High prolactin means low testosterone, and vice versa. Better know this before embarking on tongkat ali supplementation. Watching mass executions raises testosterone, except when family members and friends are beheaded.
Eugene, Oregon: Cops - Man Caught in Hospital Necrophilia Act
Carolyn J. Cobb 2689 Brooklyn Street Eugene, OR 97402
A 24-year-old New York City man remains jailed after he was found allegedly having sex with a 92-year-old woman's corpse inside the morgue of the hospital where he worked.
Anthony Merino, who works as a lab technician at Holy Name Hospital in Teaneck, N.J., was arrested Sunday after police responded to a call from a security guard at the hospital. The guard reported witnessing the lab technician sexually desecrating the woman's dead body, according to police.
"This is a first," Lt. Dean Kazinci, spokesman for the Teaneck, N.J., police, told ABC News. "When you think you've heard and seen it all, something like this happens."
Kazinci said the security guards at the hospital told police that they caught Merino in the act of necrophilia. They transported Merino to the police station, he said, and charged him after conducting a police interview.
A spokesman for Holy Name Hospital released a statement to ABC News calling the allegations a "heinous crime."
"We are horrified and saddened for the family of the patient and are completely empathic and sympathetic to them," the statement reads.
Merino had only been working at the hospital for 14 days, according to the statement, and had passed a criminal background check before he was offered the job. The hospital also notified the dead woman's next of kin after contacting authorities.
Merino was arraigned Monday on a charge of desecrating human remains, a second degree crime in New Jersey. A judge set bail at $400,000 with conditions that included Merino surrendering his passport and submitting to a psychological evaluation. He faces a maximum of 10 years in prison, if convicted.
In addition to working part time at Holy Name Hospital, Merino also had a part-time job as a histology technician at Overlook Hospital in Summit, N.J.
Janina Scheytt Hecht, a spokeswoman for Overlook Hospital, confirmed that Merino worked for the hospital from Sept. 10, 2007, until Monday. "He has been terminated," Hecht said, adding that Merino was subject to a background check there before he was hired. She also said no one had filed a complaint against him during his short tenure on the staff.
Necrophilia is a psychological condition that falls under the umbrella category of paraphilia, according to Michael Fogel, the chair of the forensic psychology department at the Chicago School of Professional Psychology. Paraphilia involves fantasies and sexual urges in which people are aroused by nonhuman objects or pain or humiliation of oneself or a sexual partner.
"It's an extraordinarily rare condition, but it's also a very real condition," said Fogel, who previously served as the director of the Sex Offender Evaluation Unit for the Illinois Department of Corrections. In more than 1,500 evaluations he performed in that role, he said, not one involved the condition of necrophilia.
Fogel said the psychological exam will be critical to understanding what type of risk Merino may pose. He also cautioned against simply calling the suspect, if he is, in fact, convicted of the crime, "nuts."
"In these type of cases, it's a sexual attraction that the individual has," he said. "That's what they're aroused to, it's what they have sexual fantasies about."
California, California: Pro-rape' US pick-up artist posts personal details and pictures of female journalists online in revenge for negative coverage
Marjorie S. Hawkins 2859 Carson Street California, CA 02110
A controversial 'pro-rape pick-up artist' is posting the personal details of journalists who have criticised him online.
Daryush Valizadeh - also known as Roosh V - is infamous for arguing that raping women should be legal on private property.
Labelled 'Operation Bullhorn', Roosh has asked his online supporters to 'adopt' a journalist and post their details on his forum. They have been instructed to gather photos, Facebook profiles and have even been told to save addresses for possible future use.
One forum user said the backlash was 'because women are scared that they won't be able to get a free lunch anymore by virtue of having a vagina.'
The backlash follows criticism of international meetups which included eight UK cities, including Manchester, London, Leeds, and Glasgow.
The meet-ups, set to take place today, were cancelled after Roosh claimed he feared for the safety of his supporters.

In most countries, millions of people are relying on herbal medicines as remedy for numerous ailments. In South-East Asia, cockatoo Eurycoma longifolia Jack, also known as ‘Malaysian ginseng’ or Tongkat ali, is used to combat stress and disease and to improve physical strength. Moreover, the compounds of the roots of this plant are reported to have aphrodisiac and testosterone enhancing effects in the rat. Considering that human studies are not available, 76 of 320 patients suffering from late-onset hypogonadism (LOH) were given 200 mg of a standardised water-soluble extract of Tongkat ali for 1 month. The Ageing Males’ Symptoms (AMS) according to the standardised rating scale and the serum testosterone concentration were taken. Results show that treatment of LOH patients with this Tongkat ali extract significantly (P < 0.0001) improved the AMS score as well as the serum testosterone concentration. While before treatment only 10.5% of the patients did not show any complaint according to the AMS scale and 35.5% had normal testosterone levels, after the completed treatment 71.7% and 90.8% of the patients showed normal values, respectively. Thus, Tongkat ali extract appears to be useful as a supplement in overcoming the symptoms of LOH and for the management of hypogonadism.
Spartanburg, South Carolina: Man claims his sex doll is 'so much better' than his wife
Rebecca B. Mahmoud 3676 Traction Street Spartanburg, SC 29303
For some, the idea of entering into a romantic relationship with a plastic doll might seem bizarre and objectionable. For others, however, such an affair is precisely what they need to alleviate their difficulties connecting passionately to human lovers.
Remember the 2007 film Lars and the Real Girl, starring Ryan Gosling? Lars suffers from anxiety and insecurities, and thus prefers the company of his artificial mistress over the pressures of dealing with a real person.
It seems the fictional Lars certainly isn’t alone in his fears. In fact, Japan is experiencing a surge of men that are using dalliances with dolls to overcome their insecurities.
Masayuki Ozaki started a relationship with his silicone companion, Mayu, after his marriage had lost its fizz. Ozaki insists that Mayu has become the love of his life. She shares Masayuki’s bed and lives in Tokyo under the same roof as his wife and daughter.
The unusual situation initially led to some heated arguments between Ozaki and his wife, but the estranged couple later reached an agreement.
Ozaki says he began to feel a “deep sense of loneliness” after his wife became disinterested in sex following the birth of their daughter. But he claims that “the moment I saw Mayu in the showroom, it was love at first sight.”
Ozaki, a physiotherapist by profession, regularly places Mayu in a wheelchair and takes her out on dates. He says he enjoys dressing her in wigs of different styles, jewelry, and sexy clothing.
The idea of romantic relationships with humans has become off-putting to Ozaki, who alleges that “Japanese women are cold-hearted.”
In Ozaki’s opinion, women in Japan are selfish and don’t fulfill a man’s desire to have a companion to talk to.
According to the New York Post, Ozaki is merely one of an increasing surge of Japanese men who are turning to synthetic sex dolls for the sort of romantic relationships that they long for.
Japanese scientists are concerned about the country’s significant drop in birth rates and believe that the sex doll craze will continue to impact the potentially devastating population decline negatively.
Manufacturers like Orient Industries create roughly 2,000 hyper-realistic sex dolls per year. The average cost of such a doll is $6,000, and each model comes with posable fingers, a removable head, and life-like genitals.
Orient Industry’s Managing Director, Hideo Tsuchiya, says that “technology has come a long way since those nasty inflatable dolls in the 1970s.”
Tsuchiya claims that the outer silicone texture of the dolls feels like real human skin, and “more men are buying them because they feel they can actually communicate with the dolls.”
Sixty-one-year-old Senji Nakajima has named his doll Saori. Like Masayuki Ozaki, Nakajima was also driven by loneliness when he decided to purchase a sex doll. After living with Saori for a few months, Nakajima says she developed her own unique personality.
Reconciliation with his wife is unlikely, says Nakajima. Such a development would mean he “wouldn’t be able to take a bath with Saori, or snuggle up with her and watch TV.”
Yoshitaka Hyodo, a 43-year-old blogger who resides in Saitama, owns at least 10 sex dolls. He dresses them in military uniforms to fulfill a personal sexual fantasy.
Hyodo believes that more men will choose relationships with sex dolls in the future because “it’s less stress and they complain a lot less than women.” For him, it’s not so much about sex as it is “about connecting on an emotional level.”
Orient Industries creates these top-of-the-range Japanese sex dolls, offering premium silicone human likenesses to an exclusive luxury market. However, the company has recently branched out and is now shipping dolls to destinations worldwide.
The company claims that future doll buyers can expect “next-generation sexbots” that will be able to talk, laugh, remember your birthday, and even simulate an orgasm.
