My family has celebrated a reunion for 35 years. This year, my role remained the same as it was in past years. However, this year was very different for me. In my previous post, I talked about how dementia affected how I handled my responsibilities. In this post, I'd like to talk about how it affected my interactions with family members. Most of my more distant relatives did not know of my dementia diagnosis since I was diagnosed within the last six months.

the look in his eyes, sensed his nervousness, and I knew he was about to
disclose an STD. “I have oral
herpes, so the more you kiss me, the more chances you have of catching
it.” What a r...
Here are some terms you may hear when people talk about oral sex: Fellatio -- This is when a guy's penis is taken into a partner's mouth and licked or sucked. The testicles can be orally stimulated also. The guy can ejaculate inside the partner's mouth (followed by a spit or a swallow) or ejaculate outside it. Lots of guys love a good blowjob, and they love to watch their partners do it. Cunnilingus -- This is oral stimulation of the female's genitals. There can be licking and sucking of the clitoris and labia minora and thrusting of the tongue into the vagina. Some women also like having a finger inserted into the vagina or anus for extra stimulation. For some women, this is best or even the only way for them to have an orgasm. Analingus -- This is licking the anus. There are lots of nerve endings in the anal area that make licking that area pleasurable. That's what oral sex means -- now see what it means for you: If you don't have ora...
