1. Women and Men Benefit from Kegel Exercise


You've probably already heard about how important it is to do Kegel exercises much more often than you would expect. (But - just for every fireman - these are exercises in which women squeeze the pelvic floor muscles - those that can stop the flow of pee and help strengthen your, hmm, lower grip - thanks to which these muscles tone, better control urination and promote more pronounced orgasms).

However, it must be said that men also need to do these exercises. A recent study focused on men suffering from premature ejaculation. All but five young people showed better results a few months after doing pelvic floor exercises. In their version of the exercise, men squeeze the perineal muscles (those that are between the genitals and the anus).

2. Smokers are worse off

Smoking can lead to erectile weakness. According to studies, even occasional smoking of nonsmoking men and women led to impaired genital reactions. Another interesting study showed that male smokers who quit this habit experience longer and stronger erections. Well, really.

3. Your doctor may not screen you for all sexually transmitted infections.

Just seeing your doctor regularly every year does not mean that you are tested for all genital infections that you might get infected, even if you ask to be tested for every possible test. Screening guidelines may differ from one medical institution to another, so you may not have been tested for herpes, HPV, or syphilis at your last visit, unless you had their symptoms or insisted on testing them specifically.

Testing recommendations also differ based on your age and risk factors, but usually testing is needed after every episode of unprotected sex if you have a new sex partner, if you have multiple partners, or if you think you were likely to getting a sexually transmitted infection, as follows from the recommendations of the American Association for Sexual Health (AASZ). When you visit your doctor, ask to be tested for major infections: chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, HIV, herpes and trichomoniasis (yes, this is also a type of sexually transmitted infection, and if you have never heard of it, here you can To learn more).

Your doctor will likely ask about your symptoms and your sex history. Be honest. It is important to tell your doctor if your condom broke in the last month or if you have partners with whom you have non-penetrative sex. Once the doctor receives complete information, he will be able to tell you that you do not need any of the above tests. It is wonderful! But you don't know until you ask, and unfortunately most people don't even ask. For more information, see the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines for testing for sexually transmitted infections.

4. Sex is not so good if you get drunk.

Five glasses of gin and tonic won't do your genitals good either. As a result of a lot of research, it has been proven that alcohol can lead to impaired sexual functions and reactions.Anyone who knows what happens to the penis after a few drinks of whiskey can attest to the negative effects of drinking in large quantities on erections. The point is, alcohol suppresses arousal, and when you are having sex, you don't need anything to dull your senses.

5. Sex is incredibly good for your health.

Think of it as a naked universal therapy. Well, something like that. Research shows that sex can lower blood pressure, reduce the intensity of migraines, and strengthen your immune system. In general, one continuous benefit.

6. Sex burns three to four calories per minute

Men and women burn, on average, 4.2 and 3.1 calories per minute (respectively) during sex, according to a study recently published in PLOS One. The authors also compared this energy expenditure with exercise itself and found that having sex is about two-thirds of the level of intensity compared to exercise. This, folks, is called multitasking.

7. Orgasms have interesting effects on your brain.

In these fleeting seconds of bliss, a lot of everything happens in your head. “The brain regions associated with pleasure are activated,” Debby Herbenick, a senior researcher at Indiana State University and author of Korgasm, told our publication. "It also blocks the part of the brain that is responsible for fear." In the course of recent studies, it was also studied which parts of the brain are activated by different types of stimulation (clitoral, genital, nipple, etc.). They found that stimulating the nipples and genitals activates the same areas of the brain - in both men and women, Herbenick says. So don't overlook the nipples.

8. Orgasm is feigned by everyone

If you thought that the absolute power in this area belongs to women, then you were wrong. A recent poll by Time Out New York magazine found that 30% of the city's men faked orgasms. And, obviously, this is the real state of affairs. It even became the basis for a recently published book, Why Men Fake Orgasm: The Unexpected Truth About Men and Sex, by Abraham Morgentaler, M.D.

According to Herbenick, a recent study confirms that both men and women simulate orgasm: “Our data suggests that for any sexual act without orgasm, 6% of men who do not have an orgasm and 19% of women who do not have one simulate it. ".

9. Some people fake orgasm for incredibly touching reasons.

Researchers recently surveyed 481 women who identify as heterosexual about what they fake orgasm and why. The most common answers were to protect the feelings of a partner or increase their own arousal (well, just a self-fulfilling prophecy about orgasm).

10. However, many people fake an orgasm because of insecurity or to see it through to the end, to be honest.

The other two most common reasons for females to fake orgasm are related to their insecurities or complexes, or simply because they just wanted sex to end. Checkmate.

11. It is perfectly normal not to have an orgasm with every sex, and this must be accepted as a fact.

There is research on this topic: not everyone can have an orgasm with every sex. “Typically, about two-thirds of women had an orgasm during their last sex,” says Herbenick, while about 91% of men have had an orgasm. So, if you are realistic about the state of affairs, you will not score a goal every time you have sex. So just get over it.

12. Variety and open interaction with your partner can increase your chances of getting an orgasm.

Nothing can be guaranteed when it comes to orgasms, but scientists have gone to great lengths to determine what helps us experience them. For example, when combining different types of sex (such as oral, anal, sexual play with toys, etc.) with penetrative sex, both men and women have an easier time orgasm, according to a study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine).

Another study suggested that being in love with or being emotionally close to your partner can increase the likelihood of orgasm, Herbenick says, probably due to the fact that it helps you relax and release complexes.

“There is a study of heterosexual couples who could talk about sex in a very meaningful way,” says Herbenik. In their relationship, extreme concreteness - especially with regard to clitoral stimulation (whether they liked it, which one, the speed / intensity that suited them, etc.) - was associated with greater pleasure. In general, science says that by doing everything you can to slow it down without getting distracted and openly talking about what you don't like, you can make the path to orgasm easier.

13. Using lubricants can help you have an orgasm.

This applies to almost everyone, regardless of your gender and the gender of your partner. A study by Indiana University's Center for the Advancement of Sexual Health found that more than two-thirds of American men and nearly the same number of women used lubricants, and almost half of the people who reported using them said they helped them experience orgasms. Guys, it's worth a try!

14. Exercise Can Promote Arousal

Research shows that moderate exercise increases sexual arousal in women and even increases libido in women taking antidepressants. Not to mention, exercise stimulates your endurance, responsiveness, strength, and self-confidence. They stimulate blood circulation and increase testosterone levels in both men and women. So if you were suddenly thinking of skimping on a workout today, maybe it's still not worth it?

15. Some people may orgasm simply by exercising.

"Korgasms" are real, and they represent orgasms experienced as a result of abdominal exercises. According to Herbenick, who has been studying non-genital orgasms of this kind for several years now, about 10% of men and women admitted that they experience arousal to orgasm during exercise. In men, this usually occurs when doing exercises on a climbing wall or while pulling up, while women admit that they experience these sensations when squatting and during yoga. “It has to do with stress on your key abdominal muscles,” says Herbenick.

16. Oral sex can make your penis bigger

A recent study published in the Journal of Sexual Health looked at average penis size by asking men about their erections - and how they occur. It turned out that men who had oral sex before the measurement reported greater results. Of course, these results are extremely correlative (maybe guys who are not deprived of nature are simply more inclined to ask for oral sex for the sake of experiment), but this knowledge, of course, will not be superfluous.

17. If you have a vagina and are going to have penetrative sex you should do a lot of different sexual things to get ready.

Remember the study that said that incorporating a variety of processes into sex (manual stimulation, oral and anal sex, etc.) can make the path to orgasm easier? One of the reasons for this is that these processes make you more comfortable if your ultimate goal is penetrative sex (whether it is done with a penis, finger, toy, or something else). “When you do something exciting, the blood flow to your genitals increases,” says Herbenik.“In women, this means more moisture and tension in the vagina,” as it gets bigger to make sex more comfortable.

18. Considering the above, almost all people in heterosexual couples secretly want foreplay to last longer than it actually does.

In a study in which 152 heterosexual couples, both men and women participated, said foreplay (which means any sex that occurs before the penis enters the vagina) should ideally last 18-19 minutes (in reality, according to women, it lasts about 11 minutes, and, according to men, - 13).

19. Many people fail to use contraception correctly despite incredible efforts.

If you are using condoms plus another highly effective contraceptive (eg, pill, IUD, ring, etc.), you are doing well! This means you are protecting against unplanned pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections. A recent study found that about 12% of people did the same the last time they had sex, but unfortunately only 59% of them used all the remedies correctly. Others either took off the condom too early, or put it on only after they started having sex. And since many sexually transmitted infections are transmitted through any contact with another person's skin, making this mistake is tantamount to not using a condom at all. So if you want to double your defense, do it right and keep your elastic on all the time you have sex.

20. Most people stop using condoms without first talking about sexually transmitted infections and related topics. Stop

The data comes from a survey conducted by Trojan, which found that most people between the ages of 18 and 34 gave up condoms after having sex with the same partner for two months. Unfortunately, however, only half of these people actually discussed refusing to use contraception, and less than a quarter of them talked about sexually transmitted infections before. But do not forget: many of these infections do not have any symptoms, and the mere fact that you love this person and trust him does not change the fact that he may have some kind of inheritance from a previous partner. So do your body a favor and always wear a condom until you are in a mutually monogamous relationship and get your test results.

21. Talking after sex is a great thought and worth a try!

Do you know how it happens when you suddenly break into a conversation, like a drunken chatterbox, after sex? In fact, it's totally healthy, especially if you've had an orgasm. In a recent study, people who chatted in bed after orgasm viewed the conversation as more open and frank, plus they saw more benefit from talking to their partners compared to people who did not have an orgasm. You can associate this with oxytocin, a warm and pleasant bonding hormone released during orgasm.

22. More Orgasms Per Month May Reduce Prostate Cancer Risk

Of course, this applies to people who, as you can imagine, have a prostate. According to the study, men who ejaculate 21 or more times a month had a lower risk of prostate cancer than those who had four to seven orgasms a month.

23. And if you're wondering, here's what sex looks like for a heterosexual couple in an MRI machine
