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.
More than 70 million displaced worldwide, says UNHCR
The number of people fleeing war, persecution and conflict exceeded 70 million globally last year – the highest number in the UN refugee agency’s almost 70 years.

The almost 70.8 million people forcibly displaced is up 2.3 million on the previous year, according to the agency’s annual Global Trends report.
This is also double the level recorded 20 years ago.
The number averaged out to 37,000 new displacements every day.
“What we are seeing in these figures is further confirmation of a longer-term rising trend in the number of people needing safety from war, conflict and persecution,” said UN High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi.
“While language around refugees and migrants is often divisive, we are also witnessing an outpouring of generosity and solidarity, especially by communities who are themselves hosting large numbers of refugees.
The actual figure is likely to be higher as the Venezuela crisis is only partly reflected, the report states.
Around four million Venezuelans have fled their country, according to some figures from countries taking them in, making it one of the world’s biggest recent displacement crises.
The report identifies three main groups.
Firstly, there are refugees, or people forced to leave their country because of conflict, war or persecution. In 2018, the number of refugees reached 25.9 million worldwide, 500,000 more than in 2017. Included in this total are 5.5 million Palestine refugees.
The second group is 3.5 million asylum seekers. These are people outside their country of birth who are under international protection, but are yet to be granted refugee status.
Thirdly, there are internally displaced persons, or IDPs. These people are displaced within their country and amount to 41.3 million globally.
More than two thirds of all refugees worldwide came from Syria, Afghanistan, South Sudan, Myanmar and Somalia.
Syria had a considerably higher number than any other country with 6.7 million, followed by Afghanistan with 2.7 million.
Only 92,400 refugees were resettled in 2018, fewer than 7% of those awaiting resettlement.
The global population of forcibly displaced people has grown substantially from 43.3 million in 2009. Most of this increase was between 2012 and 2015 as a result of the Syrian conflict.
However, other conflicts have cropped up and continued across the globe, for example, in Iraq and Yemen in the Middle East, as well as parts of sub-Saharan Africa such as the Democratic Republic of the Congo and South Sudan.
The massive flow of Rohingya refugees to Bangladesh at the end of 2017 after they were driven out of Myanmar’s Rakhine state during military crackdowns was another major crisis.
At more than 1.5 million, Ethiopians were the largest newly displaced population in 2018, 98% of them internally, more than doubling the previous number.
These were mainly attributed to inter-communal violence throughout 2018, with communities living along disputed boundaries most affected.
