Ridiculously Obvious Sex Studies of 2007
Good sex research, let alone funding for such research, is hard to come by. Between differing political ideologies, the withdrawal of federal agency-support for sexuality research, difficulty attaining human subject committees’ approval’ the threat of lawsuits, and the view of sexuality issues as taboo, little sex research is being conducted during these times when it comes to your sex life.
Yet every year, a handful of research reports are released, which always invite the questions: Did research really need to confirm that? And who’s funding this kind of crap anyway?
The following are among the most notable of the Ridiculously Obvious Sex Findings of 2007:
— People like to have sex for all sorts of reasons. So should it be any surprise that, when asked to give 237 possible reasons for putting out, the most common responses from college students included: wanting to experience physical pleasure; being attracted to their lover; or just simply sex feels good?
Perhaps the tragic bit about these findings is that researchers at the University of Texas spent five years and their own money confirming these ridiculously obvious motivations for wanting to knock boots. Calling all men, doing more housework will get you more “bootay” in the boudoir!
— While psychologist John Gottman has been faithfully churning out respectable work on couples for more than 30 years, did anybody need to remind guys that they can forgo the flowers and chocolate for a mop and vacuum when it comes to wooing women?
Practically any gal can tell you that if her partner was more willing to lift a finger around the house, she’d be up for more sex and better sex at that!
— Your dreams “consist of some form of sexual-related activity.” This was seriously the headliner regarding a detailed study, shared at the 21st annual Meeting of the Associated Professional Sleep Societies, that was done to investigate the actual nature and content of men’s and women’s dreams.
Perhaps the only noteworthy tidbit from this Universite de Montreal research is that only 8 percent of everyday dream reports contained some form of sex-related activity, with the most common type once again causing your eyes to glaze over in being so ridiculously obvious — most sex dreams involved sexual intercourse, followed by sexual propositions, kissing, and masturbation. Zzzzzz….
— Men and women are from the same planet. Thank God a University of Florida study has confirmed that both genders are not so Mars/Venus when it comes to getting in touch with their inner feelings when bonding in an intimate relationship. Such feelings trump societal gender expectations about sexual behavior, with men less likely to acquire a number of different partners and women desiring more sex when involved.
— I don’t know about you, but I’m really glad somebody spelled out that romantic relationships typically involve being monogamous and putting out. Sexual dysfunctions may be in your hormones. Italian investigators at the University of Ancona and l’Aguila have learned that most bad sex is due to hormones. Given that one’s hormones directly or indirectly regulate all human sexual functions, from desire to arousal to orgasmic response, is it any wonder that your body chemistry may be at the heart of any physical, medical or mental problems related to sexual function??
— We’ve known for years now that oral sex is prevalent amongst teens, with many opting for such intimacy because they’re under the misguided impression that oral sex is “safer” than intercourse. It’s not.
In beating this dead horse headliner, the San Francisco Chronicle reported that one study “revealed” that the emotional implications for tongue in cheek titillations frequently results in regret or feelings of guilt and manipulation, with girls twice as likely as boys to feel badly about themselves after oral sex, frequently feeling “used." The killer finding — boys were more than twice as likely as girls to say sexual activity made them feel self-confident and popular. Hmmm… or should I say mmmmm?
