"Are You Sexually Fit? Lifestyle Changes for Better Sex."

Oh, good lord, this presentation of sex as a component of a healthy lifestyle is just so completely and annoyingly unsexy.
Your Homework for Today:
As you go through your day, think about how each daily activity affects your sexual health and whether it fundamentally helps you or hurts you. Take notes as you go along. For example:
  • Walked halfway to work before getting on the subway and walked all the way home. (Helped)
  • Brought a healthy lunch instead of going to the cafeteria. (Helped)
  • Skipped afternoon cigarette break. (Helped)
  • Grabbed a handful of candy sitting by the copy machine. (Hurt)
  • Drank too much coffee. (Hurt)
  • Canceled a squeezed-in social obligation to make her day less hectic. (Helped)
  • Shut off computer and went to sleep at a reasonable hour, ignoring work e-mails that could wait until the next day, and slept for eight blessed hours. (Helped)
Once you've gone through your day, take a good look at your list and flesh it out. Are there more hurts than helps? What else could you do that would help? Are there behaviors that could be altered to move them from the hurt to the help category? Tomorrow, do your best to improve the ratio of helps to hurts. 
Jeez. How long will it be before some First Lady adopts Good Sex as her pet issue? 

Link via Instapundit, who doesn't seem to have found the article ludicrous.

The first need is for a spouse that is in a safe relationship with you. Then the more intimate love the better, except the need to stop and eat. Also light eating and enough rest to fight the stress demons of modern life helps. Even athiests know that living out a traditional Christian Sexual morality is great advice to avoid serious disasters.

For our hostess, the first might have prevented the second.

Could we wait out the current First Lady and let the next President make it her pet issue?

Please?

So who pulled the short straw and will have to play Biden for this year's Halloween passion fest?

If Hillary is the next President, then the First Spouse will have a good pet issue.

Well, Instapundit hasn't experienced menopause yet!








I kid, I kid! Seriously, it's a very lame article, provided that you think the author had any intention of making sex sound appealing. I'm not so sure of that ...

edutcher said...

There was also an item that a man with some belly fat and a bit of a tummy was a better lover because he lasted three times longer than a buff guy.

Much better advice.

She'll have to get past Dr Ruth, an old Haganah sniper.

If you saw the Drudgtaposition, it looks like those days, even with Viagra, are over.

Ah, sex with someone you love.

This is the enviro-kook equivalent of wanting to make me constantly aware of my carbon footprint and how it affects all life on this dying planet that human being have killed to extinction.

traditionalguy said...

Sex relations maybe God's way of increasing the valuable CO2 concentrations WE need for plant crops flourishing. It's all that heavy breathing that creates the new CO2. If we had AlGore in office, then Tipper could lecture us on safe sex,( i.e., sex with anyone except the whoremonger President.

ironrailsironweights said...

There's one physical change that women could do that will lead to much better sex .... hmmm, I can't think of what it might be.

"Are You Sexually Fit?"

Stay tuned for the weightlifting portion of the competition.

And don't miss the dismount.

This is where the French start making sense with all their "Americans don't know how to live" shit.

Titus said...

I am sorry but please, if you can, please refrain from a sentence with "Sex and Instapundit".

My mind begins to wonder and it is not a pretty picture.

Trooper York list:

1: Had a C note in my pocket for a hooker[helped].

2: Wearing a Yankee shirt that I outgrew 5 year ago[hurt].

3: Hooker I propositioned was an undercover cop[really hurt].

4: Got bent over in the lockup by a 300lb. gangster[actually didn't hurt as much as I thought...kinda liked it].

Because it's not. A little self-reflection when we're off balance with ourselves and, hence, our relationships (sex being a small sliver of that pie), is a good thing for those of us who don't come by it naturally. Jeez.

Hopefully, this first lady will be Carla Bruni, and not...someone else.

I'm a long-time reader, but I think Glenn Reynolds has an annoying habit of implicitly bragging about his sex life.

kentuckyliz said...

Perhaps Glenn was a geek all his life and he's rather proud of himself for bagging a girl and she's not fugly.

But this "homework"--puhleeze. Strip all the charm and mystery and fun out of something, whydoncha.

Improving my sexual health:

1. took Mrs. to very nice hotel
2. plied her with very nice food and a little bit of booze (she has never even been tipsy, booze bill very low)
3. piled on compliments and chocolates
4. the Sinatra in the I-Pod didn't hurt

Has worked for 40 years, no sense changing now. Note to young men: being a suave gentlemen might improve you love life.

Freeman Hunt said...

I'm sure Franklin Covey is jumping right on this to churn out some "sexual health" themed planners.

Given the amount of copy spent explaining how to do it, you would think that sex was the most difficult and complex activity a human being could undertake.

Timon said...

The walk does not exist for its own sake, nor your food, nor friendship, but all is ordered to the higher good. In CCD, I learned to examine my conscience every day; this is the same thing, but the object of worship is sexual pleasure.

There is no pleasure but sexual pleasure.
