Tips for sizzling sex

Keep your panties on

Wearing underwear can really hot up the session. It can be pleasurable torture to play with each other, teasing and stroking through the fabric. It acts like foreplay where you are building up the anticipation, so that when you finally do have skin-on-skin contact, it'll be that much more explosive and exciting.

Warm breath on your nape

Nothing arouses you more than the warm breath of your partner on your nape - it's the only sound in the room and is very erotic. In no time will you be a ready and willing partner.

Light of your life

Turn off the lights and take a little torch. Guide the glow to areas of your body that you want him to lick or rub. Start with your neck, ears, nipples - go wherever you want him to explore. Even if it's a nonsexual area like your back, he has to pay attention to that area until you stop shining the flashlight on it.


Women love their bodies

Women who enjoy sex are comfortable with touching themselves, as that's how they learn about their own bodies, what they like or don't and how they can reach orgasm quickly or slowly

Depending on their mood. For women, there are other ways of having an orgasm and not just by having sex, and they control their erotic destiny: they know they can come whenever they want, and that makes them more confident and relaxed lovers.

Lichen Simplex Chronicus/ Prurigo Nodularis

LSC is a severely pruritic chronic disorder characterised by 1 or more lichenised plaques. Most common sites of involvement are the scalp, nape of neck, extensor aspects of extremities and anogenital regions. 

Causes:

LSC is induced by rubbing and scratching the body secondary to itch. Environmental factors like heat, sweat, irritation may also aggravate the condition. Patients with emotional lability or tension are more prone to develop this condition.

Clinical Features:

Severe itching is the hallmark of lichen simplex chronicus. Itching may be paroxysmal, sporadic or chronic. It may be conscious and to the point of replacing the sensation of itch with pain or may be unconscious occurring during sleep.

The frequent rubbing leads to development of lichenified scaly plaques. The most common sites of involvement are the nape of neck, scalp, ankles, extensor aspects of extremities and the anogenital regions. The scrotum is the common site of involvement in men. The nodules may vary in size from 0.5 mm to 3 mm.

Treatment:

Treatment is aimed at interrupting the itch scratch cycle. Systemic causes of itch should be identified and addressed. Potent topical steroids are generally prescribed to control itch. Anti histaminics like hydroxyzine or levocetrizine can also be given. Capsaicin, calcipotriol, cryotherapy have been used in the treatment of prurigo nodularis. PUVA therapy has also known to show some benefit.

6 Places Women Want To Be Touched

1 Her Hair
Maintaining their gorgeous locks isn’t the only reason women go to their hairstylists so often. The process of wash, cut, color, and styling can actually be quite a stress reliever. Running your hands gently through her hair is a surefire way to send tingles down her spine. Let your fingers massage circles from her temples to the nape of her neck and she’ll be putty in your hands

2 Her Neck
Once you get to the nape of her neck, place a few light kisses there. In ancient Japan, the back of a woman’s neck was seen as very attractive by men since it was one of the few places not covered by clothing. In modern times, the nape of the neck is often neglected in favor of more obvious pleasure centers, but never underestimate the power of gentle touches and kisses from her hairline to her shoulders.

3 Behind Her Knees
This area is one that most men don’t think of when trying to stimulate a woman, but it is, in fact, quite sensitive. Gently caressing the back of the knee under her skirt while the two of you are in a public place will make her ready to get busy once you get home. Don’t forget to pay some more attention to this special spot once you’re alone too.

4 Pelvis
Concentrating some affection on her pelvis is a great idea; however, you’ll have to resist the urge to slip down to her vagina while you’re so close. Like teasing her inner thighs, kissing and licking around her pelvis will excite her until she’s begging for more. Prolong the sensation by leaving the region to focus on another body part for a while.

5 Inner Thighs
Touching her inner thighs without venturing into the vaginal area will make for an excellent tease that is sure to get her revved up. Use your hands and mouth to caress and kiss the insides of her thighs, getting excruciatingly close to her ultimate pleasure spot, but pulling back before going all the way.

6 Her Nipples
These handy barometers of desire are simple to read: Up is "on," down is "off." But they're also thermometers, popping up when the weather's cold, like giant goose bumps. The nipples are important—in fact, for some women, you can induce an orgasm just by doing breast duty. But the sensitivity of nipples varies widely; handle with care.

How Homeopathy Helps Manage Spondylitis?

How Homeopathy Helps Manage Spondylitis?

Spondylitis, or cervical spondylitis, is a common condition that affects a large section of the adult population. This most common disorder of the cervical spine is a degenerative condition. There are soft disks between the vertebral bones which shrink with age and gets stiff. This leads to formation of small bone spurs. This reduces the space available for the disk to move, causing nerve pinching.

Causes: Ageing is the most common cause for spondylitis. Injury, incorrect sleeping posture, and heavy weight-lifting can also cause spondylitis. While earlier it was common in people who were 60-plus, with more people spending more time at their computers and workstations, the onset happens much earlier in 30s and sometimes even in 20s.

Symptoms: Most symptoms related to spondylitis are centered on the neck and shoulder regions. There is pain and stiffness in the neck that can extend to the shoulders, nape of the neck, arms, and sometimes even the fingers. In rare cases, the pain can extend into the forehead and back of the head too. Associated symptoms include numbness, weakness, and a pricking sensation in the hands, arms, and sometimes fingers.

Homeopathy in cervical spondylitis:

Homeopathy treats the root of the issue after taking into account all symptoms. Listed below are some common homeopathic remedies for spondylitis.

  1. Conium: There is neck pain along with vertigo when lying down or turning in bed. There is constant mild pain in the back of the head and a tight sensation in the forehead region.
  2. Rhus Tox: When the neck pain is worse in the morning and with rest, Rhus is a good option. Moving the neck helps relieve this pain, which is often as a result of some injury.
  3. Kalmia Latifolia: When there is pain extending from the neck to the arm and hand and fingers, Kalmia works wonders. There may also be pain from the nape of the neck to the shoulder blades. The pain is increased with leaning forwards or looking down. The patient may also have nausea with the pain.
  4. Gelsemium: When there is pain extending from the neck to the back of the head, centering in the occipital region. The patient also feels weak, dull, and dizzy. The pain is triggered by emotional excitement.
  5. Silicea: When there is pain extending from the neck to the eyes and forehead, Silicea provides good relief. The patient will have intolerance to cold and feels chilly. The pain is improved by heat pads and lying down.
  6. Calcarea Phos: If the radiographs show bony changes in the cervical spine with the spondylitis, this is very useful. The bony spurs that form can be painful and cause nerve pinching leading to vertigo.

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopathy and ask a free question.

Birthmarks - Know The Different Types!

Birthmarks - Know The Different Types!

Colored marks which are present on the skin since birth or develop soon after birth are called birthmarks. They can be of many sizes, colors and shapes. Some of them are present on the surface, while a few of them are raised over the skin surface. Here are some common types of birthmarks:

  1. Salmon patches: These birthmarks are most commonly found. They are flat and thin, and are mostly present on the back of the neck, the upper lips, eyelids and in some cases, between the eyebrows. They are usually pale pink or reddish in colour and fade within a year. However, those which are on the nape of the neck might stay and become permanent marks.
  2. Congenital moles: Congenital moles appear at birth. They are usually brown in colour and can be of different sizes. While some moles appear as a single mark, others can appear clustered in groups. The moles which become larger, however, need close observation because there remains a possibility of them becoming cancerous later on in life.
  3. Cafe-au-lait spots: They are smoother than other types of patches. They are present from birth and may develop more during childhood. Usually, these spots are not found in the neck or shoulders, but rather at the legs or torso. It is generally not a health scare. However, if these spots appear in clusters and occur in the armpits accompanied with freckles, they might be suggestive of neurofibromatosis later in life.
  4. Mongolian Spots: They are usually present in babies who are born with darker skins. Mongolian spots usually fade by the time the baby has reached school-going age.
  5. Venous Malformations: These are very rare birthmarks which are formed because of the abnormalities in the veins. These are usually bigger than other birthmarks and need to be treated by a process which is known as "embolization". This involves treating the malformation with a solution, thus putting a clog in the blood vessels and shrinking the mark.

The basic lovemaking skills everyone should know

Whether you are just starting out on your sexual journey or you simply need to remind yourself about the basic things that matter in the bedroom, it is essential to know these things.

There are countless tips out there for how to have great sex, kinky sex, spontaneous sex, hotter sex and so on. We are all so focused on taking things a step further that we often forget the basics.

So, if you are about to have sex for the first time, or you simply need a refresher course to remind you that you are still doing things right, then read below.

1. Kissing is still a total turn on

Kissing is the fastest way to build arousal. Full-on make out sessions of three minutes or more work wonders for your sex life. It is essential for foreplay.


2. No need to rush

When you hit the sheets, don't rush to the finishing line or feel pressure 'to perform'. Instead, focus on building a connection. Look into each other's eyes, say each other's name, stop occasionally and just kiss. Don't try to recreate sexy scenes you've seen online or in videos as it can feel loveless and impersonal.

3. What to do with your hands

During a kiss, your hands should be as busy as your mouth. Start warming up your partner's erogenous zones by running your fingertips across their cheeks, lips and jawline.

Men's necks are very sensitive on the front while women's are more sensitive at the back. So, guys, to arouse your partner lift up her hair and drop a kiss on the nape of her neck.
