If you’re a non-scientist, you might have once asked yourself, propped against the bedhead after disappointingly quick intercourse, how long does sex “normally” last? A scientist, though, would phrase the same question in an almost comically obscure way: What is the mean intravaginal ejaculation latency time? Well, here's your answer...
To paraphrase award-winning author Garth Marenghi, there are only three hetero sex positions worth doing: doggie, woman on top and "normal". But which one is best?
Medial doctor and sex therapist Zvi Zuckerman (aka the "Sex Doctor") recently explained the scientific, romantic and physical benefits of each position, along with their potential drawbacks. So if you're feeling frisky tonight, here's what to look forward to (and what to look out for!)
Perhaps you've heard that size matters, women are naturally more bisexual than men, or that tantric sex means everlasting orgasms. None of these things is entirely true. Sex has been around forever, but we're just starting to understand it. Today we're debunking 10 of the most common sex myths to set the record straight.
Hand jobs don't get the respect they deserve. They're an activity that many people (especially heterosexual people) haven't done since they were teenagers. But, just like fingering a woman, manually stroking a man can be one of the best ways to give focused stimulation. Here's everything you need to know to give a fantastic hand job.
One of the great things about strap-ons is that anyone can use them. If you have a penis, you can use a strap-on. If you don't have a penis, you can use a strap-on. You can use a strap-on to penetrate a partner of any gender, to subvert stereotypical gender roles or to play with those roles. You can use one for fun, or you can use one to manage erectile or orgasmic challenges. You can use a strap-on for vaginal sex, anal sex, oral sex, manual sex or masturbation.
I'm willing to bet that nine out of 10 people who read this headline will think, "A dude who has trouble orgasming? Yeah, right." Difficulty reaching orgasm is typically thought of as a female problem, but that's an unfair and harmful stereotype. The reality is that male orgasm is not a guarantee.
If you have no problem attaining an erection, but struggle to finish, here's your new game-plan.
For many people electricity and genitalia don’t go hand in hand. It’s not something we often consider when we think of sex or masturbation. While nobody is advocating sticking your parts in a wall socket, it’s something that might be worth exploring in a safe and harmless, but thoroughly enjoyable, way.
Female ejaculation – commonly known as "squirting" – has been a subject of interest right back to ancient times. Back then, however, it wasn’t a puzzle or taboo. The philosopher Aristotle, who was kicking around Ancient Greece more than 300 years BC, matter-of-factly observed that when women ejaculate, they produce far more liquid than men. And the Kama Sutra, the Hindu sexual text written around 200-400 AD, called the product of squirting ‘female semen’. It’s clear that for some of our ancient sisters ejaculation at orgasm was a normal part of sex.
As with so many aspects of women’s sexuality, however, over the last two millennia female ejaculation became a taboo subject. Then in the mid 20th century its existence was even denied by early sexual researchers and was written off as just incontinence (charming!).
Sex isn’t only a pleasurable experience, with some reports claiming the act also has health benefits that can be compared to those of exercise. But can bonking really be considered a form of exercise? Let's find out.
Being touched by a lover is both comforting and arousing. So a particularly great way for partners to share some special bonding time is a massage, the most deliberate and prolonged kind of touching there is. Erotic massage relaxes the body, soothes the mind and boosts mutual sexual happiness, all at the same time – it truly is something special that all lovers should try. We lay out the basics for first-time masseuses.
Nothing is more certain than the fact that men have been happily indulging in masturbation for millions of years: ever since only two legs were needed for walking and our hands got freed up.
And it’s a good thing too. There’s every reason to flog the log, from simple pleasure through to the prostate health outcomes of ejaculation, not to mention sexual benefits such as stamina training. So why settle for your boring ol' hand?
Cock rings are one of the simplest and most popular sex aids around. They work by providing a constricting squeeze to your penis when it’s erect, stopping the blood from flowing back down. This can help your erection to feel harder and last longer than normal, offering all kinds of benefits such as longer sex sessions and more intense orgasms, not to mention boosted confidence and fun for both partners.
