Facts and discussions about humanity, its current state, and where its heading.
Mistakes Men Make with Women
Man was not meant to live alone. We are a sharing species, living in groups, depending on the care, feeding, and nurturance of others of our own kind. We seek out relationships in which the bond is love, and although we may find satisfactions in life without it, loving another person builds a solid base of happiness in our lives. It is the sharing of joy and security, the pleasure and sometimes even the pain of being in love that gives us that special lift, that exhilaration we call happiness.
Nude Self Portraits of 100 Women
They weren’t wearing hats, and in 1923 women without hats sitting in public cafés were looked upon, even in Paris, as prostitutes. Man Ray, the great dadaist artist and photographer, once observed the prejudice and described it in his illustrated biography entitled Self-Portrait. One of the two young ladies was Kiki, a model much sought after by the poor painters of Montparnasse who later gained worldwide fame; She soon became Man Ray’s mistress and his favorite model as well.
Is Erectile Dysfunction All in Your Head?
There are probably more myths and misconceptions responsible for the madness surrounding the words "impotence" or "erectile dysfunction" than for any other malady affecting mankind. No doubt because it has to do with that very sensitive subject so dear to man—sex. And although experts, since the first bite of the apple, have labored mightily to lift the curtain of ignorance, man has, for the most part, ignored their efforts and continued to tremble at the mere mention of the word.
The Worst Date I’ve Ever Been On
He took me to a beautiful French restaurant in Los Angeles for dinner on a crisp fall evening in 2007. He had approached me at the coffee shop the week before and asked me out, after chatting me up while we both sipped pumpkin spice lattes. He was friendly and sported the salt and pepper hair that hinted he was probably a touch older than the men I usually dated, but I agreed to a date because I wanted to give it a chance.
Gender Fluidity in Rock and Roll
Throughout history there has been a strict rule of thumb, men are men and women are women. But in the early 1970s, Rock and Roll musicians broke that rule when they dipped their toes into the glittery waters of glam androgyny. Traditionally, Rock has always been on the cutting edge of cool and has characteristically been a patriarchal dominant genre. That tradition changed with Glam Rock. It ushered in a new generation of people breaking social and sexual norms by embracing femininity.
How Smell Affects Sex
Why does a rose smell like a rose? We know it looks like a rose because we can define shape, texture, and color. But to define its smell is beyond us. Smell is the sense we know the least about and, like all mysteries, it holds enormous erotic potential.
Birth Control's Bizarre Past
Casanova, throughout his long and active life in and out of the feather beds of Europe, was especially fond of his golden balls. No, we’re not referencing his genitals, though he did probably hold them to a golden esteem. Even so great a lover as Casanova had to contend with the mundane technicalities of contraception, and the balls he cherished were solid gold and 18 mm in diameter. Working on the theory that if the seed did not come in contact with the egg there would be nothing to regret, he gingerly positioned one of these elegant obstacles (aka diaphragms) inside his breathless lady lover. In the bizarre history of Casanova, he is known to have fathered more than a handful of golden children, and his birth control methods, often referred to as contraceptive ingenuity, would seem to have been less than reliable. But at least it was long-lasting. One golden ball was reported to have been in regular use for more than 15 years. In terms of his initial investment amortized over his sustained sexual prowess, he certainly got his money's worth.
Why Men Cheat
The late, great Nat King Cole sang a song years back called Haji Baba which put forth the following message: "Haji has said, 'When love is forbidden. Love is so sweet, love is so sweet...'"
What Is Your Sexual Personality?
The sexual adjustment and behavior patterns, often referred to as sexual personality, of human beings are probably more varied and divergent than almost any other aspect of their diversity. Scientific interest has hitherto centered either on abnormalities, which have been exhaustively studied in the form of case histories and anecdotes by psychiatrists and psychoanalysts, or a census-type data collected on large samples, "broken down," as the saying goes, by age and sex—Kinsey's work is an example of this type of approach. We learn from published data that Americans on the average have intercourse two to three times a week, but this kind of information is almost useless when it is realized that some people have intercourse once a month, while others have intercourse several times a night—the wife of the "Boston strangler" complained that her husband insisted on having intercourse something like 14 times a day! ("Complained" is the operative word—some women might have welcomed such dutiful attendance.)
Why Men Search Teen Porn
American teenagers can carry a gun, defend this country, and vote for its president at the age of 18. How hard is it to extrapolate that their female friends can stream nude images, lesbian sex, and reverse cowgirl moves to entertain and delight those hardworking American boys.
Freudians Slip as Their Psychology Is Questioned
Sigmund Freud was a famous neurologist, popularly known as the father of psychology. Thanks to his teachings in the late 1850s, people have spent thousands of dollars to sit on a couch and tell a complete stranger how they really feel about their mother – and why it strangely turns them on.
What Is Consensual Adultery?
Out of all the experiences thus far in my life, marriage has been hands down, the most challenging. I know, I know, you would assume I would say parenting because I just love to complain about the crappy diapers, sleepless nights, and leftover fat that is motherhood, but no way Jose, marriage absolutely takes the “difficulty” cake. Don’t get me wrong, raising children (and good ones at that) is no easy task with them constantly testing our patience, kindness, and sanity, but there is one huge difference that makes it all worth it and that is unconditional love. Not a day goes by where I don’t feel the undeniable love from both of my children. Even after a slap on the wrist or a 10-minute time out, they are guaranteed to not only forgive me but hug, kiss, and love me mere moments later. Now for my husband, not so much. If only he would show affection minutes after I rip him a new asshole, then life would be just grand. Usually after a fight with my bitchy filthy-mouthed self, doors are slammed and names are called and if I’m really feeling feisty I’ll throw in a bullshit threat as a cherry on top. Then the pity party ensues, the sulking, and the pondering if this is what marriage is supposed to be like. It’s crazy how a few minutes of nasty word vomit can erase years of happiness.
