Is Loneliness To Blame For The Loss Of Your Erection?

Is Loneliness To Blame For The Loss Of Your Erection? | Sex Positive | Scoop.it

Loneliness leads to health problems: higher rises in morning levels of the stress hormone cortisol, altered gene expression in immune cells, poorer immune function, higher blood pressure and an increased level of depression. Loneliness also is related to difficulty getting a deep sleep as well as a faster progression of diseases, including Alzheimer’s. Those things alone can affect a man’s ability to become aroused. But there’s more.

There are more people that approve of polygamy, than there are people that approve the United States Congress! | Sex Positive | Scoop.it

A poll conducted by the New York Times in October of 2011, stated that only 9% of people approved of Congress. Basically, 91% of the polled population believed that Congress was no good, and that they didn't trust them.

If you think that number is shocking, just wait until you hear about how many people support polygamy! Shockingly, polygamy being labelled as "morally acceptable" is approved by 11%!

Why Many Young Chinese Women Are Writing Gay Male Erotica

Why Many Young Chinese Women Are Writing Gay Male Erotica | Sex Positive | Scoop.it

An antipornography campaign in China has netted many young female writers of danmei, erotic fiction focusing on relationships between gay men, a popular outlet for those seeking to escape stifling social identities, scholars say.


...Danmei is part of an ‘‘ongoing sexual revolution’’ with feminist characteristics in China, perhaps the country’s first, said a Chinese academic who requested anonymity. China is currently undergoing a crackdown on pornography that has netted danmei writers and website managers, and closed some sites, sexual rights advocates said. ‘‘The campaign is really having an impact,’’ the researcher said.



Creating and consuming danmei is a way for women to explore their long-repressed sexuality, said Ms. Jacobs.



‘‘I think Chinese culture is still harsh on women in terms of how far they can go in developing a fantasy life or erotic art forms,’’ she said. ‘‘I think they have to be very careful in coming out with their fantasies. The norm is stifling.’’
