10 Surprising Sex Statistics

Remember those pamphlets you got during awkward Sex Ed classes back in junior high that said, “Am I Normal?” and featured a frizzy-haired 13-year-old girl wearing a worried look? Inside the pamphlet were various facts and statistics about puberty and sex that did as much to ease your nerves as a trip to the mall with mom to shop for a new bra. Well, you may be older and wiser now and more comfortable in your skin, but if you’re like me, you’re still a little bit curious what constitutes “normal” between the sheets and under one’s clothes. After the jump, a list from LifeScience.com of ten surprising — and, not so surprising — sex statistics. Keep reading »

Adult Film Legend Marilyn Chambers Dies

Adult film star Marilyn Chambers, who became the face of the “porno chic” movement of the ’70s, has died at 57. The star of one of the most famous adult movies in history, “Behind the Green Door,” Marilyn Ann Briggs started out a far cry from the adult industry. Born into a middle-class family and raised in Providence, Rhode Island, her most famous mainstream modeling gig was as a mother holding a baby on the cover of a box of Ivory Snow soap. In 1972, the San Francisco-based Mitchell brothers approached Chambers about starring in “Green Door.” After the movie’s premiere, Proctor & Gamble dumped her from their Ivory Snow campaign and recalled all product and advertising with her image on it. Over the following years, Chambers continued to return to the adult movie industry and confessed to having struggled with alcohol and drug addictions. Yesterday, she was found dead in her Santa Clarita mobile home by her daughter. The cause of death remains unknown. Keep reading »

The Five Most Important Things You Should Know About: Trichomoniasis

Trichomoniasis is a very common STD among both men and women. Ladies, that hot guy you met at the club last night can spread it to you without ever knowing he has it. You also could unknowingly give it to him. Trichomoniasis can weaken the immune system and make an infected person more susceptible to other STDs, including HIV. Pregnant women who are infected are at risk for delivering early or having a baby with low birth weight. Are you thinking twice about your sexual behavior now?

1. Both men and women can be infected, but because men often experience few to no symptoms, it can seem to only affect women. That is so untrue.

2. Trichomoniasis spreads easily and quickly. Because symptoms of trichomoniasis are often mild to nonexistent, this STD can be spread quickly and easily. It is one of the more common STDs. Women are more likely to have symptoms than men are, but both can be infected.

3. Symptoms often are mild or nonexistent, but women should look for abnormal discharge. If you’re smelling a bit foul down there, that’s also a sign of infection. There may be pain or discomfort during urination or sex. Itching or other genital irritations also may occur. Men don’t usually have symptoms, but some include burning or irritation during urination or an unusual discharge. Keep reading »

Doin’ It With Dr. V: How To Protect Your Hoo-Ha

Hi, I’m Dr. V. I’m not a real doctor, I just play one on the Internet. What I am is a lady, a lady who is a fool for love! And I love nothing more than sex.

Dealbreaker: Really Bad Sex

Peter owning up to Googling me on our first date should have been the first warning sign. Don’t get me wrong: I Google, you Google, we all Google acquaintances. Doing it in private is one thing. Saying it out loud is another.

“Did I tell you who I work for?” I asked. It was technically a blind date, as we’d corresponded only a few times through an online dating service.

“Oh, no, but I think I know,” he said.

“How is that possible?”

“Oh, well … I Googled you.” Point blank. I Googled you. Keep reading »

How I Got The Clap And Other STD Stories: The Unusual Suspect

April is STD Awareness Month, and we asked you to share your STD-related stories so we could learn from your each other’s mistakes. If you have a tale involving sores, Valtrex, or a judgy gynecologist, send an email to tips@thefrisky.com. We will keep your identity anonymous.

I wanted to let you know about my experience with an STD because although I feel uncomfortable telling anyone else about it, I think it’s important for other people to be aware. In November I noticed bumps on the outside of my genital region and thought they were just pimples. They didn’t go away, and when I told my boyfriend he freaked and said he had them too. He blamed me for getting infected, but I hadn’t been with anyone else since we started dating! Keep reading »

Femskins: The Stuff Of Nightmares

I try to keep an open mind when it comes to other peoples’ fetishes, though there are some things I draw the line at (anything involving bodily substances, for one). This particular fetish, however, just scares, rather than disgusts me. It seems that, like Buffalo Bill before them (remember “Silence of the Lambs”) there’s a certain type of guy that gets off on actually wearing the “skins” of latex sex dolls, face and all. Called “masking” or “femskins,” these peeps are apparently prominent enough that they had a convention (no word on why it was canceled). And there’s video! [via Asylum] Keep reading »

Premature Ejaculators: If You Spray It, They Will Still Come Too Quickly.

A new spray called PSD502 has been developed that delays premature ejaculation up to six times longer, according to a study of 300 European men. Minute men and disgruntled women everywhere rejoice.

The men were all clinically diagnosed with premature ejaculation and received either a placebo or the spray which contains 7.5 milligrams of lidocaine and 2.5 mg of prilocaine. Five minutes before intercourse, the men sprayed their wangs and used a stopwatch to record the time from penetration to ejaculation. The treatment group went from 0.6 minutes to 3.8 minutes of sex compared one minute in those who used the placebo spray. Seventy-four-percent of the men in the treatment group could last 2 minutes before ejaculating while only 22 percent could last that long in the placebo group. Keep reading »

Stupid Moves Guys Have Made In The Name Of Sex

In general, sex makes people stupid — why else would anyone get it on with a complete stranger and not bother with protection? But there must be something in the water these days, because lately people are acting especially idiotic about intercourse.

  • A 31-year-old sex-offender in Arizona posed as a 12-year-old to enroll in several schools. Apparently this guy looks really young for his age, because he pulled off this stunt for two years. Neil Havens Rodreick II was sentenced to 70.5 years in prison yesterday. [AP]
  • A commercial helicopter pilot who joined the mile high club while he was the pilot has lost his flying license. David Keith Martz was videotaped in a sex act (with an adult film actress) while flying over San Diego in 2005, and the video hit the internet last year. Martz will be able to reapply for his license next year. [SignOnSanDiego.com]
  • A 15-year New York Police Department veteran who tested positive for cocaine in 2006 isn’t getting his job back even though he swears he didn’t do the drug. Jon Goldin sued last year after a NY state appeals court rejected the NYPD’s use of hair to test cops for illegal drug use. His lawsuit said the positive test was a result of “passive ingestion” from performing oral sex on his then-girlfriend, who later admitted to Goldin that she was a regular cocaine user. We don’t understand how cocaine could go from his girlfriend’s privates to his body unless she had sprinkled a white powder down her drawers. [NY Daily News]

    My freshman year of college was probably the worst time of my life because I was out of my element, didn’t get along with my roommate, and was extremely homesick. I went home just about every weekend. To make matters worse, I experienced my first STD while away at school. Keep reading »
