Some of the most obvious developments happen in the sex toy business. Every year, there are dozens of flashy, new sex toys that promise to add new dimensions to the experience of sexual pleasure. So, if this is the case, why have I never mentioned them before?
Imagine a typical holiday party: You and your friends, dressed to impress, feeling celebratory and reflecting on the best parts of the past year, and maybe even talking about your goals for the next one. There's food, laughter, and probably alcohol.
On Sept. 15, 2016, I had my first hypnotherapy session with renowned hypnotist Richard Brker, and ever since that day I have become 'Unf**kablewith.'
Rejection from someone we have feelings for sucks, even if it's on the smallest scale of an unanswered text. I mean really, we all know that his/her cell is an extension of their hand or isn't more then a foot away.
'Do you think God is punishing me for having sex with a man 20 years younger than me?' This was the question I asked a close friend when I was about to file for bankruptcy back in 2011. I was 55-years-old, and yet my Christian upbringing still had a stranglehold on my sexuality.
I believe it's safe to say that all married women have fantasized, at least once, about having sex with another partner during their healthy, happy, and loving marriage. Her fantasy may be a secret affair with a celebrity, someone at the office, or perhaps just a sexy and willing figment of her imagination.
It seems that no matter how many nude events I attend, I spend weeks beforehand feeling anxious -- wasting so much energy on negativity, feelings of insecurity about body image, or wanting to look my best nude.
She's sexy, she's experienced, and she's not shy about using her mature charm to lure in eager younger men. She's a Cougar, and for most people in modern society, she is an utter mystery.
Nudity will be optional for the press -- but mandatory for all guests.
Bette Davis once said, in her classic no-nonsense way, 'Old age ain't no place for sissies.' She even had a sofa pillow embroidered with the quote for all her guests to see. Having just turned 60 myself, I'm beginning to believe wholeheartedly that Bette was spot-on with her message.
"BDSM involves trust, compassion, love, acceptance, erotica, and surrendering control … along with a few necessary beatings."
Today, in the middle of the bustling city, was the annual BodyPainting Day NYC, and for the first time ever, I was ready to join the fun.
Guess what? Driving a race car, coloring, watching a movie, or practicing BDSM can all be forms of meditation too. It's not about the yoga poses -- it's about letting go of the relentless mind chatter and focusing solely on the present moment.
I think it's safe to say that we can all get a sense of what Hippocrates meant when he stated that 'All disease begins in the gut.' At some point in time we have all felt the disease of indigestion, gas, bloating, acid reflux, constipation, or diarrhea, whether mild or intense.
When I say 'sex,' what are your first thoughts? They probably involve the physical parts of sex, such as touching or orgasm. Some of you might be daydreaming about specific desires or fantasies. Below these thoughts, though, we all have at least two needs that we are unconsciously working to balance.
Yoga is an amazing stress reliever that will make you mentally and physically stronger as well as more agile and flexible, but did you know that yoga has the potency to enhance sexual performance and increase your ability to enjoy a more powerful orgasm?
Sexual fetishes are frequently misunderstood and stigmatized because they're so specific and can be so intense, but as long as the experience is positive and both the fetishist and partner feel good about the fetish and experience, it's healthy.
