Turning pro at the age of 15, Sloane Stephens rose to fame at the 2013 Australian Open when she defeated the then-world No. 3 Serena Williams. Since then, Stephens has won the 2017 US Open and is currently ranked No. 9 in the world. Although she lost in the third round of 2019 Wimbledon, Stephens has the ability to hit powerful winners as she takes large swings with her forehand. Considered one of the best up-and-coming players, Sloane is known for her nonchalant mindset when playing tournaments.

Here are five things you can do immediately to improve your oral hygiene, prevent tooth sensitivity, and avoid dental issues down the road.

Could The 'O Method' Be Just What You Need To Have The Sex You Want?

An author by the name of Alexandra Katehakis once said this about orgasms: “Great spiritual teachers throughout the ages have stated that orgasm is the closest some people come to a spiritual experience because of the momentary loss of self. Why is this true? Because with spiritual sex, you move beyond orgasm into a connection with yourself, your partner, and the divine — recognizing them all as one.”

If it’s counterintuitive to what you’ve ever thought about orgasms, believe it or not, there are even pastors who have said that climaxing is the closest comprehension of heaven on this side of it: it is an extreme kind of bliss that is indescribable and is best experienced between two people who share a sacrificial kind of love for one another.
