The Facts About Sex Every Guy Should Know–Will These Scientific Sexual Discoveries Help Spice Up Your Sex Life Tonight?
Sex is a complex subject that has been studied for centuries.
And while few things about sex are certain, one thing we do know is this:
Sex has a huge impact on our relationships–both with ourselves and with those around us.
So of course, it’s only natural that researchers all over the world would devote their lives to studying sex… but what can we learn from them?
What do we really know about sex today… and are there any sexual discoveries in recent years that you can personally use to enhance your sex life?
As it turns out, the answer is most likely, “Yes.”
So that’s what I’m going to show you today.
Below are 22 scientific sexual discoveries that cover a whole range of topics, including:
Relationships (both monogamous and casual)…
We’ve broken down the scientific jargon and complicated methodologies into plain English so that you can start having better sex, right away!
So let’s begin with your health:
Health & Sex: How Having Certain Kinds of Sex Keeps You Healthy
1) Loud Sex Really Is Better for Your Overall Health
A study conducted by researchers at the University of Leeds found that having loud sex leads to better sex, stronger relationships, and heightened pleasure.
They polled participants to understand the relationship between loud sex and overall pleasure. This means you can (and should) be as loud as you want in the bedroom–it’s good for you!
2) Want Better Sex? Try Cutting Calories
A study conducted by Martin, C.K. et al. found that calorie restriction led to overall better sexual performance.
They followed participants and found that limiting calories led to better sexual function. That doesn’t mean you should starve yourself, but it basically tells us that eating the right amount instead of overeating can help increase your sex drive.
So if you’re facing struggles down south, try a short-term fast or reduce the amount you’re eating during each meal to get awesome results.
3) Having More Sex Can Lower Your Risk of Prostate Cancer
A study conducted by researchers at Harvard Medical School found that more orgasms can actually protect men against developing prostate cancer.
They enlisted and interviewed over 29,000 participants who, over the course of decades, kept track of their orgasms per month.
Researchers determined that men who orgasm at least 21 times a month had a 33% lower risk of developing prostate cancer than men who ejaculated less.
The takeaway? Have more sex to reduce your risk of cancer–it’s a win/win.
4) Is Your Sexual Interest Lagging? Try Turning On The Lights
A study conducted by scientists at the University of Siena found that exposure to bright light increased men’s testosterone levels, leading to a stronger sex drive and sexual desire.
They studied 38 men who showed lack of interest in sex and exposed half to bright light to come to this conclusion.
If you’re struggling with a low sex drive, try investing in a simple bright light therapy device (you can snag one on Amazon) and use it throughout the day to improve your mood and sexual drive.
5) Condoms May Be The Culprit Behind Erectile Dysfunction–But It’s More Complicated Than You Think
A questionnaire compiled by Sanders, A. S. et al. found that perception of condoms impacted men suffering from erectile dysfunction.
They polled 479 men and found that ill-fitting condoms and a negative perception of condoms seemed to lead to increased chances of erectile dysfunction.
When men see condoms as a negative thing, rather than an awesome tool to use for protected sex, they tend to become less sexually excited. Also, if your condom doesn’t fit right, you’re more likely to dread putting it on.
To have better protected sex, make sure you find a condom that feels great, which should take away the negative feelings you might have about wearing one.

Relationships & Sex: Exploring Love, Connection, and How This Can Affect Your Sex Life
6) Relationship Satisfaction Is Consistent With Sexual Satisfaction
A study conducted by the National Health and Social Life Survey (NHSLS) found that couples who reported having a healthy sex life also reported having a healthy relationship.
The NHSLS randomly surveyed Americans and discovered this link between sexual satisfaction and overall relationship satisfaction. Perhaps unsurprisingly, 88% of married men and 79% of married women admitted sex was emotionally satisfying, showing that better sex equals a healthier emotional relationship.
So, if you want to have a strong marriage (or relationship in general), you better believe sex plays an important role.
7) There Is a Chemical In Your Body That Affects Your Ability To Love
Recent research conducted at the Research Triangle Institute International argues that there is a link between love and the peptide oxytocin, also known as “the love hormone.”
They cited previous scientific research on this love hormone and love in general to determine that higher levels of oxytocin led to a higher ability to love (and vice versa).
They also found that changes in social interactions could impact oxytocin levels in the body, resulting in changes in how we love.
The basic takeaway from this study is that the more open you are to love, the better your body can heal itself (from both heartache and other emotional pains). So don’t be afraid to love–your body’s got you covered.
8) How Long-Term Couples Rate in Sexual Satisfaction & Overall Relationship Satisfaction
A study conducted by researchers at the Kinsey Institute found health, physical intimacy, and sexual functioning are important for overall relationship happiness in men, while sexual functioning is linked to overall relationship happiness in women.
They polled couples in committed relationships across five countries to arrive at these results. This tells us that both men and women desire a healthy sexual relationship to stay happy,
9) Sexual Personality Traits May Be More Responsible for Cheating Than Religion and Relationship Status
A study conducted by a researcher at the Center for Sexual Health Promotion at Indiana University found that both men and women were more likely to cheat on a partner due to sexual personality characteristics.
They polled 506 men and 412 women to come to this conclusion. They also found that factors like overall relationship unhappiness or emotional incompatibility were important causes for women who decided to cheat–these made no difference to the men in the study.
This tells us that when women cheat, it’s largely due to relationship issues and sexual incompatibility, whereas men are more likely to cheat if sexual chemistry is lacking.
In short, keep your sex life going strong to deter either of you from losing interest.
Sex & Drugs: What Every Guy Should Know
10) Routine Marijuana Use Has Been Linked to Increased Sex
A poll conducted by researchers at Stanford University School of Medicine found that more marijuana use = more sex. That is, the more a person smokes marijuana, the more that person has sex.
They polled over 50,000 Americans between 25-45 and found the results were unanimous. So, if you’re looking for a way to increase your health drive, you have a good reason to light up.

11) How Consensual vs Non-Consensual Sex Determines a Woman’s Desire For Sex
A study conducted by researchers at The Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction at Indiana University found a link between desire for sexual intercourse and acknowledgment of consensual vs. non-consensual sex.
They surveyed women’s experiences with rape and consensual sex to determine that there was a positive link between consensual sex and wanting sex.
The researchers also found more of a link between non-consensual sex that women did not fully acknowledge as “rape” and sexual desire.
12) Sexual Violence Prevention Programs May Be the Key to Reducing Sexual Crimes
An analysis of sexual violence studies published by researchers at the Center for Evaluation & Education Policy determined that sexual violence prevention programs could help reduce overall sexual violence.
They found that most sexual violence programs focus on after-care for victims, rather than preventing sexually violent crimes.
By focusing on prevention, both men and women can learn more about what’s legal to prevent any blurred lines before, during and after sex.
Sex & Work: How Your Job Affects Your Sex Life
13) A Healthy Sex Life Can Lead to Better Job Engagement & Satisfaction
A study conducted by researchers from Oregon State University and the University of Oregon found that sex leads to a positive mood-boosting effect, also known as “afterglow,” which lingers for 24 hours.
This afterglow leads to an increase in job satisfaction and performance during that time frame.
They analyzed 159 married couples over the course of two weeks to arrive at these results. So, if you’re looking to improve your mood at work, morning sex might be just the pick-me-up you need.

Casual Sex: Exploring “Hookup Culture” in the Modern Dating World
15) Scientists Find That While “Hookup Culture” Is On The Rise, Men & Women Still Crave Romantic Relationships
A literature review published by researchers at Indiana University and Binghamton University found that “hookup culture” could be partially explained by biological and psychological factors, like technological advances or busy lifestyles.
Despite the increase in hookup culture, this study found that most singles (including college students) still wanted a romantic relationship. They reviewed critical studies and determined that more research on the phenomenon of “hookup culture” was needed to fully understand its long-term impact on relationships.
One thing is clear: the median age of marriage has risen, showing that hookup culture could be responsible for why couples are finding each other much later in life.
16) Women Are More Likely to Regret Casual Sex Than Men: Yet It Still May Be Detrimental to Men’s Health
A study conducted by researchers at St. Mary’s University found that both men and women experienced regret after casual sex, though women were more likely to experience these negative emotions.
They surveyed 138 women and 62 men to find that men felt more regret based on a women’s looks, while women worried more about sexual safety.
Overall, sexual regret was found to impact both men and women’s emotional health, so even if you’re planning to have a one-night stand, make sure it’s with a person you actually have chemistry with.
17) Sexual Attraction Was Found to Be Reduced By Having a Large Number Of Previous Sexual Partners
A study published in The Journal of Sex Research found that having a high number of previous sexual partners often led to decreased attraction from potential partners.
They surveyed 188 participants and found that both men and women were less likely to be attracted to someone with an extensive sexual history.
While you can’t change your number of partners, opting not to brag about your sexual pursuits will definitely make you more attractive to women.
Women & Sex: What REALLY Drives Her Wild in The Bedroom
18) Sexual Interest Is Not The Key Factor In Women’s Sexual Arousal
A study detailed in The Archives of Sexual Behavior found that there are many factors that impact sexual arousal, and sexual interest is not always one of them.
They studied 80 women in small focus groups and found that sexual interest sometimes caused arousal, while other times interest followed arousal.
What this means is that even if a woman isn’t initially aroused during foreplay, don’t panic–it’s totally normal. Similarly, if you can physically turn a woman on when you’re with her, then she’s more likely to develop a romantic interest in you later on down the line.
Ultimately, you can use this information to your advantage and drive her crazy in bed by getting her excited, which will then increase her attraction to you.
19) The Female Orgasm Remains Elusive: Determinants of Orgasm Vary Greatly From Woman To Woman
A long-term study conducted by researchers at the Population Research Institute (Family Federation of Finland) found that women’s frequencies and capacities to achieve orgasm varied greatly from individual to individual.
They used surveys and panels to arrive at these results. If you’re finding it hard to make a woman orgasm, try asking her what really gets her going.
Likewise, be aware that many women also love to see their partners orgasm, so an equal give-and-take relationship is the key to mind-blowing sex.

BDSM & Sexual Experience: How To Safely Experiment With “Taboo Topics”
20) Less Sexually Experienced Individuals Are Viewed as Less Desirable Than More Experienced Individuals
A study published in the Journal of Sex Research found that virgins and sexually inexperienced individuals were considered less desirable than more experienced individuals.
They conducted three studies which showed that most people view virgins as less sexually attractive.
If you’re a virgin or just not experienced with sex, don’t panic. Framing your inexperience as a way for your partner to teach you new things in bed or show you some of their fantasies can really increase their sexual attraction to you.
21) BDSM Sex May Be More Mindful & Fulfilling Than Vanilla Sex
A study conducted by researchers from Northern Illinois University found that couples engaging in BDSM sex entered a “flow state” during sex which led to more mindful and satisfying sexual enjoyment.
This flow state is described as a feeling as though time has stopped, and all that exists is what’s happening between you and your partner.
So, if you’re looking to have more memorable or attentive sex, you might want to try roleplaying or engaging in other BDSM activities.

Researchers conducted an internet poll of 1,516 adults to rate sexual fantasies as “typical,” “common,” “unusual,” or “rare.”
One of the most common fantasies was submission/domination for both men and women. So if you’ve been curious about sub or dom-play, chances are your partner has been, too.
