Q Is Underwater Sex Safe?
I have heard sex in water such as a pool or lake can be dangerous. Any truth to these stories?
A Dear Rik,
Sex underwater can be fun, passionate and only dangerous if you are splashing about in shark-infested waters. For women however, the risk comes when you have hard, thrusting intercourse in any kind of water, particularly in a lake or river. What happens is that the penis acts like a piston, pushing the water to the back of the vagina and through the small hole in the cervix (where the sperm swim up) and into her reproductive organs, and eventually out her fallopian tubes to slosh around in her abdomen. There, with nowhere to go, the water becomes septic and she can get a nasty infection. Pushing water into her vagina can be potentially fatal when you use any kind of pressure like with a garden hose. Gushing water can go inside her so fast that it could rupture the delicate, string-sized fallopian tubes. So if you want to fool around in the water try oral sex, or rolling around in the surf.
Q How Long Does A Man’s Sperm Live?
How long does a man’s sperm live inside the vagina?
A Dear Confused,
The average amount of time that sperm can swim inside a woman’s “hostile” reproductive tract is three days, but there are lots of cases of “super sperm” which have lived for up to five days after intercourse. Eeks! So if you are playing Russian roulette with your birth control, count on five days before your body finishes off the last of the sperm.
Q Is Their A Favorite Female Sexual Position?
I am curious as to whether or not there is a “favorite” female sexual position. Any thoughts?
A Dear Kirk,
According to the Hite report on female sexuality, the favorite sexual position of the women surveyed was the female superior position or “The woman on top,” ride-em-high position. Most women can control the depth of penetration by being on top, and by rubbing their clitoris against the base of the penis and the pubic bone, reach orgasm more easily. Being on top you can also take your time and have your male partner grinding his teeth in frustration as you enjoy the experience and not cut to the chase. That being said, everybody is an individual and lots of women prefer different positions.
