WHY PRINCE WILLIAM DOESN‘T WEAR A WEDDING RING, BUT KATE MIDDLETON DOES

Kate Middleton, like most married women, wears a wedding ring. Granted,

it‘s not as noticeable as her 12-carat sapphire-anddiamond piece, but its 4

Joy feelings mag!


there, nonetheless: an 18karat band made of Welsh gold.

The left ring finger of her husband, Prince William, however, is bare.

Back in 2011, St. James‘s Palace addressed the choice to The Daily Mail. Kate Middleton would be wearing a ring after their wedding, but Prince William would not

because of ―personal preference.‖ ―He doesn‘t like jewelry, and the Palace issued a statement before their wedding saying so,‖ Penny Junor, author of The Duchess: Camilla 5

Parker Bowles and the Love Affair that Rocked the Crown, told Vogue. And, considering an estimated two billion people watched Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s wedding, it‘s not like anyone is unaware of his marital status. As Robert Jobson, royal editor of London‘s Evening Standard, put it, it‘s ―his prerogative.‖ But the fact that Prince William even had a yesor-no option leads to a fascinating look at British upper class, royal tradition, and history. Today, 90 percent of English men getting married are estimated to have wedding rings, but it‘s a relatively recent phenomenon. Rings for

men didn‘t become commonplace in the U.K. until the World War II–era, when soldiers wanted reminders of their wives back home. (Women, however, have been wearing bands since ancient Egypt.) Even so, many British blue bloods eschewed the trend, citing a cemented belief that men don‘t wear jewelry (the exception to this is a signet ring—but more on that later). One of those men is Prince Philip, who, despite being married to wedding ring–wearing Queen Elizabeth II for nearly 70 years, never wears one. Even today, men of a certain echelon often ditch the ring, for example, former prime minister David Cameron, an ―old Etonian.‖ 6

―There are some things that people like David Cameron will never do, and I think that is probably one of them,‖ Peter York, coauthor of The Official Sloane Ranger Handbook, told The Telegraph. ―It is code, like so many of these things . . . there is a group of upper-class people who think the less of that stuff you wear the better, less bling.‖ In a Daily Mail report, an anonymous source (so, take it with a grain of salt) lumped Prince William in with this groupthink: ―It is quite common for men in that strata of society not to wear a traditional wedding band.‖ However, Prince Charles ignored his father‘s precedent and wore a wedding ring for both his

marriages, to Princess Diana and Camilla Parker Bowles. But, unlike a ―normal‖ man, he wears his discreetly on his pinky finger, next to his signet ring. (Sometimes called a ―gentleman‘s ring,‖ it often features a family crest or symbol—his has the official signet of the Prince of Wales.) So, to some, it was a bit a surprise that Prince William, a contemporary royal in his own right, reverted back to this oldguard tradition. But, as Diane Clehane, author of Imagining Diana, suggested, William bucking a modern norm for a traditional one may be the most modern thing of all. ―William and Kate have shown us they are modern royals and are confident in each other‘s 7

Joy feelings mag!


love for one another. Kate omitted the word ‗obey‘ in her wedding vows, and William has opted not to wear a ring, which makes them like many millennial

couples—intent on doing things their way.‖ As the saying goes—so old, it‘s new again.

THE 50 BEST MARRIAGE TIPS OF ALL TIME (FROM 50 MARRIAGE EXPERTS)

Every husband and wife should memorize these!

We've asked 50 YourTango Experts to 8

Joy feelings mag!


share their best marriage advice. Ranging from how to have better communication (and better sex!) to how married couples should spend some time alone, these may well be the 50 best marriage tips ever compiled. This should be required reading for every husband and wife (or future married couple). 1. If your goal is to have a satisfying marriage with longevity, make sure you are accountable for the part you play in the relationship — good or bad. When you are in denial about your part in the relationship then you are no better than a child flinging sand at another

child in a sandbox. When you take responsibility for your part in the marriage, only then will you be able to connect with your partner in a mature, intimate way. - Carin Goldstein, LMFT 2. Research consistently shows that touching more creates a stronger bond by releasing oxytocin. Hold hands, rub shoulders, hug, kiss, give high-fives or even fist-bumps or bottom pats. When you give a quick hug or kiss, try to lengthen it to at least 5 or 10 seconds for more effective results! - Lori Lowe, MA 3. Learn how to agree to disagree. No two people agree on everything, and that's 9

Joy feelings mag!


okay, but it's important to be okay with each other's differences. - Lee Bowers, LP, PhD 4. Sometimes it's not about the amount of money you spend on a gift; it's about the thought that goes into something. Take the time to write a thoughtful note every so often saying what you love and appreciate about him/her. Drop it in his/her briefcase or purse so he/she will find it unexpectedly and it will brighten up his/her day. Suzanne K. Oshima, Dating Coach 5. For men, it's important to understand that women want to be listened to. Men don't need to solve or fix everything; listening itself

is an exceptional gift. For women, it's important to understand that men need time for themselves. By giving him space to pull away and not taking it personally, you allow him to reconnect with his desire for you and his commitment to the relationship. - MarsVenus Coaching, Life Coach 6. The biggest waste of effort in a marriage is trying to change your spouse, since the problems you have with your spouse are generally problems you have in yourself. When you try to change your spouse you come across as a nag and wind up sending the message that 'who you are is not enough.' Nobody likes getting that message, and 10

Joy feelings mag!


it leads to distance and polarization. Let your spouse be who he or she is and focus on changing yourself. - Dr. Rick Kirschner, Relationship Coach 7. See problems — boredom in the bedroom, lack of conversations, resentment — as symptoms and treat those symptoms just as you would treat a chronic illness that seemingly has no cure. Throw at it every possible remedy you've got, no matter how alternative or weird it seems. Chances are one or more of them will actually work and your marriage will get stronger and stronger. Alisa Bowman, Relationship Coach

8. Next time you argue with your partner, drop the shaming, blaming, needing to be right, and really listen without interrupting. Then communicate how you feel, using "I" statements. It's not your partner's job to read your mind, guess what you're thinking, or put words into your mouth. These are huge obstacles to open, honest communication and will guarantee resentment, anger, and frustration in the relationship. - Sharon Rivkin, MA, MFT 9. In order to strengthen your marriage, learn to recognize that most arguments have shared responsibility, that both people have valid points and valid reasons for 11

Joy feelings mag!


their feelings.- Kathy Morelli, LPC 10. Fair is not a four letter word. You may have forgotten about fairness, but now's the time to bring it back into your relationship. Are you both being fair when it comes to divvying up chores, communicating your needs, expressing dissatisfaction, dealing with finances, parenting, and supporting one another? If not, how can you improve and bring fairness back to the relationship? - Lisa Steadman, Dating and Relationship Coach 11. Nothing is more important in a marriage than the relationship between husband and wife.

When other things become more important, such as careers, children, and personal pursuits, trouble sets in. Make the relationship your top priority. When you do, the marriage flourishes. Cathy Meyer, CPC, MCC 12. Are you creating more pleasurable interactions in your marriage or are you making it painful or unpleasant for your spouse? If your spouse treats you with kindness, gentleness, patience and self-control, it's easy for you to respond kindly. If you are treated badly, with anger, impatience, etc., it's difficult to be nice in return. Focus on how you can be a blessing to your spouse and, in turn, you 12

Joy feelings mag!


will be blessed and so will your marriage. - Mack Har 13. Never begin a sentence with the word 'you'. Instead start with the word "I" and then share your feelings instead of your thoughts. This is not as easy as it sounds because we all disguise a lot of thoughts as feelings, as in "I feel like you are avoiding me." Genuine feelings are sad, angry, happy, lonely, frustrated, etc ... and sharing your core feelings creates better communication, and more connection and compassion. - Veronica Monet, ACS, CAM 14. Change your focus to one of learning to appreciate your

partner. - Michelle Poll, CPC, MA 15. Let go of criticism and blame. Focus on what there is to appreciate about your mate, then honestly and spontaneously express your specific appreciation to them. It's also good to do this for yourself. Judith Joyce, Life Coach 16. Never lose the fine art of dating. Setting aside a romantic evening on a regular basis can rekindle the magic of a long-term relationship. It doesn't have to be fancy, just special time for the two of you to remember how and why you first fell in love. - John Sovec, LMFT 17. Have regular times, even if it's just for 15 13

Joy feelings mag!


minutes, to check in on your relationship and what you appreciate about each other.

19. Recognize that your husband or wife is mirroring back to you who you are.

No talk about kids, schedules, etc. allowed. Mary Kay Aide, MS

So take whatever you're upset with him/her about and use it to help yourself look squarely at what you need to do in order to grow and evolve—the relationship will thrive! Ilene Dillon, LCSW, LMFT

18. Love your marriage by first taking care of yourself. So many of my patients say the reason their marriage fell apart is that they became depressed and disinterested in their partner. If you keep working on you, your marriage will stay fresh and vital. Start today by adding a new wedding vow to your list: Promise to take care of yourself so you will continue to age with grace and confidence by your partner's side. Mary Jo Rapini, LPC

20. Take time to have some fun together every day! With today's hectic schedules, it's easy to find your marriage at the bottom of the priority list. Take a walk and hold hands (nature calms), couple-cook (food fight!), exercise together (tennis or dancing maybe?) or just collect a "Daily Joke" to share. It doesn't have to be 14

Joy feelings mag!


expensive, but if you make the commitment and effort to laugh together as often as possible, it can sweeten your connection and cement your relationship for life. Melodie Tucker, CPC 21. Before you get mad or assign blame, take a breath and ask your partner for his or her perspective. For instance, it's your spouse's job to walk the dog in the morning, but you discover dog poop on the kitchen floor and cleaning it up makes you late for work. Instead of immediately placing blame, saying something like, "I'm puzzled about what happened with Spot this morning," is a gentle way to start a

conversation. - Jean Fitzpatrick. L.P 22. Make a list of three of the happiest moments in your marriage. Spend a few minutes each day briefly reliving those moments in your mind. The results will amaze you. - Lucia, Dating Coach 23. You can change your relationship for the better by increasing the use of the following statements: "I love you", "I'm here for you", "I understand", "I'm sorry", "Thank you", "I really appreciate all that you do", "It's so nice to see you", "That was quite an accomplishment!" Gina Spielman

15

24. Appreciate your partner at least five times each day. Appreciate them from your heart about who they are at their essence. Leave gratitude in love notes, hide them so they will find them, or look deeply into their eyes and tell them. Be creative! - Linda Marie, RN, BSN 25. In order to keep the spark alive and avoid "roommate syndrome," couples have to understand the notion of spending "time" together versus creating "sacred" time together. Spending time at social events, time with family and doing "chores" together does not count as sacred time. Instead, carve out special time to not only be intimate, but also

ensure that you continue to share new experiences together such as hiking, exploring someplace new, or arranging a stay-cation in your own city. - Marni Battista, CPC 26. Compliment your spouse everyday! A compliment is a sign of acknowledgment and appreciation. Make an effort to affirm your spouse's value in life, and in love. - Nicole Johnson, Dating and Relationship Coach 27. Create a clear vision of your shared future together. Sit down, listen to each other and write out how you want your future as a couple to look. It's much easier to create your best relationship together if 16

Joy feelings mag!


both people's needs are voiced, heard and supported by their partner. - Eve Agee, PhD

Julie Spira, Dating and Relationship Coach

28. Censor every impulse to blame or criticize your partner.

31. Communication and time together are the keys to strengthening your marriage.

Do everything you can to support your partner's well-being, and respect your partner as you would your best friend. - John Gerson, Ph.D 29. You need to date your mate. Date night is sacred and special and should be on the same day of the week every week. One week the wife should suggest the date idea and the husband should come up with the date night plan for the opposite week. This encourages both the husband and wife to be invested in date night. -

30. Learn and practice Tantra. - Judith Condon

Impossible to imagine one without the other! - Lori Edelson, LMSW, LMFT 32. One of the most important factors in a good marriage is respect. Respect each other, avoid verbal abuse, and keep insults to yourself. Bad words are just like squeezing toothpaste out of its tube — once it is out you can never get it back in again. - Georgia Panayi, MBA 33. Set aside 10 minutes a day to talk to your partner. 17

Joy feelings mag!


Ask what her favorite movie is and why, ask him to recall a happy memory from childhood, ask her what she'd like to be remembered for, ask him to name the three worst songs of all time. Do it at dinner, before bed, or anytime—as long as you do it for 10 minutes every day. This simple change infuses relationships with new life. - Dr. Terri Orbuch, Ph.D

Select an activity where the two of you can interact, talk, and just be together enjoying each other's company (not a movie!). End your date in the bedroom. Works like a charm! - Ann Robbins, CRC

34. You can have control or you can have connection with your partner, but you can't have both. Pursue connection! - Lee Horton, Ph.D

A healthy marriage is one that has a mix of individual, family, and couple time. The amount of each may be different for each couple, but the mix is necessary to keep a functional marriage. Michele Seligman LCSW, BCD

35. Every week if possible, go out on a date just like you did before you were married.

36. Couples often lose each other because of their busy lives: work, children, computers, and separate male/female activities.

37. Our brains are the only organ in the human 18

Joy feelings mag!


body which do not self regulate, but need to be in connection with another brain for healing. Sit face-to-face and gaze into your lover's eyes in order to allow the limbic system to relax. This will bring you closer and create the deepest sort of intimacy. - Mary Kay Cocharo, LMFT 38. When you first see each other at the end of your respective days, before you do anything else, hold each other without speaking for at least 60 seconds. By doing so you remind each other's old/reptilian brains that you are a source of pleasure and comfort. It's simple, it's easy to do, and it will make a world of

difference. - Laura Marshall, LCSW 39. Preface important communication with a simple yet effective introduction. Try: "Honey, I'm confused about your response to my plans for a weekend hunting trip with the guys. When would be a good time to talk further?" My relationship coaching clients have found that prefacing their remarks encourages a better, more accommodating reaction from their partner. - Greg R. Thiel, MA 40. On those everimportant date nights, remember to be a wife first and a critic second. Every time you open your mouth to complain about something — whether it's 19

Joy feelings mag!


the food, the service, the movie, the weather, whatever — some part of your partner feels he's failing because you aren't having a great time. Men are happiest when they can please their woman! Save the full critique for your girlfriends and in meantime, let him see the best in you. - Delaine Moore, Dating and Relationship Coach 41. Lean in. When it gets hard in a relationship, our tendency is to protect ourselves, to retreat, to "lean out." Leaning out when your partner reaches out creates distance and dissonance. If instead you "lean in" to the uncomfortable feelings, to the unknown and your own vulnerability, and meet

your partner, you can actually strengthen your relationship through the struggles you face together. - Christine Arylo, Life Coach 42. Accept your partner exactly as they are today. Don't try to change him/her. - Ellen Hartson 43. When your partner tells you something (about you) that is bothering him, reflect back what he is saying. When we "mirror", this helps us not feel as defensive and allows us the opportunity to better understand what he is trying to communicate. Anne Crowley, Ph.D 44. The best way to strengthen a marriage is to support and assist each other in being the 20

Joy feelings mag!


best you can be. A strong marriage is one in which both people understand that the other person needs to have outside interests and activities which help them to feel happy and fulfilled. A strong marriage is one where both people understand that it is more important to be happy than it is to be right. - Dr. Joe Amoia 45. Have you lost that loving feeling? Step 1: Write down 10 qualities you loved about your partner when you first met and read it to each other. Step 2: Brainstorm a list of 10 fun things you did together when you first met; do one date per week and enjoy bringing back that loving feeling! - Tasha Dimling, Dating Coach, MBA

46. You're entitled to the occasional bad mood. You're not entitled to make your partner the whipping boy. - Sherry Amatenstein, LCSW 47. A strong marriage is a partnership in trust. Trust your partner in everything, including purchases and financial decisions, and to bring up things with you that need a joint decision. If you can't do that, the two of you have a problem. Donald Pelles, Ph.D., CHt 48. Always remember that life is long. In the heat of the moment, what feels super-important will likely fade in importance as time goes by. Before you react by yelling, tossing insults or unkind words, remember 21

Joy feelings mag!


that "This, too, shall pass". In fact, recent studies have shown that even the most unhappiest of couples report being very happy five years later. So don't let one unfortunate incident, difficult argument or challenging moment destroy your lifetime of happiness. Melanie Gorman, MA 49. A woman needs her partner to spend time giving her his full attention and looking directly into her eyes. When she receives this, she can easily get in touch with her feelings of love for her husband and becomes much more receptive to his needs. This is how intimacy can be fulfilling for both people ... magical even! -

Linda Wiggins, Executive Director for RelationSync 50. Use character-related words that honor your spouse for such qualities as patience, helpfulness, courage, or kindness. Create regular opportunities for fun, laughter, and positive experiences. Figure out what communicates love to each other and do that. Be observant and thoughtful with little things and even do chores that the other dislikes. Consciously doing what opens and softens your spouse's heart will benefit you both in the long-run and keep your marriage happier. - Susanne Alexander

GREAT SEX WITHOUT INTERCOURSE

OLDER COUPLES CAN LOOK FORWARD TO TRYING OUT THESE CREATIVE ALTERNATIVES 23

Joy feelings mag!


Most Americans define sex as intercourse. The old in-and-out can be great fun, sure, but it also tends to frustrate many older couples. Even when aided by erection medication, older men may have difficulty accomplishing it. And even with the help of a lubricant, older women may experience pain during it.

Sex without intercourse can allow older couples to enjoy more fulfilling lovemaking. So what's a loving couple to do? Fortunately, there's a satisfying alternative: sex without intercourse. This strategy requires some tactical adjustments, but it allows older lovers

to enjoy fulfilling lovemaking for the rest of their lives. Great sex minus intercourse involves the same leisurely, playful, whole-body caressing that sexuality authorities recommend to lovers of all ages. But with intercourse off the menu, it focuses instead on the many other ways couples can make love: hand massage, oral sex and toys — specifically dildos and vibrators for women, and penis sleeves for men. Sex without intercourse means taking new paths to mutual pleasure. The footing may be unfamiliar at first, but hasn't novelty always been the key to sexual zing? If you embrace new moves you both enjoy with love and


laughter, sex sans intercourse might even become the best you ever had. Here are a few pointers to help you scout out this new terrain: Age-Related Sexual Changes The biggest sexual issues women encounter after menopause are vaginal dryness and a decline in libido. A lubricant can minimize dryness, and even if desire fades in the early years of menopause, it may rebound later. Most postmenopausal women still enjoy partner sex and don't want to see it end. Meanwhile, men past 50 typically lose the ability to get aroused from fantasies alone; physical stimulation becomes a prerequisite to an erection. (Erections

may also be less firm and more, uh, precarious.) These changes are unnerving when you first notice them — which is the same time when some men conclude, erroneously, that they've reached the twilight of their sexual careers. Even when these mechanics and dynamics make intercourse impossible, however, sex can remain remarkably fulfilling. Despite the changes that aging invariably brings, couples open to erotic alternatives will discover that they can still attain sexual satisfaction together. Alternatives for Men Hand massage of the penis is key to sex without intercourse. Many men over 50 often get a firm 25

Joy feelings mag!


erection during solo sex but find that a partner's strokes do not achieve the same effect. Why? Because women may not appreciate exactly how men like to be fondled. The solution? Men can show women what they want. This may feel awkward for both partners at first, but it helps the woman provide precisely what the man desires. Fellatio is another cornerstone of great sex without intercourse. Oral sex can provide men with great pleasure — even if the penis is only partially erect. Contrary to myth, a full erection is not necessary for ejaculation and orgasm. If men receive sufficiently vigorous stimulation, it's still quite

possible for them to have a marvelous orgasm with only a partial erection (or even a flaccid penis). Couples trying sex without intercourse might also experiment with a penis sleeve — an artificial vagina or mouth that, when lubricated, feels much like the real thing. Sold by sex-toy marketers, penis sleeves are easy to incorporate in partner lovemaking. They are recommended for men whose erections are neither firm nor persistent enough for vaginal intercourse. Alternatives for Women Not only are hand massage and cunnilingus readily available to couples who can't manage intercourse, they're also more likely to bring 26

Joy feelings mag!


women to orgasm. Only 25 percent of all women are reliably orgasmic during intercourse. That means three-quarters of women of all ages must have direct clitoral stimulation to experience orgasm. When men have iffy erections, women can use a dildo or vibrator to achieve that filled-up feeling. Women might use these toys on themselves as their partner watches or gently caresses them. Or men might gently slide well-lubricated toys into their well-lubricated partners. To more closely replicate intercourse, men might also try wearing a strap-on dildo. Sex-toy marketers offer dildos, vibrators and strap-ons.

Great Sex for Life After decades of straightdown-the-fairway intercourse, it can be a challenge to discover the joys of reaching the green without it. This is a transition that will require both physical and emotional adjustments. But once you master the techniques, you'll be on the road to mutually fulfilling lovemaking for the rest of your lives. Note: Some people object to oral sex and/or sex toys, and that's just fine; no one should feel pressured to have sex in ways that cause distress. Older couples interested in customizing sex to their individual tastes might consult a sex therapist.

THE 10 BEST MOVIES OF 2017 (SO FAR), RANKED There‘s a creepy fun fact: Thrillers are killing at the cinema in 2017. The first half of this year has unleashed cinematic social movements (thanks, Wonder Woman!), another Disney uber-hit in Beauty and the Beast that‘s making sure Scrooge McDuck has plenty of gold coins to swim in, and a remarkably deep bench of indie films where stuff goes bump in the night, including the postapocalyptic It Comes at Night, cannibal-crazy

French film Raw and Kristen Stewart ghost movie Personal Shopper.

Radical Oscar picks: Five to consider from 2017's first half

The second half of the year already looks strong with July fare like SpiderMan: Homecoming, War for the Planet of the Apes and A Ghost Story, but here are the best movies so far (through June):


10. 'Colossal' Movies with giant monsters have a high bar to meet now with Nacho Vigalondo‘s inarguably or iginal comedydrama about a struggling young woman (Anne Hathaway) who discovers one hangover-filled morning that she controls

a huge creature stomping all over Seoul. The film lovingly tweaks disastermovie conventions, yet it‘s also very much a thoughtful character study about addiction, bullying and throwing down, Godzilla-style, for what‘s right.


9. 'Split' For those who‘ve been waiting for M. Night Shyamalan to get back to his old form, hallelujah for this twisty delight. An intriguing semi-sequel to his hit Unbreakable, the psychological drama about a man with 23 (wait,

make that 24) very different personalities is an unexpected tour de force for James McAvoy, who has to play the many parts of former soldier Kevin Crumb, from 10year-old child to superhuman beast.

30

8. 'Baby Driver' Director Edgar Wright brings all his talents to bear with his mash-up of crime films and jukebox musicals. Most of the action is set to the beat of tunes ranging from oldschool Sam & Dave jams

to the modern likes of Beck, and Wright gives us enough crazy criminals and lovebirds to fuel emotional investment in the story of the fastest getaway driver (Ansel Elgort) in Atlanta.

7. 'I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore' 31

Joy feelings mag!


This comedy thriller is both empowering adventure and cautionary tale: A woman (Melanie Lynskey) beset by life finally snaps after her home is burglarized. She and her wacky neighbor (Elijah Wood) embark on

a vigilante mission that goes hilariously and violently wrong because neither of them is exactly Batman. Of all the good original movies on Netflix (including Okja and Shimmer Lake), World sticks with you the most.


6. 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' Come for the talking raccoon, stay for the study in parenthood. The return of Marvel‘s cosmic misfit heroes is a lovely combo of depth and goofiness: Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) meets his real dad (Kurt Russell), the

whole team needs to take care of Baby Groot (Vin Diesel), but it‘s space outlaw Yondu (Michael Rooker) who most embraces his mantle as a father figure during a heartfelt redemptive arc.

33

Joy feelings mag!


5. 'A Dark Song' It‘s a slow-burn story of a woman (Catherine Walker) renting a Welsh house for a black magic ritual to summon a guardian angel and speak with her murdered son, but when the crazy stuff kicks in, this British horror flick becomes

deeply affecting. The mom struggles with an oddball occultist (Steve Oram) and goes through all manner of weirdness on a mission more of revenge than love, leading to a climax that is beautiful, thoughtful and surprising.

34

Joy feelings mag!


The Big Sick' This year has been full of comedic duds (you‘re not forgiven for Baywatch yet, Rock). The lone standout is Kumail Nanjiani‘s quasiautobiographical

tale about a stand-up comedian who falls for a young grad student (Zoe Kazan), breaks up with her because of his Pakistani family, then figures out his real


feelings when she‘s in a coma. At a time when Hollywood has a dearth of

comedic leading men, Nanjiani proves himself a true superstar.

'The Lego Batman Movie' How do you make the best Batman movie since The Dark Knight? By crafting a kid-friendly, joyously insane comedy that upends the Gotham City

vigilante‘s inherent gritty bro-ness and loner reputation. Voiced by Will Arnett, this Caped Crusader has the sickest abs and the coolest toys, 36

Joy feelings mag!


yet it‘s not The Joker (Zach Galifianakis) attacking his city that makes him who he needs

to be but instead the family that has been around him the whole time.

2. 'Logan' Hugh Jackman‘s grand finale as Wolverine is part Western, part family

drama and all business with the old retired antihero dusting off the 37

Joy feelings mag!


metal claws one last time. Jackman‘s character is more brutal than ever as he struggles with his mortality, but the highlight is the relationship with his

equally primal little-girl counterpart (Dafne Keen). They fight, bicker and ultimately love each other with an unequaled grace in the superpowered genre

1. 'Get Out' Director Jordan Peele‘s psychological horror movie has become a

socially conscious phenomenon — and for good reason. Get Out is 38

Joy feelings mag!


supremely impressive in the clever and biting manner it looks at racism, culture and humanity with the story of a young African-American man‘s weekend in hell at his

white girlfriend‘s family manor. Most key, though, it makes us question how we treat one another at a time when common decency seems to be most needed.

7 THINGS TO NEVER DO TO YOUR VAGINA

67

Joy feelings mag!


The vagina is a sensitive organ and often prone to infection. According to the Mayo Clinic vaginal yeast infection (also called vaginal candidiasis) ―affects up to 3 out of 4

women at some point in their lifetimes‖. There are many things that can cause an infection in the vagina, and it‘s important to be aware of the risk-factors. For your 68

Joy feelings mag!


own health, here are ten things you should never do to your vagina.

pathogens, increasing the risk of associated infections.

1. Douching

2. Vaginal steaming

Douching is a method whereby women wash the vagina out with a liquid solution, usually a mixture of water and vinegar. For centuries there has been a debate on the possible benefits and adverse effects of this practice, but research from the University of Alabama shows the ―risk of ascending infection from the pressure of douching may be greatest around the time of ovulation when the cervical os is gaping and the mucus is thin‖. Furthermore, douching may decrease vaginal bacteria, but cause a rapid proliferation of potential

Vaginal steaming refers to a new trend where women remove their underwear and sit on special chairs that have herbal-infused steam coming out of them, aimed at the vagina. According to the Huffington Post, this process can disrupt the natural bacteria of the organ, making it more prone to infection. 3. Get a piercing For some women it might be part of a sexual fantasy to get a piercing in their vagina, but it can cause unnecessary complications. Doctors from St Mary‘s hospital in 69

Joy feelings mag!


the UK alert to the fact that the vagina is a sensitive area, and besides the possibility of pain and nerve damage, piercings open up the body to possible infections. 4. Push foreign objects your vagina Any foreign object has the potential to cause an infection, research from the University of Michigan has shown. The most common symptoms of an infection caused by a foreign object include a change in vaginal discharge and an unpleasant smell. If you have lost an object up there, it is important to immediately consult a doctor. 5. Use scented soaps or perfumes

The vagina can sometimes have a slight odour, but for the most part its natural scent should be neutral. Infections can cause a bad smell, but using scented soaps or perfumes is a bad idea. Research from Johns Hopkins University shows the vagina is a delicate organ with a specific pH balance. Any scents or flavours can throw off this balance, making it prone to infection. 6. Wearing too tight underwear Underwear should fit you comfortably and should not be too tight. Underwear that is too tight can cause friction and irritation, and heat and moisture can build up in the vaginal area. Bacteria 70

love this environment and cause infection. 7. Use weird substances as lube It‘s quite normal to need some lubrication during sexual encounters, but you should never use anything other than standard lube. Other substances can cause infection, and even oil-based lubricants are thicker, and thus more difficult to remove from the vaginal canal. When to worry about your vagina

vagina, which is the body's way of keeping the vagina healthy and clean. A normal discharge is clear or cloudy white. However, if this discharge becomes foul smelling or is accompanied by symptoms like itching or burning, it might be indicative of an infection. The most common infections causing a discharge are thrush, also known as candidiasis; and bacterial vaginosis. What is Trush?

Most women have a normal vaginal discharge that may vary in volume and colour throughout the month.

Thrush is a common infection caused by strains of Candida fungi or yeast, especially Candida albicans.

Vaginal discharge is secretions from the

Candida infection may be present in different parts 71

Joy feelings mag!


of the body such as the mouth, vagina and skin.

What is bacterial vaginosis?

Candida overgrowth has a number of causes, including antibiotics, a compromised immune system, hormonal imbalance, stress and an inadequate diet.

Bacterial vaginosis (BV) occurs when bacteria in the vagina become imbalanced and leads to an infection.

Thrush can often be diagnosed by a simple physical examination and viewing a scraping sample through a microscope at the doctor's office. In otherwise healthy individuals, infections can usually be eliminated with a short course of antifungal medication. Thrush can be treated with topical antifungal medications administered directly into the vagina as creams, ointments or suppositories.

Small organisms called Lactobacilli help to keep the pH at the right level, but using antibiotics, soaps and even having sex can leave the vagina more alkaline, thereby encouraging bacterial growth. Usually bacterial vaginosis produces a thin, white discharge and has an unpleasant musty or fishy smell. BV can be treated with over the counter topical (vaginal) or oral antibiotics such as 72

metronidazoleor clindamycin. Correct diagnoses and treatment may decrease risk of future potential health problems such as bladder infection and upper genital tract infection. Can you really boost your immune system? Walk into any pharmacy and you will see several posters and pamphlets on stuff you should take to boost your immune system. But is it possible to do this? Your immune system is a very complex thing. It has many different components, all of which are aimed at protecting

your body against invading pathogens (micro-organisms generally known as germs) which cause disease in the host, namely you. These micro-organisms can be bacteria, viruses or fungi to name the most widespread

These micro-organisms can be bacteria, viruses or fungi to name the most widespread three.

Good and bad bacteria There are also good bacteria, such as those in 73

Joy feelings mag!


your digestive system, without which you wouldn‘t be alive. But many bacteria have no such honourable intentions concerning you. In short, your body is at war all the time. You sneeze – that‘s an immune response. A mosquito bites you and you start itching – that‘s an immune response. You have diarrhoea – that could be an immune response. A quick look at how different parts of your body protects you from pathogens These are the ones you should individually protect against invading pathogens. By doing so

you strengthen the entire body.

Is it that simple? The exact workings of the immune system are still a bit of mystery, according to a report from Harvard Health Publications. It‘s an amazing system, but exactly how it works is still the subject of much worldwide research. And precisely because there are so many different types of cells in your immune system, fighting off so many different pathogens, it is difficult to decide exactly which part 74

Joy feelings mag!


of the system needs boosting, if any, say the Harvard researchers. And conclusive evidence on the immune-boosting capabilities of any specific supplement is still very much a future dream. Don't overstimulate your immune system Experts say that an overactive immune system can be responsible for many diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, or allergic reactions. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease in which your immune system mistakenly attacks your own body‘s tissues,

mainly in the joints of the hands or the feet. When you have an allergy (such as asthma or eczema), it means your immune system is wrongly identifying a substance as a dangerous invading pathogen. These are not responses you want to encourage. All systems in your body, from your digestive system to your immune system to your blood circulation obviously will function more effectively if you lead a healthy lifestyle.

75

Joy feelings mag!


But is there any magic substance in particular that you should be taking? Not according to the researchers. Your body needs a variety of vitamins and minerals, exercise, decent rest and hygienic living in order to help your immune system fight the good fight against invading pathogens. No single product or action can protect you completely. Of course there are certain things that will predispose you to illness and infections. Things that compromise your immunity

If you smoke or drink heavily, are constantly under a huge amount of stress, or never get any exercise, or eat an unhealthy diet, obviously you will be putting all systems in your body under unnecessary stress – not just your immune system. Nothing will be able to function optimally, and of course you will become more susceptible to opportunistic infections. It will be a bit like a car that is never taken for a service, or has the wrong petrol put into it. It will go for a while, and then 76

Joy feelings mag!


shudder to a halt. Other factors that also influence immune response These include your medical history, immune system disorders, your genetic makeup, and your age. It is thought that immune response does weaken with age – but then, so do many other systems in the body.

The one truly effective immune system booster is vaccination

system can prevent or weaken certain viruses, such as measles or polio. By all means get a flu shot (the virus changes every year, alas, so once isn't enough), but there is no magic bullet to kick start your immune system into action. So ignore the ads, and rather spend your energy and time and money on living a balanced and healthy life. Your immune system is most probably doing a brilliant job without any outside help.
