Is there any statement made by a heterosexual man that’s sadder than “female orgasm is a myth?” It’s a sentiment I’ve run across a number of times in and around the manosphere, and it’s such a self-own that I cannot help but look upon each new variation of the idea with a sense of wonder.
It suggests not only that the man making the statement has had a nonexistent or simply very bad sex life but also that he is too deliberately obtuse to take the word of the (cis) women of the world on a point rather central to their sexuality.
But men keep saying this, and not only that but they do so with a weird aura of confidence, as if they are daring truth tellers taking on some sort of mass deception.
I found the latest example on the site “GirlsAskGuys” — though this question is clearly being asked (and answered) by a guy.
Pointing to the gif below showing a (fake) orgasm from a Hollywood movie, he declares that “[t]his is a Female Orgasm according to Society/Hollywood…”
He dismisses the (fake) orgasm depicted in the gif snidely:
Basically a women opening her mouth.
You are telling me that this is equal to ejaculation? LMFAO!
Let’s not dwell too long on the absurdity of using a faked female orgasm from a movie to dismiss real orgasms as fake.
But even the fake, acted-out orgasm depicts something a good deal more involved than just a woman opening her mouth. Like, for example, her body spasming? I’m beginning to think this guy’s observational abilities are somewhat lacking.
Sorry but the female orgasm is a myth… I’m sure women get pleasure but the fact is you don’t have an orgasm, you don’t have a climax at all.
Men on the other hand do have a climax, that’s when they ejaculate… Our orgasms are actually proven science.
It is true that orgasms involving a penis can be a bit easier to detect, because unless the orgasmer is practicing some elaborate tantric techniques these orgasms generally result in a dramatic spurt and a mess to clean up. You don’t need science to observe this, just your own eyes (and at least one hand).
Cis female orgasms are a bit more complicated than that, and can be more easily faked, but that doesn’t mean they’re not real, or that science has somehow failed to prove they exist. They can take many forms, some relatively subtle and others quite dramatic; and they generally do involve some sort of female ejaculate. In any case, Mr. No Female Orgasm, a quick googling of “female orgasm science” will pull up a considerable amount of bedtime reading on the subject.
Or you could, you know, just listen to women talk about the subject and assume they’re telling the truth about their experiences.
But Mr Won’t Listen to Women has more thoughts:
Now I know people are gonna come in here with the squirters… Fact is that is not a fact that’s even an orgasm. Not all women squirt… and so far science can’t say squirting is 100% due to an orgasm.
No, science can pretty much say just that.
Our master debater winds up his screed:
Women obviously have pleasure and I’m sure some days they have more pleasure than others but that is not an orgasm.
So yeah it’s a myth.
Keep repeating this, dude. Repetition won’t make it come true, of course, but at least it will serve as a warning to any women considering having sex with you.
