So here I am, minding my own business as I Google about looking for statistics about love for this Valentine’s Day post. And wham! I discover research from the renowned London School of Economics that states Thursday is the best day of the week for some time between the sheets. Okay, so it’s according to The Sun newspaper and try as I might, I couldn’t find the primary source.

But it got me to thinking.

Why Thursdays? And what do you do if Valentine’s Day falls on a Monday?

They claim your sexual synchronicity is highest on Thursdays because of a couple’s matching hormone levels. But do my hormones really know it’s Thursday? I wonder.

Studies like these show we have biorhythms just like any other living creature; but I wouldn’t get too caught up in having to conform to what the mainstream tells you is ‘normal’. We all have our own pace of life, which changes over time.

Happy Valentine’s Day, All!

Retrevo, an online gadget shop, came up with a neat survey whose results are not that surprising. The 35 and under crowd is clearly in love with its mae westPDAs. In fact, 36% of those surveyed said they updated their social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter immediately after sexual intercourse. A most upsetting 40% admitted to doing so while driving (updating, that is!).

Whether they are driving an automobile or their love life, clearly a large number of younger folks have shifted their focus from a hands-on approach to a more digital one. Virtual worlds are starting to trump their real ones.

I can’t help but think of Mae West who once offered up a great slow quote well before the days of digital devices in the boudoir.

“Anything worth doing is worth doing slowly.”

The next headline might very well read: More people engaged in social media than to each other. But who needs an engagement when you’ve got post-coital tweets to keep you warm at night?
