Strange Facts Behind Facebook, Orgasms,
the One-Percent and Selfies

  • Research that will surprise no one: A recent study by PLOS One found women tend to be friendlier than men on Facebook, making more references to social relationships and emotions than their male counterparts, who were more likely to mention sports and occupations. Also… The guys swear more.
  • What kind of “O” do you have? A new review by Concordia and McGill University researchers reveals women have enormous (and differing) potential to have orgasms from a variety of “sites” on their bodies—the clitoris, the G-spot, the cervix as well as non-genital areas—and that the orgasmic experience evolves throughout the life span. The review also drives home the point that sexual gratification does not begin and end with an erect penis.
  • It is a common misperception that America’s one-percenters are a small cluster of uber-wealthy people who regularly land on the Forbes lists. In fact, the one-percent is made up of 1.6 million households with varying levels of wealth, and most make their money from small- to medium-sized businesses, many of which are family run.
  • UC Irvine researchers say regularly snapping selfies and sharing with friends can make you a happier person.
