Be honest. What do you see first when looking at your naked body in the mirror? Do you immediately go for a flaw? Do you instantly obsess over something you don't like?

After all, if he's gotten that far with you, he's attracted to you. He thinks you're hot, sexy, and he he wants to make love to you. If you don't like your body, that feeling will come across when you're having sex

The minute he touches a part of your body that you don't accept, you're going to freeze up, and the man is going to feel that and wonder, Did I do something wrong? Keep Reading ...

The Magic Of Make Believe

By

I read a great quote. “My heart here is my secret, very simple secret, is only with the heart that one can rightly see what is essential, is invisible to the eye”.
