So is this even really sex? I had a difficult time imagining what these couples do instead of orgasming, even though I sat here for a good long while trying to picture it. Yes, a good long while I sat here, recalling all those memories of near-sex I had in high school and college, when the opinion of my parents and the Pope mattered enough to me to keep my knees tightly together. In the end, I still didn’t quite get a clear idea of what “karezza” could be, but I did get a little hot and bothered.
So is it even sex?
Or is it just hand holding? Or making out?
Or, um, some combination of impotence/homosexuality?
Anyway, isn’t sex without orgasm the sort of sex women have been having all along? This isn’t a new concept for most of us. According to Dr. Phil, 50-75% of women don’t have orgasms during vaginal intercourse, and, according to me, 100% of women don’t. I’ll leave it to you to decide who is a more credible authority on female orgasm. So apparently the crappy sex we’ve been having all along is now supposed to be “more exciting” and “improve every aspect” of life, only instead of “crappy sex” I’m now supposed to call it “karezza.” In this case, nomenclature, as it so often does, makes all the difference.
