Does a High IQ Equal a Better Sex Life?

It’s long been the subject of debate that the more intelligent you are, the more likely you are to have a better sex life, but where do you draw the lines? Is a simple person more likely to enjoy a simple sex life? Does intelligence mean better informed choices, a bigger sexual appetite and the desire to try different things? The answer is yes, yes, yes! But you need to be clever in the sense that your mind is a very powerful sexual tool. Think sexy to be sexy. Get that imagination going and visualize your desires.

A survey in the Telegraph, carried out by Lovehoney, begs the question

‘Does a high IQ equal a high sex drive?’

This survey shows that in Universities and Colleges around the country, Cambridge leads the field for greatest amount of sex toy purchases, closely followed by Oxford, but does that therefore demonstrate an intelligence / sex drive correlation?

In general, people who strive to achieve great things and better themselves, tend to try and do this in all aspects of their lives and consequently, their drive in the bedroom, is no different to the boardroom. The change in attitude to sex and sex lives over the last few years has also helped us be more open and relaxed towards trying new things. Consequently, a sex toy is not seen as a replacement for a partner or something that should be used alone and in secret, rather than an enhancement to your sex life and something that can be enjoyed together.

In conclusion, we’re not saying you have to be a total genius to enjoy a wonderful sex life. Harness your emotional and creative intelligence in a positive way and it will increase your enjoyment. Thoughtful people will always make better partners than selfish and uninspiring ones, regardless of how beautiful they are.

A perfect toy to get your creative juices flowing, is the Marylebone Dildo  – available now on our website in two sizes and two curves, to suit all needs and desires. Please use intelligently.

These are our 10 good reasons to make sex one of your ‘5 a Day’ and live a longer, healthier and happier life. Sounds too good to be true? Let us tell you how it can help..


Sex helps strengthen your immune system

If you have sex at least twice a week, the body has been seen to release more antigens into your system which helps fight off infections like colds and flu. Just think how healthy you could be if you made sex one of your ‘5 a day’, every day!

 Sex can reduce stress and lower your blood pressure

Any sort of pleasurable physical contact can improve your blood pressure significantly. Whether it’s just a quickie or a full on session, penetrative sex helps you to chill out, de-stress and lowers that blood pressure, for a happier, healthier you

 Sex could lower his risk of prostate cancer

According to studies done by Harvard Medical School, the risk of developing Prostate Cancer is reduced in men that have sex and ejaculate more often. A win/win situation for most men – having a good sex life = improving chances of living healthier for longer

Regular sex keeps you looking young

Apparently if you have sex 3 times a week or more, it can keep you looking up to 10 years younger. A natural twinkle in your eye and far more fun than face creams!

Sex can make you smarter

It has been proven that if you have sex more often, it reduces stress and you brain functions far better when you’re happy and relaxed. Therefore, more sex can actually make you smarter

Sex helps you sleep better

Having sex is great exercise and like going to the gym or for a run, it increases your heart rate which then leads on to better relaxation. For men, the hormone prolactin is released after orgasm, which makes you feel lethargic, leading to feeling naturally sleepy. Have orgasms and sleep better

 Having sex can help with pain relief

Studies have shown that people who have a regular sex life can cope better with pain and take far less pain relief medication. For women, masturbating is a great way to help relieve menstrual cramps – a technique women have been intuitively using for years

Sex is enjoyable exercise

Let’s face it – it’s far easier and appealing than going to the gym for most of us. If you have sex 3 times a week, not only are you healthier and happier, you also burn approximately 7,600 calories a year and you don’t even have to get out of bed

Having sex strengthens your Pelvic Floor

By having sex, you are naturally giving your insides a workout and strengthening your pelvic floor. Stronger pelvic floor muscles give you better orgasms, so in theory, the more sex you have, the better your sex life gets

Regular sex makes you live longer

The wonderful conclusion of all of these facts means that if you have regular sex, you are giving yourself the best chance of being healthier, happier, smarter, more chilled out and will actually live longer to enjoy all of these benefits.

No excuses now! Get on and enjoy that sex life to the full – it’s good for you!

You can have great sex without an erection

What do you do when you can’t achieve an erection when you want one? It can happen to any man at any time, but it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy great sex and intimacy. Erectile problems can be caused by many different things. Stress, anxiety and life pressures can all contribute, so once you have been to see your GP to rule out any medical problems, it’s time to consider your options. There are lots of ways of continuing a fulfilling and enjoyable intimate relationship. Once you remove the focus of sex being all about penetration and reaching orgasm, it opens up all sorts of possibilities to enjoy yourselves.

Talk about it

Be open with your partner and discuss your hopes, desires and hidden kinks. Explore what you both like and would like to try. How you like to be touched? Does rope play, temperature play or being blindfolded turn you on? Just talking about it brings a better level of understanding, intimacy and trust into your relationship, building closeness and stimulating arousal. Now is your chance to try something new, maybe something you haven’t dared to ask for before. Be bold – it could be brilliant!

It’s not all about Sex

Develop your intimacy in other ways other than sex. Go for a long walk, holding hands, being aware of your touch and your bodies brushing against each other.The simple pleasure of being together. Walks are a good place to chat – sometimes it’s easier to broach delicate subjects when you’re not facing each other.

Indulge in a leisurely meal together – shared finger foods can be a more intimate way of enjoying a relaxed dinner with a sensual element.

Try a scalp, foot or body massage with scented oils. Massage is a wonderful way to get up close and personal with your loved one without having sex and can be a great way to relax you both.

Explore a more intimate touch

Oral sex is often just thought of as being part of foreplay, but when it comes to getting really intimate with your partner, it’s about as close and personal as it gets. Giving oral sex can be just as pleasurable as receiving and fellatio can be highly enjoyable whether a penis is erect or not.

Hands and fingers are incredibly sensitive and stroking, drawing circles and maybe even gently using your nails up and down the body heightens the senses and teaches you where your body is most reactive.

The perineum, between the anus and penis is incredibly sensitive, as are the scrotum, penis and testicles regardless of an erection. Most men will find great pleasure from being touched, fondled and caressed whether erect or not. The penis does not need to be the focus for intimate enjoyment.

Experiment with Anal Sex

This can be a sensitive subject to some men but if you can remain open to trying it, it can be an immensely pleasurable experience. Simple anal sex can be quite enjoyable. Prostate or p-spot stimulation is also a revelation to most men. Massaging the prostate gland can stimulate intensely enjoyable sensations and orgasm without erection or ejaculation.

It is important to plan ahead. Do your research on what to do or expect. Buy a good quality lube and use plenty of it. Invest in good toys to enhance your experience (see below) and most importantly, take your time. It will be a completely new sensation and will take a little getting used to but well worth a try.

Play with toys

Sex toys for both sexes are now more common and acceptable in the bedroom than they have ever been. There should be no guilt or shame in adding a little fun into your sex lives and toys should always be seen as an addition to your intimate playtime to enhance your enjoyment.

If you are discovering the pleasures of anal sex, do your research, check out the bloggers recommendations and invest in some good quality toys. For a first experience, our Aluminium range of Plugs and Dildos are perfect, as they are lightweight and glide smoothly, especially with a good lube.

Alternatively, try using a vibrator on his genitals – they’re not just for girls! They can bring about wonderful sensations when used all over the body, on the penis and around the perineum too.
