Joyous Thanksgiving!

"Gratitude is a twofold love -- love coming to visit us, and love running out to greet a welcome guest."
...Henry van Dyke, late 19th-early 20th century American author and educator

The holidays are upon us, and whatever you celebrate, you’re likely to be inundated with food, drink, shopping and stress. Our body image can take a big hit when we get on the scales in January to discover that special holiday gift of yet another few pounds. Many of us just don’t feel sexy when we’re dragging around some extra weight. Women might avoid helpful p-v positions because they worry their stomachs might look fat or their breasts saggy. Men’s confidence might diminish at discovering their penises look smaller when hidden under a bit of a belly. Let’s recognize that we’re sexy beings regardless of our looks; and most of us will feel even sexier by maintaining our bodies in good health.

On a happy note, here are a few holiday ideas not just for surviving, but thriving:

· Holiday Parties: A friend of mine suggests that you remember not to act like a complete ass when you bump into an ex or that you overcome your innate shyness and talk to that special someone you’ve been wanting to get to know better (what a great holiday gift to yourself!).

· When you’re feeling stressed: Breathe. Smile. Have an orgasm.

· And for those of you who have aaaaaall your issues handled, here’s a reminder to play safe and play smart.

This T-Day, I’m particularly thankful for:

- Living in California, where most (but not all) sexual rights are protected. Did you know that vibrators are illegal in Texas? No wonder they spend all that time bouncing up and down on horseback!
- The new Congress, which gives us all a glimmer of hope for a new, more educated and humane approach to sexual health.
- And finally, Maestro Jim and #9 for all their inspiration and help with producing this blog.

    You bring up a good point: for some of us, being healthy means putting on weight rather than taking it off. Go figure :-} Dr. J
