In order to get back in the mood, Dr. Maureen Whelihan suggests that men take over women's household responsibilites two days out of the wee. Sounds good to us!

Erectile dysfunction spells trouble for a man's heart. It could mean diabetes, heart problems or metabolic syndrome.

What counts as adultery? For one woman in England the answer is virtual sex. The staff at Wowowow delves into the case of Amy Pollard who is leaving her husband of three years after discovering he was having an online affair in Second Life. The twist?

There is literally nothing to lose by logging onto PlentyofFish.com, a 100%-free, online dating site that draws plenty (78,250 on a Friday afternoon, to be exact) of fish. It takes less that ten minutes to set up a profile, which is appropriately string-bare–after all, no one said quality comes free! What does come for free is access to thousands upon thousands of singles people, including instant message and e-mail privileges. Users can sift through profiles using basic search options. Users can exclude members they've already viewed and still get a large pool of eligible profiles. For match-making help, users can take a Chemistry Predictor quiz comprised of 48 seemingly-minute questions about self-confidence, family orientation, self-control, openness and easygoingness. PlentyofFish uses the results–which are pretty general so don't expect any real breakthroughs–to make matches on your behalf. There is also a 100-question Relationship Needs Assessment Test, which can't hurt if you've got the time!
Blogger Crush: Madatoms.com Here's a site that welcomes nobody's who want to become somebody's. Madatoms.com welcomes writers, artists, filmmakers and actors to contribute to their fresh, creative, and unabashedly hilarious work to their website. Each story features contemporary art and every author writes original content for the different columns. The site is set up very simply: there are separate sections for writers, artists, filmmakers and actors, and almost every writer and artist has their own bio, in which they plug their website or attempt to expose viewers to their unique online personas. By clicking on a specific writer, you are able to see all of the pieces they have written and which columns they are featured in. The same goes for the artists. Clicking on their name or bio brings you to their art and shows you where it has been featured. As for the filmmaker section, there is only one filmmaker on the website so far. There is also only one video which he has created and the two actors on the site are featured in this short, yet outrageously funny video. We cannot wait to see what's to come for the videos on this site. There are a total of 15 columns (pretty impressive, huh?) under the content section on the site. "Judging a Book By Its Cover" and "Trailer Trash" are two review columns. "Judging a Book" is, quite clearly, a column for book reviews and "Trailer Trash" includes negative reviews on movie trailers. Hence the trash. Hence it!
On November 20th, Australia's first ever Sex party was officially launched. The Sex party hopes to rally against Australia's initiative to add a national Internet filter that would block pornography and a decrease sex education. Sex party members say the Internet filter is a clear indication Australia is run by politicians who are prudish and can't talk about sex without giggling.
A recent Jezebel post about "One Ball Wonders" like Lance Armstrong and Tom Green made me remember a story: About two years ago, when I was working as a factchecker at Radar magazine, one of my oldest friends from back home IMed me to share some terrible news. He had cancer, testicular cancer, and he was going to have surgery to take one of his testicles out. In the weeks that followed, I tried to be as supportive as I could. My friend volleyed back and forth from not wanting to talk about it at all, to asking me if I still thought women would still want to hook up with him if he only had one testicle. Honestly, I discovered it's difficult to find the right words to say in this situation. Of course, since he's one of my oldest friends, I wanted to be totally honest: any woman worth his time wouldn't give a shit, but some women might find only one ball, and the very fact he was a cancer survivor, off-putting. Nevertheless, I'm sure I pointed out that Lance Armstrong still seem to score with women.
