Wearing a Kilt Might Be Good for Your Sperm

kilt

Going commando might be good for your sperm. That’s the claim of one researcher, who argues that men who wear kilts may be more virile.

Kilts, worn as they were meant to be worn, without underwear, lets our laddies swing freely in the breeze, creating, according to researcher Erwin Kompanje, the “ideal physiological scrotal environment.” Exposed to the bracing Highland coolness, testicles will make robust sperm.

Today’s hipsters wear tight pants, which keep their balls close to their body and its usual 98.6 degree temperature. But according to Kompanje, the optimal temperature for sperm is about 3 degrees Celsius lower, meaning that if your balls hang low, you’ll have healthier and more abundant sperm. Though he hasn’t found definitive scientific proof, the free-spirited scientist argues that there are other benefits to wearing a kilt.

“A kilt will get you noticed no matter where you are. Research indicates that men wearing a kilt experience a strong sense of freedom and masculinity…The kilt gives a man a sensuous awareness of his own body and how it will be seen by others.”

We can’t argue with that.

Do Men Fake Orgasm?

by thepleasurechest

whymenfakeit

Men fake orgasms too. Or at least that’s one of the claims of a new book by Dr. Abraham Morgentaler, a professor of urology at Harvard Medical School. Salon has a fascinating interview with Dr. Morgentaler, the author of Why Men Fake It: The Totally Unexpected Truth About Men and Sex. The discussion touches on everything from changing gender roles to erectile dysfunction, but it’s the claim about men faking orgasm that has drawn the most attention. He cites examples from his own practice and mentions an online survey in which 31% of men claim to have faked it, at some point in their lives.

“It turns out the reasons men fake it are actually pretty similar to the reasons that women fake it. In their minds — and we can argue whether or not it’s productive thing to do — but in their minds, it’s actually a form of kindness. They’re kind of letting the other person know that they’ve done a good job.

Fair enough, but you might be wondering how men fake it. On that point, Morgentaler is quiet, suggesting you buy his book. Our friend Reid Mihalko has some thoughts on this topic in the video below.

So we’d like to ask our male readers. Have you ever faked it? If so, why? And how? Feel free to tell us in the comments below.

What Lesbians Think About Penises

by thepleasurechest

Please enjoy this video interviewing lesbians about their feelings on penises.


Previously, they interviewed gay men on vaginas.

Both of these videos are amusing, but we also wonder what kinds of responses they would have gotten if they’d talked to trans folks or people with trans partners.

The Male Birth Control You’ve Never Heard Of

1

by thepleasurechest

Have you heard of RISUG? It’s a revolutionary birth control method for men. RISUG is an acronym for reversible inhibition of sperm under guidance; it’s a quick, relatively painless procedure developed by Indian scientist Sujoy Guha.

In a traditional vasectomy, the vas deferens is severed. In Guha’s procedure, the vas deferens is injected with a nontoxic polymer that renders any sperm passing through sterile for up to 10 years. When you’re reading to make babies, you simply inject a solution of baking soda and water to flush out the polymer. Can it really be that simple? And why isn’t RISUG a household word?

Check out this video from Discovery News to learn more.

The Best Gifts For Guys

0

by thepleasurechest

Think sex toys are just for women? You’re in for a surprise. And so is he if you give him something sexy for the holidays. Here are some of our favorite toys for boys…

Fun Factory Cobra Libre
High tech gadgets are a dime a dozen during the holidays. But this is probably the only “penis head stimulator” you’ll find under the tree! Fun Factory’s innovative Cobra Libre is waterproof, rechargeable and allows you to choose from a seemingly endless variety of escalating, pulsing, thumping, buzzing and wavelike sensations. Plus, it looks like a race car!
$149.95
Tenga Flip Hole
Sometimes the best gifts are the most mysterious. From the outside, the Tenga Flip Hole looks like a futuristic flashlight or modernist paperweight. Open it up and you’ll discover an ultra-soft masturbation sleeve with a totally unique tunnel full of stimulating nubs, curves and ridges. Easy to clean and fun for both solo and partner play.
$99.95
 
Velv’Or J’Naja Cock Ring
There are so many cock rings to choose from, but here’s a ring to rule them all. This elegant, ergonomic ring is made from a unique nylon fiber, cozy enough to be worn all day. It’s also got a curved nub that gently and firmly massages the perineum for enhanced pleasure.
$54.95
Duet Vibrating Cockring
If you believe it is better to give and receive, you can’t go wrong with this vibrating ring. The Duet has two vibes– one below to buzz his balls and perineum, and one on top to satisfy his partner. The soft, stretchy elastomer surface is covered in pleasing nubs for added excitement.
$44.95
SpareParts Pete Trunks
If your partner is trans, a pair of packing underwear may be just the right fit. SpareParts makes a range of garments for packing, but we’re partial to the Pete Trunks, a sexy set of boxer briefs, specially designed to securely hold a packer. They’re made of a lightweight, breathable material and can be worn comfortably under daily clothes.
$39.95
Sidekick Sleeve
Here’s a great stocking stuffer for the horny dude on your gift list. This super-stretchy masturbation sleeve is amazingly versatile. The reversible design allows him to choose between a smooth and slick stroke or a ridge-filled ride. The open-ended design means you can play too.
$13.95
Liquid Silk Lubricant
If you plan to play over the holidays, it’s best to keep some lube on hand. We love Liquid Silk because it looks and feels just like male ejaculate. It’s a favorite among trans guys and folks who enjoy gender play. Creamy, long lasting and glycerin-free.
$1.95-$18.95
