  • Friends with benefits

    The thought of occasionally or frequently meeting up with someone for consensual sex void of emotional involvement might sound salacious to many. However, friends with benefits (FWB) as such an arrangement is called, is not for everyone. There is another term for such an arrangement called, “F Buddies” and I can assure you that the “F” does not stand for friends. If you are considering having a FWB arrangement or having someone as your F Buddy there are some rules you should be aware of before deciding if it’s for you. Read More »

  • Re-igNIting Her Fire

    Q: My husband and I used to have sex a couple of times per week. Then about four years ago, I stated to lose interest. We both figured it was due to stress. Unfortunately, I’ve gone from being uninterested to despising the idea and act of sex. For about a year and a half, whenever my husband wanted to have sex, I’d do it, as I’d always read that if you just do it, you’ll get in the mood as you go along. But that didn’t happen with me. It got to the point where during the act, I’d get so sad and frustrated about not wanting to do it that I’d cry quietly as we finished. Read More »

  • Can your man be stolen?

    Perhaps you should stop saying that another woman stole your man or you should stop believing that another woman stole your man. Until I’ve read a news caption similar to, “Woman steals man from his woman at gunpoint”, I’m going to stick to my very strong conviction that men don’t get stolen, they leave—voluntarily. Okay, let’s say that these men have indeed been stolen. Of these stolen men, how many have made frantic phone calls back to their women asking to be rescued or begging to get law enforcement involved? Read More »

  • Dealing with bullying as an adult

    When we hear the word bully, we tend to think of the big kid on the playground using his considerable size to dominate or intimidate those smaller than him. We think of snacks or lunch money being taken away in school or name-calling, hitting and other actions being performed by one child against another.
