These are the biggest mistakes you make when you’re having sex
Whilst everyone enjoys sex, you’re not likely to have a good experience every time you do the deed. Depending on your choice of sexual partner, your mood and even what you’ve had to eat earlier, you could be resigning yourself to a rather disappointing sexual encounter.
What makes this even worse is the expectations that us humans posit on our sexual partner. We all have our own criteria for what we find attractive, and in the majority of cases this can be pretty narrow. While some people prefer conventional paradigms of beauty, others have more niche expectations.
A survey of 5,000 heterosexual adults conducted by the Australian jewellery firm, Forktip, helped clarify what exactly people find frustrating in a sexual partner, and it’s enough to quash the hopeless romantic in anyone.
Researchers asked participants about their sex lives and discovered what exactly men and women consider to be turnoffs. According to the survey, women’s least favourite things in a male sexual partner are the following: “weird noises”, penises which are “too small”, premature ejaculation and changing position “too frequently”.
The answers that men gave, however, were decidedly more cosmetic. They took affront with women who they deemed to be “too loose”, had breasts that were “too small” or a “lack of booty”. They also specified that “too much noise” could be a major turnoff.
Researchers also quizzed respondents about what could ruin a burgeoning sexual encounter. Participants stated that they’re not likely to have a good time if they have sex whilst being hungry or hungover. They also said that they prefer to wait to have sex after visiting their family or their significant other’s relatives.
Forktip took the time to ask respondents a number of questions relating to their attitudes towards sex and relationships. A surprising amount of people seemed to be ashamed about the number of sexual partners they’d had with 79.2 per cent of women admitting to lying to their current boyfriend about the number of exes they had. For men, the number stood at a substantial 50 per cent.
Researchers also delved into the future of sexual relations in this modern age. They asked participants whether they would consider replacing their significant other with a sex robot if the experience was more pleasurable and both men and women were more than willing to consider the possibility. 49.6 per cent of women said that they would give it a go and that number jumped to 71.3 per cent for men.
Forktip tried to gauge what could possibly make sexual encounters better by asking those surveyed what they like to do right before sex, and the answers were all geared towards enhancing the experience. The top three answers were drinking alcohol or coffee and doing drugs.
Well, I don’t know about you but I found that rather illuminating. For something that’s so natural, sex can sure be a complicated thing.
Zimbawe’s doctor goes missing after masterminding strike
Fearless Zimbabwe’s minister of health has called on the government to address insecurity lapses that has lead to the disappearance Peter Magombeyi, the head of a doctor’s union, who disappeared on Saturday.
Fears are rising over the fate of Zimbabwe medical doctor Dr Peter Magombeyi after he sent a message to say he had been abducted in that country by unknown persons – apparently for demanding a “living wage”.
An AFP report earlier on Sunday quoted the Zimbabwe Hospital Doctor’s Association (ZHDA) as saying Magombeyi had not been heard from since he sent a WhatsApp message on Saturday night saying he had been “kidnapped by three men”.
Zimbabwe doctors, who earn a miserly equivalent of about R3 000 are on strike to press for better wages, equipment and medicines in state hospitals.
The ZHDA has reportedly accused state security forces of abducting the doctor because of his role in organising work stoppages.
This week some doctors said the death of deposed Robert Mugabe, 95, in a Singapore hospital on 6 September was an indication of how bad health services in Zimbabwe
“Dr Magombeyi’s crime is only to ask for a living wage for his profession. This is a reflection of the troubles born out of refusal to implement Political Reforms.”
The Zimbabwe government led by Emmerson Mnangagwa has not publicly commented on the doctor’s disappearance
Turkey: Group calls for immediate action against Femicide
Emine Dirican, a beautician from Istanbul, tried to be a good wife. But her husband hated that she worked, that she socialized, even that she wanted to leave the house sometimes without him.
She tried to reason with him. He lashed out.
“One time, he tied me — my hands, my legs from the back, like you do to animals,” recalls Dirican, shuddering. “He beat me with a belt and said, ‘You’re going to listen to me, you’re going to obey whatever I say to you.’ “
She left him and moved in with her parents. In January, he showed up, full of remorse and insisting he had changed. She let him in.
In her mother’s kitchen, he grabbed her by the hair, threw her to the floor and pulled out a gun.
“He shot me,” she says. “Then he went back to my mom and he pulled the trigger again, but the gun was stuck. So he hit her head with the back of the gun.”
Her father, who was in another room in the house, heard the gunshots and ran over. Dirican almost bled to death after a bullet ripped through a main artery in one of her legs.
“I was telling my father, ‘Daddy, please, I don’t want to die.’ “
Femicide — killing women because of their gender — is a longstanding issue in Turkey. Nearly 300 women have been killed so far this year, according to the Istanbul-based advocacy group We Will Stop Femicide, which has been tracking gender-related deaths since Turkish authorities stopped doing so in 2009.
