The carousel damages women, but what are the mechanisms? That is what this series is about. Today’s entry is about the first time.
For some women, there is a bit of mythical something about the first time. Undoubtedly this is partially because the pleasant sensation is the most novel that it will ever be. In a sense, it is all downhill from there. Back to the subject; this most intense experience will be remembered forever. How might this memory be useful?
Since it is best for children to have a well functioning husband-wife team raising them, having this intense memory being associated with the husband can strengthen their bonds. This might be especially useful down the line when the wife internally (or externally) starts complaining about her husband, as wives are wont to do.
The first time for most women is the harbinger of bad things to come.
