Sex Education: You need lube

      No Comments on Sex Education: You need lube

Let’s be serious for a moment. There are things about sex that no one really tells you. Likely, it’s because of all the taboos around it. But, we’re all grown ups here and I’d like to pass along some of my experience and knowledge. I don’t care what your age is, I highly recommend you incorporate a lubricant into your… Read more »

Advice is not always advice

      1 Comment on Advice is not always advice

I’m always flattered when people ask me for advice. Personally, I don’t know much. Well, I know what my family has taught me, learned from the mistakes I’ve made and feel what my gut tells me.

Apparently, one of the things doctors do for women who start on birth control pills is to check their blood pressure after a few months of doses.  So the other day, I went back in for my follow up. Of course, it had to be a day when I was stressed out at work.  I hate being late and it… Read more »
