Mind Of Man: Why Is Xmas So Sexy?

This column originally appeared on The Frisky on December 24, 2008.

Trojan condoms report their highest sales of the year take place in the week between Christmas and New Year’s Eve. Researchers attribute this spike to holiday downtime, New Year’s resolutions to get knocked up, and booze-fueled Yuletide revelry. It seems counter-intuitive, and almost…

Women Whose Names End In “A” Have More Sex

I don’t need a study to tell me that I was destined to be a hoochie mama, but here one is anyway. According to a French study, women whose names end in the letter “a” have more sexual partners over the course of their lifetime than the average woman, who typically has 4.4 partners. Um,…

Is Pornography To Blame For Declining Sex In Relationships?

Yesterday, the Daily Mail reported that sex for women over the age of 35 is rapidly declining — or, at least, people are more willing to admit to declining sex in their relationships than they used to be. Today, the same paper is suggesting this trend could be blamed on men’s increased preference for internet…

What If Having Sex Made You Lose Your Memory?

What if you woke up one morning in bed, lying next to your loving husband/boyfriend/whatever, and didn’t have any concept of what day, month, or, hell, year it was? And what if you found out, after being rushed to the doctor, that the reason for your short-term memory loss was that you had sex the…

Should People Vow To Have Regular Sex When They Marry?

In a recent Savage Love column, Dan Savage made a pretty provocative assertion that “when we marry, we’re signing up to f**k someone at least semiregularly for decades. Not interested in f**king? Don’t marry.” He was responding to a letter from a woman whose husband, despite jerking off to porn three times a week, only…

Do Skinny Women Really Have More Sex?

Listen, I don’t know where they get this “research” or who they’re asking, but according to a new study, women who are a size four have sex more often than size eight women. Now, I think if they continued to do the math they’d find size 16’s like me do it even more than both…

‘Tis The Season For Having Sex

Need another reason to look forward to the holiday season? New research says the Christmas through New Years period produces an increase in the number of people who have sex. This can be attributed to the lengthy time off and the rise in party hoppers combined with boozing it up in abundance.

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Doing It & Thinking About Doing It

There’s a commonly held belief that men are always thinking about sex. Always. I actually think women think about sex almost as often, though not necessarily in the same ways. But another accepted belief is that dudes would have sex all the time, if given the choice — I wasn’t sure if that was true,…

The Breakup Diaries: My Six-Month Sex Sabbatical

My breakup is…hold on, checking the calendar…almost three-months-old. Which means my hoo-ha has about three months worth of dust gathering inside it. About, oh, three weeks ago, I reached the point in the breakup evolution where I felt a sudden aching urge to have sex. With someone. Anyone even, after a few glasses of wine.

Poll: Do You Get It On With The Lights On Or Off?

Yesterday I was chatting with our Mind Of Man about this very subject — he believes that woman, in fact, are generally the ones who want the lights on and that men (particularly him) want the lights off (or at least significantly dimmed). Personally, I don’t really care, though I would prefer not to knock…

Poll: Could You Have Sex Every Day For A Year?

The New York Times had an interesting article in the Style section about two couples, both with books coming out, who made a commitment to have sex every day for a set period of time. One couple did it everyday for a year, the other for 101 days straight. The premise was that to kee…
