Top 10 last minute bedroom demands from women

Last minute requests from women in the throes of passion are common, but vary wildly from country to country according to a recent study.

Last minute requests from women in the throes of passion are common, but vary wildly from country to country according to a recent study. Whether they are delay tactics or devious demands, the top 10 last minute bedroom requests have been revealed.

The survey, conducted by VictoriaMilan – a dating website for married and attached people looking to have an extramarital affair – asked 12,104 active male members from 21 countries what the most popular last requests are of women they are taking to bed.

Women from Spain and Ireland like to do it in the dark, with men from those countries saying a last-minute request for the lights to be switched off is the most popular thing they’ll hear whispered before the magic moment.

The Swiss and Austrian ladies are known for being adventurous and active in the bedroom, but they like to keep these activities a secret from the world, safe from peeping eyes. Austrian and Swiss men say these women will only perform if the curtains are closed when it comes to crunch time.

Norwegian and Danish ladies are no strangers to bedding down with strangers – but are responsible when they have a random romp. Men from Norway and Denmark say in the last moments, Sccandinavian women are most likely to whisper their request for their lover toput on a condom.

Women from the United States and Australia are known to be boundary pushers in the bedroom, and it’s reasonable that their last request of their lovers is that he takes a showerbefore she indulges him. As she’s probably tempted him with the thought that she’ll be going places he has never dreamed of, he’ll be quick to bubble up.

Fresh breath when you’re getting fresh is important to the ladies from Hungary and Italy who want their lovers to be minty and don’t mind saying so. Hungarian and Italian ladies won’t hesitate in asking their man to pause the foreplay to brush his teeth.

The romance of the French and Portuguese is not lost in the throes of passion. When it comes to the point of no return, the gentlemen lucky enough to bed these women say they have to indulge a last request for music to create ambience.

Women from Poland and Belgium insist on keeping things silky smooth by whispering a lastrequest for baby oil before they finally allow their lover to enter them. The gents from Poland and Belgium say the intrigue of what she might do with it means they will stop everything in order to meet her last lusty request.

Socks and sex go together like pickles and ice cream – and should never be seen in the bedroom. Women from the Czech Republic, Germany and Finland will insist their loverremoves his socks before she’ll let him have the Holy Grail. Socks in the bedroom for these ladies is a deal breaker.

A little Dutch courage goes a long way with women from the Netherlands fully embracing the expression literally, and South African ladies joining them for a last drink. Men from the Netherlands and South Africa say the women they take to bed usually ask for one more sip of wine or a shot of something stronger to give them that last blast of confidence.

No matter how quickly women from the United Kingdom and Sweden hop into the sack with a man, they aren’t interested in doing it with items of clothing restricting them. The men from these countries say the last request of Swedish and British women is to be undressed, bringing to mind bodice ripping images rather than slow and sexy stripteases.

Founder and CEO of Victoria Milan, Sigurd Vedal, gave some words of advice to would-be lovers.

“If you managed to get her this far, you should indulge any last-minute wishes your lover has in order to get her over the finish line. Delaying any request from a half-naked woman in your bed is a bad idea – it’s the make-or-break moment for her, and she’ll have no problem getting up and leaving,” Vedal said. “Be prepared for more than one ‘last’ request, but fill them as soon as she asks to avoid losing the momentum and passion. To put a twist on the old expression: nice guys finish.”

This survey was conducted in 21 countries: Sweden, Australia, Portugal, Austria, Denmark, Belgium, Finland, Spain, Norway, Poland, France, Italy, Hungary, United States, Netherlands, Germany, United Kingdom, Ireland, Czech Republic, Switzerland and South Africa.

Effective exercises to boost your manhood

There are several factors why men can sometimes lose their sexual drive and basic reasons such as fatigue, stress, mental breakdown, and certain prescription drugs such as antidepressant medications.

There are several factors why men can sometimes lose their sexual drive and basic reasons such as fatigue, stress, mental breakdown, and certain prescription drugs such as antidepressant medications. Excessive consumption of alcohol, the use of illegal substances, and decreased levels of testosterone could all play a major role. People with depression may feel a loss of desire, and find sex less appealing.

In this writing, we are going to discuss some effective exercises to boost your manhood. 

Abdomen and Lower Back Exercise 

For almost every sexual position, the abdomen and pelvis muscles get used more often. For higher overall abdominal and lower back endurance, exercise reverse curls, squats, sit-ups, planks, and push-ups. Ensure you do not hollow your back, but attempt to maintain all of your muscles functioning during the workout, particularly your abs.

To make sure that you reach all of your core muscles, use side planks that tone and enhance the muscles along your sides, allowing it easier to switch positions and remain balanced. Keep your hip off the floor and legs either stacked or staggered by sitting on your side and pulling yourself up on your elbow. You must place your shoulder above your elbow, and your body is in a straight direction.

Pelvic Floor Exercise

Kegel exercises have demonstrated effectiveness in the category of sexual intercourse. This routine can help boost male and female pelvic muscles. Among the effective male enhancement exercises available online, Kegel or pelvic floor exercise is one of the most helpful for erectile dysfunction. It aims the muscles in the lower part of the pelvis and one is called the pubococcygeus in particular. Practicing pelvic floor exercises in the pubococcygeus can reinforce and boost tone. It may take around four to six weeks for an individual to notice an improvement in erections.

It is an easy but necessary exercise. To do it, lie down with knees bent, feet flat on the concrete, and arms at the sides to trigger the pelvic floor muscles. Then exhale and squeeze the pelvic floor muscles, inhale and release for a count of three. Take the time to find the correct group of muscles, those at the bottom of the pelvis should be the right ones. Be sure the muscles in your abdomen, buttocks, and legs don’t contract. When a person is comfortable doing Kegel exercises 2 to 3 times a day, adding workouts that require more movement will help.

Arm Exercises

Your physical stamina involves a certain amount of forearm strength when you are supporting a sexual position. Elevating the weight on your forearm curls is beneficial. For a couple of days each week, you can perform 1 to 2 sets of forearm curls, and make substantial improvements within a month or two.  

Most men are searching for ways to improve their success in sexual matters. It can include fixing current problems or trying to find new ways to keep their partner satisfied. Exercise and remaining healthy are among the best ways to boost your performance. By keeping your body in shape with regular exercise, you may also improve your sex life.

Incarceration, police discrimination may worsen psychological, physical health of sexual minority men – study

43% of study participants reported police discrimination within the previous year, which was most frequent among those with a history of incarceration. Respondents who faced high levels of police discrimination within the previous year also tended to show high levels of psychological distress and HIV risk, and a low willingness to take PrEP compared with their peers.

Incarceration and police discrimination may contribute to HIV, depression and anxiety among gay, bisexual and other sexual minority men, according to a Rutgers led study.

The study, funded by the National Institute of Health (NIH) and published in the journal Social Science & Medicine, examined associations between incarceration, police and law enforcement discrimination and recent arrest particularly with Black sexual minority mens’ psychological distress, risk for HIV and willingness to take pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) for HIV prevention.

“Evidence suggests Black sexual minority men in the US may face some of the highest rates of policing and incarceration in the world,” said lead author, Devin English, assistant professor at the Rutgers School of Public Health. “Despite this, research examining the health impacts of the US carceral system rarely focuses on their experiences.”

The study particularly examined how incarceration and police discrimination, which have roots in enforcing White supremacy and societal heterosexism, are associated with some of the most pressing health crises among Black sexual minority men like depression, anxiety, and HIV.

The researchers surveyed 1,172 Black, gay, bisexual, and other sexual minority men over the age of 16 from across the US who reported behaviors that increased their risk for HIV over the previous six months. Participants reported on their incarceration history, experiences of police and law enforcement discrimination, anxiety and depression, sexual behavior, and willingness to take PrEP.

They found that 43% of study participants reported police discrimination within the previous year, which was most frequent among those with a history of incarceration. Respondents who faced high levels of police discrimination within the previous year also tended to show high levels of psychological distress and HIV risk, and a low willingness to take PrEP compared with their peers. The study also found that respondents who were previously incarcerated or recently arrested had a heightened HIV risk and lower willingness to take PrEP.

“These findings transcend individual-level only explanations to offer structural-level insights about how we think about Black sexual minority men’s HIV risk,” said co-author Lisa Bowleg, professor of psychology at The George Washington University. “The study rightly directs attention to the structural intersectional discrimination that negatively affects Black sexual minority men’s health.”

The findings support the need for anti-racist and anti-heterosexist advocacy and interventions focused on reducing discrimination in societies, and the carceral system specifically.

“Despite experiencing a disproportionate burden of violence and discrimination at the hands of the police, and extremely high carceral rates, Black queer men are largely invisible in discourse on anti-Black policing and incarceration,” said co-author Joseph Carter, doctoral student of health psychology at the City University of New York’s Graduate Center. “Our study provides empirical support for the intersectional health impacts of police and carceral discrimination that have been systemically perpetrated onto Black queer men.”

City in Massachusetts officially recognizes polyamorous relationships

The city of Somerville in Massachusetts in the US passed an ordinance that officially recognizes polyamorous relationships by no longer limiting the number of people included in domestic partnerships.

The city of Somerville in Massachusetts in the US passed an ordinance that officially recognizes polyamorous relationships by no longer limiting the number of people included in domestic partnerships.

With this, Somerville becomes one of the first cities in the US to officially recognize polyamorous relationships.

This move was actually a result of a few subtle language shifts – e.g. instead of defining a relationship as an “entity formed by two persons,” the ordinance now defines it as an “entity formed by people”; replaces “he and she” with “they”; and replaces “both” with “all.”

The City Council passed the ordinance on June 25; and on June 29, Mayor Joe Curtatone signed it into municipal law.

Polyamory is usually defined as the practice of having multiple consensual intimate relationships, and is often described as consensual non-monogamy. Relationships can be sexual or romantic, and are not gender-specific. Polyamorous relationships are diverse and can look different depending on the family. Sometimes it means having a primary relationship and seeking casual intimacy, and sometimes it means involving a third or fourth (and so on) person in building a family structure.

This is important: It is illegal in all 50 American states to be married to more than one person, which is known as polygamy, not polyamory. Polygamy is tied to marriage (and is also gendered); and does not reference romance, intimacy or even consent.

Polyamory, meanwhile, refers to different kinds of arrangements — e.g. when a married couple has regular outside partners. Prior to this ordinance, there was no legal framework in Somerville for polyamorous families to share finances, custody of children or the rights and responsibilities that come with marriage.

Somerville is now in the process of changing the application to include space for more than two partners.

Montenegro legalizes same-sex civil partnerships

Montenegro legalized same-sex civil partnerships, in a 42-5 vote among the country’s lawmakers. With this move, it becomes the first European country outside of Western Europe and the European Union to legally recognize same-sex couples.

This is not a complete win, by any means.

While the new law will give same-sex couples the same legal rights as mixed-sex couples, same-sex couples will not have the right to adopt.

The country’s president, Milo Đukanović, tweeted that they were now “one step closer to joining the most developed world democracies.”

The law will come into effect next year, with details yet to be finalized, as well as government clerks needing to undergo training.

Montenegro’s pro-LGBTQIA move is only one of the country’s moves largely driven by its attempt to join the European Union. Another move includes anti-discrimination training for police services and health workers.

Still in the Balkans, parts of Bosnia and Herzegovina are also set to start a consultation that could mean the government starts recognizing same-sex relationships. Now this is worth highlighting: The country is divided into two self-governing entities, and only the Federation is considering the move. The conservative Republika Srpska, which covers less than the Federation, is not considering it.

Discover who you are and how best to live with ancient technologies

Regardless of where you’re at on your life journey there’s never a better time to cut the noise and practice an ancient technology that has worked for generations.

Published

The world is a confusing place, which isn’t helped by the bombardment of information we are expected to process on a daily basis. We get conflicting messages all the time about who we are, who we are supposed to be, and what’s essential in life. It can be we know ourselves pretty well, the data deluge can easily throw it all into doubt.

Regardless of where you’re at on your life journey there’s never a better time to cut the noise and practice an ancient technology that has worked for generations. 

Meditation 

Meditation is perhaps older than time, it’s certainly older than recorded history. The first evidence of humans meditating are carvings and wall art in ancient India that depicts people sitting in lotus positions. Fast-forward 5000 years and there are seven billion people on the planet, most of whom are plugged into the internet. Practising meditation might take a lifetime to master but accessing these ancient technologies has never been easier. There are many types of mediation to choose from, including: mindfulness, movement, and transcendental. Not all meditation types will work for everyone. The key is to try out some different ones to see what you like best or what meets your goals.

Enneagram 

For those unfamiliar with the Enneagram, it’s an ancient mathematical model for determining your personality type. Some think it came from the Sufi tradition, others that it’s from ancient Christianity, or related to Pythagoras. The Enneagram is a nine-sided shape each of which represents an archetype of worldview of the way people think and what they value. It is much more than a simple personality test.

Using questions the Enneagram can dig deep into the core traits, motivations, defence mechanisms and fears that live in the unconscious layers of our personalities. Find out what your Enneagram number is and it will empower you to be a more conscious human being, someone happier, and able to understand others much better. 

Yoga

Yoga is another ancient human technology that has come into fashion in a big way. When you think of yoga you might think of the cobra pose, the downward facing dog, of the child’s pose. You might also think of people striking impressive poses on rocky vistas. This is how yoga is presented to us in the 21st century, but in reality, it is more than that – and much simpler also. Yoga is an appreciation of the natural world and our place within it. It is simply bringing awareness to our breath and controlling it in a skillful way. Yoga is also lifestyle – how we eat, how we choose to exercise. All of these practices will bring you closer to who you are and improve your life.

Ayurveda

Ayurveda is a much lesser known life science that is starting to gain popularity among those interested in tailoring their lifestyle to their specific mental, physical, and emotional characteristics. It is an ancient Indian science of medicine that promotes health through prevention using lifestyle choices and a selection of herbs. The theory is that everyone has a particular energy pattern which comprises their own constitution. This constitution is determined by a number of factors and remains fairly constant throughout a lifetime. By analyzing this energy pattern, best practice choices can be made about what foods to eat, when to eat, among other things.

Three crucial steps for a thriving business

If your business is surviving, but not thriving, take these three crucial steps to get the most out of your company.

If you’re a business owner, you may think that simply surviving the COVID-19 crisis, and the financial impacts it has had, is enough. Think again.

If your business is surviving, but not thriving, take these three crucial steps to get the most out of your company.

Provide excellent customer service

While you likely set out to solve a problem that a customer was facing or provide a product that someone was in search of, it may have been lost somewhere along the road. It’s time to remember that. So, instead of just offering middling service at best, make sure your customer service is optimal.

Go the extra mile when you can; if a customer has a question that you don’t have the direct answer to, point them to an expert that might. Is your customer asking for an upgrade, a product, or something that you don’t offer yet but might? Don’t forget to reach out directly to them as soon as you do have it available, whether that means salted chocolate chip cookies if you own a bakery, or a new way to track receipts if you offer a SaaS solution to finances.

Offer the type of customer service that you want when you frequent a business. Each customer you interact with has their own unique customer experience, so remember that when providing them your solution or product. 

Do not cut prices even during a crisis

Don’t underestimate your company’s worth. Many start-up businesses under value their product, solution, or service. When this happens, they don’t charge enough. And do you know what happens? People don’t think they’re getting a great deal when they work with you. They just expect that you are providing them the price that you see necessary to charge them.  Investigate your pricing strategy and make sure it aligns with your product. 

There is evidence that shows when two identical services are offered at different prices, people will often go with the higher price. Why? They simply assume it’s better. If your product is good, do not cut prices, offer coupons, or boast that you’re the cheapest in the area. Not only are you attracting the wrong customers by doing this, but you’re also likely to lose customers when you raise prices that weer previously unsustainable.

Stop overpromising and under-delivering

If a car mechanic tells you that they can fix your car by that evening, you expect it to be finished by the end of the day, right? When you go to pick it up, only to find that it actually won’t be done for three more days, you’re probably more than a little miffed. What would happen though if the mechanic initially told you they’d let you know a timeframe, but expected it to be finished in about three days, and actually had it done in two? You’d think, “Wow, that was fast!”

Instead of overpromising and under-delivering, be honest with your customers. If you are planning to have an update for your app by the end of the month, be realistic. Don’t promise them more than you can actually deliver on in the allotted amount of time, and your customers will learn to trust you. 

Growing your business takes work

Growing a business isn’t all rainbows and cupcakes. It takes years of hard work and dedication, but if you want your company to thrive, not just survive, it’s time to kick it up a notch.
