‘America’s Got Talent: Extreme’ Contestant Almost Dies After Freak Accident

Production has paused on America’s Got Talent: Extreme after a freak accident left a contestant fighting for his life. The accident happened during a rehearsal for the show held on Thursday night and involved escape artist and stuntman Jonathan Goodwin. TMZ reports that Goodwin was suspended in mid-air between two cars while wearing a straight jacket and was meant to escape, but then things went terribly wrong.

Goodwin was apparently smashed between the two cars. While it’s unclear exactly how the accident happened, Goodwin was reportedly hanging from a wire by his ankles 70 feet in the air. He was meant to get out of the straightjacket and then drop onto an air mattress below to avoid the cars crashing into him. However, the cars crashed before he could escape, leaving Goodwin sandwiched between them.

When they collided, the cars exploded. After the cars crashed into Goodwin, the collision then sparked an explosion, leading to a “gigantic fireball.” Goodwin then fell to the ground and hit his head.

Sources say they believed he was dead. Because Goodwin was initially unresponsive, many people on set believed he must have been dead. However, by the time emergency services arrived and he was airlifted to a hospital to be rushed into surgery, he was believed to be responsive again.

His current condition is unknown. However, TMZ reports that he’s being held in a trauma unit and continues to recuperate. Here’s hoping he makes a full and speedy recovery and that an investigation is held to find out how things went so terribly wrong so that it never happens again.

Why You Still Feel Connected To Your Ex Even Though It’s Over

Your relationship ended weeks or even months ago but for some reason, your ex is still on your mind and in your heart. You would have thought you’d have moved on by now – and all your friends and family think the same – but you haven’t. Here’s why you still feel so connected to your ex even though they’re no longer in your life.

You have a lot of shared memories.

If you were together for a long time, chances are you’ve shared many experiences and created many memories together that can’t (and shouldn’t) be easily forgotten. You may even have gone through major life changes during your relationship, such as births, deaths, moves, etc. It makes sense that you’d still feel connected to your ex given that they’re so entwined with much of who you are.

Your connection was deeper than in other past relationships.

You’ve probably had other partners in the past but all of them seem to pale in comparison to this particular ex. That could be because your relationship was much more serious or lasted much longer, or it could have been that you truly connected on a soul level but it didn’t work out. When you lose someone you consider a soulmate, it’s only natural that you’d feel pangs for them even after you part.

You didn’t really want to break up in the first place.

If the breakup wasn’t your idea and was out of your control, you may be holding onto your relationship with your ex because you have unresolved feelings for them. If you weren’t ready to let go of your ex, you’re going to feel connected to them because you haven’t truly cut the cord. Maybe you’re hoping for a reunion in the future or were simply blindsided by being dumped. Whatever it is, your feelings are more than understandable.

You haven’t started the healing process.

After a breakup, it’s important in the immediate to separate yourself entirely from them if you want any chance of moving forward. If you’re still following all their social media accounts, have their stuff hanging out all over your apartment, and are still texting them regularly, you haven’t started to process the relationship so that you can heal.

You still love them.
iStock 1157635346
At the end of the day, the most obvious reason you still feel connected to your ex is that you still love them. You want to be with them and resume your relationship because you believe that you belong together. Whether or not that’s the case or you’re kidding yourself isn’t for me to say, but it is important to do some soul searching so you can find some resolution either way.

Early Signs Your Relationship Will Last: How To Know You’ll Go The Distance

Published

When you get into a new relationship, it’s easy to see your future prospects as a couple through rose-tinted glasses. You’re still in the honeymoon period and everything is great between you, so how could anything ever go wrong? If you’re lucky, maybe you will go the distance. However, if you don’t fancy taking your chances and want a more solidified outlook, here are some signs your relationship will last long-term.

You show up for one another without question.

It doesn’t matter what else you’ve got going on in your life – if your partner needs you, you’re there. Life is going to throw some crazy stuff at you from time to time and you need to be able to rely on your partner to be by your side to support and uplift you when you need them. If you feel assured of this, this is one of the biggest signs your relationship will last.

You can truly be yourselves when you’re together.

There’s nothing worse than feeling like you’re walking on eggshells around someone or that you have to pretend to be someone you’re not just to make them happy. That’s a recipe for resentment and disaster for sure. However, in a healthy long-term relationship, you can be totally yourself and know that you’ll be accepted and loved.

You know how to talk things out.

If your relationship is going to last, you have to be able to communicate effectively and read the signs that there are issues so you can work on them. If you’re passive-aggressive, cruel, or think denying issues is going to make them go away, it’s never going to work out. You’ve heard a million times that communication is key and that couldn’t be more true. Learn how to work on problems together and combat them before they become bigger than necessary.

You give each other room to be and grow.

The longer you’re together, the more likely it is that you and your partner will evolve as human beings. You have to be willing to allow each other to become different versions of yourself and learn how to love those other versions. Obviously, no one wants to feel like they’re in a relationship with a stranger, but the natural ebbs and flows of life should be respected and even encouraged if your relationship is going to last.

You’re consistent with each other.

A big key to success in love is being consistent. That means living up to your word and behaving the same from one day to the next. You don’t suddenly go hot and cold and you’re not wishy-washy with your feelings. Instead, you’re even-keeled, becoming someone your partner can rely and depend on, and they offer you the same thing in return.

You’re one another’s biggest fans.
iStock 939027790
One of the biggest perks of being coupled up is having your own personal cheerleader right by your side. You know you’ll go the distance if you’re truly one another’s biggest fans, always there to encourage each other’s dreams and cheer each other on as you go about accomplishing them.

You share very similar values and life goals.
iStock 636350278
Another of the biggest and most important signs that your relationship will last is knowing that you want the same things in life and believe in the same general principles about the world. While it’s totally fine to have differing opinions on the little things, you’ll need to agree on the big stuff if you want to stand a chance.

You love trying new things together.

Life is going to get boring sometimes – that’s just how it goes. However, having a shared sense of adventure can go a long way in keeping things new and exciting and allowing your relationship to continue to grow as you strengthen your bond.

A Guy Reveals Why He Goes Flaccid During Sex And What To Do About It

Published

on

The mechanics of sex aren’t always straightforward no matter how much of it you’ve had and how good at it you are. For instance, it’s sometimes possible for men to lose their erections during sex without warning. Obviously, this is far from ideal and can be quite frustrating for both partners. The best thing to do is to understand why it’s happening and what can be done about it. Here are some possible reasons guys go flaccid during sex and how to handle it.

He’s nervous.

Performance anxiety is a thing. Some guys feel a lot of pressure to perform in bed, and that pressure can get the best of us sometimes, causing us to lose our erection. With some guys, this can become a regular occurrence. However, it’s far more common when sleeping with someone for the first time because there isn’t a lot of familiarity with the other person.

He drank too much.

Chronic alcoholism can lead to consistent problems with erectile dysfunction, but a substantial amount of drinking in a short period of time can also cause an affliction that’s frequently referred to as “whiskey d**k.” Remember that alcohol is a depressant, which means it depresses certain bodily functions. This can make it more challenging for blood to flow to the right places so that a guy can get and keep an erection. This is one of the biggest reasons guys go flaccid when things are hot and heavy.

He has health issues.

There are certain health issues that can cause erectile dysfunction, which isn’t always the inability to get an erection but having difficulty keeping one as well. Unfortunately, guys don’t always know that they have a medical problem that can cause ED. Something as simple as a poor diet or obesity can contribute to ED. Taking various drugs, including antidepressants, could also explain why a guy gets hard but loses his erection at a bad time.

He’s experiencing mental health issues.

Things like depression, anxiety, stress, and low self-esteem can all play a role in erectile dysfunction. Don’t forget that there is an emotional element to sex, which means a guy’s psychological health can hinder him in the bedroom.

He’s not interested in you.

In this instance, it’s more emotional than physical. A guy might be attracted to you physically, but if he’s not feeling it emotionally, his penis might let him know by failing him at an inopportune moment. In a way, he’s almost going soft out of guilt because he doesn’t want to lead you on. However, you shouldn’t jump to conclusions and assume this is the reason a guy goes flaccid.

He watches too much porn.

First of all, it’s hard to find a guy who doesn’t watch porn. That being said, it’s possible to watch too much of it. There are studies that suggest watching too much porn can lead to sexual dysfunction in men. After all, watching sex and having it are two different things. If he watches too much, it can change the way a guy responds to sexual stimulants and gets aroused. It’s not necessarily that he prefers porn to the real thing, but his body may not respond to sex the way it should, which could cause him to lose his erection during sex. So how do you handle all of these things?

Relax.

What should you do when a guy loses an erection during sex? First, you should try to relax and stay calm. Also, don’t jump to conclusions about why it happened. Even under ideal circumstances, these things can happen, so try not to get mad or assume there is a serious problem that’s causing it. Try taking a little bit of a break and then try again later to see if you have better luck.

Don’t play the blame game.
iStock 904820960
I assure you that getting upset and playing the blame game isn’t going to help anybody get and keep an erection. A guy shouldn’t blame his partner any more than a woman should blame her partner. As I said, these things happen sometimes and it isn’t always somebody’s fault. Blaming the other person will just add stress and anxiety to the situation, neither of which will help.

Try other things.
iStock 877089562
Obviously, a guy losing his erection during sex was not part of the plan. But it doesn’t have to derail the whole experience. Try doing other things in bed and enjoying each other in different ways. Perhaps that can help both people to relax and not put so much pressure on the guy to get another erection. If you stop thinking about it so much, that can be the remedy to a guy going flaccid.

Visit a doctor.

Of course, if this becomes a regular occurrence, it might become necessary to visit a doctor. As mentioned, there are plenty of medical explanations for why he might lose his erection. Some are related to a person’s physical or mental health. Seeing a doctor will be an important step in getting to the root cause of the problem. From a guy’s perspective, it might be easier if his partner accompanies him to the doctor to help talk about the problem and show support.
