(posting in this journal because it's something I mostly/only see in fandom context.)

So like... what is the deal with phrasing like in this post that talks about what this or that smokin' hot person does "to the ovaries"? I mean, I get the similar jokes about "whoops, now I'm pregnant" because the implication is that you wanted to have sex with them (although I find "I want to have his babies" very weird as an expression of sexual desire; but then I am snipped and would use the word "childfree" for myself, so I digress). But I don't know about any of y'all out there who are similarly equipped, but for me the physical sensation associated with that "mmm, yes please" feeling is centered in the vulva, i.e. the sensation of blood swelling the tissue in the area (similar to a penile erection), not in my ovaries. In fact, since I am not one of those people who can feel themselves ovulate, basically I feel nothing from the ovaries ever unless my gynecologist is doing that thing she does during a pelvic exam (sdjkfadfdsjflsdj*heebie-jeebies*). I understand that those with testicles get a sensation there, but I dunno that this is something that really transfers well based solely on parallel function (production of gametes). Soo... uh?
