How to Approach the Subject of Experimenting in the Bedroom

How to Approach the Subject of Experimenting in the Bedroom

Are you bored with your sex life? If you are, you may want to spice things up a bit in the bedroom. A great way to do so is to try new thing. Experimenting in the bedroom often brings new life to a relationship. It can also allow couples to reach new levels of pleasure.

When it comes to experimenting, many individuals and their minds automatically wander. It is important to remember that bedroom experimenting comes in a number of different formats. It doesn’t have to involve something that would be embarrassing if it leaked out and it doesn’t have to involve bringing in a third person. Experimenting in the bedroom can honestly mean something as simple as trying a new position.

Although many individuals, like you, want to experiment in the bedroom, many are afraid to approach their partner about doing so. Why? Because there is a certain level of fear associated with doing so. What if your partner thinks that they don’t please or satisfy you enough in the bedroom? What if your partner thinks that the sex is just fine the way it is? What if your sex partner thinks that you have a sick mind? These are all concerns that you may have, but you shouldn’t let that stop you.

If you do decide to approach the subject of experimenting in the bedroom with your partner, you will want to be gentle with your approach. Your partner may automatically believe that he or she isn’t pleasing enough for you. Although this may not be what you mean, it is still a likely and natural assumption. If your partner asks you, be sure to calm their fears. Let them know that you think that experimenting in the bedroom could not only increase your pleasure and satisfaction, but theirs as well. This approach tends to work nicely.

As it was previously stated, when many individuals hear the phrase “experimenting in the bedroom,” their minds often wanders to embarrassing and sometimes humiliating experiences. If you are just looking to try a new sex position, introduce pleasure enchasing sex toys, or romantic movies, be sure to let your partner know immediately. Do not give him or her the opportunity to even think that you mean something different. Doing so can change the way that your partner looks at you, both inside and outside of the bedroom.

In addition to letting your partner know what changes you would like to make in the bedroom, give them the opportunity to express their wants, needs, and desires. This is a simple, yet important step to take. First, it is important to remember that intimacy should involve two people receiving maximum pleasure, not just one. Next, it will help bring reassurance to your partner that you are not just looking to increase your pleasure. Asking what your partner’s wants and needs are in the bedroom will go to show that you want to improve the overall experience, not just yours.

Despite the fact that experimenting in the bedroom may sometimes be a difficult subject to approach, it is one that you will want to talk about. A healthy sex life is an important component of any relationship and marriage. By approaching the subject carefully, you and your partner can soon be having wild, yet pleasurable sex in no time at all.

5 Things to do to Avoid Being Exploited by Your Mechanic

5 things to do to avoid being exploited by your mechanic

​If you’re a car owner in Lagos, you must have been a victim (or still a victim) of mechanics’ deceitful and tricky ways of taking advantage of your situation, either by hiking the price of spare parts ridiculously or by recommending wrong solutions in a bid to extort money from you. Below are five things to do to escape being exploited by your mechanic. These tips are useful to new and old car owners. Enjoy!

1. Check prices with friends & family
There are always people who have used your type of car before; they might be friends, family, or colleagues. So check with them when your mechanic gives you a spare part price. They are more knowledgeable and can tell you the real price. Once you confirm, be bold to tell your mechanic the price you got. Chances are he will adjust the price given initially to the new price you got.

2. Monitor your repairs and keep record of new spare parts
If you have the time, FindADriver247 advises that you stay with your mechanic when he’s fixing your car. This helps you to know what exactly he’s changing and what he’s just servicing. If you leave your mechanic to work on your car in your absence all the time, chances are he won’t fix half of the things you paid him to fix; he might even pocket the money for the new spare parts and just service the old one. After all, you won’t know especially if the part is in a hidden area.

It’s also advisable to keep record of your last repairs and the new spare parts purchased. This helps you to know the durability. The more durable, the more likely your mechanic bought an original spare part. Hence, he can earn your trust. Otherwise, you need no further proof that your mechanic is exploiting you.

3. Check online for suggestions
There is nothing new under the sun. So whatever problem your car is giving you, rest assured that millions of people around the world have experienced it before. Go online, google some of the most common issues associated with your brand of car, the suggested solutions are just too many. When your mechanic starts to exaggerate and over exaggerate the issue, just tell him the issue and the likely solutions. In fact, tell him in addition how much the workmanship may normally cost. He will be shocked to hear this. You will leave him with no choice than to follow your advice.

4. Build a rapport with spare part sellers
Most mechanics, if not all, buy car parts from sellers in Ladipo or Oyigbo market. These are some of the two biggest spare part markets in Lagos. To avoid being exploited by your mechanic, endeavor to know one or two sellers in these markets so you can verify prices given to you by your mechanic. Once you counter your mechanic with the real price, he will know you can’t be exploited because you have a way of verifying. If possible, contact the sellers directly to supply you these parts.

5. Hire a trustworthy and reliable driver
Sometimes, mechanics collaborate with drivers to exploit car owners, and then share the loot. If you always send your driver to take your car for repairs at your mechanic’s, chances are they are both collaborating to exploit you. The only way out of this is to hire reliable & trustworthy drivers especially from a company providing such services and taking responsibility for the drivers’ behaviour, such as

Event Planning Tips For Beginners

Event planning tips for beginners

Have you ever been in charge of ordering food for a whole lot of people? Or perhaps you have been tasked with the responsibility of making sure that everyone is comfortable or there are enough chairs and seating arrangements for everyone at the event you are attending. Whatever the situation, chances are that we have had some sort of event planning experience in our lives whether we actually realized it or not. On the other hand, if you have had no experience in event planning yet have to take on a group of 100 people and attendees then it can be a very difficult task to know what to do first and how to arrange everything that needs to be done! Here is some important information to consider, though, about the whole ordeal:

Use Professional Contacts

The first thing that you'll want to do when event planning is to make sure that there are enough activities going on for everyone. This may involve being able to get entertainers to perform, making sure that there is enough food for everyone to eat, as well as making sure that everyone has enough elbow room in the whole building or space that the event will be held at. The best thing to do in a situation like this would be to just start someplace and make the event grow. In other words, one method that many people use is to simply look up names of professional contacts in the phonebook and start calling. Once you start calling those people who are usually entertainers or speakers at large events, or contacting businesses to see if they would be able to provide enough food for everyone then your event planning skills are all the more better and the whole event will start to take shape!

Don't Leave Out the Basics

Of course you also don't want to be caught up in the details of the event planning for the day that you don't even think about the basics. One issue that is often forgotten about is how many cars will be coming to the event and whether or not there will be enough parking room. Furthermore, are the directions to the event clear-cut or do some clarifications need to be made by sending out small, printable maps to the guests and attendees coming to the event?

Get Others Involved

On the day of the event you naturally don't want to be running around like a fool trying to get everything to be done, so getting the proper help is necessary to keeping your event planning cool! If you even have to outsource some of the jobs on the day of the event then it would be perfectly okay to do so, but there may also be volunteers that are ready and standing-by to help. Asking around never hurts and you just never know how much help you'll be able to receive!

All of these ideas are crucial in order to make event planning easier on yourself and anyone who gets involved! There are so many things to think about, but making sure that you stay calm in the process is perhaps even more important!

Let you imagination take you off to an island somewhere, be creative and listen to the trees move or imagine you see butterflies. Allow your guided imagination to take you on a road trip where peace rests at the end of the journey.

5 Ways Nigerians Can Save Money on Car Repairs

5 ways Nigerians can save money on car repairs

Owning a car is one of the most expensive aspects of many Nigerians’ yearly spending. A car is the 2nd largest purchase that most consumers in Nigeria make, after a home. But, it’s a fact that costs never stop when you own a vehicle. Aside from insurance and fuel costs which are certainly a big part of the total cost of owning a car each year, car repairs can be extremely costly for car owners. No matter where you live, you can expect to pay some money on necessary car repairs. Preventative maintenance is very important, but it can still be pricey.

Generally, car repairs can be particularly detrimental to a budget when they are unexpected; it can help to budget ahead of time and plan for common repairs. Below, we have listed some smart moves to save serious money on car repairs.

If your car is still under warranty, take it back to the dealer for free repairs

Most new vehicles and even some Tokunbo cars sold in Nigeria come with 1-3 years warranty that covers most almost everything. Ensure you know the specifics of your warranty and take advantage of it as most time, they cover free repairs at your dealership.

Fix it yourself if you can

Car repairs may seem complicated but many of the maintenance and auto repair jobs are still simple enough that you can do them yourself. Almost anyone should be able to change their own wiper blades, replace their air filter, change their oil, replace a headlight, change a battery, or even replace belts as long as they have the required tools. Even more, YouTube is a great resource for finding videos that explain how to repair many car issues. In a case where the problem is beyond your capabilities, though, take it to a shop as fixing it blindingly can cause more damage and eventually incur more costs.

Have a mechanic you trust

A major reason why many Nigerians spend a lot of money on repairs is because they patronize a mechanic who is either fraudulent or does not know the intricacies of the job. Ensure you do not patronize random mechanics at different times, entrust your vehicle to a mechanic or repair shop you can trust and try to go to the particular garage or mechanic each time you need something fixed that you can’t fix yourself. Becoming a regular customer endears you to them and they would even do some free jobs for you at times. If you don’t know of a good mechanic, try asking friends or family for a recommendation.

Skip maintenance that you don’t actually need

When you buy a car, the vendor (especially if he has given you warranty) will inform you that there are basic car maintenance procedures you have to complete at intervals, but the truth is, while regular preventative maintenance on your car will actually save you money, not all maintenance needs to be done as often as the service centers suggest. For instance, spark plugs also don’t need to be changed very often and the car oil doesn’t need to be changed every 3,000 miles.

Use local shops instead of brand chains

Most people believe that going to the car brand’s repair would ensure they get their car properly repaired. But while these places might be ok, they can be quite expensive when it comes to the small mechanical jobs and services. Also, they tend to not provide the level of service that many local shops will provide. Local shops tend to provide a better service, get the job done right in shorter time, and are economical on price.

Therapy Procedures for Speech Disorders

Therapy procedures for speech disorders

When a person is unable to produce speech sounds correctly or fluently, or has problems with his or her voice, then he or she has a speech disorder. Difficulties pronouncing sounds, or articulation disorders, and stuttering are examples of speech disorders.

The terminal goal of speech therapy is for the client to spontaneously use the appropriate speech sounds of his or her linguistic culture in connected speech. In this context, therapy becomes a continuum of short-term goals designed to meet the terminal goal. And therapy procedures may either use the motor or traditional approach or the cognitive-linguistic approach.

Motor or Traditional Approach

This approach is structure-based and uses drills more. Drills are activities that have rapid rates of stimulus presentation and which puts much stress on accuracy of the patient’s response to the stimulus and the said response reaching various set criteria.

Under this approach is auditory training. Its proponent is Charles Van Riper. This procedure uses pictures and games as motivational events or events that serve as a way of presenting stimuli. Activities are mainly about speech sound discrimination. It highlights the awareness and detection of sound.

Another procedure is the exercise of the oral motor structures. It is used when an oral motor assessment shows muscle weakness or spasticity. For children, it should be made fun and functional. It also uses mirrors for visual feedback.

One other procedure under this approach is phonetic placement. Van Riper was also the proponent of this procedure. It provides clients with verbal descriptions or instructions regarding articulatory position and movements for target sound. It is usually used together with visual, auditory, tactile and kinesthetic cues.

Weiner’s contribution to this field is his modified sensory motor approach. It is where a word in which the target sound is correct in the final position is paired with a word in which the same sound is in error in the initial position. The words are produced without a pause to facilitate assimilation of the incorrectly produced sound.

In this line also is syllabication. It uses the syllable-by-syllable production of words. It is used in addressing weak syllable deletion or the deletion of the syllable in a word which is the least stressed.

One procedure that is closely related to syllabication is chaining. The client is first asked to say the whole word. If he says a syllable incorrectly, the therapist instructs the patient to look at his lips while he produces the word syllable by syllable with the patient following him after every syllable until he produces the word the same way that the therapist did.

Cognitive-Linguistic Approach

The first procedure under this approach is auditory bombardment, also known as cycles approach. There are treatment cycles which have their designated phonemes, taught in a span of 2-4 weeks. Auditory bombardment requires that the patient be bombarded with the phonemes that he needs to learn without him being aware of it.

Another procedure is auditory bombarding with PACT (Parents and Children Together). Here, production should not be over-emphasized. It may use funny, perceptually salient make-up words like ker-plunk, boing, shilly-shally or kaboom. All that matters is that the words contain the phonemes that are being targeted.

Modified cycles approach is also under this group. It requires the clinician to make purposeful and obvious lexical errors in words that contain target phonemes to make the patient correct the clinician, thus producing the target sound. Parental involvement is important for explanations of goals, procedures, and assignments.

Minimal contrast therapy, on the other hand, contrasts presence and absence of phonemes, establishing also the difference between phonemes. This procedure can be utilized in addressing perceptual or production difficulties when it comes to final sounds of words, establishing the difference between words like fee and feet.

5 Reasons You Should Cook at Home Instead of Eating Out in Lagos

5 Reasons You Should Cook At Home Instead of Eating Out

Variety of Dishes lavishly and tastefully displayed to invite and tempt Lagosians who want to feed their stomach. At Mama puts or Bukkas dotted around the city, you find bankers, civil servants and artisans jostling to buy food at these spots. Madam give me Amala with efo riro, shaki, roundabout and pomo, they shout at the top of their voices.

Of course, you are very busy and you have to leave home at 4am and return at 10pm and this will not give you time to cook. Perhaps, these reasons will encourage you to cook instead of eating out every day.

You can trust what you eating

For those who eat out often, they are not in the know of the kind of ingredients that have been used in preparing the food. It what they are served that they eat. But if you cook at home, you have the discretion to add the content you without any worries.

You hone your cooking skills

Men have the tendency to eat out more than women even though you find both genders at the mama put. Regardless, if you want to improve or hone your cooking skills, it is not by visiting restaurants. You can find time out of your tight to cook. For the men who cook at home, they can brag to friends about their cooking skills and they can show off their cooking skills to their significant other. It is definitely a wonderful feeling.

You save money

You have to spend nothing less than ₦500 to eat at your favourite restaurants daily. But if you cook, you won’t spend such an amount. Every penny is worth saving in this current recession.

Food joint in Lagos

You make healthier choices

Many of the foods you consume at restaurants are processed foods due to the ingredients they are used. Cooking at home not only help you select your own ingredients but ensure that you make choices that will not negatively affect your health.

It builds better relationships

Imagine one of those days your girlfriend who is always coming around to cook for and you told are not to bother about cooking. You will do it.

So, don’t be afraid to show off your culinary skills to your significant other.

5 Christmas Shopping Tips For Everyone in Nigeria

Christmas Shopping Tips For Everyone

The Christmas bells are starting to ring and there is already merriment in the air as Nigerians are always eager to welcome the yuletide season, recession or not. As much as we love the Christmas parties, rice, chicken, and bottomless glasses of red wine, though, Christmas can be stressful financially as when you add it all up, it actually turns out to be a super expensive time of year.

With that said, it doesn't always have to be. There are ways to avoid spending your Naira on the less important parts of the festive season. We share 5 tips for saving money and staying sane while navigating holiday shopping madness.

Plan for affordability, not desirability

Yes, you want the best for yourself this Christmas, however, you need to put your account balance in mind. Before you start planning, ask yourself: How much can I afford to spend this holiday season? Make a list, keep a budget in mind and set realistic spending limits. It is actually easier to mark out the specifics when you have a rough idea of the total amount you want to spend.

Grab bargains

It is Christmas, almost every store or shop will have end-of-year sales where the costs of several items are discounted. Take advantage of this and pick the items you need for a lesser price than you normally would have purchased them for. Also, you can decide to plan ahead for next year’s Christmas and buy Christmas end-of-sales items for even less by January. Gift wraps, Christmas cards, decorations and plastic tree have heavy discounts hit in January.

Refrain from impulse buying

Christmas shopping on impulse is dangerous. It is very easy to get carried away or swept up in the holiday spirit when everything in the shopping centre has Christmas cheer written all over them and there are also so many discounted items. Do not fall into that trap. Try to remember that the fact that some of these items are super cheap does not mean they are essential to you. No matter what you do, do not stray from the items you have marked out on your list.

Look to buy online

Nigerians have fully embraced e-commerce now and so, a majority of sales will be done online this season. Save yourself the cost and stress of actually walking into the store and hauling a cart and do all your shopping online. There is absolutely no denying you could probably find whatever you are shopping for, cheaper online. Try Jumia online store for clothes ,perfume, even food e.t.c – it is the same products, only cheaper.

Start shopping now

Don’t wait until the first week of December to start buying holiday gifts, start now! It might seem early, but by buying a few things everyday or weekend between now and actual week of Christmas, you will be able to keep on top of your finances and keep tabs on what you are buying, without it coming as a huge shock to you all at once.

4 Reasons Civil Servants In Nigeria Need To Travel More

4 Reasons Civil Servants in Nigeria Need To Travel More

There is an actual need for civil servants in Nigeria, who make the majority of the country’s labour force, to travel once in awhile for vacation. Whether it is within their local government, interstate, or out of the country (going abroad) traveling offers to them essential benefits that cannot be denied. From unwinding, sightseeing to adventure, a trip or vacation does not just spice the boring office life that most of them have; it takes away the daily hustle-bustle and constant pressures that come with life in Nigeria. Even more, civil servants who tend to travel often, tend to succeed more at work and business than those who do not.

Certainly, traveling creates ripple effects which go on, deep and permanent, affecting the traveler’s ideas of life and work. Curious to know how this happens? Here are four ways traveling can give Nigerian civil servants the much-needed boost at work or in their career.

Fuels creativity

Travelling has a way of opening the mind of the traveler and thus enhancing creativity. Most Nigerians who work in offices or other corporate environments agree to the fact that they find it easier to focus on their works after a vacation and they find themselves becoming much more creative. This is because their mind is refreshed and much more open; they have a clearer perspective about almost everything and somehow they become less pessimistic and more optimistic in their assumptions and conclusions. Again, while traveling, these civil servants are most times faced with certain impromptu challenges, which force them to get creative and rethink their plans, thus building creative skills which come in handy at work. Creativity is all about finding new, different ways to get things done.

Fosters social skills

Socializing and networking are no doubt key attributes to surviving in any work environment. When civil servants travel, they most times find themselves lodged in new environments with cultures, languages, society, and lifestyle that are very unlike their own and they have to find a way to acquire the knowledge they need about these different cultures, languages, etc. In the process, they find they are actually socializing based on their sole effort, no translation book or app needed. Basically, traveling tests anyone’s social skills: ability to communicate freely, patience, tactfulness, and etiquette. If one can pass this test while traveling, it becomes so much easier to scale through similar tests in their career or at work with ease.

Advances the travelers’ link with technology

While the main idea of going on vacation is to break free from work as well as certain technologies, ironically, travel finds a way of forcing workers to rely on technology while break free of it at the same time. Most travelers in Nigeria go either by road or air and usually they have to book their tickets online. Again, during their travel they have to rely on certain apps and sites to keep up with events going on at home, keep in touch with relevant contacts and possibly find out more about the place they are visiting. All these help make them much more tech savvy and this eventually helps with work at the office.

Improves their organization skills

This mostly applies to people whose jobs are in HR, accounting, or solving logistic problems. Whether they are traveling solo, with family, friends, or even for business, there are certain steps they need to take and certain things they need to put in place. Before setting out on a trip, it’s important that one’s passports and IDs are all updated. Also, one would need to sort out where to stay, what to do, where to eat, how best to look after companion(s), etc. In the process of sorting out all these, they find that they also improve the way they organize things, and this also affects them at work positively. They find it becomes easier to follow procedures, create and tick off checklists, etc.

5 Nighttime Routines to Avoid Weight Gain

5 Nighttime Routines To Avoid Weight Gain

There are lifestyle habits or routines that you engage in that may affect your health. Unknown to you, some of these habits are usually due to your evening or night time activities. These activities if you don’t nip it in the bud can make you add weight. So, if you don’t want to gain weight, here are some nighttime habits you need to embrace.

Brush your teeth after dinner

If you have a knack for eating your dinner late in the night, you should always brush your teeth as it will prevent post-dinner snacking. Most times, when you brush your teeth, you are likely not to munch or eat anything after that.

Don't eat in front of the television

If you consistently eat dinner in front of the TV, you concentrate on the TV rather than your food. This can lead to weight gain. So, not being mindful of the meal you're eating can lead to eating more; and paying attention to a meal can lead to eating less.

Get enough sleep

Sleep deprivation has more consequences. It can lead to serious health issues such as high blood pressure and heart disease. You can add weight gain to it. We encourage you to try to sleep more at night.

Don't make dinner your largest meal of the day

Many Nigerians do this because they want to combine the breakfast and lunch they missed in a dinner. This is not very good for your body. This is because these night meals can build calories in your body which may be difficult to burn. So, if you are lodging in one of a hotel, don’t be tempted to order large meals.

Don't use drug in the night

Certain medications taken before bedtime can lead to weight gain. This includes some antipsychotics, antidepressants, and stimulants, which can lead to increased appetite. You should avoid these pills if you use at night. So, don't take any medications without doctor’s advice.

Want to learn more about how to lose weight? Check out The 3 Week Diet plan, which teaches you how to build proper habits over the course of three weeks that result in great weight loss and set you up for a future of weight loss and maintenance.

5 Ways to Get Rid of Guests Who Overstay Their Welcome

5 Ways to Get Rid of Guests Who Overstay Their Welcome

It's normal in Nigeria for you to organise a party and some of your guests sleep over. There is nothing wrong with that. If you don't want to lodge them in a hotel, they have to sleep in your home. But what if your guest takes advantage of your magnanimity and extends their stay? This can be very discomforting because you would be in a dilemma on how to get rid of your guest who has overstayed their welcome. In addition, you don't want to annoy them and still stay friends even after getting rid of them. So, if you don't know what to do, here are smart ways to get rid of guests who have overstayed their welcome.

Make time part of the invitation

They say prevention is better than cure. This mantra can also apply here. If you don't want a guest to overstay, you should state it clearly the time the party is going to start and end. This will prevent any friend from thinking of staying. But this may not apply to family relatives. But it's not a bad idea to include it in the invitation card.

Give them chores

Like Chinua Achebe said in his book that if a guest has stayed more than 3 days in your home, give him a hoe to farm. This is because he's no long a guest. So, if you want to get rid of that guest, you can subtly give them chores. They won't be happy with this and before you know they are on their way to their home.

Fake having to travel

This is quite drastic but it will definitely work. But you have to do this in agreement with your spouse. You can inform the guest a night before that you are traveling and you can't leave them. They have no choice than to leave.

Make the home boring

There is a level of boredom that will be unbearable for any unwelcomed guests. You may decide not to switch on the generator in the night and not subscribe to your pay TV when it's subscription expires. In fact, you can even refuse to play music or watch music. This should send a signal to the guest that he has to leave.

Tell them directly

This is probably the best option for you but the most difficult. You have to just summon the courage and tell them that it's time for them to leave.
