Well this is … bad … A new survey found that 1 in 2 people in relationships say their current partner is the worst sex they’ve ever had. That’s right – half of the people surveyed said the person they are with is lousy in bed. Sounds like the next step here is for these people to communicate better…
The same survey asked respondents if they’d ever injured themselves during the act. 57% of those who had injured themselves while doing it said it happened while trying to do it in the shower.

Guys, do you think you know what women want? A new study of more than 60,000 women from all over the world found that there is one thing that women overwhelming want in a partner. Here’s a hint – it’s not six-pack abs or a seven-figure salary. 90% of the women surveyed said that kindness is the most attractive trait a significant other can have. (PS I Love You)

The CDC says that if you’re vaccinated, you’re basically OK to go about “normal” life without worrying about masks, social distancing, avoiding crowds, etc. But not everyone is ready yet.
Some folks are still really worried about getting COVID, even though the odds are very, very low for vaccinated people. Experts say that’s natural, especially for people who generally have a low tolerance toward risk. They also note that all the media coverage and fear-based messaging of the past year has left people feeling anxious.
If you’re one of those people, there are ways you can cope:
  • Seek out positive messages, like how infection rates are plummeting.
  • Take things slow. Re-enter “normal” life a little bit at a time.
  • Keep wearing a mask and using hand sanitizer if it helps you feel more comfortable.
  • Find someone you trust to talk about your feelings with. Maybe even a professional.
  • Limit your exposure to media and social media that will trigger feelings of anxiety.
The important thing to remember is that feeling this way doesn’t mean you’re weak or that there’s anything wrong with you. (Medical News Today)
