Sex is not just penetration …

“So you are a virgin, then?”

“What would the world be like if men’s orgasms were ‘just foreplay’ and women’s orgasms were the main event?”

— Laurie Mintz, Becoming Cliterate

“The idea that genital penetration might be seriously overhyped is a bitter pill to swallow, especially for those men of the world who base much of their sexual self esteem on the value of their penis in stimulating female pleasure… the pill doesn’t have to be bitter, and once swallowed, it can be incredibly liberating… Sex is no longer penis-dependent, and we can let go of the usual anxieties about size, stamina, and performance.”
