Sex on the Net XI

Sex – What would we do without it? It is the source of so much pleasure, pain and trouble. Below are some more sex-related stories in a continuation of the Sex on the Net series.
How long should penetrative sex last? Well, if you take your cues from blue movies, a very long time. According to a survey published in Journal of Sexual Medicine, all you need for some great sex is 7 to 13 minutes. Americans and Canadians who were asked how long sexual intercourse should last, said that 7 to 13 minutes this was the most desirable.
Intercourse lasting between three and seven minutes was “adequate”, but anything less was “too short” and beyond 13 minutes was “too long”.
The aim of the survey was to dispel the myth that “good” sex had to last a long time.
“In the fantasy model of male sexuality, men have large penises, rock-hard erections, and can sustain sexual activity all night long,” researcher Dr Eric Corty was quoted as saying in an Australian newspaper.
“It appears that many men and women hold this fantasy. The results from the present study, by providing a realistic not a fantasy model of sexuality, are useful both in treating people with sexual concerns and dysfunctions, and, with wider circulation, in preventing the onset of sexual dysfunctions.”
Americans expect penetrative sex to last between 15 and 20 minutes, according to US studies, even though reports suggest it is over in less than half this time.
Although this is not truly a sex story, it does involve private parts and bodily excretions……Eight British soldiers have been forced to return home from Norway after they reportedly stripped naked and urinated on each other in a bar. They were in Norway on an Arctic training exercise.
“It’s being taken extremely seriously,” a spokesman for the defence ministry in London said. He continued: “We can confirm that eight soldiers from 59 Commando Regiment Royal Engineers were arrested by the Norwegian police following inappropriate behaviour.
The incident took place at the Sfinx Bar in the town of Harstad, Norway.
“They were drunk and there was a problem in the bar, but we are quite used to dealing with British soldiers like this,” Harstad police spokesman Gair Pederson was quoted as saying.
The Norwegian police arrested the 8 soldiers for inappropriate behavior, they paid a fine and were released. However they are not out of trouble yet. The unit will consider internal disciplinary action against the soldiers regarding this incident.
I guess that after having so much to drink the soldiers just wanted a golden shower!!
The Italian Supreme Court has outlawed men from touching their genitals in public. In a case involving a 42-year-old man from Como, the court ruled that he had broken the law by “ostentatiously touching his genitals through his clothing”. His lawyers said he had a “compulsive, involuntary movement” because of uncomfortable overalls.
Crotch-grabbing is an ancient superstitious habit in Italy that is believed to ward off the evil eye – it is traditional for men to do it if passed by a hearse or when discussing serious illness or disasters. The phrase “Io mi tocco” (“I touch my”) is as common as crossing fingers for good luck. Nevertheless the court found that the man had acted indecently:
The court said his behavior was an “act contrary to public decency” and that the rules “require everyone to abstain from conduct that is potentially offensive to collectively held feelings of decorum”.
The judges pointed out that if men needed to grab their crotches, they should wait until they were in the privacy of their own home. The man was fined and ordered to pay court costs.
A judge has denied an Iowa man’s claim that he shouldn’t have been fired for repeatedly requesting help to procure a prostitute.
Neil Jorgensen, 62, of Kalona, worked at Riverside Casino and Golf Resort in Riverside and was given a gift certificate and free night’s stay at the casino hotel to mark a year’s employment. After eating and drinking at a casino restaurant, he returned to his hotel room about midnight and later called hotel managers about hiring a prostitute. When managers refused to help him, he made a call to the adjacent resort and made the same request.
Hotel workers were sent to Jorgensen’s room to ask him to stop demanding prostitutes. When they arrived at his room, Jorgensen answered the door in the nude, human resources director Tim Donovan said. Jorgensen was fired the next day.
“The advertisement is that it’s just like Las Vegas, so I thought I was in Las Vegas,” Jorgensen testified at a hearing regarding his request for unemployment benefits.
Administrative Law Judge Terence Nice turned down Jorgensen’s claim for unemployment benefits.
