15 weird sex facts we bet you didn't know

15 weird sex facts we bet you didn't know


Written by Katie Byrne


Because sharing is caring, people, sharing is caring...

 

#1 The average person spends over 20,000 minutes kissing throughout their lifetime (20,160, to be precise). 

#2 Dolphins are the only other species that have sex for pleasure.  

#3 A survey conducted by Intel found that the average woman would rather give up sex for a fortnight rather than the Internet. Because who can live without emails and Instagram filters for that long...? Plus, according to a survey by Retrevo.com, over 1/3 of people check Facebook straight after sex. We just hope they don't status update!

FIVE THINGS THAT WILL HAPPEN IN YOUR FIRST FORTNIGHT OF MARRIAGE

#4 A couple of historic facts for you: the vibrator was first invented in the 19th century, when it was used as a cure for female 'hysteria'. Plus, the Ancient Egyptians used dried crocodile as a contraceptive. (We imagine the sight of it was enough to put people off sex, hence the contraceptive status...)

#5 Low blood sugar levels can seriously affect your desire to have sex. The lower they are, the less likely you'll be to want to hop into bed - and the grouchiness and irritability that comes with it probably means your partner won't be that keen either! 

#6 Okay, so this is mind-blowing: the average man produces enough sperm over a two-week period to impregnate every fertile woman on the planet. 

#7 Half an hour of sex can burn up to 200 calories. Speaking of the health benefits, a study by the University of California Los Angeles has found that men who wait until after the age of 25 to marry have stronger skeletons than those who don't. #Random

NEW STUDY REVEALS SURPRISING DNA DISCOVERY ABOUT COUPLES

#8 Over a quarter (28%) of the population of Australia has taken part in a threesome. Strewth.

#9 Five per cent of the population have sex once a day - whilst a fifth have sex 3-4 times a day. We're not sure about the others!

#10 Animal fact: if a female ferret doesn't find a mate while she's on heat, she can die. Yes, really! If she doesn't find a partner, her body will produce high levels of estrogen, which leads to aplastic anemia - which kills ferrets.

#11 The whole 'thing' about men liking big bums actually has truth behind it: it submliminally indicates higher fertility levels.

SEVEN THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT HAVING SEX WHILE ON YOUR PERIOD

#12 The female orgasm is a great cure for pain - so that 'I've got a headache!' excuse doesn't really work. Also, cuddling releases natural painkillers, whilst hand-holding can reduce stress.

#13 According to studies, it's more difficult to lie to someone you have a crush on than someone you don't. 

#14 Wolves, swans and albatrosses mate for life - and even termites only mate with one partner! 

#15 In-love couples synchronize their heartbeats, without even realising it. Amazing, don't you think?
