Virtual Book Tour - Meet Megan Slayer, Author of Doc Cedarwood

GENRE: Contemporary, LGBTQ Erotic Romance




Can an accident and a rim job lead to lasting love?

Aiden Connor isn't looking for a date. Sure, he wants one, but relationships seem to be too difficult to maintain. He's an ER doctor and doesn't have time for commitment...that is, until he runs over a curb and needs a new rim for his sports car. The mechanic isn't anything like he expects, but could be the one man he needs if he's willing to open his mind and heart.


Matt Phillips equates dating with disaster, but sees himself as an eternal optimist. When he catches sight of Aiden, he wants to give relationships a try. Every cell in his body screams to get the sexy doctor naked and in his bed. But Matt has demons and addictions he's still working through. Will he fall prey to his past or learn and move forward with the hot doctor?

Maybe I’m dating the wrong men.

 

“I keep telling myself that. Jordan tells me the same thing, but I still want to clobber Farin when he goes Groomzilla on us. I wasn’t this bad when I married Jordan—at least I don’t think so. We walked, we stood, we said I do, then had one hell of a party at the house.” Colin shook his head. “I just wouldn’t have thought he’d be…like this.”

 

“It’ll be over in two days. You’ll live.” Aiden clapped Colin on the shoulder. “Speaking of days, I have exactly one day off before I’m expected back at the hospital. I’m on for an eight-hour shift on Saturday, so if I’m running late, that’s why.”

 

“We’ll keep an eye out. Thanks for the heads-up and thanks for talking to the group. Have a good night.” Colin winked, then strode away.

 

Aiden grabbed his jacket from the coat rack. The weight of a twenty-four-hour shift had gotten to him. He wanted to go home but wondered if he’d make it. As he navigated through the halls of the hospital, he waved at a couple of the nurses and, in the foyer, nodded to the elderly woman behind the main counter. The moment he stepped into the chilly October air, he blinked and dragged a long breath into his lungs. Nothing worked to wake him up like crisp fall evenings. Well, nothing like those and a good blow job in the morning, but he wasn’t likely to get one. He’d need a boyfriend first. He’d worry about his lack of a partner later. Right now, he wanted to go home, slip into a warm bath or hot shower and collapse for twelve hours straight. Maybe he would meet someone at the wedding or reception.

 

Maybe hell will freeze over first.

Don’t Allow Family Members to Rain on Your Relationship by Miss Know It All

Miss Know It All  

It is usually a given that some family members will try to interfere with your relationship by providing unwanted advice about the person you have selected to be your significant other. While some members mean well, others can create havoc by spreading rumors or lies about your partner. A few will go so far as to say they saw your man or woman engaging in some sexual activities, which may be far from the truth due to resentment.

I enjoy watching the reality TV court show: Couples Court with the Cutlers, who are married attorneys, where couples come to court to find out if their lover or spouse is cheating by taking a lie detector test. Some of the reasons folk give for suspecting their partner of cheating can be hilarious, like sniffing a man’s private part or finding condoms or a woman’s panties in a car. Sometimes a family member has supposedly seen the person cheating, yet the lie detector will indicate no cheating. Most of the time, the relationship will become stronger through counseling; in some cases, the bond or family liaison will end because people refuse to mind their own business.

It is That Time Again - Thank You for Your Continued Support


Who knew 2020 would be a year that the world would be facing a Coronavirus pandemic, a year that we would never forget. We would be facing a lockdown, wearing face-coverings, practicing social distancing, and washing our hands often to prevent the spread of COVID-19, a virus that has already claimed millions of lives worldwide.
As of December 4, 2020, there were around 65.6 million global cases of COVID-19. Over 45 million people had recovered from the disease, while there had been around 1.5 million deaths. The United States, Brazil, and India have been among the countries hardest hit by the pandemic.


Yet during these uncertain times, you have continued to be there for One World Singles Blog and we will keep on being there for you, bringing witty, entertaining, and informative articles on dating, romance, relationships, and other topics of interest.

Safety Tips for Holiday Gatherings

Between now and January, there will be over 200 worldwide festivities, which will be different this time because of the Coronavirus pandemic and the swell of COVID-19 infections in some locales.

 

We may not be able to observe our favorite festivals the same way as we did in the past, but we can get creative and begin new methods of rejoicing by following these safety tips:

 

·    If you plan to attend a holiday party outside your local community, check the percentage of positive tests in the area you are visiting to evaluate the risk of infection. If the percentage is high, you may want to rethink going to the party. (A higher percent positive may mean more people in these areas are infected but who have not been tested yet.)

 

·    Since the onset of the Coronavirus pandemic, the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) has recommended gatherings be limited to small numbers, and this continues to be the case for holiday gatherings. This is true when attendees are not able to-socially distance; there is a high level of contact among attendees, and people do not wear masks. However, If there is ample room to socially distance, contact is limited, and everyone wears a mask, these steps help reduce the risk of infection or spread.

 

·    Although not every COVID holiday party can be held outside, the CDC continues to recommend outdoor gatherings over indoor gatherings because the ventilation is better. To warm up outdoor settings, use fire pits, chimneys, or space heaters. However, if you plan to host or attend an indoor holiday gathering, look for ways to increase ventilation, such as opening windows and doors to improve airflow. Also, limit the number of attendees to avoid crowded rooms that could turn hot and stuffy. That type of environment concentrates airborne particles generated from tiny respiratory droplets. If someone is infected with COVID, the indoor air can become contaminated with the virus and inhaled by others.

 

·    Following the CDC’s recommendations for social distancing and wearing masks can help reduce the risk of Coronavirus infection and spread among attendees at holiday gatherings. Although it will not be as cozy as previous holiday celebrations, the goal is to protect everyone at the party while still having a good time. To encourage everyone to wear a mask and have fun, hold an “Ugly Christmas Mask” contest along with or instead of an “Ugly Christmas Sweater” contest.

 

·    Set out pump-top bottles of hand sanitizer for all attendees to use frequently, and encourage them to wash their hands often if possible. Provide disinfectant wipes so partygoers can wipe down door handles, utensils, countertops, and other high-touch surfaces to help stop the spread of germs. Set a good example by using these items yourself throughout the party, and encourage others to do the same. Normalize this behavior so everyone feels comfortable.

 

·    Potlucks and buffets are very popular during holiday gatherings but should be avoided at any holiday party this year. If you plan to serve food, choose one person to serve the food, and prepare drinks to limit how many people are touching utensils, beverage containers, and glasses. Consider single-serve or grab-and-go options instead, such as mugs of chili, individual bags of chips or crackers, single-use containers of dip, individual fruit cups, individually wrapped desserts, and bottled beverages. Another option is to ask guests to bring their own food and drinks.

·    During COVID, holiday travel continues to incur a high risk of exposure as you encounter more people outside your home or local community. As much as possible, socially distance from others outside your traveling party, and wear a mask while in public. Whenever possible, wash your hands using soap and water, and bring hand sanitizer for the times you cannot wash your hands. Also, do not touch your eyes, nose, or mouth unless you can wash or sanitize your hands before and after doing so.

 

·    While it will not, be the same having everyone, you love at your holiday gatherings, it is imperative for those people who are at high risk for COVID to stay home. This includes anyone at an increased risk of severe illness from COVID-19 or who may be experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, such as fever, difficulty breathing, or loss of taste or smell. Others who should not attend include anyone who may have been exposed to COVID-19 in the last two weeks, is waiting for COVID-19 test results, or is still recovering from COVID-19.

 

·    Just because you host every year, or you brought everyone’s favorite dish last year, does not mean you have to do the same this year. Everyone’s comfort levels maybe different, but there are many other ways to feel connected by opting to go viral.

 

·    If you are staying home, set the mood by decorating the table with your best tableware or try your hand at a family recipe.

 

The little things are what make this time of year feel so special, no matter where you are.

Foods That Can Enhance Your Sex Life


Image by LittleOldShop from Pixabay

With the holidays approaching, sex may or may not be the last act on your mind when shopping for gifts and planning festive dinners. It is a fact that certain foods can lead to a happy sex life. However, no two bodies are the same, so each partner may have different results when engaging in sex.

So, let us get this ball rolling, no pun intended, and lists the foods to eat before engaging in sex.


Avocado
- This creamy green fruit is loaded with heart-healthy fats and fiber that can deliver lasting energy in the bedroom. Avocado also has vitamin B6, which experts say can play a part to ease PMS symptoms like fatigue, bloating, and crankiness. All of that might help make it easier for women to get into a romantic mood. In Mexico, the fruit is considered an aphrodisiac. An old Aztec legend describes how young and beautiful maidens were kept in their rooms for protection during the height of the avocado season.


Chocolate - This is a no-brainer. Chocolate and romance go hand-in-hand. This sweet treat is linked with the release of serotonin, a hormone that encourages feelings of happiness and well-being. The mood boost that chocolate can bring may raise your sex drive, too. This indulgence also has many phenylethylamines, a brain chemical associated with lust and love.


Coffee or Tea
- These drinks deliver a dose of caffeine, which perks up your nervous system and help men perform better in the bedroom. Caffeine may lower your chances of erectile dysfunction, also. Coffee and tea also give you antioxidants that can help keep you healthy. Omit it close to bedtime. It could interfere with your sleep.


Fatty Fish
- Fish like salmon, sardines, and mackerel have plenty of omega-3s. These healthy fats ease inflammation in your body. That can help your sexual health.  If you are not a fan of seafood, you can also get omega-3s in flaxseed, chia seeds, and walnuts.

Maca - Native to the Peruvian mountains, the maca plant has been used for centuries to boost fertility. Today, research suggests that its root can improve sexual desire. Phytonutrients in the plant may raise sperm count and sexual function as well. Maca root is often sold as a powder. It has a nutty, earthy flavor. You can add it to your yogurt, smoothies, salads, soups, or baked goods.


Oysters
- are loaded with zinc, a mineral, which helps the body make the hormone testosterone and plays a role in your mood and sex drive. Zinc may also help men make more sperm. It might also help those sperm move better. If you are not a fan of shellfish, you can load up on other foods that are high in zinc, namely beef, pork, fortified cereal, pumpkin seeds, cashews, and yogurt.


Pomegranates - Throughout history, this fruit was a symbol of fertility and a sex enhancer. There may be some truths to these tales. Experts say that drinking pomegranate juice can boost your mood, improve your blood flow, and raise your testosterone levels. Those are all things that can turn up the flames in the bedroom.


Spinach - Not seen as a sexy vegetable, who knew this leafy green vegetable is a sex pick-me-up. However, it can increase your sex drive in many ways. Spinach is rich in magnesium, a mineral that can boost your testosterone. It also has iron, which can help desire, arousal, orgasm, and sexual satisfaction, particularly in women.


Strawberries
- Dipped in chocolate or topped with whipped cream, strawberries are a romantic favorite. They are high in vitamin C, which may help pep up your sex drive, boost blood flow, and ease stress and anxiety. It also helps your body release more of something called oxytocin, known as the “love” hormone because of its link to sexual arousal and orgasm.


Watermelon
- This juicy fruit serves up plenty of an amino acid called citrulline. Your body turns it into arginine, another amino acid that helps relax your blood vessels. That can get the blood pumping in your sex organs in the same way Viagra works to treat erectile dysfunction.
