I am sure I’ll regret posting this entry, but it has been a burning question of mine for some time:
Does anybody really say Come for me in real life?
Lately, I have seen this phrase pop up in sex scenes, where the partner, usually the more experienced or bossy one, says this, and the other magically complies. I mean, obviously they were heading there anyways, but still. I don’t get it. In my world, many things are amenable to verbal requests and commands. Coming is not one of them.
Like Einstein doing his famous thought experiments as he developed his important theories about time and the curvature of space, I have done my own thought experiments on Come for me and in what way such a command could possibly be effective. Maybe I am showing off my sexual naiveté for all the world to see here, but through my own thought experiments, I have determined that if my husband or any pre-husband man I was with said Come for me in bed, it would have the total opposite effect. I would be out of the zone because suddenly it’s supposed to happen at this given time. I am going to excuse hunky Captain Nate from saying it to Aiden in My Fair Captain. I could definitely see it working on a 19 year old boy. Or, I could see it having the intended effect if it was put in an interestingly dirty way. Or, if you’re already past the point of no return, so to speak. But Come for me? And what if then you didn’t? Isn’t there enough pressure on the female orgasm already?
Like Einstein, because you know I am totally like Einstein, I have this theory that the phrase was born in the fictional universe and spreads only there, from character to character without ever interfacing with real life. Like, the Regency rake says it, so suddenly some other author’s domineering werewolf character has to say it. And then the vampire brothers can’t be left out. And suddenly the sexy policeman is saying it. Because it’s the bed command all the cool heroes are using, sort of like Open your eyes, Watch me, or some other sort of command along the lines of See what I’m doing. Which I could see working.
I mean, obviously lots of things in the books I read don’t happen that way in real life, but Come for me, specifically, has me wondering. So please, people, enlighten me. Take the quiz at the left!
