Researchers find people who meet friends and family at least three times a week far less like to have depression than those who have only 'virtual contact'

Replacing face-to-face contact with friends and family with emails, text messages and phone calls could double the risk of depression, a major study suggests.

And the world gets a little wierder :-)

Hi y'all,

Here's a website that I thought might interest some of you. It's about the dangers of robotic porn.

See: https://campaignagainstsexrobots.wordpress.com/about/

I asked if they are interested in forming alliances with people who share an interest in sexual health. I'm waiting for an answer. It seems to me that "No" (towards pornography and all forms of sexual violence) is a good first step. "Yes" (to health) is the solution.

Cheers,

"Arnold"

Blessed

I love this community. It will always be dear to my heart. I may not read on here anymore but perhaps I will at some point. It's been a long time and a lot has changed on all levels. My entire life began to change the moment I found this web site. There are many people I remember from 5 and 6 years ago that are dear to me... and that phase of my life was a jump start from an extremely difficult time to now... where I am blessed and know it fully. I went from not relating to anyone to meeting my fiance right here on this site. I found my best friend and a ton of support.

An unconventional and surprising friend came into my life

So, I had to break it off w a girl..

Initially she txted me alot then stopped txting altogether almost. So I confronted her about it and we had a falling out...

Then a few months later I just decided to txt her, see how she was doing. It was literally a one thing led to another night..

She came over and I told her she could stay in the guest room. After a little while she came to my room to snuggle. Then, after a while, we kissed and eventually sex. She was apologizing about the way she treated me before and also saying she hadn't been w anyone else...

flibanserinThe FDA recently approved the sale of Flibanserin, a pink pill intended for women diagnosed with low sex drive; critics have questioned the pill’s effectiveness, while advocates are praising the move toward supporting both men and women with these sexual issues.

Other cycles

I've got a question for the community at large, but in particular Marnia & Gary. As I've learned more about the science behind the passion cycle I've grown curious as to what other activities have their own physiological cycles. I've learned all about the reboot from cannabis and sex subjectively but I've noticed that other activities also have their own cycles. I'm most curious about the relationship between dopamine and exercise.

cricketMONASH U. (AUS) — The production of sperm is more biologically taxing than previously thought, a new study with crickets proves. In research published in the journal PLoS ONE, Damian Dowling of Monash University and Leigh Simmons, a professor at the University of Western Australia, have investigated the trade-off between sperm quality and immunity.
