Zestra’s (You-Really-Don’t-Have-To) Fake-It-Friday

Your Brain on O

Women are prolific, efficient and effective liars…

…At least, they are when it comes to faking orgasms.

Over the past few weeks, Zestra has tweeted, posted, blogged and commented on a number of media stories related to the seemingly irrepressible habit women have of acting out the Big O instead of experiencing one.

Scientists have speculated on why women fake it. How much they fake it. When they fake it. With whom they fake it. What it means when they fake it.

The fake orgasm may be History’s tallest tale.

The thing is, though… WOMEN DON’T HAVE TO. We have the technology! We have Zestra.

Below is a sample of our favorite orgasm news. Just keep in mind that in today’s day and age, “faking it” is a choice, not a necessity.

Women's Health Screen Grab

Women’s Health IDs reasons women fake orgasms, and why it’s not good for them…

Sexy Quotes from Sexy People

Sexperts of the Week – The Kinsey Institute

Kinsey Institute Logo

The Institute for Sex Research (later known as The Kinsey Institute) was founded in 1947 by Dr. Albert Kinsey, a zoologist at Indiana University.

Kinsey and his institute quickly became famous for The Kinsey Reports on sexuality, released as Sexual Behavior in the Human Male and Sexual Behavior in the Human Female in 1948 and 1953, respectively.

Discussing such then-taboos as homo- and bi-sexuality, sadomasochism and marital sexual behavior, Kinsey’s studies incurred a great deal of skepticism and negative press. The Kinsey Report is most famous for its “Kinsey Scale,” a 0 to 6 numbered continuum that suggests sexuality isn’t an unambiguous yes / no proposition, but comprised of complex, fluid impulses and behaviors.

Though Kinsey died in 1956, his work lives on in the Institute, which remains one of the foremost authorities on human sexuality. Using its website and social media to deliver information and answer questions, the Kinsey Institute (and peripheral site Kinsey Confidential) seeks to provide people with a forum to discuss all manner of sexual topics.

Sex tip of the week:

Visit an erotic store together

Sex shop

Maybe it’s the neon XXX, but many people feel awkward visiting an adult store. Yet, a trip to the local sex shop can considerably spice up things in the bedroom. Not only will it give you and your partner some interesting bonding time, the surroundings may jumpstart a conversation that allows each of you to confess any romantic concerns or fantasies.

It Was Like the Sex We Had BEFORE Kids

Suzy H, Medford, NJ (via Share Your Story)

“My hubby and I have two boys and a very busy schedule. My sex drive since I had my 19 month old has been really low. I’d like to chalk it up to schedules and having what my husband calls a vanilla only sex life. Since he is still in his twenties and I, in my thirties, it seemed as if we just couldn’t get it together (if you know what I mean). Thanks to Zestra…there is hope again in our sex life. Zestra put the fun back in our sex life. The first night we tried Zestra, it was like the sex that we had pre-children. Thank you Zestra for helping me and my younger husband jump start our sex lives all over again!”

A couple of nights ago, I was half listening to an episode of The Office, when something Dwight said got my attention…“deer is an aphrodisiac” (Season 2, Episode 8). It was in reference to Dwight’s raise, which he felt Michael and Jan should discuss at The Antler Lodge. After extensive research (okay I Googled), it turns out that Schrute was right – except that deer antlers are the aphrodisiac, not deer itself (hence the Antler Lodge). So, what’s a vegetarian or simply the deer-adverse to do? In a recent Cosmo article titled “Aphrodisiac Foods that Feed Your Sex Drive”, author Molly Triffin pointed out 11 foods that help improve your lust life. Some of them are classics, like chocolate or oysters, but a few are quite surprising, like bananas and watermelon. Bananas contain potassium, which is essential for muscle strength, including those muscles down there. The key benefit? When you orgasm, the “contractions will be superintense.” And to think I was under the impression that bananas only help with recovery after a workout. We’d love to know where you fall on the food continuum – have you ever found a SPECIAL FOOD?

Side note: Guess who else was featured in Cosmo? Cosmopolitan showed some love for Zestra in February issue’s “99 Hot New Sex Tips.. in 20 Words or Less”
