50 Shades of Grey has given millions of people permission to begin exploring the kinkier side of sex. Attendance at fetish clubs and in online kinky communities are at an all-time high, and it is no longer taboo to admit your interest in exploring rough sex and role playing. As more and more people begin sampling from the banquet of BDSM and kink, it is important to remember that there is a wide spectrum of intensity to explore.

It is good to understand that in fact, if we are jealous of someone, this feeling comes about because we are projecting some un-lived aspect of ourselves onto the person we are jealous about. We are imagining that this person is able to have a level of fulfillment that we are denied.

Expressing your pleasure through sound initiates a primal place in your brain. “How silver-sweet sound lovers’ tongues by night, Like softest music to attending ears!” -William Shakespeare Remember the hushed make-out sessions of your youth?

What's more, an online survey over at SkinnyScoop.com reveals that a whopping 80 percent of women would prefer a massage to sex with their partner. This doesn't seem all that shocking to me. On most days, I'd prefer a box of Cheez-its to another round of unsatisfying sex.
