Sexual Satisfaction – What’s Really Going On?

There has been a sort of “credibility gap” concerning orgasms.  A study that was conducted at Indiana University’s Center for Sexual Health Promotion found that while 85 percent of men said their latest sexual partner reached orgasm, only 64 percent of women said that actually happened. “There’s this massive gap between men’s perception and women’s

Being good in bed means having a good bed!

How long has it been since you purchased a new bed?  If you can’t remember, then chances are you probably should buy a new one.  Suddenly Solos tend to keep their beds out of a sense of nostalgia – it was where they were happiest, or where they always read themselves to sleep, or perhaps

Thinking of Having An Affair? It’s not healthy

Thinking of Having An Affair?  It’s not healthy

You don’t have to be married to be unfaithful.  Being with another woman while you are “involved” carries the same element of deceit and it can be downright unhealthy.  A study conducted by researchers from the University of Florence, Italy revealed that men involved in long-term affairs were more than twice as likely to have

Don’t Forget The “Bright Work”

Don’t Forget The “Bright Work”

When I was in high school, I had a car-cleaning business. One thing I learned is that customers always noted the “bright work” first . . . the chrome, the glass, the mirrors. It often blinded them to the bulk of the car that I admit, might have been only so-so. It’s the same with
