Male Canary Brains Bathed In Testosterone Hit The Seductive High Notes

Seducing a female canary isn’t easy. They are picky, frankly, looking for males particularly adept at singing “sexy syllables” that may indicate their overall genetic robustness. Researchers have previously determined that unlike most vocal notes produced by a male canary, the sexy trills require “extraordinarily fast and coordinated alternation between the left and right sides of the syrinx (the avian vocal organ) more than 16 times a second.

For the male canary capable of executing this performance — even on tape — caged female canaries assume postures inviting copulation.

Now researchers at John Hopkins University have bathed the entire brain of male canaries with testosterone to see if male canaries sing better songs capable of seducing females.  It’s known that the medial preoptic nucleus part of a canary brain — or POM — controls sexual motivation. POM operates in humans as well.

In this recent study, researchers created three groups of male canaries: 1) POM only testosterone application; 2) entire brain testosterone application; and 3) no testosterone given. The results confirmed that while male canaries receiving the POM only applications of testosterone sang more frequently than the control, they couldn’t hit the seductive trills required to inspire the female canary to copulate. Only males receiving the entire brain bath of testosterone could pull off the five-star performance.

“The quality of the song that is required to successfully attract a mate and then the process of attending to the female, or singing to her, when she is there … requires the coordination of multiple brain regions,” says graduate student Beau Alward, the lead investigator.

Promising insights may also come for seduction among humans, given the reality that like humans, the canary brain is able to change its neural pathways and synapses in response to changes in behavior, the seasonal environment, and injury.  “The hormones in these birds are identical to those in humans and they can regulate brain changes in a similar manner,” said Gregory F. Ball, vice dean for science and research infrastructure and professor in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences in the Zanvyl Krieger School of Arts and Sciences. via 


Keira Knightley On Feminism For Harper's Bazaar UK Feb 2014 By Alexi Lubomirski

Keira Knightley covers Harper’s Bazaar UK’s February issue, wearing looks from Chanel’s spring-summer 2014 collection. Keira, who is lensed by Alexi Lubomirski, chats up a number of topics with Bazaar’s Sophie Elmhirst. At the top of the list: feminism.

I think it’s great that the discussions are finally being allowed to be had [about feminism], as opposed to anybody mentioning feminism and everybody going, ‘Oh, f***ing shut up,’” says Keira.  ”Somehow, it [feminism] became a dirty word. I thought it was really weird for a long time, and I think it’s great that we’re coming out of that.

Beyoncé, Joan Smalls, Jourdan Dunn & Chanel Iman In Yoncé Video

I’d say Beyoncé has aced out GQ, Esquire, Treats!, Galore — you name them, guys. Models Joan Smalls, Jourdan Dunn and Chanel Iman join Beyoncé in this ‘Yonce’ video from her latest album, released this week as a total surprise.

“I think Beyoncé wanted to push that angle (the hottest black models) — that was her request and concept initially. I think any time you can promote a sense of community and unity and that is natural, you should,” the video’s director Ricky Saiz told The Cut. “All the girls are friends and it was so friendly and there was no ego on set. Everyone was so happy to be there. The girls were incredible. What a great cast. It was spontaneous and not at all contrived.”

Allison P. Davis calls the video “a paean to nineties-era eroticism and subtle sexuality — think bondage, flashes of skin, close-ups of lips, and a quick erotic tongue flick. Read on — her Saiz interview and commentary is excellent.

Léa Seydoux & Adèle Exarchopoulos Recreate 'Blue Is the Warmest Color'by Mikael Jansson for Interview November 2013

Léa Seydoux & Adèle Exarchopoulos recreate intimate scenes from their prestigious Palme d’Or Cannes Film Festival stunner Blue Is The Warmest Colour, directed by French-Tunisian auteur Abdellatif Kechiche. Mikael Jansson captures the sensual magic with styling by Karl Templer. / Hair by Yannick d’Is; makeup by Hannah Murray

When the Cannes jury, chaired by Steven Spielberg, ruled that Léa & Adèle gave such stunning performances that the director should share the award with his actors, the trio celebrated. The Guardian writes:

And then things took a strange turn. The actors gave interviews in which they talked about Kechiche’s tortuous process: how every scene had taken for ever, and how he had insisted on take after take until they felt they were cracking up. They said an explicit sex scene had taken 10 days and that they had to lie on the bed fumbling with each other, cold and naked, hour after hour. “Most people don’t even dare to ask the things that he did, and they’re more respectful,” Exarchopoulos told the Daily Beast. Seydoux said that at times she felt “like a prostitute”. A heartbreaking separation and reunion was shot and reshot until they felt battered and delusional. Exarchopoulos complained that the director had made Seydoux hit her repeatedly across the face in a fight scene. No wonder she cries so convincingly.

Then the director fired back. He said the actors were spoiled, didn’t know what real suffering was, that he felt “humiliated” and that he didn’t want the film released because the audience would no longer be able to watch it objectively.

Now the dust has settled, with the filmmaker admitting that he hired the two actresses with an interest in making a political statement. Like his heroines, Léa Seydoux, granddaughter of the chairman of Pathé, “comes from an extremely wealthy, bourgeois, very comfortable milieu” and plays Emma. Relative neophyte Adèle Exarchopoulos, who “comes from something that is definitely much more modest,” plays Adèle.

Within this context, director Abdellatif Kechiche says that Blue Is ‘The Warmest Color’ in not just about sapphic sex. The theme of social class divisions are a key part of his artistic focus. The LA Times wrote last week that despite its NC-17 rating and three hour length, the film is off to a solid start.
