MONA STARTED DONATING her eggs in 2012, not long after she arrived in the U.S. from the Middle East. As a refugee, Mona, who asked to keep her last name private, ran up credit card debt while she was securing her refugee status and wanted to repay it quickly. “I started to donate because I heard that there was good money,” she says. “When I heard [I could make] between $6,000 and $8,000, I thought, ‘Great, an easy way to make money, close out my debt and be comfortable.’”

Playboy / Dr. Paul Turek Finding the Truth Behind Growers and Showers September 5, 2018

Body Acne

When it comes to penises in their flaccid state, there are two varieties: growers and showers. Growers are penises that, when flaccid, aren’t generally impressive to look at. Showers, on the other hand, represent the boastful peacocks of the penis world. Their members are more visually impressive when soft and more accurately reflect the penis in its erect state.

So, you and your partner have decided you don’t want kids or you don’t want to add any other biological children to your family. It’s nice you’ve come to an agreement, but now it’s time to decide who is going to take the steps to make sure this doesn’t happen.

While there are many options out there for people with a uterus, like the IUD, birth control pills or their having tubes tied, there aren’t as many options for penis-owners. A lot of people hate condoms — they feel very high school, some people are allergic to latex, and really, being able to go at it freely is so much more fun, especially when you know you are going to be with the same partner.

In April, German biology researchers released a study that set forth an eyebrow-raising proposition: Might men who exercise have more intelligent children?

The study, which was published in the peer-reviewed journal Cell, examined genetically identical mice who were raised in sedentary lifestyles. Once they reached adulthood, half from the original group were moved to cages full of equipment to encourage them to be physically active. (Apparently, mice like going to the gym.) The other half remained sedentary. After 10 weeks, scientists found that the physically active mice performed better on cognitive tests than the inactive ones.

I was 17 when a psychiatrist first put me on the antidepressant Prozac, which was actually being used to treat anxiety in my case. Prozac is a serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), which means it keeps the feel-good neurotransmitter serotonin around longer in your brain, theoretically leaving you happier. It did help alleviate some of my anxiety and constant irritability, but it also had a few side effects nobody told me about.

The number of men being screened, diagnosed, and treated for prostate cancer has declined in recent years, suggests a new study.

Researchers from the University of Washington in Seattle were interested in analyzing how the 2012 U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommendation, which advised against using the prostate-specific-antigen (PSA) test for all men, has impacted prostate cancer care around the country. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), prostate cancer is the most common non-skin cancer among men in the United States.

Movies and TV shows tell stories. And while people are increasingly looking to tell more stories, in all their complexities and in more relatable ways, the ways that pop culture looks at things like infertility aren’t always the most realistic.
