Five Things A Man Isn’t Thinking When He Sees You Naked

by Linda Franklin 
Five Things A Man Isn't Thinking When He Sees You Naked Linda Franklin The Real Cougar WomanWomen worry too much about how their bodies looks.  It even discourages many from having sex because the stress of looking perfect is just too much. If you are focused on your saggy belly – you are not focused on the exciting sensations in the moment.

You’ve got to trust me on this, no man is going to say or even think any of the following:

 

 

  • “Oh, gee, you have so many wrinkles!”
  • “You’d be so pretty if you lost weight.”
  • “Huh — I thought you looked younger with clothes on.”
  • “I like firmer butts and perkier breasts.”
  • “Uh, I gotta go now.”

Whether or not he voices it out loud or conveys it with a smile or melting eyes, here’s what he’s thinking:

                   “Oh wow, did I get lucky! This is going to be wonderful.”

Black Women Happier In Their Own Skin

by Linda Franklin

Black Women Happier In Their Own Skin Linda Franklin The Real Cougar WomanBlack women are happier with their bodies than white women – even if they weigh more, well that’s what a new study says. Two-thirds of overweight black women said they had high self-esteem, compared to only 41 per cent of thin or average-sized white women.  White women could learn a thing or two from this because we are never satisfied with our bodies and go to great lengths to change them.

According to the research commissioned by the Washington Post white women focus too much on what nature has given them, while black women have a ‘deeper’ appreciation of beauty.

Flat chests, skinny midriffs and size zero are boyish.  Black women say, “we’re likely to be built generously and we’re not ashamed to celebrate our curves.”  ‘We develop our own ideas about what it means to look good, rather than relying on magazines and television shows to tell us’.  The survey found, that black women do not aspire to unfeasible skinniness when they lose weight. Instead they look to emulate Queen Latifah, Jennifer Hudson and Michelle Obama, all of whom are muscular and curvy.

Nothing’s perfect – and the survey also brought out this important point.  Black women are more prone to diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure because they are more likely to be obese than white women. 
 
The bottom line is be happy with the skin you’re in.  You have one miraculous body so treat it well and keep it healthy.  Pay attention to how you feel and know that you attract good things from a place of feeling good.

Libido Gives Women A Sense Of Identity

by Linda Franklin

Libido Give Women A Sense of Identity  Linda Franklin The Real Cougar WomanWhen any group of married women get together for a no-holds-barred chat the conversation ultimately turns to sex.  And, one of them, or maybe all of them will admit to at some point being turned off sex.

They might joke about their loss of libido, but the reality is that it can become a corrosive problem that causes crippling guilt in the woman and forces untenable compromises on her relationship.

Loss of libido can strike at any age and the cause can be emotional, psychological or medical.  The emotional triggers include stress, anxiety, family concerns, financial worries and marital break-up.

‘I get into bed and just conk out. My loss of desire is nothing to do with my love for my husband – it’s very much a physical issue”, one woman admits.

Yes, it’s possible to sustain a marriage without sex, but it has a devastating impact on any sense of intimacy. There are a lot of women out there suffering from loss of libido but they won’t admit it, and that’s probably why so many marriages fail in later life. Loss of sex drive is often a reflection of low hormone production, most commonly experienced around the time of perimenopause. Those changes in a woman’s body pack a powerful punch.

A woman’s libido fluctuates. When you’re young, it’s always there. When you have children, it begins to fade — and when you reach 50, unless you’re with a man who makes you feel attractive, it can fade away all together.

Libido helps give women a sense of identity. The stronger and more confident you feel, the stronger your libido. ‘I don’t think a woman’s libido ever dies.  But, a lot does depend on how the man in her life makes her feel”.

The good news is that a high proportion of women do eventually see their libido return. There is no quick fix, however, and, as of  yet, no wonder-drug to cure it. Libido is affected by your general health,  your self-confidence, your body image’.  If you are going through a change you should seek the advice of your physician.  Do your research before you go and be prepared to ask questions.

Plastic Surgey Boosted This Woman’s Career

Plastic Surgery Boosted This Woman's Career by Linda Franklin The Real Cougar WomanA female Wall Street investment banker believes that her career has been boosted by an arsenal of cosmetic surgery.

The anonymous woman – who says that her life motto is A Chorus Line’s ‘Keep the best of you, do the rest of you’ – has undergone ten different operations to achieve a ‘killer body’ and is convinced that the drastic changes are the making of her career.

Speaking with Oprah.com, the 55-year-old said she’d started with liposuction on her thighs at age 24.  That was followed by breast implants – then a nose job: ‘Twice – the first one was botched. I had my ears pinned back. My eyes done. A forehead lift. Filler in my lips. And then lip surgery to repair the damage done by the filler. I had a tummy tuck. A facelift. And I’ve had my teeth veneered.’

She says that the work changed her life.

‘Not only did my romantic options explode, but my career instantly shifted into a higher gear. I was suddenly being courted by senior partners, included in meetings with the CEOs and CFOs of current and prospective clients. 

‘That’s when I began to believe that the surgeries were an investment.’ 

‘Having a killer body gave me a kind of confidence I’d never had. But the way men reacted to me after my first surgery was the way I thought people would treat me if I had suddenly become famous.

‘It was clear the reaction had nothing to do with who I really am. I’m not as vulnerable as I was before my surgeries, and I’m more careful about who I choose to be with. I choose people who love me for me.’

Certainly, her career was already on the upswing in her early 20s when she first went under the knife. She admits that despite ‘becoming very successful as an investment banker at a big Wall Street firm,’ her first operation was very much driven by a self-esteem of ‘zero.’

Looking ahead, this woman says that she has taken a lead from her CFO, who advised her that ‘it’s critical to allocate adequate resources to asset maintenance.’

One reader at Oprah, writes that she was ‘furious’ at being passed over for promotions for being ‘too overweight,’ despite having a ‘mover and shaker’ position at a major company.

While another said, “Face it: we live in a culture, no matter what industry you work in, that values youth and beauty. We can fight that fight but we can’t alter the entire culture in one person’s lifetime.’

So what do you think?  This flies in the face of inner beauty trumps outer beauty and is likely to anger women who campaign for self-esteem and body confidence – as well as those in corporate jobs to whom the news may come as no surprise. 

Looks are a part of the equation, whether we want to accept it or not.
