Comic #2250

Where does your pillow talk fit in that chart?

I'm definitely an empirical absolutist. I quantify the quality of sexual pleasure compared to other sex acts using an equation with a set number of variables:

t = time (total time of sexual intercourse)
f = foreplay desire (how intense was the desire to have sex with a 1 to 10 scale)
i = intensity of orgasm (same 1 to 10 scale used to measure pain but with very awkward faces)
w = work (how hard did I have to work on a 1 to 10 scale)
d = total number of diverse sexual acts performed (doggy style, reverse cowgirl, french connection, etc. on a 1 to 10 scale on number of attacks. Anything greater than 10 is considered still to be a 10)
c = intensity of concentration on the sex (Did you have to think about Margaret Thatcher playing baseball in cold rain to maintain performance?) on a 1 to 10 scale
s = shame (more shame being a 10, less shame being a 1)
n = number of partners (1 to 10, where 1 is just you)
a = attractiveness of sum of partners

sexual pleasure = ((i + f - w + d + c - s + n + a) * t) / 100

So the values for my last session went as follows):
t = 7 minutes
f = 6
i = 6
w = 7
d = 3
c = 6
s = 8
n = 2
a = 7

So..

((6 + 6 - 7 + 3 + 6 - 8 + 2 + 7) * 7) / 100
(15 * 7) / 100
105 / 100
1.05

With a normal range of 0.99 to 1.21 (t-score ), I'm 95% confident that my sexual pleasure was within the normal range.

"Hey baby, that was average. Ohhhh yeaahhhh."

Don't encourage him! That's exactly what he wants you to say.
Police said they spent some time working out if they could charge the man with being armed with a weapon, as technically he was armed with part of a fish.

If you have the presence of mind to go through all that afterwards, you're doing it wrong.
Plus, ten minutes as the maximum measurable time achievement? Really?

ha ha. I figured it is something you can do in your head on the fly, and no need to calculate the test statistic. I would gage her values, but I thought that would be too nerdy, even though it would help figure if my performance was improving over time. It would have been more nerdy to use the equation if the number of partners were 1. How pleasurable sex is, I believe, is hard to figure out without some kind of standards of measure.

I was thinking on a scale, but yeah, let's make it any amount.

This is the kind of person who says "bell curve" when they really mean "number".

I say that sex is five, and uber sex is ten on my scale, whereas masturbation is one. Therefore uber sex is both twice sex and ten times masturbation.
My scale is legitimate and elite.

SEX IS FOR FIFTEEN YEAR OLDS NOBODY IS IMMATURE TO DO THAT ANYMORE GOSH

The young are taking over sex as an activity, soon it will be the social equivalent of spending all your time taking "selfies" for myspace

I got 5.72, does that mean my sex is >5x better than yours? This seems to not take into account that sex that takes a long time != better.

I have a stopwatch and I time every sexual act. It's one of those loud ticktickticktickticktick stopwatches that beeps twice after every minute. Suffice to say, four beeps is more than enough Felstaffian action for the lucky lady, so I aim for this exact figure every time.

Yes, Yes it does. I figured sex as a unit of time for measuring something tangible like prostitution since there is usually a charge by time (act depending). The longer your pleasure, the greater it is, and therefore more valuable an investment.

I can assure Mr. Weiner that the number of people that love jokes about aesthetic relativism is <1 at the very least. This one made my day.

The number of people who like those jokes is less than one at the very least. I think that is true about anything.
