10 Scientific Studies That Present VERY Surprising Facts About Sex!


Every day we see another “interesting” research study on human sexuality on the Internet that tell us nothing more than “size doesn’t matter!!!” or “lesbians have more orgasms than heterosexual women!!” Well, these are true, but we know you need more. Here are 10 studies that will surprise you more than these age-old cliches!

1. Watching a romantic movie with your partner doesn’t really put you in the mood.


A horror movie, on the other hand, would be much more effective. According to research, “negative emotions (fear, anxiety, distress) tend to be associated with stronger arousal.”

2. You’re more likely to cheat if your age ends in “9.”


Experts think that when they’re 19, 29, 39, 49, people are more likely to engage in “new” activities because of the excitement of the future and the tiredness of the past.

3. If you’ve read Fifty Shades of Grey and your sexual desire faded away afterwards, you’re not alone.


Most people may assume that reading such a book would put them in the mood, but research suggests otherwise. It actually reduces sexual desire.

4. Men are more attracted to women’s bodies and breasts during the winter months.


"Because women tend to wear sexier and more revealing clothes in the summer months and bundle up in the winter, the standard of bodily comparison is much higher when it is warmer outside. Think of it this way: because everyone is showing a lot of skin during summer, the bar for what qualifies as "hot" is set higher; in the winter, skin is rarely seen, so it becomes more novel and arousing to look at" researchers suggest.

5. Womens’ taste in men can change during menstruation.


Studies have shown that women tend to be more attracted to more “masculine” men during their periods.

6. The number of people you have sex within the last 12 months determines how passionate you will be during sex.


According to a study published in the Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience magazine, people who had sex with no more than 1 person in the last 12 months were found to be less passionate than people who had sex with at least two different people in the same period.

7. In the gym, you’re more likely to get laid.


According to research, the physiological stimuli experienced in the gym as a result of exercise can not be completely distinguished from the sexual stimuli in our brains. So, the possibility of having sex with someone you meet in the gym is actually considerably high.

8. What you do after sex affects your sexual performance.


Research shows that after-sex affection boosts sexual and relationship satisfaction. There it is, another reason to cuddle even if you don’t normally enjoy it.

9. Alcohol does really make people seem more attractive to us.


What's more is that while we are drunk, we perceive ourselves as more attractive and act more comfortably as a result. (Surprise surprise)

10. Men are more attracted to women in red.


Experts think that the reason for this is that women's body is embroiled in a pink/red tone in the wake of sexual arousal. In fact, another study has revealed that women wear red outfits when they are feeling sexier.
