The Best Sexual Positions: The Top 5 Mistakes Most Guys Make

One of the many challenges men have is to decide on what positions to use when getting booty. The biggest fears are that the woman will get bored with the “same old, same old” and as a result lose interest in sex. So the question becomes, what are the best sexual positions?

The best way to explain this is to talk about what NOT to do. With that in mind, I’ll now talk about the top five mistakes guys make when it comes to sexual positions, so that way you won’t continue making them.

Position Mistake 1: Imitating anything seen in a porn movie. This is probably the biggest reason that guys fail with sexual positions. Inexperienced guys think porn is a good model because they see studs banging beautiful broads, and… well, they just don’t know any better. The problem is that sexual positions in those sorts of movies are meant to display a good scene for viewers, not to maximize pleasure for the actors.

And in fact, one of the WORST positions for clitoral and vaginal stimulation is when the woman puts her ankles on your shoulders. With her pelvis bent back that far, she can feel pain in her cervix if you push in too far. Plus it’s a position that puts pressure. (If you ever have a chance to go behind the scenes and watch the making of an adult movie, you’ll see how quickly the mood gets killed when the actress keeps having to stop the scene to go to the bathroom!)

Position Mistake 2: Trying too hard to keep your weight off the woman, in any position. To a woman, sex is a way to get closer to her man. She loves it when he leans on the underside of her thighs. So here’s a tip for you to try… Next time you’re having sex with your woman (while you’re engaged in actual intercourse, that is), get more of your weight on her. You see, during sex, almost every woman enjoys feeling her man’s body pressed hard against her.

So how much weight should you put on her? Make it enough so that after you come, and the sexual frenzy dissipates, your woman will tell you that she feels like she’s being smooshed. Of course, do this within limits! If you’re on top off her grinding her pubic bone for too long, it can feel painful for her.

But the bottom line is that many, many women like to be pressured by at least some of the man’s weight. So save the gentlemanly sex for the royal family’s women!

Position Mistake 3: Letting the woman do all the work when she’s on top. For virtually every woman, sex is mostly a passive activity. So by being the motionless beta male, you destroy the whole purpose of sex for her, which is to open herself up to you penetrating into her body.

Position Mistake 4: Being a wimp. A lot of guys have read too many “Men are From Mars”-type books and think women like it if you ask permission for everything and let them take the lead. Be the alpha male instead and just “do it.” Flip her over, move her here and there. Be aggressive and even toss her about like a rag doll when you want to change positions, and… she’ll LOVE it! And don’t worry about it. If something is going on that the woman doesn’t like, she’ll let you know.

Position Mistake 5: Thinking the trickier positions are better. You don’t need to be upside down, hanging from a lamp, and doing something crazy. Just be normal. An old standby like the missionary (man on top, woman lying on her back) can be the best sexual position.

Tricky positions are just frustrating for everybody and often kill the mood because there’s too much “where should I put my arm?”… and not enough “let’s just have fun exploring.”

The Advantages and Disadvantages of Agile Development Software Methods

Agile development software methods have certainly been the hype for software developers everywhere since 2001. There are so many different kinds of agile methods available that it’s a bit of a challenge to choose the right one for your project. The simplest way to find out would be to read up on the pros and cons of each of the three most popular methodologies, and figure out which one suits you and your project best.

1) Scrum

Developed by Jeff Sutherland and Ken Schwaber, this method involves one or more small teams (composed of a ScrumMaster, a Product Owner, and a development team) that work together to complete a project based on a list of tasks that are arranged according to priority. They do this by dividing the list into shorter ones that will be completed within a “sprint”, or a set period of development that lasts from 2-4 weeks. While this is one of the most popular agile development software methods because of its simplicity, the problem with it is that most programmers find it necessary to integrate other methodologies to cover for additional practices that fall outside of agile scrum.

2) Dynamic Systems Development Method (DSDM)

DSDM is an agile method that has multiple variations, but the most recent and popular version of it is the DSDM Atern method. This method focuses primarily on projects that have tight schedules and budgets, and adheres to eight main principles:

• Focus on what the business needs

• Deliver work on time

• Collaborate effectively

• Never, ever compromise quality

• Build the project incrementally using solid foundations

• Develop the project iteratively

• Continuously communicate with clarity

• Demonstrate control

Because of its strictness and eight principles, the main problem with DSDM Atern is that it can be restrictive and difficult to work with compared to other agile development software methods.

3) Extreme Programming (XP)

XP, developed by Kent Beck, is a methodology is somewhat similar to Scrum in that it “timeboxes” or uses short development cycles throughout the entire process. This helps reduce costs compared to having one lengthy process, and helps keep the project dynamic and adaptable. This method makes use of four activities:

• Coding – where the program or software is actually coded

• Testing – where the product created through Coding is tested

• Listening – where the developers listen to the needs and suggestions that the clients or customers point out after Testing

• Designing – where developers organize and design the system’s logic based on their experiences from the first three activities

This agile development software method is popular for its more laid back and non-restrictive method, but is highly criticized for its lack of a solid structure since everything is mostly done on-the-fly without any prior planning.

Based on the pros and cons listed above, you probably have a good idea which method to go for now. If you want something done in a more disciplined fashion while still adhering to the agile concept of speed, go for DSDM Atern. If you feel that the project will benefit from a more laid-back sort of process that allows your development team to take the wheel and gives them freedom to be creative, go for XP or Scrum. If none of these three methods appeal to you, don’t fret – there’s a large number of other agile development software methodologies out there to choose from; it’s all a matter of finding the method that caters to your project’s needs.

Curling Iron Vs Hot Rollers

The use of curling iron dates back to years as they have been successfully tested on different hair types so far. Hair curlers of different brands, styles, features and prices are available to choose from the best one suited according to the different hair types. Women who are blessed with amazingly straight hair may occasionally cherish to get their hair curled with that sexy bouncing springs. The irons have given the opportunity to such people who wish to curl their hair occasionally to acquire the desired style quickly at home. The modern devices available today come with so many features and built-in accessories such as removable brushes, misters, steam etc. Depending upon the texture, length and thickness of your hair, you can choose the one that fit the correct barrel size fitted for your hair. Choosing the right barrel size is highly important if you wish to bring out the optimum result after styling your hair. Hair curlers that range from one quarter to almost three inches diameter are available to choose from.

Hot rollers have also been used by many and that was mostly before the introduction of the curling irons. Even though both of them serve for the same purpose, both hold certain points of advantages and disadvantages. We can discus some of them here. When compared to hot rollers, the irons offer versatility in styling as you can accomplish any type of curls that you wish on your hair. By attaching the suitable barrel, you can create either tight, spiral curls or loose wavy curls as required. You can also finish the task much quickly as compared to hot rollers. People who do not want their hair to be subjected to high heat of the curling iron mostly make use of these hot rollers that too too come in different sizes and colors to choose from. The method of application of both of them differs. The hair curled with curling device can retain the style for longer and it takes more time for curling the hair with the hot rollers. When the older models of hot roller used to create tangles on the hair, the advancement of new technology enables the use of hot roller free of tangles. Hair curlers are also lightweight and can be transported while traveling.

Characteristics of Bad Public Speakers

Congratulations! You’ve set your sights on a lofty goal, being one of the worst public speakers imaginable. It will take a while and require a lot of practice, but if you do your best at being the worst, soon nobody will want to hear you speak in public. Follow these simple rules, and you’ll soon develop a reputation as one of the worst public speakers around!

1) Mumble and Speak Softly: Good public speakers want their messages to be clear and precise, easy for listeners to follow, so in order to be the worst you need to be as incomprehensible as possible. Mumble when you talk and speak softly, so that none of your listeners can hear what you say or understand your words. If even the front row of your listeners has to lean in to hear you, you’re doing a great job.

2) Avoid Eye Contact: The last thing you want to do is look at the audience; they might mistakenly understand something you’ve said, or at least think that you genuinely want to connect with them. Instead, look almost every place else; the ceiling, your shoes, the walls, or behind you, away from the audience (perfect if you have a chalkboard or white board to stare at the whole time). As long as you are looking somewhere other than towards the audience, they’ll get the clue that you’re really not interested in them.

3) Move Constantly While Speaking: Whether it’s a simple nervous twitch or full blown pacing up and down the stage or other public speaking area, you want to make sure that you never stop moving. Not simply walking calmly or making a few hand gestures either; you want to be moving frantically and unpredictably, one minute circling the stage, the next minute waving your arms around randomly. At no point do you want your movements to have anything to do with what you are talking about; the less sense your actions make, the better.

4) Don’t Practice Beforehand: The very first time you say your speech should be when you are on stage, looking at an eager audience who expect you to talk like a professional. Even if you are an expert on the speech material (and why would you give a speech on something you know when you’re trying to give a bad speech?), if you don’t practice what you want to say, you’ll be sure to struggle with the speech, making long pauses as you try to find the words you’re seeking, and fill the speech with ums and ahs.

5) Don’t Write Down Your Speech: While we’re on the subject, you definitely don’t want to write down your speech or any notes about what you want to say. If you have notes, you might stay on track with your speech, covering the material you wanted to cover, and generally staying on track. If you do keep papers on you during your speech (perfect for if you need something to look at rather than your audience), make them random and unorganized, flip through them at regular intervals, and read the most boring and irrelevant parts throughout your speech.

There you go; if you want to be a horrible, atrocious, and downright bad public speaker, all you need to do is to follow these simple rules, and you’ll be widely known as the worst speaker by anyone in your audience. Keep it up for a few speeches, and nobody will ever ask you to speak again! (Or, you could do the exact opposite of what this article says, and you’ll end up giving a fairly solid, well liked speech. Why you would want to do that, I don’t know, but the possibility is there if you want.)

The Vegas Guide for Girls’ Night Out

So my wife’s girlfriend is getting married, and was asking around about cool bachelorette party ideas in Vegas, so that her troupe of “girls only, boys out” can go for the weekend. In this situation, well, of course I have to think carefully before I answer, because whatever my suggestions are, my wife will be going too, as part of the girl troupe. So I sat down and ran a list of places that offer clean and good fun (keeping in mind to cancel the spots where I could imagine hairy chest men with heavy cologne trying to hit on my wife). Here are my top suggestions for a weekend to remember for the soon-to-be bride before her wedding day:

For an action-packed weekend: When you think of surrendering your single status for the rest of your life, it’s natural that you have some fears or doubts on whether you’re doing the right thing, whether the person you choose is the right one. The fears and doubts cause you to be cautious, uptight even. Do not be afraid, for it’s perfectly natural to have these feelings. It’s how you manage the feelings that will affect you wedding planning. So why not let it all out? The Stratosphere Hotel offers you a chance to scream and let loose your inhibitions when you try their thrilling rides. A note of warning – this party is definitely not for the weak-hearted.

For a sizzling hot weekend: Watch six-pack abs men strut their stuff in different types of costumes that will sure fulfill every woman’s fantasies, from dashing doctors and heroic firemen, to muscular captains and sexy soldiers. From the producers of Flamingo’s “X” Burlesque, these Men of “X” will perform sensual choreography with their bodies that will surely leave the ladies hot and wanting for more. Expect to dance along to the music, as the Men of “X” move around the showroom to interact intimately with the ladies. Catch this show from Wednesdays through Sundays at Hooters Casino Hotel from 8pm onwards. For General Admission, the tickets are priced at $34.99, but I’d suggest you go for the VIP seating. It costs only $10 more, and you get special attention from the guys.

For a party-till-you-drop weekend: Nobody does it like the Hard Rock Hotel. World-renowned Deejays and celebrity guests will guarantee that you will party from sunrise till sundown, and beyond. Join thousands of rich and beautiful revelers in one of the best poolside parties you will ever find. Go ahead and book that private cabana just for your group and party away like Katy Perry did at her bachelorette party, right there at Rehab.

There you go ladies – my personal suggestions on cool ideas for a weekend bachelorette party. I’ve personally attended quite a few bachelors’ parties in Vegas myself, and I can safely say that if you do it the proper way, you won’t have any regrets later in life. I wish all the ladies out there who are having your own bachelorette parties a fun time away from your partners!

Owning a Pet Otter

It may seem trendy to own an exotic pet, but owning an otter as a pet is illegal in most localities without a permit. They are considered wildlife and have requirements that are different from those of the average household pet.

Reasons Not to Own a Pet Otter

If you are considering applying for a permit to own a pet otter, here are some reasons why you may not want to. Of course, if you work at a zoo or wildlife sanctuary, then these reasons won’t concern you as much.

Otters Bite

Otters have very sharp teeth, and they bite.

Otters Spray

Otters have a musky scent and spray very much like a skunk’s spray. They are definitely not inside animals.

Otters are Nocturnal

They like to hunt for food at night, and the last sound you need at night while you are trying to sleep is that of an otter splashing in your swimming pool.

Otters Need to Be Near a River

Otters like to hunt fish in a river and can eat lots of food in a day. Chances are, you don’t have secure access to a river.

Otters Learn Survival Skills from Their Mother

Otters need to learn how to survive from their mother. Their mother teaches them these skills up to 18 months of age.

Caring for an Otter

Once you have a permit for your otter, there are some special requirements that you will have to consider.

Water for Swimming and Food

Otters spend the majority of their time in the water. They like to live in very cold water, and they have a high metabolic rate to keep them warm. They can even hold their breath under water for up to 10 minutes. They are playful creatures that like to hunt for fish and eat lots of shellfish, frogs, sea urchins and invertebrates.

However, because you are keeping them in an unnatural enclosure, these foods will have to be introduced. Otters eat 15-25 percent of their body weight a day, and that’s a lot of fish. In the wild, they can spend up to five hours a day hunting for food. They can grow to be 100 pounds in weight, so plan on supplying them with lots of food each day.

Mating Season Behavior

Otters can get very aggressive in the mating season so you have to make sure that household pets or other animals are not in the vicinity because an otter will drag an animal into the water and eat it.

By whatever means you obtained a baby otter and want to raise it yourself (don’t go near an adult otter), you can see there is more to caring for a pet otter than meets the eye. For your own sake and the sake of the otter, why not hand it over to the authorities who will know what to do with it for its survival.

Outercourse – A Guide to Non Penetrative Sex (NPS)

The first thing that has to be established when talking about outercourse is what it actually is. When I deal with outercourse, I refer to it as an alternative to intercourse that does not involve vaginal penetration. It is also known as Non-Penetrative Sex (NPS). This definition is not perfect as some people consider oral sex to not be outercourse, however it is the definition of outercourse I will use here.

Recently there has been a move towards outercourse being used as an alternative to intercourse for young people. While it is better that young people practice NPS than risk pregnancy by having sex unprepared, the practice usually leads to intercourse so it does not act as anything more than a temporary solution.

While many people consider outercourse to be a kind of foreplay, this is a limiting definition. In fact outercourse can be as satisfying as intercourse. Some people even view it as the highlight of the sex act. Therefore do not limit yourself by just thinking of it as foreplay, consider it as another tool for both of your sexual satisfaction!

Performing Outercourse: Guide to the Outercourse Orgasm

Outercourse comes in many different kinds, however there are a few major kinds:

* Dry hump grind: This is simulated sex using a layer of clothing to prevent penetration. Usually it is done in the underwear as it is easy to damage yourself on zippers (Believe me!) if done incorrectly. Mixing grinding and thrusting is the easiest way to make this great for your woman.

* The hand: There are countless ways to use your hand to stimulate your partner. In fact some techniques such as female squirting orgasm, as easier to do using your hands. The clitoris and G-spot are usually the easiest places to aim for, but the AFE and Deep Spot are also areas you should consider targeting.

* Breast play: There are a number of ways that a man can have an outercourse orgasm (Or give one) using a woman’s breasts. Usually the nipples are the most sensitive part of the breast, so by focusing on them with teases, licking, squeezing and light twisting it is possible for her to have an outercourse orgasm from this. Many guys also push the breasts together, using lotion to use them as a ‘vagina.’

* The legs: There are almost intimate erotic potential in the legs. For the woman, you can rub her clitoris with your thigh to give her a different kind of thrill. She can also stimulate you by clamping your penis between her thighs (Interfemoral intercourse). The guy wants to be careful to use lots of lotion and not to ejaculate onto the vagina as this is easy to do from this position. Other parts that can be used for an outercourse orgasm include her feet by putting them together. This leaves a gap that can be used and the Japanese traditional authors have written odes to the pleasures of this kind of sex. Her calves can also be used although this is tricky.

* The buttocks: Sex using the buttocks has the title of intergluteal sex. This is not anal sex as no penetration of the anus occurs. Instead the man clenches his penis between her buttocks for a different kind of thrill.

* The labia: This can be a great foreplay or a way to give genital-to-genital contact without penetration. Here the man angles his penis so that it runs the length of the labia. The woman can then rub up and down for a different kind of thrill.

* Oral sex. Some people consider this to be outercourse. This involves using your tongue or lips on the clitoris and labia.

Outercourse Tips

Outercourse like many kinds of sex needs variety to be a big part of your sex life. Therefore you will want to make sure that you keep varying it to keep things exciting. Consider it an extra technique and even if you enjoy intercourse, mixing it with outercourse offers infinite possibilities for great sex where every part of your bodies becomes filled with erotic potential.

Foods That Cause Acne

The embarrassing condition of acne has been blamed on a wide variety of causes throughout the ages. Many people unjustly blame individuals with acne-prone skin of being dirty or failing to wash their faces properly. This is obviously far from the truth as acne can strike anyone, regardless of their personal hygiene habits. Others believe that eating large amounts of chocolate will ensure an acne breakout. This is also not the case, but research has linked acne to choices a person’s diet. We are going to discuss some types of foods that cause acne.

Foods that are highly acidic tend to cause acne as they create an imbalance in your body’s pH levels. The foods you should avoid include the following:

  • Vegetables: lentils, squash, corn
  • Fruits: currants, plums, prunes, cranberries and blueberries
  • Grains: barley, cornstarch, oatmeal, wheat bran, amaranth, rice, rye, wheat germ, noodles, macaroni, spaghetti, bread, soda crackers, white flour, rolled oats and wheat flour
  • Beans & Legumes: chick peas, green peas, kidney beans, pinto beans, red beans, soy beans, black beans and white beans
  • Dairy Products: butter, ice cream, processed cheese, butter and ice milk
  • Nuts & Butters: peanuts, pecans, walnuts, cashews and peanut butter
  • Animal Proteins: bacon, beef, pork, salmon, lamb, fish, clams, cod, mussels, sausage, scallops, turkey, venison, shrimp and lobster
  • Fats & Oils: canola oil, lard, olive oil, sesame oil, sunflower oil, hemp seed oil and safflower oil
  • Sweeteners: corn syrup, sugar and carob
  • Alcohol: spirits, hard liquor, wine and beer
  • Condiments: vinegar, pepper, ketchup and mustard
  • Drinks: coffee and soft drinks
  • Drugs & chemicals: aspirin, pesticides, tobacco and herbicides

If you want to prevent or minimize acne breakouts, you should replace acidic food with alkaline food choices. Some examples include carrots, cucumbers, garlic, lettuce, tomatoes, apples, grapes, lemons, pineapples, raisins, strawberries, peaches, oranges and almonds. You may be surprised to see so many citrus fruits on this list. The reason is that the specific citric acid they each contain has an alkalinizing effect on your body that will actually reduce the level of acidity, rather than increase it.

Rather than making an effort to avoid one specific type of food, it is better to avoid groups of acidic foods that will enhance your acne. Replace some of the choices in the first list with more alkaline foods from the second list. You will soon discover that small changes in your diet can produce big results!
