The Rayne's

#TheSims4: Introducing The Rayne’s

The Rayne’s are teen roommates currently residing in Mid-Nowhere: The Rayne’s in Windenburg.

 

Valerie Rayne is a creative music lover whose greatest ambition is to become a Musical Genius. Boyfriend Rayne, who shares the same last name as Valerie but isn’t related to her, is a genius and a geek whose life dream is to be a Nerd Brain.

They’ve already spent some time getting to know one another and becoming best friends. They’ve also hosted the Welcome Wagon and gone to Island Bluffs and the Discotheque, where they did their first ever group dance. Valerie is wearing the red bathing suit and Boyfriend is right in the center.

After their rather eventful week, full of school, homework and entertaining, they decided they needed to wind down and Valerie went to her room and Boyfriend went to his room and they both enjoyed a meditation session that let them level up twice.

Next up for The Rayne’s: While they’re still in school, both Boyfriend and Valerie intend to get jobs as Retail Store Employees. After they’ve held a job for awhile and are doing well in school, the plan is to start exploring clubs. I think we’ll probably have one of them create a club that they both join and then have them each join separate already existing clubs (such as the Paragons or Renegades). The final goal, before they become adults anyways, is to have them begin dating!

Be sure to stay tuned to see what ends up happening to The Rayne’s and the world around them!

And if you’d like to try playing as them, you can find The Rayne’s on The Sims 4 Gallery by searching the Origin ID: ValerieRayne13. I’d love to see someone play them and share their experience with me in the comments below!

The List - For Adults 18+

TO DO: Sexual Enhancement Routines

I’ve always looked at sex as something so much more than sex – almost as if it’s a way to achieve some sort of  enlightenment, the ultimate nirvana. I use these particular words, because I have no other to explain the way that I feel about the act and art of having sex.

Like any other act that requires a great deal of mastery, I think that sex is like a marathon you train for. Yes, we are all naturally able to have great sex and we don’t need to work at it – just like we’re all able to throw a punch and hit our target. But if you train your muscles and your mind, your fists can endure stacks of bricks. In the same way, your sex can go from great to nirvana.

Now, I’m not saying that I have the answers to enlightenment. I really don’t and I don’t think anyone does. However, there are a few things that I’ve always wanted to do to improve myself as a partner in a relationship, a lover in (and out) of the bedroom and as a sexual being.

Orgasm Daily

Orgasms have a wide array of health benefits which have been proven over and over again by science. Everything from lowering cholesterol to decreasing your chances of becoming depressed. And, they feel damn good!

Plus, after completing all the other stuff on this list, I’d probably have to orgasm just so that I wouldn’t spend the day in a state of arousal…

Do 100 Kegels a Day

Kegel exercises involve tightening the pelvic floor muscles and decrease the likelihood of incontinence as we age, among a number of other benefits, including a more controlled orgasm. Kegels are easy to do and can be done anywhere and I really do love to do them!

I’d like to aim to do 100 of them, in intervals of 10 or 20 at a time. Wake up, do my kegels, check. Eat, do my kegels, check. Do the dishes, do my kegels, check. Write a blog post, do my kegels, check. You get the point 😉

Sexercise

As I get older (and lazier…), my body just doesn’t move in the way it used to. I mean, I can still get into all the crazy positions and he flops me about like a ragdoll, but it just doesn’t move the same way it used it. Sometimes, it gets sore or my hip locks up mid-pounding or I get a cramp in my leg at the worst possible moment.

Stretches and yoga-esque moves seem to be the best options here. The core strength is necessary for maintaining my balance and the flexibility will help when he decides to throw my legs above my head!

Wear Ben-Wa Balls or Alternatives

In the same vein as the Kegels, I’d like to wear ben-wa balls or some other alternative like the Lelo Luna Beads (both of which I’ve owned in the past). I’d like to wear these separate from the 100 Kegels and I’d like for this time to be a very meditative time, where I’m more focused more on the sensations of the experience.

Kegels can be done rather mindlessly. I’d like to wear ben-wa balls mindfully.

Self-Exam Sessions

Prior to the hustle and bustle of kids, it was common for a quick breast exam or a mirror inspection of my vulvular area. I was also regularly visiting my physician. These things happen far less often (really… never…) and I’d really like to go back to the days of knowing my girlie parts like the back of my hand.

Once a month breast fondling and mirror time is not only a great way to ensure my bits are as healthy as they should be but also wonderful for reassuring me of the beauty of my vagina and breasts 😉

Luckily, every single thing on this list, save for the ben-wa balls, is 100% free and accessible for me – for anyone really, so checking these ones off The List shouldn’t be too hard. It’s just a matter of reminding myself to do them and get them done!

In total, the Sandy Run Spa has 4 women’s and 4 men’s washrooms. On the main floor, there are toilets and baths separated by a shower room. On the top floor, there are smaller washrooms with just toilets and lockers (every toilet is accompanied by a sink).

Probably the best feature of the Sandy Run Spa is the rooftop patio and pool. The pool is huge and beautifully decorated, you can get a hand and/or foot massage or meditate next to it and get your drink on while overlooking Newcrest.

One thing you’ll notice about a great many of my builds on The Sims 4, and especially in Newcrest, is that I have a serious obsession with symmetry. The Sandy Run Spa is a perfect example of this symmetry. It’s something I keep trying to move away from and keep ending back up at.

You can find the Sandy Run Spa on The Sims 4 Gallery. I invite you to download it and place it in your own worlds. If you end up changing things up, I’d love to see what you come up, so please post links to your changes in the comments below. And while you’re at it, be sure to follow me by searching for the Origin ID: ValerieRayne13.

Finally, look forward to more posts on my builds in Newcrest including the Cookout Lookout Lounge, the Cypress Hill Library and the Fern Park MoMA.
