Titterzz quicky 17-01-2013: Recognizing the fact that lesbians have higher BMI’s, also in The Netherlands, Titterzz choked on the percentage of a healthy weight of African American lesbians: just 15%. I wanted to read more about it. Maybe you too…
Titterzz quicky 31-05-2012: of course homophobic violence differs worldwide. Still, there’s a huge problem, even in ‘tolerating countries’ like ours: Holland. Often, this homophobic violence is said to be rooted in deep insecurity about one’s own sexuality. This might just be true…
Titterzz quicky 11-03-2012: This study involves Muslims and homosexuality; practicing same-sex behaviour or feeling same-sex desire. Read on the abstract!
Titterzz quicky 15-06-2011: Homosexuality isn’t a choice. Furthermore, it has its biological functions. But hey, even if it hadn’t, and it would existed just for fun; would that have been a problem, or what? Enjoy!
Titterzz quicky 13-06-2011: How about sexual triggers which get less over a long-term relationship? Hmm, that’s a sad conclusion; but also the harsh truth! Now, the researchers suggest that we need to broaden our range of cues. I personally think there’s much more to ‘what the fuck happened to our mutual interest in each other?’. Perhaps there are many reasons why sexual desire disappears (look into our Titterzz advice).
Titterzz quicky 13-06-2011: Obviously I have to come off my mountain of plastic surgery. Results indicate women are very satisfied with the procedure. Different procedures have different backgrounds and it is not, as I mainly thought, a case of vanity.
Titterzz quicky 19-05-2011: Another oldy (2003), to remind us women we have to go a looooonnngggg way! Double standards as a mean to ‘control’ female sexuality. Wow. It has effects on how women are perceived who are active in the search for sexual experiences, that eventual rape is judged less serious, etc. In fact, women sacrifice their sexual autonomy due to these standards, one way or the other. You can read it online. Titterzz has selected some pieces of the article. In: Journal of Sex Research, ‘Sexual double standards: A review and methodological critique of two decades of research’, 2003, 40: 1, 13-26.
Titterzz quicky 19-05-2011: this is a nice exploring article about women looking for sexual attention of strippers (and getting it!!!). Yes, it’s slightly old (2008), but the idea about this whole phenomenon is very nice: how to incorporate customers that didn’t ‘belong’ there traditionally? And that’s just one of many questions. Much more in: Journal of Sex Research, Volume 45, Issue 3, 2008, Pages 201 – 216.
Titterzz quicky 14-05-2011: Titterzz knows this is a far more general scientific subject. Still, we are anxious to place it. Why? We think that being a woman asks for specific attention to your body, and the possession of your own body; in every way possible. Most of the time the female body doesn’t – completely – belong to herself. This is more easily observed in countries where young girls get circumcised, married off before they know their own sexuality and correctively raped because they’re lesbians. But Titterzz also wrote about the more subtle possessiveness of men on women in The Netherlands (see AW-NL). Furthermore, the common sub assertive position of women themselves has the assertive male on the other side.
Change has to start at a young, sexual, age. Especially with parents who have their own belief systems that don’t support female assertiveness. This article finds that boys already have higher rape-supportive beliefs than girls, but those beliefs can be decreased by sexual knowledge, independent of gender. Titterzz finds these results highly important. These conclusion should lead to more sexual education at school with the attentional focus on the subject of sexual violence. The complete article can be read in Journal of Sex Research, Volume 48, Issue 4, First published 2011, Pages 372 – 380.
Titterzz quicky 31-03-2011: This nice study explains the value of role models in the media. Findings suggest that more role models (less stereo typed) generate a more positive identity. The full-text of the study is available.
Titterzz quicky 28-03-2011: Special bred mice – without the neurotransmitter serotonin – are found to show more gay tendencies. This experiment doesn’t include female mice.
Titterzz quicky 26-1-2011: Results of this study show that (a.o.) daughters of lesbian moms try same-sex relations more often that daughters of heterosexual couples. Although I personally can’t believe the result that children of lesbian moms aren’t abused, this can be due to the relative small number of subjects. Still, a study with some nice results.
Titterzz quicky 26-1-2011: Are brains of lesbians different from heterosexual women? Do they look more like masculine brains? To test this hypothesis, a single performance measure was used: dichotic listening performance. So, this doesn’t account for all brain processes! Results show that lesbian brains do not differ significantly from female heterosexual ones, but look more like male heterosexual brains than their female counterparts.
Titterzz quicky 17-1-2011: I can only say – I need to read this whole article. Juliet annouces quite right that conceptual frameworks have to meet… People often speak different languages. What’s the impact on (female) sexuality? It’s huge. Remember the debate about female ejaculation? The female prostate? About sexual ‘dysfunction’? The focus on anatomic structures, and that’s even been done -literally- off target, loses the psycho-emotional and social facts of sexuality.
Titterzz quicky 14-1-2011: The development of sexual orientation, is the heterosexual way comparable with the lesbian way? Has it ever been a questionmark or just a simple fact? Well, 67% does question their sexuality! Read on, for more facts!
Titterzz quicky 14-1-2011: This nice study underlines the differences between men and women concerning sexual compulsivity. Specialized sexual behaviors are more common in sexual compulsive lesbians and bi’s than in less compulsive women.
Titterzz quicky 12-1-2011: suicide got all the attention now. And that’s highly needed! The Task Force to study suicide amongst LGBT-youth, has come up with recommendations. Point is, by looking at the recommendations, no much has been done with this specific population. The total PDF is available in the Journal of Homosexuality, 58:10–51, 2011, by Haas et al.
Titterzz quicky 12-1-2011: homosexuals may have small differences in brain structures compared to heterosexuals, love is the same!
Titterzz Quicky 30-12-2010: A new national survey carried out by market research firm Harris Interactive suggests gay and lesbian adults online today are among the most loyal and most frequent blog readers and social network users in the United States.
Titterzz quicky: This abstract touches the depth of big issues. What about your inner world if you are not accepted, while believing in the god who is supposed to condemn the true love you feel. Of course this question is not answered, certainly not in this abstract, but stil… It relates to the deep inner struggles of a human being.
Titterzz quicky: Really nice to know that many LG’s come out to their friend(s) (so did Titterzz). Then mom, then dad. Does this relate to felt pressure? Or closeness?
Titterzz quicky: lesbians and bisexuals are more likely overweight. What’s the rationale? Don’t they care as much? Or don’t they just not have to live up to male pressure? Or…?
After the reason for a female orgasm, sorry, Titterzz had to laugh about ‘to end coïtus’, other nice facts popped up. When does a female orgasm occur? What kind of objective signs do we have? Kinsey rapported it like: “the abrupt cessation of the previous sexual activity and the peace of the resulting state”. Masters[...]
Titterzz has been reading several articles about prenatal development; influences on homosexuality. Professor Swaab, who recently wrote a book on the human brain also mentioned influences like stress or medicines (DES) on the development of the brain and specifically sexual orientation. The abstract below refers to a specific desease congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH), which means that the[...]
These are the abstracts that Titterzz finds, as an idea in itself, marvellous. What do heterosexuals think about same-sex parenting? can they adjust their ideas? Well, read on. The study is published in: Culture, Health & Sexuality, Volume 13, Issue 1 January 2011 , pages 59 – 72. By: Jarred Pennington; Tess Knight In this study we explored[...]
Titterzz found a very nice piece about the female orgasm. It’s a big publication and we think it provides so much information that it would be convenient to divide it into separate parts. Differences between various definitions are dicussed as well as differences between females and males. Let’s take a look at four differences the[...]
As Titterzz thought, the last word isn’t spoken about the female prostate! This article below tries to end the discussion anyway… The researchers Alberto Rubio Casillas and Mtro. César Manuel Rodríguez Quintero, who wrote their opinions, based on years of research in the ‘International Society for Sexual Medicine’ (you can download their bulletins directly[...]
Titterzz found this interesting article in the ‘Gay and Lesbian Issues and Psychology Review’. The complete issue can be downloaded: here It concerns amongst others, the fine but essential line between fear and hate of LGBT-people. Hate is presented as a conscious choice, whereas fear is recognized as… just fear. And anybody may be anxious.[...]
Fascinating title, this one! Because it’s so true… You know, the funny thing is: the G-spot is still debated, as well as female ejaculation. Whereas numerous women know from personal experience that this might be a very very silly debate… Titterzz assumes, that this is a fundamental way in which the western world experiences and[...]
Titterzz is curious about specifics that are presented in this abstract. How many homosexuals have heterosexual encounters and vice versa? Who expierences sexual dysfunction? Questions like that are answered. Of course we would also like to know more about the why’s in these matters, but these ideas and facts may be presented in the full[...]
