Erectile dysfunction? Reduced reproductive ability? Groin sensitivity? These are both a man’s worst nightmare and the reality caused by most bicycle saddles. Saddle discomfort is one of the most pressing (yet least discussed) health issues in road cycling for men. Carbon fiber saddles can reduce bike weight, but they are hard and unforgiving, causing additional damage to the pubic region. The Xenon bike saddle concept has a custom 3D printed polyurethane elastomer mesh to reduce road vibrations, absorb impact, and distribute pressure evenly. The mesh is compressed in a firm carbon shell, providing the cyclist with a healthier alternative that won’t weigh down their [...]
Moyo almost drowned trying to cross a flooded river when she was just a few days old. Abandoned by her herd, the baby elephant was found just in time – a pack of hyenas was approaching her. Rangers took Moyo to Wild Is Life sanctuary, whose founder Roxy Danckwerts became the orphan’s new mom.
Now 14 months old, Moyo follows Danckwerts everywhere.”She knows my voice, my smell and somehow knows where I am at all times,” said Danckwerts. “How, I have no idea!” It’s getting trickier with time because Moyo keeps getting bigger and her raids around the house are more difficult to handle.
“She is one of those animals with whom I have formed an extraordinary bond of friendship, [...]

Ok, yes, this title is definitely a clickbait and I apologize to anyone who thought they would now get to see pictures of people having sex in the public space – if you really wanna see that though, I’m sure you know where to look for it 😉
I wasn’t lying though, I do take pictures of people making love, but do you really have to be naked to make love? Isn’t a hug, a kiss, or even just a smile, just as much a part of love making?
So for all the hopeless romantics out there, here’s a collection of lovebirds I caught right in the act…

Bottles are by far a designer’s favourite item to re-purpose. Head over to pinterest and you’ll scroll endlessly for days, looking at the kind of stuff people do with old bottles. With the Bottle Light, there’s an element of industrial design involved that we liked and we’re sure you will too. Designed to retrofit into any glass bottle, the light is a cork-shaped component with an LED at the bottom and actual cork on the top. Pop it onto any glass bottle to turn it into a luminary. The design also allows you to charge it via USB, which makes it quite a neat product to gift yourself or others!

You might know Swedish-born Rachel Brathen as an internet yoga sensation, but do you know her goat, Penny Lane? The Aruba resident received the goat as a gift from her surfer husband Dennis last Christmas and, since since then, Rachel and Penny have taken to doing yoga together. Rachel is a published author, and she and her husband also run an animal rescue center.
“Sometimes we get so caught up in what we want to change that we start seeing flaws instead of focusing on getting inspired to move and feel good,” Rachel explained to Metro. “It’s important to celebrate the good things. Your body does so much for you every day… It’s so much easier to stick to an exercise routine [...]
Named Antilope for its long legs, this high stool design by Mario Alessiani has plenty of character despite being flat pack and quite simple. It’s cleverly crafted from solid wood and a vibrant metal structure that attributes to its playful style. Every functional part is shown, highlighted with color and doubling as both a structural and aesthetic part of the object. No glue and no joints, just a handful of screws. The result is a stylish, solid high stool that’s easy to construct and even easier to deliver!
