The un­pre­dictable one

Glamour (South Africa) - - Sex -

If you have 16 min­utes, join the 20 mil­lion peo­ple who’ve watched TED talk ‘10 Things You Didn’t Know About Or­gasms’. Host Mary Roach wrote the bril­liantly ti­tled Bonk (Canon­gate Books; R225), and has more sex facts than a gen­eral knowl­edge game show con­tes­tant – in­clud­ing the long­est ever recorded male ejac­u­la­tion. It’s 2.4 min­utes: an eye­wa­ter­ing fig­ure, par­tic­u­larly if your eye in­ter­cepts it. Which can hap­pen – along with the walls, your hair, the top you wanted to wear to din­ner – even if the dis­tance is only a few cen­time­tres. It’s thought the dis­tance a man can ejac­u­late may be connected to his pelvic floor strength and abil­ity to sync his or­gasm with clench­ing mus­cles. So be pre­pared for se­men to catch you off guard. Though maybe don’t be too dra­matic. Duck­ing as if dodg­ing Thor’s ham­mer – when the flu­ids only just make it over one of his fin­gers – takes longer to laugh off than a quick dab with a tis­sue. Ahh, the glamour.
