Why You MUST Masturbate!

If you want to talk masturbation and vibrators…

…you can’t find a better person to interview than Dr. Bat Sheva Marcus, who wrote her dissertation on women and vibrator use while earning her Doctor of Philosophy in human sexuality from the Institute of Advanced Study of Human Sexuality. She also has a Master’s in public health from the same institution, and is a licensed social worker with a Master’s degree from Columbia University.

A founder of the Medical Center for Female Sexuality, Dr. Marcus has served as its director since it was created in 2000. The center’s compassionate and experienced staff is trained specifically in female sexual health and is committed to helping women solve their sexual health challenges.

so highly of masturbation


Best Bets for A Relaxing Bath

A warm bath is an easy, soothing and fun way to unwind after a strenuous gym session or a
tough day at work.

This quiet time will help get you back on track for a good night’s rest or whatever else is ahead! Not only should you have the right accoutrements for the perfect bath, but make sure you’re taking slow, deep breaths to stay relaxed. These six items will help.

1. Pillow Talk

It’s no fun resting your head right on the ceramic tub. Bath pillows range from small, bean-shaped foam to large rectangles filled with a waterproof polyester blend. Choose one that supports your neck and is ultra-plush, such as this curved pillow from Pretika Bath & Shower, made with memory foam! The pillow is large enough for full neck support, has a soft micro-touch fabric cover, and a remote control for a vibration function.


Win An Alluring and Comfy Lingerie Set!

Enter to win a lovely nightgown and matching robe from Soulevant Lingerie, valued
over $150!

If you speak French, you know that “soulevant” means “lifting up.” That’s the secret to Soulevant Lingerie—its nightgowns, or “chemises,” as they call them, feature built-in, wire-free bras to keep you stylish, supported, and comfortable.

The pieces are machine washable, and can even double-up as sundresses or cover-ups in warm weather.

“Beauty and style shouldn’t be sacrificed when I wear
my nightgown.

“Large-busted women deserve to be beautiful without the hassle of an underwire,” says Soulevant founder Linda Wallace-Blau. “The clothing market wasn’t meeting my needs, or the needs of many other women with the same issues. So I decided to start my own clothing line to serve women who refuse to sacrifice comfort or style.”

One lucky FOF will win this mid-length set, made of a soft polyester/spandex blend in a vibrant dark purple and fuchsia print.


Win The Revel Body SOL Sonic Vibrator!

This beautifully designed device, called the Revel Body SOL, is great for intimate body massage and superior stimulation to the most sensitive places on the body.

Featuring a magnetically centered moving part, powered up by a patented Revel Body TrueSonic technology, the unit delivers a wide range of adjustable vibration “never before seen in sexual wellness products,” according to the company. Also, it’s the only vibrator that operates at the power of Om, the energy that connects and joins all things together. Om vibration promotes sexual awakening, reduces stress and tension and renews mind, body and spirit.

The tube-shaped magnetic center can easily be popped out when you want to change one of the three tips, each shaped differently to create a unique sensation. The technology also reportedly reduces vibration to the hand by 80 percent, and the ergonomic shape makes the Revel Body SOL feel comfortable and easy to use. A small stand charges the unit’s lithium-powered battery and holds the device when it’s resting.

Made of high-quality, body-safe materials, the Revel Body SOL is completely waterproof and generates vibration and suction when the concave side is used underwater and held again the body. It is a sensation unlike any other. 1 FOF will win.


What Do Matt Damon And Geri Brin Have In Common?

“I should have done it years ago. It’s amazing I didn’t even want cigarettes anymore.”

Matt Damon [on his experience with hypnosis]

Like Matt, I stopped smoking after being hypnotized, about 30 years ago. I was smoking over two packs a day at that point. The private session lasted about 90 minutes and cost me $250, a hefty sum considering it was 1984. The hypnotist gave me a set of tapes and instructed me to listen to them every night for a few weeks. If they worked as they were supposed to, I’d be able to hypnotize myself, he said. They worked. Even today, I can remember going into a hypnotic state. I kid you not!

I haven’t even held a cigarette between my fingers since that afternoon.

Perhaps I would have stopped without hypnosis. Who knows and who cares? I don’t smoke and that’s what counts.

So I jumped at the chance to interview Colin Christopher, a 39-year-old certified clinical hypnotherapist from Canada, who started using hypnosis and hypnotherapy 15 years ago to help couples reconnect and reignite their waning flames.

Maintaining that sexless relationships are more common than most couples will admit, Colin says that as long as medical issues aren’t to blame, couples can employ many natural techniques to heat things up again. Colin also wrote Success Through Manipulation, which explains what manipulates us in our environment. “You can read each chapter in five to 10 minutes,” he says.

Enjoy my enlightening conversation with Colin.

Although macho men might disagree, a woman’s sex appeal, at any age, has a lot more to do with her character, confidence and charisma than her boobs, gams and flawless face.

“It would put anybody in the mood.”

FOF gave 12 lucky ladies the chance to win one of Sinclair Institute’s inspiring and informative sex education videos. All the winners were interviewed, before and after watching the videos of their choice, about their sex lives.

Enjoy our “after” interview, below, with FOF Renee and her husband, John. We originally learned that they are an adventurous, loving couple but sometimes falls into a sexual rut.

“We can go three to four months without having sex at all,” Renee explained (and complained). Find out what they got out of the video they watched and why Renee says it “wasn’t what I expected.”

Which video did you watch?
Renee: Great Sex for a Lifetime.

Where did you watch it?
Renee: In our bedroom, in the evening.

Did you do anything special to prepare?
Renee: Yes, we made sure the kids weren’t home and that we were relaxed and in the mood.

Did you have any expectations?
John: I don’t think so. I think we were just curious to see if there was anything new that we might pick up.
Renee: I had no idea what to expect.

What was your first impression?
Renee: It wasn’t what I thought it was going to be. I thought the video would have more diagrams and voiceovers. Like, someone telling you what to do. But it was real people– couples. The instruction was by example. You watched what they said and did. I was surprised by how open they were.
John: I thought it would be more like Cinemax, where they don’t show any of the real stuff.
Renee: Yeah, like when they show you a position and then pan to the faces or something.
John: But this wasn’t like that—it really showed everything!
Renee: Everything!
John: You name it, they show it.

Did you like that it was explicit?
John: I thought it was very good. It’s nice that there’s something out there to give us real ideas for new things we can do.

What did you think of the real people?
Renee: I found them relatable. When you watch them, you don’t feel like you’re weird. They all have their own little quirks. They gave you ideas. And they also told us to communicate, which I liked.
John: You could tell that it wasn’t staged at all–just real people relating their experiences.

Was there anything you particularly related to?
John: To tell you the truth, we didn’t see anything we haven’t tried before. I mean, we’ve been together a long time and we’re pretty adventurous. But it reminded us of things that we’d put out of rotation.
Renee: Yes, little clues and reminders.
John: It put things back on the playlist.

Would you recommend this video to another FOF? Why or why not?
John: For sure!
Renee: Yes. I thought that there were a lot of good ideas there. And by using real people it gives you permission. If you’re not normally adventurous you might look at them and say, ‘It’s okay. These are good things to do.’ It would put anybody in the mood.

You mentioned that you have periods when you’re in a “sexual rut.” Is this something you’d use to help you out of it?
John: Yes.
Renee: Everyone looked like they were having a great time. It makes you think, ‘that looks like fun– let’s try that.’

Wake up your libido through scent!

FOFtestburst10To enter to win Good Clean Love’s Love Oil Set, comment below by answering the question: Why do you want to try love oil? 

Our sense of smell is primary in attraction. Love oil is a sensuous commodity. As you rub it on your loved one’s skin, the scent merges with your touch. Touch may be a mysterious language but we all desire to “speak” it. Combining scented oil with the perfectness of naked skin exudes erotica.

My husband, Franc, coined the term “smoking me/you” to describe the practice of inhaling your lover’s scent. Try this: Apply a generous amount of love oil to his lips and face, up to his nose. Move in as if you’re about to kiss, so you can feel his breath on your face, then inhale. Close your eyes and focus all your attention on the scent. Notice how it penetrates beyond your conscious thoughts. Take five breaths. Brush your lips on the smooth soft glide of his chin and cheek. With your eyes closed, search for his lips. See if you can feel the moment when your limbic brain begins to fire a burst of neuron activity. See if you can physically notice the moment when your sexual drive is triggered.

Good Clean Love oil scents are exotic and erotic combinations from across the globe. Our formulations use many of the oldest recorded aphrodisiac oils that have been revered for centuries. Not surprisingly many of these exquisite scents has been more valuable than gold for their arousing properties. Each oil combines the sensuous history of faraway lands and exotic aromas, transporting your intimate experience.

It is hard to smoke your lover for very long, before you are compelled to kiss. Love oil turns an ordinary kiss into an extraordinary exchange. Scent enlarges your sensory experience at least ten fold. Lips, tongue, and breath all are magnified within the shadow of aroma. Paying attention to this most precious and private language of intimacy nourishes your relationship in ways that no speaking conversation can. Let the kiss envelop your body. Be generous with love oil all over your lover’s body. Feel the weight of your hand as it glides over curves. Add pressure to the length of a leg. Try only fingertips down the torso. All the time, keep your mind focused on scent. How does your lover’s body smell on the chest, belly, and genitals? Love oil will continue to change all over the body. You will be inhaling different combinations of scent, like notes of music.

Love oil smells differently on everyone who wears it and creates a unique scent bridge between you and your partner. Knowing your relationship through scent is a unique way to reconsider all that you thought you knew and acknowledge all that remains mysterious about the one you love.
