When it comes to history, we rarely get taught about sex and sexuality – unless you’re taking a specific college course. In fact, we rarely get taught about sex and sexuality at all.
While it’s obvious that things change and progress over centuries (we aren’t exactly using carrier pigeons anymore), some stuff seems to have gone… backwards.
Whether you’re aware of it or not, stress can be either a trick or a treat in your body’s environment. It can be useful and detrimental to our survival.
I want to pose this article under a controversial premise. Stress is a healthy body response tailored to our survival.
Prolonged stress in the body is toxic, and a choice the majority of us entertain for far too long.
Although Galentine’s Day has come and gone, March 8 marks another chance to revel in gal power around the world…
As if we ever need an excuse for that!
That’s right, it’s International Women’s Day once again. The feminine fest dedicated to celebrating our greatest triumphs and inspiring further progress in the purest sense.
Everyday it seems that some new technological advance is being made, and us mere mortals are often left struggling to keep up with the latest trends on the market. One of these advances is the advent of the sex robot.
Yes, you read that right.
When setting the mood for sexy night in, there’s a countless supply of tantalizing tools to help with the job. But what’s the biggest, most unsuspecting culprit at risk of making or breaking a bedroom session?

This week in our Sex and the Brain series, we explored the differences of arousal between men and women.
While it may be obvious to some that men and women don’t get aroused the same, many still have not acquired this piece of knowledge. Men are like frying pans, and women are like slow cookers – so let’s get down to the science behind the kitchen appliance metaphors.
Yet another lesson in the wonders of the sexiest organ of all, the brain.
In the previous article, I introduced some of our main pleasure chemicals. In this one we’ll be focusing on the more familiar estrogen and testosterone, with a more in-depth look at the previously mentioned dopamine, and the well-known serotonin.
If there’s one thing we can agree on, it’s that sex feels pretty great.
The movement, the closeness, the sensation-filled surge of things firing in every direction. It’s a true cocktail of chemicals released throughout the brain and body delivering pleasure in the purest sense.
As it turns out, our brain is one big bulbous druggie. Not the kind you find in dark alley ways when the sun goes down, nor the drugs that line the neon alleys of CVS.
Alas our crafty brain has it’s very own pharmacy of pleasure from which it releases its unique brands of intoxicating hormones according to each appropriate (or inappropriate) occasion.
Anyone who’s ever cracked open a Guinness Book of World Records can vouch there’s one for almost everything. Longest pizza, tallest couple, most people shoved inside a car… virtually every topic is covered, even when it comes to sex!
