vintage album cover via flickr We’ve long known that The One Who Got Away makes for great late-night Google fantasies.

Toward a 2012 Treaty in the Battle of the Sexes

Monday, December 26, 2011

0 Comments

As you may have noticed (we’re not exactly subtle on this point), we don’t buy the idea that men are from Mars, women are from Venus, and shuttles between the two are infrequent at best. We tend to think that women and men are a lot more alike than rumor (or headline) has it — [...]

How Different Are Girls’ and Boys’ Brains?

Monday, November 21, 2011

0 Comments

One theory on the connection is that sex with animals could cause micro-injuries to the penis, which are a well-recognized risk factor in the development of penile cancer. You’d [...]

Benevolent Sexism? Not So Much

5 Comments

In case you’ve been hiding under a rock lately — or watching the soon-to-canceled TV show Playboy Club – so-called benevolent sexism is doing or saying nice things for sexist reasons.

Friday, September 9, 2011

0 Comments

photo via flickr The female orgasm is a mystery, and not just in that how-the-hell-can-I-make-my-girlfriend-climax kind of way. Scientists just can’t seem to figure out what it’s there for. The most recent theory — popularized in the 2005 book The Case of the Female Orgasm — was that it was just an accidental evolutionary by-product [...]
