Men Propose Sooner In Cities With Few Single Women

Decisions, decisions. Anybody who's ventured down the candy aisle at Target knows that the more options you're presented with, the harder it is to pick one of them. Apparently, the same philosophy applies to single men, who put off proposing when they have a surplus of single women to choose from. Forget romantic locales, the best cities for singles are the ones with the most available men.

Too Many Men Think Tight Jeans Ask For Harassment

For as long as we can remember, people have debated whether women who wear provocative outfits are just asking for verbal harassment. While "provocative" is a relative term, it apparently applies to a pair of tight-fitting jeans and a white top. In case you haven't heard, Ines Sainz, a reporter for Mexico's TV Azteca who donned the aforementioned outfit, was allegedly sexually harassed by New York Jets players while she was conducting interviews in the team locker room. 78 percent of the people surveyed on Asylum said that her pants are a "ploy for attention," while only 21 percent have answered that sexual harrassment is unacceptable.

Can Women Trick Themselves Into Better Sex?

A recent study out of The University of Texas at Austin and Baylor College of Medicine studied 200 women with sexual arousal complaints (low sexual desire, low sexual arousal and problems with orgasm). Out of the 200, 50 were administered placebos in place of libido-inducing medicine. Surprisingly, the scientists found that a third of those taking the placebo marked an increase in sexual arousal and all-around better sexual experiences with more stimulation within four weeks. Needless to say, none of the women's partners were counseled on better sex tips.

Is TV Biased Against Female Sexuality?

Zestra Essential Arousal Oils, that all-natural blend of botanical oils meant to prime ladyparts for sex, has had a tough time getting TV advertising space. Not only have Facebook and WebMD refused to run Zestra's ad, most radio stations and TV networks have only OK'd the spot for the late-night graveyard or other non-primetime shifts.

Is there a double standard, or is the ad really just too suggestive? Watch it and tell us.
