“My philosophy of life: Wake up. Be happy. Hurt no one. Go to bed. Wake up. Repeat.”~ Jodi Ambrose

No this is not my personal way to kiss ass, this is extra credit. Doing above and beyond what was asked for.

Jodi Ambrose found this blog last May and she and I have been keeping in touch through one another’s blog ever since.

Not that long ago she gave an offer that I couldn’t refuse. It was her Tit for Tat offer.

So what did she want? The books that she has written about sex and intimacy, as well as one helluva enjoyable cookbook, were to be sent to me in the mail in trade that a review will be written on amazon.com.

That soon will come. This is extra!!

Jodi Ambrose discusses what is known as The List. At a minimum of twenty separate things about the opposite sex that you should know about. Basically these books are your guidelines to earning yourself lots more sex.

That’s right. Books for both genders on tips on getting laid, and getting laid a lot!!

Sounds good, doesn’t it??

Even though the terms of the exchange were firmly written in her blog, I actually had the balls to make a counter offer to her original deal.

She knew that I have been wanting these books for a long time but just never could put the money together to purchase them. After all, her original deal was to ship the books in the mail for FREE. I couldn’t lose! But noooooo… I had to go and make the counter offer that she autograph anything that she sent.

Signed. Sealed. Delivered.

Jodi Ambrose- 3. Dambreaker-0.

Oops! Uh-oh. I’m screwed and not in the way that is explained in the books!!!!!!!

I took great delight when I received the package in the mail that I nearly squealed like a 9 year old girl with glee. And I enjoyed the written messages attached within each book. And even though she warned me NOT to read the book written for women as to not to reveal their secrets, I will admit that I did thumb it through for a bit.

So enough about that. On with the show!! jodi book

Sex: How To Get More Of It. A guy’s roadmap to paradise, in and out of the bedroom. 

This was the book that was targeted for males. Reading this book more closely than the other, I simply just have to agree with Jodi with each and every word written. Both serious and vulgar.

She’s got a way to use a dirty mouth to drive her point across into the male skull which most women think are thicker than their own. And though that may be true for some, the helpful hints and tips have no trouble getting through the cranial barrier and into the brain of even the oddest of men all the way to the intelligent, knowledge-seeking lovers.

Vernacular is key throughout the entire book. She’s gone through the painful task of forming The List for men. And as much as I agree with The List, it would behoove all male readers to NEVER stray from it, NEVER change it, just obey it! That is if you ever dream of getting laid again in your lifetime. No matter if you are married, in a relationship that is new, or single… these words to the male readers should open up the guy’s senses in what it means to understand a woman… even if its just for a fraction of an inch.

But understanding a woman’s mind isn’t what its about. Again, the point is how to get laid!! And I do not know of any man who wouldn’t want to have that kind of knowledge in their arsenal.

As I turned page after page after page I wondered why most men have issues like these. It’s like the warning levels on consumer products. If it has to be written, its because some dumbass did something well…… dumbass. So apparently there are men out there who would benefit from this book.

Intimacy: How To Get More Of It. A peek into understanding the male mind. 13490786

Again, I was warned not to read it. But I did read through most of it and there was a reason for that. I wanted to find out just how accurate it would be. In other words, I wanted to see if there was at any point that I would totally and vehemently disagree with any statement, remark, or piece of advice that Jodi had to offer.

Sweet beans of unholy mercy! There was nothing in the book that I would dare disagree with!!

Yep. That’s what happens!

Much like her book written for male readers, the book written for female readers also contain The List. It slightly differs because males and females differ. Imagine that, huh??

Jodi Ambrose definitely has her shit together where it matters. Both for males and females. And she puts it in the easiest terms possible. Vernacular also for females is probably spot on as well.

So as far as it goes with the books on intimacy and sex, I found myself eager to get to the next paragraph to see what it would say to me.

Guys can in fact get laid a lot more. And girls can receive the intimacy that they desire just the same. Just stay on the map that was written by Jodi Ambrose!

The books prove that there is a possibility of getting wonderful, mind-blowing sex for as long as you really want it!

I’m glad she stumbled across my blog. I’m glad I decided to reciprocate. And now, if you don’t mind….. I will sit back and wait to see what my punishment (or reward) will be for reading both books. I’ll be hearing from her soon in one way or another.

I cannot wait to utilize the cookbook that she put together with her husband collectively. It looks like so much fun, and yummy to say in the least!!!

Her blog can be found in the Blogroll. Find all three of her books on amazon.com if you want the intimacy or the sex that you still want and just haven’t been getting.

“It is the characteristic of the magnanimous man to ask no favor but to be ready to do kindness to others.”~ Aristotle

Two things right away before I get into my post. #1- Quit snickering, you pervs! “Tit for tat” has been around for many centuries in the English language. It is a shorter version of the phrase “this for that”. #2- I can really get deep with the philosphical quotations.

Today, I witnessed a rather unusual spectacle. Two people were ironing out some logistics of a deal that they were trying to make. It most certainly sounded like a situation of “I’ll scractch your back, if you scratch mine.” As I became curious, I fully involved myself in the conversation that was taking place and I heard the two parties come to an agreement. Some labor for some food.

Food was then dispensed and consumed. And because I had involved myself, I was invited to eat as well. But when it came time for the person to do the small labor, they bolted. When that had happened, I excused myself from the situation entirely and never looked back. I had a feeling that the person who was jaded was going to ask ME to do the small labor for him. And I would not have been physically capable of doing so, otherwise I probably would have. So even before the person did ask, I told him of my physical limitations, thanked him for the meal, left him some cash for it, and departed.

I was wondering what the guy who had fled was thinking. He was visibly hungry and was wanting to eat. The other man was more than willing to help nourish him for the evening for as long as he would get some help in doing some chores around the house. Apparently, selfishness and greed was either that which took better of the man, or it was what he had planned all along.

There used to be nothing wrong with tit for tat. It was very common for it to occur at one point in time. Now, it is society’s sickening and rude attitude of “What’s in it for me?” that controls the situation, and I think that is just wrong.

Yes, you are going to receive something in return in these situations. I just don’t understand or see the point in making the scene worse by trying to gain the most out of it. I mean, to the point of where the arrangement becomes so uneven to where the other individual doesn’t even want to continue discussing it. I’ve dealt with that myself. I’ve given in to other people’s evil and selfish desires all because I needed a little help.

Doing someone a favor any more tends to come with a hidden agenda. If you help me, then I am automatically enslaved and in debt to you. Umm, no! It should not be that way. It should not be something that you should be taking advantage of the other person for. It seems like favors have gone out the window.

Whatever happened to doing something out of the love and kindness of one’s heart? That is what a favor really is. And should there come a time where I can return the favor, I should be more than happy to do that- without having this heavy burden hung over my head and begin told, “Remember I did __________ for you??”.

All of us can use a little help from time to time. All of us have had our moments in life where we were absolutely in need of something that we couldn’t do ourselves. It doesn’t appear that the generosity of others exists any more. As I said, when someone asks for help, it is always the attitude of “What’s in it for me?”.

Just help the person, for crying outloud!! I am sure that if they didn’t need to ask you for help, they wouldn’t and probably would be ten times happier if they could do it on their own. But for whatever reason, they feel that they cannot.

In my own life experiences, I have to ask for help. A LOT! That’s just the way it is. And yes, I will offer some kind of an exchange. But I do not do it to sweeten the deal so that you are going to agree to help me, I do it because that is what I feel is best in my situation for me to do, as a way of saying “thank you” for your kindness and help.

I’m not the first to say it or admit it, but today’s society SUCKS!!
