What do you call nuts on a wall?
What do you call nuts on your chest?
What do you call nuts on your chin?
"regardless of the delicate balancing requiring to keep from suffocating him or breaking his nose"? this is highly unlikely, and can be dealt with by simply communicating this concern with said "man such as this".
This was, for me, the gem of the piece: the author argued that biopsies of women, whether for cancer detection or genetic testing, amounted to yet another use of scientific technology to further objectify women and thus subject them to the male gaze.
A former colleague of mind posted it on facebook (I say former because this is the precise kind of shit that led to my defection). To it, I replied, "I am forever grateful to my oncologist for objectifying me when he biopsied what turned out to be ovarian cancer."
So, call me pessimistic, but my money's not on parody.
It is obviously harder/impossible for the guy to FAKE an orgasm. That said, there is still a lot of pressure to give a convincing performance.
Afterwards they can get me a beer and a sammich.
In my experience, 69 is kind of like Dueling Banjos - a mix of taking turns, harmonizing, accompanying the other's lead.
Wouldn't this also be true for the man? Being unable to speak?
And.... Ummmm.... last time I checked a man sure as hell can feel "murmurs and breaths of delight".
But in true stereotypical feminist fashion she totally ignores the possibility of two men having sex and how that effects her dynamics. So....
That said, while I've considered myself to be a feminist since junior high (in a time and place where most of the girls weren't feminist, much less any of the other boys), I do find that many of the more strident feminists fall under a form of Poe's Law. Usually, though, what I've assumed was parody was actually sincerity.
Oh, and Lindy West needs to shut the fuck up as well.
tainte @37 That's a feature of 69ing, not "a problem". The girl won't lose her focus for very long because she'll get one or several orgasms, and then she'll want the stimulation to stop. After a few seconds she'll regain enough focus to bring the boy on to the edge of his orgasm, at which point he'll totally lose focus. Taking turns in losing focus is the trademark of good 69 ; no focus lost just means no one enjoyed it.
And I agree also with emmaz @41 : does Dan have to give fodder to the hateful misogynist Sloggers every. single. week. ? I mean, in real life I can't spend a day without being reminded I'm a designated victim of sexism, just because I wasn't born with some silly oversized and overextended clitoris dangling between my legs, and ovaries in a pouch behind it. And now, when we're getting at last to the point when even a Zimmerman wouldn't dare to spew a similar level of racist shit in public -- targetting "women as a whole" as the butt of hatred is still, if not even more, just humorous and funny and quite innocuous fair game.
There seems to be a genuine frustration with 69, but I doubt the universalization/politicization of that frustration is serious.
The best "excuse", if this is legitimate writing, is that the role of feminist theorists isn't to, you know, actually identify structural inequality, but to expound how such inequality might be practiced; it's up to others to determine if it's meaningful.
Not sitting in broad daylight, but also sticking out as would a sore thumb it the bullshit portion of comment 36's words (asserting that the sex act in question has only been participated in one time)
Something doesn't add up, and I cannot say for sure what it is other than I don't personally know any lesbians who wear strap-on while 69ing, although my roommate has just informed me I am confusing feminism with the female homosexuality.
All I know for sure is it is awful hard to engage in sex acts that include more than two people when two of them can't handle the emotional trauma of feeling obligated to "do a good job" and balance that feeling with enjoying the job being done
It's not wrong to prefer not to 69, however if there is not a punchline at some later point, the authors would be well advised to come up with truthful examples as to why they don't like that particular sex act
or better yet, inform them that there are some things in life you do not need any reason for your preference (such as who you choose to love and the acts you engage in with them, the simple reason "because I felt like it" or "because I don't feel like it" or already overkill when it comes to justifying yourself)
nobody cares why the two authors do or don't like 69ing
The next installment had better explain how the nose breaking event might happen, because that is the only intriguing thought any reader -- in their right mind -- is left with
Thanks for your expert opinion, Dirtclustit.
FFS, the "69 is awesome for everyone IF they're doing it right" position is every bit as solipsistic as the "69 is always terrible & lame" position. It's not a function of my "open mind" so much as it is a function of relative torso length and erection angle and whatnot. If you like it, enjoy. But to insist that everyone must like it unless they're doing it wrong is to beat your chest about how much more of a sexual badass you are than everyone else. Hang on, I'll take a moment for my sarcastic slow clap.
Frankly, some of my experiences with 69--and yes, I made a sincere, enthusiastic effort--mesh with the description in the much-mocked article. It depends on the partner I was 69-ing. I wouldn't go so far as to say that all 69 is "a misogynist's wet dream" or "distinctly capitalistic" or any other such absurd crap. But the difficulties with strained necks and suffocation ring true, as does the hilarious comment @34.
