re: Women’s Orgasms Functioning as a Masculinity Achievement for Men [Part 02]

All I can tell you is that women are disinterested in sex with people they don’t feel like having sex with. Other than that, it’s off to the races.

[Continued from Part 01]

Sexual scripts are internalized cultural guidelines that influence how people interpret, understand, and behave in sexual contexts.

They are notably gendered: Men are expected to express masculinity through sexual assertiveness, control, high sexual desire, and a high number of sexual partners, while women are expected to display femininity through sexual restraint and limitations on sexual access (Gagnon & Simon, 1973; Weiderman, 2005).

Typically, sexual scripts have ignored the role of women’s pleasure, as women are portrayed as uninterested in sex (Wiederman, 2005).
