  • ★★ 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 ♥♥♥ http://ishbv.com/rockhardx/pdf

  5. 5. Gender SensitivityGender sensitivity is the act of being sensitiveto the ways people think about gender.
  6. 6. • Gender sensitivity tries to ensure thatpeople rely less on assumptions abouttraditional and outdated views on the rolesof men and women.
  7. 7. Language matters!Gender sensitivity often gets expressed throughpeoples language choice.We can choose more inclusive language and usewords that are gender neutral.
  8. 8. Gender discriminatory words are not innocent -by making women non-apparent, society willsee them as possessing less value.Gender equality benefits both men and womenby giving them wider choice.
