Ballerina Nina Sayers (Natalie Portman), central character in Darren Aronofsky's Academy Award-nominated film Black Swan, has clearly disowned a major part of her emotional experience, leading a stunted, child-like existence under the watchful eye of her mother Erica (Barbara Hershey). From the opening scene, staged in the apartment shared by mother and daughter, Director Aronofsky vividly conveys a repressive, infantilized atmosphere.
Okay, okay, hold up. We all know that some of you have actually made love in your office, your bosses' office, in the cubicle next door, and maybe even at the security desk.

Most of these otherwise outgoing women have no idea how to flirt, and many consider it childish and classless.
Sometimes trying to decide if you should tell or not tell can challenge your limits. What if you tell and it hurts your partner but the affair is over? Wouldnt it be better not to tell? What if you tell and they leave you? Frankly, either way will be difficult. Not telling isnt any easier on YOU then telling is. Living with the guilt, shame and the general threat to your own integrity can make you withdraw from your partner. They might see you withdrawing and wonder whats wrong.

The explosion of endurance sports, such as marathons and triathlons, is placing a strain on more marriages these days.
