What type of porn do you like?

That simple question could save us lots of trouble in the long run. If only dating could be that easy. Sexual openness has increased over the years, but talking about your boudoir kinks and favorite porn stars is taboo.

My favorite porn actor is Nacho Vidal, in case you’re wondering. Nacho is a very sexy, intelligent, ambitious entrepreneur who works in Barcelona, ​​talking about ethics and raising awareness in the pornography industry.

He also sells perfume bottles that are reliable replicas of his most alluring body part.

“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.”

Countless stories have been written about the pandemic. But there’s one teeny-tiny angle that some of you may have failed to consider: immigration.

In a year when the world stopped flying, assigning visas, and all the immigration-related offices were either closed or solely operating with a skeleton crew of essential workers, my big American dream turned into a nightmare.

This is the story of how I was trapped in the States, legally married to a U.S. resident, without having a legal permit to work or provide for myself, while being abused by his family.

We all believe that love is innate. But love, aside from being a feeling, is also a craft we often take for granted. What if I told you that you need to re-learn how to love — first yourself and then others?

Would you believe if I told you that love is more about boundaries and less about giving yourself completely and unconditionally? Rather tricky, right?

That concept was “parenting yourself.” It consists of learning how to take care of yourself “as a parental figure would” simple, right?

Let’s think about it together:

Parental figures are our main source of love, emotional stability, social interaction, and boundaries while growing up.

Have you ever been naked with a person that doesn’t seem to understand how sex works? What’s supposed to be wet is getting dryer and dryer. What’s supposed to be hard lies as defeated as the sexual desire that guided you there.

Can bad sex ruin a relationship? Of course, it can. But guess what: bad sex can be fixed. Most of the time, you can find the solution with a couple of drinks and an honest conversation.

Desire and curiosity, arousal and intrigue. There are multiple connections between great sex and amazing writing. Today we’ll explore how poorly written articles leave your readers wanting more, and not in a good way.

Especially when it comes to headlines, the possibility of using clickbait as a strategy to catch readers’ attention is one of the most common practices in the world of content.
