Why Men Want Sex and Women Want Love

by Elena Solomon

Men are frustrated with women because they never want sex.
Women are frustrated with men because they always want sex.

Women blame men they don’t know how to love.
Men blame women that they only talk about love but don’t want to make it.

Whether you are a man or a woman, reading this article can change your life - finally, you will be able to get rid of your frustrations about the opposite gender.

The reason humans want sex is due to the hormone testosterone, which is predominantly male hormone. A normal male’s body produces 20 times more of this hormone than a female’s.

In other words, a male feels the same way after one day without sex as a female after 20 days without sex. A male that has not had sex in 20 days feels the same way as a female after more than a year without sex.

Knowing this simple difference, you can already understand the pain of the opposite gender. It’s NOT their fault: they are made this way! It’s in our genes! This is the reason why men are men and women are women.

Men and women are DIFFERENT.
Not better or worse, just different.

A man can father a child every time he has sex, and a woman can only mother a child every two years or so. This means, a woman HAS TO be picky about who she allows to have sex with her.

For generations women were paying too high a price for making a wrong choice. Women that have chosen men with bad genes had a weaker offspring and their children struggled to survive. Women that have chosen men with good genes had a stronger offspring and their children survived disproportionally. Those children were carrying their picky mother’s genes and this is why those female genes were passed to us.

On the other hand, men never had adverse consequences of making a wrong choice. The more children they produced, the higher was their chance to pass their genes to future generations, as some of them would certainly survive. While men were determined to seek better genes too, they had to grab all chances to procreate coming their way to ensure their genes would be passed forward. The men that ONLY stuck with one woman (even a high quality woman) were losing genetically to the men that used all of their opportunities and had many more children that survived. Those children were carrying their father’s promiscuous genes, and this is why those male genes were passed to us.

By Nature men are made to seek as much sex as they can get, so they can spread their seed wider.

By Nature women are made to seek as many admirers as they can get, so they can make a better choice and get the best seed.

Men seek quantity - women seek quality.

This is why men seek sex and women seek love.

Love is the proof that a woman needs to have some assurance that the man will stick around and help her with the upbringing of the offspring. For a woman, sex is the culmination of her emotional commitment to a man.

For a man, sex is a physical act that eases the testosterone pressure he experiences constantly. Only after this tension has gone, can a man feel love towards a woman. This is why it often happens that men disappear after they got what they wanted: it wasn’t love; it was the testosterone pressure. Sex for men is the reality check of their passion.

This is why having sex early in the relationship is hazardous for women: the man has not had the time to develop any romantic feelings for her. He needs time to develop those feelings, and the only way to do it is through keeping the sexual tension going for as long as practicable. Sex must be attainable, nearly possible - but not quite. When the sexual tension is at its peak, its release is mind-blowing - and once is never enough, which lays a proper foundation for a future relationship – and love.

Men fall in love through sex; women fall in sex through love.

All of this happens on the unconscious level - we do NOT realize what’s going on.

But the reason why you are here today and alive is because each and every of your ancestors, men and women, acted true to their instincts and managed to attract at least one sexual partner and produce an offspring.

So, there is no need to be bitter about men wanting sex and women wanting love. Those two are the necessary pieces of the puzzle called Survival Of The Species.

And you’ll be better off understanding what the other gender is going through and giving them exactly what they want: a mind-blowing sex or exhilarating love.

Go get ‘em! :-)

Stress could cause cancer claim scientists

Scientists have discovered that everyday emotional stress is a trigger for the growth of tumours.

They discovered that any sort of trauma, emotional or physical, can act as a "pathway" between cancerous mutations bringing them together in a potentially deadly mix.

The findings, published in Nature, seemed to show for the first time that the conditions for developing the disease can be affected by your emotional environment including every day work and family stress.

Professor Tian Xu, a geneticist at Yale University who led the study, said: "A lot of different conditions can trigger stress signaling - physical stress, emotional stress, infections, inflammation – all these things.

"Reducing stress or avoiding stress conditions is always good advice."

Until now, scientists believed more than one cancer-causing mutation needed to take place in a single cell in order for tumours to grow.

But Prof Xu and colleagues at Yale University, working with fruit flies, showed mutations can promote cancer even when they are located in different cells. This is because stress opens up "pathways" between them.

He said: "The bad news is that it is much easier for a tissue to accumulate mutations in different cells than in the same cell."

Having sex twice a week reduces 50% heart attack

It shows men who indulge in regular lovemaking are up to 45 per cent less likely to develop life-threatening heart conditions than men who have sex once a month or less.

The study, of over 1,000 men, shows sex appears to have a protective effect on the male heart but did not examine whether women benefit too.

Every year, around 270,000 people in Britain suffer a heart attack, and coronary disease remains Britains biggest killer.

Although sex has long been regarded as good for physical and mental health, there has been little scientific evidence to show the full benefits that frequent intercourse can have on major illnesses such as heart disease.

In the latest study, scientists at the New England Research Institute in Massachusetts, tracked the sexual activity of men aged between 40 and 70 who were taking part in a long-term project called the Massachusetts Male Ageing Study, which began back in 1987.

At regular points over a 16-year period, each man was quizzed on how often they had sex and then checked for signs of heart disease.

Researchers took into account other risk factors, such as their age, weight, blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

The results, published in the American Journal of Cardiology, showed men who made love at least twice a week were much less likely to have heart disease than those whose sexual encounters were limited to once a month or less.

In a report on their findings, researchers said the benefits of sex could be due to both the physical and emotional effects on the body.

Men with the desire for frequent sexual activity and who are able to engage in it are likely to be healthier.

But sex in some forms has a physical activity component that might directly serve to protect cardiovascular health.

Also, men who have frequent sex might be more likely to be in a supportive intimate relationship and this might improve health through stress reduction and social support.

An earlier study at the National Cancer Institute in the US showed men who ejaculated through sex or masturbation at least five times a week were much less likely to get prostate cancer.

And sex once or twice a week in winter can boost the immune system and reduce the chances of catching colds and flu, according to researchers at Wilkes University, Pennsylvania.

They found it boosted levels of immunoglobulin A or IGA which binds to organisms that invade the body and then activates the immune system to destroy them.

Regular sex can even boost a woman’s sense of smell by triggering the release of a hormone called prolactin, according to scientists at Calgary University in Canada.

This may be a mechanism to help mums bond with their new babies.

Skin Cancer from sunbed tanning

Sunbeds could be banned within months for under-18s.
After a lengthy period of dithering, Health Secretary Andy Burnham will back tough measures to protect 'tanorexic' teenagers.
Unstaffed, coin-operated tanning booths, which are used by children as young as 11, would also be outlawed.

The move follows a sharp rise in skin cancer deaths among young women using sunbeds.
A ban has already come into force in Scotland. Wales has announced it will follow suit.
But the Department of Health failed to act even after the World Health Organisation in the summer reclassified sunbeds as being as carcinogenic as cigarettes, arsenic and asbestos.

Last year, a judge called for measures to stop the 'reckless' use of sunbeds after 14-year-old Kirsty McRae suffered 70 per cent burns after using a sunbed in an unmanned salon.
She put £1 into the coin-operated sunbed at the walk-in Lextan salon in Barry, Vale of Glamorgan, owned by James Hadley, 25.
After four minutes the schoolgirl paid an extra £3 for 15 more minutes because she felt she wasn't tanned enough.
Magistrates heard the teenager was rushed to hospital four hours later suffering from horrific burns and was put on a drip.
Hadley was prosecuted under health and safety laws with the judge branding the operation of an unmanned salon 'reckless'.

World first sex robot

On Saturday we wrote about Roxxxy, the "world's first sex robot." The post struck a chord with readers, to say the least, hitting the sweet spot between the technology of CES and the "adult entertainment" of AVN. And, let's face it, thanks to countless science fiction stories, this sort of, um, device, has likely been atop the wishlist of many of the world's geeks, for a very long time.

I attended TrueCompanion's presentation at AVN's mainstage on Saturday, in which Roxxxy's creator spoke about the potential future for his sex robot, discusses pricing, and explains its connection to the gay community.

Check out a brief video of that event, after the jump--but be warned, while there's no nudity or profanity in it, it's still a video about a sex robot shot on the floor of the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo, and therefore may not be safe for work--unless, of course, you work at some kind of sex robot factory. If that's the case, enjoy, and maybe invite your boss in to watch it with you.

Cancer causing detergents

  1. On July 24th, 2008, the University of Washington did a study on leading detergents.

    What they found is that 99% of laundry detergents released cancer causing chemicals that are legally hazardous and toxic by the EPA(Environmental Protection Agency)

    Most of them were NOT on the label. That's the scary part.

    Many detergent companies use top-secret formulas that contain the very same chemicals listed as hazardous. They call it something else, yet it's still the same toxic stuff.
  2. The most deadly of all these chemicals is something called nonylphenol ethoxylate. I know, it's a mouth-full! I can't even spell it it... and... this chemical is so toxic...
  3. It's BANNED in Canada, and in ALL of Europe! Yet the United States continues its use.
  4. It's is a major ingredient in pesticides. It's used to KILL.
  5. It is extremely harmful to your body because it imitates the hormone 'estrogen'
  6. When these artificial hormone like chemicals get into your blood stream through your skin, they start to cause serious damage to your body.
  7. The Journal of Pesticide Reform shows strong evidence that these chemicals cause severe damage to heart and muscle function.
  8. Damage to your sex & reproductive system
  9. Severely reduced sperm counts in men.
  10. Abnormal breast development in infant girls.
  11. Most people ask: "I've been using laundry detergent all my life, what's the big deal?"
  12. Just like lead poisoning, the effects of these chemicals usually are not instant, they gradually eat away at your health over time, because they are absorbed through your skin.
  13. Your skin is like a sponge. The chemicals in laundry detergent end up on your clothes, they are never rinsed completely. As you wear them on your body, the chemicals soak into your skin.
  14. Have you ever had dry, itchy, or irritable skin in area where you wear clothes? Do you ever get headaches when cleaning?
  15. These may the initial 'mild' symptoms of these toxins in your body. Over time this toxic gunk can build up in your body and begin to wreak havoc on your immune system and over-all health.
  16. I am not saying these chemicals are the main cause of disease... However, companies shouldn't have the right to put toxic chemicals into something you put on your skin, and on your children, without you knowing about it.
  17. Over the past 30 years skin-cancer rates have increased dramatically, and the cancer rate in America is now 1 in 3. Yes... one in three people get cancer. It used to be just 1 in 5 not long ago!

    I personally know over a dozen people who have cancer, have died of cancer, or have had cancer ...including my grandfather who passed away last year. How many do you know?

    While there's no magic pill to cure the serious illnesses rampant today, removing these toxic chemicals,from your life is definitely a step in the right direction, because...

Risk of dying from heart disease 'rises every hour you watch TV'

Nugget : Every hour spent watching TV each day increases the risk of dying from heart disease by almost a fifth, say scientists

Every hour spent watching TV each day increases the risk of dying from heart disease by almost a fifth, say scientists.
TV addicts were warned their lifestyle also increased the risk of death from other causes including cancer and the chances of dying early from heart attacks and strokes.
Researchers in Australia monitored 8,800 adults for six years to see what impact watching TV had on their long term health.

During the follow-up period there were 284 deaths, 87 due to cardiovascular, or heart and artery disease, and 125 from cancer.
They found that each hour spent per day in front of the television increased the risk of heart disease-related death by 18 per cent.

It also raised the risk of death from all causes by 11 per cent and from cancer by 9 per cent.
And compared with those watching less than two hours of TV, those who viewed more than four hours a day were 80 per cent more likely to die for reasons linked to heart and artery disease.
The scientists warned it was not only telly addicts whose lazy lifestyles put them in danger.

Any prolonged sedentary behaviour, such as sitting at an office desk or in front of a computer, posed similar risks.
It also made no difference whether or not a viewer was overweight or obese.
'Even if someone has a healthy body weight, sitting for long periods of time still has an unhealthy influence on their blood sugar and blood fats,' said lead researcher Professor David Dunstan, from the Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute in Victoria, Australia.
The average amount of TV watched each day is three hours in both Australia and the UK.

Lives saving Brain-cooling motorcycle helmet

Nuggets :

  • The ThermaHelm acts like an instant ice pack after a sudden impact
  • The basic helmet will cost £299. A more expensive version will offer a camera and GPS
  • Inventor and motorcycling enthusiast Jullian Preston-Powers was inspired after a basketball injury
  • An extraordinary new 'brain-cooling' motorcycle helmet could save thousands of lives each year.
    Called the ThermaHelm, the incredible piece of equipment comes with an inbuilt device that acts like an instant ice pack after a sudden impact.
    By cooling the brain it is thought the carbon fibre helmet can reduce the risk of long-term brain damage and save lives.

    The British creators will launch the £299 helmet in May this year.
    Inventor and motorcycling enthusiast Jullian Preston-Powers said he has had an incredible response to the new design.
    Mr Preston-Powers, 44, said: 'We've had a great reaction. People think it's a great idea and have said they can't believe no-one has thought of this before.
    'Companies all over the world are banging down our doors to get hold of it when it's launched this year.'

Mr Preston-Powers. from Brighton, said he had an 'eureka' moment after sustaining an injury during a game of basketball.
He said: 'I had been playing basketball with a friend and I had smashed my elbow on his head. Someone handed us both ice-packs for our injuries and it was so cold I couldn't hold it for very long.

Inventor and motorcycling enthusiast Jullian Preston-Powers was inspired after a basketball injury
'So I placed it in my friend's motorcycle helmet and he accidentally put it on while the pack was inside.
'He was surprised by how good it felt and that's when I had that 'eureka' moment'.'
After two years of developing the idea at the Sussex Innovation Centre, in Brighton, it is now set to hit the shelves this year.

The helmet contains two lightweight chemical packs, which are built into the helmet lining.
One pack contains water, the other ammonium nitrate. A sudden impact causes the two to mix and trigger a 'cooling' reaction.

This reaction lasts up to 45 minutes, stabilising the temperature of the brain and improving the crash victim's chances of survival.

Mr Preston-Powers said: 'This is a hugely exciting innovation that has the potential to save thousands of lives around the world every year.'
Development teams are currently looking into to further uses for the 'brain-cooling' device.
A £499 version of the ThermaHelm - which includes video cameras, GPS and bluetooth, is in the pipeline for July this year.
Mr Preston-Powers also expects to see the technology included in helmets for the military in the near future.

Chopstick stuck in toddler's brain

Doctors in China are hopeful a toddler will not suffer any long-term problems after successfully removing a chopstick that was stuck in his brain.

The eating utensil went up 14-month-old Li Jingchao's nose when he fell over while playing at home in eastern Shandong province in late December.
Local doctors felt they would not perform the delicate operation safely because they lacked the right equipment, according to state media.
As a result, Li's parents drove 10 hours north to Beijing's Bo Ai Hospital.
By the time they arrived, the tot was suffering a high fever and an irregular heartbeat.
"We were fully prepared to bear the worst results when we started the surgery," said hospital spokesman Chen Yawei.
Neurosurgeons found the chopstick was lodged four millimetres into Li's brain and feared removing it may cause internal bleeding - possibly causing paralysis or even death.

"We were prepared to cut open his head immediately to stop the bleeding from his brain if blood spurted from his nose just when the chopstick was pulled out," Mr Chen said.
"But the surgeon's skill was fully realised.
"Doctor Sun Wei, an expert on neurosurgery, has successfully treated four cases like this.
"The parents travelled ... to this hospital because the surgeon is famous for his skill in handling this kind of surgery."
The operation proved successful, with Li now being treated with anti-inflammatory medication because the chopstick was dirty and caused an infection in his brain.
Mr Chen added: "After the operation, we are rather optimistic about the child's situation and he should be able to leave the hospital in about a week."

Juice can be as bad as Cola

(Nugget: some fruit juices and carbonated soft drinks are as highly acidic as pH 3.4.
The tooth surface is composed of calcium salts that are highly vulnerable to acidic attack.)

Caroline Daniels had always prided herself on the fact she ate a healthy diet, exercised regularly and avoided too much alcohol. On nights out with friends, she’d sip on Coke, rather than wine, and every day she drank fruit juice rather than teas and coffees.

But then, two years ago, she started suffering agonising pains in her teeth.

‘Just a sip of cold orange juice would send a sharp pain through my teeth and up towards my gums,’ says the 54-year-old assistant shop manager from Epsom, Surrey.

‘And cold fizzy drinks were just as bad. The pain was enough to make me wince or even gasp out loud. It got to the point where I’d leave my drink untouched.’

The sugar and acid in the juices had attacked the enamel of my teeth, and the fizzy drinks would not have helped. I was amazed, because I’d thought I was being so healthy.’

What’s more, Caroline was making the situation worse by brushing her teeth immediately after drinking. This is because the enamel is softened for up to an hour after drinking acidic juices, making it vulnerable to aggressive brushing.

(Extra : There are several causes of erosion - including acid reflux, when natural acids in the stomach flow up the mouth, sometimes eroding the back teeth, and over-brushing with abrasive toothpastes.

However, it is thought that the main culprit is acids in our diet, found in fruit juices and fizzy drinks. Research in the U.S., published last year, found that daily exposure to fruit juice caused even more damage to tooth enamel than some of the controversial home whitening treatments.)

Solutions : The impact of acidic drinks can be minimised by ensuring they are only drunk with meals - drink still water at other times. And when you do have acidic drinks, they are best drunk through a straw to minimise the contact with teeth.’

Sugar-free chewing gum, which increases the flow of saliva, can also help, as can finishing a meal with milk or cheese, which neutralises acid.

For many, the warnings come too late - and treating the problem once it has occurred is difficult. Tooth erosion is more difficult to treat than tooth decay because it affects the entire surface of a tooth, rather than causing just a cavity.

Toothpastes for sensitive teeth can help. These work by coating the teeth, minimising sensitivity.

Bigger Buttock link to lesser heart disease,diabetes and obesity

When a woman asks: 'Does my bum look big in this?' she should hope the answer is yes, according to health experts.
That's because having a big bottom is good for your health - or at least better than having a big tummy.
Studies show that having a generous rear end and thighs, rather than a pot belly, cuts levels of 'bad' cholesterol and raises levels of the 'good' cholesterol that protect against hardening of the arteries.
It also cuts the risk of diabetes, a review in the International Journal of Obesity reports. The findings add to a welter of research on the benefits of having a pear-shaped body.

The Oxford University researchers gathered together various studies on the health benefits of lower body, or ' gluteofemoral' fat, then tried to work out why it is better for us than fat stored around the middle.

Ideas include it acting as a 'buffer', mopping up fats which could have dangerous effects elsewhere in the body. It may also make higher levels of hormones known to affect appetite and weight.

Finally, it breaks down more slowly than belly fat. While this makes it harder to shift, it also means it produces fewer chemicals called inflammatory cytokines which have been linked to heart disease, diabetes and obesity.
Researcher Konstantinos Manolopoulos said: 'The fat around our thighs and hips is different to the fat we accumulate around our tummy.

'There is "good" fat and "bad" fat - just like there is good and bad cholesterol.

The cells in lower body fat work differently from the cells in upper body fat.'
The findings tie in with studies showing that the ratio of a person's waist to their hips is a better predictor of heart disease than BMI, the GPs' rule of thumb for judging healthy weights.
In future, drugs that alter the way fat is stored around the body could be used to combat heart and other diseases.

Fotini Rozakeas of the British Heart Foundation said: 'This research helps us better to understand how fat acts in the body in order to develop new approaches in reducing heart and circulatory disease.

'If you are overweight, obese, or if your waist size has increased, it is important to make changes to your lifestyle, such as eating a healthy diet and doing regular physical activity, to reduce your risk of heart health problems.'

Women remove Breast in case of cancer , only to find out they are just LUMPS

Nuggets : Some 125 women are diagnosed with breast cancer every day in the UK and the disease claims 12,000 victims a year.

One in nine diagnoses occurs in women with a family history of the disease.

Preventative mastectomies can reduce the chance of developing breast cancer by 90 per cent.

When Sue Kershaw was told she ran a high risk of contracting breast cancer, she decided to take no chances.

She opted for a preventative operation to have both breasts removed, even though regular scans over 12 years had always given her the all-clear.

Confirmation that the move had saved her life came immediately.

As 36-year-old Mrs Kershaw was recovering from the surgery, doctors broke the stunning news that they had found a one-inch lump of pre-cancerous cells in the removed tissue.

The operation was life-changing. It meant I could live my life without fear of getting breast cancer – and it soon proved to be a very wise decision.'

Mrs Kershaw has now been given the all-clear for the disease, although she still has precautionary check-ups.

Her operation, which lasted 12 hours, involved both breast removal and reconstruction.

Sunil Thomas, the surgeon who operated on her at Selly Oak Hospital, in Birmingham, in March last year, said: 'The preventative mastectomy operation is rare and it takes a lot of thought and strength to make the decision when there is nothing wrong with the breasts of the patient.

'However, the risks involving the BRCA gene are significant and many women feel the surgery can give them the peace of mind they need.

'Sue is a very resilient and strong woman who made a proactive decision to reduce the risks of her getting breast cancer.

'She had what is called a skinsparing mastectomy.

'The big advantage of this procedure is that, because there isn't cancer present in the skin of the breast, we only have to remove the breast tissue.'

A 20cent lozenge daily fight off all Cold and Flu Bugs

A lozenge designed to fight off all cold and flu bugs has been created by scientists.

It would be taken once a day before breakfast and would cost only 20p a day. The lozenge could be sold over-the-counter in as little as two years.

It would prime the immune system to attack every cold and flu bug including 'normal' winter flu, swine flu and bird flu.

The lozenge, which tastes like a sweet and dissolves in the mouth, could be used to clear up sniffles in healthy people and prevent life-threatening infections in the elderly and in asthma and cystic fibrosis sufferers.

It has already been tested on people and the first results are due within weeks.

Researcher Professor Manfred Beilharz said: 'This is the golden fleece everyone has been looking for.'

The Veldona lozenge contains tiny amounts of interferon alpha, which was nicknamed the 'Crown jewel' of virology when it was discovered 50 years ago.

Interferon alpha is a protective protein that the body naturally makes when attacked by a virus. When the lozenge dissolves in the mouth, the protein is released and the immune system is tricked into thinking there is a bug nearby and gets ready for a fight.

Professor Beilharz, who has devoted 15 years to the research, said: 'The outposts of the immune system say, "Hey, we've got a virus, let's gear up and get ready for it before the infection spreads too far."'

The professor has already shown that very low doses of the protein can save the lives of mice exposed to an otherwise lethal cocktail of the flu virus.

Tamiflu, which has been stockpiled by governments around the world to treat swine and bird flus, costs up to £5 a tablet. The lozenges could cost as little as 20p each, or £6 a month.

Professor Beilharz said: 'This medicine is quite cheap to manufacture and very low dosage and doesn't seem to have any side-effects of any significance.'

Unlike the flu vaccine, which has to be frequently reformulated to fight whichever strains of the bug are circulating, it would be a 'one-size-fits all' drug.

This is because interferon alpha primes the immune system to fight a range of viruses, including all cold and flu bugs.

Software that spots Early signs of Cancers and Diseases

GPs will be given computer software to help spot the early signs of cancer, it emerged yesterday.

Doctors will use a new programme to give patients their percentage chance of having cancer based on their including age, weight and symptoms such as bleeding or constant tiredness.

Patients calculated to be at high risk of cancer developing would be referred for urgent tests in hospital within two weeks.

The plan was unveiled by Professor Mike Richards, the Govenment's cancer czar, in a bid to prevent the 10,000 unnecessary deaths each year caused by late diagnosis.

Every GP in England could be using the software within five years, he said.

Cancer is the UK's biggest killer after heart disease and strokes and kills more than 150,000 people every year, around half of those diagnosed.

England is the first country to use the tool, as it has a lower rate of early cancer diagnosis than many European countries, Professor Richards added.

GPs spot cancer in 90 per cent of patients with screening picking up the other ten per cent.

Although some patients do not seek help in time, many cancers become fatal because they are not diagnosed by doctors at an early stage. There are more than 200 forms of cancer and the early stages can be similar to the symptoms of other conditions.
