Contest Invites Intimate Yet Memorable Stories-- Nationwide Call For Entries.
Was the night you got engaged an old-time Hollywood romance, where your beloved swept you off your feet? Or did your wedding night come to a soggy conclusion because the water bed sprang a leak? Perhaps you accidentally sent that racy e-mail (complete with photo attachments) to everyone in your address book, including your parents.
Trying something new, maybe a little daring, can be a great way to keep relationships fresh and fun. Intimate moments come draped in a variety of cloaks, some of them romantic, some humorous and some downright embarrassing. It's all part of the game of love, when two people try to add a little spark to their love life. Sometimes a passionate fire is kindled; other times, the house burns down.
In all likelihood, you've shared these stories with friends (well, maybe not the embarrassing ones), and now couples have a chance to tell the country, and possibly win a romantic weekend for two in Las Vegas and other prizes.
The Intimate Moments Contest is a nationwide call for America's romantics -- real-life stories of the most memorable intimate moments between couples (married or single).
There are three categories: Most Romantic, Most Humorous and Most Embarrassing.
Contest submissions will be judged on originality, style and the writers' ability to prove to the judges why their experience is the most romantic, most humorous or most embarrassing. A panel of judges, including romance and relationship expert Dr. Anne-Renee Testa, will judge the entries.
"Trying something new, maybe a little daring, can be a great way to keep relationships fresh and fun," says Dr. Testa. "However, people can sometimes get carried away and end up with a truly memorable story."
To enter the contest, people 18 and older must send in their name, complete address, daytime telephone number, e-mail address, birth date and a 50-word submission detailing their most intimate moment and which category they are entering. Entrants should mail their submission to Intimate Moments Contest, c/o Dream-Brands, 11645 N. Cave Creek Road, Phoenix, AZ 85020.
Or you can enter online by e-mailing your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org. No purchase is necessary.
The contest is sponsored by DreamBrands, makers of Carrageenan, a natural personal lubricant from the sea that enhances intimacy and sexual pleasure. The contest runs from April 14 to September 14, 2007. Official rules and additional information can be found online at www.IntimateMomentsContest.com
