Well that sucks. You would think most people would be sayin there sex gods or something.
 
2003-01-29 07:24:42 PM  
This is a case of thank and cuss women's lib. We think we are average but have been given expectations. Women all over the world appreciate how American women have 'trained' us to be good lovers.

Of course that is a personal observation, the rest of you Farkers are rotten lays.

Well I'm lucky at cards anyway.
 
2003-01-29 07:30:27 PM  
Maybe if our women weren't dead lays, guys would be inclined to "practice" more often...
 
2003-01-29 07:30:28 PM  
I think most people start bad, peak and then go downhill again.
It all averages out.
Actually reading the articles is for fools.

I am stupendous. My jock is all powerful and mighty!! I am great in bed!!!

Sex in a sack is difficult.
 
2003-01-29 07:33:21 PM  
that's better than thinking you are a porn star and just being a stinky loser

I got told yesterday by my girlfriend in a moment of brutal honesty that pretty much everything I do with her in the sack is wrong.

Maybe you should stop trolling the morgues for women. They can't move if they aren't breathing. ;)

2003-01-29 07:35:17 PM  
What is this "sex" thing you speak of?

What's a dickboard? Do they help?
 
2003-01-29 07:35:44 PM  
I'm ab-normally unaverage...as it...enjoy adventurous activities. So average, is far from me...
 
2003-01-29 07:36:11 PM  
Lets hear it for average!

I don't know, we're pretty popular. France, Germany, and the Arabs are all trying to fark us. (ba-dum ching)

It may be short, but it's skinny! wait.....

I have yet to meet a man who can re-create hot hollywood movie sex.
 
2003-01-29 07:39:35 PM  
Most people think they are average. What is so suprising, most people are. That's the definition of AVERAGE!
 
2003-01-29 07:39:47 PM  

What does average mean in terms of sex? As good as expected? As good as you think everyone else is?

Average doesn't have to mean bad.

Personaly, I'm happy. That's enough, IMHO.

Think about that.
 
2003-01-29 07:40:50 PM  
If you take a large sample of people and ask them how they are at anything, shouldn't you end up with "average" as the average?
 
2003-01-29 07:41:48 PM  
I think that hot hollywood sex makes us all feel like we aren't doing it right, but my girlfriend's not complaining.

Exactly! Some women are great in bed, but I swear at least half have no farking clue what they are doing. The same holds true for men as well I assume, but I have to laugh when women who are known as being totally lame in bed comment on their lovers. Was sex too quick? Maybe it's because you suck and the guy wants it over with--it happens.

Have any other guys noticed that women who aren't totally hot seem to be better lovers? I'm not kidding here. It seems that women who are a little overweight or aren't totally happy with their appearance tend to be better lovers than women who think they are gorgeous. It certainly isn't always true, but my friends and I have compared notes and it seems to be a better predictor of who will be better in bed than anything else.
 
2003-01-29 07:44:21 PM  
Men or women? The article doesn't really specify, so I guess that means that out of both sexes, Americans generally consider themselves "average" lovers.

Isn't that to be expected, what with bell curves and everything? Sixty-four percent of people, statistically, should fall within one standard deviation of the "average" amount of sexual prowess. Seventeen percent should be one standard deviation better, another seventeen percent should be one standard deviation worse. Continue ad infinitum.
Just like the IQ scale. Most people are average lovers, some people are genius-level lovers, and some people are mentally retarded lovers. . .

I am officially going to hell. I used the term "mentally retarded lovers." Help me.

Bush said he wants all american children to read above average. LOL

Scrotar, Wee, & Dirk - Actually, her and I were having a frank discussion about our bedtime activities, and she let me know (at my behest, I must add) that I'm lousy at a lot of things. On the plus side, now she can rebuild me from the ground up into some sort of good.... sex....guy.
 
2003-01-29 07:45:40 PM  
ummm mathematically, this must be true. a majority of people can not be above average. its just mathematically unfeasible.

Tell her you need practice.
Lots and lots of practice.

Bloodnut - I don't think that should be too much of a problem with her... her sex drive is greater than that of the average rabbit... or Farker, for that matter.

You are lucky. She could have just dumped you and given you the "It's not you it's me" line. Now at least you can work on it....
 
2003-01-29 07:48:36 PM  
Too many people stay with partners who are wrong for them sexually -- either they want it more or less or are too conservative, etc.

I'd give myself a 8 but I'm always striving to be a 10. Just haven't had much opportunity to test my new skillz heh. Swear to God, last boyfriend's comment after I answered his question as to what I wanted in bed: "Uhh..." Then he told his best friend I was just too weird for him. Jerk.
 
2003-01-29 07:49:09 PM  
All I can say is
LUCKY MAN
My girlfriend barely gives it up once or twice a week.
 
2003-01-29 07:49:13 PM  
OBB, were you brutally honest with her? Or did you not have any complaints?

That's the way to do it. Everyone has different tastes, so that doesn't mean you're a bad lover. Just learn what she likes and go with it.

When partners ask, things improve. This is an immutable law of lovemaking. You are normal.
 
2003-01-29 07:51:14 PM  
OBB,

You've got to be pretty farking comfortable with yourself to be with a really honest chick.

My last girlfriend was VERY honest, and it took some getting used to. I was used to chicks who would keep things to themselves and wouldn't let you know if there was something about you that they didn't like (that was changeable).

Thankfully, her criticisms of me never seemed to go into the bedroom. I don't know if my poor ego could've handled it :)
 
2003-01-29 07:51:58 PM  
Men aren't telling woman what they like and want and woman aren't telling men what they like and want.

Therefore they are pretty much just doing what they like and want.

You guys want to know what the key to sex is? Enjoy it, enjoy everything you do during it and SHOW it and it will all be good or for awesome.

Asking someone to do something isn't going to do anyone any good if you dont' want to do it or enjoy doing it so don't waste time.
 
2003-01-29 07:52:33 PM  
Maybe you can ask your SO if you can "practice" on her friends, OBB. You know....to increase her pleasure later on.
 
2003-01-29 07:52:34 PM  
I've always considered myself average, at best. My long-time girlfriend tells me I'm the best she's had, and she has plenty for comparison. (She's a lot more "experienced" than I am). However, I somehow doubt I'm this gifted wonder-lover. There's something that works really well between the two of us. I'd probably be pathetically lame with someone I picked up at a club, or something.

Does that make any sense?

Sudie - She had initially brought up the topic, and I did mention a couple small things that I (and I quote) "did not like as much". She initially told me that she didn't want to tell me what I was doing wrong, because she was worried it would hurt me, but I pressed, and she told me.

2003-01-29 07:54:04 PM  
I guess this actually says more about the honesty of most Americans than anything else...
 
2003-01-29 07:54:55 PM  
Well, OBB a lot of couples can be brutally open with each other in every area except sex. If you two can talk about it, then even work on it, you're close. You're a good couple. I think. Don't let her dump you now and make me look stupid.
