"Sex without love is a meaningless experience, but as far as meaningless experiences go its pretty damn good." - Woody Allen

Did You Know...?

During a woman’s period, the opening of the cervix (Latin for “neck” or “nape of neck”) and uterus stretch slightly to allow the shedding of the endometrium. During this time, harmful sexually transmitted bacteria have easier access to the uterus, increasing the risk of serious pelvic infections. HIV is also more easily transmitted during a woman’s period.

Approximately 80 cases have been reported in medical literature of men born with two penises. A diphallus can present as either one organ that separates into two or as two distinct organs. The penises can be side by side, on top of each other, or in separate locations. Most men with diphallus are sterile.

Contrary to popular opinion, the word “fuck” is not an acronym for the phrase “Fornication Under Command of the King.” It is a very old word that is hard to trace because the editors of the initial Oxford English Dictionary considered the word taboo in 1893. It may have a Scandinavian origin, similar to the Norwegian word fukka, meaning to “copulate,” or the Swedish foka, meaning“to copulate, strike, push,”or fock, meaning “penis.”

Monthly Love Horoscope from Tarot.Com


ARIES (March 21 - April 19th)
Don't buy cheap things or waste your resources on quick thrills. Investing in yourself more thoughtfully makes you more desirable to others. Spending money to improve your body, your mind or to upgrade essential equipment adds value to your life and raises your self-esteem. Read the complete horoscope here...

TAURUS (April 20th - May 20th
Passionate Mars is still in your 5th House of Romance, adding more points to your desirability quotient. This energetic planet, though, is still moving retrograde, which can stir up interest in lovers from your past. Read the complete horoscope here...

GEMINI (May 21st - June 20th)
It's understandable if you feel like you're stuck in the past, especially while the Sun is in your secretive 12th House of Privacy until May 20. While getting attention may be more difficult until then, it also gives you a chance to step back from your situation to see it more objectively. Read the complete horoscope here...

CANCER (July 21st - July 22nd)
Love planet Venus is in an obscure part of your chart, which can slow down or complicate your personal life. She's in jittery Gemini, where it's hard to feel settled, even if you're in a long-term relationship. You probably need more space and some variety. Read the complete horoscope here...

LEO (July 23rd - August 22nd)
Maintaining respect in a position of authority while dallying with co-workers could create complications. This is especially likely as of May 15, when Venus shifts into reverse to begin a six-week retrograde period. You may meet people from you past or think about attractions that you've had in the workplace. Read the complete horoscope here...

VIRGO (August 23rd - September 22nd)
Patience can enrich your conversations with sweetness that pleases you and makes you more desirable to others. There is a risk, though, of some stubborn thinking in this bullish sign, so try to catch yourself in the act if you're too rigid in your thinking. Read the complete horoscope here...

LIBRA (September 23rd - October 22nd)
While discussions could help you improve a current alliance or give you a fresh perspective on yourself, too much talking can turn you in circles that don't lead you anywhere. So make sure your discussions are illuminating experiences that open your mind instead of roundabout conversations that take you in circles.Read the complete horoscope here...

SCORPIO (October 23rd - November 21st)
The month could start in a stressful way as your aggressive ruling planet Mars forms a challenging 90-degree square with the connective Lunar Nodes on May 1. This can make casual comments feel caustic, triggering unnecessary conflicts. Read the complete horoscope here...

SAGITTARIUS (November 22nd - December 21st)
he willful Sun's push into Gemini and your 7th House on May 20 makes romantic drama more attractive than usual. Dealing with a fast-talking (but not entirely sincere) person or making statements you can't back up can come from pushing too hard and too soon. Read the full horoscope here...

CAPRICORN ( December 22nd - January 21st)
On May 13, the Sun joins expansive and optimistic Jupiter in your 5th House of Romance, marking the middle of a five-day period when taking chances to go for the love you want can be rewarded. There is, however, a slight chance of becoming so hopeful that you reach too far or overlook minor matters that might have major effects.
Read the full horoscope here...

AQUARIUS (January 22nd - February 18th)
Exploring new fields of enjoyment, perhaps even in the arts, is meant to lighten your load and distract you from more pressing matters. This is not merely a means of avoiding difficult emotion, but it is an easy way to produce an adaptable attitude that helps you skirt hard issues so you can be happy right now instead of worrying about tomorrow.
Read the full horoscope here...

PISCES (February 19th - March 20th)
The magic of words can produce a sense of connection that goes beyond whatever is being said. Verbal Mercury's favorable alignment with your imaginative ruling planet Neptune on May 10 can salve wounds and inspire creative thinking.Read the complete horoscope here...
