The easiest shortcut to better sex

The easiest shortcut to better sex

My guy and I have some really satisfying sex — the best sex I’ve had in my life, really. It wasn’t always like that, though. In fact, we’ve had to work at making sure our sex is great for both of us.

Of all the things we’ve tried, asking a single question has made the most difference:

How do you handle poly drama?

How do you handle poly drama?

In the time I’ve been living this modern poly-relationship life, I’ve been lucky to avoid outside drama. Then my boyfriend got a new boyfriend and, well, things have started to get bumpy. Luckily, I know exactly what to do: talk about it with patience, empathy and, if all else fails, kick his ass to the curb.

Are you planning your wedding or your marriage?

Are you planning your wedding or your marriage?

I remember designing and ordering the invitations. And then I remember never being happy in our relationship again. It wasn’t a magical switch; planning the wedding didn’t make us unhappy, but getting married didn’t make us happy, either.

So, for myself and the rest of those who want to get digestible info quick, here’s everything you really need to know about defensiveness.

How to own your shit, stop being so defensive and win people over

How to own your shit, stop being so defensive and win people over

Normally, we get a first-hand look at defensiveness when we’re fighting or when you’re given a critique. You can stop yourself in the moment, but it’ll be easier if you know it’s coming and how to deal with it.

4 reasons asking questions avoids pointless arguments and makes you more likable

4 reasons asking questions avoids pointless arguments and makes you more likable

People love to make declarative statements, like these: “White people suck,” “Men are rapists,” “Beck deserved the Album of the Year Grammy.” While saying these things makes it easy for you to share your thoughts, they’re kind of useless if you want to have a discussion that goes somewhere other than into a shouting match.

Asking questions instead of making statements is one major way to avoid arguments, spend less time dealing with stupid problems and make yourself much more likable. Here’s a few reasons why.

9 thoughtless, defensive statements you've definitely said in every argument and what to say instead

9 thoughtless, defensive statements you've definitely said in every argument and what to say instead

Fact is, most of the time when we talk, we don’t choose every single word that comes out of our mouths — that would take way to much damn work, and I got shit to do today. So we tend use a lot of code words, common sayings and other thoughtless words to get our points across.

When it comes to an argument, critique or other difficult conversation, thoughtless usually equals asshole-ish, rude and defensive. Here are a few of those code words, sayings and other thoughtless statements you need to remove from your dictionary.

The 8 types of defensiveness and how to identify which one you're fighting

The 8 types of defensiveness and how to identify which one you're fighting

At some point we all get a little defensive, but how we do it is different. Some people are in your face with it, others simply stay quiet and annoying – passive versus active. Either way, most of time, is a ninja with skill levels far over 9000. 

It’s a beast but kicking defensiveness’ ass isn’t so hard. Its key weakness is that it’s only really effective when you don’t know it’s there. Luckily, it’s also kind of stupid, illogical, repetitive and leaves footprints everywhere.
