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."
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."

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).
A study conducted on 100 speed-daters found that singles who acted like they were in love on speed dates were more likely to make a genuine connection with the person across the table from them. From physical affection to sharing your dirty secrets, "faking" love with someone, no matter how small the gestures, can land you in real love.
According to a study conducted at the University of Westminster, stronger men make awful boyfriends. The study surveyed 327 straight British men, more than a third of whom were single, and discovered that the more muscular the participant, the more likely he was to have sexist beliefs and hostility toward women.
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?
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.
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.
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."
The winner of a Britain-wide beauty contest sponsored by Lorraine Cosmetics, Colgate has mathematically perfect looks, according to statistics reported by the Daily Mail.

Birth control ain't just for ladies anymore. A form of birth control is now available for men that has shown to be 100 percent effective. All you've got to do is stick a needle in your penis.
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.
Your profiles match. You've moved slowly into a promising online friendship. And now it's time to bring a book and rose to the coffee shop for your first official date. These five scientific tips from the book Brain Trust can help it go smoothly.
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.
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
