The Endangered Sex Scene

What Kind of People Enjoy BDSM?

image edited by F. Kaskais  by Michael Castleman M.A. BDSM players are as sexually and emotionally healthy as the general population. Italian researchers recently surveyed the sexuality of 266 Italian men and women who enjoy bondage, discipline, and sado-masochism (BDSM). The study population ranged in age from 18 to 74 and averaged 41. The researchers also surveyed 200 demographically similar men and women not involved in BDSM. The two groups reported similar feelings about their sexuality, but the BDSM players reported less sexual distress and greater erotic satisfaction. The researchers said they hoped their study would “reduce the stigma associated with BDSM.” … Continue reading What Kind of People Enjoy BDSM?

Are men and women that different? Scientists find clues in brain development that say YES

by: Vicki Batts (Natural News) Men and women are equal — but that doesn’t mean we’re the same. The obvious differences between the sexes have long been a source of irritation to increasingly irrational leftists, but recent research has once again confirmed biological reality. Furthermore, scientists have proven that the differences between men and women go way beyond appearances. As it turns out, sex-related hormones and other biological compounds have a profound effect on brain development and general behavioral traits. In other words, men and women don’t just look different on the outside: We are different on the inside, too. From the hormones … Continue reading Are men and women that different?

Porn arouses women and men in same neuronal way, review finds

The results contradict the popular assumption that men react far more strongly to pornography. by Stephen Johnson The review examined the results of 61 brain-scanning studies that involved 1,850 people. The results of the review found no significant differences in how male and female brains respond to viewing visual erotic stimuli. Still, one of the researchers noted that there are sex-specific differences in sexual behavior. It’s commonly thought that men react more strongly to pornography than women do. After all, studies show that, compared to women, men generally have stronger sex drives, harbor higher levels of sexual aggression, and view more pornography. But … Continue reading Porn arouses women and men in same neuronal way, review finds

Dumbing down the population: Study finds that transgender hormone treatments lower IQ

by: Ethan Huff (Natural News) If “being your true self” means attempting to alter your biological sex with hormone “treatments,” then your true self is also quite dumb, as a new study has confirmed that gender reassignment chemicals dramatically lower IQ levels. Published in the journal Frontiers in Human Neuroscience, the paper looked at an 11-year-old boy both before and after he was administered hormone suppressors to become a “transgender,” the purpose being “to review the effects of puberty suppression on the brain white matter during adolescence.” Almost immediately upon being given anti-puberty pharmaceuticals, the young boy’s intellectual performance began to decrease substantially. The … Continue reading Dumbing down the population: Study finds that transgender hormone treatments lower IQ
