How weed smoking affects your vagina

Published

on

Most women may not know that smoking weed can affect their vagina and sex adversely.

As a female, smoking weed can affect your vagina, thus playing a huge role in the quality of sex you have.

According to research, smoking weed not only drys up your mouth, it also does the same to your vagina.

This discovery was first noticed in 2009 after a survey was done on 8,650 Australian people in order to see if a link existed between marijuana usage and poor vaginal lubrication.

Dr. Julie Holland, author of “Moody Bitches: The Truth About The Drugs You’re Taking, The Sleep You’re Missing, The Sex You’re Not Having, and What’s Really Making You Crazy,” took interest and spent a significant amount of time researching marijuana’s effects on sexual health.

She found out that vaginal dryness, “exactly like dry mouth… it’s the drying of the mucus membranes” is indeed a side effect of smoking weed.

This vaginal dryness caused by smoking weed affects sex as it could cause painful sex and injuries.

Easy, affordable and healthy eating tips during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak

Published

on

While many parents are understandably looking to ready meals and processed foods as a quick and low-cost way to feed the family, there are convenient, affordable and healthy alternatives. Here are five ways to help feed your children a varied, nutritious diet that will support their growth and development, all while building healthy eating habits.

5 healthy eating tips

1. Keep up fruit and vegetable intake

Purchasing, storing and cooking fresh vegetables can be challenging in a lockdown, especially when parents are advised to limit trips outside of the home. But wherever possible, it’s important to ensure children are still getting plenty of fruit and vegetables in their diet.

Whenever it is possible to get hold of fresh produce, do so. As well as being eaten fresh, fruits and vegetables can be frozen where possible and will retain most of their nutrients and flavor. Using fresh vegetables to cook large batches of soups, stews or other dishes will make them last longer and provide meal options for a few days. These can also be frozen where possible and then quickly reheated.

2. Swap in healthy dried or canned alternatives when fresh produce is not available

Fresh produce is almost always the best option, but when it is not available there are plenty of healthy alternatives that are easy to store and prepare.

Canned beans and chickpeas, which provide an abundance of nutrients, can be stored for months or even years, and can be included in meals in many ways. Canned oily fish such as sardines, mackerel and salmon are rich in protein, omega 3 fatty acids and a range of vitamins and minerals. These can be used cold in sandwiches, salads or pasta dishes, or cooked as part of a warm meal.

Canned vegetables, such as tomatoes, do tend to contain lower quantities of vitamins than fresh produce, but they are a great fallback option when fresh produce or frozen vegetables are hard to come by.

Dried goods like dried beans, pulses and grains such as lentils, split peas, rice, couscous or quinoa are also nutritious, long-lasting options that are tasty, affordable and filling. Rolled oats cooked with milk or water can serve as an excellent breakfast option, and can be spiced up with yoghurt, chopped fruits or raisins.

3. Build up a stock of healthy snacks

Children often need to eat a snack or two during the day to keep them going. Rather than giving kids sweets or salty snacks, opt for healthier options like nuts, cheese, yoghurt (preferably unsweetened), chopped or dried fruits, boiled eggs, or other locally available healthy options. These foods are nutritious, more filling, and help build healthy eating habits that last a lifetime.

4. Limit highly processed foods

While using fresh produce may not always be possible, try to limit the amount of highly processed foods in your shopping basket. Ready-to-eat meals, packaged snacks and desserts are often high in saturated fat, sugars and salt. If you do purchase processed foods, look at the label and try to choose healthier options containing less of these substances. Try to also avoid sugary drinks and instead drink lots of water. Adding fruits or vegetables like lemon, lime, cucumber slices or berries to water is a great way to add an extra twist of flavor.

5. Make cooking and eating a fun and meaningful part of your family routine

Cooking and eating together is a great way to create healthy routines, strengthen family bonds and have fun. Wherever you can, involve your children in food preparation – small children can help with washing or sorting food items while older children can take on more complex tasks and help to set the table.

Try as much as possible to stick to fixed mealtimes as a family. Such structures and routine can help reduce anxiety for children in these stressful situations.
Advice for breastfeeding children

Breastmilk remains a great food for children between 6-24 months. Women with COVID-19 can continue to breastfeed if they wish to do so. They should, however, practice respiratory hygiene during feeding, wearing a mask where available; wash their hands before and after touching the baby; and routinely clean and disinfect surfaces they have touched. If too unwell to breastfeed due to the virus or other complications, mothers should be supported to safely provide newborns with breastmilk in any way possible.

This is how to stay sexually intimate in a long distance relationship

Published

on

Long distance relationships aren’t so bothersome if you find the right person and you are willing to make things work, even on the preservation of sexual intimacy.

You can be distant from your boo and still remain as close as ever.

To keep the sexual fire burning despite the distance, here are tips you need.

1. Talk about it. A whole lot

You will spend a whole lot of time apart from your boo and what this means is that to keep the relationship alive, you would need a lot of communication. You can’t spend the whole time talking about everything else but sex.

You should get really comfortable with each other. Cover as much ground as you can. Talk about desires preferences, review the last time you got together, ask each other what you enjoyed and be determined to do more of that. The things that didn’t work should be left out.

And it’s not just dirty talk. You should share articles and insights, discuss how your sex life affirms and supports the relationship you’re working to sustain. Take time to ensure that you’re on the same page, and that you’re both getting what you need.

You don’t have all the time in the world to enjoy sexual intimacy like other couples so the goal should be to make the best out of the little time you get with each other.

By already addressing these issues, you know how to maximize the pleasure in the limited time that you get to spend with each other every now and then.

2. Sexy pictures/videos

This is a no-brainer actually. You should be able to trust your partner enough to protect these private images. Afterall, why go into a long distance relationship in the first instance if you do not trust your partner that much.

3. Other methods

Something as simple as a sexy voice note in your turned on voice can do the trick sometimes. But don’t cramp your style by limiting yourself to only the things listed in this piece.
