Important Study of Same-Sex Couples Seeking Participants

Project SHARe is funded by the National Institutes of Health and is designed to build better understandings of the rewards and challenges of being in a same-sex relationship, as well as how couples’ experiences in their relationships are related to their well-being. Project SHARe is seeking male same-sex couples in the San Francisco Bay areas who are willing to talk with researchers about their experiences since becoming a couple, particularly those who have been together 3 years - 7 years. We have already recruited our full sample of female couples.
The first phase of Project SHARe is taking place now, and the research team is seeking local couples who are interested in sharing their unique experiences of what it’s like to be in a same-sex relationship and their day-to-day lives interacting with family members, friends, co-workers, and others in a variety of situations. Couples will be compensated for their time and participation in the study with $30 cash each.

Women better off without bras ⇢

According to Rouillon, a sports science expert, the lesson to be learned from the preliminary results of his marathon experiment is that “bras are a false necessity”.

“Medically, physiologically, anatomically – breasts gain no benefit from being denied gravity. On the contrary, they get saggier with a bra,” Professor Rouillon told France Info radio on Wednesday.

There you have it, science has spoken.

How Abstinence-Only Sex Ed Is Driving Up STD Rates ⇢

A 2012 study from the Guttmacher Institute found that more knowledge about sexual health and contraceptives was directly correlated to a decrease in adolescent and young adult risky sexual behaviors, like having sex without barriers or contraceptives, and increased numbers of sexual partners. The study showed that teens who received comprehensive sex ed not only had lower rates of pregnancy but waited longer to have sex—effectively achieving what abstinence-only educational programs have been trying to encourage for decades: waiting to have sex.

Giving young people the tools they need to avoid STDs—not just the tools we personally agree with— ensures that whenever young adults decide to have sex, they don’t end up doing it unprotected, with neither a contraceptive nor accurate information about how to reduce their risk of getting an STD.

Popping Condom Myths ⇢

Seven things you might not know about using condoms!

"Myth: Flavored Condoms May be Used Any Time 
Fact: Condoms seem to come in any flavor imaginable now, even 
scotch whiskey flavored.  While the flavors may spice up oral sex with a condom, they should not be used during vaginal sex.  Many flavored condoms are sugar coated, which increases the changes of a woman getting a yeast infection.
