Women who eat apples have better sex
23 July 2014

Women who eat an apple a day have better sex, a new Italian study has found. The fruits increase sexual desire, a researcher told The Local.

Researchers from the Santa Chiara hospital in Trento enrolled 731 Italian women from across the country, aged 18 to 43, to take part in an eight-month study aimed at finding a link between daily apple consumption and sexual libido.

The women were split into two groups, those who ate one to two apples a day and those who didn't eat any. Among the 343 women who made apples part of their diet, researchers found they had higher scores on a sexual function index, especially in the lubrication and desire categories, than those who didn’t. “We found that women who regularly ate apples, at least one a day, had a much better quality sex life,” Tomasso Cai, one of the lead researchers, told The Local.

He said that while good physical health and a daily intake of vegetables also help boost women’s sexual desire, the most important factor is floridazina, a compound found beneath the skin of the apple that is similar to the hormone estradiol, which plays an important role in female sexual arousal. “All the women who included an apple or more a day in their diet ate them unpeeled,” he said.

But fear not ladies, you don’t have to restrict yourselves to fruit and vegetables to feel aroused: wine and chocolate are also aphrodisiacs. “We did some research as few years ago which found that the antioxidants in wine also help improve sex, while a study by other Italian researchers found that chocolate had the same effect,” added Cai.

The results of the study were published in the Archives of Gynecology and Obstetrics.

:thank you:

I guess now we know why the bible considers the apple the fruit of sin. God apparently doesn't like women to be sexy, they just have to lie back and be receptacles for men, not have desires of their own.

Morons.

Nice peaches! Greengrocer dresses his fruit in lingerie to boost sales ahead of China’s version of Valentine’s Day
By Sara Malm
1 August 2014

A Chinese businessman has come up with a rather cheeky way of pushing peaches – by dressing them in lacy ‘knickers’.

Yao Yuan from Nanjing, east China, saw an opportunity to boost his sales ahead of China’s version of Valentine’s Day, when he spotted the similarities between his fruits and a female bottom. Mr Yao dresses the fruits in miniature versions of women’s lingerie and sells them for a jaw-dropping £50 a punnet for nine naughty peaches.

The fruits-in-knickers idea has seen sales for Mr Yao’s online fruit business soar, despite the mind-boggling price. ‘Well, peaches and women's bottoms look so similar I thought why not? It's not something I've ever seen anyone else doing. I can't grow enough of them to keep up with the demand,’ Mr Yao explains.

Mr Yao has enlisted a lingerie firm to create the miniature knickers and his fruit pickers in Nanjing, Jiangsu province, dresses each peach by hand. ‘The people who supply our pants make lingerie for some of the most exclusive designer labels in the world. There's nothing tacky about them at all,' the businessman adds.

‘Some of them are black and lacy, some are thongs. We cover all tastes and we can do special commissions too. We had one special client who wanted all nine peaches wearing leather knickers with studs and chains. There's nothing we'd be too embarrassed to handle,’ he added.

This weekend - when China celebrates Qixi festival, the country's version of Valentine's Day - sales are expected to go through the roof. ‘They're sweet, tasty, sexy and funny. It's the perfect present,’ said Yao.

Male brains wired to ignore food in favour of sex, study shows
By Keith Perry
16 October 2014

Image Image

Male brains are wired to make them ignore food and look for a mate instead, according to new research.

The study by the University of Rochester Medical Centre points to how subtle changes in the brain's circuitry dictate differences in behaviour between males and females.

Assistant Professor Douglas Portman said: "While we know that human behaviour is influenced by numerous factors, including cultural and social norms, these findings point to basic biological mechanisms that may not only help explain some differences in behaviour between males and females, but why different sexes may be more susceptible to certain neurological disorders."

The research looked at a microscopic roundworm called C. elegans and focussed on a pair of neurones called AWA that are strongly linked to hunger and finding a partner. Scientists looked at two genders, males and hermaphrodites, an organism that has reproductive organs normally associated with both male and female sexes and can mate with males.

They put the worms in a petri dish and gave them food, leaving them the option to either feed or go in search of a mate. Some worms had been genetically engineered to make them more sensitive to the smell of food by tampering with their neurones.

It was revealed that the normal male worms left their food source and went in search of a mate. However the males who had been genetically engineered to be "hungrier" were ten times less successful at mating as they wanted to stay by the food source. The hermaphrodites stayed put and simply waited near the food source.

The study published in the journal Current Biology suggests that the normal worms were able to ignore or even suppress their hunger in favour of finding a mate. Prof Portman in the Department of Biomedical Genetics and Center for Neural Development and Disease said: "These findings show that by tuning the properties of a single cell, we can change behaviour. This adds to a growing body of evidence that sex-specific regulation of gene expression may play an important role in neural plasticity and, consequently, influence differences in behaviours - and in disease susceptibility - between thesexes."

Drink alcohol and eat meat to improve male fertility - but cut down on coffee, studies suggest
by Antonia Molloy
Monday, 20 October 2014

An excuse to tuck in: Alcohol and meat could aid male fertility. Rex

Too much alcohol can affect a man’s performance in the bedroom – but the occasional pint of beer or glass of wine could actually improve male fertility and sexual function, according to a new study.

By contrast, drinking coffee and other caffeinated beverages makes men less likely to conceive with their partner, researchers found. And another study showed that eating meat increases sperm density, compared to consuming a vegetarian or vegan diet.

Researchers presenting at the 70th Annual Meeting of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine in Honolulu, Hawaii, revealed the impact of various lifestyle factors on men's ability to conceive. A group from the University of Rochester Medical Center in Rochester, New York, studied 753 men undergoing fertility treatment between 2003 and 2011, asking them about their drinking and smoking habits, as well as their sexual health and satisfaction. The average age of the men was 35.

Almost three-quarters (73 per cent) of those surveyed drank alcohol, while only 16 per cent used tobacco. The results showed that drinkers reported better sexual function than teetotallers, while those who didn’t drink alcohol were more likely to report deficiencies in their erections and ability to complete intercourse. By comparison, 8.4 per cent of the smokers had moderate to severe erectile dysfunction and were more likely to be unsatisfied with sex than non-smokers.

However, not all beverages have a positive impact. Between 2007 and 2013 men who underwent IVF at Massachusetts General Hospital were asked about their pre-treatment diet, including their consumption of alcohol and caffeine. Analysis of the data showed that couples where the male partner's caffeine consumption fell in the highest range - more than 265 milligrammes or about three eight ounce cups a day - were only half as likely to have a clinical pregnancy as couples where the man consumed less than 88 milligrammes of caffeine a day.

Meanwhile, researchers from Loma Linda University School of Medicine, in California, found that vegetarian men have significantly poorer sperm concentration and mobility than those who eat meat.

The study compared results from sperm analyses conducted between 2009 and 2013 on 26 vegetarians, 5 vegans, and 443 non-vegetarians. The vegetarians had an average sperm concentration of 51 million/millilitre compared to 70 million/millilitre for meat eaters, as well as lower average sperm mobility: 33 per cent compared to 58 per cent. Vegans’ results were similar to vegetarians’. However, the lower results were not classified in the infertile range, meaning that all the numbers fell in the normal range.

ASRM President Rebecca Z Sokol: “The human organism is complex and substances we inhale and imbibe have systemic effects beyond the stimulation the user is seeking. These studies provide new information that can help men make healthy choices for themselves, their partners, and their future children.”

I'm Lovin' it: McDonald's shows PORN as TV gaffe serves customers an X-rated side order
December 9, 2014
By Gareth Roberts

Image
Saucy: Restaurant staff allowed customers to watch sport while eating

Red-faced McDonald’s bosses have apologised after serving up an X-rated side order of PORN to shocked burger lovers.

The fast-food restaurant set up video screens for customers that were programmed to show a sports channel. But staff didn't realise that in the late evening the channel switched to broadcasting hardcore porn. The blue broadcasts went on for some time in front of the fortunately all-adult clientele before staff in the Swiss branch of the burger joint noticed.

The incident occurred in Zuchwil, a town of about 8,600 in the Swiss canton of Solothurn. Diner Steffen Reiniger, 24, went to the restaurant with some friends for hamburgers before going home. And with their order of burgers they got a saucy side order of eye-popping episodes from the Sexy Sports Clips program aired by Sport 1, a German sports channel. Steffen said: "We were only a group of men so it didn’t bother us, although I don't know what would have happened if there was a family in the restaurant at that time."

McDonald’s said employees were asked to leave the TVs turned to the Eurosport channel, but sometimes workers "change the channel to please a customer," McDonald’s spokeswoman Aglae Strachwitz revealed. She added: "If our employees didn’t immediately realise what was going on it’s because they were concentrating on our customers and their work."

In October an estate agent inadvertently broadcast porn from the window of its office in plush Notting Hill, London. Faron Sutaria's outward-facing screen, which usually shows pictures of £1million-plus properties, was spotted featuring late-night adult TV channel Babestation. Bosses said they believed someone had used a universal remote from outside to change the channel.

Scientists discover truffles contain the Bliss Molecule
16 January 2015

L'Aquila, Italy (ANSA) - Black truffles contain a chemical compound similar to the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) present in cannabis, a research team from three Italian universities made known Friday.

The compound, anandamide, is a neurotransmitter that was first isolated in 1992 and named after the Sanskrit word ananda, meaning bliss. Scientists later discovered it is also present in chocolate.

Researchers at L'Aquila and Teramo universities made the discovery that the so-called Bliss Molecule also exists in truffles along with colleagues from the Biomedical Campus University in Rome.

Naked Models Drenched In Honey Become Works Of Art In This Stunning Photo Shoot
By KC Ifeanyi
February 26, 2015



Honey: good on biscuits, in tea, and, apparently, for drenching naked people from head to toe.

That last example comes courtesy of photographer Blake Little’s photo series “Preservation.”

“When you cover someone in the honey, it has the effect of making them look like they’re in amber--that they’re preserved,” Little says. “And that’s how I came up with the idea and started calling the pictures the preservation photographs.”

And all sorts of people were fair game for Little’s sticky session: The subjects in “Preservation” range from a 1-year-old baby to an 85-year-old woman, and everything in between, including pets. “The honey has a way of democratizing people--to transform them in kind of a universal way,” Little says.

So how much honey does it take to coat a person? Clearly, far more than what’s in that squeezable bottle in your kitchen: Little estimates he used 900 five-pound jugs of honey for the series. Somewhere in the Hundred Acre Wood, a chubby bear in a red shirt is weeping.

“Preservation” has been compiled into a photo book and will be featured in an upcoming exhibit at Kopeikin Gallery in Los Angeles, March 7 through April 18.

After uproar, Utah restaurant statue loses prominent feature
30 March 2015

HURRICANE, Utah (AP) -- The small southern Utah town of Hurricane might become a little quieter after a statue of a copper bull lost its most prominent private feature this weekend.

The sculpture holds a high perch above the sign for Barista's restaurant, and owner Stephen Ward said he woke up Friday and decided the bull would look better without the oversized genitalia that caused uproar among the neighbors. Hurricane residents disturbed by the noticeable, cone-shaped feature had asked the city council to revoke Barista's business license.

Ward told the Spectrum newspaper in St. George Saturday that he made it clear to city officials before he altered the statue that he wasn't bowing to community pressure. "I told them I am not removing the penis for you or because of your complaints. I don't like you. I'm doing it for me," Ward told. "I just decided it would look better without the weenie. And oh my God! It's beautiful."

Even before the battle over the bull, tensions had been running high between Ward and the local community just north of the Arizona border. Customers have said the food is too expensive, alleged that Ward is hostile and has poor business practices. He says his offerings are the best in the region and hasn't hesitated to push back. The dispute got physical on March 14, when an altercation erupted between a Barista's employee and a patron. The patron was cited for a number of misdemeanors, including assault, according to the Hurricane City Police Department. Ward, however, said the incident wasn't handled appropriately and is upset that the patron wasn't arrested.

The copper bull's outsized genitalia reinvigorated the fight. After a steady stream of complaints, city officials were evaluating whether there were grounds to force the removal or modification of the bull.

City Manager Clark Fawcett said the sign was approved by the planning department and Ward went through the proper channels, but: "the dimensions of certain parts of the animal don't seem to be built the same way as in the plan that came to us."

Ward acknowledged Saturday that he did feel like something was a bit off after he installed the bull. "It didn't even look (right), it was in the shape of a cone - but I don't know what a weenie on a bull is supposed to look like," Ward said. He said he didn't put it up to make anyone angry on purpose, but the conflict hasn't hurt his business. "I put it up because it's an amazing piece, and I bought it as-is," he said, "but I am having fun with all the attention and it's brought in more customers."

Apparently you can now buy porn star-flavoured whisky
30 May 2015

image

Here's the weirdest sentence you'll read today: you can now buy whisky that tastes like porn stars.

Tori Black and Joy van Velsen are the apparent master distillers "body blending" Whisky X, which seemingly means people with a lot more money than sense can "experience the perfect combination of premium quality whisky and the most coveted women".

Body-blending? The company's baffling ads imply women are showering in the whisky.

phpBB [video]


Whisky X's website describes it thus:

It’s not just a whisky, it’s body blended By-X. Taste and enjoy, because it is a pleasure to discover your passion for our whisky. Rich taste, high quality of whisky with a unique way of blending. Our whisky is body blended by the most beautiful women. Not only will the quality of our whisky make your heart beat faster, the thought of the same whisky touching the body of the woman of your dreams will leave you speechless.

Right. Well that makes everything really clear.

These bros in the Netherlands had their ludicrous-sounding idea in the pub. They thrashed out their business model on beer coasters, and instead of doing what the rest of us do the next morning and getting on with reality, set about making it happen.

Image

And it's not just lady-skin distilled, oh no: Whisky X is filtered through both diamond and gold as well, which totally justifies the €124.95 (£89.12) pricetag.

Male-Themed Tallywackers Restaurant Opens In Dallas
June 1, 2015

(credit: Tallywackers Facebook)

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – There is now a male version of so-called “breastaurants” like Hooters and Twin Peaks. Tallywackers opened its doors in Uptown Dallas over the weekend.

According to the website, the restaurant welcomes, “anyone who desires a fun atmosphere, amazing food, outstanding talent, and a little eye candy.” Winston Lackey, Tallywackers’ media and marketing director, calls it “guy candy.” He says since Saturday’s grand opening, a wide range of guests have come into the restaurant, including women, men, and even children. Tallywackers does have a small children’s menu, says Lackey.

About 30 men make up the wait staff at Tallywackers, who wear a uniform that’s not much more than a tank top and super short, tight swim shorts. If you visit, you may get a peek under those tank tops if you ask about the “AB-etizers.” The appetizer menu is printed on the inside of the waiters shirts, so when the waiters will reveal it, you also get a look at their abs. Lackey says you don’t have to be a man to work as a Tallywackers waiter, but at this time, no women have applied for the job.

While the Tallywackers concept, its waiters and uniforms are the raising eyebrows, Lackey promises that the food will be the thing that sets them apart from similar restaurants. “One of our most popular burgers is the S & M burger. That’s our Swiss and mushroom burger, and all of our burgers are stuffed.”

Lackey says people have been packing Tallywackers since the opening and with live entertainment (including a drag queen performer on Fridays and celebrity impressionist on Saturdays), he expects the crowds to keep coming. At this time, Dallas is the only Tallywackers location, but the owner plans to open more restaurants in the future.

New Hampshire pulls bartending guides for sexual drink names
September 3, 2015

"The Bartender's Black Book" as seen Wednesday, Sept. 2, 2015. (ELIZABETH FRANTZ / Monitor staff)

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) -- New Hampshire has pulled hundreds of bartending guides from state-run liquor stores after workers complained that the drink manuals contained sexually explicit and derogatory drink names such as "stripper mom."

The Concord Monitor reports the New Hampshire Liquor Commission paid $3,300 for 500 copies of the "The Bartender's Black Book Tenth Edition" as a resource for retail store employees to answer consumer questions about wines and cocktails. Workers started complaining to the commission in April about dozens of drink titles including "panty dropper."

In July, Gov. Maggie Hassan told the commission to recall the guides. "She directed they be removed because they contain material that is potentially offensive to workers and customers," her spokesman, William Hinkle, told the newspaper.

The state's 78 liquor stores accounted for $626 million in sales in 2014 and pumped $149 million in profits into the state's general fund. Private entities cannot operate liquor stores in the state. "In retrospect, we could have done a more thorough job vetting the guide," Liquor Commission spokesman E.J. Powers said in a statement.

The bartending book is widely available for sale and on its cover, it proclaims over 1 million copies sold. "The guide itself features an extensive and informative section by Robert M. Parker, Jr., the most widely known and influential wine critic in the world today," Powers said. It's written by Stephen Kittredge Cunningham, who has a long history in the bar and restaurant industry, according to an "about the author" section.

Real-life gay dads and their kid featured in adorable commercial for Campbell’s Star Wars Soup
6 October 2015
by Greg Hernandez

'Made for Real, Real Life' is tagline for new campaign. Dads channel Darth Vadar in new soup spot. Photo: YouTube

If the gay dads in a new Campbell’s Soup commercial seem to have a natural chemistry with the child in the spot – and with each other – it’s because they are a real-life family.

Larry Sullivan and David Monahan and their son Cooper are the stars of a charming spot for the soup giant’s Star Wars offering. Each dad does his best to channel James Earl Jones as the voice of Darth Vadar as they tell Cooper: ‘I am your Father.’

The spot is one of several with the tagline ‘Made for Real, Real Life.’

Yin Woon Rani, Campbell’s VP-marketing activation, tells Ad Age that the family was so appealing that their planned 15 second spot was extended to also include a 30 second version. ‘We use this phrase internally of this notion of “moment telling,” Woon Rani says. ‘We wanted to tell just very simple, telegraphic stories that didn’t always need the space of a :30. It was sort of a lucky extra because that story just ended up being so rich and so endearing.’

Google Translate error sees Galicia celebrate 'clitoris festival'
by Jessica Jones
2 November 2015

The clitoris: a gastronomic delight typical of Galician cuisine, according to a town that promoted its local festival after using Google Translate.

A town hall in northwestern Spain was left red-faced after a Google Translate error led to it advertising its local leaf vegetable celebration as a much more X-rated affair.

One of the highlights of the year in the town of As Pontes in Galicia, northwestern Spain, is its annual rapini festival, when townsfolk celebrate the town's speciality, the leafy green vegetable similar to spinach. But when residents clicked onto the Castillian Spanish version of the town’s website - provided by Google Translate - to check the dates for next year’s fest they were shocked at the new turn the festival had apparently taken.

"The clitoris is one of the typical products of Galician cuisine," read the description of the festival on the Castillian Spanish version of the town hall’s website, whose original version is written in Galician. "Google translate recognized our Galician word grelo as Portuguese and translated into the Spanish clítoris," town hall spokeswoman Monserrat García, explained to The Local.

Google Translate changed Feira do grelo (Rapini Festival) into Feria Clítoris (Clitoris Festival) leading to some embarrassment when staff at the town hall discovered their error on Thursday. "Since 1981, the festival has made the clitoris one of the star products of the local gastronomy," read the blurb on the town’s official website, extolling the region’s gastronomic goods.

And it is not only the town hall’s website that has received an X-rated makeover thanks to Google. "We discovered that Google translates any mention of grelos, on any website, to clitoris," García said. "It’s a very serious error on the part of Google and we are thinking about making an official complaint for Google to properly recognize the Galician language so this kind of thing doesn’t happen again," she added.

It seems that Google Translate mistakes the Galician grelo for the Portuguese word grelo - which is also the word for the vegetable as well archaic slang for clitoris.

The festival, which promotes the regional product and includes 'a best in show' competition, is scheduled to take place on February 15th 2016. Rapini is a staple of Galician cuisine and is also a common ingredient in Italian and Portuguese dishes. It is a subspecies of turnip and is the southern European equivalent of 'turnip tops' or 'turnip greens' and in the US is known as broccoli raab or broccoli rabe. The vegetable is most commonly eaten with cured pork and potatoes.

Texas company recalls coffee with Viagra-like substance
July 20, 2017

GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas (AP) -- A Texas coffee company is recalling one of its roasts because it was making some men a bit too excited.

Bestherbs Coffee LLC issued the voluntary recall for its New of Kopi Jantan Tradisional Natural Herbs Coffee after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration found it contains desmethyl carbodenafil, which is similar to sildenafil in the erectile dysfunction drug Viagra. Bestherbs, which is based in the Dallas suburb of Grand Prairie, sold the coffee nationwide from July 2014 through June 2016 on various websites and in some retail stores. Albert Yee, who identified himself as the product importer, said he did not know how much of the product was recalled after distribution stopped more than a year ago.

Some customers were buying it to help in the bedroom, but FDA spokeswoman Lyndsay Meyer said it is not clear if the product works like Viagra. No injuries have been reported, but the FDA says the undeclared ingredient could interact with prescription medicine and lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. The product also contains undeclared milk, which could cause a life-threatening reaction to consumers with milk allergies.

The FDA advised customers not to purchase the coffee last year because of the Viagra-like ingredient. The notification was intended to inform the public of foods with hidden drugs and chemicals that are often represented as a natural way to promote sexual enhancement, weight loss and body building, according to the FDA warning. Bestherbs is notifying customers of the recall and offering a full refund for products returned by mail.
