Dr. Sandra Leiblum has done some research on PSAS, or Persistent Sexual Arousal Syndrome. Some women with this condition can have up to 200 orgasms a day. I did the math and found that’s about the equivalent of an orgasm every three and a half minutes. Can you imagine??
I took a biology class this summer that was about pregnancy, and it covered everything from having sex to giving birth. It was really interesting, but one of the controversial subjects covered was the exact moment when the fetus becomes a living being.
The other day I noted to my roommate about how the rate of STIs in senior citizens has more than doubled in the past 10 years. She immediately shouted out “My grandmother can’t be having sex! You’ve got to be wrong!” Researchers of a recent study published in Sexually Transmitted Infections believe that the high divorce rate and the ease of finding sexual partners on the internet may be partly to blame.
There’s quite a buzz circulating about these new spray-on condoms. German inventor Jan Vinzenz Krause has created a condom that’s made out of liquid latex.

A plastic surgeon in Los Angeles has developed a type of surgery that he claims enhances a woman’s G-spot. Known as the G-Shot, it is a collagen injection designed to swell up the G-spot, which is supposed to create more pleasure during sexual activity.

Last month, a large group of gays and lesbians in Moscow rallied together waving rainbow flags in defiance of Russia’s ban on gay pride events. Right-winged activists were there to protest, throwing eggs and even beating them. The gay activists also carried a massive flag in front of Moscow mayor Yury Luzhkov’s office building.
Philip Weiss was a guest on The Colbert Report Monday talking about his article “The Affairs of Men” which was featured in New York Magazine. While doing his research for the piece, he traveled to Bloomington to talk to researchers here at the Kinsey Institute.
A man named Sigurdur Hjartarson in Iceland has opened up a museum entirely dedicated to penises everywhere! It contains the reproductive organs of over NINETY different species, with a total of 261 penises in all. That’s a lot of penis.
British artist Lucian Freud (grandson of Sigmund Freud) has just sold one of his paintings for over $33 million dollars! Holy cow, that’s a lot of money! The artwork, called “Benefits Supervisor Sleeping,” was originally painted 13 years ago in 1995, but has just been sold at a New York auction.
