Do sex and orgasm go together like peanut butter and chocolate? There’s no denying that both do taste great together (unless you are allergic to peanuts). But you could have one without the other, right? Right? Read more … Keep reading »
Whether you’re having sexual intercourse, oral sex, or just fooling around, there is nothing more irritating than something ruining your orgasm just before you climax. After all, orgasming isn’t easy to achieve, at least not for everyone. So when you’ve been working towards the big O and suddenly stumble, you’ll definitely be experiencing some serious sexual frustration. Not only do men get blue balls, women get them too. We just call them pink balls. Whether you get pink-balled or blue-balled, sexual frustration isn’t easy to relieve, especially when you have to deal with any of these 21 orgasm killers.

Is there a logical explanation as to why women can’t climax consistently or (in some cases) ever during sexual intercourse? Can a pill, patch, cream, or (gulp) vaginal collagen injection, morph a frigid woman into one who orgasms with male consistency?
The answer: Nobody knows. Naturally. But that hasn’t stopped science, bless its heart, from trying. But should they? A recently released documentary, “Orgasm Inc.,” begs ladies to think twice before assigning themselves to “female sexual dysfunction” a disorder companies are attempting to treat with a variety of fix-its. Director Liz Canner questions whether or not FSD even exists, and advises women proceed with caution. Regardless, below is a quick round-up of some ways the men and women in white lab coats have attempted to tinker and tweak the female libido to reach its full potential. Keep reading »
Plenty of guys fancy themselves a Doctor of Luv, but Dr. Barry Komisaruk of Rutgers University in a bonafide pioneer in studying the female orgasm. Dr. Komisaruk, 68, is a neuroscientist who uses brain imaging to study how our noggins function leading up to and during an orgasm. Female study subjects — who are paid $100 for their “labor” — must enter an fMRI machine and have their heads strapped down so they don’t move during the brain imaging. It takes an hour to map out which parts of a woman’s genitals correlate to which parts of her brain. Luckily, then the study subject is eventually allowed to bring herself to orgasm — using her own toy of choice, of course! The entire time, Dr. Komisaruk and his fellow researcher, grad student Nan Wise, 52, examine her brain responses onscreen in another room. They’ve watched over 200 orgasms this way so far.
First question: can we do this, please? Second question: what does the good doctor know about female orgasms that we should know, too? Keep reading »

Lipton asked six artists to design labels for its new flavors of Brisk Iced Tea, and our jaw dropped when we noticed Tristan Eaton’s, which illustrates the sweet tea experience. “The inspiration for my design was capturing a moment of absolute happiness and satisfaction,” he said. “Hopefully my Sweet Tea flavor can give us all that taste of absolute satisfaction!” We can only hope sipping a bottle of the stuff will give us as much pleasure as the woman on the bottle clearly feels.

The Australian government apparently has some issues with a woman’s “down under.” The Classification Board for the country’s smut industry is working on banning porn that includes female ejaculation and/or small breasts. The censors are trying to block any websites that include or link to material that include these particular “offenders.” Customs officials are also being advised to confiscate any pornography that has instances of female ejaculation. So, I guess now would be an ideal time to look into becoming an Australian Customs Official since screening smut could be part of your job description? But this is not the most outrageous element of this new ban—what’s worse is the reasoning. Keep reading »
Yesterday, Simcha told us all about how anywhere between 11 and 25 percent of men have faked an orgasm, due to exhaustion, disinterest, performance anxiety, and, uh, boner loss. So, if those numbers are accurate, surely a few of the guys on our IM have faked it once or twice? One guy fessed up, while a few others seemed utterly confused as to how such a thing is possible anyway. (Apparently, they’re under the impression that our lady bits gush man-juice evidence post-sex.) Check out what they had to say, after the jump. Keep reading »
A new study shows that for women, desire follows – not precedes – sexual arousal. Rosemary Bason of the University of British Columbia explains that, “for many women, desire is not the cause of lovemaking, but rather, its result.” Women often begin sexual experiences feeling sexually neutral, she says, but by the end of the sex sesh, they often feel more aroused than they had before they started fooling around.
Perhaps this is because most women don’t orgasm during intercourse. So, when the man is “satisfied” post-orgasm, the woman probably never reached her climax, and is, well, still wanting to! Obviously. Keep reading »
Smart women have the best sex. Duh.
After interviewing over 2,000 sets of adult women twins, who have identical everythings, Professor Tim Spector, a researcher at King’s College in London, found that if a lady isn’t afraid to express herself and picks up on what other people are expressing, she’s an orgasmic machine who can satisfy her partner like none other. Shockingly enough, being a “touchy-feely” kind of gal isn’t as bad as it sounds. Sure, it might cause an awkward moment every now and again — I’m still sorry I hugged my ex-boss at the company Christmas party — but the good part of expressing your emotions means more feelings in your tunnel of love. Spector is convinced that “these findings show that emotional intelligence is an advantage in many aspects of your life, including the bedroom.” The researchers hope to use their evidence to help the nearly 40 percent of women who say they can’t get off.
So, next time someone tells you to stop being so emotional, tell them to stop trying to ruin your sex life. Feel free to pop in “The Notebook” DVD, open a tub of Ben ‘n’ Jerry’s, and let those tear ducts drip. Feelings are the new foreplay. [Daily Mail] Keep reading »
