5 Sex Lessons From the Animal Kingdom

A recent study shows that deer mice are monogamous and have "superior stress tolerance and blood sugar regulation." That would make us think that for humans, a monogamous relationship would prove to offer health benefits, but what else can we learn from the animal kingdom? Here are the first five of 10 sex lessons from a recent MSNBC article and my interpretation of each one. I'll warn you, some of these are a little out there, but enjoy!

  1. Do not turn sex into warfare: If you nag your guy and pressure him into having intimacy, it'll drive him away and you both could end up unhappy.
  2. Avoid weaponizing your penis: If a guy pierces his business or does anything else that may make sex painful to a woman, she won't want to engage in the act with him.

  1. Try woman on top: Guys like to be on top so they can be in control of the speed and depth of intercourse. If the woman is on top though, there's a better chance sex will last longer, so she's more likely to have an orgasm. If she has an orgasm, the guy will end up feeling very proud and confident that he can please his lady. This in turn will translate to having sex more often. Win-win.
  2. For a great afterglow, choose an orgy: I don't know about this one. Rats have been known to mate in groups and switch partners in the middle of copulation. While free love sounds fun, given today's rates of STIs, this just doesn't seem safe.
  3. Gifts don’t always work: If you're having issues in the intimacy department, a dozen roses from the guy won't necessarily solve a sexual conflict.

theres a difference between being shy and uninterested and the guy seems uninterested. how do I know? because when a guy really likes you, you don't have to ask, you know. so find someone more worth your time ;)

orgies certainly won't improve intimacy, so that suggestion is a little out of line

My boyfriend has a Prince Albert piercing. To be honest, it's not all that exciting either way. Now, if the piercing vibrated...hmm...possibly a different story...

Daisy, if you want I'd re-ask this as a blog post in the group therapy session, you'll probably get more responses that way ;). But anyway, just spend more time with him, I was/am a pretty shy guy, so I understand the weirdness of having a woman be so direct, on the other hand, the directness could have struck something in him, and he just doesn't know how to respond, such as if he does like you, he's just a bit shy and needs a little bit of time to show response. One thing about being so shy sometimes, showing restraint. It's not as easy to just initiate a hug with everyone, or just anyone, let alone a kiss. I rarely give any hugs, probably go a whole week or more without one.

Umm... Daisy, I'd just ask him out somewhere low key and away from other people so you can talk. Whatever your hobbies/interest are. He may not know enough to know if he likes you or not. IDK. Either way, good luck.

Aww... love the zebras. I'm biracial...(people just assume you do anyway) #3 is very true. Weaponizing...yeah, rape is never a good thing. Just thinking of rats having sex makes me not want to.

Need help!!! This is not a soap opera story but I would LOVE some advice. I'm usually great at advice but taking advice from myself is difficult because heart and head conflict. Here's the story, the guy I like we'll call Mike. I met him through friends in April 08. Since one of his closest friends is also a close friend of mine I asked who this guy was and that I thought he was hot. Turns out Mike was also going to my friend telling him he thought I was hot and asking about me. According to our mutual friend, (who will be called Jim) we were both interested but he is shy and has a hard time speaking to women, let alone asking them out, so Jim's advice was to continue seeing Mike when friends would get together and go from there... We've hung out a lot since and I've done what I can to get him to open up. Last month he asked me to come over to a friends house to watch a sporting event. I not only went but I made him dinner. This day happened to be sweetest day :) My question is this: When I first met him I knew he was shy, so I went semi full force and invited him out with friends, flirted when possible and tried to show him I liked him. According to Jim, Mike is NOT used to girls being so direct and I might seem intimidating. I say BS but I've spent more time lately with him and we seem really well matched so what do I do now?? Last week we ran into each other at a bar and ended up hanging out with some mutual friends until 1:30am. He was attentive and sweet, but still didn't ask me out, no hug when he left. Certainly no kisses. Since we had SO much fun last week I told him to try to make a night available this week to hang out with our friend Jim and his gf. Any other advice as to how to handle a shy guy, or does he just not like me??? I don't want to be a fool and I really don't think he doesn't like me, I'm just not sure what's holding him back?? Advice is needed. Thanks! - Daisy
