I Am Woman

According to an ad on tv, 63% of women don't have fireworks (keeping in mind younger readers) during love-making. Obviously it then goes on to recommend their product.

What I ask is this, if two-thirds of the population give the same answer, doesn't that make them the majority and therefore the norm? Yes there are layers about ability of partners, and our own psychological issues, the ability to ask for what we want etc, but if 66% are not experiencing fireworks, then why should this be medicalized, why should we feel "bad" or that we are doing something "wrong". And this has nothing to do with me, too crippled at the moment to do anything, it is about the ongoing marketing campaigns to make women feel like we are wrong, or deformed, or lesser in some way.

Aaaargh, womanhood and the perception of men (and women's magazines) of what it should be, and how we should be. Let us be!

There's the real problem, right there.

Okay guys, come back to the principal - if the "official" figures say 63% of women don't, does it mean that there is something wrong with them?

btw - glad about your fireworks lol

Of course not:
It's penises that are all wrong.
