Sex – everyone’s favourite topic to discuss and disgust. Here are some fun facts to kickstart your imagination or just to get the girly gossips going.
#1 Semen is good mood booster
According to researchers, it seems semen is known to contain “such mood-altering chemicals as estrone and oxytocin, which elevate mood; cortisol, which promotes affection; serotonin, which acts as an antidepressant; and melatonin, which induces sleep.” Also, a teaspoon of semen contains approximately 5 calories and over 30 different substances including the above.
#2 Heavier men can last longer
Never has being big brings so much joy. Turkish researchers found that there’s a connection between body mass index and male sexual performance. In the yearlong study, it was discovered that heavier men were able to make love for an average of 7.3 minutes while slimmer men only lasted an average of 108 seconds. It seems overweight men had higher levels of the female estradiol hormone which blocks male hormones and delays climax.
#3 Adulterous are the women
Ladies, this is not going to put us in a good light. It seems we are more incline to cheat and commit adultery when we are ovulating. The trigger is because we feel our most feminine during this time of the cycle where our libido is peaked, fertility causes us to strike out and seek the perfect mate. It is also easier for women to achieve orgasm during this period than any other time.
#4 Millions of sex per day
Sex is an activity enjoyed by many, no doubt. But do you know how many exactly? Everyday about 100 million couples around the world have sex. During the course of a woman’s reproductive years, she would have sex more than 3,000 times. During an average man’s lifetime, he would have ejaculated about 17 litres of semen – that’s about half a trillion sperm.
#5 More orgasm = longer lives
Yup, the more orgasm you experience, the longer you’ll live. A doctor from the Wellness Institute at Cleveland Clinic claims that not only will you get to live longer, you may actually feel younger by eight years too. But of course, this is in reference to men. While female orgasms haven’t been studied separately, a research is telling us that women who enjoy sex live longer than those who don’t.
