Sex, Sex, And More Sex

Sex is an activity that most people enjoy and seek out on a regular basis. In fact, sex often works as the best motivator of all. Sex sells. Sex motivates. Sex is, well, sexy. But what do we really know about sex? In a recent article on, readers learn 21 interesting facts about sex. Here is the list from that article:

Fact 1: 12 weeks of yoga can improve arousal, orgasm, and overall sexual satisfaction.

Fact 2: A female chimpanzee in a fit of passion has the strength of six men.

Fact 3: The person on top is likely to have the better orgasm.

Fact 4: Agalmatophilia is a sexual attraction to statues or mannequins.

Fact 5: The female ferret will die if she does not have sex for a year.

Fact 6: 73 percent of women admit having at least one one-night stand.

Fact 7: The average vagina is three to four inches long but can expand by 200 percent when sexually aroused.

Fact 8: The average speed of ejaculation during a male orgasm is 28 miles per hour.

Fact 9: 46-year-old Kim Ramsey experiences 100 orgasms a day.

Fact 10: 87 percent of Greeks say they have sex once a week.

Fact 11: The proteins in sperm give it anti-wrinkle properties when rubbed into the skin.

Fact 12: The most common cause of penile rupture is vigorous masturbation.

Fact 13: Before sex, the lower part of a woman’s vagina narrows for a better grip on his penis.

Fact 14: In Australia, 22 percent of women have had sex with someone out of sympathy.

Fact 15: You burn 200 calories during 30 minutes of sex.

Fact 16: Only 15 percent of men have a penis longer than 7 inches.

Fact 17: After fingers and vibrators, candles are the phallic objects used most often by female masturbators.

Fact 18: Premature ejaculation is the most common form of sexual dysfunction in younger men.

Fact 19: 12 percent of women use their cell phones after sex.

Fact 20: The average female orgasm lasts 20 seconds.

Fact 21: About 1 percent of females are able to achieve orgasm solely through breast stimulation.

So, is your mind blown? Some of this stuff is sex info that we hear about often. For instance, Facts 12, 15, 18, and 20 seem to those that we know at least generally if not specifically. Fact 20 interests men and women alike. Men wonder at the duration of the orgasm while women revel in the enjoyment. Other facts seem just weird like Facts 4, 9, and 10, yet their info still grabs the reader’s attention.

Some of the more interesting facts are Facts 2 and 5. The sex facts about the female ferret and female chimp showed that it is not just humans who find sex inspiring. Other interesting facts are Facts 1, 3, and 21. Knowing just how to make an orgasm more enjoyable through position or yoga is something that most people will want to know more about.

All in all, these 21 facts about sex certainly pack a punch. Not only are they interesting, but they are also informative. Of course, the researcher in me wants to know the science behind each of these facts, but the interested reader thinks that this is just a fun read. In either case, Guyism certainly knows how to catch a reader’s attention.
