National Orgasm Day: July 31 is here!

You can read about it here from Yahoo and more detailed results of a so-called "orgasm survey" on this site, too. Please take it with a grain of salt and remind yourselves that orgasm is NOT everything and that perhaps we would be better suited to celebrate pleasure, enhancement, contentment, cuddling and connection than just orgasms. Not that orgasms aren’t great, but I sometimes worry that we place a bit too much pressure on them and some people feel insecure about their orgasms. So try to take it with fun, if possible. And if you have questions about orgasm or anything else sexuality or relationship related, please send me an email to drdebby@mysexprofessor.com or through the Kinsey Confidential web site. And to be in the spirit of things, I’ll go ahead and wish you the happiest, loveliest National Orgasm Day wheresoever you find yourself in the world (and with or without orgasm).
