The Pleasure Revolution

Women had their own sexual revolution in the 60s that the feminists never acknowledged.  It was about clits, vibrators, and choosing how to have your own orgasm.  Becky Chalker, author of the Clitoral Truth, came by and we talked about all the lurid details.

Tickled

I finally had the time to listen to the entire podcast this past week, while transporting myself around via train, and I had a shit-eating, tickled-ass grin on my face the entire time. The historical summary of the pleasure revolution in tandem with, conjunction with, and in spite of its contemporary mainstream feminist movement is intensely valuable. Thank you!

Sex after child birth in marriage

Relating to your comment on married men not having sex with their wives after child birth. It's my experience that it is not a question of not finding their wives as attractive as they ever did, but instead that the women were not at all interested in sex to the same extent as they once were. I'm very interested in having oral and anal sex with my wife after she had our 3 children, but it is not on the menu anymore. So where does that leave you? Your only option is extramarital sex. I think you're right about almost everything else though. Keep up your excellent work!

Actually, Sir, it leaves you with the fact that the state of your sex life has changed.  The choices you make from there are your own responsibility; extramarital sex is only one of those possibilities.  Her body and hormones have obviously changed after bearing your children, which she didn't do by herself.  Why are you blaming and punishing her with loss of a committed partner?  It's not "her fault", rather just another challenge of marriage, to be faced and conquered together.
A life temporarily without oral or anal sex?  Some people actually cope very nicely that way.  I don't see it as cause for forwaking marriage vows.  Rather i see it as an opportunity to grow and change with the woman you promised to be faithful to, back when she had the time and energy to lavish your penis with attention.
Surely you know what she still enjoys.  Does she like to read erotica?  Look at pictures?  Watch movies?  Dress up?  Use that as a means to regain some common ground, and re-expand your horizons together from there.  
And grow up.

Here, here! I was very bothered by the response of the gentleman whose wife 'didn't satisfy HIS needs anymore'....  The author of "Faulty Logic" stated it well. Grow up.
Your wife deserves far better treatment than you implied in your whining. I wonder what will happen when she is full into her prime; recovered from all the physical stresses of child birth and rearing; a fully evolved sexual being - which happens to us women as we age - and you are too tired with waning testosterone, etc to be interested anymore? What then? If she pursued an extramarital affair to satisfy the needs you cannot or will not, is that acceptable to you? I find it utterly sad that you are fixated on what you imagine you cannot have as if your wife, the mother of your children, is simply a vessel to get you off.....

When feminists are engaging

When feminists are engaging in the nerve ending wars celebrating the clitoris' supremacy over the penis are they being purposefully misleading when the clit is always compared to the glans of the penis which isn't even the most sensitive part....the foreskin is much more sensitive than the glans with upwards of 20,000 nerves called Meissner's corpuscles

Multiple Orgasms?

So... I've been having multiple orgasms since... Well, hell, since I
started masturbating? I call them "sweet vibrations", though, since it's like I
have mini seizures. Anyway, that's interesting. I was doing something all along that I didn't even know I could do. That excites me.
