It's hard to make it through a single day without coming across some kind of something that promises to amp up your sex life. Whether it's ads singing the praises of the newest pill to boost your sex drive, perfume made from pheromones that supposedly attract every member of the opposite sex within 200 feet, or just plain ol' oysters and chocolate, at one point or another you've likely found yourself wondering —do aphrodisiacs work?
In case you haven't heard, couples do some pretty sick sh*t. While we all know that part of the wooing process is remaining on your absolute best behavior, once you're past the initial burst associated with the honeymoon phase, there's a pretty good chance that things will get a bit more down and dirty. And if you've yet to do any of the gross things people in love do, then I'm sorry, but it's probably not love —at least not yet.
Regardless of which side of the fence you're on when it comes to the Fifty Shades franchise, there's no denying that it has inspired many people to not only explore their sex preferences more deeply, but also to get their feet wet in the massively expansive world of kink and BDSM. And while it's clear that Fifty Shades is a not-so-realistic take on actual BDSM relationships, that hasn't stopped people from gobbling it up.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
