Five Things Men Need to Know About Pregnancy

Five Things Men Need to Know About Pregnancy

While most men don’t want to admit it, they are all pretty much clueless when it comes to women. This is about a million times truer when dealing with the subject of pregnant women, as it combines two things that they know basically nothing about. Luckily, this article will provide them with a few simple guidelines and things they really need to know about pregnancy. Hopefully, with these useful tips the next nine months will be an enjoyable experience for both.

1. Pregnancy is hard.

Ok, guys, when the woman starts whining and complaining about how hard pregnancy is, listen to her, because she is not exaggerating. Carrying another life is not something to be taken lightly. This is a very rough nine months for the poor lady, and although all her griping might get annoying, just remember, it can only get better from here. Well, usually. Try to really listen to her and try your best to sympathize with her. Don’t try and solve her problems, because you probably can’t, but listen and discuss like a girlfriend would. This will be very difficult for you but it will do wonders. Trust me.

2. Women need attention.

In case it wasn’t already obvious, girls like to be paid attention to. They need affection, love, care, and presents (presents especially). Females need affection, especially when pregnant. They feel like their bodies are hideous and huge and they need someone to tell them they are still beautiful. This is the guy’s job. Though she doesn’t need false flattery, try to compliment her at least once a day and show her attention and affection when it’s pretty obvious she’s having a hard day. You might also be surprised at the number of points you will earn for a fabulous foot massage; this is actually the perfect time to give her a foot massage, as her feet can become swollen and very sore. She will love you for it!

3. Pregnant chicks are moody.

One of the most important things to remember about pregnancy is that it messes people up. Seriously though, being pregnant can make a woman feel on top of the world and giddy or angrier and touchier than a football coach losing by one touchdown with ten seconds left in the game. The body and its hormones are all out of whack, making these ladies a ball of emotions and more unpredictable than ever.

4. It’s a girl thing.

Obviously, men cannot get pregnant. Look at this as a blessing and enjoy the fact that the woman has to do all the work. All a guy has to do is enjoy a great relationship, wait for the positive pregnancy test, then sit back and enjoy the process of his child being created for him. Think about it—men can still enjoy a nice drink here and there but their women can’t have anything. Guys can eat whatever they want; pregnant girls can’t. The list goes on. So, relax and enjoy the ride while the lady does her thing.

5. This too shall pass.

Though pregnancy might seem like it will never end, it’s only nine months. It might be hard, but it isn’t impossible to do. Dote on her as much as possible during her nine-month journey, because she is working hard to create a precious little life. Besides, once it’s over, things will level out again (besides having to take care of the newborn baby). So, just calm down, take it a day at a time, and remember that everything is going to be just fine and life will return to what it once was.

10 Reasons Why You Should Get Naked More Often

10 Reasons Why You Should Get Naked More Often

Getting naked is often thought of as an act that should only be reserved for intimacy—and even then some get squirmy! Many people are more comfortable believing that the more clothes you are wearing the better. However, getting naked more often can have great benefits for you. Here are 10 great reasons to get naked more often:

1. It burns more fat.

Your body’s main supply of brown adipose tissue (BAT), or good fat cells, are located around your shoulder blades and neck. When your body is exposed to the elements and is cooler, the BAT proliferates and essentially kills the white adipose tissue, aka bad fat cells. So, not wearing any clothes helps promote this and makes you healthier.

2. You’ll become comfortable with who you are.

Self-acceptance is hard to come by today. Ask anyone you know and see if they are happy with themselves. Chances are they will say they are too fat, not pretty, and find all of the flaws that they can. In reality, others do not see this. They see that you are beautiful. When you begin to get naked, you learn to appreciate your body and realize how beautiful you really are.

3. It saves you money.

Being naked more often saves on buying new clothing since you are wearing nothing a lot of the time. Be careful when you are in public, though—you may have to put on some clothes!

4. It increases your immune system.

Being naked and getting exposure to the sun’s rays actually increases your body’s vitamin D levels. Vitamin D is directly related to your immune system. When you have optimal levels of vitamin D, your body’s immune system is impeccable, and you will be better equipped to ward off viruses, including the common cold and flu. So go lay outside naked on your private balcony or in your yard.

5. It makes you face your fears head on.

People cringe today when you mention the words “get naked.” They are so afraid of it—and today’s children are so ingrained with this—that they must wear layer upon layer to deal with their body image. However, when you are naked, you face your fears of body image and self-acceptance, experiencing some of the best moments of your life.

6. You will feel better in your clothes.

When you do wear clothes (because not everyone has yet accepted being naked in public), you will start to choose clothing that accentuates the parts of your body that you love. You will begin to notice that maybe that muumuu does not flatter your beautiful curves and start wearing clothes that you love.

7. You will embrace vulnerability.

When you put yourself out there, it is a natural reaction to have fear and worry. However, this is an opportunity to embrace being vulnerable. It allows you to think and get down to the core of what really matters and what is of importance to you. When you strip away all of the excess, you are 100% you and willing to take on anything that comes your way.

8. You will show the world the real you.

Today, we have many ways of altering our appearance from our true body image when we wear clothing. Some people alter their image so much that they fear getting naked with the person they love. It seems crazy that this could even happen; however, the rise in use of breast-enhancing bras and Spanx products has put this idea into people’s minds. This all goes back to being comfortable with your true body image. If a person really does love you, then they should not love you based upon your image. If they do, then you may even decide that the ever-so-uncomfortable leggings that go up above your waist to hold in all of the imperfections may not be worth it after all.

9. You will have fun.

Well, this could go in all sorts of directions. But when you are comfortable with your naked body and see it as being flattering, then life is more fun. You start realizing that you are beautiful and are willing to do more things that you probably would not have done otherwise—with and without your clothes on.

10. You can have intercourse with the lights on.

Many people are self-conscious about the way they look and decide that the less lighting the better when they are intimate with their partner. It’s nothing new. If you survey your best friends, you will probably come to this conclusion too. They may say that it even gets awkward, because they are more concerned with what their partner thinks of their body than just having and enjoying amazing intercourse. When you love the way you look naked, you will also want to have your partner see you at your best.

What are you waiting for? Start spending more time in the buff today and begin to change the way you think about your body.
