Individuals of whom used methamphetamine often report high sexual drive and desire. These findings have constructed the running hypothesis that methamphetamine can alter motivational processes usually in regards to sexual behavior. The purpose behind this research has been used to see the effects of psycho-stimulants on sexual desire in male quail. The goal of the study was to extend the past research by finding the effect of chronic pre-exposure to methamphetamine on sexual conditioning to find out whether or not this effect was evident after an extended withdrawal period (Bolin, 2012).
Being an adolescent is a pivotal and experimental phase for most people. During these years, people are prone to innumerable forms of stressors in their lives. It is not uncommon for this group to face victimization by parents, peers, and so-called friends during their daily lives. Dealing with common stressors may influence teenagers to participate in strain-relieving activities . . .some of which are not always legal. Underage drinking and illicit drug abuse alone are two expanding problems plaguing teens. More often than not, these two behaviors are done simultaneously. This poses an even greater threat to the mental and physical health of those who decide to engage in substance abuse. On the contrary, support groups exist to aid in minimizing risky teen behavior by offering an alternative social environment. Lowered cigarette use, consumption of alcohol, drug misuse, and an overall healthier state are outcomes of an established support group for LGBT students; the positive impression of these groups implemented in schools is reason enough to acknowledge their importance and also encourage expansion into schools that do not have them (Heck et al., 2014).
Katie great job on your discussion post. I have to agree with you, the author was all over the place. I too read this article but felt it was very confusing so I decided not to write my discussion based upon this article. I understand he was talking about the drug Ambien however, he went from comparing it to Ecstasy and LSD then abruptly went to talk about how Eminem and Coldplay use it. Honestly, this is where I lost interest in the article. I also agree that there was no closure. He left me wondering what he was trying to tell us. His thoughts must have been all over the place as it shows in his writing. I found it funny that you thought he might be on something because I too had a similar thought. From his writing, I wondered if he too
Summary: Chapter 20 discusses the ongoing study of Ecstasy and examining the culture in America. This participant-observation study lasted for about 15 months, observing the use of club drugs, and club culture in Florida. The research focuses on the emotional state of individuals who ingest MDMA/Ecstasy, the local market for such drugs, and the dialect of this drug culture. Because of its ability to induce an intense physiologically and psychologically euphoric state without the stigma associated with drugs like crack cocaine or heroin, many feel they can walk away from this drug or take it as needed.
An Aphrodisiac is defined a substance such as foods, drinks, or drugs, that cause or increase sexual desire (Aphrodisiacs, n.d.). This paper will investigate whether aphrodisiacs pose a mental or physical stimulation on the human body. It has been recorded that in multiple points of history, many things were considered aphrodisiac, some of these things include potatoes. Aphrodisiacs have Greek origins, deriving from the Greek word aphryodisiakos meaning sexual gem with aphrodisiac properties, from aphrodisiac heterosexual pleasures form the neuter plural of aphrodisios of Aphrodite; greek goddess of love and fertility (Aphrodisiacs, n.d.). The first aphrodisiac recorded in human history was body odor, and potions were sold in ancient Rome. Aphrodisiacs were considered a threat to chastity after the Roman Empire ended, which prompted the church to outlaw several aphrodisiacs. Western civilizations such as the Incans and Aztecs used aphrodisiacs for reproductive purposes and Asia utilized plants and insects as aphrodisiacs in order to increase their sexual libido. Aphrodisiacs have shown to be dynamic in culture and practices, and also in the utilization within diverse groups of people. Aphrodisiacs remain a topic of study for researches today, as they explore how various senses of the body affect sexual arousal. Asia is believed to be the top consumer of aphrodisiacs, while other countries believe the concept of Aphrodisiacs to be a
When one thinks back to a happy moments of their life, he or she is overcome with a feeling as if they are going to burst. What he felt was ecstasy. Over time, the word ecstasy has been modified, which can be seen through its etymology. Throughout this paper, ecstasy will be defined, explained, and compared to the words that we commonly use today. It will clarify the word by exploring its many meanings throughout history. I have chosen this word because I want to write about a word that displays happiness. I originally chose the word bliss, but I wanted a word that showed more intense emotion. Ecstasy, an overwhelming feeling of great happiness or joyful excitement.
Death: perceived by some as imminent, and others terrifying. One shall choose what to believe once death introduces himself: oblivion or ecstasy. Clara May, soon to face this decision, was apathetic.
It was my first horse show. The crowd clapped and cheered as the first competitor entered the course. I felt like the time wasn’t passing, I could only see one competitor entering and never going out, but I knew the time was getting closer. I got on the horse and rode rapidly to the paddock. I was nervous, I could feel butterflies in the stomach, but I knew I could finish that course. So I started trotting, then galloping, and I went to the paddock jump.
There are certainly many different ‘types’ of feminists with varying beliefs on various topics. Pornography is one of the most widely disputed of these topics, and has long caused controversy among feminists. Two clear, and distinctly different, sides have been taken by Andrea Dworkin as well as Linda Williams.
Francesca, Alfonso, and Stefan made some last minute preparations to their testimony while waiting for Surina in the portico. Nevertheless, they had little enthusiasm for the grim proceedings. As soon as Surina joined them, they reluctantly followed a steady stream of Gnaritusonians to a door marked with an Amphitheater sign. The amphitheater usually hosted the town hall meetings but served today as a makeshift courtroom with enough seats for a thousand spectators. Surprisingly, only the four seats in the front row remained vacant. The audience spoke in hushed whispers, staring in eager anticipation at a giant black screen dominating the wall directly in front of them. Francesca led the way down the gently sloping stairs, past the semicircular
Does your boyfriend think he makes you orgasm every time you guys have sex due to a fake orgasm? Yes? You are not the only one. A fake orgasm is the result of a person who pretended to have an orgasm without actually experiencing one. It usually means simulating or acting out behaviors, such as face contortions, loss of voluntary muscle control, spasms of the feet and hands, and vocal sounds such as screaming, laughing, crying, and moaning. ( . It can also be verbal hints that orgasm occurred. Gayle Brewer of the University of Central Lancashire and Colin Hendrie of the University of Leeds conducted a study to show that not all orgasms are real. In this study they asked 71 women between the ages of 18 and 48 a series of questions. In Brewer’s
Many years ago, when the gods were rulers of land and sea, a herd of horses lived on the island of Crete. This herd of horses had inhabited the island for generations and were peaceful creatures, grazing off the land and disturbing nobody. Often, Zeus would ask of favours from the herd and each time the horses would agree to carry out any task Zeus asked of them. The leader of the herd was a mare who went by the name of Aikaterina. Like her name, meaning ‘pure’, Aikaterina’s coat was of a pure and beautiful white and she was, by far, the most beautiful mare in the land. Aikaterina had three sons: Dion, Irenaeus and Pegasus, all whom she adored dearly. Pegasus was the youngest son and although he loved his life with the herd he longed to stray
Victoire was awake all night contemplating what to do. She had finally risen but as soon as she woke up last nights thoughts were rushing through her mind. Should she tell Teddy before or after the match? Would she still have the courage to tell him how she feels after such a tense game? Gryffindor vs. Slytherin! Would she be able to catch the snitch in time? And would Teddy be a good enough beater? "What am I supposed to do?" Victoire mumbled to herself. This was the moment when her best friend Nina woke up and heard what she was saying. "About what Victoire?" Nina whispered back, whilst slowly waking up. "Umm, nothing! Don't worry! Pretend I didn't say anything okay? I'm just nervous about the Quidditch match." Victoire said, her voice rising
Blink, blink, a quick glimpse of the area relays the relevant message to the brain and in a quick second the processing of the information is complete and my legs respond to the relayed message and they start moving in the direction of the empty seat. The dull ill-defined seat implies that the journey is going to be uncomfortable and instinctively my body adapts itself to counter the discomfort. The squealing of the raw metal wheels on the tracks and sudden jolt indicates the start of the journey and the man next to me, simultaneously, slumps into his seat pulls his hat over his eyes and doses off.
I truly adore the significance of making music which works as an ecstasy since the day I have realized the value of it. The long term determination of keeping my dream goal alive which is to become a successful artist in the music industry and to influence other individuals with it can be strengthened by a quality
