Good Sex Makes Babies

More babies are made when the people involved in the process have orgasms. When men are fully stimulated, they ejaculate up to 50 percent more than during just any ole intercourse, and an extra five minutes of going at it before he gets off can produce even more sperm. For women, scientists believe that having orgasms can help them suck up the sperm and send it on its way into the uterus. And I haven’t even told you about the pig research yet! Danish researchers have found that sows (female pigs) that were sexually stimulated by farmers during artificial insemination had a 6 percent increase on their fertility. Don’t worry, that can’t be nearly as dirty as it sounds because the Danish government gives farmers instructions on how to stimulate their pigs. Moral of the story: If you’re lucky enough to be having really good sex that’s chock full of orgasms, don’t get careless with your birth control. [The Observer] Keep reading »

Get Your Designer Baby In Six Months

Dr. Jeff Steinberg of Fertility Institutes of Manhattan and L.A., who has let thousands choose the sex of their babies, now says that in six months he will also be able to let parents decide the eye and hair color of their kid. “In the process of doing gender selection … we’ve also uncovered the technology [to] characterize things like eye and hair color,” said Steinberg. Of course, would-be moms and dads, will only have the choice of blue or brown eyes and blond or black hair. Doctors will create the designer babies during pre-implantation genetic diagnosis, a procedure used to find problem embryos and to allow parents to pick the sex. After examining the genetic makeup of embryos created in the lab, doctors will only implant the ones that have the greatest chance of giving parents the desired traits.

I don’t think I’ve ever agreed with the Pope or right-to-lifers on anything, but when it comes to the idea of Build-A-Bear style babies, we’re in agreement. Keep reading »

The Fear Of Infertility

I was lying there on the cold, hard examining table. A stranger came in and before I knew it, I was uncomfortably spreading my legs. He told me it wouldn’t hurt and proceeded to stick a strange contraption up into my body. I was there to find out “if all my parts were as they should be.” Keep reading »

OctoMom To Star In Porn Movie?

MAKE IT STOP. OctoMom, a.k.a. Nadya Suleman, a.k.a. the brood-having, Angelina Jolie-wannabe, has been offered $1 million to star in an adult movie. I think my head just exploded. The offer comes from Vivid Entertainment, one of the adult industry’s biggest product companies — it’s like the 20th Century Fox of smut, or, well, not. If Suleman joins the Vivid porn star ranks to become a Vivid Girl, she’ll be sisters-in-porn with a celebrity-gone-XXX roster that includes Pam Anderson, Kim Kardashian, and former Miss USA Kelli McCarty. (An Oscar-nominated lineup that ain’t.) The offer comes from the uber-tan CEO of Vivid, Steve Hirsch, the dude responsible for turning Janine, Savannah, and Ginger Lynn into mega-porn stars. Of course, considering that Janine is headed off to jail in a couple weeks, Savannah blew her brains out, and Ginger — well, I don’t know what Ginger is up to these days — OctoMom going PornoMom may not be such a good idea. But, hey, it’d pay the bills. Not to mention keep the octuplets in diapers for a couple years. [TMZ] Keep reading »

Baby Fever: Fours Hours Of Play In Under Three Minutes

I’m in a constant state of baby fever, which is why I love this video of little Charles-Edward. His parents filmed him using time lapse videography, over the course of a four hour play session. It is ridiculous how much that kid accomplishes. Get ready to “Awwwww….” Keep reading »

Giving Birth To Twins Would Streamline Your Life

When we heard about a new procedure that can check a fertilized egg’s viability before it’s implanted, we thought there might be fewer multiple births in the future. Well, it’s not looking that way. Apparently women, especially career-oriented ones, are hoping more than one egg will take when they get in vitro, so they can get more than one pregnancy and child birth over with at the same time. An article in Page Six Magazine this weekend included interviews with mothers who happily gave birth to twins. After the jump, a few of our favorite quotes from ladies who loved getting “two for the price of one.”

Multiple Baby Births May Become A Thing Of The Past

Yesterday, a California woman gave birth to octuplets, but such multiple baby births could become even more rare in the future. A new procedure has been developed that is said to check eggs for viability before they’re implanted in a woman’s uterus. Keep reading »

    Poll: Proof That John McCain Hates Babies?

    Yesterday we posted about the new website “Yes We Can (Hold Babies)”, a blog comprised of adorable Pro-Obama babies and babies being held by the Democratic Presidential candidate. Then we noticed a strange thing: while it’s easy to find plenty of Associated Press photos of Obama holding and smooching little rugrats, McCain is rarely photographed with babies (see above EXCLUSIVE PROOF). Of the results for McCain, none of them actually featured the Senator HOLDING a child, though one was of him standing in front of a picture of a fetus. So what does this mean? Does the photographic record show that McCain HATES babies? Weigh in! Keep reading »

    Can You Judge A Politician Based On His Baby-Holding Abilities?

    I’m not sure, but Barack Obama supporters certainly have a lot of cute examples if they decide to use that as campaign fodder. Oh wait! They have! “Yes We Can (Hold Babies)” has already launched and it’s filled with adorableness. But what about McCain? While there’s no site called “Country First (Babies Too!)” (snatching that URL up, pronto!), I tried to find a picture of McCain doing some infant nuzzling on AP. No such luck. After the jump, the closest thing I could find…. Keep reading »
