THIS CONDOM REQUIRES CONSENT TO OPEN, USE

The Red Tea Detox

Remember, practicing safe sex requires condoms and consent.

BBDO Argentina is marketing a “Consent Pack” of condoms which require four hands to press four buttons located on the top and sides of the package in order to open and obtain the anti-conception product.

“Why can’t this box be opened with two hands? Because that’s how consent works in relationships,” said a post on sexual products maker Tulipan’s Facebook page.

“Sex is worth everything only if a rule is respected: consent to both do it.”

According to The Next Web, Tulipan has strategically placed the limited edition condoms in bars and at events in Buenos Aires. Users are encouraged to promote the product on social media using the hashtag #PlacerConsentido (permitted pleasure).

The unique condoms were created after  AHF Argentina — an advocacy group for people living with HIV — stated only 14.5% of men in Argentina regularly use condoms, while 65% stated they occasionally used them, and 20% said they never used them.

People on social media commended Tulipan for the clever marketing campaign.

DOLPHINS MAY FEEL SEXUAL PLEASURE: CLITORIS STUDY

Talk about a stimulating results.

According to a new study, female dolphins may experience the same sexual pleasures as humans. The study, Functional Morphology of the Dolphin Clitoris, suggests dolphins may be part of a select and small group of animals that experience sexual pleasure.

It’s known that dolphins have regular sexual intercourse even when they’re not trying to breed. A group of 12 scientists — led by Mount Holyoke College’s Dr. Dara Orbach — studied the genitals of 12 female bottlenose dolphins to see what pleasure they get from year-round hanky panky.

The scientists dissected the dolphin clitorises to see their structure and composition. They researchers furthered studied the anatomy by examining tissue samples under a microscope and using 3D X-ray scans.

What did they find?

The dolphin tissue contained nerve bundles that may increase sensitivity and sexual pleasure. Orbach told the Independent that while dolphin anatomy is not directly comparable to female humans, the mammals can be easily stimulated during copulation.

SHY SPERM DONORS CAN NOW GIVE THEIR SEED WITH THIS EXTRACTOR

There comes a point in life where we all get stage fright — even when making a donation at a sperm bank.

This is where the SW-3701 Sperm Extractor comes in.

Invented by China’s Ding Guijiang, these $8,700 machines feature a motorized and lubricated “massage pipe” that resembles a woman’s vagina.

When erect, a man can stick his penis inside the tube, where the pipe will stimulate the organ with adjustable speed force and heat in order to produce maximum orgasm.

So why was the machine invented? The Chinese government is scared of a severe sperm donation shortage in the future. That, and would-be sperm donors may not be able to perform in a clinical environment.

As reported by the U.K. Sun, The Jiangsu Sanwe Medical Science and Tech Centre sells about 10,000 sperm extractor machines each year, with customers in the U.S., Russia, Germany and France.

REFUSING TO PASS GAS MAY HAVE CONSEQUENCES

READ  Man, 27, charged after reported vandalism incident in Bradford: police - Barrie (News)

It’s likely we’ve all held things in to save face from passing gas in public.

You might think twice before doing it next time as holding in the gas may make you breathing it out of your mouth, says one expert.

University of Newcastle nutrition and dietetics expert Claire Collins said holding in gas could cause abdominal distension, with “some gas reabsorbed into the circulation and exhaled in your breath.”

In a piece published by The Conversation, Collins stated holding in that fart for too long means “the build-up of intestinal gas will eventually escape via an uncontrollable fart.”

Collins noted that held in gas could also lead to a person developing diverticulitis — an inflammation or infection of small pouches which develop along the walls of the intestines, but the evidence to support that wasn’t clear.

But what if you’re still embarrassed to pass gas in public? Collins said the best thing for your health is to just let it out.
