Our True Self, Untouched by Life “I am convinced that there is another realm to experience when we are ready to go beyond this life to which we have become accustomed. This other realm defies our laws of science and logic. It is a place within each of us that is free of ordinary boundaries, rules and limitations.” Wayne Dyer
We understand that we spend a lot of time talking about condoms - when you are a Condom Subscription Service, you tend to do that. But what we have come to realize is we don't spend near enough time discussing the fun and sexy personal lubricants that can add more than a little zing to your next encounter. These days, personal lubricants are not only about helping with vaginal dryness, they have been updated to support you in reaching new heights of pleasure.
Whether you’re on a first date, or you’ve been married for a decade, what people want first and foremost in a relationship is to feel understood, validated, and supported. This can be tricky, especially when you are used to giving advice, seeing things differently, or what you hear “pushes your buttons.” Becoming a better listener is easier said than done, and in my counseling practice I typically spend a lot of time teaching couples this very skill.
Oh, Rush, Rush, Rush. Do you have any idea how deeply wounded you are? Do you not see how your thwarted view of the opposite sex is fueled by untold fear and confusion about what it means to be a man? Did you miss the sexual revolution of the 1960’s which has evolved into the awareness that sexual expression between caring, consenting adults can actually be emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually healthy?
There is nothing like mind games to put him in his place and remind him of the sex goddess you once were. Sometimes, women need to venture out and leave their man to his wiles.

Sometimes, we spend so much time wrapped up in our families, especially our men, that we often neglect ourselves and our own interests.
I know how frustrating it can be to work so hard to improve yourself to attract true love and not see results. I first learned about the law of attraction when I was in my early twenties when my best friend gave me some Louse Hay tapes called “You Can Heal Your Life.” It took such a long time to get my attraction vibe right.
Dating Insecurities is not the same thing as dating inhibitions but both scenarios will cause havoc in your love life if practiced on a regular basis. While the two are related, inhibitions can just be lack of experimentation or fear of the unknown. Insecurities can be a lot stronger where help may be needed from a therapist to change the deep rooted problem. What are some of the more common insecurities within our relationships?
Look around you today. Take a look at all the buildings. Take a look at the cars. Take a look at the houses. Take a look at the streets, look at the highways. Take a look at everything you see around you today, and ask yourself, “What is the common denominator to all of this?”
If you've been paying any attention at all, you're keenly aware that happily married couples are an endangered species. You probably know the divorce statistics (50%) and when you go to the grocery store, you see the magazine covers highlighting the breakups of politicians, athletes, singers, and actors.
As a therapist, I often hear couples complain that whenever one partner tries to get close, the other pulls away.
