How does my name disprove evolution?

Why do creationists care about my name?

"The mate-choice hypothesis states that female orgasm has evolved to function in mate selection in order to better attract mates who will be invested long-term or to select higher quality sperm for higher quality offspring. ...

There is some evidence to suggest that female (and male) orgasm aids in pair-bonding through the release of the anxiety-reducing and calming hormone oxytocin, especially in women, but that's about as close as any of this literature gets to female sexual pleasure."



An anecdotal impression along these lines for whatever that's worth, but I've always been impressed and a little bit frightened by the power of the Female Orgasm to turn an apparently sane woman into an addled creature who's obsessed with diamond jewelry and baby names.

Creationists scream Yahweh during orgasms?

Evolution? Not true, women have orgasms because they're in bed with me.

My girlfriend screamed Jehova during sex, so I hit her with a rock.
 
2012-12-13 12:56:57 PM  
Simple logic.

Sex had to be rewarding and thus enticing for women to want to participate so that the species could be propagated.

Modern technology (test tube conception) has now made the female orgasm obsolete pertaining to its primary function.

I've been wondering what atheistic alternatives to "Oh God!" would be. I can't think of any that are sexy, easy to say, and convey the message of pleasure to the other person.

Females can have orgasms?

How?

This is ridiculous.

Women can't have orgasms!

Most male farkers scream the name of the person they're having sex with. In other words, their own name.

People scream during orgasms? Weird
 
2012-12-13 02:25:00 PM  
They all scream "Eric"? I thought that was just my wife's pet name for me during sexytime

Interestingly, another recent study also published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior found that women who faked orgasm performed a greater number of mate retention behaviors than women who didn't fake orgasm, perhaps offering more evidence to support the mate-choice hypothesis.


Is that the beej or buttsecks?

2012-12-13 02:26:52 PM  
hmmm, somehow I doubt their women have ever had an orgasm.
 
2012-12-13 02:27:08 PM  
Women do not worship "baby".

...on second thought thought, yeah, they do.

So I clicked the article expecting to conclude this was just another dipshiat spouting whatever random BS totally came into her mind as she was writing to meet her deadline and passing it off as expert advice. Except she linked primary research articles on PubMed. Doesn't seem often you get an actual expert opinion on sex related stuff. Kinda cool.

Even better if you can have someone crash through your bedroom wall while you're coming.

The female orgasm is an artifact. A delightful one for sure but an artifact nonetheless. All the hypotheses attempting to explain its retention are stupidly weak and convoluted. The parsimonious explanation - that women have orgasms because men have orgasms and are neurologically wired similarly - is more than sufficient.

Not every trait is adaptive. Many are neutral and hang around because it's more costly to get rid of them.
 
2012-12-13 02:36:44 PM  
Wait, only religious people can say "oh god" while squirting baby batter?

I've been on Fark long enough to know atheists are among the most frustrating loosely banded people who can't seem to agree with one another on the subject. Lame, boring, argumentative. Even if they're right, they're not pleasuring anyone in bed. In fact, if for some ungodly reason you decide to sleep with an atheist, it would be to your benefit to yell "oh god!" It will either 1) get rid of them, or 2) anger them to the point that you'll get a much more assertive fark than the lame one you were previously getting.

No one is to stone anyone until I blow this whistle; even if, and I want to make this clear, even if they do say Jehovah.

So, men get nipples and women get orgasms in this trade?

I thought I read once that it increases the likelihood of conception, though. The muscle contractions, etc.
 
2012-12-13 02:40:59 PM  
FTFA: The main argument against women's orgasm being explained by an evolutionary perspective is how infrequently it happens during intercourse. Most women require additional stimulation in order to climax during intercourse (usually in the form of clitoral stimulation)

Seriously? I'm not trying to come across as an internet Cassanova here, but this has never been my experience. Are most guys really unable to get her there by regular farking?
