Well, pretty damn good, I’d say—since today is my birthday and … here I am. Blogging about sex. ’Cause what else would I want to talk about on my birthday? Cake? Ice Cream? Presents? I think not.
I’m intrigued by the new series on Showtime called Masters of Sex. Did any of you catch the series premiere last weekend? If you didn’t, let me tell you—it’s a show based on the real life research of Dr. William Masters and his partner, Virginia Johnson. Together, these two pioneered research into how the human body responds to sexual stimulation. Most notably, from the female perspective. From arousal to the blissful aftermath of orgasm—Masters and Johnson looked at every stage. Literally. They watched … in the name of science, of course. (Greatest. Job. Ever. Can you imagine THAT dinner table conversation? “How was your day, dear?” “Uhhhh, nothing too exciting … had a bologna sandwich for lunch and watched a couple hump for an hour. You?”)
But, here’s the intriguing part—it’s about a dude who is fascinated with the female orgasm. Okay, it’s about much more than that, but still … isn’t that what every woman wants? A man who’s just as interested in his partner’s pleasure as his own?
Let’s take Caleb Martin, for example. Powerful, breathtakingly gorgeous, and dominant—all solid qualities for an alpha male—but would you still want to have sex with him if he was a selfish bastard in the sack?
Good thing for us, he’s not:
“Make no mistake about it. If I were to take you, it wouldn’t be a quick fuck.” He crowded her back against the door and shoved his knee between her legs. His hands clenched her arms, holding her still.
She struggled against him, her chest heaving, as he leaned his weight against her, making it clear who held the reins. “I like to take my time, Samantha. There are so many fascinating places to explore on a woman’s body. So many tempting noises to tease from a mouth gone swollen from my kisses.”
He put his mouth close to her ear. “If I take you, you’ll be mine to do with as I please. You’ll be wet.” He ground his hips against her stomach. “And you’ll beg.”
