Coffee Shop Anecdote
A few years back, I had a quiet night to myself and decided to spend it relaxing with a book in a local coffee shop. I had settled onto a corner of a couch with my caramel latte and was comfortably reading away, when a largish group of people came in. The place was already somewhat full, and there was nowhere for them to sit except for my couch. One of the girls politely asked if I minded, which I didn't, so they sat down.

A bald guy ended up sitting next to me, and we struck up a conversation. He was asking me what kind of drink to order. "I want something orgasmicly chocolaty," he told me.

He went on to explain that he had always wondered what the female orgasm was like, and he was striving to find out. He thought if he could find the right combination of chocolate and such, perhaps he could experience one. He'd had some really good taste experiences, but he wasn't sure yet if he'd achieved the elusive orgasm or not.

"Well," I told him, "let me tell you what I tell all the strangers I meet in coffee shops who ask me about orgasms. Once when I was younger, I wondered if I'd experienced an orgasm or not. I mean, I'd read about them, and I'd read descriptions of how it feels and so forth, but I couldn't really tell, you know? The words didn't translate well enough into sensations, and I just wasn't sure if they described something I'd experienced or not. I'd had a lot of fun, and done some things that had made me feel very good, but were they orgasmic? Had I had one?

"Then my friend....then I had one. And I knew, without any doubt, that I'd just experienced one. From then on I knew what they were, what they felt like. So here is what I believe: if you have to ask, it hasn't happened yet."

He thanked me for my advice. He went back to talking with his friends, and I went back to reading my book. Unfortunately, it turned out that the coffee drink he'd selected wasn't chocolaty enough, so I'm afraid he left the shop that night still searching, still wondering.

My orgasms don't feel anything like something on the menu at a coffee shop. Can you imagine....

"Ms. Cynnerth?"
"Yes, Doctor?"
"I'm afraid I have bad news."
"Tell me...I can take it..."
"You're going to have to give up caffeine."

Wow, that would be quite the bummer! Fortunately I don't require coffee for mine, either. *grin*

you know, I have the same problem. not searching for a drink, I mean wondering whether or not I've orgasmed. Of course, I haven't done much (with other people) and I'm fairly sure I haven't. I think I've come close a couple times but then I always get distracted. I think too much ;) Hopefully I will recognize an orgasm when it hits.

Well like I said: I think you'll know when you have one. And I'm sure you'll enjoy it!

Hmmmm, weird conversation. I hope you don't mind me adding you to my friends' list to see if any more deliciously weird stuff pops up again, do you?

Heh heh. Now, that is funny!

I wonder if he ever found that orgasmic drink? And, if he did, in some coffee shop somewhere, I wonder what the people around him thought of his reaction when he tasted it?

That would be funny, too.

Ha! Too true....I didn't really think about that...I guess it'd be a When Harry Met Sally kind of experience!

"I'll have what he's having."

I reckon you were being chatted up. It is actually not to bad a technique I feel. Yes indeed.
