I just love riding my car's gear shift lever. It is very thick and round at the top. So it perfectly suits my needs.
Some species, mostly fish, amphibians, and invertebrates, are capable of changing sexes under certain circumstances. In fiction it is sometimes possible for other creatures, even humans in some cases, to do this as well. Subtrope of Gender Bender.
Television With a third season of Masters of Sex screening this year, Susan Lever charts the highs and lows of a TV drama inspired by real events. As Frank Bongiorno writes in his book, The Sex Lives of Australianswhile Greer dismissed the Masters and Johnson approach to sex as mechanical, gynaecologists reported that one obstacle to its message was the fact that many Australian women had no idea they had a clitoris. When it comes to sexual understanding, we have a tendency to look back on the past from a superior, bemused position.
Early-life trauma can increase the risk for, and severity of, several psychiatric illnesses. These include drug use disorders, and some correlations appear to be stronger in women.

Last year we theorized that the design of a gearshift lever was what caused a year-old mother to move her car directly into the path of an oncoming train. Now it looks like another unusual interface design from a different vehicle manufacturer may have contributed to another death. Over the weekend Anton Yelchin, the year-old actor known for playing Chekov in the recent Star Trek movies, was killed in what was referred to as "a freak accident" in his Los Angeles driveway.
I was conscious that — despite their many differences — navigating criminal justice policy and practice in these areas involved a number of parallel themes and concerns. Trying to get a clearer sense of my thinking across, as well as within, these arenas seemed important, not least because at times I worried that there were inconsistencies within my approach. But doing this also proved to be very challenging.
In this article, we present and discuss the intended and unintended effects of the Swedish Sex Purchase Act, which criminalises the purchase of sex within a context where the sale of sex is legal. Whether or not this means of regulating prostitution is successful, and whether it has negative consequences for people who sell sex, are important questions in international policy and academic debates. This article builds on a scoping study aimed at identifying relevant sources of information as to the consequences of the Swedish Sex Purchase Act, then summarising and discussing these findings.
