August is Hot & Hotter - When to take a time out

By Ina “Laughing Winds” Mlekush M.A. M.F.C.C Sex Counselor A.A.S.E.C.T. Certified   Many couples reach a boiling point in their relationship and do not know when or how to take a time out. They think hanging in there means stuffing emotions until one day they cannot stuff anymore and one or both explodes. This does not work as you know. They stop sharing, talking and figuring out problems together because they are too frustrated with each other. Tempers are too hot! And the bedroom cools off. The emotional walls go up and the bedroom shuts down. How long has your bedroom been a room of celibacy? Any answer beyond 7 days is too long no matter your age. Intimacy is more than intercourse. Intimacy happens when two people are talking, sharing, being vulnerable with each other, supporting each other in the growing pains of life. To enjoy intimacy which can lead to passionate love-making the heart must be open. Both partners must feel respected and honored by the other. How long has it been? Are you in a good place in your relationship? Is your sex life hot and fulfilling? What about your partners? Have you asked them directly if there is anything that can be improved upon? Women’s DNA from cave woman is to nurture young ones and please their man. Women tend not to tell the truth by omission. They do not want to hurt their men by telling them the truth. Men, do not ask a woman if your love life is ok, she will say yes. Ask her what You can do to make love making more intimate and satisfying for her. Tell her it will not hurt your feelings (and mean it) if she tells you the truth. You want to be the best lover for her that you can be. She will of course tell you, “Honey, You already are a great lover for me!” This may be true and she may turn the table on you and say, “Are you unhappy with our love life; with my love making?” Now is the time to be truthful and gentle. IF you would like more variety, to explore different aspects of love making like stripping for each other or taking on different lover personas, reading a sexy book together or playing with light bondage and discipline, this is the time to speak your truth. I suggest you start with a compliment of what you love about your sex life followed by what you would like to improve then end with a very sincere compliment. If you are dealing with either of the above phases of relationship and you cannot find your way clear to be happy with each other especially in the bedroom, time to see a Sex/Relationship/Marriage Counselor. I invite you to contact me. Our culture does not make it easy to talk about our sex life, our need for foreplay and intimacy, our desire to have variety in our sex life or the fact that most women need 20 to 40 minutes to have an orgasm. Men need 2 to 4 minutes. The sexually educated man can maintain his erection for 20 - 60 minutes and has learned to use his mouth, hands, fingers, eyes, voice and energy to be a good lover. Why can other difficult topics be talked about but the bedroom and sexual needs and desires touch a sensitive nerve and not the right one. It is sad. Your sex life is like the gasoline in the engine of your car. You want to keep your tank filled. Life is better when you are not running on fumes. When it gets hot in nature our tempers tend to have a short fuse. Heat drains you of your energy and desire to play. When it is too hot outside you hunker in and keep the AC on. If you have kids, schedule a half day to have the house to yourself. Practice walking around nude even if you have a belly, are 30 pounds overweight or underweight. Women perhaps you would feel sexier to wrap a Hawaiian sarong around your hips and stay topless. Practice cuddling, snuggling, turning off your damn phones. Create an afternoon that you and your sweetie can spend with each other relaxing. Make a meal together. If you have a pool, slip into it nude. If feels soooo good. Do not let the heat of August overheat your relationship. Try not to overwork, those who are workaholics. Or take some mini-vacations North where a weekend can be a time to enjoy cooler weather and more love making. Vacations promote lovemaking. Learn to take a time out from work, from kids, from unhappy days with each other. Create a time out and find your happy self again. You will be much easier to live with and you will be happier in your own skin.   Ina “Laughing Winds” Mlekush M.F.C.C Marriage, Relationship & Sex Counselor a.a.c.e.c.t. certified Office 623-465-9151 Ina@TalktoIna.com Facebook.com/sextherapyphoenix/ CALL ME

Humor: August 2017

John asks his wife, Mary, what she wants to celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary. “Would you like a new Mink Coat?” he asks. “Not really,” says Mary. “Well how about a new Mercedes sports car?” says John. “No,” she responds. “What about a new vacation home in the country?” he suggests. She again rejects his offer with a, “No thanks.” Frustrated he finally asks, “Well what would you like for your anniversary?” “John, I’d like a divorce,” answers Mary. John thinks for a moment and replies “Sorry dear, I wasn’t planning to spend that much.”   There was this man who walked into a bar and says to the bartender 10 shots of whiskey. The bartender asks, “What’s the matter?” The man says, “I found out my brother is gay and marrying my best friend.” The next day the same man comes in and orders 12 shots of whiskey. The bartenders asks, “What’s wrong this time?” The man says, “I found out that my son is gay.” The next day the same man comes in the bar and orders 15 shots of whiskey. Then the bartender asks, “Doesn’t anyone in your family like women?” The man looks up and says, “Apprently my wife does.”   One morning, while she was making breakfast, the local fitness freak walked up to his wife, pinched her on the bum and said, “You know dear if you firmed this up we could get rid of your girdle.” This was a bit over the limit, but she controlled herself and replied with silence. Next morning the man woke his wife with a pinch on the breast. “You know love if you firmed these up we could get rid of your bras.” That was too far over the limit. She rolled over and grabbed him by the penis. Maintaining a vice grip, she whispered in his ear, “You know dear if you firmed this up we could get rid of the postman, the pool man, the gardener and your brother.”   A fellow decides to take off early from work and go drinking. He stays until the bar closes at 2am, at which time he is extremely drunk. When he enters his house, he doesn’t want to wake anyone, so he takes off his shoes and starts tip-toeing up the stairs. Half-way up the stairs, he falls over backwards and lands flat on his rear end.That wouldn’t have been so bad, except that he had couple of empty pint bottles in his back pockets, and they broke, and the broken glass carved up his buttocks terribly. But,he was so drunk that he didn’t know he was hurt. A few minutes later, as he was undressing, he noticed blood,so he checked himself out in the mirror, and, sure enough, his behind was cut up something terrible. Well, he repaired the damage as best he could under the circumstances, and he went to bed. The next morning, his head was hurting, and his rear was hurting, and he was hunkering under the covers trying to think up some good story, when his wife came into the bedroom. “Well, you really tied one on last night,” she said. “Where’d you go?” “I worked late,” he said, “and I stopped off for a couple of beers.” “A couple of beers? That’s a laugh,” she replied, “You got plastered last night. Where the heck did you go?” “What makes you so sure I got drunk last night,anyway?” “Well,” she replied, “my first big clue was when I got up this morning and found a bunch of band-aids stuck to the mirror.”   A sixteen year-old boy came home with a new Chevrolet Avalanche and his parents began to yell and scream, “Where did you get that truck?!” He calmly told them, “I bought it today.” “With what money?” demanded his parents. They knew what a Chevrolet Avalanche cost. “Well,” said the boy, “this one cost me just fifteen dollars.” So the parents began to yell even louder. “Who would sell a truck like that for fifteen dollars?” they said. “It was the lady up the street,” said the boy. I don”t know her name - they just moved in. She saw me ride past on my bike and asked me if I wanted to buy a Chevrolet Avalanche for fifteen dollars.” “Oh my Goodness!,” moaned the mother, “John, you go right up there and see what”s going on.” So the boy”s father walked up the street to the house where the lady lived and introduced himself as the father of the boy to whom she had sold a new Chevrolet Avalanche for fifteen dollars and demanded to know why she did it. “Well,” she said, “this morning I got a phone call from my husband. “I thought he was on a business trip, but learned from a friend he had run off to Hawaii with his mistress and really doesn”t intend to come back.” “He claimed he was stranded and needed cash, and asked me to sell his new Chevrolet Avalanche and send him the money. So I did.”   While proudly showing off his new apartment to friends late one night, the drunk led the way to his bedroom where there was a big brass gong. “What’s that big brass gong for?” one of the guests asked. “Why, that’s the talking clock” the man replied. “How does it work?” “Watch”, the man said, giving it an ear-shattering pound with a hammer. Suddenly, someone on the other side of the wall screamed, “For fuck sake, you asshole, it’s 2AM in the fucking morning!!”

What The Meal?

Hello my ravishing babes it’s me, your tiny trainer, with something a little different today. Cheat meals. Cheat meals and dieting. Have you ever been on a diet and was craving a burger, pizza or even a piece of cake? You know you have these cravings. Many reasons; boredom, emotional or because of trigger moments. One thing that is important is never stop cold turkey. You have to slowly change eating habits by replacing it with healthier options. For example, a craving for something salty. Instead of getting a bag of chips you reach for some nuts. Just like when you want something sweet like cookie or ice cream grab a piece of fruit. Smart shopping is great on your pockets and your body. You are what you buy; remember that. Buy smart and eat lean. Whole grains, fruits, green leafy veggies and lean meats or if vegan no meats and dairy free options. I know we are all busy people but when you want to feel better and do better its important to know nutrition is key. Alright my healthy babies its time to chug down that water and get moving. Love you guys, Your Trainer For meal prep services email: buildamealllc@gmail.com Instagram: Build_a_meal_llc Tattd_stasia

Cocktail Corner

by Lucky G.   Hello and welcome back to another Cocktail Corner. Before I get started, I have to thank some of the people who helped us celebrate our second anniversary: George, Heather, Ryan, Lucy, J.R., Colleen, Grady, Jim, and, of course, Brooke and Amy – who looked absolutely stunning in their respective red, white, and blue bikinis – as well as everyone who stopped by to have a drink and a splash with us. And that includes all of you who enjoyed all the different versions of the Long Island Iced Tea – which we all enjoyed at the party as well. In the immortal words of Don Cornelius, “It was a stone-cold gas!” I also have to give kudos to Brooke and Amy, who came up with their own versions of the Long Island Iced Tea. Brooke calls her version the Pool Water Iced Tea, and it’s made up of equal parts vodka, gin, coconut rum, tequila, blue curacao, sour mix, and topped with pineapple juice; Amy calls her version the Long Sex-On-the-Beach Iced Tea, and it’s made up of equal parts vodka, gin, rum, tequila, sour mix, with equal splashes of cranberry and orange juices, and topped with a float of peach schnapps. Yowzah – how I love these girls! They made our pool party a lot more fun with their drinks. And speaking of pool parties, it’s time for some refreshing pool-side drinks. Since it’s summer and we’re talking about having fun times at the pool, I thought that staying with refreshing drinks was a good idea. And for some reason, rum immediately popped into my head; after all, rum does make some deliciously refreshing drinks ... So like a pirate captain searching the high seas for booty – as in treasure – my crew and I pillaged merchant ships and ransacked coastal towns looking for rum cocktails for you to enjoy ... Actually, the guys and I were talking about booty – as in hotties – while floating in the pool and drinking rum. But hey, it’s the thought that counts – right? So let’s start off with a bit of history. Although rum can be made anywhere that sugarcane grows, most of the world’s rum comes from the Caribbean, with the very first island to produce rum being Barbados, in 1641. Before, during, and after the Age of Pirates (mid 1600’s to early 1700’s), rum was such a valuable commodity that in many instances, it was actually used as currency between countries. During this same time, this spirit was given to British sailors as a daily ration, which worked out to be one half pint of 160 proof rum per day! It was later diluted with water and lime in such a way that the sailors took to calling it “grog.” And getting back to pirates, we’ve all heard the phrase, “Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum ...” Well, that’s a line from a ditty (song) in the Robert Louis Stevenson book, Treasure Island, and it’s very likely based on a true story. “Fifteen men on a dead man’s chest, yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum – Drink and the devil had done the rest, yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum.” Stevenson based his book on all the stories he heard about pirates, and there’s actually a Dead Chest Island in the British Virgin Islands. According to legend, Edward teach – otherwise known as Blackbeard – once marooned a mutinous crew on this barren island, leaving them all with nothing more than a cutlass (sword) and a bottle of rum each. Teach thought they would all eventually kill each other, but when he returned after 30 days, he was surprised to find that 15 of them were still alive ... Yo-ho-ho, mateys. Okay, time for drinks. In the spirit of summer and enjoying tall, refreshing drinks by the pool, all the following cocktails are made in tall glasses ... Enjoy. Rum Swizzle 1 ounce of Myers’s dark – 1 ounce of Bacardi gold – fill with pineapple juice – swirl grenadine on top – add 2 dashes Angostura bitters ... Swizzle drinks were originally stirred with a swizzle stick – hence the name. Pirate Buck 2 ounces of Capt. Morgan spiced – fill with half ginger ale and half sour mix – add a lime garnish ... I created this drink and it’s one of my favorites. Pirate Storm 2 ounces of Capt. Morgan spiced – fill with 1/3 grapefruit juice and 2/3 orange juice – swirl grenadine on top – add 2 dashes of Angostura bitters ... Another cocktail that I created and it’s a very tasty one. Cajun Lemonade 2 ounces of Bacardi Superior – fill with 2/3 Sprite of 7-Up and 1/3 with sour mix – add 3-4 drops of Tabasco ... This is a deliciously sexy drink. Bull Moose 1 ounce of Capt. Morgan spiced – 1 ounce of Myers’s dark – fill with grapefruit juice and half tonic – add a lime garnish ... This is a really odd name for a seriously good cocktail. Dark & Blustery 2 ounces of Myers’s – fill with ginger ale – add a lime garnish ... This is my version a classic cocktail called a Dark & Stormy and it’s seriously refreshing. And there you have it – a half dozen rum cocktails you won’t see in most places that are deliciously fun and refreshing to drink. Not only that, but they’re easy to make and even easier to enjoy. So gather all your adventurous friends together and plan on having yourselves a swashbuckling good time drinking these cocktails at your next pool party; after a few of these, the pirate in you is sure to come out. And speaking of pools and parties, after seeing Brooke and Amy in their Independence Day bikinis – “God Bless America, For purple mountains majesty, Above the fruited plain” – I can’t wait to see them sailing the high seas in their pirate bikinis ... Actually, they’ll just be floating on their pink flamingo rafts in the pool, but close enough – aargh! So until next month. CHEERS!

THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF HAVING SEX

by Lucien Gunn   We all know that sex is a good – and for all the obvious reasons. But what many of us had no idea about is that having sex actually benefits our health. The world of academia has been studying human sexuality for more than 150 years, but the research conducted in the last 25 years has produced the most enlightening results. Conducted in different parts of the world, and from a variety of perspectives, these studies have all reached conclusions that point to the positive benefits of having sex. In fact, research has shown that engaging in consistent sexual activity – particularly with a steady partner – is integral to maintaining a healthy life. So with that in mind, we thought we should share with you a list of the benefits to having sex that are said to boost and maintain our overall health. Good Exercise ... We are continually inundated with news concerning the necessity of keeping ourselves in good physical condition by adopting an exercise regimen. But the news no one tells us is that sex should also be part of a healthy exercise program. According to studies conducted by the University of Quebec at Montreal, sex actually qualifies as a moderate exercise, because it raises our heartbeat to beneficial cardio-vascular levels, and burns at least 100 calories per session. To put that into a better perspective, the average sexual interlude – about 25 minutes including foreplay – is equivalent to playing a game of doubles tennis or walking uphill. Immune System ... There is a constant influx of information about how to help keep our immune system from being taxed. And to help us, there is something that actually kicks our immune system into high gear. According to researchers at Wilkes University in Wilkes-Barre, PA, having sex at least two times per week increases the immunoglobulin A (lgA) proteins in our system by 30 percent over persons who are sexually inactive. The benefit to this is that the lgA proteins act as antibodies by binding to pathogens when they first enter the body, then summoning the immune system to destroy them. Pain Away ... Almost all of us get aches and pains from time to time – sometimes without ever knowing why. But interestingly enough, orgasms can actually help. Studies show that during an orgasm, oxytocin – also known as the love hormone – is released into our system, as well as a massive wave of endorphins. This combination not only alleviates those aches and pains, but also helps to make arthritis pain subside, lessens the pains associated with menstrual cramps, and helps to regulate a woman’s monthly cycle. Bad Moods ... We all know that antidepressants are sometime essential for maintaining a healthy mood. Unfortunately, those antidepressants also act as sexual inhibitors by stifling the libido – which does nothing to improve your mood. But according to a study published in the journal of Fertility and Sterility, there are better, more traditional “strategies” for treating depression – such as physical exercise and, more importantly, having sex regularly. It seems that sex successfully and consistently boosts our mood with that massive wave of endorphins, helping to ward off depression. Men’s Health ... Orgasms – not only do they feel good, but they can actually add years to your life. Researchers from Queens University in Belfast, Northern Ireland, found that by having sex three or more times per week, men can realistically lessen their risk of heart attack and/or stroke by as much as 50 percent – which is a huge margin. And as a correlation to this study, a survey of 30,000 men over the age of 30 by the National Cancer Institute, found that those who averaged better than 15 ejaculations per month showed a 33 percent lower risk of prostate cancer – which is significant. Younger and Longer ... It seems like the proverbial Fountain of Youth has been with us all along. Apparently, all we need to do in order to look younger is to have more sex, because engaging in consistent and/or regular sexual activity can make us look up to ten years younger – which sure beats botox; that number, however, is based upon having a steady sex partner as opposed to engaging in casual sex with random people. So even though having a consistent sexual life is not going to actually reverse the aging process, studies show that having a sex on a regular basis does increase the likelihood of our living a longer, healthier, and younger-looking life. Intelligence ... Of all the studies conducted related to sex, nothing beats the tripartite conclusion arrived at by the University of Maryland, Konkak University in South Korea, and Pavia University in Italy – that having sex can actually make us more intelligent. Their combined findings are based on three biological factors: (1) our brain cells are flooded with oxygen during sex, creating an ideal condition for neural expansion within the area of the brain responsible for the formation of long term memory; (2) the increased blood flow to our brain during sex protects the newly-created neurons, as well as cushioning against the memory-deterring effects of stress; (3) the combined increase of oxygen and blood to our brain also promotes the growth of nerves in the area of our brain responsible for heightened alertness, and memory retention. Talk about being a modern-day panacea ... Engaging in frequent and/or regular sexual activity obviously goes beyond the simple aspect of feeling good. It works as good exercise, helps to build our immune system, eases our aches and pains, brightens our moods, provides a major boost to our longevity, aids us in looking younger, and is an important factor in making us more intelligent. The evidence is overwhelming, then, that maintaining consistent sexual activity is an integral part of an overall healthy lifestyle – especially with a steady partner. In fact, having sex is so beneficial for us that it should probably become a standard part of a daily prescription provided by our physician ... Who knows, maybe one day in the near future, we just might have our doctor say to us, “Go home, have two orgasms, and call me in the morning.”

JULY FIREWORKS CAN HAPPEN IN YOUR BEDROOM

By Ina “Laughing Winds” Mlekush M.A. M.F.C.C Sex Counselor A.A.S.E.C.T. Certified   Fireworks cannot happen in a 10 minute quickie unless you just met at a bar and the chemistry is flying. Then any good lover does not want it to be over that fast. It feel‘s too good, why rush it. A good lover will make it last for hours if not at least 30 – 45 minutes. The first rule of thumb men is to bring your woman to an orgasm before you even think of jumping on. Waiting to feel the exquisite feelings of that first kissing of your manhood to her soft wet womanhood can actually wait. Building then backing off to build again allows your whole body and soul, not just your genitals, to awaken and pulse with the desire of the eventual fireworks. If you are in an unfortunate relationship where one of you may say No at the “drop of a look” then I am sorry this is your love life. You can change it. You may need the help of a marriage/sex counselor. You do not need to live the rest of your life with this kind of painful relationship and almost non-existent sex life. Man or woman, it can happen to you. Your partner seldom desiring to make love or does not understand the importance of foreplay especially for women. And, if it is a good day, your attitude is, you better grab it before they change their mind. This does not make for Fireworks! That is… the kind you enjoy in bed. There can be lots of fireworks from anger and frustration. And that is not the pleasant sort. I have been speaking to those who are in some kind of relationship. What about you men and women who are single for many reasons. For example; A relationship is too much bother. You do not want to get burned again. You are grieving the loss of a loved one. You are rejoicing the divorce and are enjoying being by yourself. Or you just can’t find the right one and actually too busy working to spend much time looking. What kind of Fireworks can you create in the bedroom this July? The month of Celebrating our Country’s Independence Day. Here are some suggestions. One “Get Laid” by a friend who would be delighted to share love and intimacy with you. It would be scary to ask, scary to admit you really need to be touched and loved and do it anyway. Fear is nothing more than a false shadow of doubt. Find your courage to ask and be pleased at the energy you gain from the courage you showed even if they say they will be out of town and so sorry they cannot help you out, this time! More options – buy a dvd of sensual erotic soft or hard porn, treat yourself and self-pleasure. Do not rush this. Take your time and make love with yourself, at least 20 to 30 minutes. You too can build and back off several times creating an intensity that can explode the top of your head off. Practice makes perfect. The more you practice with self-pleasuring in this format the more intense your orgasms can be. Summer is in full swing in the month of July. What are your plans to stay cool, enjoying friends and family? What is on your bucket list to do or to repeat? There are things you love to do and do not do them often enough. Plan it, set the time aside and make yourself a priority. Include those you love and create memories together. The country is remembering our Forefathers and the struggles they went through to create a Free Independent Nation. It is our responsibility to defend our Right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. Are you doing this on a daily basis or just working with your nose to the grind stone? Life is meant to be celebrated every day of your life, in small and big ways. So big it takes your breath away to realize you have actually accomplished a dream. Ignite your Fire Works to express your talents, skills and abilities that you have taken for granted. You are far greater then what you ever you think yourself to be. Enjoy being a sacred sexual human being. Never stop being sexual and intimate with yourself or others. Living a long fruitful life is only as enjoyable as you allow it to be. Allow yourself to enjoy intimacy till your final breath. Have courage to be happy no matter what your circumstances. The events in your life are NOT YOUR LIFE. HOW you deal with them is your life. Happy Birth of the United States. I invite you to have the courage to live your life with the freedom your forefathers and foremothers carved out of a wilderness and claimed it to be an Independent and Free country. It is now in your hands to live life fully and appreciating those who have given their last full measure to keep us free.   Ina “Laughing Winds” Mlekush M.F.C.C Marriage, Relationship & Sex Counselor a.a.c.e.c.t. certified Office 623-465-9151 Ina@TalktoIna.com Facebook.com/sextherapyphoenix/ CALL ME

HUMOR: July 2017

A blonde walked into an electronics store and said to the salesmen, “I want that tv.” The salesperson shook his head and said, “No, we don’t sell to blondes.” So the blonde left and came back with her hair dyed brown and said, “I’ll take that tv.” Again the salesman said, “No, we don’t sell to blondes.” So she left again and came back with her hair dyed black and said, “I want that tv.” But the salesman still said, “No, we don’t sell to blondes.” Finally the blonde got fed up and said, “That’s it! How’d you know I was a blonde?!” she asked. The salesman answered, “Cause that’s a microwave.” Johnny attended a horse auction with his father. He watched as he moved from horse to horse, running his hands up and down the horse’s legs, rump, and chest. After a few minutes, Johnny asked, “Dad, why are you doing that?” His father replied, “Because when I’m buying horses, I have to make sure that they are healthy and in good shape before I buy. Johnny, worried, said, “Dad, I think the UPS guy wants to buy Mom.” An instructor asked his class one day, “Anyone know the chemical formula for water?” “Sure. That’s easy,” said one man. “What is it?” “H, I, J, K, L, M, N, O.” “What?! what?” reasked the instructor. “You know, H to O.” came the reply. Little Johnny’s Chemistry teacher wanted to teach his class a lesson about the evils of liquor, so he set up an experiment that involved a glass of water, a glass of whiskey, and two worms. “Now, class. Observe what happens to the two the worms,” said the professor putting the first worm in the glass of water. The worm in the water moved about, twisting and seemingly unharmed. He then dropped the second work in the whiskey glass. It writhed in pain for a moment, then quickly sank to the bottom and died. “Now kids, what lesson can we derive from this experiment?” he asked. Little Billy raised his hand and wisely responded, “Drink whiskey and you won’t get worms!” A guy goes to the supermarket and notices an attractive woman waving at him. She says hello. He’s rather taken aback because he can’t place where he knows her from. So he says, “Do you know me?” To which she replies, “I think you’re the father of one of my kids.” Now his mind travels back to the only time he has ever been unfaithful to his wife and says, “My God, are you the stripper from my bachelor party that I made love to on the pool table with all my buddies watching while your partner whipped my butt with wet celery?” She looks into his eyes and says calmly, “No Sir, I’m your son’s teacher.” Q: What do a hemophiliac and a virgin have in common? A: One prick and they’re done. One day, during a lesson on proper grammar, the teacher asked for a show of hands for who could use the word “beautiful” in the same sentence twice. First, she called on little Suzie, who responded with, “My father bought my mother a beautiful dress and she looked beautiful in it.” “Very good, Suzie,” replied the teacher. She then called on little Michael. “My mommy planned a beautiful banquet and it turned out beautifully, he said. “Excellent, Michael!” Then, the teacher called on little Joe. “Last night, at the dinner table, my sister told my father that she was pregnant, and he said, ‘Beautiful, just fucking beautiful!’”

FITNESS: Summertime Fine

July 2017 By Anastasia Prophete Hey my beautiful baewatch studs and queens it’s me your favorite trainer with another balls-to-the-wall-crawling-out-the-gym workout session. How many of you are so close to your beach bod you can taste the sand in your mouth (wait, eww lol). Well, let’s kick off the rest of that stubborn fat so you can feel great in that swimsuit. Let’s get the blood flowing by getting on the treadmill or elliptical (for low knee impact) for 5 to 10 minutes. Alright, now grab a barbell of choice, we will be doing shoulder press ups front and then to the back (of the neck) followed by a squat. That whole thing equals one rep; we will be doing 3 sets of 12-15 reps. Do lighter weights because of the high reps. You can keep the same barbell or change it out for the next exercise. Bicep curl with a underhand front raise. Try to get 3 sets of 10-15 reps in. Are you guys okay? Good, put the weight down find a bench and do dips. To challenge yourself cross one leg over the other for added weight. 3 sets of 15 please! Time for another compound exercise. Grab dumbells (again of your choice) for two arm rows with a stiff leg deadlift. Make sure after you row to extend your arms down to proceed into the deadlift. Hmmm, 3 sets of 15 will do. My favorite part is up; abdominals! Snag two 10 or 25 pound plates. Get into a plank position place one foot in the groove of the plate and pull in with your core (obvisiously you’re using legs too but the main focus is your core). 3 sets of 15 on each side. While in a plank position still rock slowly from side to side. Make sure to hold your core or this exercise is pointless. Finish off with 100 situps (or more) 3 sets and mountain climbers for good measure (3 sets of 25). Welp, that’s it for today my sexy mermans and mermaids.

Cocktail Corner - Long Island Iced Tea

By Lucky G.   Hello and welcome to the second anniversary of Cocktail Corner. That’s right, it’s been another whole year, and again, it seems like it was only yesterday that I started writing this column; to say the absolute least, it’s been a stone cold blast. But there’s no way I would’ve been able to do it without all the dedicated people, here, at the Magazine. Their hard work in putting out issue after issue is truly inspirational, and I raise a drink to their efforts. This is especially true of our Editor, Vinson James, because it was his idea for Cocktail Corner, and he’s been nothing but supportive and encouraging in giving me the opportunity to write this column. But even more important, I have to say THANK YOU to everyone who reads Cocktail Corner every month. It’s all of YOU who’ve supported me these past two years with all of your comments and feedback about all the stories and drinks I write about every month. And that includes all of you who randomly stop me in any of the clubs or lounges to ask me a question about something I’ve written. It’s all of your continuing interest that makes this effort so satisfying, because none of this would be possible without all of YOU. So, again, THANK YOU, and let’s get to some drinking. To celebrate Cocktail Corner’s second birthday, I think we should create a tradition, and stay with the same drink we imbibed to celebrate our first birthday. And since we’ll once again be sitting poolside during our celebration, we’re not going to want to be constantly getting up to refresh our drinks, so a tall drink is definitely in order – and one that can also be easily adapted to our friends’ personal tastes. And in case anyone doesn’t remember what last year’s birthday drink was – and it’s pretty easy to forget when you drink enough of them – that drink is the one and only Long Island Iced Tea. This tall, refreshing drink has been around for quite awhile, and it’s as delicious today as when it was first invented – which some people say was way back in the 1920’s. There’s a story that states the Long Island Iced Tea was originally invented by “Old Man Bishop” during Prohibition in the 1920’s, and later perfected by his son, Ransom Bishop. Their version contained vodka, gin, rum, tequila, whiskey, maple syrup, the juices of ½ a lemon and ½ a lime, and topped with cola. It was named after the community where the elder Bishop lived, which was called Long Island, and located in the town of Kingsport, Tennessee. But this is really difficult to verify, because no one was claiming to be inventing drinks during Prohibition; and this story didn’t even surface until someone else claimed to invent this now iconic drink. This happened in 1972 when a bartender named, Robert “Rosebud” Butt (real name), claims he invented the Long Island Iced Tea while working at the Oak Beach Inn on Long Island, New York, for a contest that involved using triple sec; his recipe of vodka, gin, rum, tequila, triple sec, sour mix, and topped with cola is the one everyone knows and uses. The only problem with Butt’s claim, though, is that the Long Island Iced Tea recipe actually appears in three different cookbooks throughout the 1960’s – including the 1961 New Picture Cookbook by none other than Betty Crocker. So it seems that no one can really say who actually invented this drink. But in the end, all that matters is that it’s a pretty tasty concoction, and perfect for a day of celebration. So with that bit of history out of the way, let’s get to the recipes – all served in a Collins or other tall glass. Long Island Iced Tea ... Equal parts vodka, gin, rum, tequila, triple sec – fill with sour mix – top with a splash of Coca Cola ... This is one we all know and love; but what if you don’t like carbonated soda and want something different? In that case, try this version ... Long Beach Iced Tea ... Equal portions of the same liquors and sour mix – top with a splash of cranberry juice ... A very refreshing drink that leaves out all that carbonation from the Coke; but what if you’re not crazy about cranberry juice? Then try this ... South Beach iced Tea ... Equal portions of all the same liquors and sour mix – top with a splash of orange juice ... A very nice combination of the lemon-lime sour mixed with the citrus of the orange; but why stop here? Let’s try another juice ... Hawaiian Iced Tea ... Equal portions of all the same liquors and sour mix – top with a splash of pineapple juice ... For you pineapple lovers out there, another refreshing version that’s perfect for your Hawaii 5-0 party. But there’s more ... Florida Iced Tea ... Equal portions of all the same liquors and sour mix – top with a splash of grapefruit juice ... Try using fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice, because it’s way better-tasting than the stuff from the can or the carton. And just for good measure ... Old Man Bishop Iced Tea ... Equal parts vodka, gin, rum, tequila, maple-flavored whiskey – fill with sour mix – top with Coca Cola ... This is my modern-day version of the 1920’s recipe that should make whiskey drinkers happy. Now that’s a really nice set of drinks. And even though they all use the same liquors, all of them will taste slightly different from each other, because of the final splash of juice or cola. And remember that all these variations take a lemon wedge garnish – just like a regular, non-alcoholic iced tea – if you feel like dressing them up a bit. But the garnish really isn’t important when you’re enjoying these drink variations, sitting poolside on a hot summer day, while celebrating a birthday, because at that point, only the drink matters; unless, of course, you’re celebrating poolside with some hotties. And speaking of celebrating with some hotties, Brooke and Amy need my opinion on which bathing suit they should wear for the pool party – yes! So until next month. CHEERS!

20 Shagalicious Sexual Facts You Never Knew

By Lucien Gunn   Readers of our Magazine know that we are always bringing you stories that are fun, informative or sometimes both; well, this month is no exception. And since we thoroughly enjoy all matters related to sex, it only makes sense that the majority of these stories are sexual in nature. So when we recently came across some rather interesting and entertaining sexual information, we could only think about passing it along for you to enjoy as well; and some of that information is rather enlightening. For instance, ever wonder how many people are having sex at any given moment? How about how many calories a measure of semen contains? Or when do strippers actually make the most money? If these and other burning questions are keeping you awake at night – like it did for us – then you owe it to yourself to learn those answers once and for all. So to help quell the unrest caused by these and other vexing questions, we offer a small sampling of the fun facts that caught our interest, and we think will catch your interest as well ... Oh, Behave! 1. There are at least 100 million acts of sexual intercourse each day. In other words, roughly 65,000 couples are having sex at this moment (except for everyone reading this). 2. According to researchers at the University of Quebec, having sex counts as moderate exercise – burning 100 - 200 calories per session (one and thrust and two and thrust). 3. Speaking of university, it seems that women who have attended an institution of higher learning are more likely to engage in anal sex (and not just anatomy majors). 4. For both men and women, having regular sex helps to improve your sleep cycle, lower your blood pressure, and ease stress; additionally, it also helps to lower a woman’s risk of heart disease, stroke, breast cancer, and depression (so have sex and get happy). 5. The typical person spends about 600 hours having sex between the ages of 20 and 70 (that breaks down to only 12 hours per year or only 1 hour per month!) 6. Spending time in the sun increases the levels of Vitamin D in the body; for men, this boosts the hormone testosterone, thereby increasing libido (see number 5). 7. Research has indicated that complete sexual inactivity may actually lead to a reduction in penis size (see numbers 5 and 6). 8. And speaking of penis size, American Jonah Falcon is said to have the world’s largest penis at 9.5 inches when flaccid and 13.5 inches when erect (we have no words). 9. University of California researchers found that men who helped with the housework enjoyed 50% more sex than those who did no housework at all (we just want to know if that actually counts as foreplay?). 10. The global research site, OnePoll.com, reports that women believe Spain, Brazil and Italy produce the best male lovers (Ole, Baby!). 11. According to Dutch researchers, the part of the brain involved with fear and anxiety – the amygdala – shuts down during a woman’s orgasm (so that brain mush is legit). 12. Sex makes a woman’s skin glow and her hair shinier, because of all the extra estrogen it causes her body to produce (forget about those creams and conditioners). 13. Research indicates that a woman’s lips are a visible expression of her health and fertility; the higher her estrogen levels, the fuller her lips – making her more attractive to men (“just want ... your kiss”). 14. One teaspoon of semen contains 300 million sperm, which ejaculates at 28 mph, and can live in a woman’s body for a week (true ninjas in waiting). 15. As far as nutrition is concerned, one teaspoon of semen contains 200 different proteins, and has only seven (7) calories (the original lo-cal, lo-carb supplement). 16. And from a topical viewpoint, the proteins in sperm give it anti-wrinkle properties when rubbed into the skin (that was the real Something About Mary). 17. Studies claim that the highest number of orgasms experienced by a woman in one hour is 134 – or 2.23 per minute; the same studies also show that the highest number of orgasms experienced by a man in one hour is 16 (how is either one possible!?). 18. Studies have proven that one testicle hangs slightly lower than the other so they avoid striking each other when a man is moving (truly intelligent design). 19. A woman has twice as many nerve endings on her clitoris than a man has on his entire penis (how is that fair?). 20. Several studies have concluded that strippers earn more money when they ovulate, because of the sexually-stimulating pheromones they release at that stage of their menstrual cycle (Got Money). And there you have 20 Shagalicious Sexual Facts You Never Knew. And if these facts piqued your curiosity, then we strongly recommend that you look for more of this information in Sex: 369 Facts To Blow You Away by Sadie Cayman. This book contains a plethora of sexual information that ranges from the ridiculous to the sublime, and is guaranteed to amuse and bemuse, as well as inform. As evidenced from the small sampling we offered for your edification, Sadie’s book is sure to satisfy everything that any inquiring mind would ever want to know about sex... Groovy, Baby!
