My First Orgasm - Poem by Alison Cassidy

it wasn't
for want
of regular experimenting,
but somehow
I could never achieve
that blissful state that others
told me I'd definitely recognize.

I looked
in books,
but they were anatomical
and talked of labia and uteri
and eggs and swimming sperm
and weren't much use
at all.

I filled my mind
with images erotic
from well-thumbed paragraphs
in Portnoy's Complaint and Lady Chatterley,
but these served only to intensify
the awful realization
that I would never enjoy
the mind-blowing experience they all wrote about.

And it wasn't
that I didn't delight
in the act of making love
and feel intensely erotic sensations
in those places I imagined I should.
It's just that I knew that there was something more.

And then
you came along
and with obstinate patience,
placed your hand in just the right place
and stroked and rubbed and coaxed until
my body felt a new and pleasant sensation
that vaguely mirrored childhood in the bath

and slowly the sensation grew
until I knew
that something irresistable would definitely happen
and found myself without pretense
as my body writhed and squirmed
and screamed
in tantalizing ecstasy.

Thereafter, I did it regularly
After all, practice makes perfect...

    And this gem tucked away on a faraway page......
    Allie's poetry just gets better!
    She never fakes it!

    Nice to have been there!

    Very nice, I'm not quite up to involving my first orgasm yet, but it involved the shower and some experimentation after a number of partnered failures.

    Effective poetry by the way!

    Allie, this is sensational writing - gently erotic and seductive without being graphic - all the elements of good taste. Again, a sensational write.

    I knew all my so-called valiant sexual attempts were in vain; sure all five of them sounded satisfied, but always was aware they were probably faking it. On a missionary position mission, yet unfortunately, the pleasure was all mine. Jerry has since given me pointers in the art of exact finger placement. The Jermeister has that special touch or so it would seem, to find the proper seam of eroticism.

    Pulsing with energy, highly visualisable, demonstrates admirable staying power, and builds to a very interesting climax. Great progression on display here within an all consuming structure. x jim (Report)Reply

    I think your experience mirrors that of many women, Allie, and you've got right to the heart of the matter beautifully! Esther : ] (Report)Reply

    Woo Hoo! ! Touching the words (among other things) that many fear to broach...good for you, Allie! ! More 'real' poetry from you, yet again. I can't think of a more natural act or desire that most humans wish to experience, or, at least seek. An orgasmic 10 from me :)
