In a previous post we discussed Women and Cheating, now let’s address the men. So, why do men cheat? Well the answer to this question varies. Cheating can be as a result of neglect or stress in the relationship; whereas his needs aren’t being satisfied. In many cases, men cheat to escape or find relief from an unhappy relationship, but often times it is just for … Continue reading Men And Cheating

Ladies and gentlemen, spilling your dirty laundry in public can be very detrimental to your reputation. I received a first hand view of that just recently. By the way, who says taking public transportation isn’t interesting? This is what went down: I was waiting impatiently at the bus stop, being that my bus was unsurprisingly ten minutes late, and ended up being an unwilling witness … Continue reading It’s The Plumber. I’m Here To Fix Your Pipe!
Sex is a connector of sorts especially in relationships. After all those late nights cuddling and many a day spent walking in the park, hormones start crisscrossing like busy pedestrians on Times Square. The pace is much faster, and progressively so when the two of you are alone.
Apparently kissing is not just kissing. There is meaning behind a kiss and a sexual one at that. Recent research has shown that a man that kisses more, touches more, cuddles more, basically is all up in your anatomy is a good sexual catch. The royal wedding is over, but the psychoanalysis of it has just began. Kate is being hailed as having made 29 a … Continue reading Kissing
What do you think about someone who has slept with more than 100 people? Well, such bed hoppers might be referred to as “porn stars” because those are the ones having that many sexual encounters, only difference is they get paid for it. I don’t know how our readers feel about this topic or if they relate to it in any way, but I find having sex so many times with DIFFERENT partners preposterous. Why would you treat your temple in such a way? It’s either you’re a harlot, have some serious psychological issues, or like I’ve stated earlier, a porn star getting paid to be dangerously promiscuous. Continue reading “100 and counting”
My girl, Keri Hilson is in the video, looking hella fly. Although, imma need her to come back to her senses! Licking down door hinges is so not pretty. But enough of Ms. Keri, back to Lloyd and his song.
Let’s face it, times are tough. When the tough gets rough, the tough get going.

Making a relationship last takes a lot of work, and sometimes a little added spice to keep the flame burning high. Doing the same things daily can lead to boredom, and often leaves couples wondering in different (new) directions. Of course it’s not all about sex, but that is an important part of the communication between the two, and sometimes needs a little improvement to keep it fresh and spontaneous.
Spicing up a relationship doesn’t necessarily mean trying new food, however there are some natural aphrodisiacs that can up the level in the relationship. For example, serotonin and phenethylamine are two power stimulants inside chocolate. Both these stimulants are called the “happiness harmone”, because they are contributors to feelings of well-being (emotional/physical satisfaction).
A ‘bedroom buddy’ is someone you meet up with for the sole purpose of having sex with them. There are no strings attached; no emotions, or any sentimental stuff, just pure pleasure. In other words, a ‘sex buddy’.
In my opinion, having a bedroom buddy is something most men tend to lean towards. Women on the other hand can make it complicated and bring emotions into such a situation, and it usually doesn’t end well. I wonder, does having a bedroom buddy mean protecting yourself from getting hurt, by locking your feelings away and disallowing yourself from falling in love?
Kai and I were discussing the issue of shacking up before getting married. We tackled this issue from different perspectives, and weighed our answers based on the analysis of shacking options.
Shacking up before getting married gives you the opportunity to know the person before committing to life imprisonment. Ever heard the saying, ‘You don’t know a person until you live with them’. When you are in a shackless relationship, you are pretty much oblivious to the others daily routine. But, in a shacked up situation you become aware of what the other does at a more acute level. The little things that you found ‘cute’ no longer seem the same. They slowly start to become annoying with a capital ‘A’.
Is sex really important in relationships, as in to make the relationship last? The truth is, it is an important aspect, but if it becomes the most important thing then the relationship won’t go too far. There are other things to building a lasting relationship and sex cannot be the only foundation.
The most important thing to build a relationship on is love and communication. Love is not the same as sex and will never be the same; ‘Making love’ with someone is not the same as having ‘sex’. If it’s just about sex then it becomes a physical thing with no meaning.
A question that has always been on my mind for years: why do artists sexify themselves in order to sell music? Females show a lot of skin in barely there outfits, and perform provocative dance moves, while the males sing about sex, sex, and more sex.
Is that what a musician have to do in order to become a “superstar” so to speak? Is that why artists like Vivian Green, Heather Headley and Jazmine Sullivan are underrated, because they are more ‘conservative’?
