Dr Sid launches own chocolate cookie “INDULGE”

Celebrities launch shoe line, clothing line, beauty line etc but Mavin artist Dr Sid did something totally different…something no other Nigerian celeb has done. He launched his own quadruple chocolate cookie called Indulge. Indulge was unveiled yesterday Saturday February 9th in VI.

Indulge is a luxury chocolate cookie made with the finest Kenyan Cocoa powder, chocolate dough and Belgian chocolate. With a half coat of melted chocolate and a sprinkle of Belgian chocolate chips, the cookie is a treat of good chocolate and cookie love.

The bottom line is, you cannot think of love, delight, chocolate or valentine’s day without thinking of the indulge cookie. In Dr Sid’s words “why send flowers this season when you can send indulge and get the cookie *wink*”

congrats to him…..


5 Behaviors Women Find Creepy

In the early stages of a relationship, it’s surprisingly easy to give out a creepy vibe to women without even noticing. What can be perceived as regular behavior for anyone with whom you have an established relationship can range from obnoxious to downright frightening when displayed to a new woman you barely know. Here’s a list of 5 behaviors that might trip the creep-meter for women who are just getting to know you.

1. Being unable to read her signs
You see an attractive woman across the room, so you try to catch her eye. You walk past her. You look at her. You even sit next to her and try to make eye contact. No luck. Your next move should be to take the hint that she noticed you and isn’t interested. A man who refuses to accept this and continues engaging in a staring contest with a disinterested woman will make himself appear as as a potential stalker.

2. Aggressively trying to contact her
Many men seem to believe that they can prove their interest in a woman by chasing her down– calling, texting, emailing, and following up on each unanswered message with more. While it’s understandable that you want to get to know her better and you have many reasons for getting in touch with her, this behavior will only make you appear as a desperate man who is socially inept, insecure, and impatient. It’s probably best if you initiate contact no more than two times without any initiative on her part to return the gesture.

3. Dropping by unexpectedly
If a woman tells you what time she gets off work or class, that is one thing, but paying attention to and noting her schedule without her being aware of it will only scare her off. No one wants to feel like they’re being watched like a hawk. A woman you’ve just met won’t think it’s very cute when you are always waiting for her at the same time outside her work or dropping off surprises on her doorstep. She will quickly realize how closely you pay attention to where she is and what she’s doing, and will determine that you are a weirdo.

4. Mentioning sex at any point during the initial conversations
Most single women who’ve been dating for awhile want to filter out guys who are only after sex, so if you mention anything overtly sexual in your first few text messages, phone calls, or dates, you’re going to be seen as a “typical” guy who is only fixated on sex and creep her out.

5. Invading her personal space
There’s something about a guy assuming that he can move in close that women find so unappealing and creepy. It’s probably not a good idea to move into a new woman’s personal space until you understand her body language and get some signs that she is interested in that.

10 Mistakes Men Make in Relationships

We all know that relationships can be tough. They begin with an awkward dating period where both persons are on their best behavior. After a few months, those curtains start to unravel and you begin to see shadows of the real person.

Men often make a number of relationship blunders during these crucial initial phases, and we’re here to help you recognize the ten worst ones. If you’re just getting started in a relationship, or part of a long-term affair, get pen and paper. (Or, you could just print it!). You’ll want to keep track of these tips.

Giving a woman too much power.
Guys usually get into trouble when they allow a woman to have too much (if not all) of the control in a relationship. She decides when you go out; she decides when you have sex; she decides which friends you can keep; and may even decide what color slacks you should wear to a party.

These types of scenarios are classic examples of a man believing that he doesn’t deserve to be with a certain type of woman, or that he is in no position to make decisions on his own. If you’re a good man and deserve a good woman — you deserve a good relationship. Swinging the power surge closer to a 50-50 deal would be more beneficial for you. An even platform feels a whole lot better than a 80-20 deal — and you can’t afford to be on the 20 end of the spectrum.

Trying to invoke too much of your own control.
Even though it is not recommended that you relinquish complete control of your relationship to the lady in your life, you also should not hoard it all for yourself. Power struggles can create a competitive environment, and there is no place for competition in a relationship. Truth be told, most people like some level of control in their lives and this includes relationships with significant others.

You should definitely try to work within respectable levels when it comes to control. Whether it’s your heavy-handed decision-making or a demanding attitude — women don’t like controlling men and a controlling guy reeks of insecurity.

Believing that the good you do today will last until tomorrow.
Women have short memories. Flowers and candy mean that you love her today — but tomorrow is a new day and a new chance for you to prove your love all over again. A man tends to linger on his good motives and can’t understand it when his sweetie throws a hissy-fit while wearing the new dress he bought just three days ago.

Being a good boy scout doesn’t mean you are no longer obligated to do your chores. Keep doing the things you know are necessary for relationship success. Women appreciate good deeds, but they appreciate continuous good deeds even more.

Being domineering or overly possessive.
If your mate tells you that she likes possessive, egotistical, iron-fisted dictators – then you’re in for the perfect relationship — (If your name is Joseph Stalin). However, most women can’t handle the jealous types and no woman wants to be told what to do.

Biblical principles tell us that a man should lead. However, this duty assignment calls for an enormous amount of responsibility and maturity. A man should never believe that his mate is beneath him spiritually, or emotionally – and relationship bonds should not turn women into possessions.

Allowing family members or friends to dictate what happens in the relationship.
This is an absolute NO-NO. If you are married and allow your in-laws to have any measure of control over your relationship, you are undoubtedly treading on paper-thin ice.

Your wife should not be subjected to this either. Even if she allows you to take a bossy tone with her, she most certainly doesn’t appreciate it coming from your mama; your aunts; your cousins; or anyone else in your family. Women don’t like being told what to do (see Mistake #4), and it irks them even more when it’s coming from another woman.

You should not allow your wife’s family to make decisions that directly affect your relationship. Everybody has an opinion, but it’s the couple’s opinions that matter most. Outside opinions or ideas shouldn’t be used to influence your relationship bond.

Always kissing up.
She’s your beautiful queen. A sugar-dumplin’, honey-spiced, chocolate bunny pie. But she’s also a human being. Which means if she commands respect, she also has the ability to return it.

Some people deserve respect simply because they exist:

a) Your mother – because she’s a woman and ushered your nappy-head into the world.
b) Women in general – because they’re women and the Good Bible tells us that we’re supposed to be respectful of the female entity.

Outside of this basic level of respect, all other respect is earned. Don’t be so apologetic (unless you’ve really screwed up); don’t assume that she’s always right; and don’t take the blame for something that isn’t your fault.

More importantly, don’t place your lady on such a high pedestal that she forgets where the ground is. A truly level-headed sista wouldn’t want to be that high, and may eventually resent being in a relationship with a big pushover.

If you are not exactly where you want to be in your life (financially, academically, or spiritually) — it’s okay. Women tend to focus more on the future, so you shouldn’t worry about having the world in your palm when you first meet.

Over time, most women will expect to see some progress and eventually some results. Try not to sit idle as life passes you by. Even if you’re not the biggest fish in the pond, being tenacious and goal-oriented is all any woman could ask for. If she’s asking for more, you might want to reconsider who you’re with.

Choosing a woman based on appearance alone.
This is really dangerous, but all men know that it is difficult to look past the sexiness.

Physical attraction is extremely important, and men sometimes forget to investigate the other critical attributes they desire in a woman. Since we are from the ‘Planet of Imagery’, male judgment is often clouded in the beginning of a relationship. A man’s interest in physical compatibility may keep him from thinking about those other crucial attributes until it’s too late.

Don’t forget about essential qualities like compassion, compatibility, and whether or not she makes any sense when she speaks.

Placing someone (anyone) or something before your mate.
This includes friends, relatives (See Mistake #5), co-workers, animals, your car, or your hobbies.

Granted, there will be times when you would like to hang with the boys, or occasions when you have extra work to do on some new project. But those things should never hold more meaning than your relationship. When a woman feels that someone or something is more important than she is, you may have problems getting her to respond to anything you have to say.

Yielding to temptation from other women.
For some odd reason, women are frequently more attracted to men who are attached or already married. This isn’t a good thing if you’re in a strong relationship and have a weakness for lust. Your wife or girlfriend isn’t stupid — she knows that you can’t help but look at other women from time to time. But that’s as far as it goes.

If the tempter is cognizant of the situation and isn’t a woman of good moral character — (and she likely isn’t since she’s obviously seeking to tempt), she may not care about disrupting your relationship — especially if she knows you’re interested in stepping out of line.

Guys! Too Much TV Watching can Result in Lower Sperm Counts – Study

A study has revealed that men who do little exercise and spend much of their time watching television have lower sperm counts than more active men. The study, published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, shows falling sperm quality is linked to lower levels of physical activity.

The study found that young men who watch television for just three hours a day have half the sperm count of men rarely found in front of the box. Yet 15 hours or more of exercise a week boosts semen quality, according to the results in nearly 200 college students.

Also, experts say this could be due to lack of exercise, or to overheating of the testicles caused by prolonged sitting. And some experts say men wanting to father children need to be selective about the sport they do, as well as avoid wearing tight underpants as these may harm sperm.

However, in the latest study from the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH), healthy young men who watched more than 20 hours of television each week had a 44 per cent lower sperm count than those who almost did not watch. Men who exercised for 15 or more hours weekly at a moderate to vigorous rate had a 73 per cent higher sperm count than those who exercised less than five hours per week. Mild exercise did not affect sperm quality.

Charles Novia Writes About His First BJ

This was what he had to say…….

It was the fad in Benin City way back in my secondary school days. I attended the Immaculate Conception College and in my Year Three, I seemed to be the only boy in the testosterone-charged citadel who had not gotten a ‘BJ’. All the boys would discuss how they got theirs with gleeful descriptions and saucy jigs mostly ending their recant. I also noticed that such boys thereafter seemed to walk with a swagger or a new jaunt to their steps. Now there was I , a very conservative kid, at the cusp of puberty, still in the ‘dark ages’. An innate shyness then towards girls was my secret battle.

It wasn’t as if I was not ‘fine’ enough. On the contrary, I had been complimented with being a lad with teenage good looks by boys in school and sometimes their female friends from the nearby girl school but for me that was where it ended. And so, when most of my friends in secondary school were either discovering the pleasures of one emotional adventure after another, with some even going further to exploit the daring sexual adventurism of their nubile curiosity, there I was; still a prude but a pride to my folks. That was all that mattered to me then and it would all have gone on well for me, if not for the ‘BJ’ fad that crept into the scene! And I seemed to be the only one who had not yet had one! Somehow, I became the b*tt of jokes and I would hear a few sniggers from the boys who could clearly see that I hadn’t yet had a ‘BJ’. Soon, I couldn’t take it no more. I just had to have one.

And then she came along and that changed everything. Kay was her name. 14 years of age like me with ‘forget-me-not’ eyes and a pouting beauty, barely restrained by her hidden se*uality. I can’t ever remember how I got round to talking to her but we seemed to hit it off almost immediately that day at her school’s Interhouse Sports Competition. A couple of after-school ‘walk-dates’ later, she noticed I would always sigh involuntarily when I was with her and she asked me what was wrong. I had to stutter the truth to her. ‘ I have been trying to get a ‘BJ’ for a while because the boys in school have made me the laughing stock’. I told her. ‘Why haven’t you had one?’ she asked. How could one answer that question, what with my ultra-conservatism shaped by a combination of Biblical morality and self-imposed discipline of not just doing things because they were the vogue. ‘Do you want to get one?’ she asked me in a very innocent voice.

I could only croak an affirmative. Kay took my hand and led me through a dark alley in her street. I followed meekly. My heart was beating fast and alien sensations were dancing in my body at the feel of her touch. We came to the end of the dark alley. She turned to me and asked again. ‘You are really sure you want a ‘BJ’? Won’t your mum be angry with you?’ She had a teasing smile as she said that. ‘My mum won’t mind, I’m sure’ I replied. Kay nodded and guided me out of the alley into a building which had a Barber shop, owned by her brother. Thirty minutes later, I came out all smiles with the then reigning ‘Brothers Johnson’ hairstyle on my head. All thanks to Kay!

If you are reading this and you thought I was going to talk about some other meaning of BJ, then you certainly need deliverance. Repent! *smiling*
