Sperm: The Newest Anti-Aging Serum?!

I have this theory that there is a covert organization out there, run by men, that is devoted to finding scientific “evidence” that women should give blow jobs and, preferably, swallow.

Decade By Decade: Life Gets Better With Age

People sometimes warn teenagers that their high school years are the best of their lives (“So appreciate them!”). That’s so wrong. First off, zits and residual baby fat aren’t fun.

Failed American Men Should Not Throw Stones At British Women From Glass Houses. Or Something.

Stereotyping a country’s entire female population is never a good idea. Screenwriter Tad Safran, who has somehow managed to get dates in both the U.S. and Britain, says that English women start off looking hot at 17- and 18-years old, but don’t take care of themselves and become fat and ugly a few years dow…
