5 Reasons ‘Just Be Yourself’ Is Terrible Dating Advice – Linnea Molander, Huffington Post – “Just be yourself” might be the most common advice given to anyone who’s nervous about going on a date. And I get it, it really might feel like an encouraging thing to say. The underlying meaning is, “I think you’re awesome just the way you are, and others will, too.” That’s great, and the person who said it to you probably really means it.
A Guide to the G Spot, from the Woman Who Named It – Men’s Journal, Yahoo! Health – The G spot, or so we’d have you believe, is an area said to elicit incredible pleasure and likely orgasm in women, similar to the clitoris. Simple, right? Not exactly. Every biological facet of the G spot — where it is, what it does, and even if it exists at all — has expert proponents and detractors. So who’s to be believed? How about Beverly Whipple, professor emerita at Rutgers College and one of the researchers who found and named the G spot? We spoke with Whipple with her about this elusive pleasure center to help us separate fact from fiction.
Why Tall Guys Have More Sex – Paige Fowler, Men’s Health – Size matters in the bedroom, at least when it comes to the length of your inseam: Taller guys tend to have more sex partners, suggests new research from Chapman University. In the study of more than 60,000 people, scientists found that men who were shorter than what they deemed “average” (5’8” to 5’10”) reported one to three fewer total partners than guys with a greater stature.
3 Men Talk About Why They’re Obsessed With Their Small Penises – Johannah King-Slutzky, Cosmopolitan – One of the Internet’s lesser-known fetishes is “small penis humiliation,” also known as SPH. Small penis humiliation is a sexual practice and fantasy for men who enjoy being shamed for the length and girth of their genitals. The SPH community includes men of diverse ages, sexual orientations, socioeconomic levels, races, and personalities. People who practice SPH don’t universally have below-average-size penises — in the U.S. that would mean under 5.6 inches when erect — but many do, and those who don’t act as if they do during sex. Many men in the SPH community sleep exclusively or primarily with women but get aroused by looking at and touching men’s penises.
