Diet: I took the time to do as much research on this as I could. Apparently sperm and the genitals which have a tendency to be sweaty during the sexual experience odor/ taste is influenced by the individuals diet. The more meat intake, the more ammonia smelling/taste. More fruit and vegetables, the more aromatic and pleasant. Range of cents/taste was from popcorn, almonds, salty, to bland. Equivalent comments reflecting the vagina and vaginal secretion

A member asked:

Is it a good idea to nurse my baby to sleep?

2 doctor answers7 doctors weighed in
Dr. Scott Tomaine

No: The key to infant sleep is teaching your baby to fall asleep on his or her own. Infants who fall asleep at the breast, or in your arms, have trouble staying asleep for long periods and often have overall poor sleep. I recommend a good, stable bedtime routine, similar bedtime ( sometime between 7 and 9), and putting the baby in his or her crib before they are totally asleep. Be consistent.

Studies show an increase of sleep disturbance in infants fed to sleep by 400% during their first 4 years.

Surgery: The mainstay of treatment for penile cancer is early diagnosis and then surgery. Surgery consists of removing a portion of the penis. Depending if the cancer has spread to inguinal lymph nodes, radiation and chemotherapy may be options as well.
