Psychopathy: the character trait that predicts risky sexual behavior and hypersexuality in both males and females Sexual coercion is a mark for both male and female psychopaths. Painting above: Frederic Leighton - The Fisherman and the Syren - c.1856-1858 In one of the largest studies of its kind ever published, US psychologists have found a particular aspect of personality in men and women, predicts what the researchers refer to as 'hypersexuality'. The 'hypersexual' have more sexual partners than the rest of the population, fantasise more about others than their current partner, and tend to favour more sex without love. They take greater pleasure in casual sex with different partners, and don't need attachment to enjoy lovemaking. Hypersexuality was found strongly linked with a particular aspect of personality.

On The Spot About On The Spot is an award-winning documentary series, digging for human stories behind the news with two cameras, without a crew, giving the films extraordinary intimacy and honesty from the revolution in Egypt to earth quakes in Japan. The motto of the series is from Robert Capa, the Hungarian war photographer: "If your pictures aren't good enough, you're not close enough." The filmmakers have received the Press Freedom Award in Strasbourg from the Council of Europe, the Prix Jury in Karlovy Vary at the Tourfilm Festival and the Golden Nymph as Best Documentary at the Monte Carlo TV Festival. "On The Spot: Gaza" has got the Gold Plaque at the 50th Chicago International Film Festival TV-Awards and the prize for "Best Foreign Short Documentary" at the American Documentary Film Festival in 2014.

Watercolor Painting One of my favorite types of art is watercolor painting. Watercolors are a great way to introduce a child to painting -- they are fun and easy to clean up. It's also the media to try if you want to paint, but you have a limited amount of space or time. Easy to set up, interrupt, and pick up again, these paints provide a great deal of flexibility. Watercolors differ from other paints in that they are transparent. When light meets the paint, it actually travels through the paint to the white paper beneath, then bounces back from the paper.

Gripping Tutorials on How to Draw Hands Sharebar The human hand, for some of us, is one of the most challenging things to master drawing. It is important especially for those who are serious about pursuing a career in drawing. Apart from being the primary focus of a character’s actions, the hand may also serve as one of the key elements that could make the emotions and mood of a character apparent through hand gestures. As someone who has been drawing for the rest of his life, I had my fair share of drawings with the character’s hands somehow hidden from view just to hide the fact that I can’t draw them.
