Sex is a Head Game!

April 30, 2012

 Sex is a head game based on myth, ignorance and misdirection.  The human body is a fantastic creation, much of it working just fine without any outside help.  Further it can be trained both physically and mentally to operate either beyond or below its “normal” functions.  Normal is defined “mathematically” as what most people do and think.

 A hasty generalization would be most of us are genetically predisposed to heterosexual relationships and inculcated to monogamy.  Some are not.   Within the majority, most are unaware of normal physiological sexual responses beyond small orgasms and many women are lacking even these.  We are trained and conditioned to deny our sexuality, our humanity.

 Most women in the USA have suffered sexual abuse in some form ranging from emotional abuse to sexual molestation (under 16) and rape.  This exists to some degree in every country in the world.  Our experience, including the myths we are taught to believe, uniquely shapes our perceptions.  Perceptions have their origins in our heads.  Ergo, sex is a head game.

 The myth under which most men suffer is sex is about pleasure: “getting their rocks off.”  Women are then either used like blow-up dolls for self-pleasure, or so much pressure is placed on men to “satisfy” their partner, they suffer emotional erectile dysfunction.  These are extremes, but they exist with an infinite range in between. 

 My experience and research have impacted my perception of sex as well.  Today, I see sex as a mechanism for transmitting love, where pleasure and ecstasy are by-products.  But we are not trained to love.  We are trained to not love, including in our intimate relationships.  Thankfully, some men have escaped the myths and conditioning and can love.  Not many, but they are out there!  Our re-training continues, for as it is said, “God isn’t finished with us yet.”

“The Mystery of Sex”

February 28, 2012

Napoleon Hill            Don’t blame me.  I didn’t say it.  Napoleon Hill said it.  It is the title of a chapter in one of his books.  Who th’ hell is Napoleon Hill, you ask?  He was the Deepak Chopra and Tony Robbins of the 1920’s and 1930’s.  His book, Think and Grow Rich, was published in 1937!  That’s seventy-five years ago!  That was even before MY time!

You can read this chapter on line at http://books.google.com/books?id=c86H36mgiM4C&pg=PP&&dq=According+to+Napoleon+Hill,+98%25+…#PPA182,M1  starting on page 182.

Here are some quotes from that book:

The emotion of sex brings into being a state of mind.  Because of ignorance on the subject, this state of mind in generally associated with the physical, and because of improper influences, to which most people have been subjected, in acquiring knowledge of sex; things essentially physical have highly biased the mind. 

The emotion of sex, has back of it the possibility of three constructive potentialities, they are—

1.      The perpetuation of Mankind.

2.      The maintenance of health, (as a therapeutic agency, it has no equal).

3.      The transformation of mediocrity into genius through transmutation. (Bold emphasis is mine.)

 “Highly biased”?  See my blog on dysassociative sex.  His items 1 & 2 are what I call the pleasure/procreation paradigm.  But, his item #3 is why I wrote The Sacred Female!  The transmutation he speaks of may be a result of the transcendental experience I speak of.  However, the transcendental experience may not be necessary for the transmutation.  (Transmutation is simply the changing of one element or form of energy into another.)  But, more Hill.

Love, romance and sex are all emotions capable of driving men to heights of super achievement.  Love is the emotion which serves as a safety valve, and insures balance, poise, and constructive effort.  When combined, these three emotions may lift one to an altitude of a genius. There are genuii, however, who know but little of the emotion of love.  Most of them may be found engaged in some form of action which is destructive or at least, not based upon justice and fairness toward others.  If good taste would permit, a dozen genii could be named in the field of industry and finance who ride ruthlessly over the rights of their fellow men.  They seem totally lacking in conscience.  The reader can easily supply his own list of such men.  (Bold emphasis mine.)

Can you imagine?  He wrote this long before George Bush was born!  Nah!  Bush is no genius.

Now, you may think I wrote The Sacred Female to enhance the pleasure of women.  OK.  I did.  Why?  Accepting the various sexual responses of women is a part of loving them.  It seems the greater their sexual pleasure, the easier it is for them to provide this transcendental experience for men.  It clears the decks for action.  However, MEN ARE THE RECIPIANTS OF THIS GENIUS!  I wrote the book so men could survive and prosper in the tough times ahead.  I figured women would be the best teachers.

PS.  You can read The Sacred Female at http://authonomy,com, a Harper Collins UK site.  I’ve tried figuring out the URL, but unless you paste it into a new browser, it won’t work.    Here it is:

A “Higher Purpose” for Men and Women

February 25, 2012

(This will be the “Author’s Note” in The Alchemy of Erotic Love… for Guys.)

kissing  When it comes to women, men are taught to view them as either “brood cows” or “Pleasure Palaces.”  It wasn’t always this way.  We are taught to penetrate them as we did the enemy long ago, with sword and spear from behind a shield.  Even the word, vagina, means “scabbard” or “sheath” in Latin.  The bedroom is not a battlefield!  We treat them as a glass of beer, sipping only the frothy head, leaving the delicious nectar beneath to go flat and stale.  We do this at our own peril!

Join me as we look at woman without the perfumed blinders of pleasure and/or procreation.  We will look at her scientifically through the magnifying lens of love.  This lens is not the mushy gushy stuff of chick flicks, rather the lens that focuses the sun’s energy on us to ignite the creative flames of men’s souls.

I will not lead you down some primrose path of ethereal foo-foo talk.  I have been there and they all dead-end for me.  I wanted hard-core answers!  However, science hasn’t been there yet.  The flame in me can only suggest what science might find when they get there.  If my scientific speculation on what might be going on in the human body is wrong, it doesn’t make any difference.  The results are there, if you want them.

Many Gurus will tell you, ”I am right.  Believe me.”  I won’t.  As the old saying goes, “The proof of the pudding is in the tasting.”  Don’t believe me!  Try it for yourself.  Only when you have the results, will you believe me, and my speculative mechanisms still could be wrong.  I don’t think so, but it makes no difference.  The results are there, if you want them.

Oh, yes.  Our higher purpose?  To love and be loved.  That simple!

It’s a Sad Fact…

January 10, 2012

It is a sad fact that “knowledge” about love and sex has been dictated to us over the centuries.  Most of it is myth and misinformation.  We believe we have to “like” some one in order to love them.  Although this is quite true in intimate relationships, is not true about the rest of the world.  We can wish for, or pray for, or think about the highest good of others without even knowing who they are or what their highest good is!  We may abhor their behavior, but still wish for their highest good.

When it gets up close and personal—here I speak of acquaintances, friends and neighbors—we have the opportunity to not only “think about,” but actually do something that may be in their best interest and higher good.  Sometimes, it is just staying out of their way.

For most guys, and a lot of women, love has been removed from sex, or confused with it.  We view sex simply as a pleasurable activity with someone we may or may not love, like or even know.  Well, yeah.  We have a natural sexual desire.  It comes from the paraventricular nucleus in the hypothalamus; the same place thirst comes from.  So, as long as we get thirsty, we will have sexual desire. (Pass me a glass of water.)  The hypothalamus is the size of a pea and the paraventricular nucleus is a tiny part of it.  I never knew such a little thing could get me in so much trouble!

 Intimate sexual love takes time.  There are two reasons for this. 

  1. Biochemical.  It takes longer for the bonding hormone oxytocin to build up in the man than it does in the woman.
  2. Social.  We all wear masks when on the hunt: both men and women.  To get to really know a person takes time.  We have to be comfortable with them and that is a function of who we really are as well as who they are.  Some wear masks all their lives.

When we do get to know them—emotionally—then we can get to know them physically.  The Kama Sutra recommends taking three days of non-genital erotic play after marriage to get to know each other’s bodies.  There are many more erogenous zones on the human body than the genitalia, and they are all different for each of us.

 It seems today, everybody is worried about the “Big O.”  First, that is only one of many sexual responses, some making the Big O seem like a non-event and sexual contact, intercourse or masturbation is not necessary to produce any of them!  But, we haven’t been told this or trained in it.  Honestly, from what I’ve heard from most guys their “Big O” isn’t much more than prostate maintenance coupled with an ego trip.

 We’ve heard about “magic buttons” on women, like the clitoris and G spot.  But for both genders the real “magic button” is the essence of your beloved!  Get to know it, and then open yourself to let love reverently flow through you to that essence.  Think about transmitting love rather than producing pleasure.  Now, you are making love instead of having sex.  You’ll be amazed at the difference!

Joyful Bioluminescence

November 11, 2011

ArtNobleFireflies Who am I?

I am a man blessed by knowing some fantastic women in my life and cursed with curiosity.  When I say, “knowing” I mean both in the Biblical sense and over the Internet.  The original title of this piece was “Orgasmic Bioluminescence.”  Because I observed it on orgasm as did the people I contacted or who contacted me to validate this experience. I quote two of them on the back cover of The Sacred Female.  A woman in Arkansas told me when she wanted to glow, she’d call a certain fellow in town, he’d come up the mountain, they would get it on, she would glow and that was it.

BUT, a woman recently shared with me she glowed while singing “And the Glory” in a chorus performing The Messiah.  Additionally, she was carrying a “bundle of joy” in her belly at the time.  Afterward, people asked her why the spot light was on her during that song and she had no idea what they were talking about!  The good news is it is not just about sex! And, we can be joyful in being with our beloved.

So what is it?

Bioluminescence is the opposite of photosynthesis.  You know, the process that takes light to activate chlorophyll in leaves to turn them green.  We also use light energy to run our bodies.  Sunshine is a “natural” Vitamin D.  Not really.  We take on the photons (light energy) to manufacture Vitamin D in our bodies.  Bioluminescence is simply the giving off of photons rather than the taking on.  We see it normally in fireflies and certain marine organisms.

What causes it?

Scientists, in their study of fireflies, etc., don’t know, but believe it to be associated with Adenosine Tri Phosphate (ATP).  ATP is like a wallet for energy, produced by the cells.  I don’t know about fireflies, but it carries energy through our bodies.  It this specific case, when we create an excess of energy, it is given off as photons through the skin.  It is rare and there is no money in it so science doesn’t study it.  Few have even heard of it.

How does it occur?

I learned from Chyna Pi in the ancient Sacred Shamanic Sexual texts it is called, “Dragon’s Fire/Breath” and is the result of a breathing exercise.  Think of hyperventilation.  When we engage in rapid, deep breathing, our fingers and toes go numb.  I imagine this exercise is something like that.  We build up O2 and reduce CO2 in our bodies.  But, there is more to it.  It also has to do with mental discipline and clearing the mind.  But consider, when making love, where you are focused on giving love through your body to your partner and open to receiving love from them, And there is not much else on your mind.

Now consider as you approach the orgasmic plateau, with a love focused mind, the autonomic nervous system takes over and naturally sets up the breathing rhythm to produce these results, mimicking the Shamanic breathing exercise.  Further, PET scans of humans having an orgasm show oxygen flow to the brain is shut off, where fMRI’s show an increase in blood flow.  There are a lot of things happening in the human body about which we have no knowledge.  We can only speculate, as I just did.  Let’s just say humans are fantastic creatures.

Here we can see how singing, a task that requires specialized breathing, can play into this.  We can also see how joy of singing this particular piece and the joy of being physically bonded with our beloved can produce this.  So, here we have a phenomenon that can be produced out of pure joy and the breathing associated with it, or simply by breathing alone, essentially mimicking the joy we feel.  Of course, this is speculation, but I like speculating this way.

Chicken or egg?

None of the men and women I contacted who claim to have observed or done this, ever mentioned “Dragon’s Fire/Breath” or “Shamanic Sex.”  Until I met Chyna Pi.  So, I’m thinking the non-sexual breathing exercise arose from sexual experience, not the other way around.  But, I also think the animal headed humans we see in ancient carvings from around the world arose from a transcendent sexual experience called Trespasso.  But, who knows?

This should not be considered a “goal” of sex, unless you have studied for years under a shaman who is familiar with it.  (There are few today.)  This is probably an expression, a physical manifestation of love and joy: the joy of being bonded with your beloved.  Simply focus on love and let go of everything else.  Something else just as wonderful may happen.  In the mean time, let us light up the world with the joy of being with our beloved.

LOVE ~ Sex ~ BODY

October 25, 2011

 

Our ignorance about sex is a root problem of the world’s social and economic ills.  Further, we are told to stay ignorant!  When we do “look” at sex, it is generally under a microscope, behind closed doors.  It is not a topic for public discussion.  “It’s bad.”  In the general consciousness of man, we are laden with myth and disinformation, essentially designed to keep us ignorant.

The first step in our brainwashing is to separate men from women with stories like the Myth of Lilith and “authoratitive” documentation such as the Malleus Maleficarum, the most misogynistic document in the history of man.  Next, we separate  sex from love.  Sex is bad.  Love is good.  Therefore they are separate.  Unfortunately, too many people, mostly women, recognize these things belong together.  The task is to get men on the same page.

The next step in our brainwashing is to focus on pleasure.  Under the “right” circumstances, and there are many, sexual activity releases various hormones and neurotransmitters into the body, giving us the sense of pleasure.  Whoopee.  But, for most this sense of pleasure is like McDonalds compared to the ecstasy of Chateaubriand available to us.  We are putting th em-PHA-sis on the wrong syl-LAB-le.  Then we are told feeling pleasure is bad, so when we do, we must be guilty of something? 

The third step is to take the “bad box” into which we have placed sex and color it with conditions so that even if a little love squeezes through, it is so “conditionalized” we are deprived of the full advantages to mankind.  We are being brainwashed out of our humanity!

This is a brief statement of the problem.  The solution is integrative education.  It is not difficult to imagine every human being on the planet having a slightly to totally different perspective on love and sex, including religious, spiritual and scientific leaders in their various fields.  Many in sexual science do not even consider the impact of love in their experiments.  There are a few.  Many spiritual leaders tell us to “get centered,” then take a cookie cutter to our genitalia in the center of our bodies!

Kabbalahist Karen Berg, teaches, “God is energy.”  God is Love, so Love is energy.  I have a different perspective too.  Perhaps when we can get together and learn from each other, we will all begin to understand the fantastic benefits of sexual love.

An Overview

October 22, 2011

Sex is at the root of life: without it, there would be no life!  It is a part of life we generally put into “boxes” of different shapes, colors and sizes, isolating it from the rest of life.  For the most part, we remain ignorant of values other than pleasure and/or procreation and even limit ourselves in these areas.

 

Love is a “many splendored” spectrum.  Scientists all over the world contribute to knowledge of aspects of this spectrum and its beneficial impact on humans in specific areas.  We talk about “making love” which for many is simply a justification for having sex.  Our concepts of love vary from person to person as do the boxes into which we put sex.

 

We are at a point in history where science is making inroads into discoveries about the human body from sub-microscopic discoveries about our genetic code to gross anatomical and physiological discoveries about our sexual bodies.  Even our “psychological bodies” are falling into the realm of science.  Perhaps, as the saying goes, “God isn’t finished with us yet.” 

 

Since Einstein and the field of quantum mechanics, everything seems to be about energy, even life itself!  Energy, then, may be a common denominator for viewing love, sex and the impact of these things on the human body.

 

In reality, it makes no difference what science discovers.  Science can only put names to what happens; it will happen with or without names.  However, science can show possible mechanisms for our continuing evolution, beyond the standard gene pool theory.

 

At this time, there is little or no integration of the various disciplines bringing these topics under the umbrella of life.  Perhaps it is time to begin to integrate the fields?  The average man on the street requires no knowledge of quantum mechanics or anatomy or genetics to accomplish the improvements in his life.  As Hill put it in 1937, “The combination of love, sex and romance can raise a man from mediocrity to the altitude of genius.”[1]  It happens!

Chyna Pi

October 18, 2011

I “met” Chyna Pi on My Space a few years ago.  She is a “sex worker” practicing Shamanic Sex.  When I met her, I didn’t know there was such a thing as Shamanic Sex.  In that it is a discipline, it is like Tantra.  Some would call Chyna a whore, prostitute, and other derogatory names.  I don’t.  She is a teacher.

 It was Chyna who explained to me what I call “Orgasmic Bioluminescence” is the same thing as “Dragon’s Fire/Breath,” a Shamanic breathing exercise that results in bioluminescence.  Sex isn’t necessary.  (Bioluminescence is the opposite of photosynthesis.  In photosynthesis, the body takes on light energy, photons, to perform a task.  Bioluminescence is simply the release of photons from the body.)

 I observed this in my partner of a few years ago and I think I was too awe-struck to be scared!  I’ve chatted on line with women around the world who have experienced this; one told me her husband also glows.    I also mention this response in The Sacred Female.  The only thing I can figure out is that as we reach the orgasmic plateau, our breathing sometimes naturally mimics the Shamanic exercise?

 I have a dream!  I want to get a bunch of multi-disciplined scientists together for a conference on Love, Sex and God, then start the conference with Chyna Pi demonstrating Dragon’s Fire/Breath.  I’m thinking of Dr. Beverly Whipple in sexual science, Dr. Bruce Lipton in microbiology, Dr. Lissa Rankin, Ob/Gyn, Dr. Francine King in Psychiatry, Dr. Gina Ogden in Psychology, a couple of Russians who are working with thought energy impacting our DNA, Karen Burke, the woman who teaches the Kabbalah in Southern California where God is energy, Dr. Ted McIlvenna at the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality, and a few others.  I’m mean.  I just want to warp their minds.

 We humans are fantastic creatures, especially women.  When men begin to let go of all the BS ideas we’ve been fed over the centuries, we’ll know how fantastic we are too!

ILLUSTRATED SEXUAL ANATOMY – A DIFFERENT VIEW.

September 29, 2011

ILLUSTRATED SEXUAL ANATOMY – A DIFFERENT VIEW.

Sexual science, and even society today, views sex as a pleasurable activity.  It is for many, and for many, not.  Perhaps this is because we put the cart before the horse.  The cart is pleasure and the horse is love.  Even science focuses on sexual anatomy as structures or areas that produce pleasure.  Further, they refer to various proteins (neurotransmitters and receptors, enzymes and hormones) as the source of this pleasure.  But, the creation of these proteins is a function of our genes and science is beginning to show our thought energy is one of the major factors in gene expression.  (Genes are like switches.  “Expression” simply means turning the switch on.)

This different view of sexual anatomy looks at the various anatomical structures as energy producers, a more basic approach.  This is because our “thought energy” as reflected in our attitudes, along with physical stimulation, can not only express various genes, but also prevent their expression!

One of the attributes of energy is that it can be transmitted.  In this different view of sexual anatomy, we will look at the major nerve pathways from the genitalia as “transmission lines” from the various “power plants” in the human body and represent them as an electrical schematic.   Where previously we viewed love as some unknown energy to get a better handle on it, now we are dealing with “hard energy:” generally electrochemical energy.  Most of it is specifically unknown in terms of which ion is doing what to whom, but it is recognized as energy, though some of the terminology is euphemistic, like “chemical signals.”

We will show the structures in the human body that generate this “hard energy,” the sensitive areas, and the nerve pathways by which this energy is transmitted to the brain.  There may be more, but science hasn’t found them yet.  For clarity, we will show the structures in one diagram, and the sensitive areas with the nerve schematic in another.  I apologize for these draft sketches, for which either an artist or anatomist would shoot me, however they do convey two points: 1.  The female genitalia are far more complex than male genitalia, and 2.  The electrical schematic shows a possible biological mechanism for the Kundalini sexual response.

Fig1.  Female Genitalia.

 

Fig. 2 Electrical Schematic of Female Genitalia Nerve Pathways

 Pudendal nerve. 

Now, you don’t have to know these nerve-names, but as long as they have them, we’ll use them.  They are viewed as simply different transmission lines.  The pudendal nerve pathway innervates, or serves, the clitoris and the perigenital skin.

The clitoris is the first structure.  This is not an appendage, or something that is just stuck on.  We only see a little of it on the outside.  The nerve endings in the external clitoris are covered with Pacinian corpuscles.  These are like little socks over the individual nerve endings, making them very sensitive to vibration and pressure.

The drawing above shows only about 30% of the clitoris.  This is a magnificent structure and metaphorically representative of woman: there is a lot more inside than what we see on the outside.

The clitoris has roots on the inside.  It splits over the urethra and has two legs, each called crus, giving it a wishbone shape.  These legs insert on the anterior, or front wall of the vagina near the bottom.  The internal “legs” of the clitoris not only insert on the anterior wall of the vagina, but wrap around the whole darn thing.  And that is not all.  Alongside each crus, or cura, are bulbs of erectile tissue.  Gentlemen are familiar with erectile tissue.  During the arousal phase, many women will have this erectile tissue engorged, just like men’s.  Where the male’s sticks out, facilitating our entry of them, these wishbone legs may spread, opening the vagina slightly, also facilitating their entry by us.  This is commonly referred to as a “wide-on,” but scientists might call it “female erection?”

 clitoris

This sketch only shows the part wrapping around the vagina.  The next one shows even more of the structure, but not as complete.

 clitoris sketch

(Courtesy, Museum of Sex. New York, NY.)

The penis also has about 2/3 of the structure inside.  So, the average guy can now honestly claim eighteen inches.  But, what really counts is the size of your love, not your love organ.  The more conditions you impose on your beloved and yourself, the less love you can allow to flow through you.  And it is apparently our love that transforms us.  Sex alone may not do it.

In males, the pudendal nerve is associated with penile skin, scrotum and perineum (perigenital skin).  We lose 50% of our penile skin on circumcision.  The word  “penis” comes from a word meaning “animals tail.”[1]  Think of a dog.  (Many women do, so it won’t be difficult.)  The tail might stick straight up, or straight out as in pointing to prey, or hang between its legs.   It also wags when it is happy.  The word for penis in Sanskrit is “lingam,” which translates to “wand of light.”  One cannot help but wonder, if the word “Lingam” was originally the “wand of enlightenment?”  Or perhaps, the first “magic wand?”  So, gentlemen, have a little more respect for that thing.  And get a lot more respect for the yoni, or sacred place.  Right now, most all of us just see pleasure and there is so much more!

Right underneath the clitoris is the opening for the urethra, or “pee hole.”  This is also the orifice through which female ejaculate comes.  Around the opening of the urethra (meatus) is a very sensitive area called the “U” spot.[2]   It is not known if it is innervated by the pudendal nerve or not, but it would make sense.  Further, this is also a sensitive area for men on the glans penis (head).   It is best to point out here that all the “spots” are simply areas of greater sensitivity than the surrounding area.  These are not anatomical structures and therefore cannot be surgically modified.

Fig. 3 Electrical schematic of Male Genitalia

Perigenital skin.  The skin in this area is very sensitive and generally responds to light stroking, either digital or oral-lingual.  The pudendal nerve ties into the sacral nerve at the base of the spine at S-2 and S-3 (second and third vertebrae in the Sacral area) and the nerve impulses are transferred up the spinal column to the brain.  The term “sacral “ nerve comes from the word “sacred.”  Again, in ancient Sanskrit, the word for the female genitalia is “yoni,” which means “the sacred place.”  Also, this area, at the base of the spine, is the home of the Hindu “sacred life snake” named Kundalini.

The pudendal nerve enters the spine between L – 4, and 5, as well as S – 1, 2, 3 and 4.  L is a designator for the Lumbar area of the spine, and S is for the Sacral area.  These are being mentioned and shown for a specific reason, revealed in the next chapter.

So far, we only have three highly erogenous zones for women.  We are going to wind up with 16 for women and only six for men.  Are you beginning to see why women are such fantastic creatures?  And this is just the beginning!

Pelvic Nerve.

The pelvic nerve innervates the perigenital skin, the vaginal barrel in front of the prostate, the cervix and the rectum.  It is also believed to innervate the female prostate.  Note the perigenital skin is served by two major nerve pathways: pelvic and pudendal.

The first third of the vagina seems to have a higher concentration of pelvic nerve endings than the rest of the vaginal barrel. The sensitive area through the anterior wall near the opening where the swollen tissue or glands from the female prostate protruded onto the wall, was known as the “G spot” from 1982 on, and brought a great deal of attention to our sex lives in terms of additional pleasure for women.   It was thought, but not scientifically shown, to influence the “vaginal orgasm.” As sexual arousal increased, the prostate became engorged, which may increase the “size of the G spot.”  The G spot is not an anatomical structure.  It is the Sexologist’s term for a sensitive area where a response may be elicited when stimulated.  Not all women like, or respond to this stimulation, and prefer other areas to be stimulated.  The terminology of “G spot” did a great deal of good by focusing the general public’s, and science’s attention on female sexual anatomy.

Since we have mentioned the vagina, the origin of the word might be inserted here.  In 1559, Matteo Realdo Colombo, an Italian anatomist, writing in De Re Atonomica, described this anatomical structure as akin to the sheath or scabbard that holds the sword, literally in Latin, vagina equals scabbard.[3]   This is in keeping with the later, ancient thought that men are “penetrators.”

Female Prostate.  Galen, the famous Greco-Roman physician, first described the female prostate before the year 200 AD.  The female prostate is not as well defined as the male prostate.  The male prostate is composed of about 10 to 20 glands and ducts, nicely packaged in the Prostatic Capsule and snuggled up next to the bladder at the back end of the urethra.  The female prostate is composed of up to 100 glands and ducts, or more, around the urethra: hence the interim name, “periurethral glands.”  “Pariurethral” simply means around the urethra.  So, from that standpoint, the male prostate is also a “pariurethral gland.”

 

Figure 4. Female Prostate.

This drawing shows the arrangement of ducts common to about 10% of women.  Sixty-six percent have these ducts bunched up toward the meatus and 6% have the distribution more bunched up in the center of the urethra.  That percentage is based on over 200 autopsies of Caucasian women.  In different parts of the world, the percentages may vary, to the point where we say that the female prostate is like the nose: they are all different, some small, some large, some with bumps and some without.

While we are here on the G spot, if you will turn the drawing on the side, face up, it is easy to see how with the standard missionary position it is easy to miss, or not fully engage this area.  Various modifications of the missionary position can help alleviate this oversight.  We will mention that Grafenberg, for whom the G spot was named by Dr. Whipple and Dr. John Perry, suggests rear entry, or doggie style, to fully engage the G spot.[4]  When stimulating the G spot digitally, it is generally best to use two fingers, one on either side.  This also picks up the insertion points of the clitoris’s legs, or cura!  The pelvic nerve enters the spinal column at S-2 – S-4.  This is simply between the 2nd 3rd and 4th vertebrae in the sacral region of the spine.

The pelvic nerve only innervates one area in the rectum for men.  That’s four more for women totaling seven and one for men totaling four.

Hypogastric nerve.

The hypogastric nerve innervates the cervix and the uterus.  The cervix opens into the vagina.  While we are in the vagina—interesting thought—let’s go all the way to the top-front near the cervix.  This part is called the fornix and it also has been shown to contain a sensitive area.  The nerve connections are not known.  It is called “the A spot.”  That’s five.

On the posterior, or back wall of the vagina, there are a group of cells called the interstitial cells of Cajal.[5]  These are energy producers: calcium ions.  They are referred to as “electrical wave producers.”  Energy!  They are generally, or were first found, near the heart and in the intestinal tract.   From their proximity to the heart, they are called “pacemaker cells.”  Calcium ions trigger dopamine and serotonin neurotransmitters and receptors among other things.  These cells are additionally stimulated by pressure, which may be sexually induced.  Then we not only have nerve endings but also these little rascals producing ions, if we don’t hold them back.  These are connected to some unknown nerve nexus.  They are also found in the corpora cavernosum (penis “muscle”), so we have them too.[6]  This gives us two more specific, but suspected areas for women, possibly innervated by the hypogastric or pelvic nerves, or both.  We also have one for men.

There are now a total of four different areas (two just suspected) associated with the hypogastric nerve, some working in conjunction with other nerve pathways.  So the total for women is 12.  In men, the hypogastric nerve is associated with the testes and the prostate.  This totals 7 areas for men and we haven’t finished with women!  The hypogastric nerve has three different insertion points in the thoracic area of the spinal column at Th-10, Th-11 and Th-12.  “Th” refers to the thoracic area of the spine.

We have to understand that for the past few hundred years, there has been a guy here, or a guy there, that has scientifically looked at specific parts of female sexual anatomy and physiology.  But only in the past 50 years or so have these people come together, comparing notes and arguing over the “rightness” and “wrongness” of various scientific conclusions in this field.  As an example, a Malaysian physician, Chua Chee Ann, discovered the “A” spot in 1993.  Prof. Ali A. Shafik, from Egypt, wrote on the interstitial cells of Cajal in 2007!  This is what advances science and they have a long way to go!  But, many of the detrimental myths that we currently live with, now are being shattered by science.

Vagus nerve

The ladies have one more major nerve pathway in the genitalia: the Vagus nerve pathway.  It innervates the cervix and the uterus.  The vagus nerve doesn’t go up the spinal column.  It wanders around a woman’s body, leaving a path like some women on a mall-shopping trip!  “Vagus” means wanderer.  Now, of course, the male vagus nerve is much more squared away.  Just as our prostate is neatly packaged and squared away.  We are so squared away that sometimes we could think our vagus nerve travels at right angles around our body.  We are so interested in being squared away, we forgot to stop and ask for directions.  You know us guys. So, our vagus nerve never got connected to our genitalia.  Really, the male vagus nerve pathway pretty much follows the same path and connects to the same structures as the female, excluding the genitalia.

But, thanks to women, all is not lost!  The Vagus nerve is known as the “nerve of compassion.”  “In a series of controversial papers, physiological psychologist Steve Porges has made the case that the vagus nerve is the nerve of compassion, the body’s caretaking organ.”[7]  Although ours is not hooked up to our genitalia, we have many other ways of showing compassion.  When we compassionately say, “My heart goes out to you,” we aren’t kidding.  The vagus nerve is connected to many of our anatomical structrues, including the heart.  Perhaps women feel compassion more “deeply” than men simply because of this connection at the cervix.

Note that we have three major nerve pathways in the area of the cervix: pelvic, hypogastric and now the vagus nerve pathways.  It is the stimulation of this area, along with the others, that creates what Dr. Barbara Keesling calls The Super Sexual Orgasm.[8]  It could also be called an Optimal Blended orgasm.  We have all four major nerve pathways being stimulated sending impulses to the brain.  But, be careful.  There are some areas around the cervix where the “skin,” or epithelial tissue, is only one cell thick!  It can be easily damaged.  And guys, with the woman on top, gravity pulls her cervix down, so you can save your money on Enzyte.

In her book, The Super Sexual Orgasm, she describes this orgasm as being something much more different that a vaginal orgasm and believe me it is!  The likable thing about her book is that it gave exercises for women to become more comfortable with their own sexuality and with their partner.  It is this comfortability with our sexuality that allows for these orgasms to occur.  That brain of ours is so cluttered up with a bunch of garbage, it just automatically shuts down our pleasure no matter how much energy we are sending it.  Our thoughts, even the ones we don’t know we have, do a lot of controlling in our lives and especially in our sex lives.  And gentlemen, it is a part of our job to help our partner become more comfortable with her sexuality as we become more comfortable with our own.  And make her comfortable with who we are.

So what is the bottom line?  Women have a greater capacity for generating this electrochemical energy than men.  They have at least 14 structures and areas, served by four major nerve pathways where we have 7 structures and areas served by three major nerve pathways.  We exclude the hypogastric and vagus nerve connection in the uterus because the stimulation may be secondary, rather than primary.  This energy, when released does work and work over time is power.  That is a simple engineering definition of power.  And it can be believed by some to be the power that alters our brain and body chemistry to make us better human beings, to raise us to the altitude of genius, by “building the muscles” of our consciousness.

There may be more structures in the female genitalia that are “activated” in a secondary fashion: that is not by direct contact, such as those in the uterus.  The female genitalia are amazing and we have just begun the scientific journey.

One last note: the most important sex organ is the brain.  All of these above won’t work as intended without the involvement of the brain and the mind!  We will continue to discuss the impact of this organ as we continue.  For example, the nerve endings in the uterus are not mechanically stimulated, but they work anyway.

So they have it.  Power.  How do we get it?  It is a gift that we must be willing to receive, just as her love is a gift to us.  How this is transmitted, we can only guess.  It is idiopathic.  (Don’t you love that word: “idiopathic?”) It is as though some of this energy escapes the unshielded parts of the nerve’s axon, or trunk and it goes through her vaginal wall onto and through the thin skin of our penis, our wand of enlightenment, enabling us and providing us with an experience, beyond our wildest dreams.  Or perhaps it is excess energy from the interstitial cells of Cajal.  Then again, it may simply be our own love-energy, reflecting off the polished mirror of her love.  If for no other reason than this fantastic anatomy and physiology, this capacity to generate this energy and power, women deserve to be treated with much more dignity and respect than has been afforded them over the centuries.  It is time for a change.  Let’s hope we make it.
