Red Light and How it Can Affect Your Sleep

Red light therapy has been found to be helpful for skin health, wound healing, hair growth among people with alopecia and pain management. Some have claimed it’s also useful for sleep, but research and experts tell a different story. Circadian rhythms — the body’s internal clock controlling our sleep and wake cycles — respond “to light as a signal to be awake, and to dark as a signal to fall asleep,” according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “The most important thing that influences and trains our circadian rhythms to 24 hours a day is light. And light has many, many different wavelengths,” said Dr. Raj Dasgupta, an associate professor of clinical medicine at the University of Southern California’s Keck School of Medicine. “That’s why when we talk about blue light or red light, we’re not talking about a red-colored light bulb. It’s the wavelength of light.” We’re most sensitive to blue-wavelength light — the kind emitted [...]

Health Benefits of Sex for Women

Health Benefits of Sex for Women.  Here’s a subject most “women of a certain age” don’t talk about sex. More specifically, we don’t talk about what it means to have a healthy sex life. That’s unfortunate, because as we get older, maintaining a healthy sex life has more benefits than ever, and not just to our relationship. A good sex life can improve sleep quality, support immune function, boost mental health, and increase our sense of well-being. To put it bluntly, the health benefits of sex and the sexual satisfaction of older women are topics we should all be talking about. Read on for the numerous Health Benefits of Sex. Stress Relief Feeling stressed out or frazzled by life lately? It might be surprising, but good sex might be the stress relief you need. That’s because when you engage in sexual activity, your body releases a cocktail of feel-good hormones like oxytocin, endorphins, and dopamine. These hormones create a sense [...]

Testosterone Declining in Young Men

By |2023-05-31T05:27:13+00:00May 31st, 2023|Articles|

Testosterone is plummeting among young men — and their X-rated digital sexcapades could be the kinky culprit. The hormone helps maintain and develop sex organs, muscle mass, red blood cells, bone density and more, but it may be in short supply in some men. According to the Cleveland Clinic, low testosterone affects about 2% of men, with symptoms ranging from depression, loss of body hair and reduced libido to erectile dysfunction and low sperm count. According to The Sun, the level of testosterone in young men is declining, and watching porn or gaming excessively could be to blame. A 2017 study found that men who played video games had lower libidos than those who didn’t. In fact, the researchers suggested that engaging with video games released dopamine — the same “pleasure hormone” released during orgasm — which could contribute to lack of interest in intimacy. © Provided by New York Post Young men have experienced decreased libidos as a result [...]

Climax is Impossible for My Boyfriend

By |2023-05-29T05:16:21+00:00May 29th, 2023|Articles|

DEAR DEIDRE: SEX with my boyfriend is the best I’ve ever had, but no matter what we do, he can’t reach a climax. He says he doesn’t mind and that he loves it, yet I can’t help but worry that I’m doing something wrong. I’m 34, he’s 38 and we’ve been together for six months. Our relationship is amazing and when it comes to sex he always puts in lots of effort to make sure that I’m enjoying myself. He’s brilliant at foreplay and I have multiple orgasms every single time. The only trouble is I end up thinking sex isn’t half as good for him. While he gets aroused and has a good time, he has never reached a climax with me. He reassures me that it’s fine but I’m starting to worry that it might be something deeper. I know I should trust his word but what if he’s just trying to spare my feelings? Get in touch [...]

By |2023-05-28T15:05:43+00:00May 28th, 2023|Articles|

Comprising around 300 undergraduate students, Tufts Burlesque Troupe is one of the largest student dance groups you’ll find on campus. Committed to creating a body-neutral environment fit for exploring oneself and celebrating diversity, this no-audition group has been a second home to many students over the years. Welcoming to students of all years and levels of dance, the Troupe embraces sexiness and comfort in one’s own body. Current undergraduate seniors and Burlesque executive board members Nyssa Singhal, Alexa Brown, Nick DaRosa and Julia Murray reflected on their experience with Burlesque. Burlesque has grown greatly over the past few years, representing and welcoming students from all walks of life. “I feel like it’s given me my place at Tufts and [also] my community,” DaRosa said. And, with such high demand to see the Troupe’s shows, members of the group’s executive board and dance choreographers are actively making efforts to keep this inherently vulnerable space safe for all. “One of the biggest [...]

Magic Mushrooms Will Be Legal in California

By |2023-05-27T04:21:49+00:00May 27th, 2023|Articles|

A bill that would decriminalize the possession of some psychedelic substances such as magic mushrooms passed the California State Senate Wednesday and now heads to the State Assembly. Senate Bill 58, which was introduced by Senator Scott Weiner, would allow people age 21 or older to own or prepare “certain hallucinogenic substances,” including psilocybin, psilocyn, dimethyltryptamine (DMT), ibogaine, and mescaline. Psilocybin is often referred to as “magic mushrooms.” The bill would also repeal laws that prohibit growing “spores or mycelium capable of producing magic mushrooms or other material which contain psilocybin or psilocyn.” SB 58’s decriminalization of mescaline specifically excludes peyote derivatives. The bill’s author states that peyote use, and cultivation will remain a crime because the plant is “nearly endangered” and because of its historical spiritual use by Native Americans. Although the bill would decriminalize some psychedelics, these substances would be prohibited on school campuses and adults would be prohibited from providing them to people under the age of [...]

Sexual Intercourse? Teens Weigh In

By |2023-05-26T05:07:11+00:00May 26th, 2023|Articles|

Sexual Intercourse - Situationships. “Sneaky links.” The “talking stage,” the flirtatious getting-to-know-you phase — typically done via text — that can lead to a hookup. High school students are having less sexual intercourse. That’s what the studies say. But that doesn’t mean they’re having less sex. The language of young love and lust, and the actions behind it, are evolving. And the shift is not being adequately captured in national studies, experts say. For years, studies have shown a decline in the rates of American high school students having sex. That trend continued, not surprisingly, in the first years of the pandemic, according to a recent survey by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The study found that 30% of teens in 2021 said they had ever had sex, down from 38% in 2019 and a huge drop from three decades ago, when more than half of teens reported having sex. The Associated Press took the findings to teenagers [...]

Sex with Someone New

By |2023-05-25T17:29:38+00:00May 25th, 2023|Articles|

Sex with someone new and when should it happen has always been a question. Single people are often left wondering when they should have sex with a new partner for the first time, fearing sleeping together too soon will brand them as a one-night stand but waiting too long could make the other person lose interest. Meet Tinx, the TikTok influencer who has set out to solve for this predicament in her new book, "The Shift: Change Your Perspective, Not Yourself." She hopes her "box theory" and other dating advice can help "rebrand" dating from "just a means to an end" to "an era of self-discovery." While the book's target audience is women and the dating tips offered are geared toward women who date men (Tinx writes in the book that she is "staying in my extremely straight lane and writing what I know"), much of the advice remains helpful regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation. Start the day [...]
