Ordinary Women, Extraordinary Sex...

It's a book written by Sandra Scantling and probably out of print by now, but I read it fourteen years ago and was surprised...

It described how a small percentage of women experience visual imagery during orgasm. I assumed everybody did, I certainly did. It came as a surprise to me that it wasn't the norm.

I've experienced everything from a simple color wash to full blown images of clouds in a summer-blue sky. Has anyone else experienced this? Just curious how it manifests in others.

it sounds akin to synesthesia...I know a synesthete, but she was having sex with a friend of mine, so I'd feel weird asking her about her orgasms, but now I'M curious.

I've actually gotten the sky as well, except without clouds- just full on sunlight too bright to see. The only other one I've gotten is fireworks, like I'm up inside them. That one happens a lot, actually.

I used to want to be a synesthete incredibly badly. I did a bunch of my old science projects on synesthesia. But I certainly don't have it. I've never really known why I've seen those two things when I orgasmed, but now I'm really curious.

I remember one time with my ex where I saw some sort of color wash (I think it was a blue-green thing possibly followed by a rainbow buts its been a few years to remember the details of it) at orgasm. There may have been one other time but as I said its been years so I don't remember every encounter and the following results >.

I once had a very earnest, drunken conversation with a good male friend about how he wanted to be a woman for the full-body orgasms. It all went downhill when he started talking about getting turned on by his own hypothetical boobs. Wink

Oh, that's very common in my experience. A lot of guys wistfully think about how they'd never leave the house if they only had {insert individual fetish}.

but, I've seen stars when the orgasms are strong enough. Does that count? No, probably not.

Unless I'm on psychedelic drugs, but then it's throughout, including especially good images at orgasm.

Sadly, no images here. In fact, I pity the man who'd want to have my orgasms. They are difficult to attain and on a scale by degrees I very rarely get release through really intense pleasure. It's more like my body will go through the motions, even as I try to eke every bit of orgasm pleasure I can. Same thing with masturbating, before anyone suggests it. It works better in the initial stages, but the hardest I've orgasmed is when my husband does, and it isn't reliable. Comparing sensations like this is just disappointing. Don't wish to be a woman. You could just as easily end up frustrated. I have a sex drive but very fickle sensitivity. Stupid complexities of pleasure...

. . .and fickle sex drives. Gotta love em. >.what goes where?!" and immediately goes off in search of cute kittens or some such. THEN there are teh times where I just want nothing to do with the idea. No positive or negative reactions to it just "Nope, not appealing, moving on. . . ". Then there's. . . .well, you get the idea.
. . . Then again it could be because I'm in the midst of a dry spell after my first partner >.
