Middle School Memories Of Having Been Called A "Hooch"

I’m 32 and I don’t know if I have ever fully recovered from seventh grade. When I graduated my beloved elementary school and went to a much bigger middle school across town, some of my old classmates also switched to the same middle school, one of whom was my sixth grade ex-boyfriend. We had a messy “separation” after I came back from summer camp and realized that he was no longer interested in knowing me anymore, no less holding my hand at the park and buying me beanie babies.

Jennifer Love Hewitt Is In Love With Her Boobs, But Guys Aren't?

Formally known as Sarah Reeves on Party of Five, Jennifer Love Hewitt is making headlines for something different these days.

She spilled in her latest interview with the famous magazine, "Whenever you guys call and say it's time to be on your cover, I'm like, 'OK, I’m in good shape.' And when you don't call, I'm like, 'I guess I should hit the gym.'"

"Am I Ugly?"—A Heart Breaking Video Makes News

I saw an article on Huffington Post this morning that made me cringe. I was so stunned, I had to write a post immediately. According to to one NYU Child Study Center study 59 percent of girls in 5th through 12th grade are "dissatisfied with their physical appearance."  Research also shows that little girls' self esteem peaks at, are you ready for this, age 8. Further, a girl’s self esteem “PLUMMETS” after age 9. Yikes.

Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Models & Your Self Esteem

Each year when the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue is released I hear about it. Not because I'm a big fan of swimsuits, or super models, or even of sports for that matter, but because my therapist husband (as a recovering sex addict) specializes in helping men whose sexual behaviors have become self-defeating in ways that are interfering with day-to-day living—causing stress on family members, friends and/or work. These guys have issues around sexualizing and objectifying women so they can tend to have more than just a passing awareness of the winter release of that swimsuit model issue.

Riding High In The Saddle: How To Be A Confident Cowgirl

Riding on top doesn’t mean crushing a man with all your weight. If it did, even a 110 pounds woman would be too heavy for most men to handle. Think about what you really do in the saddle. Don’t you use your thighs and, sometimes, your outstretched arms, to support you while your hips bob up and down or gyrate to an inner rhythm? The trick is doing enough strength training outside the bedroom to manage the workout that your legs get during sex.
