Sex Tip – Recognizing Mood Killers

If porn movies were to be believed, every man’s penis jumps to a massive erection at the slightest cause and is impervious to mood killers of any sort. Here’s a little sex tip that more women need to know: The penis is actually far more moody than one might think. True, when its owner practices sensible penis care, it’s generally in a “can do” state – but that doesn’t mean certain mood killers can’t cause his confident façade to falter.

What are some of these mood killers that turn a raging hard-on into a sleepy softy?

Infantilizing the organ.
A penis likes to be appreciated for his manliness and virility. When the luscious woman he’s about to bring pleasure to is talking about him, he wants her to use the appropriate language: “massive,” “amazing” and “awe-inspiring” are adjectives that readily come to mind that are much appreciated by a peppy member. “Cute,” “sweet” and “adorable,” on the other hand, are not. Their use leads to the quick deflating of a formerly swollen member.

Making comparisons.
Guys tend to be competitive and like to know that they have come out on top in any contest. This is especially true when talking about a man’s sexual performance and/or manhood. A sex tip to always remember: It’s never a good idea to negatively compare what a man is currently doing, or anything about his penis, with another man’s performance or endowment while engaged in sexual activity. (Talking about this another time is fair game, but not in the heat of the moment.) It’s even risky to make a positive comparison when a guy is hard at work; it may trigger a fear that he has to keep performing at this level or lose in the “who’s the better lover” contest with your past partners.

Waiting too long.
It’s a general rule of thumb: If a penis is hard, it generally would like a release. Now, guys walk around with boners all day and learn to live with it. However, if a woman is actively rubbing a guy’s crotch with the intention of generating tumescence and then disappears for 10 minutes, it creates a difficult situation: If the firmness starts to diminish, should the guy keep stroking in order to keep it ready for a return? He’s going to get nervous and anxious, worrying whether he will be able to keep it standing at attention – and that can lead to a fast fade.

Being too schedule-oriented.
It’s nice for a man to know that he’s going to have sex in the bedroom on Wednesday and Saturday at 11:15. He likes having something to look forward to. But he also likes a little surprise, the occasional quickie on an off-night or getting it on in the kitchen or the car or under the stars. Being too rigid can result in boredom and/or resentment – neither of which is good for fulfilling sex.

Odors.
Women don’t appreciate a man whose breath reeks of garlic; neither do men like this in a woman. A slight sexy musk scent can be attractive on a woman’s body, but sweat is another thing altogether – as is an excessively strong perfume. The olfactory senses can be very important to successful sexual encounters. When the nose is assaulted with unpleasant sensations, the penis reacts by losing interest.

A related sex tip: Men also need to pay attention to odors and other health issues, including penis health. Using a first-class penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) helps to offset mood killers that he may bring to the bed. For example, strong penis odor is a big complaint of many women. A crème loaded with vitamin A, which has potent anti-bacterial properties, can help significantly. And one with natural moisturizers like Shea butter and vitamin E can help take care of dry or flaky penis skin or other dermatological matters so that the equipment looks strong and appealing.

Advantages And Disadvantages Of Universal Health Care

What will universal health care cost us and what will be get from it?

The costs of the new health insurance and health care system will include increased taxes. In some ways, it won’t matter who pays those taxes. If they are paid by corporations, they will raise the price tags of the goods and services they sell, so the individuals will be hurt as well. If they are paid by the consumer, then the consumer will have less to pay for goods and services, so the corporations will be hurt as well.

When we look at the cost of any socialized medicine proposal, we should also look at the price of the existing health care system to make comparisons. In today’s medical system, those of us who can pay for national health care subsidize those who can’t or won’t. The exact amount is uncertain, but your health insurance premiums are higher because your provider has to raise the rates for those who do pay to make up for those who don’t pay.

The costs of our existing health insurance and health care system include the cost of lower productivity when a worker is unable to work because of a medical condition he or she can’t afford to treat. The costs of our present system include the costs associated with more children growing up without a father of mother.

One of the benefits or the present day system is our familiarity with it. It’s like an old car that has a broken driver’s door and a big gash in the passenger seat. We’ve gotten used to getting in the car from the passenger side and having a blanket over the gash in the seat. Another car will have problems as well. The car may be better or worse. That part is unknown. What is known is that the car will be unfamiliar and buying a car is a big commitment.

Once we make major changes to our health care system we will be unlikely to go back to the old medical system. Even if the new system is decidedly worse, we will be stuck with it. We may have higher price tags or worse care. We may be able to tweak the new system and fix it or we may determine that the infrastructure is so poor that it too requires an overhaul.

National health care has the potential of boosting our economy. Many people who are currently shackled to their employers because of the fear of losing their health insurance, may be able to move on to better jobs or start companies and hire others.

Under the present day medical system many people are unable to pay for preventative care. They often wind up in the hospital and get expensive surgeries that they can’t afford to pay for. These surgeries may extend their lives, but may or may not allow them to work again. An individual who gets medical care when the problem is a small one may be able to work and pay taxes much longer than the individual who only gets care when the situation is critical.

We should strive to create a system that keeps our workers working longer and our parents parenting longer.

Although we may have a health care system that is broken, there is no guarantee that a new health insurance and health care system will be any better. However, far too many people are hurt by the present day health insurance and health care system for us to just throw up our hands and do nothing. If we can ignore the rhetoric and focus on the facts a better medical system can be created that will not only benefit the uninsured, but will make us all stronger.

5 Incredible Facts About Medicine Of The Ancient Romes

In the ancient world, the Greeks and Romans were brothers. There was the obvious close proximity of the two countries. However, their relationship was deeper than that. In fact, their cultures were so closely linked that the Greeks and Romans shared gods with different names, but similar backgrounds! However, both groups maintained a unique history and culture. For instances, here are some of the highlights about ancient Roman medicine:

1. Doctors were vital to the Roman Empire

The Roman’s Empire’s public health system was actually quite broad. While doctors in ancient Rome could receive formal training, here are some other interesting facts about them:

• Anyone in ancient Rome could refer to himself or herself as a “doctor.”
• Doctors would often serve as surgeons in the Roman Empire’s army.
• Several female doctors existed.
• Women typically served the healthcare needs of other women.
• Doctors provided free healthcare services, to those living in impoverished towns.

2. Much of Roman medicine was Greek medicine

The Roman defeated the Greeks, in the former’s formation of the Roman Empire. Afterwards, Roman doctors then accepted many of the ideas that the Greeks had, concerning medicine. In fact, most of the doctors who were practicing in the Roman Empire–were Greek! Furthermore, the works of Hippocrates, the Greek “Father of Medicine,” served as the basis for numerous Roman doctors’ training.

3. The Romans focused on public health

Obviously, the Romans were unaware of bacteria, and the use of cheap urbane scrubs to reduce their transmission. However, the Romans placed an emphasis on public health. Improvement in personal hygiene would ultimately improve public health and reduce diseases’ occurrence.

4. Rome further developed the Greek’s theories about medicines

The Romans adhered to many of the beliefs of the Greeks, about maintaining the health of humans. For instance, they focused on the importance of cleanliness and exercise. This was due to the Romans’ borrowing theories from the Greek, Hippocrates. A second century AD Greek doctor, Galen, was instrumental in developing these theories. Galen further developed Hippocrates’ notion that human bodies contained four “humours.”

5. Galen influenced both Roman and European medicine

In addition to affecting Roman medicine, Galen also influenced European medicine for more than 15 centuries! His theories and practices focused on obtaining a balance of the four humours, which he believed were inside human bodies.

The Romans would obtain advice from their doctors, while also presenting offers to various Roman gods, such as the Roman goddess of safety–Salus. Interestingly, during the 3rd century BC, this god became linked to Hygieia–the Greek goddess related to healing. Furthermore, the Romans also used Temples of Asclepius, which had originated from the Greeks.

While the Romans were not as innovative as the Greeks were, in the study of medicine, the former certainly contributed to the development of Greek concepts related to medicine. Ultimately, the Romans improved humans’ overall understanding of hygiene and health, which is noteworthy. After conquering the Greeks, the Romans would contribute to humans’ epic war on bacteria!
