How to be a lady

Country Life recently ran an article about how to be a gentleman. They have just followed up with their view of the 39 Steps To Being a Lady. I'm not sure I agree with all of them, but it is a really amusing and thought-provoking list.

I cant easily do better than their summary "generosity and graciousness are more important than fine feathers and a lady can come from any walk of life—but there’s one key difference: a capable lady knows when to let her gentleman take charge (or let him think so)"

A lady always has a hanky
According to Country Life, A Lady . . .

1 Finds laughter is the best medicine
2 Can say ‘thank you’ no matter where she is in the world
3 Cooks perfect, crispy roast potatoes
4 Offers to split the bill
5 Knows that everyone, including herself, improves with age
6 Offers the builder a cup of tea
7 Excels at making love, lasagne and long gin and tonics
8 Can silence a man with a stare and make a dog lie down with a hand signal—and vice versa
9 Can imitate Piglet and Pooh voices for a bedtime story
10 Prefers Mr Knightley to Mr Wickham, but is secretly in love with Rupert Campbell-Black
11 Never downs a drink in one, unless it’s a shot of tequila
12 Is aware that the school run and dog walking do not require full make-up
13 Never wears shoes she can’t walk in
14 Knows when a man is spoken for
15 Can paunch a rabbit, pluck a pheasant and gut a fish, but allows men the privilege
16 Remembers her godchildren’s birthdays
17 Knows songs for a long car journey
18 Is neither early for a dinner party nor late for church
19 Doesn’t over-pluck her eyebrows
20 Knows how to deflect a lecher with grace, and a proposal with kindness
21 Comforts nervous flyers
22 Would never have Botox
23 Knows when to let a man think it’s his idea
24 Would never own a handbag dog
25 Can tie—and untie—a bow tie
26 Might not understand the rules of rugby and cricket, but enjoys the game anyway
27 Knows when to take control in the bedroom and the boardroom
28 Knows the difference between Bentley & Skinner and Baddiel and Skinner
29 Instills manners in her children, but lets their characters flourish
30 Knows when to deadhead a rose
31 Is never afraid to overdress
32 Can handle a sports car, a sit-on mower and a ski lift
33 Knows when to stop dyeing her hair
34 Teaches her son to iron his shirts and her daughter to change a fuse
35 Owns a little black dress
36 Always has a hanky
37 Knows that ‘brevity is the soul of lingerie’
38 Has kissed several frogs and made them feel like princes
39 However lucky in life, she doesn’t boast on Facebook

My lovely escorts in Ibiza certainly qualify and a surprising number of the young escorts in Marbella too. No matter what their background or nationality, what makes a woman a lady is behaviour. Young woman in Marbella, mature woman in Ibiza; from England, Europe or elsewhere, a lady is a lady if she acts as one consistently.

7 Scientific Reason You Should Have Sex Every Day

Great article from Cosmopolitan. I cant remember the last time I said that. So, for both men and women, here is the list from Cosmopolitan. I´ll explain in a minute why I think they are missing the point a little.

1. It could lower his risk of prostate cancer. According to a study from Harvard Medical School, men who ejaculated more often reduced their risk of developing prostate cancer by 22 percent.All sorts of nasties build up in the prostate and urethra and ejaculation gets rid of them. Quite quickly.

2. Your chance of getting a cold goes way, way down. Researchers at Wilkes University in Pennsylvania found that people who had sex at least twice a week released more antigens like immunoglobulin A, which helps fight off colds and the flu. 

3. It keeps you looking super young and confident. In a study by Scottish researcher and clinical neuropsychologist David Weeks, judges guessed the ages of 3,500 European and American women and men, and found that the people whose age was underestimated by seven to 12 years were also reporting having sex three times a week, in comparison to the control group which was doing it twice a week. 

Better than Ibuprofen
4. It'll help get rid of your heinous menstrual cramps. A study done in 2000 found that 9 percent of 1,900 women were masturbating solely to get rid of their menstrual cramps. There's no way that many masturbating women are wrong. 

5. It could make you crazy-fertile, if you're trying to conceive. A new study in Fertility and Sterility found that having sex every day could help prepare your immune system for pregnancy, which is critical in terms of increasing your chances of having a baby. 

6. It lowers your blood pressure and your ability to stress out over basically nothing. A 2005 study found that people who had penile-vaginal intercourse (their words, not mine) had lower blood pressure and better stress responses than people who didn't (or those who masturbated or had non-penetrative sex), which in theory would mean they were also way more chill. Never a bad thing. 

7. Sex can actually make you a super genius. Separate studies by researchers at the University of Maryland and Konkuk University in Seoul, South Korea, found that mice and rats who had sex more often were also less stressed, and since stress makes your brain less able to function, that made them more intelligent thinkers. 

A serious brain workout
OK, point 7 is waaay beyond stretching the point just to come up with the magic number 7 that Buzzfeed  has made so important for every blogger and journalist who wants to get read. Basically, click-bait. But what the hell?

So I took an extremely unscientific poll of my lovely escorts in Ibiza and even of the sexy Marbella escorts from 2nd Circle. Intellectual giants all! And based on their feedback, here are some addiitonal reasons to have sex every day:

It´s fun

It´s extremely fun

If you´re doing it in any interesting way it´s  a great aerobic or stretching workout. Or both.

It´s fun

Even if you don´t look younger afer sex, you´ll feel younger after a few orgasms. This has been scientifically tested. Honestly. Try it if you´re looking for some empirical evidence.

Orgasms are great for exercising your facial muscles.

Even bad sex is better than a good Spanish coffee. (Spanish coffee is really, really really bad. No way around it.)

So, take it from my gorgeous escorts in Ibiza and my friends who escort in Marbella. Shagging is good for your health. Have more of it. Prefrebaly with them.
