Unusual Sex Facts You May Not Have Known About

by Coleen Singer at Sssh.com

Now that 2013 draws to a close, it’s time for the constant barrage of lists in just about every form of popular media.  Sexiest man lists.  Celeb fashion victim lists.  You know the drill.  It happens every year and can be a pleasant diversion from the “serious business of life”!

Funny Sex Facts
Who would have guessed?

All of this list-making generally starts a few says before Thanksgiving with endless lists about “Fun Turkey Facts”, really ramps up the week before New Years with the lists of “Heros”, who passed away during the past year, and then spills right over into January and February with the Porn Awards at AVN and XBIZ, and on to the Golden Globes and Oscars.

Not to be left out of the action, I decided to compile a set of “strange but true” sex facts that originally appeared in a cute little book you might consider getting for someone as a gift this holiday season.


From “1,227 Quite Interesting Facts to Blow Your Socks Off“, Reddit, and various other random sources we discover:

1. One in ten European babies is conceived in an IKEA bed.

2. Alfred Kinsey, author of Sexual Behavior in the Human Male (1948), had a collection of 5 million wasps and could insert a toothbrush into his penis, bristle-end first.

3. British spies stopped using semen as invisible ink because it began to smell if it wasn’t fresh.

4. A single sperm contains 37.5 MB of DNA information. One ejaculation represents a data transfer of 15,875 GB, equivalent to the combined capacity of 62 MacBook Pro laptops.

5. Male fruitflies rejected by females drink significantly more alcohol than those that have had a successful encounter.

6. A female ferret will die if she doesn’t have sex for a year.

7. Seven Viagra tablets are sold every second.

8. The German for “contraceptive” is Schwangerschaftsverhütungsmittel. By the time you’ve finished saying it, it’s too late.

9. The American Psychiatric Association listed homosexuality as a mental illness until 1973.

10. The best-selling work of fiction of the 15th century was “The Tale of the Two Lovers,” an erotic novel by the man who later became Pope Pius II.

11. A single human male produces enough sperm in two weeks to impregnate every fertile woman on the planet.

12. In 2008, archaeologists in Cyprus found a 7th-century curse inscribed on a lead tablet that said, “May your penis hurt when you make love.” Nobody knows who made the curse, or why.

13. The founder of match.com, Gary Kremen, lost his girlfriend to a man she met on match.com.

14. Gymnophoria is the sense that someone is mentally undressing you.

15. A female chimpanzee in a fit of passion has the strength of six men.

16. At the 2012 London Olympics, which lasted for 17 days, the athletes were provided with 150,000 free condoms- approximately 15 each.

17. The “G-spot” was nearly called the “Whipple Tickle” after Professor Beverley Whipple, who coined the expression that we know today.

18. Alligator’s have erections for 100% of their lifetime.

19. Cleopatra is credited with the invention of the vibrator. She is said to have taken insects and placed them inside a hollow sphere. The insects would become agitated and begin buzzing around, causing the sphere to vibrate.

20. Amazon River Dolphins are the only species of animal recorded to have engaged in nasal sex.

21. Avocado is the Aztec word for testicle. In Aztec culture, avocados were considered sexually powerful and were restricted for virgins.

22. The average erection contains enough blood to keep three gerbils alive.

23. Four popes have died during sex.

24. Kangaroos have three vaginas.

25. About 100 million couples around the world have sex every day. That means around 65,000 couples are having sex right now.

26. Thailand is world leader in women cutting off their husbands’ penises.

27. Thailand also performs the largest number of sexual reassignment surgeries in the world, mostly on foreigners. However, the country with the second most sex change operations, and the highest number to do so on its own citizens, is Iran.

28. The blue whale can ejaculate about 200 gallons of semen.

30. If your parents had waited five seconds later, or began five seconds earlier you wouldn’t be here.

31. Make-up is meant to simulate what a woman’s face looks like mid-orgasm. Reddish or dark pink lipstick mimics the way lips will engorge with blood. Blush mimics flushed skin. Eyeliner and darker eyeshadow will make the eyes appear half closed, hence the term “bedroom eyes”.

32. It’s also believed that red underwear is considered sexy because it’s an evolutionary callback to when our rumps used to get all hot and red when the ladies of the species wanted a man.

33. When a grasshopper ejaculates, it looses 1/3 of its body mass.

34. Penguins only orgasm once a year.

35. Praying Mantis sex. The male has a second brain in his bottom to continue having sex while the female eats him.

36. The record for having sex with the most men in 24 hours goes to American Lisa Sparks who bedded an incredible 919. That’s roughly 38 men per hour.

37. Porn Star James Deen has a full blown Burrito Fetish!

Let’s wrap it up with an amusing video that Ask Men put together last year:

So now you know! You’re ready for the “pop quiz” now…
