A recent study confirmed what men knew all along.
Women who perform the act of fellatio and swallow semen on a regular basis, one to two times a week, may reduce their risk of breast cancer by up to 40 percent, a North Carolina State University study found.

Everyone knows The Solitaire Guy. He’s the one with the red message light on his phone always blinking, the one that gives the “I’ll get to it, I’ll get to it” brush-off whenever he’s asked when he’ll get his tasks done. He’s late to meetings, forgets to return phone calls, his desk is cluttered and nobody can remember the last time he did any significantly helpful work.
But hey, everyone is that Solitaire-playing loafer from time to time: the CIO with the suspiciously low golf handicap; the woman in telecom who does the vanishing act everyday at 4:45 p.m.; your buddy in the next cube who is always “too busy, can’t talk” but nobody knows quite with what.
