I m starting to think it must be a LOT of fun to be the editor of the Journal of Medical Hypotheses. First there was the one about decreasing blood to the cortex and enhancing the sexual experience, and now this (hat tip, my friend Scott, and here s very much hoping Ike spared your house): Zarrintan, S Ejaculation as a potential treatment of nasal congestion in mature males The Journal of Medical Hypotheses, 71(2), 2008. Oh man, this one s so good I almost just want to quote it verbatim. But I won t. So I m sure you ve all been congested as some point. Usually we reach for the Sudafed (if we can get some, in the States it s like pulling teeth), or the Dayquil, or perhaps just put our heads over a cup of steaming tea. But how many of us think man, if only I could get off right now Though
If youвre keeping a snake or lizard as a pet, providing the right temperature is crucial, as these animals cannot heat themselves. Make sure you know the natural habitat, temperature and lighting conditions for your particular species. Both a primary and secondary heat source are required to mimic the natural environmentвs temperature gradient. A primary source of heat such as a series of incandescent lights is a good strategy. Turn these off at night and provide another heat source, such as a heating pad under the cage. Use secondary heat sources that generate specific temperatures in specific areas of the habitat. In addition to heat, proper lighting includes a source of UV light such as fluorescent full-spectrum bulbs. A bale of painted turtles bask in the sun. A group of turtles is

is one method of water purification. Is distilled water safe to drink or as good for you as other types of water? The answer depends on a few different factors. In order to understand whether distilled water is safe or desirable to drink, let s take a look at how distilled water is made: What Is Distilled Water? Distilled water is any water that has been purified using distillation. There are multiple types of distillation, but all of them depend on separating components of a mixture based on their different boiling points. In a nutshell, water is heated to its boiling point. Chemicals that boil off at a lower temperature are collected and discarded; substances that remain in a container after the water evaporates also are discarded. The water that is collected thus has a higher purity

Wilhelm is a butt scooter and needs a routine vet trip to have his anal glands expressed (about every six weeks. ) I had always thought it odd that he scoots more often than just towards the end of the six week stretch (when the glands are fullest. ) I wonder if he is trying to express them or if he just has an itchy butt? He often smiles when he scoots (it must feel good! ) Pumpkin did not help his glands do behind own thing. My former long haired cats, Emily and Gryphon, would scoot when they had feces stuck to the fur around their anus. ...
I have lost interest in having intercourse with my husband because many times I get a burning sensation. Also, I often get infections afterwards. Do other women experience this problem and what can be done about it? One of the most common causes of painful sex in women is vulvodynia, defined as discomfort or burning pain in the vulvar area with no obvious cause, such as an infection, cancer, or neurologic disorder like herpes or spinal nerve compression. This common cause of vaginal pain is frequently misdiagnosed. The condition is estimated to affect about 16 percent of women; a number some researchers suspect may be much higher. The pain often prevents women from exercising, having intercourse, and, in extreme cases, even walking. READ: Does Your No one really knows what causes it,
