Explore the chemistry, physics, and mathematics of love and lust during this lovely February edition of Science After Hours.

From Brooklyn’s premiere performance venue, House of Yes, comes ‘Geek Show!’ a motley crew of performers ready to blast you off to their kooky cosmos of games and play! With a twist of drag, a large pour of drama and a sprinkling of glitter, you’ll enjoy this team’s seriously silly take on science as they take over the museum’s Giant Heart exhibit.

Wassup Gina (Rhythm of the Night) brings her dark and dreamy DJ skills to an already steamy night in the museum by spinning in the one and only Fels Planetarium.

Happy Valentine’s Day! – Next Tuesday-February 19 -The Erotic Literary Salon Live, The Link Between Sleep and Having Sex

Rachel Fogletto Philadelphia’s well-known comedian, got her start at the Salon ranting and sharing her life. She’s back as featured presenter for an extended Valentine’s celebration. – Not to be missed – February 19, Tuesday.

MattressReviews.net sent me the following article to publish. This is not an endorsement of their site, but interesting research backed information. Although after visiting their site I wish I had read their reviews before purchasing my bed. Too late for me, but perhaps you are in the market for a new mattress.

The Link Between Sleep and Having Sex

There hasn’t been a ton of research done on the link between sleep and sex, but what research exists shows that there absolutely is a link.

Sleep disturbances have been linked to lack of sexual desire and sexual satisfaction over the years. In a world where approximately one-third of American adults don’t get enough sleep, this could be contributing to

Having Sex Before Bed Can Help Improve Sleep

Everyone has likely heard the story of men falling asleep immediately after sex because the sex was just that good. Well, there might be some truth to that story. Sex, specifically orgasms, help humans to relax and unwind with the help of a hormone called oxytocin, as well as increased estrogen or prolactin. All of those contribute to increased sleepiness and enhancing the REM cycle to allow partners to have deeper sleep for longer periods of time.

Sleeping Better Can Help Increase Sexual Desire… and orgasms!

When someone sleeps better, they’re going to be in a better mood, which means they’ll feel more up for having sex or masturbating. This is especially true for women, according to a 2015 pilot study from The Journal of Sexual Medicine.

The study found that women who slept for longer had increased genital arousal the next day than women who slept for shorter periods of time. In fact, a one-hour increase in sleep length increased the likelihood of having sex with a partner by 14 percent.

The study also hypothesized that sleep disorders could be considered as risk factors for sexual dysfunction in people of all genders, something that was looked at in menopausal women in 2017 by the North American Menopause Society.

This study found that women between the ages of 50 and 79 who slept for less than seven hours a night were less likely to reach orgasm during sex, which could lead them back to the issues with sleeping.

How To Work On Getting a Great Night’s Sleep

Building good sleep hygiene habits, as well as updating what you are sleeping on, can help to alleviate sleep issues as well as increase sexual desire. For example, if a couple has just moved in together, they have likely combined their mattress and pillows. This might make the most fiscal sense, but it might not be the best fit for both partners physically. One partner might need a mattress that is either softer or more firm for their own comforts. They might also need a different collection of pillows to sleep comfortably next to another person. A mismatch for them might cause a rift in the partnership because of a mismatch in sexual desire – simply because one of them isn’t sleeping well.

Other ways to improve sleep hygiene include avoiding caffeine in the afternoons, avoiding alcohol in the evenings, and making sure to spend some time winding down away from any electronics before bed. If someone were to find that they were regularly struggling to fall asleep, talking to a doctor may help them find the solutions for their specific problems.

Up until now, it looked like women would be missing out on the exciting opportunity to make love to the cold, lifeless bodies of machines.

But don’t despair, ladies – RealDoll (maker of those alarming plastic sexbots for men) is making one for women too.

And he’s quite a hunk (as well as coming with a bionic penis which never, ever tires), the makers promise.

Just look at those lifeless blue eyes – mmmm!

Matt McMullen of RealDoll said that the company’s currently tweaking the sexbot’s voice and personality – and says that users will be able to choose any penis size that suits them.

‘We’re working on a male version of the robot AI,’ McMullen told the Daily Star. ‘We’ll eventually have a male and a female platform available.’

David Levy, author of Love and Sex With Robots, says, ‘I’m sure women will find robots equally appealing as men.

‘If women are that interested in getting satisfaction from a vibrator, imagine how the same women will feel having a robot they can put their arms round them and having the robot squeeze them.’
