Why Booty’s On His Brain
Ever notice how one minute your guy’s watching the ball game, then the next he’s pawing you? It’s probably because men experience many bursts in their testosterone levels (the hormone linked to libido) throughout the day, explains Katherine Wynne-Edwards, PhD, a biologist at Queens University in Canada.

Warming Lube Can Amp Arousal
New warming liquids really kick nooky up a notch. “They heat skin upon contact, which can enhance intimacy and heighten sexual arousal,” says Yvonne K. Fulbright, an instructor of human sexuality at NYU and author of The Hot Guide to Safer Sex. To give him a tingly sensation, rub a few drops of warming oil onto his testicles and then work back to his perineum (the area between his testicles and tush).

Your Man’s Ring Finger Reveals All
Will he be a tiger in bed? A study published in the journal Human Reproduction found that if a guy’s ring finger is longer than his index finger, he has a lot of testosterone coursing through his body.

His Tootsies Have A Secret Turn-on Zone
Keep this in mind next time you give your man a foot massage: “The insides of a man’s ankles are sensitive because they’re neurologically connected to his sex organs, so rubbing them will intensify his pleasure,” says Larry Costa, author of Massage: Mind and Body. Prime him for passion by dabbing a little massage oil on your fingers and using the pads of your thumbs to make tiny circular movements on his ankles. Sensually work your way up to his thighs…then head for his package.

Your Scent Slays Him
When you’re ovulating, typically on day 14 of your cycle, you exude strong pheromones that cause men to be subconsciously attracted to you, says Hilda Hutcherson, MD, assistant clinical professor at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons.

Fooling Around Gets You High
Feel like you’re addicted to sex? Dutch scientists scanned people’s brains during intercourse and found that orgasms activate the same regions as a dose of heroin.

These Foods Will Fire Him Up
To make your man rock hard, try feeding him pumpkin seeds and peanuts. They contain L-arginine, an amino acid that can increase blood flow to the penis, says Mehmet Oz, MD, professor of surgery at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons.

Oral Action Has A Surprising Side Effect
A study published in the Journal of Reproductive Immunology found that women who performed oral sex and swallowed on a regular basis had fewer problems during pregnancy. Researchers believe a woman’s bod sometimes attacks male genes, but oral sex acclimates her to them via repeated exposure.

He’s Shockingly Potent
The documentary The Science of the Sexes noted that one ejaculation contains enough sperm to impregnate all the women in the USA—twice!
