One of the most common reasons that I see peoplemy consulting room is because they're worried aboutswollen gland, and usually they're talking about swollen glandstheir necks. Isuspect the reason so many people worry about swollen glands is that they know that they can be asymptom of cancer. Well here's the good news: they almost always mean something much less scary. So let's think a little bitabout what they are
so we can understand why you get them, and what you need to look out for basically your glands, or quot;lymph glandsquot; or quot;lymph nodesquot; are kind of like stations on a complied railwaynetwork and the railway lines are your lymph channels. Now those lymph channels are filled with a fluid called lymph, and they carry the white blood cells which help yourbody to fight off infection around your body
if you get an infectionone part or ifyour body spots an quot;invaderquot; it activates yourbody's immune system, your defense mechanisms, and they sendwhite cells rushing to the spot. They'll congregate at that Station, that lymph node, and that's why glands swell. If your slim you may be able tofeel normal size glands actually they're about the size of a pea or a bitsmaller and some of them are just underneath the skin whereas others
are buried deep inside the inside of your tummy and inside your chest but those ones that you can feel, are mostlythe armpitsthe groin and round the head and neck now, you have title tracks of lymph glandswhich go behind there and a little groupfront of your ears you have more underneath the chin andyet more just above your collar bone here. We alsohave a chain which goes round the back of yourscalp, right at the bottom there.
so there are lots and lots of glands, and actually if you feel one, it may not be enlarged at all however by far the most common reason for lymphglands to get swollen is infection, and that does cause enlargement. Kids who have a lot of tonsillitis or sore throats, their glands will be going up and down like that all the time. Ifyou have an infection it'll often make your glance well very quickly becauseyour body is rushing very quickly to the spot
those glands will not only be large, butthen also be tender now which glands will be swollen willdepend on where the infection is so for instance your whole leg cranes to the limp glandsyour groin, so aninfectionyour toe could cause swollen glandsyour groin. Very muchless likely, breast cancer, or an infectionyourbreast, ains to the lymph glandsyour armpit so itcould cause inflammation if those ones there.
Forced to Masturbate for College Class
we talk every onceawhile about humansexuality coursesgenerally when this comes up the reason that comes up isthat assumethe classes i had a proper something has been talk we talkpreviously about uh. classes ahead pornographic tutorials shown as part of thethe curriculum and obviously every onceawhile signal of public that out sowe have another very ridiculous human sexuality course it's being offered uh. and so karen rice who is a formerwestern nevada college carson city student
is filing a lawsuit with the u_s_district court nevada against uh. the the former teacher whois doing this research on the course and uh. at her reasons for doing it orso meeting so as i'm reading the stories normally i will markov ridiculous quotes i wannaread and the problem was that i was markingoff almost every line because this class based on what she says was the same sodas and ideas of thestuff is going on
on the very first day of class uh. cool decide who is the professorwho is being targeted by this lawsuit tells his students that he will increasetheir sexual urges to such a height that they won't be able to think aboutanything other than sex you can say that to you by someonethat's a really funny but i don't have a problem with that he was making lawson well you know that novice leaflet can't stand and fight
it was trying to be colorful and funevening scrap me joe is this high school or college this is not helping antoine final that'sthat's true i guess throne is everything it is it's all about timing he was beinga pretty ladies on his these people sex immediately below the visions werebehind the lectern when he asked again i would be questionable but it just soundslike he's trying to be animated find united possibly right you have notreceived your case gets atomic nono other avenues say one thingdefenseof your position before i continue
reintroduce what's our should point outthat the scenequestion is sixty years old citizen to be a little bit moresensitive perhaps unless you the the sexual shenanigans going on so the nextthing that they had to do is an assignment that was given to students they had a right three journal entriesof two huned fifty words each was cited for uh. before the next class disclosingtheir personal sexual thoughts and
explain that this is for a final projectwhich was titled a sexual case study usual do you have a festa should be gatheringthe sexual fantasies of the student where's the gavel yeah guilty kept thoseout there it sexual fantasies and thoughts of yourstudents like now sounds like inc about the sexualfantasies unless former students it seems like twenty materialany oldthe speaking of waking actually we have an additional things so let's see thefinal assignment explicitly ask students
The great porn experiment Gary Wilson TEDxGlasgow
Inspired by the last talker I'm gonna have a little song about Internet porn. No, just kidding. The widespread use of Internet pornis one of the fastes moving most global experiment ever unconsciously conducted. Nearly every young guy with Internet access becomes an eager test subject. Canadian researcher Simon Lajeunesse found that most boys seek pornography by age 10.
iven by a brain that is suddenly fascinated by sex. Now, users perceive Internet porn as far more compelling than porn of the past. Why is thaté Unending novelty. In this Australian experiment, it's not mere nudity but novelty that gets arousals skyrocketing. Subjects watch 22 porn displays.See that spikeé That's where searchers switch to pornthe guys hadn't seen before.
What happenedéThe erectionstheir brains fired up. Why all the excitementé Mother nature likes to keep a male fertilizing willing females as long as any new ones are around. In that top line the ram, he needs more and more time to make with the same old you. But if you keep switching females the bottom line well she's not the same. He can get the job done2 minutes flat and keep going until he's utterly exhausted.
This is known as the Coolidge effect. Without the Coolidge effect there would be no Internet porn. This old mammalian program the Coolidge effect perceives each novel female on a guy's screen as a genetic opportunity. To keep a guy fertilizing the screen his brain releases the quot;go get itquot; neurochemical dopaminefor each novel made or image. Eventually the ram will tire but as long as the guy can keep clicking
he can keep going as so will his dopamine. With internet porn a guy can see more hot babes10 minutes than his ancestors could seeseveral lifetimes. The problem is he has a huntergather brain. A heavy user brain rewires itself to this genetic bonanza so it carefully becomes associatedwith this porn harem. Such behaviours that are associated with this are being alone, voyeurism, clicking, searching, multiple tabs
fastforwarding, constant novelty shock and surprise. As one young guy once asked: Are we the first generation to masturbate left handedé Now, real sex,contrast,is courtship, touching, being touched, smells, pheromones, emotional connection, interaction with a real person. Now, what happens when our guyfinally gets with a real mate. Well, researchers don't know much about the effects
