Scientists compared the differences in genes between friends and strangers across nearly 2,000 people and they found that friends tend to have a more similar set of genes than strangers. Perhaps it's "The Starbucks Effect" -- if two people like the smell of coffee maybe they're more likely to hang out together.

If you're single and over 50, finding a new sexual partner can be daunting. Here are 10 ways to have more sex, from taking an erotic class to going on a singles' holiday.

However, short-term pleasure, a sense of belonging, and the excitement of abandoning homonormative sociosexual practices cannot be divorced from either a willful rejection of long-term health or a romanticized concept of what HIV infection leads to.
I left that sucker in the shower for my husband to see. The look on his face was priceless: "Did you just...?" "Oh, shoot. Did I leave that in there?" As I sashayed off to make breakfast.
I'm on my own for this one. I walked in 'eyes wide shut' as they say. Knowing, seeing, being told, 'This one is not for you,' and going for it anyway. And five or six breakups later, it's hard to count them now, I'm finally sober enough to admit my problem.

It's time for women to stop judging each other and discriminating based on an aspect of our lives that is supposed to be private. We live in the 21st century, and if boys get to high-five each other over beer and pizza about their sexual adventures, why can't women do the same thing?
I am single again but something feels different this time around -- I'm content being alone for the first time in my adult life. I've decided to use this period, unattached to a male counterpart, to break the cycles I've been repeating for years.
