Yeah they kind of are. I mean, by definition any kind of delayed orgasm where you have stopped touching is ‘ruined’. And that definitely happens – actually more with guys than women in my experience, but definitely with both.
It can be longer than five seconds actually, with guys it can be anything from five to 20, but with women, sometimes it can be way longer. You’ve got yourself into this zone of arousal and as long as you don’t do anything to mess with it your body is just teetering on the edge, and you might not even realise it.
I’ve had women cum, from putting their jeans on! A minute or two after edging! Just reaching down, pulling them up, that combination of clenching muscles and something hitting their pussy, boom. suddenly they are dragging them up into a wedgie to try to make it feel better. How delightful.
I’ve seen it happen with panty stuffing too. Quite relaxed after edging, no real idea anything could happen. But she pulled the panties out and not only did she cum, she squirted, completely spontaneously. So great.
My advice though is don’t be mad about it. Just delight in how amazing your body is and consider it a freebie. It’s kinda ruined after all…
