When Chapters Couture introduced their “Phronesis” Black and White themed collection at the visually impaired fashion show in November 2016 to promote peace ahead of Ghana’s election, everyone in the audience was astound and thought the new collection was imminent. But then it never came — until now.

Men are almost twice as likely to smile at a woman in heels than one in flats, and are significantly more likely to offer her help


If you wear high heels at work, prepare for some good news – and some bad.

British researchers say evidence suggests both women and men find those in heels more appealing.

If you're a guy with an older brother, there's an increased chance you're gay.

Scientists have noticed this pattern in previous research, but now they think they have a biological explanation as to why, and it starts long before birth. The results were published in the journal PNAS on Monday.

The researchers say that if their findings can be replicated, we may know at least one of the biological reasons some men are gay.

He is vociferous, fearless and will not stop at even taking on the Government of Ghana if a child’s safety, education or health is compromised.

His stance on children’s issues can be bullish and sometimes uncompromising because of the passion that drives his advocacy for children.

It’s the eternal quest: how do you increase the size, strength and stamina of your erections? There are endless treatments, ointments and devices claiming to pump up your volume, but precious few solutions hold any water.

The reality is that we're blessed (or possibly cursed) with whatever God gave us. But if you follow the realistic tips, you can maximise your erection on all fronts.
These tips could come in handy when you know in advance that you're going to have sex, as you'll be well-informed and prepared. You can make your penis go the distance instead of being a "one and done" guy.

Life without sex


A very popular actor, singer, educationalist and politician recently opened up to the media to talk about all areas of her life, public and private.

However, one comment that attracted a great deal of attention was the fact that she said she had not slept with a man for six years.

For Jawad Rezavi, 26, smoking shisha is the perfect way to unwind in an evening. "After a long day, I'll go to a shisha lounge. It relaxes me. In the same way that some people will enjoy a glass of red wine or need a cigarette to keep going while they're working, I like to enjoy my shisha. If I don't do it, it feels like I'm missing something."

Shisha, the origins of which are disputed (some say India, others Persia or Turkey) is a glass-bottomed water pipe in which fruit-flavoured tobacco is covered with foil and roasted with charcoal. The tobacco smoke passes through a water chamber and is inhaled deeply and slowly; the fruit-flavoured tobacco tastes smooth and smells sweet, enthusiasts say, making it an enjoyable and unrushed experience.

A: This is a tough question to answer because the topic has not been well-studied. Two studies of male and female identical twins did find a link between wearing hats and increased hair loss for the men, but not the women. In another study, wearing hard hats or military head wear had no effect on hair loss.

Sex is a wonderful, glorious and necessary component of an intimate relationship.  It makes you feel good, it makes the other person feel good, it’s great for your health and it’s a great way to end, or start, the day.

In an ideal world, every sexually active human would be having earth-shatteringly good shags, but, alas, it’s fair to say things don’t always go as planned. Sometimes, they go very, very wrong.

Your parents taught you not to call people names, like “jerk.” But let’s be honest, some people have earned this label for good reason.

If you’ve had bad luck in relationships, you might feel like a jerk magnet. Somehow, they keep finding you. But there’s a more plausible explanation—YOU are attracted to jerks, and YOU are the one responsible for breaking the pattern.

Your man loves you and doesn’t want to hear certain things from you.

To keep your relationship healthy and happy, stay away from the following phrases.

While on the road from savvy singledom to happily hooked up, chances are good that, at one time or another, you’ll find yourself in the following scenario: You meet someone new. He or she looks good, sounds good, and has plenty of potential. There’s just one thing: His or her lip-locking abilities are, well, lackluster.

Honestly, your honey can’t kiss his or her way out of a paper bag. What’s a savvy single to do? Before you decide to ditch your pucker-challenged cutie, first give the following five tips a try. They may just turn a bad kisser into a pleasing and passionate lip locker.

It's time to get out there and find the person you've been waiting for.

1. You are no longer insecure about the way you look. 

All the harsh criticisms that you heard before doesn’t bother you anymore. If someone broke up with you because of a flaw they saw in your physical appearance, then that’s their problem. You’re proud of who you are from inside out and you are never going to alter anything in your body. You still continue to walk with confidence knowing that somebody out there is going to fall in love with the way you carry and present yourself.

You have heard it said many times that communication is crucial for good relationships.

Few people would disagree that open, honest communication is important but that doesn’t mean everyone is willing or able to talk effectively.
