Running and Sex
Running Times
Shut the door and lock it. Now stand in front of the mirror and slowly take off your clothes. Marvel at your body -- the flatness of your stomach, the curve of your hamstrings. Years of running have made your hips lean and your calves sculpted. You are strong. You are beautiful. You are a runner.

And, fabulous physical specimen that you are, you love sex. Studies have shown that those who exercise have more sex than those who don't. If you're one of those readers who came to the sport later in life, research shows that you made the right decision. A Harvard University study found that athletes in their 40s and 60s had the same amount of sex as non-athletes 20 years younger. And it gets better. Men who run are better able to achieve and maintain an erection, and women who run have an easier time getting aroused and experience more intense orgasms...

 If Only I Could Understand Men…
Kiss & Tell:
1) Men are more sensitive than women. While that might sound silly, the truth is that men don’t have the ability to recover from emotional trauma as effectively as a woman. Because of this, men keep themselves from getting too upset. When a man hears he should just “let his feelings out,” what he translates that into is this, “If I let my feelings out, I might not be able to control them.” ..

 Is a dirty mind a sharper mind?
Salon:
The next time someone admonishes you for having a dirty mind, consider the case of Ed Cooke. He became a Grand Master of Memory at the age of 23 in part by harnessing his sexual imagination. It isn't just him, either: Cooke used this technique to coach Joshua Foer, author of the buzzy new book, "Moonwalking With Einstein: The Art and Science of Remembering Everything," to become the U.S. Memory Champion in under a year.

Cooke, the co-founder of the online learning site Memrise, argues that our brains are wired to remember bizarre and debauched mental images like nothing else. The concept is simple: You create a Memory Palace, a building that you can easily conjure in your mind's eye, and then fill it with shocking images that stand in for the information that needs to be remembered...

 What It Feels Like To Get F*cked In The Ass
Thought Catalog:
Getting your ass penetrated should be a prerequisite for life because it’s an experience that teaches humility and encourages teamwork. After the deed, you see your fellow man in a whole new empathetic light, the kind of light that’s humanizing, curbs any further judgements and could possibly end wars. It’s like, “You just let me put my penis in your ass and move it in and out for an hour. God bless you, you wonderful angel. Take this ‘get out of jail free’ card. You’ve earned it!”...

 Porn made for women, by women
picture Guardian:
[A] number of women, tired of mainstream porn and tired of criticising it without offering an alternative, are making the porn films they want to watch.

These films don't include horny schoolgirls, naughty nurses, nymphomaniac nannies or desperate housewives. Nor do they include Mafiosi, multimillionaires drinking cognac, pimps, drug dealers or super-sized sex machines. Because these women, as filmmakers and consumers, place themselves far away from mainstream porn.

"It is a prejudice to say that women don't like porn," says Erika Lust, another fem porn director. "Sex images make you hot, but pornography has been made by and for men. In mainstream porn everything is about male pleasure and women are objects. Oral sex for men can last forever, but when women's turn comes it lasts 10 seconds. Female orgasms are not an issue in most of the films. And women are shown mostly as prostitutes, which is sad."..

 How Humans Got Spineless Penises
Science Mag:
Most male mammals wield a penis covered with spines made of keratin, the same material that forms fingernails, to sweep out competitors' sperm and irritate a female into ovulating. You can add humans' lack of penile spines to the list of ways we are misfits among primates, along with our absence of tails and fur. Even chimpanzees, our closest relatives, have penile spines. A new study suggests that this feature disappeared due to a chunk of DNA that went missing after our evolutionary divergence from chimps. The researchers have identified another DNA deletion that may have contributed to humans' bigger brains...

 Sex worker rights are human rights
Sex Workers Rights:
There are many reasons why people document human rights violations. In rare cases, documenting violations and exposing them to the public can on its own put an end to abusive practices. More often, however, documentation is only part of a larger effort to end abuses. In addition, it may take years and a combination of efforts to put a stop to an abuse altogether. Advocacy efforts based on the evidence gathered through documentation should therefore identify interim goals that are realistic to achieve and that contribute in a meaningful way to creating the conditions necessary to eventually put a stop to abuse...

 The Allure of a Man’s Uncertainty
New York Times:
One group of women was told that these four men were those who liked them the most, a second group heard that these men rated them as average and a third group was left in the unsettling position of thinking that the men might like them either the most or an average amount.

Not surprisingly, women were more attracted to men who found them attractive than men who rated them average. This is called the “reciprocity principle,” which holds that a woman should like a man less if he doesn’t like her much, and reflects earlier research. The shocker was that the women who found the men most attractive of all were those who weren’t sure just how much the men liked them...

 Nymphomaniac brains
Slate:
Although Klüver-Bucy Syndrome is relatively rare, it's one of the most notorious neurological causes of a complete breakdown in one's ability to control sexual urges. In 1939, neuroanatomists Heinrich Klüver and Paul Bucy removed the greater portions of both temporal lobes and the rhinencephalon from the brains of rhesus monkeys. Among a host of other peculiar effects of this rather cruel vivisection, the monkeys became incredibly randy, displaying a prominent and indiscriminate desire to copulate. The first documented case of full-blown Klüver-Bucy in humans arrived in 1955, when an epilepsy patient underwent a bilateral temporal lobectomy (a surgical excision of the lobes) and subsequently developed a ravenous sexual appetite, among other things...

 Sex Is Cheap
Slate:
When attractive women will still bed you, life for young men, even those who are floundering, just isn't so bad. This isn't to say that all men direct the course of their relationships. Plenty don't. But what many young men wish for—access to sex without too many complications or commitments—carries the day. If women were more fully in charge of how their relationships transpired, we'd be seeing, on average, more impressive wooing efforts, longer relationships, fewer premarital sexual partners, shorter cohabitations, and more marrying going on. Instead, according to the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health (which collects data well into adulthood), none of these things is occurring. Not one. The terms of contemporary sexual relationships favor men and what they want in relationships, not just despite the fact that what they have to offer has diminished, but in part because of it. And it's all thanks to supply and demand...

 Bisexual women more likely to have tried anal sex
Slate:
Women attracted mostly to men are more likely to say they've had anal sex with a man than are women attracted only to men. And in the case of anal sex, the gap is huge: While 30 percent of the totally straight women say they've had anal sex, 55 percent of the mostly straight women say they've done it. But get this: Among women who say they're attracted equally, mostly, or exclusively to women, the figure is 41 percent. Lesbian and bisexual women are more likely than totally straight women to say they've had anal sex with a man...

 The artists who crossed the line
picture Independent:
The group first came to prominence in February 2008, two days before the carefully choreographed elections that brought President Dmitry Medvedev to power. About 12 activists, one of whom was a pregnant woman, entered the Biology Museum and staged an orgy.

Meanwhile, the group's leader and chief ideologist, the bearded Alexei Plutser-Sarno, donned a top hat and unfurled a banner that said: "Fuck for the Teddy Bear Heir!" The slogan played on Mr Medvedev's surname, which is derived from the Russian word for "bear", and poked fun at what the group said were "farcical and pornographic elections" in which Mr Medvedev was to inherit Vladimir Putin's "throne". The group was charged with "disseminating pornography" and so began a life underground, where the core group of activists eschewed mobile phones and moved apartments frequently to evade the authorities.

Soon, the stunts became bigger and harder to ignore. The most notorious Voina action was last June, when several members of the group painted a penis on the Liteiny Bridge in St Petersburg. Evading and fighting off security, the 65-metre high image was completed just before the bridge opened, as it does each evening to let ships pass through. The penis "erected", directly facing the St Petersburg headquarters of the FSB, the KGB's successor. The group called the artwork Dick Captured by KGB...

 Your Neighbours Are About To Invite You To Wii Sex Parties
Kotaku:
You’ve bowled. You’ve gotten fit. And now you can use your Nintendo Wii console to throw a swinger’s party.

Nintendo’s amazing machine is getting a new game called We Dare, a game for those in need of more action. We Dare enlists a group of merely good friends to become a group of friends who enjoy the benefits of spanking and kissing each other — when they aren’t stripping for each other.

We Dare is an extraordinary and real (!) Wii game from French game publisher Ubisoft. We thought it was too sexy to be true, until we found, that, yes, Ubi is really going to sell what it calls a “Sexy Party Game”...

 Men Are Less Upset if a Partner Cheats With Another Woman
NY Times:
How often it happened and with how many people was immaterial, according to the study. What mattered was with whom. Men’s likelihood of continuing to date a girlfriend if she had been unfaithful with a woman was 50 percent, on average. But if she had cheated on him with another man, that likelihood plummeted to 22 percent. Meanwhile, a woman was slightly more likely to stick with a man if he’d cheated on her with another woman: her likelihood of standing by her man was 28 percent, and only 21 percent if he had had homosexual sex. Ms. Confer said that because men’s paternity is threatened by a heterosexual affair, they’re more likely to object to such transgressions...
