Does Watching Porn Make You Stupid?

F2_jordy_porn_550Poor Jordy.

Something about this sets off my bullshit detector, but I’m no scientist. However, I do know that most guys watch porn or at least have at one time or another. It’s hard to find statistics without dredging up a bunch of crap from the usual purveyors of moral outrage, but what little I could find suggested between 70% and 77% of American men watch porn. (and I bet a healthy slice of the one’s who say then don’t are lying.)

Anyway, this reminds me of all of the anti-masturbation stuff people used to believe… Wait. Used to? Forgot about this.

Researchers found less grey matter in the brains of men who watched large amounts of sexually explicit material, according to a new study.

The research, which appears in the journal JAMA Psychiatry, could not determine if porn actually caused the brain to shrink however, and the authors called for additional study on the topic.

LiveScience Asks: What Is Sodomy?


For something that so many cultural conservatives obsess over, there’s surprisingly little agreement over what constitutes sodomy. As it turns out, if you and your partner have sex on state lines, you might be committing a crime depending on what side of the border you do what. (Want to be extra sure? Pick up a copy of The Thrifty Traveler’s Guide to Sodomy Across The Land: An Activity and Coloring Book at your nearest Stuckey’s roadside convenience store before you go. Try the pecan logs!)

Not sure why this is exploration of sodomy laws is at LiveScience, but hey, this is a great chance to drag out this clip from Hair – an album that everyone’s mom and dad had when I was a kid. (Hopefully it’s just old enough to be creepy and nonsensical to you millennials.)

Perhaps surprisingly, there is no universal definition for sodomy, at least in the eyes of U.S.

Cleopatra’s Sex Toys, Oil Oil Lube, and Blow-Up Women For The Troops

The REAL island of Misfit Toys.

The REAL island of Misfit Toys.

Interesting round-up of sex facts over at YourTango includes notes on the ancient world’s favorite lube, Cleopatra’s dildos, and more.

As we’ve already covered, sex toys are really mainstream. No longer something you can only find in creepy back alley joints usually run by even creepier men, sex toys can now be found sitting pretty next to the condoms and lube in your favorite drug store. Not too shabby, eh?

But now with 3D printing on the horizon (I know; it’s news to me, too), if you can print your own sex toy at home, will that be the end to an industry? And more importantly would you even print your own sex toy?

Before we totally jump the gun on this, and start imagining the perfect vibrator that we’d create and print out, let’s take a look at a brief history of sex toys.

Behind the Seventies Science Experiment That Studied Whether You’d F*ck a Stranger

PIC: ‘Whatever’ (C)

Interesting: Many men won’t agree to go on a date with a strange woman, but will happily have sex with her.

Via RealClearScience:

IN THE MID-1970s, Florida State psychologist Russell Clark was giving a talk at a public forum on campus. In the ensuing question and answer session, he, in the words of his compatriot Elaine Hatfield, “dropped a bomb”:

“A woman, good looking or not, doesn’t have to worry about timing in searching for a man. Arrive at any time. All she has to do is point an inviting finger at any man, whisper ‘Come on ‘a my place,’ and she’s made a conquest. Most women can get any man to do anything they want. Men have it harder. They have to worry about strategy, timing, and tricks.”

As you might expect, a great many women in the crowd took umbrage with those remarks. One even decided that her pencil would make a better spear than a writing utensil, and sent it flying in his direction.

Women whose mates have a hard time pushing their “button” may benefit from a 2001 invention that triggers orgasms at will, provided that its creator can find commercial interest in the device.

Via New Scientist:

Stuart Meloy, a surgeon at Piedmont Anesthesia and Pain Consultants in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, was investigating how the device could be used to treat woman who have difficulty achieving orgasm, but we reported in 2003 that volunteers for early tests were proving hard to find.

As of 2014, the massive media interest in the device has not translated into the $6 million that Meloy estimates would be needed to run a full trial.

Health insurers do not cover the cost of experimental treatments, and approval from regulators is needed to license the devices for treating a specific condition, such as sexual dysfunction. “Staging an FDA pivotal trial is a fairly expensive undertaking, and that takes money I don’t have right now,” Meloy says.

Rumors about Napoleon’s supposed teeny peeny have circulated for years. According to the Independent, the rumors are true, but how would they be able to tell unless it was somehow preserved at full salute? For that matter, are we even sure that this little guy belonged to Napoleon? Did it come with a certifi-dick of authenticity? Oh, speaking of famous phalli, Russian mystic Rasputin’s was supposedly a foot long. Click here for an NSFW pic of what is alleged to be his monster wang.

Via The Independent:

Poor Napoleon. Nearly two centuries after his death, it has been confirmed that the French military and political leader had a “very small” penis, measured at a modest one-and-a-half inches.

In what sounds like a very morbid, yet compelling, new Channel 4 series, Dead Famous DNA aims to find the remains of history’s most famous figures – from Hitler’s hair and Elvis’s DNA to Napoleon and his penis.

The Rise Of The Pro-Orgasm Movement

Yeah, but does that mean that there’s an anti-orgasm movement? I mean, besides the Southern Baptist girl I dated in high school.

Via The Atlantic:

Wearing a red mini dress and stilettos, Nicole Daedone slips into an apron. “I wear an apron because I’ve ruined all my dresses with lube at this point,” she jokes. A small blonde woman clad in black comes out and joins Daedone on stage. We are in the Scottish Rite Center, a masonic temple in downtown Oakland, California. The massive columned room is packed with people of all ages, shapes, and sizes. They have been dancing, yelling out. Call this the orgasm revival.

A massage table with cushions is carried onto the stage. “A demo is fundamentally a celebration,” quips Daedone. She pulls on a pair of rubber gloves. The blonde woman climbs onto the table, takes off her pants, spreads her legs, and the demo begins.
