Our bodies can be strange and fascinating all at the same time, more so when it comes to having s*x. As such, magazines and journalists all over the world have been obsessed with revealing as many weird facts about s&x as they can get their hands on, and we just so happen to have a compact list of the thirty weirdest s*x facts that you might not know.
Many facts about s*x have become knowledge, but some still lay hidden in secret, just waiting to be discovered. The following facts may have you thinking for quite some time.

11Humans are not the only ones interested in performing oral sex, wolves, bears and bats are also known to participate in the practice quite often.
