[2007-12-27] Long-term relationships challenge our capacity to maintain the vitality and energy of our feelings.
It is the subject of songs and the theme of movies; it has created an industry in fiction writing, the romance novel. The beginning of love is wonderful. But the test of love comes over time, the time beyond the courtship and honeymoon phase. THE CHALLENGE The challenge goes beyond simply getting along. There are lots of couples who get along but lack spark in the actual relationship. Some of these couples have excluded anything controversial from their relationship in an effort to keep the peace. It is a peace that comes with a price. Not being truly open because it may "stir things up" is [...]

[2007-12-15] Polygamy is to marriage what the free market is to the economy. Which can only mean one thing: If you oppose legalizing polygamy, well, you are a Communist.
Polygamy -- a topic you can't avoid these days (e.g., Warren Jeffs, BigLove, Mitt Romney) -- is easy to disparage. But frankly the antipolygamyarguments just don't seem convincing. Let's run through them:Polygamists marry underage women. True, some do. But these are thefundamentalist megalomaniacs. Polygamy isn't any more inherently oppressiveto women than monogamous male-female marriage. Should we abolish boozebecause Lindsay Lohan can't hold her Jack Daniel's?If you legalize polygamy, it's a slippery slope, and next you'll have tolegalize men marrying goats. Not really. Two adult women who a [...]
[2007-12-15] It seems well-read women are more comfortable in bed than men — the more educated a female is, the better she sleeps at night. In case of males, it's just the reverse.

Conversely, the better educated a man is, the less likely he is to get a good night's sleep, the ScienceDaily said. "Globally, women are up to twice as likely to be insomniac as men. But, while higher educational attainment improves women's night time sleep quality, it has the opposite effect on men," the experts said. The researchers came to the conclusion after analysing data from a surv [...]

Close-ups of dangling genitalia are the lingua franca of theInternet and it's quite amazing how many peopl [...]
