Averages:

 

Every square inch of the human body has an average of 32 million bacteria on it. (Yikes!)

The words "assassination"and "bump" were invented by Shakespeare. If you say "laugh it off" you are also quoting shakespeare. Other inventions included ´puke´ and ´bedroom´.

Ever wonder why a groom carries a bride over the threshold on their wedding night?  It was considered a very bad omen if the bride tripped or fell into her home on her wedding night.  So the groom would carry her over the threshold to ensure that she safely entered the home.

Staring at a blue surface during sex greatly increases the intensity of orgasms. (Due to the angle at which the optic nerve enters the brain apperantly!)

Thai green curry is the best take-away for a sexy night in.
Ingredients including cardamom, ginseng, garlic, ginger, basil, lemon grass and asparagus "all found in a typical green curry " are widely believed to enhance the sex drive.
A pizza can be just as effective. And if it’s topped with the winning combination of tomatoes, onions, garlic, basil and olives ( or even with a hint of chilli or spicy meatballs ) can be a winner.
Women in need of some spice should opt for a korma the Indian dish contains a potent mix of coconut, garlic, chilli, ginger and almonds, all of which are said particularly to improve the female libido.

Walrus bulls have a harem which they defend and invite to join them underwater for copulation.

 

At 30 inches, a fully extended walrus penis is the longest of any mammal relative to body size..

This probably has little to do with heart attacks and is merely due to the fact that 85% of men cheat on their wives anyway!

did you know that .........Far more than a sex manual, the Kama Sutra, directed at the young Indian bon vivant, gives advice on everything from etiquette to house furnishings. Its 64 practices make up a curriculum of arts, skills, and information recommended for the well-bred person: tattooing, calligraphy, fencing, cooking, solving riddles, knowledge of mining, practicing sleight of hand, the science of war, teaching a parrot to talk, and more. It tells how to choose a mate, obtain power and wealth through love, make love, seduce women, use aphrodisiacs and artificial stimulation.
