Researchers at the University of Groningen found that 80% of couples reached orgasm while wearing socks while only 50% managed to climax without socks.

Their reasoning is simple: wearing socks, in addition to keeping you warm, help the blood vessels in your feet dilate, allowing for improved blood flow. This not only helps you doze off more quickly, it also facilitates earth-shattering orgasms.

Next time your significant other, booty call or what have you wants to try something crazy, bust out those socks and tell her how it works.
