One study revealed that sexual intercourse (sorry no self-help here) could improve a woman’s memory and verbal recognition!
A research on the inverse relationship between lifelong premature ejaculation and obesity hypothesized that because overweight men have higher levels of the female sex hormone estradiol, which can inhibit male orgasms, they lasted longer in bed.
Also, being overweight reduces your serotonin a.k.a the happy hormone levels, which could also be the reason for the delay in orgasms.
Meanwhile, overweight men and women are 25 percent more likely to suffer from mood disorders, like depression, than the rest of the population.
A team of neurologists found that sexual activity can lead to “partial or complete relief” of head pain in some migraines or headaches.
The study, from the University of Munster, Germany, suggests that instead of using a sore head as an excuse to refuse sex, making love can be more effective than taking painkillers.
Additionally, a group of scientists conducted a study using a pool of healthy young, sexually active Italian women with no known sexual disorders. The study was to see if there’s a tie between daily apple intake and sexual function.
The study found that women who eat more than one apple a day, (no apple juice, you don’t drink calories) had an increase in natural lubrication and more intense orgasms.
Furthermore, psychologists at the University of Texas studied women at different stages of their menstrual cycle. They found that women look and feel more attractive when they are at their most fertile.
But it’s not because women naturally develop a magical glow during this time but rather that ovulating women made more effort to look attractive.
Women show more skin, pay more attention to makeup and wear tighter clothes during ovulation.
It’s biology at work. If you’ve ever used a hormone tracking app, you will notice some pretty spot-on predictions during ovulation about your physical appearance.
So it’s no surprise that men find women more attractive at this stage, it’s natural for women, men just can’t help themselves.
In a study in the United Kingdom (U.K) on fake orgasms, researchers made an interesting discovery – when they gave the couples socks to wear. About 80% of the couples were able to achieve orgasm compared with 50 percent previously in this staged environment.
The reasoning behind this is that warm feet make women feel protected (no pun intended) in bed.
When the woman felt more protected orgasms came faster and better. Socks aren’t exactly a turn on though, so if you insist on wearing them, I will make some effort with the choice of feet warmers.
