3 things you don’t know about sex

08 July 2014, 14:50

Abuja Even if you consider yourself a real stud or goddess in bed, there is always something to learn about taking a roll in the hay.

Blue balls

If you ever heard of a guy grossly complaining about having blue balls after a night of teasing that didn’t lead to a sweet release, he might not be kidding. Which makes it kind of more gross.

It’s possible for the scrotum to turn blue when a man has been aroused without relief for a long time, Sandor Gardos, a licensed sex therapist and founder of mypleasure.com, said.

That’s because all the blood is there, ready...suffocating the testicles and pushing out all the oxygen. Scary stuff, Women’s Health sketches out for us.

Wood morning to you

Men wake up with erections, we all (hopefully) know that. It's not because they are horndogs even in their sleep. Rather, it's because their testosterone levels peak early in the day, Gardos explains.

The man might not be psychologically turned on, though. Not that there isn’t a quick fix for that if you want to put it to use. But it’s usually in use for shorter periods than usual (also hopefully) as the high levels of testosterone makes men reach their “goals” quicker.

Strange fantasies

It seems that society’s willingness to let men run wild with their sexual desires while ladies have to keep them quiet has had a strange effect.

It turns out rape fantasies are quite common and popular with the ladies, Gloria Brame, Ph.D., a sex therapist based in Athens, Georgia in the US, said.

She went on to say that’s because rape fantasies pin the responsibility of the act on someone else, thus shifting the guilt over sex some women feel onto someone else.

Interesting to think about, but that is by no means a licence to step across boundaries, boys.
