Naked News: Walnuts are good for semen, semen is good for women
We know, we know: It sounds like a bad frat-house joke. But there’s a lot of sex research making the rounds this week, and while some of it is very welcome (among college students, women are no longer judged as harshly for their sexual behavior; also it turns out rape victims actually have a higher rate of pregnancy… and goddamn Todd Akin for making that seem like a good thing), other news seems ripe for abuse (semen can improve women’s moods?!). But, hey, at least the walnut industry should get a boost with the news that eating those nuts improves semen health.
- Thank you, Washington Post, for pointing out that research shows rape victims have a higher rate of pregnancy.
- Apparently, walnuts improve sperm health. So there you go.
- Move over, Akin, there’s a new rape-denier in town: British politician defends Julian Assange and says it’s not really rape if she’s sleeping.
- Lars von Trier wants to show real sex in his next movie. Of course he does. And apparently, star Shia LaBeouf has no problem with that.
- According to a recent study of college students, men and women are now judged more equally when it comes to sexual behavior. We guess Akin didn’t get the memo.
- Planned Parenthood launches $3 million breast cancer initiative. Which’ll probably be a bit more effective than those hot pink “I heart boobies” bracelets.
- Jane Fonda wants to talk to your kids about sex.
- Audible is holding open auditions to read Helen Gurley Brown’s Sex and the Single Girl.
- We can hardly bear to repeat this news — we can only imagine what Maxim et. al. will do with it — but, sigh, we guess you’ll hear about it one way or another: According to new research out of SUNY Albany, performing oral sex or having sex without a condom may benefit both mental and physical health in women. This is according to scientists who studied the effects of semen’s “mood-altering chemicals.” We still half-believe that this “research” was actually conducted in some frat house dorm room at SUNY Albany, but the study was published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior, so we suppose it’s legit.
- Older dads linked to rise in schizophrenia and autism.
- Parents and physicians sue California school district over their abstinence-only “sex-ed” program (sarcastic quote marks ours), claiming it violates state law.
