As per my observation, white blonde women are sexually more capable n satisfying than Indian women, Is it correct? Does race effect sex performance?

No relationship: exists between the ability of women of different ethnicities, skin tone and hair color to "satisfy" men sexually. If you find "white blond women" more sexually attractive, the difference in the experience comes from you, not the woman herself. Dr. Anne ...Read more

Are daily masturbation-induced orgasms harmful to a woman's body / overall health?

Are daily masturbation-induced orgasms harmful to a woman's body / overall health?

Masturbation: No. If you overdo it and get irritation locally, best to cut back a bit. As a young adult, a healthy libido is to be expected. My concern is that if you rely on self stimulation to the exclusion of social interaction with your peer group, you could isolate and miss opportunities for relationships. If you have an enjoyable social life then i see no problem. ...Read more

Is looking at nude phtotos (ex: tumblr blogs) the same as porn?

Depends: There are many nude photos which qualify as art forms and even make their way into standard museums and magazines. If the display is to elicit erotic impulses in the viewer, then it is likely on the edge of porn. So it qualifies as porn being in the eye (and groins) of the beholder. ...Read more

Why do guys who are bald have much rounder and pointer heads than guys who don't get bald? Is skull growth a contributor to male pattern baldness?

Science: I like this question and i like that you are asking it. But, as a physician i can guarantee you that your hypothesis, that all balding men have a specific head shape, is incorrect. Men who are balding or are bald have every normal shape of head as any other population. Head shape in no way is a contributor to male pattern baldness. Great question though. ...Read more

Why do lots of my boomer friends look a lot heavier than their parents did at their age? Food? Exercise? Other?

Why do lots of my boomer friends look a lot heavier than their parents did at their age? Food? Exercise? Other?

Many reasons.: Thanks to vaccines & antibiotics, baby boomers are living longer & perhaps healthier with less infectious disease/illnesses. Chronic disease are developing later in age. Quality of life is much improved-less disability. Perhaps we should indeed thank medical technology and improve nutrition/public health initiatives (less tobacco use). Unfortunately, statistics reveal more obesity/sedentary ways. ...Read more

Opinions on what's a good fitness plan for 50 yr old man?

36 yo male/nutrition: Nutrition needs vary but high protein, good fats (avocado, good quality marine fish oil, etc), and low on the carbs can be helpful. If you are taking an over the counter multivitamin (even one for men) most have such a low amount of the ingredients on the label that they do not really support health. A natural medicine doctor or nutritionist can point you in the right direction. Lifestyle too! ...Read more

Depends on kind of: exercises that you do. Repeated crunches and heavy lifting are likely to increase the diastasis, but core training like push ups and planks and overall cardio conditioning should be helpful.

Current thinking...: is that you should do a mixture of 2:1 resistance training: cardio. Assuming you are healthy you should aim for high intensity resistance training where you are barely able to complete your last set of a given exercise. Ideal cardio would be high intensity interval training, where short bursts of ~30 seconds maximal effort are combined with recovery periods of 90-120 seconds. ...Read more
