Should my Child Watch this Movie: Figuring out Movie Ratings

These days going to movies seems like it requires taking out a small loan. Not only are ticket prices hovering around $10 each but popcorn and soda are approaching prices that the oil companies would be proud of.

On top of this, you are expected to decipher the movie ratings which can seem rather foggy at times. Is a movie that’s rated PG suitable for your four-year-old? How about a PG-13 movie? Should a child really be 13 in order to see it?

When trying to figure out if a movie is suitable for your child the best place to start his understanding what the movie ratings mean.

The Motion Picture Association of America has five official ratings for movies. These are:

G for general audiences
PG for parental guidance suggested
PG-13 for parental guidance strongly suggested for children under the ages of 13
R for restricted to children under the ages 18 unless accompanied by adults
NC-17 for no one 17 and under will be permitted into the theater.

You’re most likely to G rating on strictly children’s movies. These will be movies that have happy endings and are completely without violence or any sexually suggestive situations and language. These movies are absolutely safe to lets children of any age watch.

PG movies are more along the lines of a family film, something that both mom and dad and the kids will enjoy. PG films may have some low-level violence such as a fistfight, mildly sexually suggestive situations such as a kissing scene or is slightly stressful situations such as when the bad guy has the good guy in a tough spot. Most children over the age of eight are more than capable of handling situations they see on screen in PG films. Children under the age of eight may be either frightened by or unable to understand some of the situations that happened in a PG film, depending on the emotional age of the individual child.

PG-13 movies are meant for a slightly older audience than PG films. In PG-13 films you are likely to find higher levels of violence such as gunfights and blood, more sexually suggestive situations, though not overly sexual, such as long involved kissing or some fondling and more suspenseful and intense situations. PG-13 may also have explicit language such as curse words or descriptive sex words. Parents should think carefully and perhaps preview the movie before taking children under the age of 13 to the movie. That being said, most children over the age of 10 are capable of handling the situations and language seen in these movies.

R movies are meant for adults. Rated R movies may have extreme violence, sexually explicit situations, extremely intense situations or a lot of extreme language. R rated films may also show drug use or more serious criminal activity. Children under the age of 16 should not be permitted without adults. Technically, movie theaters are suppose to ID children and verify that they have an adult with them but most of the time this does not happen. Parents should probably not take children under the age of 10 to these movies. For children between the ages of 10 and 16, parents should give serious consideration as to whether or not the child is mature enough to handle situations found within the movie.

NC-17 is a relatively new rating. It was created to replace the generic X rating. It is unusual to find a movie in theaters with a rating of NC-17. Most filmmakers wish to avoid this rating as is considered by the public to be the same category as porn. While movies do receive the NC-17 rating due to extremely sexually explicit situations, the NC-17 rating is meant to help a movie viewer know the difference between a crafted movie with a developed plot and characters and a movie whose sole purpose is to show sexually explicit scenes.

Unofficially, there is a rating of X. This rating has been adopted by the pornography industry in order to indicate to a customer that the film they are buying contains extremely sexually explicit situations and has made for the sole purpose of showing those sexual situation. As most porn movies are released straight to video or are shown on only a very limited release, they are not subject to the normal rating system.

With all movies, parents need to consider the emotional maturity of their children when deciding if a child is old enough to watch the movie. Now that you understand a little bit better about the movie rating system, you should feel little more comfortable about taking your children to the movies. That is of course, if you’ve taken out a large enough loan in order to cover the cost.

Watching Adult Sex Videos Together – Movies Make Magic

Although they still have a stigma for many people, watching adult sex videos with your spouse can be a really great way to improve your marriage sex. Available in as many different varieties as there are types of people in the world, you can watch everything from very basic, “soft porn” as it is called to more graphic and experimental types of adult films. Sensual and erotic imagery is both visually and mentally arousing and may even plant an idea or two in your minds for what you would like to try with one another. Rather than being something that only single men watch in the dark, by themselves, while they masturbate, adult films are actually a really effective type of foreplay for many married couples.

Many couples may secretly want to watch an adult film together, but are hesitant because they are afraid to suggest it to their mate. For some women, there is a fear that their husband will find the women on film more attractive than they find them. For some men, there is concern that their wives may be turned off or find fault with their arousal. The reality is that watching adult films together can be a real bonding experience. It may take several tries to find a particular genre of adult film that works for you both, but in most cases, just the simple act of being “naughty” and watching other people getting physical is enough to start something fun for the married couple watching.

If you and your spouse have decided to watch an adult sex video together, then you should discuss what kinds of films are “OK” and which ones are “off limits”. For instance, your spouse may be uncomfortable watching a film that depicts more than one partner at a time. The object of watching an adult sex video together is to get one another turned on, not turned off, so be sensitive to one another’s preferences. One of the benefits of watching a sex video together is that you may get ideas for positions to try out. Also, having the noise in the background may also help lower your spouse’s inhibitions when it comes to expressing their pleasure vocally.

Fifty Shades Paves the Way for a New Young Adult Novel

Fifty Shades of Grey’s BDSM theme and sexual content may be too much for young adult readers, but it has provided the platform for an up and coming author to achieve success by creating a “toned down” version of the romantic relationship of Christian and Anastasia. Warner Bros has been chosen to make the movie version of the self published e-book, later picked up by a publishing house, Beautiful Disaster. Novelist Jamie McGuire modeled this book after Fifty Shades, detailing the tumultuous relationship between a college student and her domineering crush, but minus the kinky-sex and S&M. Following in the path of The Hunger Games and the Twilight, this novel turned screenplay takes an adult style story and makes it appeal to a younger audience. The audience for these types of movies and books creates an opportunity not only for aspiring authors to find their niche but also for a huge payoff.

It appears that romance stories are not enough anymore and that there must be a conflict, and a little naughty interaction, for them to be popular. With all three of the successful titles preceding Beautiful Disaster, there is at the heart, a huge hurdle for the main characters to get over in order to have the love they desire. Fifty Shades and the two other books in the trilogy provide not only the conflict of opposing worlds, but also the juicy details of Christian and Anastasia’s bedroom activities. The question is: will Beautiful Disaster live up to the demands of the success of its big sister?

One thing is for sure, Fifty Shades of Grey is much too racy for young adult readers, but as times have proven, these readers are hungry for more mature content… now more than ever. With each passing decade, children of younger and younger ages are becoming desensitized to violence and sex. Movies, television and fiction that is supposed to appeal to a young audience is inundated with adult jokes, violence and sexual innuendos, claiming to be more fun for the parents and meaning a bigger paycheck from the box office. Unfortunately, kids are not blind to the changes and are picking up on much more than they used to, nothing gets by wide and curious eyes. As the movie version of this young-adult novel comes to fruition, there will be a difficult task for the producers to keep from making an adult film with a young-adult rating.

Pornography As a Turn-On for Fun-Driven Adult Sex

Adventurous couples can buy a pornographic video and watch it together. That is generally a surefire way to end up in bed. In fact, it is usually when couples are in bed that they watch such films. And if the film is a good one they will enjoy being turned on as they watch it. Many couples find that the provocative content stimulates them to duplicate what is being viewed. They are impulsively driven to touch each other, kid around, mimic the sex acts, and swing from the imagined chandelier as they tickle each other’s fancy.

In many countries in the world, including most industrialized ones, pornography is not banned or hidden from view. For example, at King’s Cross district in Sydney, Australia a section of the city is designated to show and sell pornography Sex oriented videos, DVDs, books, sex toys, lubricants, assumed aphrodisiacs, are sold in kiosks and stores. Strip clubs, restaurants, massage parlors and other clubs are available to meet members of the opposite sex.

In Europe, in many countries, and cities pornography is not hidden and thus available for adults. In all the countries there are restrictions to the sale of pornography to children and prosecution of offenders is open and continuous.

In the US pornography is not banned from sale to adults although there is no tolerance on anyone abusing the Child Pornography laws.

But for the purpose of improving the sex life of adults pornography has a place for some. Do you have to be lonely or hard-up to use porn? The answer is No. Porn can be a substitute for sex for many lonely and sex starved adults, mainly men, and for adults without a partner who like visual stimulation for self-arousal.

Finally, let’s examine whether pornography can fit into the armamentarium of the average adult who wishes for increased stimulation for lovemaking. What can porno offer?
As with any movie there is added stimulation by watching real pictures compared to imaging such scenes. Some porno videos actually tell a reasonable story where there is more than just sexual exploitation. So some selection is necessary. Google is a good resource to discover what are considered the best sex videos made in the past few decades.

Beside adding visual stimulation couples can mimic what they see, learn about new positions, empathize with the excitement of the sex partners, imagine participating in the viewed sex, experience sex beyond their own interests, such as gay, bi, S and M, bondage, oral and anal sex, and the use of fetishes. Some show dancing, foreplay that could be stimulating and perhaps above all can act as a stimulus to open the viewers to become freer and lustier about sex.

If you attempt to try out the benefits of sex videos and it is new to you imagine becoming an adventurer and explorer so you don’t take a negative bias into your viewing. An open mind will allow you to gain what might be there for you. At the very worst it won’t have any effect on you and may even turn you off. If so, just chalk it up as another interesting experience.

To determine if pornography may be a stimulus for your personal sex life approach its use openly. It might be a new vehicle for greater enjoyment of sex for occasional use or even frequent use. Remember adults have no restrictions on what they mutually do and prefer behind closed doors. So enjoy the movies and enjoy the sex and know you have taken another step to gaining a new stimulus for sex and love.

Sex Toys & Relationships

The first step is to talk to your partner about the idea of incorporating adult toys into your relationship. You may have used sex toys in the past for your own personal use and may feel a bit skeptical and worried about how your partner will react to the idea of using sex toys, but do not be! My motto is if you do not ask you do not get, you will probably find they embrace the idea and you can begin searching together for adult toys. If they do not then you can always suggest starting off small with maybe a small finger vibrator or a bit of very light bondage but remember to explain to your partner that toys are a way to add a little spice to the relationship and will not be a replacement for your partner.

Many people will feel embarrassed about going into a sex shop and would not ask a member of staff for help or recommendations. So that is where online adult sex shops are perfect for searching together for adult toys with complete discretion and privacy. A good place to start is to find sex toys that you or your partner will not feel intimidated buy such as a finger vibrator, this way you can work your way up to bigger adult toys.

Once you both feel more comfortable using adult toys together, then you can try more exotic adult toys like bunny vibrators, flesh light toys and anal beads. As a note, it may be worth adding some lubricant with your purchase to stop any unpleasant friction.

When using toys for the first time, make sure you use it gently to find out how your partner likes it best then taking it up a notch, remember to always talk with you partner while using toys as this help to build communication in the relationship and you find out what presses you partner buttons.

As you experiment with different toys you can decide which ones are right for you as a couple. As you become more experienced you will gain enough trust in each other that buying adult toys as gifts will add a whole new excitement to your relationship both in and out the bedroom.

Adult Toy Stores – In Person Vs Online

Some of you might have made trips to those raunchy stores in the past and are looking for an alternative. Before you head to your local sex toy store, let’s go over the pros and cons of buying that perfect dildo, rabbit, or butterfly vibrator online.

Like most online shopping; a pro of buying your sex toys online, is that normally you can find better deals, sales, and coupons online. Very rarely can you find these deals in local shops; in fact they are sometimes double the price. The other advantage to buying your sex toys online is that you will have access to a large range of reviews by real people. Doing the proper research before blowing your money on your new vibrating friend is the smart thing to do. Heaven forbid you buy that new butterfly vibrator, or dildo and it doesn’t hit the spot for you!

Besides the obvious, it’s just more comfortable to shop online from home. Not that I am bounding you to your house by any means, but this isn’t like shopping for a new pair of sneakers. You will be more discreet and private when buying those intimate toys at home. Shopping online will allow you to share your inner thoughts and secret comments with your lover, as you sit side by side finding that perfect toy to make you explode.

Most of the online sex stores you find will now allow you to return your items if there is any problem! This is great news my friends, because most local shops will not take any returns. Although returning items might be a pain, taking the time to prepare and mail out the package. You won’t be feeling so bad when your new functioning or exchanged vibrator, dildo, or butterfly vibrator is buzzing.

My only personal con to shopping online for sex toys would be seeing how the toy functions in person. For me the intensity of vibration is extremely important. Thankfully now a lot of stores offer videos of products to give you an idea. We displays great videos of all of their products that have motion. In addition to videos reading the reviews can give you a good idea on how the product functions, intensity, etc. Plus, just watching how your new toy works and vibes might get you a little excited! So enjoy!

Overall I think that it would be better to make your purchase for that hot new butterfly vibrator, right in the comfort of your own home. You will be able to compare prices, look for discounts, and do it all while you’re sitting in your panties. Not only that but you will be keeping private, there is no reason why you need to run into your old high school gym teacher at the porno shop. So get your booty online, and find that dream toy!

Why Sex Toys Are Good For the Relationship

There are many misconceptions about the use of adult toys in relationships. Some people feel they cannot compete with something that does not get tired, or sore. Those people feel that a toy is going to be their replacement and that they will not be as desirable to their partner.

The truth is the best intimacy comes between two people that care for each other. Their truly is nothing that can replace the physical, emotional, and spiritual connections made during intimacy. As much fun as the jackrabbit 3000 is with its 42 functions and 10-hour battery, it still will not talk to you, it cannot read your body language, and you can forget about the pillow talk and cuddling when you are done.

The reason toys are beneficial is they promote communication between the couple. They also provide a sense of adventure, and the thrill of trying something new and unfamiliar in the bedroom. When used properly, toys can promote the growth and understanding of each others intimate needs.

With a vast selection of toys, there is something out there for you and your partner to try. From mild to wild, you can find something that will help take your relationship to a new and fun level. You have many options when looking for toys. There is no need to visit, “that” store off the highway exit. You can shop discreetly online, or you can host a party with your friends and get a chance to see, feel, touch, and taste the different toys, creams, edibles, and more in the comfort of your own home. You might even make some extra money at your party to pay bills or get a free toy of your own.

So before you dismiss the use of toys, know that they are not meant to replace anything, they are only meant to enhance you and your partner’s intimacy and adventure in the bedroom.

Houston Is A Transformed City After Dark

Rewind a decade back and we dare say that if someone suggested heading downtown Houston after dark, there would be many questions. There were not many reasons why one would actually leave the house for downtown.

Now, a decade later, the scene has changed. Everything’s so much more lively and fun downtown Houston. Charter bus, party bus or even luxury limousines are used for bar hopping adventures, bachelor parties or just a fun time with friends and family members. That is the kind of transformation that has seen Houston’s tourism industry growing by leaps and bounds. Tens of millions of people from out of town and foreign countries make their way here all year round. The pleasant year-long weather has a huge role to play for that decision.

A huge financial push in the real estate industry – One of the biggest reasons for the sudden tourism boom is the real estate industry. More people, more fun, more entertainment. Another great transformation is the pumping of funds into maintaining, developing and promotion of some of the largest tourist attractions in the city like the Minute Maid Park, Toyota Center and not to mention world class parks like the Discovery Green Park.

Bayou, where worlds meet – Although the public transportation system in Houston is mostly reliable and affordable, it makes more sense for large groups to make use of charter buses when visiting crowded attractions during the holidays. Wide acceptance of Houston’s growth was encouraging; hence the emergence of places like Bayou Place. Bayou is a vibrant place which was opened up in 1997 and measures, according to official stats, up to one hundred and thirty thousand square feet in total. It is the place where tourist can find all sorts of entertainment, including theaters, malls, comedy shows, restaurants, cafes, and night spots too. During peak periods, parking can be a huge problem and that is when using a Houston charter bus comes highly recommended.

Mosaic – DJing things up – If you are heading over looking for a fun nightspot, then consider Rocbar or Mosaic. These are DJ hot spots, which mean that there is often a showcase or showdown between talented DJs all year round. It is classy and casual at the same time. Big names in the DJ world has made their way here before in the past and who knows, you might get lucky and get to spend the night listening to a popular DJ spinning the songs out for you all night long while you enjoy your drinks.

Things have definitely changed for Houston and it is really more apparent during the night. No longer are the locals considered low-laying individuals with no time for partying, it is now a vibrant city filled with young people looking out for fun things to do too.
