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.

Sex In The Middle Ages: 10 Titillating Facts You Wanted To Know But Were Afraid to Ask

The point of articles like this, of course, is to make ourselves feel superior by laughing at how ignorant or weird our ancestors were. Nevertheless, they can still be interesting from a historical standpoint. Some men may wish that fact number five was still in fashion.

And in the early part of the Middle Ages, priests were actually allowed to marry and have children. Read more

Do Overweight Women Skip Sex? Fat Chance!

Oregon and Hawaiian researchers have found that a woman’s weight does not seem to affect sexual behavior. In fact, overweight women are more likely to report having sex with men than women considered to be of “normal weight.”

Overweight and obese women have more sex than skinny types, a new study suggests.

The research, announced today, is based on data on more than 7,000 women collected in the 2002 National Survey of Family Growth. The new analysis looked at the relationship between body mass index and sexual orientation, age of first intercourse, number of partners and frequency of intercourse.

The results seem to contradict stereotypes that overweight and obese women have less sex. If anything, the researchers said, the opposite seems to be true. Read more

It’s great to know that fat women are getting so much action, but it made me wonder. We’ve all heard the saying, “Practice makes perfect.” Does this mean that overweight women also are better at sex than women of normal weight because they get more practice?
