Masturbation before bed leads to better sleep, English doctor argues

Aug 6 2021 Share

Whether it’s preparing a nice cup of tea or putting on some soothing music, everyone has their own pre-sleep ritual but English GP and author Dr. Jeff Foster’s suggestions for some self-love before sleep have made headlines all over the internet.

In an interview with Glamour magazine, Dr. Foster stated that “masturbation is the same as sexual intercourse, and therefore, the differentiation between the two is only significant in terms of that fact that other people may or may not be involved in the process.”

The doctor argued that sexual activity and the resulting orgasm trigger the release of hormones such as dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin and prolactin which ultimately leave a sedating effect.

The fishing world has gone absolutely crazy after a regular at Jennette’s Pier in North Carolina found a fish with seemingly ‘human’ teeth which has been identified as a ‘sheepshead fish’.

The fish’s name is as such due to the mouth resembling that of a sheep, with photos of the catch with its mouth open exhibiting multiple rows of molars which are meant to catch and crush prey.
