Best sex position revealed – Doctors use ultrasound scanner to definitively answer raunchy question 0 41

A NEW study has revealed the best sex position for women by using an ultrasound scanner on a test couple.

Researchers measured blood flow and found that a tried and true method, with the assistance of a pillow, is the best way for women to achieve orgasm.

Researchers from private genecology clinic New H Medical in New York discovered that the best way to get blood flow to the clitoris is to have face-to-face relations with the male on top, despite widespread rumors that the missionary position is boring.

Using the ultrasound to measure blood flow, researchers analyzed a test couple while they got it on in five positions.

For 10 minutes each, the couple linked up face-to-face with the female above (Cowgirl), face-to-face while seated (Lotus), face-to-face with male above – with and without a pillow – and kneeling with female bent over.

The scans showed that face-to-face positions generally enhanced clitoral blood flow.

Dr Kimberley Lovie led the team of researchers with the goal of producing “scientific research that evaluates the association between different coital positions and their ability to produce female orgasm,” the Daily Mail exclusively shared.

“The kneeling/rear entry position produces the least amount of direct clitoral contact, and resulted in a negligible increase in blood flow compared to the face-to-face positions,” researchers wrote.

They found that the pillow in missionary allowed for deeper penetration and a more effective orgasm.

Known as sex pillows or positioning pillows, they are usually firm and wedge shaped.

Researchers said the pillows provide more precise and consistent pelvic angulation than the average pillow you sleep on.

They added that using one of the specialized pillows increases the amount of contact and pressure on the clitoris along with the depth of penetration.

It should be noted that women may have different responsiveness to stimulation in varied positions as men exert different degrees of thrusting forces, researchers said.

The scientists hope that the research will help clinicians and their patients in efforts to address sexual dysfunction.

My bitter ex told lies to my friends about my ‘small manhood’ after I dumped her 0 47

DEAR DEIDRE: MY ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger.

She never complained when we were together, but last week she told the girls in our group that being with me was “like kissing a soggy lettuce leaf” and that she “literally didn’t feel a thing when we were having sex” because I’m so small.

My ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger

I’m 25 and she’s 24. I think part of it is jealousy.

She knows a couple of the other girls fancy me and I think she’s trying to sabotage any chance I have with them.

Not that I’m even planning anything.

She’s so insecure and has a vicious tongue on her.

I’m tempted to let each of her so-called friends know what she really says about them in private.

Even her best friend gets a nasty critique every time she posts anything on Instagram.

Her top is either too short, or her hair looks like wire, or her laugh is fake . . . it goes on and on.

I don’t regret splitting up with her but this last trick has really infuriated me.

You could maybe reply with: “Let’s just say she never complained when we were together and nor have any of my other exes.”

Your friends will soon see her behaviour for what it is – jealous insecurity.

My partner said he was on a work trip – but he was actually getting married and on his honeymoon 0 30

DEAR DEIDRE: MY partner said he was on a work trip two months ago, but he had actually got married and been on honeymoon.

Our relationship had become a bit predictable, but we still had regular sex and nice days out with our two young sons.

My partner lied about his work trip – he was really on his HONEYMOON

I’m 32 and he’s 37. Our sons are four and two.

When he returned from his “work trip” he blamed me for his cheating, saying I had let myself go and didn’t pay him enough attention.

He then told me he’d “traded up” for a better model. It didn’t stop there.

He said that his wife, who is 27, is absolutely stunning and makes him feel special.

Apparently this woman was a barmaid he’d met on a golf trip and they had been seeing each other for six months.

He told me all this, then marched upstairs and packed his games console and his clothes and drove off out of my life.

The thing is, we always talked about getting married but when we had kids there always seemed something better to spend our money on.

Mutual friends have told me he has moved into a new-build home on the other side of our small town and his wife has plenty of family money.

My sons are really missing him and I don’t even know how I feel.

Sometimes when he comes to visit the boys I beg him to come home.

But other times I’m so angry with him, I refuse to let him in.

Now he is accusing me of stopping him from seeing his children.

Surely he can’t just show up when he likes?

I’m a mess and need to start getting a grip for the kids’ sake.

DEAR DEIDRE

I caught my husband snogging my sister – how am I meant to trust him again?

DEIDRE SAYS: I’m so sorry your partner ended your relationship in such a cruel way.

This man sounds selfish and immature, and quite frankly the way he has treated you is emotionally abusive.

It won’t feel like it now, but you really are better off without him.

He is behaving like he still lives in your home, by just turning up unannounced.

Tell him firmly that you would encourage a good relationship between him and your sons but he can only collect them with prior arrangement.

Start to put down your boundaries.

I’m sending you my support pack When Parents Fall Out, which you could pass to him to help explain why you need to co-operate for the future wellbeing of your children.
