The Erotic Literary Salon will be held Tuesday, March 21. The evening will start with the Adult Sex-Ed Salon a one-hour program devoted to sex and sexuality. The audience will create this month’s theme. They will have the opportunity to pose any questions regarding sex and sexuality anonymously. Sexologist Susana Mayer, PhD, along with co-host Walter will facilitate the Adult Sex-Ed Salon and attendees interested in sharing their knowledge and experiences will join in the discussion.

 

“Media, Maturity & Masturbation: John and Walter will reprise a reading from five years ago, in which they explain concepts of self-love through the lens of their own respective generations—Baby Boomer and Millennial. Expect healthy doses of humor and confusion as they analyze the decades between using magazines and ubiquitous, free pornography as external aphrodisiacs.”

Did you know: …ejaculation and orgasm don’t actually need to happen at the same time. Why? Ejaculation and orgasm are two separate responses to stimulation. Ejaculation refers to the physical reflex that releases semen, and orgasm refers to the feeling of climax or pleasure as a result of physical and/or psychological stimulation.

For some men, orgasm and ejaculation both happen…but not at the same time. Some men may ejaculate after orgasm or before orgasm. Some men may not ejaculate at all. Other men might ejaculate but fail to orgasm.

If a man experiences early, late or no ejaculation, it’s time to see a doctor or urologist. Several different health conditions may influence the way a man’s body responds to stimulation. One example isretrograde ejaculation which occurs when, instead of exiting out of the penis, semen flows into the bladder. While this usually isn’t harmful to a man’s health, he may notice that he doesn’t ejaculate when he orgasms…and, in some cases, retrograde ejaculation can signal a complication with diabetes or medications.

Is Female Ejaculation the Same as Orgasm?

By Dr. Debby Herbenick

Question: 

When women squirt, is it the same thing as them having an orgasm? Or are they different?

My response: 

Female ejaculation (aka “squirting”) involves women releasing fluids through their urethra during sexual excitement or orgasm. It was described in some detail in the 1980s book The G Spot and has since gained all sorts of attention in various porn films. In reality, we don’t understand a whole lot about female ejaculation. Some studies have found that the fluids released are distinctly different from urine; in other research, it seems that some women are emitting a urine-like fluid. Generally, though, women who release fluids during sex are NOT peeing accidentally—just as men are not either. But because both men’s and women’s ejaculations occur through the urethra, there may be some urine-like residue still in the tube.

How common is it for women to squirt? We don’t know as there has been no good population based studies on the subject. Is it the same as orgasm? Well, it happens at the same time as orgasm for some women. Other women, however, squirt but do not orgasm. And even more commonly, women orgasm but do not squirt. In this way, it seems similar to men’s orgasm. Though men usually ejaculate when they orgasm, ejaculation and orgasm are actually two different processes.

Special Addition to Tuesday’s Erotic Literary Salon

Martha Cornog, author of The Big Book of Masturbation, will co-facilitate the Adult Sex-Ed section of the Salon along with sexologist and host Susana Mayer and Walter.

WG-5-ways

Martha Cornog spent six fascinating and fun years researching and writing The Big Book of Masturbation, which was also published in Russian. A former librarian, she has done several books about sexuality materials in library collections, and several books about graphic novels. Some of these books were coauthored by her late husband Timothy Perper, whose collection of short stories she recently self-published under the title Sex, Death, and the End of the World: Stories. She currently reviews graphic novels for Library Journal, a magazine for librarians.

She will talk briefly about her masturbation research and then announce a film to debut in Philadelphia on May 4th: Sticky: A (Self) Love Story, the first documentary feature film about masturbation. Written, produced, and directed by Nicholas Tana, the film includes interviews with sexologists, medical figures, authors, clergy, and people in the porn industry.

Sticky will make you laugh and make you think. Why is one of the most popular sex acts so hard to talk about? When Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders suggested we teach young people that masturbation is normal and it’s safe sex, she was fired. When entertainer Pee-wee Herman was arrested for jerking off in an adult theatre, the media-fueled outrage torpedoed his career for nearly a decade. When 14-year-old Matthew Burdette was surreptitiously videotaped in the boys bathroom reportedly playing with himself, and the video went viral, the merciless harassment from other kids led him to commit suicide. Masturbation itself didn’t hurt any of these people—but shame and blame around it did. (See film trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AxfVS_z1JX4)

Sticky: A (Self) Love Story will be shown May 4th, 7:30 p.m. at Studio Movie Grill, 53 South 69th Street, Upper Darby 19082. Tickets are $9.00. Reserve your ticket by April 27th—the event won’t happen unless a total of 67 tickets are spoken for by then. Here’s where to reserve a ticket:
