Female dolphins enjoy clitoral stimulation, study suggests

Published

on

A study published this Monday (10) in the scientific journal Current Biology suggests that female dolphins enjoy clitoral stimulation. When analyzing the anatomy of the organ, scientists found several sensitive nerves and erectile bodies, structures similar to those of the human clitoris.

The organs, large and well-developed, are located at the entrance to the vagina. The study claims that the location may favor stimulation during penetration; there are also reports of females using their snouts and fins to stimulate other females.

“We knew that dolphins have sex not only to reproduce but also to solidify social bonds, so it seemed likely that the clitoris could be functional,” says lead researcher Patricia Brennan.

The clitoris of 11 bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) killed by natural causes. As the animal has a very different pelvis from the human being, the researchers were surprised to find very human-like structures.

Among them, several sensory nerves, structures responsible for receiving stimuli and taking them to the Central Nervous System. Some were more than half a millimeter in diameter, suggesting that the dolphin’s clitoris is a very sensitive area to tactile stimulation.

Scientists have also studied erectile bodies, areas that fill with blood during arousal. According to Brennan, its shape changes as the dolphin matures and is “surprisingly similar” to humans.

Furthermore, the study points to genital corpuscles very similar to humans, similar to those already found in the human clitoris and the tip of the penis, structures involved in the pleasure response.

Gaps in the study of female sexuality

The motivation for the study came when Brennan’s team was studying the evolution of dolphin vaginas. “Every time we dissected a vagina, we saw this very large clitoris, and we were curious if anyone had examined it in detail to see if it functioned like a human clitoris,” says the researcher.

There are few studies on female sexuality in nature — the human clitoris itself was not fully described until the 1990s. For Brennan, the neglect of the study of female sexuality leaves an incomplete picture of the true nature of sexual behaviors. “It’s a fundamental part of understanding the animal experience and could even have important medical applications in the future,” says the researcher.

Brennen and the other researchers hope the study will be one of several on the female sexuality of dolphins and other vertebrates, contributing to understanding the meaning of sexual pleasure in the context of evolution and the role of female orgasm.

Samsung is preparing a smartphone that will be weaker than its predecessor two years ago. Galaxy M54 will receive SoC Exynos 1380

Samsung is preparing a smartphone that will be weaker than

Smartphone Samsung Galaxy M54 lit up in the Geekbench database. Unfortunately, as previously reported, he will not receive any SoC Snapdragon 888, although this is expected.

Samsung’s mid-budget novelty will receive the same platform as the Galaxy A54. Probably, the Galaxy A34 will also receive it.

We are talking about the not yet presented Exynos 1380, which will replace the Exynos 1280. In the benchmark, the new SoC scores 750 and almost 2700 points in single-threaded and multi-threaded modes, respectively. And this is almost the level of Snapdragon 778G, that is, this is an excellent result for a mid-budget smartphone. True, we are only talking about processor performance, and we do not yet know which GPU the new SoC will receive.

It is also worth noting that the Galaxy M52 was also based on the Snapdragon 778G, and the Galaxy M53 received a slightly less productive Dimensity 900. Thus, the Galaxy M54 model, at least in terms of the processor part, will be slightly inferior even not to its predecessor, but to the device two years ago.

Bullitt Group and MediaTek want to launch a satellite enabled smartphone

The British manufacturer Bullitt Group, which produces devices under the brands CAT and Motorola, intends to release a smartphone with satellite communications. They want to implement this project together with the Chinese chipmaker MediaTek.

It is assumed that the new smartphone will provide calls and text data via satellite, although it is not yet clear how this will work. The device itself will be released in the first quarter of 2023.

The novelty has been developed for two years, so the project is nearing completion. According to Bullitt Group co-founder Richard Wharton, previously the seamless integration of satellite communications into a smartphone was accompanied by problems, but now they are solved.

The new phone will be the first to use MediaTek’s 3GPP NTN chipset. The software will keep track of what type of connection is currently being used – Wi-Fi or cellular network. The connection to the satellite will be carried out only in the absence of both of these options.

It is claimed that the time to connect to the satellite and send a message is about 10 seconds. This is longer than a regular connection, but still pretty fast.

Note that Apple already has this and Samsung will soon have it.

The GeForce RTX 4080 can also be overclocked to incredible

Galax continues to prove that they are one of the best when it comes to overclocking graphics cards. After the departure of EVGA, Galax as a whole is probably the only company that places a strong emphasis on this direction.

The GeForce RTX 4080 can also be overclocked to incredible frequencies.  Galax RTX 4080 SG took the frequency over 3.6 GHz on the core

The GeForce RTX 4080 SG model was able to overclock to a frequency of over 3.6 GHz on the core. More precisely, we are talking about a frequency of 3615 MHz. This is slightly less than the RTX 4090 HOF at 3.8 GHz, but it’s still an incredible figure. Especially if you keep in mind that the GeForce RTX 4080 SG is no match for the HOF versions. At the same time, it is not yet known whether Galax will release the RTX 4080 HOF.

Galax, unfortunately, does not disclose overclocking details, but it can be assumed that we are talking about the use of liquid nitrogen, as in the case of extreme overclocking RTX 4090 HOF.
