How to cook perfect cheesecake Cheesecake is one of those things, like Danish pastries, or truffles, whose attractions have long been a mystery to me. While I don't actively dislike it, I can always think of a more enjoyable way to deploy its considerable calorie load. Until recently, I could never put my finger on the root of my aversion – after all, I love cake, and I love cheese, and, if we're talking Wensleydale and fruit cake, I even like them together – until Paul Daniels came up in conversation (no, I'm not sure, either). Instantly I was transported back to the mid-80s, me sitting cross-legged on the floor, watching a bald man work his magic on a portable telly with a bowl on my lap, and wondering why my mum had billed this particular pudding as a treat. After all these years, I'm finally brave enough to say it: Sara Lee nearly put me off cheesecake for life.

Sexual attraction This article is about sexual attraction among humans. For sexual attraction among other animals, see Animal sexual behaviour. Sexual attraction is attraction on the basis of sexual desire or the quality of arousing such interest.[1][2] Sexual attractiveness or sex appeal is an individual's ability to attract the sexual or erotic interest of another person, and is a factor in sexual selection or mate choice. Social and biological factors Human sexuality has many aspects. Which aspects of a person's sexuality attract another is influenced by cultural factors, and has varied over time, as well as personal factors. A person's physical appearance has a critical impact on their sexual attractiveness. As with other animals, pheromones may also have an impact, though less significantly in the case of humans. Many people exhibit high levels of sexual fetishism, and are sexually stimulated by other stimuli not normally associated with sexual arousal. Sexual attraction and high anxiety Enhancement

Picnicking in Paris: A Piece of Cake By Emily Hunt As the spring season fast approaches, there seems to be unconscious agreement that dropping everything to bask in a tepid spot of sunshine is a completely self-justified and rational human response. Deadlines and other commitments pale when compared to the striking radiance of that soft patch of grass in the middle-distance. On such occasions, a lazy Parisian pique-nique stands as not only a means of further indulging this simple pleasure but the fullest exorcism of winter blues available. There are, however, a few obstacles standing in the way of that baguette and you. Situated at the very heart of the city, on the western-most point of Ile de la Cité, the Square du Vert-Galant makes a wonderful location for an intimate picnic. Picnic enlightenment is surely to be found in the Bois de Vincennes, one of the ‘lungs’ of Paris. Another typically Parisian haunt, the Parc de Montsouris to the south of Paris offers the full picnic experience.
