When it comes to keeping your brain lean and mean well into old age, you’re better off using your vibrator than spending time solving crossword or Sudoku puzzles, claims neuroscientist Professor Barry Komisaruk of Rutgers University. In a new study, Komisaruk, who has been researching female arousal since the ’60s, measured blood flow to women’s brains at the height of orgasm. He discovered a tremendous increase in blood flow to many regions of the brain, resulting in a boost in nutrients and oxygenation. “Mental exercises increase brain activity but only in relatively localized regions. Orgasm activates the whole [thing],” Komisaruk explained. It’s not like you’re going to give up your Sunday crossword puzzle or your ongoing game of virtual Scrabble, just make sure you’re supplementing your brain workouts it with some orgasms. Done and done. [Daily Mail UK] [Photo from Shutterstock]
“Your orgasm is your problem,” my ex-husband once said to me.
I frowned at his suggestion and two days later, some books appeared on my night table: I Love Female Orgasm and The Elusive Orgasm. I resentfully cracked one open and it seemed like a lot of trite stuff about the importance of relaxation. I couldn’t be more relaxed in my marital sex life if I tried. For Godʼs sake, I was almost asleep. How bad was the sex in my marriage? Well, after my ex-husband would leave for work in the morning Iʼd bust out my Hitachi magic wand and relieve myself multiple times. When he returned from the office, heʼd often see the shoulder massager laying lifeless on the floor.
“How many times did you beat off today? Four? God youʼre a freak,” heʼd say, shaming me. Keep reading »
After an accident left 43-year-old Rafe Biggs a quadriplegic, he found a new way to experience sexual pleasure. About a year after becoming paralyzed, Rafe discovered that he has a “surrogate penis”… on his hand when he was able to have an orgasm by having his girlfriend suck his thumb.
“I felt this build-up of energies and felt I was getting closer and closer to orgasm … When I did it was one wave of pleasure after another – it was amazing. I never thought it would be possible, but massaging and sucking on my thumb, feels a lot like my penis used to feel – it’s really hot,” said Rafe.
Doctors call this a “transfer orgasm,” when another body part gives the same sensation as the genitals. I call that un-fucking-believable. Good for Rafe and his penis thumb. [IB Times]

At the age of three, I already didn’t want to be a girl. I saw from watching my mom what it was like to be a grown-up girl and it didn’t look good. Here are the few memories from childhood that I hadn’t managed to suppress:
We came home once to find our apartment ransacked by burglars. I was forced to drink powdered milk everyday, which I hated. My dad chasing my mom with a big knife into the kitchen. My brother and I, who were kneeling facing the wall as punishment for who-knows-what, turned and watched them run by. Screaming. My dad coming in the bathroom interrupting me and my brother taking a shower together. He came in to punish my brother, hitting him on the butt. My brother remembers us hiding under the dining table while chairs were being thrown around. Apparently my dad used to bring women home, even when my mom was home.
Needless to say I was a sad little kid. By the time I escaped to the U.S. at age six I told myself my life starts now and never to look back. Keep reading »
Sports photographers are in heaven during the Olympics, having the opportunity to capture athletes at the peak of their careers — and, if we didn’t know better, the peak of orgasm. If these aren’t the faces of a big finish, then I don’t know what is! It’s photo ops like these that have us wondering: orgasm or Olympic medal?

The way a woman moves is very telling. A carefully placed hand on your lap means she’s open to getting closer, but if she’s always putting an object between you (a table, a subway pole, another man), it’s time to back off. But according to a new study, you can infer a lot more than her interest level based on her walk.
Researchers at the Universite Catholique de Louvain discovered that a woman’s sexual history — specifically, if she regularly orgasms during intercourse — can be detected in her stride. The study involved two groups of women: those who had a sexual history of orgasms and those who did not. These women were then videotaped walking, and the videos were evaluated by a group of sexologists. (Jealous of their daytime job? We are.) Read more …
