Sexual Attraction-Indulge yourself in the Pleasures of the flesh


What internet pornography did to one teenager’s life

Young Andrew was only eight years old when he first viewed online pornography, but even then he knew there was no going back.

“I was sort of shocked – but I was fascinated by it as well,” the 23-year-old (who did not want his surname published) recalls of the hardcore film he watched on a computer at a friend’s house.

“It just seemed so real. I’d never really seen people naked before and here they were naked and doing things to each other … I knew I could never tell my parents, but once I first saw it I knew there was no going back.”

By the time Andrew was 14 watching porn had become his favourite past-time, constantly searching for something new on the internet which would give him a bigger high.

He gave up playing footy and stopped seeing his mates, preferring to stay up all night watching pornography instead. To make the porn feel more real he would seek out women on chat sites to act out scenarios with him.

“I couldn’t get up in the morning, and couldn’t concentrate in school,” Andrew explains. “All I was thinking about was getting back into a chat room or something like that.”

Andrew’s parents grew so worried about their lethargic son that they took him to the doctor for blood tests, convinced he had glandular fever. They still have no idea what was really affecting him.

Andrew’s pornography habit became so bad in his late teens that it started to damage his ability to have relationships with girls in real life. “I used to ask girls to do things and get off on that, rather than enjoying the pleasure of sex.” Eventually he couldn’t get aroused by girls anymore.

Therapist Hugh Martin, who specialises in helping men break their pornography habit, said Andrew’s story was typical of many of his clients. A recovering pornography addict himself, Mr Martin said most users had low self-esteem, were highly critical of themselves and lacked an emotional connection to their parents.

He believes the internet has made pornography much more problematic than it was in the past, and far more addictive than drugs or alcohol. “It makes it very real, very available, and very affordable. You get very physically and mentally engaged with the content.” He said extreme practices like bestiality and gang rape had become mainstream thanks to the internet.

Experts are growing increasingly concerned that the widespread use of online pornography among adolescents is skewing expectations about sex and relationships, especially as it does not depict any concept of consent. They say users find it hard to distinguish between what they see in pornography and what happens in real life.

“When you’re dealing with children looking at it, highly vulnerable people without any understanding or guidance, it becomes very dangerous,” Mr Martin said. Boys aged 14-17 are the most frequent underage consumers of pornographic material.

In therapy sessions Mr Martin helps clients understand their pornography use is a symptom of a deeper problem. They then work to resolve the “real” problem in their lives, and identify what they seek from porn such as stress relief, a self-esteem boost or reducing their anxiety. Mr Martin helps his clients understand their porn triggers, and find healthy alternatives that give them better highs, like playing sport.

Andrew says he suffers from low self-esteem, depression and anxiety, and that watching porn gave him a sense of power. “I’ve always felt pretty powerless because of being bullied pretty badly.” Yet the guilt and shame he felt about his porn use ultimately made him feel even worse.

“In the moment I did feel nice but it was afterwards that I felt bad about myself. The feeling of feeling bad only seemed to get worse which is one of the reasons I wanted help.”

It is only through therapy that Andrew has been able to break his addiction in the last year, and focus instead on his relationship with his girlfriend. He is now studying to be a youth worker.

“Once I started to deal with things like my low self-esteem, anxiety and self-loathing I could start to work towards what I really wanted for myself,” he says. “I had nothing to lose and I feel like I gained my self back.”

These 12 Thing Will Happen When You Make Love To Your Partner Daily

sexy lady paet body pic image www.club-libido.com

Are you stressed? Struggling to sleep? Turns out there are a number of ailments that can be cured simply by having sex regularly. Here are twelve reasons why you and your partner should be having sex daily!

1. Sex Reduces Stress.

If youve had a long day at work or youre simply feeling a little overwhelmed, then sex will help you relax and reduce your stress levels! During sex our bodies produce dopamine, endorphins and oxytocin which together help us to de-stress, increases our natural happiness levels and enhances desire.

2. Sex Is An Enjoyable Exercise.

When faced with the word workout many of us will recoil in horror, unless of course that workout involves sex. Throughout sex our bodies are continually experiencing physiological changes that are consistent with an exercise routine. Our breathing rates rise which in turn burns calories, whichmeans that if you have sex just three times a week you can burn around 7,500 calories a year. Thats the same as running 75 miles!

3. Sex Helps YourImmune System.

Researchers at Wilkes University in Pennsylvania found that their students who stated they had sex at least twice a week had higher levels of particular antibodies than those who had no sex at all.During sex, antigens like immunoglobulin A are released which are proven to fight the common cold and even flu! Even more good news: the more frequently you engage in sex the more antigens will be released and the healthier you will become

4. Sex Lowers Your Blood Pressure.

Even if its just a quickie, some forms of physical contact can improve your blood pressure significantly. A study conducted by the University of Paisley found that sex reduces diastolic blood pressure which is the bottom number on a blood pressure reading making us healthier all around!

5. Sex Helps a Healthy Heart.

As our bodies burn calories, it also improves our heart health. Researchers from the New England Research Institute found that men are 45% less likely to suffer from cardiovascular diseases if they have regular sex.

6. Sex Helps Pain Relief.

If youre experiencing aches, pains or migraines then sex may be a better form of pain relief than pills! Arthritis specialist Dr. George Erlich conducted a study on his patients and found that those who had sex often experienced significantly less pain than their counterparts who went without.

7. Sex Ensures Regular Periods.

If your periods are a bit erratic, it could be down to a stressful lifestyle. As mentioned previously, sex reduces stress and so will also have an impact on your menstrual cycle!

8. Sex Creates Powerful Pelvic Muscles.

As well as quads, back and core muscles, sex also works out your pelvic muscles! Is there a better way of building muscle? I dont think so! By creating stronger pelvic muscles you also benefit by having better orgasms according to the National Health Service (NHS).

9. Sex Reduces The Risk Of Cancer.

Particularly for men, regular sex reduces the chances of developing cancer. In an Australian studypublished the Journal of the American Medical Association, it was found that men who ejaculated at least 21 times a month were much less likely to suffer form prostate cancer.

10. Sex Makes YouSleep Well.

Like exercise, sex increases your heart rate which leads to relaxation. In addition to this, its common knowledge that male ejaculation leads to lethargy which can make men extremely sleepy after sex.

11. Sex Makes You Look 10 Years Younger.

Having sex three times a week can apparently make you appear 10 years younger than your real age! In his book Secrets of the Superyoung, Scottish researcher and clinical neuropsychologist at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital, David Weeks states: Its good for you to have good sex. What more incentive do you need?

12. Sex Lengthens Your Life.

The ultimate culmination of all of these wonderful, positive effects regular sex has on our health and minds is that we will add years to our life spans. In fact, a study published in the British Medical Journal revealed that male participants who had sex regularly lived twice as long as those who rarely got any action!

So there you have it: there are officially no downsides to having sex regularly, so get at it!

Woman quits her job to breastfeed her boyfriend

Jennifer Mulford from Atlanta dry-feeds her partner Brad Leeson couple image www.club-libido.com

SHE hasn’t breastfed for 20 years but that hasn’t stopped this woman from breastfeeding her boyfriend as part of their Adult Breastfeeding Relationship (ABR).

The Sun reports Jennifer Mulford from Atlanta “dry-feeds” her partner Brad Leeson, 36, every two hours.

Because she hasn’t breastfed in over 20 years, Ms Mulford has to trick her body into producing milk by dry-feeding and hand pumping regularly.

“I’ve taken a break from my job because I want to devote everything to making this work,” she said.

The bartender first came across ABR on a website.

“When I read about the pure joy it brought others, I was desperate to seek out a partner to share an emotional bond with.”

At the time she was a single mum so she started searching for men open to the idea of adult breastfeeding.

“I used dating sites, put messages on ABR forums and even put an advert on Craigslist, but I drew a blank. I started to think I’d never get to try adult breastfeeding.”

One night she was talking to Mr Leeson, an old boyfriend from school, and mentioned the idea.

“We were talking and Brad told me he had a thing for big-breasted women, and that size had always been a factor in his relationships.

“I thought it was the perfect time to bring up adult breastfeeding – and see if he’d be interested.”

She said it was like a light switch “flicked in his head”, she could tell he was curious and excited.

“At that moment I knew that I had a partner for life. We both wanted the same thing out of the relationship – a magical bond that only breastfeeding can achieve.”

The couple feed every two hours.

If Mr Leeson is out Ms Mulford uses a pump or hand-pumps. At night they set an alarm for “night feeds”.

“Nights have been a struggle because Brad sleeps so peacefully but we manage to cope – until he falls asleep latched onto me, which is beautiful,” she said.

She also said it has been tricky to get through nursing sessions without having sex.

“It’s been difficult to distinguish the difference between nurturing and sex.

“Although it’s so beautiful and peaceful it’s also erotic. It’s been hard to get through the first few nursing sessions without being tempted to have sex, but each time it’s getting easier,” Ms Mulford said.

Because Ms Mulford doesn’t have any milk to feed Mr Leeson, she also takes herbal pills and tea to imitate female hormones and increase or maintain milk supply.

Ms Mulford said Mr Leeson, a self-confessed gym buff, is excited about the health benefits of breast milk.

“Brad goes to the gym because it makes him feel good about himself knowing he is shape and living a healthy lifestyle. He also tells me all the time that he does it for me because he wants other women to feel jealous of what I have,” she said.

The couple say nursing is going well.

Ms Mulford expects it will take two months for her milk to come in.

She said Mr Leeson would like her to feed him in public but it is very private act for her.

“I’ll never say never but I love the time we spend nursing alone. It’s our time away from the rest of the world and I look forward to every feed.

“I can come home from a very stressful day and seconds after Brad latching on I feel a sense of peace and calm. For that time I feel like we become one. I have yet to feel anything more comforting.

“It’s a bond that no one can come between.”

They are hoping to get married in the future but say they won’t have any children together as they both have kids from previous relationships.

The couple also plan to breastfeed as long as they can.

“This is a lifestyle we have chosen. We look forward to years from now still needing and wanting each other.”

The real truth about quickies

casualpic3

Forget everything you’ve heard about quickies being a pale imitation of “real” sex. Research shows that sex in any quantity or duration is healthy for your sex life and your sex drive. Most people tend to think of quickies as a substitute for passionate, romantic lovemaking. Many sex therapists, however, disagree with this view and encourage couples to incorporate quickies into their sex lives. Not as the mainstay of one’s sex life, but certainly as added variety, because there are some definite benefits to even a speedy encounter.

Couples today list lack of desire, time, fatigue, pressure and stress as five of the biggest obstacles to a fulfilling sex life. They don’t have romantic weekend getaways every month, don’t come home to candle-lit bedrooms with rose petals scattered over the bed, and don’t have screaming orgasms as they make love for the fourth time that night.

Sometimes it’s a bit like this: “Do you want to?”, “Well, I suppose so”, followed by a half-hearted effort, before rolling over for much-needed sleep. This type of scenario calls for a “quickie fix”, and fast. Quickies work in part because sexual activity helps couples feel connected. Couples who feel sexually connected are more likely to get along outside the bedroom.

They communicate more effectively, feel more energised, are more affectionate and argue less. Lack of desire is still the leading sexual problem among women. Studies in the US have shown a direct link between engaging in sex and sexual desire. Sexual intercourse raises hormone levels in both men and women, which increases the brain chemicals associated with desire. The more often you have sex, the stronger your desire for sex becomes.

Quickies are also excellent for reintroducing passion into a sex life that has been long neglected. Many couples have a hard time prioritising sex. By the time they get to sex, after everything else on their must-do lists, they can feel too tired or stressed to bother. Couples also feel pressure to make each session a long, passionate and intimate encounter, with incredible orgasms for both, preferably at the same time.

Sex therapists who advocate quickies certainly promote longer lovemaking filled with foreplay as a component of a healthy sex life, but they do encourage couples to be realistic. A few 10-minute quickies can do more for your sex drive than waiting for that fatigue-free, uninterrupted night to come along. The best of both worlds lies in the balance. Try a few quickies to help get to your end goal of a hot sex life with long lovemaking sessions. A fast approach could very well lead to more frequent sex, with fantastic foreplay and a lot more fun in the bedroom!

Sometimes speedy sex can spice things up in the bedroom.

Need a quick fix?

For each statement, give yourself one point for “No” and two points for “Yes”

  • I am too tired for sex.
  • Sex is saved for nighttime.
  • Generally I am too stressed for sex.
  • My sex life lacks spontaneity.
  • Sex outside the bedroom is unusual.
  • Romance takes too much energy.
  • I feel disconnected from my partner when we haven’t had sex in a week.
  • I’d rather read a book than have sex.
  • Sex requires too much scheduling to bother doing it more than twice a week.
  • Sex is often done in a standard position.
  • I have trouble relaxing.
  • I don’t have time for a great sex life.

12-15 points: You place sex as a high priority and make time in your life for varied sexual expression. Quickies can be incorporated into your life, not as a remedy, but for the extra thrill.

16-19 points: There is room for improvement in your sex life. You may wish to work on your time management and relaxation techniques with the use of the occasional quickie.

20-24 points: Your sex life could definitely use a quick fix. Quickies will liberate you to have fun with sex again. Learn to arrange your priorities so your sex life doesn’t suffer.

Man dies while having intercourse with sex worker and gets wheeled away with the woman still attached

WARNING: Disturbing.

BIZARRE footage appears to show an elderly man who died while making love to a sex worker — then being wheeled away with the woman still attached.

The strange clip shows paramedics removing an alleged dead body on a hospital stretcher, complete with a moving silhouette of a woman still on top.

The woman and the old man are both hidden under a blue blanket, with a crowd of people congregating to watch on in horror.

The video first appeared on the Chinese video sharing website Miaopai and was later shared on LiveLeak with the title: “Old man died while having sex with a prostitute”.

The bizarre incident is believed to have taken place in China, although the exact location remains unknown.

Strange … the bizarre incident is believed to have taken place in China, although the exact location remains unknown.

Dying during sex is uncommon, however it is not unheard of and it can occur because of an increased strain on the heart while in the throes of passion.

The strain can lead to a sudden cardiovascular attack — and this is more common among men.

It is also possible to become ‘stuck’ to someone during a fumble. This rare event is known as ‘penis captivus’, which can occur when vaginal muscles clamp down too firmly.

Combining this with the fact that when a penis is in the vagina it becomes increasingly swollen, becoming stuck becomes even easier.

Caught on camera … the feet of the corpse and what appears to be the woman’s legs.

Dr John Dean, a UK-based sexual physician, told the BBC: “The muscles of the woman’s pelvic floor contract rhythmically at orgasm. While those muscles contract the penis becomes stuck and further engorged.”

It is only once the vaginal muscles relax, causing the blood to flow out of the penis, that it can be withdrawn.

It is not yet known what happened to this particular pair — or how they were separated.

“Sex shop” Santa ad breached ASB code SEE SEXY SANTA ADVERT ON VIDEO HERE

honey birdette_hot blonde & tied up santa image www.club-libido.com

Complaints over an ad showing “bound and gagged” Santa Claus for lingerie brand Honey Birdette have been upheld by the Advertising Standards Bureau (ASB) for showing sexual violence.

The two poster ads were shown in Honey Birdette stores in Westfield shopping centres. One showed a woman in red lingerie standing over a Santa Clause figure on the ground, the other showed a woman standing over a gagged Santa, with the words ‘Silent Night’ over the top.

However the ad drew a spate of complaints for sexuality, objectification and violence.

One complainant noted: “The ad uses an easily recognisable childhood icon – Santa Claus – to draw attention to advertising for a sex shop which masquerades as a high end lingerie store.

“Santa is bound and gagged in a somewhat demeaning activity (bondage), which is displayed at my children’s eye-level.”

“Children will naturally be attracted to the image of Santa Clause and especially as he seems to have fallen over. It could create concern for them…the connection between Santa and sex is so wrong.”

While the ASB dismissed concerns that the poster was objectifying the woman in the images, it did uphold complaints over the use of violence.

“The board noted that Santa is bound and gagged and that this is a depiction of violence,” the ASB says in its determination.

“The majority of the board also considered that the image of Santa bound and tied in conjunction with the depiction of the woman in her lingerie standing over him while he is bound could be seen by people as suggestive of sexual violence and the expression on Santa’s face would appear to strengthen this suggestion.”

In response, Honey Birdette noted that the signage as been removed following the Christmas period but that it did experience its “strongest sales ever”.

“We actually refute the claim that “the image is extremely degrading to women as the woman is placed as a sexualised object” – perhaps the complaint came from someone who did not understand that we sell lingerie,” Honey Birdette says in the statement.

“In order to market and advertise lingerie, we need to show a model wearing it, however we do this in a way that empowers women rather than demean or degrade them.”

The Strange, Surprising History Of The Vibrator

In the U.S. alone, the vibrator is a billion dollar industry. But how long have they really been around, and who invented them?

vibrator old newspaper advert image www.club-libido.com

An early vibrator ad. Image Source: Wikipedia

A sex toy staple, the rise of the vibrator has always been linked to the hysteria treatments of Victorian England. But the Victorians were hardly the first to employ “pelvic massage” as a medical treatment. As it happens, the history of the vibrator is much longer than that:

The Vibrator’s Ancient Origins

The term hysteria — from the Greek word for uterus, hysteros — originated some 2,500 years ago and described a triad of symptoms experienced by women: fatigue, nervousness and depression. Hippocrates believed that these symptoms were caused by a “wandering uterus,” and given the science of the time, it was as logical an assumption as anything else. Questionable anatomy aside, dildos apparently appeared as an answer to this set of problems, having been found in places dating back to this period. In Ancient Egypt, legend has it that Cleopatra filled a hollowed out gourd with bees and used it for clitoral stimulation. It’s likely just an urban legend, though: she probably just used dildos, like every other woman of her time.

From Medieval times throughout the Renaissance, village doctors viewed hysteria as a sign of sexual deprivation, and thus encouraged married hysteria sufferers to engage in rigorous sex to cure their ails. In fact, for much of history, the pursuit of the female orgasm was more important than we’ve been led to believe: even in the Victorian era, sex guides touted the female orgasm as essential to pregnancy. If a man wanted an heir, the female orgasm, and foreplay, were essential.

Vibrators In The Victoria Era

The Victorians did coin a term for the orgasm: hysterical paroxysm. The clinical definition added a degree of scientific legitimacy to the experience, but was concurrent with a belief that masturbation was sinful and even harmful (although a few doctors conceded that it might have been okay for women on their periods). If a “hysterical” woman was unmarried and didn’t have the option or interest in “rigorous sexual intercourse,” she still had to achieve that curative hysterical paroxysm somehow.

At first, midwives and medical doctors — predominantly men at the time — manually massaged a woman’s vulva and clitoral region in order for the woman to experience a “hysterical paroxysm.” The intended effect did wear off, meaning that women would come back for more treatment — and after a while, physicians ran into a significant challenge: their hands and wrists were getting tired and, in some cases, probably bordering on repetitive motion injuries like tendonitis.

The necessity for an automated massager begat the first of many automatic “vibrators”: more specifically, a rather large, steam-powered one that practically took up an entire room and was known as “The Manipulator.” Perhaps the most well-known iteration, in part because of the major motion picture that dramatized the story, is Dr. Joseph Mortimer Granville’s 1880 invention of the first electric vibrator. Granville never meant to treat “hysterics” with his device; rather, he meant for it to treat musculoskeletal pain in men. Nevertheless, these devices reduced the time it took for women to achieve her paroxysm — helpful as at the time many doctors feared a “hysteria” epidemic — and soon became smaller and more portable, opening up the door for new innovations by actors outside the medical field.

The Modern Vibrator

In a 2012 interview with The Daily Beast, sex historian Dr. Rachel Maines said that by 1899, $5 battery-powered vibrators appeared in Sears catalogs as household appliances, adding that, “After a while, patients realized that if they could order one from Sears for $5, why should they go to the doctor for $2 to $3 a visit?”

By the early 20th century, women had the ability to treat their “hysteria” independently and at home, eliminating the need for office visits and saving the wrists of their grumbling doctors. The advertisements in Sears catalogs at the time called vibrators “aids that every woman appreciates.”

Once vibrators became widely available, the scope of their intended use broadened. In the early 1920s, they started popping up in brothels and later, porn films. By 1952, the the American Medical Association dropped the term “hysteria” from its diagnostic terminology. The term may have exited the lexicon, but the attitude toward women’s health and the suppression of their sexual needs continued: Once it was apparent that vibrators had an explicitly sexual connotation, they disappeared from the consumer market almost as quickly as they’d appeared.

The 1970s sexual revolution ushered in a more open approach to the vibrator, most notably with the famous Hitachi Magic Wand, which hit the scene in 1973. The concept of objects created specifically for sexual use — particularly women’s sexual pleasure — succeeded through the evolving perception of women socially and politically. Even though sex toys had existed for centuries, they had mostly been used in secret. Now they were coming to the forefront, so to speak.

Old_Hitachi_Magic_Wand_box-image www.club-libido.com

Today, vibrators exist in just about every iteration you could possibly imagine, varying in shape, size, color and intensity. Babeland, one of the first websites devoted to their sale (in 1993), continues to be one of the most prolific sellers of sex toys to date.

One study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine found that over half of women they surveyed had used a vibrator — and hearkening back to its medical origins, linked the usage of sex toys to health-conscious behaviors such as regular gynecological exams.

Implanted ‘Sperm Switch’ Turns Mens’ Fertility On and Off

There aren’t many options for long-term birth control for men—other than a vasectomy (which can fail) the only solutions seemed to be RISUG (Reversible Inhibition of Sperm Under Guidance, or Vasalgel) which lasts ten years. A male birth control pill doesn’t seem to be nearing on the horizon, so for now men must use condoms or other “barrier” methods.

Thanks to German inventor Clemens Bimek, controlling male fertility may soon come as easily as flicking a switch inside the scrotum. His invention, the Bimek SLV, is a valve attached to the spermatic duct that regulates sperm cells’ flow. Patented back in 2000, the device is slated to undergo clinical trials beginning this year.

According to Bimek SLV, after a medical examination determines the potential recipient’s eligibility, only an outpatient surgery—lasting about half an hour—is required to implant the valve. It’s about the size of a gummy bear, and made almost entirely out of PEEK Optima, an implant material proven to be biocompatible and durable.

Operation involves a rocker switch to be turned on and off, which can be controlled trough the scrotum skin. And don’t worry, Bimek SLV provides answers to all sexual inquiries regarding the device’s implantation, and because I know you’re going to ask:

  • Its efficacy is about that of a vasectomy (0.1 on the pearl index.)
  • It shouldn’t impact the ability to gain and maintain an erection—if anything, the certainty should make it easier. Any issues with ED are best discussed with your partner or doctor.
  • Ejaculation should be normal. All that would change is a five percent reduction in ejaculatory fluid. (I doubt anyone would notice that.) Orgasm should also be achieved normally.
  • The SLV doesn’t protect against STDs—you’ll still need a condom for that.
  • The valve’s design enables sperm to exit the side of the spermatic duct when it’s closed, so semen blockage won’t occur. Sperm cells that “leak” from the valve are broken down by the immune system.
  • A security measure makes sure that the switch can’t open on its own.

Once the user decides to switch off his sperm flow, sperm remains present in ejaculatory fluid for about three months, or 30 ejaculations. A visit to a urologist is recommended after the grace period has ended to ensure that all sperm have left the building. Opening it is a different story: the company claims it is a safe assumption that the first ejaculation after opening the valve will contain sperm. There’s also apparently very little recovery time—only one day, according to Bimek SLV. However, men are encouraged to wait one week before resuming physical activity, including sex.

A valve that blocks sperm flow seems like a long-overdue invention; the concept is so simple. Granted, men might not be so eager to go under the knife when other birth control methods would be sufficient; but this is the first invention of its kind that gives men the ability to control whether or not they are fertile. It can benefit single and married men alike in either protection or the decision to start a family.

The only issue I see is convincing women that the implant works—men, feel free to use this as reference!
