Bring Outdoors Inside

Introduction Science finally catches up with what we knew by instinct. Having spent more time outdoors than in, I can testify to the benefits of being outside. My therapist recently pointed out that most of my photo albums that showed me smiling as I was growing up were taken outdoors. My inside face was usually solemn and subdued. In nature or outside, you feel better, have more energy, burn more calories (ever wonder why you’re hungrier when you’re outdoors?), get sunshine (your body converts to Vitamin D), smile more and generally stay more focused.

While more than half the population of the United States says they’ve watched porn, for example, and traffic to websites like PornHub tally more than 40 billion visitors annually (with the U.S. firmly leading the pack), 56 percent of Americans think that porn is “morally wrong.” Sentiments regarding off-camera sex work are similarly divided, though recent years have seen increasing support for the idea of decriminalizing it. The idea of regulating sex work leads to messy […]
