Study Finds Funny People Have Sex Appeal

Here’s good news for our comedian friends. Psychologists at Stirling University in the UK have found that funny guys are perceived as more attractive. The researchers interviewed men and women, asking what items they’d bring to a desert island, and then played the recordings for another group of subjects.

Men who were funnier in their answers were judged to be more attractive by the opposite sex, particularly when being judged for their potential as a short-term lover rather than a long-term partner.

Humour is interpreted as a form of flirtatiousness, researchers explained, and is especially attractive for a brief liaison because it “nurtures an impression of not being serious or willing to invest in a mate”.

So while having a sense of humor might help you get laid, it may also send the message that you’re not serious relationship material. There’s also (sorta) good news  for funny women. The men in the study found them more attractive, “‘because a woman’s humour is taken as a sign that “she will be receptive to his advances.’”

So, if you’re in the mood for a spring fling, maybe you should ditch the bar scene and come to one of our Performance Anxiety comedy nights.

This Is Lelo’s Next Toy. No Foolin’!

0

by thepleasurechest

gasm

Needless to say, we got a kick out of Jimmyjane’s elaborate April Fool’s stunt– the unveiling of The Gasm, “the world’s first eco-friendly, self-assembly vibrator.” Made of recycled tires and wood pulp, Lelo’s Gasm was said to use a hand crank to charge the battery. It also came with a set of assembly instructions that look torn from the pages of an Ikea instruction manual. It was a brilliant prank, a master troll. The press release, sent just a few days before April 1st, successfully fooled The Daily Mail .

But the real punchline to this joke is that the faked Gasm was so popular, it inspired Lelo to consider making a real one. Fast Company spoke to Steve Thompson, Lelo’s global head of marketing about the unexpected success of the Gasm:

Looking at the reaction to their little prank, they wondered if it was as farfetched as they had assumed. Recycled wood pulp is “not ideal,” according to Thompson, and as for recycled car tires? “I think we would stick firmly to silicone in that respect.” But using 100% recycled materials, a hand-cranked power system and a disassembled, low-packaging delivery: each of these are “100% achievable.” His product designers are now working on a product that would embrace all of these “eco-friendly” features. GÄSM, the joke, may become a reality and soon.

We can’t wait to see if Lelo’s elaborate joke becomes the next eco-friendly sex toy. We’re also wondering if there’s any interest in the NoseBanger.
