When Should I Call My Doctor About Sexual Dysfunction? Many men experience a problem with sexual function from time to time. However, when the problems are persistent, they can cause distress for the man and his partner and have a negative impact on their relationship. If you consistently experience sexual function problems, see your doctor for evaluation and treatment. Call Your Doctor immediately or Go to an Emergency Room If: You have an extended or painful erection, unrelated to sexual desire, lasting more than a few hours. authentic levitra online buy levitra online Viagra no rx Phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors - The cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterases constitute a group of enzymes that catalyze the hydrolysis of the cyclic nucleotides cyclic AMP and cyclic GMP. They exist in different molecular forms and are unevenly distributed throughout the body. Effectiveness of tadalafil in these studies was assessed using a sexual function questionnaire. Study participants also were asked if they were able to achieve vaginal penetration and to maintain erections long enough for successful intercourse. Sildenafil is available as oral tablets at doses of 25, 50, and 100 mg. It should be taken approximately one hour before sexual activity. In some men, the onset of action of the drug may be as early as 11-20 minutes. Sildenafil should be taken on an empty stomach for best results since absorption and effectiveness of sildenafil can be diminished if it is taken shortly after a meal, particularly a meal that is high in fat. The Latin term impotentia coeundi describes simple inability to insert the penis into the vagina. It is now mostly replaced by more precise terms. The study of erectile dysfunction within medicine is covered by andrology, a sub-field within urology. where to buy real viagra cialis online cialis online Viagra no rx Pelvic floor muscle exercises - The pelvic floor muscles are a group of muscles that wrap around the underside of the bladder and rectum.

When I see the blue-and-yellow storefront, my disposition becomes sunnier and more optimistic. There’s something invigorating about so many possibilities and so many potential lifestyles.
No matter the space restrictions, the Ikea designers find a way to beautify and intensify. Bright colors and bold patterns are the MO for these décor divas.
In another place, in another time, perhaps this is my bachelor gal’s kitchenette. If I weren’t residing in suburbia, I fancy myself as a downtown girl who is hosting great parties in SoHo or TriBeCa. Ikea invites you to dream and fantasize about alternate realities!
What’s better than a Gwyneth Paltrow movie? How about two for the price of one! In “Sliding Doors,” Gwyneth gets to live out a pair of co-existing realities—with two different careers, personal lifestyles, and hairstyles!
The cover lines of the 2012 Ikea catalog says it all: A home doesn’t need to be big, just smart!
Throughout my childhood, I had three of these folding-up Barbie dollhouses. Portable and uber groovy, they were the very models of modernity.
I still remember this living room from the World of Barbie dollhouse. I had inherited the carry-case house from the daughter of a friend of the family. She had outgrown toys, and her loss was my gain! (My poor World of Barbie home was destroyed when my five-year-old neighbor sat on the house and crushed it!)
The Mattel design team was not afraid of bold patterns and bright colors. Their fearless sense of mixing and matching have influenced me to this day. No wonder I am such a sucker for Ikea’s primary-color décor schemes.
Is this a sleek room box at an Ikea outlet, or is it a photo taken from one of their annual catalogs? It’s neither! A whole Barbie house based on an Ikea sleek, modern style has been produced.
Barbie looks right at home in her Ikea-influenced digs. Mattel, Ikea, and a fantasy lifestyle made “flesh”: my heart jumps for joy!

One of my favorite pastimes is heading to Ikea. Luckily for me, my friends and family know my obsession with snap-together sofas and “easy”-to-assemble armoires. At Christmastime, I’m fortunate that I almost always get presented with an Ikea gift card, which means that I have the chance to take my holiday cash in my hot little hand and trundle home with some attractive, boldly colored accessories.

What I love about Ikea is that the whole store is set up as a series of vignettes. Each squared-off area shows how delightful life can be in even the most cramped circumstances. I swear, this last time I went, the interior designers were showing how a family could exist comfortably and stylishly in under 300 feet. It was mind-blowing to see so much good taste and ingenuity shrunk down to a home no bigger than a camper! I shook my head in awe at the clever use of space and optical illusions, and figured the person who created this cityscape was the Old Lady Who Lived in the Shoe! Only that architecturally challenged woman could understand how to make such a tiny space into a well-heeled home!

For me, the hours fly by at Ikea, and I think part of it—in fact, it could be the main reason—is that it shoots me back to my carefree days of playing house. When I was a child, I had a whole series of easy-to-carry Barbie dollhouses. These were marvels of space-saving engineering. Rather than having a stationary house that would take up room and lead to potential eye sores, the Mattel designers fashioned a home for Barbie that could be packed up and transported. Made of vinyl, cardboard, and plastic—the house was certainly not eco-friendly—it had a pointed roof with a handle attached. When it was placed on the ground for imagination time, its owner could unsnap it and it would swing open to reveal one, two, three, or four rooms. Depending upon the price—and how generous Santa was feeling that year—I was gifted with a few of these models.

To say that I loved those Barbie abodes would be an understatement. I adored them. No, more than adored. I adoved them—a blending of adored and loved. Yes, I adoved them, and their bright, bold, mod color schemes—with state-of-the-art sleek and groovy furniture—equaled everything that was sophisticated, contemporary, and desirable for me.

No wonder as I wander through the Scandinavian labyrinth of this modern-day furniture empire, I am in a giddy, face-flushing trance. It’s as if all of my hours and days and years of doll playing have sprung to life. Each little furniture setup is an invitation to revisit what I was aspiring to when I was 6 and 7 and 8 and even 20! These room boxes appeal to the little girl I once was—a child who innocently thought that all homes cost the same and you simply bought the one that you liked best. They also whisper to the younger me who was in her twenties, wiser to the world, but still optimistic about what her future house and home would hold.

Wending one’s way through Ikea, shoppers are encouraged to envision themselves in the prearranged room décor. They are enticed to imagine dinner parties centered around the granite-appointed kitchen island; or picture a posse of striped-footed-pajama-clad kiddies cavorting across the overstuffed couches that are perched before floor-to-ceiling bookcases. The gaggle of children are loud and boisterous, but not clutzy or clumsy. Even though they are freely frolicking in the bookworm’s living room, nary an artfully arranged vase or oversized table lamp gets knocked over.

Ikea is an ideal place to dream about what you’d like your life to look like. Even if the psychic scars and real-life emotional boo-boos can’t be corrected, the four walls that box us in can be spruced up and renewed. Meandering through the maze of bedrooms, bathrooms, and boardrooms, I know that I indulge in teleporting myself to different dimensions, different decades of my life (real and imagined). A toll on the turnpike is a small price to pay for this retail therapy—so much cheaper than a session with a shrink or a life coach.
I think that’s why I always enjoy going there in the New Year as part of my post-Christmas tradition. When I stroll through the multiple floors, I am able to absorb the multiple lives on display there. I have my favorite setups for different imaginary lifestyles that I wish I could have. (It’s like being transported into the Gwyneth Paltrow romantic comedy “Sliding Doors.” Check it out if you haven’t seen it already. It shows how different a person’s life could be, for better or worse, with the ease of a sliding door.)

Each room box at Ikea is a different potential. I have my “single career girl pad,” where I would host nightly talk-a-thons and scintillating soirees. There’s my “well-to-do domestic goddess” country home, where I am the bright, competent, popular, and exciting equal to Martha Stewart and Kate Middleton. Or, my high-powered executive modern-mogul suite. Picture Donald Trump’s oasis, but with taste. (You might as well dream big if you’re going to dream at all.) And then there are the room boxes that are closer to my own reality: functional but fun, cluttered but comfortable, hardly spacious but especially heartfelt.

My early doll playing allowed me to project myself into the future. My Barbie had multiple jobs and satisfying careers: she was in theater and films, in radio, in publishing as a writer, in the home as a mom and wife, and in politics as president. These are all positions I’ve had, to one degree or another, in my real life, except for being prez. (Though I’ve been a guest at the White House—the ultimate great big dollhouse for decorators—on two incredible occasions.)

I guess that’s the beauty of playing with a dollhouse and taking a trek to Ikea: both allow you to open up your mind and your heart to possibilities and to hidden potentials. And I’m not alone in this correlation, as some doll and design professionals joined forces to create the ultimate, inspirational Ikea ideal (http://www.homedit.com/eco-barbie-dollhouse-inspired-by-ikea/).

When it’s all said and done, you might not always achieve everything you want, need, or desire in life. But at the end of the day, when you’re sitting down in the store’s cafeteria to a meal of Swedish meatballs and a lingonberry spritzer, you realize you’ve done quite a lot of what you imagined. Maybe not every dream or fantasy has come true, but you’ve accomplished samples and swaths of your aspirations. Or are even now poised to do so, given time and encouragement. And who could have imagined that!

I enjoyed this post. To be honest, I had a stroke 2 years ago & I have not tried to do any minis or make any dolls or anything sinse then. I have trouble reading directions and understanding them. I also have physical limitations from the stroke, Ihave to use a walker now to get around. But I wish I had the confidenc to just push thru and the ability.
