There are so many different scenarios to play around with – from service-oriented to pain-focused to… financial?
It’s all about finding the kind that lights a fire in your loins, so to speak (if that’s what you’re determined to do).

Q: DEAR EMILY,

This has always been a huge insecurity of mine: moaning and noises during sex. The only sound I make is if my breathing picks up naturally.

I never moan during sex and try my hardest to let out a noise when I orgasm, but it just feels so forced and fake to me. I’m so focused the whole time that if I think about it, I just end up feeling insecure. My long-term boyfriend has always told me he doesn’t care that I don’t, but do guys really mind pretty much silent sex?

What are your thoughts?

When it comes to sex toys, most are made for a certain gender or person in mind, so while you can always use these accouterments with a partner, it seems like one person is getting a little more out of the experience.

Which came first: the chicken or the egg?

Most of us can agree it’s pretty hard to decide, but when it comes to sex and relationships we can find ourselves asking the very same question. Or a variation of it, anyway.

In the sometimes testy trials of sexpectation versus reality, it goes without saying there are countless factors at play.

 

From comfort and connection to chemistry and more, each of these elements pour into the grand-ultimate component of all— satisfaction.

Q: DEAR EMILY,

While I have been masturbating since the beginning of high school, I’ve never had sex. The thing is, I rarely fully get off. I think the only time I have was while using a shower head. I use the Touch by We-Vibe, but once I can feel an orgasm coming on, it becomes harder and harder to get there because my clit becomes too sensitive.

Do you have any tips to help overcome this?

Thanks,

Rachel, 24, NC
