Tips to Fabulous Sexual Health

1.     Use a condom. Condoms hugely reduce the risk of all STIs and STDs as well as guarding against unwanted pregnancy. They come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, textures and materials. Using the right condom is very important as it reduces the chance of it splitting.

2.     Visit your GP. If you have any changes down there, when it comes to your sexual heath it’s always better to be safe than sorry.

3.     Get checked regularly. If you don’t have a permanent partner making sure nothing nasty is lurking in your nether region is so important. You need to protect yourself and anyone else you might sleep with. If you’re with one person and have been for a long time a check up every now and then is still needed, especially if it’s someone relatively new that you’re seeing.

4.     Exercise regularly. Its thought that people who undertake regular exercise generally sexually healthier than those who don’t.

5.     Indulge in some solo sex. Masturbation is important for many reasons, it allows you to get to know your own body so should any changes occur you’ll be better placed to spot them. Those who orgasm regularly also are at a lower risk of stress related illnesses as well as headaches and for women improves bladder control.

6.     Eat right. Your diet affects absolutely everything including your libido. A healthy diet means a healthy sexy life.

7.     Quit smoking. Nothing kills the mood like the lingering smell of smoke. It also has a horrible effect the taste of a guys semen. So does alcohol, drugs and junk food!

Funky Tasting Spunk!

Yesterday I was having a catch up with one of my girlfriends, conversation quickly de-escalated from mortgages and the walking dead to sex and all things debauched. I'm happily married and must admit I do, on the odd occasion live vicariously through my single friends. She was telling me, we'll call her Joan for reasons of personal privacy, that she'd just had to end things rather abruptly with a very hot, interesting and funny guy for a very gross reason. "His cum tasted like toxic waste!" She told me. It was then concluded that it just wasn't worth dating someone who made her want to vomit each and every time she went down on him. 

At this point I'm pretty shocked, taking into account that foul tasting semen is something that can be improved upon and changed it seemed like a pretty petty reason to end things with what would otherwise be a pretty perfect man. I immediately expressed my thoughts and she counteracted this with, "well you can't change it can you. It's never been nice and to quote Sex and the City, he has some funky tasting spunk!" I had to break the news that just like most things involving your body, you can change it with diet. 

If you're carrying a little extra padding, alter your food intake and watch the pounds drop off, you're suffering from bad skin, matters can be helped with a change of diet. It's exactly the same for semen. Many men will never even have thought about the fact that what they put into their mouths directly affects the taste of their semen, but it does. The main culprits for toxic tasting cum are junk food, cigarettes and alcohol. All of which will leave your lady gagging and not eager to go back for more! Other no no's include cheese, asparagus, fish, garlic and... Sorry for this gym fanatics but too much protein. Semen is already extremely protein rich, so adding more just means it tastes a bit... iffy!

But, fear not, there's plenty you can eat that won't have a negative effect on the taste and even, make it taste nice(er.) Firstly, make sure you're hydrated. You're going to want to drink around one litre of water for every 23kg of body weight. Being well hydrated is vitally important for your overall health and is a key factor for neutral tasting ejaculate.

Other foods you're going to want to get plenty of are sweet fruits such as strawberries, pineapple and mango. You can also add fresh mint to your diet as well as parsley and wheatgrass, these are all packed with chlorophyll which helps to sweeten the taste. Make sure you're eating plenty of vegetables but avoid those with a high percentage of sulphur such as Cabbage, Broccoli and Kale, these will make your seminal fluid taste bitter so it's best to give them a miss if you're planning a passionate encounter later on.

The key to good tasting semen is consistency, keep your diet healthy and varied. Avoid junk food like the plague, the high fat and salt content not only affects the taste but also the viscosity, thick, sticky cum that tastes vile will be what you're producing which is a recipe for an unhappy lady, or lad!

Leap Year Proposals

 

Another leap year is upon us and many women across the country will be preparing to ask the most important question of their lives, ‘do you want fries with that?’ Just kidding, they’ll be preparing to ask their other half to marry them. There’s still a fair amount of stigma attached to female proposals, maybe this is because of tradition, the Disney fairy tales’ we’ve been spun as a child or if you get down to the bare bones of it, the reason for holding back may be the age old worry that he might not say yes. Simply put, equal rights extend to more than just our pay packets and ability to vote.

 

There are more than a few things to consider at this point, what are the chances of your boyfriend proposing to you? If his behaviour has changed recently maybe he’s preparing to propose himself? Have you discussed a future together? Was that discussion met with positivity or was he apprehensive and evasive? Also, is he the type of man who wouldn’t feel emasculated by you proposing to him? For some guys, this scenario might make him feel embarrassed and like less of a real man. There’s also the fact that in years to come when people ask, and they will, ‘so how did you propose?’ Some people will find it odd, they may even be catty and belittle your magic moment. If you’re both big enough not to let things like this bother you then all the better for it. All of these points need to be considered. When proposing, the worst thing you can do is jump the gun!

 

So if you’ve thought about it and made the decision then you’re going to need to figure out how you’re going to propose. That’s where I come in. Below are my 7 top tips for popping the question…

 

1.     Choose a fabulous location. This can be anything from the top of Empire State building to you spot where you had your first kiss. As long as it means something to you and your boyfriend then you simply can’t go wrong.

2.     Pick the right moment. Propose after payday. The last thing you want when you’re starting out planning a wedding is to look at your bank balance and see a big fat zero. Even if you’re not bringing home a six figure salary even having just a little bit of money will ensure you don’t start off the experience feeling like this is one giant money mountain you’re never going to be able to climb.

3.     Don’t buy a ring. You simply don’t need one. After the proposal you can go ring shopping together for your own engagement ring. If you want to keep it traditional in some sense then offering a gift of some sort is fine. A nice pair of cufflinks to wear on the wedding day will always go down well.

4.     Make it personal. It’s important not to propose in a way you would like, each proposal should be tailor made to fit the person you’re proposing to. A violin quartet and candlelight might have been perfect for you but it’s probably not what your boyfriend would want.

5.     Do plan what you’re going to say. It doesn’t have to be a Shakespearian monologue learnt off by heart and delivered with the passion and commitment of Leonardo Dicaprio in the Revenant, but having a few choice words at the ready is a definite must, keep it brief, to the point and sincere.

6.      Let a few people in on the secret. You’re definitely going to want to tell some people, his parents are a good idea, as are yours. Maybe also a best friend? Having a camaraderie with a select group will boost your confidence and give you a certain level of support you just wouldn’t get going solo. It’s also a good idea just in case it’s a bad idea. If you’ve totally misread the signs you might need someone there to help you see that. Maybe it’s too soon, he’s just not ready or he’s planning to propose himself.

7.     When the moment comes admit to your vulnerability. No matter how ballsy you are being that exposed to another person, no matter how in love you are is terrifying. He’ll appreciate your honesty and also see how brave you are to be doing this.

8.     Celebrate! There’s only one way to celebrate an engagement and that’s with a good bottle (or three) or bubbly. Organise some friends and family together at a nearby pub or bar. You can break the good news in one go and enjoy having your nearest and dearest on hand to spend time and celebrate with.
