As women, we already know getting in the mood starts long before we step foot in the bedroom, but the Greatest Poet Alive, also known as GPA, author of the “Book of 24 Orgasms,” tells rollingout.com there are things women can do to turn their men on long before they enter the boudoir too.
Here’s what he told rolling out:
What are some things women can do to turn men on?
“Women can turn men on by doing very simple things. She should use her voice, her soft tone, as opposed to the one that has a lot of coarseness to it.
“Appreciate some things about him, say, ‘hey, I like that shirt on you.’ Or, ‘you look very handsome today.’ We are simple creatures, animalistic in our nature, and women being the higher form of our creation, we want to hear that from you.
“We try our best to aspire to please you. That’s why we earn, we drive, we work out some of us, we dress well, get our hair cut, shave, we’ll do whatever we need to do so that you’ll see us. Even in your conversation, listen to him, even if you could care less. Just the idea of, ‘how was your day? Are you alright?,’ will make him feel like, wow, I can breathe. I don’t have to walk on eggshells. You’re not yelling at me, you’re my supporter.”
“This is [the scenario] in my poem, Wait For Me, a man is speaking to a woman, he’s trying to work hard and earn more, he’s trying to be better because he came from a bad relationship and he’s asking her to wait because she’s so worthy, she’s so quality. She’s so good, intelligent, beautiful and God-fearing, so he asks her to wait for me, so that I can catch up and be right for you.”
Do men still like the thrill of the chase?
“Yes. That’s why I write poetry. I love for a woman to smile, and if she thinks or feels that I’m talking to her, I want her to feel that way. And if it’s a woman that I have a specific interest in, I want her to feel like I’m coming for her. I want her to feel like I’m the Dark Knight and I fend off all challenges because I’m the one for you and you’re the one for me.
“In some cases, don’t make it so arduous but don’t make it easy. There’s a happy medium, that’s the nature of things.”

“If I am not good to myself, how can I expect anyone else to be good to me?”- Maya Angelou
We teach people how to treat us. What we tolerate and accept is the syllabus for some one to follow. If we do not love and respect ourselves, how can we expect some one else to do the same?
Love yourself unconditionally; and be kind to your self so anyone that shares your life will know that you deserve nothing but the best.
Have an amazing day!
“To be a real man or woman, you’ve got to know what you believe in. You’ve got to understand that your actions have consequences and that they are connected to everything that you are.” ― Sister Souljah
Often times we think turning a certain age or becoming a parent automatically makes us a man or a woman. However we fail to realize that it’s takes much more to hold that title. As Sister Souljah reminds us, to be a real man or woman we have to know who we are, what we believe in and understand that our actions and decisions have consequences. We are role models for the next generation, so let’s make them proud and leave a legacy they can follow and benefit from.

(PublishersWeekly.com) — My decision to self publish evolved gradually. An invitation to contribute a 500-word story for a special section of microfiction in O magazine started me thinking. I’d been observing glumly the shrinking space allotted to fiction in national magazines. Could O’s interest in microfiction, even if it lasted only a single issue, be a good omen?
