Cheers! My Birthday Celebration with the Napa Valley Wine Country Tours

After losing my grandmother a few weeks before my birthday, I really needed to celebrate life. I know she would want me to do that. This year, I decided to ring in a new year of life in wine country. My soror traveled up from So Cal to visit. This would be her first time in Napa. I didn’t want to drive so instead, we bought bus tickets for the Napa Valley Wine Country Tours.

Let me tell you something, going on this bus tour was one of the BEST decisions I made. The Napa Valley Wine Country Tours bus isn’t just any bus. It’s a limo bus that looks like a VIP club lounge on wheels. We paid $119 for an 8-hour trip, visit to 4 wineries in Sonoma and Napa counties, continental breakfast and lunch. It was worth every penny. The tastings aren't covered in the bus fare, but they ran about $10-$25. Wineries won't charge you for tastings if you buy a bottle. I recommend this for tourists and any Bay Area locals who have folks visiting from out of town and want a short excursion to Nap…

Macy Gray's Message to Women: Give Love to Yourself and B.O.B.

For the entire month of November I'm bringing you my Black Women &  Sexual Empowerment series. Follow at #BlackWomenSexuality.

This 30-day #NaBloPoMo challenge is no joke! It's just Day 5 but I'm having a lot of fun. Happy Friday! Today I'm giving a shout out to Macy Gray. Macy has made a loving song about her vibrator named B.O.B. This stands for Battery Operated Boyfriend. 

I don't know why women have a hard time discussing masturbation. It's safe. It's healthy. It feels gooooood. And you learn a lot about your body. I think it makes intercourse even more pleasurable because you learn how to control vaginal muscles. 

Macy Gray wrote this song to encourage women to embrace self-pleasure. B.O.B.s can also be used with other lovers. Cosmo has a great post on this.
