A recent study conducted by Dr Foo of the Department of Neural Psychology at the University of British Columbia confirms that scratchy blankets make better sex.
The 4 year study was conducted with over 2000 subjects and compared couples having sex in fleece, cotton and wool blankets.
The subject’s brains were scanned as they were having sex. The results were undeniable says Dr. Foo “the scratchier the blanket the better the sex”.
“We don’t know exactly how it works but the results were significant; the coitus level in both our male and female participants was significantly higher when they were using scratchy blankets”.
According to Dr. Foo, the scratchy wool stimulates through the skin a region of the brain associated with the intensity of orgasms. The process is called scratchyacheama were millions of scratchy wool particles stimulate the skin and apparently improve sex.
The inspiration for the study began when a group of scientist observing chimpanzees at the San Diego Zoo noticed that the ones sleeping on wool blankets were more tactile and sexual then the ones sleeping on other types of blankets.
This discovery may well one day replace drugs such as Sildenafil Citrate or Tadalafil (better known as Viagra or Cialis). "I can see a time in the not-too-distant future when people will surround themselves with scratchy wool blankets or wear scratchy wool pyjamas during sex", says Dr. Foo. The discovery is now used in many zoos to promote reproduction among mammals.
As to where they purchased those too-good-to-be-true blankets for their study, Dr Foo was hesitant to reveal his source but eventually yielded. “We found the scratchiest blankets at Le Marché St George here in Vancouver. They manufacture the scratchiest blankets we could find and it did the job”.
The study will appear in the next edition of the New England Journal of Medicine.
