10 SEXY FACTS ABOUT SEX

Sex, as opposed to the kinder and gentler sounding ‘love making’ is a necessary part of the continuation of a species. If the female and males of a species do not share their DNA with each other, that species will die out. End of story. Pretty basic huh?
Sex involving sperm, consensual or not, is designed to make babies. Sex is so fundamental that it appears as a physiological basic in Maslow’s ‘Hierarchy of needs’ pyramid. But humans are funny animals, and for something so rudimentary, we sure have built a lot of rules around it.
Nature, of course, is greater than any artificial guidelines the human race decides to impose upon it. Nature invented sex, and nature understands exactly what it is doing at all times, no matter how we decide we want to contain it.
This applies to sex as well as things like climate and the Eurovision Contest.
Here are 10 interesting and true facts about sex and sexual behaviours amongst animals that may float your boat.
1.
There is often a lot of talk about sperm containing high levels of protein. Gents, this is just not true. In order to get the same amount of protein as one egg white, you would have to produce half a cup of semen in one shot. However, there is 3% of the RDA of zinc in one throw of your baby batter, and, just like a diet coke, only one calorie.

2.
Praying Mantis males tend to avoid sex for a bit when they are young because the female praying mantis will eat his head off during and after copulation. Spiders, namely the black widow, will do the same, but Dragonfly sex is so rough on the females, that a female dragonfly will often fake her own death in order to avoid nooky. When the male is in the area, she lays down and pretends she has taken the big sleep, he comes over, decides doing a corpse is not his thing and flies away, at which time she gets up and goes on with her day.

3.
In Ancient Egypt, women placed a mixture of honey, wax and crocodile dung inside their vaginas to act as a contraceptive. Oddly enough, it wasn’t so much of a contraceptive that it kept Egyptian men away. They still went for it, but modern science has discovered that the alkaline nature of crocodile poop works as a mild spermicide. Those clever Egyptian women.

4.
A 2012 Turkish study found that men who were overweight lasted longer – up to 3 times longer- than their skinnier male counterparts. It could be linked to poor circulation, or maybe some other bulking agent, but hey, whatever works. Have another piece of pie gents !!

5.
In Europe, a study discovered that women wearing socks during sexy times increased the likelihood of her having an orgasm from 50% to 80%. In a study done by myself and friends of mine, men wearing socks and sandals never get to discover how hard or many times a woman will climax.

6.
Most condoms are not vegan due to a milk protein added to the latex, however there are companies now producing vegan condoms for people who strenuously object to putting meat into their mouths….

7.
Oral sex was officially illegal until 1969 in Canada. There is no official word as to whether or not 69 is legal there.

8.
Ingesting caffeine, ie: your early morning java, will caffeinate your sperm. For those of us who need a boost to get us through the day, remember, there is more than one way to get that buzz.

9.
A study in America discovered that the anti-depressant compounds of serotonin and endorphins are absorbed via the vagina from semen. Men have these things in their sperm, and women can take them in after a….deposit….of course, you should always play safe, but if you are with a trusted partner, go for it. To be honest, a bit of regular happy jiggy-business keeps EVERYONE happy. If you don’t have a sperm supplier, don’t worry. Orgasms of any sort are good for women’s mental health.

10 .
And finally, one for the girls and boys to consider, the average vagina is 3 to 4 inches long, but can expand by 200 percentage when aroused. So, no, size really doesn’t matter, women are flexible that way, and whatever you’ve got, we can deal with it. Note that the word aroused is in there. No matter who is tickling your fancy ladies, make sure to make time for the pre-show, as well as the main event.

In the immortal words of the Rolling Stones, you can’t always get what you want, but now with a bit more knowledge under your belt- so to speak- if you try sometimes, you just might find, you get what you need.
