Ah, the holidays. We are all conditioned to believe this is the most wonderful time of the year and sure, it has its moments. But if you just so happen to be single, the holidays might take on an entirely new meaning.
Every song, every commercial, and every movie on basic cable paints a picture of the holidays being a time to celebrate with your significant other, leaving uncoupled folks everywhere wondering “What about me? Where’s my holiday happy ending?”
The further we get into November, the more I am reminded of why I love this time of year so much. No, it’s not the descent into deliciously chilly fall weather (it was 87 degrees in LA today). It’s not the arrival of all-you-can-listen-to Michael Bublé Christmas covers. And it’s definitely not the non-denominational, but oh-so-controversial, holiday cups at Starbucks.
No, the reason I adore this month above all others has more to do with the upcoming holiday—or more specifically, what that holiday represents. Continue Reading
I am happy to announce that I have finally found THE ONE. I have to admit, it was rough going for a while. After my rocky history of incompatible pairings and utter disappointments, I often wondered if I would ever find my match, my perfect fit, the one that could keep up with my busy lifestyle and still make me feel happy and safe. I was sick of putting myself out there, time and time again, always starting off so full of hope, but ending up left with a roller coaster of emotions, physical pain and even the occasional rash.
But all of that is behind me now, because I am 2 years into the most successful relationship I have ever been in. We had a few bumps along the way, but I have never felt so safe, so free or so sure of anything in my life. No, I am not talking about my boyfriend (although he and I are doing great, thanks for asking!) I am talking about my current form of birth control. Continue Reading
Proof that dreams really do come true… Now you can find some of my favorite sexy goodies all in one subscription box!
As you may have figured out by now, we get a lot of interesting packages delivered to our office. Whether it’s a carton of SKYN condoms, a load of lubricant or a 3 foot tall plush doll that says “Emily you’re the whole package” when you press his belly (yes, that actually happened), we’re always excited to find out “what’s in the box”. So, when an extra large delivery arrived from Sportsheets, our favorite bondage company, we just HAD to capture the moment.
Live from the Sexual Health Expo, Emily teams up with Seth from JO Lubricant to share some very exciting news… Because what could be more exciting than FREE LUBE, am I right? Continue Reading
It’s hard to believe that, in this day and age, there are any sex acts that could still be considered taboo. After all, last year was deemed the Year of Pegging in popular media. Virtual Reality porn went from being a thing of the future to, well, a reality! Things that were once considered to be sexually deviant or fringe are now becoming blockbuster hits. And according to a recent study, 1 in 5 Americans has been in an open relationship. Still, despite how open and accepting society may seem towards any and all forms of sexual expression, we still have quite a ways to go. Continue Reading
I learn so much from your podcasts! I am 36 and recently separated from a 16-year relationship. After waiting eight months, I decided I was ready to start dating again. A few colleagues of mine recommended some dating apps, so I checked them out. I went on two OKCupid dates and they went horribly. Then I gave it one last shot and started talking to a guy six years older than me. We have been talking for two weeks but haven’t met in person yet. So far, our connection has been great!
So here’s my question for you: Is there a certain timeline to meet this guy and move forward from there? What do you suggest when it comes to going from cyber- and phone-chatting to meeting IRL?

Have you ever heard the saying “You don’t buy the car without taking it for a test drive”? Most of the time, this age old adage is used in favor of premarital sex… An important topic for another day, no doubt.
In this moment, however, I’m applying it to living with a significant other—A journey I recently embarked upon. And let me tell you, if I didn’t believe in the car theory pre-cohabitation, I certainly do now. Continue Reading
