A Brief History of Human Sex

http://www.livescience.com Heather Whipps

Birds do it, bees do it, humans since the dawn of time have done it.

But just how much has the act really changed through the millennia and even in past decades? Are humans doing it more? Are we doing it better? Sort of, say scientists. But it’s how people fess up to the truth about their sex lives that has changed the most over the years.

Humans have basically been the same anatomically for about 100,000 years—so what is safe to say is that if we enjoy it now, then so did our cave-dwelling ancestors and everyone else since, experts say.

 

“Just as our bodies tell us what we might like to eat, or when we should go to sleep, they lay down for us our pattern of lust,” says University of Toronto psychologist Edward Shorter. “Sex has always offered pleasure.”

Hard wired

Sexuality has a lot to do with our biological framework, agreed Joann Rodgers, director of media relations and lecturer at Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions.

“People and indeed all animals are hard wired to seek out sex and to continue to do so,” Rodgers said in a recent interview. “I imagine that is evidence that people at least like sex and even if they don’t they engage in it as a biological imperative.”

It is nearly impossible to tell, however, whether people enjoyed sex more 50 years ago or 50,000 years ago, said David Buss, professor of psychology at the University of Texas and author of “The Evolution of Desire: Strategies of Human Mating” (Basic Books, 2003).

There is “no reason to think that we do more now than in the past, although we are certainly more frank about it,” Buss told LiveScience.

Indeed, cultural restraints—rather than anything anatomical—have had the biggest effect on our sexual history, Shorter says.

“To be sure, what people actually experience is always a mixture of biological and social conditioning: Desire surges from the body, the mind interprets what society will accept and what not, and the rest of the signals are edited out by culture,” he writes in his book, “Written in the Flesh: A History of Desire” (University of Toronto Press, 2005).

That’s not to say that cultural norms keep people from exploring the taboo, but only what is admitted to openly, according to archaeologist Timothy Taylor of Great Britain’s University of Bradford.

“The idea that there is a sexual line that must not be crossed but in practice often is, is far older than the story of Eve’s temptation by the serpent,” he writes in “The History of Sex: Four Million Years of Human Sexual Culture” (Bantam Books, 1996).

Modern advances

Religion especially has held powerful sway over the mind’s attitude towards the body’s carnal desires, most sexual psychologists agree. Men and women who lived during the pious Middle Ages were certainly affected by the fear of sin, Shorter said, though he notes there were other inhibiting factors to consider, too.

“The low priority attached to sexual pleasure by people who lived in distant times is inexplicable unless one considers the hindrances that existed in those days,” Shorter writes. He points especially to the 1,000 years of misery and disease—often accompanied by some very un-sexy smells and itching—that led up to the Industrial Revolution. “After the mid-nineteenth century, these hindrances start to be removed, and the great surge towards pleasure begins.”

Many historians and psychologists see the late 1800s as a kind of watershed period for sexuality in the Western world. With the industrial revolution pushing more and more people together—literally—in dense, culturally-mixed neighborhoods, attitudes towards sex became more liberal.

The liberalization of sexuality kicked into high gear by the 1960s with the advent of the birth control pill, letting women get in on the fun and act on the basis of desire as men always had, according to Shorter.

“The 1960s vastly accelerated this unhesitant willingness to grab sex for the sheer sake of physical pleasure,” he said, noting that the trend ofopenly seeking out sex just because it feels good, rather than for procreation alone, has continued on unabated into the new millennium.

Global variations

But despite the modern tendency towards sexual freedom, even today there are vast differences in attitudes across the world, experts say.

“Cultures vary tremendously in how early they start having sex, how open they are about it, and how many sexual partners they have,” said Buss, noting that Swedes generally have many partners in their lifetime and the Chinese typically have few.

An informal 2005 global sex survey sponsored by the condom company Durex confirmed Buss’ views. Just 3 percent of Americans polled called their sex lives “monotonous,” compared to a sizable 26 percent of Indian respondents. While 53 percent of Norwegians wanted more sex than they were having (a respectable 98 times per year, on average), 81 percent of the Portuguese were quite happy with their national quota of 108 times per year.

Though poll numbers and surveys offer an interesting window into the sex lives of strangers, they’re still constrained by the unwillingness of people to open up about a part of their lives that’s usually kept behind closed doors.

And what if we weren’t bound by such social limitations? Taylor offers the promiscuous—and very laid-back—bonobo chimpanzee as a utopian example.

“Bonobos have sex most of the time … a fairly quick, perfunctory, and relaxed activity that functions as a social cement,” he writes. “But for cultural constraints, we would all behave more like bonobos. In physical terms, there is actually nothing that bonobos do that some humans do not sometimes do.”

Monkey Attacked Baby, Tore Off Testicle And Ate It

Image

Why do males in China keep coming up short on “nut’s” This in from http://www.huffingtonpost.com

A vicious monkey attack at a wildlife park in Guiyang, China, maimed an 8-month-old boy, according to Chinese state media.

The boy’s mother was changing his dirty diaper at Guiyang Qianling Wildlife Park, where monkeys roam free. The animal reportedly attacked the boy, tearing off his testicle and dropping it. According to the Mirror, a man recovered the testicle, but the monkey then “snatched it from his hand before scampering away and eating it.”

There is conflicting information about the attack. The Daily Mail reported that both of the boy’s testicles were torn off, but that only one was eaten by the monkey.

The boy has been hospitalized. Though disfiguring, his injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

Just two months ago, an Arkansas man paralyzed from the waist down awoke to “burning pain” in his midsection, and was horrified to discover that a stray dog he had taken in had eaten one of his testicles while he slept.

What is Fellatio? Yes I just said that. ADULT CONTENT

I wont be using “tags” on this post Adult content. After a careful review I think this provides the information without being “pornographic”

This from:http://www.luckymojo.com/faqs/altsex/fella.html

 

Fellatio, giving head, giving a blow-job: Many men love this kind of stimulation, and many people, both women and men, like giving it. Fellatio is the act of applying your lips to a man’s penis with the purpose of giving him pleasure.

There are few tips to fellatio that can be given other than “practice.” The lips and the tongue are the major sources of stimulation, and it is with the lips and tongue that you should apply the attention to make him feel good. Both men and women respond well to pressure and rhythm. A steady, strong stroke will be enough to get the reaction you’re looking for.

This article assumes that you know what a penis looks like and can identify the corona, frenulum, and scrotum. If you are unsure, first read to the section on male sexual anatomy.

 

What if it doesn’t smell or taste good?

If the smell isn’t something you enjoy, then tell him to go take a shower! While this is something you’re doing primarily for his pleasure, that doesn’t mean you have to suffer if he’s lacking in hygiene! And if you’re worried about germs, your mouth has millions more germs than a clean penis.

 

What is “deep throating?”

Deep throating is the act of taking the penis down past your gag reflex. In reality, this particular sexual adventure is very overrated. The best way to give fellatio is still with the lips and tongue, taking only as much as you can without gagging. However, for those that want to know, the basic lesson is still “practice.” Take the penis as far as you can without choking, and then close your eyes and concentrate, taking each quarter inch, telling yourself that you won’t choke, that you can take it out at any time, and slowly swallow it down. Then rise off of it just as slowly.

 

Are there any special spots on the penis?

Every penis is different, and each has its sensitive spots and its preferred ways of being handled. Generally, the corona and frenulum are more sensitive than the base of the shaft of the penis. Listen to your lover. The sounds he makes and the feel of his body tensing are your best clues that you’re going this right. Don’t be afraid to ask him for specific spots to lick, kiss, or suck — each man has his own preferences.

 

Should I use my hands?

Feel free to grasp with your hands whatever of the penis you can’t fit into your mouth. As you slide your mouth off the penis, following behind with the hand allows you to linger on the corona longer and with a slightly diffeent sort of pressure. Many men like as much stimulation as possible, and the feel of a wet mouth and a saliva-slicked hand are enough to send them to the brink of orgasm very quickly. Some men like the feel of a hand gently “hugging” their scrotum; some like to be gently stroked with a wet finger down the length of the perineum. Some men may like the additional stimulation of a finger or two in the anus.

 

What is 69?

Some people feel that the best position to perform oral sex is the 69 position, where each partner lies with their head by the other’s genitals. For fellatio, this even makes sense — most penises curve upwards, towards the head, and in this position that curve matches the curve of the throat. However, it is difficult to both perform and appreciate oral sex at the same time. Try the position, or kneel by his body, but at least in the beginning do one thing at a time.

 

My boyfriend wants me to swallow. What do I do?

Which brings us to a sensitive issue: swallowing ejaculate. For many men, this is important to them — they like to feel that by swallowing their semen, you complete this act of lovemaking and accept a part of themselves into your body. But many people don’t like the taste of semen and can’t bring themselves. Talk about this beforehand — let him know if you can’t handle it, and that it’s not personal.

 

Can I make my seminal fluids taste better?

Macrobiotic nutritionists have actually done research on this question, and the answer is in: you are what you eat. Common sense dictates that if you taste good, your lover will want to eat you more often, so improving your body’s taste and smell should be important to you.
In general, nutritionsists say that alkaline-based foods such as meats and fish produce a butter, fish taste. Dairy products, which contain a high bacterial putrefaction level create the foulest tasting fluids by far. (Dissent: almost everyone I know says that there is one worse than a high-dairy content– asparagus. You can’t miss the taste of asparagus-laced semen.) Acidic fruits, such as sweets, fruits, and alcohol give bodily fluids a pleasant, sugary flavor. Chemically processed liquors will cause an extremely acidic taste, however, so if you’re going to drink alcohol, drink high-quality, naturally fermented beers (Rolling Rock or Kirin) or sake.

 

What are the contents of semen?

The question of semen content arises especially among persons who regularly swallow semen, as in fellatio, and who are concerned about calorie intake and nutritional substances. The average ejaculate contains aboutonia, ascorbic acid, blood-group antigens, calcium, chlorine, cholesterol, choline, citric acid, creatine, deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), fructose, glutathione, hyaluronidase, inositol, lactic acid, magnesium, nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, purine, pyrimidine, pyruvic acid, sodium, sorbitol, spermidine, spermine, urea, uric acid, vitamin B12, and zinc.
The caloric content of an average ejaculate is estimated to be approximately 15 calories.

Fei Lin’s Pen*s Stolen By Thieves 

Fei Lin, a 41 year old guy of the Niqiao village near Wenling City , in east China’s Zhejiang province has stolen his pen*s by the thieves while he was asleep.

The Thieves burst into his bedroom and put a bag over his head, according to CEN/EUROPICS and as reported in the Daily Star.

Lin apparently told police: “They put something over my head and pulled down my trousers and then they ran off

He also told, “I was shocked I didn’t feel a thing – then I saw I was bleeding and my pen*s was gone.”

Police believed that the attackers were jealous of him as Mr. Lin is the lover of several local women whom Lin was having affairs with, the Austrian Times reported.

Lin denied taking part in any infidelity.

Police and Emergency personnel searched for Lin’s Pen*s but they were unable to recover it. Now the Police will look for the men who were jealous by the Lin and by whom Lin was rumoured to be having affair with.

What Not to do!

The People I Have Slept With.

It was our third date and I couldn’t wait any longer. I sat on his bed as he plugged in his iPod and and put on Reggae music. He locked eyes with me and walked over slowly as if Reggae music was some kind of ” sexy” music that set the mood. Although the music weirded me out the second he took off his shirt I no longer cared. Just as things heated up he grabbed his ” sex pillow” a pillow designed to have sex on…. I’m always down to try new things but a sex pillow.. the first time.. Ehh I don’t know. The sex was weird, he kept switching positions. I felt like a rag doll being tossed around. It took a minute or so for me to notice that he was humping me exactly six times in every position. I have no idea where he learned…

Swedish male skinny-dippers warned after testicle-attacking pacu fish found in local lakes

Cross your leg’s guy’s this just in from: http://www.news.com.au/

NUDE swimming in Sweden has become risky business after an invasive species of fish infamous for attacking testicles was discovered in local waters.
Denmark’s Natural History Museum has issued the warning after the eight-inch (21cm) fish – a relative of the pirana – was caught in an eel trap in Oresund Sound off the south coast of Sweden.
Known as a pacu, the “ball-cutter” fish has a set of chompers remarkably similar to human teeth.
Natural History Museum of Denmark fish expert Henrick Carl told Swedish news site The Local that the freshwater fish bite “because they’re hungry, and testicles sit nicely in their mouth.”
“It normally eats nuts, fruit, and small fish, but human testicles are just a natural target. It’s not normal to get your testicles bitten off, of course, but it can happen …,” Mr Carl said.
The Natural History Museum kept its warning raw: “Keep your swimwear on if you’re bathing in the Sound these days – maybe there are more out there!”
The pacu is normally found in the warmer waters of the Amazon. They can grow up to 90cm (35 inches) and 25kg.
The museum is testing the DNA of the fish to confirm that it is a pacu.
“They are almost identical to the piranha,” Mr Carl told The Local. “It’s just that they have different teeth. Flatter and stronger, perfect for crushing.”

69 Sex Facts (ADULT CONTENT)

60. The term “blow job” comes from the Victorian times. In Victorian times, a slang term for a prostitute was “blowsy.” At the same time, “blow” was slang for ejaculation. Consequently, by the 1930s, the act of fellatio came to be known as a blow job.

61. In Ancient Greece, the common slang for a blow job was “playing the flute.”

62. Performing the act of fellatio massages the jaw while burning anywhere from 30-50 calories per session.

63. Semen contains zinc and calcium, both of which are proven to prevent tooth decay.

64. Studies have shown that men who look at male porn produce more sperm. The studies have shown that the men who watch two men and one woman produced more sperm than those who looked at just women. Scientists speculate that seeing competition makes men step up their baby-making capacities.

65. In Victorian times, whores wore pubic wigs. The pubic wig, known as merkins, has been around since the 1400s when it was originally worn by women who had shaved their pubic hair off to prevent lice.

They come in all shapes, sizes and designs (even sparkly butterflies).

66. Condoms were originally made of animal intestines or linen.

67. The word “fuck” is actually an accurate acronym. It dates back to the Good Old Days, when England was severely underpopulated due to the usual combination of fire/war/plague, and the King issued an official order to… well, fuck, to replenish the population. Hence the phrase “Fornicate Under Command of the King” passed into everyday language.

68. The word “sex” was coined in 1382. And that’s all I got on that.

69. Humans are the only species creative enough to “69.” All others have settled for the conventional and practical ways of gettin’ ‘er done.
