“Although most boys figure out how to bring themselves to orgasm by age thirteen, half of girls don’t have their first orgasms until their late teens, twenties, or beyond. Teenage girls widely agree that they get the message loud and clear that masturbation is something boys do, but girls don’t, can’t, or shouldn’t. The cultural focus on intercourse tells young women to expect they’ll begin to experience sexual pleasure once they have sex with a man (whether or not they’re even interested in sex with men). Nearly all teen boys, on the other hand, experience sexual pleasure long before they get their hands—or other body parts—into a partner’s pants. Despite the massive advances in women’s equality, young women’s sexuality is stuck in a surprising paradox. Young women are sold provocative clothes but aren’t taught where to find their own clitoris. Many girls give their boyfriends oral sex, but are too uncomfortable with their own bodies to allow the guys to return the favor. It’s still a radical act to say that women need and deserve access to information about their own sexual pleasure—not just about the risks and negative consequences of sex.”—Dorian Solot, I Love Female Orgasm: An Extraordinary Orgasm Guide.

also, today is my first math class in over three years.
i am so nervous, i’m going to be the oldest person in this class, i suck at math, wah wah wah. it’s not even counted for credit, it’s BASIC math skills which is a pre-requisite to the required math class. sigh.
i miss getting to places in the neighborhood in less than fifteen minutes. getting a good work out. dodging cars and the doors that swing open. spending time with my boyfriend on our bikes….and the warmer weather that allows me to do this.
i wish i was a hardass that can bike in the winter, but alas…
umm i think i left out some words in that... it was supposed to say: in a few short hours, your package will (finally) be on its way! yay!! and, um, if i didn't leave out any words, then disregard this. -jay z
