You were active in other parts of the forum, so I didn't have to miss you.

(BTW, congratulations on the engagement.)

Too much sex affects your hormone balance. In a hormonal tug of war, testosterone and the stress hormone, cortisol, are affected by each other's levels. Higher levels of testosterone mean lower cortisol and vice versa. With each orgasm, testosterone is released and cortisol takes its place. If you overdo it, you'll likely have persistent low levels of testosterone and high levels of cortisol. Cortisol, in turn, suppresses the immune system and can negatively affect digestion.

As with all things, moderation is the key.

Some ask "why." I ask "why not?"

My initial choice for a username, in 2000, was "Lemon." With that name taken, I recycled through about a dozen more taken names, until I stumbled upon this one being free.

A few months later, I created a story that it was to reflect my more "cerebral nature" (as "melon" can be a synonym for "head/brain").

Overall, it turned out to be a nice coincidence, but the first story is the true one.

If forced to choose, filmmaker. The media has the true power over public opinion.

But considering all the minimum age limit laws, nothing says I can't do both. Famous actors do it all the time, it seems.

Yes, actually. It burns off serotonin, which, in turn, can cause headaches/migraines, if depleted.

Do you think if I started a thread titled "Ask the heathen" the mods would tell us all to cut out all the horseplay?
