It’s never too late to learn something new, especially when it comes to sex. No, we’re not talking about sex tips. We’re talking about sex facts.
Sure, we could teach you a trick or two to make you a better lover. But why not do something that will really make you appear more attractive and expand your knowledge?
Whether it’s winning your local bar’s trivia night or breaking the ice on the first date, here are some sexy facts that might just come in handy when you least expect them.
1. There's more than one kind of female orgasm
You might think this is common knowledge, but you’d be surprised how many people — men and women — are unaware.
To get you up to speed, there’s the clitoral orgasm and the vaginal (penetrative) orgasm. Some experts surmise that there are as many as 11 different types of female orgasm!
Some women can only climax from one form and not the other, while others experience a mixture of both.
2. Sperm and Semen are totally different things
While most people use these two words interchangeably, they actually refer to two entirely separate things.
Sperm are the actual cells that create babies, while semen is the fluid that transports them.
3. Allergic reactions can be sexually transmitted
Nut allergies are serious business, but that doesn’t mean you’re safe just by avoiding kissing after snacking on peanut M&M’s.
People allergic to Brazil nuts can experience an allergic reaction if they have sex with someone who’s recently eaten them. This was first reported when a 20-year-old woman in the UK had a reaction after sex with her boyfriend.
4. You can get pregnant on your period
Thought that time of the month was a good reason to ditch the protection? Think again!
A woman’s fertility fluctuates throughout the course of the month, with menstruation being the least fertile
window possible. As in, almost impossible to conceive. But this doesn’t mean it actually is impossible.
You see, sperm is super resilient and can actually live inside the vagina for up to five days. That means that if a woman has unprotected sex on her period and some sperm manages not to be expelled, it could very well result in a fertilised egg a few days after menstruation is finished.
In other words, always use contraception!
5. The G-Spot can increase a woman's pain tolerance
A study in the 1980s found that vaginal stimulation (specifically, the G-spot) significantly reduced women’s ability to feel pain. Their pain threshold more than doubled during self-stimulation. The same study also showed that the vagus nerve — which connects the vagina and the brain — still worked in women who were paralysed and numb from the waist down.
6. 28% Men have been affected by premature ejaculation at one time or another
Now here’s a not-so-sexy sex fact: premature ejaculation (PE) is more common than you probably think. In 2013, the Journal of Sex & Marital Therapy found that almost 30% of men had been affected by PE.
PE doesn’t just cut the fun short. It can lead to decreased confidence, lack of sexual satisfaction and can even cause relationship problems.
