Survey Shows Americans Wish Their Private Lives Were Kinkier

Long before “50 Shades of Grey” came out and brought kink and fetish awareness to the masses, people have been doing all sorts of non-vanilla acts. EdenFantasys, an online adult store, surveyed 2,000 Americans about their bedroom lives and their fetishes. Their findings revealed that 40% of people consider themselves kinky. Only 49% of respondents say they are into sex toys. Meanwhile, 34% of people said they want to experiment more with toys with their current partner. Role-playing is popular bedroom pastime, with 29% of respondents saying they’re interested in it. Twenty-four percent reported that they want to give it a try with their current partner. Fifty-one percent of those with a specific kink or fetish reported that they need a month or so to bring it up to a new partner. Bondage made 22% of people curious. And surprisingly only 16% of people want to try anal. Out of those questioned, 76% said they are open to trying new kinks. (NY Post)


How Many Partners Has the Average American Had?

SuperDrug conducted a survey of over 2,000 men and women from The U.S. and Europe about their sexual histories. In terms of lying about the amount of previous partners, 67.4% of women said they tell the truth when asked about their number, compared to 58.6% of men. That means that, all things considered, about 1/3 of people lie about this particular question. When it comes to lying about past lovers, men tend to increase the number of sexual partners they’ve actually been with, while women do the opposite and decrease their number. Why the lies? Many women are still scared of being shamed for being sexually active, while men tend to up their count to appear more experienced. Most of the people surveyed said that having relations with more than 14 or 15 people is considered “promiscuous.” So what do people think the idea number of sexual partners to have had is? Both men and women said around seven or eight. Out of the 2,000+ questioned, over 60% of men and women believe that sexual history should be disclosed between right away and four months. About 11% of respondents are on my side of “would not disclose.” (Super Drug)

Capping years of criticism, Purdue Pharma will stop promoting its opioid drugs to doctors

The manufacturer of the powerful painkiller OxyContin announced recently that it will stop promoting its opioid drugs to doctors after years of criticism and mounting lawsuits. Connecticut-based Purdue Pharma informed its employees that it was cutting its sales force in half, leaving about 200 representatives in the U.S., who no longer will visit doctors’ offices to discuss the company’s opioid products. The company is facing dozens of lawsuits from cities across the country prompted in part by reports that revealed Purdue had extensive evidence pointing to illegal trafficking of its pills but in many cases did not share it with local law enforcement agencies or cut off the flow of the drugs. The plaintiffs are seeking to hold the company financially responsible for a raging opioid epidemic. (LA Times)


‘Zombie bots’ are coming for lonely singles on Valentine’s Day

America’s lonely hearts are more likely than ever to catch a virus this Valentine’s Day — on their computer. An especially aggressive robot network of 6 million “zombie bots” will be set loose this Valentines Day, each one with an attractive come-on looking to entice a lovesick victim, according to IBM. But don’t go looking for love in all the wrong in-boxes, warns IBM’s X-Force warns. X-Force is the IBM unit that searches out and tracks down cyber threats. Since January 16th, US email in-boxes have been inundated with 230 million dating-spam messages, according to X-Force. Now, X-Force is predicting a massive uptick in computer come-ons. It attributed the uptick to a notorious botnet called Necurs. While dating-spam scams are as old as e-mail itself, X-Force credited Necurs with upping their plausibility. Here are tips to avoid becoming a victim. Look for:

  • Bad grammar
  • A too-good-to-be-true come-on, like “I must say you are very cute and I would like to know you more!”
  • An e-mail return address differs from the arrival address.

Women can orgasm by working out

Some women apparently get a lot of enjoyment out of exercise — they experience orgasms in the gym. Aptly called the “Coregasm,” it refers to orgasmic release induced by exercise. In fact, exercise-induced orgasms have been recognized in scientific literature for more than 50 years. They were first noted by sexologist Alfred Kinsey in his 1953 book “Sexual Behavior in the Human Female”, which detailed how 5 percent of women he spoke to had experienced one before. Other studies have also backed this up. A 2012 study of 530 women online found that 246 had experienced a “coregasm” before. The Indiana University study also found that they were more likely if a woman was cycling, rope climbing, doing yoga, weight lifting or running. But the most common exercise that led to a toe-curling moment was leg pull-ups. So how exactly does a “coregasm” occur? Basically, a combination of engaging the muscles connected to down there and the endorphin’s released when exercising has some euphoric results. An orgasm occurs when the body cannot take the intense sexual pleasure of blood flow in the genitals anymore. In a woman, the release of sexual tension is accompanied by contractions of the muscles in the vagina. And, if she’s lucky, a woman can experience more than one orgasm if sexual stimulation continues after the first. It isn’t just exercise that can take a woman to heady heights, though. Experts say that about ten percent of women report achieving orgasm during exercise, some women can orgasm purely through nipple stimulation and (rare but true) some people orgasm when they have sneezing fits. And if all this isn’t enough to have you racing to the gym, some “coregasms” can last for a long time with women reportedly feeling contractions for hours after they’ve happened. (The Sun)


Woman reunited with wedding dress 32 years after dry cleaner mix-up

A Facebook post about a 32-year-old wedding dress mixup at an Ohio dry cleaner led to an emotional reunion between a woman and her gown. Ame Bartlebaugh said she visited her grandmother’s house in Willowick to find the wedding dress used by both her mother and her aunt. Bartlebaugh, who hoped to wear the dress at her own wedding in December of next year, opened the package that the dress had been sealed inside by a dry cleaner in 1985 and made a startling discovery — it was the wrong dress. “I am now in search of the owner of this gown. It was dry cleaned in the summer of 1985. It has a hoop skirt that goes underneath and a veil with a flower crown attached,” Bartlebaugh wrote in a Facebook post that included photos of the mystery gown. She said it took less than 24 hours for Facebook users to find the dress’ owner. Brian Havrilla‏ tweeted an emotional video showing his family presenting the dress, which they wrapped, to his mother as a late Christmas gift. (Facebook)
