Sleep More – Improve Your Love Life   Leave a comment

A study in the Journal of Sexual Medicine discovered if a woman slept for an extra hour, she’d have a 14% higher chance of enjoying a sexual encounter with her lover the next day.

Previous studies have shown lack of sleep releases cortisol – the stress hormone – which reduces testosterone, limiting her sex drive.

Reckon the same rule applies to the fellas, too.

Happy love-making.

Is Pornography giving you a Headache?   Leave a comment

An interesting piece of research reported yesterday by neurologists from Taiwan. They said that studying brain scans of a 40 year old married man who regularly looked at internet porn showed activity in areas of the brain normally associated with pain, not sex.

One theory is that in some people, viewing pornography triggers an increase in blood flow to the brain at such levels that it causes pain.

Most of us think about viewing porn for arousal, not a headache. But if you fall into this category at least you know the reason why now.

But if she complains of a headache, what does that make you think?!

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.

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!
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.

Best Part of Sex   Leave a comment

Reported this week by the journal PLOS One, is that most people think the best part of sex is the kisses and cuddles, not the act itself.

Researchers in the US asked nearly 2,000 people their thoughts on nearly 50 sexual behaviors and found affectionate and romantic behavior appealed to both men and women.

Happy love-making.
