Train humans the animal trainer way...

Many people use the wrong technique to train others. This animal training technique works, as many have shown. A repeat of a previous post to save lots of pain and suffering:

Humans are animals and the methods of animal trainers work on people. So reinforce good behaviors and ignore the bad. Nagging does not work. Makes sense to me! Accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative:

What Shamu Taught Me About a Happy Marriage
By AMY SUTHERLAND
AS I wash dishes at the kitchen sink, my husband paces behind me, irritated. "Have you seen my keys?" he snarls, then huffs out a loud sigh and stomps from the room with our dog, Dixie, at his heels, anxious over her favorite human's upset.

In the past I would have been right behind Dixie. I would have turned off the faucet and joined the hunt while trying to soothe my husband with bromides like, "Don't worry, they'll turn up." But that only made him angrier, and a simple case of missing keys soon would become a full-blown angst-ridden drama starring the two of us and our poor nervous dog.

Now, I focus on the wet dish in my hands. I don't turn around. I don't say a word. I'm using a technique I learned from a dolphin trainer.

I love my husband. He's well read, adventurous and does a hysterical rendition of a northern Vermont accent that still cracks me up after 12 years of marriage.

But he also tends to be forgetful, and is often tardy and mercurial. He hovers around me in the kitchen asking if I read this or that piece in The New Yorker when I'm trying to concentrate on the simmering pans. He leaves wadded tissues in his wake. He suffers from serious bouts of spousal deafness but never fails to hear me when I mutter to myself on the other side of the house. "What did you say?" he'll shout.

These minor annoyances are not the stuff of separation and divorce, but in sum they began to dull my love for Scott. I wanted – needed – to nudge him a little closer to perfect, to make him into a mate who might annoy me a little less, who wouldn't keep me waiting at restaurants, a mate who would be easier to love.

So, like many wives before me, I ignored a library of advice books and set about improving him. By nagging, of course, which only made his behavior worse: he'd drive faster instead of slower; shave less frequently, not more; and leave his reeking bike garb on the bedroom floor longer than ever.

We went to a counselor to smooth the edges off our marriage. She didn't understand what we were doing there and complimented us repeatedly on how well we communicated. I gave up. I guessed she was right – our union was better than most – and resigned myself to stretches of slow-boil resentment and occasional sarcasm.

Then something magical happened. For a book I was writing about a school for exotic animal trainers, I started commuting from Maine to California, where I spent my days watching students do the seemingly impossible: teaching hyenas to pirouette on command, cougars to offer their paws for a nail clipping, and baboons to skateboard.

I listened, rapt, as professional trainers explained how they taught dolphins to flip and elephants to paint. Eventually it hit me that the same techniques might work on that stubborn but lovable species, the American husband.

The central lesson I learned from exotic animal trainers is that I should reward behavior I like and ignore behavior I don't. After all, you don't get a sea lion to balance a ball on the end of its nose by nagging. The same goes for the American husband.

Back in Maine, I began thanking Scott if he threw one dirty shirt into the hamper. If he threw in two, I'd kiss him. Meanwhile, I would step over any soiled clothes on the floor without one sharp word, though I did sometimes kick them under the bed. But as he basked in my appreciation, the piles became smaller.

I was using what trainers call "approximations," rewarding the small steps toward learning a whole new behavior. You can't expect a baboon to learn to flip on command in one session, just as you can't expect an American husband to begin regularly picking up his dirty socks by praising him once for picking up a single sock. With the baboon you first reward a hop, then a bigger hop, then an even bigger hop. With Scott the husband, I began to praise every small act every time: if he drove just a mile an hour slower, tossed one pair of shorts into the hamper, or was on time for anything.

I also began to analyze my husband the way a trainer considers an exotic animal. Enlightened trainers learn all they can about a species, from anatomy to social structure, to understand how it thinks, what it likes and dislikes, what comes easily to it and what doesn't. For example, an elephant is a herd animal, so it responds to hierarchy. It cannot jump, but can stand on its head. It is a vegetarian.

The exotic animal known as Scott is a loner, but an alpha male. So hierarchy matters, but being in a group doesn't so much. He has the balance of a gymnast, but moves slowly, especially when getting dressed. Skiing comes naturally, but being on time does not. He's an omnivore, and what a trainer would call food-driven.

Once I started thinking this way, I couldn't stop. At the school in California, I'd be scribbling notes on how to walk an emu or have a wolf accept you as a pack member, but I'd be thinking, "I can't wait to try this on Scott."

On a field trip with the students, I listened to a professional trainer describe how he had taught African crested cranes to stop landing on his head and shoulders. He did this by training the leggy birds to land on mats on the ground. This, he explained, is what is called an "incompatible behavior," a simple but brilliant concept.

Rather than teach the cranes to stop landing on him, the trainer taught the birds something else, a behavior that would make the undesirable behavior impossible. The birds couldn't alight on the mats and his head simultaneously.

At home, I came up with incompatible behaviors for Scott to keep him from crowding me while I cooked. To lure him away from the stove, I piled up parsley for him to chop or cheese for him to grate at the other end of the kitchen island. Or I'd set out a bowl of chips and salsa across the room. Soon I'd done it: no more Scott hovering around me while I cooked.

I followed the students to SeaWorld San Diego, where a dolphin trainer introduced me to least reinforcing syndrome (L. R. S.). When a dolphin does something wrong, the trainer doesn't respond in any way. He stands still for a few beats, careful not to look at the dolphin, and then returns to work. The idea is that any response, positive or negative, fuels a behavior. If a behavior provokes no response, it typically dies away.

In the margins of my notes I wrote, "Try on Scott!"

It was only a matter of time before he was again tearing around the house searching for his keys, at which point I said nothing and kept at what I was doing. It took a lot of discipline to maintain my calm, but results were immediate and stunning. His temper fell far shy of its usual pitch and then waned like a fast-moving storm. I felt as if I should throw him a mackerel.

Now he's at it again; I hear him banging a closet door shut, rustling through papers on a chest in the front hall and thumping upstairs. At the sink, I hold steady. Then, sure enough, all goes quiet. A moment later, he walks into the kitchen, keys in hand, and says calmly, "Found them."

Without turning, I call out, "Great, see you later."

Off he goes with our much-calmed pup.

After two years of exotic animal training, my marriage is far smoother, my husband much easier to love. I used to take his faults personally; his dirty clothes on the floor were an affront, a symbol of how he didn't care enough about me. But thinking of my husband as an exotic species gave me the distance I needed to consider our differences more objectively.

I adopted the trainers' motto: "It's never the animal's fault." When my training attempts failed, I didn't blame Scott. Rather, I brainstormed new strategies, thought up more incompatible behaviors and used smaller approximations. I dissected my own behavior, considered how my actions might inadvertently fuel his. I also accepted that some behaviors were too entrenched, too instinctive to train away. You can't stop a badger from digging, and you can't stop my husband from losing his wallet and keys.

PROFESSIONALS talk of animals that understand training so well they eventually use it back on the trainer. My animal did the same. When the training techniques worked so beautifully, I couldn't resist telling my husband what I was up to. He wasn't offended, just amused. As I explained the techniques and terminology, he soaked it up. Far more than I realized.

Last fall, firmly in middle age, I learned that I needed braces. They were not only humiliating, but also excruciating. For weeks my gums, teeth, jaw and sinuses throbbed. I complained frequently and loudly. Scott assured me that I would become used to all the metal in my mouth. I did not.

One morning, as I launched into yet another tirade about how uncomfortable I was, Scott just looked at me blankly. He didn't say a word or acknowledge my rant in any way, not even with a nod.

I quickly ran out of steam and started to walk away. Then I realized what was happening, and I turned and asked, "Are you giving me an L. R. S.?" Silence. "You are, aren't you?"

He finally smiled, but his L. R. S. has already done the trick. He'd begun to train me, the American wife.

Being good in bed...
Posted:Sep 11, 2007 11:39 am
Last Updated:Apr 16, 2019 8:35 am

My view is that the media and porn have sold people a false notion of what makes good sex! Being young and pretty or handsome is nice, but if you do not have the right stuff then the sex will be subpar.

So what makes a woman good in bed for me? Many things!

1. A sexy attitude is the key thing! She has to like herself, enjoy her body and enjoy mine. She needs to like kissing, stroking and playing. She needs some energy, some flexibility and the desire to enjoy sex and share pleasure for as long as we have! Being a passive corpse is deadening...

2. A little technique is great, but she does not have to memorize the Kama Sutra or try ninety positions. Five or six positions will do fine...

3. Kissing is important as it expresses affection and lust, and leads to intimacy...

4. Oral sex is fab for expressing acceptance of your lover's sex organ and for natural lubrication.

5. Stroking each other and using a vibrator can be very fun activities which transform foreplay into orgasms!

6. Being open to play is great. Being creative and trying new things can be terrific fun. For example, adding a vibrator on her clit while having intercourse can transform the sex into something even more amazing.

7. Having the woman suck on the man's nipples can be a turnon and show she is fun and not stuck on stereotypes about human sex behavior. Dirty talk, moaning and noises can be fun...

8. Having the patience to keep playing even after a few orgasms can allow both to really get into the sex. There are lots of fun things to try: G spot massage, fisting, standing up, using the bathroom counter top for a support surface, etc. Sometimes I enjoy playing with food, a dildo, foot massage, or trying different lubes...

9. A sexy woman is also willing to touch her own clit while we are having sex, or to masturbate in front of me. She also likes to watch me touch myself. Sex is best when the inhibitions are shed with the clothing...

10. Anal sex can be fun, with lube, taking things slowly and not being too pushy until the partner relaxes into it. Condoms make things more sanitary and safer. Have not yet had a female use a strapon on me, but that might be fun sometime! Anal is not a must, but only for those who enjoy it...

11. With the proper desire and attitude great sex is shared! Having a hot attractive bod and pretty face is great, but having a sexy attitude and hot desire for your partner is the key!

Kegel exercises for men and women!
Posted:Sep 7, 2007 7:59 am
Last Updated:Apr 26, 2019 7:47 am

Another important educational post worth rereading, as the sex life you improve is your own!

The PC muscles need strengthening for men and women to have the best sex! A repeat of an earlier blog to remind everyone to kegel regularly!

Kegel exercises serve to tone and strengthen the pubococcygeus or "PC" muscles which form the floor of the pelvis. The health of these muscles plays a vitally important role in sexual arousal and climax, as well as in other aspects of bodily functioning.

Why should men do kegel exercises regularly?

kegel exercises increase the bloodflow to the genital area, and so support sexual arousal mechanisms.

kegel exercises strengthen and tone the muscles that are involved in ejaculation, and so men who Kegel can, if they do some additional work with themselves, gain greater control over the timing of their ejaculations.

kegel exercises prevent incontinence and other problems that are often associated with aging.
Why should women do kegel exercises regularly?

kegel exercises increase the bloodflow to the genital area, and so support sexual arousal mechanisms.

kegel exercises strengthen and tone the muscles of the vaginal canal, and so women who Kegel can, if vaginal stimulation is their choice, and if they do some additional work on themselves, improve their capacity to orgasm by means of vaginal play, in terms of both the intensity and the frequency of their orgasming.

kegel exercises are essential to the treatment of sexual difficulties such as vaginismus and dyspareunia (pain on vaginal intercourse).

kegel exercises prevent incontinence, prolapses, and many other problems of the pelvic floor that are often associated with aging.

kegel exercises strengthen and tone the musculature of the pelvic area in a way that can make vaginal delivery during childbirth easier.
How do I find my PC muscles?

go to the bathroom and sit on the toilet (men, it is also a good idea to sit for this).

in the middle of your stream of urine, stop and start the stream several times. The muscles you use to do this are your PC muscles. At first, you may find that you are also squeezing your anal muscles; as you become experienced with kegel exercises, try to separate out the muscle groups that you are able to exercise by squeezing.
How do I do regular kegel exercises?

now that you have located your PC muscles, you can exercise them while your bladder is completely empty.

first, try squeezing your PC muscles as hard as you can for a count of three seconds. Then let them relax. To begin with, see how many times you can do this before the muscles feel tired.

now figure out a suitable exercise routine just as you would if you were trying to tone and strengthen a different muscle group by going to the gym every other day. For example, suppose you start by being able to do only five strong squeezes; try doing three sets of five once or twice a day for a week, and then try increasing this to three sets of eight strong squeezes.

if you work up to three sets of thirty or more strong squeezes, you are probably healthy enough for most purposes, and need only to maintain this level of fitness by doing these three sets four times a week (instead of once or twice a day).

we also recommend that you experiment by varying the type and timing of the PC squeezing you do as you train these muscles: slow clenches, many quick flutters, and so on. This will make you more familiar with these muscles ‒ notice also when your abdominal muscles or your anal muscles feel like they also want to join in the exercise.

remember, you should try to separate out kegel exercises from anal squeezing. If you are in doubt, go back a refind your PC muscle while urinating.

once you are skilled at kegel exercises, you should be able to do them without anyone else knowing what you are doing... boring meetings at work, tedious lectures at conferences, and other daily events all become opportunities to work quietly on improving your sexual health!

Why stay if the sex is inadequate?
Posted:Nov 1, 2007 11:12 am
Last Updated:Nov 13, 2014 5:04 am

Many cannot seem to wrap their minds around the concept of a couple staying together even if the sex is not sufficient for one of the couple.

As I have thought about this subject over the last decade or so, allow me to explain.

I am not trying to sell anyone anything. I do not crave your endorsement or ask for approval or disapproval. There is no need to judge me or condemn me.

From what I see most marriages have inadequate sex for one or both partners after a period of time. Ask around and see. Many marriages have little or no sex. Some enjoy other activities and some do not.

My marriage has some sex, sometimes not for a week or two, then sometimes once or twice a week. I share many things values with my spouse. But I desire hot sex daily, and many types of sex that she is unwilling to do.

I have no reason to condemn or reject her just because she is different from me. I accept her as she is and have given up trying to convert her to my way of thinking.

I also recognize that some crave variety and some do not. Some are willing to take a risk and some are not.

While many will condemn me for seeking what is considered "cheating" or "adultery", one can also look at the situation from the opposite point of view. I stick with a woman who loves me and I love, despite the fact that she is not providing me with the sexual satisfaction I crave. I have sacrificed my desires for many years, to please her and to make sure our grew up in a stable household, which I believe is best to nurture a .

I also do not agree with those who espouse total honesty with a spouse as that only hurts the feelings of the non-cheating spouse. She knows I have "strayed" and has forgiven my transgressions; "don't ask, don't tell" is what we both prefer.

Those who wish to be less discreet are welcome to do so, but in my experience most people cannot handle the jealousy and fear.

While some will condemn my dishonesty, another viewpoint is that I must bear the guilt and the secrecy to preserve and protect an illusion that is comforting to my spouse. I do what she prefers, even though she refuses to do what I prefer.

Freud noted that many times in human affairs there are multiple reasons that explain actions. Things are "over-directed" to the same conclusion.

I will also note that I stay for the companionship, because I am used to the situation, we get along well, we share many things including a , and apart from the sex, many things are truly fine in our relationship.

One does not throw out a relationship that has only one failing, even if the failing is an important one like sex.

My cynical side also assumes that any other marriage would eventually also exhibit the same problem that monogamy engenders, boredom or a desire for variety of "strange" sex organs attached to a new partner.

Those who do not understand the above, please feel free to ignore it and withhold hostile rants. Those who can relate to what I am saying, feel free to express sympathetic sounds...

There is a large unmet need for mental health counseling. But I am not a therapist nor do I play one on TV. In my profession as an attorney I meet a number of people who are mentally ill. I do my best to avoid them and refuse to take them on as . I learned this lesson the hard way.

My experience is that you always lose when you try to help someone who is mentally ill. No matter how good a job you do they are not happy with the result and will sue you for not doing better. The mentally ill believe they are right and all others are wrong.

My rule is to refuse to get involved with the mentally ill. Sorry, I cannot help you. You need professional assistance from someone trained to deal with insanity. Not me. Good luck to you, elsewhere. Not me. Bye.

Sadly some people are thieves and selfish. These criminals turn the occasion of a protest into a chance to steal. They do a great harm to the cause that the protestors are fighting.
By using the distraction to cover their wrongs they get a short term advantage, but end in tarnishing the protest. Sadly some minorities hurt the cause of protesting police brutal force and disrespect to minorities. So the thieves are feeding the racist lies that all minorities are dishonest criminals who deserve to be treated as animals.

Gandhi taught non-violent civil disobedience as a way to counter colonial rule in India. Only by the restraint and pure non-violence could the protesters retain the moral high ground. MLK, Jr. preached the same lesson.

Meanwhile Trump as always uses the crisis to drive people apart. Los Angeles showed we do not need the Federal Army to police the streets and enforce the curfew. The police deserve respect, but so do legit protestors of murder by police. Criminals deserve to be imprisoned for theft and vandalism. The criminals who set fire to cars and building risk a murder conviction if anyone is killed as a result of arson. Stupid acts can have very bad consequences. Their are cameras and cell phones recording the criminals as well as the police. There will be consequences for criminal behavior.

Risk factors for Covid 19 death

Age, sex, obesity, and underlying illness have emerged as risk factors for covid-19 death in the UK, according to the largest cohort study to date published in The BMJ May 22, 2020.

The risk of death increases over age 50. Also risk is greater for males, the obese, or having underlying heart, lung, liver and kidney disease.

A team of UK researchers analysed data from 20,300 patients with covid-19 admitted 208 acute care hospitals in England, Wales, and Scotland between 6 February and 19 April 2020. This study covered about a third of patients admitted hospital with covid-19 in the U The average age of patients in the study was 73 years; ,068 men or 60% were admitted hospital and 8,065 women or 40%.

Increasing age, being , and underlying heart, lung, liver and kidney disease were factors known to cause poor outcomes. Researchers found that obesity was a key factor associated with higher risk of death not highlighted in known data from China.

The numbers of dead from Covid 19 keep piling up. The only part that is less grimly horrifying is that the numbers will lead regime change in the U.S. Trump gives himself and A+ grade for the virus management. My grade is F.

As we open the economy more infections and deaths should follow.

I hope for some drugs and a vaccine next year. Too late for many.

By November some of those happy MAGA folks will find out the infection is not a hoax or a joke. It is deadly to about 5% over 60 year olds with health problems. Maybe even enough to shift the result in some tossup states. We shall see.

The CDC says about 90,000 have died from Covid 19 in the U.S. But that is likely an under count. More likely about 110,000 if you add in those extra deaths from lung problems early in 2020 when tests were not available. Many states still do not count deaths at homes and deaths without a diagnostic test.

Currently in mid May 2020 about 1,000 die each day in the U.S. With so many states reopening for business and people thinking the worst is over, virus infection will more easily spread. Thirty days from now the result will be obvious for all to see.

At 1,000 per day killed that is 30,000 per month. With 5.5 months to November 2020 election that is another 165,000 dead, assuming no increase from the reopening. My guess is the number will be twice that figure.

Trump is trying to duck responsibility for the fight to beat the virus. But the buck stops with the President, as Truman said. He wants the glory, he gets the blame.

If you think Trump did a great job fighting the virus, then vote for him in November. If you think Trump was inept and failed as a leader, replace him and try Biden for a change.

Stupid is great until people start dying without need to do so.

The virus is irritating. But we have learned a lot in a short period of time.

For 80% of us the virus is mild or no big deal. 50% have no symptoms but still spread it.

Still for 5% the virus may kill you. Usually it takes 30 or more days to kill someone, but some people die more quickly.

The 1918 to 1919 flu killed between 50 and 100 million worldwide. This one could too.

There are hopeful developments. Drugs are being tested and steps are being taken to improve the odds to beat the virus in hospitals.

Still the fastest vaccine developed to fight a virus is four years, and then getting people vaccinated takes a year or more. HIV-AIDS killed in the eighties, and there is no vaccine yet.

More than 90% of those who die from the virus are males, over age 60, and have major medical issues like high blood pressure, obesity and diabetes.

The research has shown your own body can kill you from a storm of reaction from the virus, so they use Drugs to tame down the inflamed reaction.

Delay getting sick and you have a better chance of surviving this epidemic.

Stay home if you can, stay healthy and survive... Good luck to all. We will need it.

Reopen to what?

Science and health advice from doctors and public health experts. Trump rejects that.

The CDC muzzled. The U.S. with the most confirmed cases and the most deaths from the virus. We have failed to do a good job due to inept leaders.

California got lucky with Gov. Newsome stepping up in March 2020. But not enough was done in January, February and early March.

The reopening is foolish as no state meets the criteria for reopening.

If you can stay home, work from home and limit your contacts with strangers.

Wear a mask to protect yourself and others.

Drugs are being tested, and vaccines are being tested.

About 5% were infected in Los Angeles; about 20% were in NYC.

More is learned every day. Better to get infected later.

Stay safe and stay alive.

Ain't misbehaving, due the virus situation.

Some hopeful signs: The stock market is rebounding. Some trials of approved drugs may find a winner to re-purpose. The curves are flattening. So hospitals are not over whelmed.

American ingenuity is helping to save lives.

Germany is doing a better job with only a 3% death rate compared to confirmed cases. Italy has a 13% rate and the U.S. a 5.2% rate, with CA at 3.6% and NY at 7.4%.

Of course the numbers are inaccurate. Under-counts and over-counts.

Not a good time to be in a nursing home.
