The lecture for Week 4 begins with the idea of heat cycles, applied to humans. No, we don’t typically think of human women “going into heat,” but we, as humans, are mammals. We, as female humans, are affected by seasons, by menstrual cycles, by the cycles of other female humans around us, and can “go into heat” at will. THAT is what sets us apart. We can become turned on and decide to have sex wherever, whenever, without the necessity of seasons or menstrual cycles coinciding with that decision.
There are several symptoms of a woman “being in heat.” According to The Welcomed Consensus, they’re quite varied – everything from dilated pupils, to PMS, to spring cleaning. The symptoms are signs of tumescence – a buildup of tension in the body. And in answer to the age-old question of WHAT DO WOMEN WANT??? The Welcomed Consensus claims that women simply want to be de-tumesced. Women want a release of tension. In order to completely release all tension from a woman’s body, they recommend an orgasm every four hours. (Every four hours for how long of a period of time? For a day, a week, an entire life? That’s not specified.) But, apparently, in order to keep a woman happy, all she needs is to be de-tumesced. If you can provide your woman of choice with an orgasm every four hours, perhaps she will be yours!
In terms of being the woman in tumescence, one does not simply have to play the victim of tumescence. Claim it! Take charge of it! Let it work for you! If tumescence is stored energy, use the energy to your advantage. Women often crave sexual gratification in the week prior to beginning their period, and in this week, tumescence is high. “PMS can be overcome via orgasm. The excess energy within the body during the week before menstruation can be shifted into pleasure, rather than pain.” An orgasm will relieve cramps. Who wouldn’t rather have an orgasm over menstrual cramps? Try it!
While all of this “what a woman really wants is to be de-tumesced” stuff sounds good in theory, I have to wonder if the concept is just like every other “what a woman really wants” theories. Isn’t every woman different? I mean, seriously…I like the idea of being de-tumesced and all, but maybe what I really want is cupcakes! 😉
