It is a known fact that most people practice sex at least once in their entire lives. It is considered one of the best pleasures in life. We can come up with a long list of reasons why most of us engage in sex, though we can also come up with a list of Top 10 most amazing facts about sex that makes it as interesting as the actual act.
1. Animal Prostitution
It is amazing to note that penguins follow a practice that is somewhat similar to prostitution. There are penguins, including those with established relationships, who are willing to offer sexual favors to other penguins in exchange to the pebbles that they will require in building their nests.
2. Have sex, have fun
Humans are not the only animal who indulge in sex purely for the fun of it. Bonobo chimps and dolphins are known to actively engage in various forms of sexual activities outside of their normal reproductive cycle. The bonobos practice their own versions of oral sex, tongue kissing and genital sex.
3. Porn boosts sperm production
Several studies have proven that men who watch and read porn materials will have more sperm and have heightened sexual urges especially when it involves a woman with a pair of men. Experts believe that it triggers the competitive juices of a person leading to enhanced capacity in baby making.
4. “Blow Job” originated from the Victorian era
“Blowsy” was the pejorative term used to refer to prostitutes during the Victorian era. Consequently, the word “blow” was used as the slang term for ejaculation. These terms paved the way for the use of the word “blow job” in 1932 in reference to the act of fellatio which is commonly practiced by prostitutes.
5. Pubic hair follows a controlled growth
All the hair in our body, including our pubic hair, follows a natural growth program. It establishes the length and duration of the growth of the hair in our body. The pubic hair will grow up to a certain length and within a fixed duration, and will automatically stop once this is already attained.
