Sexuality and Relationship Coach For Women, Author, Founder, B...

9 Everyday Things That Used To Be Totally Taboo
Secrets and Lies
Bestselling author and teacher. www.markmatousek.com
Social behavior is always selective; being private isn't deception. We believe, naively, as tell-it-all Americans, that secrets are indicators of inner corruption ("You're only as sick as your secrets!"), things to be avoided, wrong. But this is ridiculous. Nobody is an open book.

Sex: A Perspective From the Bench
Online magazine for twenty-something women

The Rise of the Taboo Entrepreneur
Small business management columnist, author, speaker, and busi...

Susan Brace Lovell
Author of The Sandpiper
Mary doesn't have cancer; she has alcoholism. And, like Emily, she is undergoing treatment. But hers is not chemotherapy; hers is a 30-day residential program for alcoholism/addiction. Her family, too, could use a sign-up sheet for meals and support during this difficult time.

Is There a Right 'Dose' of Swearing?
Richard C. Senelick, M.D.
Neurologist, author, blogger and international speaker
It would appear that there is a "dose" of swearing that works best. If you swear too much it reduces its benefit, but if you do not swear at all, you may not have as a high a pain tolerance. Swearing seems to have a protective effect -- to a point.
