your ego has no halo


your ego has no halo

 

why when you get laid do i get screwed?

and you’re always dressed, while i blush nude

newsflash, your ego has no halo

her friends are all men

seems again and again

no key to their vault

it just wasn’t her fault

she was too needy

cared not for those greedy

aced crossword puzzles

with inked letter bubbles

angels accept cash

shorter lines do get fast

true colors seem dull

staring at stilled seagulls

she does not exist

or so she’ll still insist

scene selections read

while union jobs are dead

magic wand hard core

the one tool she adored

her hands are tied tight

she refuses to fight

a chuckle to laugh

cheeky smirks just in half

i’m headed somewhere

from here and everywhere

dragonflies in seas

firefly bumblebees

reader discretion

advised to perfection

she a puppeteer

strings were her biggest fear

manipulated

from means she created

she directs opal

three toys in total

they may not be real

but she knows that they feel

wood and fake faces

drunk and so wasted

string master unseen

talents seemingly obscene

the insanity

professional vanity

after a while past

time turned quick and fast

remaining unseen

she then could twirl her dream

puppets and not dolls

sculptures not stupid balls

it’s the innocent

that want us to invent

sick really sick

these wooden sticks

varnished and painted

cracked and sainted

trust me lay low

cause your ego got no halo

you fool your halo has the ego

Do Women have Nocturnal Orgasms, ‘wet dreams?’


Do Women have Wet Dreams?

Absolutely!

So why a hub about women and Wet Dreams? Because many women aren’t aware as to whether they do or do not have wet dreams. And the many women that do have them, better known asNocturnal Orgasms or Emissions, most, keep it under the covers, sort of speak. Then there are those who have never had one and others who do but are unsure given the severity or intensity of the orgasm.

My own experiences as a woman, not until after childbirth, had me bedazzled because no one ever talked about female wet dreams and I knew I was having them. So I privately did some reading and found out some interesting facts.

I thought this content could shed some light for both sexes regarding female wet dreams as this video shows you many women are unclear about the entire subject matter. So let’s dive in, shall we;

What is a female wet Dream?

Wet dreams typically occur in males during their prepubescent and teenage years. Though they usually taper off as males mature. Some may experience them in adulthood.

Wet Dreams are generally defined aserotic dreams that culminate with an orgasm. They are very commonly associated with nocturnal emissions. An involuntary ejaculation that occurs when one’s asleep.

We now know women experience these wet dreams also, not as common or often as men.

When a female experiences a wet dream, the vagina becomes lubricated as she becomes sexually aroused in her dream. However, less liquid is produced by females, leaving less evidence she has had a wet dream.

Women can have wet dreams from the age of 14 for the rest of her life. Your body responds to sex asleep the same way it would if you were awake. There is a fortunate increase in involvement as the dream progresses.

Females and wet dreams

First and Foremost female wet dreams are not rare nor harmful, but perfectly normal

Actually women who experience these dreams, wish they could have them more. Wet dreams and fantasy’s are a way for us to explore the forbidden.

A means for us to explore our sexuality without actually acting on it.

We don’t hear or talk very much about female wet dreams primarily because it is much more common in males, with a greater focus on male sexuality both in science and people in general.

It is also perfectly normal for a woman to not have an orgasm in her sleep or know she has had one.

It’s noteworthy to mention, a female wet dream cannot be directly compared to that of a males.

Women rarely ejaculate fluid at the point of orgasm (there are exceptions-however, that’s another Hub someday) like men.

But women do have nocturnal orgasms, just not as frequently as men. Women who do have orgasms during sleep, usually have them several times a year.

Some History and Stats-The Facts

In 1953, Alfred Kingsey, the famous sexuality researcher, found that nearly 40% of the 5,628 women he interviewed experienced, at least once, a wet dream by the time they reached 45 years of age.

A smaller study in 1986, in the Journal of Sex Research, found that 85% of the women who experienced nocturnal orgasm had done so by the age of 21.

Some even before the age of 13.

Who has Wet Dreams?

40% of women have at least one wet dream by the age of 45. This compares to males at 80%.

It does not mean you lack in sex or have an overactive sex drive.

Sometimes a show or movie that arouses you may trigger this dream. I suggest you watch it again, curl up with a Teddy between your legs and see what happens.

Fewer than 10% of women compared to 50% of men report having wet dreams more than 5x a year.

Men often experience their first orgasm during a wet dream, where women rarely have an orgasm except by sex or other means first.

 

Why do wet dreams occur?

Doctors are not 100% sure why wetdreams occur but there are some arguable theory’s.

  • while asleep the body is actually experiencing what it is dreaming

  • for males, due to a build up of sperm and need to ejaculate

  • testosterone drugs increase the number of wet dreams

  • according to web.md, during an 8 hour period males will get an erection 6-8 times and females will lubricate the same number of times

  • once asleep the body goes through checking test of sexual body parts

 

When do wet dreams occur?

 While we are sleeping, our bodies enter a state known as REM ‘rapid eye movement’. This period can last from a few minutes to a half hour.

 This is the point to which sleepers have the most vivid dreams.

 Wet dreams most often occur during this REM sleep.

How often do wet dreams happen and are they safe?

There is no average number of how often wet dreams occur. Some have reported having these every few months while other women more rarely. There are also those (much fewer) who have reported having wet dreams every few days.

There are some 60 % of women who will never experience a wet dream at all.

Interestingly enough, it is a known fact that women who sleep in longer have more wet dreams than women who don’t. This due to the fact there is more time to allow for REM sleep.

Lastly, wet dreams are completely safe and cause no harm or effect to any part of your body in a negative way. If anything they are extremely healthy for the mind and body and overall feeling of personal sensuality.

So………..

I hope tonight you eat well, have a full tummy, watch a favorite movie with Brad Pit or Ron Jeremy, whichever your preference, tuck in early, don’t forget the Teddy, set your alarm for an hour later in the morning, think erotic thoughts, and hope for the best.

Sweet Dreams my Female Friends.

I’m trying to find out how to write like me


My life as a white, female drug dealer, with all the elements excluding the audiobook which will take a little longer to complete.

First the Novel‘s trailor in video;

VIDEO for novel promo

Revised Cover

Don’t judge a book by it’s cover.  This novel is far more than a story about a drug dealer.  It is delivered however by it’s core context through the eyes of a girl named ‘SKY’ who sadly is also an addict.  She kindly let’s us accompany her along her journey to the gates of insanity due to drugs, no direction as a child, a desperate search to be loved, trying to feel normal, when violence never left her life since the age of 8.

Amazing to be alive today, she hopes sharing her chaos and consequences may touch someone who needs to know they are not alone and there is hope.  We all have a story, and when we share a little bit of ourselves we never know who, but almost always help someone else.  She thought she never had a chance.  And look at her today, no known explanation, but she is sharing her story as hard as it may be.  She is learning that writing is very healing.  She has just begun.

Some Reviews;

What an amazing story … I saw the size of you … and couldn’t help wondering how unbelievably strong, brave, courageous and determined you were to stay alive despite all of what happened to you! I am truly in awe of you? You are a true survivor!  I agree that there is a reason why you were able to survive all of what happened to you … your book is the first step.
I so enjoyed reading it … once I got a chance to start … I could not put it down.
Absolutely, you need to share your story in the high schools … and I urge you to make contact with CAMH as I know that they welcome clients to share their stories on many levels.  I think your idea to bring it to the high schools where you get to address the “youth” is a must do.  Think of how many teenagers you can reach … girls that may have experienced or are experiencing what you did … by telling your story you will encourage young girls to speak out against rape and/or any other criminal behaviour towards them!  It will also make teenage boys think twice and/or be more aware of how unacceptable that kind of criminal behaviour is unacceptable and “girls” will speak out against them to prevent others from being hurt – and that there are consequences.  (The same goes for any boys that may have been invaded in the same way.)
THANK YOU for sharing your story with me … my “food addiction” and “unemployment status” in comparison with what you have endured in your life since the age of 8 … helped me to get a better focus on my life … I have lived in a “glass house”.  I am grateful especially for the richness I have stemming from family (my backbone) and friends.
You are an amazing woman …
I will pass your book along

As I read this, I wanted to jump right into the story and help this lost child. Well written. I will be looking forward to the next chapter.
  • Anonymous

Where to begin? This book is both compelling and shocking. The author pulls no punches and takes the reader on a journey; an honest, brutal journey which examines the nature of drug addiction and mental illness. Rarely have I come across a book which is thought-provoking, tragic, violent, uplifting and educational…all at the same time.

Frankly, not only was I unable to put this book down, I was also unable to stop thinking about its content for several days after reading it. If you only buy one book this year, make sure it’s “My life as a white, female drug dealer.” Not only is it the most important book this year so far, it will change your perspective about the life of an addict, forever.

The rest of reviews and available in eBook format and softcover format can be found on facebook, amazon, smashwords, LuLu and createspace, then also distributed for sale at Barnes and Noble, Kobo, apple, Diesel, kindle, etc.
I hope I have included what needs to be said, in this one post finally!  Thank you for your patience as the scattered newbie in me is trying to find my voice.
Two poetry books of a series are also available just the same as above.
I MUST add, all graphics and the execution of this video were designed and formatted by Chris Harrison, Creative Director.
Thank you and have a safe 24!

Desperate denial


I need to know you’re out there still

To know you’re searching for me

How insecure I have become

Since our days of being free

Every night when I retire alone

I close my eyes knowing

I will have to wipe my tears away

These tears keep on growing

It is a lie time heals all wounds

My time I had with you

Never can I let my heart heal

I’m scared that’s all I can do

If I stood outside

And stared above

Would you show me

Or maybe bring me my love

I am ignorant to think so

As someone would bring him home

He never meant to create a crowd

And suffers now all alone

He shot his brother

By mistake at home

Now running for life

Trying to become unknown

He must be fearful

As all he’s known

Is structure and kindness

To the bone

His loss of many

That they will kill him for

Innocent now absent

Guilty at war

Only time can help me

As I pray to defend

He will try just once

To come home again

His scent still strong

And clothes on the shelf

Toothbrush remains

With everything else

I hurt to hope

I cry to feel

Knowing this heart

Can never heal


Validation for writers doubt


Hello,

I refuse to stay in this place, we all have moments of feeling exhausted from very hard work and needing some validation in return.

That validation could tell me I touched someone, I wrote a good Novel, I am unique, most of all to remember I am a writer.

I was just thinking of a few things that can turn this slump into a self animated solution.

Writing is such a lonely job, but…………………….

  1. I absolutely need to remind myself I love it, truly can’t imagine my life without it.
  2. if I write for myself first, I can drop business and success expectations that weigh heavy on my mind.
  3. Doubt– I have to remember with any project so dear to ones heart and does creatively take all you have, doubt is normal.  Give myself permission to have doubt then remember points 1 and 2 and rid of doubt.
  4. Successful writers write
  5. I have to remember to stop predicting if my Novel is well received and that sales are no indication of this.
  6. Stop feeling sorry for myself by not understanding where my novel will go.  I may never know.
  7. Writers block is part of the craft.  In fact it is during these black outs I write the most-about nothing-then suddenly I find I am writing and the block lifts.
  8. Obsessive I am and have spread myself to thin by the number of writing sites I write for.  I must force myself to let many of them stand still while I pick my favourite three and work with those.
  9. As hard as it is for me I want to start talking with other writers share knowledge and get to know writers to talk with in general.
  10. Lastly, I must take breaks starting tomorrow :o) as I never do.  Walk away from the computer and do something not related to writing, including thinking about it.

Here’s hoping…………………

really hoping

Thank you

How to become a writer


Kid Rock – Roll On (Full Version) (Video)

How to become a writer has one critical step in doing so.  How to remain a writer has certain criteria at least that I must live by, to sustain being a writer.

http://hubpages.com/embed/video.php?vid=553&w=640

Firstly I was taught this and it changed my life.  Just as I loved writing my whole life I easily labelled myself as a broadcast producer for Advertising given my full time career.  Not that I didn’t love it just inside I dreamt of being a writer.  Another producer was concerned and kind enough to ask me what is on my mind.  I expressed my wish to be a writer.

She told me to repeat after me “I Kmberly Gray am a writer”  Three times.  She paused and asked me if I believed it.  I responded ‘absolutely’  Guess what she said, “your a writer, now take pride in your dream and never let anyone tell you otherwise.”  I asked her what to do next, feeling vulnerable and she simply said “that’s the beauty of being a writer.  What happens next is up to you.”

So there I was supposedly a writer, and as you know looking into a black hole wondering your worth the experience or good enough to share it.  Regardless, I was a writer.

I quickly and fearlessly learned how to sustain a writers career; accept being broke, cherish the writing community that is so supportive and apparently every moment possible, write,  YAHOO!


I have no job, and keep odd hours


Well, it’s just occurred to me now after all these years I really do not have a job and have kept odd hours just as long.  Like most writers I work alone and at night (almost 4am now)

I was told successful writers, write and that in order to sell books, I need to write them.  I chuckle at the simplest of things that are important and I loose sight off in my frenzy rush to accomplish little.  I am glad I write for me and not money but the exposure I am spending each opportunity to increase.

My longwinded point, rather request is to ask you in your opinion could you please help me with something. 

I am certainly not asking you to find my novels audience, and it has been weeks of posting and I am absolutely sure I have not hit it yet.  My question is do you have any advice or suggestions as to how I can tighten down my target to a specific 1 or 2 groups?

Oh Boy!  :0)

 

Thank you

Kimberly
