 Sex Facts Part One

  • Baysters aren't just for turkeys! The first artificial insemination occurred in 1781 to enable a man with a malformed penis -- but fertile semen -- to have children. The first artificial insemination by a donor was in 1884. The doctor of a rich but infertile Englishman collected semen from a medical student. Then the doctor helped his sterile friend chloroform his wife and inseminate her. The unwitting participant in this seminal event didn't discover her role in history until years later, when another classmate "leaked" the news.
  • Getting Even. To get back at an interloping male, in several African tribes, the poisoned penis is considered the ideal tool for revenge. Cuckolds of the Zande tribe first prepare a poison and its antidote. They ingest the anti-poison pill, then smear the fiendish stuff on their penis. Next they have sex with their wives. (Softhearted husbands slip their wives the antidote, too.) When the backdoor man enters into the unfaithful lady, it burns with a painful sensation, rots and eventually gives the owner a terminal disease. The Ngoni and Zulu use a potion that does not kill-their, punishing poison merely causes the muscles to atrophy, clots the veins, painfully swells the testes and causes impotence.
  • When you've got em...Ancient Romans and Jews used to swear oaths by placing their hands on each other's testicles. It's no coincidence that the word "testicle" is a diminutive form of testis-Old Latin for "witness." Latins obviously figured that the little fellas were evidence of -- or witness to -- a guy's virility. Think about that if you're called for jury duty!
  • When in Rome...Some Australian bushmen undergo a bizarre penis-mutilation ritual whereby the cockheads are split in half. Researchers were baffled by this until they realized that the tribesmen were simply attempting to acquire genitals more closely resembling those of one of their totem animals. The Aussie natives have great admiration for the male kangaroo, a rather silly-looking beast which sports a bifurcated, or forked penis.
  • An increasing number of men are committing suicide even though they appear to have much better mental health than women
  • Young men who have sex with older women have issues with their self-esteem
  • According to a study published in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior, about 75 percent of people with panic disorder (panic attacks) and about 33 percent of people with social phobia (excessive shyness) also have sexual problems. Among people who suffer from panic attacks, 36 percent of men and 50 percent of women also have sexual aversion -- a strong desire not to have sex. Among men with social phobia, premature ejaculation is the most common sexual problem. continued
  • Couple separate over circumcision issue and the father has filed a "protection-from abuse" order hoping to spare his son.
  • Men or their sperm not needed to impregnate women...the end is near?
  • Male contraception is coming by 2005
  • Medical breakthrough guarantees the sex of your child
  • Risk of HIV from oral sex higher than previously thought
  • Home fertility test for men coming soon
  • Sex and depression don't mix. The good news is that there are at least 10 different antidepressants available to improve your mood and restore your joy for life. The bad news is that every single one of them can dim your libido, with an average rate of sexual dysfunction at a whopping 37 percent. A new study, the largest of its kind, finds that the antidepressant with the lowest rate for sexual dysfunction is buproprion -- at 22 percent for buproprion IR and 25 percent for buproprion SR. Next comes nefazodone at 28 percent. On the opposite side of the spectrum lay paroxetine at 43 percent, mirtazapine at 41 percent and fluoxetine (Prozac) with a 37 percent rate of sexual dysfunction. The reason buproprion and nefazodone cause less dysfunction is because they bind to a different receptor site in the brain.

Sex Facts Part Two

  • If at first.. The penis and the vagina spend their first 8 to 12 weeks pretty much undifferentiated. The penis begins life the same way the vagina does: as a tiny hump and groove on the two-week-old embryo. By 12 to 16 weeks of pregnancy, either the groove, which develops into a vagina or the hump, which develops into the penis, has taken over. In the male, the groove drops down and becomes the scrotum. In the female, the hump ends up as the clitoris. In this case, the more things change the more they no longer remain the same.
  • Boys will be boys. Sonograms have proven that males can have erections while still in the womb
  • Like fine wine? Older men need more arousal in order to obtain erections. A kid who got hard every time they handed out a stiff sentence on "Dragnet" may grow up to be a senior citizen requiring several minutes and intensive physical cajolery. One survey found that men aged 48 to 65 took five times as long to get it up as men under 30. This is because the penis ages and the blood vessels harden. The testicles shrink and lose some firmness. The prostate gland, which often contracts pleasurably during orgasm, may become enlarged and its contractions weaker.
  • Shoot or dribble? Though it may feel as though they've just exploded, nearly three quarters of all men are "dribblers" they can ejaculate their sperm only a short distance, usually under six inches.
  • Kant means won't. Immanuel Kant, the famous philosopher who fathered the theory that all knowledge originates in experience (known as empiricism), died a virgin at the age of 80.
  • 75% of Americans, and most of the world population, are chronically dehydrated. In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak that it is often mistaken for hunger. Even MILD dehydration will slow down one's metabolism as much as 3%. One glass of water shuts down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of dieters. Lack of water is the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue. Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers. A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on the computer screen or on a printed page. Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of breast cancer by 79%, and one is 50% less likely to develop bladder cancer.
  • Vitamin C is one of those cheap, readily available anti-oxidantsthat should be taken regularly throughout your life. It is a tried and proven natural anti-viral and anti-bacterial remedy. This vitamin used in doses of 1000 mg or more is very effective for general cleansing of the blood stream (being an anti-oxidant).
  • Although most Americans didn't learn about AIDS before the 1980s, scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory say that the disease probably originated much earlier. Using a new statistical method and a complicated computer, the scientists traced the origin of HIV to around 1930. The scientists used genetic mutations of HIV to form a family tree for the virus, with each branch showing a change in HIV. The earliest known case of the virus was found in a 1959 blood sample from the former Belgian Congo.
  • Amazing as it may seem, Japanese women didn't have access to the modern birth control pill until 1999. After Viagra was quickly approved for sale in the country, the last United Nations member country to legalize the Pill finally succumbed to pressure from health advocates. Until that point, the only Pill that was available was a high-dose pill, and it could only be prescribed for regulating menstruation (although some women did take advantage of its contraceptive side effects). It remains to be seen how popular the Pill will be in Japan, where condoms are the most common form of birth control.
  • Does my insurance cover this?
  • Although many women now keep vibrators in a special place in their bedrooms, there was a time when they were most frequently seen in doctors' offices. In fact, the first steam-powered massager was introduced in 1869 for use in treating hysteria, and electric models followed soon after. According to "The New Good Vibrations Guide to Sex," hysteria was the most common medical complaint from women of the era, and its symptoms included mental and/or emotional distress. The standard treatment was a visit to the doctor who would induce "hysterical paroxysm" (a.k.a. orgasm). The success of that treatment improved greatly with the introduction of the vibrator.
  • According to the American Journal of Public Health, the average American woman has intercourse 87 times a year (or 1.7 times a week).
  • According to the World Health Organization, more than 114 million acts of sex are performed each day around the world.
  • On average, men release between 2.5 and 6 milliliters of semen, containing 150 and 600 million sperm, in one ejaculation.
  • The risk of pregnancy from one act of unprotected intercourse in the middle of a woman's cycle is about 20 to 30 percent. The numbers go down significantly, though, at other times. Perform the same act at the start or end of the cycle, and the risk of pregnancy drops to only 2 to 4 percent.
  • More than just Breakfast...John Harvey Kellogg is now known as the founder of a huge cereal company, but he initially gained a reputation both as a nutritionist and a sexual advisor. According to The New Male Sexuality, Kellogg thought sex was the ultimate abomination and remained chaste even in marriage. He was also a huge foe of masturbation. He thought self-stimulation would lead to leprosy, tuberculosis, heart disease, epilepsy, dimness of vision, insanity, idiocy and death. He also warned it would bring out bashfulness in some people, unnatural boldness in others, a fondness for spicy foods, round shoulders and acne. Kellogg created a number of foods designed to promote health and decrease interest in sex....You might have heard of one of them - it's called Kellogg's Corn Flakes.

More Sex Facts!

  • It's hard getting up in the morning.
  • Most men under 40 wake up with an erection. The typical man in his mid-40s has a morning erection 3 to 4 times a week.
  • No wonder we die first! When a man climaxes, his heartbeat is jacked up to an average of 180 beats per minute, his breath rate increases to 40 per minute and his systolic blood pressure leaps to 100, The muscles at the base of his penis contract rhythmically (some say to the beat of James Brown's "Sex Machine") at .8 second intervals, usually three to seven times. The average male orgasm lasts for fewer than 10 seconds.
  • Angle of the dangle. Every erect penis sticks up at an angle-usually slightly above horizontal. In youth, the angle is higher. About 10 percent of all males carry the erect penis tightly set against the belly. In 70 percent of men, the erection is either horizontal or curved slightly upward. In most men, the erection is a fairly linear affair.
  • Sometimes they are real! In 1999, a Florida phone sex operator won a workers' compensation settlement after she said she was injured by regularly masturbating as part of her job. The unnamed 40-year-old employee of Fort Lauderdale's CFP Enterprises Inc. said she developed carpal tunnel syndrome in both hands from masturbating up to seven times a day while speaking with callers. The woman used one hand to answer the telephone and the other to note customers' names and fetishes and to give herself an orgasm during the verbal exchanges. The amount of the settlement was not disclosed.
  • A man's man! A 1991 letter to the journal Medical Aspects of Human Sexuality told the gruesome story of a machine-shop worker injury. The man made a regular practice of masturbating by holding his penis against the drive belt of a piece of machinery. One day he leaned too close to the belt and caught his scrotum between the pulley-wheel and the drive belt. His scrotum tore and he lost one of his testicles; but he calmly stapled his scrotum back together and resumed work. He waited three days before finally visiting a doctor, by which time he was suffering from fever, swelling and pain from a secondary infection.

Down for the count. If a man has several ejaculations in one day, the first one will have the most sperm in it, and the number of sperm-per-ejaculation will go down with each incident.
