Women say: Sex is not romance!

BY DONNA HUSSEY-WHYTE All Woman writer | Monday, April 21, 2014    

Women Sex is not romance!

The definition of romance seems to hold a different meaning for women than it does for men. For some women it is a feeling of excitement and mystery associated with love and involves things like a simple kiss goodbye or a dinner for two under the stars. Romance is what some women believe to be the journey that leads to finally giving of oneself in the bedroom. On the other hand, a number of men believe that being a good lover in bed is what romance is all about and never see the need to hold ... Read More

Hubby's babymother is a pest

With Wayne Powell MA Counselling Psychology Relationship Counsellor | Monday, April 21, 2014    

Hubby's babymother is a pest

Dear Counsellor, I am reaching out to you for help on how to handle this issue with my husband and his pest of a babymother. My husband is a wonderful, God-fearing, Jamaican man and I love him dearly. In the beginning of our relationship he was not honest about his child back in Jamaica. Something in my heart kept informing me that he was not being honest. Well, after a few months he finally came to me — as humble as he is — and he confessed that he does have a son that he supports ... Read More

Birth control
and you
The Mirena

THE Mirena is a soft, flexible levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine device that is inserted in a woman to prevent conception for up to five years. The T-shaped device is generally inserted by a doctor and works by releasing progestin. According to obstetrician/gynaecologist Dr Charles Rockhead, the Mirena secretes about 20 micrograms of progesterone in 24 hours when it is placed in the cervix. "So it has advantages beyond contraception. Sometimes it's good for patients who have haemorrhaging ... Read More

Check your child's cellphone!

IF some parents could see the pictures, videos, text messages, and conversations that their children are engaged in and exposed to on cellphones and tablets, they would be shocked. More and more children are being given these gadgets with data plans and left up to their own devices when using them. But experts warn that parents need to constantly check to see what their children are doing with these tools of edu-tainment. "I think parents really need to be a lot more vigilant in this time whe ... Read More

Myths surrounding athlete's foot.

ATHLETE's foot (AF), also known as Tinea pedis, is a fungal infection which affects twice as many men as women. It is said to be more common in hot climates, like Jamaica, because sweat helps the fungus to grow. In this condition fungus grows on your foot, mostly between your toes, and the foot will then react to these growths by itching, reddening and sometimes with cracked skin and a strong odour. Dermatologist Dr Patricia Yap said the condition is quite common and persons will develop it a ... Read More

Don't let the kids see you argue

Don't let the kids see you argue

NO family is perfect, and so every couple will have a spat every once in while, but experts suggest that parents try not to expose their children to too many of these arguments, as this can impact their personal growth and development. "Usually the children get anxious, because when they see mommy and daddy arguing, they might think the family is going to break up or somebody is going to kill somebody," said consultant psychiatrist, Dr Yvonne Bailey-Davidson "Arguing is a part of life, so it's ...

7 Lucky signs he truly loves You

Some people, especially those from rural communities, may recall back in the days seeing the bright yellow vines growing on trees that were popularly known as 'love bush'. Finding out whether or not someone was in love with you was simple. All you had to do was draw a handful of the vines spit on it, call the name of your mate and throw back the vines on a tree of your choice. If after a few days the vines were still alive and spreading then you would know for sure that he/she was in love with ... Read More
