16 Wicked Sex Facts
Posted: Jul 20 2015
Burn, Baby, Burn!
During a half hour of vigorous sex, you can burn up to 200 calories. That’s about the equivalent to jogging a couple of miles and in my experience a lot more fun too.
The Average Penis
The typical penis size is 3.5 to 3.7 inches when flaccidand 5-5.7 when erect. I bet that’s smaller than you thought it would be, isn’t it?
Getting It On in Greek
According to statistics, the Greeks have more sex than any other nationality. Opa! I know where I’m going on my next vacation.
Every single day there are about 100 million acts of sexual intercourse. It’s kind of cool to think about sex facts like this in the bigger picture, but I still wonder how on earth they came up with that number.
Longest Lip Lock
The world record for the longest unbroken kiss is 31 hours 30 minutes and 30 seconds. I bet they needed a long break from each other, and a bit of lip balm, after that one.
A quarter of couples over the age of 75 are still doing the deed. I like sex facts like these because they keep hope alive for the next generation. If I have to break a hip in my old age, I hope it’s a sex injury!
Creatures of Pleasure
Bonobo chimps and dolphins are the only other animals besides humans that have sex for pleasure. They say chimps and dolphins are some of the smartest animals too, and this sex fact just really backs that up.
Beauty Is In The Lie of The Beholder
Telling a convincing lie to someone is harder when you find them sexually attractive. I sincerely hope I never have to tell a lie to Hugh Jackman.
Oral Pleasure Seekers
Do you know what humans, fish and porpoises have in common? They all have oral sex. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen some monkeys at the zoo doing it too, just on an anecdotal evidence level.
Men Don’t Size Up
Half of men think their penis is too small but 85% of women are satisfied with their partner’s size. I guess that really does go to show that it’s all about perspective.
The average amount of time spent kissing for a person in a lifetime is 20,160 minutes. That’s 336 hours, 14 days or 2 weeks. Honestly, this sex fact was a little surprising to me. I would think over the average lifetime it would be more, but maybe I just like to kiss. A lot.
A teaspoon of semen, for an average man who is healthy, contains about 300 million sperm. But it only takes one to fertilize an egg. I guess nature doesn’t want to miss the target.
In 2003 a pair of male penguins in the Central Park Zoo, who had been a couple for years, raised a baby penguin together. If that’s not a testament to love, I don’t know what is.
The average speed of ejaculation is 28 miles per hour. This is why oral sex must be done carefully. I’m not losing an eye.
The Black Widow
The black widow spider eats her mate during or after sex, and she can consume as many as 20 lovers in a day. That’s a one busy spider.
For all you computer nerds out there, let me speak a little of your language. A single sperm contains 37.5 MB of DNA information. One ejaculation represents a data transfer of 15,875 GB, equivalent to the combined capacity of 62 MacBook pro laptops. So, if I’m thinking about this correctly, there’s more computing power in sperm than it took to send men to the moon. Sex fact!
