Check it out and leave me some comments.  We will discuss…

 

Can you Cum? (or, Slamma Jamma!)

Here is a topic that is near and dear to my heart: Orgasms.  I’ve been studying them for years.  Not clinically, but let’s just say that I have completed years of informal study.  (Mostly my own, sadly.)

Presented for your evaluation: In the August 18, 2014 issue of The Journal of Sexual Medicine, a study was conducted on the rate of orgasms achieved with a regular partner.  The results may or may not startle you.

Men (Gay or Straight) – 75% of the time

Women (Lesbian) – 75 % of the time

Women (Straight) – 63% of the time.

So what’s the deal?  Nobody knows.  Although there is some very interesting data presented.  The difference between straight and gay women is particularly significant.  One of the study leaders implied that perhaps penetrative sex is more crucial to straight women than for gay women.  Not sure how I feel about that.  It seems that our perceptions of sex, what it is versus what we think it should be causes many of our problems.  Everyone has an idea of the perfect sexual encounter.  And if sex does not happen that way, perhaps orgasm becomes elusive.

Also, the research brings up a common complaint.  There needs to be better communication between partners.  Here is a quote from the study about heterosexual partners: “The most successful means of increasing satisfaction has always been increased communication and attentiveness to the partner’s responsiveness,” Lloyd said. In other words, talk and pay attention.

Well, yeah.  That goes for pretty much everybody.  Notice how your partner is reacting and adjust accordingly.  One clue is when she says. “Oh yeah, right there!”  If she says that, keep doing exactly what you are doing.  Make it good.  Make it epic!

Talk about sex.  Experiment.  It takes a lot of work to develop trust between partners.  Who knows, maybe she needs some additional stimulation or perhaps a good vibrator.  Now where can you find something like that?  That’s right, DOC JOHNSON!  Take a trip to your local sex toy emporium or go online.  Doc Johnson has tons of toys, lubricants and implements of mass pleasure.  Collect them all and trade them with your friends!

Now I have added a link to a website that will give you more information, but let’s end on another quote.

“Satisfaction is different from orgasm — many women can be sexually satisfied without orgasm,” Lloyd said. “We can’t infer that there are legions of unsatisfied heterosexual women because of this study. We’d have to ask them.”

If you need me, I will be out in the field conducting research…

Summer Sex (or, Pass the BBQ Sauce!)

Summertime and the living is easy!

Oh the sights, sounds and smells of summer.  Scantily clothed people, moans through the screens and the sweet smell of BBQ wafting through the air.  Now I know that there is a big divide between charcoal and propane users, however that is not our focus today.

We’re talking BBQ Sex!  If you think about it, BBQ is quite a bit like sexual smorgasbord.  It has everything for oral, anal and kink.  A little back story: While working at my desk this morning my gaze wandered over to my box of Altoids.  Many of you are familiar with those “curiously strong mints” and their many uses in sexual matters.  Well, thinking how nice they are after having a potent lunch, I thought about BBQ.  And if this has never happened to you, sorry but many has been the time when my partner and I have been enjoying grilled ribs with corn on the cob that bones have been thrown to the side, mouths rush together with searching tongues and all fun breaks loose!  Nobody worries about garlic breath then, do they?

Marinades are like mental foreplay.  They start by soaking things with spices and herbs in preparation of sizzling action.  Mental foreplay is usually best when like marinading, it takes place overnight.  That gives everyone/thing time to prepare and the hunger grows.  Antici………..

Pation.

Physical foreplay is next.  Start heating up your grill.  So sweet when your meat slides into something firecracker hot.  Remind me to send a card to my first wife, she had the hottest I ever experienced.  Listen to that meat sizzle.  Smells so good.  Sounds so good.  Can’t wait to put it in your mouth.  So let’s do side dishes.

OK, this may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I knew a fine lady who could butter the corn with her tongue.  Yes, instead of a knife she used her tongue covered in butter.  Sometimes she would use her lips to make sure the butter was spread evenly.  😉  This works equally on all veggies.  Asparagus and oh what she could do with roasted potatoes.  By this time your BBQ sauce is getting hot and the meat is ready to be turned.  I know you want to flip it as many times as possible, but patience grasshopper.  Good BBQ takes time, go low and slow.

Time to eat!  Maybe you started by tossing some salad.  Love tossing salad!  Even with dressing already on it.  Dig in!  Enjoy those grilled potatoes and corn.  The ribs are so good that the meat just falls into your mouth and that sauce is bone-sucking good.  Always swallow the sauce.

Feel that warmth in your belly?  It’s getting good now.  Maybe some fresh strawberries (Oxnard strawberries are the best!) and fresh whipped cream.  Lick the cream and enjoy that firm, red berry.

Screw it!  Toss the food and grab your partner!  Make creative use of the BBQ tools.  That spatula is great for spanking.  Drive that summer experience home and head for the pool!

Amazing what happens in that pool.  Right Elaine?  Enjoy your summer, enjoy the outdoors and take your fine Doc Johnson sex toys and lubes with you!  Oh, we don’t sell Altoids, but try these fine mints which are available at your favorite store.

Sex Stuff 101 (or take a chance)

So there I was, reading the National Institute of Health updates and saw a bit about Healthy Sexuality.  You know me, I clicked the link which took me to a video put out by the American Society of Reproductive Medicine.  Nice website and great videos that cover so many of the basic questions people have about sexuality.

Remember: This site is about the mechanics of sex and while they have passing mentions of sexualities other that heterosexuality, it is about how our bits work for reproduction.  There is a lot about infertility.

But their videos about sexual health, sexual problems and healthy sexuality are certainly worth a look.  Here is a link right to the videos: http://reproductivefacts.org/Full_Length_Patient_Education_Videos/

Copy and paste if your browser won’t let you click it.

Because while we at Doc Johnson love all of the fun and games, we want you to be happy, healthy and loving your life.  (And buy all of your toys/lubes from us!)

Lab-Grown Vaginas

What a great week for science!

There was a follow-up article in The Lancet this month about the success of lab-grown vaginas.  Yes, you read that correctly.

Seems there is a rather rare (or so we hope) birth defect where females are born without complete genital formation.  One interview I read was with a woman who was born without a vaginal canal.  Pretty serious stuff.  Not only does it make life difficult in general, but it could mess with your head too.

Doctors took cells from the patients, created the new tissue and grafted it back onto their bodies.  This was pure science fiction stuff back when I was a baby scientist.  One study dealt with women suffering from Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser syndrome, a genetic condition where the women’s vagina and/or uterus is either underdeveloped or absent.  They harvested muscle and epithelial cells via a biopsy of their genitals.  (Epithelial cells line the body cavities and can release fluid and feel sensations.)  Grew the tissue that was fastened to a biodegradable scaffold which was hand-sewn into a vagina.  Then the surgeons created a canal in the patient’s pelvis and stitched the scaffold into place on their reproductive systems.

The body then forms nerves and blood vessels into the graft and gradually replaced the scaffold with a permanent functioning organ.  This was done between 2005 and 2008.  Annual check-ups show that the lab-grown vaginas and extremely similar to natural tissue in form and function.  Even the doctors could barely tell where the natural tissue ended and the graft began!  The women also tested normal in all areas of sexual function which includes desire, arousal, lubrication, orgasm and sexual satisfaction.

Isn’t that cool?  The doctors are now looking into using the same technique for women with cancer or have been injured in accidents.  Anyone needing vaginal reconstruction.

More amazing efforts on the part of science and medicine.  In an age where science is “evil,” I’m proud to be a scientist.

Now if they could just get 6-7 inch penis enlargement working…

Until that happens, Doc Johnson does have some nice penis extensions.  Like this wonderful toy:

Back to Basics (Or, Get down and give me 20!)

Did you ever want to be a marathon sled dog in the sack?  Of course you did.  We all did.  There is hope.

There was a presentation of a small study at the European Congress of Urology in Stockholm recently.  Turns out that there may be something you can do in the privacy of your own home to increase your stamina in bed.  Exercise.  Yep, exercise.

In the study were 40 men, aged 19-46, with lifelong premature ejaculation.  They followed a 12 week program of exercising their floor pelvic muscles.  And guess what happened.

After the three months, the period of time to reach ejaculation increased from 32 seconds to 2.5 minutes!  That is astounding.  That gave them 4.6 times longer to enjoy lovemaking with their significant other.

Think about that for a second.  These men went from your basic “in-out-done” to a much more intimate sexual relationship.  One where there was time to gaze into eyes, call out names several times or re-weave their hair from behind.  Can you imagine the psychological impact of this?

Think of the increase in self-confidence.  That man can now enjoy his life better, improve his relationship, get a raise and be who he always thought he could be.  And that is a d*mn sexy trait in men.

You see, if someone could ease one of their biggest disappointments in life, the world opens up to him.  Now pelvic floor exercises have been used to improve incontinence in men for years.  Especially after prostate surgery.  But they had never really tried them for premature ejaculation, well, not for anyone that suffered from it for a long time.  Great stuff.

I certainly hope when they publish and can run larger studies that this will hold true.

Now Doc Johnson, amazing company that it is, cannot help you exercise.  You gotta do that on your own buddy.  However, when you are not in the gym, we can help delay your premature ejaculation as well.

These are what the FDA calls “Male Genital Desensitizers.”  Using benzocaine, it will decrease the amount of stimulation you feel through your penis.  That should really help you out in the interim.

Just apply to the underside of the head of your penis, wait a second or two, then proceed with your business.  I don’t care who you are sticking it to, but hopefully this will make the encounter more fun for both of you.

Here are a couple links about how you can start doing these exercises today:

Remember kids, stay in school and the gym!  And keep those cards, letters, naughty pictures and videos coming in!

 

Automatic Orgasm (Or, Ring My Chimes!)

How I love when science moves towards filling our expectations.  I mean, sure it is 2014 and I don’t have a flying car yet, but this is almost as good.

Seems that scientists in the US have patented an implant that would give women an orgasm at the touch of a button.  I know, right?  There is a lot of orgasmic dysfunction out there in the world and many women have problems reaching climax.  Any number of issues can cause this problem.  One of them, apparently, is that with similar physical responses women can confuse arousal with fear which makes them want to avoid the situation.  Therapy is available, but guess what, Valium can delay orgasm.  Who knew?  We could talk about the causes of orgasmic dysfunction until the cows come home and still not have scratched the surface.

So let’s move on to the discovery.  A North Carolina surgeon, Stuart Meloy, got the idea when he was performing a spinal pain-relief operation on a woman.  The patient stays alert during the operation so that the surgeon can plant the electrodes in the best position.  Apparently he found her sweet spot as she orgasmed on the operating table.  Clinical trails should begin later this year.

Dr. Meloy began working with Medtronic and developed the device.  Right now, it is just smaller than a pack of cigarettes and would be implanted in the buttocks.  Then you get a nifty remote to trigger it.  This is just as invasive as getting a pacemaker, so they would like to limit it to extreme cases.

Like that’s going to happen.  He also wants to program it to limit how much it can be used.  Not gonna happen either.  If it is successful, they will become as popular as breast implants.  Everyone is going to want one.  I imagine as time goes on, the device will get smaller and smaller and be much easier to obtain.  Who wouldn’t want Orgasms on Tap?  And can you imagine unending multiple orgasms?  Some women will never get out of bed again!

They haven’t tested it on men yet, but expect similar results.

What do you think?  Aid or the end of humanity?  Everyone should have orgasms, but they are more fun together.  Let’s keep hooking up people!  And while you are doing that, I will be trying to figure out how to get Doc Johnson’s name on that thing.  Or at least the universal remote…

Now’s where my flying car?
