Sex. We all know it and most of us have it. But what do we really know about sex? What do we know about orgasms, penis size, and sexercise? We have compiled a list of 7 surprising facts that will leave your friends and lovers in awe.
Fact #1: When erect, the average penis size is 5 to 5.7 inches long
According to recent studies done by Paris’s National Academy of Study, most guys measure 5 to 5.7 inches long and 3.9 to 4.1 around when aroused. So contrary to popular belief, most men do not have a 7 inch penis.
Fact #2: When aroused a woman’s vagina actually stretches
An average vagina is typically 3 to 4 inches long. When aroused it can actually expand up to two hundred percent, according to research. So in this case, size actually does not matter.
Fact #3: Women’s orgasms can last up to 4 times as long as men’s
The average male orgasm lasts about 6 seconds while a woman’s lasts about 20.
Fact #4: Thirty minutes of sex will help burn 200 calories
According to an article published in Woman’s Day Magazine, sex can be high-calorie burning. The key is to make sex hot and last longer. Sighing and moaning can help burn additional calories. Another way is to switch up positions and to even exaggerate positions. For instance, if you are on top try moving your hips like a belly dancer. Experts also say that women who achieve an orgasm during sex tend to burn more calories.
Fact #5: The average speed of ejaculation during a male orgasm is twenty-eight miles per hour
Speedy demons; however, once the sperm enter the vagina they drastically slow down. It takes sperm 5 minutes to make the 6 inch trip of reaching the cervix. It can also take sperm up to 72 hours to find an egg, according to Mark Elliot, director of the Institute for Psychological and Sexual Health.
Fact #6: Simple positions provide the most intense orgasms
If you are looking for a mind-blowing, bed-rattling orgasm stick to the basics. According to sex educator Dorian Solot, when trying new, more complicated positions, your focus is on trying to find balance versus the actual sex. With a few modifications to traditional sex positions, you can make them even more orgasmic.
Fact #7: Yoga can help to increase arousal, orgasms, and sexual satisfaction
Great sex is one of the ultimate mind-body experiences, and so is yoga. Not only is yoga a great stress reliever but certain positions improve posture, flexibility, blood flow, and open your heart – all great for a hot sex life. Yoga also helps to teach mindfulness and living in the present, two other things that helps turn good sex into great sex.
