As a student of philosophy, I believe that the Ancient Greeks laid the foundation for the way most of the world thinks today. Their philosophers examined a vast array of thoughts pertaining to the universals of life including the birds and the bees.
The erotic dilemma in Ancient Greece reflected the paradoxical nature of érōs. How could affection and love, or érōs, be capable of producing pleasure and kindness while also producing violent obsession and disruptions to the rational mind?
What did ancient Greek philosophers say about this? Some highlighted the importance of loving the person's soul as opposed to their body. Others, like the stoics, saw sexual aspirations as positive in so far as the state of character of the lover was in accordance to their ideal virtue. The two most impactful thinkers and surviving household names, Plato and Aristotle offered a range of insights on the subject. Check out their top ten...

Breaking the bank on an exotic car won’t increase your chances of being lucky in love, according to the findings of a recent autoTRADER.ca survey that explores the connection between romantic desirability and vehicle choice. In fact, Canadians claim to be more attracted to utility, practicality and frugality over luxury and flash when it comes to what a prospective lover is driving. Read the full article here.
J-Lo’s love may not cost a thing, but apparently the cost of love for Canadian daters in on the rise. From fancy dates to exorbitant weddings, check out this RateSupermarket.ca infographic and Jess’ interview on Global TV's The Morning Show below.
Excerpted from The New Sex Bible
You’ve probably heard a great deal about the clitoris and you likely already know that it exists solely for the purpose of pleasure. But did you know that the clitoris has legs? And that the complex structure of the clitoris may explain why most women orgasm from rubbing, grinding and pressing on the vulva?
The clitoris is more than just a tiny nodule at the top of where the labia meet. That shiny pearl-like structure, which is often referred to as the clitoris is actually only the head of the clitoris. It also has two legs, two bulbs, foreskin, glands, nerves, blood vessels, a shaft and the capacity to become erect. Once you study the full anatomy of the clitoral complex, you may conclude that the clitoris is much like a penis...only smaller. But when you further examine the deep roots and multiple parts of the inner clitoris, it becomes more obvious that the clitoris isn’t a smaller version of the penis, but simply a variant model.
Continued from Part 1 here...
It is not uncommon for a woman to have trouble visually locating her clitoris, as it is not a body part that most of us learn about from a young age. In fact, you may have discovered its pleasure capacity by accident. If you haven’t had a chance to look at your clitoris, there is no time like the present! After a relaxing shower or bath, sit on your bum with your knees bent, legs spread and feet flat on the bed. Use a hand mirror as you pull up gently on the skin at the top of your inner labia (just below your pubic mound) to reveal your sensitive clitoral head. It is usually round and a bit shiny and protrudes from beneath the hood. Every woman’s body is different so yours may poke out conspicuously or only extend slightly from beneath its hood. Either way, know that you’re beautiful!

It's easy to get caught up with the holidays that you push your New Years plans on the back burner. By the time you get around to making NYE plans, your wallet is drained from gift shopping. If you find yourself in this situation, not to worry - you're not alone. Here are a few New Years ideas for when you're on a budget:
A Cottage/Cabin Escape - Whether its just you and your significant other or a big group of friends, spending your evening at a cottage or a cabin is a great way to ring in the new year. If you or someone you know is lucky enough to have access to this kind of vacation property, it will keep your costs down and all you need to consider is your budget for food, drink and travel.
Celebrating in a popular city square - If you plan on celebrating in the big city, club tickets or fancy dinner reservations can get pricey. Why not head down to the free celebrations in your city's core? In big cities like Toronto and New York, free concerts, festivals...
Sometimes the Holidays can sneak up on you and you find yourself in the mall, scrambling to find the perfect present for your special someone. Fear not; you are not alone. Don’t let the pressure of the impending holiday get you down. It’s the thought that counts. Consider the following ideas for the person on your nice or naughty list.
Give the gift of chocolate! Chocolate is a great way to show that you care about someone and many times, it is already packaged for you. Not only is chocolate a great way to sweeten your sweetie’s heart, it is also a great mood enhancer. Chocolate contains the compound PEA (phenylethylamine) which is responsible for releasing the same ‘feel good’ endorphins that happen during sex. Chocolate has come a long way from a humble candy bar. There are so many variations available on the market ranging from distinctly artisanal to sultry and extra dark. Search the internet or visiting your local chocolatier...
As the cold weather creeps in, you may enticed to stay at home under the covers all day. However, if you have a big date coming up or want to reignite the spark with your lover, impress them with a creative activity, rather than the inside of your apartment. I chatted with dating experts, Carmelia Ray and Deanna Cobden to get inspired with some great winter date ideas!
I am trying to save some money for holiday gifts. What are some examples of economically-friendly dates you would suggest?
"Ice Skating is a classic but still very romantic. There’s something about holding hands while skating that can melt a girl’s heart. Don’t forget to bring along a thermos of Hot Chocolate to warm you, up after. Staying in can be fun too, light some candles, get a bottle of wine, add snacks, snuggle up under a blanket and have a winter themed movie marathon." - Deanna
