I've been thinking about orgasms and how important they are in real life and in the fictional world of my books. Besides the kiss, the first orgasm between the hero and heroine is THE moment you've got to get right. It's the culmination of mounting passion and it has to SIZZLE. I've always loved how easy lovers achieve orgasms between the pages of a romance book. I can't count how many times I've read of heroines reaching the big O with no clitoral stimulation or within the first...yep, the first powerful thrust of the hero. Suspension of disbelief at its finest! Today, I prefer more realistic sex scenes in my work and in whatever I'm reading.
Let's face it, the big O eludes most of us when we're making love. Almost seventy percent of us fake it! Wouldn't it be nice if we (women) could climax in reality as fast and easy as the heroines in the books we love to read? Better yet, wouldn't it be nice to be wired like men and know going into making love that the big O is gonna happen unless you stop short? I think it's amazing guys can get off every single time...barring no health issues or whatever. It's seems so unfair.
But then I think women treasure and feel orgasms deeper. Having orgasms alone is wonderful. Incredible sometimes, but there's nothing like getting there with someone you love (or lust). We know how special they are especially when achieved with a lover. Give us a good climax and we'll remember you forever. We'll daydream about you...even fantasize about you when we're...we're cooking dinner. :)
I read an article where they are developing a pill to help women achieve them more easily. Imagine if there was a pill you could take anytime of day and climax within seconds. Eureka! How would the dating scene and sexual relationships change? I'm pretty sure it would change a lot.
So, for all you readers of erotic romance. Do you want realistic orgasms or do you prefer the fantasy O? What would you think if you read a sex scene where the heroine didn't have an orgasm at all, but still enjoyed the lovemaking? Is that too realistic? :)
I believe orgasms are DIVINE gifts. Give one or get one today!
