You can “build” your sex desire
The desire to have sex today is giving you more chances to feel the sexual desire tomorrow and to have sex – tomorrow, based on a study published in the “Archives of Sexual Desire”. Well, and this means that cuddling, or adding some small “sexy” moments, even without having sex, will improve your sexual life in time.
An open-minded person is a potential cheater
A study from the “Personality and Individual Differences” journal, explains that the personality trait associated with cheating is “to be open-minded”. People that are more open to new experiences and who are open to discussing “taboo” subjects are potential cheaters.
How does perimenopause change a woman’s body?
During and after menopause, the hormones start to make changes of the vaginal walls and they become thinner and which means that the vagina lubricates less. This process is also known as “vaginal atrophy”, and lack of natural lubricate leads to difficulties having sex. And a new study found in the “Menopause” journal, shows that the symptoms associated with dryness and sexual pain could come in a period called “perimenopause” – the period right before menopause hits.
Childhood traumas influence sexual experiences in adulthood
A study found in 2019, in “Journal of Sex & Marital Therapy”, has shown that people that have experienced childhood traumas feel less satisfaction during a sexual act. Traumas during childhood are associated with “daily psychological distress” and with being “less mindful”, and this leads to less pleasure while having sex.
Not all orgasms are satisfying
Orgasms are not a factor that means that the sex was good. A new study published in “Archives of Sexual Behavior”, has shown that 55% of people have experienced so-called “bad orgasm”, and here we talk about those ones that hurt physically, or orgasms less satisfying than previous ones, or those ones that happened in other situations associated with psychological traumas.
Does the word “clitoris” out loud make women think about better sex?
Only by saying out loud the word “clitoris”, women tend to think about better sex, because the “clitoris” is the key to sexual pleasure. Being comfortable with this word will lead to bigger sexual satisfaction, and fake orgasms happen less. The scientists’ research shows that being open to talking about sex, just makes the sexual life better, and even talking about the parts of the body that can “stimulate” the sexual desire, is beneficial for the “improvement” we are looking for when it comes to our sexual life.
Women are still shy to talk about their desires in bed
A new study found in the “Archives of Sexual Behaviour”, shows that 55% of women from the USA have reported having situations in which they felt the need to talk to their partner about their sexual desires, but something stopped them from it. About one in 5 women didn’t feel comfortable having discussions about her sexual pleasures and about one in 10 women never experienced sexual acts in which she felt that the partner has appreciated her sexual satisfaction.
Sex Protects Against Cancer
Based on some studies, men older than 50, that are having sex have fewer chances to be diagnosed with prostate cancer than men of the same age that do not have a sexual life. A study published in the journal “BJU InternationalTrusted Source” have shown that sexual act and masturbation also reduce the risk of prostate cancer. So, sex is proving constantly its beneficial parts.
Sperm quality is directly impacted by orgasm
Having sex frequently improves the quality of the sperm, by increasing fertility, and reducing DNA damage. The study from “European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology” found that men who have sex daily, or ejaculate daily, have higher quality semen after a week than men who did not have sexual activity.
Sex takes away the physical pain
Based on research, sex literally is like a “pill” for some types of pain. During arousal and orgasm, the hypothalamus in the brain releases oxytocin – “the feel-good hormone”. Rutgers University from New Jersey has explained that oxytocin helps women to feel less discomfort and pain, especially during that period of the month. Another study published in the “Bulletin of Experimental Biology and Medicine” that the same, oxytocin in men cuts pain perception by half.
Whoreoween: Honoring Icons in Sex Worker Costumes
Whoreoween is an innovative twist on Halloween, offering sex workers a chance to step beyond the usual sexy nurse outfits and honor legends from their industry. This event serves as an opportunity to pay tribute to current and historical figures, bringing a sense of uniqueness and recognition to a community often overshadowed by stereotypes.
Dita von Teese, a modern burlesque icon, serves as a perfect inspiration. Known for her performances, Playboy appearances, and burlesque acts, she embodies the essence of a seductress. Her costume would include a classic 40s pageboy hairstyle, a sequined corset, opera gloves, statement earrings, and bright red lipstick, preferably in MAC’s Viva Glam I or Ruby Woo shades.
Marsha P. Johnson, a pivotal figure in the Stonewall uprising, is another inspirational figure. As a gay liberation activist, trans woman, and drag queen, she advocated for gay, trans, and sex worker rights. Her costume would feature a flower crown, 70s-style glamour with a slinky dress, faux or vintage fur, sequins, and bold jewelry, capturing her spirit and role in the gay rights movement.
Dee Dee Ramone, known for his role in the Ramones, also worked as a sex worker. His costume would reflect his classic punk style with tight vintage jeans, a DIY sleeveless t-shirt, and a leather jacket.
Ms. Mona Stangley, from “The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas,” portrayed by Dolly Parton, offers a Western-inspired look. The costume could include big hair, flouncy prairie dresses, or a satin corset with a sheer robe, embodying the spirit of the 80s Texas madam.
Zorita, a groundbreaking burlesque dancer, is known for her bold performances with snakes and a famous ‘half and half’ act. Her costume would include fishnet stockings, ruffled dresses, spangly heels, and possibly a tiara or two platinum streaks in the hair.
Tilly Devine and Kate Leigh, 1920s Sydney gangsters, provide a unique option for a doubles costume. Their outfits would reflect the era’s fashion, featuring heavy coats, top hats, or beaded headscarves, emphasizing their toughness.
Josephine Baker, an American-born dancer, actress, and WWII spy, offers a glamorous choice. Her costume could include glittery earrings, a beaded satin cocktail dress, and a classic 20s hairstyle. The famous Banana Dance outfit, featuring a pearl necklace and an artificial banana skirt, also represents her iconic status.
Lycoris the Mime, from ancient Rome, presents a historical option. Her costume would include traditional white robes, perhaps with floral headpieces, reflecting the mime artists’ role during the Floralia festival.
Lastly, Bettie Page, a 1950s pinup and fetish model, offers a vintage choice. Her costume might include a leopard-print leotard, sheer dress with faux fur, or classic black satin lingerie paired with shiny black heels.
Whoreoween provides a platform for sex workers to celebrate their history and culture, offering a way to honor icons who have made significant contributions to the industry and society.
2023 Celebrity Halloween Hits and Misses
As Halloween rolls around, the unveiling of celebrity costumes becomes a highly anticipated event, reflecting both triumphs and transgressions in fashion and fandom. 2023 proved no different, with an array of high-profile personas embracing the season’s spirit through an eclectic mix of costumes.
The celebrations of 2023 remind us that Halloween is not only a display of creativity but also a reflection of our times. It’s a balancing act between homage and originality, between respect for tradition and the thrill of innovation. This year’s array of costumes, from the star-studded to the minimalistic, confirms that celebrity Halloween looks will continue to be a pop culture spectacle, for better or for worse.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, whose stature often overshadows any character he attempts to portray, tried to channel soccer legend David Beckham with a ‘90s-era jersey and a blonde wig. Despite the effort, the familiar face of this wrestler-turned-actor was still the main highlight.
Keke Palmer brought a touch of narrative to her costume. The actress and singer, accompanied by her son Leo as a mini mad scientist, transformed into Frankenstein’s creature. This whimsical yet heartwarming costume was well-received, as Palmer humorously credited her son for giving her “LIFE,” a play on her role as a mother and Frankenstein’s creation.
Adele, the vocal powerhouse, took to the stage in Las Vegas, embodying the dark elegance of Morticia Addams. Her rendition was both fitting for the Queen of the Night and adored by her audience, capturing the gothic essence of the beloved character with a long black wig and striking nails.
However, not all costumes were met with applause. Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly’s “Kill Bill” ensemble sparked controversy. While visually striking, Fox’s decision to flout SAG-AFTRA guidelines amid an actor’s strike resulted in significant backlash, with some labeling her actions as insensitive.
Meanwhile, Austin Butler and Kaia Gerber paid homage to pop art and ‘60s fashion icons Andy Warhol and Edie Sedgwick. The couple’s costume, timely for Butler’s rising fame, was both a cultural throwback and a fitting tribute to Warhol’s enduring legacy.
Florence Pugh took a different route, embracing a more casual, last-minute look as a nod to Guy Fieri. The simplicity and relatability of her costume resonated with fans who appreciate a more spontaneous approach to Halloween.
Revolutionizing Desire: The Rise of FPOV Porn
In the realm of virtual reality (VR) adult entertainment, the concept of female point-of-view (FPOV) porn has sparked interest but remains underexplored. Content creators like Lee and Erika Lust have noted that many women seek a deeper connection than traditional porn provides, craving emotional resonance alongside physical stimulation. They suggest that the industry has not fully grasped or catered to female sexual preferences, which extend beyond mere visual cues to include psychological engagement.
One of the key players, Sex Like Real (SLR), has experimented with FPOV content, responding to specific requests from their audience. However, despite attempts to innovate with scenarios like the “boyfriend experience” and narratives of female empowerment, these ventures have not always been profitable. SLR’s findings indicate that the financial returns on FPOV content don’t yet match those of conventional porn, suggesting either a mismatch in content or a niche audience.
Only a small fraction of SLR’s user base identifies as female, which might indicate limited demand. Nonetheless, industry executives like David Chapman of SLR speculate that the true number of female users is underreported due to shared devices among couples. Chapman and his colleagues believe in the importance of catering to female viewers, not only for diversity but also because VR porn can provide a safe space for exploring sexuality.
The technological barrier presented by the high cost of VR equipment also contributes to the limited reach of FPOV porn. Not everyone can afford the gear necessary to enjoy such immersive experiences, as pointed out by Lust, who acknowledges the success of her VR film “360 Degrees of Lust,” though less than her other works.
The content itself has been critiqued for not fully capturing women’s diverse tastes. A superfan of FPOV, known as Super Smash Cache, has highlighted the industry’s narrow depiction of male attractiveness and the scarcity of content that appeals to her preferences. This suggests that a wider range of male portrayals might better satisfy the diverse desires of female viewers.
Conclusively, there is a consensus that while there is an audience for female-centric VR porn, the industry needs time to adapt. More women in development and production roles could catalyze this change, fostering content that resonates more deeply with female viewers. As the technology becomes more accessible and content more diverse, FPOV porn has the potential to redefine what is desirable in adult entertainment.
