Whats your biggest sex organ? Yeah, not that. Its between your ears, not your thighs. Sure you feel an orgasm between your legs, but those sensations are actually due to chemical changes in a part of your brain called the limbic system. As you build toward an orgasm, the limbic system releases more and more of a chemical called dopamine. Orgasm provides the biggest blast of dopamine legally available to humans, resulting in highs equivalent to a heroin rush. But if your brain has been feeling a bit left out lately, dont worry, you CAN kick-start dopamine production. Try talking to your partner about your sexual fantasies, or adding props to your sex play. You can also bring erotic literature or pornographic videos into the bedroom. Get your brain in on the action and get ready for your hottest sex yet!More »

A woman's cycle is responsible for more than you realize. Check out this video to learn more about her cycle, her sex, and the relationship between the two.

Every woman's libido is different, but there are a few days each month when she's biologically prone to crave sex! Simply put, a woman is most passionate while she's ovulating and immediately afterwards. Ovulation is the time of the month when an egg arrives in the uterus to be fertilized. At this point, she releases extra hormones that make her more in tune with her senses-especially smell and touch! Every woman has a slightly different cycle length, ranging from 20 to 60 days, although a typical cycle is about 28 days. Generally, a woman is ovulating (and craving sex!) about 14 to 16 days before the start of her period. Women who take hormonal birth control do not ovulate, and therefore experience fairly steady levels of desire throughout the month. It's vital to remember that although women are hottest during ovulation; this is also when they are most fertile. (See Knocked Up for proof.) So don't let excitement overwhelm good judgment-remember to use protection!More »

Think you know everything there is to know about the male mind? These stats may shock you! Interestingly, despite cultural taboos about sexual experimentation between men, more men engage in homosexual acts than women do. And you've heard that men think about sex every seven seconds, right? That's one of those often cited, rarely sourced stats that is just not true. In fact, almost 50 percent of men claim they don't even think about sex every day, citing instead, thoughts that creep up a few times a week. Here's another interesting tidbit. Despite most men's penis proclamations, the average length is about 5.08 inches. A final fact about men that may or may not surprise most women: The average sex session lasts from just three to seven minutes. These surprising stats prove that perhaps there's more to the mystery of men than we thought!More »

Sex. What are men and women really looking for? Here are some expert insightsThe word sex can bring powerful images to mind. But while your first thought might be of a scantily-clad model or George Clooney, human sexuality runs far deeper than the superficial appreciation of beauty. Evolutionary psychology can provide real insight into how both men and women approach sex. While our conscious desire for sex seems to be governed by our physical attraction to others, our emotions, and our fears, we all have a fundamental instinct to reproduce that silently influences what we find attractive, how we feel, and what we fear. Each genders approach to sex is influenced by the relative scarcity of their reproductive materials. While males have an almost limitless number of sperm, females have relatively few eggs, so women typically put a higher price on their eggs. Given this, there are unique strategies that males and females employ to maximize their reproductive fitness. For example, men are almost invariably more promiscuous than women. This is because the most reproductively fit man wants to get as many females pregnant as possible. For the same reason, men are instinctively attracted to traits that indicate health and fertility like glossy hair, shiny eyes, and a classic hourglass figure. In fact, in many wildly different cultures the ideal female body is the same one where the waist is 71% of the size of the hips. Women have a different evolutionary imperative. The physical toll of childbearing combined with the relative scarcity of eggs elevates the survival of each child to paramount importance. A woman therefore wants a mate who will invest in her and in their child, and who can provide for the family. The type of man that a woman is drawn to changes depending on how likely she is to reproduce. When ovulating, women tend to be more attracted to solid types, capable of caring for offspring, but when women arent ovulating, they go for more good-looking men with less concern about character. Theres also an evolutionary basis for common relationship fears. A man naturally fears cuckolding, which is when his wife bears someone elses child, as this prevents him from reproducing and redirects his resources to someone elses progeny. Women commonly fear that their mate might leave, a fear related to the evolutionary reality that this would undermine future procreation and impair their childrens chances of success. Also, surprisingly, many activities like physical fighting may be indirect facets of sexual behavior: males fight other males to become dominant and dominant males get the chicks. Sex is a fascinating topic. The attractions and emotions which guide us in our sexual choices are often our bodys way of communicating a basic evolutionary instinct. So, the next time you feel attracted to a co-worker ask yourself what your body is really saying. If you are interested in learning more about this topic, check out other videos and sources on this subject.More »

Think you're a vagina expert? Well here are five facts you've never heard before! Her hot spots have something very interesting in common with a shark! Vaginal lubricant is a melting pot of ingredients, from lactic acid to squalene, an ingredient also found in sharks' livers! But her natural lubrication isn't just for getting hot and heavy! Sex leaves women mentally alert because it takes them between 15 to 30 minutes to return to a pre-aroused state, while guys come down immediately. And how long does that sex take? According to studies, the average experience is 2 minutes and 50 seconds. Yet women generously rated these same sessions as "feeling" like 5 minutes and 30 seconds...so there's hope for the quickie!More »

Although many men wish they had a bigger member, some have penises that are just too big to pleaseOr are they? When a mans penis causes his partner pain, sex stops being fun and can start feeling awful! But heres good news: when properly aroused and penetrated gradually, a womans vagina can lengthen up to 200 percent from its un-aroused 3 inches. For excellent intercourse, ensure that the woman is fully aroused before penetration. Try using toys, like a vibrator, and add lots of water-based lubricant. When its time to move to intercourse, avoid positions that allow for very deep penetration, like rear-entry. Instead, aim for positions where thrusting is gentle, like the side-by-side or the spooning positions. Or give her control of depth by having sex in the woman-on-top position. Add these tricks to your routine, and in no time, too big, will become just right!More »

Relax, guys. No matter how small you feel, statistics show that over 85 percent of ladies are satisfied with their partner's penis. Still not convinced that your member measures up? There are ways to ensure that your penis pushes her buttons. Before you penetrate, focus on foreplay, making her pleasure your utmost priority. If you wait until she's fully stimulated to enter her, she probably won't know-or care-what size you are! There are a few sexual positions can help you make the most of every inch. Start with that tried and true favorite, rear-entry. Or try the "rabbit ears" position. Have her lie on her back and bring her knees to her ears. She should hold her knees there as you penetrate her. Another good bet is the snake, a position where she lies face down with her legs closed. Drape your bent knees on either side of her body and enter from behind. Give these tips a try and watch your partner become a member of the (happily satisfied) majority!More »

Micropenis is not a joke; it's a true medical condition that affects men more often than you'd think. Watch this video for details on micropenis.

Many men wish for a bigger penis, but most don't realize how their member actually measures up against other guys. Study after study shows that the average penis measures between 5 and 6 inches long when erect, while even more studies prove that women feel size has little to do with a man's sexual prowess. Despite these statistics, almost half of men suffer from a condition called small-penis syndrome, which is ongoing worry that the penis is diminutive, despite it being normally sized. Small-penis syndrome, which is psychological, is different than the medical condition known as "micropenis," whereby the erect penis is less than 2.75 inches long. Micropenis occurs infrequently, but when it does happen, it is often diagnosed in infancy. The condition can often be improved with growth hormones when diagnosed. The bottom line is that most penises please just fine. If you're worried about micropenis, however, speak to a doctor about your concerns!More »

The clitoris is between the top of the inner vaginal lips, or inner labia. The inner labia also serve as a hood to protect the clitoris in much the same manner that foreskin covers the penis. Pull the hood back, and you can see that the clitoris is about the size of a pencil eraser. Rich with responsive nerves, the clitoris becomes erectjust as a penis doeswhen a woman is aroused. Most women like constant, repetitive clitoral stimulation. But rubbing the clitoris directly is often too intense! Try moving your fingers over the hood in a circular fashion, or, if youre using oral stimulation, long, slow licks with the flat part of your tongue. Gentle suction can also have excellent results. If you really want to get creative, try tracing the letters of the alphabet with either fingers or tongue. Finding the right area of contact and amount of pressure might take some time, but if youre trying to turn candlelight into fireworks, its well worth it.More »

All but five percent of us do it, and yet, twenty-five percent of us are ashamed of it! Its sexual fantasy, and its playing in a mind near you. Are sexual fantasies a habit of unsatisfied people? No! Today, psychologists recognize that fantasy is healthy. People who fantasize have sex more often and engage in a wider variety of positions than those who dont. In fact, fantasy is so normal that its now considered pathological not to fantasize! Most of us fantasize about vanilla things, such as sex with a current or past partner. But if your fantasies are a bit more risquthats natural, too. Psychologists have identified three other types of fantasy. One type, novel imagery, includes unconventional settings or questionable partners, like a stranger. Another fantasy involves scenes of sexual irresistibilitythe animal magnetism fantasy. And a final category involves dominance and submission.Whatever you imagine, dream on. Youre the director and the movie is private!More »

Remember diagramming sentences in grammar school? It turns out you can diagram sex in the same way! Well...maybe not exactly the same, but sex does have four very distinct stages! First comes desire, which is the basic wish for sex. It happens before any physical signs occur in your body. Desire can arise without the remaining three stages. This happens when you have a racy thought at the office, but go back to work. Next is arousal, where blood flows to the genitals, causing a man's penis to stiffen and a woman's vagina to swell. Orgasm, the third stage, occurs when a series of contractions force the congested blood out of the genitals and back into circulation. The sexual cycle finishes with resolution, when heart rate and blood pressure return to normal, and the sexual organs go back to an un-aroused state. We're sure you'll agree that this diagram is more fun than the ones you did in school!More »
