Reading news stories and blogs about sex always teaches something new. The top lessons this week: eat grilled cheese sandwiches and do naked yoga. If you want to learn more, you'll have to check out some of the top sexy stories from the past week.

Men Over 50 Starting Over

I’ve been reading and Kinkly has been publishing quite a few articles over the past couple of years about women over 50 enjoying or recently discovering their sexuality. Most of them say it’s better than ever despite how the media portrays menopause as being the killer of sex drives. So, if women over 50 are having great or better sex, what about the men? What do we know except for all those boner pill commercials and advertisements? It’s so hard to know -there are very few older men who write and talk openly about sex and their sex lives.
Apparently, Guy, a 51-year-old widower, says sex is pretty darn good after recently finding the new woman of his dreams. He shares his story on Erica Jagger’s blog, A Sexy Woman of a Certain Age. I also had the privilege of a 56-year-old guy friend who shared his sexmate-turned-soulmate story on my blog, too. Both stories will make you do a fist pump and yell, "Go you!" no matter how old or young you are.

Make Me a Grilled Cheese Sammich

How often do you have sex? It just might depend on how many grilled cheese sandwiches you eat. According to an article in the LA Times Daily Dish column, 73% of grilled cheese lovers have sex at least once a month compared with 63% of those who don't love grilled cheese. And 32% of grilled cheese lovers have sex at least six times a month, compared with 27% of non-grilled cheese lovers. For those of you who have a partner who asks you to make them a sandwich after sex, you might want to stock up on American cheese. It was ranked as the favorite cheese among sexy grilled cheese lovers.

A Naked Workout for Better Sex

Lately, I’ve been thinking about taking up yoga to de-stress and tune up my body. And yes, the thought of toning up my body for sexual stamina and endurance has crossed my mind a couple of times. OK, maybe a couple of hundred times. My "thinking about" has now been pushed into "Let’s do this!" after reading Zen Holmes' article, 7 Freakin’ Good Reasons You Should Do NAKED Yoga! Not a bad idea after all those grilled cheese sandwiches you've been eating ...

Retail Sex Therapy

In a sex slump? You might want to try retail therapy instead of sex therapy. Glamour magazine’s Sex and Dating blog says that researchers at the University of Michigan found that shopping has a similar effect on the brain as sex. Using a brain scan, scientists found that scoring an item at the mall activated the regions in the brain that are controlled by dopamine, the same areas that light up during and after sex. The more the shopper liked or wanted the item, the more the pleasure centers in the brain lit up. If the item was on sale, the brain scan lit up like the Las Vegas strip. Sounds like safer sex ... only more expensive.

A Better Condom for Better Sex

Putting on a latex raincoat before penetrative sex might not be the inconvenience you think it is. Scientists at an Australian university have designed a condom they claim will feel better than going in au naturel. It’s made of hydrogel, a material that has the ability to lubricate itself, conduct electricity, is biodegradable, and supposedly feels better than having unprotected sex. Assuming that it also protects against pregnancy and STIs, I think we have a winner!

The Magic Wand Gets Unplugged

Normally, I don’t write about sex toys for Sex Stories We Love, but the news leaking out about the new cordless Magic Wand is as legendary as the world’s most popular vibrator itself. Joan Price has written the first review I’ve seen about it. She calls is "the new king in town." Among the USB rechargeable upgrade, other new features include a silicone head and four speeds - the highest one is slightly stronger than the Original. This is a great update to an old classic.

Sing for Your Hand Job

There’s the tired old phrase about singing for your supper, but how about singing for your hand job? Don’t know if realityTV in Japan has hit a new high or low (note, that is) with a new adult channel show that The Lad Bible calls a cross between the "X Factor" and PornHub. Contestants are rated on a 0-100 scale for their singing talents while getting stroked by provocatively clad women in front of a camera and thousands of people watching. Talk about performance anxiety! Winners get a bunch of lubes and sex toys to use when they’re not on camera.
