Here’s Why You Should Be Wearing Socks During Sex

The latest facts and stats on sex.

Pull Up Your Socks
Think sex in socks is for those poor Alaskans freezing their arses off in the middle of winter? Think again. Researchers at the University of Groningen found that 80% of couples reached orgasm while wearing a pair, while only half could do it with their feet exposed to the elements. The reason? Socks keep you warm, helping your blood vessels dilate and improving bloodflow to the most important parts.

Your future sex life? Forget the slow jams, you’ll be cranking up the heavy metal. A new report has predicted that by 2050, more people will be getting down with robots than with each other. The author, Dr Ian Pearson, a futurologist (that’s a real thing), writes that while people may be squeamish about making the bot with two backs, this will quickly change as promiscuous androids become smarter and more lifelike. And it’s not just about grinding gears; the author predicts many bot-bonkers will begin forming strong emotional bonds with their strange new bedfellows. Just ask that guy who married his doll.

Bookmark Her Mood
She’s not in the mood again? Don’t worry, it probably has nothing to do with you. Close to 36% of women between the ages of 30 and 59 suffer from low sexual drive at some point. But don’t give up on your advances just yet. Turns out researchers have discovered a new promising treatment, and it’s sitting on the shelves of your nearest bookstore. According to the study published in Sexual and Relationship Therapy, two groups of women who self-identified as struggling with a low sexual drive, were asked to read either a self-help book or a piece of erotic fiction. The result? Both groups experienced an improvement in sexual desire, satisfaction, arousal and orgasm. And you were moaning about another Fifty Shades sequel!
