Welcome to NYC, concrete jungle where dreams are made of. Yes, there's nothing -- and no one -- you can't do. It's time to put on your most badass Zara outfit, paint your face with Sephora contouring pencils -- and go into battle.
It may seem strange that writing about playing like a kid is part of a series of blogs about sex, but let's face it, sex is just another form of play. Sure, it's adult play, but if you've forgotten how to play like a kid, my guess is that you're not maximizing the potential for enjoyment in your sex life. At least I certainly wasn't.
Relationship problems come in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes it might feel as though the spark has gone. It might be that you are going through a stage where you feel irritable and frustrated or you could be feeling neglected or hurt in some way. Whatever the problem, mindfulness can help.
Negotiating a solution to a problem is like journeying into an uncharted territory. The road to reaching a solution may be bumpy at first, but if you are successful at resolving conflicts in your relationship, you will not only reach the desired destination, but also strengthen your relationship and feel more connected and in love with your partner.
As a wedding photographer, I see the time, energy, and money invested into a wedding. Yes, it truly can be the happiest day of your life, but what about the "from this day forward" part? How much effort is invested into the marriage itself? It's easy to slip into a relationship where you just co-exist.
Let's set aside Carrie's shoe collection and the ladies' abundant spare time for a moment. After all, it's not a documentary, it's a TV show!

Aside from the obvious upsides of masturbation that we know and love, here are some of my favorite positive side effects of a routine, healthy dose of self-love.
With time, I've learned that real love is made of the everyday stuff that cements a relationship over the years, the experiences that build a family, and the security and stability that make a home.
Pleasure is about being happy and feeling good about ourselves. Living a life filled with pleasure can make us feel sexier, younger and more energetic. It can all start with the creation of your very own 'Pleasure Plan'.
Expectations are a good, natural part of life as long as you are honest about them and take responsibility for them. Hidden expectations cause trouble. Own your desires, don't apologize for them or deny their existence.
Thinking of playing a little very candid camera with your other half? Engaging in your own sexual shoot, whether as the star or the director or both, can automatically make things more dramatic and theatrical, even if you end up keeping most of your clothes on or refuse to make any cliched "orgasm faces."
First dates can be pretty nerve-racking. We can find ourselves plagued with fears and worries because we don't know what to really expect.
While you're thinking he may change his mind, he's thinking you'll change yours -- and while he hasn't, you have. Because you keep showing up.
