Valentine’s day, from Virginity to Viagra

13 Feb

The eve of the Valentine’s day, let’s talk about sex (in a scientific manner of course).

Study number 1: The more a state is prone to teach abstinence only until marriage in its teen education program the more its rate of teen’s pregnancy is high.

Study number 2: Women think of sex between 1 and 140 times per day. And if men think about sex a little more that’s because they also think more about sleep or food (i.e. physiological needs) when compared to women.

Study number 3: a study with small effectives brings a proof of concept (i.e.proof-of-principle) that DHEA hormone intake could enhance the rate of sexual intercourse, the sexual activity and the sexual interest (i.e. provide a better sex life) in post menopausal women. Of course at this stage of the research progress those findings only raise hypothesis and studies at a larger scale are needed to confirm or infirm the concept.

Study number 4: a book treating about sexuality during the entire lifespan enlightens that Sexual Transmissible Infections have tripled among women aged over 50. The cause could be found in the beginning (i.e. start over) of a new sentimental and sexual relation after widowhood or a divorce.

Study number 5: And last but not least, an erectile dysfunction in men could be the earlier symptom of an artery obstructive disease and should lead to an in-depth examination of arteries and blood pressure according to Dr John Ludlow, MD, urologist. Indeed the cause could come from two little arteries of the penis being clogged.
