You might not be enjoying breastfeeding because you and your partner aren’t connecting. Perhaps one or both of you think that is because of breastfeeding.I wanted this blog post to be about your partner. I want to give you some really deep insights about how your partner’s support or lack of support can really affect your level of breastfeeding enjoyment.But, I can’t. Why?

When I first heard about "Steak and Blow Job Day," I cracked up laughing. My husband of seven months insisted that this "holiday," celebrated on March 14, was a day for men to be treated special. He said that I had to cook him a steak and give him a blow job to show him my appreciation. Since these were two things I did regularly, I shrugged him off; what made March 14th any different?

Whispering lies about who you are....more

So what can you do if infertility or chronic illness has left you feeling not-so-frisky this February 14th? Here are five tips to help you celebrate and enjoy even if you're not "in the mood."
Fifty Shades of Grey comes out this weekend. I confess, I've read the whole book series, and you know what? For the most part, I liked it. Sure, it's not realistic, according to the true BDSM -ers (if you haven't checked out Fetlife.com, you don't know about serious BDSM -ers), but for us "mostly vanilla" folks, it's fun fantasy fodder (go me, with the alliteration!). I know that when I first read it, and got to the "checklist," it caused quite a frank discussion among my lady-friends and my husband....more
