Ten things about...

...SEX


1. The typical lovemaking session lasts around 15 minutes: roughly 10 to 12 minutes of foreplay and around 3 to 5 minutes of intercourse.

2. Humans aren't the only horny members of the animal kingdom doing it just for fun. Dolphins and a type of chimpanzee called the bonobo have also been observed engaging in sexual activity when they are not in their natural reproductive cycles.

3. While Viagra has made erectile dysfunction (affecting 10 to 12 percent of men) a household phrase, the opposite problem -- premature ejaculation -- is more common (affecting 24 to 27 percent of men). The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is currently reviewing a drug called dapoxetine as a cure for this problem.

4. Crank up that thermostat... orgasms may be more intense in warmer conditions. The degree of vasocongestion, reddening or darkeing of the skin known as the "sex flush," is both more common in warmer temperatures and an indication of how intense an orgasm may be.

5. If a woman experiences orgasm during sex, she is more likely to become pregnant, since orgasmic spasms in pelvic muscles help move sperm up the vaginal canal to the uterus.

6. Homosexuality is not unique to humans. Many species have been observed engaging in homosexual activity, and in fact male bats have the highest rate of homosexuality of all mammals.

7. On any given day 400,000,000 people around the world -- 1 in 17 of us -- will have sexual intercourse. Broken down further, 4,000 people are having sex at any given time.

8. Sex cures headaches. Endorphins released into our bloodstream when we have sex not only give us pleasure but also act as painkillers. Useful information to whip out the next time your partner uses a headache as a reason to say no.

9. Many elderly can and do have frequent sex. At age 70, 73% of males are still potent, and 30% of women 80 or older have still have sex.

10. 70% of women would rather eat choclate than have sex.

truckdriver_sefl said...

john said...

All I need to know about sex, I learned from Miss Lee Ann.Thanks.

twolf1920 said...

Leeann,

All I ever WANT to know about sex I WISH I could learn from YOU.

hehehe!

Spoke said...

The Kinsey Report...I don't know how "they" got so much written done. If I start thinking about IT or talking about it, I wanna go and do it!
Perhaps they were immune...poor buggers.

NIKEY said...

i can't read your post today. i'm under age .

Rastaman said...

1) Rasta never has a headache.

2) I don't believe #6 ... homosexual activity would involve sex and "many species" and bats in particular were not mentioned in item #2. This is pure propaganda from the Homosexual Lobby.

3) Number 7 also cannot possibly be true ... the number has to be much, much higher.

LOL

Peace and hugs to you Babygirl!

Now, for the three things you may or may not know:

1) The three ages of Vico's historical cycle are: Theocratic (The Age of Gods), Aristocratic (The Age of Heroes), and Democratic (The Age of Men).

2) The three sons of Noah were Shem, Japheth, and Ham. Shem is the eponymous ancestor of the Semites, including the Jews, Arabs, Assyrians, Elamites and Aramaens. Japheth was the ancestor of all the Greek tribes in general. Ham was the grandfather of Nimrod, the builder of the Tower of Babel.

3) The three beasts that confront Dante in Canto 1 of the Inferno are a Leopard, a Lion, and a She-Wolf. Where did Dante get his literary inspiration from when creating the beasts? The Bible! Jeremiah 5:6 And this is why a lion from the forest strikes them down, a desert wolf makes havoc of them,
a leopard lurks around their towns:
whoever goes out is torn to pieces -
because of their countless crimes,
their ever-increasing apostasies.



There you go, Babygirl, three things you may or may not have known ... and in threes, as well! Thanks for stimulating my thought process!

btw, you are So Beautiful!!

Fame said...

I must tell you #8, I love this.. Sex always makes my back feel better!! Now if I could only find a regular partner to help with pain management....

Get list darling! I know most of this, I have a minor in Sexuality Education.. there's something you didn't know!

rob said...

Hi gorgeous!

Because I'm in the southern hemisphere, it works in reverse here - we spend 2 to 3 minutes on the horseplay then 12 seconds on intercourse.

Phats said...

Wow great sex ed lesson! loved it.

hmm three things, you're pretty knowledgeable I think you know everything I know. :)

I could teach you tennis, or how to do a back tuck?

jiggs said...

It's dark in a cave! Of course, bats would accidentally have lots of homosexual sex. It's like in the gym shower when the power goes out.

WDKY said...
