M asturbation is the act of sexual stimulation of one’s own genitals for sexual arousal or other sexual pleasure, usually to the point of orgasm. The stimulation may involve hands, fingers, sex toys such as vibrator, or a combination of these. Often times, our cultural background, moral and religious inclinations have made us to totally condemn masturbation as evil and abominable. We reject and immediately pass judgment to those we caught masturbating. It doesn’t take much to convince someone that masturbation has at least one upside: experience one orgasm and most people are likely to want another (and another, and another…). But while pleasure is arguably worth it for its sake, masturbation has a lot more to offer than toe-curling orgasms. Despite a cultural failure to take self-love seriously, it turns out that regularly getting it on solo can be good for our physical and mental health, our relationships, and our overall happiness.

Moral or Immoral? New York Legalizes Abortion Up to Baby's Birth Day on Anniversary of Roe v. Wade

New York legislators cheered and applauded Tuesday night after the state Senate removed restrictions on late-term abortions, allowing unborn babies to be aborted on the day of birth.  The Reproductive Health Act  passed with a 38-28 vote and was signed into law by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D).  "Today we are taking a giant step forward in the hard-fought battle to ensure a woman's right to make her own decisions about her own personal health, including the ability to access an abortion," Gov. Cuomo said. The law erases New York's previous limitations on abortion which restricted the fatal procedure past 24 weeks.  The Reproductive Health Act states, "every individual who becomes pregnant has the fundamental right to choose to carry the pregnancy to term, to give birth to a child, or to have an abortion." The law also removes abortion from the definition of homicide and New York's criminal code altogether. Previously, New York law treated

15 Signs Your Marriage Isn’t Worth Saving I Tehrene Firman

If you haven’t noticed, love is one complicated beast. One second, everything seems great—the butterflies are fluttering every time you see your partner, and you basically have to ban yourself from sending heart-eyed emojis. Then the next, you’re Googling how to file divorce papers. Sometimes, issues can be worked out and you can get that initial spark back once again, and other times, it might just be better to throw in the towel and move on. Here are 15 signs your marriage isn’t worth saving—and you’re better off letting that towel fly. 1. You Feel Unsafe Your partner is supposed to be your protector—not someone who makes you feel unsafe in your own home. And that’s one of the biggest reasons why to end a relationship, stat. “If your safety and the safety of your children is being threatened, it may be better to move forward in your own physical space with your own life,” says psychologist Paulette Sherman , author of Facebook Dating: From 1st Date to Soulmate .


From the creation of the world till now, how to achieve happiness has been a serious issue for many great thinkers, authors, and counselors. The voyage for happiness seems to be a big deal. Bookshelves and magazines have volumes of materials with different topics on happiness. Among other questions lingering in the minds of many today include: “Why am I still living? “Is it not better I join my ancestors?” “Is my life not useless and a mess?” It is part of our natural instinct to seek happiness. We seek to experience physical pleasure and avoid physical pain; we long for emotional pleasure and try to avoid emotional pain. Our emotional enjoyment on what we call happiness is plainly part of human nature, which is why happiness should be the priority of every living being. Aristotle (384 - 322BC), in his Nicomachean Ethics: Books I to IV, wrote that “happiness is the highest good and the end at which all our activities ultimately aim.” Indeed, all our activities aim at some end, thoug


Most people think that other people are out to get them. They believe that others conspire against them. But they forget one key factor, they are too close to the picture to see what’s really happening, they forget that other people are exactly that, people. They too are scared, flawed, trying their best to find themselves and their place in this world. Just like you, they seek something, they try to be loved. 5 Things Other People Want From You: 1. Your Love What every human really wants is to be loved. To find love. But rarely who understands what love is, and what love is not. People can’t find love within themselves so they seek for it outside. Give others love without asking anything in return. 2. Your Kindness Some might say that kindness is more important than knowledge, it’s more important than being right. What does it mean, to be kind? It means to realize that everyone is fighting a hard battle, and to be gentle with them. People need to be shown kindness


Making a change in your life does not start based on some man made calculation to keep track of the planet’s movement. It starts every day, every moment. With the start of the new year most people create resolutions and goals they would like to follow and achieve. But since a start of a new year is a great push, here are 6 tips to follow in order to achieve your happiness. 1    Seek God Obviously, God is the engine room of all happiness. He is the highest point of all happy lives, and the only network in which happiness reaches everyone. For example, before you get electricity anywhere, there must be a connection somewhere. In the same vein, before reaching anybody - your friends or relative - through phone, you must be connected to a network provider. That is how God is, in the journey of happiness. The happy moments comes from God. On a daily basis, we jubilate, celebrate a party and organize events here and there.  2   Follow your heart unconditionally. There i
