How to Safely Enjoy Sex

Sex is one of the most enjoyable things in life. However, an unplanned pregnancy and/or sexually transmitted disease can ruin one’s sex life. Fortunately, there are a number of things that people can do to practice safer sex. Below are some tips for having a safe and enjoyable sexual experience:

Use A Condom Every Time

One of the best things that you can do to prevent the spread of sexually transmitted diseases is to wear a condom every time that you have sex. Condoms are also about 97-98 percent effective at preventing pregnancy if they are used correctly and consistently. Before you or your partner put on the condom, it should be inspected for holes. Furthermore, a condom should never be used more than once.

Get Tested

Even though you may trust your partner, there is always the chance that he or she could be sleeping with someone else. Your chance of catching a sexually transmitted disease will be greater if you have an unfaithful partner. That is why you should get tested for HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases at least once a year. If you are an escort or someone who is promiscuous, then you will need to get tested at least once every six months.

Consider Using Another Contraceptive

Condoms are not 100 percent effective at preventing pregnancy, so you or your partner should consider using another contraceptive method. Birth control pills, patches, implants and shots are just a few of the many birth control options that are available for women. If you are a woman who has had at least one child, then you should talk to your doctor about getting an intrauterine device. An intrauterine device is a contraceptive that can prevent pregnancy anywhere from one to 12 years. This device is over 99 percent effective, which is why it is a great choice for an escort.

If you have decided that you do not want any more children, then you should consider getting a vasectomy or tubal litigation. Both of these methods are over 99 percent effective.

Practice Abstinence

There is nothing wrong with being abstinent. In fact, the only way to completely avoid sexually transmitted diseases and pregnancy is to not engage in sex at all. Not only can you prevent STDs and pregnancy by practicing abstinence, but you could also save yourself a lot of heartache in the long run. Abstinence is certainly not the most popular choices nowadays, but it is the best choice.

Hair Loss In Women - Six Causes

Hair loss in women differs with hair loss in men in the following ways:

Signs of hair loss in men:

Receding hairline
Moderate to extensive hair loss, particularly on the crown of the head
Signs of hair loss in women:

General thinning of hair all over the head
Moderate hair loss on the crown of the head or at the hairline
In summary, hair loss in women can start around 30 years of age and usually involves overall thinning rather than a bald patch. It often becomes more noticeable around 40 years of age.

Here are six causes of hair loss in women which can help you identify the possible cause and decide weather to just wait at the hair to regrow, or if it is a more serious reason, get professional advice and act appropriately:

#1. Hair loss in women is often connected to pregnancy. Three to six months after delivering a child, many women notice a degree of hair loss as the hair goes into a resting phase because of the physiological impact of the pregnancy on the body.

#2. A woman's body can also be greatly effected by intensive diets and loosing a lot of weight in a short period of time.

#3. Severe illnesses and infections can put great stress on the body thus triggering the hair into a resting phase which results hair shedding. Often the body recovers naturally within three to nine months and the hair begins to regrow until it almost resembles its original condition.

#4. Hair loss in women can be aggravated farther by improper use of chemical hair treatments such as dyes, tints, bleaches, straighteners, and permanent waives.

Generally, healthy hair can undergo these treatments without showing signs of stress, if they are not done too often. However, if hair is breaking or if it becomes brittle it is best to stop these procedures until the hair has grown out.

#5. The constant pulling of hair with styles such as ponytails and braids can sometimes cause hair loss in women. Avoid pulling the hair tight with these styles.

#6. Rough combing and brushing of the hair and vigorous rubbing with a towel after shampooing can cause it to break, adding farther to the problem of Hair loss in women. Wide toothed combs and brushes with smooth tips are recommended to minimize hair breakage.


Although hair loss is distressing for everyone, hair loss in women is perhaps a cause of more anxiety as it can lead to feelings of lack of confidence and femininity.

Often, proper care and attention to hair can greatly reduce the danger of hair loss.

In other cases involving illness or heredity, consulting with a professional hair stylist can result in a hair style that minimizes the affect of hair loss in women.
