Stupid Tip of the Day: All Lube is the Same. (MA)
Tipsfromtia.com olive oil condiment vegeterian food

You may think all lubricants and oils to enhance a sexual experience, are built the same, but that is not the case. You’ve seen the commercials for her pleasure and for his, and a chemical reaction happens when they combine. Lubricants can be very effective in giving a hypersensitive experience, in the bedroom. In some cases, a lube is even necessary to achieve a pleasurable experience.

There is no shame in needing or wanting a lubricant with your partner. Just be sure to discuss with each other the options. It’s important to have good communication with sex and important to have sexual health. Lubricants can break down latex, if you are having protected sex using condoms. Another form of protection must be discussed, before adding in a lube.

When deciding which lubricant to purchase, I recommend doing just what you would do if you were buying a new food; Check the label. The more natural the product is, the better reaction you will probably have with it. Some lubes actually contain silicone or other strange chemicals that may not treat your insides well. People try to come up with many alternatives and end up causing much harm to your body and your partners body.

When in doubt, go to the kitchen and get olive oil. It’s the most natural lubricant.

Removing Hickies or Passion Marks as I Like to Call Them.

By Tia Cristy

Problem: Hey Tia. Sometimes in the heat of the moment my boyfriend will leave hickies on my neck. I work in an office and I don’t want to look…you know. I use make up to cover it up but, you can still see them. What can I do to cover it up?

Tip from Tia: There is noting wrong with having extravagant passion for one another. Celebrate it. But, I totally understand that you don’t want to advertise your sex life, on your neck. Well, it’s better to get rid of the hickies or passion marks as I like to call them, then just covering them up. Hickies are bruising of the skin, where it has been sucked. The capillaries have broken and rush towards the layers of skin. Now, those capillaries are trapped, and since it is not a sever injury, you can break them away from their cluster, that is giving a bruised appearance and make the blood flow natural, around the area again. (If it was an injury that cause bruising I wouldn’t recommend trying to get rid of a bruise, you could possibly just hurt yourself further)

So, an easy enough tip to remove the hickey is, grab a lipstick cap or a small bottle cap with smooth edges. Place the hollow end to the skin, and twist the cap into the bruised skin repeatedly, around the whole area. It may feel tender while doing it, but you don’t want to hurt yourself. The area will be red when you’re done.

Apply make up to cover the area, if the foundation alone isn’t covering add a little bit of cornstarch to the foundation to thicken it up and apply. The hickey should reduce in color within a few hours to a day, repeat process if necessary.

For those trying to have babies, that don’t have any known medical issues, there are several things a guy can add to his system, to rev up the swimmers to help them reach their mark.

Adding strawberries into a man’s diet is a good way to start up the sperm. Strawberries are also known as a sexy fruit. It’s also packed with Vitamin C which is great to build the immune system.

Oysters are known as another sexy food, but they do have benefit for helping in reproduction. If you aren’t into oysters, you won’t get as much zinc but, peanuts could help too.

Having a good diet and good health is a good step in the right direction to procreate. Guys, remember, if eating something particular makes you feels sluggish, it probably makes you boys feel sluggish too.

Adding a shot of caffeine is a good tip to help give a boost on ovulation day. But, too much caffeine on a daily basis can have the opposite affect.

Most important tip, don’t put too much pressure or stress on one another. Stress can lower chances which can lead to disappointment and agitation. Enjoy practicing with your partner. If you have any medical questions or concerns, contact your doctor to talk about your goals.

When Chemistry is Gone. Stupid Tip of the Day:

By Tia Cristy

Stupid Tip of the Day: When Chemistry is Gone.
TipsfromTia.com healthy bread on wood

So when it comes to cleaning, making bread or having sex, chemistry is involved. When chemistry is gone, it doesn’t mean that’s it, it’s over or it doesn’t work anymore.

Most times the solution is easy enough, if you recognize only one chemical was put in and the other chemical was not. Hence, it takes 2 chemicals to make the reaction.

For example, if its getting out a stain, it takes the stain and the stain remover combined, to react. If it’s making bread it takes the yeast and the right air to rise.

And finally, if it’s a relationship, both people have to put in the time and effort to keep that chemistry going. A relationship can only survive when both parties are willing to try and make it work, one more so than the other is fine, but both ingredients must be present.

Chemistry is a natural thing, but the ingredients have to come together, for it work it’s natural magic. So remember, it takes 2 chemicals to have a reaction. If chemistry is gone, one chemical may have been forgotten. Only you can figure out, if it’s a necessary ingredient.

Tips on Triggers: Can’t Keep your Eye’s Open?
tipsfromtia.com (10)

The day is long and you didn’t get enough sleep, but you need to get through just a little longer. Your eyes are starting to close and you can’t control it.

Here’s a sensitive trigger point that can help you get a jolt to the eyes quickly. At the base of your head where it meets the neck is your occipital. Slightly rub on both sides with a light massage. This will give your eyes a burst of energy.  Don’t rub too hard. Too much pressure can cause damage, so be gentle to your sight.

It doesn’t always last long, so make sure you’re not operating heavy machinery, including driving, relying on this trigger point to get you to your finish line, but it will give you an ability to make it through that file or that end of the day board meeting.

Monthly Cramps Got you Doubled Over? Tips on Triggers:

Monthly Cramps Got you Doubled Over? Tips on Triggers:

"Woman With Abdominal Pain" by Ohmega1982 FreeDigitalPhotos.net
“Woman With Abdominal Pain” by Ohmega1982 FreeDigitalPhotos.net

 

 

Period cramps can be debilitating to some women. The pain can have some ladies doubled over in pain for the first few days.

It doesn’t have to be so uncomfortable. There is a trigger area that can help break down the period to relieve cramping.

A quick understanding on why this happens is cramps are usually caused by the flow. Clotting and thickness are usually the culprit of a painful cramp. So, in reality, making a thinner flow will reduce the pain and throbbing.

Take 3 fingers and massage gently in a circular motion, right below the underwear waistband line or right above the hair line on the cramping side. It only has to be massaged for moments at a time, like when you feel a cramp.

Within minutes the cramp with usually go away with kind relief. In some cases you may find after the massage, you have a heavy flow or clot that releases only for a moment.

Just Stick with the Cocktail.

Just Stick with the Cocktail.

 

Problem: Hey Tia! I was planning a “romantic” trip to the beach, but a friend told me not to do it. She said getting sand in places can cause problems. Do you have a tip to prevent that?

TipsfromTia.com, tips from Tia, sexual health tips

Tip from Tia: Hi, thanks for the question and for reading! Yes, your friend is absolutely correct. Getting sand in certain areas can wreak havoc on your balance for a long time causing reoccurring infections. When it comes to sex, you must always take responsibility, and way the heat of the moment, to the consequences.

This irritation can happen just from laying out. But, engaging in certain activities, can push sand into areas. And, if you’ve ever been in the sand, you already know, it gets everywhere.

Prevention is to keep parts covered. But…

If you get off balance from sand and sea, correcting from the inside out is the best way to go. Be sure to drink plenty of water, stay away from things with high sugar content and add in a pro-biotic.

Take a clove oil bath, 6-10 drops of oil in a bath is good. (IMPORTANT: Clove is powerful and can burn if use on it’s own. Be sure to always mix clove oil with water or another carrier oil like olive oil) Soak for at least 10 minutes to try and re-balance your chemistry. Clove is anti-bacterial,  antimicrobial and anti-fungal. Take a soak everyday, for several days to see full results. Do not use if you are allergic to cloves or if you find you become irritated by using the clove oil.

Contact your doctor immediately for further help, if symptoms don’t clear up or you are having serious issues.

The beach may sound romantic, but I would stick to the cocktail on the beach if it’s permitted, and go get your romance (“romance” isn’t usually permitted on the beach) elsewhere; a place with less chance to off balance your body. But, it’s just my opinion.

Self-Esteem Quickie.

By Tia Cristy

Self-Esteem Quickie.

Man or woman; we’ve all been guilty of picking on ourselves. Stops picking out the wrong things.

It may sound corny, but some sayings will withstand the test of time, because of the truth they hold. “Nobody can love you unless you love yourself.” And, I’m not talking about being conceded. (it’s hard to love anyone conceded.) I’m talking about looking at who you are inside and out, and loving it. The tip to being good to yourself.

Lot’s of  today’s woes got the world down, but a quick tip to a positive you, is 5 minutes a day in the mirror with your reflection. And reflecting on positive things is what you are doing. Don’t feel silly.

Start simple with what you like about yourself. It may be difficult at first but, try to pick out a physical feature. For example, you like your hair, your eyes, etc. Physical feature should be the first thing is pick out, since it’s usually the hardest for a person to do. Then once you except that, tell yourself about something good you did or something you are good at. Again this may be hard at first, but after participating in “yourself” time a few times, you will begin to feel a better outlook and confidence about yourself.

Adding in this outside project can take your self-esteem even further; look for smiles in the crowd, not faces, but smiles. Identifying happy people in your surrounding will make you a happier person.This is proven.

Smart Phones Make you Smarter? Stupid Tip of the Day:

Smart Phones Make you Smarter? Stupid Tip of the Day:

A majority of us have them. We work and play from them. But, are we connected to something that isn’t the best thing for us?

Despite the name, smart phones have allowed humans to make stupid choices. Stupid choices like, texting and driving, committing stupid crimes to video for the sake of humor and infidelity are just to name a few.

The devices have had benefits as well, being able to locate, look up and connect when being used for good can be a very good thing.

There is good and bad; like any magic, smart phones, social networking and apps come with a price. Studies have just proven the majority of subjects that devote 1 hour daily, “plugged in” dropped their I.Q. by 10 points. Those participants that spent over an hour, were close to dropping 10 points an hour. Those participants that used their smart phones for business or mindful things were less to not effected at all.

Moral of the story. Work out your brain properly. Only devote a small amount of time to social networks if possible. Stay away from mindless activities on the phone for long periods of time. And, when it comes to the kids… Schedule structured time for them to learn and interact face to face with family and peers.

There is a big difference from learning information like recipes on the internet than, scrolling through what someone ate today.
