By the terms of this, my uncle bound himself to satisfy Rankeillor as to his intromissions, and to pay me two clear thirds of the yearly income of Shaws.
For nature (as the physicians allege) having intended the superior anterior orifice only for the intromission of solids and liquids, and the inferior posterior for ejection, these artists ingeniously considering that in all diseases nature is forced out of her seat, therefore, to replace her in it, the body must be treated in a manner directly contrary, by interchanging the use of each orifice; forcing solids and liquids in at the anus, and making evacuations at the mouth.
The neurobehavioral alterations quantified in the studies they reviewed include activity level, aggression, mounting frequency, and completed intromissions.
A single male rat was placed in the arena for 5 min and was permitted two intromissions with a stimulus female to ensure his sexual vigor.
Sexual behavior was evaluated by examining the number of mounts, intromissions, ejaculations, ejaculation latencies (in seconds), and grooming frequencies in a 30-min test period with each sexually receptive female as per well-established procedures in our laboratories (Hull et al.
The test was conducted in a clear Plexiglas arena (70 x 35 x 40 cm high), where a male rat was placed for a 5-min period and was allowed two intromissions with a stimulus non-experimental female to ensure his sexual vigor.
We evaluated male sexual behavior by examining the number of mounts, intromissions, ejaculations, ejaculation latencies (in seconds) and grooming frequencies in a 30-min test period with each sexually receptive female as per established procedures (16).
Latent times of observation, intromission and ejaculation, mounting behavior, number of intromissions and mating performances were evaluated and compared to those obtained with untreated rats in the presence of receptive and non-receptive females.
We recorded or calculated the following male behaviors: number of mounts, number of intromissions, latency to mount, latency to intromission, latency to ejaculation, postejaculatory interval, copulatory rate, and copulatory efficiency (26,22).
Oral administration of a purified lipidic extracts from Lepidium meyenii and Anacyclus pyrethrum increased intromissions and mounts frequency in normal mice (Zheng et al.
An ejaculation occurs after 6-15 intromissions and is followed by a period of 5-10 minutes post ejaculatory interval during which the male is refractory to further copulatory activity.
It is not a trivial matter as, given the number of ways of capturing and reproducing images that exist today, the autonomous constitution of the right to one's own image is a guarantee against all of the illegitimate intromissions to which a person can be subjected.
