Past time for change
The place of women in Catholicism and Islam has always been very explicit, that is to be mothers and doormats for the men, to be hidden out of sight and if they dare to stray from this path, they are punished. In light of our supposed civilisation, it’s a source of shame that we still give special privileges to these religious groups and continue to demean women.
We are not sure when patriarchy began but it was probably one day when some man was in a bad mood, maybe he stubbed his toe, maybe he was sad and depressed for some reason and blamed his mother for bringing him into the world. There no way

The importance of saving your sperm
John Humphrey Noyes came up with the idea of Male Continence back in the 1840’s as a means of preventing unwanted conception, without injury to either husband or wife and ended up with some 250 people living a communal lifestyle where all men and women of the community were married to each other which stirred up a lot of negative criticism at the time which one would expect as the US is a fairly puritanical country.
However he had a great many enquiries from intelligent men and women in ordinary married life seeking information about Male Continence after seeing and suffering the miseries of involuntary propagation which at the time was remarkable for its

Healthy Skin requires a healthy body
Neglect may result in your skin looking like a reptiles
How to keep your good looks and prevent sagging, lines and wrinkles.
Our skin from birth is exposed to sun, dirt and grime, and then washed with various combinations of chemicals. It is also susceptible to the process of ageing and after many years can resemble that of a reptile. But there is hope for lovely soft, clear skin, but first lets think about the skin, it’s functions and requirements:
Your Skin is a barrier to keep your insides in, and to keep the outside world out.
The skin is extremely tough and yet sensitive and can heal itself after injury, like the

The art of being genuine
If you were to ask a couple who have been married for many years what they know about their spouse, they may be able to list a few of their preferences, but if they are completely honest they will admit that they have no idea who this other person is yet they have worked out how to create an amicable life.
People form relationships from biological, personal, social and political needs. The biological need is basic, it’s simply about having sex for reproduction. At a personal level it’s about pleasure then a range of economics, politics power and control. Some people like to be controlling and some people like to be controlled so we’re not

A state of confusion about how to behave
We only come into this world following the act of sexual copulation and it is a biological driver that helps to ensure the continuation of our species.
But in this modern age as in some ages before, there is a great deal of confusion about the act of sex and sexuality. Typically, young people will begin to fantasise about sex and if their social environment is conducive, they may experiment.
There are some modern schools who include human relationships within their curriculum is, but for the majority of young people in the world, sex and what we know about relationships is not taught beyond some simplistic biology.
Consequently, the majority of the

The ways we dress and why
A Tumblr Image
Over these thousands of years we have moved from animal skin cloaks, through a long period of rough-sown garments and simple footwear to highly sophisticated clothing and footwear not only for protection from all manner of extreme conditions, but also to define our character, personal identity and role in life.
Anthropologists think that we humans began wearing clothing about 200,000 years ago as we became a distinct new species, but primarily clothing was to protect ourselves from the elements. It’s quite obvious that we need layers of clothing when the weather it’s cold, waterproof clothing when it rains, and when we are engaged in physical activities related to our work

A major confusion
There is about as much consensus in society about sexuality as there is about spirituality, and more sex happens in peoples minds than their genitals.
Confusion arises because those who assume moral leadership say one thing and do another. Couple this with the ongoing deconstruction of our societies by social and economic forces.
Sigmund Freud described sexuality as the driver of our psychology and a motivator for all our behaviour which remains relevant today.
But the primary drive to have sex comes from a base biological desire to pass on our genes and perpetuate our species. The desire to breed is an instinctive and powerful force in our lives that cannot be 100% controlled by

How the institution came to be and what is best?
In Europe before 1100 A.D. people wanting to join together for fun, to raise a family and what might be seen as marriage just got on with it. But with the growth of European civilisation there was a problem surrounding inheritance and being absolutely sure the ‘right’ child was being left the family fortune, because in those days the oldest child or the oldest boy child inherited the family assets.
To resolve this issue, the Catholic church came up with the idea of a church sanctified marriage which coincidently helped to fill their coffers. They also made up rules about who could marry who in order to restrict the accumulation

HGH is Not A Steroid
Human Growth Hormone is not a steroid. Read that again. HGH and anabolic steroids are not the same thing. Got it? Good, because there are so many misconceptions about both agents of human growth and development that most people simply lump them into the same category.
Heck, even the media doesn’t know the difference. Most stories you read about performance enhancing drugs just hide the fact that the journalist who wrote the story doesn’t have a clue about what steroids are, what HGH does, and that there’s no grey area that separates the two in athletic competition. HGH is not steroids. Simple as that.
HGH is a synthetic version of growth hormone, a

A language correction
Slut is a derogatory term and unhelpful in any society and as the world slides deeper into strife, it’s totally unhelpful and uncalled for and remember one of the key phrases with and religion is ‘judge not so that ye shall not be judged’.
Labels that are applied to anyone are limiting and therefore depressing, and depression is what we need to lift the world out of. But in many societies today woman are expected to dress for a sexual effect and yet if they have sex without someone else’s consent, they are derided.
This is not only unfair, it is also unjust and offensive to all concerned even though the perpetrator may believe they are
