In fact, it feels amazing – if it’s done right. Some people seem to be really good at it, and some not so much. What’s amazing is that you can have sex in so many different ways and positions – it is really quite a gift that nature has bequeathed to us. Here are 5 mind blowing true facts about sex.
- The vibrator was once prescribed by doctors. That’s right – it wasn’t that uncommon in the Victorian-era to visit a doctor – instead of giving you a prescription for a depression medication, he would tell you to get a vibrator. Yes, in the old days vibrators cured “hysteria,” depression, and even grief.
- Semen can prevent tooth decay. I wouldn’t swap out your toothpaste for semen, but doctors have found that semen has a healthy enough dose of zinc and calcium, which can actually prevent your teeth from rotting.
- You know that little smiley face on your rabbit vibrator? Ever wonder why it’s there?

The solution: a smiley face.
- Do you know what a merkin is? A merkin is a pubic wig that was widely used by 15th century women that “got around” a lot to cover pubic lice and other disgusting sexual ailments. Kind of similar to the reason why Indian food is spicy, but we won’t go there right now. Anyways, over the next couple of hundred years, the merkin evolved to become the bottom half of a burlesque costume – you know that fuzzy thing they wear.
- In Hong Kong it is perfectly legal for a woman to kill her husband if he cheats on her. While you’d undoubtedly get sent to prison for life in the US and most other places in the world – in Hong Kong, you might get a party. The law, however, stipulates that you must kill him with your bare hands. That oughta show him!
