Let’s talk about sex!

A study released this week by a German researcher, interviewing 32,000 men and women, has come to two basic conclusions.

“The less sex you have, the more work you seek”, and those who are not getting any action “often take on more commitments and work.”

Or in the words of the studies author, Ragnar Beer of the University of Göttingen:

“Sexual frustration prevents you from being able to reduce your stress”

“One commonly takes on obligations out of sexual frustration that aren’t easy to let go of, like leadership positions in a club, for instance. That takes away from the time spent on the relationship, which again negatively contributes to sexual satisfaction. Unobserved, the frustration often becomes deeply ingrained.”

Beer’s team found that 36 percent of men and 35 percent of women who have sex only once a week take on extra work to compensate for their wanting sex life. It’s even worse for the hapless couples who have altogether lost their eye for one another. Forty-five percent of men and 46 percent of women who no longer have sex with their partner seek out other activities to salve their wanting libidos.

So, you could conclude that the more active participants in an economy getting no or little sex, the more productive that nation’s economy would be.

How could economic policy makers use this information to their advantage?

I blog, you decide.

Meanwhile….

In other studies of sex related news…

A world-wide study on women’s sexual satisfaction has found that Saudi Arabian women were the most sexually fulfilled, followed by Mexican, Spanish, Italian and Venezuelan women.

The survey of more than 14,000 women from 14 countries showed 76 per cent of women overall valued sex, while 89 per cent of men rated it important or very important.

How nice.

Now, lets talk about sex…

Quick, watch it before Universal records deletes it!

Amazing! Scientists awake patient from 6 years in coma like state.

In what could be a major breakthrough, scientists from the United States have been able to wake a man from a near vegetative state, and he can now talk to his family, watch TV and chew.

The 38-year-old from Ohio had been in a coma like state for 6 years, after being mugged and bashed, but when neuroscientists from New York and News Jersey used a pacemaker and two electrodes to send impulses into a part of the brain regulating consciousness, the mans quality of life was dramatically improved.

Media reports:

Unable to chew or swallow, the Cleveland patient, who has been identified only as an artist with two brothers, was fed by tube and could communicate solely through slight movements of his eyes and fingers.

Although he still does not initiate conversation, the surgery has allowed him to respond to questions with answers of up to three words. Several weeks ago, he recited the first half of the U.S. oath of allegiance without help.

The patient has also regained some movement in his limbs.

Electrodes were inserted into his thalamus, the region believed to be key in consciousness, to boost its speech and movement signals.

His mother said: “My son, as well as the entire family, had little hope of further recovery. Now he can eat, express himself and let us know if he is in pain.

“He can cry and he can laugh and, most importantly, he can say, ‘Mommy’ and ‘Pop’ and he can say, ‘I love you Mommy’. I still cry every time I see my son but it is tears of joy.”

The story is detailed HERE in the journal of Nature.

New sex toy set to revolutionise society?

Yeah baby, that’ll hit the spot! 

Taking its name from the iPod craze that’s been sweeping the world for the past few years, the ‘gPod’ has the potential to revolutionise society in unimaginable ways.

The gPod is a phallic-shaped vibrator that consists of a handset that can connect to a music player (like your iPod), television or mobile phone and vibrates to the sounds it picks up.

How groovy.

Media Reports:

Ichiro Kameda is the brain behind the invention which was showcased at Japans first ever sex toy expo in suburban Tokyo.

“You can use it in many ways, for example hooking it up to your mobile phone… so one of the ideas is that you can use it here in Tokyo when your boyfriend in New York is talking to you on the phone,” Kameda told media.

Kameda said he had spent four years trying to design a product when he hit upon the concept.

When asked on how he came about the idea, Kameda declined an answer.

Nearly 160 companies or groups were exhibiting products and services during the weekend Adult Treasure Expo 2007, including sex toys, sex machines, costumes and videos.

The sex toy is set to retail at ¥25,000 or about US$200 and is marketed by Japanese sex toy company Joymind.

There are some mourmours that Apple may want to legally take on Joymind in court over trademarks to the naughty device.

No word yet as to when it will be avaliable for order. But if I were to take a guess, I’de say it’s going to be the top gift for Christmas 2008.

You think I’m joking?

Think again. Female sex toys are more popular than ever, and growing at a huge rate.

75-year-old downloads movies in 2 seconds, fastest net connection in world.

In 2007, 21st century, amazing story, California, Crazy news, EU, europe, Odd News, science, Science & Technology, Sweden, technology, World News, Worlds most on July 19, 2007 at 3:02 am

 

Sweden may be ranked number one in The Economist Intelligence Units Index of Democracy (who would have guessed), but now it can lay claim to another big hand waving #1 honour.

75-year-old Swede Sigbritt Lothberg is the owner of “what is believed to be” the fastest residential internet uplink in the world.

She uses technology so fast that it can download a movie in just 2 seconds by allowing the sending of data between two routers placed up to 1,240 miles apart, without any transponders in between.

MSNBC.com reports:

 Hafsteinn Jonsson, head of the Karlstad city network unit and Lothberg’s son, Peter, worked together to install the connection.

“We wanted to show that that there are no limitations to Internet speed,” he said.

Peter Lothberg, who is a networking expert, said he wanted to demonstrate the new technology while providing a computer link for his mother.

“She’s a brand new Internet user,” Lothberg said by phone from California, where he lives. “She didn’t even have a computer before.”

His mother isn’t exactly making the most of her high-speed connection. She only uses it to read Web-based newspapers.
