    Ep.37 The Darkside and Downside to the Swingers Lifestyle

    EP.37

    As exciting and awesome as the rewards of swinging can be, the lifestyle does come with some real worries & risks. You should talk with your partner to see if you are both comfortable with the risks and share your worries with each other.  You want to work together when deciding if the risks are worth the potential rewards of swinging.

    To help explain the risks you may encounter in swinging, let’s think of your relationship as a car. Right now, you are driving around in your car on local roads doing the speed limit. Your car might have a few dings in it from small things, like a shopping cart bumping into it. Those are your standard vanilla fights. Most relationships can handle driving on local roads with ease. You are moving at a manageable speed with few road hazards and the occasional pothole that can be handled easily at these low speeds.

    The swinging lifestyle is like taking your car onto the highway and hitting the gas pedal.  A small pothole can become a big problem when you are doing 70mph sandwiched between SUVs and dealing with an 18-wheel tractor trailer weaving into your lane. you want to do everything you can to spot and avoid these potholes.  What potholes might you encounter in the lifestyle?

    EP.36 The New Chinadoll Advice Column/What's your issues?

    EP.36

    Taking someone else’s advice, even when you ask for it, is difficult.  Entire studies have been conducted just to understand the widespread  phenomenon of “advice discounting.”  But even as we ignore the well-intentioned suggestions of our friends,  families and therapists, many of us come back week after week to the  advice columns published by a slew of print and digital media outlets.  It’s hard to say exactly how many people read advice columns, but it’s  clear that many have built devoted followings over the years. The  workplace-focused “Ask a Manager,” for example, receives 2.4 million  visits a year and 50 questions a day, writes Alison Green, the author  behind that column for the past decade, writes in Vox. Several advice  columnists, including Green and Ask Polly’s Heather Havrilesky, have  parlayed their success into books.

    Ep 35. How to rekindle your marriage and sex life

    Ep 35. How to rekindle your marriage and sex life

    Ep.35

    There is a popular belief in the marriage and relationship world that when the doldrums hit and you find yourself more numb than really alive, you should look for ways to get back what you once had.
    Call it a spark. A zest. A passion. Whatever.
    The point is, something’s missing and since you once had it – you can go back and find it again.
    Wrong.
    Life is not lived backwards.
    Our past is important.
    Who we once were is what our spouse found attractive (since that person caught the eye of your spouse and reeled them in the rest of the way). But the previous version of you is long gone and trying to go back and find him/her is a path to more frustration.
    While you may be able to produce a brief spark by reminiscing about when you were dating, it won’t be a lasting spark.
    The main reason – you’re up against the “love drug” in your brain.
    When you first met and fell in love with your spouse you both experienced a chemically induced high. Your brain flooded with a chemical called Phenylethylamine (PEA), which remains in your brain from 6 months to 2 years. PEA produces a feeling of euphoria, a sense of belonging, and a feeling of obsession (which is why you want to talk and be with your new found love every moment).
    As PEA fades over time (and it will) many people believe that you can recreate the same levels of emotion within the relationship. Problem is, you can’t.
    You cannot go back a manufacture PEA in your brain within the same relationship (although I’m sure the pharmaceutical companies are trying to figure out a way).

    EP. 34  The many wonders and uses for the cannabis plant aka marijuana aka mary  jane 

    Today, more than 150 million people regularly smoke cannabis, making it  one of the world's most popular recreational drugs. But when and where  humans began to appreciate the psychoactive properties of weed has been  more a matter of speculation than science Cannabis, also known as hemp or marijuana, evolved about 28 million  years ago on the eastern Tibetan Plateau, according to a pollen study  published in May. A close relative of the common hop found in beer, the  plant still grows wild across Central Asia. More than 4000 years ago,  Chinese farmers began to grow it for oil and for fiber to make rope,  clothing, and paper. Cannabis can be found in various forms, and the health benefits of  cannabis is ever growing, here Tara Leo of Cali Extractions gives us an  insight regarding the diverse benefits of the plant. Cannabis contains CBD which is a chemical that impacts the brain, making  it function better without giving it a high along with THC which has  pain relieving properties. Both substances can be extracted and enhanced  for use through short path distillation. Users can get the following  health benefits of cannabis:

    EP.33 Surviving a sexless marriage /Why You’re Having Less Sex with Your Partner — How to Get Back Into It

    EP.33 Surviving a sexless marriage /Why You’re Having Less Sex with Your Partner — How to Get Back Into It

    Ep.33
    First, determine whether a sexless marriage bothers you
    What’s  essential for you and your partner, besides figuring out whether you  meet a specific frequency, is to define what sex means to each other.  Stop relying on internet stories or other couples’ experiences to  dictate what’s “normal.”
    No one, except for the individuals in the  relationship, should decide if being in a sexless partnership is  concerning. Everyone is different. If you and your partner are content  with having sex every quarter or once a year, then that’s fine.
    But  if one of you is feeling hurt from not having your sexual needs met,  then this is a sign the relationship agreement isn’t working and needs  to be modified.
    Sometimes an escalation in fantasies or actions can  be a result of feeling less intimate with your partner. For example, if  you’re starting to feel resentful and fantasizing about having sex with  your co-worker, it might be because you haven’t connected physically  with your partner for a while.
    Dr. Becker-Warner outlines other factors to consider:
    You can’t remember the last time you and your partner enjoyed sexual intimacy.
       Sexual intimacy is the last thing you want to think about, or your  heart hurts when considering the state of sexual intimacy with your  partner.
       There’s hesitancy and/or avoidance of initiating  physical touch, either because of the potential rejection or the  possibility that it’ll lead to unwanted sex.
       Other forms of intimacy (touching, love languages, etc.) are also lacking in your relationship.
       You feel disconnected from your partner.
       You feel that sex is only when the genitals (particularly the penis and penetration) are involved.

    The case of Walter McMillian -New way of looking at the death penalty

    Walter "Johnny D." McMillian (October 27, 1941 – September 11, 2013)[1] was an African-American pulpwood worker from Monroeville, Alabama, who was wrongly convicted of murder and sentenced to death. His conviction was wrongfully obtained, based on police coercion and perjury; in the 1988 trial, under a controversial doctrine called "judicial override", the judge imposed the death penalty, even though the jury imposed a sentence of life imprisonment. From 1990 to 1993, the Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals turned down four appeals; in 1993, after McMillian had served six years on Alabama's death row, the Court of Criminal Appeals reversed the lower court decision and ruled that he had been wrongfully convicted.

    The controversial case received national attention beginning in the fall of 1992, when it was featured in the CBS News program 60 Minutes. Two books have been written on the case, including Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson, which was adapted into a feature film of the same name in which Jamie Foxx portrays McMillian.
