Cupid's Countdown Cocktails & Mocktails

Helllloooo! sorry for the delay vinglers but busy day with my baby. Here are a few romantic inspired drinks to help set the mood for Valentines Day. First up a mocktail that I like to enjoy & in a pretty shade of pink. * Two parts pink lemonade *One part sprite or 7up (diet if you prefer) *A squeeze of mandarin juice *Ice *Lemon peel Place some ice in a cocktail shaker, add the pink lemonade, sprite or 7up, and mandarin juice, and shake well. Strain into a martini glass ( or substitute with decorative glass of your choice ) and add additional ice if required. Garnish glass with a lemon peel.
And now for the alcohol... Cherry Vodka This pretty drink has a reputation as an aphrodisiac also in a romantic shade of pink. *One part fresh lime juice *One part cherry liqueur *Two parts vodka *Maraschino cherry *Crushed ice Place a spoon of crushed ice in a cocktail shaker and add the lime juice, cherry liqueur and vodka. Shake well and strain into a small cocktail glass, and decorate with a maraschino cherry.
Fuzzy Navel The Fuzzy Navel is a rather fun little drink. *One part vodka *One part peach schnapps or peach brandy *Six parts of fresh orange juice *Twist of orange zest *Ice cubes Pour the vodka, peach schnapps or peach brandy and the orange juice into a cocktail shaker with some ice cubes. Shake well and strain into tall glasses, decorating each one with a twist of orange zest.
This last one can be easily made into a mocktail by avoiding the use of vodka & it still tastes great! Bloody Ceaser This is an old favorite and one of the world's best known cocktails. In a rather holiday appropriate shade of red. *The juice of one lemon *A generous helping of vodka ( or not if doing mocktail version ) *4 to 6oz of Clamato juice depending on taste *A sprinkling of black pepper *A few drops of Tabasco *A squirt of Worcestershire sauce *Ice cubes *Clamato rimmer *Stick of celery ( optional ) Dampen the rim of a whisky glass with lemon juice and dip it into a saucer of Clamato rimmer. Place four ice cubes in a cocktail shaker and add the lemon juice, vodka and Clamato juice. Shake well. Trickle a few drops of Tabasco and a squirt of Worcestershire sauce into a whiskey glass and swirl it around to coat the inside. Strain the cocktail or mocktail into the glass and grind a sprinkling of black pepper over it. If you have one, you can add a stick of celery as an edible stirrer. I hope this helps to inspire everyone to enjoy their Valentines Day single or not.

The Best Anal Sex Toys for Butt Beginners
Wand attachments Have you got yourself a magic wand already or a similar wand vibrator compatible with wand attachments? Try an insertable attachment for anal pleasure. Le Wand offers several insertable wand attachments, including prostate stimulation, for their full-size and miniature wands. If you love the intensity of the wand vibrations, this is a great butt play option, especially if you aren't ready to invest in a vibrating anal toy. For prostate stimulation The prostate, a walnut-size gland located about 2 inches up the anal canal in people with penises, is a central pleasure point. When stimulated, it can intensify penile orgasms and potentially induce prostate orgasms. Butt plugs anal sex toy, dildos, wand attachments, you name it: If it can go in your butt, then there are probably variations for folks with prostates that are shaped to provide prostate stimulation specifically. For the kink curious Hooks Hooks, while they can be a lot of fun, aren't for the faint of heart. They're usually made of stainless steel and feature a sphere or ball shape at the tip of the insertable end. They aren't necessarily designed to be comfortable but rather to make the wearer adapt their movement and position to wear it comfortably or promote pleasure. The non inserted end usually has a loop, like this one, for someone else to hold and direct the wearer. If you're into BDSM at all, this should be on your radar! Tunnel plugs Picture a typical butt plug but with a hollowed-out middle. That's a tunnel plug. Some people like to wear them for aesthetics, while others prefer to wear them during anal penetration. Tunnel plugs keep the anus stretched, which may make penetration more accessible for folks who don't enjoy the sensation of continual stretching and contracting. LovePlugs offers a variety of tunnel plugs, like this one. Tail plugs Tail plugs are a fun variety of anal plugs for folks who want to experiment with a bit of anthropomorphic fun. If the animal has a tail, there's probably a tail plug replica to be had. Some of the more popular realistic options include fox, cat, and bunny tails. Although these plugs are often available in silicone, glass or stainless steel option may be best — unless you don't mind if the hair sticks to the silicone and hitches a ride inside your bum. Optional sexcessories Starter kits and training kits New to strap-on anal sex or pegging? Starter kits are a perfect option. Strap-on starter kits, like the Tantus Bend Over Beginner and the Sportsheets Anal Explorer, come with one or two small-ish, usually plain and smooth, silicone dildos and a compatible harness. Training kits, like this one from b-Vibe, are for folks interested in anal training. Anal training involves using butt plugs of gradually increasing size to prepare your anus for comfortable penetration. Training kits often come with a lube shooter (for dispensing lube into the anal canal) and a primary douche, like this one from b-Vibe. Lubes When it comes to anal play, lube is a nonnegotiable part of the equation. That's because, unlike the vagina, the anus doesn't self-lubricate. If you're playing with silicone toys or latex condoms, use a thick aloe- or water-based lube, like Sliquid Sassy or Tush Cush. If there are no condoms involved, you can use oil-based lube. Cult-favourite, The Butters Lube, is a thick, luscious solution perfect for those who like to explore the backdoor with toys and fingers. A note, though: If you're prone to acne on your butt or worried about staining your sheets, skip oil-based lubes. (Oil-based lubes can trap bacteria and may lead to breakouts or infections.) Arousal oils If you're new to anal play, you might be interested in trying a CBD arousal oil like the Foria Awaken or Quim Smooth Operator. Both are lauded for their muscle-relaxing and blood-circulating properties. It's important to note that although CBD arousal oils are often labelled as "lube," they shouldn't be used in place of regular lube. Be sure to use these with your usual lube option. Enemas and wipes If you want to prepare downstairs and clean things out with a little douching, doing so is safe as long as you use water or saline enema solution and don't douche too often. You can grab a single-use fleet enema at any drugstore, or you can purchase a simple douche at most sex shops, like this one from Lovehoney. If you'd instead opt for something speedier, a thorough clean with a baby wipe or an intimate wipe should suffice like these wipes from Royal! Suppositories Yup, you read that right: Feel-good pills for your bum! Anal CBD suppositories, like the ones from Mello and Foria, are another way to rev things up for your rear end. Suppositories are inserted deep inside the anal canal, where the CBD dissolves and is absorbed by the body. The bottom line When it comes to toying around in your tush, there's something for everybody. Just remember to use plenty of lube, go at your own pace, and relax! And if you want more tips, check out our articles on anal masturbation and anal orgasms.
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder - Unravel Trauma Associated PTSD
Untangle Trauma Associated Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder “There is a pain — so utter — It swallows substance up — Then covers the Abyss with Trance — So Memory can step Around — across — upon it — As one within a Swoon — Goes safely — where an open eye — Would drop Him — Bone by Bone –“ (Emily Dickinson) This sonnet is a favored acknowledgment of trauma over anything you'll find in learning resources. What sees a trauma from other terrible occasions is that it is an occurrence that is anguishing to the point that recollecting that it isn't unexpected. People with post-traumatic stress disorder have extensive, upsetting pieces of information and sensations about the horrifying events that continue long after it has occurred. Their mind does all that it can to deal with the memory or redirect itself from it. They do everything they can to avoid exposing the terrible misery; the worry is that comprehending the precise extent of the trauma would be outrageous, ultimately damaging. Individuals with post-traumatic stress disorder may evade circumstances or people that can assist in the thought of the bothersome occurrence. Similarly, they may have absurd, horrible reactions to innocuous things like loud disturbances or sudden occurrences. Trauma: A Basic Guide In any case, escaping the trauma never works for a considerable, sufficient period, which equitably shows as infuriating memories, awful dreams, and obliterating perspective and anxiety characteristics. Now, the smallest, yet in any case primitive, DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) clarification for trauma is undergoing substantial or undermined end, critical trauma, or sexual viciousness in (someplace almost one) of the going with ways: Undergoing the irksome event(s) undeviatingly. Comprehending, exceptionally close, the event(s) as it unfurled to others. Finding that the shocking event(s) happened to a close-by relative or dear accessory. Struggling, a tedious or unpredictable vulnerability to the terrible torments of appalling events. Two Important Scenarios to Consider There are two things to remind here: The first is that it isn't just events of most extreme risk, in any case, sexual remorselessness similarly can be ruinous. The second is that bound to being the casualty of trauma or appropriately acknowledging it, finding in regards to a shocking scene, including a mate or relative, can correspondingly have impressive psychiatric outcomes. Additionally, a perceived phenomenon among psychiatrists and behavioral experts is individualized trauma: underlined exposure to horrendous conditions or unpleasant recollections can similarly trigger PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder)- like adverse ramifications. The Occurrence of PTSD: Assessments study post-traumatic stress disorder to influence 6-8 percent of adult people over their lifetime. Women are, on various occasions in every practical sense, more grounded than men to enable the hardship, with a pace of typically 10%. As illustrated by research, up to 70% of American adults have seen a terrifying occurrence once, with usually 20% having post-traumatic stress disorder. PTSD is an under-explored condition for a few reasons. People enduring signs will generally legitimize what they are encountering as a "typical reaction" to a dreadful occurrence and keep on doing as such in any event when months have passed with no help. Additionally, as with other psychological illnesses, people widely confounded post-traumatic stress disorder. Hollywood conventionalizes outstanding flashbacks and horrifying, agitating impacts consistently emerge in the prominent inventive mind. As a matter of fact, an extensive number of people with PTSD experience "concealing" troublesome effects, which are signs that the patient altogether fights, yet doesn't have any obvious "externalizing" introductions. So how might one see attributes of post-traumatic stress disorder inside yourself and in others? Aspects of PTSD The simplest spot to begin is with the ordinary aspects, which are furthermore the DSM-5's illustrative models. Recollections of Events Unvarying contemplations or psychiatric depicts of the hastening appalling event, the event, outrageous ghastly dreams, dissociative reactions, surrendered psychological distress. Hyperarousal Aspect of PTSD Hypervigilance or comprehensive alertness (ceaselessly looking at the natural variables for risks, "noticing things" each time you leave behind your home) Lacking sufficient sleep or Insomnia Nuisance Scorn To release up, individuals use alcohol and different drugs Evading Situations People having post-traumatic stress disorder, at first, move away from individuals, experiences, conversations, or motion pictures/shows that help one with reminding the trauma. This may, at long last, induce being introspective and avoiding any personal association. Behavioral Change Incapacitate or altogether unfriendly contemplations, especially about the future, blaming others for one's inclinations, feeling isolated from others/slowed down, and involvement in regular activities and relaxation exercises has dimmed. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Treatment Options PTSD can cause extensive risk that, at whatever point left untreated, achieves annihilating impedances in friendly and work-related activity, which can induce declined work rate, marriage struggle, outright severity, and implosion. While there are no snippets of data on shut suicides, it is outlined that one-fourth of people with post-traumatic stress disorder seek suicide. Psychotherapy and Pharmaceuticals Psychiatrists used drugs and psychotherapy to address post-traumatic stress disorder. Psychiatrists have shown that a mix of remedy, and treatment is productive overall than either framework exclusively. The best quality level for antidepressants is those that sway the neurochemical serotonin working. Patients should ingest these medications under the directives of an expert who can change assessments and take a gander at limiting impacts. While there is a wide level of psychotherapy pushes toward that can be used to treat post-traumatic stress disorder, the two with the best insistence from clinical fundamentals are Trauma-designated Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) & Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) appropriately. Individual treatment may not be reasonable enough for unequivocal people, consequently, a lot of group therapies and care get-togethers may be extraordinary. The experience of concentrating on others who are undergoing a comparable reality and can relate to you assists individuals with feeling less disengaged from their emotional anguish. Trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are considerable emotional matters; patients ought not to excuse PTSD qualities, and specialists can undoubtedly sort treatment out at whatever point clearly early. Experts have set up a few post-traumatic stress disorder treatment schemes. In any case, reasonable direction and self-demand are basic methods of overcoming horrible occasions.
