Seven Secrets For a Happy Healthy Sex Life

It is important for your health that you have a healthy sex life. Sex is one of the greatest gifts that God has bestowed upon a husband and wife. You should embrace this gift and allow the outpouring of love that comes from a truly healthy sexual relationship.I believe women should have sex everyday. It has so many healthy benefits including weight management, stress reduction, muscle strengthening, and cardiovascular stimulation. Unfortunately, many women say they are too busy for sex or that they just don’t enjoy sex. The longer they abstain the less they think about it, and before long that loving relationship is gone. Before you lose out on the benefits of healthy sex, I wanted to point out all the wonderful things that sex is and what it is not.1. Sex should be a magical energy that is controlled by both participants, not some force of nature that has no boundaries.2. Sex should be a choice between two adults; it should never be an obligation. Try to avoid treating sex like one of your household chores. If necessary, allocate those other chores to others, hire a maid, grab some take out, but don’t leave sexual fulfillment in the hands of others.3. Sex should be a natural drive that you possess; it should not be an obsession or an addiction. If you feel like your sex life has taken the latter course, and are concerned that it is impeding your intimate relationship with your partner, consult a therapist.4. Sex should be an expression of love. Your lovemaking should be just that, an exchange of physical stimulation and satisfaction between you and your partner. It should never be a condition for affection, as it being the only way your lover will kiss or caress you, it should never be devoid of love.5. Sex should be private but it shouldn’t have to be secretive. When sex is kept a secret it usually means the relationship is going nowhere. Either the participants are under age, married or in a professional position that may be compromised by the relationship. None of these situations makes for a good healthy sexual relationship.6. Sex should be empowering. After a sexual romp, you should feel beautiful, not battered and abused by an inconsiderate lover. You should never feel as if someone has power over you during sex.7. Sex heightens your self-esteem. Sex should be all about making you and your partner feel wonderful.

The Purpose and Power of Sex Part 2

Pornography is everywhere — on billboards, the internet and its wide choice of pornographic sites, in lyrics of songs, in music videos, in films and on the lips of people (in their language, jokes and off-colour remarks). Practically all popular soap operas have their stories built around premarital sex, adultery, homosexuality and divorce; these issues are made to seem trivial. X-rated magazines and films abound, film stars are known to hop from one sexual relationship to another, yet they are role models to millions of teenagers and young adults around the world the world, and surgeries to enlarge female and male sexual organs are still performed in the name of sex.The society sells sex one way or the other and unfortunately, many young men and women, teenagers included, seem to buy into it. Premarital sex has become one of the greatest social problems of our time, as it is the reason for:The great increase in the incidence of teenage pregnancies in our society;many young ladies being single mothers, while the young men are absentee fathers;the consistent rise in the rate of abortion and unfortunately, the number of young women who die from it is also rising. The rise in AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases amongst our teenagers, youth and adults; sexual vices such as rape, incest, homosexuality and pornography.The problem is not with sex but with the fact that people do not know the power and purpose of sex hence they abuse it. There is a better way to handle and prevent sex in courtship. I know from personal experience that it is possible to have a pre-marital relationship without having sex. I courted my wife for about three years and we never had sex; I married as a virgin. If I could do it, so can you. All it takes is a decision, the decision to remain sexually chaste before marriage, no matter the odds.

Adults Returning to Education

Education is essential for every human being. We cannot survive in this world without education. It is in the best interest of the governments of every nation to ensure that at least basic education is provided to all their citizens.There are several socio-economic reasons that lead many people to discontinue their studies when they are young. Most of them may have had burning desires to continue their education further, but their commitments to their families or their economic status may have been a hindrance to their continuing their studies.Many of these adults who were dropouts from the schools in their childhood yearn to continue their education at a later and more convenient time. This has lead to the development of several adult education programs worldwide. These adult education programs come as a boon to those adults looking to complete what education they’ve left incomplete.When the government started these adult education programs, initially there was not a lot of response to such programs from most people. They were very reluctant to join such programs.Though many of them wanted to make an attempt, they were not sure whether they could pick up their educational threads at that age. The governments had to take a lot of steps to encourage people to join.There is a saying that is very popular, and can apply to many different situations: “better late than never.” Many adults have realized the importance and necessity of education and have come forward to enroll themselves in the many adult education programs available. They consider it a privilege to be able to educate themselves, even at an advanced stage of their lives.These educational programs are organized by both government as well as voluntary institutions. Adult education programs not only provide basic education, they also guide their students towards higher education. These programs arrange financial aid and scholarships for students.Adults can pursue their careers and enroll themselves in these programs simultaneously. This is made possible with the availability of online programs.The people are provided with coursework that deals with politics, spirituality, self development, and other things. Adults usually tend to find these programs useful and interesting. They normally end up urging their relatives and friends to join these programs.
