So What If "Great Sex" Is Not Enough?

After flying the flag fastidiously about the benefits of a great sex life, some of you may wonder if I’ve finally awakened from my slumber to smell the strong coffee. Actually, I never lost sight (or rather smell) of it and the entire story about relationships must always be told. “Great Sex”, “Greater Orgasms”, “Find Your G Spot”, “Drive Him/Her Wild In Bed” and the like,…

Glamour of Business Travel… Uh-Huh

Why is it the first thing you think of when your sweetheart says he has to travel on business is "What about me?" Why is that narcissistic yelp the first thing out of your mouth? Why, no matter how good your relationship is, do you instantly visualize abandonment?

I'm washing my dog at one of those do-it-yourself places, and in the tub next to me is a St. Bernard, whose owners are having this not-too-happy discussion. The guy is saying "But it's just for 3 weeks, honey," and Honey is… Continue

Cheat and Tell?

Recently I had quite an interesting conversation with a girlfriend of mine. She was stuck somewhat between a rock and a hard place because she was wondering if it was always necessary to confess that one had cheated. If you cheated, did you always have to tell? Is it alright to wriggle out of an affair without confessing to your partner what had been done?

Hate To Exercise

Why don't you exercise when you know perfectly well you should?  Why do you keep promising yourself you'll join the gym – but never get there?

You're huffing and puffing as you climb the stairs at work, irritated with yourself because you know you should be in better shape than this. It's getting harder to get your energy up in the morning, and you feel awfully rundown at night. You're well aware that exercising regularly would change all that, but you just can't seem to pull it… Continue

"OOOOO Baby!" A Guy's Guide to Using the Language of Love

It is a scientific fact that women are more language oriented than men. This perhaps explains why we tend to be so turned on by talk; words just have a way of getting to us.There have been so many songs and poems written by men, to women, to express their deep and abiding desire and love. From Shakespeare to Wordsworth to Robert Blake, to the sultry lyrics of popular…

Naming Our Sex Organs; What This Reveals About Us

If you’re like me, you probably grew up in an era when the genitals were imbued with a wonderful sense of mystique. When it came to body parts, an eye was always an eye and a tooth a tooth. When it came to the vagina however, it was a pocket, a pok-pok, a coochie, a pokey or some other slang term, some of  which will remain unmentionable in this forum. What these…

Guy Buying Girlfriend Clothes

Why do some guys think they have the right to tell you what to wear or how to wear it? What is it about guys buying clothes for you that feels great but weird at the same time?

I'm at the mall, and I can't help but notice a very dashing young man selecting clothes for his girlfriend to try on. "Mmm, that's not really my type," she says, of one of the outfits, "Oh, you'd look great in it. Try it on – for me," he says, handing it to her. "OK," she says, giving in. And when she comes out… Continue

Unfortunately, this is the reason for the failure of some marriages. This problem starts long before the marriage. Wives, or husbands, who feel their mouth belongs to them, and therefore have the right to say whatever they feel, and whenever they feel, are very wrong. Every husband should note this: Your body, which includes your mouth belongs also to your wife, and likewise, the body of the wife, including her mouth, belongs to the husband. History can bear witness to the fact that “Wrong…

Let Go Or Get Dragged

You cope pretty darn well with the crises and emergencies of life. Somehow you get through them, over them, and get on with life.

But then there are things that aren’t crises, yet somehow manage to irritate, annoy or aggravate you every time you bump into them. Things you don’t get over because they’re in your face time and time again.

You know, like that ex with whom you had the misfortune to birth a perfectly wonderful daughter who you have to “share” with him since the… Continue
