The Secrets of Women and Motorcycles

Since the beginning of time (I assume) men have a hard time understanding the way women think, particularly when it came to more ‘intimate’ matters.

But I read something recently which finally put things into terms that I could understand and allowed me a peek into the strange world of women’s desires, and here it is…

Men view sex as a goal – a destination to be reached as quickly as possible and by the shortest route.  Women, however, see sex as a journey – a set of experiences to be savored along the way.  The destination is nice, but it is the journey that counts.

As an avid motorcyclist this was something I could totally relate to.  Motorcycling is all about the journey.  The destination (be it great ribs or a classic bike show) is, more often than not, just an excuse to get out and ride.

The same split can be seen in other activities too – take shopping as an example.  Women will happily spend hours at the mall, completely immersing themselves in the entire retail experience.  Men, on the other hand, “hunt shoes” – grabbing the first pair that fit the need, and heading home triumphant.

Sadly the introduction of children often makes it difficult to spend sufficient time on the journey – which no-doubt explains why many mothers find themselves in a state of low libido, and their husbands in a state of frustration.

But the first step to solving a problem is knowing what the problem is.  Now that I finally get it I will be trying harder to focus on the journey, and I would suggest that you do the same too.

Enjoy the journey!

  1. You’ve found it! The journey is what life is all about… no matter where it is that you’re going. Great post!

    • Thanks Jeanna. I see that your site takes that to heart! 🙂
      Loved the story of the hang-gliding (I’ve always wanted to try that too) and you have some great pictures. I might need to borrow some of those for a future blog post 🙂

  2. True the journey is a big part of intimacy but this girl does find a quickie fun every now and then–sex and having time to do your nails can be a perfect combination.

  3. Ahhhh,yes. I’m sending my husband a link to this post! Bravo!
