Mothers and Sex   Leave a comment

Mum really DOES know best!

Dr Laura Widman, of the Teen Health Lab at North Carolina State University analysed research of 25,000 teenagers over 30 years, about discussing with parents contraception and risky sexual conduct.

It is ‘the chat’ dads, and teenagers, dread most. But the research suggests that those who did talk it over with a parent made them more likely to practise safe sex – and it’s better still if done by Mum.

Under 25s make up more than six in ten chlamydia cases in the UK, more than 140,000 annually.

Particularly among mothers and girls, ‘communication with parents’ has a protective effect on adolescent contraceptive and condom use.┬áThe results are published in JAMA Pediatrics.

There is another way – and you know what I mean – my book even has a chapter devoted to ‘Communication’, to help Mum or Dad, as well another on ‘Conception and Contraception’. So you’ll know all about it – Mums too!

Happy love-making.

The Wrong Blood   Leave a comment

A study shows that men with blood type A, B or AB are up to four times more likely to suffer from erectile dysfunction than men who have blood type O.

It doesn’t alter the fact that smoking, being overweight, and having high blood pressure are thought to be the most important factors, however the study carried out by Ordu University in Turkey suggests your blood type may be as influential.

Researchers took blood samples from 350 men in their sixties and split them into two groups according to whether they had erectile problems. The results revealed men with blood types A, B or AB were three to four times more likely to fail in the bedroom than those with blood type O.

Just 16 per cent with O blood types had problems, compared with 42 per cent of those with blood type A.

If you’re having problems, get checked out – there is help out there.

It’s a Super Healthy Activity – Official   Leave a comment

Have you heard about the ‘Two Week Challenge’? You must have sex every single day for 14 days. This is good for you. Really.

Reported in the Mail on Sunday this morning, Kate Garraway, a presenter on UK ITV, wrote about interviewing her friend who had just spent two weeks in Paris, doing The Challenge, with her husband! It doesn’t matter where you do it, in the bedroom, in the kitchen, in the cupboard, on the stairs – just don’t miss a day. For two weeks.

Studies carried out in Israel showed that women who had two orgasms a week were almost a third less likely to have heart disease. Another study at Queens University, Belfast, found that having sex 3 times a week could slash your heart attack and stroke risk.

It is a super healthy activity.

There is now evidence that it improves your cognitive function and appears to ward off dementia.

What have I been banging on about all these years?!

Happy Love-Making.

More semen   Leave a comment

Men in a new relationship produce more semen and healthier sperm, compared with men seeing a woman long-term. This was suggested in the journal Evolutionary Psychological Science; the thinking behind this statement is that it is a tactic by the male body to ensure their sperm competes with other sperm to fertilise an egg.

Happy Love-Making.

Zelda’s recommendation   Leave a comment

Yesterday I said to look out for today’s YOU magazine in the Mail on Sunday.
Today, Zelda West-Meads did me proud! But she quoted the publisher’s full price for the hardback version. Look around, readers, you can get it in softcover or eBook at a much better price.
Happy love-making.
Clive.

Don’t miss Zelda West-Meads, relationships expert, mention of my book in tomorrow’s YOU Magazine.

Coital Orgasms   8 comments

Yesterday’s news told us about a US study of six women! SIX women? Any study for research should involve thousands before coming to any realistic conclusion!
But I have to agree with their findings on this one – they found that having an orgasm during sex could boost fertility by 15%. Writing in Sociaffective Neuroscience & Psychology, the researchers said: ‘It appears female orgasm does perform some sort of sperm-retention function.’

This ‘retention’ was explained by me in 2008. Vaginal spasms during orgasm create a ‘sucking’ movement by the vagina making tenting shapes. Any man fortunate, and sensitive enough, will tell you that he feels as though he is being held, or sucked, in during this very satisfying period – for both partners.

Happy love-making.
