Back to School

It's back to school season! Whether that means you're starting a new semester of university, or you finally get some time away from the kids, there's never been a better time to brush up on some basics! Here’s a study guide to help you get an A (or better yet, an O)!
 
Biology
 
Presumably you already know what parts fit where, but your partner isn't a DVD. There's a lot more to good sex than insertion!
 
 A surprising number of men and women aren't familiar with their own anatomy, much less that of the opposite sex. You would be shocked how many men and women think women pee out of their vaginas.
 
You would be less shocked by how many men think the urethra is a clitoris.
 
But even if you know where the clitoris is, many people are surprised that what you have access to on the outside is just the bundle of nerve endings on the tip of the proverbial iceberg. It actually extends 6-7 inches into the body! The fabled g-spot is believed to be the backdoor to the clitoris (and you can find it by curling your fingers forward and doing the “Come here” motion).
 
The prostate (sometimes referred to as the male g-spot) can be accessed the same way… just a little further round back.
 
Chemistry
 
While pretty much everyone is familiar with prescription pills like Viagra, there are much less drastic options available (although you should still ask your doctor), and not just for men!
 
The first stop for women with low libidos should typically be iron supplements. Iron deficiency is both common in women and a major mood killer. Getting to/maintaining a healthy level of iron will have a big effect on your sex drive (and most other basic functions).
 
Maca (a South American root vegetable) has also shown to be very helpful at increasing sex drive in women and is readily available as both a pill and a powder. Maca tastes great in smoothies with this other not so secret sex drive booster: chocolate!
 
For men, horny goat weed (an herb) and L-arginine (an amino acid) affect your body’s production of nitric oxide. Nitric oxide causes your blood vessels to dilate, which improves both blood flow and… all the things that benefit from improved blood flow. It also doesn’t hurt to take b complex vitamins, because b12 will give you an energy boost and niacin (b3) has been shown in studies to boost erections, particularly in men with high cholesterol.

Music
 
What you listen to has a bigger impact on your performance than you think! If you're looking to switch things up, turn off the Barry White (or Smash Mouth, no judgement here) and head over to iTunes.
 
Music has a unique ability to affect to affect your mood, and it can help you get into “character.” If you're not feeling particularly sexy or confident, listening to someone sing about feeling that way can really help.
 
Outside of lyrics, the overall feel of a song can change your demeanor. If you're looking to be a little more aggressive, something high intensity like metal or dancehall could be a good fit. If you're looking to up the passion, power ballads and r&b have always been safe bets. If you're looking to preemptively repent for the dirty things you're about to do, maybe try hymns.
 
Just remember to take rhythm into account. As much as everyone loves free form jazz, it's probably not ideal from a sex perspective. It's also worth considering the length. Giving yourself the goal of making it to the end of the song can help you last a little bit longer, but things could get a little awkward if you end 4 minutes into In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida.
 
Good luck on the test!
