5.57 inches. Yup, that's it - the average size of the male prize (erect, btw to satisfy the quick defense of "growers"). The data comes from a study that does not mince words, titled “Erect Penile Length and Circumference Dimensions of 1,661 Sexually Active Men in the United States,” which was conducted in order to cut the shit around cultural myths and number inflation, and get men to correctly measure their junk and not lie about ...

Women born with a rare disease called Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser Syndrome just got the greatest gift of all: A VAGINA. Although women with this condition have vulvas, they lack a vaginal cavity and thus live without many common pleasures of a vagina: masturbation, menstruation, sex and a deep, psychological connection with a coochie. Fortunately, by applying a technique developed in the 1990s, Scientists have discovered the ability grow a synthetic ... Read More
The next time someone asks who you're knitting that sweater for, say your brain. It's long been assumed that creative types like Sylvia Plath are somehow more susceptible to depression, when in fact the opposite might be true; writing poems may have been her brain's way of fighting depression.  "When we are involved in (creativity), we feel that we are living more fully than during the rest of life," says Psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi.

YouTube can be a major time-waster, or a super productive educator. Typically the difference in how you use it depends on what time of the day/night you're browsing, how many glasses of wine you may or may not have had, and how stressful your day has been. I don't think I have to outline the correlation between cat video watching and the number of times you made a mistake at work.  For those nights or lunch breaks when you want to return to the world a little ...

Possibly the most adorable scientist of all time (not an exaggeration), tiny Elise wanted to grow some vines on potatoes, and ended up with a foolproof pro-organic argument instead. And her video is way more enjoyable than Food Inc.Watch as she tells us why "wimpy little vines" from sweet potatoes are totally lame, and organic food is where it's at. The adorable is greatly increased by the fact that she did the experiment with her Grandma. Who needs ... Read More

In a recent study published in Social Psychological and Personality Science, Indiana University’s Katie J. Van Loo and Robert J. Rydell suggest that women are negatively affected by seeing models of male dominance within the context of math.   For the study, ... Read More
  There’s been a lot of buzz around a new study that examines the differences between male and female brains. The study, conducted by the University of Pennsylvania’s Ragini Verma and her colleagues and recently published in the journal PNAS, uses advanced imaging to map the connectivity of the left and right brain hemispheres of males and females.

We hear it all the time: sex sells. And it’s true. As the art critic John Berger has suggested, advertisements are effective when they sell a fantasy: buy this product, and you will be envied by all. Women in both art and advertising are often posed for the male gaze; in other words, even if there’s a man in an ad photo, the woman is shown facing the consumer, promising to be just as attainable as the product she sells. Her body is symbolically ... Read More
