Nowadays People Have Less #Sex

springloveThose ladybugs didn’t get the memo but humans, like Cartman say, ‘I do what I want‘. Sad but true, a study shows that people are having less sex today than they did back in the late 90s. It’s more statistically significant for people in relationships. Compared to yesteryear, couples are having sex an average of 16 fewer times per year and ‘free agents’ are having sex 9 fewer times per year. Researchers think it has to do with depression, later start in marriage, and smarphones. Google it. Relative to the article featured on Wednesday – does anybody see a vicious cycle here? Less sex fosters moody people with less productivity. Is there such a thing as a male ladybug?

The True Safety of #YellowCabs

yellowcabIf your only reference for yellow cabs is from the scene in “Elf“, you may think the yellow ones don’t stop. But according to this study, perhaps it was the brainchild of the yellow cab commission? Only looking at color of taxis, the study found that yellow taxis are more visible in traffic and the vehicles have a lower incidence of accidents. Dark colored cabs, ride-sharing vehicles, and any other ‘non yellow’ modes of transportation just blend like camouflage in the concrete jungle. Don’t be a statistic. Judge your taxis on their color. Feels wrong to say that but the study says it’s the truth.  If safety is the deciding factor for you, there’s always the bus or flying. What if this whole study is just sitting on a throne of lies?

How Your #SexLife May Influence #WorkPerformance

officeassholeI’m pretty sure your potential employer cannot ask you about your sex life but according to the study, it might forecast whether or not you’d be an asset to the organization.  Researchers found that people who had a good sex life tended to perform well in their job capacity. It is believed that a regular orgasm floods the brain with dopamine, the neurotransmitter that tickles the reward center in the brain. Furthermore it releases oxytocin. Together the two create a special cocktail that encourages bonding. The combination of the two makes for a much more pleasant work experience for all. The key to most everything in life is balance. As stressful as your day can be at work, when you get home it should be a sanctuary free of work related stress. Decompressing, relaxing, and creatively constructing ways to enjoy your time away from work is job #1. Do yourself and your coworkers a favor – when you get home from work, do a hard reboot and reset the system.

Confusing Study on #Soy Link to #BreastCancer

breastcancerMaybe I’m overthinking it but I’m all sorts of confused about the soy link to breast cancer. Many people who have experienced breast cancer feel that there’s a strong correlation to soy consumption and the incidence of breast cancer. In fact, Breastcancer.og posted an article claiming that soy turns-on the gene linked to cancer growth. But now we’re seeing a study published that says soy doesn’t worsen breast cancer and may even prevent it. I’m speechless but The take-home remarks from a lead author in the study were resoundingly ambiguous: ”We recommend that readers keep in mind that soy foods can potentially have an impact, but only as a component of an overall healthy diet.” Potentially have an impact, eh? Drop the mic.

How Smart Do You Need Your #Condom to Be?

iconNot only is the name captivating but its spellbinding capabilities are unparalleled. The i.Con is a new “smart condom” that can let you know if your latest hook-up left you with more than memorable throwers of passion. Although the steps needed to be taken before the official barrier-to-entry are less than discreet, the i.Con can tell you if you’re potential hookup is not only winsome but also  losing with a bouquet of sexually transmitted infections. Here are the FAQs for inquiring minds. The beauty of this technological salacious crutch is that all the info can be sent your smartphone. ‘Not only have we innovated the world’s first Smart Condom Ring that’ll measure pretty much every aspect of performance in the bedroom, but now I’m pleased to confirm that it will also have built-in indicators to alert the users to any potential STIs present,’ says Adam Leverson, lead engineer on the project. Making the world a little smarter in their sexual exploits, one condom at a time. Way to go, i.Con. Best story on the ‘smart condom’ is CNET’s recap calling it “a FitBit for your man bits.” Amazing.

The #Female #OrgasmGap

satisfactionThe headline yesterday is 100% accurate and the fact remains that many women aren’t getting their fair share of orgasms. The painful truth  is the need for tolerance and the tolerance for needs. It’s Friday so let’s discuss sexy plans for the weekend. If someone is seeking the hidden secret to get her to O-town, scientists think they’ve got the map for that someone. Let’s look at the climax ratio first. When heterosexual couples were asked, 95% of men reported climaxing, whereas only 65% of females got there. Lesbian couples had a much higher batting average with an 86% climax rate. However gay men seemed to get by with an 89% average. Okay so the 3-tips for the holy grail of her orgasm are deep kissing, genital stimulation, and oral sex. Women have to get their mind into it, whereas men just need their other head to be into it. Get her mind, body, and soul on the love-making train (whatever vehicle of choice) and it increases the chances of mutually arriving on-time.  If a guy’s trying to increase his odds on the jolly trolley, avoid intense exercise, buckaroo.

Successful #BlackWomen Miss #Orgasm Quota

successfulblackwomanDid you know that the female orgasm is a benchmark for overall health? This is a statement made by a female doctor who appeared on the Dr. Oz Show a few years ago. She had recommended that females have at least 3 orgasms per week. It drew gasps from the audience. This is what compelled her to dig deeper into the problem. The starling fact revealed in a recent article is that black women higher on the corporate ladder tend to exude more of a masculine energy, which impairs their overall sexual health. Stress relief, mood, pain relief, and depression are not being lifted if these lovely hard-working ladies are not being satisfied. Dr. Andrea Pennington is pretty-well respected and a remarkable speaker, so much so that she was invited to give a TED Talk on “Become Who You Really Are”. So the subject at hand today is the fact that black women, as they climb higher on the corporate ladder, suffer the most in their 3-weekly organs. She was inspired to write the book the “Orgasm Prescription for Women”. The book aims to help women to extract the most pleasure from their sexual experiences by addressing the root cause of limiting beliefs. The program described in her book amounts to a 21-day commitment but if you’re up for a 3-step fix for the female orgasm – come back tomorrow (no pun intended).

T1 and T2 #Diabetes and #Fasting Really?

fastingDO NOT TRY THIS WITHOUT MEDICAL SUPERVISION!! Let me share a story from my life back in 2008. I was on the brink of kidney failure and a British researcher had taken a personal interest in my plight with Type 1 diabetes and my body riddled with diabetes complications. He implored I try water-fasting. Because of my lack in willpower, inability to maintain consistent blood sugar, or a combination of both – I bowed-out of the challenge each time I tried it. Now, with the results of this study, I’m wondering if I could’ve tried harder to adhere to a diet of 800-1100 calories, per day. The foods would be low-carb, low-protein, but high in unsaturated fats like nuts. This would go on for 5-days and then the other 25-days of the month it would be a normal diet again with no restrictions. Apparently, a study shows this began to regenerate the deficient beta cells in the pancreas, enhancing the body’s ability to regulate blood sugar. Furthermore, this was shown to be effective for both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. If only my parents had known this back in 1985, something tells me the autoimmune war launched on my insulin-producing cells won’t have ceased fire. But a girl can dream. Nicholas Dynes Gracey, come-out, come-out wherever you are!

Relieving the #Pain of #Heroin Overdose

Papaver field single poppy flowerSuch a pretty flower, the poppy. However, the beautiful flower when processed into heroin is responsible for 1 in 4 overdoses in the US. The number of heroin users in the US is shocking, and ranges from the unsuspecting soccer-mom to the typical curious teenager. It’s hard to believe a derivative of pain medications, prescribed by learned doctors, could kill you but it’s a real struggle. A census report from 2014 estimated there are 1 million heroin users in the US. Naloxone is a fast way to treat opioid overdose and will last for up to an hour. Continue to watch the person who’s overdosed for symptoms of recurrence, as Naloxone wears off. Unfortunately, the number of heroin overdoses has quadruples in the last 5-years. Is the source of the problem the availability of the drugs or the pain leading to the use of it?  Prescription drugs to relief pain are very necessary. However, when the ship has sailed and it’s no longer necessary to take pain medication, wouldn’t it be magical to have a PET scan of the brain to verify Elvis has left the building? Experts say addiction is like diabetes, a chronic disease whereby people need to make treatment a part of their life.

#BumbleBees Are Fiercely Intelligent

bumblebeeThe bumble bee population is a species becoming extinct but the alarming truth is that these guys may be smarter than a 5th grader. Don’t worry, moms and dads, this is all a relative study. Your kids aren’t in dire straits, yet. Bees were actually taught to place a ball into a goal.  This tool use has typically been a feat of higher functioning animals. Another thing researchers witnessed of bees in this study was a learned behavior to solve more complex problems. Even though the bee population is woefully undeserved and the pollinating calendar is suffering, maybe bees can fix this problem, after all? Forget those artificial intelligent bees science is conjuring-up in the lab. The real thing may be more advanced than the AI version.
