5The sad truth

While this sex fact is neither entertaining nor humorous, it's shocking to note that homosexuality remained on the American Psychiatric Association's list of mental illnesses until 1973.

6Protect our troops

Today the government issues "Support our Troops" paraphernalia; however government-issued brochures and videos featured a slightly different slogan during the WWII era – "Don't forget – Put it on before you put it in." During World War II, many soldiers returned home with venereal diseases, costing the government millions of dollars in medical expenses.

7Work it

Hate the gym? You burn about 200 calories during 30 minutes of active sex.

8What a tease!

Burlesque costumes are the epitome of sexy – think Dita Von Teese and lingerie; however, a few centuries ago, the outfits had a slightly different purpose. According to the Museum of Sex, merkins (the bottom half of burlesque costumes) were originally created as "pubic wigs" for 15th century prostitutes. The designs helped hide pubic lice and syphilis symptoms. Make sure to share this information with your boyfriend the next time he heads to Vegas with the boys.

9Justice is served

In Hong Kong, adulterous husbands get more than a steep monthly alimony payment – a betrayed wife is legally allowed to kill her husband if he cheats on her – but she may only do so with her bare hands.

10What ever happened to Southern comfort?

The sale of sex toys and vibrators is banned in Alabama and Mississippi.

It seems fun. I'm 34 and still virgin :( That's a problem when you live in a conservative family...

I am divorced man with 2 precious daughters. My ex chose to end our 17 year marriage with a 3 month affair with a co-worker. Since being divorced I have had a tremendous amount of married women and women in a relationship asking me out or just wanting to "party" for a weekend. It sounds fun but is a big turn off knowing they choose not to be truthful to their significant other. Maybe not as much as men but women are almost their for adultery!

I live in MS(Mississippi) & me and my girlfriend have no problem buying ANY kind of toy in fact you can get a vibrator in a Spencers or Hot Topic out here so lol 10 is not a fact.

Fact # ten is incorrect. I live in Alabama and there is no ban on toys. There are toy shops all over the state.

Immy June 19, 2012 | 10:37 PM

Ishy comeon...., drinking semen? U'll puk... Maybe you talk of using it as toothpaste but still... Urrrrh!

Ruby June 12, 2012 | 9:20 PM

I had no idea most of these facts! Maybe we should make that same law as Hong Kong so men here would stop being unfaithful. What would the punishment be for women who cheat too?! I can't believe that shops are illegal in some states. Can't you just order things online still?! I'm not particularly a fan of them, but some women really do! So funny about their invention though, there was just an indie movie about that, right?!

Hitting the gym is important to have a healthy life. You can't enjoy different positions if you are not agile enough.

Vibrators and other toys are growing in popularity. Women are being more open about their use. Thanks for the great facts!

Jennifer Bonham January 27, 2010 | 8:19 AM

Actually, number 10 isn't a lie. It became illegal just recently and they're still working on shutting the stores down. I do Slumber Parties and our distributors have been fighting this issue for the last few years. We label everything as "novelty use only" just for this reason, but in some towns, they still make things very rough for us! We've squeeked by because we conduct our shows in the privacy of our hostesses' home.

ishy October 29, 2009 | 2:25 AM

This is really fun Jennifer! And I wonder,for the 2. Say cheese!, can you use it as a toothpaste or you have to drink it?!? LOL... Do you have other write ups like this Jen? I'll look forward for more - wait for your reply! - Thanks!!!

I had never heard #6 before - wow! That's crazy.

ashley June 30, 2008 | 1:23 AM

ladies we all know that if they made that a legal law in the united states we would have a dramatic decrease in our population due to the fact that in the united states there are so many unfaithfull men. all though a decrease wouldnt be such a bad thing.
