Sex Laws

In the Mood for a Midday Quickie? A Swedish Lawmaker Pitches Paid Sex Breaks

Imagine a Monday morning meeting with your boss opening up the conversation by asking what the company could do to make employees happier and more productive. Then Steve from Accounting speaks up and suggests, “Well, we could offer an hour of paid leave for employees to have sex in the middle of the day.” You’d assume Steve was kidding, right? But what if your boss took him seriously? That’s essentially what’s happening in Sweden where one politician is proposing a new law that requires employers to offer employees a one-hour break for something other than lunch. It’s so obvious, it’s almost genius! Why didn’t anyone think of this before?

According to the paper The Local, Per-Erik Muskos, a city councilor in the town of Övertorneå, has a good reason why he presented a motion for paid sex leave. “There are studies that show sex is healthy,” he said. And he’s right. Plenty of studies show the emotional and health benefits of regular sex. The Swedes really seem to have their quality of life priorities right. We’re hoping this passes and sets a legal precedent. The world has lots of problems and maybe one good answer: way more sex.

What Happens When You Combine Drugs With Sex? Plus, Could Exercise Be Negatively Affecting Your Sex Life?

For many of us, sex and drugs go together like strawberries and chocolate. They’re both great on their own, but together they can be mind-blowing. However, we’d be naive if we didn’t consider how drugs can negatively affect one’s sex life. For instance, cocaine. This week for Hard Science, Debra W. Soh checks the data that matters on what coke does to your sex life. Hint: it’s no bueno.

According to findings from a new study published in Psychopharmacology, cocaine usage can lead to what researchers dubbed “sexual impatience.” Previous studies have found that cocaine users are more likely to have an STI and their reported rush to have sex suggests an explanation why: cokeheads don’t care if they have a condom. The study from Johns Hopkins University found that cocaine users were far more likely to have unprotected sex than wait until they had a condom. So, if you’re gonna blow lines, come prepared before you prepare to come.

For some more reading on sex and drugs, here’s an expert talking about how different drugs affect sex. For instance, stimulants like cocaine and crystal can dry you out, so make sure you have some lubricant handy. Check it for more tips.

While we’re talking about what affects your sex life, there’s new evidence that your workout at the gym might negatively affect your performance in bed. New data shows that exercise can actually lower a man’s libido. If you’re a gym junkie, you probably want to check this story.

Science Says…

Is Anxiety Why a Man Is a Premature Ejaculator? Short Answer: No

Don’t you hate it when you show up to a party way too early? It’s even worse when the party is in your pants and you come early. Why does this happen? Studies in the past suggested anxiety’s to blame. But now a longitudinal study from Finland, published in the Journal of Sex Research, overturns that conclusion.[Researchers found no link between anxiety and premature ejaculation. Back to the drawing board.

For now, if you have fears you’ll pop early, check this vid from sex instructor Adina Rivers, she and a giant teddy bear show you a bunch of positions that’ll help you last longer. The bear seems to be enjoying himself.

Sexology

A Unified Theory of Dick Pics, The Math of Sexy Lips and an Orgasm Injection for Women

For something so physical there sure is a lot of theory that surrounds and pervades sex. Scientists love to quantify attraction and empirically prove what it is that we desire. For instance, this study on which female lips men find most attractive. It considers how much a woman should surgically augment her lips to make them look sexier. But isn’t that a matter of personal taste? If you’re wondering, the study did find men prefer fuller lips.

At the other end of sex theory, here’s our resident sexpert Justin Lehmiller explaining a “grand unified theory for why men send dick pics”. As he often attempts to make clear to readers, sex is always complicated and our behaviors are motivated by many overlapping, interacting factors. But one factor does seem key: men overestimate a woman’s attraction.

Speaking of a woman’s pleasure, sometimes a fresh theory can lead to radical new products and procedures designed to enhance our sex lives. In this case, the theory is that women may need fresh blood to help them reliably reach climax. And that’s where this new “orgasm shot” comes in. Before you scoff, for some women who’d never experienced an orgasm, they did report enjoying one after receiving this injection. Or so the doctor claims. What’s his secret? He extracts a patient’s blood, spins it around in a centrifuge to isolate “platelet rich plasma,” which he then injects into the woman’s vagina. That treatment costs £1,000. But hey, can one put a price on an orgasm?

This Week In WTF?!

When Sexy Secrets Go Wrong

Sometimes secrecy, like danger, can make sex feel even more incredible. This is part of the appeal of cheating. But not all secrets are created the same. Are you any good at keeping a secret? Here’s a round-up some sexy stories that should’ve stayed secret, but of course, they didn’t. So, which is your favorite of these sexy secrets gone wrong:

A. Sex On A Motorcycle?

You better believe it. A couple got caught on video as they were having sex on a motorcycle. But the real question to ask is whose idea was it and how much convincing did it take? Like, whichever one convinced the other, they could have a really bright future selling horseshit to a jockey.

B. Two Cops, One Patrol Car

It happened in Rosario, Argentina. A few of you sports fans may know that’s where Lionel Messi is from. So, how did two cops get caught having sex in their patrol car? The male cop filmed himself getting pleasured by his female partner. And of course the video got out because that’s what sex tapes do.

C. Japanese Mob Boss Puts Out a Hit On Nurse for Botching His Dick Surgery

The headline says it all. Yakuza boss Satoru Nomura, head of the Kudo-kai syndicate, went in for surgery on his magic stick. And yes, it was for penis enlargement. Apparently, something went terribly wrong. As a result, later, a nurse was attacked on the street and stabbed. She survived. And thanks to the court case, now everyone knows about his tiny dick. Which is no way to keep a secret, and definitely makes the surgery a double fail.
