Regardless of your ethnicity, cultural background, socio-economic status or religion, there’s one thing that everyone agrees on. Man was put on this earth to make fun of people who are different. Sorry, that’s what everyone on the internet believes.

Anyway, we all agree that humans are meant to procreate. And except in unique circumstances, procreating requires men and women to have sex. However, the specifics of sex… well, that’s been the cause for much hand wringing, consternation, argument and I believe the cause of World War I. But, I digress.

Because talking about sex is so often frowned upon, myths, mysteries, 1/2 truths and lies continue to infect popular discourse. Here now, we reveal facts.

EXPERIMENT #1: Look at the photo above. It’s the same woman in three different colored outfits. Pick the photo you think is the sexiest. After you make your choice, compare your decision to the majority by revealing the result below.

[reveal heading=”%image% Click here to reveal”]Most people choose the red outfit. According to the latest scientific research, the color red makes people think more about sex. Think about Valentine’s Day and a “Red Light District.” It’s not a coincidence. You can find the research, here. You owe us one, cause now you’re a little less stupid. [/reveal]

EXPERIMENT #2: Below, there are 14 photos. Look at each one and then decide which picture featured the most attractive woman. After you make a choice, compare your decision to the majority by revealing the result below.

Most people choose picture #12. That’s Alyssa Campenella, Miss USA 2011.

Science has long established the basis for the perception of beauty in human faces.  And it’s universal. Everyone thinks Megan Fox is gorgeous… and Danny DeVito? Well, at least he’s got Rhea Perlman. For now.

You see, the perception of beauty — it turns out — comes down to facial symmetry. And some people have it more than others.
Below, the criteria science uses to determine facial symmetry:

  • Vertical dimension – The distance between the pupils and mouth in relation to the distance of the hairline to the chin.
  • Horizontal dimension – The distance between the pupils in relation to the width of the face.

Guess who owes us again? You. And, you’re welcome.

Demotivational-Posters-Funny-For-5MYTH DEBUNKED:  There is a notion quite prevalent in popular culture that women with big breasts aren’t as bright as women with small breasts. Where did this myth come from? Why does it persist? The reasons are myriad, wide and explained better elsewhere. HOWEVER, here is the facts: there is NO truth to this myth in any way shape or form.

Intelligence is determined by some mysterious combination of biology, nature, early nutrition, how you’re nurtured, your birth order, environment, along with effort, perseverance, and determination. None of which either directly or indirectly correlate to the female body’s biological function of reaching puberty and growing breast tissue.

Remember what we said earlier? Yeah. That.

EXPERIMENT #3: If you’re a woman reading this, look at the photos above and make two decisions. The first, which of the men would you like to have sex with right this minute. And second, which one would you be more inclined to marry? And you only have their looks as a guide.

For the men, look at the photos and decide which guy you think that women will find the sexiest.

After you make your decision (s), click and reveal some startling information.

[reveal heading=”%image% Click here to reveal”]

Because the consequence of a one night stand is much higher for a woman, meaning she could get pregnant, her brain is subconsciously pointing her, if she decides to have a one night stand, to a guy who is exceedingly masculine looking: chiseled jaw, strong facial structure, tall, broad shoulders, because he will have good DNA/genes that will be passed on to her child. So, many of the women reading this likely chose guy #4 as the guy they want to have sex with Right. This. Second. If you did not, congratulations for being independent and not easily quantifiable.

When it comes to picking a mate for marriage, women, generally, will adopt a different set of criteria for a partner, looking this time for someone who is stable, has the potential to be a good provider, and likely won’t stray from his commitment. So, in this scenario, suddenly #2 and #3 look promising, as do #s 5 and 7.

So, to the men reading, the guy the women will find sexiest in-general, depends where they are in terms of their lives. If they’re ready to settle down, their criteria is one thing, and if they’re just looking for a good time, their criteria is likely something else.

See above for your new IQ.

MYTH: IT’S POSSIBLE TO POKE A BABY IN THE HEAD DURING SEX 

Men and women alike often wonder if its possible for the man to poke the baby in the head with the tip of his penis while he’s having sex with his pregnant partner or wife. Before I tell you if it’s possible, first a brief anatomy lesson.

Screen Shot 2013-07-18 at 5.31.16 PM

The growing baby is floating inside a sac of amniotic fluid which is floating inside the amniotic sac inside the uterus. The uterus is protected by the cervix, a rigid barrier to the vagina which slowly opens over the course of the pregnancy. The birth canal is 3 to 7 inches in length, depending on the woman’s state of arousal.

Screen Shot 2013-07-19 at 11.34.33 AM

The ultra sound picture above is of an actual penis inside a woman who is 6 months pregnant. The white colored area above the penis is the cervix. Beyond that is the uterus, amniotic sac and baby. As you can see, the direction of the penis is down. During sex, the penis fits in a space underneath the cervix and uterus.

So, what’s the answer? Can you poke the baby in the head during sex with the tip of the penis? No. It’s not possible, because the baby is protected behind the rigid cervix, uterus, and amniotic fluid.

HOWEVER…

It is possible to “jostle” the baby.

Wait. What?

Yup. It’s possible for a man, regardless of his penis’ length, to gently jostle the baby.

ultrasound_640x480AND YET…. It’s no more of a jostle than the baby would experience if the pregnant woman were to run up a set of stairs or to exercise or do yoga. As you can see from the above photo, it’s quite possible for the shaft of the penis to “brush up against” the cervix, which could, in turn, “jostle” the contents of the amniotic sac… and thus, “jostle” the growing baby.

We don’t want to brag, but thanks to this post, you’re a lot less stupid when it comes to sex. You’re welcome.

Soundstage with 100 people and 757 fuselage.

In Episode #1 of This vs That we reveal: the fastest way to board 100 passengers onto a 757. We’re joined by astro-physicist, Dr. Jason Steffon from Fermi Lab, who puts his theoretical “Optimum Boarding Method” up against seven of the airline industries standard boarding procedures. Be on the look out for a hilarious improved song by co-host Brad Sherwood and a guy who makes a ham sandwich with his feet.
