SEX RESEARCH: How Long Should Sex Last? Ugandans Speak Out…

If you’re a non-scientist, you might have once asked yourself, propped against the bedhead after disappointingly quick intercourse, how long does sex “normally” last?

A scientist, though, would phrase the same question in an almost comically obscure way: What is the mean intravaginal ejaculation latency time?

I know there’s a lot more to sex than putting the penis into the vagina and ejaculating, but the rest is not always easy to define (kissing? Rubbing? Grinding?). To keep things simple and specific, we’ll just focus on the time to ejaculation.

Measuring an average time to ejaculation is not a straightforward matter. What about just asking people how long they take, you say? Well, there are two main problems with this. One is that people are likely to be biased upwards in their time estimates, because it’s socially desirable to say you go long into the night.

The other problem is that people don’t necessarily know how long they go for. Sex isn’t something people normally do while monitoring the bedside clock, and unassisted time estimation may be difficult during a transportative session of love-making.

What does the research say?

The best study we have estimating the average time to ejaculation in the general population involved 500 couples from around the world timing themselves having sex over a four-week period – using a stopwatch.

That is as practically awkward as it sounds: participants pressed “start” at penile penetration and “stop” at ejaculation. You may note this could affect the mood somewhat, and might perhaps not exactly reflect the natural flow of things. But – science is rarely perfect, and this is the best we’ve got.

So what did the researchers find? The most striking result is that there was a huge amount of variation. The average time for each couple (that is, averaged across all the times they had sex) ranged from 33 seconds to 44 minutes. That’s an 80-fold difference.

There were some interesting secondary results, too. For example, condom use didn’t seem to affect the time, and neither did men’s being circumcised or not, which challenges some conventional wisdom regarding penile sensitivity and its relationship to staying power in the sack.So it’s clear there’s no one “normal” amount of time to have sex. The average (median, technically) across all couples, though, was 5.4 minutes. This means that if you line up the 500 couples from shortest sex to longest sex, the middle couple goes for an average of 5.4 minutes each time they do it.

What Ugandans Say….

Prince Woody Bagala-Alina Kayanja: 15 mins minimum, 50 mins maximum. What matters is the results and the feelings along the journey there, not how long it lasts.

Mubiru James: 1st round 45 mins, 2nd 25 mins den last but not least 15 mins

Nalongo Byooya: 10 minutes for romance then 20 minutes for sex

Nasaazi Zion: Some people  are always in hurry as if what they are eating can ever get finished.. …or reduce even a little bit…

Tania Nalu: 5 minutes of foreplay and 20 minutes of good sex. If his ‘thingi’ is weak, then 2 minutes of sex. I think the men who last seconds are wondering what the word minutes and hours mean.

Katabaazi Ponsiano: It depends to how deep you two are feeling for yourselves, One day some yrs back I had sex with someone for less than 5 minutes,
But it was the best game of our lives ever. We both took different directions but up to this day she can calls and reminds me of that moment,
Therefore it’s not about how short or long, but are minds and bodies completely ready to have sex? The biggest problem with people is to serve half baked food and by the time you reach in the middle of journey everything is as boring as hell

Researchers Explain What Getting Pimples Says About Your Health

Published

on

Your skin (including fingernails and hair) is a reflection of your health. According to a technique called ‘face mapping,’ various areas of the face reflect the health status of various internal organs.
“Face mapping is the ability to see the reflection of the body’s organs on each part of the face by observing the face’s complexion — such as luster, dullness, and color— as well as the tongue and face expression,” explains Chinese scholar and co-founder of the skincare line Baszicare Chapman Lee.
The practice of face mapping dates back several thousands of years, and is the product of (mainly) Chinese and Indian medical practitioners. The concept of face mapping has slightly evolved to include newer dermatological findings; though the central idea remains the same: where you’re breaking out is a reflection of what’s going on in your body.

HERE IS WHAT THE SIX AREAS OF YOUR FACE – AND THE PRESENCE OF ACNE REVEALS ABOUT YOUR HEALTH:
CHEEKS: According to face mappers, your cheek area is associated with lung function.
Medical conditions such as bronchitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), or some kind of respiratory failure, may present with acne around one or both cheeks. Heavy smokers are also more likely to develop skin problems around the cheek area. Taking care of allergies and avoiding smoking are two ways to clear up this area of the face.

CHIN AND MOUTH: The chin and mouth are related to the upper gastrointestinal tract. Skin problems in this area may be due to poor eating habits, e.g., overconsuming fast foods and processed foods. To keep breakouts from occurring in this area, consider eating a natural, fresh-foods-only diet. Also, make sure to get plenty of fiber, which helps ease digestion.
The chin area is associated with the kidneys – which contain the byproducts of metabolism – and the urinary tract (bladder, ureters, and urethra.) PMS symptoms often cause inflammation of the skin around the chin area, as well. Reducing your stress and toxins exposure is paramount to clearing up problems around these areas.

FOREHEAD – LOWER: Ancient schools of Chinese and Indian medicine taught that the lower forehead is connected to your mind and spirit. The surfacing of acne, pimples, and other blemishes may be due to prolonged bouts of anxiety and stress.
The area around your eyebrows is indicative of liver health. As such, acne here may indicate that you ingest too many harmful toxins (e.g., alcohol, fast food, nicotine.) Preventing acne requires elimination or moderation of toxin exposure and a fresh, low-fat diet.

FOREHEAD – UPPER: The area where your hairline begins and ends is the upper part of the forehead. Chinese and Indian medicine practitioners believe that this area is linked to the lower intestines, or lower gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Acne in this area may indicate problems with digestion.

Rectifying skin issues around the upper forehead requires the consumption of plenty of antioxidants (berries, green tea, lemon water, etc.). Also, make sure to eat foods that are rich in dietary fiber (artichokes, peas, beans, lentils).

NOSE: Skin areas around the nose can often be linked with the lungs and respiratory system. Also, oily skin and dehydration in this area may lead to blackheads and pimples.
Cardiovascular problems are also linked to skin health around this area. Try to limit your exposure to stress – and see if blemishes around your beak clear up (who knows, right?!)

Other ways to avoid breakouts around the nose is to eat a healthy, natural diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables. Make sure to wash your face using the appropriate type of wash for your skin type and sensitivity.

FOR WOMEN: Semen May Actually Treat Depression In Women – New Research Says

Published

on

A psychology professor and his team at the University of Albany, have found out that the absorption of semen by the female body correlates with fewer symptoms of depression according to higherperspectives.com.

The team conducted anonymous surveys of 300 female students. Each participant completed a survey about her intimate activities including frequency of intercourse, last intercourse, and how regularly the participant uses condoms. Participants also completed the Beck Depression Inventory. The Beck Depression Inventory, or BDI, presents a person with 21 questions that gauge their level of depressive symptoms including:

  • Mood
  • Negative outlook
  • Feelings of guilt
  • Self-dislike
  • Social withdrawal
  • Difficulty functioning

Responders rate each question as it applies to them. The rating scale per question ranges from zero to three, three being the most intense experience of the symptom.

The total score can be as high as 63, higher scores again correlating to more severe depression. When the team compared participants’ BDI scores to their intimacy habits, answers about condom use stood out.

According to lead author Gordon Gallup, women who never used condoms in penetration scenarios showed significantly lower scores on the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) than their peers who always or usually had their partners wear protection.

In developing this conclusion, the team made a point of adjusting for potentially relevant variables such as: relationship status use of other contraceptive strategies frequency of partner intimacy.

Among all variables, condom use correlated with the most clinically significant difference in participants’ BDI scores. The research team believes that the correlation between condom use and depressive symptoms may result from the interaction of biological material.

Gallup theorizes that upon penetration, the female partner’s internal tissues absorb some of the fluids that the male partner produces. It is possible, the team suggests, that a woman’s mood and feeling state may change in response to this absorption.

The study’s sample size is relatively small and there are a number of unanswered questions surrounding the results. Still, Gallup and his colleagues believe that the connection between improved mood non-use of condoms warrants further investigation.

The team cautions women and their partners not to take these findings as a motivation or an excuse not to use condoms. Gallup has issued a statement to remind the public that protection from infectious diseases and the prevention of pregnancy should take precedence over an attempt to make use of these findings.

New Sex Research: Semen May Actually Cure Depression/Stress In Women

Published

on

To add onto the many health benefits which come along with having sex, scientist have discovered that semen can help cure women’s depression. However, the said semen has to come from sex.

Recently, psychologists have found that a woman’s happiness levels and sleep quality could be attributed to the quantity of semen going into her body during sex. But before you toss those problematic condoms into the dustbin, here’s what you should know:

The research
A study from the State University of New York interviewed 300 women about their sexual behaviour. These women were asked to fill out an anonymous questionnaire that addressed various aspects of their sexual behaviour, including how often they had sexual intercourse, when they last had sex, and whether or not they used condoms.

What did they find?
According to the research results, the researchers found a strong relationship with the usage of condoms and the female level of depression. Females who engaged in sexual intercourse without the use of condoms exhibited significantly lower depression level when compared to those who usually or always used condoms.
The researchers took other factors into consideration, like whether or not a woman was on birth control or any other type of contraceptive, or if she was in a relationship. Only the usage of condoms seemed to be the only thing that really had a direct relationship to the woman’s mood.

How exactly does semen help?
The results of the research shows that the vagina absorbs a number of components of semen that can be detected in the bloodstream within a few hours after an intercourse.
There are six main compounds of interest in the seminal plasma (it is the fluid portion of semen) namely, cortisol, estrogen, prostaglandins, oxytocin, melatonin, and serotonin. Estrogen, oxytocin, and prostaglandins are linked to reducing the levels of stress and depression. The chemical oxytocin is said to trigger feelings of affection, which helps to promote social bonding. Melatonin is a sleep-inducing hormone and serotonin is regarded by science as the best known antidepressant neurotransmitter.

How could the benefits possibly outweigh the risks that unprotected sex holds for many people?
One of the golden rules we have learned from our childhood is, if you are going to have casual sex, you should always, ALWAYS, use protection. This is the obvious flaw in the research. Even though the researchers say that unprotected sex can reduce female depression and increase the quality of sleep, having dozens of kids and getting sexually transmitted diseases probably aren’t good for a woman’s mood or sleep schedule. Regardless of the findings, this study does not advocate that people should abstain from using condoms.
Therefore researchers only suggest this methodology if you’re a woman in a monogamous relationship and taking birth control (or if you’re planning to get pregnant). If you are someone who fall into the above said category, skipping the condom could do wonders for your mood.
