About Me

I came to the U.S. at age of 12 with my mother. We settled in sunny Florida, which was quite a contrast to Minsk. I have always been fascinated by sex and relationships. Sex Secrets is where I share sex advice, experiences, news, and sometimes a little humor. If you have a question about sex that you prefer not to post in the comments, you can email me at svetlanaivano(at)yahoo.com.

Does Sex Before the Big Game Affect Your Performance?

Kate Hakala explores whether science supports the belief that abstaining from sex before the big game improves performance.

It’s a widely held belief in the world of athletics that you’re not supposed to put out before any big game or competition. People (a lot of men) seem to think that if they’re having sex before a huge performance, some essence or virility will escape from the tip of their penis and render them completely useless. This superstition extends far beyond the realm of sports: performers of all types have been preserving their juices, so to speak, for fear that their sexual spirit is somehow linked to talent and performance. Turns out, this is all bunk. Read more

12 Shocking New Sex Facts

.Unlike many lists of “shocking” sex facts, this list contains some interesting and useful information that you probably don’t know

William Masters and Virginia Johnson became famous for the groundbreaking sex research they conducted at Washington University in St. Louis in the 1950s and 1960s—so famous, in fact, that Showtime decided to turn their story into a new drama series, Masters of Sex. Masters and Johnson’s discoveries changed the way we think about sex and about women’s sexuality in particular. Their studies showed that women were capable of multiple orgasms, among other things. These were revolutionary ideas the time, but new research about women and sex has revealed some facts that would shock even Masters and Johnson. Here’s the latest on sex research from Dr. Eden Fromberg of SoHo OBGYN and Naomi Wolf’s most recent book, Vagina: A New Biography. Read more

The Real Reason Men Give Women Oral Sex

Can performing cunnilingus on your wife or girlfriend ward off infidelity?

According to a recently published study, one of the reasons men perform oral sex on female partners may be to minimize the risk of infidelity.

The study, published late last month in the Journal of Evolutionary Psychology, sought to discover why men perform oral sex on women, since the act does not lead directly to reproduction.

After surveying 243 adult men in heterosexual relationships, the researchers deduced that cunnilingus is used to discourage women from cheating, a theory the authors refer to as a “mate-retention strategy.” Read more
