Black Friday - Looks A lot like Looting


The American public has found a way to make a holiday out of shopping and fighting.  It is a Jerry Springer show waiting to happen.  What a stupid idea to put everything on sale on one day so that you have fights over items, people stressed beyond believe, and stores packed so tight you can't even get around.  What a great way to start the holiday season!  If you look at the picture above it looks more like people looting than actually shopping.  This should be a wonderful day to spend with the family not one fighting over a piece of electronics or toys with strangers.

Imortalize Your Love


How many picture of the two of you do you have?  I would guess not enough.  One sure way to immortalize your love it to have lot of picture of the two of you in different places.  You don't have to go so far as having a statue made but if that works for you go for it.  The point of all this is to have items that are visual images of your love for each other.  Those visuals of your love can help serve as a constant reminder of your love for each other.

Get a jump on your fireplace now.


For those of you lucky enough to have a fire place inside your house, now is the time to get things ready for those romantic nights spend in front of the fire as the snow flies. Do some initial checking to make sure you fire place is clean and ready to warm up the night. Hire a chimney sweep to get a professional job, they really are not that expensive and will add live and safety to your fire place. Once you know that the fire place is ready it is time to make sure the area around the fireplace is ready. Do you have comfortable chairs to relax in as the you listen to the crackle of the wood. Speaking of wood have you stocked up on it, once the first snow starts falling it makes it a little harder to get the wood and if you pay for it, it will be more expensive once the snow hits. Make sure you have plenty of tables around for sitting drinks or books or anything else you might need as the fire warms you up. Stock up on your favorite relaxing drink and make sure you have the proper tools to work with the fire. All this work might seem a bit much right now but think of it this way when your partner drops their robe to reveal a sexy little nighty the last think you want to worry about is that it is getting cold in the room. Now on the other hand if you have everything in place you are free to enjoy that little nighty, too

Play in the Leaves


As a kids we use to have the grandest time playing in the leaves.  Now leaves just are about raking and chores to us.  I remember the days when we would rake all the leaves in our yard just to make a pile big enough to jump into.  You know this can still be a fun activity for us in our adult life.  If you have kids you have an in right there.  If not invite the neighbor children (with their parents permission) to come down and help celebrate fall with you, heck why not just invite the neighborhood over.  

One year as kids we collected leaves from every yard in the neighborhood.  Dragged them down to one house with a old bed sheet and made a monster pile of leaves.  The entire neighborhood came down and either jumped in or took pictures / video.  Why not start that tradition in your neighborhood, the kids will love it and you can let that inner kid in you out to play for a while

Where would you leave a love note for your partner?



Our readers respond to the best places to leave a love note for your partner. It seems that our readers enjoy leaving hand written notes for their lovers to find in places like, in a pocket of their clothes, or on their pillow (both of these received 37% of the votes) Sending the note via the regular mail and texting both brought a response of 12%. Our readers would avoid sending a love note over email or voice mail. So it seems the old fashion hand written note works the best left in a place for them to discover it later.

Careful What You Say Around Your Kids


I was just sitting in the living room when my 5 year old son just says, "I'm Horny"  Now I know that he got the line off the movie Grown Ups.  However my concern rises where he might be saying this at school, leading his teachers to wonder why he is saying this.  We explained that it isn't something to say for a young person but as I am explaining this to him.  He shows me a toy and the toy has a horn on it's head.  He points to it and says well he is horny!  The innocent age is wonderful and one day he will really will be horny but for today it is just his toy!

5 Ways to Make Sex Sensual

Here is a guest post we did for Get Lusty for couples 

5 Ways to Make Sex Sensual


When you hear the word “sensual” you are most likely going to relate it to something sexual. If someone says to you, “You should try these strawberries. They are the most sensual fruit I have ever tasted,” where does your mind go?

Does it click in on just the fact that those strawberries must have been ripened to perfection? Or does your mind instantly click to a sexy image of biting into the fruit? What if someone offers to take you on a sensual journey? The first thing that probably comes to mind is the sexual scenario implied by such an offer and not the possibility he/she was just inviting you to the local grocery and department store. That could be sensual after all – taste this food, smell that cologne, feel this fabric, hear that song, read those tabloid headlines. 

Yet, isn’t doing your regular shopping something you sometimes dread. It has become boring. It feels like a chore. You just want to hurry up and get it over with because you know you need to do it, but really don’t want to. Uh oh, those descriptions might well cover something else in your life. Sex. 

Sex can absolutely be animalistic and a rip your clothes off and jump on your partner experience, but it can be very slow and sensual too. It should never just be about taking off your clothes, getting under the covers, groping each other a couple of minutes and then bumping and grinding for a few more minutes. So, how can you explore sensuality and bring it back into your sex life? Remember that sensual means that you are gratifying the senses. Satisfying all of your desires such as seeing, touching, smelling, hearing, and tasting is where sensuality really arrives on the scene. And, guess what, satisfying your sixth sense – your intuition or spiritual self is quite sensual too.

Here are 5 ways to make your intimate play sensual. Bonus: Call it intimate play ;) That changes it up right from the start.

#1 Focus on sensation

Wear clothing that feels good on your skin. Silk is a common suggestion here as it is cool to touch and so smooth. The feel of it brushing against your skin throughout the day can be a turn on. And, when your partner touches you through the silk that can be extremely exciting for both of you. If you don’t want to wear a sensual type of material during the day, then pick up some silk scarves or a feather or something velvety. Then you can use these different items to drag over your lover’s skin later in the evening. Focus on the sensation of the material or item touching you. It may be relaxing, tickly, or it may just have you ready to grab your lover and get busy.

#2 Light up your senses

Bring different flavors and smells into your lovemaking. One interesting way to do this is to get the Sexy Challenge: Lips Like Sugar as it offers you unique insight into trying different tastes with and/or upon your partner. Adding different flavors to your physically intimate life with your beloved can occur in a variety of ways. Food may seem like an obvious thing to bring into your lovemaking and there are many ways to do that, but don’t overlook flavored lubes as well. There are also a vast number of ways to bring in amazing aromas. Scented candles (we always recommend flameless candles for safety), lotions, colognes, lubes, and the different food items are all great ways to enhance your sensuality.

#3 Listen

What about hearing? How can you make that sensual? You could whisper sexy phrases or words of love into your partner’s ear. You could turn on music that you both enjoy and that will get you in the mood.

But, what about hearing the sound of your lover’s laughter! Bringing laughter and silliness into your sex life can be an amazing experience. Just let go and be goofy together. Laughter and lightheartedness will bring powerful, playful passion into your life and hopefully, you will come to appreciate the sensuous sound of your lover’s laugh.

#4 Massage

Time for a little naked massage! Yay! This actually satisfies more than one sense. With low lighting you can visually soak up the beauty of your sweetie all oiled up and glistening, but you can enjoy the aromas of scented oils or just the animalistic smell of him/her too. With both of you naked you can take turns rubbing your hands, your feet and your entire body – yep, genitals are great massage tools too – over your lover. 

#5 Focus on their pleasure

Last, but not least, we highly recommend that you pay attention and be consciously aware not only during foreplay and lovemaking, but at the peak of orgasm, after you are coming down from orgasm and for the next couple of days.

How do you feel? Did you notice anything out of the ordinary – visions, images, an extreme sense of bliss or simply like you entered a void or time was suspended? Sexual orgasmic energy taps you into the creative source (call it whatever you like – the Universe, Spirit, God, the Divine or even I don’t know what it is, but it sure feels goooood). This access to creativity through orgasm is why we want you to pay attention up to a few days later to see if you are more creative, have new ideas, solve problems easier than normal or maybe you just have a bigger smile on your face and feel energized. 

Use these five ways to bring more sensuality into your sex life and we believe you will transform your relationship and take your intimacy to a higher level – no matter where it is now. 


We're so excited to get a couple writing for GetLusty! They're both adorable, smart and altogether wonderful!

Just Go With It


On a weekend trip to Hawaii, a plastic surgeon convinces his loyal assistant to pose as his soon-to-be-divorced wife in order to cover up a careless lie he told to his much-younger girlfriend.

Adam Sandler hits another home run in this movie that shows you that sometimes love is right under your nose! This movie will have you snuggled up laughing and remembering why you love your partner.

Eating better for Intimacy



Don't feel well? Take a pill. A few pounds to lose? Take a pill. No energy? Take a pill. Depressed? Take a pill. Today's society is a pill society. Many studies have been done to show that if people are given a placebo (sugar pill) and told that it will increase their sexual performance; the majority will say that they noticed an increase in their sexual performance. It has proven that enhancing the libido, at least the most important part of it, comes from the mind. So now we wonder, how does food affect a person's sexual and emotional health?
Soy can be used to suppress hot flashes that occur hot flashes, promote a healthy prostate, and help in vaginal lubrication. It adheres to estrogen receptors which maintain the lubrication that a vagina needs. This is a problem that also occurs during menopause. Chili peppers can improve your circulation and stimulate nerve endings. Ginger can do the same thing. Because this improves, so will your sexual pleasure.
Since good blood flow is important for a good erection food that is good for your heart will also be good for your penis. If your heart is not operating properly there is a very good chance that your penis will not be responding as well as you would like it to either. Since saturated fat will clog the arteries, which in turn will restrict the blood flow, it stands to reason that it also restricts the blood flow that reaches your genital region as well. Yes, your body does require fat to create hormones, but it needs the right kind of fats. Good fat comes from olive oils, sea food, and nuts. These good fats will help in the production of hormones that are essential for sexual peak performance.
Foods that are said to have aphrodisiac qualities are asparagus, bananas, eel, oysters, figs, and ginseng. Rhino horn is said to increase the sexual appetite. The taste, texture, or perhaps appearance of these foods are thought to increase the sex drive. There are some that believe if you eat foods that appear penis like it will make your penis strong and like the food that you ingest. The same applies to the oyster or the fig, which either smell or look like the woman's vulva when aroused. When a person eats these foods they are in the hopes that the vulva will then become plump, slippery, and tasty as well.
Sweet or spicy foods are thought to put people in a relaxed mood and to appear ready to take on more pleasure.
Now the question remains, do these food myths work? No, not the way that they are said to work. Foods cannot change the way that your sexual organs look. Food can be a great way to spice up your sex life though, so why not?
Drinking alcohol will relax you emotionally and physically make you look flushed. For a short amount of time it will make you look flushed. Caffeine and sugar offer a quick boost of energy. These are short term effects but in reality what you should do is eat a healthy diet of fish and fresh vegetables to be at your best physically and sexually at all times.
You can make food part of your sexual experience by cooking a meal with your lover and feeding it to each other. Have a picnic in the middle of the floor, place the foods all around you and let your imagination take over. 'The Karma Sutra' suggests boiling a ram's or goat's testicle in sweetened milk with sparrow's eggs and rice and honey for an aphrodisiac.

Vitamin O


Vitamin O

We all know how important it is for the body to get the vitamins and minerals it needs.  But, have you ever stopped to think about what your body gets from orgasms?  I think far too many people look past orgasms as being purely pleasure.  While orgasms are incredibly pleasurable, they also give your body many more things that you need.  The health benefits of orgasm have been scientifically proven.  However, it goes truly goes beyond the physical.  Orgasms are a connection to the Divine, the void, God or whatever you want to call it.  

Has this got you thinking?  Now you might consider Vitamin O as a major part of your overall life and not just a health aid.

Is Sex Yoga?


Here is a question for you was sex at one time yoga could it be the other way around could yoga have been sex?  As we look back to the Kama Sutra and we see these vary different sexual positions I can't help but think about how closely they resemble yoga?  While here in the USA we have broken both yoga and sex into physical activities, there are both actually very spiritual pursuits.  Could they have been at one time one in the same?  Allowing lovers to connect their bodies and souls in spiritual bliss.  Maybe this is a bit of a stretch (no pun intended) or maybe it is more actual than we want to believe.

Lock Up Those Valuable (Sex Toys)

Here is a box that you could use as a safe for your sex toys.  


We all hear stories about couples that are embarrassed by their young children getting into that magical drawer beside the bed.   You know the one where all the goodies are kept for easy access during love making.   The solution is so simple just get a case with a lock on it.  You could even get a fire proof box to keep those items even safer.  The point of all this is now your children will not have access to these items.  Now you don't have to worry about them coming into the living room while you have quests over with those interesting items.

The Painted Picture


I feel that every couple should create a work of art out of their love.  So much so that they can actually create the work and hang it in their home.  Using their bodies and their passion to create this work of art will create an amazing work to enjoy for a long long time.

Kissing and Germs


Does kissing pass germs back and forth between a couple?  If that were the case I believe that we would never be able to get rid of any type of virus.  We would pass it back forth constantly.  I personally think that as we share everything in our lives as a couple that we share the germs too.  Thusly we share the germs and don't just pass them back and forth.  So in my mind in terms of a couple that live together they don't have germs for both people but they have couples germs.  So don't worry about kissing each other when your sick.  I feel that the energy of the love you pass far out weighs the germs that you will be sharing.

Meet Me At The Coffee Shop


Okay as relationship go we usually spend most of our time together in our dwelling.  While this convenient it is not always the best thing to just sit around the house together.  I suggest getting out and finding the smallest coffee shop in your area you can.  Make it a date once a week to meet for a cup of coffee or tea and have some amazing conversations.  Coffee shops are famous for fostering conversation and it will get you out of your normal home life.  Plus the smells are amazing in a coffee shop.  All these wonderful things will breath into your relationship soon you will be calling your partner and saying, "Meet me at OUR coffee shop"

Start a Change Jar!


As a couple it is hard sometimes to fit things into your budget. Especially those things that are not necessities of life. This is why you need to start a change jar. Simply find a jar that can hold lots of coins and start chucking all your loose change into the jar. Here is the important part, stay out of the jar. Don't get into it for change for the vending machine or for other little things that would deplete your new funds. This money is to be used for frivolous things. Things such as vacations, or date night for the two of you. The moment you give in and start extracting money your special times will go right out the door with it. Plus no one counts on the change that accumulates in your pockets so it seems like free and clear money. This way you won't be feeling guilty about taking that vacation or going to that fancy restaurant on only your change. Make sure you get a big enough jar to hold all the fund and set up a savings account to hold it if your jar gets to full. You have to be tough and refuse to dip into the jar but with a little self discipline you shouldn't have to much trouble and when you are on the beach somewhere you will be glad you didn't get into it.

The Opposite

King of doing the Opposite George Costanza
It is funny that sometimes we feel like we always make the wrong choice.  We constantly sit around and ponder what would have been different if we made the other choice.  Now this only happens when things go wrong.  If your life seems to be taking all wrong turns then maybe you do need to go against the grain and choose a little differently.  The clip below might make you think about it.  The point of all this is step out of your comfort zone from time to time and see what happens.

Capture The Energy of Art Together

Van Gogh was one of the best artists at capturing energy on canvass.
One thing I love to do and share with my partner is to stand in front of an amazing work of art and just absorb the energy that the artists put into the work of art.  The beauty of this is that it can be from a well known artists such as the Van Gogh above or an unknown artists.  The energy that each artists puts into their work is the most energy that they can offer.  It is not only energy it is passion and if the two of you can soak this up and bring it home with you, well the possibilities are endless.  Allowing this energy and passion to flow through you and energize your creative side, now that my friends is power.

Cold BBQ's


Okay I know it is starting to get a little colder out and grilling season is about over.  However I want you to start planning a little cold weather BBQ.  I want you to keep your eyes open this early part of winter for the first day it snows a good amount.  Then as a couple call or email all your friend and invite them over for a winter cook out.   I am sure you will get some odd looks and comments.  Surprise your friends by heating up the grill cooking those amazing burgers on the grill and icing down the beer and wine in the snow.  Fill out the day by playing games inside or watching your favorite team play football.  You could possibly start a winter tradition that everyone will be waiting for.

    • Are you ready to experience spiritual growth individually and as a couple?
    • Are you ready to think spiritually and sensually outside the box?
    Yes!  Then you are in the right place.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    We will be sharing 3 key points on how to awaken to the magical power of sacred intimacy in your relationship.
    These key points focus on:
    • Intention
    • Attention
    • Sexual Tension (Sexual Energy)
    We will share a couple of exercises with you during this meetup that are appropriate to do in a group - when you are in the privacy of your home you will be able to adjust them to be more intimate with your partner/spouse/lover.
    **All attendees will receive a packet, which includes a Sexy Challenge: Sacred & Sensual Experience for Lovers, an Intimate Adventure: Sacred Ceremony for Couples, an Energy Circle Exercise and more.
