Product Highlight: Master Series Governor

We all want to rule with an iron fist, be the masters of all domains or at least our own. Yet so many of us are nothing but desk jockeys, eyeing the world behind office partitions and daydreaming of a life well-spent.

We go to high school and are told the best thing for us to do is to get a college education. Most go to college and some graduate. Most people end up in an entry-level office job hoping to one day rise to middle management. They want the American dream: a house with a picket fence, a yard, spouse, 2.5 kids and maybe a dog. Most people, with or without college, will get that to some degree, but it all comes with crippling debt. They sign mortgage papers so they will pay the bank for 30 years. The house for $150,000 will cost about $250,000 with all the interest and let’s not get into taxes. If they are lucky then they’ll pay off that house within 20 years, but I doubt that because refinancing seems so much better. That way they can afford all the toys everyone else has: a boat, an RV, a motorcycle, orthodontist bills, plastic surgery, and so on and so forth.

Fast forward to age 65, they hate their job and want to retire but can’t, because they’re still paying off an infinite amount of debt. Looks like all control was lost to have the “Dream” lifestyle but they’re OK with it because they decided to pay out of the ass a bit more to put their kids through college. It was all worth it, huh?

Well now there is a better solution. Instead of getting fist fucked by life over the span of 30 or more years with crippling debt, do yourself a favor and actually go out and enjoy that life. But first pick yourself up a Master Series life-sized steel fist, AKA “The Governor”. That way when people ask why you don’t work a traditional job, why you decided to go enjoy the short period of time you have on this earth, you can say, “Don’t worry! I skipped the hassle of lifelong crippling debt and fist-fucked myself!”

The Governor is a solid eight pounds of steel to reinforce that you are the master of your own domain. It has a solid base to it, so you can lower yourself down without worrying if it will tip or move. You may want to use a lube with this, which is much more than what life will provide before giving it to you up the ass. Its sleek design also makes it a beautiful centerpiece for your mantel, which certainly will generate great dinner-party conservation.

You CAN take control of your life back from society while still taking it up the ass like your friends and family members do, because let’s be honest: misery loves company! Get the Governor and enjoy a good fist up the ass today!

Sex in a relationship, how important can it be

How important is sex in a relationship? Seems like a fairly simple and possibly stupid question, yet the answer goes much deeper than most people think. On the surface, sex in a relationship is the difference between having a best friend and having a lover, between casual encounter and waking up next to your best friend every day. Sex in a relationship is what builds trust, breaks down the barriers of being self-conscience and builds intimacy in your life. Now I am not saying that you must have sex with your partner to achieve trust and intimacy, however, in long-term relationships sex and the amount of it can be a deciding factor in staying together and going your separate ways. In this article I will break down the five major causes for relationships falling apart and give my advice on how to avoid this fate for you.

Marriages and or domestic unions usually fail for one of five reasons: money, rushing into it, infidelity, sex and simply growing apart. As we examine all five of these areas, I will provide my inside on how keeping up with number four (sex) can nearly tackle the other four problems on the list. As a disclaimer, I am 30 years old and have been married slightly more than four years. We were married in a courthouse after one year of dating and living together for 7 months. We are not religious and did not get married because she was pregnant (we only have a dog-son). So already I can tell you that number two on the list (rushing into it) can be a problem, but if our relationship can overcome it, then so can yours. We are currently doing just fine, enjoying our life in Portage, Michigan.

First up on our list is money, and that “god” that we worship known as money can crush you and your partner faster than you think. As a person never coming from much money, it is easy to want it, love it and spend it like you’ll die tomorrow once you have it. What can be even worse than spending it all like it will never run out is having your partner blow through your money. There is no doubt why it tops our list because money dictates just about everybody’s lives. Depending on how the two of you view your money plays a big factor into how it affects your marriage or union. If money is viewed as something that you need to survive only, then you should be all set. If money is something that you worship, then your union can be nothing more than a house of cards. So long as the fund are flowing, everyone is happy. However, whenever that river of money ends, if it does, it is sure to bring serious ripples in your relationship. It can start with the blame game, distorts your social status, and simply will make you give up some of the perks that money brings. After years of enjoying such perks, it is not easy to simply give them up. This is the point where the house of cards needs little more than a gentle breeze to start tipping over. This problem of money can be minimized, however, by maintaining a healthy sex life. If they two of you are in love, appreciate your time together and are open, then the river of money stopping can be far less of a burden on your relationship. It can be tough to see friends and family acquire money and spend it as they please. Especially if you once had money and lived the same life. Then suddenly you lose it and there will be one thing that can make it easier is always telling yourself that you will maintain a solid and healthy sex life. Regardless of how much money you have or make, maintain that same level of intimacy and money problems can be far less daunting. It doesn’t take money to have sex, and fun sex at that, and having a partner that enjoys the same-sex life as you can be much more rewarding. It is amazing how fast you can forget about money when you just had an amazing orgasm, and you can’t pay for that, not normally at least.

Next up on the list is rushing into marriage or domestic partnerships. As mentioned, that is exactly how my marriage started out, and it came with the struggles that you all might imagine. There is the sharing of money and accounts, dealing with family and family problems you perhaps didn’t know about, just to name a couple. Let’s not forget the insecurities that were not talked about, the kind that take years of trust to finally get out of people, if they even want to talk about them. The list can go on, however, I have only a couple of bits of advice. One is keep the newly wed sex going because that can cure many of fights that the few listed problems may bring. Along with that is always keep open communication, no matter how difficult that can be. Take it from me, I don’t like to open up all that often, but it is necessary if you want to have a successful marriage. Communication is also key to avoiding problem number five, but that is for the end. If you rushed into marriage and are now having troubles, do not worry, keep the communication open and try have sex or make love, even if you aren’t quite feeling it.

Number three on our list is infidelity, and I don’t have much advice here. A couple of ways to keep your partner from straying is a healthy sex life at home and keeping the communication alive. When I say keep the communication alive, I am not referring bullshit talk at dinner. I am talking about real conversations about love, life and all things going on in the world. Listen, listen, and listen to what your partner is saying and respect their decision. You are with him or her for a reason and you may not share all views, but at least listen to theirs. Go ahead and not listen or hardly listen and you are going to have a hard time with your relationship. Listen in all relationships, whether your best friend or coworker. Always listen and you will be amazed at how well life can be for you, and how much you will learn in the process.

If your partner is still going to stray, leave that motherfucker immediately. You are a fucking fool to stay with your partner if they cheat on you, period. There is nothing they can do to make up for cheating on the person they claimed they would remain faithful to. If your friends let you go back to that person, or stand by you when you do go back to that person, they are not a friend. Do not tolerate cheating, have some class and dignity for yourself.

The fourth reason for failed marriages is sex. If you are reading this article then you will read all the ways that you can keep your relationship going. However, there are other ways to keep sex exciting and not have it be why your marriage or union collapsed. One way to keep sex exciting to keep the communication channels open, and be willing to discuss what it is that your partner wants. Does he or she want to butt play but you aren’t sure? Talk it over, do some research and clear the air. Perhaps you can find a middle ground that pleases you both. With the 50 Shades of Grey books out, perhaps your partner wants some light bondage, and why not? Again, do your research and see what it is all about. Most people shy away from trying new things out of ignorance, don’t be ignorant, read about it and then make a decision. Keeping your sex life alive and new can be very exciting. It can break up your dreaded work week and give extra excitement to the weekend. It first starts with listening to your partner and their needs and then stopping by to see what exciting items they have to spice up your sex life.

Last on our top five reasons why marriages fail is simply growing apart. Sometimes there just isn’t anything that can be done for this. People change, their views change and the closer you get to death the more you think about life and especially your own life. To say it again, a way to avoid this problem is communicate, stay open and change together. Listen to what your partner is saying, perhaps their new ideas would be interesting to you and would lead to some self-discoveries of your own. You won’t know until you listen and try. We live in a vast world with a lot to do and see, so keep those ever-growing ears open and don’t be an asshole and dismiss everything your partner says. You married him or her for a reason, so start showing it. “Til death do us part” is something you both said, you both signed that contract so start acting like it.

Now this isn’t the end all cure for keeping people together, however it is a good start. Relationships start and stop every day and that is just how life is. There are cures for most of the problems relationships face and most can be solved with open communication and a good healthy sex life. Open communication is most likely the best way to keep relationships going, by knowing what your partner wants or is thinking is like gold. Being able to talk for hours about everything is an amazing feeling and it builds trust and intimacy fast. Couple that with a healthy continuing sex life and your union should be solid. Once one of those two start to go, you can quickly let the list of five items above sweep in and do their damage.

Feedback: The first 30 days


When the President of the United States is elected there’s a lot of rhetoric about his first 100 days in office. How much can he accomplish? What changes can he implement? Who is his new cabinet team? Who is fired or who resigns? The media beats the whole concept to death and if you really think about it 100 days isn’t much time to accomplish a whole lot. It’s only 3 months and 10 days, just over a quarter of the year!

Product Highlight: Aneros Eupho

The Aneros Eupho is a medically-designed male G-spot stimulator made of high quality plastic. The Eupho has 4 inches of usable length and a curved design, proving to be an effective hands-free and self-pivoting G-spot stimulator that simultaneously massages the G-spot and perineum culminating in an intense and heightened climactic experience.

This Aneros Eupho is derived from modern design and ancient eroticism. The anal region has the most nerve endings per square inch than any other part of the human body, making it a playground for pleasure. The Aneros Eupho delivers in so many ways and as the official description claims, “The Aneros stimulates, circulates, and electrifies all the key components of an orgasm not central to the penis…” and they did not make any of this up.

The Aneros Eupho has a smooth, rounded tip that is easy to insert with the help of a little lubrication. We understand that massaging the male g-spot might be different strokes for different folks, but if you are looking to try it out for the first time, this is a solid start. With great maneuverability this toy can be “worked” or work on its own, each way creating intense pleasure in way perhaps never thought of before. Be sure to always clean your toys after use with either a toy cleaner or warm, soapy water and store in a closed place to avoid dust and bugs.

Also as claimed, the Aneros Eupho facilitates in creating one of the best orgasms a man can have, from a non-traditional area that typically needs more exposure. It can be used both with a partner and alone, by the newbie or the most experienced pleasure-seekers. Regardless of where you are at in your sexual life, this is one toy that is sure to please.

Product Highlight: Tantus Charmer

Today we take a look at the Tantus Charmer, a female G-Spot dildo designed for those who have trouble finding the infamous female G-Spot. Many people don’t know where the female G-Spot is and think they might need a six-inch or longer dildo inserted entirely inside the vagina.

The Tantus Charmer, a 6.5-inch-long and 1.5-inch-wide dildo, is built with 4 ridges to hit the G-spot, so you can hit it four times by inserting only two inches. Contrary to popular belief, the G-spot (also known as the urethral sponge) is located only one-to-three inches inside the vaginal opening, and with the design of the Charmer, you are sure to hit it two to three times going in and out.

Some other reviews may claim that the dildo isn’t wide enough and therefore does little for the vagina. If you feel that’s the case for you, it can also make a great anal toy. The curved tip makes it easy for insertion and the ridges add an extra level of stimulation to the prostate. Also the wide base, which makes it compatible with strap-on kits, assures that you will not lose this in your bum.

This Tantus Charmer is made of 100% silicone which makes it very safe and easily washable. If you’re using a toy cleaner, simply spray and wipe down. You may also clean it by putting it on the top shelf of your dishwasher and running it through a cycle. After cleaning, be sure to keep it in a safe, closed container to avoid the risk of dust or bugs getting into it.

Tantus brand makes some of the most durable sex toy products on the market, so you can rest assure the Charmer will be sure to charm your G-spot for some time to come!
