Folks, are you goin' green all the way to home plate, or just gettin' to first base? Now I'm all about doin' my part to save the environment, but a girl's gotta have limits . After reading an article years ago about how much paper is wasted on receipts at ATMs and at self-service gas stations, I no longer ask for a receipt. I also pay most of my bills on-line. Hell, sometimes I even take those reusable bags to the grocery store when I remember. However, I draw the line on goin' green in the boudoir. There are some things that just need to remain sacred, and being environmentally conscious ain't got no business when it comes to gettin' down and dirty!!!!
Rodale talks about the growing interest of people wanting to keep toxins outta the bedroom and gives 10 ways to climax without harmful chemicals. I'm only gonna hit the highlights for ya and let you read the others in the privacy of your chambers if you so desire. First, the article talks about my favorite guilty pleasure- CHOCOLATE. Did you know that a compound in dark chocolate releases the same feel good endorphins triggered by sex, and that just one cube of dark chocolate a day can improve sexual function? HOORAY for chocolate!!! Unfortunately, the authors have to ruin my chocolate fantasies by saying that pesticides in non-organic chocolates have been linked to hormone disruption, defunct sperm and reproductive problems, and advises you to choose organic chocolate for best results. Speaking as a true chocoholic, I'm stickin' with my hometown Hershey's favorites and will indulge in Godiva for a special treat. No need to go organic when I know exactly what satisfies my sweet tooth and what gets my hormonal juices flowin'. Plus, on those crazy jacked up nights when I feel like meltin' a little bit of that chocolaty goodness on Uncle Jeffy for dessert, I sure as hell ain't thinkin' about what kinda pesticides I might be ingesting. Good ol' Hershey's melts just fine and dandy!
