Most successful 18th century whore
:
Kitty Fisher, "One of the most beautiful and talented demi-mondaines of the eighteenth century", moved in such wealthy circles that she could command the extraordinary sum of 100 guineas a night. The Duke of York, after spending a night with Kitty, gave her a mere fifty-pound note, since it was all he had with him. She promptly dismissed him and refused to receive him again. To further show her contempt, she sent the banknote to a pastry chef with instructions that it be baked into a tart and served up for breakfast. She is also credited as being our first celebrity, and makes Katie Price look like a nun. A courtesan, gentlemen's whore-pet and all round publicity seeker, she managed to get a whole books written about the time she fell off her horse whilst riding in St. James's Park, London, in March 1759 where it was discovered as she lay on the ground, that she wore not a stitch under her dress. In the days when a glance at an ankle was enough to produce an erection, this would have been enough to cause passers-by to be spellbound and dumbstruck. She is immortalized in the old English nursery rhyme, 'Lucy Locket'.


Most bizarre human prostitutes:

Every imaginable type of human being has been required for purposes of prostitution. In Italy a ring of grand-mother prostitutes was uncovered by the police. Amputees have also been immensely popular. Not so long ago a woman with one leg was operating in the San Francisco area: "she claimed to have more business than she could handle." Hunchbacks and women with one or both breasts amputated have also been immensely popular. Similarly some men apparently desire a woman with a club foot or females with hideous scars. And hermaphrodite or trans-sexual prostitutes have also been much in demand.

Most successful 19th century whore:

Laura Bell, an ex-Belfast shop girl whose apogee
occurred in the mid-nineteenth century, and was described by Sir William Hardman as, "The Queen of London Whoredom", was an immensely successful prostitute. When she visited the Opera in 1852 the whole house rose to watch her departure! In 1856 she married Captain Augustus Thistlethwaytes, a nephew of the then Bishop of Norwich. They lived for a time in Grosvenor Square in what may be considered a somewhat eccentric fashion. The Captain, for instance, summoned servants by firing a pistol through the bedroom ceiling. Laura had brought to the marriage a dowry of £250,000, earned from a Nepalese prince. Later she "got religion" and "she was, by all accounts, as successful a preacher as she had been a whore- no mean achievement." Cora Pearl, another nineteenth-century prostitute managed to accumulate a few hundred thousand pounds.

In 1817, there were more than 360 brothels in just 3 parishes in the city of London, containing over 2,000 prostitutes. Coleridge, Shelley and Keats enjoyed their services. “These are thy pleasures, O London,” wrote Charles Lamb, “O city abounding with whores!” William Hazlitt’s playfulness (essayist, painter, journalist and philanderer) got him into trouble when he kissed a girl in a Keswick tavern in 1803. She slapped him across the face, shouting: “You’re a black-faced rascal, sir!” Without missing a beat he picked her up, turned her over his knee, pulled up her petticoats and spanked her soundly on her buttocks.


Masturbation: Most dangerous techniques
:

Men and women will go to great lengths to give themselves sexual satisfaction. Sometimes the results are not what was hoped for. One book mentions the case of a man who tried to masturbate by putting his penis into the sucking end of a vacuum-cleaner. The result was that all the skin was sucked off the penis. This method of masturbation "is not therefore recommended." P. Mantegazza has instanced the case of a penis caught in a bayonet tube and in the bath tub faucet. Many similar such cases are known to doctors and diligent researchers.


Masturbation: Highest frequency.
From The Illustrated Book of Sexual Records.
According to Alfred Kinsey, maximum masturbation rates were to be found in children under the age of fifteen. For this age group the maximum frequency of masturbation was in excess of twenty-three times a week. Some females surveyed had experienced orgasm from this source as many as thirty or more times in a week. Some energetic females had masturbated to orgasm as many as one hundered times in a single hour! But some women only tried it once a month. Kinsey concluded that "the range of variation in almost every type of sexual activity seems to be far greater among females."


In the United States:
Because of a legal system where individual states, countries, and even towns can pass their own laws, the United States has acquired more than its fair share of weird legal pronouncements. The following is a short selection of the stranger sex-related laws; reading them, one can only assume that most were passed hurriedly, in response to local scandals.

Red-sided Garter snakes are small and poisonous, and live in Canada and the North-western United States. Their highly unusual mating practice takes place during an enormous orgy with as many as twenty-five thousand snakes slithering together in a large den. In that pile, one female may have as many as 100 males copulating with her. These `nesting balls' grow as large as two feet high, though sometimes the female is crushed under the heavy mound.


Minute quantities of over 30 different substances have been identified in human semen. These include nitrogen, fructose, lactic acid, ascorbic acid (vitamin C), inositol, cholesterol, glutathione, creatine, pyruvic acid, citric acid, sorbitol, urea, uric acid and Vitamin B12, along with various salts and enzymes, vitamins, minerals, trace elements and amino acids. Curiously, I have noticed that those girls who swallow the most amount of cum during a party, finish with more energy. It could be considered that each load is the equivalent of a vitamin pill, and may go some way to explaining why women live longer than men? As it is the life force or qi/ch'i (pronounced 'chee'), the Chinese speak of.

The medical term for 'Blue Balls' is epididymitis, an inflammation of the epididymis, which is where sperm mature in the scrotal sac. 'Blue balls' occur when the epididymis gets blocked up with sperm that have left the testis but not the penis. You can free the sperm and ease the pain by ejaculating.

Sex "experts" have long debated the existence of the female "G-spot". Some think it may be the female prostate, or an extension of the clitoris. It is named after German gynecologist Ernst Grafenberg, although a Dutch doctor had first described this female erogenous zone in the 17th Century. It is commonly thought to be found between 1 and 3 inches up the front wall of the vagina.

Pubic hair has a lifespan of just 3 weeks; which explains why it never grows past a certain length.
