A question has been nagging away at the back of my mind for a long time. Ever since I first started writing for this blog, hunting out the latest intriguing sex news for you. That question is this: why do we need scientific studies to give us excuses to have more sex?
Orgasms: you'd think you couldn't get better than that, wouldn't you? But according to scientists, it's possible to have something called a 'super orgasm.' What exactly are these magical things, and how can you go about achieving something so powerful it sounds like it would cause an actual earthquake? Let's find out.
It's broadly accepted, in much of the mainstream media, that when it comes to shagging you can never have too much of a good thing. So initial reports this week that people are having less sex than we did 20 years ago might give you cause for alarm. Don't worry, though, I am here to calm your worried, potentially sex-starved mind.
This could be a really short blog post. I mean, how long does it take to type 'yes please I would like a sex break at work'? Three seconds. There. But there's a bit more to it than that – let's examine this suggestion, which came from a Swedish politician, and how it could benefit you.
At the moment, I cannot get enough of sex tech. Whether that's sexy robots who are coming to shag us all (it's a thing – really) or bluetooth-enabled sex toys that put a serious buzz into your long-distance boning. Every year that goes by, sex gets more interesting – we learn more about the ways in which different people get pleasure, and we develop shiny new toys to make the most of all the cool things our bodies can do.
And sometimes we make drones with dildos attached.
Where did you leave your car keys? When is your mother-in-law's birthday? How long ago did you put the bins out? My memory is rubbish – all the tiny details like these that should help me get through life seem to vanish without a trace. Which is why I was delighted to see this week a study that suggests sex could help improve your memory.
Friends, sex toy fans, countrymen: I'm delighted to be back at the Sex Toys blog. After a brief hiatus, I'm returning to bring you your fix of great sex toy deals, weird sex news, and gossip you won't find elsewhere. So arm yourself with a giant bottle of lube and a healthy dollop of curiosity, and let's get stuck in to some of the sex news that happened while this blog was on a break.
