I don’t know about you, but when I watch Porn (don’t act like you don’t), I’m a little tired of seeing male porn stars act out only 30 seconds worth of oral sex for their female co-star, for then the woman to return the favour by giving a 30 minute blowy.
Who am I kidding – this doesn’t just happen in porn! This seems to be every female’s struggle since the late eighties. The average male would rather receive oral than give.
To prove my theory, some highly-inquisitive person, recently went ahead and did a study on oral sex. No I’m not joking. The study found that straight men are receiving a LOT more oral sex than straight women. In fact, 63.3 % of men experienced oral compared with 43.6 % of women. What’s even weirder that despite the discrepancy men (apparently) said they enjoyed going down on women, whereas 28 % of women, didn’t like giving blow jobs.
So my question here is why are women giving head when they don’t like it and why aren’t men getting stuck downstairs?
The researchers found that most women were not comfortable when men gave them oral unless they had just recently washed, due to feelings of insecurity about their “smell”. This actually got me thinking; how many times have I heard people compare the smell of a lady garden to fish, rather than roses? Quite a lot actually.
Us girls, live in a world full of scented pants, tampons, fem wipes and pressure to wax our bush until it represents a 7 year old girl’s. We’re taught from an early age that our vaginas are not perfect. Whereas men just crack on with their day, regardless of the fact their piece smells like Wotsits. Some even the same size as that cheesy crisp!
Not only are our mini-moos labelled as smelly, we’re also having to put up with the fact our thongs look like a Müller Light lid after a very long and sweaty day in the office. There’s pressure from all angles that our vaginas are not doing what they’re supposed to be doing. The irony of it all is if you have discharge and that your vagina smells like a vagina, then it’s probably working. What isn’t working is us trying to hide what nature has given us, when we should be enjoying the gift of oral sex, which is quite frankly brilliant!
