1. Racism and Sexism Limits Black College Women’s Sexual Partner Options and Leads Them to Pursue Sexual Relationships Outside the University Setting
– Amarachi R. Anakaraonye, Emily S. Mann, Lucy Annang Ingram & Andrea K. Henderson
Finding: Researchers conducted interviews with 20 black women who were attending college to learn more about their sex lives and discovered that racism and sexism limits black college women’s sexual partner options. Furthermore, scientists found that women inconsistently used condoms with regular casual sex partners.
This study also found that women were wary of spreading word about their sexual activities, so they were more likely to have sex with friends and people they already know rather than with friends of friends who might be in the larger overall black network.
2. Competition Flourishes Among Those Who Like Urethral Sounding
– Richard Tewksbury, John C. Navarro & David Lapsey
Finding: A team of scientists aimed to highlight behavior and motivation patterns among men who engage in urethral sounding, the practice of inserting thin metal (or glass rods) into their urethras. The team did find behavioral patterns in the group, specifically a transition from more vanilla sexual activities, which they found underwhelming, to extreme activities such as sounding. Participants reported that this activity enhanced masturbation and provided emotional and psychological rewards.
Finally, while people who engage in this activity were likely to keep it secret from all but a few of their closest confidantes, competition (often in the form of mastering larger items) thrived within the community of other sounders, and this brings practitioners enjoyment.
3. Threesomes Can Be Good For A Relationship
– Ryan Scoats & Eric Anderson
Finding: Researchers talked to 28 participants of threesomes, specifically in mixed-sex threesomes. More of the women reported engaging in threesomes while in a relationship; the threesome included their romantic partner and a third person. Although some subjects reported feeling left out or jealous during and after the threesomes, others noted how the shared experienced helped them build their relationships and help them explore their sexualities together rather than cheating. Answerers strove to protect their relationship by creating rules/boundaries, such as not repeating a threesome with the same person. and communicating openly.
The interviews also revealed that condom usage was prevalent: 79% of the people. And it was most common in those having sex outside of a relationship.
4. Straight Women Turned On By Both Men and Women
– Amanda D. Timmers, Samantha J. Dawson & Meredith L. Chivers
Finding: Researchers confirmed previous studies that found women who are exclusively attracted to men can experience an increased desire to masturbate by erotic imagery of both genders. In contrast, straight men and gay women have more gender-specific responses to erotic images.
Heterosexual women show a preference for men over women in their erotic imagery to increase partnered (dyadic) desire, but it was not found to be statistically significant. Scientists hypothesize that both fantasies and experience may trigger desire in straight women, resulting in arousal response to images of men and women.
5. Gay Segregation: Gay Men and Women Live In Separate But Adjacent Communities in Melbourne and Sydney
– Xavier Goldie
Finding: Scientists analyzed data about the neighborhoods where same-sex couples — both male and female, live in the largest urban centers of Australia: Sydney and Melbourne. The data shows that while same-sex couples tend to live in communities and those communities are close to one another, they remain segregated. Researchers attempted to isolate reasons for this separation without much success. However, male same-sex couples may reside in places with fewer children and greater land use diversity.
6. Girls With Insecure Attachment Style At Risk for STIs, Early Pregnancy
– Patrice Sentino, Phyllis L. Thompson, David Patterson & Derrick Freeman
This instructional video may be a bit shocking for you, but it will teach you how to make any man completely & utterly obsessed with you & only you by using 3 simple techniques. Check it out here to learn how.
Finding: Researchers reviewed existing articles for trends between attachment style and risky sexual behavior. There was a trend of absence, especially of fathers, that lead to insecure attachment styles in daughters. The studies examined young women between the age of 12 and 21. The studies consistently found that girls with insecure attachment styles were more likely to engage in sex early, experience early pregnancy, and contract STIs.
However, the researchers recommended more work to make connections between attachment style and risky sexual behavior.
7. Women View More Behaviors As Cheating Than Men
– Nathaly Moreno & Emily Pearl Kahumoku-Fessler
Finding: In a study of 83 undergrad students, half of whom were currently in relationships, researchers inquired whether behaviors counted as cheating in a relationship. The list of 34 items contained those that were explicitly cheating (physical sex, kissing, showering together, etc.), those that could be ambiguous (gift giving or taking a road trip), and deceptive behaviors such as texting or sexting someone else without their partner’s knowledge. Respondents rated each item as between “never considered cheating” and “always considered cheating.”
Overall, physical items rated more highly as cheated. Deceptive items were next, and emotional items were ranked lowest. Showering together, intercourse, and oral sex were always considered cheating by 90% of the participants. Emotional behaviors that could lead to physical cheating were more often considered cheating than those behaviors that wouldn’t lead to physical behaviors.
Researchers found that people who have previously cheated on a partner were more likely to view physical items as cheating than those who hadn’t experienced infidelity. However, those people who had been cheated on were more likely to rate emotional behaviors as cheating than individual with no history of cheating. Women were also more likely to rank both emotional and physical behavior as cheating than men, except in the instance where a man had previously been cheated on.
8. Men’s Relationship Satisfaction Correlates With Women’s Sexual Satisfaction
– Laura M. Vowels & Kristen P. Mark
Finding: Scientists recruited participants who had been in relationships for at least three years to ask questions about relationship and sexual satisfaction. Participants were an average of 34 years old and had been in relationships for an average of 9 years. Researchers sent the same survey to both partners. 202 couples participated in total with 80 couples participating in a two-month and four-month followups. One of the 80 couples dropped out.
The results show that a person’s sexual and relationship satisfaction were correlated but that their partner’s sexual and relationship satisfaction did not necessarily correlate to their own satisfaction in either realm. The exception to this trend is that men’s relationship satisfaction associated with a woman’s sexual satisfaction. Researchers compared the models and determined that relationship satisfaction was a stronger predictor of sexual satisfaction rather than the other way around. They also found that an increase in a woman’s sexual satisfaction at the first followup corresponded to a decrease in man’s sexual satisfaction at the second follow-up.
Because the long-term results were shorter (up to four months) than other studies, scientists suggest that sexual satisfaction may become a more important predictor of relationship satisfaction in longer relationships.
9. Spanish Students Fear Reaction From Peers If They Are/Believed to be Gay
– Lidón Moliner Miravet, Andrea Francisco Amat & Arecia Aguirre García Carpintero
Finding: A study of 128 tenth-grade students from Spain attempted to describe homophobic attitudes and behaviors in their peers as well as teachers. 97.6% of students believed that a teacher’s ability to teach was more important than their sexual orientation. A majority of students had witnessed negative behaviors toward queer students, including insults, mocking, rumors, and physical assaults. 63.3% of the students thought gay students were treated less fairly than everyone else.
Girls were both less likely to engage in negative behavior toward gay students and less likely to be on the receiving end. However, 32% of students feared rejection by their peers if there were or were believed to be LGBT, and another 6% worried about physical assaults. While 18.7% of students felt they would be supported by their friends if they were gay, girls were more likely to feel supported (72.2% versus 41.1%). 20% of students also felt that family members would attempt to change the students if they were gay.
10. Gay Men Who Experience Sexual Shame May Be More Sexually Compulsive
– H. Jonathon Rendina, Jonathan López-Matos, Katie Wang, John E. Pachankis& Jeffrey T. Parsons
Finding: Researchers administered a study to 260 gay and bisexual men to measure levels of sexual shame and the correlation between negative feelings such as anxiety and depression. As expected, sexual shame was positively correlated to those negative feelings and that sexual pride was either a negative predictor of those feelings or had no correlation. Scientists also determined that sexual shame was a predictor of future sexually compulsive behavior. Furthermore, researchers determine that sexual shame and pride are separate constructs that can exist together rather than being on opposite ends of a spectrum.
11. People Who Believe Porn Is A Sexual Education Resource Are Less Likely to Use Condoms
– Dr Paul J. Wright, Dr Chyng Sun & Dr Nicola Steffen
Finding: One study of 200 sexually-active German adults who were not in relationships suggests that people who consume porn who also viewed porn as sex education are less likely to use condoms during their own sexual activities. However, there was no link associated with condom use and people who did not perceive porn as a form of sex education even if those people watched porn. The stronger that people agreed that porn was a form of sex education, the less likely they were to use condoms.
12. Religious Students Struggle More With Compulsive Sexual Behavior Than Nonreligious Students
– Yaniv Efrati
Finding: Scientists predicted that religious (Orthodox Jewish) would exhibit more compulsive sexual behavior, including intrusive sexual thoughts, than their peers, and a study of 371 religious students and 290 secular students confirmed this. Religious participants also reported higher levels of anxiety and depression than other students. The difference was non-significant for depression and slightly significant for anxiety.
A second study of 350 religious and 172 secular students determined that while compulsive sexual thoughts and behavior were higher for religious participants, they didn’t report higher distress, but their well-being was lower than secular ones.
In a third study, scientists surveyed 317 Israeli adolescents, 51.4% of which identified as nonreligious, to determine how many deployed suppression as a means of getting rid of sexual thoughts. Researchers hypothesize that attempting to repress sexual thoughts may actually lead to more intrusive sexual thoughts. Survey results show that religious adolescents were more likely to try to suppress those thoughts, linking it to higher levels of intrusive sexual thoughts.
13. College Students More Likely to Engage in Unwanted Sex, Experience Less Pleasure When Drunk
Bisexual Women Experience Greater Rates of Sexual Assault
– Debby Herbenick, Tsung-Chieh (Jane) Fu, Brian Dodge & J. Dennis Fortenberry
Finding: A survey of 7,032 college students looked at rates of desire, consent and pleasure during sober, drinking-but-not-drunk, and drunken sexual encounters. As alcohol intake increased, participants reported wanting the sex they had less. 1.3% men, and 3.1% women still engaged in unwanted sex when they had a little to drink, rates similar to the sober group. Those rates increased for drunk students to about 5 – 8% of men and 4 – 6% of women who engaged in sex even though they didn’t want it.
Both men and women were less likely to enjoy sex with casual sex partners rather than regular partners. Men who reported as asexual or gay also experienced less sexual pleasure while women who were confused about their sexuality also experienced decreased pleasure levels.
This study supports others that have found bisexual women are more commonly victims of sexual assault, finding rates of non-consensual sex of 29.6% for bisexual women and 15% for straight women. Gay men were the more likely to be assaulted (15.2%) than bisexual or straight men. Most reported cases of non-consensual sex involved being too drunk to consent rather than threats of violence or force.
14. Chinese Women More Likely to Use Condoms During First Sex
Female Drug Users in China More Likely to Get Tested for HIV
– Qun Zhao, Yuchen Mao, Mengqi Sun & Xiaoming Li
Finding: An examination of the sexual activities of 901 Chinese drug users 504 men and 397 women) revealed that women were more likely to use condoms than men during their first sex (18.8 versus 10.7%). Researchers also found that 28.2% of female drug users had used drugs before the age of 18 while only 12.6% of men had. However, 40.3% of men were more likely to have had their first sex when they were 16 or younger while only 25.6% of women lost their virginity at or before the same age.
Women’s sexual partners were more likely to be spouses, boyfriends/girlfriends, or friends compared to men who had more one-night stands and casual sex. Finally, women were more likely to get tested for HIV than men (37.9 versus 28.0%).
15. Effect of Porn On Relationships Is Complicated
– Megan K. Maas, Sara A. Vasilenko & Brian J. Willoughby
Finding: Researchers surveyed 3,313 straight couples who lived together to determine how porn consumption affected their relationship satisfaction. They found that men who were the most accepting of porn experienced more relationship satisfaction, but those who were less accepting and used porn were less satisfied with their relationships.
This study also found that porn use by women who were highly accepting of porn had no effect on the relationship. Like men, women who disapproved of porn and used it experienced less relationship satisfaction.
While general porn use by partners decreased relationship satisfaction, this correlation was stronger for those who did not accept porn use.
Finally, scientists looked at attachment style and found that men who were anxious attachment and consumed porn were more satisfied with their relationships while women with anxious attachment styles who used porn had lower levels of relationship satisfaction.
16. Men and Women Have Sex For the Same Reasons — Mostly
– Elia Wyverkens, PhD, Marieke Dewitte, PhD, Ellen Deschepper, PhD, Joke Corneillie, MS, Lien Van der Bracht, MS, Dina Van Regenmortel, MS, Kim Van Cleempoel, MS, Noortje De Boose, MS, Petra Prinssen, BACom, and Guy T’Sjoen, MD, PhD
Finding: A sample of 4,655 people were surveyed about their motivations to have sex. The results were split by age group: younger than 18, 18 to 22, 22 to 55 (60% of the respondents), and older than 55. Three reasons for having sex occurred regardless of age or sex: it’s fun, it feels good, and I wanted to experience physical pleasure. Of those, “It’s fun” or “It feels good” ranked at the most significant reason for every group.
Researchers did find differences based on age and gender, however. Women, especially older women, were more likely to engage in sex for emotional reasons such as desiring closeness or showing affection. Women were also more likely to have sex for self-esteem reasons than men while men focused on physical reasons as well as stress relief. The 18-22 group of men was most likely to be motivated by love or commitment.
The survey found that as men and women age, physical attractiveness becomes less important, and they’re more likely to have sex for emotional reasons. While older participants rated sex as more important, they also described it as less satisfying.
17. Moderate Drinking Decreases Erectile Dysfunction
– Mark S. Allen, PhD, and Emma E. Walter, PhD
Finding: Scientists examined previous publications to highlight how lifestyle factors such as cigarette smoking, drinking, diet, and exercise affected sexual function. Researchers found that men who exercised more experienced fewer issues with erections while those who smoke more had more difficulty getting hard. Women who were active similarly experienced fewer issues with sexual dysfunction.
Moderate drinking (1-3 drinks per day) correlated with a decrease in erectile dysfunction, but this wasn’t true for men who had more than three drinks per day.
18. Men’s Exercise Increase Sexual Frequency in Trying-to-Conceive Couples
Anxiety and Mood Disorders in Men Decreases Sexual Frequency in Trying-to-Conceive Couples
– Audrey J. Gaskins, ScD, Rajeshwari Sundaram, PhD, Germaine M. Buck Louis, PhD, and Jorge E. Chavarro, MD, ScD
Finding: A study examines the sexual frequency of 460 couples who were trying to conceive. Researchers found that couples who had sex more than nine times per month were younger and that an increase of one year in a man or woman’s age correlated to a decrease in frequency of 2.5. Interestingly, if the woman had a high school education or less, the couple had sex 34.4% times than a couple where the woman had more education.
While rotating shift work decreased sexual frequency by 23.1%, other schedules didn’t affect the rate of sex. Furthermore, a man who exercises corresponded to an increase in frequency of 13.2% with maximum frequency if the man exercises 3-4 days per week, but a woman who exercised didn’t increase rates of sex. There was a decrease of sex by 26% if the man experienced anxiety or a mood disorder, but the same wasn’t the same for women with mood disorders.
19. PTSD Increases Pain During Sex But Doesn’t Decrease Arousal or Orgasm in Women
Bisexual Victims of Sexual Abuse More Likely to Experience PTSD
– Pia Bornefeld-Ettmann, MSc, Regina Steil, PhD, Klara A. Lieberz, PhD, Martin Bohus, PhD, Sophie Rausch, MSc, Julia Herzog, MSc, Kathlen Priebe, MSc, Thomas Fydrich, PhD, and
Meike Müller-Engelmann, PhD
Finding: A study looked at three groups of women: 103 women with PTSD who experienced abuse before age 18, 32 women who suffered abuse before 18 but without PSTD, and 52 women without either abusive histories or PTSD.
The group of women who had been abused and had PTSD was less likely to be heterosexual (31.3% bisexual and 6.3% lesbian). While only 3.1% of abused women without PTSD were bisexual, 81.3% of that group was straight.
The survey found that women with PTSD were more likely to experience sexual aversion, pain and lower levels of sexual satisfaction than those women without PTSD. However, they experienced similar levels of arousal and orgasm as the other two groups.
20. Vaginal Stimulation Experienced As More Pleasurable for Women Satisfied with Their Relationships, More Painful for Women Who Aren’t
– Dewitte M, Schepers J, Melles R
Finding: Scientists applied vaginal pressure to female to 42 female subjects who watched erotica material with their male partners. Women reported feeling more aroused when their partners were present. The study also found that women were more likely to report the pressure as pleasurable if they experienced relationship satisfaction, and women who were less satisfied were more likely to report the pressure as painful.
21. Women Choose Sex Partners More Impulsively When Condoms Are Available
– Shea M. Lemley, David P. Jarmolowicz, Daniel Parkhurst, Mark A. Celio
Finding: Researchers investigated how women in college chose partners when condoms were readily available and not available. The study found that students were more likely to choose less-preferred but more available partners when they had access to condoms and suggest that access to contraceptives aids impulsive partner choosing.
The study also found that risky sex behaviors correspond more closely to a person’s difficulty to delay gratification than their propensity to take risks.
22. Lesbians Define Sex More Broadly, Want It More Often
Women in Relationships With Other Women More Likely to Orgasm
– Shelby B. Scott. Lane Ritchie. Kayla Knopp. Galena K. Rhoades. Howard J. Markman2
Finding: A study of same-sex female couples found that the majority (85%) of women considered activities such as oral sex, genital-to-genital touching, hand-to-genital touching, using sex toys, and anal stimulation/penetration to be sex. Only 60% of women considered one woman masturbating while the other watches to be sex. Same-sex female couples have sex about once per week while 69% of participants described wanting sex more often than they have it.
Only 3% of women had never had an orgasm with their partners,
23. Positive Body Image Makes a Woman Less Likely to Use Condoms Compared to Other Contraceptives.
– Virginia Ramseyer Winter, Lindsay Ruhr, Danielle Pevehouse. Sarah Pilgrim
Finding: Every 1-point increase in a woman’s appreciation of her body equates to her being 1.35 times more likely to use contraception other than condoms. Black and Asian women were 52 and 55% less likely to use condoms than white women. Researchers suggest that race correlates with body image. This study did not find a connection between positive body image and unplanned pregnancy.
24. Neonatal and Childhood Circumcision Causes Distress, Body Image Issues in Men
– Jennifer A. Bossio, Caroline F. Pukall
Finding: A study of men who had been circumcised as infants/children, adults and uncut men found men who had been circumcised as infants were the most distressed over their circumcisions. Men who were happy with their circumcision status, whether they were cut or uncut, were likely to report improved body image than men who were unhappy with their status. This unhappiness may also associate with sexual dysfunction, and the researchers suggest that doctors inquire about this when treating men.
