Sexy Homework

One question I get quite often is from a spouse who would like to explore something new and possibly exciting but is a bit unsure how the other partner feels about the subject and is nervous about bringing it up. For this VERY purpose I found a fun printable sexual interest worksheet that you and a partner can do to see where your sexual adventuring might take you.  The worksheet comes from a really fun comic book style book about sex.  This is the real deal just done in a graphic novel style- for grown ups!   Sex is Fun My suggestion would be to print TWO of the worksheets so that you both can do them independent of each other and then compare. This not only makes...

Embracing the Power of Lipstick

  I will admit that I have fallen head over heels for lipstick. Where I once thought it was the trite product used by aging matrons and hookers  I have found myself more and more called by the siren that is bold lipcolor. Sure, I always did chapstick or maybe a lip of lipgloss but never REAL lipstick. It was stuff you needed a mirror to put on and then you had to avoid kissing babies, that sort of lipstick just seemed like too much trouble. And then it happened.. Just like everyone else led down a path there is a gateway event.. or product. In my case my gateway product to the world of lipstick was Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm, Hibiscus, .15-Ounce (Pack of...

Sex and the Breastfeeding Mother

Sex and the Breastfeeding Mother

  I am an unrepentant fan of breastfeeding. I make no excuses that I breastfed all my children. Sometimes in tandem and most for well over 3 years each. I think breastfeeding is one of the best things you can do to get your child off to a healthy start. I not only breastfed for over 12 years, I spent many of those years as a lactation consultant working with mothers on a variety of issues from inverted nipples to inducing lactation in order to breastfeed an adopted baby. I have learned  the questions and secret fears women and men hold when it comes to breastfeeding, and there are a lot of them! Not everyone chooses to nurse and some encounter roadblocks...

The Lingerie Challenge – Do your Dainties Pass the Test?

The Lingerie Challenge – Do your Dainties Pass the Test?

Today I went shopping. In an effort to practice what I preach I went out to get some new bras and panties. This morning I noticed that mine were losing support and some of the matching panties had been lost to time. I lucked into some cute matching sets and then got an extra pair of matching panties for each. Bras tend to last longer for me than the panties so with two pairs of panties that match the bra I get a lot longer use out of the set. Yes, matching bras and panties, it is one of those odd things that makes me feel more put together and sexy each day.  I have had many women roll their eyes at this suggestion and then I challenge them to give it a try. All have...
