Individual who want to have less stressful lives should include exercise, the eating of healthy food, taking vitamins, and having frequent sex as part of their lifestyle. Frequent sexual activity is now the subject of several health researches, especially those that focus on the stress relief that supposedly comes as a benefit of copulation.

With all the emotional and physical benefits it provide, sex is considered by many experts as one of the best tools for for treating stress and anxiety. Aside from taking worries off one’s mind for a ample amount of time, sex provide many stress management benefits like deep breathing, sense of touch, physical workout, and social support.

Deep breathing and touching in the sexual act relieves tension and other unwanted feelings. This kind of breathing improves blood circulation and massaging or touching certain parts of the body encourages the production of substances called endorphins, the body’s natural painkiller. It is considered as “feel-good” hormones because of the moments of bliss that it brings. Sex is not just a lustful act, it is about trust and intimacy. People who have a supportive partner manages emotional or psychological distress better, live longer, and enjoy improved overall health. This kind of emotional intimacy in sex is good for one’s emotional and physical health. In addition, these factors involved in the sexual acts leads to feelings of happiness and may slowdown the aging process.

Sex can indeed be a great stress reliever, it is not just a feeling well-being that individuals experience after sex. Orgasm is as important for the general health as many other as any other function of their bodies. Sex and orgasms promote a long-term calming effect and help keep psychological balance.

Legend behind semen

While Christianity had traditionally frowned upon public references to sex and upon any attempts to treasure what it still sees as a fundamentally dirty and degrading act, other religions and peoples had different ideas.
The best known of the exotic systems of beliefs are Tantra and various pagan denominations. Among the lesser-known systems are the beliefs of certain tribes from Papua New Guinea and Africa.

The basic idea behind such beliefs is that semen is a fluid with magic properties that can be used to augment the natural powers of other people. Some pagan circles say that semen contains the power of the male, which can be transferred to female priestesses through sex. Certain rituals include the copulation between a priestess and two or more males in order to “harvest” their semen and increase her powers.

Tantra is an esoteric tradition rooted in the religions of India, a body of beliefs and practices that differ somewhat from sect to sect, although all the sects tend to adhere to the overarching belief that the material universe is the concrete manifestation of divine energy. Some Tantra rituals include sex, but the reputation of this sexual religion seems absurd to most people in Europe and America.
Semen as a magic fluid was also a key component in many occult theories and practices in Europe and America. Occult figures like Aleister Crowley and Samael Aun Weor spoke about the power of sex and its significance in a magic context. Likewise, semen was thought to be a source of power and one of the fashions that set the occult world of fire last century was that men should never ejaculate in order to activate and increase their power.

Mens Sex Toys Product Review

Source: Flickr

With all the mens sex toys on the current market, it can always be a little confusing as to which one you should purchase. There are big names and different models of male vibrators with each having their own pros and cons. To give you an idea of what most males are currently buying when in come to mens sex toys, the four best products have been listed below, taking into account the different price ranges. Research has been carried out on a wide range of toys, by gathering information from all major shops, businesses and warehouses who sell adult products.

The four best male sex toys are as follows:

1) In the top spot we have the Jenna Haze vibrator. Made by CyberSkin, it is an actual masturbator cast from the pornography sensation Jenna Haze’s own private parts. It is made out of an ultra soft texture, giving it the real look and feel. The masturbator also has a five speed vibrating control to give it the pulsating feeling.

2) Next in line is the CyberSkin Vibrator. A big seller amongst men simply because it feels life-like. It is supplied with a removable vibrator bullet that fits into the canal for extra pleasure. It also comes with a personal lubricant to further enhance the sexual feeling.

3) The LoveClone Thrust Box is a good value for money product. Compared to the previous two, it is by far the most “real” in terms of looks. Again, it has the removable vibrator bullet, only this time it has multi vibrating speeds to help improve sexual simulation.

4) Following right behind is the LoveClone 2 Patricia Parris vibrator. This is one of the cheaper male vibrators on the market, however it still works well as a sexual simulation device. It is known to have a “magic flesh” which gives it all the qualities of feel and touch. A vibrating bullet is also supplied to further give a real sexual feeling.

Based on the four products listed above, it can still be quiet difficult on deciding which one is best. Now imagine having ALL products to choose from, it would be extremely difficult to decide and know what to purchase. This review is to give you an indication as to what sells and pleases others, and hopefully makes your decision in purchasing a lot easier.

Lines You Shouldn’t Cross

Lines You Shouldn’t Cross

A person who is just looking over swinging as a fun way to have more sex doesn’t understand the true meaning of this lifestyle.
Swinging is a way to explore your sexual fantasies and boundaries with the blessing and support of your partner. And by enjoying each other in this way, you enable better communication and deeper trust of your relationship.
But there are always ways to get your self into trouble.
There Are No Little White Lies
When it comes to a swinging relationship, there is no such thing as a little white lie.
Each and every lie that you tell will become an issue. There needs to be a perfect atmosphere of trust and truthfulness in order to feel comfortable with each other.
And in any sort of future for the relationship among the group of couples.
This is really why the recommendation is that only strong couples get into swinging. The stronger the couple is, the more likely that good communication lines are already in place.
To think of it another way, you need to be sure that you can trust the other couple as well. At the very least your privacy may be compromised. At the most, you can be emotionally hurt.
Crossing Over Boundaries
Swinging can be a great tool to overcome any sexual anxieties that you might have, but there are limits to this journey.
For one, you can not assume that just because you want something to happen during a particular sexual excursion that the other person does as well.
Of course, talking about these boundaries ahead of time will help.
But you also want to stick to what you’re promised to do. Just because you think that you may be ‘helping’ someone overcome something does not mean that they are necessarily ready.
When someone tells you to stop or that they are uncomfortable, you need to stop IMMEDIATELY.
You will destroy a perfectly good relationship in a moment of weakness.
Keeping Quiet
On the other hand, the other person will not know about your boundaries unless you tell them ahead of time.
This is no time to be shy with another couple or with your own partner. Be clear and up front about the relationship that you are trying to pursue.
You may want to set up a specific time for everyone to meet up in a non-sexual environment. This is a great way to continuously have the lines of communication open for anything that may not be easy to talk about in a certain mood or setting.
Find a neutral place that is semi-private and give everyone a chance to talk. If there are problems, then address them at that point or discuss them and set up another time to figure out solutions.
When you don’t say anything, you are setting yourself up for problems.
Issues like jealously and anger can rear their ugly heads quite quickly when there is silence. But a little talking can do a world of good and keep everyone feeling good about themselves and their sexual power.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Rape, and Sexual Abuse

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Rape, and Sexual Abuse

The estimated risk for rape survivors developing post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is 49%. The risk for those beaten or experiencing physical assault is 31.9%, whilst the risk for others who experienced sexual assault is 23.7%. Given these figures, it is no wonder women are more likely to develop PTSD than men, as they are statistically significantly more likely to experience sexual assault.

Post traumatic stress disorder is characterized by intense fear, a sense of helplessness, or horror. It can affect all areas of a person’s life, their emotions, mental wellbeing, and physical health. And symptoms are generally worse in situations, like rape and abuse, where the trauma was deliberately initiated against those involved.

A person with post traumatic stress disorder may re-live the traumatic events, having flashbacks or other reminders and images that intrude on their waking hours, or in dreams and nightmares. These reminders may also trigger physical symptoms, such as heart palpitations or chills. Or emotional problems, like anxiety, depression, and dread.

People with post traumatic stress disorder may avoid any reminders of the trauma, whether that is people associated with the experience, or places, or even thoughts of the trauma. They can distance themselves from family and friends, and withdraw from everyday activities and things they used to enjoy.

Relationship problems are common for survivors of rape and sexual abuse. Some survivors avoid intimacy, others avoid sex, and some avoid both, and create patterns in their lives where those coping mechanisms are maintained. But sufferers of PTSD who did not experience any sexual abuse can also have problems in their relationships, or in social situations.

Another characteristic of post traumatic stress disorder is being on guard all the time, and suddenly feeling anger or irritability. There can be problems with sleeping and concentrating, and sufferers may be startled easily. Self destructive behaviours, such as gambling, risky sex, drug use, alcohol abuse, or other problems like dangerous driving, may be present. Depression, disassociation, or other mental health problems can develop.

Not all of these characteristics may be present in PTSD, and the degree to which one experiences them may vary also. And PTSD may not develop until months or years after the trauma. Particularly in relation to abuse in childhood, symptoms of PTSD can pass, then reappear later in life. This can make it difficult to recognize when PTSD is occurring, as survivors may not associate their current feeling and behaviours with pas events.

Each time symptoms appear, however, they provide an opportunity for healing. Post traumatic stress disorder can be treated, using a combination of medication and psychotherapy.

Whilst medications were not thought to help in the treatment of PTSD in the past, they have been found to be beneficial now, probably due to newer ones being available. The SSRI’s (selective serotonin uptake inhibitors) zoloft and paxil are both approved by the FDA for treating PTSD. And newer antidepressants like effexor and serzone are also beneficial, and tend to be used when the patient does not tolerate paxil and zoloft, or those medications aren’t effective.

There are 3 types of psychotherapy that can be used to treat PTSD. These are exposure management, cognitive therapy, and anxiety management. A combination of all 3 may be used, or one individually. Each person is different in what they will respond to.

In exposure therapy, patients confront, in a safe therapeutic environment, the situations, people, and memories associated with the trauma. People with PTSD usually avoid this very thing, but by working through the trauma in this way, exposure therapy is actually very effective at healing PTSD.

Cognitive therapy helps in the process of understanding how our thoughts affect our feelings, and provides ways of shifting negative thinking. Negative thinking can perpetuate a mental prison where joy and interconnectedness is no longer felt. Changing those dynamics can provide a new framework with which to process the trauma, and allow healing to occur.

In anxiety management, skills are learnt that help one cope better with the symptoms and triggers of post traumatic stress disorder. They can help reduce the intensity of the symptoms, though they need to be practised to be effective. Anxiety management techniques can be very helpful in controlling anxiety whilst doing exposure therapy. Some techniques used include relaxation, breathing techniques, assertiveness training, and positive thinking and self talk.
