Incorporating a TED talk into your morning ritual or nighttime routine is a great way to get inspired.

Life & Travel

TED talks are short powerful talks that often motivate viewers in some way. TED's mission is to spread ideas through concise but powerful talks, which are usually 18 minutes or less. I was first introduced to these talks upon joining a social group at work, and I've been hooked ever since.

Incorporating a TED talk into your morning ritual or nighttime routine is a great way to get inspired. I also allow these to play at work while I multitask. Just listening makes a major difference in my day.

Here are a few stellar TED talks that will have you motivated all week. Check them out and let us know your faves in the comments section below:

You know what? Sometimes, you've got to push a few coins aside and determine in your mind that you're going to invest into your sex life (if you had a sex jar, this would be easier to do, by the way. You can read more about what that is all about here). If you're someone who is totally down to do that, but you don't have a clue where to begin, boy have you come to the right place! Between the joy of being a writer who sometimes gets samples sent to me, the constant research that I do for the couples I work with and having folks shout-out certain items semi-often, I've compiled a list of 12 sex-related items that may seem random AF (a pun is kind of intended there) and, at the same time, can make sex so much better between you and your partner.

Recently, I was talking to a friend of mine about someone who once told me that they had an annual week-long summer rendezvous that lasted for over 15 years with someone else. Yep — this individual would meet up with another person who lived in a different state, solely to have sex for a week straight, and then return to their city as if nothing ever happened. According to them, the only reason why this ritual romp eventually came to an end is because the other person decided to get serious about someone else; however, it wasn't until it ended that the person who told me the story realized how attached they actually had become to their sex partner (a cautionary tale).

When it comes to sexuality, there have always been societal limitations centered on what is "acceptable." However, with more honest conversations about how fluid sexuality and sexual expression can be, now there are so many more opportunities for self-exploration and taking back ownership of our identities again. One couple that is living their truth and being sexual beings unapologetically while living and loving their lives are Jasmine Johnson and King Noire.
