselves" also as in generally doing what gives them pleasure, not just in terms of masturbation ( I admit my wording was a bit off there ).

And about where I get that from... eh. A mix of personal experience, thoughts, and various socio/sexuological reports. Interesting stuff, and much of it is rather surprisingly, well, true.

Yeah, there's always exceptions and ways around the non-existent rule that feminists love to throw out there about how it's only the men who get any pleasure from sexual intercourse and therefor sex is like the ultimate tool in the oppression of the female gender. You know, like men can switch their technique up, or the women can be on top, or some couples can be just that hot for each other that it doesn't matter what they do / don't do, both parties will be cumming before the night is out.... Nah, I'm just fuckin' with ya! Couples don't actually try to relate to each other so both parties have the best sex possible, it's all about male chauvinism! We invented sex for that reason.

I dunno about that. Any gender that is curious can find numerous help sites devoted to helping people understand those sorts of things, methods, precautions, safetey, risks, ect.

As for in society in general, I'd say the part about it being more generally understood for males has something to do with differences in mentality about such things in genders mayhap. Granted, I know nothing factual on this topic, but I'd say its just the idea that guys are more likely to spread that sort of information around than women are.

That's just ignorant. I am fully aware that couples do try to make things work for them, but I am also aware of the fact that the general attitude towards sex - that of equating sex with the coitus, and that therefore sex starts with the man's erection and ends with his ejaculation - does not make it easy for them. I also aknowledge that, were it not for those feminists, no man would even think about "switching their technique up", or allowing the woman to go on top - hell, the women wouldn't probably think of it themselves, since they wouldn't have much pleasure during sexualintercourse anyway, and therefore wouldn't be "so hot" for the partner in the first place. It was not so long ago that it was simply not the case. I've interviewed elderly women ( around 60 - 70 ) about the general topic, and, if I wasn't instantly wished to hell for even mentioning such evil things as *gasp* sex and pleasure, the frequency of answers like "Didn't have an orgasm until I turned 36" or, in some cases, not at all, was indeed rather high.
Also, no feminist in her right mind will ever tell You only men get pleasure from sexual intercourse, but mainly men. Given the fact that the stimulation of the clitoris is only minimal during coitus, as well as the need for special techniques to stimulate sensitive areas inside of the vagina with the penis alone, it's also no wonder. It's like expecting a man to have an orgasm from the sole stimulation of testicles. Sure, it can be pleasurable, but I highly doubt it can be orgastic.

That's correct; however, given the way young women are influenced from childhood onwards, there is a high likehood that they don't develop the curiosity, or that it will be overridden by shame and guilt. In praxis, it just is so that a teenager is not very likely to actively seek such information - and why would You? You get dry sexual ed in school, some basic ( often flawed ) Ideas from Your parents, and a lot of input from Your peer group. Sadly, ignoring the fact that the information in school is often filtered because of the "concern" of religious parties and parents, the concern and information from parents is likely to be influenced by their own sexual experiences ( which, in praxis, most of the time still looks like the following: The father has some "man talk" with his son, from which the son understands: He has responsibility and should wait with it, but other than that he should just knock himself out , whereas the daughter gets told genitalia are something dirty, she shouldn't touch herself there, and then something about waiting for the man she loves and teenage pregnancy. ), and the peer group consists of mostly equally confused teenagers getting their information from sources they often cannot correctly understand or that are inherently skewed ( media, pornography, etc ).

The point is: As a curious teenager, You just don't go and buy an informative book about the topic, or visit an informative website, because that is still viewed as in one way or another "wrong". Instead, You look for enlightement in the wrong places, which are often very dark indeed. Again, exceptions occur ( hell, I was personally one of them, otherwise I probably couldn't discuss the topic the way I do ).

They are, and it is about mentality. The thing is, this mentality is not necessarily innate. It is at least to some extent given by years and years of indoctrination. Why are guys more likely to spread that sort of information around? Because women are not supposed to be nterested in such things! This is not a crazy feminist Idea; this is historical anthropology. Such thinking is rooted deeply into our society, and even in the present age of sexual (among other forms of- ) "enlightment", one can see the pressure of the years lasting on the ex-taboos, creating an ambiguous situation.

Not to say whe should go into the other extreme and behave as if suddenly everything should be for the woman's pleasure only - that often seems to be the fear of men, somehow. It should be about harmony, about mutual interest. Not just the "man with his drive" and the "woman to serve". That's just unfair. And that[/i]'s coming from a male, by the way.

I understand your point Sylvine (you make excellent points in your well written posts) and I agree.

I received the best and only Sex Ed I ever needed from my mother.

YES, My own mother.

She always was willing to answer any questions I had (no matter how explicit the answer would be) and answered me honestly and lovingly. She also gave me a book entitled "Our Bodies, Our Selves," which was an ancient hand-me-down because she bought it for herself as teen when her mother refused to teach her about sex.

I was 12 when this began.

I understand 250% that talking about sex is awkward for most parents; let's face it, it would be odd if it didn't bother them. My mother overcame that hurdle to educate her daughter and ensure that she got honest, truthful answers, as well as know and understand the best ways to protect herself... Why can't any other parents do the same? (rhetorical, don't answer me.)

I close with this comment: "I have an awesome mom, an I intend follow her example should I ever decide to have children of my own." =3

Let's get something straight. I am significantly older than you. And I don't know how much experience you have when it comes to sex, but I'm not a total stranger to it. All the shit you just got done talking about, when the feminists were all "fight the power" or whatever, may have been the norm at one time - but it hasn't been for as long as I've been "of age". I've never dated a woman that didn't have a fair amount of control in all aspects of the relationship, including that, and believe me, in most cases my partner knew she was entitled to that and didn't even ask, which I respect and even admire in a woman. I think that's been the trend in recent decades. What you're talking about might've been the norm when our parents where our age, relatively. That was in their day, not ours, and when feminists keep talking as if nothing has changed, it just serves as another example of revolutionaries from a bygone age harping over the old cause, and ignoring the current and very serious issues their descendents are having to face without their support.

The only problem with all of this, from my experiences and conversations with friends, is that the same concepts apply to men too. It's not just women :| It's the sex fearing society in general.

Oh don't even get me started on society's perceptions of what a man should be, and how many males I see frankly turning into male bitches trying to conform to a media-driven tossed salad of conflicting messages about what it is to be a man. The difference between me and Sylvine is I fucking hate those men with a passion for their stupidity and lack of integrity, and I hate the women who let others dictate who and what they are just as much. But I don't blame society, because they are society, and if society changes, it's because they will change. I refuse to look at them as nothing more than helpless victims of time and circumstance - that undermines the entire spirit of what causes like feminism and civil rights WERE essentially about until the identity politics crept in, which is human freedom. If the power to shape your being belongs to "society" and not you, then the cause is lost on you anyway and you're not worth fighting for.
