Personal Alarms – A Device to Help Keep Coeds Safe While Away at College

Friday, September 15th, 2017

Protection for students attending college becomes a concern for parents when their children leave home – perhaps especially for parents of coeds. Why? One reason may be that many schools now house both males and females in the same dormitory, which may pose additional risk in the form of gender-based violence.

Not only that, but there is usually a higher probability of sexual harassment in college – mostly of female students by their male counterparts. Since being in possession of weapons is prohibited in schools, Personal Alarms become an excellent choice of self protection for many would-be victims. They are non-lethal yet have a sound that will unexpectedly startle any bad guy who wants to do harm to you thereby giving you time to get away.

Oftentimes there is a tendency for male students to band together, which poses an even greater threat to coed students in the dorm or while walking at night, on or off campus. For additional protection coeds should walk with at least one other person, especially at night. Most potential attackers are hesitant to bother even a small group of people.

For even more protection all students should carry a Personal Alarm with them at all times. This device is activated by pulling a pin or pressing a button. This will immediately sound a very loud alarm which will startle an attacker as well as get the attention of anyone around. And since most college students have cell phones, it will give them a chance to call 911, get a photo or two or maybe even get some video of what went on.

Personal Alarms are small and inexpensive and come in different shapes with different alarm intensities. There is one particular device that is great for coeds – a lipstick alarm which looks like a stylish tube of lipstick but gives off a 100 db alarm which can be heard by anyone nearby.

To activate this device you just pull the top up and the alarm will sound. So, if someone approaches a woman and she feels threatened, all she has to do is pull out the lipstick. The potential attacker should like the idea and thinks he’s doing OK until the alarm hits his ears. Then, after he’s startled, the woman should just run away and call 911 and so that the police can apprehend him quickly.

Personal Alarms should be carried by everyone at college, both females as well as males. These devices can keep you from becoming the next victim of a crime.

8 Foods That Affect the Sex Life of Men

Friday, September 15th, 2017

Sexual life has ups and downs, problems and stress is noted as one of the main factors affecting men.

But, according to The Guardian, Business Insider and GQ, the sex life of the male gender is being destroyed by various factors, such as porn addiction and poor diet.

That men constantly live with low levels of testosterone, greatly reduces libido (the sex drive) causing poor performance and even erectile dysfunction.

Testosterone is not only responsible for a better sex life, its constant production in the body of man is essential to keep it healthy and avoid hormonal imbalances.

In addition, it keeps the prostate and testicles healthy, in addition to being responsible for boosting the development of muscles, bones and body beauty. So, it is better to avoid previous foods and focus on food to have more energetic days.

Here the foods that according to the mentioned portals affect the sexual life of men:


Why?: Commercially produced cheese has high levels of synthetic hormones, which prevents the ones we own operate properly. Not only does it reduce testosterone, women can feel drastic changes due to lack of estrogen.

Replaces with: Oysters… Although very different from cheese, it is another dish considered gourmet and – although not an aphrodisiac as many believe – its high content of zinc helps maintain good testosterone levels.


Why? Menthol is responsible for reducing testosterone levels. This applies both to mint candies, the little touch that is added to the mojitos and the plant alone.

Replaces with: Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cabbage or cauliflower. This type of vegetable helps the removal of estrogen outside the body, allowing the testosterone level naturally. In addition, they are much healthier and can be used as a snack or as a small ornament for a saucer.

Corn Flakes

Why?: Although it seems unusual, the Corn Flakes were created to diminish the sex drive. By creating a simple grain cereal, it lowers testosterone levels and makes libido disappear.

Replaces with: Whole or fortified cereals. There are better alternatives to commercial cereals. Some are high in Vitamin D (necessary to balance testosterone levels) and others are also focused on providing high nutrients to maintain a good diet.

Alcohol and diet drinks

Why?: In the case of diet drinks, artificial sweeteners affect testosterone and serotonin levels causing low libido. On the other hand, alcohol in large quantities serves as a depressant for the body and prevents it from functioning properly, completely reducing sexual desire (or affecting its performance). In fact, beer prevents the liver from eliminating estrogen, hormone contrary to testosterone.

Replaces with: Milk… of course, nothing can replace alcohol, but at least low-fat milk has vitamin D that ensures you maintain proper levels.

Microwave Popcorn

Why?: In addition to popcorn sweeteners also motivate low testosterone levels, they can cause prostate problems.

Replace with: Watermelon or grapes. The first, in addition to helping the release of testosterone, improves blood flow. And, according to research in Hong Kong, grapes motivate the body to produce that hormone.


Why?: Phytoestrogens simulate the behavior of the hormone produced mainly by women, so both women and men may have hormonal imbalances for this product.

Replace with: Tuna or red meat. The former is linked to high levels of testosterone thanks to vitamin D. It also ensures a prolonged activation of the hormone. Red meat, although still considered bad for health (in excess) is ideal to recover testosterone.

Sweet bread (Trans fats)

Why?: Any food high in sugar puts testosterone levels at risk because it triggers the hormone insulin, which causes fat stores in a small belly, which encourages the rise in estrogen levels and the Body has a hormonal problem, reducing the sex drive.

Replace with: Eggs… or more specifically, egg yolks. Although it is necessary to take care of cholesterol, that food is rich in Vitamin D, the essential that we have mentioned along this list.


Why?: Although it is also known as an aphrodisiac, in reality its effects are like that of a drug, so, after giving the feeling of euphoria, the mood levels go down and with them, those of testosterone.

Replaces with: Bananas. This fruit has an enzyme called bromelain, which influences the production of the hormone of which we have spoken. It is a better snack that also gives energy to the body.
