Hi there. I’m not sure what you had planned, but FYI, today, December 11, is statistically the most fertile day of the year. According to new research, the most popular birthday in the UK is September 16. This means that most of those babies were conceived on … today, the day of babymaking. Researchers attribute this surge in conception to holiday parties and the cold weather, which makes sperm quality better. So, if you’re in the market for a kid, today is the day to make it happen. Get busy. And if you’re not trying to get knocked up, feel free to celebrate anyway. Just be careful. [Daily Mail UK]
There are some indignities that your Christmas tree or Chanukah bush should not have to endure. Like having a nut sack dangle from its branches. We appreciate that the “Bauballs” ornament was created to raise money and awareness about testicular cancer, but Santa, and the rest of your family, can surely survive the holiday season without a pair of balls swinging from the tree’s branches. Buy one, or make a donation, but we beg you, don’t decorate with ball sack. Your tree deserves better than that. Click on through to see more ornaments that at NSFT (not suitable for tree). Or work.

Just in time to shit on holiday hookup season, The Sun has a feature about the young, hot and hip, dressed in their Christmas best, who have a “dark secret.” “Although they look fresh and fabulous, each one of them [has had] a sexually transmitted infection,” the piece warns.
Womp womp. Just in case you were considering using the holiday season as an excuse to have a quick and dirty hookup, FORGET IT. As if the festivity of the Yuletide could make one forget that there were 427,000 new STI diagnosis in the UK last year. Not a chance, but thank you kindly for the reminder.
As long as you are an adult, which I’m presuming you are, you don’t need a reminder to use protection year-round. (Do you?) STIs are the least of your worries when it comes to hooking up this holiday season. After the jump, the actual reasons you might want to abstain from getting frisky at your next holiday party.

One in every five women has been sexually assaulted. And most of those assaults happen before the age of 25. I am a woman. I’m 25 years old, and I am part of the 20 percent of women who have been raped.
It’s one of the hardest things I’ve had to accept about myself, and it’s one that’s not frequently talked about. Keep reading »
Sex is weird for guys. We have simple tastes and simple needs that seem to require minimal upkeep. Hell, for that matter, we barely require attention or even presence. Most men could have sex inside our local zoo’s poisonous snake exhibit and not give it a second thought until after the orgasm, when we’re prying puff adders off of our balls and screaming for antivenom. From this perspective, it’s almost impossible for us to understand it when a woman loses the mood. How? What’s wrong with her? Is she a prude?
Before we go jumping to that conclusion, it’s probably best to first turn those accusations inward. Because until you learn these basics, there’s a good chance she’s going to run out of excuses and just fake her own death to avoid your dong. Read more…
