Masturbation as Medicine - US News

Masturbation as Medicine - US News | iLife | Scoop.it
Self-pleasure is one way women can ignite their desires – and boost their physical and mental health.
Carol Mei-Lan Morikawa's insight:

Masturbation is a missing ingredient in your desire (and weight loss) plan. Well, not just masturbation, but anything that brings you sincere physical pleasure that also balances your hormones. Arousal and orgasm are most easily achieved through masturbation.

 

Orgasm helps the body release oxytocin, the *love and bonding* hormone. Oxytocin release lowers cortisol, the main stress hormone chronically-elevated in many women that can lead to stress eating and weight loss resistance. Higher levels of oxytocin make us happy and keep those emotionally-triggered food cravings for sugars, cheese and other 'happy foods' at bay.

 

You don’t need to be an expert or have your own personal red room of pain to find pleasure: Your own digits are ready to help you begin at home. Oxytocin levels are usually increased simply through the physical stimulation of the clitoris, vagina, cervix and breasts. So even if you don't reach climax, you'll still be releasing this powerful neurotransmitter.

 

Another way to get started? Daydream! Sexy daydreams release testosterone in women. So when you read erotic fiction or watch any kind of adult entertainment that excites you, your body will begin anticipating a sexual encounter, which naturally raises your libido. www.babeland.com and www.goodvibes.com (Good Vibrations is SFO-based; female owned and operated) have some great options for the desire seeker.

 

In my book, “Women, Food, And Desire,” I tell the story of a client who wasn't dating and wasn't masturbating. She had also been suffering tummy trouble for years, and worked a very stressful job. She was tired of the bloating, gas and the dreaded 'muffin top' that wouldn't budge. I took her to Babeland, a clean, well-lit place for sex toys, and we talked with a knowledgeable staff member who helped her pick out a vibrator. After a couple of weeks of self-exploration, she noticed a marked difference in her digestion. (And she certainly had a nice spring in her step.)

Kellyanne Conway is a Star

Kellyanne Conway is a Star | iLife | Scoop.it

She’s one of the only officials in The White House, other than President Donald J. Trump and Vice President Mike Pence to have Secret Service protection — which staffers receive at the special request of the president, who has famously referred to her as “my Kellyanne.” Kellyanne Conway is becoming less a supporting character than a bona fide Celebrity in her own right. She is simply more famous — more beloved by Trump fans and more hated by Trump detractors — than anyone in any comparable role in any previous White House

Stephen K. Bannon - Every day, 'it is going to be a fight' to deconstruct the administrative state. Donald John Trump - committed, going to deliver

Stephen K. Bannon - Every day, 'it is going to be a fight' to deconstruct the administrative state. Donald John Trump - committed, going to deliver | iLife | Scoop.it
'If you think they’re going to give you your country back without a fight, you are sadly mistaken; Every day, it is going to be a fight. They’re corporatist, globalist media that are adamantly opposed — adamantly opposed to an economic nationalist agenda like President Donald J. Trump has.'

 The administration is in an unending battle for “deconstruction of the administrative state.” Bannon dismisses the idea that Trump might moderate his positions or seek consensus with political opponents. The White House is digging in for a long period of conflict to transform Washington and upend the world order.

“That is what I’m proudest about Donald J. Trump. All the opportunities he had to waver off this, all the people who have come to him and said, ‘Oh, you’ve got to moderate’ — every day in the Oval Office, he tells Reince Preibus and I, ‘I committed this to the American people, I promised this when I ran, and I’m going to deliver on this."

 - Stephen K. Bannon

Bannon frames much of Trump’s agenda with the phrase, “deconstruction of the administrative state,” meaning the system of taxes, regulations and trade pacts that the president says have stymied economic growth and infringed upon U.S. sovereignty and that the post-World War II political and economic consensus is failing and should be replaced with a system that empowers ordinary people over coastal elites and international institutions.

At the core is a belief that “we’re a nation with an economy — not an economy just in some global marketplace with open borders, but we are a nation with a culture and a reason for being.”

Bannon repeatedly uses the phrase “economic nationalism” and posits that Trump’s withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement was “one of the most pivotal moments in modern American history.”

Nigel Farage, the British politician who led the successful Brexit movement in the United Kingdom to withdraw from the European Union, says Bannon has the right vision to reorder world powers. - “

"I’ve never met anyone in my life who has such focus and is so clear in the direction that he intends to go in; Steve is the person with an international perspective on all of this. He’s got a good feel for the direction that he wants to see across the West.”

Bannon Declares War On The Media: "You Are The Opposition; Keep Your Mouth Shut"

Bannon Declares War On The Media: "You Are The Opposition; Keep Your Mouth Shut" | iLife | Scoop.it
'The media here is the opposition party. They don't understand this country. They still do not understand why Donald J. Trump is the president of the United States. The media should be embarrassed and humiliated and keep its mouth shut and just listen for awhile.' 

‘The elite media got it dead wrong, 100% dead wrong,' (The election was) 'a humiliating defeat that they will never wash away, that will always be there. The mainstream media has not fired or terminated anyone associated with following our campaign. Look at the Twitter feeds of those people: they were outright activists of the Hillary Clinton campaign. That's why you have no power, You were humiliated.'

"You're the opposition party, Not the Democratic Party. You're the opposition party.

 - The media's the opposition party." - Stephen K. Bannon is Chief strategist to Donald J. Trump

Are fantasy sports just gambling?

Are fantasy sports just gambling? | iLife | Scoop.it
Chance can have a greater impact on outcomes when skill levels are well matched. In an Olympic sprint event, all participants are blazing fast, so a runner’s start or the lane they’re assigned to could mean the difference between winning and losing. Likewise, it’s tough to predict the victor between two chess grandmasters, but the outcome is rarely in doubt when one plays an amateur. - The very essence of chance versus skill in contests. Skill-based contests tend to exclude people who cannot succeed—to wit, it’s been years since I last played chess.

Chance games, on the other hand, pull the floodgates wide open (i.e. lotteries, bingo, roulette, slots, keno, baccarat, most casino machines and table games such as 21, 3 card, Chinese, Caribbean and crazy pineapple poker, Badacey, Baducy (but not Badugi)).

The persistent, enduring Mythology of SAW and the New Religion of John Kramer (JIGSAW). | iLife | Scoop.it

There's an unceasing wind that blows through this night, there's dust in my eyes, that blinds my sight A silence that speaks so much louder than words Of promises broken A man in black on a snow white horse  A pointless life has run its course . The red rimmed eyes, the tears still run As he fades into - the setting Sun

The sweet smell of a great sorrow lies over the land Plumes of smoke rise and merge into the leaden sky A man lies and dreams of green fields and rivers But awakes to a morning with no reason for waking He's haunted by the memory of a lost-paradise - In his youth or a dream, he can't be precise He's chained forever to a world that's departed It's not enough, it's not enough

One world, one soul Time pass, the river rolls And he talks to the river of lost love and dedication And silent replies that swirl invitation Flow dark and troubled to an oily sea A grim intimation of what is to be
