The birthing ball is an exceptional tool for mothers-to-be as it truly helps to accelerate the evolution of labor, reduce pain and make natural childbirth easier.The Ballon Forme Couples Method © provides the father with the necessary means to help the mother during the different stages of labor.

and co-founder of Ballon Forme

This little book is a precious tool to give out to parents who want to do everything possible to experience natural childbirth.

The “Ballon Forme Couples Method ©” developed by Danielle Fournier has 3 main focuses: first and foremost, introducing movement in the process of labor. The more we move, the more we participate. And the more we participate, the more power we have over ourselves.

Next, this method implies the participation of a partner. So right from the start, the notion of isolation is excluded. When the partner is the father-to-be, he too plays a role in helping the mother pursue her own personal pain management, which definitely reinforces the complicity between the two parents.

Finally, this book emphasizes on the importance of spontaneity when using the ball. Essentially; it all comes down to building the mother-to-be’s self confidence.

About the author

Passionate about perinatal care for over 30 years, Danielle got a perinatal training from Mrs Joanne Dussault*, professor and author, when she became pregnant in 1984 and wished to give birth to her first child in water. Mrs Dussault, very interested by this new birthing technique, played an important role in helping Danielle live this unique experience in collaboration with Dr Desmond Paradis, gynecologist and obstetrician at Centre Hospitalier Pierre-Boucher, and thanks to the incredible generosity of internationally renowned Dr Michel Odent, eminent surgeon and obstetrician.

At that time, Danielle was doing her Master’s degree in Exercise Science (Sciences de l’activité physique) and decided to focus her thesis on the effects of physical activity on the process of childbirth. From her ten years’ experience as a teacher at Ballets-Jazz de Montréal, combined with her studies and her first childbirth experience, she created a whole new prenatal dance technique. Further to that she gave prenatal and postnatal dance classes for over 20 years. During this period, the family grew as Danielle experienced two other natural childbirths. The last baby was born at home, under the supervision of a midwife, Mrs Céline Lemay. In 2002, a long time friend, Louise Kanemy, physical educator and creator of a complete exercise ball program, initiated Danielle to the ball. She fell in love instantly! From there a new passion was born. Danielle adapted all of her material for this new tool; she created the Ballon Forme Couples Method © and together, they founded the Ballon Forme company. In 2014, Danielle submitted a thesis to Université de Montréal, regarding the effects of training with a birthing ball during pregnancy on childbirth outcomes.

Danielle gave training sessions to the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Sainte-Justine, Hôpital St-Luc du CHUM de Montréal, Hôpital LaSalle, Centre Hospitalier Cité de la santé de Laval, Maison de naissance du Haut-Richelieu and Hôpital de Morges in Switzerland during some clinics on relief of pain in obstetric wards and to perinatal specialists in Canada, France, Switzerland, Belgium and South America. She strongly believes in natural childbirth and this is what always guided her. This is why she is happy to share her experience by offering the Ballon Forme Couples Method © to those who wish to go through natural childbirth with the help of the birthing ball.

Today, Danielle Fournier offers Prenatal Ballon Forme classes to pregnant women, Postnatal Ballon Forme classes to new mothers, as well as training sessions to couples who wish to use the birthing ball during labor and delivery via the Ballon Forme Couples Method ©. She also offers training to perinatal care educators (midwives, nurses, and doulas) who wish to prepare and support couples with the birthing ball and finally, she trains future Prenatal and Postnatal Ballon Forme trainors.

 How Do Gay Porn Stars Make Bottoming Look So Easy?

Hung tops stick it in like a glute inject and the bottoms don’t even flinch. What’s their secret? And what can you learn from them so you can have ecstatic butt sex without any pain? Some of the answers will shock you. 

Learn porn star secrets to bottoming without pain and start making love with volcanic pleasure. Written by gay sex advice columnist Woody Miller and a team of urologists and colon-rectal specialists, this book combines porn industry secrets with innovative techniques from the latest gay male sex research. 

How We Got The Porn Industry’s Secrets To Bottoming Without Pain.

We sent a team of researchers to interview a truckload of gay male erotica industry folk—cameramen, scouts, producers, directors and performers. The result is a fascinating, behind-the-scenes, no-holds-barred look into the industry and the secrets they use to get performers to bottom without pain or messy scenes. The main sections: 

1: What You Can Learn From Porn Star Bottoms. 

A fascinating view of bottoming in the porn industry—how gay erotica performers prepare for a shoot, how they can take huge tops without any pain (even if it’s their first time) and how they stay loose despite day-long shoots. If you ever had a question about how the porn industry works, this is the place to find answers—from how much money porn stars make to what percent are heterosexual (shocking!) to their favorite brand of douches. 

2: Free Your Mind, Your Butt Will Follow. 

How To Bottom Like A Porn Star: The Ultimate Guide To Gay Sex is part porn exposé, part how-to from the latest gay sex research. In this chapter, we’ll look at how “Anticipatory pain” and a perceived loss of masculinity can put your butt in a headlock. We’ll show you how to resolve the emotional blocks that stop you from trying or enjoying anal sex with other gay men. 

3: Why It Feels Like You’re Being Impaled By A Fence Post. 

From our urologist and colon-rectal experts who specialize in gay male sex: It isn’t just your sphincter causing all that pain; it’s your “S-curve” as well as involuntary puborectal contractions. Learn your anatomical structure so you can make the tips in this book work better. 

4: How Porn Star Bottoms Relax Their Sphincters. 

Not all do it, or need to, but the gay men in the sex industry that do swear by it. Find out whether you should use their controversial method. 

5: The Porn Star Method Of Eliminating Pain. 

Find out the shocking things gay male erotica stars do to eliminate pain. Some cannot be recommended, but others can and we’ve combined them with a technique that blends systematic desensitization, pattern breathing, progressive muscle relaxation and sexual imagery to completely eliminate pain and heighten pleasure. 

6: How Porn Star Bottoms Handle The Ick Factor. 

Find out their secrets to getting your butt cleaner than a Brady Bunch rerun. 

7: A Device That’s Better Than A Douche Or An Enema. 

Enemas and douches are a bad idea (despite the porn industry’s reliance on them). Find out why and what product doctors recommend that will get you as clean as a douche without any of the harmful side effects. 

8: How To Bottom Without Pain For The First Time. 

Here you’ll learn how to combine the best position with the best angle of entry. Missionary? Doggie-style? Straight in? Angled up? When it comes to gay sex, it matters. 

9: A Guided Tour Of A Pain-Free Bottoming Session Between Adam And Steve. 

A beginner’s real-time, step-by-step guide to bottoming—porn style!-- that will light you up like an all-night liquor store.

Queen Afua
A transformative journey of physical and ancestral healing from a renowned herbalist, natural health expert, and dedicated healer of women’s bodies and women’s souls
“Just when I thought I was all alone, I found myself walking with a group of conscious women who were taking sacred steps and speaking sacred words. We were on our way to Queen Afua’s Global Sacred Woman Village. Come with us, there’s Maat—balance and order—there.”—Erykah Badu
Queen Afua practices a uniquely Afrocentric spirituality. Her classic bestseller, Heal Thyself for Health and Longevity, forever changed the way African Americans practice holistic health. Now, with Sacred Woman, she restores the magnificence of our spirits through sacred initiation.
Queen Afua begins by helping us to discover our unique “womb-an-ness”—and to honor the womb as the center of our consciousness and creativity, giving us a twenty-one-day program for womb purification and spirit rejuvenation. Then Queen Afua summons us to enter the Nine Gateways of Initiation, where she blesses us with the exact tools we need to bring our beings into true harmony with the earth and the cosmos. Through extraordinary meditations, affirmations, and rituals rooted in Ancient Egyptian temple teachings, Queen Afua teaches us how to love and rejoice in our bodies by spiritualizing the words we speak; the foods we eat; the spaces we live and work in; the beauty we create in our lives; the healing energy we transmit to self and others; the relationships we nurture; the service we offer; and the transcendent woman spirit we manifest.
With love, wisdom, and passion, Queen Afua guides us to accept our mission and our mantle as Sacred Women—to heal ourselves, the generations of women in our families, our communities, and our world.
Praise for Sacred Woman
“Sacred Woman flings open the gates of understanding the feminine essence. It is the return of the soul force to women.”—Jewel Pookrum, MD, PhD (Sunut Arit)
“Queen Afua is an extraordinary healer, teacher, mother, and keeper of our legacy. Through Sacred Woman, she has given us the sacred tools we need to live our lives in this new century.”—Hazelle Goodman, actress

“Sacred Woman offers profound wisdom to all who seek healing and transformation. Queen Afua is a national treasure.”—Bob Law, author, radio personality, and vice president of WWRL

 Learn How To Cum More & Shoot Like A Porn Star.
A Sex Columnist And Two Urologists Show You How To Increase Your 
Semen & Shoot It Farther. 

• You’ll be able to cum up to 3-5 feet further. 
• Increase your semen volume up to 50%. 
• Impress your sexual partners. 
• Add excitement to your sex life. 
• Gain more sexual confidence. 
• Written by sex columnist with two urologists–advice you can trust! 
• Easy to follow, step-by-step guide. 
• Short too–only 36 pages. Read it in 30 minutes! 

Would Your Partner Rather See You Dribble Or Cum Like A Porn Star?
Consider 2 scenarios: 

Scenario #1: 
You’re masturbating to orgasm in front of your partner. You’re 
breathing hard and whaling away. She can see the heat in your cheeks, 
your muscles tightening and the energy building as the moment of 
inevitability approaches. You let out a moan and she braces herself for 
the money shot and…drip, drip, drip. 


Scenario #2: 
It’s a few weeks later and you’ve put the insights and techniques in 
this book. The moment of inevitability comes, your partner braces 
herself for the money shot and SPLAT! BAM! WHOOSH! It’s all over her 
stomach, breasts and face (watch the eyes!). 


Which of those two scenarios do you think is going to be more memorable and pleasurable for her? And for you, too. It doesn’t matter who you are or who you’re with, shooting your ejaculate a few feet is a 
spectacular way to end a sex session. It’s like performing your own cum shot in a porn video. 

The Best Reason To Learn How To Shoot More Cum: Confidence!
What you may lack in muscle or penis size you can more than make up for in a dazzling display of liquid excellence. Most women would take an erotic penis over a big one and choose an arching ejaculation over 
bulging biceps. 

Urologists agree that you can learn how to cum more and significantly 
increase the force and the distance your ejaculate leaves your body if 
you pay attention to a few things. With the help of these urologists 
I’m going to give you the ability to cum like a porn star. 

Ready To Learn How To Ejaculate More & Cum Farther?
Take A Look At The Table Of Contents. 

Chapter One: Stop Taking Expensive Supplements And Listening To Shysters. 
The only thing supplements can pump out to great distance is the money out of your wallet. There’s not a single urologist who recommends them, so stay away. 

Chapter Two: Understanding What Creates a Forceful Ejaculation. 
Strong pubo-recto muscles, amplifying the sexual turn-on, drinking the 
right fluids, using the right hand technique, and building up semen 
will make you cum like a grenade launcher. 

Chapter Three: Working Out Your “Cum-Throwing” Muscles. 
Pelvic floor muscles force semen up and out of your penis by 
synchronized contractions. The more forceful the contractions the 
harder you’ll shoot. So guess what? You need to train those muscles to 
stomp on your reproductive tract like a narc at a biker rally. 

Chapter Four: The Bigger The Turn-On The Bigger The Blast-Off. 
The more you’re turned on the further you’ll shoot. Here are some 
physical and psychological techniques to redline the desire meter. 

Chapter Five: Semen. The More You Have the More You’ll Shoot. 
More volume means more pressure, which means more launch force. Try these proven tactics for increasing your semen volume. 

Chapter Six: The Harder You Get The Further You’ll Go. 
The more blood that rushes to your penis the further you’ll cum. This chapter will show you some neat tricks that will get your dick harder than a frozen turkey. 

Chapter Seven: Hand Techniques Guaranteed To Propel You Further. 
In baseball, how you hold the ball influences the speed at which it releases. It’s the same thing with cum shots. Here are a few techniques that will get you over the home plate.
