Excess Vaginal Wetness – What are Your Options

Vaginal Wetness during Sex: YOU MAY BE WETTER THAN NECESSARY!

Most of us assume that sex is best when wet, but are you feeling as much as you could be from intercourse? Just like a car engine, there is an upper and lower range that is required for maximum performance.

Too much natural lubrication (wetness) during sex reduces pleasure for both partners. Females lose greater stimulation along the vaginal walls. Men lose out on the corresponding ‘tight’ sensation that they love. We all have an optimum level of friction that is required to enable heightened pleasure for both partners, thus leading to easier climax. This level of stimulation can most easily be obtained by experimenting with your wetness level. Sex could be much more satisfying than what you think it already is.

A woman’s wetness level increases naturally as arousal increases. But for some ladies, even the slightest turn-on is enough to produce an extravagant amount of lubrication. If excess wetness is a problem for you, OR if you wish to simply experiment with different levels of wetness, seeking the most pleasurable ‘tight’ sensation for your man, what can you do?

First, realize that there is more involved in sex than just the intercourse part of it. More women achieve orgasms by clitoral stimulation than by intercourse. However, intercourse is an intimate act & should be satisfying when possible. If it is not enjoyable, then a couple will more than likely become romantically distant. This is the beginning of marriage deterioration.

Secondly, you should see your doctor to be sure there is no infection, abnormalities, or other problem causing your excess wetness, especially if it is something new. Don’t take chances!

Medical Options:

The most radical solution to excess wetness is surgery. This should be your last resort, & is rarely necessary. Other medical procedures include freezing or lasering the cervix to reduce secretions, electrical stimulation, & treatment with magnetic fields. These treatments can variously be painful, costly, & time consuming. There is no guarantee of success or that the problem will not return.

Non-Medical Options:

There are numerous options, but few realistic ones. Here are some common things couples try (including some “old wives tales”) & comments about their effectiveness.

1) Anything that dries up the mouth. In general, if it dries the mouth, then it will also affect the vagina somewhat. Examples would be decongestants, antihistamines, cold formulas, certain antidepressants, alcohol, cigarettes, & marijuana. While these may work to some degree, wetness & corresponding tightness levels are not controllable, not to mention that a dry mouth is not as tasty during kissing & is more conductive to bad breath due to lack of saliva.

2) Try an Alum Douche. We’ve heard of this, but don’t know any doctor recommending it. Alum acts to contract walls of vagina, but can be irritating & cause yeast infections. There’s no way to judge how long it will last nor a way to control the extent of tightening

3) Use a ribbed condom or penis sleeve. Excess wetness remains a problem with or without a condom. Penis sleeves help the man feel more, but tends to numb the woman’s vagina after a few minutes, making her uncomfortable.

4) Douche with plain water. This has some impact by reducing the amount of natural lubrication, but the effect tends to vanish as the woman’s arousal increases, resulting in secretion of even more lubrication.

5) Insert a sponge or cloth. One of the more embarrassing techniques as it must be done intermittently. Couples find this a big turn off. The technique though, is to wrap a thin sheet/towel around a couple of fingers. Insert the fingers to soak up vaginal wetness. Proceed with intercourse. Repeat as necessary. While this method does work, re-entry of vagina is difficult & painful because this method absorbs ALL the lubrication. Within a few minutes however, as arousal increases again, there will once again be too much wetness. With this method, there is no way of controlling the desired level of wetness & tightness.

6) Use of a fan blowing on the genital area. Not a practical solution, as it primarily results in making the couple cold, while having little impact on internal vaginal secretions.

7) Use of birth control pills. An old wives tale without any validity.

8) Repositioning her body. Certain positions, such as closing of the legs, act to tighten the vagina, but unless the man has a longer than average penis, he will find it far less satisfying due to shallower penetration.

9) Insert an ice cube into the vagina to cause muscle contraction. Another old wives tale, not to mention the obvious discomfort.

10) Vaginal Cones. Very similar in concept to kegal exercises. The idea here is to exercise the vaginal muscles by holding an object inside the vagina by flexing the interior muscles. Increasingly heavier weights can be placed inside. The theory is sound, but females have a difficult time staying on this type of program long enough to be of benefit, not to mention that like any muscle, if it is not continually worked, it will lose its strength. The other disadvantage is that to be of benefit during intercourse, the female must consciously flex her interior muscles, thus taking away from her ability to relax & enjoy the act of intercourse itself.

11) Creams. There are a couple of these on the internet now being marketed under many different names. If you already suffer from excess wetness, adding a cream to the existing problem is not going to help. Manufacturers say the creams have a tightening effect on the vagina within 15-30 minutes, but evidence shows that any NOTICEABLE tightening effects is minimal to none. Application of the cream to the interior walls of the vagina is difficult, embarrassing & must be properly timed to correspond with intercourse. Some of the creams contain benzocaine, alum or Vaseline, none of which are recommended for being inserted into the vagina. To check out more on these creams, look on the internet under ‘vaginal tightening.’

12) AbsorbShun natural powder. Is an ‘all-natural’ powder that either the man or woman can apply to the man’s penis. It is simple & quick to use, & has a noticeable moisture absorbing effect within 1-2 minutes. The more powder used, the more absorption, thus allowing the couple to find (and control) their most preferred moisture & tightness level. For more information on this product, go to

Whatever option you choose, you should look for a solution that is satisfactory for both partners. Finding the right level of lubrication can lead to greater sexual pleasure, more frequent sex, & a closer relationship between partners.

Building a "Superman" Core With One Exercise

Building a “Superman” core with one exercise

I’m not big on having a six pack; I focus on the function and strength of my body as a whole. Spending half of a workout to build a six pack is a waste of time considering abs are made in the kitchen.

Today’s television, media, magazines and all other forms of advertisement points to having abs. We live in a vanity type country; problem is we are fatter and sicker than ever before.

The type of bodily strength I’m talking about is strength built though out the body used for all types of activities. People interested in real physical fitness and strength is more interested in building fitness and strength that you can use in all situations.

You can do a hundred different ab exercises and still never have a really strong core; most ab training is weak and ineffective. Of course you will always have someone give you some theory on the right way to build strength in the abs, the only problem is; like I said before, if you follow everyone else you will get the same weak results.

I also tell people over and over I want men and women that will work harder and sweat more than the average person so the results they get will be far better and faster than the average.

I offend a lot of people because of my brash ways and the way I train and because it goes against what the experts who learn mostly from books and not from actually doing the exercise tells them.

To build a “Superman core” you have to do exercises that will really attack the core and I know of about five exercises that are extremely effective. The only challenge is most will struggle with being able to only do a few and some won’t even be able to do one.

As far as progression, I have never used a progression method for anything. I attacked the exercise and worked at it until I could do it.

One of the greatest and toughest core strength builders in the “Superman Pushup”

(Lay on the floor on your stomach arms extended over your head now raise your body off the floor a few inches)

Even though you are only raising your body a few inches the strength in your abs and lower back will be tested. Most people won’t be able to do one, but once you get one and your body knows the movement they will get easier.

The most I have ever done is 100 in fewer than six minutes. But I can tell you a couple of these will build strength in the core that will be legendary. Try one of these and see where you are. You don’t need many for amazing results.

Get Rid Of A Cold Sore

Getting a cold sore can be a most unpleasant experience. And if you are one of the over 60 million people who develop a cold sore each and every year, you already know that. Why do people get cold sore, and what can be done when a cold sore appears? Here is a quick cold sore Q & A to give you some answers to these questions and many others.

What Causes A Cold Sore?

There are many reasons why you can get a cold sore. One of the largest ones is due to stress. If you are going through a very stressful time in your life, your chances of getting a cold sore are greatly increased. Why? Because your immunity is low due to the stress. Being out in to much sunlight can be a big cause. Other triggers include illness, fevers, and believe it or not, even eating too much chocolate can cause a cold sore to break out.

Is A Cold Sore Contagious?

Cold sores are extremely contagious. You should avoid kissing anyone when you have a cold sore. You will also want to avoid sharing glasses, utensils, toothbrushes, and towels.

How Long Do Cold Sores Last?

While there is no set length of time, cold sores can last up to 2 weeks. If you can start treating it very early in the beginning you may be able to reduce the length of time significantly. In many cases it can be only 3-5 days in duration. The key is treating it as soon as you notice something is not right and you start noticing some discomfort.

What Is The Difference Between A Canker Sore And A Cold Sore?

A canker sore appears on the inside of your mouth or gums and is caused by bacteria. A cold sore is caused by a virus and will most likely always appear on the outside of your mouth. There are rare times when a cold sore will form on the roof of your mouth.

Is There Anything That Will Get Rid Of A Cold Sore?

The Energetics Of A Healthy Marriage Relationship

Most of what we know about our relationships we've learned from TV, movies or even romance novels. For many women, the idea they will meet their Prince Charming and live happily ever after is something they are brought up believing is true. As a society, we are lead to believe that one day we will meet the man or woman of our dreams, fall in love, get married, have children and live together forever in an idealist world only found in fairy tails. And for a small number of couple this is the case. For the vast majority of us, once the honeymoon is over, what was once thought to be fun, easy and carefree turns into being work, an aspect of a relationship no one really ever considers. Thus instead of addressing the changes that are taking place in our relationship space, where we need to nurture ourselves and our relationship, we instead find ways of diminishing or destroying it.

In a marriage, or any kind of relationship, whether personal or professional, agreements, both spoken and unspoken, are created. For example, at work, we agree to work hard, show up on time and to follow the directives established by the company. In our marriage, we agree to be loving, supportive and faithful. In turn, if someone breaks or violates any of the agreements, we may try to convince ourselves that their bad behavior was ok, but in the end the hurt we experience simply accumulates and over time, we come to the conclusion that enough is enough. Instead of discovering how we can win back our mate's love an approval, we often times go to our own corner, lick our wounded pride and project an attitude of "I can do it without him" or "I do not care".

There is a song sang by Brooks & Dunn called "Husbands & Wives". If you are not familiar with the song, it goes like this:

Two broken hearts lonely looking homes

Where nobody lives

Two people each having having so much pride inside

Neither side forgives

The angry words spoken in haste

Such a waste of two lives

It's my belief pride is the chief cause in the decline

Of the number of husbands and wives.

We are taught that pride is a good thing. We are proud of our country, our football teams, our children and our accomplishes. This is the good aspect of pride. It helps us to identify who we are, what we value and helps us create a balanced sense of self. For many of us, however, pride or should I say ego is also mixed with our need to compare ourselves with others. Am I richer, smarter or even better looking than the people around me? Now granted, there are some that are convinced of their superior over others, but it is not the overt sense of pride we are talking about here, but instead the kind that works to protect us from ourselves and our self-doubt.

In a relationship, pride and ego are the enemy of love. Pride, ego and self-esteem are all important aspects of ourselves … yet too much pride can be a bad thing, especially if it means that my needs, my honor, my values ​​come first. This is especially true when we insist that we are right and are unyielding, regardless of the cost to ourselves and others. In the end, no one gets what they want, and neither party is happy.

Let's look at a relationship from another perspective – from an energetic perspective. Relationships are about creating a dynamic of give and take or as how many people have heard it described, it should be 50-50. Both parties have to be willing to commit their time and energy into making a relationship work. At first this is easy. When we meet and fall in love, everything is new. It is easy for us to put a great deal of ourselves into the relationship. In addition to wanting to spend time with our new love, we will find ourselves thinking about him or her through the day and look forward to the time we will spend together.

This is a normal part of the process. As we get to know our significant other, we enjoy the process of opening and deepening the feelings of mental and emotional closeness. We can see and feel ourselves getting closer to our partner and this is one of the best parts about falling in love.

This state of drawing closer, over time, begins to shift. It changes from big easily acknowledged steps closer to smaller, less noticeable ones. To many, this slowdown feels like the forward movement within the relationship has stopped or even as if they are growing apart from their partner. And while they may still love their spouse, they can find themselves feeling as if they are "falling out of love".

So what has happened. Well first off, the relationship is not new anymore. We are no longer easily allured by the new learning's, the new feelings we experienced when the relationship first started which allowed us to effortlessly pour our energy into the relationship. What happens for most of us, this drive fades away and instead of devoting our attention to our relationship, other things start to claim our attention, our time and our energy, which in the end takes away from the energy dynamics we have with our partner . What we find is instead of it being easy, we now have to make a conscious choice to contribute to the relationship – and this is often where a relationship will fail.

In a healthy relationship our partners need two things from us – our time and our attention. Of the two, our attention is more important. Without paying attention to their wants, needs and desires, we are inadvertently saying to them that they are low on the totem pole. And so even thought we might be spending time with them, this act does not let them know that they are valued in our eyes.

According to an article I read online. It stated that: "Giving time without attention is sort of like leaving a seventeen cent tip at a restaurant … it lets the other person know that you did not forget, you just did not think they were worth more. Insulting, regardless done consciously, as with the tip, or subconsciously, as with spending time with your significant other without giving them your full attention. "

How do we give our partner attention? We talk to them, we buy them a nice gift, we make them something, we do something with them. Bottom line, we show them through our thoughts and deeds that we are thinking about them, considering them and we have their welfare in mind.

While not fully on point, let me give you an example. Many years ago I had what I considered a very close friend. As custom, we exchanged gifts for Christmas. That year our relationship was very strained. He was spending a lot of his time and energy making hand made crystal rune sets for everyone he knew – well that is except for me. It was my hope I would have given a very very special set of runes for Christmas – especially because of the close relationship we had. Instead, however, heave me a silver and turquoise bead bracelet with matching earrings. Now do not get wrong, it was nice …. but to anyone, and I mean anyone who knew me, they could read see that it was something I would never ever wear.

This experience left me feeling devalued, that he was not thinking about me at all. Through his actions or lack of consideration it really hurt our long standing friendship. And I'm sharing this, because he was just a close friend. Just think about how much more devastating something like this can be when it happens in your relationship with your spouse.

Our mental involvement in our relationships is critical. If we do not show our mate that we were thinking about them specifically, it loses some if not all of its value in their eyes.

Thankfully, we can all fall in love again. A successful relationship requires that we place our partner ahead of our wishes and needs, our likes and dislikes. By doing so, we will find that our partner will respond (that is without the relationship is too damaged) in turn. This happens when we wake up one day and realize that our partner has fallen from our attention for too long, when we recognize that we need our spouse in our lives or that we want to share our lives with them.

As we begin to put our attention back into our relationship, we can again close the gap that has opened between us and our spouse. This will create feelings of falling in love and help to rekindle the feelings of love that were once shared. It opens the flow of energy from one person to the other and helps to create a state of love and joy within the marriage.

This flow of energy supports us as we let go of the ravages and walls that our ego and pride have constructed. As our heart melts, we can again begin to feel the love that was already and always there. When we feel loved, we feel safe and secure enough to open our hearts and minds to another. It gives us the opportunity to express our essence and share feelings of peace, serenity, happiness, compassion and patience with them. It is then that we can begin to celebrate our union and oneness with another and truly go riding into the sunset and live happily ever after.

Here Is How You Can Be a Healthy Gamer

Gaming once took the world by storm, and has continued to remain a constant source of attraction, and even obsession, for many people. While everything is good in moderation, how do you satisfy your craving for continuous gaming, and still remain healthy? Keep reading to find out how.

• Know how to put first things first – Gaming only become unhealthy when it starts to creep into and disrupt other areas of your life. No matter how hardcore your gaming addiction is, it can still remain a healthy passion instead of becoming an unhealthy obsession, as long as you remain clear about your priorities. Certain things like family and friends, a full time job, and health, should never be compromised upon.

• Take care of your body – You can remain a healthy gamer so long as you do not let your passion throw you off schedule. Gaming late into the night, or all through until sunrise, may be acceptable every once in a while. However, when that becomes the norm, and you begin you overlook your healthy habits in order to continue gaming, then that spells trouble.

• Be an active gamer – This is a very important technique. Gaming on your consoles for hours on end can cause you to slip into the trap of leading a sedentary lifestyle. While it is a good thing that your brain is kept active by the gaming, it is essential to keep yourself physically active as well. This can be achieved by taking short breaks at regular intervals, and using these breaks to take a walk, or to do a couple of exercises.

• Stand tall – While most games that are played on the computer require the gamer to be seated, it would be fun to try gaming with consoles so that you can stand when you play. This is an exercise by itself. Also, you can shuffle your feet this way and that to remain physically active when you are seriously gaming.

• Drink to the game – Of course, we do not mean alcohol! It would be a healthy practice to take care of your body’s fluid requirements, by drinking water at regular intervals when you game. Fresh juices or other healthy drinks are also a good choice. This, instead of the common junk of chips and fast food that we normally opt for, will kickstart you on your journey to be a healthy gamer. It is one of the important things to remember.

Erectile Dysfunction and Nutrition – The Top 7 Fruits For Healthy Erections

Did you know that fruit can play a significant role in sexual health? If you are one of the millions of men around the world suffering from Erectile Dysfunction, you might be wondering how nutrition may affect your erections. The truth is that nutrition plays a significant role in sexual health and erectile dysfunction. And any good diet should contain an abundance of fruit. Fruit is an essential source of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, and it is often a good source of fibre. Below are the top 7 fruits for optimum sexual health.

1. Bananas. Ripe bananas are a major source of the amino acid tyrosine, and as they mature and get sweeter, their tyrosine component becomes more potent. Tyrosine regulates and stimulates dopamine levels. Bananas are also one of the best sources of potassium, an essential mineral for maintaining normal blood pressure and heart function.

2. Apples. Apples are loaded with antioxidants, which help protect the cardiovascular system from oxygen-related damage. One of these antioxidants, quercitin, has also been shown to trigger dopamine production in the brain. Apples also reduce artery-clogging cholesterol.

3. Strawberries. Strawberries are an excellent source of vitamin C. In fact they have more vitamin C than citrus fruit. Strawberry is also a good source of folate, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B6, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin E, vitamin A and vitamin K. They are also en excellent source of potassium and magnesium. Strawberry are an excellent source of anti-oxidants, and are also packed with flavonoids, which keep bad cholesterol from damaging artery walls.

4. Watermelon. Research has shown that this fruit may have similar effects on blood vessels to Viagra. The reason is that watermelon is unusually high in an amino acid known as citrulline, a phytonutrient that helps to relax and open up blood vessels, promoting the flow of blood to the penis. Our bodies use citrulline to make another amino acid, arginine, which is a precursor for nitric oxide, and the nitric oxide assists in blood vessel dilation.

5. Pomegranates. These fruits are rich in antioxidants that can keep bad LDL cholesterol from oxidizing. In addition, pomegranate juice, like aspirin, can help keep blood platelets from clumping together to form unwanted clots. Research has shown that long-term consumption of pomegranate juice may help combat erectile dysfunction.

6. Papaya. Papayas are rich sources of antioxidant nutrients such as carotenes, vitamin C and flavonoids; the B vitamins, folate and pantothenic acid; and the minerals, potassium and magnesium; and fiber. Together, these nutrients promote the health of the cardiovascular system. Papayas are also an excellent source of vitamin C as well as a good source of vitamin E and vitamin A, three very powerful antioxidants. These nutrients help prevent the oxidation of cholesterol. Only when cholesterol becomes oxidized is it able to stick to and build up in blood vessel walls. Papayas are also a good source of fiber, which has been shown to lower high cholesterol levels.

7. Avocados. Avocados have long been considered an aphrodisiac. The name itself comes from the Aztec word ahuacatl, meaning “testicle tree.” Avocados contain oleic acid, a monounsaturated fat that may help to lower cholesterol. Studies have shown that a diet high in avocados can lead to significant decreases in total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol, along with an increase in health promoting HDL cholesterol. Avocados are a good source of potassium, a mineral that helps regulate blood pressure, and guards against circulatory diseases such as high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke. Avocados also contain very high levels of folic acid, which assists in metabolising proteins, thus providing you more energy.

When Should Dirty Talking Text Messages Be Sent?

So you just met a girl while at a bar, concert, or some other public place. The exchange between you two carried on for a while, with the culmination of phone numbers being exchanged. Now you have her number so you can call, setup a date, and go out again. But you have this desire to see how she reacts to dirty talking text messages. Is this too soon? It all depends on the girl and on how that first encounter played out.

Typically it’s better to save the dirty talk text messages for after at least one date. The confident (maybe too much so) among us can attest to certain boundaries being broken if we jump into steamy texts before we really know a girl. For those who have a budding relationship with a girl, the art of ‘sextexting’ can be something worth exploring. The gutsy men may try a dirty text early on, but it works much better if the woman instigates the early exchanges.

Later in a relationship, after a few dates, dirty talking text messages can actually help to lay the groundwork for a healthy sexual relationship. Here’s a revelation for those who may be apprehensive about the practice: sexual partners tend to talk about sex. If you don’t want to have sex with a girl, then don’t send dirty texts to her. It’s simple, right?

Before a first date would be too soon to send steamy texts, but after a few dates would be ideal. The real determining factor should be the girl’s interest in the guy or vice-versa. If she hasn’t let the guy kiss her, then it’s likely not a good match. She needs to have some sort of chemistry showing on the first couple of dates. If the message in person says stay away, then a dirty text will likely be the logjam in the river of love. But if all the cues are there that she wants to take the relationship further, then sending the dirty texts may just push the two love canoes into the bubbling, rushing river of love.

A buddy of mine used to get girls numbers by begging, borrowing, or stealing. He didn’t care. His only agenda was to send sexual messages to the girls until they blocked him or asked him over. The curiosity these girls showed told me one thing in particular. Women do like dirty texts. In fact, many of them like them a lot, especially if the guy uses his brain and entices her with compliments, his own thoughts, and a bit of imagination. Get some history with the girl, then let the dirty talking text messages be the guide to romantic evenings together.
