So I went and read that report you referred to (or at least, what they said in the Washington Post about it):-

I must admit that some things do sound a little odd to me. For example, here is one passage from the Washington Post article:-

>“I’m not going hungry per se, but there are days I’m just not going to eat,” she said. “Today, I am kind of hesitant to buy food, because I have less than $100 and I need to do laundry. Do I want to do my laundry or do I want to eat today? That is the kind of question I’m dealing with.”

OK, so I'm a bit confused here. Does doing your laundry in a laundromat cost the best part of $100 in the USA?

Is food really so expensive in the USA? If I walk down to my local British equivalent of Kroger or Walmart I can easily find a 16 ounce frozen spaghetti bolognese or chicken curry with rice or shepherds pie that is going to cost me a pound (US$1.40 - and that's including tax) that I can quickly do in the microwave in four minutes without any problem.

Do these sort of things not exist in the USA? The spiritual home of fast food?

Then. I know that it can be a real pain to cook for yourself while at university - but there again I managed it living with three other guys and we didn't starve or live off take outs (apart from a Saturday night kebab [gyro for Americans] after a couple of beers).

I think that u/horse19 referred to this in another reply but it is certainly more than possible to live spending US$100-150 per month on food.

For example, there is an English food blogger, author and activist by the name of Jack Monroe (she's also done a TEDx talk here )

This is a bit about her on Amazon:-

>Jack was a cash-strapped single mum living in Southend. When she found herself with a shopping budget of just £10 a week to feed herself and her young son, she addressed the situation with immense resourcefulness, creativity and by embracing her local supermarket's 'basics' range. She created recipe after recipe of delicious, simple and upbeat meals that were outrageously cheap. Learn with Jack Monroe's A Girl Called Jack how to save money on your weekly shop whilst being less wasteful and creating inexpensive, tasty food.

and this is the blog:-

There is a similar author in the US that I'm aware of by the name of Leanne Brown:-

>Cheap Eats: A Cookbook For Eating Well On A Food Stamp Budget
>When Leanne Brown moved to New York from Canada to earn a master's in food studies at New York University, she couldn't help noticing that Americans on a tight budget were eating a lot of processed foods heavy in carbs.
>"It really bothered me," she says. "The 47 million people on food stamps — and that's a big chunk of the population — don't have the same choices everyone else does."
>Brown guessed that she could help people in SNAP, the federal government's Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, find ways to cook filling, nourishing and flavorful meals. So she set out to write a cookbook full of recipes anyone could make on a budget of just $4 a day.
>The result is Good and Cheap, which is free online and has been downloaded over 700,000 times since Brown posted it on her website in June 2014. A July 2014 Kickstarter campaign also helped her raise $145,000 to print copies for people without computer access. And on July 21, the second edition was published with 30 new recipes.

It's also available on Amazon:-

Now before anyone starts saying that the recipes are likely to all be tofu and lentil burgers - no that isn't the case. I just had a quick check on her blog and one of the latest recipes was Sausage & Bean Casserole which, quite frankly, was exactly the sort of thing I lived on in university.

She claims that this recipe would feed four people at a cost of 60p (84 cents including tax) each. If this was a family of four with two children I could quite believe it but, if it were teenage guys living at university then it would probably only feed three. But there again, that still only works out at 80p (US$1.13 including tax) each.

I certainly remember that I had to be very careful indeed about what I spent my money on - are things really that significantly different nowadays? Or are students choosing Netflix over food?

Redensity ll in the tear troughs for undereye dark circles. Botox & fillers as needed.

Sunscreen is going to be your greatest ally. UV both damages elastin and causes loss of collagen synthesis. Look to asian or few euro brands of chemical sunscreens as superior to the chem filters in US options - biore aqua spf50+++ , avene spf50+++. Use them liberally - dont forget backs of hands, neck, ears, decolletage along with face. Asian cleansers and emulsifiers - haba lado HA cleansing foam, haba lado super plumping gel cream. Moisturizer - Dr jart ceramidin, CeraVe PM, for body PM - eucerin complete repair. BHA with SA, periodic use of differin ( OTC ) , topical retinoid cream ( prescription ). Your skin care routine need not be expensive just consistent to your skin type ( the joys of aging is it may decide to change without notice hehe thus my own list above ). Lots of high end skincare is complete garbage or equivalent to much cheaper drug store brands.

Diet - beware advanced glycation end products accumulation. Glycation occurs when a sugar molecule ( glucose/fructose ) binds to a protein generating AGEP that is absorbed from the gut and is pro inflammatory. Produced both endogenously ( high blood sugars ) and exogenously ( via foods ) . We naturally produce AGEP at a rate of 3-4pc a year as we age however the food will increase the rate of glycation thus advancing aging. Avoid sugars.

Maintain bone density and more importantly keep T levels healthy through weight lifting. Mobility exercises to keep supple. Move your body.

Someone already mentioned sleep. Sleep is critical in the health of your body. Do recommend reading -

I was told I don’t treat counter-parties with proper respect, so I went on an adventure operating as a servant to improve my social skills. I now recommend it to everyone.

Pair that experience with this book:

It looks big but the sides are very flexible and I found it very easy to insert it and no pain at all. Much easier than those damn silicone period cups, actually lol.

This is the one I used:

SOFTDISC - Menstrual Discs - Non-Reusable, Disposable Softcups - Enjoy up to 12 Hours of Protection - Fewer Period Cramps, Tampon and Menstrual Cup Alternative for Active Women 14 Disc Per Box

SBs in real life. lol, oh god...I remember getting a book called The Complete Idiot's Guide to Dating when I was in high school. I still have it somewhere. Thanks for reminding me. :)

MOJUMOJO Play & Joy InvisiLube Premium Silicone Based Personal Lubricant Capsule Beads (10 Capsules)

Or just regular lube would work!

I think it's great that you're advocating for female condoms, but a few updates:

u/malibijones · 2 pointsr/sugarlifestyleforum

> Then buy a male chastity device like this:

Learned something new today. I need to get out more often. :)

u/shjl · 4 pointsr/sugarlifestyleforum

I bought myself a copy of The History of the World, which so far has been great.

>I'm talking about the caliber of wealth that doesn't really take the train and just takes black cars or has their own personal driver, helicopter even, etc.


read this, may be hard work but worth it:

u/twisted222 · 2 pointsr/sugarlifestyleforum

It's exactly what it sounds like... it looks like a baggy/bigger normal condom, but is designed for the woman to wear. You can find them on Amazon (search for "female condom")... the only brand I've tried is FC2.

u/clownfacekillah · 4 pointsr/sugarlifestyleforum

I think this book might help you. See if you see yourself in any of the scenarios described.

u/red_hat25 · 5 pointsr/sugarlifestyleforum

Tell him you’re concerned for his health and suggest he do a sleep study. He likely has sleep anea. If he doesn’t have a cpap next time, pack earplugs.

I like this ones. They’ve become a necessity for me on trips.

u/FlyoverSD · 5 pointsr/sugarlifestyleforum

> And I also know that it isn't that he isn't into me, I know he is, but not ENOUGH to be thinking about me at random moments through the day.

Listen, you're kidding yourself. You say he travels a lot for work? You know the thing about that is it means he would spend a lot of time in airports and on airplanes (which, btw, have internet access now), so if you were a priority for him he has plenty of time to message you.

Read this book, it applies to SD's as much as any other men you are involved with.

For everyone who has mentioned those flexible menstrual cups, they’re called soft cups. You can wear them during sex.

u/bothsidesoftheplanet · 1 pointr/sugarlifestyleforum

Remember, everyone is born a virgin. We all have to learn at some point. Don’t be ashamed of your lack of experience.

As a basic sex manual, I highly recommend The Guide to Getting It On (

Do you masturbate, and do you know how to give yourself an orgasm? If not, or if you just want to get better, check out

> ...I am super horny... I really really want to have sex.
This enthusiasm is way more important than having X amount of experience, or having done A, B and C.

I have one SB who’s way more experienced, in terms of her “number” and in terms of the variety of stuff she’s tried, than I am. I have another SB whose “number” is 2 and has had about the same kinds of experience as you. I find them both incredibly sexy.

Finally, anyone who tries to sneak attack your ass is wrong and very inconsiderate. Don’t put up with that shit. Any halfway empathic partner will ask beforehand and respect your boundaries. Don’t settle for less.

u/lcsugar · 57 pointsr/sugarlifestyleforum

Both of you get tested. Also at the same lab, ask for a sperm-count test. Should be zero if he has had a vasectomy. Then buy a male chastity device like this:

Boom, now he can't have sex with other women. And you know he is STD negative and has no swimmers.

Now you can fuck without condom. Enjoy.
