Sex and Intimidation: Ways to introduce new sex practices without fear

In love, marriage, relationships, sex on February 27, 2014 at 3:40 am

When I was 15, 4 boys–okay, at least 1 of them was over 18 and the other 3 were between the ages of 17-19,  tried to harass me into giving them oral sex.

Because for once in my young adult life I stood up for myself and said no to them, I was sprayed in the eyes with chemicals by one of these jerks. That was my “treat” for saying no. How dare I have the balls to refuse to be these jerks’s sex objects. It was a painful experience, and I ended up with a small cyst on my eyelid that ended up going away at some point, but the memory did not fade.

Now while this story is certainly a real buzz killer, it can be used to say so much more If you want someone to have sex with you, being nice is certainly a must, but there are also other things you can do to introduce new sex acts into your relationship without being intimidating or disrespectful. Here are my tips on how to gradually introduce your partner to a new sex habit, sans intimidation, as that never works. Read the rest of this entry »

So I don’t wear yoga pants and I’m loud: Be my friend Mothers!

In friendship, motherhood on February 27, 2014 at 3:22 am

I don’t wear yoga pants unless I am at the gym.

I arrive at my daughter’s early morning dance class in makeup and “clothes” that aren’t yoga pants or sweat-suits.

I might be totally cool with my daughter being loud in public sometimes also.

I might also join her.

That might have been me, singing broadway in a Target store, but I will never tell.

I might not love cooking, and I might just find all of reality television to be the death of me, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be my friend, mothers.

You’re so Pretty: what we say to girls

In girl empowerment, motherhood, parenthood on February 25, 2014 at 6:47 pm

I have a daughter, in case you’ve never read my blogs before. She’s almost 3, and absolutely adorable. Sure, I am biased, but according to audiences aged 5 and up, she gets a resounding “cute” vote.

And hey, there’s nothing that pumps my small ego more than the words, “You look beautiful today,” but in fact, that’s most of the problem or all of the problem.

The bad porn look

In humor, sex on February 24, 2014 at 3:37 am

I guess by stating that there is a bad porn “look,” this implicates me as being a viewer of porn.

And to be honest, I don’t often watch it because I think most of it sucks (bad plot line, often male point of view, cheesy actors), but when I do, I notice things.

I’m paying attention. What can I say, I’m a great student. 3.75 at Columbia.

And a 4.0 at deciding what porn looks need to go.

Here’s my input, in case anyone gives a crap.

Vanilla or Chocolate? The case for being kinkier, especially if you’re married

In humor, marriage, relationships, sex on February 20, 2014 at 3:40 am

See this chocolate ice cream? Doesn’t it look delicious? Don’t you want to run out right now, and buy some? Don’t you want to rip the spoon off the screen, and dig in?

Now, imagine looking at this same bowl of ice cream every day, for years.

Would you still have the same voracious appetite for said ice cream?

You might still want to eat it, and you’d probably still lick the bowl, but don’t you think eating the same treat each night is a little dull?

One snobby mom begets another…snobby kid

In motherhood, parenthood on February 20, 2014 at 3:25 am

I really cannot stand snobbery. Even if I eventually don’t like a person, I am most often always nice to a person initially. There’s no need to assume you are better than someone, and if you think you are, chances are, you definitely aren’t.

But what really pushes my easily-aroused buttons, are moms who are snotty little biotches. When you take your kid to a public playgroup or storytime, chances are you should expect other people to talk to you and your kid. Well, apparently this princess didn’t. Read the rest of this entry »

‘Cause I’m a Blonde: Bubbly & Blonde does not equal dumb

In humor, life, women's issues on February 20, 2014 at 3:11 am

I smile a lot. I even wear pink and red. Okay, I lied. I wear LOTS of pink and red. I might have even had pink hair at one time. I do own a pair of hot pink converse. I do like matching toe and nail polish. I absolutely detest lint on clothing, beading material on sweaters, being seen in sweats when it’s not at my home, the gym, or the doctor’s office, and grouchy people.

I might even giggle loudly.

I even smile and sometimes say hello to strangers. I’m nice to everyone: from the person who makes my tea to the dude who takes out the garbage, I’m nice.

And look: do you see? Read the rest of this entry »

Don’t be intimidated by a more experienced woman, men

In love, men, relationships, sex on February 17, 2014 at 3:40 am

This is going to be short and sweet, like me, because I haven’t been sleeping much and my eyes are killing me…

Men. Or Women who love women, or who love women part of the time, or just sometimes, when they’re bored.

Don’t be intimidated by a more experienced women. And here’s 4 reasons why you shouldn’t be…

In humor, love, marriage, relationships, sex on February 15, 2014 at 7:45 pm

Men.

Women.

Anybody.

If you’re buying a gift for a woman, why haven’t you considered the gift that keeps on giving? The vibrator?

Are you embarrassed? Do you think that it is dirty to masturbate?

Well you might, but here are a few reasons and situations why you might consider buying your ladyfriend a battery-operated toy.

When to Talk to Your Kids About Slavery, War, & Other Horrific Acts of Humanity

In education, motherhood, parenthood on February 15, 2014 at 7:29 pm

Today at storytime, the reader pulled out an interesting book.

To back up, this storytime consisted of kids aged 1 years to 7 years old. There is no age restriction, but the majority of the children were between 2-4. It was quite a young audience, so I was surprised to see what the reader chose.

Henry’s Freedom Box, by Ellen Levine is an excellent book that talks about slavery. If you look at Scholastic.com’s recommended reading age, you will see it says grades 3-5.

So imagine my (and the other parents’ surprised faces) as the reader began to read a story about a family being sold off as slaves.
