The 9 Best Hangovers Curesâ¦That Just Donât Work

So you went a little hard last night and now you’re feeling fatigued, headache-y, and maybe a little pukey. I feel for you, dude! Hangovers are easily the worst. Anybody who has ever partied knows that. If only there was something you could do about it!

15 Surefire Ways To Immediately Destroy Your Libido

The reputable Time Magazine’s blog posted a list entitled “15 Everyday Habits to Boost Your Libido: Easy lifestyle tweaks to crank up your sex drive” complete with libido enhancing tips like “schedule sex” and “make sure your meds aren’t to blame for your lack of a sex drive.” I’m sure these are all very helpful for people who just haven’t been feeling too sexy, but what are you supposed to do if you already have an outrageously raging sex drive?
