Nadine Lustre’s father gets tattoo of semicolon and ‘Keep Going’

Too much sex may be a sign of a sick mind – WHO

GENEVA, Switzerland -- The World Health Organization has recognized "compulsive sexual behavior" as a mental disorder, but said Saturday it remained unclear if it was an addiction on a par with gambling or drug abuse.

But the UN health body stops short of lumping the condition together with addictive behaviors like substance abuse or gambli...Keep on reading: Too much sex may be a sign of a sick mind – WHO.....»»

Even after more than a year away from the tour, even after a health scare while having a baby a little more than 10 months ago, Williams is still capable of dominance. Especially at Wimbledon, where she's one victory from an eighth championship. A relatively routine 6-2, 6-4 semifinal victory over 13th-seeded Julia Goerges of Germany on Thursday put Williams into her 10th final at the All England Club and moved her closer to a 24th Grand Slam title, which would equal Margaret Court's record.
