Screen Shot 2016-01-12 at 4.27.47 PM2015 was a year filled with growth, education, and new experiences, both in the bedroom and at the office… at least for the Sex With Emily team. As winter marches forward into spring, the new year is in full bloom and we find ourselves in one of the fanciest seasons of the year: awards show season. So, as a nod to the Oscars, the Emmys, the Grammys & the Golden Globes, we’re commemorating one of our biggest areas of growth this year: the Sex With Emily YouTube channel.

In case you missed any of our newly produced videos, (or were unaware we even had a channel) we’re giving you another chance to get acquainted with our fun and vivacious videos. Without further ado, the winners of the first SWE Video Awards!

True, we don’t have a daring distinction among the seasons in Los Angeles, (some would even go as far as to say our seasons consist of summer and “not summer”) but there are still bountiful amounts of ways to appreciate the autumn air with your special someone.

From horror movie marathons’ to sexy costume role play, here are some fun ideas for fall dates, no matter what city you live in!

Screen Shot 2015-09-11 at 9.45.15 PMIn honor of Back to Sex Basics month, it’s time to address that elephant in the room: Your sexual satisfaction.

People seem to think that improving something as monumental as your sex life can only be accomplished by BIG moves, GRAND gestures and HUGE commitments, which is probably why they don’t make them. But I’m going to let you in on a little secret: there is actually an alarmingly simple move that will not only make your sex life better by way of stronger and more frequent orgasms, but is also beneficial to your overall health. So what is this mysterious sex life-saver? A special little squeeze called the Kegel.

Kegel exercises are the internal and controlled contractions of your pelvic floor muscles. The best way to understand the feeling and location of these muscles is to restrict your flow when you’re peeing; the same muscles that contract to stop your stream are the ones you can strengthen with Kegel exercises. One of the best things about Kegels is that they can be done at any time or place discreetly – like while you’re waiting in the airport, sipping a latte, for example.  Continue Reading

Screen Shot 2015-09-03 at 11.24.24 PMWhether you’re packing up to return to dorm life or have graduated to the school of life, there’s no argument that there are plenty of things left to learn, both in and out of the bedroom. This month, we’re going to be taking it way back to the basics of real-life sex ed: knowing exactly what you like and gearing up with what you need to get there.

True this class doesn’t come with syllabus, there’s no set course description to guide your way, but lucky you – You are going to get a list of required materials to help you get an A+ (and not just for effort).  Continue Reading

To keep the heat at maximum (not in the house, but in your relationships), I’ve got some fun & sexy date ideas for you and your lucky accomplice!

While most of these fun activities for two are based in Los Angeles, there are tons of events to sub in when planning summer nights out in different cities.

dcf8cfd4f5815941593061543c558aa7Ever wondered what the next generation of sexually active young adults are up to? What are they into? How are they getting busy? And most importantly, are they practicing safe sex?

You’re not the only one! The company that makes and manufactures Lifestyles and SKYN condoms conducted its annual sex survey for 2015, and this year they measured the bedroom habits and preferences of millennials. As this specific age group makes up 60% of the company’s buyer base, Lifestyles thought conducting the survey on millennials would provide insightful results. The results are both interesting and exciting, full of fun facts and promising information for the future, most notably in that females are quickly closing the orgasm gap like never before! You go, ladies.

Screen Shot 2015-07-05 at 11.43.13 PMIt’s been 17 years (to this month) that the legendary Sex and the City first hit TV screens via HBO in 1998. Sex and the City was one of those shows that you really either swore by or hated. I was a die hard fan, believing that if I too chose a journalistic career I would inevitably live the fabulous Carrie Bradshaw life: an exciting excess of men, shoes and Cosmopolitans. But were all of the lessons that unfolded accurate or even realistic? Let’s take a break from mourning our nonexistent Carrie-approved shoe collections to weigh some of the phallus-related fallacies that existed in their world of the Upper East Side.

Here are 3 things that we definitely didn’t learn from the show, since they were inaccurate! Continue Reading

June is the month that has always signified the end of school, and the beginning of hot weather and summer. Sure, the sun hasn’t joined the party, but there will be plenty of time for that come July.

Until then, don’t try to beat the heat (Embrace it!) with these three fun and simple ways to kick-start your summer in a super sexy way.

Screen Shot 2015-05-27 at 1.21.35 AMIt’s a changing world out there. While some may say that chivalry is dead, I’ve seen many men who prove quite the contrary.  As a girl, I know it’s lovely to get flowers and have doors held open for us, but I’m thinking of a different kind of courtliness: safe sex provisions. Is it the man’s responsibility to come equipped with protection?
