(NSFW) What are the qualifications determining expertise in sex?

Asked by whatnot (589 points ) July 11th, 2010

I’ve seen some individuals who say they are experts in sex. I wonder what the qualifications are and what is the governing body granting certification in sex expertise? If someone says they are a sex-expert, what specifically does this mean? Does expertise necessarily equate to quality or quantity of sexual activity?

I believe you refer to people’s profiles where they declare their areas of expertise. In many cases, they are not making any claim of professional certification. They most likely mean they feel comfortable and knowledgeable answering questions about sex and perhaps that they consider themselves experienced and excellent lovers. There are professional associations for sex therapists but most Jellies are not making any claims that they are sex-therapists. Even Dr. Ruth Westheimer’s doctorate is in sociology, not in some clinical field!

I think many are “experts” are optimistically over-estimating

Being able to make your mate cum beyond their expectations.

Me and my friends (well.., me mostly) have this saying: “That’s right – take it all.”

A mouse is cruising along in the jungle and he hears this “oooooogh” moaning. He scampers along toward the sound and finds an elephant, in agony. The elephant says “Ooooohhh – please Mr. Mouse take this thorn out of my paw – pahleese – oooohhhhh!” The mouse looks around and says “Sure babycakes, but if I do you gotta’ let me fuck you.” The elephant looks down and at her paw, and says, “Ooooooh, OK, but please hurry! Oooooooooh.” The mouse removes the thorn, to the great relief of the elephant, and runs up her tail as fast as he can and starts to go to town. The elephant, oblivious, walks over and rubs her shoulder against a coconut tree “ahhhh” and a coconut falls and hits her on the head. “Ooooooooooooh”.

The mouse yells out – “That’s right – take it all!”

The mouse is an expert.

There’s an extensive certification process. Fluther is really quite serious about establishing the credentials of its advisers. Did you fill out the form? Take the test? You couldn’t have if you’re asking this question. You better check in with Bendrew. Something has gone badly wrong here. I demand a full investigation!
