GAMERS DON’T CARE ABOUT SEX There’s a stereo­type that hard­core male gamers are all so­cially awk­ward losers who can’t get a girl. How­ever, it seems that this isn’t true. They are not losers at love – just not very in­ter­ested. A 2017 study com­pared the sex­ual health of male gamers with men in the gen­eral pop­u­la­tion and found that com­par­a­tively speak­ing, gamers were less in­ter­ested in sex and had lower li­bidos. On the plus side, they were less likely to suf­fer from pre­ma­ture ejac­u­la­tion too — or at least that’s what they say. The study par­tic­i­pants self-re­ported ex­pe­ri­ences of sex­ual func­tion­ing, fre­quency, de­sire and pre­ma­ture ejac­u­la­tion. Of course it is en­tirely likely that all the men tak­ing part in the study hedged a bit and the truth is not here.

BDSM CLUB FOR PRINCE­TON Prince­ton Univer­sity is the lat­est Ivy League col­lege to open a stu­dent-govern­ment ap­proved BDSM club. Columbia, Cor­nell and Har­vard uni­ver­si­ties all have kink clubs too. Un­sur­pris­ingly, not every­one is happy about that. The club, named Prince­ton Plays, has been ap­proved and is thus el­i­gi­ble to ap­ply for univer­sity fund­ing. will hold ‘classes’ and work­shops on and off cam­pus.


Ugh, this is aw­ful. A 69 year old Aus­tralian man in Cam­bo­dia has been ar­rested for al­legedly lock­ing up three women and de­mand­ing sex. James Bernard King re­port­edly locked up his girl­friend, her sis­ter and niece and re­fused to let them leave un­less they each had sex with him. It ap­pears the women did not ac­qui­esce, but pleaded with King for four hours be­fore they were able to con­tact a fam­ily mem­ber who alerted the po­lice. King, who was in the coun­try on a tourist visa, will be pros­e­cuted in Cam­bo­dia.



If you are try­ing to get preg­nant you will soon learn that there are as many myths and old wives’ tales about con­cep­tion as there are about con­tra­cep­tion.

But cou­ples keen to have a baby are gen­er­ally will­ing to try any­thing that might help, how­ever far­fetched. Here are the “hacks” some peo­ple swear will in­crease your chances of wel­com­ing a new fam­ily mem­ber.

Shov­el­ling down McDon­alds fries and eat­ing dark choco­late (yum), as well as pineap­ple and pineap­ple juice. Not all of these are food-based (a pity). Oth­ers in­clude dry Jan­uary, keep­ing your feet warm, wear­ing green, pierc­ing your left nos­tril and switch­ing off all phones and the Wi-Fi af­ter dark. Well at least they are harm­less!

Let's not talk about sex: gamers aren't feel­ing very randy
