I haven't read the book or anything, but is it possible that orgasm avoidance is far more applicable to men? It seems like a lot of what I see on the science has to do with the affects of the male orgasm on the male brain, e.g., the experiments on male monkeys. Does the female orgasm adversely impact the female brain, or is just more satisfying to not set the "goal" or have the "pressure" of the woman climaxing? I have a hard time thinking that an orgasm is going to affect most women's nurturing instinct. It seems like for men, the post-orgasm brain is not very good, and if the couple puts too much pressure on the woman having an orgasm, that can hurt intimacy---or cause the man to do things that will result in him climaxing (e.g. pumping). If a woman mb's in private, would that have any bad impact on the relationship at all? It doesn't seem that a female orgasm is linked to reproduction, what could the adverse affect be, from a chemical standpoint?
For men who have successfully practiced this, how long/frequent have you gone without a climax? Is a woman's experience different? What changes do you notice in your partner?
