Pillow Talk   Leave a comment

A man’s personal levels of testosterone can show in the way he whispers ‘sweet nothings’ in his lover’s ears after making love. Those with high levels tend to be reluctant to indulge in chitchat, and those with lower levels are keener, and better at it.

Researchers for a study led by the University of Connecticut described how post-sex communication may serve ‘an important role in not only sustaining a satisfying sexual relationship between partners, but may also contribute to more general feelings of relationship satisfaction and closeness’.

The possible risks of disclosure include ‘loss of control, embarrassment, hurt or rejection’, the researchers say in the Journal of Social and Personal Relationships. The benefits may include ‘increased intimacy, closeness and satisfaction’. The researchers went on to say: ‘Not only does the current study contribute to researchers’ theoretical understanding of sexual communication, privacy boundaries, and biology, but it could also have broader practical implications for romantic relationships.’

But we already knew this, didn’t we? In the chapter entitled The Importance of Communication in my book Exploring Sex, Love and Lust, you’ll find all the answers you need for the perfect sexual relationship – written in an easy-going style, and plain English!

Happy love-making.

Memory Booster for Women   Leave a comment

Seventy-eight women aged 30 or under took a memory test involving abstract words, then filled in a questionnaire on sex. This was carried out as part of a study by researchers at McGill University in Canada.

Those who had sex more often were better able to recall the abstract words.

The researchers came to the conclusion that frequent sex can generate more neurons in the area of the brain that controls memory.

So what are you waiting for?

Happy love-making.

Don’t Do This   Leave a comment

We fellas often make the mistake of thinking that females find seeing a nude male as sexually stimulating as we find seeing a nude woman. This is not so.

Even worse, for a woman to see an otherwise nude man wearing only his socks is the biggest turn off of all.

If you forget all the other rules, remember this one. Don’t do it.

Happy love-making

Worry-Free Orgasms   Leave a comment

Here’s some good news – women do not need to be totally relaxed to enjoy sex.

You don’t need to ‘switch off’ from life to achieve orgasm. The latest study, by Dr Nan Wise, a US neuroscientist, involved ten women experiencing orgasm while their brain activity was followed by MRI scanner. They observed that brain activity in regions responsible for movement, senses, memory and emotions, all gradually increased during the lead-up to orgasm, when activity then peaked and lowered again.

The latest study discovered that the female orgasm is truly ‘mind-blowing’, as it activates the same part of the brain involved in ‘out-of-body experiences.’

Dr Wise, whose research is published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, said of the findings: ‘We found no evidence of deactivation of brain regions during orgasm,’ and went on to say ‘This suggests that the brain does not need to be switched off for a woman to experience orgasm.’

She also said: ‘I don’t believe women have to be worry-free at the time, they just need to focus on the sensation of what is happening. Then this will essentially take over as what they are focusing on.’

Here’s the technical bit: The study, reported in New Scientist magazine, also found a part of the brain, called the dorsal raphe nucleus, becomes more active during orgasm. This is involved with releasing serotonin, which can dampen pain, explaining why women may be less likely to notice being in pain during climax.

Dr Wise said: ‘When you think of it, an out-of-body experience is a state of altered consciousness. And you also get to a point in orgasm where you are taken completely out of yourself.’

So no worries! Just enjoy your love-making.

Want to get pregnant?   Leave a comment

Research shows that lying on your back after sex won’t increase a woman’s chances of conceiving.

In a study last year by VU University Medical Centre, Amsterdam, women having artificial insemination were told to stay in bed for 15 minutes, or get up immediately – the latter became pregnant more easily!

The researchers said there was no reason to stay in bed for longer than it takes to ‘get your breath back.’

You can read how fast sperm swim and how long it takes to travel from the man’s ejaculation to penetrating the female egg, and all the struggles it has to face on its way, in Exploring Sex, Love and Lust.

Happy love-making.

Stay Positive – Stay Sexy   Leave a comment

A good reason to stay positive as you age:

Researchers at the University of Waterloo in Canada interviewed 1,170 people in their 40s and 70s about their attitudes to ageing and sex, and found that those with less positive views on getting older, enjoyed and desired sex less.

This was reported in The Journal of Sex Research. So, if you want to keep it up right into old age, stay positive!

Happy love-making.
