“As I grew into my adolescence, I began to associate sex with sin; I imagine this had to do with being surrounded in a conservative religion in my home, church and school. My attitude about sex and sexuality was that it was something that only married or sinful people engaged in. Other than that I did not have much information – and because I was shy – the only place I got information about sex and sexuality was from TV, magazines and books”.
If you live with an alcoholic you will almost certainly feel shame. Some people will experience it to a very high level, others less so, but almost everyone who lives with an alcoholic experiences it to some degree. You will probably feel anxious that people will discover your secret, that they will judge you and, inevitably, will find you unacceptable to be around decent people.
Irish poet and dramatist Oscar Wilde once said, "Between men and women there is no friendship possible. There is passion, enmity, worship, love, but no friendship."
When dads make comments about women's bodies, daughters learn that their bodies and looks are open to comparison.
If you're an Intellectual Badass (IB), you're bound to date people who aren't as smart as you. Either you'll know more about your specific area of expertise, or you'll outsmart them across the board.
Thankfully, discussions on how to prevent tragedies such as Newtown, Conn. are filling the media and political arena. Debates will be heated and action will be painstakingly slow. You can wait for research to be done, debates to be held and laws to be passed or you can take action now in the place it matters most… with your own family. If every family in America embraced change within their own family the likelihood of another senseless tragedy could be reduced. We can start a grass roots movement that will be as powerful as any legislation that can be passed.
Question: I have a question about men being interested in watching transsexuals on a porn site and then having sexual dreams about penises. My boyfriend who is straight had a relationship with a transsexual about six years ago and still keeps in contact by phone. This issue has come up as it's interrupting our sex life since he'd rather watch she-male porn on the internet and jerk-off than have sex with me.
Happy New Year! I know you’ve had plenty of people tell you about goal setting, so I am not going to bore you with how to set goals or resolutions today. Today, I am telling you another true story. A client of mine, we’ll call her Jane, called me the other day with a burning question for me, and it took on an interesting twist. She started off by telling me about a guy friend of hers that she had worked with in the past. Steve, as we’ll call him, lives in another city. They talk via phone every now and then and text frequently.
Now is the best time of the year to get back online or revamp your online dating strategy. Statistics suggest that the time between Christmas and Valentine’s Day is when online activity increases dramatically. People are looking for love in the chilly winter months (especially in the upper half of the US) when they are stuck inside between these two holidays. That is why I have been recommending to my clients they get back online or consider revising their current online dating strategy ASAP!
16 years ago- just 2 days before Christmas, I found myself on a morphine drip in a hospital bed. The surgery was planned. What was a surprise was waking to find my husband looking down on me, announcing that we were getting a divorce. Suddenly, without my permission or input, my life changed horribly. I felt completely victimized by change… by the losses beyond my control. I was broken hearted, simpy powerless, and it felt like my influence over my own life and the lives of my children had ceased to exist.
