1. Relax. Know that tough times and challenges will be there. Don’t be irrational or frantic. Exercise patience.


2. Look back. What brought about the silent treatment? Something you said? Something you did or didn’t do? Misunderstanding?


3. Pray about it. Let God reveal to you how to go about it. Repent to God if you’ve done wrong. Pray that God makes your spouse’s heart moldable and receptive.


4. Apologize even if what you said was right. Apologize if how you said it came out wrongly. Love is not about proving who is wrong or right. What you need is for your spouse to warm up to you by you showing you are understanding. Say sorry as you give eye contact, but if you are being avoided, write a text or a letter, reach out.


5. Don’t over apologize. Do one good sincere apology then give your spouse time for the apology to sink in. Don’t nag.


6. Play music that calms and warms the heart. Play love songs, spiritual music in the house. Praise and worship God so that the presence of God feels the home. In the fullness of God there is fullness of joy.


7. Present yourself to your spouse, be around your spouse. Even if you two won’t talk, just be available.




8. Start light conversations. Don’t bring up the topic or tell your spouse to lighten up and stop acting cold. Attack will only make your spouse defensive.


9. Tell your spouse how your day has been even if you get cold or brief feedback. Your spouse may be silent but you talk just like you used to. Be happy and smiling. Your warm demeanor is attractive.


10. Do for your spouse things he/she likes. Cook your spouse’s favorite meal, buy your spouse the movie he/she likes.


11. Give warm eye contacts.


12. Dress sexy in bed. Do something different in the bedroom. Go all out in arousing and pleasing your spouse. Make love, intimacy breaks down walls.


13. When your spouse is now more intimate with you, talk about the matter in depth, each giving their opinion without being judged. Talk about the root cause, how it feels. Tell your spouse it is difficult to deal with matters when you give each other silent treatment, but still telling your spouse you understand why he/she went silent.


14. Apologize once again. Forgive if wronged.


15. Agree on a way forward, how to deal with the issue in future.


16. Hug and kiss, cuddle, release. Say how much you need each other.


17. Pray for your marriage together that God will keep molding you two. Cover your marriage with prayer.


18. Make love, go back to loving, laugh, talk about other positive stuff. Wake up in the morning smiling.


19. Leave the matter in the past. It has been resolved. Move on.

When you feel you are the victim of unfaithfulness or something is amiss in your relationship, it is time to pay more attention to the phone behaviours of your partner.

 

Though, signs of cheating are different in every relationship but there are common threads you can look for.

 

These are seven secretive phone use behaviours of cheaters suggesting something is wrong. Cheaters tend to use their phones more frequently than before and to guard them as if their lives depend on it.

 

1. If he/she used to leave his/her phone out on the table for hours, or if he/she was the type of person who would leave the house and forget his/her phone all the time, but suddenly he/she and his/her phone are inseparable then something may be up.

 

2. If he/she never leaves his phone out anymore, panics when he/she can’t find his phone and doesn’t check his/her texts around you or just acts every shady around his/her phone, then you may have reason to worry.

 

3. If he/she suddenly put a password on his phone but never cared for privacy before, then something may be up.

 

4. If he/she steps out to take a phone call and comes back looking either upset, excited or apologetic, you may start to wonder who’s on the other line.

 

5. If you walk in when he’s/she’s on the phone and he/she abruptly ends the conversation, then he/she may be talking to another woman/man.

 

6. If he/she used to be diligent about answering his/her phone but you can go hours without getting in touch with him/her, then he/she may be spending that time with another woman/man.

 

7. If he/she shuts off his phone for hours and he/she never used to do that, it is not a good sign.

 

An expert has revealed how tight jeans as well as synthetic panties and leggings can hurt a woman's s*xual organ.

A Clinical Microbiologist, Tony Mbume, on Sunday advised females to stop wearing tight jeans, synthetic panties and leggings, to prevent vaginal infections.

 

According to him, most Nigerian females wear these synthetic pants, leggings and tight jeans in the name of fashion, without considering the health implications.

 

Dr Mbume, who works with CIAGIN Medical Laboratory, Oke-Afa, Isolo, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that synthetic wears caused the vagina to ‘overheat’, which could disrupt its ecosystem.

 

He said that underwears made of latex, nylon or polyester and synthetic materials could trap moisture and warmth, making the vagina vulnerable to infections.

 

“Synthetic panties can cause the vagina area to overheat and this can sometimes cause burning sores, itching or irritate the sensitive skin, as well as causing blisters.

“The friction caused by walking in tight pants and jeans can irritate the skin, resulting in the formation of blisters,’’ he said.

 

Dr Mbume said that vaginal burning and itching was usually accompanied by discharge and bad odour.

 

He further said that such infections could be dangerous if left untreated, as it might lead to infertility due to damage of the reproductive organs.

 

The microbiologist, however, recommended cotton underwear, to ventilate the vagina and eliminate infections, adding that wearing cotton underwear helped to keep the vagina free of excessive moisture and allows the area to breathe.

 

“Use cotton menstrual pads too. Cotton absorbs excess moisture and removes buildup heat from the area. It is the only materials that can become stronger when wet and is easily sterilised after use.

 

“Avoid sleeping with pants at night, to keep the vagina area dry throughout the night,’’ he said.

 

Dr Mbume said the vagina should be protected from any form of diseases, as it is a sacred and highly respected organ of God’s creation.

If you thought that the only benefit of sex was, well, pleasure, here's what a healthy sex life can do for you. 



 

The more benefits that have been attributed to having sex, the more beneficial reasons experts proffer on why you should have even more!  Because, besides the happy ending that comes with great sex, it turns out there are a whole bunch of other reasons you should be getting your kicks between the sheets and here they are …

1. It can make you look younger: Is this possibly the best thing you’ve ever heard?  Did you know that having regular sex can actually make you look seven years younger!?  Researchers found the human anti-ageing hormone DHEA soars to five times its normal level after an orgasm. So fling out your night creams and get cracking.

2. It can improve fertility: It might sound obvious but if you’re trying for a baby then the more sex you have, the more you increase your chance of getting a bun in the oven. Because the more sex a man has, the higher the quality of his sperm.  So, if you’re hoping for grade A swimmers, perhaps a morning, noon and night routine is just the job!

3. It boosts your immune system:  Next time you’re feeling sniffly, reaching for the tissues and having a hot bath, just remember that your cold/flu may have been caused by lack of regular romping. A regular amount of sex actually gives your immune system a welcome boost. In short, the more you’re having sex, the less likely you are to be struck down by illness.

4. It helps your heart: It’s no secret that a good bedroom session gets the blood pumping. But did you know it actually protests your heart in the long run?  Research has shown that having sex three times a week decreases the risk of heart attack by half.  In my eyes, that’s a pretty good reason to say sexually active!

5. It keeps you in shape:  A lot of people actually think this is a myth. I can’t imagine why, because at the end of the day, sex is a physical activity, just like going to the gym. So there’s no doubt that as much as you’re enjoying yourself, you’re actually burning calories in the process.  Better still, after sex, you can enjoy that bar of chocolate completely guilty free.

6. It’s good for period pains:  Sure you could take some paracetamol in the hope that it’ll knock your menstrual cramp on the head but, believe it or not, sex is a natural pain killer. Not only does a good romp help your muscles relax, it also releases endorphins – a natural pain reliever.

7. It works on wrinkles:  Among all the wonderful chemicals that are produced during sex, oestrogen is another absolute miracle worker.  Its biggest benefit is that it tightens and smoothens lines on the face. In other words, more sex equals less wrinkles.

8. It makes you more attractive: Okay, you’re not going to wake up in the morning looking like a supermodel.  But research has shown the more sex you have, the more attractive you are to the opposite sex. It’s all down to science.‘When you’re sexually active, your body releases more pheromones – the love chemical that attracts the men.

9. It can make you live longer:  Now this really does seem too good to be true, but the proof is in the pudding.  Apparently, if you’re having regular sex – more than twice a week, you can add up to eight years to your life expectancy.

10. It can unblock your nose!:  This may seem a little strange but it’s true!  As well as all the other benefits, sex is also a natural anti-histamine. So next time the pollen count is sky high, ease those itching eyes by getting a good romp!  So why are you still reading this?

Now that Fanny Sex Dolls could be the rage …

According to a recent news report, “A brothel has just forked out 6,000 Pounds (about three million Naira) for its second `virtual sex doll’ after the original one had become MORE popular among punters than the real women!”  When images of these life-like naked dolls first surfaced, no one expected the fad to catch on as it has today and some men are paying for sex with a doll than with women!  It’s a frightening thought but just how virtually real are these things?  And why on earth would someone choose to have sex with a doll rather than a real human being|?

According to the owner of the brothel, “These dolls don’t leave a single sexual wish unfulfilled. If you’re a man paying for sex in whatever form, you’ll want something pretty exceptional rather than a quick in-and-out.  This could be sex in a certain position or something a little more fetish-focused. All of these can be achieved with a fool because, at the end of the day, it’s an intimate, highly flexible object with no feelings”.

A poser for female readers: Almost everything in today’s society is becoming automated and virtual, so why not s*x?  And if female dolls became all the rage, will women be in the market for male sex dolls too!?




There are more than seven billion people in this world so there is never a reason to settle for less when it comes to relationships. Men come in all forms and sizes and while there will never be such a thing as a perfect man, there are 4 types of men every woman should avoid at all costs:


The broke a*s: It’s 2019 and it’s no longer acceptable to date men with potential, especially for women who are above 25. If a man’s potential has not yet started being realised by his mid 20s, there’s no need to stick along with hopes the situation will change. As Beyonce put it in her song Diva: “if you ain’t talking money then you ain’t got nothing for me.”


The self-absorbed man: This is the kind of man whRead more hereo wants everything to go his way and thinks he’s awesome but in reality he’s a pr**k. This kind of man is usually successful, but his character is wanting. The man will talk about his “awesomeness” 24/7. About how he graduated top in his class, how he rose up the ranks to earn monthly what other ordinary mortals could only dream of earning after many years of toiling. He’ll talk about his designer clothes, his connections to the high and mighty and how he retired at a young age to start his own company because he couldn’t keep making money for someone else.


The stiff, unadventurous man: This is the kind of person who cares so much about what people think that he doesn’t live his life. The man will avoid public displays of affection because they don’t want to risk looking “uncultured”. This man will not take a random trip outside the city on a weekend because he likes things planned ahead, or rather, he’s a control freak and has to have details of everything in his life to a T. This man could never do a quick store run in shorts and sandals because he couldn’t imagine his fellow country club mates seeing him unpolished. You can only imagine how boring your relationship will be


The flirt: This is the kind of dude who will get friendly with any and every woman he meets. If it’s not hugging every woman he casually knows, it’s flirting with them and taking them out to drinks. This man has no boundaries and shares everything about himself to everyone. There is something to be said about a discreet man.




People don’t often think about how the food they’re eating may be affecting their sex drive, but there are foods that can make your libido plummet.


1. Soy


This one is particularly applicable to men. A study down at Harvard University showed a direct link between how much soy a man consumes and how much testosterone he has. The more soy he ate, the less testosterone he produced! Testosterone is a vital hormone linked to sex drive.


2. Mint


Mint produces menthol, which has a cooling effect on the body. However, it can also have a cooling effect on your sex drive! Chewing ginger will do the opposite, so next time you want to freshen your breath, try ginger to heat things up.



3. Microwaveable popcorn


For this one, it’s not actually the food that causes the decreased libido, but the packaging. The chemicals on the non-stick lining of microwave popcorn bags contain perfluoroalykl acids, which can kill sexual desire. Instead, try using a popcorn maker.


4. Fried foods


Although tasty, these foods are very high in trans-fats, which can kill sexual desire. They’ve actually been shown to lower testosterone in men, which greatly decreases libido. A better alternative would be a baked potato, which increases dopamine and sexual desire.


5. Alcohol


Regular drinking actually leads to a chemical reaction in the nervous system, which can decrease sensitivity. While it may increase confidence, it could lower sensitivity in the bedroom.


6. Coffee


The caffeine in coffee has the potential to be a serious stressor on the body. Hormonal imbalances can affect a person’s sex drive drastically. Coffee may help you in the morning, but not at night!


Eating a healthy diet is a part of functioning well, and that applies to sexual functioning too. Make sure you are giving your body what it needs to keep you healthy, active and sexually fulfilled.



Dear beautiful woman, be a beauty with brains. So you have been intimate with a married man, and he is promising to make you his second wife. The title of wife makes you think you are serious and special to him. But don’t accept to be his second wife because…

1. You are entering to it though the door of unfaithfulness. When he was pursuing you it was an affair, he is married.

2. A husband and wife cannot be one if another woman comes into the picture. You are distracting him from being a good husband and father, you are intruding.

3. In marriage, the husband and wife are equal. If it is expected for the wife to be faithful to her one husband, why should the husband not be faithful to his one wife?

4. When the husband and legitimate wife got married, they vowed to faithfulness, love and exclusivity. Why are you as an outsider coming to help him break that vow?

5. Most often the man asking you to be his second wife does so because he sees women as a weaker gender, sees women as a trophy in his cabinet, wants to legitimize and justify his affair, and is seeking for ways he can keep having sex with you yet still keep his legitimate marriage; or he does so just because you got an unplanned pregnancy.

6. If you accept to be his second wife, what is stopping him from getting a number three, four and five? You are not that special.

7. You should be top priority, number one, why accept to be second best?

8. No woman who is the legitimate wife will be OK with sharing her husband. It is not what she vowed to in marriage. How would you feel if you were the legitimate wife and another woman comes to divide your marriage? Don’t do that to a fellow woman.

8. The reason why so many men get away with affairs and breaking their home is because out there are women willing to be used by the man in doing so. Don’t let him use you.

9. At the end, the man is not proud to stand in front of the world and say “This is my first wife and that is my second wife and that is my third”. Inside him he is unsettled, especially when the women he is playing with wake up.

10. How would you feel being introduced as the second wife? The world knowing you are the woman who came to spoil another woman’s marriage?

11. How will you live with yourself as a woman when you face and witness the pain, anger and shame you have brought on the legitimate wife?

12. Why subject yourself to a life where your child/children have a dad who is constantly absent? You explaining to your child/children daddy had to go be with another family?

13. Look at funerals, the lives and families of men with multiple women suffer. The kids suffer most. The child/children of the legitimate wife will despise you and your child/children. Your child/children will struggle to fit in the man’s schedule. Why put yourself and your child/children through all these? Because of selfishness? It always ends ugly.

14. You may be the second wife, but the legitimate wife will always be the one who taught him love, the one who made him the man you now want. Don’t be an opportunist. Find your own man and make him great.

15. The fact that you would mess up a legitimate marriage and hurt the children in that legitimate marriage just so that you live a comfortable and happy life, says a lot about yourself.

16. You are an amazing woman, you can have any man you want, there are so many single men out there. Why do you settle for less? Why share? Why force yourself where you were not welcomed?

17. Why commit your entire future to a man who is OK and casual about breaking the commitment he made to his legitimate wife? He can’t be trusted.

18. You will never be one with him because you are not his only one.



According to a women's health expert, we should all be focusing on something much more important than roses, date nights and s3xy underwear this year.

Stephanie Taylor, managing director of Kegel8, is trying to get women looking after their own intimate areas.

She says: "Every woman dreams of being treated like a goddess on Valentine's Day. Yet, many of us are guilty of not looking after number one…our vaginas.

"The happiness and health of your intimate body parts should be high up on your list of priorities all year around, just like looking after your skin, hair and nails."

To help woman look after their vaginas, Stephanie has shared a list of 8 tips she claims every woman should follow.

1. Save, don't shave

"While some women may feel cleaner, more comfortable or even sexier when they shave, pubic hair does serve a purpose.

"It protects from bacteria and infections such as Folliculitis, absorbs sweat and acts as a buffer against friction."

A recent survey found 84 per cent of woman shave down there, and 50 per cent getting rid of everything - so this is something lots of people need to focus on.

2. Stay balanced

"You might not know it, but vaginas are actually self-cleaning thanks to good bacteria known as Lactobacilli.

"Using perfumed shower gels, bubble baths, moisturisers and wipes can upset your carefully balanced pH levels, potentially leaving you with uncomfortable thrush or bacterial vaginosis.

"So, next time you’re in the supermarket, opt for a perfume-free or sensitive products."

3. Brief encounters

Stephanie's next tip involved that cheeky underwear set you've bought for your other half...

"Sexy underwear and Valentine’s Day go hand in hand but the last thing you want is your fun ruined by a Urinary Tract Infection.

"When it comes to pelvic health, some underwear is better for you than others.

"Typically, thongs are tight-fitting and sit close to the skin, moving back and forth throughout the day which can contribute to a UTI.

"No matter what underwear you prefer, always opt for cotton, which is the most breathable fabric, helping to keep moisture at bay."

4. Hello hydration

We all know drinking lots of water is important, but did you know it's vital for a healthy vagina?

Stephanie explains: "Hitting the daily recommended H2O level can be a struggle, but if the promise of glowing skin and more energy doesn't incentivise you, maybe your v-gina might.

"If you're dehydrated, the drier you'll be down there, which could lead to issues like an infection, itching or burning.

"Depending on how active you are, you should aim to drink between two and three litres of water a day.

"If the thought of tap water bores you, jazz it up with citrus fruits, cucumber and mint."

5. The Golden Rule

Stephanie has one 'Golden Rule' when it comes to keeping things happy down there.

She says: "While there are many s-x myths, you should believe this one…peeing after s-x.

"That’s because clearing your bladder instantly flushes out any bacteria in your v-gina and urinary tract, cutting your risk of getting a UTI.

"You may not feel the sensation to go immediately after, but don't worry, as long as it's done within a reasonable amount of time you can relax."

6. Change after the gym

According to Stephanie, staying in your gym clothes after your work out is a "sin".

She says: "The thought of brunch after a sweaty workout might be a great motivator but staying in your gym clothes for too long is a sin.

"Sweaty clothes and underwear create the perfect breeding ground for bad bacteria, particularly if they’re tight and made from latex or polyester.

"So, have a quick shower and put on fresh clothes before you get on with the rest of your day."

7. Work your pelvic floor

"Pelvic floor weakness is often thought of as an 'old woman problem' but the truth is it can affect any woman at any point in her life.

"If you ignore your pelvic floor, you could end up with bladder incontinence, prolapse or a loss of sensation during s-x.

"Pelvic floor exercises should be part of your daily routine and if you need an extra helping hand, try a pelvic toner which uses electrical impulses to stimulate those all-important muscles."

8. Get to know your flow

Stephanie's final tip is an important one, and it's all about your periods.

She says: "Periods aren't always predictable. If you often find yourself caught short or waiting and waiting, download a fertility tracking app to help you keep tabs on your cycle.

"When your flow does start it'll be at its heaviest for the first day or two.

Make sure to change your pad frequently (at least every 4 hours) and opt for a thicker night-time towel.


Being single is amazing if you are not putting your life on hold because you are searching for love. You are free to live your life the way you want to, you can have fun, travel and go out for adventures. Yes, being single is amazing but not when valentines season is around. Although one is happy (well some) valentines comes around to remind us that being in a relationship can be fun and it has some benefits.


9 reasons why single ladies hate valentines:


1. It reminds us that we are single.


Not that we usually forget but Valentine’s really emphasizes that point that there is no bae. No wonder some women get into relationships in January just so that they cannot be alone during Valentines and they can be pampered during this day of love.




 


2. There are Public Displays Of Affection (PDA) everywhere.


People are holding hands, and kissing all over the place. It is all over on social media and you cannot get away from it.



 


3. Food might be bae but on Valentines getting a reservation at your favorite restaurant is hard.


This would be the perfect day to go drown your singleness sorrows with a couple of glasses of wine and some good food. But restaurant prices are up and even getting a reservation at your favorite restaurant is hard.

4. You resent all your taken friends.


Your friends might not be rubbing it in when they talk about their bae/side dish or husband and what they got for valentines but it makes it so obvious that you are single.

5. Everywhere you go you are assaulted by Valentines themed items.


It is not enough to know there is no special somebody to treat you during valentines but you have to be reminded that others do every time you walk into a supermarket. Now hawkers with valentines items are even on the streets and you get sad that nobody will buy you a cute little teddy bear or that chocolate you love.

6. Valentines is a work day so you must go to work.


The best way to avoid the singles blues on valentines would be to stay home, sleep or watch movies. But no you have to work or go to school. And you meet all those women with flowers and chocolates in town.

7. All your friends who are in relationships take this time to rub their relationships in your face.


This is the time your friends remind you “si you wanted to be single? Wacha we enjoy!”

8. Everywhere you turn including blogs are just taking about love, valentines, and couples.


Everybody is giving away dinners for couples on valentines, giving gift ideas for people in relationships etc. It makes you wish there was a day to celebrate the single people. Come to think of it why is there no day to celebrate single women?

9. Even if you are happily single, some of your single friends may bring you down.


You may be happily single, but some of your single friends can be depressing talking about how they don’t have a boyfriend or husband. This can be very depressing especially when they go on and on about




1. “Confidence”


A woman with confidence in herself radiates and calls out for admiration.


2. “Well-moisturized lips”


Let your lips not be dry. Use lip balm, lip gloss, lip stick or naturally keep your lips nourished. Your sexiness is incomplete if he doesn’t get distracted by your lips.


3. “Intelligent conversations”


This will excite a grown man. Yes, as you talk serious stuff he will find you sexy.


4. “Don’t put others down”


Don’t bad mouth other people, a woman who does so shows just how insecure she is and how low she thinks of herself. A hater is not sexy nor attractive.


5. “Dress your body size”


Big or small, curvy or lean, tall or short; dress your body like the beauty it is. Look good, he will notice and hunt you, wondering what is under your good dressing. Be an eye candy.


6. “Talk with your eyes”


Master the art of pulling a man with your eyes. Maintain eye contact, be expressive, show your subtle power.


7. “Smile more”


It keeps the man hooked on exploring you, he reads it as you telling him “Hmm, you are good, come and get me!”


8. “Have a pleasant personality”


You may have a gorgeous body, but if your personality stinks, a man will avoid you or fantasize about you but never want to have you, desire your physical nature but avoid you as a person.


9. “Smell good”


You will be hugged more and cuddled more; plus you will leave a scented memory on your man when you leave. His nose is an important sensual organ.


10. “Laugh, really laugh”


Don’t hold back your laughter; if you are tickled, laugh. Stop trying to be rigid and pretty about your laughter, relax in his presence. One of the memories a man constantly thinks of is his woman laughing, it makes him feel intimate with her; the more a man feels closer with you the higher your sex appeal.


11. “Don’t be cheap”


Know the difference between trashy and sexy.


12. “Show the right amount of skin”


Don’t be too desperate for attention. A woman who knows she is hot doesn’t struggle. True style doesn’t shout, show the right amount of skin to tease and arouse the man’s imagination.


13. “Walk with a purpose”


It tells the man how powerful you are. Queens are powerful. A man gets turned on by a powerful woman, why the low self esteem?


14. “Avoid curse words and bitter utterances”


A toxic mouth is rarely found kissable


15. “Invest in lingerie”


You dress well when you step out of the house, dress well for your hubby inside the house


16. “Take care of your hair


Make sure your weave or braids is good and well-maintained, no stench. If you have natural hair, keep it nourished so that he will love to run his hair through it.


17. “Know how to touch”


A woman’s touch melts a man, drown him with your feminine sensations.


18. “Use your voice and speech”


It’s in not only what you say but how you say it, how you whisper in his ears, how you talk to him intimately, how you breathe close to him. Your man is listening.


19. “Your extra sexiness”


There is a sexiness unique to you; perhaps how you dance, how you bend to pick up stuff or do house chores, how you recline on the sofa, how you tilt your head when you talk, how you move your waist, how you turn to look at him. Be aware of this and use it to excite him. Your man is watching, men are visual. He may not tell you but he is studying you. And when he praises something you are doing, keep doing it.


20. “Be a tease”


Exclusively flirt with him, lead him on, be playful, be naughty, be cheeky, be suggestive. Call him out to play.


Lady, remember that the right man will bring out your sexiness, you will discover new things about you when with him, you will feels sexy and exude sexiness effortlessly. But also remember you have a role to play to stay sexy, any woman who loves her man enjoys stimulating him, it makes her feel good about herself

well 101 was a bit of exageration but all the same follow these few easy steps and you will stand a good chance of not getting pregnant………

1. Don’t have sex without a condom

but if you do you will not only stand a chance of getting an unwanted pregnancy but the possibility of getting infected with a sexually transmitted disease. if you are not so sure of your partner’s health status, get this done.

2. Don’t miss a daily contraceptive pill

it is advisable to use both the condom and the pill, however if you choose only the pill you might be at a higher risk of getting pregnant if you forget a pill for a day or two

 

3. Don’t have unprotected sex during your period

a lot of ladies think that whilst you are on your period you will never get pregnant if you have an unprotected sex. get that assumption out of your head, there is nothing like ”safe time” to enjoy unprotected sex

 

4. Don’t think pulling out before ejaculation can prevent pregnancy

treat a penis like a loaded gun, its always dangerous. so be on guard at all times

 

5. its not ok to rub an unprotected penis around the outside of a vagina

its still possible for some sperms to get inside the vagina so do not rub an unprotected penis around the outside of a vagina

6. Don’t allow either partners fingers to touch a penis and then enter the vagina

even before ejaculation some sperms can still be present so don’t try this

7. Don’t leave a penis inside a vagina for too long after ejaculation

it is always best to withdraw straight after ejaculation because it is a common cause for the condom to coming off, and this is when the penis has gone down, stayed too long and the condom is no longer a right fit

8. Don’t have sex if you think all this is too much to remember or better Still be celibate

it is so easy to forget during the heat of the moment, so if you do not want to be found wanting stay zipped up and closed up


and finally never underestimate the power of a sperm. a small drop of semen on a man’s penis carries enough sperm to impregnate all the women in Ghana. in case your geography is not hot, we are talking about 18 million babies



Women have always been scrutinized from the time they were born.


We are taught to act politely, not to shout and do all these ladylike manner of things that sometimes put us in vulnerable positions. However, there are women who have learnt the art of being women and more like boss women. They sometimes appear to be “unladylike” but I like to think they are balanced. They know when to blush and turn pink but at the same time they know when to stand up for themselves and just roar. These type of women are a thrill to some men, the kind of men that are not oppressive but enjoy a challenge once in a while.

Here are the “unladylike” things some men love in women:

1. Women who can handle their alcohol.

Yes, she knows her limits and she handles her liquor well. She doesn’t disappear on the people she is with and still manages to hold a reasonable conversation even when she is tipsy and oh, she loves her whiskey and strong drinks.

2. Women who can have a good time and not be so uptight.

She is not petty so you can joke with her about anything and she won’t hold an unnecessary grudge.

3. One who can defend herself and is unapologetic for it.

She doesn’t go looking for fights or opportunities to bully people but when you step on her toes she will have a major clap back. She is assertive and doesn’t wait for a man to defend her honor.

4. The kind that will eat without pretending she doesn’t love food.

She does not pretend to only a eat a little when she knows she loves meat and food in general.

5. One who has a sense of humor.

She understands jokes and doesn’t take everything too seriously. She knows when to take some things with a pinch of salt because she is also funny.

6. A woman who communicates her feelings effectively.

She doesn’t expect a man to magically guess what is wrong with her. She is reasonable and emotionally wise and would rather settle issues than drag them on for too long.

 

7. One who is comfortable with her sexuality.

Women who are okay with talking about sex have been frowned upon in the past. But women who can now talk about their sexuality openly are mature gems to that are appreciated much more than women who pretend to be saints.

Being single can be boring but trust that you can make the process a fun one.


Kuulpeeps Ashesi has put together some fun stuff you can do when you are single and feel like there is no fun at all.

Netflix and chill

You don’t necessarily need someone to cuddle and watch movies with. Grab some microwavable popcorn, some chilled drink, play one of your favorite movies or series, and enjoy away. when the food is done, just hold unto your pillow or teddy bear and cuddle away. This can be fun.

2. The self love syndrome

This is the era of self love. So join the squad. Treat yourself right. Pamper yourself. Go get your nails done. Book a spa day appointment.

3. Sign up for a dance class

The Ashesi Crewdx has got you. They have dance classes this and  they meet every two weeks, on Fridays at 8pm. Show up and learn new moves, and release some stress during the process.

4. Try a new workout

Working out can be fun. It can help you distress, and get your kind off certain things. Above all, it makes you healthy and fit. Try different fitness classes online. If not, join a fitness class. Show up and sweat it out.

5. Snaps

This might sound boring. But trust that it is fun. Lay back, grab your phone, and just watch people’s snaps. Some things people post will crack you up. Just laugh away



Guys keep making noises in our ears about the fact that ladies are very indecisive about what they want. The point the keep going back to is the fact that they “shave” all their brow only to draw it back which of course isn’t totally true.


Don’t get it twisted; ladies only shape their brows to make it easier to draw it accurately. Unless you’re like some people we know…

The way guys were complaining about the brows, what would they have done if we were in the 1920’s or 1930’s?

But on a real, those times the eyebrows were so funny. Lets go back in time to acknowledge the eyebrow trends that have occurred.

1920- Thin and rounded

The ’20s was the beginning of very extreme beauty routines for women everywhere. Eyebrows were no longer to be left in their natural state. Thin brows were considered very chic.

1940 – Full and Natural Arches

Wartime American meant makeup, while still glamorous, become quicker and less dramatic in the ’40s. Many women were working traditionally masculine jobs for the first time in their lives to replace the labor force taken by World War II. 

1950 – Brushed Arched Brows

Eyebrows remained thick and arched, using makeup to fill them in since they became more popular then, as compared to decades before.

1960 – Short and Simple

Thanks to Twiggy’s (an English model, actress, and singer) signature lashes, brows were treated as more of a sideshow 

1970 – Thin Arched Eyebrows


Thinness slowly crept back into popularity in the ’70s. More room for sparkly eyeshadow, maybe? Whatever the cause was, the ’70s brows were all about natural shape, not a lot of filling in, and a slender arch.

1980 – Bushy Brows

Thick brows were back again in the ’80s, but unlike the ’50s and ’60s, perfectly shaped brows were not the style. Instead, stars like Brooke Shields and Madonna led the movement as bushy, unkempt “caterpillar” eyebrows became all the rage.

1990 – Pencil thin brows with curved arches

Seems like people were fed up with the bushy brows trend and once again, pencil thin brows (their first love) once again came into vogue.

2000 – Thin and Short Brows

While the super-skinniness of the brow started to lose popularity, other bad grooming trends picked up steam. Instead of making brows thinner, many people began making them shorter

2010 – Bold brows

Thickness is once again the hallmark of a healthy, beautiful brow—our obsession with eyebrows revolves around the bold, thick brows of celebrities like Cara Delevingne, Kim Kardashian, and Lily Collins. 

2015 – Instagram Brows

The onset of the #OnFleek revolution. IG became the go-to destination for brow inspo thanks to beauty influencers.

2017 – Weird Brows

We can’t really tell how these came about buuutt, one thing we can confidently say is they were trends on social media and not really as a lifestyle thing. For some reason, 2017 got our creative juices flowing!

barbed wire brows


lighting bolt brows

2019 – …well….

Since the year just began, we are hoping to see more creativity…no matter how absurd they might look
