Couples and Sexuality – Amp Up Your Sex Life This Summer by Cooling Down!

Would you like to beat the heat to enhance your sex life this summer?  Extreme heat in the summer months can be a love repellant, especially when you feel hot and bothered or when the kids are up and around for more hours.  This can create a challenge for you making love with your partner.  Does this sound familiar?  If so, read on for some solutions…. It’s a hot one this year!  Keeping hydrated with clean water at all times is of the utmost importance for your health and your sex life, no matter what activities you do.  Here are five fun and affordable ideas on keeping your love life hot while your body stays cool this summer: Love tip 1: Pool party for two
Cool down in the water then heat things up!  Float, relax, and break out the rafts and noodles; whatever floats your boat!  Play some nice soft music while you dip.  Taking a swim in your pool is a wonderful way to cool down and connect.  Remember to flirt, hug, and smooch in the pool to amp things up.  If you have a private pool, then skinny dipping can be very daring and arousing.  Take your time- move slowly towards and away from each other playfully.  Making love in the water is a fun way to share your passion while staying cool, especially at night when the temperature drops a bit.  If you have kids, send them to Grandmas or your favorite sitter for the night! Love tip 2: Romantic indoor picnic: 
Buy or prepare some cool treats for the two of you- veggie platter, cold salads, fruits, cheeses or anything else chilled and easy that you enjoy eating together.  Make some cold drinks such as spiked lemonade, Mojitos or Margaritas.  Remember that alcohol dehydrates, so drink some extra water with your picnic dinner.  Set up your picnic blanket in the middle of the room.  Light some small candle jars around the room and set the mood.  One or both of you can prepare the feast. Feed each other slowly in-between kissing and teasing each other.  Enjoy yourselves by candlelight.  You can also enhance the mood with nature CDs such as ocean, forest, lake, or whatever you find most romantic.  Tonight, make love in a different room, such as the living room on the picnic blanket.  Focus on giving each other oral pleasure tonight, so each of you has a turn to lay back, relax, and stay cool while enjoying the bliss of orgasm! 
Love tip 3: Romantic movie date: This cool date can be at home or out.  If you go out to the movies, find a very romantic movie out in the theaters.  There is usually at least one each summer.  Find a seat in the back of the theater.  Hold hands!  Steal a kiss or two.  Whisper sweet something to each other about what you will do to each other later.  Share some popcorn and chilled water while you enjoy the movie.  Laugh, cry, and then go home to make love. Love tip 4: Racy movie date: 
If you are at home, rent or buy a racy movie.  There is a company called Candida Royalle that offers some softer adult films with cheesy romantic story lines.  One site you can get them at is Adam Eve.  You can also find some harder core adult films on that site, depending on your tastes.  You can have fun with these movies, giggle or reenact some of the scenes together.  Try some different sexual positions tonight, such as woman on top facing away from the man.  This allows for maximum air circulation and freedom to move in a way that pleases her.  Don’t forget to reach around to stimulate her clitoris to send her into O-land!  Remember to drink plenty of water, and top it off with ice cream or some fruit salad. Love tip 5: Cool and Hot Shower Time: 
Instead of taking a hot shower tonight, make the water lukewarm or on the cooler side.  Bring some waterproof toys such as I rub my duckie or a waterproof vibrator.  You can also use a movable shower head that has different speeds for some soapy fun!  Spend time lathering each other up.  Take your time and use a nice scented soap, such as mango, raspberry or lemon. By the way, vibrators can be for him and her!  Massage each others back and front areas, focusing first away from the genitals and then later to the genitals. To stimulate her, use circular motions with the vibrator around the labia and clitoris where most of the nerve endings are.  Later, insert one or two fingers gently into her vaginal canal.  She may be able to reach one, two, three or more orgasms this way in a row.  To get him going, stimulate his penis with one hand and using the vibrator underneath his testicles.  Ask for feedback to see how it feels.  Some people like vibrators and some don’t.  Experiment with different speeds.  When you are done, rinse off and dry each other off and then fall asleep together.  Turn on the ceiling fans for some extra breeze. Hopefully, these love tips will keep things cool and hot for you and your love this summer, help you improve your sex life and your relationship. 

Is Green Web Hosting The Future of The Web? Count On It

Is Green Web Hosting The Future of The Web? Count On It. Internet Future: Green Web Hosting

The world wide web runs on electricity, though we don’t usually think about it. But the fact is, without electricity you wouldn’t be reading this. You’d hunker down in front of the fireplace and read the newspaper by the dim light of a lamp fueled by whale oil. Sound like fun?

It wasn’t. It was actually pretty boring compared to today’s instant information available only on the W3. If it happens any where – from Teheran to Terre Haute, it spreads virally across the digital landscape in seconds. That news bit also gobbles up electricity like nobody’s business.

So, is green hosting the wave of the future web? Yes. And if you aren’t riding the crest of that wave, you’ll be left behind in the digital dust. An energy munching web site is sooo “last millennium.”

The Ever Expanding World Wide Web

Some facts about green hosting:

There are more than 125 million web sites on line today.
Each day, 6,000 new web sites launch, carrying with them the dreams and visions of web-preneurs looking to become the next Amazon.
Each web site sits on a server that requires electricity to run it and cool it. That requires a lot of electricity.
The electricity bill for a successful web host would make a grown man cry. It’s HUGE. Many web hosts pay thousands of dollars monthly to keep their servers juiced.
The consumption of electricity used by web hosts doubled in just five years.
With the advent of Web 2.0 features like videos, VoIP, streaming TV and other “must-haves,” the web will only expand the demand for more and more electricity.
Experts suggest that energy consumption by web hosts will continue to double every five years and studies show these web pros are actually being conservative. Some “green” bloggers suggest the amount of electricity consumed by web hosts will double every 30 months.
Energy consumption to power the W3 grows exponentially, doubling then quadrupling and so on. The demand for power from web hosts will increase at a phenomenal rate.
As the world wide web grows in both size and features, web site owners will require increasing amounts of bandwidth to avoid long download times.
What Are Web Hosts and Why Do They Gobble Up Energy?

Conduct a Google search of web hosts and see what pops up.

You’ll get 149,000,000 search results for web hosts. Now, not all of these SERP links are for actual web hosts. Some are for reviewing sites (that use web hosts), blogs about web hosts (that use a web host to get their blogs out to the masses) and even SERPs links to sellers, resellers and re-re-sellers of hosting services.

Hosting is a commodity on the web. You or I can buy space from a web host and open up our own hosting company. The mother host provides all the tools and support you need to build your own hosting company in the basement office. (The one that floods occasionally. Ooops.)

A web host can be a kid down the street or it can be a huge, physical plant with chipheads tending to racks of servers, customer support taking calls from subscribers and office people tending to routine business matters – like paying the electric company.

What’s a server? Well, in simplest terms, a server is not much more than a humongous hard drive in a box. Your web site (or future web site) resides on one of these server hard drives, along with hundreds of other web sites. Today, server disk space is measured in terabytes.

What’s a terabyte? A measurement of bits and bytes on steroids. A terabyte is the equivalent of 1,000 gigabytes. More dramatically, a terabyte equals 1,000,000,000,000 bytes or 10 to the 12th power of bytes.

That brand new computer you just bought MIGHT have a 500 gigabyte hard drive. A server has dozens of terabytes of storage. It also has tons of RAM (128 gigabytes of RAM isn’t unusual) so that the server can deliver the bandwidth required for fast downloads of all the sites stored on that server.

In other words, web hosting companies consume a lot of electricity with rack upon rack of servers all sucking up electricity from the grid.

Facebook, alone, employs 30,000 servers as of October, 2009 and that number grows daily as more and more of us connect through this social media site. Amazon employs thousands of servers. Microsoft, Verizon and all of your other favorite sites employ thousands of servers strung together in arrays,

In other words, there are millions of servers storing terabytes of information available to you on the W3. Yep, even your little blog gobbles up electricity.

Green Hosting

So, even though we may not think about energy consumption when we stake a claim to some digital real estate, build and launch web site, we are adding to the demand for more and more electricity.

Now, along comes green hosting – hosting companies that employ “green” technology to lower the demand for electricity generated by coal- and gas-fired electricity generation plants. These businesses recognize that green hosting is inevitable as energy costs rise and we continue to pump tons of air-borne pollutants into the atmosphere every day.

Things ain’t going to get better, folks, unless our corporate culture does an about face and stops drawing down available energy. Major cities, like Los Angeles and Phoenix, already experience rolling blackouts as parts of the energy grid are shut down for a while. New York City broadcasts “please turn off your air conditioners” on the hottest summer days and brown-outs are almost routine.

Green hosting is leading the way in how U.S. businesses conduct on-line business by employing green sources of energy to power their servers.

A green host doesn’t add to the demand for more electricity from traditional sources. Instead, these far-sighted companies employ new technology – solar power, wind power, deep core earth energy, hydro-electric (where available) and bio-fuels that can be regenerated with another harvest of corn.

But there’s a lot more to web hosting than just storing web sites on gigantic hard drives. It’s not just about ROM. It’s also about RAM, which translates into the speed at which your web site interacts with site visitors. It better be fast. Studies reveal that 90% of us will sit through a 10-second download while only 10% will sit through a 30-second download. We’ve become that impatient.

From a site owner’s perspective, that stat translates into a loss of 80% of your prospects in that 20-second download window. So you want more RAM, more bandwidth and unfettered access to the server’s CPU and other shared assets – server parts you share with other sites.

Hosts employ the latest in fiber optic technology, they boost RAM and deliver quick downloads even quicker. Green web hosts do this without further straining the energy system that we rely on to log on, watch TV and cook dinner by using non-traditional resources to power up your web site whenever a site visitor stops by.

Cool It

In addition to delivering more bandwidth to you and your site visitors, and easier access to the server’s CPU, servers need to be cooled.

Even your PC pumps out a lot of heat and heat is the enemy of all those circuit boards, CPUs and other electronics inside the box. Now multiply that by thousands – tens of thousands of servers all humming along pumping out heat. To keep these servers happy, they need to be cooled.

Traditional hosts add to the demand for more energy by cooling servers with cold air. The server room in a hosting company is kept cool – so cool you could probably store sides of beef in there if the racks of servers didn’t take up so much space. That cooling requires energy and plenty of it.

Green hosts, once again, employ state-of-the-art tech to cool those thousands of servers. They use cold water, flushed through a water-tight system, to cool the server room, lessening the demand for more and more cold air from the local coal-burning energy plant.

Make a Statement: We’re Green

Getting a little recognition on the W3 is hard, even in a niche market (especially in a niche market). You have less than 10 seconds to convince a site visitor to stick around long enough to learn about the quality of your services, your products or your message. Web surfers are jagged out on information overload. If they don’t see what they want to see on your home page or a landing page, they bounce.

So, making a statement about your corporate culture and your business’ core values has to happen in the blink of an eye. Visitors will never even see the “About Us” page if you don’t create a good impression – in 10 seconds!

An emblem or banner proclaiming that you employ green hosting makes an immediate statement about your on-line business. It says you care about the environment. It says you care about the future of the planet and our children and grandchildren who will populate Earth 25, 50 or 100 years from now.

That “green” badge of honor also bestows a cache of cutting edge tech-iness. You get it. Your on-line business uses green hosting because you recognize the importance of this fledging movement.

There aren’t a lot of green hosts even today. However, more hosts will soon recognize that green is the only way to go. And those few green hosts out there now?

They’re making a statement about their business culture – a statement that passes on to your business when you display a green host emblem or banner.

Who said it isn’t easy being green? Today, green hosting makes a statement about you and your business – a positive statement.

And with less than 10 seconds to make a good first impression, that “green” host emblem goes a long, long way in making the right statement quickly.

Adult Tinkerbell Costumes Are a Great Idea For Parties

Adult Tinkerbell costumes are definitely a good choice for teenage girls or even adult women. Apart from the fact that she’s a fairy (and all girls relate fairies to Tinkerbell simply because she’s the most popular ones), she also looks good in her lovely short green skirt. If you want to know why Tinkerbell costumes are a great idea, then this article will focus on answering that simple question.Why She’s PopularTinkerbell is certainly a popular character amongst girls of all ages. Why, you ask? Because: she represents the typically strong-willed, extremely temperamental and yet lovable female character; that’s why. At times she could be mean-tempered and at other times she could be compassionate and generous. It’s no wonder why women love to dress up in tinkerbell costumes for adults (or as fairies that look like her, at least) because they can relate to her. Women are more in touch with their emotions and no other fairytale character has her kind of spirit and unpredictable temperament. She’s enigmatic, to say the least, and that’s why she’s popular among girls.Adult Tinkerbell Costumes For Cosplay PartiesIn almost any theme of cosplay party, Tinkerbell costumes are a good choice to make since it can blend into the theme quite easily. As long as the cosplay theme is based on fantasies or cartoon characters, an adult Tinkerbell costume can definitely fit in.

However, if you just ditch the wand, get rid of the wings, and dye your hair to any color you prefer, you could still pass for a lovely female video game protagonist (or antagonist). There are many game characters that look like Tinkerbell. An example is Rydia from the hit SNES/Playstation game, Final Fantasy 4. As long as you put on a green cloak, stockings, and arm-warmers (fingerless gloves), you would definitely look like her while still wearing Tinkerbell’s basic short dress.Adult Tinkerbell Costumes For Halloween PartiesTinkerbell costumes for adults are still good for Halloween parties since there are actually no rules when going to one. Think of those people who wear Star Wars costumes during Halloween night. They’re as valid costumes as your Tinkerbell costume is. However, if it so happens that you’re going to a costume party with strict rules on the theme, then just wear fake vampire fangs and put red lipstick down your chin while wearing a Tinkerbell costume. Tell people that you’re a vampire elf/fairy or something. At least that way you’ll be branded as original.Adult Tinkerbell Costume For Christmas PartiesIf you’re going to a Christmas party, you can still be in the mood since you can just wear a Tinkerbell costume (without the wings and the wand) and tell people that you’re an elf. You could also wear a green Santa Hat while wearing Tinkerbell’s basic short dress and say you’re Santa’s wife with a green Santa skirt.Basic Tinkerbell costumes for adults are still good for Halloween parties since there are actually no rules and a Tinkerbell costume is definitely flexible when it comes to various costumed party themes. There are a lot more concepts out there that let you wear your Tinkerbell dress but these happen to be the most common ideas, as long as you know how to be creative with it.
