Corn Flakes were invented to curb your horny feelings

July 24, 2017

Being a sexy stuff writer for all of you wonderful Twenty Something Humans, has definitely expanded my knowledge on how clever and fucking weird these sexy bodies of ours are. When researching topics to write about I've come across some pretty interesting stuff. So, for your reading pleasure, here are some of my favourite WTF sex facts that I found on the internet.

 

 

 

One single dude could theoretically impregnate every women on the planet

 

We have to make a few assumptions for this one. Assuming that each sperm and every egg were viable for use and that every woman of “child bearing age” was up for it, science says that it's theoretically possible that one man might be able to make enough lil swimmers to impregnate every woman on earth in two weeks.

 

Right… let’s just keep that in mind next time we're watching The Bachelor.

 

 

Kellogg's Corn Flakes were invented to help curb sexual arousal and your pesky masturbation habit

 

Yup. Mr John Harvey Kellogg invented Corn Flakes in the19th century as a plain, anaphrodisiac

 (non-sexy) breakfast meal to stop self pleasure. Kellogg believed sex and masturbation were unhealthy for the body and the mind and had a theory that meats and certain other flavoursome foods increased sexual desire whilst simple grains and nuts would curb it.

 

He also suggested yoghurt as another anaphrodisiac. I'm totally rethinking my standard breakfast choices here.

 

 

Wearing socks to bed is actually sexier than you think

 

There’s the whole married life stereotype that wearing socks spells the end of your honeymoon period, but studies actually suggest that the likelihood of somebody reaching orgasm is increased when wearing socks. (Editors note: this is totally fucking creepy).

 

Scientists reckon that this might be due to the safety and security that we experience when wearing our daggiest jammies and socks, and the obvious comfort levels that are reflected when we wear them in front of our other halves.

 

Also, by keeping our tootsies warm, the blood vessels in our feet dilate which sends signals to our brains that it's sleepy time. How freakin' cool are our bodies?

 

 

 

Men burn more calories (on average) during sex than women do

 

Unless you’re getting your aerobatic Karma Sutra moves out, scientists say that on average men burn between 100-200 calories while doin’ the deed while the ladies only burn 69… Someone’s fucking with us with that number right?

 

This will come as no surprise to the star-fishers out there.

 

The clitoris is twice as sensitive as the male genitalia

 

It’s true ladies! The male penis has a tiny 4,000 nerve fibres, while our glorious little clitoris has a huge 8,000 which explains why for a lot of us, clitoral stimulation during sex is an absolute must.

 

 

 

The vibrator was invented in the 19th century as a cure for “Hysteria”

 

‘The Journal of Treatment and Prevention' found that half of all internet purchases are either for porn or sex toys, but what many people don’t know is that these sexy items, which are common place item in most top drawers these days, were actually invented by male doctors in the Victorian era.

 

If you’ve ever read a Victorian era novel, you’ll have heard mention of a woman’s “hysteria”. Most cases of “hysteria” are now actually attributed to sexual frustration or depression, as women of the era were not thought to have any sexual desire or pleasure. Typical.

 

 

Symptoms such as anxiety, sleeplessness, irritability, nervousness, erotic fantasies and wetness between the legs were eventually “treated” by male doctors essentially “jacking off” their female patients…Over time the doctor’s hands were getting pretty dang tired from all their handy work and a brilliant (praise the lord) doctor named Dr. Joseph Mortimer Granville, invented the first electric vibrator. Funnily enough, more than a decade before the invention of the iron or the vacuum.

 

Though we may now praise the invention, at the time the treatment was extraordinarily horrific for the women and most often, unsuccessful.

 

The woman who coined the term G-spot and helped identify female ejaculation’s name was Professor Beverly Whipple

 

And they named it a G-Spot? Come on Bev, you could have had way more fun with that.

 

Your vagina increases in size once you hit 30

 

Rejoice in your 20 something vagina, because according to Mooncup (you know those tampon alternative “cups”) once you hit you’re 30s it’s time to up the size of the cup. This is not just due to the fact you may have had a small human stretch you out, but it's also down to the tone of the pelvic floor muscles which naturally deteriorate as you age. Just another thing to look forward too.

 

 

 

Watching male porn actually increases the strength of a male’s sperm and makes it more likely they’ll conceive.

 

According to one of the best sex books I’ve ever read (think sex facts not fifty shades) How Sex Works by Sharon Moalem, “a mans sperm will perform better with another man in the room, because the men are instinctually built to compete. It’s survival of the fittest.” Sharon says that although more confirmatory work needs to be done, current research suggests that men who watch porn involving a male rather than just women alone have higher sperm mobility… simply put, they swim better.

 

 

 

 

 

Anna Wall is a self-confessed hedonist and self-appointed travel expert. She drinks coffee until its appropriate to move on to wine and believes that there is nothing more satisfying in life than good wine and a good book. She's scared of balloons, the dark and of growing up.
