Matt is a GR8NESS contributing writer on such subjects as pets, CBD, pain relief, sexual health, time management, and family & parenting. When he's not placed in the awkward position of referring to himself in the third person, Matt tries to keep two Dachshunds, an 18-year old daughter, and one wife blissfully happy but not necessarily in that order.
Yep. Sure is! No question about it. Now, you might be asking yourself, "Matt, how can you make a statement with such a sense of conviction?" Easy, I'm the owner of a pair of testicles. Trust me, GR8 friends, Blue Balls is all-too-real. And I've got the science to back...

1:02 am — a darkened bedroom. Two bodies writhe in a pile of twisted, tortured sheets. The man, chest hairs damp with sweat, turns to the woman and says, “I can’t seem to get an erection." Unfortunately, it’s pretty typical for guys my age. I wouldn’t worry about it. You continue...
There are certain moments in a man’s life that he looks back upon with a deep sense of fondness and great appreciation. A digital rectal exam (DRE), or prostate exam does not fall into that category. That’s not to say that you won’t remember it—trust me—you will. But, as with...
Intermittent fasting is an eating strategy where a person eats food during certain times of the day but deprives themselves of food during other parts of the day. A person on an intermittent fasting schedule will usually deprive themselves of food for long periods, typically 16 hours, and consume food...
