Articles About Sex

Sex and attitudes toward sex have long been of interest to me and I often encounter articles which stir more than average thought in this area. Unfortunately, once read, I tend to forget where I saw them, or they get moved or deleted, and I lose the ability to find them again. To help to avoid this in the future, I'm going to start storing links to them here, along with some small bit of content from each link so that if it gets deleted, I'll be able to use a search engine to find the content elsewhere (hopefully). With that in mind, here goes:

Can Women Have Sex Like Men?:
In biological terms, the female orgasm releases a burst of oxytocin, also known as the cuddle hormone. It's what makes you feel warm and fuzzy and what facilitates a sense of attachment. But if there's nothing to attach to, if there's no deeper emotional content or meaningfulness, orgasm becomes a regretful reminder of the hollowness of the sex that preceded it. This is called 'post-orgasm regret,'...."

Key thoughts:
* "Making love" is a reasonable term for sex.
* The original article I read, which I have been unable to find, floated the idea at the end that men "should" have sex like women. An article which began by opening the doors to women and giving them more freedom, wound up taking part in the relentless violence that our society has been perpetrating upon male sexuality since time immemorial. (And here is an actual blog entry in which the writer asserts, "Perhaps rather than teaching women how they can deny their own biology and learn to seperate emotion from sex, Dr. Kerner should be giving tips on how men can re-instill meaning and emotion into sex. The disconnect is not a short-coming of the women, but of the men." Gee...there it is. The violence against male sexuality continues.)

Now here's an interesting one. It seems that for relationships...well, specifically marriages...to last, it's a good idea for the wife to be 5 or more years younger than the husband: 'Younger Wife' for Marital Bliss:

The secret to a happy marriage for men is choosing a wife who is smarter and at least five years younger than you, say UK experts.

These pairings are more likely to go the distance, particularly if neither has been divorced in the past, according to the Bath University team.

...

If the age gap is reversed, and the man is older than the woman, the odds of marital bliss are higher.
