The end of the year is so hectic for most men. We are worried about getting all of the end-of-year projects completed around the house. We want to spend time with our family, but work seems more demanding than ever. Then there are all of the holiday functions with friends, family, and coworkers. Some of this craziness will be taken care of this year due to health restrictions. However, the pandemic has also created an environment where many businesses are rushing to make up profit lost earlier in the year. That means that most of us are working more to try to make that happen, even if it is from home. As we wind down the year, how do we find some form of balance so we can survive? Here are a few things to keep in mind as you work to make the most of the end of the year.

Womanizer, one of the best sex toy brands for women, has launched a sister brand, Arcwave. This new brand has now introduced it's first product and we're excited about it since it uses a similar technology to what made Womanizer famous. Pleasure Air technology generates alternating waves of air pressure rather than a typical vibration found in other male sex toys.

Stress can be a motivating force for creativity or it can be a dangerous and destructive force. We are firm believers in using stressful times to build, innovate and renew. That goes for relationships too. This year's quarantine has pushed many couples to the limit.

Released last month as part of Dunkin's Halloween lineup, the Spicy Ghost Pepper Donut is Dunkin's response to the quick-serve battle over spicy snacks.
