Well, when in Rome…. Here's what it was really like. Upon waltzing into its alluring depths, I was immediately struck by how dingy it seemed in comparison to the quaint street I had just left. I noticed a series of doors in front of me, and a few more curving around corners to my left and right. These doors lead into small, dark rooms where patrons pay a certain rate to watch a live solo, or sex show, and well, enjoy themselves.
But what if w A quick look around revealed a toilet paper dispenser, of sorts, mounted on the wall for easy cleanup — how convenient, I thought.
So we stuck our money in said slot. My gaze firmly fixed upon the gyrating two-some, I stared in amazement and bewildered arousal. The couple pounded away at each other, switching positions frequently as the carousel of carnal delights slowly rotated, ensuring that everyone got a proper eye-full of every angle, every hole, and all the corresponding bits and pieces.
After the initial shock and awe of realizing there are two real people having sex right in front of me wore off, I looked up to notice the strangest could this get more strange? But don't think that means you can skip the gym. Inadequate sleep can cause a long list of health problems , from heart troubles to diabetes, to depression and even early death.
Besides the fact that you're on your comfy bed and feeling totally relaxed with your partner, the act itself releases a number of feel-good brain chemicals, including serotonin, oxytocin and prolactin.
Prolactin is linked directly to sleep -- men who have lower prolactin levels won't feel nearly as sleepy and might even have a shorter refractory time. So if you're having trouble sleeping, you should give it a go more often. You know, for your health and all. Stress gets to all of us at some point.
Whether it's the stress of a hectic commute, juggling different responsibilities or worrying about the future, we all feel it from time to time. But if not managed, it can lead to a number of serious health problems , including weight gain, sleep problems, and heart disease, all of which can have serious long-term consequences and potentially cut your life short.
Oh -- and it can also lower your sex drive. In addition to giving you a quick cardiovascular boost and helping you get better sleep, sex helps lower stress by flooding your brain with endorphins that bust stress and boost your mood.
It also releases oxytocin -- the "love hormone" which helps soothe pain. Plus, you'll feel closer to your partner, which is always a reassuring feeling. Tap here to turn on desktop notifications to get the news sent straight to you. Orgasms can add years to your life.
