Pregnant During COVID-19? Here's What Doulas Want You To Know
Health

Remember, we never actually have control (and especially not during pregnancy). We can always only influence and set the stage the best we can to succeed, with the best people to support us along the way. We never know the exact path, so we can only focus on how we move through it.And anytime we want to shift, to better ourselves, be bigger, we need to go inward along the way. We need to contract in order to expand—hello, coping techniques!—because life is hard and scary at times, and there are growing pains we'll experience and lessons we need to learn along the way. We need to tune in to the compass inside of us.We know listening to what your body is telling you can be scary since most of us have a zillion reasons why we have a complicated relationship with it. But here's the thing about the body: If you can learn to trust it and feel safe in it, it can actually help you build up your connection to your gut, as well as ground you when your head or emotions feel too strong or out of control. So we need to build back up that trust so our head feels safe letting our body take the lead. How? Start listening and practicing! The following exercises were designed to help you do just that.

A Common Factor This Psychologist Sees Among Couples Not Having Sex
Health

"I don't care if I never have sex again."I hear this often from my married women clients, especially those who have children or are in their late 40s. The women who say this have one thing in common: They don't feel emotionally connected with their husbands. How lack of connection can affect your sex drive. Not everyone needs emotional connection for sex to be great, but in long-term relationships, the lack of connection can be a huge factor in a person's desire to have sex with their partner. In relationships between men and women, there can also sometimes be a chicken-or-egg problem when it comes to sex and connection: Many men say that they feel emotionally connected after sex, while many women need to feel emotionally connected in order to want to have sex. This isn't a hard-and-fast rule, of course—everyone's different—but I do regularly notice this conundrum among my clients.

Carnival and Cruise Industry Scramble to Survive
Travel

First, there was the Diamond Princess, stranded off the coast of Japan as the coronavirus infected hundreds of passengers. Then the Westerdam, circling in the sea for days with nowhere to dock. Then the Grand Princess, the Costa Luminosa and the Zaandam.Cruise ships have been a focal point of the coronavirus pandemic from the beginning, widely blamed for a series of major outbreaks that spread the disease across the world.Now, the companies that own those ships face a potential financial catastrophe. With most international travel halted, they have virtually no revenue. They have become symbols of deadly contagion. And despite assurances from President Trump, they were left out of the $2 trillion stimulus package Congress passed last month. While analysts say the major cruise lines have enough money to survive at least another six months, the companies are scrambling to line up new financing in anticipation of a slowdown that could last even longer.

My boyfriend has sexual anxiety and can only ejaculate through masturbation
Relationship

I have been with my boyfriend for eight months, and I am the second person he has slept with. We have amazing sex, very frequently, but the only way he can ejaculate is with his hand. He recently told me that the first time he had sex he couldn’t ejaculate and the person he had sex with made him feel horrible about it. He told me that when we have sex, it is all he can think about, but when he uses his hand, his mind is free, and he is therefore able to climax. What can I do to help him overcome this?If one is anxious during sex – especially about achieving something such as “being good in bed”, “making your partner orgasm”, “reaching climax later, earlier or at all” – then the point of lovemaking is lost. Talk with your boyfriend frankly about the purpose of having an erotic experience together and try to reach a mutual agreement that you will radically change your approach to this: simply allowing yourselves to give and receive pleasure – nothing else. If you remove the goal of climaxing in a particular way, and the performance anxiety, and take more quality time for your erotic connection, not only will you have far more enjoyable sex, but you will find that he will gradually learn to bridge the gap between his masturbation style and intercourse. Don’t try to stop him using his hand. As time goes on and you start to have anxiety-free, highly arousing experiences, gently and seductively encourage him to climax using his hand incrementally closer and closer to your vagina. With his increased confidence and arousal he should lose his reliance on manual stimulation.

Richard Peden: Alone, But Connected
Lifestyle

We are alone, but we are connected as never before. What will we do with this moment? Richard Peden has this Perspective. Life has shifted in my quiet neighborhood. The now unemployed carpenter is playing his drums everyday for a few hours much to the dismay of his close neighbors. But he has the time. People are walking the bare streets; people I have never met before from my quarantined terrace. Families, kids on scooters, singles with dogs — lots of dogs. I was worried about one 75-year-old man jogging and wheezing but he was moving and determined. Who are these strangers? Years of Buddhist practice obviously didn’t register because being forced to sit still in the current cacophony isn’t working for me. Or maybe it is. This is what it takes for, not only me but my neighbors to embody the cauldron we find ourselves in.  All the TV updates and hours spent rechecking news feeds is only numbing the desire not addressing it. We need to stay in and cease the spread of the unknown but … what about the known? In our most tender, vulnerable moments we desperately need the contact of other humans. We sadly lack the teachers to guide us in dealing with this chasm. We take to the streets to bump into something solid. So, we must rely on that crazy wisdom thing that makes hundreds go to their balconies each night and applaud the brave health workers … and those zany videos of our Zoom fetish … those photographers disobeying lockdowns to walk the now barren but somehow holy, pristine streets of Venice capturing the silence that had previously been forgotten. Will we find ourselves in our small apartments? Or are we anxious for this thing to be over so we can go back to … “normal”? This moment has brought me closer to my friends abroad and those on the street. For once we are under the same conditions of enclosure and opportunity. Now what? Do we go back to sleep? How do we dance the dream awake? All I know is I need to somehow tell the drummer down the street to listen to more of The Meters and a little less Skynyrd. With a Perspective, I’m Richard Peden. Richard Peden designs and builds custom wine cellars and is based in Sonoma.

"It is hard not to think that the President's loss of confidence in me derives from my having faithfully discharged my legal obligations as an independent and impartial Inspector General, and from my commitment to continue to do so," Atkinson said in a statement released Sunday night that was obtained by several news outlets and shared on social media."

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and a member of the Trump administration's coronavirus task force, told CNN’s Anderson Cooper that the federal government should enact a nationwide stay-at-home order to curtail the spread of the coronavirus in the United States."

In these scary times a hug would help, but it’s the one thing I cannot have | Rebecca Shaw
Relationship

The last few weeks, I’ve been thinking a lot about different types of physical touch. Unfortunately, that is a sentence that is always going to sound inherently creepy, but I think I can get away with it, considering current circumstances. I’ve been thinking about the time at Mardi Gras a mere month ago when four of my friends attacked me with hugs and kisses, completely enveloping me in a storm of affection. Thinking about my Nanna grabbing my hand as we walk together, her laughing and clutching my arm as I attempt to convince her to try a burrito (which she refuses because she’s too white and afraid of flavour). Remembering the countless small touches with past lovers, like resting my hand on their thigh as we watch TV, or rolling over in bed at night, and having them move to spoon me instinctively.

Potential Flaw: The Tamron 70-180mm F2.8 Is Missing a Very Big Feature
Photography

We’re sure everyone is asking why the Tamron 70-180mm f2.8 Di III VXD isn’t going for the extra 20mm to reach 200. The company has expressed many times that it was prioritizing weight, size, and cost. When you look at it from that standpoint, they’re totally right. At its current position, the Tamron 70-180mm f2.8 Di III VXD is a viable option over Sony’s 70-200mm f2.8 and f4 options. The enthusiast and the professional alike could both reach for this lens. But, if we’ve seen anything in the past few years, it’s a couple of significant trends that have been demanded by many photographers across the board. The first is better optics: Tamron’s are excellent, but not always what they claim according to our tests. The other is a big one: the image stabilization.

Evers previously had resisted delaying the primary.

Tamron Unveils Extremely Affordable 70-180mm F/2.8 for Sony E-Mount
Photography

After announcing the lens as “in development” way back in October, Tamron has finally officially unveiled the 70-180mm f/2.8 Di III VXD for the Sony E-mount—a 70-200mm f/2.8 competitor for full-frame mirrorless that costs just $1,200. That’s less than half the price of Sony’s $2,600 70-200mm f/2.8 GM.The 70-180mm f/2.8 is the third and final lens of Tamron’s quirky version of the so-called “holy trinity” of f/2.8 zooms. We have the 17-28mm f/2.8 Di III RXD, the 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III RXD, and now the 70-180mm f/2.8 Di III VXD. Sure, you lose 20mm on the long end, but that, claims Tamron, is where the trade-offs end.Tamron is calling this “the lightest and most compact f/2.8 telephoto zoom in its class”—a title it can easily claim thanks to the shorter 180mm maximum focal length and its extending zoom mechanism. It uses the same 67mm front filter thread as the 17-28 and the 28-75, weighs in at just 28.6oz (810g), and measures just 5.9 inches (149mm) in length at the 70mm setting.

The debate is not a new one inside the coronavirus task force -- and medical experts have repeatedly explained to the President that there is a risk in enthusiastically touting hydroxychloroquine in case the drug doesn't ultimately work to combat the virus. But other aides and outside advisers have sided with Trump, including Navarro, who is still not a formal part of the task force but has wedged himself into the meetings."
