According to the University At Buffalo's website, Dr. Gregory Homish has been studying the behavior and satisfaction of couples for a decade. He has come to the conclusion that couples with similar vices (alcohol and cigarettes in this case) and levels of engagement in said vices are likely to be more content with their relationship.
Good sex is dependent on size and positive thinking—rather than foreplay, a new study reveals.
One-third of women surveyed in a new study said they are more likely to climax if the man had a longer than average "member," which we suppose makes sense. Further analysis of the results proved that penis size and duration of sexytime all played important factors. But suspiciously absent from the list? Foreplay!
How to spot a liar: four sure-fire signals that you haven't been using.
Most of us think we know the telltale signs of a liar—shifty eyes, sweating, a long, winding story that seems highly improbable. In reality, however, there is not one behavior all liars exhibit and some behaviors we associate with lying could mean something else entirely. Because of this, few people are very good at spotting liars. But deciphering a liar from a truth-teller is not completely hopeless; it just isn't as easy as is seems.

Don't think all those tagged photos, flirty wall posts and ominous status updates go unnoticed.

The odds aren't in our favor, says study. But why?
I've been married all of 11 days now and, one cliché I will be able to avoid, though, is the terrible mother-in-law/daughter-in-law relationship so many women have. My own mother-in-law passed away long before I got a chance to meet her, and while I'd love to think we would have had a wonderful relationship—if her sons are any indication, she was a terrific woman and I hope she would have approved of me—the odds, apparently, aren't in our favor.
Yet another study proves men and women approach casual sex differently.
Achim Schützwohl and his research team of Brunel University in London rounded up groups of American, Italian and German men and women for a little game of "who would you (hypothetically) screw" and found out men are much more likely to have a one nighter with someone they found unattractive.
The APA says attempts to convert homosexuals aren't effective and may hurt people.
Remember a while back when the crazy church in Connecticut exorcised a gay demon from a teen, and then put a video on it online and then members were surprised when people weren't fans of the exorcism?
Well, apparently the also need to read the latest research from the American Psychological Association, CNN reports. Yes, the group that considered homosexuality a mental illness until the '70s, just released a massive 138-page report, which investigated 87 peer reviewed studies, and found that conversion therapy for gays and lesbians is not only ineffective, but also has potential to harm the individual.
Research suggests married people are healthier. Without death and divorce, that is.
Based on data from more than 9,100 Americans age 50 and older who took part in a national health survey in 1992, those who were married reported feeling healthier than those who never married. However, recently divorced or widowed responders were on average 20% more sickly than the lifelong bachelors of the group.
Plus, 4 red wine recipes for increasing your libido.
Apparently, red red wine does make one feel so fine and in more ways than a mellow '80s reggae hit would have you believe.
