Summary

Don’t Hold My Head Down is a memoir about sex. It starts with the author having a disappointing, drunken wank to internet porn, and ends with her having day-long orgasms and taking on the most powerful newspaper in the country.In her mid-thirties, Lucy-Anne Holmes realised that something was missing. When it came to sex she still felt like a novice: she lacked confidence and felt incapable of asking for what she wanted. But when she looked for a how-to guide or a workshop, she found that everything she googled was geared towards the male gaze rather than women’s pleasure.So, she made a ‘fuckit list’ of the things she’d like to try – among them slow sex, ejaculation, different types of orgasm, being sexual with other women, BDSM, sex parties and making porn – and set out on a journey of discovery.This is the book that Lucy wanted to read in the first place; a frank, eye-opening and inspiring account of the search for better sex that shares her tips, revelations, failures and triumphs.

    The education of our young ones is one of the most important things we can offer them as parents.  We want to ensure that they are growing and developing on track and in the way that they should.  As you watch your children grow, you want to do everything you can to help them be successful in the world.  Part of helping them be successful is giving them both a head start and the ability to be prepared for their formal education.   
    Even if your child is or will be participating in preschool, we know that the greatest learning will occur in the home where your child can have one on one time with your child.  Your child will learn much faster if you take the time to help your child learn essential skills.   
    We all know that toddlers are a little difficult to teach sometimes when they don’t like to sit and listen to you talk.  With that in mind, we’ve developed twenty games that will help teach four important subjects that are entertaining and should keep your child having fun while also learning important new things. 
    In this book we will address and talk about four essential subject matters that we feel are important for your child to be familiar with before starting formal education.  Here’s what we have included in the book: 
    Shape Learning Games 
    Color Learning Games 
    Number Learning Games

    Healing Your Mind with Positive...

    A positive affirmation is an autosuggestion of empowering thoughts in a form of a statement of something you desire, or a condition of the world, which is repeated consistently in order to implant it in the mind.
    
    Positive affirmations cover a group of affirmations aimed at achieving inner peace, living optimally and building solid confidence to face hardships in life. Instead of just telling yourself what you wish to have in  life,  through  practice,  affirmations  lay  a  much  stronger  impact because when you affirm yourself consistently, you continuously build strong subconscious beliefs in your mind which will then reflect in your outer world. 
    
    There is no reason you should settle for less in your life. We all are put  on  this  earth  to  achieve  our  full  potential  and  by  settling  for mediocrity you are just now doing justice to yourself. So just go for it, you’ve got nothing to lose and all to gain!
