Why you should walk backwards often

Published

on

Routines can be mundane.

Take eating, for example. Eating the same food on a regular basis may be boring and also, depending on the type of food, may also be unhealthy.

The same applies to exercise. According to one fitness expert, doing the same fitness routine daily gets boring after a while.

To prevent this, you don’t need to reinvent the wheel or completely give up on the workouts you’re currently doing.

One of the things you could try to add onto your workout routine is walking backwards.

While this may sound odd and weird to some, experts agree that if done safely, it can be beneficial to your well-being.

According to Healthline magazine, there are benefits to walking backwards.

They include an enhanced sense of body awareness. This is attributed to the fact that your senses are heightened when something or someone comes from the back.

Notice how sensory cars become more alert when reversing, the same thing applies to walking backwards. Other mental benefits include, increased body coordination and movement in space, an improvement in your mood, sharpening of your thinking skills and enhanced cognitive control.

As far as the physical benefits go, these include increased strength in lesser-used leg muscles. When running or walking forward, certain parts of the leg muscles are not reached, unlike with walking backwards.

Other benefits include improving your walking technique, offering body balance, faster weight loss and an energy boost.

While walking normally, which is something that we do daily without any conscious thought, walking backwards can help improve your leg endurance and aerobic capacity more rapidly.

This exercise forces your body to adapt to new and unfamiliar demands, which promotes improvements and growth in your physical fitness.

Why keeping your socks on during sex is the BEST!

Published

on

From secret socks to happy socks, socks have become an important accessory in clothing and in fashion.

It then comes as no surprise that taking them off becomes a challenge, especially when you’re about to have sex.

This accessory, much like the condom, has become a key component during sex, and experts tell us why:

Cotton, the material used to make socks, is one of the most comfortable materials for the human body.

Referred to as “foot condoms”, socks play an important role in protecting and nurturing one’s feet and not all of us are blessed with the best toes.

According to sexologists, socks are also great for an orgasm during sex.

For a human being to experience the ultimate orgasm,

comfort, stimulation and concentration are needed to experience the ultimate orgasm. Socks psychologically help with that.

Researchers at the University of Groningen found that 80% of couples reached an orgasm while wearing socks while only 50% managed to climax without socks.

5 things you didn’t know about the 4-5!

Published

on

People often say there’s always a deeper understanding to the way we view things with the naked eye.

Let’s take the 4-5 as an example.

For many of us, this is a sexual reproductive organ found in men. We also know that the 4-5 is an excretory organ.

According to Medical-News-Today, there is more to the human 4-5 than meets the eye.

According to the medical magazine, these are the five things we didn’t know about the 4-5:

1. The 4-5s First Erection Can Be Seen in an Unborn Foetus 

According to a study from 1991, foetal erections most commonly occur during rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. And they can happen a number of times each hour. No one is quite sure why, but it might be the body’s way of testing things out and keeping them running correctly.

2. The 4-5 Can Break

There is no bone in the 4-5, however, it is still possible to break the 4-5. This most commonly occurs during vigorous sex, although doctors have also documented it in people who have fallen out of bed with an erection. Penile fracture, as it is known, is actually the rupture of the fibrous covering of the corpora cavernosa, which is the tissue that becomes erect when engorged with blood.

3. One Can Experience an Erection After Their Death

Also called angel lust or a terminal erection, it happens in the moments after death. This commonly occurs in people who have died from hanging. Scientists believe that it may be due to pressure from the nose on the cerebellum. However, it has also been reported following death by a gunshot wound to the head, damage to major blood vessels, and poisoning.

4. A 4-5 is Twice As Long As You Think

Penises are longer than they look. In fact, around half of the entire length is housed inside the body. The mass of pink erectile tissue, which comprises the so grandly named corpus cavernosum and “corpus spongiosum, extends well into the pelvic region, forming a sort of boomerang shape thus making the 4-5 look twice its size.

5. Ways To Tell The Size Of a 4-5

Although an older study found that penile length was related to both height and foot length, it was a weak relationship, and the authors concluded: Height and foot size would not serve as practical estimators of penis length. A 2006 study published in the International Journal of Impotence Research looked at other correlations. The researchers concluded that penile dimensions are significantly correlated with age, height, and index finger length, but not foot size.

Most dangerous sex positions that you must not try

Published

on

The bible of se suggests some amazing sex positions that we all want to try.

However, there are some positions which have been termed dangerous even though they look very simple.

Accroding to different studies and researches, there are 3 sex positions which are dangerous. They could either tear the vaginal wall or fracture the penis. Here is a list of ones that are dangerous.

1.Cowgirl

According to a study which was published in the US National Institute of Health, the cowgirl position where the woman is on top, can put the male genitalia in danger. Reason being that if and most of the time it is true, there is not enough lubrication when a woman is on top. Due to this the penetration becomes sore. The force of the thrust as per the study, can lead to injuries. Also, if the body weight is entirely on the man, it can prove to be dangerous if not done right.

2. Doggy style

During the doggy style, vaginal tearing is common especially if the penis is penetrated from the wrong side and is forced. Sometimes even lubrication is not enough, even then the position can be injurious. If the penetration enters places which were not ready for the same, then too a tear can be expected.

3. Missionary

Missionary sex is the most commonly practiced sex position. However, according to a report by NZ Herald, Brazilian researchers pointed out that almost 21% penile fractures occur when the men are trying to climax. The giver may be in control of the power and speed of the thrust but if the man hits the pelvic bone without any intention of doing so, it could be dangerous.

So, practice safe sex, try different lubes and make sure there is consent in whatever you wan t to try. Sex should be fun for both the giver and receiver. In case the woman is not as wet, how about trying some foreplay first!
