Are women having orgasms in bed? Men seem to think so. According to the National Survey of Sexual Health and Behavior, 85 percent of men believe their partner climaxed during their most recent love-making session. If that's the case, women everywhere deserve a shot at an Oscars for their in-bed acting abilities. Because, according to the very same NSSHB study cited above, only 64 percent of women reported reaching orgasm during their most recent sexual event—which means that the other 21 percent are most likely faking it. What's more, an online survey over at SkinnyScoop.com reveals that a whopping 80 percent of women would prefer a massage to sex with their partner. This doesn't seem all that shocking to me. On most days, I'd prefer a box of Cheez-its to another round of unsatisfying sex.

Men in the Land of the Rising Sun are losing their libidos. The story goes that 36 percent of boys ages 16 to 19 in Japan have "little to no interest" in sex. Over 80 percent of 20-year-old Japanese dudes are currently not dating anyone. And half of the two decaders have NEVER had a girlfriend (note: some writers were into their 20s before they had their first girlfriends, so let's not judge). Dig this: the young ladies are even more uninterested in sex.
Lila here~ A funny thing happens when you’ve been with the same person for a really long time. Even if you still like them a lot, you may find that you’re just not that into having sex with them… or so you think. Your libido may be waning, or there are too many other details on your mind between work and managing the home, or the kids are clamoring for attention; there are plenty of excuses not to hav
I was listening to Alicia Keys, “A Woman’s Worth” and heard “a man always comes first”. Even though Alicia is one of my favorite artists, I disagree with that statement.

A study of older Australian men shows that they want sex more regularly. Essentially, libido does dip as men age, but some men stay very interested in sex as their bodies still produce goodly amounts of testosterone. Of the 2,700 men polled between the ages of 75 and 95, roughly half still found sex to be between somewhat and very important, though less than a third were getting it with any regularity. Which means that around 20 percent of old Australian men are not getting the sexin' they want.
