Most likely, we all went through the sensation of “butterflies in the stomach”, “singing of the soul”, and inexplicable emotions. This sensation is usually called falling in love, and sometimes you can hear people saying ‘Cupid’s arrow hit me!’.
Have you ever wondered who Cupid is and why this character is so closely related to Valentine’s Day?
Cupid is a small winged “troublemaker” with a quiver of arrows behind his back, striking right in the heart. His image is found on paintings of different eras, and the legend of the God of love comes from ancient mythology, and also, he is known as Amur or Eros (ancient Greek version).
One of the myths is relating to an emotional love story between an earth girl named Psyche and the god Cupid. Venus is said to have been Cupid’s mother and sent him to punish Psyche, just because she did not like her unearthly beauty. Later, Cupid fell in love with Psyche and became her husband. Legend says that humans could not look at the gods, so Psyche did not know what her lover looked like. It is believed that Cupid was a true “revelation” of love and tenderness, and the girl was truly happy. One day, her sisters advised her to “look” at her husband. Cupid was so angry, and he decided to take revenge for her disobeying, and once he left, all their magical gardens, a wonderful castle, and everything they had – disappeared. Psyche was left alone and because of feeling so desperate, she decided to seek help from Cupid’s mother, and she accepted the task Venus gave her.
Venus, as written above, did not love Psyche at all, and she planned to destroy her, by giving her tasks that were impossible to accomplish. However, nothing stopped Psyche, so she successfully overcame all difficulties, for the sake of her lover. Psyche’s last task was to deliver Pandora’s box containing the beauty of Pluto’s wife, the condition was not to open the box, despite difficulties!
Unfortunately, out of curiosity, Psyche looked into the box. Venus had foreseen this and hid a “dead dream” there, so this hit her.
Cupid, being so crazy in love, found Psyche lying on the ground, took away the spell and the effect of the dead sleep, and forgave her, making their love even stronger. The gods proclaimed Psyche a goddess, as they were delighted to see how powerful was her love for Cupid.
We hope that true love exists, so Valentine’s Day is a great time to celebrate love and feel Cupid’s presence, even if sometimes we open the “Pandora’s Box”…
Love wins, xoxo, Happy Valentine’s Day!

Sex Toy software creator Kyle Machulis told Kokatu: “The amount of immersion you get when strapping TVs to your head is already massive, so putting vibrators and whatnot all over your body while you strap TVs to your head is the obvious next step.
The concept of combining video games and sex tech isn’t a new one, but the market that links the two together is growing.
Is Tinder Suitable for one-night stands?
Sometimes finding someone for a one-night stand is extremely complicated. If some of you don’t have time for dates or don’t want to settle down, consider the benefits of Tinder. It is one of the most popular dating platforms, and we can give several reasons for that. First of all, the platform is straightforward to use while it contains a lot of functions.

If you opt for the second option, rest assured that your personal information will be protected, or you can choose to fully express your personality.
How does Tinder work?
If you want to use this application, you must turn on your location. Tinder measures the distance between the people who propose to you and with whom you correspond. It is possible to sort out which people you want to “suggest” to you by setting the “maximum” distance you want, the age range, and the gender you are interested in. You need to write your name, age, occupation and briefly what you like. You have to put a picture, from one to six is possible.
You can also connect your Tinder with Instagram, so you have many more. When Tinder starts “throwing out” suggestions, all you have to do is swipe your finger across the smartphone screen. Left to “I don’t like”, right to “I like”, and there is also the option “I like it a lot”. If you accidentally make a mistake, you have the option to restore the profile in the lower right corner. When a person says they like you, you are “connected,” and the correspondence can begin.
One of the best things about this platform is that you can set clear boundaries. When creating a profile, you will see a large selection of features and filters that you can use to attract the right partners. So, if someone seems suspicious to you, you can simply reject them or not choose them. It is also not difficult to recognize fake profiles, while it is effortless to reach a person who has the same interests as you.
No one will judge you. You can express your sexuality, fantasies, fetishes, and everything else. These are the ideal conditions to find someone with whom you will have a crazy time. So, Tinder is definitely an excellent platform for couples who want a one-night stand. You will reach the ideal partner in a short time, and all you need is to swipe.
Everyone can, without any restrictions, meet people around the world who also use this dating application. All you have to do is choose the location you want or just pin yourself somewhere on the world map. The location is changed easily, in the settings, in the “Passport” option. When you do that, then you can swipe the people who live there.

MARVEL COMICS UNVEILS ITS FIRST-EVER TRANSGENDER MUTANT
With Pride Month right around the corner, Marvel Comics has revealed its first-ever transgender mutant, Escapade, set to appear in Marvel’s Voices: Pride #1.
The superhero, whose real name is Shela Sexton, has the power to trade places with anyone. Accompanied by her sidekick “genetically engineered flying turtle” Hibbert, she will be embarking on a journey with her “best friend and fellow trans mutant” Morgan Red, as explained by Marvel in a blog post.
“I wish I could hang out with Shela in real life. She is a total goofball, a cool weirdo who has a super strong sense of justice and a profound loyalty to her friends,” co-creator Charlie Jane Anders spoke of Escapade. “Until recently, she believed that everything would always be okay as long as she and Morgan were there for each other, but lately she’s been realizing life is more complicated than that.” She additionally commented on Morgan Red and her relationship with Escapade: “I wanted Shela to have a really strong relationship that she could be anchored to. I spent a lot of time thinking about Morgan and how they and Shela had grown up together. I eventually arrived at the thing where Morgan was there for Shela when she was first transitioning, and the two of them kind of supported each other through their transitions when they were kids.”
Anders added that she wanted to make sure the story is inclusive. “It was really important to me to have a whole community of trans mutants in this comic — not just Shela and Morgan, but others… I wanted it to be super clear that being a mutant is not a metaphor for being trans, and vice versa.”
Marvel’s Voices: Pride #1 will release on June 22, with a continued New Mutants story currently in the works. Read more about Escapade here.
