Just for my curiosity, here is a question i have always thought i would never know the answer to (short of planting a hidden recorder) but feel sure i should get a good cross-section of frank answers from you great LH forum lot.
When you are having sex (straight or otherwise) and reach the moment of climax just how loud are you?
Remember that answer and then tell me, do you make the same amount of noise when/if you masturbate and are totally on your own?.
Having viewed a few so called 'orgasmic' fingering sessions on the net accompanied by howling screams and legs flying everywhere I'm immediately turned off and see it as probably a fake.
Speaking for myself i am usually very noisy when letting it go inside the OH, however when on my own i offer no more than a whimper and an Ooooh.
I haven't a clue about the OH as she says she just doesn't do masturbation so no help there.
I'm not suggesting that making noises during actual sex is for the benefit of the OH, I think there is probably a comparison with why we roar with laughter over a joke whilst in a crowd, or just try going down the first drop on THE BIG ONE (Blackpool pleasure beach) -on your own- with your hands in the air and screaming it doesn't work!
How is it for you?
