Gender & Creativity: Does Our Gender Affect Our Perceived Creativity

Creativity plays a pivotal role in all aspects of life: school, careers, friendships, and even romantic relationships. Thinking outside the box often leads others to view you as unique and memorable, not just in the arts but in any field.

The Difference Between Vaginal Moisturizer and Lube

A vaginal moisturizer is a great option for women who are experiencing ongoing discomfort due to vaginal dryness or are experiencing painful intercourse and looking for the ability to be more spontaneous without the associated pain or discomfort. Unlike a vaginal lubricant, a vaginal moisturizer can be applied regularly and should be applied at least 2 hours prior to sex, rather than right before as you would with a lubricant. A vaginal moisturizer aims to replenish vaginal moisture and relieve ongoing discomfort experienced with vaginal dryness.

Playing with Ice: Sensation Play

Getting caught up in the same routine can be great, as repetition reads results (or better orgasms) – or so workout instructors say but mixing it up with temperature play can add some serious heat in the bedroom… or bathroom, or kitchen. Starting slow, and getting to know your body and its limits can be enjoyable as well as a well-needed twist to your sex life. Ice play can be ideal no matter the weather outside, so don’t get cold feet.
