The “DUH” Files (or, Tax Dollars at Work)

Happy days!

Not the show of course, but I do believe I said “Heeey” while testing a new prostate product.  No, no you read that correctly.  I am Dr. Tim, not Dr. TMI…

However, today I thought I might update you on some amazing studies brought to you by some amazing minds and of course funded by someone else.

1) When It Comes to Sex Partners, Men Prefer Younger Women

Bet you didn’t see that one coming.  Funded by the Academy of Finland and published in the journal “Evolutionary and Human Behavior.”  So, they studied around 12,000 people and discovered the following: Women typically preferred men around their age or older.  Men in their 20’s liked older women but after the age of 30 tended to prefer women in their 20’s for the rest of their life.  That’s really something.  I bet no one could every have guessed that.  Of course the younger women are more fertile and some think we evolved that way so that the human race would endure.  I’ll buy that.   In the end, it looks like women have the important decision about mate selection.  Women win.  Men follow.  Sexual behavior is controlled by the woman’s age preference, not his.

So men, pick up a doll from Doc Johnson.  She will be whatever you want her to be.

2) Alcoholic Beverages Make Men Smile

WOW!  Who knew?  Published in the journal “Clinical Psychology Science.”  They looked at over 700 social drinkers in their 20’s.  When the groups of men get together for some drinking, they tend to smile a lot.  But when women are present, not so much.    In fact, the study points out that men do the majority of their socializing when drinking.  Smiling becomes contagious when men are drinking with men, makes more able to open up and socialize.  The heavier the drinker, the more susceptible he is to smiling.  With women around, they have to maintain their manliness and be the biggest, baddest man they can.  Did anyone have a clue about this phenomenon?

Guys, lighten up!  Take a ride with a prostate massage.  Now that will make you smile!

3) Too Much Drinking May Harm Your Sperm!

OK, we all knew that too much drinking will affect your ability to “rise” to the occasion, but who knew about your sperm quality?  Published in BMJ (British Medical Journal) and later in “Sexually Transmitted Infections” by a group of scientists from Stanford, University of Southern Denmark and The Heard Clinic and Houston Methodist Hospital.  Well, they aren’t really sure, but heavy drinking seems to be associated with lower sperm counts and lower sperm quality.  You know, the waders, not the swimmers.  Men having five drinks a week had lower sperm attributes.  It really got significant if the men had 25+ drinks a week.  (For the study, one drink was defined as a single beer, a glass of wine or a shot of hard liquor.)

Interesting to note, testosterone rose with heavy drinking.  Think about it, that makes sense.  The first study was done with about 1200 Danish men.  The second study (up next) used about 1300 American men.

4) Too Much Drinking Can Lead to Cancer

That study showed that higher alcohol consumption made men more susceptible to a higher risk of contracting HPV (human papillomavirus.)  HPV can lead to head/neck cancer and penile/anal cancers in men.  In this study, one drink was defined as containing 14 grams of alcohol.  (US National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism)

Men who had at least one drink a day were 13% more likely to have any HPV type and 35% more likely to have cancer-related HPV.  Get too drunk, screw around without wrapping that rascal and you, my friend, are engaging in very risky behavior.  Why risk it?  Stay home with the Doc and really heat up your nights!

5) Soda Has Lots of Sugar

Yeah, I know you knew that.  You know that a 20 ounce bottle of regular soda , sports drink or fruit juice contains 250 calories and sixteen tablespoons of sugar.  But do you really knows what that means?  They did a little study  at Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health.  They posted signs in low-income, predominately black neighborhoods in Baltimore.  The signs explained very simply, if you drink a 20 soda, it will take 50 minutes of running or five miles of walking to burn it off.

Sales of soda dropped about six percent and sales of water rose roughly 4 percent.  WIN!

By the way, have you heard of Candiland by Doc Johnson?  Sweet, sweet products for lovemaking with NO SUGAR ADDED!  That’s right, get your freak on and enjoy!  There wasn’t a mention of how much intimate play was needed to burn off calories.  Oh well, I guess you will just have to keep doing it until you are satisfied…
