Women or, I love you, stay healthy!

I’m baaack!

Today is February 3rd, or Wear Red Day promoting heart health for women.  Serious stuff!  Now you can skip my rambling and go to http://www.fda.gov/ForConsumers/ByAudience/ForWomen/WomensHealthTopics/ucm117974.htm and check it out for yourself.

For your convenience, you can find the information in 18 different languages here: http://www.fda.gov/ForConsumers/ByAudience/ForWomen/FreePublications/ucm126287.htm

There are four basic tenets:

  1. Eat a heart healthy diet.  Basically low salt/sodium, limit trans fats and cut back on sugar.  Stuff we all know how to do, but rarely practice.  (Guilty!)
  2. Manage your health conditions.  If you have high cholesterol, blood pressure, diabetic problems.  Get on the wagon and take care of them.  These can lead to heart problems.  Take your medications and follow your doctor’s advice.
  3. Get the facts about aspirin.  Taking a daily aspirin for preventing heart attacks and strokes is not right for everyone.  So talk to your doctor.  That way you can dial in the appropriate dosage, etc.  And remember to remind them of any other medications you are taking.  I know your doctor should know, but we cannot remember everything all the time.
  4. Know the signs of a heart attack.  Men and women can have different symptoms, so be sure you go over the links I posted above.  Also, check out this video that Elizabeth Banks did a few years ago.  She had a heart attack in real life.  https://youtu.be/t7wmPWTnDbE

Fine.  That’s under your chest.  Now let’s go downstairs.  (I am great at foreplay!)

Pelvic Inflammatory Disease: An estimated 2.5 million women have an often symptomless infection of the urinary tract that can lead to infertility and lasting abdominal pain.  The infection can be cured however, if left untreated long enough, the physical damage may be permanent.  PID is a complication of a previous sexually transmitted disease or STD.  https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/66/wr/mm6603a3.htm

Yes, we are talking about everybody’s friends chlamydia and gonorrhea.  Around 1.5 million cases of chlamydia and 400,000 cases of gonorrhea were reported in 2015.  That’s reported, and we know that not everyone reports their health situations.  Here’s the thing: these diseases often do not show symptoms and can go undiagnosed and untreated.  Now if that leads to PID:

“Pelvic inflammatory disease symptoms may include persistent abdominal pain, fever, abnormal vaginal discharge, or pain or bleeding during sexual intercourse.  PID poses long-term hazards such as infertility, chronic pelvic pain and ectopic pregnancy. Ectopic pregnancies occur when an embryo implants in the fallopian tube instead of the uterus.

No single test can diagnose PID, so doctors often rely on symptom reporting. But PID often doesn’t cause symptoms. “That’s one of the scariest things because you may not know it’s even happening,” she said.”  https://medlineplus.gov/news/fullstory_163399.html

Your background doesn’t matter.  If you are sexually active, get tested every year or as often as your insurance will pay for it.  (Adult actors test every month!)  Because the more active you are with different partners, the bigger your risk.  Make sure that use condoms or other barrier protections.  It is a rough world out there.

So that was a very romantic and sexy return for Quantum Cogitation.  But ladies, take care of yourselves.  You cannot make a difference if you are not around.  Plus, I still think I have a shot with you!  Are you a beaver?  Cuz, Dam!

I will be back more often so please keep sending those cards, letters, photos and videos coming.

Sexting (or, check your phone!)

Sexting is awesome!  Fun, titillating and gives me a reason to not hate having a smartphone.

However, it is also fraught with danger, especially for children.  But for adults, a recent study shows so much benefit from nasty texts.

http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/news/fullstory_154019.html

88% of the folks in the survey admitted to texting.  Almost nine out of ten.  That is a whole lot of data usage.  And it turns out that women tend to send sexts instead of receiving them.  Food for thought?  And that almost 75% of the respondents exchanged sexts with a committed partner.  Warms the heart.  As mentioned in the article, perhaps that is one way couples can talk about sex if a face-to-face discussion would be too intense for them.  I am certainly in favor for anything that improves communication between partners.  With luck, sexting fantasies can make their way into the bedroom, boardroom or even the garage!

As stated in the article, “But greater sexting frequency was linked to greater sexual satisfaction among both men and women, particularly when sexters were in a relationship, the survey found. In fact, with the exception of those who said they were in a “very committed” relationship, couples who sexted more often were more likely to say they were satisfied with their relationship. For those in very committed relationships, sexting made no difference in sexual satisfaction, the study found.

By contrast, sexting had little effect on sexual satisfaction for people who weren’t in relationships. Twenty-six percent of the group described themselves as single, the survey found.”

So for better or for worse, sexting is here to stay.

So how do you feel about sexting?  Dr Tim certainly enjoys it.  And knowing that those sexts are out there in the cyber universe doesn’t bother me in the least.  Oh my goodness, the government might discover that I enjoy sex!  Heavens, I feel that I may swoon.  And for those of us that work too much and play too little, it seems as that is as close to “afternoon delight” as most of us get these days.  In fact, perhaps the mighty Doc Johnson could help make your sexts a little sweeter to your sweetie.

Imagine sending a little something using some of these items:

2301_15_BX 2301_18_BX 2301_20_BU 8125_17_BX 8125_20_BX

That will light up their eyes and fire that devious imagination.  But then that is probably why you sent them a sext in the first place!  Have fun, win awards and as always, keep sending in those naughty sexts and videos.  Dr Tim loves each and every one of you!

 

Have a Cup of Joe (or, Literally, Have Cup of Joe!)

Today’s missive from the bedroom comes to us from the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston.

Their study discovered that men who consume more caffeine have a lower risk of erectile dysfunction.  It worked for obese, overweight and hypertensive men too.  (Except diabetics, they are fucked!)

Here you go, check it out: http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0123547

The US Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee’s position is that drinking 3-5 cups of coffee per day reduces the risk of type-2 diabetes and heart disease.  Those are two of the biggest baddies related to your not being able to perform.

So how much java do we need?  (Programmers need not reply.)  The magic number to reduce the possibility of impotence is 2-3 cups per day.  Now they did take all the normal sources of caffeine into account including coffee, tea, soda and even sports drinks.  No mention of energy drinks though, must have been an oversight.  Here are how the numbers break down:

Control Group – 0-7 mg of caffeine daily

Moderate Drinkers – 85-170 mg – 42% less chance of erectile dysfunction

Heavy Drinkers – 171-303 mg – 39% less chance of erectile dysfunction

Bear in mind that a good cup of coffee (K-Cup) has about 120 mg in 8 fluid ounces.  If you want to check lots of stuff about caffeine, go to one of my favorite websites http://www.caffeineinformer.com/

It will fill you in on the amount of caffeine in food and drinks, but best of all, click on the tab for caffeine calculator.  You type in your favorite drink, your weight and it will tell you how much you can safely drink (based of caffeine content) and also give you the amount you would have to consume for the caffeine to kill you!  Loads of laughs.

Here is how they think it works: The caffeine relaxes certain muscles and arteries in the penis which enhances your ability to have an erection by increasing blood flow.  So when you are clubbing, throw back some shots of espresso.  You’ll be sober, hard and ready for action.

Benefits are three-fold;

You have an excuse to drink up!  It’s not that you want the caffeine, you’re doing it for her!

You become a marathon sled dog!  No more one and done for you.

You probably won’t fall asleep right after coitus.  That may not be a benefit, but it works for her.

Since you’re up, you might as well use some great Doc Johnson products.  The two of you will need to lay in a stock of lubricant, strokers and dildos.  Good for those long session either together or by yourself.  And do we have some cool stuff for you.

That's the big one too!

That’s the big one too!

Millenials Falling Behind (or, Try Harder D*mmit!)

I didn’t want to say “I told you so,” but…

I told you so.  A study out of San Diego State University tells us that Millenials have fewer life-time sexual partners than either the Gen-Xers or the Baby Boomers.  In fact, Gen-X can’t keep up with the Boomers.

Lead author, Jean Twenge, says that there is a huge shift going on in sexual attitudes and behaviors.  This study looked at almost 57,000 people so here is the break-down:

Years Born            Classification                       Average # of sexual partners in a lifetime

1900-1927             Greatest Generation           3

1928-1945              Silent Generation               5

1946-1964              Baby Boomers                    12

1965-1980              Generation X                      10

1980-2004             Millenials                            8

2005-2015             Homeland Generation (designated by the White House https://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/docs/millennials_report.pdf)

Now I cannot vouch for those statistics.  I am a Boomer and twelve?  That was my first week in college!  But then old Dr Tim has always been a caring, sharing free love kinda guy.

Things to account for the lower number of sexual partners lists such things as HIV, AIDS and utilizing Friends with Benefits rather than going home with strangers.  (In my day, sex was how you made friends.)

On the other hand, the study says that the younger generations, while not getting as much as Moms and Pops, are more tolerant and accepting of premarital sex and same-sex relationships.  The percentage of people who said that premarital sex “was not wrong at all” rose from 13% in 1990 to 58% in 2012.  Likewise same-sex relationships rose in approval from 13% to 44%.  Women tended to be more tolerant of homosexuality, but more conservative about premarital sex.  Guess how the men responded…

We’ve come a long way baby, but we still have a long way to go.

You can read the whole article in the May 5 issue of the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior.  (Source: Jean Twenge, Ph.D., professor of psychology, San Diego State University; May 5, 2015, Archives of Sexual Behavior)

Ask the Doc (or, Shameless Plug!)

Greetings oh mighty tantric warriors!

Today I want to clue you in on a little secret.  Doc Johnson has a radio show!

Sadly it does not star yours truly, but is instead helmed by Chad and Sunny.

You never know what will happen!

You never know what will happen!

These two fun folks are the Creative Director and Head of Marketing, respectively.  And they are a blast.  Sweet, sexy, nasty and knowledgable.  (You decide whom is which.) They talk about sex stuff, interview experts, adult stars and make some cute videos.  Oh, they also take phone comments.  (You can hear Dr Tim on at least one show.  Hint: pubic hair…)

So, let the links begin:

His and Hers (or, Put Them All Together…)

Presented for your approval: Two studies from the Journal of Sexual Medicine.

1. Exercise helps men’s sex life.

2. Sleep helps increase feminine arousal.

Let’s see by show of hands who wasn’t aware of these findings.  Only a few of you?  Good.

Men: Get off your ass and exercise.  Those with 2 or more hours of strenuous exercise, 3.5 hours of moderate exercise or 6 hours of light exercise a week more easily attained erections, stayed hard longer, had better orgasms and more frequent sexual activity.  Hmm, who would have thought that having a toned, fit body increased your sex life?

Women: Apparently each extra hour of sleep you gets may increase the likelihood of sex by 14% the next day.  A well-rested woman is a sexy woman indeed.  She feels it, you feel it and everyone gets happy.  Who knew?  I’ve been putting women to sleep in bed for years and never knew it was increasing my chances.  Guys, if she is sleeping, let her sleep!  You will probably get lucky in the morning.

But what chaps my hide is that I have to bust ass on the stair master while she gets to keep snoozing.  Next thing they’ll tell me is that beef jerky is not an aphrodisiac.  Though I find a spicy dinner puts a warmth in the lower belly that ignites the flame.

Work out, get enough sleep and eat good healthy stuff.  Do I really need to be telling you any of this?  (Oh yeah, buy stuff from Doc Johnson.  Daddy needs some Cajun alligator jerky!)

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:
