    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I don't think he has any idea what your body frame is like.

    There are some women who might be able to pull it off (like Gina Carano in "Haywire," or larger-sized women with swimmer-style frames), but most women just can't.

    (If you don't want to answer, it's nbd, I'm just curious about the male viewpoint on that)
    I think any further explanation like that would be post hoc rationalizations. For me it is just something I feel. There must be things that somehow seem intuitively comfortable or uncomfortable to you, they don't even have to be sexual. I'm sure you have something like that, and it's basically equivalent.

    I suppose if I were a female then maybe I wouldn't feel that way. Maybe my feelings would be reversed. The answer to the question remains the same, though, because I have no particular reason to change those feelings.

    Yeah. I understand what you're saying and I can't explain it either, it's all just making up an explanation to describe it.

    In my personal experience, it was the FIRST experience that was empty and even shuddersome, and now with the second everything is not just right but even glorious... like, "yes, that's what it was always supposed to be." But it's more an experiential/intuitive thing, I can't explain the mechanism by how it concretely works if there is one.

    ....To veer slightly into what EJCC said, though, there's definitely a vulnerability to it now, but it's more a welcome one and it's both a strength and vulnerability at once. I mean, both roles in a physical relationship are, in their own way, if we would analyze them -- positions of both strength and vulnerability.

    Not that I wouldn't temporarily give the other, more common, option a spin if given the chance.

    If robot was on the menu though I would have voted that.

    Anyone with sex organs is gland driven and not a being of pure rationality or power.
    Not gonna lie, I was definitely waiting for an INTP to say something like this.

    (And I'm not trying to make (too much) light of it, by pointing it out that way.)

    That makes a lot of sense. Thanks for clarifying.

    I think the feelings would be reversed -- at least, if I were any indication of the general female attitude towards it. Not that I'd have a problem penetrating someone, but more that I'd feel vulnerable all the time, as someone with a penis. Betty White was right when she said that penises are weak and vulnerable while vaginas can really take a beating.

    Indeed. Wise words.

    But sometimes they can be re-attached. Doodoo Wah did a really funny song about Lorena Bobbitt. (Ne tangent)

    I feel I have the mind of a woman; does that count?
