How is sex a great lie detector?

by Alian de Botton

Involuntary physiological reactions such as the wetness of a vagina and the stiffness of a penis are emotionally so satisfying (which means, simultaneously, so erotic) because they signal a kind of approval that lies utterly beyond rational manipulation. Erections and lubrication simply cannot be effected by willpower and are therefore particularly true and honest indices of interest. In a world in which fake enthusiasms are rife, in which it is often hard to tell whether people really like us or whether they are being kind to us merely out of a sense of duty, the wet vagina and the stiff penis function as unambiguous agents of sincerity.

A kiss is pleasurable because of the sensory receptivity of our lips, but a good deal of our excitement has nothing to do with the physical dimension of the act: It stems from the simple realization that someone else likes us quite a lot.

  1. Bravo, Bravo, Bravo, well said. SEX the culmination of the PENIS. and the VAGINA, bring pure joy to one's senses Of course spanking your partner on the bare bottom, just adds momentum to these heights of glory.

    That's a great definition for what I call a love boner. That's an erection I get when I am simply swimming in the depth and type of love I have for my wife.

    Great post!

  3. Perhaps Alian de Botton has never met a teenaged boy. At a certain time in his life, the typical teenaged boy can't get it DOWN and to call a stiff penis "an unambiguous agent of sincerity" seems a bit of an exaggeration. Perhaps more of an unambiguous agent of embarrassment might be more accurate.

  4. I will admit that sincerity is not a accurate description for teen-aged boys boners. But, this is an adult site. Wish I could get some of those boners again. I don't recall being embarrassed about them. Maybe I was.

  5. Being a post-pubescent boy in school and getting called to the blackboard to do a math problem in front of the class while you're sporting a "pup tent" because the teacher bent over and you ALMOST saw down her blouse a few moments earlier is one example. Or say, waking up with "morning wood" while sharing a motel room with your mother on a trip. Or being unable to pee in at a friend's house because you've got a diamond cutter because his older sister has on a pair of REALLY tight jeans. Or... Well, you see what I mean, right? ;-)

  6. ..and, for females (but that generally requires manual inspection), turgescence of the clitoris and labia.

    During play spanking, I like to do a little "finger check" and tell my wife that she's aroused, she finds it embarrassing to be told so, and thus strangely exciting. Before my spankings, she giggles if she sees an erection.
