Autumn is here — hope y’all are happy, because I’m certainly not. According to some, basic autumn bros are the happiest dudes on Earth.

Et Tu, Brussels Sprouts?
Meat-eaters are largely seen as the riskiest demographic when it comes to nutrition-related health issues, but have we been sleeping on the risks associated with an all-veg diet? Some scientists believe so, buoyed by a recent study released in the BMJ which suggests vegetarians are more likely than omnivores to suffer from a certain kind of stroke.

What does it mean to a verified amateur on Pornhub? The coveted blue checkmark has navigated its way from Twitter, Instagram and Facebook to everyone’s favorite tube site, and it separates the kinda-maybe amateurs from the real-deal Holyfield ones.
