While doing some, ahem, research for a Valentine's Day column, I stumbled upon a website called Lustability.
When a man stumbles upon a website called Lustability, he really has no choice but to open it. Failure to do so could result in everything from a lifetime of regrets to a sprained libido. Really, it can be quite horrible.
As it turned out, Lustability was more interesting than lusty. One article contained 85 sex-related facts on a wide variety of subjects.
Given the constraints of space and taste, and the number of 5-year-olds who, according to their unhappy parents, read this column whenever the topic is adult, I have winnowed down the list to the following.
>>Telling a convincing lie to someone is much more difficult when you find them sexually attractive.
>>During sexual intercourse, the inner nose also swells.
>>Fifteen percent of adults have had sexual intercourse at work. (Yet another reason not to use the copy machine.)
>>Women who read romance novels have a tendency to have twice as many lovers as those who don't.
>>Almost a third of all women over 80 still have sex with their spouse or boyfriend.
>>While 41 percent of men would like to have sex more frequently, only 29 percent of women share this urge.
>>There's a direct link between how often a man has sex and his life expectancy.
>>Greek couples have the most sex (138 times a year) while Japanese couples have the least (45 times).
>>Seventy five percent of Japanese women own a vibrator, while the worldwide average is 47 percent.
>>Sex can relieve a headache by releasing tension, which restricts blood vessels in the brain. (So if she says she has a headache …)
>>Forty-four percent of women find it impossible to enjoy sex with a man who is not their intellectual equal, but just 31 percent of men share this problem. (Sorry, the 31 percent seems way high.)
>>The majority of women prefer to have sex in the dark.
>>More than half of all cheating wives choose married men as their lovers.
>>Sneezes, along with orgasms, are the only physiological responses that cannot be voluntarily stopped once they have started. (Was it good for you? Gesundheit.)
