Do you need better bedroom etiquette?

I can think of a couple of things a lot of people don’t feel comfortable telling their partners about their bedroom etiquette.  When it comes to being intimate, you would think that no conversation is off limits.  The reality is that some people have hang ups about sex and talking about sex with their partner.

What do you do when your partner has made a few wrong moves and you need to let them know? I think many people are oblivious to some things.  Maybe you are not showing proper etiquette to your partner and they don’t want to outright tell you about it.

For the purpose of enlightenment (that’s what we do here, right?!), what are ways to improve your “etiquette” in the bedroom?  What should you be mindful of when it comes to you and your partner?

According to your good/bad experiences, what should you do/ never do?

Even though it’s an “adult”, try your very best to keep things PG, people.  Imagine your seven-year old daughter/son/niece/nephew is reading. Talk in code!

I spent each summer with my grandparents in Houston til I was 14. We’s spend the summer learning gymnastics, swimming and music. We also go to AstroWorld.

One summer they rented an RV and took us fishing. It was off a pier. :lol:

Leggs… I haven’t been on the blog in a minute
Last I checked….it seemed like Carlito was talking bout rings but in my eyes talk don’t mean a thing until a man shows up on one knee with a velvet box and a shiny something or another instead with the question most women have been waiting their entire life to hear.

I was engaged once before and I thank Jesus everyday that I didn’t marry that fool!!!!!

Calito! I wish you the best!!!!! can we help you plan a virtual wedding since it is unlikely that we will get an invite to the real deal?

We went fishing, too. West Point Lake wasn’t very far from my grandparent’s place. So, we fished too. That was how I was really introduced to the phenomenon known as “fish ‘n grits”.

give me the concrete jungle anyday!
That was my world too, but I gotta admit I liked visiting relatives in the south. I used to go fishing with my family in new orleans. We would get up around 4am and take the boat to the lake to go fishing. we’d catch maybe 70 fish. Take them back to my aunt and we’d help her scale ‘em, then she would filet them and fry ‘em up. There’s NOTHING like fish fresh out the water.

“I remember picking blackberries, which I actually liked because I ate more than I put in the basket. I remember spending many a afternoon shelling field peas, occasionally finding a worm or two.’

Aw shucks PG…you just took me back to memory lane….we used to stay in the woods picking blackberries & plums down in Bama when i was younger. Also, my great aunt used to make us shell huge tin buckets of peas. She must’ve been preparing for the end of the world. lol

Fishing and crabbing is most often free. It ain’t just recreation.

And in *this* supposedly recovering economy, that is meaningful for a lot of folk.

All this talk about picking and shelling peas, makes me wanna find a farm at pick me some fresh peas on *halves.*

I dealt with those greens too. They grew kale, turnips, cabbage, and collards. Grandpa also grew sweet potatoes, silver queen corn, cucumbers, yellow squash.

They had a space in State Farmers Market in Forest Park. I helped him sell until I was about 11 years old.

I will admit although I don’t like the chickens and the mud and the bugs and the heat and can’t understand the country twang, something about going back to such simpler times is quite endearing.

I would not mind living off the land. Poppa, obesity would be very low if people had to farm their own food. I think the mortality rate would be longer also.

Farina is like cream of wheat, which we ate alot up north. put some butter and sugar in it, and you’re good to go. Now sugar on grits is heresy! lol

Depends on where you go crabbing. When we go in Louisiana we get blue crabs.

Piedmont park wld be to far for me to come buy, i go to dekalb and buy all those u mentioned above every 2 weeks or so…..i cant have a meal without greens,ever.

hut if i were to be a greens broker, i can take advantage of the piedmont green folks and sell to them.

Even dekalb frmers is so full of green type pple in dekalb,emory,decatur etc..its such a healthy food place.

We just drop the traps in the morning and there are usually some in the traps by evening. However, it does change according to the tide sometimes.

There is nothing like walking in the backyard, going to the dock, and pulling your traps to find it full of blue crab. One time we even found a flounder in the trap with the crabs.
