So then we thought – if our users are interested in sex, what about sex would interest them?

Interesting stuff about sex of course.

So here it is. Interesting stuff about sex. Oh, and we’ve stuck some weird one’s in there as well to spice things up a bit. You’ll never watch a pair of breeding black widow spiders in the same light ever again…

1.) You burn about 200 calories during 30 minutes of active sex.

2.) Sex makes women’s hair shinier and their skin glow because of all the extra oestrogen it causes them to produce.

3.) According to the Durex Global Sex Survey, people normally lose their virginity at 17 years old. In the UK, the average age is 16 1/2.

4.) These days, the Greeks have more sex than any other nationality. They’re followed closely by the Croatians.

5.) American Jonah Falcon has the world’s largest penis at 9.5 inches when flaccid and 13.5 inches when erect.

6.) The average penis size is 3.5 to 3.7 inches when flaccid and between 5.0-5.7 inches when erect.

7.) Whales are the owners of the world’s largest penises. The biggest recorded whale penis was the 8-footer of a killer whale.

8.) The world’s oldest father (Nanu Ram Jogi) recently fathered his 21st child, at the age of 90. He also admits that he is not certain how many children his series of four wives have borne him – but counts at least 12 sons, 9 daughters and 20 grandchildren.

9.) Homosexuality is a common thing everywhere in nature. A pair of male penguins, Roy and Silo from Central Park Zoo, were a ‘couple’ for years, even raising a baby penguin together in 2003.

10.) Women are more likely to orgasm just before or during their period.

11.) Experiencing ‘butterflies of love’ might sound romantic, but in France the phrase ‘papillon d’amour’ means having pubic lice.

12.) In Britain we have on average, 10 sexual partners in our lifetime. The Chinese have the most with 19 and the Vietnamese only get round to having sex with 2 1/2 people.

13.) There are roughly 100 million acts of sexual intercourse each day.

14.) Most turkeys and giraffes are bisexual.

15.) The Ancient Egyptians used dried crocodile dung as a contraceptive as it has spermicidal properties. How did they discover this?

16.) Both men and women can have multiple orgasms. But for men to achieve one, their first orgasm must occur without ejaculation and without losing their erection.

17.) In 2005, a couple broke the world record for the longest unbroken kiss. They did it for an exhausting 31 hours, 30 minutes and 30 seconds.

18.) 25% of couples over 75 still sexually active.

19.) Women who have been to university are more likely to engage in anal sex.

20.) The amount of wet dreams a man is likely to have increases in line with the number of years spent in formal education (which very much includes university I’m sure you’ll be glad to know).

21.) 80% of men living in the USA have been circumcised. Less than 20% in the UK have been.

22.) Besides humans, bonobo chimps and dolphins are the only animals that have sex for pleasure.

23.) Telling a convincing lie to someone is much more difficult when you find them sexually attractive.

24.) What do humans, fish and porpoises have in common? They all have oral sex.

25.) 70% of men refuse sex during their girlfriend’s period.

26.) Apparently on average foreplay lasts 11 to 13 minutes.

27.) Orgasms are a great way to relieve period pains.

28.) 70% of men in relationships always have an orgasm with their partner whilst only 29% of women do.

29.) In Imperial China, eunuchs held many of the top positions. These men kept their genitals in a jar on a high shelf to symbolise their rise to the upper ranks.

30.) A woman has twice as many nerve endings on her clitoris than men have on their whole penis.

31.) Believe it or not, people are on average hornier during periods of their life where they are having more sex.

32.) 94% of men say they masturbate, while 80% of women say they do.

33.) A quarter of penises are slightly bent when erect.

34.) Valentina Vassilyeva holds the record for most children birthed by a single woman. During her life she gave birth to total of 69 children. She had 16 pairs of twins, 7 sets of triplets and 4 sets of quadruplets between 1725 and 1765, in a total of 27 births. Miraculously 67 of the 69 children born survived infancy.

35.) Under half of men think their penis is too small whereas 85% of women are very satisfied with their partner’s penis size.

36.) Weight loss increases the size of a man’s penis. For every 35 pounds of fat lost the fat at the base decreases enough to give them an extra inch.

37.) 92% of women think that skint and sexy is preferable to loaded and ugly.

38.) Given the choice 75% of women would rather sleep with one man in a lifetime as opposed to 25% who would rather sleep with 100 men.

39.) The average amount of time spent kissing for a person in a lifetime is 20,160 minutes.

40.) The black widow spider eats her mate during or after sex. Worse still, the horny eight-legger can consumer as many 20 lovers in a single day.

Seems like a disturbingly logical place to end things…
