Watch 14 couples wed in the same place, on the same day.
Save the date!
What:Brides.com cordially invites you to view the weddings of 14 lucky couples. Sure, these 28 brides- and grooms-to-be are complete strangers, but you can get to know them all here. Among them is one lesbian couple, one vow-renewal, a couple from the Coast Guard, and one groom with the venue tattooed on his arm. The joint wedding is part of an annual contest in which participants submit their personal love stories.
Where: The couples will all be married atop the Empire State Building in New York City. While the landmark only opens its doors to weddings one day a year, the venue didn't accidentally overbook. (Sorry, Bride Wars fans! If you're looking for fiend-brides—or you are one—check out Bluefly's Bride Wars story contest, here). And no, the party won't be crowded. Besides each couples' private parties of up to 20 friends and family members, guests are invited to attend the wedding marathon from the privacy of their own homes, where the online video streaming service Mogulus Pro, will provide a live high-quality broadcast at www.brides.com/esb.
When: The celebration will be held on February 14th from 7a.m. to 5p.m., so if you can't find anything better to do for ten straight hours on Valentine's Day, you're in luck! (Although watching ten straight hours of wedding coverage might put all the single ladies over the edge.)
Another reason to be more addicted to your iPhone more than you were five minutes ago—it's what sets you apart from those sex deprived Droid freaks.
According to Match.com's Singles In America survey, 55 percent of iPhone users said they’d had sex at least once per month over the past year. For Android users, it was 51 percent. There's no app for that, folks. No wait, actually there's tons.
Does that annoying couple who can't keep their hands off each other at the dinner table happen to have a TV in their bedroom? Well, here's one more reason to hate them: they're having a sh*tload of sex.
A study found that those who have a television in their room get twice the action than those who do not. The reason, as you may guess, is that they can easily watch something erotic to get them in the mood. Take that, iPads.
"Just one of the guys" translates to "a woman who has lots of sex," says science. But no, she's not sleeping with these guy friends, her active sex life has to do with sexual rivalry.
A study, published in the Journal of Comparative Psychology, showed that men in relationships are more attracted to their partners when they think (even subconsciously) that they could be cheating on them. Go figure.
6. Miami Residents
If you were contemplating making the move to the city where the heat is (really) on, be assured you will be having a lot more sex—especially if you're from Minnesota.
According to Trojan's Degrees Of Pleasure study, Miami residents are having the most sex in the country. At 102 times a year, Miamians are 59 percent more sexually active than residents of Minneapolis-St. Paul. And the fun doesn't stop there—they also reported the nation's longest sex seshes: 35 minutes on average.
Another group who gets it on all the time? Artists and poets, It may not surprise you since artists are more liberal and progressive, but a 2005 study found that artistic communities have 233 percent more sexual partners than people who aren't artists or poets.
Could one of the worst habits for your health also be the secret to an active sex life?
A study found that smokers are 10 percent more sexually active than nonsmokers. And, those who drink and smoke are almost 200 percent more sexually active than those who do neither. Smokers these days are risk-takers and often light up to relax and look sexy—and I guess it's working. Though moving to Miami would be the healthier option.
All those ladies who have height on their list of dealbreakers, do you know what you're missing? Well, lots of sex for starters!
A study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine looked at the sex lives of heterosexual men who have steady female partners and found that the lucky dudes getting it on the most were 25-29, less than 172 lbs — and 5 foot 9 or under. See, size does matter. Bow chicka bow wow.
A study found that jews and agnostics are 20 percent more active in the bedroom than Catholics and Protestants, which makes sense because there tends to be more guilt associated with the Christian religions.
Another study found that over 2X as many observant married Jewish women have sex three to six times per week as married women in general. Mazel to that.
John Stamos, delicious yogurt, Santorini—just when you thought the Greeks had it all, science has to make us even more jealous with another fact—they're sex gods and goddesses.
Honestly, who cares about not winning the World Cup when your country can boast that their residents do it more than anyone across the globe!
A Durex survey revealed 87 percent of Greeks surveyed had sex at least once a week. Next up was Brazil (obviously) at 82 percent. As for the USA? We're pretty behind at 53 percent. Womp.
