Female orgasm switches brain areas governing fear
New research indicates that parts of the brain that govern fear and anxiety are switched off during female orgasm.
In the study to map brain function during female orgasm, scientists from the Netherlands also found that as a woman climaxes, an area of the brain that governs emotional control is also heavily deactivated.
“The fact that there is no deactivation in faked female orgasms means a basic part of a real orgasm is letting go. Women can imitate orgasm quite well, as we know, but there is nothing really happening in the brain,'' said neuroscientist Gert Holstege, presenting his findings at the meeting of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology.

- Don’t ever say in front of women that there aren’t any irreplaceable ones. It could happen that they would replace you without letting you know about it.
- Never tell a woman how great she looks when you are on the phone.
- Never tell women small lies. Save your strength for important stuff.
- If you have something you don’t need, never throw it away. Offer it to a woman. Let her throw it away herself.
- Never ask a woman’s opinion on any issue. She will give it to you anyway. And not just one time. And not just one opinion.

A thorough debunking of the conservative movement's anti-woman, anti-sex, anti-evidence arguments.
And if you're at skeptical about this, besides looking at who is doing the writing and the funding, you should also pay close attention to what they're actually saying, and specifically what solutions they're suggesting to the "problem" of young women hooking up.
Laura Sessions Stepp, who wrote Unhooked, writes that young women don't belong in bars, "that's a guy thing," and that they should consider baking cookies to impress men. (Not that there's anything wrong with baking cookies, I'm a big fan myself, but I think you see where this is going...) More>>
Lesbian girls have a different brain structure
It is no news that people who have unconventional sexual orientation look differently. However the study showed that they also think differently.
Lesbians’ brains react differently to sex hormones than those of heterosexual women. An earlier study of gay men also showed their brain response was different from straight men — an even stronger difference than has now been found in lesbians.
Lesbians’ brains reacted somewhat, though not completely, like those of heterosexual men, a team of Swedish researchers said in Tuesday’s edition of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
