Stress relief? If so, you might say it’s another application of Dr. Joe’s Cure for Everything.
But it could also be a decision to enjoy themselves while they can because they never know if it will be their last chance.
Results revealed that of those men, 12.4 percent reported having sex more often after the vasectomy, while only 4.5 percent of men reported having sex less often. In addition, vasectomized men reported better erectile function, better orgasms, more sexual desire and overall more sexual satisfaction.
This might be useful in certain circumstances:
Scientists have known for more than a half-century that our pupils dilate whenever we see something we find sexually arousing. This is a non-voluntary response that is controlled by the autonomic nervous system—the body system that controls other automatic responses like heart rate, respiration, and digestion. As a result, it’s not something that people can consciously control, so it gets around the problems of people lying on surveys and faking genital responses.
a new set of studies published in the Journal of Sex Research finds that—among men—pupil dilation doesn’t just reveal the gender of the people they’re attracted to, but also their age.
when viewing images of children, no increase in pupil size was observed for men in any sexual orientation group. In fact, if anything, their pupils actually had a tendency to constrict when viewing kids. The results of all of these studies suggest that pupil dilation holds a lot of promise as a technique for measuring attraction based on both gender and age.
it could also be quite useful to forensic researchers who study pedophilia and other sexual interests that people are strongly motivated to conceal.
It’s not mind reading, but it might be close enough to make life safer for your kids in some situations.
As you read the news about all the sexual harassment claims and denials keep in mind the human mind is a tricky thing. For example:
Several studies have shown that people are more likely to label a given behavior as sex to the extent that their significant other did it as opposed to themselves. In a study of 839 college students (96% heterosexual) who were asked whether oral contact with another person’s genitals counted as sex, it turned out that just 36% of women and 39% of men said it did when they imagined themselves doing it. However, when asked to imagine their partner doing the same thing with someone else, 62% of women and 63% of men suddenly viewed it as sex.
Truth is extremely elusive. Definitions matter. Measurements matter. Numbers matter. There are facts and there are opinions. A lot of what we are seeing in the news are opinions and what is important are the facts.

From Justin J. Lehmiller, 5 Ways Women Can Orgasm That Don’t Involve Sexual Activity:
While I’m sometimes envious of all the sexual advantages women have I only have to remind myself that I never had and never will have the risk of going through childbirth.
Scientists have uncovered the first biological evidence that frequent bedroom activity boosts lifespan by protecting our DNA.
The study focused on telomeres — protective caps on the ends of DNA — that predict a person’s biological age.
Thought of as tiny internal clocks, they shorten with time and eventually become so small that cells die.
Shorter telomeres have been associated with aging, disease and a higher risk of death.
The researchers found women who had sex during the course of the week-long study had telomeres that were up to 30 percent longer.
But relationship quality had no effect on them.
Scientists did not study men, but believe an active love life would also add years to their lives.
I’m thinking they should add nuns, Catholic priests, monks, and prostitutes into their study populations.
In the mean time go with the best evidence to date and don’t be a science denier. If you want to have a better chance at a long and healthy life take Dr. Joe’s advice.
Sex is good for the heart because it reduces the levels of a harmful chemical in the blood, scientists believe – but the effect is only seen in men.
Having sex several times a week can cut lead to better circulation and healthier blood vessels in men, which researchers say is crucial for preventing a build-up of the chemical homocysteine.
But scientists say women benefit much less because sexual arousal is less dependent on having a healthy blood flow, which is a key factor in keeping homocysteine under control.
Having lots of sex when you get older boosts brain power, scientists have discovered, with people who have regular sexual relations scoring better on verbal, visual and spatial perception tests.
A team of researchers from the universities of Oxford and Coventry, U.K., carried out a study on 28 men and 45 women aged between 50 and 83. The participants were asked about their sex lives, including how often, on average, they had had intercourse over the last 12 months. Answers included never, monthly and weekly.
They were also asked questions about their general health and lifestyle, and undertook a test that measured their brain function. This test assessed attention, memory, fluency, language and visual and special abilities. For example, for the verbal test they were asked to name as many animals possible in 60 seconds.

Whether you are a male or a woman, sleeping in the buff offers both of you some pretty great health benefits.
The article goes on to explain each of the following points:
Sounds good to me. In fact, I don’t have a problem with extending the nudity to any other time of the day. In general, I think clothes really only serve two purposes:
Hypothesis are easy to generate for almost any topic. And in a surprising number of cases people are so confident in them they think testing them is pointless.
“If people carry guns there will be blood in the streets!” Nope, not really.
“A ban on ‘assault weapons’ will make people safer!” The data indicates otherwise, “the ban might reduce gunshot victimizations. This effect is likely to be small at best and possibly too small for reliable measurement.”
“The more education about sex and birth control the lower the teen pregnancy rate.” Surprise! Maybe not:
The reigning orthodoxy among public health officials is that the more government spends on sex education the fewer teen pregnancies there will be. Now, however, British researchers have found empirical evidence that appears to demonstrate the exact opposite.
In findings published in the Journal of Health Economics, Nottingham University Business School Professor David Paton and Liam Wright, a research assistant at the University of Sheffield, found budget cuts to sex education classes may have contributed to lower rates of teenage pregnancy in England.
Paton’s study compared changes in the rate of teen pregnancy with the change in the annual funding of teenage pregnancy services for 149 English local authorities between 2008 and 2014.
To their surprise, the researchers found that after sex education budgets were slashed, teen pregnancy rates fell by 42.6 percent.
Of course if you read that closely you should notice the data it is not about “more education” but “more government spending on sex education”.
I’m reminded that for many decades the USSR attempted to increase farm production and failed. While, during the same time period, the US government attempted to decrease farm production and failed.
I am of the opinion all laws intended to modify human behavior should be tested to make sure they achieve the stated benefits with minimal undesired side effects and are an effective use of resources. If they don’t, then the law should be repealed. But, as we know, politicians are more interested in increasing power and virtue signaling than in using government to improve the lives of citizens.
This graph below shows the percentage of people who have had sex in different places outside the bedroom. This is from the UK so things may be different in the US:
I’m a little surprised a car comes in at fourth place. But that may be a US bias. And a green house? How many people even have access to green houses in the US? It can’t be 37%. Are green houses rather common in the UK?
For people obsessed with knowing whether they are “normal” here is a sex calculator to compare yourself to others in how frequently you have sex.
Dr. Joe’s advice is to have sex as often as it is enjoyable and legal for everyone involved and forget about what other people might or might not be doing.
From Justin J. Miller:
The Netherlands doesn’t just have legal prostitution—they also have government-subsidized prostitution for certain segments of the population. Specifically, disabled citizens are eligible to receive government assistance to hire sex workers. Why? Because sex is seen as a right—something that everyone who wants to participate in should be able to enjoy. Also, it’s something that’s seen as good for people’s mental and physical health.
Since Dr. Joe’s Cure for Everything is known to improve your health it’s not surprising that government run health care pays for it. It’s common sense.
<sarcasm>Can we get this added to the replacement for Obamacare? Maybe there would be less resistance to changing Obamacare. The Europeans are doing it. Doesn’t that mean we should do it too?</sarcasm>
Research published in Social Psychology and Personality Science found that among college students, those who enjoyed casual sex reported higher well-being and self-esteem levels, compared with students who did not have casual sex.
Interesting. For years it was said that those who engaged in casual sex had low self-esteem and that casual sex, at best, offered a temporary boost and worsening of self-esteem in the long term.
More research may be needed. And perhaps the research should be done for all age ranges.
I’ve sometimes heard it said that anti-gun people should just think of private gun ownership as religion with the NRA as the formal church organization and leave us alone. I could almost see that working.
And the concept isn’t limited to the church of the gun. From Nashville we have this:
The Social Club had previously been known as a swinger’s sanctuary at a different Nashville location, and when owners announced the move to its current location at 520 Lentz Drive, residents were outraged.
But the owners promised no sex would take place at the club and instead would open a church to members only to get around zoning laws.
But it appears the city is going to make a fuss over it anyway. The report is quite graphic and the undercover inspectors even took pictures of people having sex (they don’t seem to be included in the report). It appears, just like with gun ownership, people want to control others who are “coloring outside of the lines” of the boundaries they have made for themselves.
My primary objective is to be a good companion to you, to be a good partner and give you pleasure and wellbeing. Above all else, I want to become the girl you have always dreamed about.
Harmony is a robot and the culmination of 20 years’ work making sex dolls, and five years of robot research and development.
The race to build the world’s first sex robot
[I read The Stepford Wives in the mid 1970’s. It is a very good book. The movies all sucked. But the technology to create a “Stepford wife” (or husband) is fast approaching. I would prefer we were closing in on warp drive but as pointed out in the article sex is a big driver of technology:
If a domestic service humanoid is ever developed, it will be as a result of the market for sex robots. Online pornography pushed the growth of the internet, transforming it from a military invention used by geeks and academics to a global phenomenon. Pornography was the motivator behind the development of streaming video, the innovation of online credit card transactions and the drive for greater bandwidth.
We live in interesting times.—Joe]
Boomershoot was very well received this year even if the fireball was a failure (it didn’t ignite).
Some were via email and text message, but still…
At the Saturday dinner:
That was the best speech I have heard at Boomershoot in the last ten years.
At High Intensity:
This was the most fun I have ever had with my AR.
At the Long Range event:
I usually get about four or five boomers. This year I lost count.
Joe as usual, We totally enjoyed Boomer Shoot 17.
Thank you and your crew AND family for hosting and putting on such an unusual and fun event.
The location is absolutely wonderful.
I totally enjoy the challenges of the venue.
It s great to meet new shooters and running into old friends.
I’m glad you feel appreciation for being Mr Boomershoot, because, as you mentioned, this event impacts more than just the attendees. Best Western and High Mountain Resort are both outstanding. The small town atmosphere is a treat when you are coming from Seattle.
Again thank you so very much for the wonderful amazing shooting opportunity.
Thank you for yet another FANTASTIC event.
Whatever you did with the formula, this year, *KEEP DOING IT!!!*. I have NEVER, in my 13 (nonconsecutive) years seen fewer targets for the cleanup crew.
Your stated goal for Boomershoot seems to be bearing fruit: the level of marksmanship this year was outstanding, which directly relates to the lack of cleanup targets mentioned above.

From Medical News Today, Ten health benefits of sex:
In some of the cases, particularly the increasing of lifespan, and the boosts to brain power, and self-esteem I question whether there was just correlation or if the sex actually caused the benefit.
Still, there in most cases, there isn’t a downside to Dr. Joe’s Cure for Everything and there may be a significant upside. So, why take unnecessary risks?
