Posted in: , , , ,

When I received this infographic on "Why Sex is Good for Your Health", I knew I just had to share. I have posted before how much health benefits can be got from good loving sex [here] and the only thing better is to see it all visually displayed.

This infographic details the many benefits of a healthy sex and provides interesting statistics around this topic.

For example,  did you know that in a typical sex session lasting 25 minutes, men will on average burn 100 calories and women will burn 69?

A Typical Traditional Marriage List In Igboland - True or False?

Posted in: , , , ,

When I shared a bride price list last year here, I felt it was a bit on the moderate side since some of the items were like N200 and none cost more than N5,000. This is another Igbo traditional marriage list I just saw and the person that shared it said it was the typical list in all of Igboland.

I beg to disagree o, some of the exorbitiant quotes and included gifts brought tears to my eyes. I've never seen such a list before. I'm sure even the elders of the Brideprice app [here] haven't seen it before either.

Which part of Igboland does this list belong to? I think the ladies from that area need to boycott traditional weddings. Period! Unless all of them can find and marry billionaires like Dangote, of course.

Rick Ross Loses 100lbs in One Year, How Did He Achieve His Weight Loss?

Posted in: , , , ,

Rick Ross recently unveiled a slimmer body in his pictures shared on social media and has now also opened up on the process of his weight loss. And no, it is not Weight Watchers.

The rapper said it was a combination of a slight diet plan and a CrossFit exercise routine, and that he has been able to lose 100 pounds over the last year. Rick Ross used to have seizures some years ago and this led Reebok, whose brand he represents to introduce him to a trainer to help him lose weight.

Rick Ross explained in an interview:

I do this sh-t called CrossFit. I call it RossFit. Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, I call it ROSSFIT. Earlier this summer, Reebok had introduced me to a trainer, and what he turned me onto was — let’s say, for instance, if you got on the treadmill, and you did that sh-t for 30 minutes.

Career Choices - How Being a Nursing Professional Can Help You Touch Lives and Make a Difference

Posted in: , , ,

A nurse is more than just someone who helps a doctor with patients. Nurses are a line of communication for those who may have no one else to talk to. They can serve as a confidante for those who don't want the rest of the world to know why they are seeking care.

Inspire Hope in Others

As a nurse, you are the one who is going to talk to patients about their status, give them their medicine and otherwise be there when a person needs someone to talk to. If someone is going through a battle with cancer or a child is going through an illness, you can be there to give hope to that person.

There have been stories where nurses will hold a spa day inside a patient's room or just spend extra time talking to that person even when their shift is over. Just knowing that someone cares can provide the hope that a person needs to keep going.

Friday Man Candy - Drake. Shirtless. Selfie.

Drake Selfie

It does make one kinda speechless. Canadian rapper Drake shared a selfie of himself in the bathroom and with no shirt on. The thirst is real for some ladies right about now, lol.

Someone mentioned that the best thing they like about shirtless Drake is the lack of tattoos. Even our Peter PSquare has some. I don't mind tattoos myself, but give me a fit manly chest anytime, tattoos or nay.

Ladies which do you prefer, tattoos or none on a guy?
