Know the truth from Nspire Network Media on Vimeo.

Do you know 1 in 3 women will have a hysterectomy by age 60? According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 11.7 percent of women between the ages of 40-44 had a hysterectomy during the surveillance period 2006-2010. Moreover, about 600,000 hysterectomies are performed annually in the United States. Approximately 20 million American women have had a hysterectomy.

Why are Hysterectomies often performed?

  • Uterine fibroids — common, benign (noncancerous) tumors that grow in the muscle of the uterus.
  • More hysterectomies are done because of fibroids than any other problem of the uterus.
  • Sometimes fibroids cause heavy bleeding or pain.
It is a devastating procedure which removes the hope of motherhood and want to have a healthy monthly period. Often these result from the misuse of tampons and the overuse of poorly produced sanitary napkins. A potential solution to lower the risk of hysterectomy is using organic sanitary napkins.

The truth about health threats from ordinary sanitary napkins and tampons

organic sanitary napkins for better women's health.
Tampons and pads with odor neutralizers and artificial fragrances are chemical soups, laced with artificial colors, polyester, adhesives, polyethylene (PET), polypropylene and propylene glycol (PEG). In short, they are contaminants linked to hormone disruption, cancer, birth defects, dryness, and infertility. Investigations have since proved that most menstrual sanitary pads available on the market are produced from recycled paper materials containing print ink and other chemicals which are bleached with chemicals like dioxin and chlorine. Studies have shown that the chemical dioxin and chlorine are cancerous chemicals when they come in contact with the human skin, especially the tender part at the woman’s genitals.
This doesn’t happen right away, but the cancerous effects may be cumulative. Paper cannot absorb a woman’s flow during her period so a plastic paper is placed in between or under the pad for fear of leakage when a woman is bleeding. This plastic between the pad prevents access to the air. As the woman is bleeding wearing this kind of pad, no air enters her body and warmth develops between the pad and her vagina, with the moisture from the blood, this area becomes a breeding ground for germs. The fermentation takes place, which is the reason the pads are smelly after use.

The dangers of traditional sanitary pads

A World Health Organization report indicated within two hours of a woman putting on traditional pads, about 107 different germs develop per cubic centimeter on the surface area of the pad. When pressure is applied on the pad through sitting, the paper does not absorb enough, the pad allows a “back flow” of the blood into the woman’s reproductive system, the germs develop, and the chemicals mix with the blood. This can cause infection to the woman’s reproductive system. Not knowing what to do and what is happening, the woman simply takes this as normal menstrual discomfort.

Possible conditions caused by poor quality sanitary pads during menstruation:

  • External Vaginal inflammations
  • Vaginal itching
  • Vaginal inflammation
  • Cervical Inflammation and erosion
  • Endometrial Inflammation
  • Excessive white discharge
  • Pain in the lower abdomen
  • Fever
  • Feeling nauseous
  • Urge to urinate
  • Urinal pain
  • Sore waist
  • Aching waist
  • Fatigue
  • Genital warts
  • Genital herpes
  • Menstrual disorders (heavy periods, light periods, spotting in between periods, prolonged periods, and menstrual pains)

New study shows cheaters prioritize affair partners over spouses

Valentine's Day chocolates in a box

Happy Valentine’s Day! Ashley Madison has just released a new study examining how cheaters juggle their marriage and their affairs on Valentine’s Day. Turns out cheaters prioritize affair partners over spouses on V-Day.

Check out key findings

  • 30% of cheaters rather spend V-Day w/ their affair partners
  • Cheaters are spending upwards of $250 on affair partners
  • Nearly one-third of cheaters celebrate Valentine’s Day with their affair partner

No more sidelines for the Side Piece this Valentine’s Day

Ashley Madison, the world’s leading married dating website, used its unprecedented access to people who cheat to find out how members juggle the romantic responsibility of celebrating their marriage and their extramarital relationship on the special day.  As it turns out, cheaters spend Valentine’s Day very differently between their two partners and prioritizing a spouse is no longer the status quo with almost a third (28%) of survey respondents opting to spend it with their affair partner.

Spouse vs. Mistress/Misteress

With extramarital partners,  people often aren’t looking to replace their spouse, they’re looking to fulfill unmet needs. That said, it’s clear there is a shift happening and the affair partner is rising up the ranks as it pertains to partner priority.

“Typically, holidays and special occasions are reserved for the spouse and the affair partner is sidelined,” says Isabella Mise, Director of Communications at Ashley Madison. “But for Valentine’s Day this year, we’re seeing that affairs of the heart can lead to new traditions with a greater importance being placed on the extramarital relationship.”

Also interesting is that respondents spend about the same amount of money on their primary partner as they do for their affair partner. According to the survey, more than a third of respondents say they spend between $100-$250 on their affair partner, while the same amount (36%) say they spend $100-$250 when asked how much they spend on their spouse. This is surprising because you’d think the main romantic holiday of the year would be reserved for the primary partner, but this implies there is no real distinction between how they view the importance of each relationship.

 Cheaters spend the same amount on their spouse and affair partner, but spend the money in different ways.

When asked, 71% of respondents say they celebrate Valentine’s Day with their affair partner by having sex, whereas 73% spend Valentine’s Day with their spouse by having dinner. Cheaters are likely spending their money on their spouse during dinner while spending the same amount on things like a hotel room for the affair partner.

“Between how they spend their money and how they spend their time, the members surveyed are demonstrating that there is an increased investment being made with affair partners,” says Mise. “It will be interesting to see if this shift continues.”

Why people cheat: Filling the emotional voids

Emotional affairs and cheating correlate according to a new Ashley Madison study

Today Ashley Madison released a new study examining why people cheat. The main takeaway: besides sex, affair partners are helping cheaters fill emotional voids that spouses aren’t. Here are key findings from the study:

  • Cheaters found more affection (44%) and friendship (42%) w/ affair partners vs. spouses
  • Cheaters say affair partners helped them regain confidence (29%) and feel more desired (48%)

The full study has more interesting data. Here are highlights:

According to the survey, sex is the number one reason people choose to cheat (61%), but the other reasons also show a great deal about why some relationships experience infidelity. Cheaters are actively trying to fill a void in their lives, in their marriages, and in their relationships. Some want to expand the physical elements like exploring new desires (45%), while others are looking for emotional reassurance like affection (44%), friendship (42%) and the feeling of butterflies again (30%).

“The reasons why people cheat are very telling of the types of relationships that people find themselves in,” says Isabella Mise, Director of Communications for Ashley Madison. “When sex and intimacy fade, often times monogamy becomes a struggle for our members but they don’t want to leave their partner altogether. Infidelity is an avenue for them to have certain needs met and stay happy in their primary relationship.”

Stray to Stay

Infidelity is often portrayed as an immoral act and is rarely looked at in a positive light. But the members of AshleyMadison.com aren’t necessarily looking to leave their spouse, they are looking to repair the emptiness that they are feeling. People find themselves in a family, in a loving marriage, in financial stability yet are lacking specific areas in those relationships. And that’s why sex comes up as a top reason for why people cheat. This doesn’t mean they’re looking to fully replace their spouse as 54% survey respondents are only seeking short-term dating. Furthermore, 50% of respondents said they cheat and not leave their spouse because they love their partner but are just looking for more sexual fulfillment.

As a result, survey respondents have revealed what it is they like about having affairs allows them to return to their marriage and their household unit as a happier more satisfied partner. Not surprisingly, for the majority it came down to the fact their sexual needs were met (76%).  For others it made them feel more alive (51%), they felt desired (48%), their emotional needs were met (37%), and they regained their confidence (29%). These are all areas of life that people need to feel secure and be happy, and they get that from finding what they need outside of the marriage when their partner is unable to give them that.

Sure cheating comes with some downsides like potentially getting caught. But for the members of AshleyMadison.com, they aren’t too worried about it. When asked, 71% of respondents said they don’t feel guilty about cheating on their partner, nor is it the top concern for cheaters when entering an affair. So when it comes to cheating, is the risk worth the reward? If the reward means being happy again, then it seems like the answer is yes.

Mini G Spot Vibrator for foreplay, masturbation and sex.
We have a 15% discount just for you. Scroll to the end of the article for the code. Share with friends.

From whips to bullet vibrators, the discussion of sex toys and overall sexual pleasure were topics to discuss behind closed doors. Lucky for us the world is changing and encourages us to think out loud about our deepest fantasies and so much more. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Fromgirltogirl is here to chat sex toys. Our new favorite on-the-go sex toy is the mini bullet vibrator.

About the mini bullet vibrator

Using a mini bullet vibrator has been on our bucket list for a while. We love that it is easy to use and carry around anytime we need it. Some may be surprised, but the mini is powerful for its size. The reason we decided to try the mini bullet is for clitoral stimulation, a favorite among sexual stimulation. But it can do so much more than a great orgasm.

Mini bullet vibrators are not solely for sexual pleasure. Feel free to use it for getting a massage. It feels great and gives better circulation of blood throughout the body. We even use it to relieve muscle pain and tension after working out.

The sex toy every woman should have

When we say every woman should have a mini bullet vibrator, we mean it. Here is what we love about it:

  1. It has the power to give an orgasm in less than 3 minutes. The mini bullet vibrator is especially intense for clitoral stimulation but the toy can stimulate any part of the body.
  2. The mini bullet vibrator can be used during sex as well as with other toys. One of the best ways to truly enjoy sex is to get to know your body. When you know your body, you know where you can reach the most pleasure and guide your sex partner to the right spots. Some favorite spots to use the mini bullet vibrator: the clitoris, nipples, and even the lower back.
  3. The toy is portable. Yes, go and toss your vibrator in your handbag. You may even store it in your pocket. Why? It is a stress reliever when you need it and you never know when you will need that relief. No, you don’t have to use it on your vagina all the time. Sometimes you just need to massage your head because you have a headache. What works for you is what counts.
  4. It makes for a great couples sex toy. For example, you can insert the mini bullet vibrator at the base of dildos, anal toys, or cock rings to offer vibration.

The mini bullet vibrator we got is easy to use, discrete.  Watch the video below to learn more about the benefits:

Top 5 Favorite sex positions for men and women in 2018

top sex positions among cheaters

Ashley Madison reveals what makes extramarital sex so hot.

This week, Ashley Madison ,the world’s leading married dating website, a new study examining sexual preferences with spouses vs. affair partners. The results: affair partners are more daring and generous in bed.

Key Findings

  • 53% never try new sex positions with their spouse while 93% try them with their affair partner
  • Only 38% use sex toys with their spouse while two-thirds (65%) do so with their affair partner
  • 62% say their spouse performs oral on them but 94% say their affair partner gives them oral

Is doggy style a top sex position?

 

Here are ways cheaters keep it sexy in the sack with these 5 positions

When it comes to extramarital affairs, is the sex hotter because desire and risk intersect? Does forbidden sex translate to more experimental sex? Ashley Madison  surveyed a sample of its members to find out how they shake it up between the sheets with their affair partner, how this compares to sex with their spouse, and how men and women differ when it comes to seeking pleasure.

Doggy-Style Is Best in Show

When surveyed members were asked to name their favourite sex position, doggy-style took the top spot for men (53%) and women (57%).  For men, this was followed by cowgirl (woman on top) at 37% and the more basic missionary (man on top) at 36%. Missionary took second place (33%) for women followed by the more nimble legs over the shoulder position (28%).

 

Top 5 Favorite Sex Positions For Males

  • Doggy-style – 53%
  • Cowgirl – 37%
  • Missionary – 36%
  • Sixty-nine – 31%
  • Legs over the shoulder – 30%

Top 5 Favorite Sex Positions For Females

  • Doggy-style – 57%
  • Missionary – 33%
  • Legs over the shoulder – 28%
  • Cowgirl – 25%
  • Legs up – 25%

 red lipstick and sexuality

Are surveyed members actually getting what they like? Not surprisingly, when asked what sex position they perform the most with their spouse the more basic missionary position ranked highest (60%). But when it comes to an extramarital partner, the most performed position is doggy-style (56%), followed by missionary (38%) and the cowgirl position (36%). Since doggy-style is the preferred position for females, it’s no wonder 83% said they are able to reach climax with their extramarital partner.

Playing inside (and outside) the marital bedroom

A lack of inhibition is much more common in extramarital encounters because they allow people to break out of their routine with someone they may or may not see again. That’s likely why 53% of respondents refrain from trying new sex positions with their spouse while 93% say they do try with their extramarital partner. It seems there is a greater willingness to infuse more adventure and creativity into their affair rather than improving the sex inside their marriage.

When it comes to play inside the bedroom, 38% admit to using sex toys with their spouse while more than half (65%) say they do so with their affair partner. As for roleplay, 16% engage in role play with their spouse compared to 48% engaging in role play with their extramarital partner.

What about giving and receiving? Almost three-quarters (74%) of respondents perform oral sex on their spouse with 62% saying their spouse performs oral sex on them. However, a whopping 90% say they perform oral sex on their extramarital partner with a further 94% saying their extramarital partner performs oral sex on them. Although many have oral sex with their spouse, there is a clearly more occurring between respondents in their extramarital relationships.

When asked where they prefer to have sex, most respondents (88%) said they like the mix it up both having sex inside and outside of the bedroom.

New report: cheaters won’t stop cheating in 2018 . Here’s why.

Cheating for cheaters

Whether you are a cheater or been cheated on,  cheaters won’t stop cheating in 2018. In a new report, Ashley Madison, the #1 website worldwide for married dating and affairs, polled 4,000 of its users to identify the top New Year’s resolutions among those with extramarital partners. Here are the top-3:

  • 34% say increasing the amount of new experiences with their extramarital partner
  • 31% say being healthier by eating better and exercising
  • 13% say spending more time with their extramarital partner

    Findings

    Bottom line:  The Ashley Madison data reveals that cheaters are planning more adulterous fun in the New Year.  At the end of the day cheaters are quite content with how their relationships (well, at least one of their relationships) are going and don’t need a resolution because of it. In this survey, 65% of respondents say they are either having an affair or pursuing an affair, of which 73% already have one extramarital partner, with 27% having multiple partners now.

Planning a New Year’s resolution is something that people do when they want to make a positive change in their lives, a change to make them happier, says Isabella Mise, Director of Communications for Ashley Madison. Our members are showing us that they are already happy or on a pathway to finding happiness and that’s why they don’t feel the need to make a New Year’s resolution.

52% of cheaters say spouse not fit, motivation to cheat

Infidelity at the gym ... cheating
Ashley Madison data reveals that infidelity motivates higher levels of personal fitness.

Is getting into shape one of your new year’s resolutions? Don’t give up. Getting in shape is a big resolution each year and Ashley Madison , the world’s leading married dating website, surveyed its members to find out if their extramarital relationships motivated them to live a healthier lifestyle by exercising. The survey results show that cheaters are more likely to stay in shape while in an extramarital relationship.Here are key takeaways from their study:

  • 52% say their spouse isn’t fit and 58% say they wish their spouse exercised more
  • 70% say that their extramarital relationships actually motivate them to stay fit
  • 12% of women (vs. 9 % of men) use the excuse of ‘going to the gym’ to meet their extramarital partner

The findings also go into the top exercises that turn people on (male vs. female) and much more. Check it out below:

Nearly half (41%) of respondents exercise 2-5 times per week and 80% consider themselves to have an average level of physical fitness. But it’s not the new year’s resolutions that are keeping cheaters fit, 70% of survey respondents say it’s their extramarital relationships that motivate them. This goes both ways as 71% consider their extramarital partner to be fit and/or seek an extramarital partner that is fit. Not surprising because let’s face it, healthy is sexy.

But if they’re in search of someone who is fit, does this mean their spouse doesn’t fall into this category? The answer is yes with 52% saying they don’t consider their spouse to be fit and 58% saying they wish their spouse exercised more often.

Working out or “Working out”?

Gyms are noticeably busier in January, bringing new people together and more wandering eyes. In a previous survey of Ashley Madison members, going to the gym was the fifth most common excuse for men (9%) and women (12%) when planning to meet with their extramarital partner. However, in a recent survey done of Ashley Madison members, when cheaters do go to the gym 73% say they are there strictly to exercise and not to seek an extramarital partner. Moreover, 72% are not likely to exercise with their spouse or their secret partner.

Even though they aren’t consciously seeking an affair at the gym, it doesn’t mean there aren’t certain exercises that work as a turn on for gym goers. The top exercise that turns people on most is yoga/stretching (51%), followed by squats (19%).

Top exercises that turn people on the most when someone else performs them

  • Yoga/stretching – 51%
  • Squats – 19%
  • Other – 13%
  • Bicep curls – 6%
  • Stationary bike – 3%

What to say when someone hurts your feelings and not hide your truth

How to react when someone hurts your feelings

Ava Miles, who has recently released a new series of non-fiction books, is helping women let themselves be more comfortable expressing their inner goddesses. Miles shares with us on how to handle and what to say when someone hurts our feelings through her series The Goddess Guides to Being a Woman. If you read “Goddesses Don’t Do Drama: Removing Toxicity from Relationships,”which is one of the books from the series, it helps people get through relationship moments when they are feeling hurt or angry.

It takes courage to go from hurt to healing. What’s one of Ava’s secrets in knowing what to say when someone hurts your feelings? Transforming unhealthy relationship patterns.

According to Miles, many of us never learned how to express anger and sadness. Sometimes that may be the case because we are encouraged not to do so. We simply don’t know how to say things kindly when we’re upset. And sometimes it can make us physically ill and unhappy.

“You don’t have to walk away or wait until after the ‘f*ck you’ to speak your truth,” says Miles. It all begins with recognizing and removing victim/perpetrator language from the conversation.

What Is Victim/Perpetrator Language?

Here are some examples:

  • It’s all your fault.
  • You did this.
  • You’re to blame for this.
  • You’re wrong.
  • You’re not giving me enough.
  • This isn’t good enough.
  • You’re not pulling your weight.

Victim/perpetrator language is the language of drama. In order to get to the open-hearted, honest, loving communication we all crave — we need to begin to recognize and move away from the raised-voice or talk-to-the-hand variety. Ava invites us all to try our hand at goddess-woman language by using statements such as:

  • I feel…
  • What I think I hear you saying is…
  • This is hard for me to say, but I’d like to share this with you…
  • This doesn’t feel very loving or kind to me.
  • I want to understand.
  • My feelings are my responsibility.
  • I take responsibility for my part in _______.

“Goddess women use words that convey love, compassion, kindness, affirmation, and honesty,” says Miles. “Sure, we all have moments when we might not be able to package our feelings and thoughts into a big red bow, and that’s okay. We can be honest about that too.”
