Krishna Das Kirtan

Listening to spiritual music, chanting in particular, is like taking soul-vitamins. It’s absolutely NOT exclusively for hand-waving, body gyrating Hippies of all ages. It is (or can be) a heart opening experience for all who are open to it. I’ve just had the great pleasure and privilege of attending a workshop and kirtan (call and response chanting) with Krisha Das. The attached You Tube musical morsel is the tiniest sample of what it’s like to participate in a kirtan. Naturally, the website, ( hosts an online store with plenty to choose from as well as information about the artist and his craft. Jai Bhagwan = Namaste = I Honor The Light Within You.

Airheads Vs Fruit Roll-Ups – Dare To Compare

Airheads, one of America’s top non-chocolate candies, are taffy-like bars that come in six deliciously bold flavors: Cherry, Strawberry, Watermelon, Green Apple, Blue Raspberry, and White Mystery. Several times a year, additional flavors are created to refresh tired taste buds. The corporate website ( displays everything you ever wanted to know about Airheads and then some. What’s not mentioned, however, is that Airheads can be used to sensually enhance oral sex. BUT… are they as good as Fruit Roll-Ups?

Fruit Roll-Ups when properly moistened and carefully applied, adhere to selected body parts, much like a second skin. Fruit Roll-Ups come in lots of interesting flavors, colors, and designs. Camouflage, tiger stripes, and tie-die are only a few of the styles to choose from to perk up ho hum anatomical scenery.

Unlike Fruit Roll-Ups, Airheads do not adhere to the skin. When used to tweek oral sex, they must be held in place or moved around with a variety of labial and lingual techniques. This can complicate an otherwise simple activity. Like Fruit Roll-Ups, this practice is best performed on hairless areas.

Sensual snackers are encouraged to explore and create individualized pleasures and passions . Creativity and commitment to the art define success and increases the possibility of mutual satisfaction and plentiful laughter. Trial and error simply adds to the fun of the experience. There’s no wrong way to eat an Airhead or a Fruit Roll-Up, on or around a lover’s body part, as long as it feels and/or tastes good for all.

Perfect as Halloween give-aways and for any-time snacking, Airheads (available in mini and full size bars) are wonderful. However, in the oral arts department, Fruit Roll-Ups (also available in mini and maxi) reign supreme.

Airheads Versus Fruit Roll-Ups


* Gender friendly

Saturday, August 22, 2009


Twitter is a free social networking service. People follow one another via webposts (aka Tweets) which are brief comments that may not exceed 140 characters. It’s a little like writing Haiku but a lot easier; there are no rules regarding the arrangement of syllables in a given number of lines.

The Twittisphere is populated with bloggers, entrepreneurs, and miscellaneous others with something (not always meaningful) to say. I sometimes think of Tweeters as nothing more than digital screamers competing to be heard over an abundance of pixilated noise.

Celebrity Tweeters seem to enjoy collecting lots of followers who enjoy the pretense of feeling connected to pop idols. Ashton Kutcher has 3,303,082 followers; he follows 192. The Ellen Show has 2,972,305 followers; she follows 26. Oprah has 2,069,394 followers; she follows 15. I have 1,141 followers; I follow 1,146. I admit I want more followers and it seems that the more I have, the more I want. I rarely follow people who don’t follow me; I find that self-deprecating. Some Tweeters send thank you messages to new followers, however, the messages are generally auto-responses (a brainchild which leaves me totally cold).

I suppose the idea of signing up at is to expose yourself (so to speak) and be visible to the millions of people who might read your blog or buy your product. Every now and then, something novel shows up in the sea of sameness. Bitch O Gram ( is one such innovative concept which allows a buyer to send a COMPLETELY anonymous message through email, phone text, or USPS post card.

Do I recommend Twitter? I’m not really sure. But if you sign up, please Follow Me.

Musical Gift #2 For You: Deva Premal

There’s music for every occasion and purpose. Carefully selected tunes can lift downtrodden spirits, propagate joyfulness, inspire dancing, or enhance a meditation practice. Sensual Meditation (see previous blog entry so named) is a vehicle which can transport individuals to blissfully altered states of consciousness during lovemaking.

Rarely a day goes by that I don’t listen to the music of Deva Premal ( . She and the love of her life, Miten, create and perform soul nourishing music. On and off the yoga mat, in my office, and as background during my developing sensual meditation practice, the music of Deva Premal and Miten takes me to soulful places I once thought were beyond my reach. Om Mani Padme Hum, from the cd Love Is Space, is one of my favorite sacred chants. Enjoy.

Oral Sex: A Hazard To Health And Wellness?

Borderline hypochondriacs as well as health buffs are certain to wonder (at least every now and then) whether or not oral sex (in small or large doses) can have a negative impact on health and wellness. The answer is a resounding yes and no.

My previously aligned and perfect teeth have undoubtedly shifted. One front tooth, in particular, has moved noticeably out of position. Staring in the mirror (long and often) has contributed significantly to my angst and has made me worry whether or not too much oral sex has been the cause of this alarming rearrangement.

Dr. De J (my dentist) responded to my query professionally and confidently. “Oral sex, unless it’s practiced 24/7, will not move teeth.” He promptly explained why my front tooth moved out of alignment; and it had nothing, absolutely nothing, to do with my enthusiastic devotion to the oral arts. I was reassured.

Other mildly hypochondriacal questions come to mind, the answers to which seem obvious. The use of candy during sensual fellatio and cunnilingus, for example, requires common sense (see posts Candy-copia and Warnings And Disclaimers if you’re a newbie and require additional information). Use candy in moderation. Brush your teeth after eating. Use caramels and other sticky confections sparingly and with care (especially) if dental fillings or appliances are in place. Exercise consummate caution to avoid choking.

Sexually transmitted diseases, on the other hand, can be the unhappy result of poorly executed oral sex. A recent study in the New England Journal of Medicine (,8599,1619814,00.html) showed that men who reported having six or more oral sex partners had a significantly increased risk of developing some sort of oral cancer.

The upshot is: don’t fret about having to give up or minimize impassioned and/or candy- coated oral pleasures in the name of health and wellness. Just practice and enjoy your oral artistry with meticulousness and good sense.

Musical Gift #1 For You: MC Yogi

MC Yogi is a spiritual rapper. The concept might sound like an oxymoron; but it isn’t… not by a long shot. The artist and his unique style of yogic hip-hop have been acknowledged in mainstream media such as The New York Times and Billboard.

Enjoy the YouTube tune, Krishna Love, from the MC Yogi cd, Elephant Power. Visit the website Buy a copy of the cd, available at the website store. You'll be ecstatically chanting rap and dancing, even in your seat, straight away. Namaste.

Erotic Emollients

Ads by main stream companies selling personal lubricants are all over the air waves and Internet. What this means is that the market for erotic emollients has expanded exponentially, now targeting groups of people not previously considered lubricant buyers. No longer only for pre and post menopausal women, lubricants are great for young and old alike as well as folks of either gender.

The K-Y Brand product line may be the best known and most visible in the marketplace. With an attractive presence on the Internet (, the K-Y website features product information, an Intimacy Index with which you can “discover your relationship’s intimacy level,” a Massage Guide with helpful hints, and a Relationship Registry where you can create an intimate profile to share with a lover. You can fill your online cart with vaginal moisturizers, warming lubricants that tingle, arousal gels, and scented massage oils.

Astroglide is another primo lubricant with a delightful presence on the Internet ( On the site you’ll find~ Lubes: The Naked Truth, a Pop Quiz that sheds light on lube myths, an Astro-Blast game, and a fabulous, really fabulous info-packed Glide Guide blog that’s packed, really packed with useful information. And that’s not all; there’s a Frictionary which details “everything you ever wanted to know about personal lubricants.” The product line includes a Glycerin and Paraben-free love liquid for the sensitive and allergic, warming products, and a flavored glide called Sensual Strawberry… Yummo!

I have no problem whatsoever buying personal lubricants. However, for some odd reason, I’m shamefully inhibited when it comes to recycling. I don’t feel comfortable leaving an empty container on my kitchen counter (where I generally leave soon-to-be-recycled material) and I’m compelled to bury the empties beneath the seltzer and wine bottles on recycling day. I’ve even considered throwing the empties out instead of recycling them. What am I hiding and from whom? Perhaps I should proudly display the empties, right on top, and call it a public service message.

The Jackpot Of Love

An escape from the daily grind, even a brief one, is a great way for couples to celebrate their coupleness and refresh their relationship. For partners with common interests and those who (at least) meet the minimum daily requirement for verbal intercourse, getting away can be emotionally and sensually restorative.

Many parents all too readily neglect alone time with their spouse. Their children’s academic timelines and extra curricular commitments become the family priorities, leaving little energy and financial resources available for parental pleasure. My husband and I are a case in point.

We have never, ever been away from our home and children for an overnight date until a very recent jaunt to Atlantic City. Finally able to extricate myself from my home, adult children and cats, I booked an overnight stay at Caesars. We quickly settled into a comfortable room, walked the Boardwalk, visited the casino, dined leisurely and yummily, and stopped into IT’SUGAR (a magnificently stocked candy emporium) to purchase a late night love snack of blue M & Ms and yummy Gummy Worms. The accommodations and environs contributed to some smokin’ hot fun.

Lovers, who take the opportunity to loosen themselves from the domestic doldrums of life, are encouraged to:

  • Be affectionate (kiss and hold hands).
  • Be complimentary without being full of shit (surely there must be something flattering to say).
  • Have a bit of a sexy game plan (If you can't come up with something creative, buy a How To book in the sexy aisle at Barnes and Noble).
  • Talk about happy things.
  • Laugh as much as possible.
  • Have a great time.

There are scads of lip smacking deals online and elsewhere for Caesars, part of the Harrah’s family of hotels and casinos, as well as other area highlights. Even losing money in the casino seems inconsequential (provided the gambling is done responsibly) when compared to winning The Jackpot of love during a successful romantic getaway.
