Energy is a word from which most people draw the definition of electricity, gas or some other form of power to produce movement or change. In the context in which we use it here, these definitions really aren't that far off from how practitioners like me would describe or explain energy. But what is an aura, you ask? Simply put, your aura is the space surrounding your physical being; it extends outward and upward and is approximately the length of your arms.

Ladies, if you're wondering why your sex life isn't as thrilling as you would like it to be, forget about picking up tips on how to wow his world from some self-help book or women's magazine. The answer may be as simple as shaping up the right muscles. "When it comes to great sex, preparing for a little fun in the bedroom isn't any different than what athletes go through to prepare for their sport," says Marta Montenegro, exercise physiologist and creator of the Montenegro Method. "You need the right amount of strength, power, flexibility, agility and stamina to perform at your best, which is why a well-designed exercise program is crucial."
We said a collective, "awww," after reading this story about Alan and Jan Coupe, winners of the Slimming World Couple of the year award, who lost 210 lbs between them after being told that they were too heavy to sit together on an airplane. To lose weight, the couple joined a weight-loss program, altered their diets, and began bike-riding and swimming together. Romantic, right? Now, the Coupes are almost unrecognizable. We love the idea of staying fit as a couple—not just for the obvious health benefits, but also for the bonding experiences. We're not sure how many of these weight-loss methods Alan and Jan tried, but we figure that the happy couple would approve.
My friend Rebecca and I noticed something strange about men when we were living in Spain. Despite the care we took to cultivate our respective “looks” whilst on the prowl (I went artsy, sex kitten Boho, Rebecca was a naughty tomboy), our greatest romantic triumphs never happened when we were all dolled up. During one sweaty afternoon, my friend and I came to realize we were most attractive to men when we were, of all things, jogging. Rebecca and I made it a habit to run around Madrid’s Retiro Park on sunny days. Always, we went without makeup. Unshowered. Hair in messy ponytails. Mismatched, though admittedly snug, running shorts. Not exactly the most glamorous of looks, but from the cat calls given to us by male passersby, you’d have thought we were Halle Berry and Julia Roberts on Oscar night. Back in the States, men seem to be equally bowled over by female joggers and, in general, get googly eyed around exercising women. Of
Here are my resolutions for 2010: to go to Bikram yoga three days a week, to get in touch with friends I haven't seen in awhile, to pursue a new hobby (maybe photography), and to take two really awesome vacations. Oh, and I have a few sex resolutions too. Last year I vowed to give less blow jobs (achieved!), but 2010 is here, I'm back on the blowie train, and I'm ready to make a few new sexy vows for the next decade. After the jump are 25 sex resolutions—a few of them are mine, but I'm not telling which. What are your sex resolutions for the new year?
In all your concern about cellulite and bikini body, you may have lost sight of the fact that guys are also self-conscious about being overweight. Seriously-nearly 45 percent of men claim to be dissatisfied with their body for one reason or another. And considering there's an obesity epidemic going on, there's good reason for that. So, while you may think that guys can take a little extra teasing about love handles, bingo wings and hungry butt, don't be so quick to call him out on those extra pounds. Specifically, avoiding the following oversize offensives will help you keep from leaving a bad taste in his mouth.
All teenage boys want to get laid: there are books that gaily depict their wanton need, as well as an entire genre of movies devoted to the subject. It seems that TLC decided to jump on the bandwagon with "650-Pound Virgin"—the story of David Smith, a (once) 650-pound outcast—that premiered on Sunday night. It was a shocking piece of television, but not for the reason you might think.
Everyone always seems to be on the constant search for more sleep. But catching a little shut-eye can also be the first thing discarded and overlooked when "life" gets in the way. According to a new study, however, getting enough sleep and the quality of a relationship are very much intertwined. Basically, it was found that not sleeping enough negatively affects relationship quality the following day. Conversely, negative relationship interactions during the day have an adverse affect on the quality of sleep that night. A vicious cycle to be sure.
Darrell's facial expression, upon realizing that the 38-year-old both out sang and out stripped her, was priceless. Good thing because the Idol castoff is probably down to her last penny after having mid-season boob job. "I was going to ask what's new," Ryan Seacrest said when Darrell took the stage, "but I think I know."
