There are many strange things affect your libido, like food (avocados), smells (petrol and paint), switching your medication, career changes and so much more. What tends to raise and lower your libido also is very unique to you. Each person has different preferences and unique biochemistry.

Sometimes it takes experimenting to find out what works for you. If you notice that your libido plummeted from starting a new medical regimen, then tell your doctor and see what he or she recommends. If you notice that your busy schedule is killing your sex drive, then try to make more time for sleep (and sexy time)

Those are just some examples of what you can do to feel friskier, but some things that have worked for others are things you’ve never even thought about! Yes, there have been many studies on the subject.

How Social Justice Warriors Are Creating An Entire Generation Of Fascists

Thought Catalog

IMG_7859

One lasting legacy (among others) of the Soviet Union is its deceptive distortion of language – dressing up ugliness with innocuous and nice-sounding terms, as predicted by George Orwell in his seminal and much-quoted work Nineteen Eighty-Four. For example, if someone says that they’re for “human rights”, that means that they’re for Stalinist thought control, hardcore government authoritarianism, and international warmongering. “Human rights activists” are, in actuality, a vile, twisted, and extremely dangerous plague upon humanity. So, too, are the self-proclaimed supporters of “social justice” (who are, of course, often the same people). “Social justice” blogging is most associated with Tumblr, a blogging platform started in February 2007 which is now among the most visited sites on the Internet. “Social justice” bloggers are notoriously zealous and exceptionally nasty people, which has led to the coining of the ironic term “social justice warrior”…

What It’s Like To Be The Campus Slut

Thought Catalog

Kunstakademiets Designskole Kunstakademiets Designskole

When I came to college, I was, like a lot of my classmates, a virgin. I’d only had my first kiss a few weeks before, and it was a sloppy, awkward, and utterly unsophisticated. I was eighteen, and had never had a relationship, or even been asked out on a date. Nearly four years later, virtually nothing has changed except that my entire 900-person campus has painted me as the campus slut.

Maybe it’s warranted. I lost my virginity early in the fall of my freshman year to a guy who ended up struggling with his sexuality for the next year and a half, before coming out and becoming one of my best friends. Since then, I’ve had sex or “hooked up with” (here meaning doing everything except sex) with thirteen guys, twelve of whom are either my classmates or recent alums of my school.

As a student…

Just like every girl needs a girlfriend, every guy needs a bro.

Here’s a list of activities you and your bro can do to keep that bromance alive.

1. Attend a bro-oriented event together.

Be it a car show or a hockey game, it’s always better with your bro. If you have male kids, bring them along too so they can learn how bros are supposed to act. Just make sure you’re setting a good example.

2. Fix something together.

It could be your car, it could be the plumbing in your bro’s basement; fixing something together is a great way to bond with your bro. Perhaps you have a handyman skill he doesn’t and vice versa; by helping each other out you also save on the cost of hiring someone else to do the job. After all, what are bros for?

3. Take martial-arts…

BMI: Is This Scale Broken For Black Women?

Black America Web

Body mass index (BMI) is a measure of body fat based on height and weight that applies to most adult men and women. It does not measure body fat directly. BMI is an inexpensive and easy-to-perform method of screening to identify possible weight problems for adults. Epidemiologists use BMI to calculate national obesity rates.

A British Journal of Nutrition published a study that found the BMI formulawhich is widely used to determine body fat, may not be accurate for non-Caucasian, multicultural populations. The current BMI categories state:

Underweight = <18.5

Normal weight = 18.5–24.9

Overweight = 25–29.9

Obesity = BMI of 30 or greater

“This scale was created years ago and is based on Caucasian men and women. It doesn’t take into account differences in body composition between genders, race/ethnicity groups and across the life span,” says Molly Bray, an associate professor of pediatrics at Baylor College of…

White Ribbon For Abuse Awareness

(Originally Published on November 24 2014 by Huffington Post, then retracted due to complaints by feminists about my status as an MRA and my involvement with A Voice for Men)

I had a childhood filled with physical, psychological, and sexual abuse. Men who talk about these things are frequently mocked, referred to as whiners, and told to “get over it,” so most of us remain silent. We try to forget.

There’s nothing healthy about wallowing in your past, holding on to it, and nursing it like an old wound. But it’s also not healthy to bury those experiences, hiding them in a box, never talking or thinking about them. The path to healing is to look at your past, recognise it, acknowledge it, even talk about it, and then transcend it to become a better person.

It has been my honour over the past few years to become friends with…
