To test this hypothesis, we recruited a nationally representative sample of 102 participants to a listening experiment. We
A pilgrimage is a rite of passage. There are few rites of passage for us to meet our erotic selves. For us to learn about our body and its connection to our pleasure and our soul. You have to make a choice in your life when you consider making a pilgrimage.
Because the society we live in affects our lives, we need to understand social issues to the same degree we understand our own personal problems. We need to bring about social change so that we can live more freely and happily.
The researchers can't say for certain -- they didn't analyze this in the study -- but here's how it might work: Mindfulness
There's little question that humans are wired for music. Researchers recently discovered that we have a dedicated part of
Not surprisingly, we see that depressed mood and sexual concerns and difficulties -- including changes in sexual desire and lowered arousal -- are often intertwined. SSRIs can cause many types of sexual concerns, such as the inability to have an orgasm.
Of course, I don't believe we should see literature in a wholly utilitarian light. If we read only because it serves us well

Yet the idea of aphrodisiacs as the secret ingredient for love has intrigued us for centuries.

Most of us say we want happiness, enjoyment and pleasure, but until we truly believe that we deserve it and take inspired action to bring more of it into our lives we will only ever experience the tinniest taste of what we could have.
Feelings and emotions that motivate or paralyze us lie within the limbic system. Our awareness that our emotional life colors our performance can liberate us from some brain chains.
In this day and age, women have won the right to vote, to burn our bras, and to climb the corporate ladder. Why do we still find it a challenge to be honest in the bedroom? And could this duplicity potentially lead us astray when looking for Mr. Right?
That nugget of wisdom hit me right in the spot the truth spot. Dead on. It was one of those moments when time stood still and I had a deep YES.
