Do you know how to turn an ordinary text message fifty shades of hot? Are you a sextpert sexting expert? Probably not. But we have your back! Here are 10 tips for becoming the best sexter you can be.

1. Use as many emojis as possible, since small Japanese ideograms of poodles and fax machines are scientifically proven to arouse desire.

2. If someone asks for a photo of your breasts and you’re not interested in sending them one, use keyboard symbols to paint them a picture instead. (o)(o)

3. Cosmopolitan suggests that you not give too much away in your sext and that you keep your wording subtle. Their example: “I just bought something, and I think you’ll drool when you see me in it tonight.” This is great advice. You never want your partner to know if you’re bringing home slinky lingerie to turn her on, or a VHS of The Sound of Music that you plan to reenact until she falls asleep.

4. Keep it short and sweet! This isn’t a novel! Try sending just the word “ovary” or a quick message reading only “pituitary gland.” Your partner will get the idea.

5. Guys might have a hard time understanding female anatomy, so put your sext in words he can understand. Try “I have a gargantuan boner right now” or “you’re making my balls sweat.”

6. Victorian men were really into women’s ankles. Keep it spicy and send a sinful snapshot of the whispy hair on your big toe.

7. Another sample line from our friends at Cosmo: “I can’t stop thinking about last night. I’m definitely ready for round two.” This one works because it leaves something up to the imagination. Are you talking about round two of sex? Maybe. Are you talking about round two of watching Mad Men and eating chips? Probably.

8. A recent study revealed that 24 percent of US consumers between the ages of 50 and 75 have sent “intimate” messages through text, email, or photo messaging. Ask your grandparents for help drafting a tantalizing message about genitalia.

9. Keep it realistic! Askmen.com suggests that you “not say anything via sext that you don’t plan to do in real life.” A super steamy message might say something like “Let’s kiss for a while until I remember I left clothes in the washer and I have to get out of bed before they go moldy,” or “I can’t wait to get busy tonight unless you ate Chinese food and you’re feeling gassy.”

10. Ever fantasized about going to town on each other in public? Send your sexts over twitter or instagram! Send thousands of them!

Apply these tips to keep your love life spicy and your phone records incriminating. Get to sexting, you sexy sexter!

Lessons about Eating we Can Learn From The French

The French diet is full of flavor and high in satisfaction. They don’t believe in low-fat, low-carb, low-taste, or low-calorie, but they do believe in enjoying their food, taking the time to eat at the table, knowing when to stop eating and educating their children about food. These are a just a few of the many lessons the French can teach us about a culture that truly thrives on savoring the flavor at mealtime.

1. The French eat family meals together.

No distractions. It’s a real bonding time where they get to talk discuss life. The French train their kids from the age of three they spend time eating at the table at lunch every day in school. They’re not inherently better behaved, but they’ve practiced for years. By the time you see an eight-year-old French kid in a restaurant they have sat at a table thousands of times. It’s just practice.

2. The French sit down and enjoy their meals.

Eating great food — no matter how simple or how elaborate — is one of life’s great pleasures. It’s rare to see people eating while walking or shopping in France. There are no cup holders on caddies, or even in most cars. You eat at the table, not in front of the TV or computer screen, then you leave the table and do something else. When eating at restaurants, the French are never asked by their servers “are you done with that?” because the meal is a pleasure, not a task.

3. They French don’t snack!

They eat, but not all day long. It’s OK to feel hungry between meals. The French don’t graze after dinner. That’s why when mealtimes roll around, they eat with real pleasure because they’re hungry. When the kitchen closes, it’s CLOSED and they have set mealtimes without cheating on the side. Portions are generous without going overboard. Although the French take in a lot of daily calories compared to most other countries (but nothing compared to yearly U.S. calorie intake), they don’t gain weight because of how they schedule their meals.

4. The French never say diet.

The French don’t get involved in the carbs versus protein debate, nor do they label food groups “bad.” They emphasize on eating a wide variety of foods without overdoing any one specific food group. Yo-yo dieting and extreme fluctuations in weight we see in America are completely absent in France. They are masters at stabilizing their metabolism. You’ll never see a French person on a restricted calorie diet to lose weight…it just doesn’t happen.

5. The French know their limit, then stop eating.

In France, you won’t find many all-you-can-eat feasts, such as buffets, tailgate parties and unlimited pasta and dessert bars, where it’s easy for the calories to add up quickly. The French realize that they will get to eat again in a few hours. They usually stop when they’re 80% full and don’t continue to gorge when they’re full if and when they ever get there.

6. Parents are in charge of food education, not schools!

This doesn’t just mean teaching your children to eat right. It means teaching them to appreciate and love food — all kinds of food. The French believe that teaching children to eat is just as important as, and just as time consuming as, teaching them to read. They have a long-term view. Kids eat what adults eat. No short-order cooking. There’s no mac & cheese special just for the boy. They also don’t get frustrated when there are bumps in the road. Some kids take longer to read than others, but they don’t give up and say “This kid is a picky eater, she just doesn’t like broccoli.” You don’t treat fear of foods as a personality trait, you treat it as a phase.

7. The French eat lighter at night.

Lunchtime is the main event. Dinner is usually light: soups, salads, an omelet, a simple pasta dish. Dessert might be a yogurt or fruit. And you sleep so much better .

8. The French don’t eat emotionally and restrict portion size.

You’re not going to see a many French women on the couch crying with a bag of potato chips. They don’t emotionally attach themselves to food. The French diet is full of flavor and high in satisfaction. The women eat bread, chocolate, even rich sauces made from real butter and cream, yet they do not get fat. Pourquoi? Moderation. It’s all about portion control. They eat small portions of high-quality foods less often. Portion sizes in America at least 40% or more larger than in France.

9. Eat your veggies.

You don’t have to LIKE it, but you do have to TASTE it. 
Even children don’t like a specific food, the French are more neutral and will just shrug and say, “Oh well, you just haven’t tried it enough times.” However, they will still make them taste it. They learn to taste their food and guess the ingredients. They love to talk about their food. Discussing how something tastes, its ingredients and how it was made heightens awareness; children love to join the conversation. They learn about real food and where it comes from. Children get involved in the cooking and preparing process.

10. The French prefer water.


Generally speaking, the French do not drink their calories. At mealtimes, water (whether still or sparkling) is the drink of choice. Adults might opt for a glass or two of wine, but the glasses aren’t the size of fishbowls.

11. The French eat slowly. 


Study after study shows that when you slow down and chew your food thoughtfully you eat less. But it also gives you the chance to be social and chat more and the French have mastered this aspect within their dining experience. It takes an average of 15 minutes for your brain to get the message that your stomach is full, which means that eating slowly makes it more likely you’ll stop at a point where you’re “satisfied” as opposed to “stuffed.”

12. The French eat mostly real food.

Quality not quantity. Treats are OK only for special occasions.

By “real food” meaning whole foods and not processed foods. Not stuff from a box, can or a fast food joint. Of course the French will take pleasure in the occasional treat, but they usually do so in the company of another, on a special occasion, or if alone, with a good book or beautiful music. Again, it’s all about the experience.

Trust your Spidey Senses – 7 Ways to Better Listen to Your Intuition

husky_spider_sense_by_loopywolf-d5fcqy5

“There is a growing body of anecdotal evidence, combined with solid research efforts, that suggests intuition is a critical aspect of how we humans interact with our environment and how, ultimately, we make many of our decisions,” said Ivy Estabrooke of the Office of Naval Research, who is investigating the power of intuition which has helped troops make important and quick decisions during combat.

Whether it’s deciding which job to take, which direction to turn when you’re lost, or how to handle a conflict in your family, intuition sometimes knows better than the rational mind. The problem is that many of us have buried that little voice so deeply within, we have a hard time hearing or feeling where it is guiding us.

The good news is that your intuition is still there, you merely have to learn to hear it again.

The Intuitive Way: The Definitive Guide to Increasing Your Awareness

To better listen to your intuition, try:

  1. Meditation:  Spend time in silence, simply listening.

  2. Commune with nature:  Aim to get at least sometime outside every single day.

  3. Creativity:  Tap into your internal artist by drawing, writing, painting, or making music.
  4. Learn to listen:  In general, listen to friends, families, silence, and yourself.
  5. Be body conscious:  Learn to appreciate the little signs and signals from your body, when it tells you it’s tired, joyful, in need of love, or getting sick.
  6. Let go:  Warm up to the idea that you don’t have to control everything. Life is going to happen whether you overthink it or not. Relax.

  7. Stay positive:  A 2013 study in the journal Psychological Science found that being in a good mood boosted participant’s abilities to make intuitive calls in a word game. So smile!

Working on becoming more intuitive requires you to adopt healthier habits and a healthier mindset. These are things that are good for your mental, emotional, and physical wellbeing, no matter your end goal. And if cultivated regularly, they could lend themselves to better decision making and more happiness overall.

Is your Cellphone your friend or a Double Agent?

government-data-phones.si

How well do you know your cellphone?

 For many of us, it knows where we are every minute of the day, and it’s storing that list right there on your phone where anyone can find it.

It’s pretty common knowledge that our smartphones can tag pictures and videos with where we are, and certain apps tell us they’re using our location.

This is different.

With a new operating system update that was released last fall, iPhones now keep an actual log of places you’ve been, down to the address and the minute.

“I don’t think I’ve ever been under this setting before,” said smartphone user Jeremy Katz. “I didn’t know it was doing that level of detail.” 

 You have to know where to look:

               Step 1: Click on your ‘Settings’ app

               Step 2: Select ‘Privacy’

               Step 3: Select ‘Location Services’

               Step 4: Scroll all the way to the bottom to ‘System Services’

               Step 5: Select ‘Frequent Locations’

               Step 6: Click on each of the cities, and each location to see the specific addresses you’ve visited and the time of day you were there.

If someone thought a spouse was cheating, the truth could be right there in their phone.

“Wow, that is awesome,” exclaimed Clayton County District Attorney Tracy Graham Lawson when she saw the technology for the first time.

“It’s scary from a Big Brother point of view, but it’s awesome for law enforcement purposes,” she added.

Lawson says prosecutors have used cell tower data for years. But now, if a suspect swears he wasn’t at the house that got robbed, his phone could say he was and at the exact time of the crime.

“It’s by far better, otherwise they’re pinging a general location. This gives the exact address, this is awesome for us,” Lawson said.

“If they go through the proper warrant procedures it’s perfectly appropriate for them to get this information,” sad Atlanta attorney Gerry Weber, who specializes in constitutional law.

Weber admits he finds the new technology a little scary.

“Anybody could grab your cellphone and see where you’ve been over the last several months, date and time and place. I don’t think anybody would imagine that,” said Weber.

He worries the accessibility of the information might be too tempting for officers to wait for a search warrant.

“The officer might grab the phone, look and see where you’ve been, and use that information, and not ever tell anybody that they got it from your phone,” said Weber.

He wonders if Apple might eventually do the same, and share or sell locations for marketing.

According to Apple’s website, “Your iPhone will keep track of places you have recently been, as well as how often and when you visited them, in order to learn places that are significant to you. This data is kept solely on your device and won’t be sent to Apple without your consent. It will be used to provide you with personalized services, such as predictive traffic routing.”

You automatically consent when you allow Apple to “use your frequent locations” to improve your maps feature.

Apple refused to disclose how often your phone records your location, and whether it’s triggered by a specific act like a call or a text.

“There’s so much information out there. It’s so rich. It’s so revealing. They all want their hands on it,” said Hanni Fakhoury with the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a San Francisco based non-profit that defends privacy rights.

Fakhoury questions why Apple automatically activates the frequent locations feature when users agree to basic location services.

“When you are opted into the system automatically without any choice that’s where there are some real problems,” said Fakhoury.

Most of the smartphone users Channel 2 shared the feature with immediately asked how to disable it.
