Sex Positions She Craves

You want to please your partner. I want to help you. (Well, not literally, but you get where this is going.) That’s why we surveyed over 1,100 women on which sex positions they wish you’d try more often. (Spoiler: Missionary came in dead last.) The poll consisted of 11 positions, and each participant was to select which three she fancied the most. As it turns out, the ladies want the same thing you do: more adventure!

Interested in what our respondents had to say? Check out the five positions that ranked the highest:

No. 1: Face-Off Position, 48 percent ranked this in their top three

How it benefits her: She’s in control of the depth, as well as the pace of the thrusts. (Bonus: You have killer access to her breasts. Utilize this.)


No. 2: G-Whiz, 32 percent ranked this in their top three

How it benefits her: When she raises her legs, it narrows her vagina—making it easier for you to target her G-Spot. 

No. 3: Upstanding Citizen, 31 percent ranked this in their top three

How it benefits her: It’s. So. Sexy. (Advice for you: Spread your thighs slightly, don’t lock your knees, and if you have a bad back—don’t attempt it. Nothing says “mood killer” like hurting yourself.)

No. 4: Flatiron, 31 percent ranked this in their top three

How it benefits her: It creates a snug fit. (Simply put: You feel larger to her in this position.)

No. 5: Stand and Deliver, 30 percent ranked this in their top three

How it benefits her: Bending at the waist tightens her vaginal walls and increases the intensity of the friction. (Want to take it up a notch? Reach around with your free hand and caress her clitoris.)

So there you have it, five woman-approved sex positions. Now go out there and see which one you and your partner like best!

PDA: How Much is Too Much?

Many a times, you and your loved one would be in a public place

just being yourselves and for no probable reason you keep getting glances from every passerby. The reason for those queer glances is most probably your public display of affection or PDA for your partner. Now, there are no set norms which apply to PDA but there are certain guidelines you should adhere to, depending on the place you are in. Below are some pointers that would help you keep within the acceptable social limits of PDA.

1. Mind Your Surroundings

The famous quote from ‘Batman Begins’ surprisingly also holds good for PDA. At busy public spaces like metro stations, restaurants and malls, it is best to keep your display of affection limited. However, it is best to steer clear of any PDA at workplaces and religious places.

2. Draw the Line

Holding hands, light cuddling and hugs pass off as acceptable public displays of affection, but make sure you are not too obtrusive while doing these things. However, long kisses, smooches, groping, and fondling are areas regarded as strictly unacceptable. Getting too intimate may not only invite frowns, but it can also make your partner uncomfortable.

3. Judge the Situation

Strolling down the park holding hands with your partner is something perfectly acceptable and rather a pleasing sight. However, doing the same on a crowded street may seem a bit distasteful. It is best to analyse the situation and try to think from the perspective of a third person.

4. Consult your Partner

It is possible that your partner may feel uncomfortable with things that don’t even qualify for PDA. Making an assumption about the comfort level of your partner is not the best of ways. It is always preferable to initiate a discussion with your partner to be clear about the situations or actions that might make her uncomfortable.

5. Alcohol

Under the influence of alcohol, it is convenient for things to spiral out of control. Alcohol lowers your inhibitions and instils a complete disregard for your surroundings. It is best not to engage in any PDA while you are drunk as things are bound to get loose and cause embarrassment to you.

Public displays of affection are not necessarily synonymous with vulgar or inappropriate. They may even help to further strengthen a relationship. PDAs can also be regarded as a mutual gesture for showing conformity of love for each other. The main thing here is to take into account that you are not making those gestures at the expense of others. If your actions make the people around you uncomfortable, it is best not to indulge in such actions on the basic principles of civility. And if you really just cannot help showing your love for your partner then you should indeed ‘get a room’.

7 ways to stand out in a crowd

Whether you want to stand out at an interview or you’re trying to get noticed by a member of the opposite sex, it’s important to know how to make a good first impression. Here are seven simple steps to make you stand out in a crowd

la_05_a

How to stand out in a crowd 1: Have good posture

Experts say that first impressions are based on 60 per cent non-verbal communication and 40 per cent verbal, which means that you’re being judged mostly before you even open your mouth – no pressure. To make your 60 per cent count, you need to have good posture. When was the last time you noticed the person who shuffled into the room looking shy and coy? Did it make you want to talk to them? If you were an employer, would you give them a job? No? Shocker. Shuffling in with slumped shoulders and your head hanging down will make you look like you don’t want to speak to anyone and doesn’t make people feel like they can approach you. Instead, walk tall with your shoulders back and your head held high.

How to stand out in a crowd 2: Walk with purpose

Along with posture comes walking with a purpose; there’s no point holding your head high if you’re going to dawdle over to the bar looking worried and lost. Walk as though you’re going somewhere specific. Even if you don’t have a clue where you’re walking to, just pretend you do. Maybe aim more towards the bar than the toilets though – you’re trying to look confident, not like you’re on a desperate mission to get to the bathroom because you have an upset stomach.  Walk in like you mean business, and people will notice you.

How to stand out in a crowd 3: Look the part

Trendsetters rarely go undetected so wear something that stands out. This isn’t to say that you should revamp your style completely; go for something you feel confident in but add a flash of colour or a quirky accessory to make yourself stand out. Look through magazines for inspiration; if you flick through the pages of a fashion magazine and see someone that stands out for their style (in a good way, of course) try to incorporate an element of their style into your own.

How to stand out in a crowd 4: Be approachable and approach people

There’s no point looking the part with posture, confidence and style if you’re going to team these positive attributes with a bad attitude and a glum face. No one likes the cocky guy who walks in like he owns the place. Instead, approach people and make sure you look approachable, make eye contact and smile. Ask people questions about themselves to show that you’re interested even if you couldn’t care less about where they work or what they’re doing at the weekend – these people will want to talk to you again in the future.

How to stand out in a crowd 5: Have a passion

When speaking to people – whether that is in a bar or in a job interview – evoke people’s interest in you by being passionate about your chosen subject. Talking about how nice the weather is can be a good conversation starter when you’re trying to break the ice, but it gets pretty bland after about 30 seconds. Instead, ask people what they’re interested in and show your passion for your hobbies too. This doesn’t mean pretending that you love rugby when you’re into ballet, but if you can show a particular passion for ballet, then go for it. Showing that you have a passion for something makes people interested in you because you’re inspiring – you have things to talk about and knowledge to share with others.

How to stand out in a crowd 6: Don’t be swayed by other people

People who really stand out are those who don’t simply smile and nod along when something is said that they don’t agree with. You shouldn’t change your opinion purposely to stand out, but if your thoughts genuinely diverge from everyone else’s, say it. Don’t force your opinions on other people because this will make you unpopular but don’t be afraid to express your views either. If you have a good reason for thinking differently, you’ll stand out for your honesty and innovative thinking. Rather than saying, for example, “no that’s not how it should be” say “ that’s an interesting way to look at it. I’ve never thought of it like that before” and then say your opinion. Having your own thoughts and being honest will make you stand out from the people who simply smile and nod along.

How to stand out in a crowd 7: Believe in yourself

Above all, believe in yourself. To stand out from a crowd, you must believe that you are someone worth being around. Once you have conquered the fear of being the centre of attention, you’ve got the key to standing out in a crowd. There is only one of you in the whole wide world, so look good, stand tall, be confident and friendly and you’re sure to stand out from the rest . As the saying goes “you never get a second chance to make a first impression” so make that first impression a good one – go you?

 

9 Reasons to Heat Up Your Sex Life

1A11A66BFC53FA9144F38415F95747

 

It’s Tuesday night and you just got home from work after dealing with your crazy boss and a 30-minute commute. You throw on sweats, and head to the kitchen to see what your guy’s cooking (he looks exhausted too). Then it’s dinner, TV and — what do you know — time to brush your teeth and get ready for bed. Not exactly foreplay, unless your idea of getting sexed up includes spitting into the same sink. But here’s the thing: Failing to get over the honey-I-have-a-headache hurdle can hurt your relationship — and your health. Here are nine surprising benefits of sex that go beyond the obvious orgasm.

1 You’ll feel richer Married people — who, let the record show, have an average of 30 percent more sex than singles — can be just as happy as they would be earning an extra $100,000 a year by having sex on a regular basis. Says who? The National Bureau of Economic Research. The way it works is the more sex you have, the happier you’ll be, and that happiness is what makes you content with what you’ve got rather than lusting after a BMW.

2 You’ll save those sick days Sex once or twice a week boosts levels of immunoglobulin A (IgA), which is what helps ward off cold and flu viruses, among others. Researchers at Wilkes University found that out of 111 participants ages 16 to 23, those who had sex once or twice a week showed a 30-percent increase in their IgA levels, giving them more protection from getting sick. Just something to think about when you take your vitamins every morning and pack that hand-sanitizer in your purse.

3 You’ll be happier This sounds a bit nasty, but semen might actually be good for you. Your guy’s mojo is loaded with nutrients like zinc, calcium, protein, and more, which your vagina absorbs during sex. In a recent study of students at the State University of New York at Albany, researchers found women who had sex sans condoms were less depressed than those who used rubbers. There might be some unfriendly variables there, but either way, there’s also proof that orgasms make both men and women feel less stressed and generally happier.

4 You’ll be more likely to conceive You passed sixth-grade health, so you know that having sex can, uh, get you pregnant. And of course, the more sex you have, the higher your chances are of seeing two pink lines. But did you also know that doing the deed won’t just up your chances of getting pregnant by sheer odds, it’ll also make your guy more fertile? A team of Australian researchers found that out of 118 men with damaged sperm, 81 percent showed a decrease in the number of “bad sperm” after having sex every day for a week. The thinking goes that regular sex gets sperm out of the body faster — and since sperm’s quality diminishes the longer it’s in the body, it’s actually in your guy’s best interest (and yours, if you’re trying to conceive) to, well, clean out his pipes.

5 You’ll sleep better When you have an orgasm, your body produces a hormone called oxytocin, making you feel warm and fuzzy all over (you know, kinda like a little love buzz). You also release endorphins, nature’s sedative, which explains why you feel so relaxed (as in, ready for a big ol’ snooze) after getting it on. The combination of these chemicals surging through your body is enough to make you crash in a major way, and this is especially true for men. So don’t be offended if your guy isn’t up for an hour of post-sex cuddling. That move you just did was about the equivalent of a Tylenol PM.

6 You’ll look younger If you’re spending hundreds of dollars on skin creams every year, you might want to rethink your strategy. Sex can actually make women appear 12 years younger than their true age, a little fact courtesy of Scotland’s Royal Edinburgh Hospital. Their study went like this: Judges looked through a one-way mirror and estimated the ages of women on the other side. It turns out, the women who were perceived as being “super-young” happened to be having sex four times a week on average. And it’s not a coincidence: Sex has been proven to boost estrogen levels, a key hormone for smooth skin and shiny hair (take that, Botox). So stop stressing out about that new sorta-kinda wrinkle developing on your forehead and hop in the sack instead.

7 You’ll have a healthier heart It’s the news guys everywhere have been waiting for: Giving blow jobs might just save women’s lives. Yes, brace yourselves, ladies, because a Dutch study actually found that women who swallowed semen during oral sex had a lower risk of preeclampsia, a condition of high blood pressure that can be caused by pregnancy. Yes, really. Also, a British study published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health showed that having sex at least twice a week could cut a man’s chances of a fatal heart attack in half compared with men who only got it on less than once a month.

8 You’ll feel more in love The oxytocin that’s released during orgasm doesn’t just boost your mood, it also makes you feel closer to your partner. The hormone, particularly for women, has a bonding effect, which tends to translate into many other areas of the relationship (ever notice how you feel all cuddly after doing it, and how much easier it is to be annoyed at him after a weeklong sex sabbatical?). And it isn’t just sex. Simple touching or flirty foreplay can also trigger an increase in your levels of oxytocin, literally creating a chemical romance and a sense of mutual attachment. So even if you’re not in the mood for full-on action, spend some time exchanging back massages or just getting cozy together on the couch.

9 You’ll lose weight Well, sorta. Thirty minutes of sex can burn about 85 calories, although a particularly, shall we say, rigorous sex session can kill up to 200 calories (so figure you just saved yourself about 20 minutes on the treadmill — or burned off a Pop-Tart). Plus, most sex positions require a certain level of flexibility — your legs aren’t going to just magically land on his shoulders — while others work your ab, thigh, or arm muscles. Even the standby missionary position can help tone those biceps as long as you’re the one on top. If you don’t hit the gym quite as much as you planned this winter (funny how that happens, isn’t it?), getting busy a few times a week can (and will) help keep you looking buff. Just, you know, try not to pull anything while you’re at it!
