Sorry boys, size DOES matter in the locker room: Well-endowed athletes are idolised and seen as more masculine

Ahhhhh….time to get good at other things LOL

  • The bigger a man’s penis the better, so far as athletes are concerned
  • Well-endowed men are more likely to be key to team camaraderie
  • Penis size is the basis for banter and nicknames among teammates
  • Just having a large penis is not enough, athletes also need to be known to be sexually active to be seen as masculine

5? For who? High schoolers ? Was that out loud?

Reached your fifth sexual partner? Then stop! Five is the magic number for finding Mr or Miss Right

How many sexual partners have you had? If the answer is five then the search for ‘the one’ could be over.

MSN have developed a love formula that can work out the key ingredients for a successful long lasting relationship, and it has revealed that the number of sexual partners someone has can affect their relationship success.

The formula has been devised for those looking to give their love life a bit of a spring clean – be that by taking their relationship to the next level or by completely re-evaluating it.

According to the 2,000 men and women surveyed to create the formula, we are most likely to settle with lover number five.

Exactly a quarter (25 per cent) of both men and women believe their partner should have had a fair amount of experience with four sexual partners before them – though one in five men (21 per cent) are holding onto tradition believing they should be their ideal woman’s FIRST partner.

Being funny is a big turn on apparently as when it comes to personality, the number one character trait both men and women search for in a partner is wit. 

How you act between the sheets also matters. Some 26 per cent of men believe that a successful relationship needs to involve good sex in order to succeed where as only 13 per cent of women believe this to be true.

MSN’s relationship expert and psychologist Corinne Sweet says that the reason we wait till partner number five to settle is because we are most sure of ourselves then.

‘Most people enter a serious relationship, hoping it will last forever.  Few know that it’s only by the time they get to sexual partner number five that they really know what they want, and are confident to voice it.

‘Good looks might help sexual attraction, but they don’t last forever, so it’s important to look at your partner’s personality, wants and desires as well.’

She goes on to say that the MSN love formula is not something to be sniffed at and can really help us work out what we want from a relationship.

‘The MSN Spring love formula can help determine the traits we should be looking for.  It can even indicate how long a relationship might last based on compatibility and mutual goals.  Forewarned is forearmed, even in love.’

Michael Walter from Winchester, Hants, has been with his girlfriend for two years and spent ten minutes working out the equation of the MSN love formula.

The 30-year-old said: ‘I spent a few minutes working out the formula and it revealed I will stay with my girlfriend for 33 years and 3 months.I’m delighted with the results, we’ve only been together for a year and a half and these results are promising.’

Although Michael was pleased with his long lasting result he was a little concerned as to what might happen once the 33 years are up.

Although we do not have plans to get married, 33 years is incredibly encouraging, though I do wonder what is going to happen at that point!’

If the answer is YES to, “Did you fuck her?” Nothing left to say LOL

The five questions that tell you if it’s worth forgiving a cheating partner (and a five step recovery plan if the answer is yes!)

As yet another celebrity marriage seems to have bitten the dust with Blurred Lines Robin Thicke and wife Paula Patton announcing their split after twenty years, the question of how to recover from an affair seems more and more apt.

While it’s not clear what was the actual cause of the couple’s parting, there have been many rumours of indescretions on Robin’s part and few things compare with the pain of betrayal.

When you love someone it feels like you’re in a nice, safe, love-infused bubble that no-one can penetrate.

Then, overnight, with a confession or a discovery, that bubble bursts. And boy does it burst with a bang.

Some couples do survive infidelity but only if both of you honestly think the relationship is worth it and the guilty person is prepared to do everything it takes to win back your trust and love.

This will help you decide and guide you through the process of recovery.

STEP ONE: Are they worth another chance?

Some cheating partners don’t deserve to be forgiven.

Ask yourself these five crucial questions.

Have they cheated on other people in the past?

If someone has developed a pattern of cheating over and over, they will continue to do it again (and again) until someone – hopefully you – dumps them brutally and they realise they can’t get away with it. No second chances in this case. Ever.

Why did they do it?

A one-off incident with seemingly genuine reasons to explain it is a lot easier to forgive than repeated slip-ups or a long-term affair.

Put yourself in their shoes: if you were them, feeling the way they did, in the situation they were in, what would you do? Can you understand it?

What do you think they will do if they’re in the same predicament in the future?

What guarantees can they give you that it won’t happen again?

How was your relationship when it happened?

You’ll be much more likely to forgive (if not forget) if you were aware your partner was unhappy, the relationship wasn’t great and you were suspicious.

If you thought you were blissfully happy and didn’t notice a single sign that anything was wrong, it’s desperately hard to trust again.

If there were no clues last time round, how will you know if it happens again?

Do they regret what they’ve done?

They should be even more miserable about the pain it’s caused than you are.

STEP TWO: Give each other space

Your first reaction will be to want to cling onto him and not let him out of your sight.


There are two things you need to establish at this point: that you mean business and their behaviour is not acceptable and that you have dignity.

If you live together, get him to move out for a few days. You need this time to logically sort through your emotions.
If you don’t live together, say you don’t want to see them for a while. Start a diary of all your emotions and your questions and use it make a list of questions you need answers to at the end of the time apart.


This isn’t a kiss and makeup session. This is a meeting to decide if there is enough worth saving.

Warn your partner there are lots of questions you still need answered. If they’re not prepared to answer them, forget it. If they are, start asking.

This will be incredibly painful but it’s essential you get honest answers to what you need to know.

Armed with answers, do you feel reasonably confident you’ll both pull through and there’s still enough to work with?

Now’s the time to move back in or start seeing each other regularly again.

STEP FOUR: Build a new relationship

Your old relationship, the damaged one, is dead. You now need to build a new one.

Yes this is sad, but it’s also exciting. Just think! It may well end up even better than the first in lots of ways!

What will be missing though, is innocence and trust.

The aim is to replace this with other qualities, like, ‘We are survivors – even this didn’t break us up.’

You will feel insecure and you will feel angry. You will fight about it, over and over, to begin with. This is normal.

To get through it, you need to set some rules for the new relationship. These are specific to you two but you might want to think about things like telling each other where you are all the time, checking in during periods that might be hard for you to cope with, sending lots of reassuring texts.

STEP FIVE: Be prepared to change

All of the above looks after you, the wronged party. 

But as much as it should be skewed to look after you, it’s unfair to discount your partner’s needs.
Your partner cheated for a reason.

What did they get from this new person that they couldn’t get from you?

Who were they with the new person?

When couples have been together a long time, it’s hard to reinvent yourself and get your partner to see you as someone ‘new’.

Were there parts of themselves that felt satisfied with the other person that aren’t being satisfied with you? What are they?

Explore ways to help him be able to do this with you.

One final question that I am asked all the time: when will I feel better and the pain go away?

The answer is this: time heals wounds that are able to be healed.

In six months, you should be feeling better most of the time; one year on, trust should be developing again.

If it’s not, it’s time to move forward – solo.
