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.

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.

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!)

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!)

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!
