Love in the Lab: Top 5 Historical
Discoveries About Sex
The most esteemed thinkers of ancient Greece and Rome had sex on the brain — a lot. And it isn’t any wonder, really, considering that the human instinct to mate is as potent a drive as hunger pangs in the belly or a parched tongue in need of liquid relief. Moreover, back then in the BCs, the birds and the bees know-how that’s taken for granted today remained shrouded in myth and mystery. But that doesn’t mean men didn’t take a stab at sussing out what all of the sexy fuss was about.
Fourth century B.C. thinker Aristotle, for instance, believed that the degree of heat a man produces during sex determines a baby’s sex. If he’s warmer than the woman, a boy it shall be; vice versa gets a girl. Greek contemporary and physician Hippocrates attributed female patients’ mental health instability and anxiety to hysteria, or a wandering womb .And in “Natural History,” written in the 1st century A.D., Roman writer Pliny warned that intercourse would taint lactating women’s breast milk.
As science advanced from philosophy to empirical knowledge over time, groundbreaking discoveries throughout the centuries — like the five on this list — revealed the reproductive equipment inside the human body and even where monogamous love between two sexually active people comes from.
School girl raped at Bangalore!!
1. She was not wearing shorts, jeans, skirts.
2. She was not having cellphone

She use to go school that was her only mistake in this case…….is that new point which should be added in eligibility criteria for getting raped.
Waiting waiting waiting for some mind blowing responses from so called think tanks or political leaders.!!
Do men have a stronger sex drive?
Men think about sex every 7 seconds.
No one knows where that long-held popular shorthand for the robust male sex drive came from, but it likely wasn’t from any science lab. According to a 1994 study from Indiana University’s Kinsey Institute, a little more than half the male population — 54 percent, to be precise — daydreams about sex every day or several times per day. Another study published in 1990 in the Archives of Sexual Behavior asked 49 male college students to tally up their sexual fantasies over a week, and the results averaged to just 7.5 sexy thoughts per day, which works out to only once every 3.2 hours .And for a final nail in the sex-crazed coffin, the highest total of sexual-related thoughts among the male participants in a 2011 study at Ohio State University was 388, or once every 3.7 minutes. Statistically, still a far cry from the 7-second assumption.
Even though sex doesn’t pop up in the male brain with the merry-go-round constancy some might expect, that trio of studies also confirmed that, on average, men think about sex more often than women. In the Ohio State University data, for instance, the most sexually minded woman in the participant pool reported 140 daily fantasies, less than half of her male counterpart’s total. Even during masturbation, which is closely associated with and driven by sexual thought, heterosexual men in a 1990 study from the State University of New York reported “significantly more sexual fantasies” than heterosexual women
It would be fallacious, however, to assume that a single measure like frequency of sexual fantasy concretely proves that men have stronger sex drives than women. Accurately evaluating sex drive must also assess the intensity of that motivation to make whoopee. Do men want sex more often and with more partners, compared to women? Statistically, the answer across the board is yes, and evolutionary biologists have some theories as to why.
