Amanda Gryce has a rare medical condition that makes her have constant, uncontrollable orgasms.

 

*Now this is an interesting problem to have, wouldn’t you agree? All kidding aside, but can you even fathom having uncontrollable orgasms throughout the day? Going up to the office in the elevator. Talking with the girls around the water cooler. At a staff meeting in your bosses office!

O.M.G.

But that’s the reality for one Florida woman who admits to having up to 50 orgasms a day.

But wait, before you try to wrap your brain too comfortably around that; she’s no nymph. She happens to suffer from a very rare medical condition. Continue reading

*Warning: This is a very hard story to wrap your brain around. It’s bad enough to lose someone we love, but to learn that they suffered is even worse.

A California man is suing the doctor who declared his wife dead.

Why?

Because he claims she woke up in the morgue and froze to death as she  struggled to escape.

The diagnosis was that Maria Arroyo, 80, had died as a result of cardiac arrest, and when husband Guadalupe Arroyo saw the condition of her body, he thought staff at White Memorial Medical Center in Los Angeles had mishandled her. But morticians found  her body face-down in the metal morgue compartment, with a broken nose along with bruises and cuts too severe to mask. The body bag was also partially open.

The conclusion is that Maria wasn’t dead when they said she was.

*This story is both heartbreaking and troubling. Heartbreaking because it tells the story of 19-year-old Levy Thamba, an exchange student at Northwest College in Powell, Wyo., who was visiting Colorado for spring break, when he tried marijuana cookies for the first time, started behaving erratically, and then jumped to his death.

Troubling because now an actual fatality has now been linked to marijuana and can be used as a tool against the legalized sale of it.

Thamba, had just eaten the pot-laced treats with friends last month when he became “very agitated and upset” and ran off a fourth floor hotel balcony, according to the Denver Coroner’s Office. Continue reading

Pedicure Season is Upon Us…But How Clean is Your Salon of Preference?

pedi-feet-wash*I never felt totally comfortable getting a mani-pedi, if I’m being totally honest with you. Did I actually see the tools being sanitized in that blue stuff? I don’t think so. And when the technician would motion for me to “come on over” after just finishing with the last customer, did I didn’t witness anything significant being done with the tools that were used? Again, no.

So now, to hear from an actual podiatrist, that we’d better be real careful before heading out to our favorite mani-pedi-place, I figure I’d better stop being so damn polite! Put my big-girl pants on, speak up and…oh yeah, share with you some of the good tips I’ve learned.

You’re welcome.

First and foremost, bring your own darn tools!Why the heck did I never think of this before. I just assumed it wouldn’t be allowed. But, duh! Come to think of it, why would I allow someone working on my body, who I am actually paying, to tell me what they are allowed to use on MY body? Its not like their doctors and I’m telling them what meds to prescribe.

But those are just my observations. Listen to what Dr. Jackie Sutera, a New York-based podiatrist, Dr. Ella Toombs, a dermatologist in Washington, DC, and Crystal Clements, the manager at Eve Salon in New York City have to say on things we just need to know before we book our next appointment.
