1. Ru­mour has it that smelling mush­rooms can cause spon­ta­neous or­gasms in women!

2. Milk pro­tein, used in the man­u­fac­tur­ing of con­doms, means they’re un­suit­able for (use by) most ve­g­ans!

3. An or­gasm can clear your si­nuses! Why? The rush of adren­a­line from your or­gasm causes tis­sues in the nose to shrink, clear­ing up si­nus pas­sages.

4. Bono­bos, one of our most closely re­lated pri­mates, are rarely found in zoos. Why? Be­cause they’re con­stantly hav­ing sex (re­gard­less of their age or sex!)

5. Sperm is highly ef­fec­tive in treat­ing

(ie. mois­tur­is­ing) wrin­kles! Anti-wrin­kle in­gre­di­ents use prod­ucts sim­i­lar to sperm be­cause it works so well.

6. From the 16th cen­tury through the 20th cen­tury, anal sex was pun­ish­able by death in parts of the UK.


A Swedish court has given Jean-Claude Ar­nault, the man at the cen­tre of the scan­dal that led to the can­cel­la­tion of this year’s No­bel Prize in Lit­er­a­ture, a two-year prison term for rap­ing a woman in 2011.

Ar­nault’s lawyer, Bjorn Hur­tig, told Swedish news me­dia that his client would ap­peal the ver­dict. Mr. Ar­nault had de­nied the al­le­ga­tions. The scan­dal has se­verely dam­aged the rep­u­ta­tion of the Swedish Academy, which awards the No­bel

Prize in Lit­er­a­ture, set­ting off a se­ries of re­crim­i­na­tions and power strug­gles.

In No­vem­ber 2017, the Swedish daily Da­gens Ny­heter re­ported that 18 women had ac­cused Mr. Ar­nault of sex­ual as­sault or ha­rass­ment. Many of the al­leged in­ci­dents took place at the Fo­rum (which is owned by Ar­nault and his spouse) or Academy-owned prop­er­ties in Stock­holm and Paris. The ac­cu­sa­tions cov­ered a span of 20 years; in many cases, too much time had passed for crim­i­nal charges un­der Swedish law.

Ar­nault could have re­ceived a sen­tence of up to six years. How­ever, the pros­e­cu­tor, Christina Voigt, said in a tele­phone in­ter­view that two years “is a rea­son­able penalty”. The court awarded un­spec­i­fied dam­ages to the vic­tim.

Elis­a­beth Massi Fritz, lawyer for the vic­tim, called the ver­dict “a big re­lief for my client” and “a vic­tory for jus­tice.” She said it should un­der­mine “the cul­ture of si­lence that sur­rounds rapes and sex crimes.”

The ver­dict was an­nounced as the 2018 No­bel sea­son opened. It is the first with­out a lit­er­a­ture prize in nearly 70 years. Ir­ish No­bel prize win­ners in­clude Ge­orge Bernard Shaw, Wil­liam But­ler Years, Sa­muel Beck­ett and Sea­mus Heaney.

Spunk's not dead: sperm is a good mois­turiser. (In­set) Smelling mush­rooms can re­port­edly be or­gas­mic.
