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!

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)

Doc Johnson – We have the toys and body glides for every generation.  You need ’em, we got ’em.  And we never judge.  (We just want to hold the camcorder.)   How you handle your sex life is your business and our pleasure.  Or rather, your pleasure and our business.

We don’t even mind if you hipsters only use our products ironically.

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…

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!

 

See You Next Tuesday!

Cunt.

There it is, right out in front of everyone.  Now, it “cunt” a good word or a bad word?  There are examples of both.

Good: I’d call you a cunt, but you don’t have the depth or warmth.

Bad: A cunt is a life support system for a pussy.

Discuss.

 

Dr. Tim loves cunts.  I don’t care if you call them vaginas, pussies, beavers, bearded clams, hot pockets, twats or purses.  No muff too tough!  That’s my motto.

Now this doesn’t have anything to do with the topics, but spell check wanted me to change pussies to Aussies.  What the heck!  I love them too!

And for all your sexual vaginal needs, buy Doc Johnson Products.  Because we think about your pussy all day!
