Just Dreamin’ #MysexySaturday #MFRWauthor

rose colored dreamsRun for the Roses – A whirlwind weekend of high-end horse racing and sexy swing parties. Anyone can dream on Derby Day!

Sometimes “good ole’ fashioned sexy” isn’t about hot and heavy, it’s about keeping the dreams and adventures alive with that special someone.

EXCERPT

“What do you dream about at this point in our lives?” Jen asked. “It’s not like we haven’t fulfilled many of our dreams already. After all, I did entice you into discovering me.”

Laughing, Brett nodded in agreement. “That you did. Lucky me.”

“Lucky me.”

“So what do you dream about? What do you want us to dream about?”

“It’s funny.” Jen paused. “When I look at the broad picture—what you and I have, what we do, how we’re living our lives—there’s really nothing I’d add. I love our life. I’m not sure when I was in my twenties I ever even dreamed life could be this good—especially that it would be so full and satisfying in our mid fifties. I don’t know, maybe I thought we’d shrivel up or something. I know I didn’t think about having so much sex in our lives, or sharing it with other partners. I think I believed sex would stop by the time we were forty, if not sooner.”

“Thank God that expectation failed.”

“Yes, but it took both of us to move beyond the scripts we were given as kids. And we’ve done great—but I don’t want to stop dreaming.” She shuddered. “I think if we stop dreaming, it may be over. The inevitable will happen someday, but that day may be further off if we continue chasing dreams, old ones and new ones.”

“That’ll work for me, if it works for you.”

BLURB

Brett and Jen join their horse-trainer friends at the Kentucky Derby for a whirlwind weekend of races and sexy swing parties. Perhaps a Derby win is out of reach – but what are the dreams that matter for them? It doesn’t cost anything to keep on dreaming.

Brain Fear? What to eat! #MFRWAuthor

Brain Fear?

Yup, big time. With Alzheimer’s and dementia only one generation away up my family tree, I chase everything that comes across my newsfeeds about caring for my brain.

Here’s the latest, from AARP – six foods that support brain health, and my status:

Legumes, for B-complex vitamins, help protect against brain shrinkage – So-so .We definitely need to add in more, though the humus we enjoy daily at least contributes some

Citrus, for vitamin C antioxidents – Check! An orange a day.

Almonds, for vitamin E, healthy blood vessels – Check! This is my go-to snack. I nearly always have some handy – my only concern is eating too many!

Fish, for Omega 3s – Um, not often enough. Will work on this.

Spinach – flavenoids that slow amyloid plaque build-up — Ooops. I’ve been focusing on romaine for our salads, partly because it keeps so well. It turns up on many other lists of foods that help the brain, but doesn’t necessarily affect amyloid plaque. Will have to add spinach back in. Though in my defense I’ll add that when we eat out, a spinach salad is often my choice – especially the Panera Spinach Power salad.

coffeeCoffee, three cups daily have slowed cognitive decline compared to impaired adults not drinking significant coffee. – Check, and hooray! For decades health professionals have succeeded in making me feel somewhat guilty for my coffee addiction, so I’m excited to be justified. Plus, I know single cases neither prove or disprove aggregate research, but my father was a daily coffee drinker and my mother wasn’t, and her decline greatly exceeded his in onset and severity. I’ll drink to the difference!

My score? Excellent on three out of six, marginal on two, and pretty much zero on the spinach front. Got my marching orders – how about you?

 

Stay Sexy ~ Feed your Fantasies!

Lacy-lips-smallDo you ever fantasize about having sex with multiple partners? Two hot guys, maybe, or maybe a sexy guy and a hot woman? Or swapping with another couple and enjoying a foursome? If so, read on!

 

 

The-Ultimate-Guide-to-Sex-Over-Fifty-200x300I’m devouring Joan Price’s latest book, The Ultimate Guide to Sex Over Fifty, and hope to post a review in another week or two. Meantime I ran across the following marvelous quote from writer/activist Carol Queen in its pages:

“Sex with many people is actually the most functional form of sex education for many in our culture. In a society that doesn’t value or take seriously the responsibility to teach about pleasure, many of us still derive our most profound understandings about our own sexuality on the hoof, in the street, on the prowl.”

The first thing that struck me as I read those words was that it’s what so many swingers tell us about the impact of swinging on their sex lives with each other. You might think that people who turn to swinging are sexually savvy and experienced already, and many are, but even so, in addition to the thrill of multiple partners, many are surprised that they discover nuances about their own sexuality and each other’s they weren’t aware of. Even more, they learn new activities, toys, and positions they haven’t thought to try.

We’ve spoken with swingers ranging from their thirties to their eighties. Their reasons for getting involved with the lifestyle vary, but almost universally, they report reaping so much more benefit than they ever anticipated, and they’re grateful (especially as they age) for the extra boost to their libidos and their enjoyment.

We began writing our Swinging Games series for similar reasons. In it, we follow a mid-life empty-nest baby-boomer couple who reach the decision to check out the swing lifestyle because the wife thinks she might be bisexual, but doesn’t want to leave her husband out of her sexual exploration. Thirteen installments later, they are still going strong, and you can check out the series at this LINK to see if it can add to your fantasies.

Meanwhile Stay Sexy, and have fun!
