Le Petite Mort

So I was reading an interesting article the other day about men and their orgasms and specifically how long it takes them to recover before being able to perform again.  And guess what – there is even a term for this – it is called a Refractory Period.

The article went on to suggest that the average man needs +/- 30 minutes in order to be able to perform again after an orgasm. The period in between also being referred to as “The Little Death” – Or as Wikipedia describes it “the post-orgasmic state of unconsciousness that some people have after having some sexual experiences.”

WOW! I thought. Where can I find a guy like this as he must be a god!

My limited experience with men is that they die a BIG death after they orgasm, often accompanied by snoring.  And I am no masochist and would certainly never wake a sleeping dog.  So a couple of hours in my books is considered average.

And to keep quoting Wikipedia, the Little Death is the spiritual release that comes with orgasm or to a short period of melancholy or transcendence as a result of the expenditure of the “life force,” the feeling which is caused by the release of oxytocin in the brain after the occurrence of orgasm”

Us women of course can have an orgasm and have them repeatedly as long as you guys keep stimulating us (Aren’t you all jealous!).

So ladies, I know you all think that your significant other is perhaps a little selfish when he nods off after having depleted himself inside of you.  The truth is he can’t help it.  He has depleted himself of so many chemicals that his body needs time to recover.   There is a reason after all for the term “Ladies First

I have included a video from YouTube here – the ending is a little strange and it is symbolical but you will enjoy it.

  1. Ok, you dared me! I'm leaving a comment!

    Yep, the good old Refractory Period. I think guys need to do a lot more “warming” up for the women before getting down to business. Satisfy her first and then yourself. I actually like to do that. I like to please her first and thoroughly… It's more fun that way!

  2. So I think what you are saying is that we should go easy on the guys for rolling over and snoring….because after all….they just can't help it!!!! LOL I sent you a friend request on FB. Have a great day, beautiful!

  3. Loved your profile. Rediscovering? Geesh! I'm discovering myself [and, having a romping fine time with that].

    That Regular NYC dude sent me over here, fellow Ray of Sunshine. So glad I found your blog.

    I wish I'd known about your boob challenge. I can't compete with yours, but I'd still put on my best Victoria's Secret and strut my stuff. Good Grief! I posted a picture of myself on the Loo in the my last post. I'm up for anything.

    Too bad we can't say the same for the poor guys during their post-coital snooze-a-thon.
