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!

Is Your Establishment Making All It Could? Sculpture Hospitality Helps Companies Maximize Bar Profits

As often as the life of working at Quest Magazine brings us in contact with bars, bar managers and staff, when we came across Sculpture Hospitality and learned what they do and how we were infinitely intrigued. The methods they are using are nothing short of effective. Sculpture Hospitality will, among other things, make sure that your establishment’s staff and equipment are able to more effectively meet their highest potential. From teaching you how to create Management Incentive Plans that actually work to teaching you and your staff how to properly use and navigate the huge free (or low cost) advertising potential of social media marketing and rapport, how to avoid the overstocked/under stocked paradox, how to fix dysfunctional POS systems and more. Here is a small peek at some of their methods... The Motivation to Focus on Profitability There’s a reason why everyone in the restaurant industry is talking about Management Incentive Plans (MIPs). Highly successful when used effectively, they motivate hospitality managers to stay laser-focused on the most valuable, controllable, profit-enhancing elements of your business. With the right balance, you can structure an MIP to pay a portion of salary according to performance, giving you the flexibility to recoup losses if they occur. The Keys to Successful Incentives Successful MIPs start with the right objectives, and they include an appropriate and adequate financial reward. The plans that truly motivate are applied fairly and consistently, plus they involve regular monitoring and communication. An effective MIP will give your restaurant manager a sense of ownership, providing the motivation to focus on correct, controllable measurements, despite the many distractions of a busy restaurant. When incentive plans set unrealistic objectives, pay out only once a year, or lack regular discussion and revision, the effect can be quite different. Handled without due care and attention, an MIP can become demoralizing and demotivating to your staff, and fail to accomplish the primary objective of improving profitability. A Valuable Recruitment Tool Nowadays, many large chains offer their management teams 401ks, health benefits, training, education, and even ownership options. Implementing an MIP places you in a competitive position, so you can tap into a prospective employee’s entrepreneurial spirit. It will help you attract and retain the best talent available, because top performers welcome the opportunity to control salary, and thrive on the motivation to earn more by reaching objectives. Beyond MIPs... The Wide World of Social Media, POS Systems, & Efficient Ordering The explosion of Facebook, Yelp, and other social media has upended traditional restaurant and bar marketing and now for little to no cost it can be taken advantage of for a number of it’s promotional abilities. Any bar or restaurant owner right now who has a growing business and who is doing well or is maintaining business or who wants to grow business at some point turns to advertising and marketing to get people in. It might be radio. It might be TV. It might be magazines. Whatever it is, they’re advertising to get people in the door and grow their business. They have no idea whether people heard their ad on the radio. They have no way to measure the success, necessarily, of that media. What they’ll have done is they’ll have bought a 30 second spot in the hope that it gets people in the door. If you’re sceptical about social media, something to bear in mind is that we already know from the numbers, from all the statistics that we hear every day, that our customers are using social media. So wouldn’t it make more sense to be where our customers are - rather than hoping that they’ll listen to the radio that we take our ad out on. And we already know our customers are spending one, two, three, four hours a day on social media every day. So, it makes sense to be where our customers are, and that’s the biggest reasons why social media makes sense for bars and restaurants. After Sculpture Hospitality gets done teaching you how to use Social media to it’s fullest you’ll also learn about how you may be sabotaging yourself with a dysfunctional POS system and how to maximize profits with simple programming changes. For instance they will help you eliminate generic modifiers, better structure new modifiers, how to be speedy without “speed keys”, using POS for effective inventory control, encouraging upselling, tracking comps, spills and kitchen use, how to integrate color coding and more. Touchscreen point-of-sale (POS) systems can cost more than $20,000. So, why do so many POS installers dumb the system down to the level of a $200 cash register? This is a phenomenon we see all too often. Operators waste much of that $20,000 if they set up their POS system to include so-called “speed keys” that enable the bartender or server simply to ring up well liquor or import beer, rather than the drink or brand ordered. Inevitably, when the system allows for the use of speed keys, most drinks are rung up using them—which defeats the whole purpose of buying an expensive POS system in the first place. If all your sales reports can tell you is that you sold 312 premium liquor drinks, you’re not getting much value out of your POS system. In fact, a cash register could have told you the same information at 1/100th of the cost! Another confusing conundrum facing the Bar & Restaurant Industry is that most bars carry too much inventory—between $6,000 and $10,000 too much. Yet, all too often, they run out of something between orders. Bar and restaurant owners are right to be confused about how and why they’re running out of items despite the fact that their overall inventory level is actually excessively high. The problem, of course, is that most bars have too much of the wrong things. Still, this doesn’t completely explain the root cause. Clearly, the ordering process in our industry is flawed. Here’s why: There are four main ways that an establishment determines how much to order: 1. Eye-balling it, 2. Deferring responsibility, 3. Set up a par for historical use, 4. An empty bottle assessment. These are all subpar methods for this task and use of subpar methods comes at the cost of profits you should be collecting. One of our better methods is to establish a par that is re-calculated every week. Thus, pars are automatically raised as a brand’s sales go up and automatically lowered if a brand’s sales drop.

HUMOR June 2017

A lady is in labor, shouting the usual shit, “Get this out of me! Give me the drugs!” She turns to her boyfriend and says, “You did this to me, you fucker!” He casually replies, “If you’ll remember, I wanted to stick it up your ass, but you said, ‘fuck off, it’ll be too painful.’”   A married couple down on their luck decides to make a few extra bucks by reluctantly having the wife work the corner. After the first day the husband picks her up and asks “how did you do?” She says, “I did pretty well, I made $200.50”. He asks, “What asshole gave you 50 cents?” She replies “all of them”. A family are driving behind a garbage truck when an old dildo flies out and thumps against the windshield of the car. Embarrassed, and to spare her young daughter’s innocence, the mother turns around and says, “Don’t worry honey; that was just a bug.” To which, her daughter replies calmly, “I don’t know how it could even get off the ground with a cock like that.” When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle... Then I realized that The Lord doesn’t work that way, so I stole one and asked him to forgive me.       A mother was listening to her young son playing with his new electric train in the other room. She heard the train stop and her son said, “All of you sons of bitches who want off, get the fuck off now, cause this is the last stop! And all of you sons of bitches who are getting on, get your asses in the train.” The mother went nuts and told her son, “We don’t use that kind of language in this house. Now I want you to go to your room and you are to stay there for two hours and think about what you’ve done.” Two hours later, the son comes out of the bedroom and resumes playing. Soon the train stops and the mother heard her son say, “All passengers who are disembarking from the train, please remember to take all of your belongings with you. We thank you for riding with us today.” She hears the little boy continue, “For those of you just boarding, we ask you to stow all of your hand luggage under your seat.” As the mother began to smile, the child added, “For those of you pissed about the two hour delay, please see the bitch in the kitchen!”

Strip Club Journals: 33rd Annual XRCO Awards

The 33rd annual XRCO awards were held April 27th in Hollywood, California at the OHM nightclub. As the AVN Awards are the “Oscar’s of Porn”, the XRCO Awards are the “Academy Awards of Porn”. This adult industry awards show is voted on by only adult industry members. Thus, making it an experience of who is who within the adult industry. The XRCO voters are a group of writer and editors within the adult industry called the American X-Rated Critics Organization. In 1984 when the XRCO awards began, the American X-Rated Critics Organization was only an American based group of voters. However over the years, they have evolved into an international organization. All members of the X-Rated Critics Organization are active members of the adult industry. Thus, making the XRCO awards unique and one of a kind. “Another great High school reunion of jocks, cool kids, dorks, and that one “medicated” chick crawling around on the dirty concrete. Can’t wait for another reunion!” ~Ivan, The Puba Network (@IamIvanxxx) As an adult industry journalist, this was first awards show I attended as a guest rather than as press. The differences were astounding. I normally attend adult industry events alone. Award shows are work and not a social function. However this time, I allowed myself the opportunity to enjoy the XRCO awards show as a social function with a slight agenda to capture the events of the night. Holly Hendrix was one of the favorites of the night. She won the 2017 XRCO “Superslut” award.[1] This matched with her 2017 AVN award for “Best New Starlet” put her on the list of adult actresses to keep an eye on. Greatness awaits her if her she keeps herself in the favor of the adult industry votes and the fan votes. What a great way to start a career and what a beautiful little lady! Briana Banks won the “Best Cumback” award for 2017. She is represented by OC Modeling and had many great things to say when she found out she was an award winner. “I’m thrilled to have won this award, I put all my heart and energy into my comeback. I have to thank all the directors that continue to use me in their productions, my publicity team, Star Factory PR, and all the reviewers who are part of the XRCO for recognizing my performances. I have a lot of exciting projects on the horizon, and I can’t wait to share them with everyone.”~Briana Banks [2] Kleio Valentien took home the award for “Best Actress” for playing Harley Quinn in the adult movie “Suicide Squad XXX: An Axel Braun Parody”. “Best Actor” awards went to Tommy Pistol for his role in the same movie: Suicide Squad XXX: An Axel Braun Parody. Plus, shockingly enough, “Suicide Squad XXX: An Axel Braun Parody” won the award for “Best Parody”. Also, director Axel Braun won “Best Director (Parody)”. If this many people within the adult industry think this movie and its performers are this great it is probably worth giving a whirl. As with every adult industry event I learn more about myself than the adult stars I go to research and study. This specific Thursday night in Hollywood with the walk of fame stars on the sidewalks, the fresh spring air mixed with the smell of marijuana, and my “Entitled Writer” shirt on I realized I may be an adult industry journalist, but I will always be on the outside looking in. My roots maybe in the adult industry, but I never made the leap to in front of the camera and onto film. This is a fine line that makes a world of difference within adult industry niches. How far is one willing to take the adult industry to get fame, fortune, and a career they can retire off of in such a taboo manner? The envelope will continue to be pushed with the test of time, but let us take a moment to celebrate all the individuals who make their career out of pushing the envelope. Without these people we as a society would be lost!

FITNESS: Booty Goals

Hey my sweaty bunnies its me your tiny trainer ready to kick some butt. We are going to get those quads burning and those glutes twerking. Let’s get startd with standing leg curls; 3 sets of 15. Keep the tempo slow; up slow 3 count then down slow for a 3 count. Superset with long stride lunges, also 15 reps. After you are done find a stepper (the long grey ones you can stack). Time for side step overs with a nice squat down. Let’s do 3 sets of 20 on each leg. Now, let’s test your balance! Place the stepper long ways and put one foot in the middle. The other foot is going to be crossed over behind you (you will look like you’re in a curtsy lunge). Apply weight to the front leg and lift the back leg straight up and over the stepper. You should feel this exercise in your quadriceps and glute. Please do 3 sets of 15 each leg and keep that back leg as straight as possible when crossing cover. Also, try not to bounce. How are you guys doing? Grab some water if needed. Time to squat like it’s hot. Grab a barbell because we will be doing front squats. If you can lift heavy head to the squat rack. Ok, you will be crossing your arms (parallel to the shoulder) with the bar on top of your front deltoid (shoulder). Face feet forward and a little wider than shoulder width apart. Head up, back straight and chest up. Concentrate on lowering with control then squeezing the glutes when standing back up. Time to do 3 sets of 15 with a superset of 10 pulses. Last exercise is a back lunge touching the ground with a knee up hop following. Finish up with 3 sets of 20. You are finished my toned up beauties. Get some amino and protein in. If you did this fasted then get a meal down. Don’t forget to take the neccessary supplements to repair, replenish and refuel the body.

Cocktail Corner - Gin

Hello everyone, and welcome back to another month of Cocktail Corner. I hope that everyone had a fun Cinco de Drinko – I mean, Cinco de Mayo – and that your Memorial Day weekend was full of adventurous, but safe, fun. I know I didn’t touch on it last month, but I hope that everyone remembered to pay their respects to those who served our country in the military. Because Memorial Day weekend has become such a party-time event, many of these brave people are overlooked for the sacrifice that they made; and really, Memorial Day is truly about remembering and honoring those people who, in some cases, gave their all so that we could have a party weekend – safe from outside threats. Okay, enough of the somber. So Brooke, Amy and I were all enjoying a cocktail at one of those speak-easy, craft cocktail joints – because that’s what we bartenders do – when I noticed this really hot chick order a gin and tonic. When I pointed it out to Brooke and Amy, they were totally surprised that any girl would drink gin – especially since neither one of them like it. Brooke and Amy both said that they’d never heard of Plymouth, and after telling them about it, I realized that there are probably a lot of people that don’t know about the different brands of gin on the market. So since I helped out all those vodka drinkers back in April, I thought that a few words about some of the better-known gins available on the market would help some of you make a more informed decision. Beefeater (U.K.) ... A standard London Dry made from a combination nine different botanicals, whose name refers to the Yeoman Warders – the ceremonial guards of the London Tower; first created and produced by James Burrough in 1876. Bombay (U.K.) ... Considered by some to be a well gin (residing in the speed rack), this is a classic London Dry made from a balance of eight different botanicals; using a recipe that dates from 1761, it was first commercially produced in 1895. Hendrick’s (Scotland) ... A small-batch creation of eleven different botanicals that are infused with specially selected cucumbers, and rose petals from Bulgarian Rosa Damascena; it was first produced in 1999. Junipero (U.S.) ... This is a small-batch, atypical London Dry made from a blend of eleven different botanicals in a copper pot still; first produced in San Francisco by Anchor Distilling Co. in 1995. Nolet’s (Holland) ... Made in small batches in copper pot stills, and distilled from a proprietary blend of botanicals that are infused with peach, raspberry, and Turkish rose; made in the same distillery as Ketel One vodka. Ransom (U.S.) ... This is a re-creation of an Old Tom style – which was the dominant type of gin consumed in the U.S. prior to Prohibition; made from the usual potpourri of botanicals, and infused with a liquid malt of barley, it was first produced in 2009. Plymouth (U.K.) ... Made from a larger proportion of root ingredients, making it less sharp and pungent than a London Dry; produced since 1793, it is a Protected Geographical Indication, which pertains to gin distilled in Plymouth, England. Sapphire (U.K.) ... An atypical London Dry made from ten different botanicals, using a Vapor Infusion Process; considered by many to be a vodka drinker’s gin due to its smoothness and approachability, it was first produced in 1987. Boodles (U.K.) ... A classic London Dry made from nine different botanicals in a vacuum still, which allows it to retain more of the botanical flavors; the only gin to contain nutmeg, rosemary, and sage, as well as having no citrus ingredients; named after the famed Boodles Gentleman’s Club in London, it was first produced in 1845. Tanqueray (U.K.) ... A standard London Dry style made from a proprietary blend of botanicals; the highest selling gin in North America, it was first created and produced by namesake, Charles Tanqueray in 1830. As anyone can easily see, there’s a good amount of gins on the market – though not nearly as many as vodka. But what’s most important is the variation in their flavor profiles, which creates different taste experiences. It’s this wide range of botanicals, in varying degrees, that sets the different brands apart, and makes for some interesting flavor nuances in cocktails – especially in a Martini; about which I’d like to make a point ... A Martini is a specific cocktail made with gin. It’s not a generic catch-all for cocktails served in stemmed glassware – nor is it a vodka drink. From its earliest inception, the Martini was, is, and always will be a gin drink ... Thank you. Okay, now that that’s off my chest, just know that gin is a really great spirit that not only tastes good, but is pretty versatile also; it blends really well with other ingredients to create some tasty cocktails. And if you’ve never tasted gin before, you should do yourself a favor by drinking a cocktail or two on a hot summer day – especially a refreshing gin and tonic. Now if you’ll excuse me, Brooke and Amy just came by in their swimsuits (yowzah!) and said they want to try some gin drinks while lounging poolside. In the meantime, try having a gin cocktail on a hot summer evening – or by the pool – and you just might find that you like it. So until next month ... CHEERS!

The Qualities of a Fierce Gentleman: REDUX

Two years ago – in our August, 2015 issue – we introduced you to the concept known as a Fierce Gentleman. It was an extremely novel concept at the time, but we received a lot of positive feedback, and over the years have fielded quite a few questions from you about what it means to be a Fierce Gentleman. On the surface, the words fierce and gentleman mean someone who is a combination of being intense, vigorous, determined, strong, independent, courteous, gracious, and honorable. But beneath this, there is a much deeper meaning – and purpose – to being a Fierce Gentleman, which can actually be found in an official Manifesto. This Manifesto belongs to an organization, founded by Andrew Long, whose singular purpose is to help anyone interested in becoming a Fierce Gentleman. There motto – ‘A Better Sort of Gentleman’ – is a goal apparently achieved by adhering to a set of principles set forth in their Manifesto; those principles, in turn, set forth the clearly discernible attributes and characteristics inherent in recognizing and becoming this different type of Gentleman. So in the interest of helping anyone wanting to know more about becoming a part of this new “culture of masculinity,” we once again offer you the salient characteristics of being a Fierce Gentleman (hereafter abbreviated as F.G.). First This is a type of man that takes care of his appearance – from the physical to the sartorial. An F.G. works to keep his physique in a fit and healthy condition, because he truly understands the principle that his body is the temple for his soul. And his manner of dress is an extension of this, as it cultivates and enhances a personal style of overall self-expression that reflects his attitude to everyone who comes across his path. Such a discipline means an F.G. never deviates from the excellence he has established for himself – consistently maintaining an appearance that is poised for success. Second This is a type of individual who has learned to cultivate his inner wisdom, and, more importantly, has learned to follow it. Whether the F.G. views this inner wisdom as the Divine Being or Intuition or any other name is unimportant; the label makes no difference, because the essence of what he has achieved is absorbed throughout his being, and with an aura of palpable serenity, is expressed with every thought, word, and action. This mindset allows the F.G. to fully realize and use his innate creativity, which lends him an inexhaustible energy to pursue his most fervent goals and passions. Third This is a man who understands that life is greater than himself – which means that he is consistently helpful, polite, considerate, and, most important, chivalrous. This is because an F.G. realizes that all things in life are meaningless without a deeper conviction. To that end, the F.G. pursues a path of service to and for others, with the understanding that his efforts in helping those around him will eventually lead to success. And there is no false modesty in his approach, because he knows that this is nothing more than a passive ego-gratification that will ultimately doom him to failure. This sort of understanding is immeasurable, because it gives the F.G. a tenured strength that can only be achieved through living by the courage of his convictions. Fourth This is an individual who is firmly resolute in all areas of his life – with an unfaltering belief in himself. An F.G. sets the tone for his life by always being available and accommodating, but he is not pushover, and is never taken for granted. Since he lives and plays on the edge of his own terms, his awareness of what he can and cannot do keeps him from exceeding his own limits. So though he has chosen a path of service to and for others, he is comfortable with saying “No” to requests that are beyond his scope or to expectations that seem unreasonable. It is this unwavering acuity of thought and action that allows the F.G. to maintain the equilibrium essential to his integrity. Fifth This individual of a man never ceases to evolve – physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually, financially, and socially. He understands that while still waters run deep, they invariably become stagnant, so he does not limit his freedom of movement by remaining self-contained. He seeks advice, solicits opinions, and enlists aid to achieve his desired goal, because he believes his energy should always be utilized in a focused manner. Such a pointed use of his energy allows the F.G. to achieve infinitely more in less time, providing him the essential measure of an accomplished presence. So there you have – once again – the attributes and characteristics of what constitutes a Fierce Gentleman. Of course, many of these are also present in the average gentleman, but to have all of them fully developed in one individual is what makes an F. G. And while these attributes and characteristics are those belonging to a more enlightened man, make no mistake about the fact that an F.G. is not a person of milquetoast nature; in fact, a gentleman becomes fierce through the strength of his will commanding himself to be a better sort of person. This is an aura of such unmistakable energy that when encountering a Fierce Gentleman, the tenacity of his nature is never brought into question. And though we barely touched on the traditional ways of the gentleman – opening doors for women, holding their seats, and standing when greeting them – these are every bit the part of being an F. G. as well. But even these behaviors are enhanced, because the F.G. performs these acts not from a position of supplication or polite respect, but from the viewpoint of a woman being a cherished equal. In essence, the Fierce Gentleman lives his life with a demeanor that inspires people around him – both men and women. With that said, the true essence of being a Fierce Gentleman is best exemplified through a lifestyle being promulgated by a generation of men wanting to make and live in a better world – for themselves and others. These are men who are not sitting idly by waiting for society to effect a change; rather, they are actively taking matters into their own hands. These are men who are responsible for their own actions, and in taking command of their lives through the process of becoming a Fierce Gentleman, they hope to inspire others to follow their example. Personally, we can only commend and applaud these gentlemen for committing to such a bold action, and we trust that you believe the same ... You can learn more about becoming a Fierce gentleman by going to www.fiercegentleman.com, and reading their Manifesto.

WHAT HAS IMPACTED YOUR SEX LIFE?

By Ina “Laughing Winds” Mlekush M.A. M.F.C.C Sex Counselor A.A.S.E.C.T. Certified As a marriage and sex counselor I help many couples challenge their first education around sex and intimacy. It is the religious beliefs, cultural indoctrination and parental values that have impacted many adults up through their senior years. They have never questioned the right or wrong of what they were taught. Is oral sex good or dirty? Is masturbation natural or a sin? Does a high sex drive mean there is something wrong with the partner? Is pornography seen as something disgusting and grounds for a divorce if you are caught watching and self-pleasuring? All of these topics and more are issues that couples are grappling with, destroying an otherwise happy relationship. Have you stopped having sex for months at a time? Was it due to an argument, your partner withholding, low libido which can come with age but not always? I just turned 69 and am more sexual then I have ever been. Every time you bring up of the topic of sex, love making, kissing or touching are you shut down by your partner? Do you feel rejected by your partner? Do you know if you are a good lover or kisser? Can you give or receive with equal passion and enjoyment? Are you accused of being a sex addict? Here is a bit of news to help you. The position on Sex Addiction from AASECT (founded in 1967) the American Association of Sexual Educators, Counselors and Therapist. They are the oldest organization in the US that certifies outside a university. AASECT recognizes that people may experience significant physical, psychological, spiritual and sexual health consequences related to their sexual urges, thoughts or behaviors. AASECT recommends that its members utilize models that do not unduly pathologize consensual sexual behaviors. AASECT 1) does not find sufficient empirical evidence to support the classifications of sex addiction or porn addiction as a mental health disorder and 2) does not find the sexual addiction training and treatment methods and educational pedagogies to be adequately informed by accurate human sexuality knowledge. Therefore, it is the position of AASECT that linking problems related to sexual urges, thoughts or behaviors to a porn/sexual addiction process cannot be advanced by AASECT as a standard of practice for sexuality education, delivery, counseling or therapy. Your sex education or lack of it, your upbringing, or how dysfunctional your home life was, all attribute to your sex life now. Your first sexual experiences, if they were positive or negative, have a huge impact on your genital sense of self. Religion has done much damage to the human psyche in terms of not honoring the beauty of the physical body and its ability to be orgasmic and self-healing. Humans can enjoy the passion and sacredness of love making or sex unrelated to the procreation of the species. Animals procreate on a set biological schedule; humans can make love 365 days of the year and enjoy it. Most animals have painful mating practices with no male mons at the tip of the penis for pleasure. The male has more of an arrow with no head as the human anatomy looks. Female animals only mate during their estrous cycles. They have no clitoris, g-spot or erogenous zones. Female animals mate when they are “in heat”. In contrast, females of species with menstrual cycles (humans) can be sexually active at any time in their cycle, even when they are not about to ovulate. The earliest use in English of “frenzied passion” was in 1900. It was first used to describe “rut in animals, heat”. Note, there are a few mammal species that do have sex for the pleasure of it. The Bonobo monkey is one and the dolphin is in a orgasmic brain wave continuously . The pertinent questions here is HOW can you change a life time of misinformation, religious indoctrination, stubbornness, refusal to educate oneself and the challenge of a lifetimes of “ beliefs”. Some people would rather get divorced or take their beliefs to the grave rather than discover they have been living a life based on lies and misinformation. This is a blow to the deepest part of our psyche. This is why people can work on their personal self-growth emotionally, mentally, physically even spiritually. But when it comes to learning about the beauty and power of sacred sexuality, the line is drawn. HOW ARE YOU going to proceed with creating a healthy sex life that expresses the freedom Great Spirit God gave you? Free will is something that one needs to implement at home; respecting each other’s needs and desires to grow and discover the beauty of the human experience which includes being Sexually Free & Responsible.   Ina “Laughing Winds” Mlekush Marriage & Sex Counselor a.a.c.e.c.t. certified Office 623 465-9151 Ina@TalktoIna.com Facebook.com/TalktoIna CALL ME
