MANY experts believe that before you can identify 'Mr Right' you have to first know who 'Mr Wrong' is, as this will help you know exactly what you want when you finally decide to settle down. This experimenting should also help you to enjoy your marriage without looking back at what could have been with someone else. "We are not saying that women should sleep with all of these men, we are saying you should go out with them and get to know the type of person who comes with a certain package," sa ... Read More

Monday, April 14, 2014    

NO man wants to fail in the performance department and as a result some men have gone to great lengths to ensure that they get the job done and get it done right. Jamaican men have for years turned to things like 'Chiney brush', 'stone', 'horse tonic' and 'Spanish fly' to ensure that they not only perform well, but go the extra mile and a half. Some readily admit to it, for others it's information they keep on the down low. This week we hear the truth about usage from the men themselves. Hug ... Read More

Dear Counsellor, I have a problem with my father. He left me when I was a little girl and came back into my life when I was 22 years old.

He has accused me of treating his family like dirt even though we have no interaction at all. He told me that I have something to fix all by myself. How do you think I should handle t ... Read More

By NADINE WILSON All Woman writer | Monday, April 14, 2014    

CLARKE… I have always enjoyed working with other people

SPRING break is generally a period when many Jamaica-born college students studying abroad return to the island to party and have a good time, but for Samantha Clarke, her time will be best spent providing medical care to low-income residents in an impoverished community in West Virgina.
