Before making love with your spouse, there are some rules you must adhere to, these rules, if followed, would not only guarantee a better sex life but a great sex. Here are some dos and don’ts of the bedroom:
1. NEVER GO IN EXHAUSTED
If you just returned from a hard day’s job or you feel fatigued for some reason, don’t indulge in sex, it’s going to turn out bad. This is because sex demands your energy, focus and cooperation. Using up all your energy during sex could exhaust you further and you could even sleep off during the act and this may affect your partner’s ego. He or she may think they are not good at whatever they must have been doing to you.
So take enough rest, drink lots of water or eat fruits, so you’ll be well energised. If you realise your partner is not up for it, please try and control your aggro. Thanks.
2. ALWAYS SHOWER BEFORE AND AFTER
Many things could spoil a good sex, one of them includes body/mouth odour. A bad smell is a turn off for anybody, not just your partner. So before you guys start anything, hit the shower, you could even do this together, it makes it more fun. You could bath each other. Take time and bath yourself to rid yourself of sweat, remember sex is a very intimate thing, you’re going to open up yourself to each other, so do well to keep everything clean.
If you have a problem with your breath, something like halitosis, you could chew gum to make your mouth smell a bit fresh.
3. BE RELAXED
This is a very important rule, if not the most important. Don’t follow your man into the room as if he’s about to rape you or something. Feel free, relax and go crazy for him.
It’s no secret that a relationship takes hard work and compromises. You need to let go of a lot of things, and pick the right fights to ensure that you actually do end up having a certain level of harmony. Despite your best efforts, there are going to be some things that just won’t work out, and its best to give up and move on because there is no fixing it.
1. Relationship with your in-laws
This one is always tricky. You’ll either love them, or you won’t. And it’s up to you to deal with it in a mature, easy way. If you don’t get along with them, despite your best efforts, don’t beat yourself up over it. Accept it and move on. You might not end up with the best set of in-laws and that’s okay. You are married to their child, not them!
2. Relationship with your partner’s friends
You want to love these people because they are clearly important to him/her. However, you might not always get along the same way as your partner does, and that is okay too. You cannot force yourself to be friends with people who you don’t really like, or who don’t like you. Be cordial and polite, that’s it.
3. Forgetting to text back
You cannot understand how someone cannot remember to text back, however it does happen. You need to understand that not texting back doesn’t always translate to not caring. Some people are just not cut out to responding instantly and always keeping the other person informed. As long as this doesn’t affect the communication in the relationship, you need to let this go. It’s not worth a fight!
4. A tiny bit of jealousy
Yes we would want our partner to trust us one hundred percent, but small bouts of jealousy do tend to seep in as it’s only human to feel a little insecure. However, the functional word is “tiny bouts”. As long as it doesn’t go out of hand, and start affecting the trust between the two of you, let it go.
5. Their relationship with their ex
Everyone deals with their past relationships differently and, while you might not want to even see your ex’s face, there are some people who are genuinely friends with their exes. If your partner honestly is friends with one of his/her ex, and promises that that relationship does not affect what you both have, we suggest letting it slide.

Meeting with the parents is one of the biggest steps you will take in your relationship. However the problem is knowing when is the “right time” to actually make it happen. This person is obviously important to you and you don’t want to mess up things by rushing into it and freaking him or her out. However if you do feel that this is the next big step, here are a few factors that will give you the green flag to go ahead with the meeting. Sure, it’s going to be awkward at first, but that doesn’t meet it shouldn’t happen.1. You both are super secure about this relationship
You’ve had the big talk and both of you are on the same page regarding where this relationship is heading. You trust this person completely and you do feel the most secure, happy and confident when you are around him or her.2. It’s the next big step
You and your partner have been dating for quite some time now, and meeting their parents and vice versa seems to be the next big step. You want the families to meet and also get okay with the idea of the two of you being together.3. You both are ready
Remember this is not just about you and your parents. Your partner has to be as prepared as you are. Make sure you talk to your partner about their honest feelings and thoughts regarding this. You really don’t want to rush this big meeting.4. Your partner has met other members in your family
It is actually a great idea to make your partner meet either your sibling(s) or your cousin(s) before you go ahead with meting the parents. Get their opinion and perspective too and when you finally introduce them to your parents, let that person be there too to make things less awkward.5. Your family is okay with the idea of meeting someone you love
Are your parents well and truly on-board with the idea of you introducing someone new to them? If they are going to freak out and flip, you really don’t want to put them in this situation. Talk to them about how important this person is for you, and how you do need them to get along.

Single Actresses no longer wear underwear to movie shoots — Top actor exposes “disgusting” trend in Nollywood
The actor made the allegation via his Instagram page, where he claimed that he has confirmed the development himself, describing the act as suspicious and disgusting.
He wrote, “Why is it that most female Nollywood Actresses who are single No longer Wear ‘PANTS’ to movie locations? This is giving me headaches.
“Is it that most female celebrities, especially Nollywood actresses who are single have developed the habit of not wearing pants to movie locations? I can tell you of 4 different star actresses I had personally confirmed, and this is really giving me headaches because, aside the very fact that it is suspicious, its also disgusting.
“That’s why most of our directors are always losing concentration when they are directing on set, the worst is that these group of actresses are fond of spreading their legs wide unnecessarily just to seduce fellow actors and directors.
“Their aim and motives are what I am yet to understand, that’s how I walked out of a shoot in Asaba when one actress was just misbehaving on set, someone said she just finished smoking marijuana, but that’s not my own business, I am an actor and not her doctor, but what I frown at is when someone is opening her legs any how and misbehaving in the middle of a shoot, distracting both the directors, actors and crews, that’s what I can’t stand, if we want to shoot a movie, let’s be professional and let’s not turn movie locations into strip clubs.
“May God deliver us in this industry, some people are just here to play around, they are the very few giving nollywood a bad name.”
Nigerian actor, rapper and songwriter, Folarin Falana, otherwise known as Falz, has condemned the ongoing discrimination against Nigerians by the authorities of the Kenyan airports.
The Soft Work crooner noted that the discrimination he faced in the East African country in his recent visit to the country was humiliating.
Falz while speaking on Soundcity, lamented that he was pushed to the corner alongside others at the airport where they were treated as though they were not Africans. He said the airport security were suspecting that they could be cyber criminals.
He wondered why Nigerians in Kenya are often seen as cyber criminals or internet fraudsters.
According to him, “I was on holiday recently. I was with my guys.
“We were at the airport about to get into Kenya. Kenya o! African country o.
“They sent us to go to the side with Nigerian people.
“They kept on saying Nigerian are known for Cybercrime, Internet fraud.
“It was disgraceful, extremely shameful.
“Obviously, it’s discrimination on another level because I’m Nigerian you automatically think I am a cyber criminal.”
