 Healthy
OMG Facts:
One tablespoon of semen has approximately 20 calories. Semen also contains zinc and calcium which helps prevent tooth decay.

One typical ejaculation contains 150 mg of protein, 11 mg of carbohydrates, 6 mg fat, 3 mg cholesterol, 7% US RDA potassium and 3% US RDA copper and zinc. The protein content is roughly equivalent to that found in one egg white. Also, women physically exposed to semen are less likely to suffer from depression. The ingesting of it is called 'spermophagia'. Studies suggest that seminal plasma both prevents and fights cancer, particularly breast cancer.

 Sexbots for women
picture IEET:
Sexbots already have a large following of fetishists and “plastic lovers.” Most surveys agree that fetishists are most often male (from 80% to 95%), and fetishes and paraphilias are often rooted in separations from the mother and a resulting attachment to transitional objects. The percentage of females with fetishes is relatively small. Since the desire for transitional objects could possibly be fulfilled by sexbots, I’d guess that 90% of sales will [at first] be to men, but as time progresses and sexbots become far more advanced, the women’s percentage will increase...

I think women may be interested in sexbots for therapeutic reasons, rather than just sexual. Qualities such as security and safety can be an erotic stimulant for women. I feel hesitant to also voice the cliché about women being nurturers by nature, but I do think there is often a latent tendency to care for things, from dolls and stuffed animals to men. I’ve read many interviews of women who employ male escorts, and they state that they enjoy being treated in a chivalrous manner for a change, being spoiled, and just having an all-around good time, rather than just the sexual act alone...

 Women Who Wear Less Clothing Live Longer
Huffington Post:
Philomena Bushfield, 120, is a life-long nudist who hasn't "worn more than a pair of socks since I was 7." She is rarely sick, still runs in marathons, and has the energy and enthusiasm of a woman half her age. "It also made it much easier to meet men," says Bushfield, who currently has three different boyfriends.

Liz Sexton, 117, was a strip-tease artist for most of her life. "I was stripping until I was 83," recalls Sexton. "Didn't even need to wear a bra till I was 95." To this day, Sexton wouldn't wear clothing if you paid her. "Your skin can't breathe with all that covering. And besides, I like to feel the cool air whistling over and under my yah-yahs."

A retired Biblical scholar, Beverly McKinnon, 112, took to dressing like the Garden of Eden's Eve early on. "I've found it so comfortable to wear my three strategically-positioned fig leaves," McKinnon says. "It's my connection to the Bible, to man and woman's origin, and to getting a lifetime's worth of appreciative hoots and whistles from the men of my village." McKinnon recently returned from her fourth expedition to climb Mount Everest...
I'd like to believe, but this was clearly filed in the humor section, not in the science section.

 Human Ancestors Had Sex with Now-extinct Relatives
IBtimes:
A new research indicates that our ancient human ancestors may have bred with a now extinct species of humanity before migrating from Africa to Eurasia.

Modern humans who are known as Homosapiens are now the only surviving species of humanity while other who once roamed the Earth, made their way out of Africa before humans did.

Recent genetic analysis of fossils from other ancient human species, such as Neanderthals in West Asia and Europe and the Denisovans in East Asia, have revealed that they once interbred with Homosapiens, giving modern humans genetic mutations that protected them as they began expanding across the globe about 65,000 years ago...

 The Neurological Orgasm
IEET:
Some stimuli will invoke a huge, quick response, and others a smaller, yet longer, extended response. There is a varying degree of neurotransmitter release depending on the strength of the stimulus, as well as how long we are in the presence of it. Remember last time - I told you that the longer you interface with a stimulus, or the more time you spend interacting with it, the greater attachment you will form to it.

Some studies have looked at the different types of sex and the variable neurochemical responses based on the type of sex the person is engaging in. However, it is probably not the case that the penis causes more dopamine to be released than a vibrator, for example. More likely, it is the state of mind the person is in that really has an effect on the amount of pleasure he or she is experiencing.

The cognitive state of the brain at any given moment in time is what causes the release of dopamine, whether it is prompted by a physical or a mental stimulus. Can the brain be stimulated via tactile nerve pathways to release large amounts of dopamine? Sure. However, consider this: You can give one person two separate, yet identical patterns of physiological stimulation, and end up getting radically different subjective experiences as a result. This implies that it is not just the physical act of sex that gives us so much pleasure, but how we represent that act in our mind that really has impact...

 Porn on the Mind
Scientific American:
Wenner’s story goes beyond saying porn is safe. It suggests that it might actually be beneficial. I am not sure I buy this, but some coincidences worth mentioning back up this view. First, as access to Internet pornography grew in this country, rates of rapes and sexual assault went in the opposite direction. Those stats are at their lowest levels since the 1960s. And something similar happened in Japan, China and Denmark. Along those lines, the U.S. states in which rapes rose by 53 percent had the least Internet access between 1980 and 2000—and so the least access to Internet porn. States with the most access saw a 27 percent drop in reported rapes...

 Sex Prude-ucation
Femanist View
Sex feels good. It's about huge and satisfying sensations, it's about being physical and full of fun hormones and endorphins and neurotransmitters and stuff. It's about enjoying each other's bodies and your own. None of that has to be "relationships" or "emotions" in any long-term sense. Why should sex have to be anything to do with love, for it to count or be viewed as a good thing? As Tina Turner sang, "What's love got to do with it?"

People may feel that the stuff that I did with Julie or with SNS had "nothing to do with love", if they watched it on a video, but they would be wrong to reach such a conclusion.

Of course sex should not be abusive or degrading. The problem is that when it comes to what is degrading, a lot of the times it is in the eye of the beholder. Some people would, again, argue that what I do with my sexual partners is degrading, but neither they nor I found it to be so...

 Perverse Incentives
Atlantic:
Though the recession has blunted overall demand for cosmetic surgeries, one subcategory appears to be entering a growth phase, at least judging from the fifth annual Congress on Aesthetic Vaginal Surgery, held late last year in a luxury resort outside Tucson. There, about 60 doctors, most of them OB-GYNs, converged to discuss the expanding field of “cosmetic-gyn”—elective surgeries for women seeking to “rejuvenate” and/or “beautify” their vaginas. Attendance at the conference has been increasing by about 20 percent each year—one doctor there explained that his services are in such demand, he has multiple operating rooms so he can move quickly from one surgery to the next—and last year a competing conference was held at the Venetian in Las Vegas...

 Creepiest thing you've ever done?
Reddit:
About 10 years ago, a friend of mine was going through a bad breakup. She needed something to cheer her up so I went to a local Party City, bought about 40 different balloons filled with helium, some groucho marx glasses, and a noisemaker. I went to her apartment, had her buzz me in, and took the elevator up to her floor. Her door was open a crack, so I kicked it open and started singing "Hello my baby" with the noise maker thing in my mouth. A few seconds into the song, through all the balloons which were blocking my view, I see a woman who is not my friend that I came to see, wearing nothing but a towel that was probably thrown on the second I kicked the door and I stop singing just as she starts to scream. Then a naked man, who looked to be about 10 feet tall, built like Hercules, with a deep look of hatred burning in his eyes, pushes aside the balloons and starts screaming something at me as I turn and run as fast as my fat ass could towards the elevator. I finally made it to my friends apartment (One floor up) just after she got off the phone from calling the police after hearing the screams in the apartment directly below her...

 Common Sex Issues
Fox:
Q: How can I make sex less painful?
A: According to results from the recent National Survey of Sexual Health, nearly 1 in 3 women experience pain during sex. While some of these women may have vulvodynia, a condition marked by chronic vulvar pain, it’s more likely that most women’s pain is caused by everyday issues like vaginal dryness or certain sexual positions. Thankfully, a little lubricant can make many sexual experiences more enjoyable. There are more lubricants available today than ever before – and they are more widely available as well. Also, another way to decrease pain is to increase the time spent during foreplay. Not only can foreplay increase vaginal lubrication, but it can also help pull the uterus upward, making more room in the vaginal canal and decreasing the chances a guy will hit the uterus during deep thrusting...

 Sex with someone from the future can be hazardous to your health
Discover:
There comes a time in every science writer’s career when one must write about female sea monkeys having sex with male sea monkeys from the future, and the troubles that follow. That time is now.

In many species of animals, males and females have a conflict of evolutionary interests. Males compete with each other for the opportunity to fertilize the eggs of females. Males use all sorts of strategies in these competitions. They fight with each other for territory, they scare off intruding males, they put scrapers into females to dump out the sperm from previous males, and they inject “anti-aphrodiasiacs” to make females unreceptive to other males...

 Sex & the High Octane Woman
Psychology Today:
While sex and sexuality may be a "minefield," as Marche calls it, for some powerful and successful women, others have no issues at all with sex and their sexuality ... if only they had time for it! A recent survey of 3000 working parents in the UK not only revealed that working parents have precious little time to relax, it also discovered that over a quarter of those surveyed felt that their sex life suffered due to their hectic schedules and the exhaustion they felt from trying to keep up with all of their commitments. In the US, a recent survey suggests the problem here is even worse. As reported on CBS's The Early Show, a recent national survey of working parents revealed that approximately two-thirds of those surveyed often feel too tired to have sex, and a national survey conducted by the National Sleep Foundation found that 33% of women surveyed reported that they had too little time or were too tired to have sex...

 How Can Men Make Sex More Exciting For Women?
Staggered:
Q: It’s easy for women to spice things up in the bedroom with sexy lingerie but what can us men do to make things more exciting? I don’t fancy putting on a shiny silver g-string.

A: You are right that it’s easy for women as lingerie will do it almost every time. According to esoteric philosophy men are naturally the voyeurs who gaze adoringly, whilst women are the natural “exhibitionists” who love the attention, being adored and worshipped. What this means for you is that you can heave a huge sigh of relief, that, as much as you don’t want to wear the spandex g-string, it probably won’t do much for her either.

Even in modern western culture we know that men’s sexual response is mainly visual, and the Tao seemed to know this a few thousand years earlier.

To spice things up, why not slip into your natural role of the voyeur instead by doing what she will love. Adore her. All you have to do is to worship her body. Keep the lights on, but low, and admire every inch of her skin, caress it, not only with your hands, but your eyes. Invite her to be the exhibitionist, to display her beauty to you. Let her know you want to feast your eyes on every bit of her. Make appreciative comments and noises...
