Queen Anne’s Dead

The New Yorker once ran a piece entitled “Why Women Have Sex”, by two University of Texas scientists. They said that the search for “pink Viagra” was leading to much research into female response (it’s something we want to know only if there’s money in it, clearly), and the female orgasm was found to be […]

The Fallacy Of Man The Toolmaker

When people think of Darwin, they usually remember only his first book, The Origin of Species, which was about natural selection, or differential survival. His second book, The Descent of Man, added the concept of sexual selection, or differential reproduction; Darwin thought that the evolution of the human species had a lot less than in […]

Towards A Don-Juanology

Like most other things, seduction skills ought to follow a “standard distribution”, with most people in the middle, smaller numbers to the one or other side, and a very few really extreme cases. It is the latter, however, that can teach us the most. Casanova was, for example, said to be able to get any […]

Measuring Mendacity

Hearing the thoughts of others is a common SF trope. Robert Silverberg handled it elegaically, Mel Gibson made it a romantic comedy. In both cases there was a lot more that could have been done with the premise of overhearing what women really think, as opposed to what they say. The urban myth that men […]

The Skintern Experiments

It is said that so many of the new female interns beginning work in Washington D.C. wear such revealing clothes that they are popularly termed “skinterns”. No doubt they would be very insulted to hear this, and claim that they were only wearing skimpy outfits because it was very hot and sticky. Which summer in […]

The Bellboy Experiments

What women say in questionnaires about their fidelity does not at all accord with what is said about them by the bellboys of upmarket hotels, who are in a position to know what they really get up to when no one they know is watching. Luxury hotels would therefore be another suitable venue for I-USE […]

Did You Hear About……

Another suitable project for the Institute of Unethical Sexual Experiments would be on how women respond when told that the man in whom they are interested is a mega-stud who is busy servicing half the city: are they repelled or fascinated? Biology might suggest either: such a man is unlikely to become a stable husband […]

I-USE At The Swinger Club

Some people, both men and women, claim that human sexuality is at its best in the orgy; you do everything you’ve ever wanted, all at once; fuck until you drop; you come away (they say) feeling more profoundly relaxed and at peace than you ever did after just one partner; and then you don’t need […]
