Apologies in advance for the WebMD-esque post, but I honestly trust you more than other random people on the internet.
I broke my thumbnail about halfway back and it folded over on itself and ripped partly off. I flipped it back down and made an watertight duct tape bandage for it. I don't really know much about the nail matrix.
My plan is to keep it in the duct tape for two or three days at a time, then let it breathe for a little while, then two or three more days and so on until it grows out again, because I want to keep it on top of the skin beneath it, and keep that skin moist and soft so my thumbnail will grow back normal and I won't have to cut it short for the rest of my life.
Is this a good idea, or should I give it more air? I won't let the normal skin suffocate or anything, but does the skin under the nail actually need to dry more to heal well? Should I try to lift the nail again and put some bacitracin on it, or will that make it worse? And will the skin reattach to the broken piece of nail, or only to the new nail as it grows out?

>The neocortex is made up of six layers, labelled from the outer in, I to VI. In humans, the neocortex is involved in higher functions such as sensory perception, generation of motor commands, spatial reasoning, conscious thought and language.
>The average numbers of neocortical neurons were 19 billion in female brains and 23 billion in male brains, a 16% difference. In our study, which covered the age range from 20 years to 90 years, approximately 10% of all neocortical neurons are lost over the life span in both sexes. Sex and age were the main determinants of the total number of neurons in the human neocortex, whereas body size, per se, had no influence on neuron number.

Hello again, /sci/. It's been a couple years (I think) since I last made a thread, and this is pretty much the same topic, though more properly detailed, I think.
I'm a 19 year old female and I have never had an orgasm. I feel very VERY minimal sexual pleasure upon insertion (via masturbation. I am a virgin) and can very rarely feel any "pleasure" out of clitoral stimulation.
Before, I said I didn't feel anything out of the latter because I didn't know I could. I was recently trying and it was a feeling I can't really describe, though it only lasted for a couple seconds before going back to feeling like nothing decent again. Upon the "pleasure" sensation, I find it very difficult to control my hands or concentrate on what is going on around me, but I was wondering why it is that it only lasts for such a short period of time?
Also, what is the problem with insertion? Before, I didn't really feel anything, and now I feel a little bit more since I bought a dildo. (If this is necessary, it's about an inch in diameter and when I first tried using it, it was very uncomfortable, but I found that with plenty of lube, it works just fine.)
I ask again, do you think this is a physical or a mental thing that is wrong with me? I've been really unsure of having sex because I can't imagine faking it to be that much fun, and I don't want to displease my potential partner by just laying there like a dead body waiting for him to finish.
Also, my mother was a drug addict (Cocaine/Meth were her drugs of choice.) but she stopped using once she found out she was pregnant with me, and she claims to have not used at all when nursing me. If she used early on in my fetal development, could this be the cause of my dysfunctional ladybits?
