Bartholin's Gland

« Requiem for the Hand Job |Main| Lady of the Night Suburbanite »

A guy I knew had a weird theory about the Bartholin's gland. These are little glands located to the side of the vaginal opening that secrete lubricant when the woman's sexually aroused. This guy thought they did more than that, though. He believed there was something in their secretions that was absorbed by a man's dick during sex, and that this absorption was what made penetrative M/F sex so much more satisfying than masturbation or a hand job or even oral or anal. He had big plans to analyze these secretions and isolate the substance and put it into a cream guys could slather on their cocks whenever they got horny. He thought it would calm them down, make them happy, and pretty much put an end to war and unhappiness.

The whole idea is crazy, of course, but it does bring up an interesting subject: just what is it about sex with another person that makes it so much better than, say, masturbation or sex with the best love-doll you can find? How much of the pleasure of sex is purely genital, and how much is something else, something emotional and interpersonal and mental?

I think about this every time I see some new list of sexual tricks and techniques designed to satisfy a lover. It reminds me that the important thing isn't how tight she is or how she moves her tongue, but her simple responsiveness and her enjoyment of you that makes sex good. That's good to know.
