I think, in many ways, a villain makes or breaks a story.
Having a hero is all well and dandy but, alas, heroes can be boring. They always represent the good — morality, compassion, ethics, all those lovely things which prevent society from breaking into outright anarchy, but ultimately the hero can be kinda boring. They’re constrained by the expectations of the ‘good’, by what is right and by the values upheld by society.
The villain, on the other hand, is not constrained by rules nearly as stringent — they have freer reign — they can play with what’s acceptable…
Ketamine is probably best known as an illicit party drug, but its history is far more rich and varied than just a new-ish cocaine-alternative.
‘Special K’ is an anaesthetic, most widely known as a horse-tranquilizer, even though it’s used medically on humans as well. It belongs to the class of drugs known as the hallucinogens and sits in the ‘dissociatives’ category, meaning its effects are that of disassociation (unsurprisingly).
Due to its sedative and psychedelic qualities, users report a ketamine high can have a variety of different effects depending on dose, setting and mindset. …

Socks in bed isn’t the sexiest thing in the world.
If you brave the foot-warmer style during sexy-funtime, you’ve either got to be very comfortable with your lover, despise your own feet or be one of those people that’s constantly cold.
As unfetching as the naked-but-with-socks look can be (although it might suit some people…), science has shown keeping your socks on during sex can help you reach orgasm.
A study from the University of Groningen found keeping your socks on during sex raised the probability of reaching orgasm from 50% to 80%(!). …
I’ve always been a night-owl. As a toddler I’d be wide awake at 2am and enjoy the deepest slumber during mid-morning, much to the dismay of my parents who both had jobs to wake up for.
In school I was never quite switched on until about 10–10.30am each morning, meaning whatever class I had at 9am would go completely over my head.
As a teenager I relished sleeping in until midday and at university I would regularly opt to spend nights in the library, often not starting my study until post 6pm.
A common theme persisted across my life and…
Some studies say as many as 90% of women can’t reach orgasm through penetrative sex alone.
That’s a massive number, and if you are one of those women (or know someone who is), you’ll be pleased to know that getting there is very likely within your reach.
Achieving a vaginal orgasm, whether you’re self-experimenting or giving to a lover, is firstly about understanding female physiology.
I’ve often heard people say “the world is full of bad news.” It’s true; bad news does seem to be everywhere but that doesn’t mean good news doesn’t exist, it just doesn’t get nearly as much airtime. Bad news spreads like wildfire, but good news only reaches a few people and then seems to stop.
It’s because of Negativity Bias; the natural human tendency to focus on the bad side rather than the good.
It’s obvious if you think about it. Recall a time you received a compliment. Maybe a lover told you how beautiful you are or a stranger…
This Gamestop situation is fascinating. Gamestop is a computer-game selling US retailer who have struggled the past year, partly due to pandemic, partly because they’re a legacy business that sells physical games and partly for other reasons.
Gamestop’s share price didn’t really move much for the first 8 months of 2020; it traded between $3–5 per share, but that changed post Sept when it went up to around $14/share by November. This month (Jan 2020) it skyrocketed to an all-time-high of around $340/share.
That’s an 8500% rise. But what gives? …

Cocaine is probably the world’s most popular hard drug. Produced mostly in Colombia and consumed by the rest of the world, especially the US and UK, the cocaine market has an estimated global value of $120billion.
Where does the characteristic euphoric & energetic high come from though? And why can it be so addictive?
Cocaine’s neural mechanism is fascinating and affects the brain more deeply than we first realised.
