It’s Sex-Study-O-Rama! Today, researchers have found that oral sex is the gateway sex, Chinese young people learn the most about sex from porn, men are “genetically more disposable” than women, and that black truffles reproduce in wild combinations of “sexualities.” We’ve got more science than you can shake a slide-rule at.
First, a three-year survey at the University of California, San Francisco, has discovered that modern teenagers have an increased chance of engaging in intercourse within six months of their first oral sex experience, making oral the gateway sex leading to harder stuff. According to study researcher Bonnie Halpern-Felsher, “I see most of the health policies out there and guidelines for preventive services talking about sex generally, but they do not specify oral sex. That is an important distinction because teens don't consider oral sex to be sex, and many are not aware of the risks involved.”
In China, increasingly liberal views on sexuality have been blamed on porn. But if the government keeps shutting down access to their porn sites, young people apparently aren’t going to have any sex education. As a professor at Guangzhou University said, “There is a severe lack of formal sex education in the country. Most teachers, from primary schools to universities, do not have knowledge about sex. So how can they teach students?”
Why do women tend to live longer than men? Maybe, because men are “genetically disposable.” Researchers have found new evidence to back the “disposable soma theory,” that says women’s cells degrade more slowly because of the evolutionary need to keep producing offspring. Still, they could’ve rephrased it so as to be more considerate towards the other half—we happen to like our “reproductive partners,” thank you very much.
And, finally, Sexy Black Truffle Porn. (Seriously, that’s actually what it says.) Soon, scientists will discover a way to finally get those elusive fungi to mate and hence flood the market with lab-engineered little black truffle babies—our mushroom omelets just got cheaper, sexier and way more delicious.
Soap star Lisa Rinna has removed the silicone from her lips, and now she says she removes the cover of magazines when they feature models who’ve had too much plastic surgery. Rinna, who has two daughters, told PopEater that the covers are “the last thing my girls need to see,” and that she wants “young women to learn to love themselves. You don't need to change anything—especially your lips.”
The current star of Harry Loves Lisa has recovered nicely from what some Internet gossipers called “Lip-gate,” the scandalous over-inflating of Rinna’s previously gorgeous mouth. These days, she’s a big advocate for women leaving their lips alone. “Trust me, now that I have removed the silicone from my lips, I feel sexier and Harry loves them. It makes kissing and something else much easier,” she says. Now that’s an endorsement.
