THIS IS YOUR BRAIN ON SEX

THIS IS YOUR BRAIN ON SEX

  Photo borrowed from www.livescience.com Written by AlphaSiren. Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about the body-mind connection; personally, I’ve always felt a very strong connection between the two but it’s only recently that I’ve been researching on how that connection parlays into sexual experience and satisfaction. This is Your Brain on Sex In speaking with friends (and strangers) and reading many articles on this subject, it appears many people don’t realize or think about their brain when it comes to...

THE OMNIGAMIST’S DILEMMA

THE OMNIGAMIST’S DILEMMA

                Written by Christopher Ryan I was a vegetarian for a few years during the Reagan administration. Or was I? It all comes down to whether you’re willing to overlook an occasional pepperoni pizza and a few slices of bacon every now and then. From my perspective, the pressure released by the occasional lapse into cured meats empowered my admittedly imperfect vegetarianism. When you’re going up against ravenous natural appetites that evolved over millions of years, compromise may...

THEY’RE JUST TITS

THEY’RE JUST TITS

Written by AlphaSiren   I love my tits. They’re certainly not big porno tits and they could probably be sitting a bit higher on my chest than they are, but hey, I’m 40, and all things considered, they’re pretty fucking great. I’ve always been a small breasted girl and happily so. Sadly though, not all women have such a harmonious relationship with their breasts (which really they should because hey, BOOBS ARE AMAZING!) and much of that has to do with how society views girls’ Girls – their...

POKERFACE

POKERFACE

  I have had my fair share of needles in life. From the dentist, to the doctor, to the acupuncturist, to the tattoo artist; I have been poked, prodded, jabbed and inked. All for good reason and always for long term betterment. But, when my friend Cassandra Anderton asked me if I wanted to take advantage of a free vitamin facial treatment, I wasn't anticipating the pointy end of a syringe. I envisioned the sounds of a stream or waves lapsing on a pebbled shore, emitting from an in house sound system, all the while getting my...

The Struggle is Real

The Struggle is Real

  I am very conscious of the fact that you haven’t heard from me in a while. I haven’t been away on business or traveling for pleasure. I haven’t been sick in the hospital or tending to anyone else who might be ailing. I didn’t take up with the circus (I wish!), nor did I have a baby (good god, no.) No, the deafening silence has been due to me just trying to ‘do life’ (read: just cope), during which time I’ve been trying really hard to write, I swear. My noggin is churning with so many words and...

THE COSTS OF CIVILIZATION

THE COSTS OF CIVILIZATION

  History is not a collection of threads that connect individual people and ideas across time; history is a web in which all ideas and all lives are entangled. Civilization is a package deal. These ostensibly positive things don’t suddenly appear without context or cost. They come wrapped in the antecedent conditions and cruelties of their creation: no blues without slavery; no moon landing without NAZI rocket scientists; noSlaughterhouse-Five without Vonnegut cowering in an underground meat locker while Dresden...

AFTER THE BIG ONE

AFTER THE BIG ONE

            Is it just me or were there a slew of articles and news stories this summer about The Next Big One? Maybe I’m a glass half-empty kinda girl after all (I’m not), but I found myself thinking a lot about when that next monster earthquake happens, and the fact that when it does, it will very likely demolish all that we, on the coastal Northwest, call home. The Really Big One, published in the July 20th issue of the New Yorker, was a sobering (but worthwhile) read, filled...

World stock markets decline on economic concerns

World stock markets decline on economic concerns

Global equity markets fell sharply this week as result of global economic concerns, continued weakness in emerging markets, volatility in China's stock market, and further declines in commodities prices. Canada's S&P/TSX Composite fell sharply to end the week at an eighteen month low. A broad decline in financial and energy stocks reflected a steep drop in U.S. crude prices which ended the week just above $40 a barrel. The materials sector was little changed as support from rising gold prices helped offset worries about base...

Mixed week for global equity markets

Mixed week for global equity markets

Global stock markets were mixed this week, with North American markets failing to keep up with their European counterparts. Canadian share prices fell in a holiday-shortened trading week as the key financials, energy and material sectors declined. Oil fell to fresh multi-month lows on U.S. dollar strength, an increase in U.S. production and support for a nuclear deal with Iran that could lift sanctions on the country's oil exports. Canada saw some encouraging economic data. The country in June experienced its biggest monthly increase in...

Deal with Greece powers equity markets

Global stock markets posted solid gains this week, helped by news that Greece and its creditors had struck a deal to alleviate the country’s debt problems and enable it to remain in the European Union. The deal would provide Greece with a third eurozone bailout package to eliminate the immediate threat of the country defaulting on debts and to aid its troubled banks. In exchange, Greece must implement significant austerity measures and economic overhauls. The Greek parliament passed austerity reforms on Wednesday, including spending...
