  • ★★ How Long Does She Want You to Last? ★★ A recent study proved that the average man lasts just 2-5 minutes in bed (during intercourse). The study also showed that many women need at least 7-10 minutes of intercourse to reach "The Big O" - and, worse still... 30% of women never get there during intercourse. Clearly, most men are NOT fulfilling there women's needs in bed. Now, as I've said many times - how long you can last is no guarantee of being a GREAT LOVER. But, not being able to last 20, 30 minutes or more, is definitely a sign that you're not going to "set your woman's world on fire" between the sheets. Question is: "What can you do to last longer?" Well, one of the best recommendations I can give you today is to read THIS report. In it, you'll discover a detailed guide to an Ancient Taoist Thrusting Technique that can help any man to last much longer in bed. I can vouch 100% for the technique because my husband has been using it for years :) Here's the link to the report ◆◆◆ https://tinyurl.com/rockhardxx

  7. 7. Multidimensional Culture Members within an individualistic society share many characteristics; however, they also have the freedom to be different. Self-Sufficiency Individualism fosters the ability to perform well individually and find strength within themselves to overcome obstacles. Individualism does not allow for other people(s) to experience that person's talents or creativity. Learning to cooperate with others is what builds character, friendship, and important life skills. They have more problems with finding good friends, because they don’t care about others’ opinions. It can lead to difficulties with social life.

  11. 11. Collectivist cultural values with their focus on groups, place heavier emphasis on situational influences. Individualist cultural values with their individual uniqueness, place emphasis on personal characteristics. ATTRIBUTIONS FOR BEHAVIOUR
  12. 12. CHILDREN RAISED AS INDIVIDUALISTS MAY BE JUST AS CLOSE TO THEIR FAMILIES AS A CHILD RAISED IN A COLLECTIVE SETTING, BUT THEY DRAW THE BOUNDARIES DIFFERENTLY: IN CASE OF A CONFLICT, THEY MAY FEEL MORE FREE TO CHOOSE THEIR INDIVIDUAL PREFERENCE. DUTY, HONOR, AND DEFERENCE TO AUTHORITY ARE LESS PROMINENT FOR THOSE WITH INDIVIDUALIST STARTING POINTS THAN COLLECTIVE ONES. INDIVIDUALIST PATTERN
  13. 13. CHILDREN ARE TAUGHT THAT THEY ARE PART OF A CIRCLE OF RELATIONS. THIS IDENTITY AS A MEMBER AS A MEMBER OF A GROUP COMES FIRST, SUMMED IN THE SOUTH AFRICAN IDEA OF UBUNTU: “I AM BECAUSE WE ARE”. COLLECTIVIST PATTERN
