However, I have only been reaching orgasm through masturbation since I was a freshman in college. I don’t have long sexual fantasies. Mine are all rooted in people I know, people I can actually touch, want to touch, or have touched. It’s interesting that all of my fantasies are rooted in reality—I don’t usually want my fantasies to remain fantasies. Why do some women fantasize about the impossible and others fantasize about reality? What does this say about each “type” of woman? My fantasies start with an image of a person, a flash of a familiar face, a smell of a certain man, a sound that recalls someone—and from there, my mind works.
I resent my mother for not being there to protect me. My father has never been a part of my life. He could not handle being a father. I have such disgust for him. But at the same time, I feel so sorry for him. Boy, was I sexually active as a teenager. I did it with anybody who would screw me. I never used protection. All I did was tell the guy to pull out before he came. All that resulted in five pregnancies and four abortions. I don’t like to masturbate at all. If a guy does it to me, I love it.
But I began to feel I should control my life and not just let things happen. Most men my age seem so immature and irresponsible. I have become interested in female domination porn, which I don’t think is degrading to women. The women are mostly clothed and the men nude. Since I don’t like to look at women, this is perfect. I also like the feeling of power I get from seeing men submissive to women. The men seem eager to please women, unlike the traditional porn most men look at. I’ve never tried anything I’ve seen on anyone I’ve met but have fantasized about it.
