Lying Not Only Hurts Relationships, But Is Bad For Your Health

You know how you make healthy New Year's resolutions every year like "eat more broccoli" or "actually use my gym membership?" You might even make these resolutions before the new academic year picks up in September, or before your schedule gets more hectic in the fall after the lazy days of August. Well, this year, add a new one to the list: "Don't tell lies."

Science Says More Kissing Could Save Your Marriage

An estimated 40 million Americans are living in sexless marriages, according to Jill Blakeway, clinic director of the YinOva Center and author of "Sex Again: Recharging Your Libido." Somewhat counterintuitively, jumping right back into the sack may not alleviate this problem. Instead, she recommends couples start with the basics to recharge their sex lives: K-I-S-S-I-N-G.

Weird News: Eye Dilation Is The New 'Gaydar'

A new study suggests that a guy's "gayve-away" may have less to do with a limp wrist, a light pair of loafers and a penchant for the color pink — and more to do with eyeball dilation. The study, scientific as it gets, measured the shrinking and growth of guy's pupil when he's exposed to various erotic, visual stimuli (re: porn).

Online Dating Is Not So Awesome, Says New Study

Well, well, well. It looks like online dating isn't as great as it's cracked up to be. And that's not surprising to me. Look around at your friends. How many of them have successfully found love online? Aren't there more horror stories than not?

Friends With An Ex: Is It Always Bad For Your Relationship?

When dealing with a case of the ex, there are generally two schools of thought. First, there's the "We're just friends, it's harmless, I only have eyes for you" group of people, who believe friendships with ex-lovers cause no real harm. On the opposite end are those (myself included) who feel that all ties with ex-boyfriends and girlfriends should be severed in order for new relationships to flourish.

Monkeys & Monogamy: Study Unearths Origins Of Relationships

A new study finds that the evolution of monogamous couples is based on two important aspects: "Weak males with inferior fighting chops and the females who opted to be faithful to them." It's thanks to this behavior (in monkeys, naturally) that we have the modern family as we know it.

Is There A "Sex Fetish Gene"?

I am pretty sure that sometimes a cigar is just a cigar and sometimes we really like being tied up despite having a pleasant, if unremarkable upbringing and having great respect for our friends, lovers and neighbors. Mommy and daddy issues are frequently convenient excuses for "embarrassing" desires we've been taught to believe are "sinful."

14 Things Men Love, According To Science

I had a good chuckle over Made Man's list of Things Science Says Women Love. Apparently we are all suckers for homosexual men who look like our dads and don't smile. Thanks, science! Oh, the image I'm conjuring right now is unsettling. Anyhow … I felt inspired to roundup a few of the things science says men love.

Study Says Men Get Dumber Just By Thinking About Women

It's no secret that the male gender is a bunch of bumbling idiots when it comes to us ladies. Look at us! Our hips, our breasts, the way we smell, the softness of skin (which is completely natural and in no way attributed to mounds of moisturizer) and of course, just the fact that we are the fairer (read: superior) of the genders — we're the complete package.

Creative & Environmentalist On A Mission

Someone once told me, "Lower your expectations of others and you'll be a much happier person." Well that may be true, but it's not part of my makeup. I'm forever hopeful that others will care about and act on the things that I care about. We all have missions we're on and have something we wish to share with others. I thought I'd share with you some of what I'm doing to change the world... at least what I hope to change. Frogs Are Green
