    Vibrators come in all shapes and sizes. An orgasm-enhancing tool created specifically to increase female pleasure ,there's definitely a vibrator out there with your name on it. Funnily enough, women frequently gift other women with vibrators as presents. Why?

How to find the vibrator of your dreams? That can take some

  • Tips to Keep Your Bones as Strong as Possible

    Stretching

    One of the ways in which menopause changes your body is that your bone density decreases to some extent. Almost all postmenopausal women have a condition called osteopenia that can be detected with a simple X-ray test called a Dexa-Scan. The good news, though, is that osteopenia only slightly increases your risk of fractures. And the even better news is that osteoporosis, the more advanced form of bone loss that makes you prone to broken bones and a "Dowager's hump," is not inevitable as you age. Even if osteoporosis runs in your family, there is plenty you can do to make sure your bones stay as strong as possible.

  • Boardwalk Empire: A Shocking Finale

    Boardwalk Empire

    Well, it is au revoir to "Boardwalk Empire," not, as I once feared , adieu. The novelistic series set in Atlantic City during Prohibition will be back for another season. So Sunday night's finale was an end to what has happened the past weeks and a teaser for what lies ahead.

    I confess I have become a "Boardwalk Empire" fan, though I usually watch the show on a HBO rerun and not on Sunday nights when it was first shown. That's because I am also a fan of "The Good Wife," though this season "TGW" seems less good than in the past. Maybe it's because the tension of whether Will and Alicia will ever do it is gone. They have, in case you don't watch, been doing it, though Alicia finally, and a bit belatedly, got a case of the guilts last week. And this season the show seems a lot more about Cary, a smart assistant D.A., and Kalinda, a bisexual investigator, who are not uninteresting but

  • How to Get Rid of a Grudge

    Mature Woman

    Grudges have a way of digging in and sticking like Velcro. It might feel good at first, but that soon sours. Grudges can not only make us feel emotionallybitter and resentful, but can also affect our physical health. Studies show this kind of seething anger increases heart rate, elevates blood pressure, and can make us flat-out depressed. The good news? There are ways to release a grudge. The first step is to simply see you're holding onto a grudge and then acknowledging it. From there, take the following steps:

    Don't forgive until you are really ready. You don't want to be sweeping your feelings under a rug of hidden resentment.

    Ask for an apology. Although it's not a good idea to focus on righting the wrong by getting an apology, it's certainly okay to ask for one.

    Talk to someone. If you believe someone has done you wrong, discuss it with a trusted friend and get her

  • Don't Make These First-Date Mistakes

    Couple

    Sometimes when you finally meet someone on a first date, the level of anticipation can be so overwhelming that you trip yourself up. It's easy to see how this can happen, because first dates - at any age - are traumatic. You're spending hours with a person you either don't know very well, know at all, have known forever but not romantically, even someone you never laid eyes on except in a photograph until this very moment. And then there's you to consider. What should you wear? How's your hair? And is he going to be boring?

    The biggest mistake most women make about a first date is to assume that it's going to "turn into anything." Unfortunately it takes so much out of us to even consider going on a date, most of us can't be bothered unless we anticipate the relationship has the potential to "go somewhere." Where exactly this going somewhere might be varies from woman to woman.

    "I'm the envy of every girl across the planet, I think," Pfeiffer said with a giggle during a press conference for her new romantic comedy "New Year's Eve." "Oh, yeah, I got a kiss in there with Zac Efron!"

    In the star-packed film, Pfeiffer plays a self-described "kind of invisible" dark-haired woman who ends up meeting her younger man on New Year's Eve, a story that unspools intertwined with others featuring Halle Berry, Hilary Swank, Robert De Niro, Lea Michele, Ashton Kutcher, Alyssa Milano, Common, Jessica Biel, Jon Bon Jovi, Katherine Heigl and a host of others. But it is the May-December relationship between the 24-year-old Efron and Pfeiffer that is at the

  • Lose the Winter Blues

    Mature Woman

    Popular culture has long acknowledged that sunlight is a mood booster while an overcast day is a downer. We talk about being "under a cloud" when we're blue, and we sing "You are my sunshine, my only sunshine, you make me happy when skies are gray." Yet not until 1984 was a condition called Seasonal Affective Disorder, or SAD, designated by the National Institute of Mental Health as a potentially serious malady that may even bring on suicidal thoughts. Women, especially older women, are more prone to this type of depression than men are, and it does run in families.

    According to the Mayo Clinic, there are two key reasons that reduced sunlight brings on SAD:

    Circadian rhythms are disrupted. Your body's internal biological clock that lets you know when you should sleep and when you should wake up is thrown out of kilter. The resulting sleep disturbances and feelings of
