Hi Sir, Please help me how to concentrate on everything I see and how to stay calm and cool? Please advise.
Hello Sir/Madam I am felling weightless from past few days. I am not able to concentrate in any work due to same. Not able to understand what's going wrong. Please help. Thanks in advance.
I used to smoke every day since last 3 years What should I do for stop smoking? What type of food should you take for recover my muscles?
My husband wants me to have an affair and has fantasized about it for the last 5 of our 10 years together. He gets turned on at the mere thought of me having sex with someone else. And, this fantasy doesn’t go away.
We had some serious problems a couple of years ago and I was unfaithful once. I told him and he went from hurt, to jealous, to turned on and asks me to talk about it now during sex. The fantasy arouses me too, but I’m mainly aroused by his arousal. Is this type of fantasy better kept a fantasy? I would never be turned on at the thought of him with another woman. Thanks for your advice.
Oh, Sugar, Sugar.
Sounds to me like you just got the world’s best (and rarest) hall pass:
Men Who Want Their Wives to Fuck Other Men.
This is also known as cuckolding, and I’m not quite sure I’m the go-to guy on the subject. In our household, we joke that one day (maybe on my 50th birthday), I’ll get my threesome with another woman. There are no equivalent jokes about watching my wife with another man.
They’re fantasies. They don’t have to be acted out in real life if it would cause real life harm to the relationship.
But here’s the thing with fantasies…
They’re fantasies. They don’t have to be acted out in real life if it would cause real life harm to the relationship. Which is why it’s harmless for me to joke about a threesome; I would never bring someone home from Craigslist and ruin my marriage because of it. And it’s why your husband is still pressing for the idea of seeing you with another man. In fantasy form, it’s harmless. In reality, well…
…you’re kinda like me – a sexual hypocrite. It’s cool if you’re with someone else; you just don’t want to imagine him with another woman.
Thankfully, he’s not asking you to imagine that. He’s asking if you’re open to being with another man with his permission. And from what you’re saying above, it sounds like you are.
You wonder if this is okay because it’s not the other guy that excites you, it’s being aroused at his arousal. Well, who cares? Arousal is arousal. Being aroused at someone else’s reaction is why men have responded to women’s fake orgasms since the beginning of time. So, on the surface, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with him taking pleasure in you taking pleasure out of another man.
Where things may go awry is when unexpected emotions arise.
Will your husband truly be cool watching you have sex with another man? Hearing about it afterwards? Sleeping in the same bed where the deed was done? It may sound great in theory; who knows what he’ll feel like after the fact. One may be able to intellectually separate sex and love, but jealousy isn’t a rational emotion.
Being aroused at someone else’s reaction is why men have responded to women’s fake orgasms since the beginning of time.
Similarly, how will you feel about unleashing the dragon of polyamory? Maybe this is a one-time deal. Maybe your husband will want to see you with more and more men. Maybe you’ll get emotionally bonded to one of these new men. Maybe this one experience will irrevocably change the way you view sex and marriage. That’s a lot of maybes on which to risk a marriage.
Strangely, the good thing that you have going for you is a ten-year relationship that has already overcome infidelity. This means you should be able to address most of these concerns beforehand, and deal with any surprising emotional issues that come up afterwards.
So am I giving you the green-light to have sex with another man even though you’re married?
Yes, but I wouldn’t be if I didn’t think that your relationship couldn’t survive it. You have to accept your husband at his word that this will be a turn-on, and if this arrangement doesn’t work for both of you, you must return to the way things were before – with Pandora firmly back in the box.
Let us know how it goes.
Hi, I spend too much time lonely, too much time reading news articles, watching videos online which has no use. I do not talk at all with people, Its been 2 years I have moved to new place and have no local contacts at all. I do not talk at all with people in office, Does not feel to talk or socially engage with anyone. I spend my weekends holidays just sitting at home and watching TV and internet videos. Do not feel like going out even for buying food, grocery etc. Maybe I have got Asperger syndrome. Can anyone help me overcome this situation?
Famous in Ayurveda as a herb to combat the effects of day-to-day stress, Jatamansi has the property of enhancing the body's innate ability to sleep well. It is considered a divine plant in Ayurveda and has traditionally been used as an air purifier. The Charaka Samhita recommends it highly for insomnia, mental instability and to enhance memory. It is said to promote growth and maintain the color of hair. It is said to be especially useful in calming the aggressive conduct of hyperactive and otherwise disturbed children. True Spikenard, the Biblical Spikenard, a strong sedative related to Valerian, can relax mental over-stimulation, promote healthy sleep and calm the overly active mind, and its roots are a well know tranquilizer, an infusion of the root often being given in hysteria, heart palpitations, menopause, and various nervous diseases.
In terms of Jatamansi's energetics, its medicinally useful rhizome (root) and the root's oil are bitter, astringent and sweet in taste, with a cooling virya and a pungent vipaka. Its doshic signature is KPV.
Jatamansi enters into the rakta and majja dhatus and the rasavaha and raktavaha, anavaha, majjavaha, pranavaha and shukravaha srotam, and counteracts the effects of stress, having both antispasmodic and generally calmative actions.
Among its many indications it has been found useful in the treatment of digestive diseases generally, flatulence, hypercholesterolemia, heart palpitations, the effects of nervous and emotional upset, hypochondria (somatizing disorder), jaundice, kidney stones, respiratory diseases generally, skin conditions generally, typhoid, seminal debility, spasmodic hysterical states, epilepsy, convulsions, tension headache, insomnia, ADHD, febrile delirium, delirium tremens and senile dementia. Jatamansi's pharmacologic activities include those of an analgesic, both a stimulant and a sedative (a surprising combination of seemingly contradictory properties, quite like ashwagandha with which it is often found in formulation), antiarrhythmic, hypotensive, calmative, tonic, antispasmodic, diaphoretic, an alternative for syphilitic, cutaneous and rheumatic cases, a promoter of hair growth, and an antioxidant.
Its use is contraindicated in pregnancy, and daily dosage varies from 3 to 5 grams daily of the churna.
After lost my girlfriend I feel working, valueless and aimless lifestyle since 5 years. I can not feel better or normal. Please suggest me some solution about it. Thanks.
I am 24 years old. I am getting tensed over alot of things. I cannot control my anger. Wat should I do?
I just need to find the right girl and marry. Still I am looking for the right one but not yet to find. The girls whom I contacted and approached have their own unresolved stories .Even though I didn't expect the perfect match but still I need someone which I can even compromise with her flaws. The other thing is I feel depressed whenever people's reaptedly asked me to Marry. Of course I am 32 now which I desperately need to marry. But am still trying to get the good one. Previously I was in relation ship for about two years but failed which I strongly believe that I didn't contribute that much for the break up. So whenever I sit alone I feel bad about the previous one and get offended .but no matter what I am struggling to get some one and forget all the past. So what do you advise me? Thank you very much.
I want to get divorced but my parents aint allowing me. Because of this I am unable to come out of depression. Kindly assist me.

Having a mental problem can be very frightening and distressing. Person suffering from any kind of mental disorder may have a feeling that they are losing their mind, causing fear and sense of isolation. It is important to know that having a mental issue doesn't mean that you are going mad. There are various disorders and problems, which may arise relating to mental health. These problems can change the way you think and behave. Therefore, it is important to know what kind of disorder you are suffering from and what could be the reason behind it. The disorders are of different types and have different effects and symptoms.
Here are the different types of mental health problems:
- Anxiety disorders: People suffering from anxiety disorders are fearful while responding to certain objects and scenarios. Physical signs of panic and anxiety are present as well, which may include rapid sweating and rapid heartbeat. Treatment is required when a person cannot control his response and when his response is inappropriate. Anxiety disorder involves a general anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder and phobia.
