On today’s show, Emily is talking about the most common fantasies we all have and what makes them so hot– plus, she’s taking your calls. So, what’s your fantasy?
Even the juiciest, most exciting sex lives can get a little stale every now and then. The same positions, the same toys, the same dirty talk… it can become a routine, and most people don’t find routine too sexy.
Q: “Dear Emily,
In many of your Podcasts, I’ve heard you talk about “Jackhammer Sex”, and how men should stop doing it immediately. After hearing it for the third or fourth time, I realized something. My partner is guilty of the Jackhammer, too! I thought it was totally normal to have sex this way, and didn’t really mind it, but now I’m wondering.. If not the jackhammer, then what? What are some alternatives to Jackhammer sex?

When looking to reach an orgasm, the penis and vagina are often the first places we think to go. So what would you say to there being another dynamic, yet overlooked, power player that can step up to the pleasure plate just the same?

Sex and play are a natural combination. The more playfulness you can bring to the sex you are having, the better. Not only because it makes sex better, but also because studies show that play enhances overall emotional well-being.
As the sex therapist and bestselling author, Dr. Mike Dow said, “Sex is the way that adults play.”
So let’s get playing…
Q: DEAR EMILY,
First off, I love the show – thank you for everything you do! I’ll jump right to it – my husband has been struggling with erectile dysfunction for a few years now and it’s taking a toll on both of us. I want to stress that he hasn’t been ignoring it – he’s had prescriptions for both Viagra and Cialis, and they usually do the trick. However, the results have been less reliable lately.
The bigger issue, though, is that I think the situation is getting him depressed.
He’s 56 and until this started, we had a very active sex life. I’ve been listening to you for a while, and I know that communication is a lubrication – so we talk about it often, but that’s led to some tense situations and now we’re both feeling the weight of this condition.
I want to come up with a way to help him, or at least let him know that he’s not letting me down, even though that’s what he winds up thinking every time I bring it up. Help me do what’s right here, Emily!
