6 Reasons Love Making May Help You Live Longer

20130830-174038.jpg

Earlier this summer, a British psychologist released research showing that regular sex can make you look seven years younger. But why is it, specifically, that getting frisky between the sheets leads to a longer, healthier life? We decided to have a look at the research. And there’s plenty of it.

As a result, here are six ways sex keeps you younger and healthier. Have anything to add? Let us know in comments.

1.Even just thinking about sex Improves your cognitive abilities. Dutch researcher Jens Förster found that the release offered by sexual gratification can promote brain growth. Even those who just had sex on their mind performed better on critical thinking exercises. Princeton University research also has showed that sex can stimulate the brain.

20130830-172609.jpg2.Sex improves stress levels. Studies show that people who have sex also exhibit lower blood pressure in stressful situations.

3) Sex stimulates the immune system. Wilkes University researchers in Pennsylvania found that those who have sex once or twice a week enjoy greater levels of an antibody named immunoglobulin A (IgA) than those who have sex less often. So the next time you feel a cold coming on? Have sex.

4) Sex reduces heart disease. Research shows that men who have sex at least twice a week can cut their risk of heart disease in half.

5) Sex offers pain relief. Not only do studies show that sex can reduce headache pain, but Dr. George E. Erlich, an arthritis specialist in Philadelphia, found that 70 percent of arthritis sufferers reported less arthritis pain after sex. Sexual arousal stimulates the adrenal glands to produce more cortisone, which reduces the inflammation that causes pain in joints.

The love making being discussed here is strictly for married lovers while the singles can read and learn how to improve their love life’s after marriage!

Young Woman Aims to Make World Record by sleeping With 100,000 Men Around the world

I read this incredulous story with disbelief and decided to share with you all . what do you think will propel this young lady to embark on this sexual escapades in the name of fun? fame or money?
A 21-year-old Polish girl has told how she aims to sleep her way into the record books – by bedding 100,000 men around the world.

20130828-191816.jpg
Randy Ania Lisewska – from Warsaw, Poland – told her Facebook followers she plans to sleep with men in every city in the world for her sex marathon.

“I want men from Poland, Europe and all around the world. I love sex, fun and men,” she explained.

“In Poland the subject of sex is still taboo and anyone who wants to fulfil their sexual fantasies is considered a deviant, a whore or mentally ill,” she added.

Ania says the marathon began in Warsaw last month and won’t stop until she reaches her total.

“I will visit every city in Poland and when I’ve done all of them, I will start travelling abroad.

The fun will take about 20 minutes per person, depending on how many people there are on each day,” she explained.

“God saved me from being a prostitute” – Read Mercy Johnson’ s heart felt letter

Mercy Johnson Okojie had really touched my heart with her passion and zeal in helping the poor and less privilegeds in the society through her foundation . Sweety,am so proud of you and pray for God to guide and see you through in this project! Wishing you a wonderful Birthday today! 20130828-185025.jpg

In marking her 29th birthday today, Nollywood actress Mercy Johnson decided to write a heartfelt letter to her fans.

Read letter below:

Today, I thought of many things I would love to have as birthday gifts and the many dreams I’m still pursuing.
In all of this I’m not losing sight of the fact that if not for God I might have ended

up on the street like the many kids and young adults begging for food and some prostituting to make ends meet.

If we know the circumstances that force some of these people on the street
we would spare a thought for them. I am where I am today purely by the grace of God and the grace of the people who believed in me from the word go.

Recently, I was at the Boys Reform Oregun,Lagos,the discussion I had with the principal Mr. Kotun and much later with the Special Adviser in charge of all remand homes in Lagos set me thinking about the boys and girls on the street.

They have dreams too. Can they fulfill those dreams on the street? The answer will likely be no because I won’t be where I am today if I had ended up on the street.
20130828-184724.jpg

For this reason, Mercy Johnson Foundation will be doing a lot to get kids off the street. We are not asking people for funds. I will do all I can with the resources God has given me, and with the support of my husband to help get these kids off the street and set them on the path where they can begin to pursue their dreams.

I want to plead with people, fans, friends and colleagues to spare a thought for the
children on the street.

We can begin by educating people around us, parents, the children and people
people in charge of children (Oga-house help relationship, teacher-student relationship, and others) on the need to treat every child like the future of Nigeria depends on it.

And truth be told,our future will not be all that enjoyable if we let the scourge of ‘street-children’ fester. By then, the rich will begin to cry.

I learnt Lagos State Government has 11 homes where most children picked from the streets are kept, reformed and reunited with their families after counseling.

That is an initiative Mercy Johnson Foundation will be supporting and beyond that we will be going to different states to help spread the message – Get kids off the street, save the future.

From tomorrow, I will begin to replay some of the lessons I learnt at the boys’ reform home and we all can contribute to getting the kids off the street.

I am grateful to everyone that has sent in a birthday message tweet and gifts. When I get back, let’s have twitter party. Thank you and God bless you.

Mercy Johnson Okojie.

Gracious Grace Fashions And Styles:My 1k loafers lol(Gossip mode activated)

20130827-165529.jpg

On Sunday I decided to pay my friends a visit in the evening hours and was at a loss on what to put on . I needed something simple and immediately I remembered my bend down and buy loafers I bought last weekend on a road side somewhere in Lagos. #supriseeeeeeeed#? Nope,don’t be my Dears. I saw a woman shouting “buy your shoes 1k 1k ,I edged closer and my eyes fell on this beautiful pink/blue/white loafers and I bought it ASAP cos i did not wanna change ky mind about it and fiaaam i left with my parcel neatly wrapped in my bag.I now rocked it with my long pink chiffon top with black pants(tight) and my black bag with silver accessories ! Waka don ready! Gbam!!

Yes oooo! Your very own GG bought the loafers and I couldn’t care less if it decides to do magic or disgrace me later as am rocking it now.

20130827-165736.jpg
After I bought it,I tried to compare it with other expensive loafers I’ve purchased in recent pasts but the difference as per design wasn’t much except of course the quality and durability. Aba people are simply too much when it comes to making of footwears and clothes: though I can’t say my loafers is Aba made or Italian made,GG is ain’t bothered for now! After all if I no tell you how you for carry Sabi? I can still form bought from shop rite at 50k levels,all follow na! Lol

But make una weigh my loafers na,abi e no make sense especially on the attire ? Talk true ooooo! Lol

JONATHAN: PROMISE FULFILLED AS HISTORIC INTL FLIGHT LANDS IN ENUGU:Princess Stella Oduah-Ogiemwonyi

20130827-134456.jpg

Saturday, The 24th Of August will forever remain golden in the hearts of Nigerians especially South Easterners as the first historic international Airline-Ethiopian Airways lands at Enugu Airport carrying 155 passengers from Addis Ababa!href=”https://graciousgracegardens.files.wordpress.com/2013/08/20130827-133740.jpg”>20130827-133740.jpg

Indeed this is a great feat under the leadership of pretty Ms. Princess Stella Oduah-Ogiemwonyi,the Minister of Aviation. She had indeed proven herself to be able and capable and we are indeed grateful to her and our amiable President,Goodluck Ebele Jonathan!

Hear the amazon speak:
“During my campaign for election as President in 2011, one of the promises I made to Nigerians was to bring about transformation of the national economy. This promise is being delivered in the South East Geo-political Zone through, amongst other key interventions; the transformational work going on not only here at Akanu Ibiam International Airport in Enugu, but also at the Sam Mbakwe International Cargo Airport, Owerri”- President Jonathan declared on Saturday, May 18, 2013 during the Foundation Laying/Commissioning Ceremony of the remodeled Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu.

Ms Stella: “Indeed, President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan’s Transformation Agenda is getting full expression in the Aviation sector not only in the renewal of airport infrastructure, especially Terminal rehabilitation and upgrade, but also very poignantly for the people of the South East, as the first international flight operated by Ethiopian Airlines lands at the Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu today, August 24, 2013.

For the people of the land-locked region and it’s environs stretching to the South South and parts of the Middle Belt, it has been a long dream come true; almost like a Long Walk To Freedom. Although the Enugu airport had in fact borne the name ‘International’ since it was officially so designated on December 17, 2010 by then Acting President Jonathan, all hope of actually playing host to international flights had remained forlorn for the people of the region-until today, that is!

When the President rolled out his Transformation Agenda with promises of a new dawn, a lot of hopes were expectedly raised. Now those hopes have crystalized into reality for people from the South East zone who were assured that the Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu, would truly answer its name in the lifetime of the Jonathan Presidency. This is concrete proof that this President keeps promises once they are made.

20130827-132837.jpg
This historic international flight, perhaps the first since after the Civil War, is both symbolic and revolutionary. It symbolizes the end of an era where an entire region was almost shut out from the rest of the world, literally speaking, to one where the same enclave is now open to a new and exciting world of endless possibilities. According to President Jonathan, “the South East Region of Nigeria, with this international airport, can confidently say to the world ‘we are open for business’! The region and it’s environs is indeed open for business. This inaugural flight is equally revolutionary as this singular development will certainly change the way of life of the inhabitants of the region, forever.

Before now, anyone residing in the zone and hoping to embark on international trip to other African, Asian, European and American countries had to suffer the agony of traveling to either Port Harcourt, Lagos, Abuja or Kano not out of choice but compulsion, to catch a flight. President Jonathan lamented this much at the same occasion when he stated thus:

20130827-133215.jpg
There was a very good reason for the decision to confer international status on this airport. As I am sure you all know, Enugu is the gateway to the South East Region, the home of entrepreneurship in Nigeria. With such a large number of enterprising people with a huge propensity to travel both within and outside the country pursuing various business interests, people of this region have always had to travel first, either to Lagos, Port Harcourt, Abuja or Kano in order to be able to travel out of the country on business trips.

” As business people, speed and time are of the essence. Thus the ability to travel directly to your destination abroad or as directly from your base as possible, increases the speed of your transactions by reducing the time you spend traveling to and from there. The same applies to goods procured abroad and air-freighted into the country for business purposes. The more directly imported goods can be air-freighted to the region for its businessmen and women, the faster their goods and products can get to the market”.

20130827-133724.jpg

<a
The President could not have said it more succinctly. Interestingly, all this lamentation and agony is over. Ethiopian airlines, taking full advantage of world-class infrastructure at the airport, has banished all that agony and misery to the trash can of history as a whole new experience unfolds.

For a people known for their industry and enterprise, the opportunities which this international airport offer for the socio-economic development of the region are huge and boundless. With a large population of international businessmen and entrepreneurs, the zone could not have asked for anything better. Gone are the days when businessmen from the zone would endlessly agonize how; having cargoed or ferried their goods from far-flung parts of the globe to either Lagos or Abuja, would face the fresh Herculean task of clearing and moving them, mostly by road to the South East. Additional expense had been incurred, goods and lives even lost in this highly perilous journey from Lagos and Abuja to the east. With Ethiopian airlines now offering direct international flights from Enugu to almost any destination in the globe, the world is truly in the pocket of the South East. A new dawn is here. The world has in fact come to the east!

That is not all, neither is it even scratching the surface. The multiplier effect of the value chain that would be created as businesses spring up in and around the airport and the city of Enugu beats every imagination. The commercial offerings would not only boost the economy of the zone but also create thousands of jobs. The hospitality industry in the area is sure to witness a resurgence and boom. Commerce, which is the major preoccupation of the peoples of this zone would begin to boom as the Onitsha and Ariaria International market, Aba begin to play host not only to the local folks, but also to a wider international business community. This is also not talking about the huge opportunity for easy export of manufactured and agricultural goods. The local manufacturer in the remotest part of Aba and Nnewi and the rural farmer in Arochukwu would be exposed to the international markets as flights take off and land in Enugu from all corners of the globe. The possibilities are indeed endless, with the airport amongst the 13 also designated as perishable cargo airports in the country.

The vision of Mr President could not have seen the light of day without the drive and boundless energy of the Minister, Princess Stella Adaeze Oduah. Under her watch, the entire aviation sector in Nigeria has been transformed from the once neglected, rustic and decrepit landscape to sprawling, edifying and dignifying architectural show-pieces that compare favourably with airport terminals anywhere in the world. But as Oduah has consistently maintained, what we are witnessing today in Enugu is just the beginning; more and more landmarks are underway. From what we have seen so far, we have no reason to doubt her.

For Ethiopian airlines that placed the bet on Akanu Ibiam International airport, Enugu, we can only wish it to fly higher. Surely, it won't be long before other international airlines followed the Ethiopian example. For now, we cannot but agree with Mr President that the South East region is indeed "Open to the world for Business".
