Sex Trivia vs. Sexy Quizzes

Sexy quizzes from sources like the magazine Cosmopolitan (it was book research, I swear!) pose questions like: “What is your passion personality?” What these sexy quizzes usually leave out is real scientific facts. Then again, if these quizzes supplied accurate analysis they would have to boringly announce to virtually every quiz-taker that they are merely a sexually normal human.

Alternately, the sex facts and sexual trivia in this blog, website and book are designed to provide a better understanding of sexual health and human sexuality–not just a rating of your kinkiness.

Female sex fact: the etymology of some female body-parts.

  • Hymen: originally the Greek word for membrane.
  • Vagina: Latin word for sheath.
  • Clitoris: likely stems from Greek words meaning little hill or key.
  • Labia: derived from the Latin word meaning lips.
  • Mons Pubis: Latin word for mountain joined with the name for the bone beneath this spot.
