Welcome To The Smart Sex Movement.

It has begun! Something really big is here and has been getting big for quite some time now. Whether you are Straight, Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Transgender, Bigender, Pangender, Gender Fluid
, Androgynous
, Genderqueer, Transexual or one of the 50 different types of gender identifications Facebook and others sites offer, we are excited to have you join us. Check out this article from Skynews to find out more about gender options on Facebook and pick one!

Facebook users who do not want to identify their gender as male or female now can select from around 50 other terms. Among the new ones added by the social network site are androgynous, bi-gender, cisgender, intersex, gender fluid and transsexual. There are also three preferred pronoun options: him, her or them. The company said the changes were aimed at giving people more choice in how they describe themselves. The move came after years of lobbying from users, some of whom started Facebook pages to petition for the change. Facebook worked closely with lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) activist groups to compile the new list of gender identity options.Company spokesman Will Hodges told Techcrunch.com: “While to many this change may not mean much, for those it affects it means a great deal.

“We see this as one more way we can make Facebook a place where people can express their authentic identity.”

Facebook software engineer Brielle Harrison worked on the project and is herself undergoing gender transformation, from male to female. She said: “There’s going to be a lot of people for whom this is going to mean nothing, but for the few it does impact, it means the world.

“All too often transgender people like myself and other gender nonconforming people are given this binary option, do you want to be male or female? What is your gender? “And it’s kind of disheartening because none of those let us tell others who we really are.

“This really changes that, and for the first time I get to go to the site and specify to all the people I know what my gender is.” But the latest development seemed senseless to those who believe in two genders. Jeff Johnston from national religious organization Focus On The Family said: “Of course Facebook is entitled to manage its wildly popular site as it sees fit. “But here is the bottom line: it’s impossible to deny the biological reality that humanity is divided into two halves – male and female. “Those petitioning for the change insist that there are an infinite number of genders, but just saying it doesn’t make it so. That said, we have a great deal of compassion for those who reject their biological sex and believe they are the opposite sex.”

When Sex Is Used For Power, For Sale, In The Extreme, Or Is Just Plain Wrong, You Know It’s The Sexpocalypse.

Food, water and shelter are all necessary to man’s survival. But there’s another powerful need that has transformed history, silently steering us at every turn… sex. HOW SEX CHANGED THE WORLD spans thousands of years and sheds light on how sex has changed history.

Extreme Sex.
These unbelievably true stories reveal what happens when people take sex to the extreme: from Emperor Nero’s now famous sex parties to Teddy Roosevelt’s crusades against sex-ridden New York City and the invention of a mystical practice called “sex magic”, which kicked off the free love vibe of the 1960s.

 

Sex & Power.
These are the surprisingly true stories about how the sex lives of the powerful have shaken up history: from Warren G. Harding’s days as a playboy, to one women’s time in a prince’s modern day harem, to Rasputin’s legendary status as a ladies man and the potential trigger point for the Russian Revolution.

 

Sex for Sale.
The world’s oldest profession turns up in the places you’d least expect it: as a major source of revenue for the Catholic Church, the driving force behind America’s first racially integrated neighborhood, and the launch pad for the most powerful woman in the history of the Roman Empire. Discover the truth behind how selling sex has changed the world.

 

Sexpocalypse.

Sex is powerful force of nature and for some; it’s like the end of world. These are the unbelievably true stories behind what happens when people treat sex like doomsday: from the little known sex cover-up in Pompeii, to J. Edgar Hoover’s legendary Obscene Files used to keep politicians in check, to how a favorite breakfast cereal is supposed to help impose more self-control on lonely nights.

 

 

 

 

 

The Sexless Marriage Check List.

Not one of those fun check lists you really want to check out. But if you have worries you might want to breeze through it just to confirm what you already know. It’s authored by Dr. Abigail Hirsch who leads the Power of Two coaching team. She guides couple away from fighting and into building trust, intimacy and love.

Sex gives couples a way to have fun together and increases their emotional connection. If there’s little or even no sex in your marriage, here’s some sexless marriage help!

When both partners feel similarly disinterested in sharing sexual activities together, a marriage may survive just fine. If they share lots of appreciation, good times and non-sexualized affection (smiles, hugs, fond words, eye contact, etc), they can bridge the gap left by minimal physical intercourse.

Getting sexless marriage help becomes vitally important however when spouses show different levels of interest in sex. Distress, resentment, and a sense of betrayal or deprivation, can corrode a couple’s affection, and their marriage can become at risk for survival.

The first step in getting sexless marriage help is to understand the factors contributing to the problem. Here’s a quick diagnostic assessment checklist. Which factors seem to apply in your situation?

The Sexless Marriage Help Checklist

Category A: Informational inhibitions

Negative messages received about sex as a youth
A lack of clarity about how to initiate sex
A lack of knowledge about mild practical difficulties regarding sustaining erections, stimulating or increasing lubrication, or compensating for age-related sexual retardation
A need for more information about cultivating emotional intimacy
An underestimation of the importance of sexual activity in marriage
The mistaken belief that arousal should precede sexual activity (in fact, arousal often is a response to sexual activity rather than a precursor)

Category B: Physical inhibitions

Vulvar pain syndromes
Prostate difficulties
Back pain
Chronic physical discomforts (headaches, stomach difficulties, etc.)
Excessive work demands are leaving no time for sex
Fragile or friable vaginal tissues from low levels of estrogen
Heart-attack post-event fears
Fatigue from too much work and not enough rest

Category C: Emotional inhibitions

Inhibitions about being sexual stemming from earlier trauma or abuse
Withholding of sex because of negative interactions, retribution, or power issues
Fears of potential rejection
Concerns about gender identity or homosexual impulses
Feelings of depressed, which can inhibit desire
Body image disturbances (resulting in feeling unattractive)
Attraction difficulties toward spouse
Category D: Alternative outlets

Pornography
Masturbation
Affairs
Sportsaholic
Workaholic
Alcoholic

In order to know for sure which of the problem categories are relevant to your situation, and therefore what kind of sexless marriage help you’re going to need, you’re probably going to have to talk openly about it with your spouse.

How do you feel about talking openly together about the sexless marriage help checklist above?

If talking about sex with your partner sounds overwhelming, or if the two of you try talking and it does not go well, even before getting sexless marriage help, you will need to get learn skills for how to communicate with your spouse.

A marriage communication program like the Power of Two Online can make a huge difference. It’s inexpensive, convenient, and fun — and can give you the skills you need to be able to talk together about sex in your relationship.

The second step for getting sexless marriage help is brainstorming together about options for resolving the problem.

Strengthening your communication skills with a marriage education program like the Power of Two Online will be critical for this step as well. You’ll need to be confident that you have the skills to keep your discussions creative and win-win, instead of critical and argumentative.

Once you have identified which issues in the sexless marriage help checklist are most relevant to you, you can check out marriage help books, websites, therapists or therapy programs specific to the underlying problem you have identified.

In general, for Category A (informational inhibitions), books, articles and/or a sex education specialist can provide the sexless marriage help and information you need.

For Category B (physical inhibitions), consulting with your medical doctor may make a big difference. Also, give yourselves permission to get creative on finding ways to enjoy sexual activity that circumvent the physical problem.

If your intimacy problems stem from issues in Category C (emotional inhibitions), find a therapist you can trust. This could be a psychologist, counselor, or social worker with experience working with people who share your issues.

Lastly, for problems in Category D (alternative outlets), like in Category C, working with a psychologist, counselor, or social worker could help. You should also consider seeking out an addictions counselor or program such as AA.

Finding good sexless marriage help is not easy. Just remember though – in order to really be able to address the problem, you’re going to have to have the communication skills to be able to talk about them together. You could say verbal intercourse is the path to sexual intercourse.

Remember, building a better marriage is one of the most gratifying and fulfilling activities a person can put their energies into. So, bravo to you for confronting your dilemma and seeking out the sexless marriage help you need!
