Since my last compendium of absolutely ridiculous sex articles, I've been saving up a new set.The stories have been coming with some regularity, and I've quite a number of them begging for another romp through the weeds. Remember, some of this crap may even be true...
Hazel Jones, a 27 year old woman from High Wycomb in the UK has, for some inexplicable reason (could it be money, or is she just an attention whore?), gone public with her condition, uterus didelphus, a divided uterus, which in her case resulted in a divided vagina as well, a condition which is surprisingly common, about 1 in 3,000 women. Heather went on TV to talk about it, and even had a video made featuring the feature in question (don't get that excited, it's pretty clinical and not at all pretty) but apparently refused a million dollar offer to appear in porn.
'If women want to have a look, I'm quite happy to show them, it's not something I'm embarrassed by.'
Hazel went to the doctor after her long-term boyfriend told her she was 'different' in the genital area.
'I have a great sex life,' she said.
The "male warrior" instinct means that men are programmed to be aggressive towards anyone they view as an outsider, a study claims. In evolutionary terms an instinct for violence against others helped early men improve their status and gain more access to mates, but in modern terms this can translate into large-scale wars.Yeah, yeah, blame us. We can take it. But if women would just keep us satisfied, the world would be a lot more peaceful, then.
In contrast women are naturally equipped with a "tend and befriend" attitude which means they seek to resolve conflicts peacefully in order to protect their children, researchers said.
The study, published in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B, is a review of evolutionary evidence for the so-called "male warrior hypothesis".
It claims that in every culture throughout history, men have been more likely than women to use violence when confronted by people they saw as outsiders.
After 60 years Science still can't find the G-spot.
Many women swear they have one, but a new review of 60 years of sex research shows science still can't definitively find the G-spot.I don't feel so bad then...
Researchers have used surveys, imaging scans and biopsies of women, all trying to locate and define the presumably orgasmic area on the vaginal wall known as the G-spot. Based on a review of 96 published studies, an Israeli and American research team came to one conclusion.
"Without a doubt, a discreet anatomic entity called the G-spot does not exist," said Dr. Amichai Kilchevsky, a urology resident at Yale-New Haven Hospital in Connecticut, and lead author of the review, published Jan. 12 in the Journal of Sexual Medicine. Kilchevsky conceded the work is not "1,000 percent conclusive," allowing that other scientists could one day find something his team missed. But they would need new technology to do it, he said.
Women become more stupid in groups:
Researchers conducted a series of tests on groups of men and women with similar high IQ ratings. In the first set of tasks, the subjects were given basic puzzles to solve.Like this wasn't obvious. But it's a feature, not a bug.
Then they were each told how well the others in the group had performed before being given another series of similar tests.
Once they knew the others were good at the tasks, the performance and IQ of both sexes dropped, but women's more significantly.
Scans showed the part of the brain dealing with emotion increased in activity while that associated with problem solving decreased.
Men Spend the Big Bucks When Women Are Scarce
Across the animal kingdom, males are competitive when females are scarce. Now a study with people has examined how the number of women affects men’s attitudes about a marker for competitive fitness: Money. Basically, the fewer the women, the more the men threw their money around. The research is in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.Active sex life keeps you young, slim
Study subjects read prepared articles that described their local population as being predominantly male or being half male-half female. Then they were asked how much money they’d save and how much they’d spend using credit cards each month. When the men believed there were fewer women, they predicted they’d save 42 percent less money and were willing to spend 84 percent more on credit cards than when the sexes were at equal numbers.
Some really cheesy article about why sex is good for men, as if we really needed an rationale. But here's ten excuses you can try in a pinch:
It keeps your heart pumping:
Well, maybe for a short while
It prevents erectile dysfunction:
Or do you have more sex if you don't have ED?
It helps to relieve stress:
I've heard that...
It burns calories:
Like any 7 minute workout
It helps release happy hormones:
Better than sad hormones I guess
It will keep you fit and tone
It seems to work for the guy on the right
It stops colds from developing:
Just try to have sex when you're nose is running.
It will make you look younger:
Or maybe you'll just think so - who cares?
It makes you live longer:
Promise? Maybe she doesn't want me to!
Well, that's enough for now. One thing we can be sure of is that there will be plenty more stupid sex articles in the future...
