You think you like someone, go on a few dates, get excited about where things could be going and then… they gradually trickle out of your life — without explanation. We’ve all been the victim of it, and most of us have done it to others: “The Slow Fade,” also known as “Ghosting.”
Q. I’m in a monogamous, heterosexual relationship, and I don’t always (or often) orgasm from intercourse. It really seems to bother my partner. I don’t fake it, because that seems pointless, and he always gets me off before we get to the “main act,” but I can tell he thinks he’s failing somehow. How do […]
Q. I can’t seem to orgasm when me and my partner are having intercourse, but when I involve my hands, I can. I want to have my partner do this to me, and not just have me having to do this to myself all the time. What can I do?
Ever had an email or chat conversation with a friend, talking about meeting up only to have the other disappear into thin air when you go into the details? And not because they suddenly decide they don’t want to see you, but just… I don’t know why. I wish I knew.
Q. My sex drive is bigger than my man’s. When we have sex, I always initiate first and if he gets off first, he’s done and I am left feeling horny, angry, and sad that he doesn’t seem to care enough to help me out or want to satisfy me. I want sexual attention back just […]
Q. My husband and I have had anal sex many times and each time we do, I find myself singing to myself, “I can’t get no satisfaction,” because this helps me to relax and, quite frankly, I can’t get any satisfaction out of this. It hurts so bad. Are there any other tips you can […]
On April 6, 2009, an earthquake occurred near L’Aquila, the capital of Italy’s Abruzzo region. Around 300 people died, with many more injured or left homeless. The earthquake destroyed the town, and its effects are still starkly visible today. On October 22nd, six scientists and a government official were sentenced to six years in prison […]
Q. I want to start having anal sex with my wife. She is scared of trying it. What can I do to help her over her fears? She is afraid of the pain”¦
Thank you notes are important. They acknowledge thoughtfulness, let someone know you’re thinking of them and most importantly say “Thank You.” In today’s world where being gracious and humble are not values practiced regularly, I am standing up and saying thank you notes are important! Keep reading for my reasons why and tips on writing […]
Lots of interesting science news has been making the rounds this week and I just couldn’t choose only one new study to focus on. So, I did what any normal over-achiever does (you all know what I’m talking about) and chose two of them (hm, just two? Maybe I’m not an overachiever). Now, let’s go […]
Once again, I’m going to be tackling some advice that Dr. Laura has given (taken from transcripts on her website ), and look at it from a different, less awful perspective. If you would like some similar not-awful advice, ask me! I am all-knowing. Except when I’m not. But mostly-knowing. The question: “I’m 16 years […]
We’ve all probably watched way more romantic comedies than we’d like to ‘fess up to. Truth is, romantic comedy is my favorite genre. It was good enough for Shakespeare and Tennessee Williams (The Glass Menagerie is a romantic comedy, right?), so it’s good enough for me. One problem: as much as the When Harry Met […]
Q: How do I tell my boyfriend that I want us to change positions more and that I want him to give me oral sex the way I do him?
Babeland is more than just a sex toy shop. The folks who work there are not simply cashiers or shop workers–they’re known as sex educators. And that’s exactly what two Babeland employees, Lauren and Lila, did. I attended and got majorly schooled at the workshop “The Art of Oral Sex” at their NYC SoHo location […]
As the northern hemisphere enters winter, the number of jokes that people will make about the presence of global climate change is about to increase exponentially. It happens every year: some people see snow on the ground and immediately scoff at the idea of global warming. And every year, when faced with these jokes, I […]
