    How To Talk to Your Partner About Your Sexual Issues

    Whether we are in a brand new relationship or have been married for forty years, when it comes to talking with our partners about sex, panic can often set in.

    When we imagine the potential for rejection and drama, taking a risk like that with someone we love can often feel too great. This is probably the reason so few of us do try to share the really difficult stuff of our sexual lives. Here are ideas on raising those hard-to-raise issues.

    When is the Right Time to Give Him Some Direction?

    As my friend Sean says, when it comes to a guy performing oral sex, if you have to ask “what do you like,” it’s already too late and you’re asking the wrong question (Sean likes to joke, “the real question you should be asking is, ‘Can I get you a cab’?”). But I disagree, and so do my other friends. When a sexual relationship is starting out, sometimes you have to ask.

    Reasons Why An Erection May Go Away

    There are few absolute statements you can make about a penis. One might be that penises are unpredictable and unreliable. You may have 100 experiences where your penis (or the penis you're with) responds as you expect and responds in concert with the way the rest of the body feels. But that doesn't mean that the 101st time an erection will not give way to a soft penis before its time. Continue reading

    How Real Is the Sex You See in Pornography?

    Because visual pornography seems to be a part of many people’s early exposure to sexual material (a “fact” that isn’t really verifiable, but nonetheless is taken as true) it is often considered a form of sex education. And because, as adults, most of us don’t get the chance to talk honestly and openly about sex with a wide range of people, many adults continue to believe that what they see in pornographic films represents common sexual practice.

    The right personal lubricant = better sex!

    It's not just a health matter (anal sex without lube can be a risky business for all concerned) – it's a pleasure thing. A well-chosen lubricant can dramatically enhance your sexual experience and make you forever wonder why didn't you use it before.

    Sex without lube is like driving without tyres. It's just about possible, but you won't find it terribly comfortable, you might damage some key equipment and you won't get anywhere very fast.

    Temperature Play Tips For Cool Summer Sex

    You've seen this onscreen sex trope before: A man (it's always a man) slowly drags an ice cube over a woman's naked body, giving the camera an excuse to linger on said naked body. (Think of 9½ WeeksDo the Right Thing, or any number of copycats.) This move is an example of temperature play, a set of techniques used in both BDSM and vanilla encounters to provoke a sensual response through the application of high or low temperatures.

    Should I Be Worried My Partner is Faking Orgasms?

    If you’re worried your partner is faking orgasms, the only real remedy you have is to ask. There is no way to know for sure if someone is faking an orgasm. Even if he was, even if there was some sort of device you could use covertly to distinguish real from fake, what would you then do with the information? You’d have to talk about it eventually.
