I'm not a snack, I'm a whole garden; one that needs water, sunshine, and positive words of affirmation to survive and thrive like the amazing lifeform that I am. And although I'm capable of getting full on all three of these things by my damn self, it's never a bad idea to have someone pour into you, especially if that someone is your partner. Recently, images surfaced of Wale and his new girlfriend, and he wants you to know that not only does she quench his thirst, but she offers him all of the sunshine and positive affirmations that his heart could handle.

In a live interview with Elliot Wilson, Wale let critics know that his girlfriend India Graham has a name we should get used to, so we should put some respect on it. Earlier this month, some good old fashioned PDA confirmed the couple's relationship, which Wale has *tried* to keep under wraps until now. According to the internet, the 22-year-old model is originally from Lansing, Michigan, loves cooking, and oh yeah, makes six figures a year, and during his interview, Wale had a word for India's critics:

"Now, you say 'that model chick.' By the grace of God, I don't ever want those words to leave your lips again like that, 'cause that ain't no model chick. That's a special human being that came in my life, taught me about affirmations, taught me how to love better, taught me how to be positive."

In the past, the rapper has been open about his issues with commitment and transparency in his romantic relationships and even was the subject of a "love intervention" on Jada Pinkett Smith's Red Table Talk. The father-of-one was previously linked to Chloe Alexis and says that although he and the mother of his child decided to find love outside of one another, he still will have her back any day, and that's on gang.

"I got one of the most beautiful, powerful, inspirational, dedicated baby mothers of all time. I do! Somewhere along the line, we lost our way – as far as us connecting as lovers – but I will always hold that woman down for the rest of my life until I have no motherf*ckin' breath left in my lungs."

Now, after taking time to heal from his past transgressions, Wale is ready to open his heart again, and from the looks of it, he's finally found the "Ambitious Girl" he dreamed of. Along with teaching him about the power of affirmation, Wale says India has helped him learn more about himself:

"That woman's beautiful inside and out. That woman taught me so much about myself. And model chick's disgustingly underplaying what she really is. She is a smart, beautiful, motivating Black woman. She just happens to be good and makes six figures for taking pictures."

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. Where's your pad at? You're definitely gonna wanna take note.

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). After I completed my lil' tale, my friend simply said, "Oh, I do that s — t every cuffing season. There are some people who I only talk to around this time of year, we f — k around and then that's that until the season comes around again."
