This Week in Sex: Oral, Internet and Statistics:

Porn on the Internet

So, how much porn is on the internet exactly? There’s no denying the amount must be colossal since pornography is touted as one of the major game changers in technology. One often-quoted statistic for this question is somewhere around 37 percent, but one spokesperson for the BBC believes that stat is way off due to the fact that “Ninety percent of all the data the human race has ever produced has been generated in the past two years” thanks to social media, smartphones and larger data projects. With this in mind, new research leads us to believe that just four percent of the most frequented websites in the world are porn. Read the rest of this fascinating research on BBC.co.uk.

Giving girls Oral Sex

The conversation about oral sex can be one-sided. There’s a lot of talk about blowjobs, but there’s rarely discussion about performing oral sex on women. Even the term “eating out” seems more vulgar than blowjob, doesn’t it? Just because it doesn’t come up in conversation too often doesn’t mean it’s not happening: one recent study has shown that one of the many reasons men perform oral sex on their partners is “to minimize the risk of their partner’s infidelity by increasing her relationship satisfaction." Say what? Read the rest of the research on msn.com.

Sex in the Starlight

Is there a scientific reason why we’re all having sex before bed? (Not collectively, of course; you’re not missing anything.) There are a lot of factors that play into not having sex in the early morning: you’re probably too exhausted to have sex before work, you haven’t brushed your teeth yet and you look like a terrifying mountain man version of yourself. And surprisingly, those factors usually trump most urges you feel in the morning. "I concluded that this choice of time is simply due to convenience—that is, that's the time when the two people are in bed and lying close together, so they go ahead and have sex.” Read the rest of the study on io9.com.

Thinking about Sex every Seven Sex-onds

You know that obviously bogus sex fact that men think about sex every seven seconds? Well, the concept is way off from reality. One researcher at Duke University has found that people “over-estimate how much time they spend thinking about sex, as well as how often they have it” largely due to applying gender stereotypes. The research also suggested that those who were more positive believed that they were better at sex and were having it more than they actually were.
