But the men are getting their fair share too — 54% of single men are sexually active, while 68% of married guys are hittin’ it on the regs. Strangely, married women are only at 56%…. Anyway, who’s been brave enough to ask all these old pervs about their sex lives? The University of Gothenburg in Sweden — they’ve surveyed 70-somethings since the ’70s.

Sex Advice: I’m Dating Mr. Not-So-Big

“The guy I’m dating is seriously under-endowed. Is this a total deal-breaker?” — Dick-appointed, via email

Have you had sex already? If you have, then you know the answer better than I do. Just ask yourself this: Was it good?

When women experience orgasms during sex, it usually has nothing to do with how far in a penis goes or how wide. Most women’s orgasms are clitoral, and are achieved when pressure from the man’s pelvic bone rubs against her. The G-spot (which needs to be stimulated in order for a vaginal orgasm to be achieved) doesn’t exist in every woman, but those who do have it can reach it with their finger. I don’t know when the last time you measured your finger was (I measure mine all the time), but it’s not that long. Get my drift?

Microbicides: Condoms May Become A Thing Of The Past

While sticking a bunch of microbicides up your hoo-ha may seem like a bad idea, turns out it may save your vaj from the likes of HIV and other STD’s.

Nowadays, women must rely on making sure their male sexual partners use condoms, but the hope is that this type of safeguard will help ladies take matters into their own hands. The study in the U.S. is based on the larger 12-month trial of microbicides involving 10,000 people currently underway in South Africa, Tanzania, Rwanda and Belgium. Fingers crossed we girls can get some protection! [Newswise]

Sex Advice: My Girlfriend Has Vaginismus

“My girlfriend has Vaginismus. We have a great relationship and we hook up orally and with hands a good amount. Unfortunately, because of her condition, we can’t have sex because it is really painful for her. Obviously I am never going to push it on her because it is WAY harder for her than it is for me. But I’m still a guy and I can’t help wanting to do it. Fortunately, she’s in physical therapy for it now. My question is, how likely is it that she will get better, at least to the point of being able to have sex comfortably?” — Concerned Boyfriend, via email

If you ever want to imagine what Vaginismus is like, have a friend pretend to poke you in the eye. Know what happens? Your eye suddenly closes as the object gets closer. In the case of your girlfriend, your penis is the “poker”, and her vagina is the “eye.” Sooo not fun.

FDA Guards Gardasil’s Market Share

So far in the states, Gardasil has been the only FDA approved vaccine for the double-whammy strain of HPV that causes cervical cancer. However, in Europe Cervarix has been kicking HPV’s butt and protecting women across the continent.

What’s a girl gotta do to get some options? [Wall Street Journal]

Poll: Is Technology A Part Of Your Sex Life?

A study conducted by author Joan Sauers for her new book, Sex Lives of Australian Women, found that 20 percent of Australian women have admitted to having a sexual encounter in an internet chatroom. “As a society, we increasingly rely on technology to get the job done, whatever the job is,” she writes in the book. Along with internet sex, women are also into text and webcam sex. About 70 percent of women in their 20s had engaged in sexual text message exchanges, and 22 percent had been filmed while having sex. But most weren’t too happy with the videos and were less than satisfied with their screen presence. “It was fine, but to tell you the truth … watching it again was hilarious … not erotic … my arse was NOT ever meant to be on a tape,” said one 33 year old. Now, how have you incorporated technology into your sex life? [Sify] Keep reading »
