Debunking Sexual Myths: We Just Wanna Like K.Michelle
Hookup if you want ‘cause women are as wild and lusty as men.
One of the songs on my playlist right now is K. Michelle’s “I Just Wanna.” It’s as straightforward as it gets, with K. Michelle asserting her sexual dominance.
“I just wanna fuck and not fall in love,” she harmonizes over a classical piano melody. A relationship is the last thing she wants. And no, that doesn’t make her a slut… “cuz a woman has her needs.”
Typically, this isn’t what women say they want from a lover. When it comes to sex women are supposed to get more attached and be submissive and monogamous “by nature.” We enjoy sex in the context of being in a long-term relationship. If we express any sexual desire to the contrary—one night stands, quickies, and unattached sex—we are considered sluts.
The Truth About Promiscuity
Then there’s the truth of it all, which, according to journalist Daniel Bergner and author of What Do Women Want, it’s none of the above. While many women feel more liberated to express their sexual desires today, Bergner suggests that centuries of brainwashing has led most modern-aged, new millennium, feminists to subconsciously suppress their needs.
Case in point, one of the studies he refers to describes a research study where women’s sexual desire was tested. While looking at pornographic images with a plethysmograph tucked into their vaginas, a sensor measured blood flow and wetness. As the women watched porn, they shared what turned them on and what did not. What happened? Some women said ‘not really my thing’ although their nether regions suggested otherwise.
Women Want It As Bad As Men Do
Bergner’s conclusions: Women can naturally have sex on the brain just as much as men do. In fact, women are just as wild and lusty, and as promiscuous and voyeuristic, if not more, as men. Unfortunately we’ve been conditioned to think we are less sexual, and so the thought of anything else makes us clutch our pearls.
But not my girl K. Michelle. She’s embraced her sexual desires, free of constraints.
How free are you to in expressing your sexual desires?
