A vague jealousy, one of those dormant jealousies which grow up between brothers or sisters and slowly ripen till they burst, on the occasion of a marriage perhaps, or of some good fortune happening to one of them, kept them on the alert in a sort of brotherly and non-aggressive animosity. They were fond of each other, it is true, but they watched each other. Pierre, five years old when Jean was born, had looked with the eyes of a little petted animal at that other little animal which had suddenly come to lie in his father's and mother's arms and to be loved and fondled by them. Jean, from his birth, had always been a pattern of sweetness, gentleness, and good temper, and Pierre had by degrees begun to chafe at ever-lastingly hearing the praises of this great lad, whose sweetness in his eyes was indolence, whose gentleness was stupidity, and whose kindliness was blindness. His parents, whose dream for their sons was some respectable and undistinguished calling, blamed him for so often changing his mind, for his fits of enthusiasm, his abortive beginnings, and all his ineffectual impulses towards generous ideas and the liberal professions. Since he had grown to manhood they no longer said in so many words: "Look at Jean and follow his example," but every time he heard them say "Jean did this - Jean does that," he understood their meaning and the hint the words conveyed. 1.

I sipped my glass of Chablis. While I grabbed my glass, he took his champagne, and he drank, too. From then on, I knew for sure. He was peeking at me, by taking his glass every time I drank he gave his secret away.Probably he didn’t care at all.My phone rang.Jean Paul's profile pic appeared on my screen.Shall I take it, I thought.Hey, John. Do you understand?Shall I take Jean Paul, I thought. Jean Paul’s call....One day, I went to the Danish tavern with Jean Paul. You'll never forget that day again, will you John? That day with Jean Paul, who looks like the coca cola guy in the TV commercial.Sure I took him."Hello?" I said."Where are you?" He asked.He is not modest. He is not discrete. He is quite possessive...Jean Paul.Where are you? What are you doing over there?He is not my husband, but sometimes he pretends to be my man. Not at all like you, John, you are my tolerant, open-minded, liberal spouse.Jean Paul likes his women to obey him."I have lunch on the roof terrace, at Chez Paulette," I said."Jesus, lunch...it's already after two o'clock.""I'm free," I said.He thought that was decadent. He found that restaurant too expensive.Fortunately, I married you and not him, John.He is more made to...play with.Listen!"There's a man peeking at me," I told Jean Paul. All of a sudden.'What? Where?” he said."A man who sits opposite to me. He peeks between my legs. ""Between your legs?"A new story in the Hotwife Monologue Series. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nikki Delgado.

Jean-Claude Carvill was born in Lyon, France. He is a Beverly Hills sensuality intimacy coach with over 20 years of professional experience. He is also a dedicated tantra masseur, and, since 1980, when he gave his first tantra massage, he managed to help hundreds of women to get in touch with their sexuality and become more aware of their bodies. Coming from France, Jean-Claude grew up in a more liberal and free-spirited society and had the chance to understand the importance of one's sensuality in one's life. Wanting to help women experience fulfilled intimate lives, he has traveled through the Middle East, India, Southeast Asia, and Australia in order to learn the secret techniques of tantric massage. His activity grew through word of mouth marketing and found its main life within circles of women who have a genuine desire for the growth and discovery of their sexual fulfillment. His goal is to help them with their journey to better sex, better lives, and enhanced self-esteem. As an intimacy coach, Jean-Claude Carvill gives seminars on the awareness of female sexuality but also coaches individual women who find themselves in difficult spots in their relationships. Most often women who come to Jean-Claude Carvill for sensuality coaching find it difficult to reach orgasm during intercourse. They feel that they can't open themselves intimately toward their partners, or they are already extremely orgasmic but wish to know if there is something more than they already know. Through moral support and tantric techniques, Jean-Claude Carvill helps these women overcome their fears, become more aware of their bodies and their needs, and have a more satisfying relationships with their partners. Jean-Claude Carvill conducts seminars in Los Angeles occasionally. Jean-Claude has also conducted intimate gatherings for women throughout Australia, Bali, France, Beverly Hills, Chicago, and Atlanta. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lily Horne.

The quest leads Evie deep into the heart of the Russian émigré community of Paris.

This is a compelling and deeply felt exploration and defense of liberalism: what it actually is, why it is relevant today, and how it can help our society chart a forward course.The Future of Liberalism represents the culmination of four decades of thinking and writing about contemporary politics by Alan Wolfe, one of America’s leading scholars, hailed by one critic as “one of liberalism’s last and most loyal sons”. Wolfe mines the bedrock of the liberal tradition, explaining how Immanuel Kant, John Stuart Mill, John Dewey, and other celebrated minds helped shape liberalism’s central philosophy. Wolfe also examines those who have challenged liberalism since its inception, from Jean-Jacques Rousseau to modern conservatives, religious fundamentalists, and evolutionary theorists such as Richard Dawkins.Drawing on both the inspiration and insights of seminal works such as John Locke’s Second Treatise on Government, Adam Smith’s Theory of Moral Sentiments, Kant’s essay “What is Enlightenment?,” and Mill’s On Liberty and The Subjection of Women, Wolfe ambitiously sets out to define what it truly means to be a liberal. He analyzes and applauds liberalism’s capacious conception of human nature, belief that people outweigh ideology, passion for social justice, faith in reason and intellectual openness, and respect for individualism. And we see how the liberal tradition can influence and illuminate contemporary debates on immigration, abortion, executive power, religious freedom, and free speech.But Wolfe also makes it clear that before liberalism can be successfully applied to today’s problems, it needs to be recovered, understood, and embraced—not just by Americans but by all modern people—as the most beneficial way to live in our complex modern world. The Future of Liberalism is a crucial, enlightening, and immensely rewarding step in that direction. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tony Craine.
