The showgirl’s Guide to Maximizing Income

top-secret-mobile-phone-features

Yep, it’s true, a recent University of New Mexico study found that STRIPPERS WHO ARE OVULATING — and therefore most fertile — made an average of $30/per hour more than menstruating women, and $15 per hour more than women elsewhere in their cycles.  Now who’d of thought to run that study, hmmm?  Sure HIS parents are proud. 

In all seriousness, lets put this study to good use.  Maybe during this time of the month is when you should try asking for a raise, hint to your husband that you would like a diamond necklace or try and talk your way out of a speeding ticket?

For more information check out the study in Psychology Today where their slogan is “Here to Help.”

Completely Bare is offering an opulent bikini wax with 24k gold spray and Swarovski crystals to adorn your *ahem* for the big day. Er, night.

The Opulent Bikini Wax is available at all salons (it used to be available only at the flagship store). What will your “down under” receive? A full Completely Bare bikini wax, a 24k gold spray to give your skin extra shimmer and Swarovski crystals applied by hand in the design of your choice. There are also two limited edition designs: a red Swarovski Crystal Heart or your significant other’s initials. Here’s the best (or twisted) part. If you’re single, you can opt for a broken heart or a skull and crossbones. Hey, Jack Sparrow would dig it.

Have you Done your Kegels Today?

redbooklogotop10

Vaginal fitness made it on the list as one of Redbooks top 10 hottest health trends for 2009.  Now who’d a thunk it?  Well apparently it is all the buzz and for those of you who haven’t had kids read up and get prepared! 

According to Redbookmag.com “Vaginal fitness — including the tightening of the pelvic muscles, as you do with Kegel exercises -— is a new kind of workout goal. Though physical therapists already use Kegels and other therapies to treat pelvic problems such as urinary incontinence, there’s now a center devoted entirely to their teaching: Manhattan’s Phit spa (short for pelvic health integrative techniques) offers Kegel classes, surgery to tighten your vagina post-baby, and more. Lauri Romanzi, M.D., Phit’s founder and a clinical associate professor of gynecology at Weill Cornell Medical College, says keeping the pelvic muscles fit may give you better bladder and bowel control — possibly even a better orgasm.

Can’t get to New York? You can do Kegels on your own, for free: First, squeeze your pelvic floor muscles for five seconds. (To get the move down, try stopping your urine flow when you’re peeing. That’s the feeling you should have.) Then release them. Do this 10 times, then repeat.”

I’ve had friends say they do this while driving, so they next time you see a girl rising up in her seat and sitting back down, now you’ll know her little secret!

The other top 10 hot health trends are:

  1. Wii Fit – My personal favorite, now I have an excuse to play with the kids and not feel like I am wasting my time.
  2. FitFlop – My sister and mom actually got these and love them.  They actually claim to tone your muscles and reduce cellulite with every step.  Hey it’s worth a try, right?
  3. Superfruits – Loaded with antioxidants be sure to throw some exotic fruits on your next bowl of cereal.  Can’t find açai, check out healthy chocolate by Xoçai to load up on those free radical fighting fruits.
  4. Food (out) laws – Over the summer, California also became the first state to ban trans fats in restaurants, following the lead of cities like New York and Philadelphia, which passed similar laws in 2006 and 2007, respectively.  Also required is posting calorie information on menus, however, I think the key is don’t eat it in the first place!
  5. Skip the Salt – and reach for low sodium products.
  6. Google Health, Microsoft’s HealthVault and Revolution Health – The online banking of health.   Look for these to become more popular in 2009, not only to keep track of your records, but to flag drug interactions, and send appointment reminders.
  7. Diets Based on DNA – I have heard of diets by blood type, but this one is all new to me.  Obviously if your parents and grandparents were short and round chances are you will be too, but maybe we can reverse that trend and take our health into our own hands by stopping the diseases we are predisposed to before they happen.
  8. Take a Two-Wheeler – Here at SweetSpot Labs many of our employees are able to bike to work to save not only the environment, but get some excercise and keep some cash in their pocket instead of putting it in their gas tank.
  9. Detoxing – While some detox methods can be down right dangerous, ramp up on fruit, veggies, and whole grains — and forget any plan that tells you to skip solid food, with all its essential fiber, vitamins, and minerals.

Here’s to a healthy you in 2009 from the inside out!

Over It

by Jessica Golden

Do you obsess about your body?  I’ve been working really hard on maintaining a state of acceptance.  I’ve struggled with food, weight, and body preoccupation for years, and frankly, I don’t have it in me anymore.  I’m curious what some of the ways other women have dealt with these issues are.  What has helped you accept your body exactly as it is today, rather than how you’d like it to be next month?

Monthly Visitor

 

Did you know there is a site for all things related to your monthly visitor?  It is called Period-Products.com.  This is a great resource for all those daughters out there beginning womenhood and of course they carry our line of SweetSpot Labs products as well.  Not only is it a one stop shop, they have a very informative section on menstration and the menstrual cycle.  How cool is that, just sit your daughter down and let her read.  Much better than how I learned, which was by reading the tampon box!  Once she starts then have her sign up for our cycle diary, Spot Clock! and she will be all set.

Dreamlovers

by Cross Woodfield

 

Adam Brody caught me on the brink my ascent toward womanhood.  I was twelve, and Gilmore Girls was my religion.  He played Dave, the band-geek-come-rocker boyfriend of Lane, Rory’s cool Asian best friend.  It was love at first site.  I watched him every Tuesday and tried to look him up but, alas, with no other credits and a re-occuring role on an increasingly less popular TV show, he didn’t even have a website.  Eventually he scored the The O.C. as well as the feature film In the Land of Women, and I remained devoted to him, undoubtedly his number one fan.

 

I seriously considered writing him a letter asking him to be my prom date.

 

Eventually I moved onto Gael Garcia Bernal, Heath Ledger (may he rest in peace), and all the guys that Nylon Magazine would shoot for their street style sections.

 

And now I’ve started to wonder…I am a full-fledged, Sweet-Spot-loving woman, and maybe I should stop falling for fictional characters and celebrities I’ve never met.

 

What do you think?  Is crushing on celebrities only appropriate for adolescents, or is it a healthy life-long hobby for girls who need to spice up their daydreams?
