I consider it my job (well, I guess it is my job) to track the clusterfuck of sex surveys and data inundating the interwebs and bring you the results. (Because I know you are just sitting around WAITING to find out what kind of car people most like to have a quickie in.) According to a survey of 2,018 adults done by car manufacturer BBA Reman (and why they were doing a sex survey, we’ll never know, but they did), 49 percent of Britons have had sex in a car at least once. OK, not shocking. But wait. Here’s the shocking part: Of those 49 percent who’ve done car sex, 27 percent said their preferred model was a Ford Fiesta, closely followed by a Volkswagon Golf. Seriously? Those are some tiny ass cars. It’s hard to imagine fitting one person in the backseat, let alone two. It’d be like fucking in a pistachio shell. If posed with this question myself, I’d have picked something more like a Hummer, just so I could move my legs, not because I support the gas-guzzling beasts. Keep reading »

Access to Birth Control Lowers Abortion Rates: Here’s something you might expect: providing women free contraception leads to fewer unexpected pregnancies and, thus, a lower abortion rate. But in a study published this year, researchers were actually surprised by how much the abortion rate dropped among women who were offered access to a range of free birth control methods. Read more…
Recently, dating and social media site Cheaterville released a survey of its users on the topic of hair color and cheating. The website is a place where you can publicly call out cheating partners — their slogan is “Don’t be the last to know” — and see names of others who have cheated. According to their results, hair color seems to play a role in how likely you are to cheat.
Cheaterville’s survey found that blonde women are more likely to cheat than brunettes, whereas male cheaters are more likely to have brown hair. In fact, 43 percent of female cheaters were blonde (and blondes are, what, 5 percent of the population?), 23 percent were brunette and 11 percent had black hair. As for the men, 40 percent of the unfaithful had brown hair, 23 percent had black hair, 20 percent were blonde and 5 percent were redheads. Read more…
One surprising way to boost your sex life will have you putting down that “101 Best Sex Tips” guide and whipping out the yoga pants! In a recent article in The Journal of Sexual Medicine, researchers revealed that women who were once unsatisfied with their sex lives but began to practice yoga and “Eastern techniques of mindfulness” reported higher levels of sexual desire, arousal and better orgasms. Now, don’t assume better sex comes simply from learning a couple cool new moves or becoming extra flexible, even though those are definitely pluses. Actually, practitioners believe the most important aspect of yoga that increases sexual appetite and responsiveness is “mindfulness.” Keep reading »
I had a good chuckle over Made Man’s list of Things Science Says Women Love. Apparently we are all suckers for homosexual men who look like our dads and don’t smile. Thanks, science! Oh, the image I’m conjuring right now is unsettling. Anyhow … I felt inspired to roundup a few of the things science says men love. Click through to find out what they are.
I am about to share some very personal information with my fellow Frisky ladies: I had my first orgasm in a playground. No, it wasn’t some fantastic moment of bliss shared with a sexy or dashing incredible hunk while hiding away in a plastic tunnel or something. It was simply a couple of seconds of ecstasy, followed by momentary confusion after climbing and sliding down one of those metal poles usually positioned next to the swing set or slide. I was pretty young, so I didn’t really think much of it or contemplate the complexity of my experience, but research can finally explain what happened to me that faithful, play-filled day. Supposedly, there is such a thing called “coregasms” (because of its association with the abdominal muscles) and thousands of women claim to have experienced them while biking/spinning, weight lifting and, as no surprise to me, climbing poles or ropes! This find has researchers wondering, could exercise be the key to female orgasm? I definitely think so. Check out the article for yourself and tell me what you think. [Science Blog]
