Morning Edition - 10/4/05

Sexual Freedom or New-Found Hooker-dom
A new study from the Review of General Psychology looked at sexual behavior in young men and women from 1943 to 1999. With fifty years of hard core statistics the study is liberating and shocking. The study showed that the average age of first-time sexual intercourse for females dropped from 19 to 15. More jaw-dropping was the statistic that said only 13% of female teens said they were sexually active in 1943, while 47% said they “got busy” in 1999. Back in the forties only 12% of young women thought premarital sex was okay; that number skyrocketed to 73% today. In 1969 the survey said only 48% of youngsters engaged in oral sex – most, in fact, thought it was nasty and deviant behavior; today 72% felt it was just another way of being sexual.

He Makes My Coochy Hot
An average of 5% of women are allergic to their man’s sperm. This means that following sex they encounter itching, burning – almost the same feeling of having a yeast infection. Some gynecologist say that the number of women is slightly higher (up to 10%) for women with infertility. If you’re not sure if it’s your man’s sperm that is irritating you, experts suggest you use a condom to see if you have the same reaction. Truth is, if it’s not your husband you should be using one anyway. The pros also say that sometimes the problem isn’t your man’s sperm, rather lubricants and contraceptive jellies that do the damage. In the end, you should see your gynecologist to rule out any possibility of viral or bacterial infection.

Truth Is; Our Dead Loved Ones Live On
Yesterday’s On Blast unearthed some pretty serious emotions stemming from having a last hoorah for our deceased loved ones. While some of our resident bloggers shared some deep-rooted emotional connections to lives cut short, some voiced a longing to have a final moment to let someone know how much they care. Our loved ones live on within us and regardless of what your beliefs are, they had a lasting impact on our lives. The issue also accents a real and present situation – appreciating the loved ones in our lives today, so that we have less regrets and longings in the future. As we get older it’s important to say what we feel, tell those you care about that you love them and be there (without strings) for those that mean something in your life. Following yesterday’s discussion we should come away with a sense that you can’t fix the past, but you can learn from it. We can see that some arguments and disagreements aren’t important enough to damage the core of our relationships with those we love.

On Blast
Regardless of your current education, experience or training you are granted the opportunity to realize your professional dream and do what it is you’ve always wanted to do. You will be at the top of your game in your dream field or career path. What is that dream? What would you do? Where would you be?

Keep passin’ the open windows…

My Dream is to own and operate a booming Spa Resort in Arizona and having my husband (When he finds me) as my partner in running our business. The thing is that I know I can achieve this dream if I were to put more effort into the concept and stop wasting my energy on things that just satisfy my "in the moment" phase.

HEy guys....

I'm so sorry for the brief hiatus but work was/is kicking my butt!

My professional dream is to one day become a Member of Congress and represent the 10th Congressional district of BK in DC. I also hope to become a powerful K street lobbyist and take my skills a little further south and become a political powerhouse there!

I'll holla,
Jeanine

I would like to be the lawyer that I already am...giving conniving no good dirty bastards the light they need to shine into their darkness. Make housing affordable for all who need affordable housing. Stop the gentrification of Harlem so that folks stop getting pushed out of communities.
Then have an aneurism and die from all of the stress. But at least I will have accomplished a lot.
