Ancient Sexual Trivia

Earlier this week, I reached into a box of books. The first book that came out was,"History Laid Bare," a book on what's been written about sex since ancient times.

In the part on the ancient world, the author included something Hippocrates theorized about the female orgasm:

During intercourse, once a woman's genitals are rubbed vigorously and her womb titillated, a lustfulness overwhelms her down there, and the feeling of pleasure and warmth pools out through the rest of the body. A woman also has an ejaculation, furnished by her body, occurring at the same time inside the womb, which has become wet as well on the outside, because now the womb is gaping wide open.

A woman feels pleasure right from the start of intercourse, through the entire time of it, right up until the moment when the man pulls out; if she feels an orgasm coming on, she ejaculates with him and then she no longer feels pleasure. But if she feels no oncoming orgasm, her pleasure stops when his does. It's like when one throws cold water onto boiling water. The boiling ceases immediately. The same with the man's sperm falling into the womb, it extinguishes the warmth and pleasure for the woman.

Her pleasure and warmth, though, surge the moment the sperm descends the womb, then it fades. Just as when wine is poured on a flame, it gives a spurt before it goes out for good.

Did you all laugh as hard as I did, when I first read it? But then something occurred to me...

Sadly, there still seem to be a lot of men who believe crap like this. There are also still woman who perpetuate this myth. *sigh*

.....because now the womb is gaping wide open.

That says alot.

Nothing like romanticizing the orgasm.

I think we should stop the progression of mankind right now and start the process of regression back to primates.

It would make things more fun.

Um... If we start to regress, we decide that women's wombs gape wide open during sex. Modern medical science knows that's not true.

Ew, I dont want my womb to be titillated. I suppose that means that women who have had hysterectomies cant have orgasms anymore then? Duh.

MissAnnThrope replies on 3/19/2006 2:32 pm:
See, as far as I know, they didn't have hysterectomies back then. But yeah, I do believe titillating the womb these days is called hitting bottom. Not a very comfortable feeling at all.

I know a gross of men that believe this Hippocratic crap. All this is saying (in pretty words of course) is "just send the pussy and stay home. you only feel as long as the man feels" HA. Many a time have I had to finish myself because "Adonis" has extinguished and can't even muster enough energy to lend (pun VERY intended) a hand...

MissAnnThrope replies on 3/19/2006 2:33 pm:
Well, they do have those pussies and asses molded from porn stars. Oh yeah, that's right. They'd have to spend more than the price of a Happy Meal and porn video to buy one of those.

Have pity on the poor guy. Hippocrates was quite the thinker but suffered from the problem that all men have ... he doesn't have the equipment and was afraid to ask.

Hugs from us ...

MissAnnThrope replies on 3/19/2006 2:36 pm:
Well, he also theorized that to get pregant, there was no egg. A woman's sperm mixed with a man's. So of course, making sure a woman was properly lubricated meant she was producing sperm. I can sort of see the thinking behind it. A lot of women do have a lubrication problem when they hit menopause.

Ah, Ancient Medicine. Those men were so sure they knew what they were talking about, but I'll bet not one woman was asked if the writers viewpoint was even remotely close to being true.


MissAnnThrope replies on 3/19/2006 2:37 pm:
Well, back then, the men took young boys as lovers and visited courtesans or their wives when they felt like it.

Not really. Women were allowed to enjoy sex until the Church came along and started preaching we were nothing but baby machines and all of that crap.

MissAnnThrope replies on 3/19/2006 2:40 pm:
Heh. I don't even want the gyn doing more than looking at it with that flashlight. The pap smear hurts badly enough.

The ancient Greeks said men had more teeth than women, and that was tuaght for centuries, until some people had the bright idea during the Renaissance to actually look inside some mouthes and count the number of teeth!

MissAnnThrope replies on 3/19/2006 2:49 pm:
You know, there are still people who believe women have one more set of ribs than men. Because Eve was created from Adam's rib. In spite of medical science proving both men and women have twelve sets of ribs, people still insist on believing women have thirteen.

If ever there were words that don't belong on a T-shirt:
I want my womb to be titillated!

...perhaps it rolls of the tongue better in Greek,

MissAnnThrope replies on 3/19/2006 2:50 pm:
You know, I think that would be a great t-shirt. You would know to stay the hell away from anyone wearing it!

MissAnnThrope replies on 3/19/2006 2:51 pm:
Yeah, I had the same reaction when I first read it.

I have a few responses to this one:

"What the fuck was that? LOL"

"Hippocrates? Any relation to Socrates?"

"Leave it to the Greek to tell you everything you need to know or don't need to know about sex."

And, the perrenial favourite:

"Only in the George W. era." (Could not resist! LOL!!)

Come into my realm! You aren't afraid...are you?

MissAnnThrope replies on 3/19/2006 2:55 pm:
Now, now... You know in the Dubya era, sex is only for Babs and Jenna.

I'm with you on Giuliani!!! And God have mercy on me if I titillate a womb, that has to be painful.
I consider it my pleasure to dispel the myths whenever I'm pleasuring my partner!


MissAnnThrope replies on 3/20/2006 6:33 pm:
Heh. When it comes to titilating the womb, I tell men, if they want to know what it feels like, balance a baseball bat straight up and down. Then just slam your balls straight down onto it. It's so painful that it literally knocks the wind right out of you, so you can't even scream.
