6 Ways to Keep Your Relationship Spicy on Valentine’s Day and Beyond

Friday, February 14th, 2014

By Guest Blogger Laurie Gerber

Happy Valentine’s Day, Lovebirds! I’ve been with my husband for 20 years and so far neither of us has cheated. We have something really great, but if you read my blog, you’d know it wasn’t always so good. We had our troubles and issues in our marriage, same as all couples. I will tell you that it is what we chose to do about our issues, that has kept our love thriving and our marriage hot. Prepare to change your thinking!

People get frustrated with keeping love alive, partly because they’ve been conditioned by movies and common culture to believe that with the “right” person, all the romance and spark will appear “naturally.” I teach a different story. Love and romance usually come easily when we’re young or when the relationship is young. After that, it takes work. Don’t view that as an injustice or a burden, but rather an opportunity to grow up and take charge of your life.

Today we’re having THE TALK. No, no, not the talk you have with your teens about boyfriends, safe sex and monthly periods.

Well, actually, we ARE talking about our monthly period, but in a different way.

How To Get Your Marriage To SIZZLE And Not FIZZLE (VIDEO)

Friday, August 9th, 2013

Most of us are familiar with the Penny in the Jar Theory, explained on this week’s parenting segment. But I won’t spoil it for you if you haven’t heard of it.

Truth: After marriage and kids, couples can begin to take each other for granted, get bogged down by routine monotony, and can sometimes feel as if they are staring at a complete stranger, rather than their loving partner. I once read a stat that went something to the tune of: After having sex with the same person 100 times, redundancy sets in. Even for the world’s most beautiful people like Brad and Angelina, 100 times is the supposed magic number where sex gets boring with the same person. Things that make you go hmmm…

On this week’s Global TV parenting segment, I talked about sex and marriage after kids. How do you bring back the sizzle, and get rid of the fizzle? I saved the video for today, hoping to provide a little inspiration for the weekend. Below is the G rated version, although we still received a tweet on Twitter that said read: “That was a hawt segment. *fanning myself.*” Obviously I couldn’t suggest XXX porn to get your partner revved up, or demonstrate sex positions, but this should hopefully do the trick for you. ;)

I’ve always been on the unofficial search for better sex tips. In my early 20′s, my social circle consisted of really good looking beefy men who had lusty arms so sculpted, they could protect a lady from any danger. Hormones were raging all around, and booty calls between friends happened… in a no-strings-attached college kind of way.

How To Add Spice and Romance To Your Relationship With Feng Shui

Friday, May 17th, 2013

By Guest Blogger Kathryn Weber

When it comes to slipping between the sheets, the last thing you’re probably thinking about is feng shui in your bedroom. Yet it’s the feng shui of your bedroom that could just make the difference between a so-so romantic experience and an overarching deity of oohs and aaahs.

Bedroom-Feng-Shui-These-Days

Bedroom parity can solve the bedroom rarity of solid and satisfying sex for both partners. Yes it can. How can that be? Well, think about your bedroom as a symbol of your relationship. Is it broken down in the middle like the mattress and filled with laptops and tablets, similar to the way your work intrudes in on your love life?

Maybe you have a stack of books a foot tall next to the bed. What does that say about what the bedroom is for? To get your love life into a new gear, take a good look around. If your bedroom says mommy and daddy, exercise, work, reading, shopping or any other word besides rest and romance, there’s a problem.

The Morning After Pill Now Over-The-Counter: The On The Fence Debate

Wednesday, May 1st, 2013

Well my fellow parents, the FDA announced yesterday that “the morning after pill” will now be available to teenaged girls 15 and over without a prescription.

keep-calm-and-take-the-morning-after-pill-7

WOW.

Which leads me to the big ON THE FENCE questions today:  How many more STDs (possibly life threatening) will this lead to? How much more teen promiscuity will now follow? How “safe” will our teens’ sex really be now? How much abuse of this moring after pill will occur? It’s an attempt to erradicate unwanted teenage pregnancies, but is it smart?

Sexual Skin

Friday, January 18th, 2013

By Guest Blogger Tara Baboushkin

I was one of the last of my friends to have sex. Yup, I admit it, practically a whole year behind the rest of my group. Now, that’s not to say that I wasn’t sexual, I just wasn’t having any sex. Like my other friends, I had a boyfriend, I went to grad – in short, I had opportunity. But I didn’t have sex.

So what does that make me? A prude, a priss, a “good girl”? By some standards, yes. By male standards, definitely. Perhaps even by some of your standards too. By my own standards, however, I was anything but.

The truth is that I was, in fact, very sexual and very sexually curious. From a young age, the idea of sexual intimacy as an expression of emotion and love fascinated me. I was always asking my parents to “TV kiss” (in other words, smooch) in front of me to show me they were really “in love.” Like most young girls, I fantasized about kissing my fifth-grade crush and slow-dancing with the cutest boy at the Saturday night camp dance.
