I think most of us would agree that hugs just feel good. The Chakra Hug is like a superpowered hug on steroids. And, with the current COVID crisis, I can’t think of a time when we need this more.
Sit with your partner in the Tantra “Yam Yum” pose pictured below. Arms wrapped around each other. Foreheads touching, noses touching, chest touching and solar plexus touching. Stay in this pose for 2 minutes focusing on your breath. One partner breathes out while the other partner breathes in.
Commit to doing this with your partner for two minutes daily for one week and talk about how it made you feel and what benefits it brought to your intimate relationship.
Hugs heal. They boost oxytocin – the bonding hormone. This helps to heal sickness, depression, feelings of loneliness, anxiety and stress, and creates intimacy within the relationship. Holding hugs for extended periods can lift serotonin levels increasing feelings of safety and happiness.

A married couple went to the hospital together to have their baby delivered. Upon their arrival, the doctor said he had invented a new machine that would transfer a portion of the mother’s labor pain to the father.
He asked if they were willing to try it out. They were both very much in favor of it. The doctor set the knob to 10% for starters, explaining that even 10% was probably more pain than the father had ever experienced before. But as the labor pains progressed, the husband felt fine. So, he asked the doctor to go ahead and bump it up a notch. The doctor then adjusted the machine to 20% pain transfer and the husband was still feeling fine. The doctor checked the husbands blood pressure and pulse and was amazed at how well he was doing. At this, they decided to try for 50%. The husband continued to feel quite well.
Since it was obviously helping out his wife considerably, he encouraged the doctor to transfer ALL the pain to him. The wife delivered a healthy baby with virtually no pain. She and her husband were ecstatic.
When they got home, they found the mailman dead on their porch.
Rick’s Café – If you’re in Negril, you simply can’t miss a visit to Rick’s café to enjoy watching the world famous sunset and awesome cliff diving. But do not go on an empty stomach. The food is mediocre at best, the prices are over the top and many of us suffered from upset stomachs the next day.
Disrespectful single guys – Hedo II openly invites single gentlemen which I don’t have a problem with…but to the guys in the hot tub trying to capitalize on the after party crowd by sticking their fingers into places they don’t belong…BACK OFF! Not only do you end up ticking a lot of people off, but you may also get popped (which DID happen at least once that I know about during my visit). On top of that, you give the resort a bad wrap which may just force them to reconsider their “single male” rule. Show some class and charm and I guarantee you’ll get a lot further with the ladies. And to those single guys that continue to be charming and respectful, we thank you and appreciate what you bring to the “Lifestyle”.
Hedonism II…the resort – Sadly, I feel that Hedo II leaves much to be desired. For the price point, and compared to my experience at other “Adult only” resorts such as Hedo III and Desires, I find the rooms to be very basic, the food bland, and sorely lacking in healthier choices like fresh fruits and veggies and the customer service is nothing short of disasterous. When I’m on vacation, I at least expect the staff to smile and be pleasant…it’s the hospitality industry after all. But unfortunately, the saying “don’t worry, be happy maan” didn’t’ hasn’t made its way into the resort or even as far as the front desk.
But to be fair, a few exceptions did catch my eye and are definitely notable. If you appreciate a great nudist beach, this one is “the bomb” compared to the offerings at HIII and Temptations (Los Cabos) and may just make your trip to HII worthwhile if this is something you cherish. In addition, the entertainment team does a great job at creating vibe and energy. They definitely bring the party and should be a consideration if you’re traveling solo or with a very small group. And finally, the staff at the Karaoke bar of all places is phenomenal. On our last night, we were treated to an amazing operatic performance by one of the entertainers. His voice is quite literally AWESOME and I know I’ll be hard pressed to hear a voice so beautiful again. Somebody should sign him. He’s a gem (sorry I can’t remember his name as I was so taken back by the voice).
One last thing…from the feedback we received, Hedo II has a reputation of having an older crowd on average than Hedo III. If crowd is important to you, be sure to familiarize yourself with what groups will be going at the same time to ensure the best synergies for you.
Taking a page out of the book of trip advisor, I give this resort an overall rating of II when compared to Temptations (Los Cabos) or Hedo III.

I hope this information is helpful to you when planning your next adult only vacation, but be remember, this is just one girls opinion, and it all comes down to personal preference. If you can swing it, try them all and decide for yourself, but no matter where you end up, your adult only vacation is what you make it so HAVE FUN!
Ahhhhh….home sweet home!
After 10 days of non-stop partying in the sun with nekked, naughty friends, my poor body is in serious need of a DETOX…now that’s a sure sign of another successful “adult only” vacation…
I just returned from my second annual “adult only vacation” – this year’s destination…Hedo II in Negril, Jamaica. Thanks to great organizers and great friends, I had an amazing time complete with some highlights, some lowlights, some nightlights and of course some hidden gems.
Overall, the group that I booked with, “Hedo Kama Sutra Group”, did a great job organizing. I was greeted warmly on arrival and was able to check in efficiently. The theme nights were well run and it was nice to be part of a larger group with a Canadian flare. (Thanks Sarge and Dee for putting together such a great package.) If you’re going to experience Hedo II, I definitely recommend going with a group. Just be sure to do as much research as possible to determine if the group is going to be a good fit for you.
We went with a great group of friends from the club. We all seemed to play well together. Sometimes we’d party together, sometimes apart, but more often than not, we reconnected at dinner and at the nightclub. We strengthened ties with existing friends, and even made some new ones.
The piano bar! Ok, don’t laugh, but one of my favorite memories of the vacation was the piano bar with Karaoke. Yep, not only did I say the dreaded “K” word, but I even sang it. Who knew that such a cheesy concept could be such a great party starter. Once we found this hidden gem, we were hooked. After dinner, many of us would head to the piano bar (pre-nightclub) to belt out Hedonistic renditions of songs like “Sweet Caroline…suck my ****” and “YMCA”. I will never be able to erase the image of three of my friends lying on their backs, buck naked on top of the piano using their legs to sign out the letters of the song. Bahahaha…funniest thing ever!
By day four, I was starting to get a mild case of cabin fever, so a friend and I decided we’d get in a bit of exercise and site seeing on the water. We hijacked one of the complimentary resort tandem kyacks and ventured out into the ocean. After about 20 minutes of paddling, we happened upon one of the hidden gems of Negril – unofficially dubbed “Lobster Island”. Lobster Island is a very small (probably no more than 2 acres) island inhabited mostly by cats, and Kevin a budding entrepreneur. For $15-$20 USD, Kevin will cook you up a feast of fresh fish, lobster sautéed in onions and garlic butter, and garlic toast. You pick your own live lobster which Kevin then prepares and barbecues to perfection right in front of you on his makeshift grill. Guaranteed, it will be the best lobster you’ll ever have.
Nude Booze Cruze – You haven’t experienced a Booze Cruise until you’ve done it nekked. On Thursday morning, I headed down to the docks and hopped on a boat to experience my first nude booze cruze. The sun was shining, the Jamaican tunes were jammin’, and the water was the perfect temperature. Our Captain was very hospitable, and he managed to stop at just the right spots so we could snorkel, swim and even water slide in our birthday suits. It was so liberating and freeing to be on the ocean “au naturelle”.

A review of the resort
Came across this on the net and thought I would share a little thanksgiving day humour…Enjoy!
I saw you across a crowded room. Among all the others that were there, The lights seemed to shine down on you alone. I knew then I had to have you for my own. Willingly, you came with me to my home. From the car, I carried you & threw open the door. Looking at you, I admire your body, your well shaped legs, and breasts. Slowly I remove what wraps, around your body so tightly, fitting you like a glove. Exposing your tender white skin. From your neck I remove your charms, and carry you off in my arms, to the warm water that awaits. The water cascades down your neck, flowing over your soft breasts then, making your legs glisten with wetness. Droplets of water cover your taut skin. My hands rub your body, ummmm running them through the beads of water. Making them trickle down off your body. I place my fingers inside you. You are warm and moist, so ready. I carry your still dripping body, to a laying place, so that I can put inside you what was well prepared to enter you before we even came through the door. As soon as I lay you down your legs spread open wide. You are ready now and so am I. I put a little in slowly at first, getting a feel for how much you can take in. I put in more, you take it willingly. In anticipation, faster and faster I put it in, pushing it in deeply as far as I can, until I can’t put any more in, you are so tight. With your legs wrapped tightly, not wanting to release any of it, I make you so hot for a very long time, until your sweet juices escape from within. Then I taste you, with my tongue at first, your skin is so soft and tender. I taste more of you with my mouth, you are so hot and moist, you taste so good. Your juices coating my mouth, making me drool in anticipation of eating you more, with every taste. “Oh yes”, I say to you, I must say Grace “Thank God for Butterball turkey…. Amen”

If you’re looking to add a little spontaneous extra zip to your play time, check out the NEW play vibrations disposable vibrating pleasure ring by Durex.
The sugar and spice…
Like many off the shelf cock rings, the Durex Play Vibrations Pleasure ring is designed to keep him standing at attention for extended foreplay. At the same time, the built in, mini-vibrating bullet can get her there just a little more quickly so that hopefully, you both arrive at the finish line at the same time. According to hubby, he found the thin band and sleek design to be a very comfortable fit while the vibrating mini-bullet added to his pleasure. For me, the mini-vibrating bullet added a little extra clitoral stimulation if it happened to land on just the right spot at just the right time. But admittedly, it’s hard to enjoy the full benefits of a vibrating toy without more constant application and stimulation.
The combination of the cock ring for extended play and mini-vibe for enhanced pleasure kept him on the edge until just the right moment when we could both climax at the same time, creating a more intimate and connected experience.
Unlike other similar products, the best thing about the Durex Play Vibrations Pleasure Ring is accessibility. Picking up a pack is as simple as a trip down the condom aisle of your local Walmart store, making it a great way to add in a little spontaneous, last minute spice. You can pick up a pack during your weekly shopping trip, or simply stop in on your way home from work and surprise your partner with a sensational little extra.
This is a great little product that packs a powerful punch and comes from a brand you can trust. But at approx. $13 bucks CDN, it’s pretty pricey, given the disposable nature and 20 minute lifespan. Not sure what this product costs to MFG, but if Durex can find a way to keep it under $8, they’ll have a hard time keeping it on the shelf.
