We all know that a blocked up or stuffy nose can be cleared by having sex, but it’s now a fact, backed up in yesterday’s press by Professor Merlin Thomas of Monash University. He’s the author of The Longevity List – he says: ‘Changes to blood flow during sex, and particularly after orgasm, can unblock the nose and make it easier to fall asleep.’

No falling asleep on the job now!

Happy love-making.

Feeling old and wrinkly?   Leave a comment

Researchers at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital tell us that regular sex can prevent lines and wrinkles.
People in their forties who had sex two or three times a week were judged to look seven to thirteen years younger – probably down to DHEA, a hormone released during sex that can increase collagen production.
You heard it here; stay young and beautiful; no excuses now!

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.

The Wrong Blood!   Leave a comment

For a study carried out for Ordu University in Turkey, 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 types A, B, or AB were three to four times more likely to flop in the bedroom than those with blood type ‘O’. Just 16% with O blood types had problems, compared with 42% of those with A blood types.

Happy love-making, whatever your blood type!

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. The 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.

Happy Love-Making
