This Week in Sex: 365 Days of Sex, Real Dolls & Tania Funes:

Sex throughout the years

Google Trends can tell you a lot about how our culture reacts to major news stories. Whether it’s a spike in “Dick pics” after Antony Weiner’s latest sexting scandal or anytime the rumor mill starts churning about the latest celebrity posing nude for Playboy, you’re not the only one giving in to your curiosity by Googling. Nerve recently made some really interesting sexual predictions utilizing Google Books’ Ngram (basically Google Trends for books) to “figure out that blow jobs weren’t a thing before 1970 and ‘hooking up’ is surprisingly less popular than some other sex terms.” We were surprised to read that “fuck” has blown “sleep with” out of the water from 1977 on.

Or that there are stories that date back to 8 A.D. of a man who sculpted himself a woman out of ivory? Medicalinsurance.org has created a handy infographic on the History of Sex Dolls that is surprisingly interesting. Check it out on kinkly.com

Have you ever wondered what it would be like (or if it’s even possible) to have sex every day for an entire year? Blogger Brittany Gibbons took it upon herself to test out this saucy experiment and wrote about it for Huffington Post. “The fact is, I am horrible at intimacy,” writes Gibbons. “I come from a family of non-huggers and I sometimes hate my body, so yeah, recipe for Temple Grandin hug machine. My husband is gorgeous and very, very sexy, but the issues we were having in the sack were all me. I could not shut my insecurity off, and sex quickly became a really anxiety-inducing experience that went one of two ways.” So, how did it end? Read on to find out: huffingtonpost.com

Toxic relationship red flags

This link has been making the rounds this week; if you haven’t read Mark Manson’s “6 Toxic Relationship Habits Most People Think Are Normal”do yourself a favor and read it now. “We worship romantic love—you know, that dizzying and irrational romantic love that somehow finds breaking china plates on the wall in a fit of tears somewhat endearing—and scoff at practicality or unconventional sexualities,” Manson writes. “Men and women are raised to objectify each other and to objectify the relationships they’re in…And for most of us, mom and dad surely weren’t the best examples either.” Read the six common trends in harmful relationships here: markmanson.net
