As many of you may know, I LOVE yoga! I have been practicing Bikram yoga for almost three years now and find it to be very therapeutic and beneficial in many different ways. I am pleased to announce that Pittsburgh is holding its second annual Yoga Expo, which has been choreographed by one of my favorite Bikram teachers, the lovely Rebecca Rankin. I sat down recently with Rebecca and chatted about all the excitement surrounding the event. If you will be in the Pittsburgh area this Sunday, February 17, come check it out!

As if women in Saudi Arabia aren’t treated poorly enough, still not being allowed to drive, attend school, get a job, or travel outside of the country without getting “permission” from a male guardian, this new level of control just adds more fuel to the ever-growing fire of crazy.

Men’s Health recently conducted research to see which cities were getting it on...and on...and on...the results will definitely surprise you (I know I was shocked!)
The “research” took into consideration things like birth rates, sales of sex toys, and condom sales. I don’t know if birth rates necessarily translate into “sexually satisfied” because what I’ve heard from most new parents is that you kind of cool down between the sheets once the babies arrive! And, just because you buy condoms also doesn’t necessarily mean you have a satisfying sex life...but I could see how the sex toys would factor in!
Here is the list...and the top spot has claimed this coveted position (no pun intended!) for TWO years running now!

There is always something very special about voting. It is the opportunity to select between two, three, or even more potential visions for the future. Each vision has merit, but is weighed by the community at large. And if the vision for the future does not work out, you can always elect someone else next time. And, how could you ever forget the first time you voted? It’s a proud moment for everyone.
However, it isn’t as simple to vote as it should be this year. Recently, in Pennsylvania, a voter identification law was signed into existence that will require all individuals voting at the polls to carry photographic identification before they are allowed to vote.
Do boys and girls really learn differently or are these just societal constraints that we have put on them to behave in a certain way? Lisa Davis and I discuss whether or not single-sex education is better for the future generations of this country.
Anyone who has a vagina or knows someone that does, well, you may want to read this...
We all know Republican Vice Presidential hopeful, Paul Ryan, is a tough-talkin’ conservative. But, did you also know he is a lady-killer? That’s right, he has some awesome pick-up lines for the ladies of this country. Let’s see if they would work on you...
Language is a powerful tool. Possibly the most powerful tool that we as humans have learned to wield over the years. Words can inspire, words can demoralize, and words can shape the course of our humanity. And depending on the context...words can take on different meanings, like chameleons changing color right before your eyes.
Take the word “bitch” for example. According to the dictionary, the definition of bitch is as follows: (Be prepared...it has a lot of different uses!)
In other shocking news, the sky is blue.
Many amazing records have been broken this year at the Olympics, including world-renowned swimmer, Michael Phelps’ astonishing 20 medal achievement, the most ever awarded to any Olympian in the history of the sport. But, the record that seems to be receiving the most attention is the fact that more condoms than ever, 150,000 to be exact, have been given away (free!) at the Olympics this year in London.

I’ve been accused of smiling too much and not taking life seriously enough. I love all things silly and and more often than not, I am laughing hysterically at something. Things that may not even be funny to other people, like when a little girl I know says, “Hoobs,” instead of ‘boobs.’ Gets me every. Single. Time.
I laugh when I get nervous. I laugh when I get upset. I laugh when I do something stupid. At all times my laughter is genuine, it just carries a different tone at certain moments.
Until women have full bodily autonomy all across the world, we must not stop raising questions even if they seem controversial to certain cultures. And now even the doctors within these cultures are starting to raise their eyebrows at what seems to be an unnecessarily invasive and medically unwarranted examination.
I don't care how cynical you are about the idea of marriage, or commitment, or romance...or any of the other words surrounding the idea of a engagement proposal. This is one of the sweetest, most over-the-top proposals I have ever seen and I just had to share! So, take off the sarcasm hat (for just a minute!) and let yourself enjoy the thing we all want in this world...a love that goes the distance!
Forget the gays...they have nothing on Facebook, apparently! Maybe the evangelicals should start going after Mark Zuckerberg, instead! (I’m sure he’s in Leviticus, somewhere!)
