Do you really think you know everything about sex?
Believe it or not, there is an overwhelming lack of knowledge when it comes to sexuality. Every week, researchers come up with new theories that blow your mind. The truth is that no one knows everything about sex. In fact, some of the latest discoveries might shock you. Most of the information we have on this topic is pretty mundane and straight forward.
The human body is fascinating and strange all the same time. It can do things you’ve never thought of. For instance, recent studies have linked women’s orgasms to ovulation. Scientists have also discovered that vaginal orgasm is actually an internal clitoral orgasm. Surprisingly, we tend to be attracted to people who smell good. These are just a few of the many findings you may not know about.
Here are other interesting sex facts to stimulate your curiosity:

Orgasms are scientifically proven to lift your mood and spark your creativity. It applies to both men and women.
