Sex, everyone wants to know more about it, so you might as well be more informed on the subject. Shana O'Connor returns to take some time out of our week and talk about sex.

SEX, SEX, SEX…Did that get your attention?? Hi! I’m Shana O’Connor and this is you’re HER Week In Health. Sex is an extremely huge topic here on EmpowHER.com. We get questions about sex all of the time. It’s important to know the facts. So why don’t we take sometime out of our busy week and let’s talk about sex.

According to a survey conducted by Durex condoms, men across the globe have had on average of 13 sexual partners thought their lifetime, while women have had seven. Guys and girls often shy away from honestly discussing their number; too low and they fear embarrassment, too high and they fear being judged. But there’s never going to be a happy medium, as a Comopolitan survey found. According to the survey just 66% of people are happy with their “number”, while 22% wish they’d slept with less people and 12% would have liked to have slept with more. So what’s your number?

A Onepoll study showed that for 56% of women, men’s facial hair is a strong trigger for sexual arousal. Apparently, a man with three days’ worth of stubble is more sexually attractive than a clean shaven man. Sorry to you baby-faces out there. It makes sense if you think about it. Just think about Johnny Depp and George Clooney. According to Comopolitian, though, it is in fact a long, steamy kiss that gets 35.4% of men aroused and in the mood for love. So throw away your razors guys! And ladies, smack on some lipstick or lip gloss and pucker up! You know what to do!!

According to a study completed by Womensday.com, 25% of Americans are living with an incurable STD. The point here? Simple, take care of your own sexual health. If you have suspicions, get tested more frequently. Knowing your body as well as your partner’s and using honesty, sensitivity, and safe sex can ensure you love is the focus, rather than your disease. STD’s can also be transmitted during oral sex, so being in a trusting monogamous relationship and practicing safe sex is the best way to protect yourself from HPV to Chlamydia, also consider a full screening at your next physical.

The moral of the story is be smart and and be safe and most of all have fun.

I’m Shana O’Connor for EmpowHER.com and don’t forget to join us right here every week for another edition of HER Week in Health!

The moral of the story is to have less sex partners. In part, what makes us different than animals is that we have the ability to rise above our biological urges and consider the consequences.

What silly, imature thinking. I have been married and faithful to the woman of my dreams, my best friend and lover for 41 years. We make love several times a week. I doubt the depth of love and respect we have for each other would be possible if we would have bought into crap like this when we young. I have had an average of one sex partner and I am not interested in another. I worship the ground she walks on!!!!!!! How many women out there would love to find a guy who would do the same for them. I doubt you'll find one with your pants down and your legs spread apart.

She is typical of most woman, dont care about sex,unless its to trick a man into marriage, or have a kid to financially trap him, doesnt that make prostitution sound better?

This was the most non-informative story in a long time... Is the writer a new kid on the block? Please don't return until there's something INTERESTING, NEW and WELL-WRITTEN to share.
