The next time you get caught cheating, just blame nature and your physiology. Women who have a high level of the sex hormone oestradoil may be more likely to cheat, according to a recent study of 52 women aged 17 to 30. Women with high levels of oestradoil are highly fertile and feel more attractive, which makes them more likely to flirt, kiss, or have a serious affair. Highly fertile women apparently tire easily of long-term partners and are motivated to find more desirable partners. This excuse, however, won’t work if you’re just having casual sex on the side because women with high levels of oestradoil are usually serial monogamists. But then again, I doubt your man will be able to tell whether you have a lot of oestradoil. Can they make a T-shirt for that? [Science Daily via AOL] Keep reading »
More babies are made when the people involved in the process have orgasms. When men are fully stimulated, they ejaculate up to 50 percent more than during just any ole intercourse, and an extra five minutes of going at it before he gets off can produce even more sperm. For women, scientists believe that having orgasms can help them suck up the sperm and send it on its way into the uterus. And I haven’t even told you about the pig research yet! Danish researchers have found that sows (female pigs) that were sexually stimulated by farmers during artificial insemination had a 6 percent increase on their fertility. Don’t worry, that can’t be nearly as dirty as it sounds because the Danish government gives farmers instructions on how to stimulate their pigs. Moral of the story: If you’re lucky enough to be having really good sex that’s chock full of orgasms, don’t get careless with your birth control. [The Observer] Keep reading »
“We’ve demonstrated that women can do what men do, but not yet that men can do what women do. That’s why most women have two jobs — one inside the home and one outside it — which is impossible. The truth is that women can’t be equal outside the home until men are equal in it.”

So the bitch factor has been turned WAY up with the addition of socialite and “fabulousity-crowd” lover Kelly Killoren Bensimon on “The Real Housewives of New York City.” Thanks to last night’s episode, we already know annoying/insecure Bethenny hates her guts, but the mannish model/equestrian managed to make the rest of the “Housewives” think she’s a total tool by refusing to participate in Jill’s charity. Is Kelly trying to steal C(o)untess LuAnn’s crown or is she just being given a hard time because she’s the newbie on the show? Perhaps a little digging will reveal the real Kelly….
