Landscaping and Manscaping

You can file this one under Sexual Education and Grooming! I'm talking about pubic hair, the hair down there that can be the subject of many 'romantic' conversations. Women have it and men have it, but women are put on blast about it constantly. And men need to take more time maintaining their nether region. So, I decided to write a little article on keeping the hedges trimmed.

Pubic Hair
Peach Fuzz

There are many names, just for the hair down there. It is such a common thing that it is necessary to give it many names, so that you can fit it into conversation better. It is a common belief that the purpose of pubic hair is to keep women from getting any "stuff" into their vagina and keep a guys sperm warm.

So what's all the fuss about? Well, in ye olden days people didn't have the hygiene skills to shave their monstrous muffs. "You know what's under my petticoat?" Today, men and women alike are getting sick of those little obnoxious hairs and are insisting they be shaved away.

To bare or not to bare is the question? Do we keep our vaginas shaved in submission to masculin pressure or can we grow our bush and be proud? To maintain an equilibrium, I vote to enjoy and combination of both.

At times, shaving can be annoying. From razor burn to cutting that tender skin, is it really worth it? To enjoy a variety of "hair cuts" is to be as flexible as possible. No one should be judging, or taking score. A given amount of hygiene is expected, and a fair trim is necessary! But let's just be fare, and be free to bare!

Yea, I went there and yea, you should think about it!!

Grimm :: Old Tales A'new

I've been watching this crazy show, Grimm since it aired on NBC a few weeks ago. Seven episodes into the first season, I am hooked on this great sci-fi crime show.

The show brings to life the old stories from the Brothers Grimm. The beautiful childrens stories like The Three Little Pigs and Rapunzel. The original stories are darker than the Disney movies we see today. Murder, lies and deception. All made into "moral teaching" stories to scare children into being 'good'.

The new NBC hit has combined the tales and centered the show around the "last Grimm". A cop on the hunt to find deamons that appear to be human. In a world of evil and darkness, these stories take on a new, criminal light.

This show is so much fun to watch. I love the combination of CIS and Charmed. That's really how I'm seeing this movie. The magic is wonderful yet suspensful. The violence is delicious and it makes my mouth water. I love the legends and lore that are included in this dark drama. That's one think I truely miss from the show Charmed, the connections to great mythical creatures and magical beings. It's nice to see a fun show come a long that leaves us wanting to know more.

Children's Television Programming

Why do Americans and television go together so well? We all love it, we obsess over it and we mold our lives to resemble what we see on TV. We all have our favorite stars, shows, movies and games. We all know that technology has come a long way, but it seems to me that the majority of this evolution has taken place in the "television" department. We've seen so many additions to television since the days of 2 stations in black and white.

But along with this television progessive evolution, our children are watching more and more telivision on a daily basis. Most children watch 2 hours of telivision per day until the age of 6. After 6 years of age, telivision consumption spikes to 4 hours in front of the TV PLUS an additional 2 hours of computer or video game usage.

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that kids under 2 years old not watch any TV and that those older than 2 watch no more than 1 to 2 hours a day of quality programming.
So here's the thing. Kid's aren't supposed to watch TV but we know how convenient it is. Maybe I'm a horrible mother for doing it (or just admitting I do it) but my 1 year old really enjoys his TV time. We spend a lot of time cuddleing on the couch watching our shows. I'm sure he's unaware of the meaning behind what he sees, but he knows he likes it.

Not all television is bad either. There are a lot of great, educational shows directed at children. These shows and movies teach them skills with basic repetition and fun. For older children, it's also not a bad idea to let them see what is happening in the world. Watching (monitored) adult programming can expose children, in a positive way, to the real world. Teaching them social interactions that they can't learn in books. As with everything, it's all about the spin YOU decide to put on it!

My advice is to maintain a "healthy limit" of television time. No one, including adults, should be spending a majority of their time in front of the television. There are limitations, there are some days when we feel like being lazy couch potatoes. But we need to focus on getting our children away from the screens.

The Hunger Games vs. Twilight :: Battle of the Trilogies

Twilight, I don't get it. Vampires are great and I'm sure the fans will argue, but The Hunger Games is epic and will reign king of trilogies after all is said and done.

The Hunger Games movies are stated to be 4 movies of the 3 books, the same as with Twilight. But unlike Twilight, which was well received even though it had disappointed the details, HG promises to stick to the original story line.

The HG in itself is a powerful story of treason and loyalty. It teaches a more powerful lesson than the fantasy of Twilight. While the two stories share a similar love triangle, Twilight spends more time focusing on the lovers. Not until the end of the third HG book, Mockingjay, do we hear of Katniss' children.


The cast will also be very powerful. Jennifer Lawrence, who is set to play Katniss is in the same shoes as Kristen Stewart. A little known actress who is destined for stardom after the release of the first movie. Lawrence claims she doesnt want to reach the same amount of fame as her Twilight rival, but I'm forced to believe otherwise. I'm also waiting to see Woody Harrelson as Haymitch (one of my favorite actors) and Lenny Kravitz as Cinna (who I feel is a perfect choice).

"It's like part of Jennifer really wants to overtthrow Kristen as Hollywood's young darling, and she's more motivated now that their feud is pretty much out in the open," Jennifer's pal tells OK!.
In turn, Kristen, 21, like a good little vampire, went right for the virtual neck, biting into Jennifer's looks, branding her "plain," the pal says. "Jennifer isn't innocent, but it hurt when she found out what Kristen said," the pal says.

I could go on and on, but the fact is The Hunger Games is better than Twilight. There's no real competition. There is a human connection to the characters and story of HG that you can't feel with the flashy, very fake vampries.

Kirk Cameron Hates Gays

On Piers Morgan last weekend Kirk Cameron, the self proclaimed profit and IMO hypocritical Jesus freak, ranted his disdain for homosexuals. Claiming that homosexuals and gay marriage destroy our social and cultural structures.

Morgan asks what Kirk would say to his children if they were to be gay themselves. His response was just as annoying as everything else he says "just because we feel one one doesn't mean we should act on everything we feel." Denying what we all know to be true, that homosexuality is not just a feeling, it is an inherent nature that some people are born with. Normal NOT Wrong!

Kirk... um, gays aren't the problem with our institutions. The problem with our institutions is that they are designed to exclude certain groups of people based on ancient religious views. You are clearly stuck in a religious time warp, where it's 1800 and people burn witches in city squares. I'm not sure why it is so hard for the deeply religious people to see that loving someone of the same sex is simply a character trait, not to be judged by our (your) puny intelligence! Unless there is some type of denial you are suffering!

Here's the video. What are your thoughts?

Lost In The Air

Been really bustled lately,
Here and there and everywhere.
Keeping my head above the surf.
Trudging through mud and dirt.
Opening up my windows,
to let the fresh air in.
Opening up my heart,
to let love in.
Opening my mind,
to savor that wordless emotion,
that feels like a deep breath atop a snowcap.
Peaceful, serene.
Relaxing and meditating my muscles,
into satin or whip-cream.
Kicking back after a long hot day.
In the arms of the man I love,
loosening the bow that wraps around my heart.
Lust, seduction, heat.
Running down busy streets,
and through quiet meadows.
Nestled under a tall oak,
kiss and sleep.
Dreams of a perfect tomorrow.

Adele - Now What?

We all know and love Adele. She's a true artist and has the voice of a Goddess. She has surpassed Lady Gaga as the reigning Queen of Pop. Her album has hit #1 on all of the charts and her 6 Grammy noms and wins, she is the best at the game.

We love her sultry voice, as curvy as her gorgeous body. Being British is only part of her appeal. We adore her and her broken heart. Her sassy way of overcoming heartbreak has captivated the romantic in all of us. We can not help but feel her pain and wish to demolish the guy responsible for her tears. That is her true spark.

Adele connects to us all. We have all been there and gone through it and the words she uses to express this is unlike any musician has before. It's the blues with a new view. But with the initial connection being such an intense emotion, how can Adele manage to keep the train running?

I'm sure she will be able to find her muse in something else just as wonderful, and I'm curious to see how that works out for her. But it seems that since she has more than likely moved on from this guy, it's hard to believe she still has a broken heart. No guy can be that great! I would hate to see such a great voice as Adele's go to the way-side simply because we/she can't find that same passion as the initial heartbreak.

Prop 8: Tipping The Scale

Finally, the evil Prop 8 has been overturned. It's been the talk of the nation for days now. Celebrities are rejoicing and the LGBT public is finally getting what it deserve. It's a great time in our history. We are finally reaching a point in evolution where we are beginning to respect and accept those that are different than ourselves. 

Ellen DeGeneres discussed the victory on her show saying that she was very "happy" for the decision. Ellen married her wife Portia de Rossi in 2008. Her fame has definitely contributed to the rise of LGBT consciousness.   It's because of great women and men like Ellen that we have come this far.

Eat That
The scale is finally starting to tip in favor of "gay marriage". The time has come for our homosexual friends to experience the same joys and sorrows associated with marriage as the "breeders". Thank god, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Hopefully we can say so-long to oppression of all types withing the coming years. It takes time and evolution to change, but I believe people are generally good and are capable of giving up their prejudices. 

The best question is "now what". Well, hopefully we will see the full institutionalization of gay marriages. There is still a lot of legal bullshit and papers to be signed, but with the way things are trending I'm hopeful this will occur within the next few weeks or months. Even anti-gay politicians can't be that dense not to see that equal rights apply to everyone!

The $50 Lesson

I got this from one of my best friends. It's a true story -- very funny! ~

The $50 Lesson

Recently, while I was working in the flower beds in the front yard, my neighbors stopped to chat as they returned home from walking their dog.

During our friendly conversation, I asked their little girl what she wanted to be when she grows up.  

She said she wanted to be President some day.

Both of her parents, liberal Democrats, were standing there, so I asked her, "If you were President what would be the first thing you would do?"

She replied... "I'd give food and houses to all the homeless people."

Her parents beamed with pride!

"Wow...what a worthy goal!" I said. "But you don't have to wait until you're President to do that!" I told her.

"What do you mean?" she replied.

So I told her, "You can come over to my house and mow the lawn, pull weeds, and trim my hedge, and I'll pay you $50. Then you can go over to the grocery store where the homeless guy hangs out, and you can give him the $50 to use toward food and a new house."

She thought that over for a few seconds, then she looked me straight in the eye and asked, "Why doesn't the homeless guy come over and do the work, and you can just pay him the $50?"

I said, "Welcome to the Republican Party."

Her parents aren't speaking to me.

Be Dirty

There is a rising theory that soap is one of the most harmful things we can put on our bodies. It is necessary at times to remove germs and other stuff from our skin, but it is also known to be very drying. 

Aside from use on the more smelly parts of your body (genitals and sweaty areas) it's a good idea to lay low on your lathering. Even your hair. We've known for years that letting our hair collect natural oils keeps it glowing. The same is true for our skin.

Think of it as using the wrong tool. Soap today is harsh and isn't correctly balanced so that it doesn't take away your natural oils which are essential to healthy glowing skin and hair.

I suggest reducing the amount of soap to a minimum. Wash your hair every other day or skip a few days if you can stand it. Also look into getting all natural cleansers. These are less likely to damage your bodies individual balance.

Dating Rules Every Lesbian Should Know

You can find the original article at TheOtherTeam written by SLUSH.


Slush is passionate about lgbt rights, filmmaking, dogs, and partying (not particularly in that order). Rather than listening to her talk about herself in the 3rd person, you should say hi on Facebook or Twitter.

Lesbians all over the world  struggle with the question of dating protocol every single day. After all, you’re two women, for goodness sake. How do you know who is supposed to wear the pants and pay for dinner? Invite you in? Go in for the kiss? The truth is, there’s no definitive answer about a lot of these things.
dating rules From the first date to a long term relationship, you have to figure things out how to make things work in your best interest. No need to fear, though. Even though there aren’t any cookie mold answers to all your questions about lesbian dating, there are certainly some good rules to live by.
 Who pays?
It’s an age-old question, and one that causes all of us anxiety at some point as we look at the bill sitting on the table and wonder if we should grab it … Or let her grab it … Or offer to go halfsies?
In general, if you’ve initiated the date, offer to pay for it. After all, it was your idea. Sure, she might wave you off and insist on paying for her share. But offering is the right thing to do (and being prepared to follow up with paying is also essential.)
 If your date initiated the date, do at least offer to pay for your half. Depending on your own beliefs, the way she handles that situation might have a bit more meaning to you. (i.e. If she actually letsyou pay for your half, your beautiful illusion of a girl-in-shining-armor might be tarnished on the spot.
 For instance, I was out with a woman once, and it came time to pay the check. I like to consider myself a pretty big tomboy, but she in this case was a little more “butch” than I was. She had asked me out, but I did offer to pay my share simply to be courteous (I wasn’t sure if I was really feeling her, if you know what I mean.) Well imagine my surprise when she actually let me do it! I went from “on the fence” to over the fence in a hurry on that one just because I felt like her decision to allow me to pay was in bad taste. (Did I ask for it? Sure. But that doesn’t mean I can’t complain!)
 Who asks?
There are no set rules on who should initiate a date, although there will be clues if you’re the one who should be doing the asking. For instance, if yours is an old-school Butch/Femme pairing, you can bank on the fact that the Femme is most likely waiting for the Butch to make the first move. I know, life’s not fair. Men have been complaining about that one for centuries. I personally love doing the asking and feel a sense of satisfaction from making the first move.
 Outside of the above, if you’re really interested in going out with a girl, just ask. It will never be considered inappropriate. Chances are, she’ll be relieved that you took the reins – especially if she’s been giving off the vibe that she’s as into you as you are into her.
 Her place… Or Yours?
Again, there’s no hard and fast rule about where you might decide to crash for the night, although there are definitely some things to take into consideration. For instance, whose place is more convenient (either to where you are now… or where you need to be tomorrow morning)? Whose place is nicer (cable? hot tub? Pool?)? Whose place is more private (i.e. you won’t have to worry about her roommate popping in as you start to get into the mood)?
 Then there are other questions to consider based on a well you actually know each other. Do you trust her enough to give her your address? Do you trust her enough to go into her home blindly? If you aren’t in the full trusting mode of your relationship, you may want to stick with public places. Whether you’re at a coffee shop or a hotel, people will be there to hear any cries of distress. Play it safe when you decide the best place for you to spend time together.
Over time, you may find that you always tend to hang out at one place over another. If that’s the case, just touch base once in awhile to make sure both of you are okay with that. You don’t want to offend her by always insisting on your place or never offering to invite her to your place. Similarly, you don’t want to feel obligated to always have her over or to always go to her house. If you’re close enough to be spending that much time together, you shouldn’t have a hard time having the “Your place or mine?” talk at any given point in your dating history.
 Ex Etiquette:
Short answer? No. Meaning, don’t talk about them. Don’t whine about them. Don’t mention how good they were in bed. Don’t mention how much they broke your heart (or worse, how badly you broke their heart). When it comes to ex-girlfriends it’s best to leave them in the past where they belong.
 For one, talking about your ex-girlfriend is not a turn on, as it shows you’re more hung up on your previous lover. Nobody wants to feel like they’re a replacement, a rebound, or even worse, just taking up space until you find someone who meets your past expectations. That’s just too much work for one girl to handle and it will undoubtedly lead to negative feelings.
 Outside of that, it’s not a good idea to dwell on your ex because that prohibits you from finding a new squeeze. If your ex has taught you anything, it should be what you don’t want. Now is the time to focus on what you do want.
 What kind of girl are you looking for, and where are you most likely to meet her? I’m not just talking about Butch versus Femme. I’m talking about lesbian activist? Corporate professional? Sporty sexpot? Granola environmentalist? Think about the qualities you’re looking for, and the things that will inspire you in a partner. You can’t possibly find the girl of your dreams if you don’t have any idea what she’s like. Hope you enjoyed this post, don’t forget to stop by next week!
Rock On,

Tattoos Are Painful

If you are considering a tattoo for the first time, you're probably wondering about the pain. You've been told it can go either way. I want to clear up any confusion about this. Tattoo's do hurt no matter where they are. And there is only 1 rule to remember when deciding how much pain you will be in, the closer to the bone the more pain there will be. The more fat you have, the less it will hurt because the bone is deeper under the skin. The vibration from the tattoo gun can travel through your bone and radiate through your body. Keep that in mind when deciding on the placement of your tattoo. But they are beautiful and well worth the pain!
