Farts Can Be a Turn on For Some Partners Suggests Survey

Farts Can Be a Turn on For Some Partners Suggests Survey

Ripping one, cutting the cheese, floating an air biscuit aka farting is a turn on for some sexual partners, according to a recent survey released by seniorliving.org. 

The survey, aptly named, Everybody Poops and Farts took a closer look at how our men and women really feel about farts, how we try hiding them and other oddities like people that get turned on by them.

Considering that both men and women fart at least 20 times a day, we’re all on this together.

Let’s jump into some of the survey’s results:

How guys try to mask a fart—

  • 75 percent try the ol’ go-to: holding it in
  • 58 percent slip off to another room 
  • 54 percent head out to the great outdoors 
  • 25 percent try to create a distraction by hiding it with noise such as making a fart sound with your mouth.

I can recall countless dates (usually following a dinner out at a Mexican restaurant) where one false move and a million farts would explode. Most people and I assumed my dates would be grossed-out or even replused by flatulence. And personally speaking, the feeling is mutual when my date farts. 

This makes sense since the survey points to an average of 6.5 months before a guy cracks one in front of his partner—on purpose. Women wait an estimated 1.3 years

Guys wait 6.5 months on average to fart in front of their girlfriend or partner.  Women tend to take longer, waiting on average 1.3 YEARS. 

Now, let’s get to those in the survey that apparently are real freaks and get turned on by a fart. It’s a mere 11 percent for guys and 3 percent of women that think it’s hot. Anything over 1 percent is nasty and the survey also cited that 28 percent of guys have ruined the mood after cracking one while in bed with their partner.

 

7 Strange and Fun Facts About Sperm

7 Strange and Fun Facts About Sperm

Sperm has earned many, many, many nicknames: spooge, man juice, baby batter…just to name a few. However, sperm gets more credit than it deserves when sperm is lumped in with semen. Here are seven strange and fun facts about sperm. 

  1. Turns out, it’s not exactly the same as sperm. Sperm makes up a very small amount of man juice—only a mere 5-10 percent. The rest is the semen and since semen is nutrient-charged it also helps propel sperm into the uterine stratosphere. Think of semen as sperm’s wingman. 

2.   Every guy at one point or another has measured the size of his penis. I’ve done it even in my late 20s..ok, recently. You may think your penis or rather testicles packs a big load, but the average full ejaculation is only a teaspoon…NOT a tablespoon. Feel free to grab a teaspoon to see how you measure up, just wash your hands and the teaspoon when you’re finished. 

3.   Now that you know that sperm can launch its way up into the uterine planet thanks to its wingman, semen, you may want to know how long it can party and stay alive up in there. Hold onto your butts—up to five days! That’s right! Of course, this is dependant on the acidity of your partner’s womb. If the acidity is not ripe for fermentation, than typically it can last between 24 and 48 hours. 

4.   Speaking of strong sperm, no matter how many swimmers you think you have, you will never compare to a bat’s sperm which can live up to…wait for it…145 days. WOW! 

5.   Now that you feel inadequate about your sperm’s lifespan, don’t fret. Men NEVER stop producing sperm. That’s right, guys. Now you know how Richard Gere just had a baby and Charlie Chaplin never stopped even into his 70s. It’s ok to take some pride in that. 

6.  Shitty diet = shitty sperm. You are what you eat when it comes to sperm. The worst diet you have, the worse your sperm can get. Stay hydrated ON WATER, and eat foods rich in antioxidants and other aphrodiasic stimulants such as oysters and dark chocolate. As for the water, the more you drink, the deeper pool they have to swim in. Here are 11 foods that you should be eating right now to boost your stamina. You’re welcome. 

7.   Balls deep just took on a new meaning. Sperm are stored in your scrotum because sperm prefer cooler temps which makes sense since men tend to produce more sperm during the colder, winter months than during the heat of the summer. 

4 Best Smelling Body Wash Scents for Men that Women Like 

4 Best Smelling Body Wash Scents for Men that Women Like 

As a guy in my thirties I have a go-to for body washes based on scents that work best with my chemistry and pheromones. Or at least that’s what I like to tell myself. Ulitimately, it’s more about what my partner prefers that gets them sexually charged than what I think I smell like. 

Which led to the ulitmate question: which body wash scents make you more attractive to women?

Based on copius amounts of feedback, I’ve compiled a list of the best body wash scents that you should get busy buying right now to get busy. 

ManCave Natural Cedarwood Shower Gel—Loaded with tea tree, and black pepper oil it’s perfect for guys that suffer from breakouts and other bullshit related to sensitive skin. It’s also free of other crap such as parabens, synthetic dyes (cue skin sensitivity issues) and petrochemiclas. Also, no amimals were part of the testing so that’s a great talking point if you happen to get a compliment on its cedarwood fragrance. Plus, it helps hydrate skin and makes you smell like the mountain main you have always dremed of emulating.

Old Spice Denali Body Wash—Old Spice has been around awhile and to lose its stigma attached to the yesteryear of grandpas splashing it on before church, they have really stepped up their game and scents over the last decade or so. Consider the commericals with the guy sitting on a white horse hawking scents with names like Wolfthorn, Steel Courage, Swagger and even Bearglove. However, the most appealing scent is one called, Denali. Don’t believe me? It’s the scent that is most-often missing from shelves due to its popularity. What’s the best about this body wash is that it still holds that safe and nostalgic scent of yesteryear without going to creepville and still smelling youthful instead of like a grandpa from the 1970s. 

Hollister Jake—Speaking of youth, this scent is right in step with the cedarwood shower gel scent meaning that it still encompasses the scent of youth without smelling like you’re too young to be DTF and know what you are doing. Hollister is typically in step with surfing and a more “free” lifestyle which is a nice touch when you are trying to sell your date or partner on spontaneous sex. Oh, and feel free to exaggerate your time as a kite surfer. 

Nivea Men Energy–  What is it with Nivea and men’s products? Well, beause they are awesome and they have come a long way since the company shifted from focusing on womens and its namesake which was a combo of the latin words, nix, or nivis—meaning, “snow white.” Today, its line of products cater to guys that want smooth, clean skin and a scent to match which is why women like the men’s care line as well. 

7 Surprising Causes of ED or Erectile Dysfunction 

 pexels-photo-1246960.jpg

Most guys at some point in their lives will have trouble getting it up or the medical term: erectile dysfunction which is commonly referred to as ED—you know, to make guys feel a little better about it. 

Truth be told, even in your 20s you have probably experienced problems performing mostly related to too much alcohol or your run-of-the-mill performance anxiety. 

Here are 7 other reasons or causes that most guys will inenvitably face as they get older. 

—Prescription medications

I actually covered this in an earlier blog after I discovered that Rogaine was killing my sex drive. If a topical like Rogaine can do this imagine what drugs like Propecia can do. Medications that also treat prostate issues have also been linked to lower libidos in men. Just be upfront with your doctor if you are experiencing a lack of drive or no longer “stronger like bull.”  

—Visit the dentist regularly 

If you haven’t been to the dentist in awhile or have been diagnosed with gum disease or periodontal disease it’s time to get it fixed. Not just for your overall health but periodontal disease can also cause erectile dysfunction. Seriously, don’t neglect your gums. 

—Cycling

Getting regular exercise is great but cycling for long periods of time or long distance does no favors for your prostate or those blood vessels. This is because the saddle or the bicycle seat pushes or slows down blood flow to your penis. Try other forms of cardio and weight lifting to stay fit and active. 

—Diabetes 

If you have ever been diagnosed as pre-diabetic or have received the diagnosis you need to know that the inability to regulate your blood sugar levels drastically impairs getting and holding erections. Again, be aware of this and talk to your doctor if you are having signs of ED. 

—Depression 

Speaking of depressing notonly does depression take a tole on my body and mind but it screws up your sexual drive as well. Adding insult to injury, some of the medications commonly prescribed for depression can mess with your erections. Again, let your doctor or physician know and inquire about something else that would be just as effective without causing momentary impotence. 

If none of the other reasons apply to you, look to your diet and always consult a physician first. 

How to Drop the Beer Gut and Replace it With Six Pack Abs 

How to Drop the Beer Gut and Replace it With Six Pack Abs 

Get rid of that beer gut and get that six pack transformed in the form of ripped abs. If you’ve been struggling with getting rid of the spare tire and building at least a four-pack of abs, you are probably doing it wrong. 

Your abs are what you eat:

There is a saying among the fitness industry that abs are made in the kitchen—not the gym. In fact, it’s most likely what you drink that is keeping you from getting rock hard. The biggest liquid calorie culprits are alcholic drinks, fruit juices and energy drinks. Love your smoothies? Try replacing them with dark-green veggies instead and avoid heavy carb-loaded meals such as pasta. 

More is not better it’s actually worse:

Quality over quantity is best when you working your abs. In fact, the best formula is an ab exercise that is only 15-20 reps. You also want to treat these exercises like upper body or leg days. YOU DON’T DO THEM EVERY DAY! It’s best to consult with a professional trainer that can make sure you are doing them right and avoiding injury but to get you started here is a handy blog on ab exercises.

Sit-ups and crunches will only crush your results:

As we mentioned in the above paragraph, quality over quantity. Ask a fitness professional about crunches and they likely tell you that you are wasting your time. Instead, focus on the proper form and aforementioned reps of 15-20. 

Be wary of fat burning pills:

Fat burning pills can be effective for losing fat but they can also eat away at the muscle you are busting your ass to get. It’s best to avoid them and get on a proper diet plan that compliments your efforts. Seriously, resist the urge. 

Prep your meals:

Once you have put together a good meal plan you will want to make sure you stick to it. By preparing your meals ahead of time and having them on hot standby, you can ensure that you will not wander too far and start scarfing down shitty foods like pizzas, and greasy burgers. In fact, one tip is to shop the outside of the grocery store. This where meats, dairies, veggies and the freshest foods with less additives and sugars are stocked. Typically, the inside aisles are full of processed crap that will throw off your goals. 

Lastly, don’t starve yourself or beat yourself up too much if you went out and head a few beers and a burger. Get back to the business of rock hard abs. 

As always: consult your physician before starting any new diet or exercise plan. 

 

7 Things That Gross Out and Turn Off Women in Bed 

7 Things That Gross Out and Turn Off Women in Bed

The night started off so great. A good dinner, some wine, more libations, a little more libations and the next thing you know, she’s onto what you have had on your mind the whole night—you are both going to get some hot ass. 

That is until you don’t and have zero understanding of what went wrong. Here are 7 clues that you might have missed for what might have ruined the mood. 

—Smells.  I think it goes without saying that ripping off a fart is bad form whether you are having sex, eating or just Netflix and chill.  The practice of flatuence is best done when alone or when you have privacy.  However, don’t forget about smelly breath, and pungent orders from sweat-soaked socks that even if removed you might want to give a good scrubbing. 

—Ablutions.  If you plan on doing some prep work such as a good swig of mouthwash, a little freshen’ up to the penis and butt crack (all good ideas) do so behind closed doors. No one wans to see you crouched over the counter spraying your balls. Slip into the bathroom or ask for some privacy if you need it. 

—Tidy up.   How nasty is your comforter? Does it have obvious stains from spooge or pizza crusts and crumbs all in the covers? Take the time to at least made the bed an inviting place to do have sex. After all, you want her focus on being on top not what’s on top of the comforter. 

—Nasty feet.  When was the last time to trimmed your toenails? Is there any sign of toe cheese? Believe it or not, women actually pay attention to what your feet look like even If you don’t. So, take the time to give your feet a quick look and do some quick maintainece if needed. 

—Voyeur pets.  Got a dog or cat that likes to watch? You may want to clear it with her first. And it’s hard to predict whether whiskers wants to get in on the action by licking your feet, hers or sticking a nose where it’s not expected or wanted. Send them out of the room with a treat or the promise of a walk….later after you’re done. 

—No foreplay.  You may be ready to go but take the time to turn her on through a little foreplay before getting busy. This also allows you to test how freaky she might get between the sheets. 

—Burps.  This might qualify under the smells department but not all burps are created equal and a large, guttural, window-shaking belch even sans smell is just too palpable. 

Naked Man is Not the Only Guy to Test Planet Fitness’ No Judgements Slogan 

Naked Man is Not the Only Guy to Test Planet Fitness’ No Judgements Slogan

The one and only time I walked into a Planet Fitness was during a visit to Florida to see my dad during a work trip. I normally like to go for a run outside and then hit the weights inside but it was in the middle of August and I overslept past 6 am which means temps and humidity had already skyrocketed by 7 am. 

My dad (who has long been divorced from my mom) is not the most fit man but in his early 70s he knows that cardio is good for his sex life and invited me to hit the gym where the A/C and music is turned all the way up. 

His Planet Fitness is not unlike most across the U.S-located in a long winding strip mall front and center surrounded by commercial retailers like TJ Maxx. The same signature yellow and purple colors popping out like a cheap leisure suit. 

However, inside it’s a geriatric hotspot and the place to be seen if you are a retiree and DTF.  In the corner is a smoothie bar where a couple of baby boomer hotties (my dad’s description not mine) mingle in activewear and makeup.

Nearby on treadmills in the most coveted section of the gym two women in their 70s walk on the treadmill and complain about the condo association board and their ideas for punishment for people that don’t pick up dog poop in the common areas. 

My dad is quick to introduce me to the geriatric hotties as “my son who never visits” and after a quick meet and greet, I bee-line it for a section of treadmills farthest away from where Fox News and CNN blare commentary on competing televisions.

I jump up on a treadmill in a darkened corner of the room and get ready to plug into my workout and headphones. Scanning the area, I see the same people that I have seen in every gym. In the weight room, and where my people are, a guy with a Burt Reynolds stash is giving it hell on his biceps. Not far from him is what appears to be his lady friend with the ass of a twenty-year-old. These are the gym rats of yesteryear and today. Unfortunately, they still love a savage tan so their skin is not on par with their physique. 

Across the room, a group of “regulars” mingle around unoccupied elliptical machines and complain of sciatica and other ailments. They are serious about the gym but getting in a workout is second to socializing. These would be my dad’s people but he does insist on spending at least 20 minutes on the recumbent bike and sometimes he breaks a sweat. 

I stick out like a sore thumb due to my age and I feel an unspoken resentment and might have heard the murmurs if I had taken the time to turn down my music. The truth is, there is no such thing as a “no judgements” gym no matter the age of patrons or the gym.

There are still the same regulars that are there to mingle, the same assholes lay claim to their treadmill in front of the TV, the gym rats police the amount of time on equipment and the hotties still show up  in full makeup and perfectly-coordinated workout clothes. 

Instead of stripping down to your birthday suit (like the guy that was recently arrested for doing naked yoga at a Planet Fitness), stop sweating being judged at the gym—who cares, you’re there to look great naked. At home. In the bedroom.

High-Fat Diets May Lead to Weight Gain Not Loss Says New Study

scale-diet-fat-health-53404.jpg

If you have been busting your ass at the gym and sticking to that Keto diet and not losing weight or rather gaining, it might be the diet and not you, according a new study. 

I know, I know it sucks to hear this shocking news but before you change up your diet (and always consult with your physician before starting or stopping a new diet or exercise plan) here is the skinny on this study. 

It was conducted by the University of Aberdeen and the Chinese Academy of Sciences. The two learning institutions joined forces and tried out the results on 30 mice—giving one group lots of fat and very little carbs and the other group little-to-no fact and low carbs as well. 

Turns out, fat just might make you fat suggests the study. The group of mice that got lots of fat actually gained weight while the group of mice that had very little or zero fat and a low-carb diet maintained their rodent figures and gained no weight. 

This doesn’t mean you should shovel in the sugar or blow off healthy eating. Instead, be mindful of the amount of fat in your diet and stick to a healthy low-carb diet. 

In fact, many of the foods that are better for boosting your health AND YOUR SEX DRIVE contain a minimal amount of fat or rather contain the kind of good fats that our bodies need. Hint: it’s not the kind of fat in bacon. 

So, have the burger but go lean on the fat.

April is Testicular Cancer Awareness Month: Check Em’

pexels-photo-289657

This week’s blog we are going to go balls deep about your testicular health because April is Testicular Cancer Awareness Month.

Each year, approximately 8,000 men will be diagnosed with testicular cancer which is a relatively low number when compared to other cancers. However, what most guys don’t know is that this form of cancer is most prevalent in guys that are young and between the ages of 15 to 35 years-old.

So, what are your risk factors and what the heck are you supposed to do? Well, for starters, keep an eye on the ball. No seriously. If you notice the following signs or symptoms get your ass  or testicles to a doctor asap. And also feel free to have your partner or girlfriend double check for you.

Warning signs:

  • Swelling in one or both testicles (even if it’s a very subtle change)
  • Heaviness in the scrotum area
  • A painless lump small or big in one or both testicles
  • Groin pain or an aching sensation in the the lower part of your abs or back
  • Unexplained fluid that showed up suddenly in your scrotum
  • Sudden and unexplained pain in your testicles

Risks vary but are higher for guys that were born with a testicle that failed to drop, an HIV infection(always use a rubber), a history of testicular cancer, or plain old genetics.

One last risk factor: most men that are white or Caucasian tend to be diagnosed the most with testicular cancer. 

Now, for the good news. By being aware of your risk, checking your testicles each month for lumps and adding a testicular exam as part of your annual well visit with your doctor means you can catch it early. The earlier you catch it the more curable it is.
