How Often Should You Be Having Sex?

Posted by admin | No Comments

How often should I be having sex?

That’s the number one question that I get from my patients. And it sounds like a simple question, too. But it’s not so simple to answer. There’s no way I can tell you how often you “should” have sex—that depends on so many things, such as your age and health and a host of other things. But I can tell you what I wrote in my book Size Matters about research on how often people actually have sex. It turns out that for married couples under 30 years of age; the frequency (on average) is about twice a week.  Viagra super active helps patients with erectile dysfunction feel superheroes in bed.

For married couples between the ages of 50-59, the frequency is about once week. So now you know how often your neighbors may be having sex. But remember, these are averages. Some couples are happy with more frequent sex, some happy with less frequent sex. And that’s really the point: not how much sex you’re having, but whether you and your partner are happy with the sex you’re having, regardless of the frequency. If one, or both, of you isn’t happy then there are plenty of things that might be going on. I love to say that the “Penis is the dipstick of the bodies’ health”.

Sex gives us a clue to how healthy an individual—and a relationship really is. In my next blog, I’ll focus on how to have more sex and why some couples rarely have sex.

The Gibraltar Airport Runway

Posted by admin | No Comments

The Gibraltar Airport runway crosses the narrow isthmus. Cars must cross the runway when driving from British Gibraltar to Spain on the other side.

Look closely. You can see the jet going along the runway and a truck waiting to cross on the road.

Bizarre Body Modifications

Posted by admin | No Comments
  • Eyeball Tattoo

Corneal tattooing is not only possible, but it has been known and done now for over 2,000 years — it became almost commonplace in the late 19th century and into the 20th century to correct defects such as corneal scarring and leucomas. These days, it is done less often because contact lenses are very effective at covering these defects, and prosthetic technology is also more accessible. However, not everyone can wear contact lenses, and not everyone wants their eyeball popped out even if it is blind; hence cosmetic tattooing of the eye.

  • Scarification

Scarification is the creative and artistic application of scars in a controlled manner to achieve an aesthetically or spiritually pleasing result. In the process of body scarification, scars are formed by cutting the skin. Even though many people hold that scarification is no more painful than tattooing, it is somehow more “intense” to most of them.

  • 3D-Art Implant

A 3D-Art implant is any object implanted fully under the skin for the purpose of affecting a sculptural change of the surface. The “invention” and popularization of implants as 3D-Art is credited primarily to Steve Haworth. Implants can be stretched just like piercings. A good example of this are horn implants—they start as smaller implants, and are then taken out when healed and replaced with slightly larger ones. This process is repeated to achieve the final size. There are some risks of irritation to the skin above the implant if this process is pushed too fast, as with all stretching.

  • Corset Piercings

One of the newest trends in body modification comes in the form of corset piercings. They are a series of surface piercings arranged up the back in two vertical columns. The piercing is located in the spot where the eyelets would be if one was wearing a corset. It is a symmetrical piercing with an equal number of holes on each side. As few as four holes can be used (two on each side) up to as many as the expanse of skin will allow.

  • Branding

The Human Branding is, perhaps, the most painful of all body modifications. In full-scale branding, the iron is heated hot enough and applied long enough that the resulting wound is a third degree burn, which destroys the nerve. These third-degree burns never regain sensitivity. It will make a silver scarred area in the shape of the third degree burn, due to destruction of the entire dermis layer of the skin. The surrounding skin will eventually fill in areas that haven’t been severely damaged, which takes years.

  • Body Suspension

Body suspension is the act of suspending the human body via temporary piercings made just before the suspension process. The body is then raised either partially or completely from the ground by especially modified fishing hooks.

  • Tongue bifurcation

One of the newest body modifications to hit the scene is tongue splitting, or tongue bifurcation. The process involves literally cutting the tongue in half directly down the center. Once the tongue is split it is possible to move both sections independently of one another.

  • Pointy Ears

New York plastic surgoen Dr. Lajos Nagy created a surgical procedure to make human ears pointed, like a mythological creature. According to the doc, “ears becoming pointed as a result of plastic surgery not only enhance the attractiveness of the face, but also improve the experience of listening to music.

NOTE: our reader Allie wrote us explaining the procedure itself is possible, but Dr. Nagy’s services are a hoax.

Early Symptoms Of Carpal Tunnel

Posted by admin | No Comments

With computers playing a massive role in the bulk of work environments these days, carpal tunnel syndrome has become a common complaint at surgeries. Although carpal tunnel could come from various jobs, it is especially found inside people who keep their bodies in a single position and partake in repetitive motions inside long time periods, like typing. However, carpal tunnel may be evaded with several straightforward defensive measures.

First and most important, you have to watch out for symptoms which might indicate that you could be getting, if not already have, carpal tunnel syndrome. Naturally, only doctors may be able to diagnose this problem through series of tests ; However, if you experience burning and pain in your wrists or hands, this is going to be a clue that there’s something incorrect. This pain might radiate up into your arms and shoulders. To stop this, it might be counseled to move differently to change the incessant monotony of your motions.

Be terribly mindful of your total posture and how your personal desk is essentially set up. Is the monitor below or at eye level? Are your mouse and keyboard comfortable to use? Does your chair in the office support you? These would be many things you want to take under consideration in order to stop you from feeling discomfort and discomfort. Make use of wrist rests for your mouse and keyboard to keep both of your wrists in the right typing positions. Ensure that your chair at work is at the perfect height for arm support whenever you work.

A couple of straightforward exercises could be done as you stand at the office or sit at the desk to help stop any discomfort from carpal tunnel syndrome. Put your hands flat against a wall. Turn your head to the other direction to twist your shoulder blades inward and stretch your forearm and wrist. Put your hands together in front of you in a praying motion to stretch your hands’ heels downward, so that they are evenly positioned with your wrists. After that, move your arms to the right and to the left while keeping this position to help work your forearms’ muscles. As your forearms get support from your desk, put your hands into fists and roll both of your wrists to the right and left without making your forearms move. Repeat this motion after taking your arms up off your desk. Do this several times before putting your fingertips on your desk’s edge. Place your hands along your desk’s edge. Such exercises can help you in stretching your wrists. Ultimately, shake your arms out and roll the shoulders to say goodbye to residual stress. If these exercises happen to hurt you, you may want to think about getting in contact with your doctor.

Always keep in mind to do deep breathing exercise each time, drink lots of water and take five every once in a while. Stress can exacerbate each symptom;  it would be essential to learn how to deal with stress.
