help-remedies

anonymous asked:

Can you or any of your followers recommend vitamins or natural remedies for fibromyalgia and/or fatigue? X

I don’t really have any answers because I haven’t actually found any natural remedies that help. the only natural remedies I take are multivitamins because of my deficiencies. 

anyone else have any answers? 

Sick Day Tips Masterpost

General Stuff:

  • Drink lots of water and go pee a lot! It’ll help flush out the toxins
  • Make sure to keep your face moisturized. The last thing you want to deal with when your sick is itchy irritated skin 
  • If you have the energy, do some light exercise. It’ll help to invigorate your body
  • Avoid too much screen time D: (sorry that includes tumblr)
  • Try to avoid wearing makeup, or wear as little as possible 

Sore Throat:

  • Drinking Ginger Tea helps a lot :3
  • If you have a clogged/phlegm-y throat, gargling salt water will help (don’t drink it though– you’ll feel even sicker!)
  • Other easy teas are milk and honey or water lemon and honey

Stuffy Nose:

  • Hot showers help get the mucus out
  • As does vapor– fill a bowl with boiling water, then place your head over it with a towel covering your head and try to breathe through your nose. If it gets too hot just take the towel off for a couple of seconds and then continue (this is also great for clearing up the clogged pores in your face! :D)
  • When you go to bed, stack your pillows so that your head is elevated
  • Remember: Eyes, nose, and mouth are connected- so if you have a cold and wear contacts, its best to avoid wearing them if you can. You want to keep those three outlets as free as possible

Upset Stomach:

  • Eating Ajwain seeds or drink ajwain tea helps if you feel nauseous
  • Eating prunes or drinking prune juice helps relieve constipation
  • For eating, remember the B.R.A.T diet: Bananas, rice, applesauce, and toast. Drinking chicken broth or apple juice is also really good for getting some nutrients without having to try to stomach solid food

Headache:

  • The best OTC medicine to take if you have a headache is Aspirin because if it is an average headache it is most likely caused by a lack of blood flow to the brain, so blood thinners are good
  • Drink lots of water! It will do the same as Aspirin 
  • Stay away from screens or straining your eyes at all and get some shut eye in a dark room

// rosehip oil //

This serum changed my skin.

I had combination skin - super oily, so I washed it twice a day, but washing it would create dry patches that would become super irritated.

Buying this changed everything! I use four drops every morning that I work into my skin after washing my face. My face feels firmer, looks brighter, and seems more elastic. Now I can wash my face twice and I ~never~ have dry patches! It has also reduced my red patches I sometimes get on my skin.

It blows my mind that I don’t have combination skin anymore. My skin feels amazing all day, and it’s made me feel so much more confident. For $10, it’s definitely affordable as well.

Little Everyday Ways to Live the Works of Mercy
  • Feed the Hungry: Take a friend or coworker out for a meal and offer to pay. Invite someone over for dinner. Keep granola bars or other small snacks with you in case someone ever needs a quick bite to eat.
  • Give Drink to the Thirsty: Leave your change in the vending machine. Brink extra water to parks or sporting events just in case. Give a friend or coworker a couple of dollars to get a drink and tell them not to pay you back.
  • Clothe the Naked: Let a friend borrow your jacket if they're cold. When you buy new clothes, try to give some of your old clothes away. Always donate instead of throwing away- if the clothes are in good condition.
  • Shelter the Homeless: Invite a friend to stay over if they're having a rough time at home.
  • Visit the Sick: When a friend/classmate/coworker is absent, check on them. If it's a classmate, offer to give them the notes they missed. If a family member is sick, make them soup or offer to bring them their medicine. Call an elderly relative.
  • Visit the Imprisoned: Be kind to someone trapped by a bad reputation. Pray for your state/country's prisoners, especially death row inmates.
  • Bury the Dead: When you visit a graveyard, pull weeds around some of the graves that are not well maintained or pick up trash as you walk. Volunteer to help in any way you can when a loved one passes, or even the loved one of a loved one.
  • Counsel the Doubtful: When someone asks you for advice, listen patiently and be genuinely helpful when you answer them. Wish a friend or coworker good luck before a test/presentation/interview. Pay attention to others and point out the strengths which you admire in them.
  • Instruct the Ignorant: Be patient when someone asks you a question. Read a book to a young relative/neighbor, or help them with homework.
  • Admonish Sinners: Be open and honest when you do something you shouldn't; it's an amazing example for others. When someone asks your opinion about a moral issue, tell the truth.
  • Comfort the Sorrowful: Send a kind message to someone who is having a hard time. Listen when someone needs to vent. Be considerate when you discuss mental health issues. Smile at a stranger who looks sad; tell them to have a nice day.
  • Forgive Offenses/Bear Wrongs Patiently: When someone cuts you off in traffic, pray that they arrive at their destination safely and quickly. Be the first to apologize when you argue with a friend. Be friendly to someone who is rude to you. Help someone to remedy a mistake they have made. Let it go when someone corrects you even though you are right.
  • Pray for the Living and the Dead: Pick people in your life and say a prayer for them! And always pray for the souls in purgatory :)
It’s Only Logical (Prologue)

Okay, so this is a very different thing than what I usually write. It’s basically an AU mashup, and all of our sides are human in this. It’s eventually going to have Logicality and Prinxiety, but not right away. This is just kind of a test balloon to see how you all like it. Hope you enjoy!

Summary: When Logan, a florist with a PhD in botany, decides to hire someone to work the counter in his flower shop, he assumed it would be no big deal. He would get his coffee from his friend Virgil’s shop, as per usual. Ignore his other friend Roman unsuccessfully flirting with Virgil, as per usual. He would continue to live a calm, unruffled life, as per usual. He could never have expected what a disruption one single Dad could make to his neatly ordered life.

Prologue: Flowers and Fripperies

“Logan! Come here a moment, love.”

Logan sighed, but closed the book he was reading and set it aside, resigned to forget reading until his mother allowed him to come back to it. He was tall, for a 6-year-old, and remarkably bright for his age. The word “gifted” was often slung about by the various adults in his life. He really didn’t care what labels they chose to affix to him, just so long as they kept letting him study more things.

Logan sidled up to his mother, who was kneeling in the garden in front of one of her many flower beds, pulling weeds. He really couldn’t understand her obsession with these silly fripperies, but they made her happy ergo, they made him happy by proxy.

“Yes, momma?”

“Do you know what this flower is called, sweetheart?” Logan shrugged at his mother’s question. Flowers had never really interested him before. He knew they were the kind with the white petals and the yellow middles, but that’s about it.

“These are Bellis Perennis, or the common daisy. This flower holds a wealth of medicinal properties despite its unassuming appearance.“ Logan leaned closer, intrigued. His mother smiled a little before continuing. 

“When used in an infusion, it acts as a laxative as well as an expectorant. It is also used as a home remedy to help treat physical disorders such as arthritis and rheumatism. Direct application to the skin through an ointment or poultice can aid in healing wounds. And do you know what it means in the Language of Flowers?”

Logan stared at his mother and wordlessly shook his head again, looking at those silly flowers in a whole new light. Flowers could do all of that? And there was a language?!

“It means innocence and loyal love.”

“There’s a language of flowers?!” Logan’s mother smiled gently at his outburst, pulling him in closer. Logan happily breathed in the unique scent of his favorite person in the world, a mix of her favorite perfume, laundry detergent, moist earth and grass. He loved learning new things, and now she was going to teach him something fascinating, he just knew it.

“Of course! The language of flowers, sometimes called floriography, is a means of cryptological communication through the use or arrangement of flowers. Meaning has been attributed to flowers for thousands of years, and some form of floriography has been practiced in traditional cultures throughout Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. It’s a very ancient practice, and the history of floriography is tied with humanity. Every flower in my garden has a meaning, and I planted them all for a reason.” Logan’s mother explained patiently, her smooth voice soothing him as she gently moved him in front of her to see her garden with new eyes.

Logan contemplated the various blooms and colors in front of him, his brow furrowed in thought. He had dismissed these plants as useless frippery, but with this new information he thought perhaps flowers might be the most fascinating thing he’d ever seen. This was why he loved his mother so very much! She explained things to him, helped him understand new things. He turned to look up at her, a bright smile forming on his lips.

“Will you teach me about them, momma?” Her answering smile was blinding.

“I thought you’d never ask.”


Logan enjoyed mornings the best. The quiet stillness before the world woke up, the taste of his usual cup of coffee, the scent of his plants all around him. His mother had started him on this path a long time ago, and now he was the proud owner of this delightful florist shop and greenhouse. He ruefully smiled at the framed picture of her on the wall as he put an arrangement together, feeling her loss particularly keenly at this moment.

He had worked very hard to get this place, and when he’d finally had the keys in hand, he knew exactly what to name it. Minny’s Garden, named for his mother, was the only place to get any sort of flower or plant in the entire area and he had worked himself to the bone to get it to that point. It had always just been him, but as he’d started to take off he had recently decided to hire some help to man the shop so he could be free to spend more time in the propagation house, which was more his forte anyway. Customer service was not his thing. People were not his thing, to be perfectly frank. It was one of many things he had in common with his best friend, Virgil. 

Most of the time, he felt customers were more hassle than they were worth. But this time? Early in the morning, before the shop opened, before the customers and the phones barged noisily into his life? This time was all his, and he relished it. 

He glanced at the orders for the day, nothing too challenging there, and sipped his coffee. Virgil owned a coffee shop called The Darkest Roast, and it was one of the most popular places in town. Their claim to fame was that each barista would roast you more than the coffee beans. If you wanted sass and sarcasm with your latte, Virgil’s shop was the place to be. Logan grinned wryly at the “Fucking Nerd” scrawled on the cup where his name should be. 

It hadn’t always been a popular concept, but after The Darkest Roast was featured on the Travel Channel that one time, it had really taken off. Honestly, Logan was pretty sure Virgil had only come up with that concept so that he’d have a solid business model that allowed him to be as rude to others as possible and still make money. The coffee wasn’t half bad either. 

Logan moved around the shop on autopilot, getting ready to open for the day. This was routine for him, had been for years.  Virgil and Roman both liked to tease him about being “in a rut” or “boring as fuck” depending on which of them you asked, but he liked routine, he liked knowing what to expect. There was something very comforting in knowing exactly what today, and every subsequent day, would bring. He’d wake up early, put on his usual outfit, get his daily insult and coffee from Verge while pretending not to notice Roman valiantly trying (and failing) to get Virgil to go on a date with him, then he’d come to the shop and go through his daily checklist. In a few minutes, the door would get opened, the phones would start ringing, and his day would begin. 

He unlocked the door, and turned to walk away, but it was already opening, the bell above issuing a cheery sound.

“I’m so sorry, I know you just opened, but I saw from the sign in the window you were hiring…?” Logan tried to bite down the irritation he felt at having his private bubble invaded so quickly, and turned back.

Whatever response he was going to supply died on his lips when his eyes locked with the man standing nervously in the doorway, feeling a jolt of heat run down his spine. Well. This was new.

BATMANRPH PRESENTS: A MIDDLE EASTERN FC DIRECTORY

Though I definitely hope to update this in the future, as it stands right now, this directory features TWO HUNDRED AND THIRTY TWO face claims of Middle Eastern descent. You can use multiple filters to sort, which include Middle Eastern country of origin, secondary ethnic group, gender, age, hair color, and filters for plus size and trans face claims. 

Please understand that many of these face claims do not currently have many resources, or any at all! While I will be very slowly working to help remedy this problem, I cannot fix this all on my own. I encourage you all to use and make resources for more Middle Eastern face claims! However I will ask that, if you answer any FC help questions or make any resources and use this directory as a reference, you please provide some sort of credit! I spent lots of time and energy on this masterlist and it would be very nice to have that recognized some way. And, in that same vein, I’d like to take this opportunity to give a bit shoutout to @sonamhelps and her own list of Middle Eastern FCs as that was largely my starting point with this.

If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions for additions, please don’t hesitate to let me know! This will be an ongoing work in progress with any luck, but I think I’ve done about all I can do without some help, so my inbox is open and I’m turning this over to you all now.

Greek Bronze and Gold Short Sword and Dagger, C. 1450-1300 BC

The daggers and early swords of the Aegean Bronze Age represent some of the most striking artifacts of the period in terms of their opulence, craftsmanship and display of technical virtuosity. Whilst some were used solely for ceremonial use, many were functional instruments of war, attested by the clear developments in form, according to fighting preferences and practices. The short sword, which developed from the dagger, is one of the most interesting innovations of the Bronze Age, often signifying social status in societies in which hierarchy and one-on-one combat were primary concerns. The present dagger and short sword probably originate from Crete, in the locality of the great palaces at Knossos, or from Mycenae. The Minoan and Mycenaean civilizations were renowned for their wealth, richness of culture, technical sophistication, and strong influence across the Greek world for centuries to come. These are the weapons of the fabled heroes of Troy, the great treasures of powerful kings like Agamemnon, who ruled over the kingdom of Mycenae.

Don’t Let Calculus D(e)rive You Mad

I was always one of those people who thought some people were naturally good at math and if I wasn’t one of those people then there was nothing I could do about it. I thought I wasn’t “a math person” and would use that description as an excuse. Is math one of my weaker subjects? Sure but that’s mostly because I let years of bad habits get in the way of my current work. This caught up to me in my first semester of calculus (calc I) at university, where calculus was my worst class. Here’s the thing: if you’re not “a math person” make yourself one. In my second semester of calculus (calc II) I improved my mark by an entire letter grade (something I never thought possible). How? Through hard work and by understanding that I would have to work harder than some people because of my past study habits.


  • Know your pre-calculus well! You will struggle so much if you forget the basics. My prof said not having a good grasp of the basics is the number one reason why students will struggle with calculus. Invest time before/at the beginning of the semester to really review the stuff you learned in high school. (Khan Academy is the best way to review, in my opinion. They have challenge questions you can do for each section. Try a couple of questions for each section. If you can’t answer the question easily, watch the accompanying videos for that section first. Do this for sections you forget or know you struggle with.) Be confident in your basic mental math too, especially under pressure. I wasn’t allowed a calculator on any of my midterms or finals for calc and you don’t want to waste time on easy math that you should know lightning fast anyway.
  • Attend every lecture, especially if you’re even slightly confused. If you’re behind, try not to get even more behind by skipping class (obviously use your own judgement, but don’t skip unless it’s totally necessary). Don’t sit near the back of the class if you know you won’t pay attention.
  • Don’t just sit there and copy down notes. Be attentive in class and follow along with examples the best you can. If you get lost at a certain step in a problem put a star beside it. After class, study and attempt the problem on your own. If you still don’t understand, go to a TA or prof for help. They will be able to provide better help if they can see exactly where you got lost.
  • Keep your notes simple. I would use either blue or black pen for the majority of my notes and use one other colour to emphasize parts of my notes (indicate where I got lost, circle important follows, highlight which section of the textbook the class was at, etc.) Keep your notes neat and leave a gap, if you fall behind during a lecture (just remember to get the notes from someone else later). I also recommend using a grid paper notebook, for when you need to draw graphs.
  • Get a mini notebook! I bought a tiny notebook for cheap and filled it with a (very) condensed version of my notes, throughout the semester. I wrote down common derivatives and integrals, shapes of common graphs, important theorems and formulas, etc. This is especially helpful for calc II, because you’ll have all the necessities from calc I handy.
  • Advice for using Maple for math labs (if this applies to you): Pay attention to tutorials and ask questions. Complete as many assignment questions as you can in the lab/when a TA is present. If you have any other assignment questions to finish up make sure you work on them at least a few days before they’re due, so you have time to ask for help if you need it. Also, Maple can be a stupid program. You could be missing just one number, letter, or symbol and it won’t work. Or you could have it exactly right and it still won’t work (retyping your input in a new worksheet usually helps). To remedy these issues, I would work on assignments with friends and compare what our worksheets looked like. Oh and TAs love if you give your variables funny names or change the colours of your graph, because they’re all nerds (and so are you, so embrace it).
  • Do as many practice problems as you can. Calculus is a class where you learn by doing. Do questions till you understand the concept. If problems are recommended, treat them as if they’re actually due (otherwise you’ll just tell yourself you didn’t have enough time to do any practice problems). My number one mistake was not doing enough practice problems and just assuming I knew how to answer the problem (if you can’t answer the entire question from start to finish, then you don’t actually understand the concept).
  • Please don’t fall behind. Stay on top of things and prioritize what needs to be done (i.e. treat practice problems from the chapter you just learned on equal footing with the lab report you have due – if you treat it as a priority, you will get it done). But, if you do fall really behind, don’t wait until it’s too late to ask for help. Just remember, there’s always something you can do (even if you feel like you don’t know anything and there’s not enough time for any practice problems before your midterm). Identify what you need to learn before you can do anything else (i.e. work on understanding basic integration before you try to do something more complicated like trigonometric substitution) and fit in as many practice questions as you can.
  • Don’t give up! If you don’t understand a concept right away you just have to keep trying! For practice problems, try to find an answer without looking at your notes. If you can’t figure it out from there, look in your lecture notes and textbook for any relevant formulas, examples, or similar questions. Try to answer the problem again. If you get it, be sure to fully complete another practice problem without any outside references. If you can’t figure out an answer then you should seek help from another person!
  • Don’t forget everything you learned at the beginning of the semester – review, review, review! Check out this explanation on the curve of forgetting. If you continually review what you learned, for only short periods of time, you will remember so much more and save yourself time in the end!
  • Utilize the resources available to you. I have a list of online resources at the end of this post, but don’t overlook what’s right in front of you. Go to your prof’s office hours, ask a TA for help, and take advantage of any tutoring or study groups. My uni has a math and science centre where upper year students are always available to help other students with practice problems. If you join a course union, they sometimes offer free tutoring.
  • Study in a productive environment. This varies by person but personally I need a quiet environment, with ideally no noise or only instrumental music, bright/natural lighting, and nothing to distract me (I hide my phone and only have one pen or pencil out). If you like to listen to music when you study, math is one of those subjects where you can listen to music with words.
  • Improve your test-taking skills. (1) On an exam, understanding a concept is no use if it takes you forever answer the question. Do lots of practice problems till you immediately know how to answer any kind of question. Speed can be key on exams. (2) My strategy is to flip through the exam booklet as I get it. I answer the questions I can do easily, first, and leave the really difficult ones till the end. (3) Show all of your work! Don’t lose marks because you didn’t show all of your work. (4) Expect your exams to be challenging and prepare accordingly. Overlearn the material. Prepare specifically for the exam by completing past exams/practice exams in an environment that mimics the test-taking environment.
  • Get every mark you can, because the little marks make a big difference. If you don’t know how to answer a question on an exam, write down any formula or theorem that could relevant. If you try to figure out a solution and know that it’s most likely incorrect, but don’t have enough time/knowledge to find the correct answer, just leave your work there (don’t erase it). There’s always a chance you could be on the right track or nice markers will give you a point or two for trying. Something is always better than nothing.
  • Focus on the applications of calculus (it’ll make the semester a whole lot more interesting)! A physics major won’t necessarily use calculus the same way a bio or chem major might, but that doesn’t mean some calculus isn’t useful for all of those majors to know. I’ve always planned to major in biology and looking ahead at classes I will need calculus for biostatistics and genetics classes. Never tell yourself something isn’t useful because then you’ll never treat it like it’s useful. Also, my prof taught a whole lecture about how calculus could be used to account for all the variables that could affect population if a zombie apocalypse ever happened, so obviously calculus has at least one really important use :)

Resources

A bit of advice: These are called resources for a reason. It’s okay once in a while to use some of the resources to find a full solution for a practice problem, but don’t abuse it. It is so so easy to just look up the answer but you’re only hurting yourself in the end.

  • Desmos (Online graphing calculator - I’ve made it through so far without actually buying a graphing calculator)
  • Khan Academy (Step by step videos and practice questions! You can go your own speed with the videos! My top recommendation!!!)
  • Paul’s Online Math Notes (If your prof doesn’t provide you with decent lecture notes, these ones are great!)
  • Symbolab (They have a calculator for derivatives, integrals, series, etc. and I like the way they split up the steps to solve.)
  • Slader (find your textbook on here and they’ll give you all the solutions to questions!)
  • Textbooks: I used the Single Variable Calculus: Early Transcendentals (8th edition, by James Stewart) and it was awesome. The way it was set up and all the examples really helped me (I just wish I had used it more)
  • This post by @quantumheels is seriously fantastic (and she has lots of good advice for other topics too, one of my favourite blogs)

anonymous asked:

what would the band do if their s/o had v bad period cramps

me right now god kill me

Murdoc Niccals:

  • He knows what periods are. A bloodbath in your uterus. A “last survivor” type of game.
  • Well, unfortunately, you don’t remain unscathed from the war. You’re cramps are terrible and give you headaches, and you feel nauseous as well. You get bloated and your boobs hurt, and… Augh.
  • Well, Mudz has never really had hands-on comforting skills when it comes to that time of the month… The closest he’s got to knowing about it would be that one hooker telling him that she’s tied for the next week (yikes).
  • Murdoc runs to every pharmacy in town, getting you every single medicine so you can stack them, different varieties of chocolate, and a heating pad (if you’re without).
  • If he goes out to buy you pads or tampons, he’s kind of antsy about it (why are you embarassed about it, Mudz? They’re not even for you). He casually would slip the cashier x amount of cash, and dash out of the store.
  • He would massage anything that hurt because he’s kinky like that.

2D:

  • His mom talked to him about it once…? Kind of? Nonetheless, when you tell him that it’s that time of month again, he calls up his mom to ask for help.
  • After the long talk plus frequent note-taking, Stu pacifies you at your side, making sure that you don’t feel like you’re about to puke, or faint, nonetheless.
  • Cuddles definitely make you feel better, he finally concludes. Stu would spoon you, arms wrapped around your waist, hands on your abdomen. If you were moaning in anguish, he would be there. If you were crying in pain, he would still be there.
  • Late night shopping trips? He’s on it. 
  • Stu has an abundance of pain relievers hanging around in the bathroom cabinet for his frequent migraines, so you always have something like Midol or Ibuprofen hanging around tip: don’t ever use tylenol for this type of situation. it doesn’t work on menstrual cramps. midol has some of the same components as ibuprofen, so you’re better off not wasting time. i take midol.
  • When you guys go out, he always has an extra sweatshirt or jacket with him just in case you bleed through your clothes.
  • When he has to buy period products for you, he doesn’t really care like how Murdoc would. It’s not something to be embarrassed by, and if girls can do it, he can, too!

Noodle:

  • She knows what it feels like to have the fist of Mother Nature rip into your vagina. Trust me.
  • She has lots of herbal remedies to help you out, and she recommends lots of things to help ease the pain, like hot water bottles and a good ol’ pillow in between the legs.
  • Exercising helps with period pain as well, so Noodle will go out and take a walk with you if you’re feeling up to it.
  • You two probably get your period at around the same time, so you both comfort each other.
  • Fluffy blankets and chocolate? Heck yeah, man. Massages in sore areas? You’re darn right that’s gonna happen.
  • You and Noodle go to the drug store to get a bunch of different lady products to test out. You use statistics and bar graphs and everything to prove which product works the best, whether it be tampon or medicine related.

Russel Hobbs:

  • He’s pretty chill about periods. I mean, most guys seem freaked about them, but he’s never cared in his life. If he gets bled on by accident? Oh well, it’s just a pair of pants.
  • You need anything like pads or tampons in the middle of the night? Just give him 10 minutes to fully wake up. He’ll go out at 2am while you sit miserably on the toilet, bleeding out, as he picks out exactly what you need (plus a bouquet of flowers for good measure). It’s fun being female.
  • Russ would supply you with lots of water and hot compresses, as well as healthy snacks like tiny veggie trays and nice soups.
  • He holds your hand and lets you lay on him if you get to the point of absolute suffering.
  • He’ll make sure you get enough rest, as well. Sleeping helps ease the pain.

shoutout to everybody that bleeds from time to time

When Doves Cry (NSFW)

Steve Harrington/Reader !!VERY!! NSFW; NC-17.
Word Count:

Summary: After a talk with your sister, you feel more than a little bit self-conscious of the fact that you’re still a virgin at nineteen years old, so you enlist your best friend. PWP – or, very little plot, anyway.

Includes: oral (M+F), loss of virginity, multiple orgasms, extended foreplay

A/N: im so sorry joe keery. im so so so so so sorry. also, im sorry baby jesus. This is the first full-blown erotica I’ve written in years…probably since I actually lost my virginity lmao. So sorry for being a bit rusty. PLEASE give me feedback on how I can improve. Thank you. Also, I envision reader being around 5′3-4, chubby, with longish hair, but just ignore those slight descriptors, if they don’t match you. Requests are OPEN here and on AO3, under the same username.


You look Steve in the eye, a surge of nerves bursting through you. “Steve, I have a question for you.”

“Okay, shoot. What’s up?”

“You know I’m…inexperienced, right?”

His brow furrows. “Right?”

“Will you…help remedy that issue for me?”

He sputters. “Are…are you asking me to –”

“I want you to take my virginity, Steve. Please. I trust you more than I trust anyone else on the planet.”

The older male just stares at you, blank-faced. After a moment of his silence, you feel insecurity rush through your veins. Biting your lips, you avoid his gaze. “You…you don’t have to, if you don’t feel comfortable. I just feel like I’m too old to still be a virgin. My sister keeps telling me that I’m going to die alone, if I don’t, you know, know what I’m doing and –”

“I’ll do it, if you really want me to.”

Your eyes widen. “Are you sure?”

“Only if you are.”

Foodie Friday: Cough Banishment Tea

Ingredients:
-1 tbsp Chamomile
-1 tbsp Mullein
-1 tbsp Peppermint
-½ tsp Ginger
-½ tsp lavender
-½ tsp cinnamon (or a stick, if you love cinnamon)

1) Steep in near-boiling water for 3-5 minutes. Strain, then sweeten (if desired) and sip!

Magical Ingredient!

It’s that season again… coughs, colds, and flu are back in style, which means that many are seeking the comfort of teas or other warm drinks to alleviate the symptoms. There are plenty of herbal teas on the market, from throat coats to classic “sweet dreams” blends. Where I go to pick up my herbs, “The Secret Garden” in downtown San Luis, there is an herbal tea blend that sells quick called “Tea K. O,” which many look to use for better sleep as well as some relief from cold and flu symptoms.

Of course, this doesn’t stop me from making the occasional foray into blending my own herbal teas using my culinary herb collection. For many, chamomile is a mainstay for good sleep, and lavender is a witch’s staple. But what definitely has a bit of a more witchy feel to it, in my opinion, is mullein.

This plant grows wild in the Mediterranean, and in parts of North America it has become a naturalized flower. For some, it is more like a weed, while others intentionally incorporate it into their gardens for its lovely yellow flowers and tall stems. Its usefulness in herbal medicine and magic, like many other herbs, is a long-standing tradition - much of which had been lost to time due to the plant’s easy access. For medicine, mullein is often taken internally either as a tea or smoked as a remedy for chronic respiratory tract infections or for relieving the symptoms of cough or cold, and can be consumed to help treat the symptoms of diarrhea. As an external treatment, mullein has been known to be used as an herbal remedy to help with hemorrhoids. A fitting ingredient for Friday the 13th, mullein’s usefulness in magic is most often linked to divination and magic relating to the dead or the mind. It’s frequently used in tandem with or as a substitute for graveyard dirt in many recipes such as goofer dust, and in a few Native American traditions, the plant was used to help assist with bringing one’s mind back if it was believed to be lost. Mullein can be used in incense (or the stalk burned as a candle) for divination, spirit work, or as a means by which to ward away and banish harmful spirits from the home. It is important to note that if using dried mullein in the home, be careful when burning or using as a tea. Strain with cloth to prevent the hairs from causing irritation in the mouth and throat. If burning, I would recommend making it into cone incense to avoid any irritation from airborn hairs. (Many sources say that mullein can be smoked in herbal cigarettes. If that is your thing, be sure to use filters to prevent inhaling the hairs.) All in all, this little weed is a great tool for coughs and colds, and in magic has a strong association with death and divination. Fitting for the season on both accounts. So when crafting your Samhain sachets or incense powders, consider making use of the humble mullein! May all your meals be blessed! )O(

anonymous asked:

Hello! Saw the requests were open and decided to request. RFA + V & Saeran react to an MC who has had back surgery and suffers from pain plus is self conscious about it. I had surgery for scoliosis and honestly am super self conscious about the fact that I have a long scar down my back and avoid wearing anything that shows it. Thanks in advance!

So sorry to hear. We hope you feel better soon, and hope these brighten your day a little. :) 


Zen:

  • It came up when he suggested you guys go to the beach
  • You were avoiding it for awhile
  • He finally got annoyed because he knew were hiding something
  • You blurted out about your surgery and the scar and how you were self conscious
  • He understood the feeling
  • He didn’t want you to give up fun things in life because of it
  • So he does some research and helps you to the degree you can handle
  • He’ll help pick a swimsuit that covers your scar
  • Looks up remedies that help with the pain
  • Huge support to you on good and bad days

Yoosung:

  • He planned to take you to an amusement part as a surprise date
  • You felt really bad, but you had to tell him you couldn’t ride most of the rides there
  • Your back probably wouldn’t be able to handle it well
  • He was beating himself up for not knowing about your back problem and surgery
  • You told him it was fine since you had been silent up until then
  • He tries to make it up to you and does whatever you can do in the park
  • Even it’s just playing those arcade games
  • He wins you a huge stuffed puppy
  • “If you’re in pain and I’m not there, you can squeeze this for comfort!”

Jaehee:

  • You two liked to jog in the park every once in awhile together
  • She noticed you’d start out strong, but slowly lag behind
  • She watched you for a few weeks, and finally confronted you about it
  • She said she figured out you had scoliosis from your symptoms
  • She had a mild case due to desk work all those years
  • That’s when you told her about your surgery and the pain that happens every once in awhile
  • She’s patient and tells you when you need a break, even when you want to keep going
  • She buys you heating pads for when the pain gets really bad
  • Also has a bunch of tips and remedies memorized

Jumin:

  • You’re wearing a big t-shirt around the house
  • It kinda sags in the back a bit, exposing some of your scar
  • Jumin happens to notice and freaks out
  • He asks what happened and how’d you get it
  • He’s just super worried
  • You explain your condition, and he calms down a lot
  • But you can bet he’s already researching on how to care for you
  • He has the best doctors do check ups on you and help you through physical therapy
  • He even bought you one of those massage chairs that was safe enough to use for when you got a bit better
  • Really calm when you get pain in your back, and does whatever he can to help


Seven:

  • You hadn’t told him anything about it
  • And you two usually have those play fights that are mostly tickling and ends up with him “throwing” you onto the couch
  • Only this time, when he picked you up, you started screaming in pain
  • He put you down and panicked
  • He thought he hurt you and was feeling really guilty
  • Once the pain died down, you explained  that it really wasn’t his fault
  • You explained about your surgery and back problems
  • His over-protective mode activates
  • It’s really hard for you to do ANYTHING as he’s always swooping in to help
  • You eventually find a balance, but he’s still careful with you

Saeran:

  • He’s very observant
  • He can tell when you’re in pain and can tell when you’re self-conscious
  • Very blunt when he asks if something is wrong
  • You explain about your back
  • He helps you on the rough days, but he’s also pushes you to get help
  • Really supportive of you getting physical therapy and strengthening your back
  • He sympathizes with you when you talk about your scar
  • His tattoo is a scar of his own
  • You both comfort each other in this aspect

V:

  • He can’t see, so you weren’t as worried about your scar
  • One day, when you’re really tense, you ask him to rub your back
  • His fingers brush across your scar, and he asks you about it
  • You’re a little embarrassed but you explain the whole situation
  • He doesn’t act any different
  • He doesn’t make a big deal about it
  • But you can bet he still pampers you on bad days
  • You both continue living your life around his blindness and your back pain
  • Giving support to each other just comes so naturally 

Check out our other headcanons~ Masterlist

sushi headcanons

john: only eats stuff that’s completely cooked. tempura shrimp, california rolls, etc. roxy keeps calling him a wuss. he orders one of those rolls that’s a take on philly cheesesteaks/cheeseburgers and grins at the face she makes. that’s not real sushi, john, what the fuck? oh really roxy? i thought sushi was just the rice part! he eats 3 pieces of it at once. he is utterly, incredibly sick later.

rose: only eats nigiri. in japan they don’t usually eat rolls, she informs dave as he goes to town on a hand roll. most of the rolls you can order here were made for dumb westerners who couldn’t comprehend the concept of raw fish by itself. dumb westerner this, dave retorts, and nearly chokes on his hand roll. rose raises her eyebrows and grins as she daintily dabs wasabi between the fish and the rice on her nigiri. 

dave: orders hand rolls pretty much exclusively and refers to them as his fishcream cones. has a variety. arranges them in order of how much he likes them. eats a bite out of one, then sets it down and takes a bite out of another. then sets it down and takes a bite out of another. dirk makes a pained noise. dave sets it down and takes a bite out of another.

jade: orders sashimi. loves the fish but her doggy side hates the rice! she eats twice as much as everybody else and seems ready for more. no wasabi, no ginger. all fish all the time. she keeps talking with pieces of fish hanging out of her mouth. everyone is vaguely horrified. 

jane: does this the professional way! orders omakase and scoffs as everybody else just orders rolls. as a result she gets the objective best sushi and takes her time savoring every piece. only uses the wasabi and soy that the chef includes with the sushi. keeps commenting aloud about how glad she is that she did it this way. roxy elbows her and says jane is welcome to a piece of her spicy tuna if she wants. jane quietly accepts. 

roxy: everything is spicy. spicy tuna rolls. spicy scallop hand rolls. spicy salmon rolls. spicy tuna nigiri. if it’s a roll with sriracha sauce in it she’s ordering it. if it has jalepenos or any kind of spicy pepper on it, she’s ordering it. her greatest achievement is eating the entirety of the sushi place’s challenge too-hot-to-handle roll and not having to pay for her meal. eats way too much and spends the next hour and a half groaning about how full she is.

dirk: is not sure he can trust uncooked fish. look, ok, he knows that people used to eat this all the time, but fish were pretty toxic on earth in 2425, ok, and he had to cook them to get the toxins out. makes a lot of noise about how he’s not sure fish and cream cheese ought to go together. eventually appeased. is DELIGHTED when roxy helps him find a roll that says “citrus” and there are tiny paper-thin lemon/orange slices in it. eats too much but pretends to be fine even though jake keeps grinning and poking his stomach.

jake: goes immediately to the weirdest rolls and orders them. splits a philly cheesesteak roll with john. eats sea urchin and loves it. does a quail egg shot, then does another one, and another one. he fucking loves those things. orders a gigantic variety of nigiri so he can sample as many kinds of fish as he can and loves them all. announces every one is his favorite after he tries it. in addition, eats a shitload of edamame.

karkat: tries some spicy rolls and, without admitting that they are too much for him, orders something super mild immediately afterward. dave knows and elbows him. karkat demands an elbow toll of one of dave’s hand rolls, and dave acquiesces – but it’s one of the ones he’s already had a bite of. karkat gives dave a dirty look. avoids crab rolls, even with dave’s assertion that none of them use real crab. makes a lot of noise about how humans must have a deathwish if they’re eating raw fish all the fucking time. eats too much.

terezi: asks which sushi is the MOST R3D and then orders whatever is pointed out to her. ends up with a bunch of tuna and spicy tuna and R3D SN4PP3R even though she’s told it’s not very red. makes loud slurping noises as she swallows the fish. makes the chef bring her a bottle of sriracha and starts just dumping it into her mouth. starts scraping red tobiko off other people’s rolls and into her mouth. john finally loses it and asks if they can just buy a stupid thing of tobiko so she stops being stupid. terezi, nose deep in the tobiko the instant it’s brought to the table, is appeased.

kanaya: joins jane in the omakase because if anybody ought to know what’s good here, it’s the chef. is the perfect model of etiquette. read up on how to properly eat sushi before she came here. attempts to say “arigato gozaimasu” when the chef gives her sushi. doesn’t rub her chopsticks together because the internet said it was rude and nearly gets a splinter, which rose offers to help her remedy. wow rose get a room, dave drawls as kanaya turns brilliant green. eats exactly the right amount and sighs loudly when karkat grumbles about how full he is afterward.

callie: orders sashimi only with jade, but gets dozens of different kinds of fish as opposed to jade sticking to her favorites. stacks them and mixes them like lunchables. informs everyone else on what combinations are the best. mournful that there isn’t much blood in the fish, but enjoys herself anyway. when she’s informed she can finish her meaty fishflesh meal with mochi ice cream and tempura fried oreos, her eyes light up and everyone realizes they aren’t getting out of there for another hour.

Kim Seokjin, a Pure Blood

Jin is the from a wealthy aristocratic family and has an impressive career as a doctor. Ever since he was young he knew there was something off about him, he wasn’t quite like the others. When it came to blood, he was never controlled by it like the other Vampires, he didn’t even crave blood on the full moon. Over the years he retained that quality, which allowed him to fit into society much easier than he otherwise would. After graduating college he went on to be a surgeon and hematologist. Soon he became known as one of the best doctors in his specialty. Like his father once did, he manages a vampire-human university. Jin grew up with Namjoon, Yoongi, Hoseok, Jimin, Taehyung and a Jungkook as they all attended the same school. Even though they were all separated by a few years a strong bond was built through their many years with each other. Feeding is something Jin goes into slowly with a lot of thought, being that he studies blood, he is fascinated by the way it works and what makes it so unique. 

Empathy. Jin has the ability to interpret and replicate the emotions, moods, and temperaments of others without having to read apparent symptoms, allowing him to understand and discover if one emotion is hiding another. He can attack you in a personal and emotional way since he knows exactly what emotion is flowing through you and can use this knowledge any way he pleases.

Healing energy. He can manipulate healing energy and heal his inflicted bite wounds as well.

Hypnosis/Neuro-Linguistic Programming. He is able to affect or directly influence your mind to his commands with some convincing.

Min Yoongi, a Pure Blood:

Yoongi grew up in a strict household, for a while his life consisted of going to school and practically living at the hospital. His rare condition disables him from consuming any type of human blood. If he happens to ingest even a small amount he can get sick and feeble. Blood from any average donor can  leave him with intense migraines for days at a time along with dramatic drops in energy and strength. Ever since he was young he was constantly being stuck with needles and examined by countless doctor in hopes that they could help him, but none of their efforts were permanent. As soon as Jin graduated his university he begged Yoongis doctors to let him take him as a patient. Through Jins studies he found an ancient remedy to help him live more comfortably, vampire blood, more specifically Jimin’s blood. It’s well known that giving Vampire blood to an ill Vampires can help cure many different sicknesses if consumed correctly. He hasn’t been able to find a cure closer than Jimin and you. As far as symptoms after being bitten, there’s a chance you’ll suffer from some of the symptoms he has, he’ll even link to your consciousness by accident if he’s not paying attention. For Yoongi, Feeding is an intimate gesture depending on the vessel and feeding cycle. He rather feed in a more private situation, for him, the more personal the feeding the better.

Dream manipulation - He has to ability to create, shape, enter and manipulate the dreams of oneself and others, including modifying, suppressing, fabricating, influencing, manifesting, sensing, and observing dreams as well as nightmares, daydreams, etc. He can produce and modify dreams, bestow nightmares or lucid dreaming, entrap people in REM sleep, and nurse emotional health.

Mind Link - Imprinting, Mental Link, Psychic Link, and Telepathic Connection/Link. He has the power to link minds with anyone through a close bond.

Hypnotic eyes - He can put others in a suggestive trance upon eye contact, the effect may take a few minutes to work or happen instantly. While in the trance, the person becomes highly pliant to his will.

Jung Hoseok, a Pure Blood:

Hoseok is one of the more peculiar vampire breeds; he seems like sunshine and flowers until he starts feening for blood. Hoseok lived a normal childhood, unlike most of his peers at the university he didn’t live in an all vampire community, he went to a human school. As a Vampire, for him, the mere thought of sinking his fangs into tender flesh gets him worked up. It’s addictive. He is prone to over feeding due to needing large sums of blood to satisfy his hunger. When Hoseok hasn’t had much blood he behaves aggressively, he doesn’t care who you are as long as your blood smells good he’s drinking. When Jin needed her to give blood for the first time he happily volunteered, having a donor that’s never been fed from only heightened his need to be the first. His breed has traits developed during childhood when feeding. If he’s feeding he’s most likely touching you somewhere, whether it be your arms, waist, hair, anything he could get his hands on; it was just natural to do that. The toxins released when feeding leaves people with munchausen syndrome. You might start convincing yourself that your sick physically, mentally, etc but it doesn’t last for more than a few days. But in exchange for a bit of your sanity, he does have the ability to heal you physically during the feeding. Feeding is a sporadic event for him, he does it when he feels like it and many times the vessel isn’t even sure what happened after.

Empathy - also called Empathic Perception/Sense. The user can fully interpret and replicate the emotions, moods, and temperaments of others without reading apparent symptoms, allowing them to understand introverts or discover one emotion is actually hiding another. They can attack someone in a personal and emotional way since they know exactly what emotion is flowing through themselves and can use this knowledge to play against them.

Healing energy - The user can manipulate healing energy, capable of restoring anything to its optimal health.

Kim Namjoon, a Pure Blood:

Now Namjoon seems to have the most fun being a Vampire; I say that because he uses his abilities more than anyone else. His special abilities mainly come from his mother, who has been a phycologist for troubled Vampires and donors for many years before he was born. Her profession led her to make Namjoon study hard, not that she had to force him. As his abilities got stronger he was able to tap into others conscious with ease. As invasive as it sounds he had no shame doing it, he claims it was for research or something like that but nobody buys that. His ability to mess with your mind doesn’t go unpunished; the more he uses it, the least control he has over it. It’s not permanent but for a while he won’t be able to change control it. Namjoon is known to assert his dominance in every situation he sees fit, he knows what he knows and if you wanna call it pride so be it. It’s now a pretty well known fact that Y/N has the best blood they’ve ever encountered, that makes him just as curious as everyone else. After being bitten by him it’s not likely you’ll have any symptoms after. Feeding is enjoyable for him and the vessel, if you like not being able to control yourself then he’s the Vampire for you. During feeding he can immobilize your movements and coax you into a compliant mindset, pushing you until you’re begging for more.

Mind Control - also Brainwashing, Manipulative Hypnosis, Mental Domination, Telepathic Manipulation. User can control the minds of others with targets being completely subject to their mental control. If the victims were placed into a semi-conscious state, they may not have any recollection of the previous actions that they performed while under its effect.

Telepathy - The ability to read the thoughts of, or to mentally communicate with others.

Park Jimin, a Hybrid:

Jimin is one of the most sought after kind of Vampires because of his background. His mother has love manipulation and his father has mind control manipulation, etc. He is affected by the crescent moon rather than the full moon because of his mother. “The lovers of blood” is what they call vampires like her, and he inherited more qualities from than his father. Just like the others, he releases a kind of venom when he bites, his mimics a kind of love potion. If you’re bitten during his height of feeding you will most likely intensely crave to touch, love and give blood without any sort of context. Jimin is very aware of himself and tries to lay low so he doesn’t do something he’ll regret. He does take certain medicine to calm his natural urges but if he misses one it’s over. SIf he’s under the influence of the moon and he finds you suitable he’ll do whatever it takes to drink from you, seduction is normally the go to for him; and it always works. After it’s all said and done a wave of guilt washes over him, as if he had just violated something sacred. You, on the other hand, will feel just like he did. It was close to lust but not as physical. Feeding is more pleasurable for him than anything, it’s a blurred expression of hunger, greed, love that he doesn’t normally get to act on the way he really wants.

Love Manipulation - also called Affection Control, Affection Manipulation, Amokinesis. He senses and manipulates all aspects of love, of himself, creatures. Whether by increasing, decreasing, causing or otherwise channeling love, even turning the emotional energy to a physical level.

Kim Taehyung, a Hybrid:

Taehyung’s mother doesn’t have any abilities, aside from being a Vampire; so, he inherited most of his fathers mannerisms and abilities. Being a younger Vampire, he does tend to ‘play’ with his food. Being playful is what he’s most guilty for when it comes to feeding, the others were always suspicious of Tae; he was a bit of a trouble maker. He and Jungkook play pranks, do mischievous things together; it resulted in them being scolded my Jin or whichever Hyung could catch them first. When Tae was younger he loved the way people bent to his will, depending on how he spoke. He realized he was an early bloomer in discovering his abilities, he had the power to convince and control others with his voice. It comes in handy when getting his way with vessels like you. You’d have to experience his feeding first hand to understand it; he’s childish but he can flip in a second. When Feeding it’s important he doesn’t get distracted by the things around him(he feeds in front of others often), but if he does become distracted he gets frustrated and a bit forceful with whoever he’s feeding from.

Autohypnosis - He can compel you by speaking, you are unable to disobey; the seemingly cogent commandment is far too compelling. During the full moon he can even persuade you into hurting/killing yourself or even flip around sense of logic.

Jeon Jungkook, Part Human Hybrid:

Jungkook was born into a very powerful family that has a lot of influence in the Vampire community and he is set to be the president of his fathers empire. His parents are concerned about him but they’re also at ease knowing he is in the capable hands of Seokjin. Jungkook is the only Vampire in the university that is part human but seems genetically perfect(his mother is half human, making him ¼ human). The complicated part about mixing humans and Vampires is that the offspring is prone to genetic oddities and many other problems; because of that he is rarely able to feed direct from the source. There is a stigma around part human hybrids; some say they’re psychotic or savages but Jungkook has never been quite like that. Sadly, he is constantly torn between his human and Vampire side, never really knowing how to force the two into harmony. Jin created a medicine for his condition and he take gets two injections a month to dull the headaches and take away any taste for human blood. The symptoms he get’s from the medicine can very between him wanting human blood to despising it, so it’s really a gamble with him. Jungkook is very manipulative, he can have you willing to let him feed in seconds if he really wanted to. But Jin would never allow it. Jungkook has the tendency go over board. Over drinking is normal for his age but he can drink from until there’s none left and not even notice. Since he’s never had the chance to do it freely, feeding is merely one of his fantasies. He is hoping one day he could make those thought a reality with you…

Subconscious manipulation - He can manipulate everything hidden inside him or others subconscious, including ideas, wishes or desires, traumatic memories, painful emotions, etc. This allows him to manipulate the hidden aspects of the mind in various ways, for example arrange memories as one desires, awaken secrets and information hidden deep in the subconscious, and give shape to emotions or thoughts hidden inside the mind. He can erase what resides in the subconscious (like the ability to choose right from wrong) and leave only what they deem “important” making them very strong or very dangerous.

The funny thing is that the sight of a cock lock and the idea of male chastity, would make even the most open minded vanilla person cringe. Most view this concept as a twisted fetish, very one sided by way of benefits for a woman, and as being cruel to endure on a man’s part.

However, what many fail to see is that Mother Nature by default causes an imbalance in relationships between a man and a woman. Women are at a disadvantage, and by design the male sex libido prevents a man from fully investing in a relationship to the extent a woman does. He is unable to do so, because he requires a part of himself to be reserved for his own sexual needs and his impulsive self gratification cycle. This cycle in itself, comes with chemical changes in the body, of which cause a diminished level of investment on his part.

If more vanilla people knew this, women would be running out and buying cock locks like they did back when they lost their minds over 50 Shades of Grey. Vanilla men don’t want women to catch on to this, as their relationships would cause them to divorce their dicks or risk divorcing their wives.

How does male chastity benefit an everyday normal relationship outside of sexual? The biggest benefit is the side effects and resulting symptoms of abstinence from masturbation, that lend themselves as positives to the relationship.
Men may not see these as positive benefits, but the fact that it provides for true will power and it refines a man’s behavioral psyche…

You see, the process of masturbation involves a mental compulsion, that prompts a physical sexual impulsiveness… It’s actually a very primal behavior and equivalent to the level of an animalistic mentality. Altering the course of this cycle produces more refined and sophisticated human behaviors. It allows for a transferring of resources to the emotional part of the brain, and it prompts a man to seek out fulfillment on a deeper level. It essentially bypasses the dick drain distraction, and allows for the brain to become more aware of its surroundings. It’s almost like turning down the blaring stereo music, and finally realizing that hey ‘listen, I hear birds chirping outside!’… A sound that went unrecognized when the self serving dick rock concert played on infinite repeat lol…

The biggest benefactor that not many people realize?

Male masturbation creates an emotional barrier in relationships and allows a man to remain somewhat disconnected in a very self sufficient and self serving way. Chastity helps remove this barrier and causes a man to have a deeply rooted dependency for his spouse. With masturbation, a man’s emotional offerings are at a level that’s considered sufficient for a male, but insufficient on a female level. Chastity ups a man’s offerings to the level a female requires in order to feel ultimate fulfillment. The very reason why women are known as naggers, always wanting more… 'It’s never good enough’ is because of the masturbation barrier… If this was not a factor, women would not be associated with these undesirable traits because we’d be much more content. Women wouldn’t feel the need to 'fight for their food’ and look to secure their emotional meals.

These female feedings do not exclude sex! Chastity forces a man to become truly invested in her pleasures. Men are naturally known to be pleasers in bed… Many men I’ve known have had the mentality 'I’ll make you come and when you’re done I’ll come’… That’s a considerate male… At best… Understand that this mentality is STILL SELF SERVING on a man’s part! He requires this to stroke his ego. A man needs to feel as though he’s taken care of business, and then gotten his too by getting physical gratification. Once again, it’s double feedings for his needs, and most often she’s faking the orgasms to help stroke him even more. Our emotional ego is tied into our sexual one, whether we’re having sex or saying 'I love you’ our core needs are being nurtured. This is why a woman is at a disadvantage as she loses out overall.

Masturbation in a relationship is selfish and self serving on a man’s part… Chastity allows for balance and is a selfless act that a man should be willing to embrace if he truly loves his spouse and wants her to find ultimate fulfillment and happiness. When it comes to a woman’s emotional needs, her cup is never full if masturbation is a factor. Chastity increases a man’s tolerance and it neutralizes his male aggressiveness… It also satisfies a woman to the extent that it neutralizes her excessive needs and the feeling that she has to chase down her emotional and sexual meals… There would be a lot more successful relationships and happier couples if the masturbation barrier didn’t exist.

Think about this for a moment…

Sex means the most to a man (as it ties to his emotional ego) and emotional fulfillment means the most to a woman (as it ties to her sexuality) … As a man, Imagine what it would be like if your sex life lacked fulfillment? Your spouse could never quite deliver the quality of sex that makes you feel content… And it was always just ok and sufficient cause there’s no other option… But deep down you know it could be better? This is the exact situation a woman encounters in a relationship, when it comes to her emotional needs. Her emotional fulfillment threshold is at a female level, yet his offerings are limited to the male threshold that he himself finds sufficient… And it’s due to the energy he must reserve for the personal relationship he has with his penis. Men always have this expectation that it’s a woman’s duty to deliver the goods and take care of a man’s needs, if she expects him to stay invested and not stray… Yet a woman is expected to stay equally invested regardless of the level of emotional fulfillment….

He still gets to have his self serving sexual gratification cycle on the side and offer only the left over energy and resources available… While she remains fully invested at all times. The reality is even if a woman engages in masturbation, it does not have the same chemical effects to her female brain and body, and she is able to maintain full investment in the relationship.

Kind of a double standard don’t you think? If a man has those expectations of a woman, he should be willing to hand over all of his sexual/emotional energy and invest it ALL into the relationship. Lastly, the reason why men are viewed as more independent than women is because they have the ability to fully satisfy their most primary need (being sex) all on their own. The idea that they need not depend on a woman for the one thing they cannot live without.

Women on the other hand, are incapable of serving their most primary need (being emotional) without the help of their male spouse. He holds the key to her ultimate fulfillment, and he also holds the key to his own ultimate fulfillment. This is why men have the upper hand as being the more dominant sex. Yes, women are a male weakness… But it’s a desire not a need. Chastity equalizes that all…. As long as men have access to masturbation, they never truly have both feet invested in a relationship and to the point of dependency. Chastity evens out the playing field and allows for a fair game with no one side having an upper advantage over the other.

In a man’s defense, he cannot be faulted for this… As he himself has no control over the male sex brains compulsions and resulting impulsive behaviors. However, a man does have control over the choices he makes to help bypass and remedy this cycle. Making the ultimate sacrifice that allows him to become fully invested in the relationship.

Male chastity is not one sided and 'cruel’… it’s an added rider that one smart woman places on the relationship, and one selfless man willingly accepts, that helps make for two equal sides. It teaches a man how to seek out and enjoy sexual fulfillment from his spouse and in other forms. Male chastity is the key (and lock) to the ultimate relationship.

Falling (Carlos de Vil x Reader)

Requested by @fuckkoffcourtney 
Prompt:  hi!! could you write a carlos deville from descendants x reader where reader lives on auradon and is a teaching assistant in remedial goodness 101 and she starts to fall for carlos as he does for her? thanks sm!

You would walk into the room where you have been helping in the remedial godness 101 class for the kids Ben invited from the Isle. 

Sure you agreed with your friend Ben that it would be a cool idea, but you had no idea how big of an impact it would have made on your friend group. 

“Y/N, are you okay?” You hear a voice say 

You would snap out of your thoughts and look up at whoever had asked you the question to see the one and only Carlos De Vil. You would admit, he has sort of grown on you. but you didn’t want to say anything until you were sure that he would be staying. Besides, (insert mother here), your mother wouldn’t be too fond of him, he was raised by villains, therefore he will turn out just like them. 

“Yeah, I’m fine Carlos. Thanks for asking. It’s just been a very long day.” You say, rubbing your temples 

“If you want, you can join me and Dude for a walk through the forest.” He says, rubbing the back of his neck 

You smile and look back at the clock and nod, mentally thinking about your schedule. 

“I think I could squeeze that into my schedule. I don’t have to meet with Ben until 5. I got a few hours.” You say, stacking your papers 

“Sweet.” He says 

You laugh as you stand up and put your books and papers in your bag, slinging it across your shoulder, walking out of the room with Carlos right next to you. 

“How did you even get caught up with helping in this class?” He asks 

“Let’s just say Ben is a very thoughtful friend.” You say with a laugh 

“He just volunteered you?” He asks, shock in his voice 

“When you’ve known each other for basically you’re whole lives, he doesn’t even ask me. He knows I’ll most likely do it.” You say with a smile 

“Well, it’s pretty cool having you help teach that class. I don’t know if we would have survived that class if it wasn’t for you.” He says 

You laugh and look at him with a little surprise on your face. 

“Of course you guys could have.” You says “Fairy Godmother is a very good teacher for goodness.” 

“That’s only because she doesn’t know anything else.” He says 

“True.” You say with a laugh 

He smiles as you two continue to walk through the woods in silence, an occasional bark from Dude. 

“How are you guys liking Auradon anyway?” You asks 

“It’s actually a lot cooler than we all thought. Other than all of the… what’s the right word?” He says 

“Rules?” You ask 

“That’s one thing, but not what I was getting at. I want to be nice but all of the prince and princesses everywhere are just so different from the isle.” He says 

“Yeah. Back at the isle is just the kids of our biggest villains who have tried to take our parents down.” You say 

“Exactly.” He says 

“Well I’m glad you’re enjoying it. Cause in my opinion, I think Mal was a good thing that happened to Ben.” You say 

“You weren’t upset that he broke up with Audrey?” He asks, shock lacing his voice 

“Not at all. Me and Audrey had our differences. I thought she was too controlling over Ben.” You say 

“That would make sense. You have been part of his life longer than she was.” He says 

You laugh and nod, looking down at the watch you always wore, and purse your lips. 

“I have to go. I have to meet Ben in about 30 minutes. Talk to you tomorrow?” You say 

“Yeah, of course.” He says, a smile on his face 

-~-

You would be looking at the papers Fairy Godmother gave you to go over for the next lesson in Remedial Goodness 101. You groan in frustration as you waited in the office, waiting for Ben, who was now 15 minutes late to his own meeting that HE planned. 

“Sorry that I’m late Y/N. Got distracted.” Ben says as he hurries in, shutting the door behind him 

“Date with Mal?” You ask, not looking up 

“Yeah. How is Remedial Goodness 101 going with them? I hope that it wasn’t too much for you.” He says as he sits across from you, handing you some water 

You finally look up from the papers as you put them back in your bag, taking the water from his hand and take a sip. 

“I want to say it’s going good. I’ve seen major improvement in them from when they first came to Auradon.” You say 

“That’s a plus. Do you think you are still needed?” He asks 

You shrug and lean back in your chair, looking at him. 

“Doesn’t matter to me. I don’t have a class that period, I’m usually in the library studying.” You say 

“You sure? There’s not a certain somebody in there.” He says 

You look at him, confusion then shock on your face and she mentally face palm. 

“What has Mal told you?” You ask 

“That she’s noticed how your attitude has seem to change since you and Carlos started talking after class more often.” He says 

You look away, feeling the heat rush to your cheeks. He laughs as he sets his water down. 

“I knew it!” He says 

“Knew what?” You ask 

“I knew you liked him. I’ve seen the way you look at him.” He says 

“Alright, I’ll admit, I think I’m falling for him.” You say 

“That’s okay Y/N. Your parents would like him.” He says 

“Who knows.” You say 

You look over at him and he just has that look on his face. You roll your eyes at him, sighing. 

“You’re lucky I have faith in you. Or I wouldn’t believe you.” You say 

He laughs, shaking his head.

“Carlos, you were out longer than usual.” Jay says as Carlos walks into the dorm room 

“Yeah, I know. I lost track of time while I was talking with Y/N.” Carlos says, sitting down at the table 

“Oh is somebody else falling for one of them?” Jay teases 

“I just might be. But I don’t think it’s a good thing. Cause our parents are just going to throw them in prison when they take over, so what’s the point?” He asks 

“Maybe your mom might let you keep her out of prison.” Jay says 

“Highly doubt Mal’s mother would though.” He says, logging onto his computer 

“Just go for it. Mal shouldn’t be the only one who is somewhat happy.” Jay says 

“We’ll see.” Carlos says as he starts his homework
