Penis Envy is one of those phrases coined by um, a man, obviously, specifically, by Mr Freud. I guess I find the male member sometimes stimulating, exciting, arousing or even amusing, but can't say I've ever had a burning desire to have one myself. Why would you want something you have to fiddle around with to get it into a comfortable position in your trousers? And then there's also the problem of having erections at swimming pools when you're a teenager.
But the one thing I am kind of interested in is, what does the male sex drive feel like? How does it feel to be sexually excited as a man? Is it really true that men are always thinking about sex and poised for action? Is the male sex drive like a constant incessant pain, a constant drum beating in your scrotum, desperate for relief? Or does it vary from day to day? Is it only inspired by looking at a particularly beautiful woman, or can it sometimes be any woman, any pair of tits? Does it feel unbearable to desire a woman like mad and not be able to sleep with her? And is there some analogy you can use to compare the experience of being aroused in a way that a woman might understand, like maybe a food analogy? Like maybe, being starved to death, and being tied to a chair with the most perfect, most delicious piece of chocolate on the table in front of me for 3 days…Is that what it's like?
