Ever had sex with a guy who just lies there? Well, it’s booooorrrrrrring! Who wants a lazy lover? Well, actually, female spiders do. According to researchers at the University of Aaarhus in Denmark, arachnid females are sorta natural necrophiliacs. Technically, if their male suitor just plays dead, they are twice as likely to get laid as the males who use food as bait. The study, published in the journal New Scientist, showed that among pisaura mirabilis, a spider species native to Europe, lying motionless even made the sex better! Those male spiders not only increased their chances at copulating, they were then able to get it on for longer! Perhaps this is justification enough for why spiders will survive the apocalypse.

Pandas are a bit shy when it comes to sex, and that’s not a good thing since the species is endangered. No sex=no pandas. It’s just that young, inexperienced pandas don’t really know what to do, and all pandas have low sexual desire. To help counter this, handlers at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding are teaching male pandas a dance-like routine that involves hip- and pelvic-strengthening moves to boost the pandas’ stamina. They’re also making young pandas watch more experienced pandas’ love-making in hopes that they’ll pick up some moves. [CNN] Keep reading »
While a lot of celebrities like to walk around with their cooters out, it turns out that just means they’re less evolved females. Big surprise! But seriously, evolution is to blame for all the problems men have reading women’s sexual signals — although it seems like the trade off was worth it. Back in the day, when we were monkeys, our privates were very public. When our hairy ancestors were in heat, their vajayjay butts would swell up and then they’d go around trying to get laid by showing off the hot mess to the males like this. Conversely, since the apes walked around on all fours, the men’s junk was hidden, so if they popped up, no one was the wiser. Needless to say, ape sexuality was totally backwards by today’s human standards. So, how’d our fates get reversed? Keep reading »
I took a Women’s Studies class in college where we had to make a clay model of the way we viewed our bodies. Mine was extremely misshapen. But clay models aren’t just for burgeoning adults exploring their political self identity — they’re also for horny couples looking to try the Kama Sutra! The “Sculpta Sutra” is a claymation kit designed as a “fun, hands-on way for partners to learn more about adventurous love making.” The kit comes complete with enough dough to make two “very flexible sex instructors” who, with the help of a handy dandy guidebook featuring over 30 positions, will tell you everything you need to know about the ancient art of doing it. The kit does not come complete with an artistic gene, however, so your Position #14 may still look like mush. [BaronBob.com] [Link contains clay penises so is therefore NSFW.] Keep reading »
Sex can do a lot of things. It can get you knocked up, give you an STD, or make you feel glorious, and doctors and researchers just love spouting off the benefits of having a healthy sex life.
