The Sexiest Man Alive 2010: Dr. Mehmet Oz

People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive 2010, Ryan Reynolds, is undoubtedly a Hottie.  The 34 year old Canadian actor husband of Scarlett Johansson had stiff competition this year including the usual cast of sexy characters Brad Pitt and George Clooney. However, the Everyday Goddess pick for The Sexiest Man Alive 2010 goes to the uber-sexy-yum-boat of daytime TV and New York Presbyterian Hospital, the original Dr. McDreamy, Mehmet Oz. 

In addition to his non-traditional-pretty-boy good looks, Dr. Oz has a toned and flexible body (hidden beneath those sexy blue scrubs) and a charismatic smile known to melt the hearts of Everyday Goddesses in the audience of his Emmy-award winning show... as well as those who watch him in the comfort of their homes in every corner of America.  

Dr. Oz (in scrubs, casual clothes, or tux and tie) is the complete package of sexy good looks, personality, wit, and charm.  Add to that his genuine desire and ability to promote good health and he’s the obvious Goddess choice for Sexiest Man Alive.

The Whole Truth And Nothing But The Truth

Speaking one’s truth isn’t always easy. 

We worry that our truth won’t be well received.
We’re concerned about hurting our listener’s feelings. 
We think perhaps we shouldn’t.

Whether we’re in the bedroom hoping that our lover remembers when, where, why, and how to touch us; or we’re among friends who have forgotten what we’ve already said we want or need, it’s always desirable to speak our truth gently and with pure intent.

Sometimes speaking our truth gets us what we want.
Sometimes not.
Sometimes we must scream our truth as softly and sweetly as possible.
And when our truth still isn’t heard, we may be required to redirect ourselves toward people and situations in which our truth can flow unobstructed.

"It is time to speak your Truth. Create your community, be good to each other. And do not look outside yourself for the leader.”  -Hopi Elder Prayer-

Step Two: Developing A Theme For Theme-Park-Quality Sex

Developing a theme to ensure Theme-Park-Quality Sex may be accomplished simply or with great detail.  Your come-hither motif may be a succulent one-night idea that flows through your sexual experience in a flash; or it may be an ongoing flow of creativity fueled by pursuing a specific interest.

Since the Autumnal Equinox, I've furthered my spiritual education by attending friendly gatherings (e.g. Full Moon Fire Ceremony) as well as formal workshops (e.g. Opening to Channel and Spiritual Sexuality).  It’s been no surprise that my experiences have contributed to my sensual inventiveness and well-being.

The National Congress on Spiritual Sexuality & Sexual Healing, recently held in NYC, was most certainly a gift from The Association for Spirituality and Psychotherapy.  Presenters Lee Holden (The Tao of Sexual Secrets), Gina Ogden, Ph.D (Sex, Spirit, & Shamanism: The Healing Connection), and Michael Mirdad, Ph.D (Exploring Sexual Tantra) discussed their topics brilliantly and enlightened an eager group of healers from various disciplines with an integrative approach to mind, body,  spirit, and sacred sexuality. Needless to say, the conference was awesome.  

When I returned home from Day 1 of the week-end, my honey got a sneak peak of what I had learned earlier that day… and it was very good. Day 2 was to be even better.  The pressure was on to do my three newest gurus proud and be the first of our colleagues to master our newly acquired skills. I fully expected my qi gong practice, tantric skills, and shamanic endeavors to immediately result in memorable sexual alchemy.  Imagine for a moment how heightened expectations coupled with the mental machinations that accompany self-imposed pressure may yield insufficient results. You see, even Goddesses suffer from performance anxiety.

The week-end was FUN-FABulous; and although the initial aftermath wasn’t ALL that I aspire to, I’m confident that with practice my husband and I will continue to evolve our relationship into one that’s sacredly intimate and passionate.
