“In 2014, Tennessee made national news when it became the first state in the country to pass a law specifically making it a crime to use drugs while pregnant.

Several leading medical organizations opposed the legislation and cautioned that it would have a negative public health effect of scaring women away from seeking medical help. That’s exactly what happened. ”

“The UK study involved women suffering from one of the most aggressive types of breast cancer – HER2 positive – who were given a combination of two targeted drugs.

Almost nine in 10 women showed some response to the treatment – meaning the number of cancer cells began to fall. In one in four cases, the powerful cocktail saw tumors shrink significantly, and in some cases totally vanish.”

​How Gay Men Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Semen

“It’s hard to pinpoint exactly when semen became the focus of so much erotic fixation in the gay community. Maybe it had something to do with AIDS activist Tony Valenzuela coming out on the cover of Poz magazine in 1999 as an HIV+ gay man who enjoyed condom-less sex. ‘The unprotected sex … was beautiful, intimate, satisfying. I didn’t shower afterward,’ he told the magazine. ‘We slept with his come inside me.’ Or maybe the threshold was crossed in 2004 with the release of the seminal porn flick Dawson’s 20-Load Weekend, in which a strapping, virile bottom has unprotected sex with a score of men. Or maybe it came earlier, when treatments for HIV/AIDS developed in the 90s made the disease more manageable and convinced many gay men not to think of semen as potential life-destroying poison.”

STIs, Shame, and the Sabbath: What It’s Like to Learn About Sex as an Orthodox Jew

“I first learned about sex in the bathroom of my co-ed yeshiva day school when I was eight. While we huddled around an automatic hand drier, two of my kippa-wearing, tzizit-wielding friends told me roughly what happens when a man masturbates: “You rub your dick a lot and then white stuff shoots out!” I listened in horror, unsure if they were joking. I was too scared to ask my parents or teachers and embarrassed to ask my friends to clarify; I wouldn’t hear about sex from my teachers until I was nearly 13.”

Kentucky lawmaker’s bill forces men to get note from wives before purchasing Viagra

“Tired of what she considers the government inserting itself into women’s private lives, a Kentucky lawmaker has decided to return the favor.

Rep. Mary Lou Marzian, a Louisville Democrat, has introduced a bill that would force men who want to use erectile dysfunction drugs to jump through a series of humiliating hoops beforehand, such as visiting a doctor twice and getting notes from their wives.

‘I want to protect these men from themselves,’ Marzian, who is a nurse, told the Courier-Journal.

‘This is about family values,’ she added.

Mazian told Fox affiliate WDRB that House Bill 396 would also require that someone seeking Viagra, Cialis, Levitra or Avanafil ‘make a sworn statement with his hand on a Bible that he will only use a prescription for a drug for erectile dysfunction when having sexual relations with his current spouse.'”

“A couple of Fridays ago, I walked my older son to school and then my younger son to daycare. Then I crossed over the ice-and-salt encrusted overpass to the metro station and headed downtown. As I emerged back up onto the street, I checked my phone and enjoyed a little lift of triumph. Getting places a bit early or exactly on time is one of my small pleasures. It means all my systems are humming just right. That morning, I was five minutes early for my appointment to have an abortion.”
