Be real and strike a warm bond


Be real and strike a warm bond
Creating strong, warm relationships is not everybody's cup of tea. Pick up ways to to bond with people. 

Show interest in people: Everybody loves a little bit of attention. More so when it's personal. So, make a personal connection with people. Ask them about their loved ones as it gives people a sense of belongingness. Bring out a human element that creates instant bonding. However, make sure to not to get too personal. Maintain that healthy warm distance in personal aspects.

Talk about their interests/hobbies/passion: It's common wisdom that people love to talk about their interests, profession, passion. Find something, an idea or a hobby that others are interested or passionate about and just ask a question. It's always wise to make the person feel wanted by knowing his/her interests or passion. It's a sure shot way to create bonding.

Be a good listener: A good listener is always a winner. Allow people to express themselves. When people talk about the problems, listen and ask pertinent questions. You get to know people through their struggles and challenges. And if you do so with empathy, then you create bonds that will last a lifetime.

Be Real: When you're comfortable, you're real. Don't pretend. Masks eventually fall. People always appreciate genuine emotions. When you are who you are, you share a part of that with the other person, creating a stronger, warmer bond.


Fifa World Cup 2014: Can sex hamper football?

Yes. At least, the Russia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Chile and Mexico football authorities think so! An article on Time points out that several football teams, in the World Cup season, has come up with strict 'sex rules'. From completely banning sex to specifying the duration for which they can indulge in sex, teams have come up with a gamut of solutions for success, some of them quite bizarre.
For example, the article notes, Brazilian footballers can have sex but not 'acrobatic' sex, French players can have sex but not all night and Nigerian players can sleep with their wives while girlfriends are a strict no-no!
The strict sex-related diktat put down by several football teams, has sparked the usual debate on the necessity to ban sex to ensure the player is not hindered on ground.
"In a sign of what the world's fittest sportsmen and women get up to in the Olympic village, a record 150,000 free condoms — 15 for each competitor — have been made available to them. The phenomenal outpouring of prophylactics means there will be 50 per cent more available to athletes in London than the 100,000 handed out at the last Olympics in Beijing in 2008," The Daily Mail reported.And it's not just restricted to football. The Daily Mailreported in 2012 that 150,000 condoms had been handed out the athletes, making sure that they are suitably prepared for any kind of emergency!
However, there have been conflicted opinions on whether or not sportsmen and women and athletes should have sex before a crucial performance.
Time notes, "Many coaches and athletes believe that abstaining from sex builds up aggression, a belief that probably stems from ancient civilizations like the Greeks, who thought that men derived strength from their semen. This theory is so pervasive that even Muhammed Ali refused to have sex six weeks before a fight, fearing that ejaculation would release the testosterone (and therefore aggression) he needed for a boxing match."
However, most other scientific studies have proved otherwise. An article on Plos observes, "Despite the extravagant stories exchanged between males in locker rooms, a normal session of business time between married partners results in the expenditure of only 25-50 calories, and it’s thus unlikely to influence next day energy stores."
Most of the arguments against sex, however, are based on the perception that sex has psychological repercussions which might reflect on an athlete's performance. But no scientific study has been found to attest the same.
Ian Shrier, a sports medicine specialist, has been quoted on the National Geographic News as saying that the 'long-standing myth that athletes should practice abstinence before important competitions may stem from the theory that sexual frustration leads to increased aggression'.
"After three months without sex, which is not so uncommon for some athletes, testosterone dramatically drops to levels close to children's levels," he said. "Do you think this may be useful for a boxer?" Emmanuele A Jannini of the University of L'Aquila in Italy is quoted as saying in National Geographic.
In fact, an article on Greatist.com, suggests that sex, the night before a big game, could actually be beneficial. It cites one study which says that testosterone boost from an orgasm might actually boost muscle strength and leg power for men. Whereas, for women, hormones released during an orgasm can actually 'stop the release of pain transmitters' for close to 24 hours. Which means it could help relax sore muscles and reduce muscle pain.
An article on CNN quotes Maria Cristina Rodríguez Gutierrez, director of sports medicine at the National Autonomous University of Mexico, as saying, "Sex only burns between 200 and 300 kilocalories, which doesn't compare to running a marathon or just a regular workout session. You can restore these calories by eating a chocolate bar or drinking a can of soda."
However, the Bosnia coach, who warned, 'there will be no sex in Brazil', is not listening! Bad luck, boys!

Men Want Cuddles but Women Prefer Sex


Researchers have found that acts of affection like hugs and kisses were more important to men than women.

And for women, sex tends to get better over time - after a couple has been together about 15 years.

Researchers surveyed over 1,000 couples from five different countries who had been in relationships for between one and 51 years. Men who reported frequent kissing and cuddling were three times as happy, on average, as those who had less snuggling with their wives or girlfriends. Women, meanwhile, said that such shows of affection had very little impact on their happiness.

Both men and women reported their sex lives improving the longer their relationship had lasted. But men were more likely to say they were happy with their relationship while women were more likely to report being satisfied with the sex. The survey of couples from the US, Germany, Spain, Japan and Brazil was carried out by researchers from the Kinsey Institute at America's Indiana University.

Lead author Julia Heiman said that the first 15 years of a relationship may be emotionally draining for women while they are raising children. As they get older, they have fewer pressures.

"It's possible that women became more sexually satisfied over time because their expectations change or life changes when their children grow up," the Telegraph quoted Heiman.

"The period of less satisfaction seems to overlap with the period of raising children, during which other things really take a focus," added Heiman.
The findings about intimacy were the opposite of what researchers had expected, she revealed.

She said: "We became interested in relationships that endure and how might we begin to understand them.

"Cuddles were more important to men in predicting the degree of happiness. The really useful message is we should not make presumptions about the genders."

"Because there''s no way to be sure we're going to be right in any way."
The study has been published in journal Archives of Sexual Behaviour.

The scrapped ‘Do What U Want’ music video Lady Gaga didn’t want you to see

‘LADY GAGA BARES IT ALL’. Yes, yes she does.IT’S the music video Lady Gaga didn’t want the world to see — but now we’ve got a glimpse of the shocker that one source has called “an ad for rape”.
When Gaga released Do What U Want , the second single from her ill-fated ARTPOP album last October, she hyped up the release of an accompanying controversial video.
The video is directed by infamous photographer Terry Richardson, whose sexually explicit works cause controversy on their own, but who has also faced allegations in recent years of coercing his models into performing sexual acts.
Also featured in the video is R&B singer R. Kelly, himself no stranger to sex scandals after a 2002 video surfaced that appeared to show him engaging in sex with, and urinating on, an underage girl.
Despite the hype, the video never materialized when the single was released, and Gaga broke her silence in a January blog post to say that the delay had been “devastating” and her creative process had been rushed.

Now, TMZ have obtained a 30-second snippet of the video, and it’s not hard to see why Team Gaga decided against its release. Gaga's leaked video http://www.tmz.com/2014/06/19/lady-gaga-music-video-sexual-assault-do-what-u-want/
Lady Gaga writhes around naked in her scrapped ‘Do What U Want’ video.The clip opens with Gaga on an operating table, R. Kelly administering an unnamed “medicine” that renders her unconscious. Gaga’s lifeless, naked body is then propped up on the operating table by dancers who grind and twerk all over her.
In the next scene, Gaga — again naked, but for some scraps of newspaper — poses as Richardson shoots her against a wall plastered with her most inflammatory headlines.
Lady Gaga — ‘I’ve been betrayed and mismanaged’
Gaga touring Aus — but can it save ARTPOP?
The New York Post quotes an unnamed source who’s seen the full video: “Gaga had a video directed by an alleged sexual predator, starring another sexual predator. With the theme, ‘I’m going to do whatever I want with your body’? It was literally an ad for rape.”
While it’s hard to be shocked by Gaga’s antics nowadays, the initial furore over the song reignited with the video leak today, as fans questioned the appropriateness of teaming a track in which Gaga implores the listener to “Do what you want with my body” with a video starring two alleged sexual offenders.

Thinking Of A Happy Place Might Help Reduce Pain

Visualizing a safe place could help lessen pain during a medical procedure, a new study suggests.

Researchers examined the efficacy of visualization techniques during ablation of atrial fibrillation, a procedure that involves inserting a catheter with an electrode at the end of it into the body to destroy parts of the heart responsible for atrial fibrillation.
They examined 76 patients who used visualization techniques and 71 patients who received conventional care. The procedure took two to four hours, and all participants in the study also received local anesthesia, as well as painkillers that were administered by a nurse when they pushed a button. The participants were asked about their pain and anxiety every 15 minutes.
The patients who were in the visualization group were asked to "describe a comfortable safe place they want to be during the procedure. People have chosen a summer house, the beach, or the woods," study researcher Marianne Wetendorff Nørgaard, a clinical nurse specialist at Copenhagen University Hospital, Rigshospitalet, said in a statement. "During the procedure the nurse asks the patient to focus on their safe place and how it looks, smells and sounds."
And when a patient felt pain during the procedure, the nurse helped the patient to use visualization to provide an alternative reason for the pain.
"For example, if the patient says 'my chest is burning', the nurse may say 'imagine that it's a cold day and there is ice on your chest,'" Nørgaard explained in the statement. "Patients tell us that being in this trance like state with safe images makes the procedure a pleasant experience and it feels shorter."
Researchers found that the patients who were in the visualization group reported being in pain fewer times and requested fewer painkillers with the push button. However, researchers did not find that pain intensity or anxiety differed between those who employed visualization techniques and those who didn't.
The findings were presented at EuroHeartCare 2014; because they have yet to be published in a peer-reviewed journal, they should be considered preliminary. 

World Cup 2014: Which teams are allowed to have sex?

Forget the fantastic goals and put the comical cans of spray paint to the back of your mind. The real story coming from the Brazil World Cup is going on behind closed doors. It's not yet another Fifa corruption claim, but which players are, er, scoring off the pitch.

More goals have been scored in the opening days of the competition that at any previous tournament, but the world's media has been speculating breathlessly about another kind of scoring: which teams' managers are, shall we say, restricting strenuous nocturnal stamina-training activities.

There are no hard and fast rules about whether players should be allowed to have sex during tournament periods, but some teams are being very firm about their sexually restrictive policies, while others are happy to let nature take its course.

We do know that the Italian team, which vanquished England on Saturday, were permitted to enjoy the company of their wives and girlfriends in Manaus the night before their 2-1 victory. Of course, the same was true of the England camp, though, so the Italians had no unfair advantage there.


As an aside, gullible fans can take cheer from a breathless Daily Star "exclusive" which "revealed" that England fans could now relax, as the arrival of "sexy" Coleen Rooney would "perk" up her husband Wayne's performance on the pitch, after he fired "blanks" against Italy. That's a victory against Uruguay sorted then, lads.

The Spanish and Germans are allowed to play away from the pitch throughout the four-week festival of football, but are forbidden from indulging the night before any game, so it's unlikely that it was a night of passion with his wife Lisa that inspired striker Thomas Mueller to score a hat-trick on the pitch against Portugal.

Oddly, the Costa Ricans only have a restriction on sex until the second round of the tournament, while the more traditional Nigerians are only allowed to bed down with their wives, not their girlfriends. In contrast, the Brazilian and Mexican players have been told to fill their boots, as long as it's not too acrobatic. One can only assume team coaches are pulling all-night shifts outside bedroom doors to enforce a missionary-only policy

Unsurprisingly, it's the romance-friendly French who have perhaps the most trusting policy, allowing a sexual free-for-all as long as the frequency, type and timing of activities don't get out of control. Apparently, the team's former doctor says that sex is "relaxing" for the players, but there's a stern warning that it shouldn't become an all-night activity. Most scientists tend to agree with him, too, with numerous studies finding sex before sport has few, if any, ill effects on the players' game.


The Bosnia and Herzegovina manager obviously hasn't seen those studies, though, and he's instigated a total sex ban. It's the same story for the sex-deprived players of Russia and Chile, though the latter could potentially pop home between games for some forbidden passion. Perhaps they've taken inspiration from the ancient Greeks, who believed that preserving a man's sperm was essential to creating the required aggression for public performance.

What footballers and elite athletes get up to at sporting competitions has ignited media feeding frenzies before. In 2006 the England camp was called a "circus" by Rio Ferdinand after manager Sven Goran Eriksson allowed celebrity wives and girlfriends such as Victoria Beckham and Cheryl Cole to accompany the squad. Four years later, Fabio Capello was much stricter in South Africa - not that it did much good on the pitch.

As for the elite stars themselves, most have (sensibly) stayed silent about the intimate details of their sexual exploits, but back in the 1990s Linford Christie, the British sprinter, famously said a romp the night before a race made his legs feel like lead. That wouldn't do for a quarter-final clash.

7 Sex Secrets Women Wish Men to Know


World News Headlines: Hottest Kamasutra sex positions to thrillA good talk is a great aphrodisiac 
Many women find talk a great turn-on. For them, talking and feeling loved are very important. Good conversation during walks or while the couple is relaxing can be a great aphrodisiac. A man could tell his woman how much he loves her, which acts as a reassurance that he is with her mentally during those intimate moments. 

Many women are anxious about their looks
For a couple that has been together for long, sometimes it is natural that women may feel that their partner may find them less alluring. Because of this some women undress only under the cover of darkness. Caring men can sense such anxieties. There is no need to lie and say she's gorgeous if she isn't, nor is there a need to say that she is not attractive anymore. One can always appreciate and praise what you do find attractive. 

For a woman sex isn't separate from rest of her life 
On the other hand, men tend to compartmentalise, feeling that stressful aspects of life can be parked mentally and separated from sexual activity. Women need good feelings and experiences during the day to have satisfying sex. How her lover treats her out of bed, greatly influences her response in bed. Inattentiveness, harsh language, rude tones, hurtful words, and criticism can make it difficult for a woman to get involved, feel enthusiastic and be passionate during sex. 

An orgasm is not a necessity 
Many men feel that a good lover is one who can bring his woman to climactic sexual culmination. It is great to have such moments, but aren't always essential. Many women feel pressure from partners and even from themselves to reach an orgasm. Sometimes instead of having orgasms, women prefer to engage in just foreplay. 

Sex need not be a serious act 
Playfulness is a great quality. Many men are far too serious about sex. They forget to laugh, be romantically mischievous, have fun. Playfulness and light-heartedness can make intimate moments enjoyable and relaxing. This takes performance pressure off from both partners. 

Women cherish non-sexual touching and tenderness 
Women love romance, cuddling, hand-holding and kissing. But many women complain that their men never do this except during foreplay. A woman should make her man realise the joy of touching. As you give him a relaxing massage and stroke his face and hair tenderly, he starts experiencing the joy of this kind of non-sexual touching. Tell your man what makes you feel loved and wanted. 

Warm attention after sex is important 
A woman's need for tender moments goes beyond the actual lovemaking. Some women complain that men fall asleep immediately after the act. It is true that when a man is having sex, his endorphin level is very high. Almost immediately after ejaculation, he goes through a refractory phase where he loses his erection and all his systems gear down. In females this phase happens gradually. However, if you don't like him falling asleep immediately, tell him without putting him down. Alternatively, let him sleep in your arms for a few minutes and gently wake him up afterwards. 

Top 10 Super Sex Treats To Give Him


Supertricks to get intimate1. When he leans in for a kiss, pull the back of his head closer to you with your hands. Lightly tug on his hair as you kiss to reinforce the message that you can't get enough of his mouth on yours.

2. Just before you go down on him, lick your lips and whisper in his ear that you can't wait to taste him.

3. As you're hanging out in bed doing your normal thing-maybe watching a movie or reading-suddenly roll over, lie on top of him, and writhe your entire body against his through your clothes.

4. Pin his hands above his head, and use only your breasts to give his chest a sexy rubdown. Put a dab of lotion on your nipples to enhance the skin-on-skin sensation.

5. Give him a real-life wet dream: invite him to join you in the shower, and then surprise him by getting on your knees and taking his penis into your mouth. The warm stream of water against his back combined with the warmth of your mouth will feel so good, he'll need to brace himself against the shower bar to stay standing.

6. While you're making out, take two of his fingers and press them against the outside of your underwear so he knows just how wet he's getting you.

7. As he's giving you oral, rock your hips in rhythm to his movements, and lift your lower half toward him to show just how into it you are.

8. Push your guy down on the bed with his arms by his sides and straddle him so that your knees lightly pin his forearms against his body. Tantalise him by showing peeks of skin for a few seconds while simultaneously circling your hips like you're riding him cowboy-style.

9. Sneak up behind your guy while he's on the phone and reach around to grab his penis. Use a firmer, underhand grip to re-create the way he touches himself while giving him warm, breathy kisses from just below the earlobe to that ultra-sensitive spot where the bottom of his neck meets the top of his back.

10. Give him an F-me-now kiss: stroke the back of his neck with one hand, grab his butt with the other, and press your boobs into his chest and your pelvis against his.
