Do We Stepford Wives Fake It? (The Stepford Male Climax Right)

Monday, November 8th, 2010

First off, you should know that the Stepford Organization is in no way a power, role-play group (we don’t even really know what that really means!) We do not believe in role-playing: we believe in living and promoting a conservative, traditional marriage where the man is the head of the household. I have been told the "bdsm" culture consists of many rules, which is not something we do around here. We can’t stress it enough: we are just a group of wives discussing ideas and advice to make our traditional marriages a success. We look at religious guides and old fashioned advice books for inspiration. Once in a while we come up with a clever idea of our own. Here is our favorite:

My sister Carolyn once had a debate with someone over the way we conducted ourselves around our husbands. That person mentioned Carole Pateman’s "Sexual Contract," a feminist analysis of the patriarchal implications of Rousseau’s Social Contract. Pateman talks about the "male sex right" over women, meaning that in the patriarchal configuration, men had broad access to women because of the implicit dominance in the nature of the contract. Well, Carolyn went to school and majored in Women’s Studies Douglass College, so she was able to hold her own. When she told us this story, we put our heads together and tried to come up with a deluxe version of the "male sex right." We thought, if we could serve and please our husbands by giving them unrestricted access to our bodies (which we already do), how do we "supersize" the male sex right? Voila! Blair and Connie almost said it together. "Let’s give them unlimited access to our physical gratification!" And so our very own Stepford Male Climax Right.

Stepford Male Climax Right – The husband has full control over his wife’s access to sexual climax during, before, or after sexual activities together or alone. The wife must ask her husband when she is ready to climax. The husband has the right to refuse, at which point, his wife will acquiesce, and continue the task of bringing him to his peak. This agreement puts the authority of doling out physical gratification solely in the husband’s hands, permitting him to regulate her access to sexual pleasure. An additional benefit is that the wife will eventually develop a subconscious association between sexual pleasure and her husband’s voice, responding – not unlike pets – only to their master’s voice.

Now we have done this for years and our husbands seem to enjoy the high level of decision maker. We secretly think they just want all our attention focused on pleasing them when in bed. We also feel that expecting them to please us would be considered “work.” And Stepford men simply do not work when they are being pleasured.  To be fair, they say yes most of the time, even if it’s in the form of "afterwards."  That simply means after we bring them to climax, and clean them up (we find a warm clean towel, a big kiss and a hearty "thank you" is a favorite among the guys), and tuck them into bed, we’d retire to the bathroom and quickly (and quietly, so as not to disturb them) finish our part of the "contract."

If they want us to peak during the act, then whether we are able to or not, we’ll still manage a spectacular climax just to reinforce their manhood and masculine pride (shhhh! ladies). Then if we need to, after cleaning him, we’ll again head for the bathroom and make short work of it.

Of course, there have been times when a need arises when we’re alone.  According to the agreement, we would still call and ask them if it’s ok that "their little girl gets to have candy."  The more mischievous ones will deny the request for a few days, which often leads to intrepid bouts of begging from the wife until they relent.

I know some of the more worldly readers of our website have claimed this is a variation of female circumcision to limit female physical gratification.  That’s not true.  The Stepford Organization does not support or believe in any physical or genital mutilation.  We have our ears pierced (once only!) and tattoos of any sort are frowned upon.  The Stepford Male Climax Right is a harmless way for us to entertain our men and remind them that they’ll always be in the pilot’s seat.
