Next time you see someone you wish you hadn’t been so snuggly with, you’ve got a medical excuse you can whip out for pretending to forget you’d whipped it out with them: you have sex induced amnesia! Yep, the technical term is transient global amnesia (TGA) and can occur during physical or emotional stress and, according to the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry, after sex. A 64-year-old man was diagnosed with TGA after his wife reported that he’d been confused after at least five of their sexual encounters and kept asking what they were doing and what time of the year it was. This confusion lasted from between 30 to 60 minutes and, afterwards, he didn’t remember that they had just had sex. Maybe she was just that good? Amusingly enough, the man had a 20-year history of migraines (including intercourse-triggered headaches). Now we know what happens when they don’t say, "not tonight, I have a headache."

Okay... it’s not quite ready yet, but it’s closer to reality than ever before. And if it works for the Italians you know it’s gotta work for everyone else. A new study, published in the November issue of the journal, Fertility and Sterility, cites an Italian study where eight healthy Italian men were given pills containing cyproterone acetate and testosterone undecanoate twice a day for 16 weeks. The drug blocks sperm production and allows the libido to remain unaffected. Though not all men had their sperm count drop to absolute zero, the count dropped low enough to be effectively considered infertile. The new medication appears to have no significant side effects and all test subject’s sperm counts returned to normal within three months of discontinuing treatment. It’s about damn time.

Ever "lose wood" while fumbling with a conventional condom? Of course not, but it’s probably happened to one of your more pathetic pals, right? Well, Leon Kassman thinks he’s got the solution: the Condax condom applicator. Kassman’s inspiration was his young son’s "pop-it" (a small plastic tube that snaps together to make a train). He realized that he if he could slip a condom inside of a tube, already inflated, it would be a simple trip to slide it over his steaming turtlehead of love and be back to the hard work of making turtle soup in no time. A partial vacuum holds the condom inside the Condax and, when the seal is broken, the vacuum is relaxed and the condom expands, accordion-like. When it’s time to put on your jimmy hat you just slide the open Condax over your working part, slide the applicator off and get down to business. The Condax must be approved by the FDA since it touches condoms which then enter women’s bodies, and Kassman hopes to license his device to condom manufacturers and have it on the market by late next year for about five bucks per three-pack.
