Researchers Find a Cure for Man’s Mysterious Orgasm Allergy


Young-Man-Screaming-O-Face-Masturbating-Laptop-Bedroom

Most articles concerning men and orgasms have to do with curbing it—staving off the Big O to extend pleasure, or so their female partners can climax first.

One 25-year-old man avoided them for a very different, and unfortunate reason: He was allergic to his own orgasms, according to a recent study.

“He dreaded ejaculation,” researchers wrote in the journal Urology Case Reports. Doing so would invite a torrent of symptoms: low energy, weakness, mental fog and trouble finding the right word. Talk about mind-blowing sex—in all the wrong ways.

The poor fellow began experiencing the condition at 16, when he noticed that masturbating or having sex triggered these woes. “Onset of symptoms could be immediate or delayed by 2-3 days, and would last 1-2 weeks,” the researchers wrote. As a result, the unnamed man avoided social interactions when the symptoms hit. Naturally, this affected his work and school life.

What this man had was post-orgasmic illness syndrome, or POIS. It’s rare and tough to treat. We’ve only known about POIS since 2002, when it was discovered by Marcel D. Waldinger and his team. 

Waldinger defined it as more than an allergy: it’s a systemic auto-immune response to seminal plasma, or semen. He also noted many physicians’ lack of POIS knowledge, which might lead many to dismiss symptoms as more psychological than physical, and refer their patients to a psychologist for treatment.

[RELATED1]

However, the condition and its symptoms are very much physical, and can include flu-like illness; depression; having irritated, burning eyes with blurred vision; dry mouth and muscle weakness or pain. They often emerge within a half-hour after orgasm. As POIS discoverer Waldinger found, many of his 45 subjects ended up avoiding sex and masturbation, resigned to a chaste life. He tried injecting subjects with diluted samples of their own semen as treatment, but this didn’t work.

The researchers’ subject previously tried many remedies, including diet, antihistamines, supplements and niacin. Those didn’t work either.  

The culprit with their subject, they determined, was a testosterone deficiency. Injections of hCG — dubbed “the pregnancy hormone,” but also used to help men boost testosterone production— three times a week over six weeks showed an increase in total testosterone.

And, his symptoms diminished significantly. He could orgasm without ailment. He was happy and able to masturbate regularly—and chase sex that was explosive, but didn’t blow up his life.

“Importantly, he no longer experienced dread with anticipated sexual activity,” the researchers concluded.

That’s what we call a happy ending.

Epi 2.0: Small Earthquake or Epic Natural Body Builder


Epi 2.0: Small Earthquake or Epic Natural Body Builder

Photo provided by Strong Supplements via Getty Images

With the growing demand for plant-based options on menus everywhere, it was only a matter of time before the trend spilled over into other aspects of the fitness arena. While botanically-derived supplements are hardly new (check out our Top 10 Natural Anabolics for more on that), there are some that bring innovation to the forefront and find ways to elevate their ingredients past the rest.

EPI 2.0 Available At Strong Supplements - Click Here

Vital Alchemy’s fan-favorite Epi 2.0 proposes to be exactly that – a plant-based muscle maker that helps reduce the body’s natural limitations on growth. The major players in Epi 2.0 are epicatechin and quercetin, flavonoids found in cocoa and tea, that have some exciting potential for those who feel stuck in their muscle building journey.

Epicatechin, a well-known compound in the industry for growth, has long played second fiddle to other ingredients because of the body’s inability to fully absorb and use it. That’s where quercetin steps in, by helping to inhibit the pathways that block epicatechin from working while also working synergistically with the epicatechin to help reduce inflammation and increase cardiovascular health 3.

Once the epicatechin is able to function at its full capacity, it begins to help raise follistatin levels, which in turn decreases myostatin, the single greatest factor in blocking your body’s ability to build muscle. Myostatin essentially determines the genetic limit at which your body stops additional growth of muscle fibers 5, and in one study epicatechin supplementation not only increased the presence of follistatin and the follistatin/myostatin ratio, but also significantly increased muscle mass when combined with resistance training 2.

In fact, epicatechin has also gained traction with women as a way to help reverse the aging process while contributing to greater strength and muscle tone 1. And Epi 2.0 ups the ante again by including sodium caprate, a compound that has been shown to help increase the permeability of larger molecules through the intestinal walls 4. Basically sodium caprate helps the body further absorb both the epicatechin and quercetin for maximum availability.

Will Epi 2.0 by Vital Alchemy help you reclaim your body’s natural muscle production and help you say sayonara to your genetic limitations? Get yours now at Strong Supplement Shop to find out.

Sugar May Affect the Brain Like a Drug, Study Finds


Measuring-Spoons-Sugar

It’s common knowledge that sugary foods aren’t exactly good for us, but that doesn’t stop countless people from overindulging in them. Those with a sweet tooth wouldn’t hesitate to call sugar addicting, and new research published in Scientific Reports just might support that notion. 

Past studies on the notion that sugar is pretty much a drug have had mixed results, with some experts insisting that food can’t actually be addicting. But this new study, which was done on pigs, found that sugar can alter the systems in the brain that are affected by addictive drugs. Basically, when the brain is flooded with pleasure from something addictive, we learn to repeat whatever behavior made us feel good. And when scientists gave the pigs access to a sugar solution for one hour on 12 consecutive days, they saw changes in the way their brains’ reward systems worked right away. 

“After just 12 days of sugar intake, we could see major changes in the brain’s dopamine and opioid systems,” said lead study author Michael Winterdahl, associate professor at the Department of Clinical Medicine at Aarhus University in Denmark. “In fact, the opioid system, which is that part of the brain’s chemistry that is associated with well-being and pleasure, was already activated after the very first intake.” 

The study was done on pigs because previous studies have relied on rats, and pigs have more complex brains than rodents. Scientists used PET scans to see the effects that the sugar intake had on their brains. Why not humans, you ask? Well, too many things trigger our brains’ reward systems. 

“They are influenced by what we eat, whether we play games on our phones, or if we enter a new romantic relationship in the middle of the trial, with potential for great variation in the data,” Winterdahl explained. He’d actually set out to debunk the idea that sugar is addictive, and he was surprised at the findings. But it seems that there’s something to the common belief that sugar is addictive. 

“We’re all looking for the rush from dopamine,” he said, “and if something gives us a better or bigger kick, then that’s what we choose.”

Why CEO Pessimism Over the Economy Just Reached a Record High

The start of a year often promises clean slates and new beginnings — but for CEOs across the world, lingering uncertainties over trade tensions and geopolitical challenges have painted a darker picture for 2020.

A recently published PricewaterhouseCoopers study found that, for the first time, more than half of the world’s CEOs predicted a slower economy in the year ahead. According to the report, 53% of executive chiefs believe the rate of global GDP growth will decline — up from 29% in 2019 and just 5% in 2018.

In contrast, the number of leaders that anticipated an increase in the rate of economic growth plunged from 42% last year to just 22% in 2020. It marked the highest level of pessimism since the firm began tracking such data in 2012. (The survey included responses from nearly 1,600 CEOs from 83 countries across the world and launched at the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland.)

“The drop in confidence in economic growth is not surprising — even if the scale of the change in mood is,” said Bob Moritz, chairman of the PwC Network. “These challenges facing the global economy are not new; however, the scale of them and the speed at which some of them are escalating is new.”

The observation was particularly significant in North America, Western Europe and the Middle East: A respective 63%, 59% and 57% of business leaders from those regions expected lower global growth this year. CEOs also shared that they had lower confidence in their own outlooks for their organizations, with only 27% indicating that they’re “very confident” in their prospects for revenue gains in 2020.

In another study released early this month, The Conference Board found that a possible recession ranks as the top external concern for the second year in a row of global business chiefs and other C-suite executives. Such fears even jumped to the top of American CEOs’ list of worries, the think tank reported — surpassing cybersecurity, which was their biggest concern in 2019 but fell to sixth for 2020. Heightened competition took second place, while global trade tied global political instability for the third spot, as President Donald Trump continued to fight much-criticized tariff battles against foreign rivals including China, while concerns over Brexit and unrest in Hong Kong rattled markets.

Despite the pessimism, PwC still foresees opportunities for CEOs who confront uncertainty, versus taking defensive actions such as reducing investments, pulling back from technology and shying away from challenges.

“With an agile strategy, a sharp focus on the changing expectations of stakeholders and the experience many have built up over the last 10 years in a challenging environment, business leaders can weather an economic downturn and continue to thrive,” Moritz added.

Maison Margiela and Reebok Pair Their Iconic Silhouettes to Create a Head-Turning Collab

The worlds of high fashion and athletic footwear have collided quite a bit as of late, and today, Maison Margiela revealed its latest addition to the trend: a head-turning Reebok collaboration.

Maison Margiela showcased the new look on the runway today during its Paris Couture Week presentation, a silhouette that marries its classic split-toe Tabi with the aggressive and futuristic Reebok Instapump Fury. The collab, according to the French luxury fashion house, plays on the idea of analyzing “the conversation between humanity and technology in the digital age.” Maison Margiela proclaimed the look the “statement shoe for the age of the cyber-industrial revolution.”

The look features the signature split-toed calfskin upper of the Tabi, the Pump tech from Reebok and sit atop reimagined sneaker-style midsoles and outsoles (one flat and the other heeled). The collab is also executed with classic Reebok technologies such as Hexalite cushioning and a Graphlite carbon shank. Aesthetically speaking, the shoe features both Maison Margiela and Reebok’s logos — the luxury brand’s stitched in white on the back of the upper and the athletic company’s Vector branding embroidered on the heel.

The look will debut in six colorways, which includes nods to the original looks of the sneaker delivered by Reebok starting in 1994.

Retail Store Closures: All the Companies That Are Downsizing in 2020

Whether it’s still described as a full-on retail apocalypse, or a sign of firms becoming more efficient, the slew of store closures across the industry continues to drag on.

Nationwide chains, specialty brands and designer clothiers are only some of the casualties this year, as shifting consumer demands and increasing pressure from e-commerce have forced the imminent closures of hundreds of brick-and-mortar stores.

This month alone, four big names in the fashion industry have collectively already announced an estimated 140 outposts headed for the chopping block, whether a result of business restructuring or changes in ownership.

Here, FN compiles a list of retailers turning off the lights in 2020.

Express

The apparel and accessories retailer has announced that roughly 100 outposts will shutter by 2022 as part of its “fleet rationalization” plan. Nine of those were already closed last year, with another 31 locations expected to shut down this month, an additional 35 by the end of January 2021 and the remainder throughout the following year. As of November, Express had 411 mall-based locations and 215 outlet stores.

JCPenney

Another six of the department store chain’s stores are set to shutter this year as it continues to carry out its turnaround plan. The Plano, Texas-based firm confirmed the closures of a half-dozen outposts: Southgate Mall in Missoula, Mont.; Myrtle Beach Mall in Myrtle Beach, S.C.; Chapel Hill Mall in Akron, Ohio; North Hills Shopping Center in Raleigh, N.C.; Tulsa Promenade in Tulsa, Okla.; and Green Acres Mall in Valley Stream, N.Y. The locations are expected to close on April 24. JCPenney currently operates about 850 stores.

Opening Ceremony

Co-founders and co-creative directors Carol Lim and Humberto Leon announced the closures of all Opening Ceremony stores by year’s end. The move follows the brand’s acquisition in mid-January by New Guards Group, a streetwear-focused firm that licenses brands, including Off-White, Palm Angels and Heron Preston. As part of the purchase, Opening Ceremony will shift from being a multi-brand retailer to focus solely on its namesake brand. (Leon and Lim said they have plans to return to brick-and-mortar retail in the future “but with a different mindset and perspective.”)

Macy’s

Macy’s has confirmed the closures of roughly 30 stores. Over the next couple of months, the retailer expects to hold liquidation sales as it downsizes its fleet of brick-and-mortar outposts. The list includes its locations in Macon Mall in Georgia; University Mall in Illinois; Northgate Mall, Ohio Valley Mall and Stow-Kent Plaza in Ohio; Rivergate Mall in Tennessee; and Cascade Mall, 54 East Main St. and 300 Pine St. — its Seattle flagship — in Washington. (One Bloomingdale’s location is also scheduled to shut down.) A spokesperson said that Macy’s “regularly review[s] our store portfolio” and will provide an update on the store closures at its investor day on Feb. 5.

Schiaparelli’s Measuring Tape-Inspired Shoes Let the Big Toe Hang Free

While admittedly the Couture Week focus is always the frocks, for Schiaparelli creative director Daniel Roseberry, the collection he showed on Monday at Paris Couture Week also measured up when it came to the footwear.

Sandals featured tape measure detailing on the straps with Schiaparelli Paris embossed in gold lettering. So far, so surreal. But they also came with reverse comma heel, extreme asymmetric toe shape and a reverse strap situation, so that the big toe went commando while the strap looped around the other four.

The house has an illustrious history of the surreal, and Roseberry is continuing Elsa Schiaparelli’s legacy from top to toe. However, rather than simply plugging the archives, he’s way more meta. He’ll take an idea and rework it in an entirely different context, giving it a surreal spin all of his own.

The measuring tape idea comes from the bottle created by the house in 1937 when it launched its “Shocking” fragrance — the Tom Ford “F***ing Fabulous” of its time.  A tape measure served as the label, and the bottle itself was shaped like a woman’s bust, modeled on the American actress Mae West. It came in a box sheathed in  ‘shocking’ pink and gold paper.

Jimmy Choo Partners With Kaia Gerber on a Capsule Collection With ’90s Vibes

Kaia Gerber may have been born in 2001, but she takes major fashion inspiration from the ’90s — and that’s reflected in her new Jimmy Choo capsule.

The supermodel’s California coastal cool meets ’90s grunge style serves as the basis for the four-piece range, designed by Gerber in collaboration with longtime Jimmy Choo creative director Sandra Choi.

“I jumped at the chance to work with Sandra on my dream capsule of shoe and boot styles, it was such an honor to be able to brainstorm creatively and I am so thrilled with the result,” Gerber stated in a release. “I wanted an effortless on/off duty wardrobe that could work with any look in a color palette that talked to my Cali roots while adapting to any city, at any time, anywhere.”

The capsule includes two kitten heels — the python-print K-Slingback pump and leather K-Slide sandal — and two boots, the K-Jesse suede Western boot and the K-Cruz snake-print combat.

Since starring in her first Jimmy Choo campaign three seasons ago, Gerber has adopted the $1,095 Cruz combat boot as her go-to — and this, Choi said, is what first sparked discussion of a potential collaboration.

“Off the catwalk, Kaia has a signature personal style that is the epitome of effortless cool. From her first campaign with us, Kaia has worn our Cruz combat, it became her go to and that led us to have a conversation about collaborating on her capsule shoe wardrobe,” Choi explained.

The capsule will be available online and in select stores beginning on Feb. 2. Fifteen percent of all sales will go to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, an organization Gerber has worked with since she was just 5 years-old.

In addition to the collaboration, Gerber is back as Jimmy Choo’s spring ’20 campaign star, appearing in a series of images photographed by Craig McDean.

Pamela Costantini and Domitilla Rapisardi modelled shoes from their new label, Iindaco. The Italian-made brand, which makes its debut this year, is sure to be a hit among the Instagram crowd, thanks to look-at-me colors.

Rapisardi showed off a pair of patterned green pumps with a subtle, on-trend square toe, which popped against her black leather midi skirt and opaque tights.

Elsewhere, Brazilian blogger Helena Bordon looked chic in a Chanel jumpsuit, which she wore under a black-and-white coat. Bordon added a pop to the ensemble with her shoes, choosing purple suede pumps from FN’s 2019 Designer of the Year, Amina Muaddi. The pumps featured Muaddi’s signature martini glass-shaped heel and a sparkling embellishment at the toe.

With Chanel being one of the top shoes on the couture calendar, it’s no surprise that several guests stepped out in the brand’s shoes. The French house’s shoes offered a monochrome counter to the colors spotted elsewhere on the streets, coming in black-and-white with subtle branding.

Zion Williamson Will Wear This Air Jordan Sneaker During His NBA Debut Tonight

Zion Williamson, one of the most hyped rookies in NBA history, is making his pro debut with the New Orleans Pelicans tonight. And Jordan Brand is lacing him with a crazy Air Jordan 24 PE to launch his promising career. 

When Williamson and the Pelicans face the San Antonio Spurs at home at 9:30 p.m., the baller will wear the “Bayou Boys” player edition Air Jordan 34. (The No. 1 overall selection in the 2019 NBA Draft helped Jordan Brand reveal the shoe in September.) The bold look is predominantly gold and bronze with hits of orange, and the words “Bayou Boys” are written across the heels.

“When you put on some Jordans fresh out the box, people know what it is. The 34 delivers on all of that. I felt the benefit of the Eclipse Plate from the moment I put it on,” Williamson said of the sneaker in a statement. “A shoe that has this much technology, while staying minimal, makes a difference in my game, whether I’m flying down the court or dunking.”

Although this is the only PE for Williamson that Jordan Brand shared today, the company hinted that many more are to come for the rest of the 2019-20 season. 

Rosario Dawson’s Net Worth: Black Actresses Are Underpaid

Best known for appearing in movies such as ‘Rent,’ ‘Grindhouse’ and ‘Sin City,’ Rosario Dawson has an estimated net worth of $16 million. However, in a 2015 interview with MTV News, she made clear that women aren’t paid enough.

“I’ve worked on a lot of projects where the male lead or even the male and the female lead will get paid millions of dollars and then everyone else gets SAG minimum payment,” she said.

“You’re privileged to work with this director and these actors, but it’s a Catch-22. You need to make money so you need to have work, and to be able to get work you have to get to a place where your name means something and you make these sacrifices — like, ‘OK, I’ll do this for nothing, but hopefully the movie will do well and it will help me out later.’ So even talking about equity, there’s a lot that comes in between it”.

“If it was just women getting paid less than men then that would just be one thing, but even among women, especially according to race and privilege, there are a lot of women who are getting paid more than even some men are,” the actress noted.

“It’s a very complex situation when you think about what are black women making in comparison to white women, what are Latin women making, what are Asian women making in comparison, and it gets even more convoluted.”

Just one woman of color (Colombian-American actress Sofia Vergara) made Forbes’ 2019 list of the 10 highest-paid actresses.

In January 2019, New Jersey Senator Cory Booker’s girlfriend wore a random look from her own fashion label Studio One Eighty Nine (Studio 189) to the premiere of Miss Bala at Regal LA Live Stadium in Los Angeles.

On January 22, 2020, Deadline reported that Rosario Dawson will play the lead role of Alma in DMZ, a pilot from Warner Bros. Television for HBO Max. The series is based on the DC comic book series from Brian Wood and will be helmed by Ava DuVernay who will executive produce alongside showrunner and writer Roberto Patino.

One of the highest-paid black actresses in the world, Rosario was reportedly paid $1 million for her portrayal of an HIV-positive heroin addict and stripper, Mimi Marquez, in the 2005 American musical drama “Rent”.

In April 2015, the American actress attended the premiere of Netflix’s Marvel’s Daredevil at Regal Cinemas L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California.

The then 35-year-old American actress, singer, and writer sported a colorful dress from the Roksanda Ilincic Spring 2015 collection.

How Reese Witherspoon and Beyonce Started New-Found Friendship

It’s quite surprising that Reese Witherspoon and Beyonce weren’t friends in the past. They have been in the industry for many years now, and they have built successful careers both as entrepreneurs and entertainers.

Moreover, they also have the same circle of friends in Hollywood. It wasn’t until this year, however, that the two built a new power friendship.

Reese and Beyonce’s 2020 Golden Globe encounter

It all started at this year’s Golden Globe ceremony. Dressed in a custom Roland Mouret gown with Tiffany & Co. jewelry, Reese Witherspoon mustered up the courage to ask power couple Beyonce and Jay-Z for some of their champagne after their table ran out of water.

Of course, the two gladly shared their Armand de Brignac champagne.

Reese’s The Morning Show co-star Jennifer Aniston later posted a photo on her Instagram story, showing herself, Reese and producer Kristin Hahn raising their glasses.

She captioned the photo: “Reese!? This is one of the many reasons I love you. We ran out of water at our table. So naturally, she asked Jay Z and Beyonce for a glass of their champagne.”

Four days after the encounter, Reese received a case of Armand de Brignac champagne from Bey and Jay-Z. The package came with a signed note from the couple that read, “More water, from J & B.”

Reese shared her reaction to her Instagram story. She also posted a video with her mom, Betty, opening a bottle at 11:30 in the morning.

This came just right after Reese flew back to Los Angeles from New York, where she attended the New York Film Critics Circle Awards.

Wearing a floral-embroidered dress from Andrew GN’s Autumn/Winter collection, Reese presented Laura Dern with the Best Supporting Actress award for her work both in Marriage Story and Little Women.

She teamed the monochrome outfit with Chopard jewels and a pair of Saint Laurent ‘Zoe’ pumps in cream leather with contrasting black ankle straps.

Jay-Z owns 100 percent of Armand de Brignac, also known as Ace of Spades, after buying the champagne brand in 2014. Prior to acquiring the label, Jay-Z introduced Ace of Spades in his music video for Show Me What You Got in 2006.

Reese receives Ivy Park collection from Beyonce

To celebrate their burgeoning friendship, Beyonce sent another surprise package to Reese just a week after sending her the champagne.

The actress shared an Instagram video of herself wheeling a huge package down her driveway. She’s trying to guess what’s inside the box with her mom, who actually thought that it might be a motorcycle.

After unsnapping the cover, Reese slipped inside the box and revealed that Bey sent her a ton of clothes from her new Ivy Park x Adidas collection. She even modeled some of the outfits in the video, which she captioned: “Does this officially make me the newest member of the #Beyhive?” She added: “Thank you, @Beyonce for the #IvyPark swag!”

Putting aside Bey’s activewear clothing collection, Reese graced the 2020 Screen Actors Guild Awards red carpet dressed in a floor-length embellished Celine gown.

The 43-year-old actress was at the event to represent HBO’s Big Little Lies, which was nominated for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series.

Reese sparkled in the black column dress adorned with black sequins, beads, and crystals. It also has a silver crystal-embellished looped shoulder strap that created an asymmetric neckline and a cutout across the chest. Her legs were on display as the dress also features a sexy thigh-high split.

Reese looked beautiful as always. Makeup artist Molly Stern applied mascara, eyeliner, a hint of brown eyeshadow, a swipe of red lipstick, and matching blush. Hairstylist Lona Vigi simply styled Reese’s hair straight and swept over to one side.

Stylist Petra Flannery added more sparkle to Reese’s look with diamond jewelry by Harry Winston. She wore emerald-cut diamond studs, a Diamond Links bracelet, a Crossover Diamond ring, and a River Diamond ring.  

For her feet, she wore a pair of Celine sandals in black suede and metallic silver leather. Charlize Theron wore the same pair at the Critics’ Choice Awards last week.
