The American concept of sexy is to true sexiness what Hallmark greeting cards are to deep human emotion. Yet it is possible to find sexy moments on the web–mysterious, subtle, original, and alive. Here is a sampling of sexy web finds, clips that capture–for me–the slippery, intoxicating essence of what sexy is.
As a psychoanalyst, I listen to people tell their personal stories through the use of words. As an audience member at a concert, I listen to musicians tell their stories through the use of music. This sometimes includes lyrics but often does not In both scenarios, I often find myself affected by strong feelings.
The clock hits noon—that means its lunchtime. My co-worker brought cookies to work—I might as well eat one (or three). That chips ad on television looks so tempting—I'll go into the kitchen and grab a handful. These are just some examples of eating in response to external cues.
Have you ever felt deluged by invitations, festivities, celebrations, get-togethers, gatherings, blasts, soirees, shindigs, and Super Bowl tail-gates, when all you wanted to do was spend a nice quiet evening with your dog and the Internet?
I didn’t notice the man weaving in and out of the foot traffic and I was so involved with my doughnut-thingie that I didn’t hear him say, as he stepped off the curb to circumvent all of us mortals, “Keep eating. That’s why you take up too much space.”
Our automatic responses to people may be based more on their physical features than the content of their character. Although we may think of ourselves as free of prejudices based on skin color, our behavior may belie that belief.
Join a live chat on the nature of love on February 9 hosted by Science Live. While some people still debate whether nonhuman animals can "fall in love" there are ample data that show they can and do. And it's real love, not "love". We don't need to use quotation marks when talking about animal emotions as if they're not real or not the same as ours.
It is no longer an option to monitor your online presence – it's imperative. Does your current online image reflect you at your best and convey the message you would want potential employers, customers, or clients to see?
It was at the first Eranos meeting after World War II that I met Carl Gustav Jung. I had accompanied Herbert Read and it was he who introduced me to Jung. Memory has it that this was in 1950 when Jung would have been about 75. It was a fairly brief conversation, yet I found that simply being in the great man's presence was impressive enough.
Why have men in so many cultures given up the right and tradition to have multiple wives? Historically, polygyny has been one of the most common and prevalent forms of marriage, worldwide. Increasing research suggests that many men are not disposed towards monogamy. But, in modern Western culture, men with multiple wives are seen as sinners and lawbreakers.
In my practice, the majority of my patients are women. I'm often asked by patients (and friends!) why insomnia is more common in women. As a result, I'm going to dedicate my first few posts to sleep disorders common to women, discussing problems that can occur throughout her life. Today, we'll discuss what happens during pregnancy and what can be done to sleep better.
"The first time I smoked marijuana my mind was awash with Silver Surfer comic books, D&D, and Rush albums. I ached for something more, but whatever that elusive truth was, the suburbs could not contain it."
My formerly popular 11-year old granddaughter is being shunned by her BFFs to the point that she doesn't want to go to school (which she formerly loved). Her parents are going through a divorce, and it's hit her the hardest.
Education is the ticket out of poverty. Black families need educated Black men; their presence is not only requested, it is required. But with fewer Black males in college, it's time for all hands on deck.
With a lack of Black men in college, especially compared to the number of Black women, the social and educational disparity is stark. As more and more Black women pursue college and grad schools, they find themselves with fewer suitable, accomplished, or career-minded, marriage-worthy Black men to have as mates.
Albert Einstein said of the theory of relativity, "I thought of it while riding my bicycle." New ideas tend to bubble up and crystallize when you are inside the aerobic zone. While walking, jogging, biking ... you are able to problem solve in way that is different than when you are sitting at your desk. Neuroscientists are just beginning to understand this phenomenon.
