10 Things You Probably Didn't Know About Sex

I love #2 since it slams down that whole Catholic "sex just for pro-creation" bull we learned in Catholic school. I mean nobody really believes it but hey, you know the Vatican and change. Also watch out for those bats guys! They might be friendlier than you think! Here's a link to the original site.

1. The typical lovemaking session lasts around 15 minutes: roughly 10 to 12 minutes of foreplay and around 3 to 5 minutes of intercourse.

2. Humans aren't the only horny members of the animal kingdom doing it just for fun. Dolphins and a type of chimpanzee called the bonobo have also been observed engaging in sexual activity when they are not in their natural reproductive cycles.

3. While Viagra has made erectile dysfunction (affecting 10 to 12 percent of men) a household phrase, the opposite problem -- premature ejaculation -- is more common (affecting 24 to 27 percent of men). The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is currently reviewing a drug called dapoxetine as a cure for this problem.

4. Crank up that thermostat... orgasms may be more intense in warmer conditions. The degree of vasocongestion, reddening or darkeing of the skin known as the "sex flush," is both more common in warmer temperatures and an indication of how intense an orgasm may be.

5. If a woman experiences orgasm during sex, she is more likely to become pregnant, since orgasmic spasms in pelvic muscles help move sperm up the vaginal canal to the uterus.

6. Homosexuality is not unique to humans. Many species have been observed engaging in homosexual activity, and in fact male bats have the highest rate of homosexuality of all mammals.

7. On any given day 400,000,000 people around the world -- 1 in 17 of us -- will have sexual intercourse. Broken down further, 4,000 people are having sex at any given time.

8. Sex cures headaches. Endorphins released into our bloodstream when we have sex not only give us pleasure but also act as painkillers. Useful information to whip out the next time your partner uses a headache as a reason to say no.

9. Many elderly can and do have frequent sex. At age 70, 73% of males are still potent, and 30% of women 80 or older have still have sex.

10. 70% of women would rather eat choclate than have sex.

Everything But The Kitchen Sink!!

Watch this video and have a howl. It's a band from Norway called Hurra Torpedo covering Bonnie Tyler's Total Eclipse Of The Heart. Using and old fridge as a bass drum is pure genius!! Love the stove crashing!

P.S. Thanks to Amber & Leo for mentioning this post on Net@Nite (link here or on the side). Now the rest of the TWiT Army can marvel at the genius that is Hurra Torpedo. Also check out my new song "It's Not Enough" at Stage.FM .

Wow, I've Been Lazy!!!

I haven't posted in ages. Just pure laziness, I'll admit. I've passed my night class mid-term in the mean time and I'm planning to take the next course on internet programming, which scares me since I have no coding experience at all. The closest I've come is cut and pasting with HTML code but not actual manual coding, so who knows. It's going to be two nights a week so it will be coming fast and hard. Hopefully it all sticks.

I also picked up a external hard drive finally to back up my computer. Considering how much music and pictures I have with out a proper back up, I was playing with fire. Nowadays, your gambling if you don't have a second copy of your important computer data, because it's not a matter of if your hard drive fails, but when. A Western Digital 500GB My Book with Firewire(very important to me since most now just have USB) and USB for $250 at Costco is a steal, so no excuse to be safe than sorry.

I'll try be more regular in my posting. To all you married men I'll leave you this...

Thankfully I don't need a subscription...I think. Cheers!
