Emma,

The whole idea of satire is to show we’re not nearly as complicated as we think we are. When something can be made funny, obviously the “funny” is there whether we realize it or not. That’s not to say I’m making light of sex or relationships. Obviously, a great amount frustration and possibly angst surround sex if experiences of the past have made it that way. Chloe Thurlow simply made the point that, for some women, squirting is fun. In fact, it can be quite liberating. If simple orgasms represent an “enormous task,” then it’s time to look at it another way. As any satirist will tell you, learn to laugh first. There’s very little in this world that can’t be turned into humour and, that said, it’s hard to see “enormous tasks” if they’re really quite simple. The more you laugh, the more therapeutic it becomes and, believe it or not, the more sex is enjoyable. Personally, I think all squirters are satirists deep down. Anyway, this asshole forgives you (of course, if I hadn’t been called an asshole at times in my life, I might have been quite hurt).
