Good health and a quality sex life really do go hand in hand. Take care of yourself from a health standpoint and you’ll definitely reap the benefits in the bedroom sooner or later. You don’t have to stop at pumping iron and making sure to maintain a healthful, balanced diet though. Even something as simple as your choice in sexual positions can really give you a boost.
Why is it that in a sexually progressive society that encompasses all genders and sexual orientations that just discussing the nature and methodology of sex is still seen as something that is quite taboo in social circles?
The whole losing weight thing is not the easiest thing to accomplish and it's hard to do. Especially when you have to work so hard at it and put in so many hours and most of the time it's really not that enjoyable. Am I right?
The extensive debate around sex and consent pique my complete interest. We naturally have heard of compelling stories and carefully followed the published news uniquely related to rape allegations, where initially the consenting parties intimately agreed to intimate acts, only later for the other person to turn around and say thoughtfully they were persistently violated. In my personal experience, a devoted friend said reassuringly she was raped following consented sex, as she felt terrible for having intercourse and likely not making it to merciful heaven.
Why does no one speak about healthy sexual activity post-child rearing? Are we unconsciously still a society that views sex as a means for reproduction or are we a culture that is sex positive for pleasure? Healthy sexual activity and release is a natural part of living and does not stop just because our libidos decrease in intensity. However, as a society, we label the aging as non-sexual beings. A lot of couples’/ individual’s identities revolve around their sexual intimacy and when aging makes that more difficult, tensions can increase, causing interpersonal issues. Unhealthy sexual activity, lack of, or difficulties with sexual activity can lead to mental health issues—an issue almost all adults face at one point, but no one seems to be talking about it. It is so important for therapists to not only focus on the sexual dysfunction that services are being sought, but also what the couple/individual wants from their sexual experiences, sexual aspirations, and the use or addition of enhancement products like vibrators, lube, pills, and clothing (Clay, 2012). According to Skultety, in 2007 there were over 1,000 books on Amazon.com regarding old age and sex. This underlines the scale to which this is a problem. Cross-sectional studies showed that older adults maintain positive attitudes towards sex. The study showed that 90 percent of individuals 70-years-old and over disagreed that “sex is only for younger people” (Skultety, 2007). Attitudes seemed consistent amongst older Caucasian individuals expressing, “people should not have sexual relationships if they are not married” might be the root of the issue. It is beneficial to clients to provide psychoeducation on the options available for older adults, especially those involving physical dysfunctions that have alternate treatment options.
We all know how open I am about sex and how I love to tell stories about my countless sexual encounters. Sex is amazing, there's no denying that, but it's my vice and it has been since I lost my V card. Anytime I'm irritated or sad or angry or even happy, I turn to sex. Most people see sex as an intimate experience between two people who are in love. Some even say you give a piece of your soul when you have sex. But for me, sex is just something to take my mind off of everything, to turn my brain off for a moment, and enjoy the act.
A sexual soul-tie is when 2 individuals come together and get sexually intimate. After the sexual act, both individuals may leave with heavy spiritual negative burdens, that will in turn end with a negative consequence.
You probably know who I'm talking about. That guy you saw today at the red-light. Or the one you ALWAYS bump into at the gas station in the morning.
Those who know me by now know that I talk about the heavy subjects not many would like to talk about. For me though, this is exactly the type of article my nasty mind loves to read. Some TMI moments are in this article, so if you feel uncomfortable, just know that I warned you.
Persistent Sexual Arousal Syndrome (PSAS), is a real medical condition that primarily affects women. PSAS can probably be compared to priapism in men. Priapism is an erection lasting for more than four hours and is considered a medical emergency for men. Constant sexual arousal, unrelieved by sex or orgasm, is the defining characteristic of this disorder. This is a very serious condition that is very stressful for the one who suffers from it.
We live in a hyper-sexualized society, but we seldom talk about the reality of sex, and even less about the reality of sexual problems.
It's a new year and many people are making resolutions, heading back to the gym and changing up their diets. There are a lot of more serious commitments made around this time of year: career goals, improving finances and travel. Sexual adventures can be part of the game too, and setting new goals with your partner/lover is a fun way to ring in the new year. Here are three ideas to consider spicing up things for 2019:
