A few years back I was introduced to Thomas Campbell's "My Big Toe." In it, he discusses how fractals exist at every level of reality. The most basic fractal is evolution, which he colorfully states as "grow or die." I've been thinking of the fractals that exist in bonding. I've come to realize that if I want to experience a deeper bond with my wife, I need to bond with everything. My morning coffee, the jazz music that I listen to on Pandora, the sun coming through the leaves, the work that I do, and even the movements of my body through physical space.

A phenomenon dubbed "pornosexuality" has emerged where people prefer online porn to sex with real people, it has been claimed.
The term describes someone whose "sexual orientation is linked solely to porn", according to Medical Daily.
One self-identified pornosexual quoted by the website said: "If I had to choose to have one or the other for the rest of my life, I would choose porn over real sex any day."

it's a documentary on Amazon Prime and it is CREEPY as all get-out but proabbly well worth seeing.

Ugh. Includes pay-for-cuddles, the creepist lifesize dolls-as-girlfriends, supposed love gurus and experts who are clueless, and much more.

Falling in love is like being 'high' on drugs: Meeting somebody special activates the same brain cells as illegal substances
The second is from a team in China.
More masturbation correlates with greater unhappiness.
More happiness in a relationship correlates with less masturbation.
And big surprise, LOL (irony here), if people have a lot of partner sex, they tend to masturbate very little.
Touch has been found to entail positive effects in the person receiving it, whereas effects on the person giving touch have previously been unexplored. We investigated whether stroking the partner also is a pleasant experience for the person performing it, and whether it has similar effects on well-being and autonomic nervous function as being stroked or stroking oneself. Furthermore, we compared the hedonic and autonomic nervous effects of stroking the partner and self-stroking.
