FOX's More To Love, which premiers tomorrow (July 28th), follows the typical reality T.V. dating show formula, except with one main difference: there's an added layer of vulnerability to the contestants, and dare-to-say-it a different shade of neurosis in these bachelorettes, which range in ages from 21 to 37 years and in weight from 180 to 270 pounds.

In a recent study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, Italian researchers claim that levels of sexual desire are higher in women who prefer red wine as opposed to those who favor other alcoholic beverages.
Maybe the only reason women like Kate Gosselin treat their men like little kids is because their men act like little kids. Maybe if these men started behaving like men, their women would see them as men. Maybe, as Oprah has said multiple times, we teach people how to treat us. Askmen thinks so. And in a new article entitled, "Reverse Emasculating Trends," they tell their readers that if they want to stop being emasculated by their women, they'd better stop asking for it.
Often, a woman's birth control choice is based on word-of-mouth from friends (which pill relieved monster cramps; which procedure was covered by insurance), familiar routines unchanged since college (same old pink pill case) or even TV commercials (seen the ones that make taking birth control look like boarding a Caribbean cruise?).
