• Why Wearing Socks During Sex Isn't a Crime Against Passion

    Why Wearing Socks During Sex Isn't a Crime Against PassionMost people consider keeping your socks on during sex to be the ultimate passion-killer, but a study from a Dutch university begs to differ.

    While aiming to find out what happens in the brain during orgasm, researchers at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands inadvertently discovered that keeping the tootsies toasty had a positive impact on the subjects' ability to reach climax.

    When the couples were given socks to wear, about 80% of the couples were able to achieve orgasm compared with 50% previously.

    Anything that boosts orgasm potential gets our vote - but keep it sexy though, with a pair of stockings instead.

      I'm the same...

      I hate wearing socks in bed and only wear them when I am freezing. I find it more intense without wearing any socks and even stockings. It detracts from the sensations for me and I get too hot.

      I must be an oddball too.
