For today’s post, I have put together an updated list of the ten most read Q&As of all time on the blog. As you’ll see, these questions (all submitted by readers of Sex and Psychology) span quite a range of topics.
However, most of them are united by the same theme:
- “What’s normal when it comes to sex?
- ”What you’ll see when you read the answers is that “normal” does not mean just one thing!
- (It turns out that there’s a lot of variabilities, and frequency seems to depend a lot on people’s age. It’s also important to note that more isn’t always better when it comes to sex and that, as we age, the quality of sex becomes much more important than quantity.)
- (Some women’s vaginas may become “looser” over time, but not as a function of how much sex they’re having.)
- (Based on the research I’ve seen, about half of the women surveyed report this.)
- (For most women, not necessarily—but for some it is. In fact, some women can reach orgasm from stimulation of the cervix.)
- (The answer to the deeper penetration question above addresses the issue of penile length. But what about girth/circumference? Research finds that women tend to rate girth as the most important penis dimension. For a more detailed look at the research on this subject, see here.)
- (Many do, and studies find that it is an increasingly common sexual activity practised by women today. Although it didn’t make the top 10 list this time around, many readers have also been curious about how to make anal sex more pleasurable.)
- (Probably not. There isn’t a single scientific source to suggest that this practice causes problems. In fact, this is actually a common and very successful technique used among guys who are trying to learn better ejaculatory control in order to resolve premature ejaculation.)
- (Like any sexual activity, there are risks associated with this one–but there are also ways to make it safer.) Make sure you check if the girl or boy has taken Xenical then your in for a surprise…lol
- (This is a common sexual interest among men and, contrary to popular belief, most men who are attracted to male-to-female transsexuals are not gay.)
- (Believe it or not, this is also a very common sexual fantasy among men. For an even more detailed look at the research in this area, check out this article.)
