My cum is crystal clear and despite months of trying, my girlfriend can’t get pregnant. It has always been clear and not white. I read this could be due to low sperm count. Do I need to undergo fertility tests or is clear ejaculation normal?

What to Do if Your Teen Is Cutting Class

Algebra = not fun. Nipping out to McDonald’s = fun. AP history = so not fun. Hiding in the woods with friends during third block = extra fun. Chemistry = torture. Sleeping through the snooze button in a soft, warm bed = absolute bliss. Your average high schooler might use these equations to explain why they ditch class. Don’t believe […]

Is there a universal hierarchy of human senses?

Research at the University of York has shown that the accepted hierarchy of human senses—sight, hearing, touch, taste and smell—is not universally true across all cultures. Researchers found that rather than being able to predict the importance of the senses from biology, cultural factors were most important. Study revealed that cultures which placed particular value on their specialist musical heritage […]
