Parties that Go Buzzzz

It sounds a bit like the start of a  joke.. ~Did you ever hear the one about the sex-blogger who went to  intimate toy party?~ and yet once again there I was at yet another party where women sat around and tittered and blushed while all manner of hot and tingly lotions and balms where slathered on our arms and buzzing whirling things were passed about accompanied by laughter, consternation and questions about water-safe features. The hostess of the party is one of my favorite people and the friendly rep she worked with has about 8 years of experience and was very well stocked when it came to samples of the product line making it easy to see the advantages and...

Pruning for a Healthy Marriage

  So I spent this morning in my gardens with a plan of just doing a quick trim on some rose bushes and then getting on to all the weeds that have invaded my flower beds. But on closer inspection the two bushes I was going to give a quick trim were actually in trouble due to the lack of care I have shown them during the early part of the season ( haste makes waste!) While they were covered with roses both blooming and spent something had eaten most of the leaves to shreds and a lack of formal pruning had left the bushes  with a tangled mass of live and dead wood crossing and gnarled and leading to a lack of air circulation under the bush which lead to some rot and...

Adult Acne, the Good, the Bad, the Unfair!

At a time in my life when I thought I would be all clear of many things one has come back to haunt me in a big way, adult onset acne.  Oh woe is me and a whole bunch of other women who lived through teenage break outs to then have  upwards of 25 years of skin that pretty much behaved only to arrive at the doorstep of 45 years to once again have acne worthy of a high school senior a day before the prom! Actually this time my acne is different. As a teen I mostly suffered from cystic acne that made a mess of my chin. In fact for most of my high school years I had Jay Lenno’s chin ( hope he did not mind!) .. large, distorted and painful! The cysts got so bad at...

How to Wear Stripes if you are a Curvy Girl

How to Wear Stripes if you are a Curvy Girl

Stripes are hot on the fashion scene this Summer so it makes sense to have at least a few stripped items in your wardrobe if you are going to feel that you are making some attempt at being stylish no matter what your size. Stripes can be problematic to say the least, the wrong size and placement can make even Twiggy look like a line backer or prison escapee. But with the right size and scale stripes can feel fresh and playful  for hot summer days and nights. I am no expert that is for sure but I do know what looks good on me and what looks like hell. This t-shirt is good. The small stripe and the deep navy feel right on target for now but the scale of the stripe...

Masturbation and Marriage

I will admit that some of my best inspiration for posts come from conversations I have with others as well as new sexy books on the market and controversial Time Magazine covers ( I still need to write about that!). Today’s post is about masturbation within marriage and the inspiration for it came from a rather awkward conversation between myself and someone who wanted to know why I would even need to write about “that thing” if my blog was about marriage since  ~wait for it~~~ “anyone who is married does not need that anymore”. At this point you can insert my face.. big eyes.. :blink: :blink: :blink:..  ~crickets chirping ~ and her...
