Just the Tip

Spring has begun, and whether you’re switching up your hairstyle, oiling up for the golden glow you’ll get at the beach or starting a new workout regimen, everyone seems to be doing their part, partaking in the yearly spring cleaning detox.

While I’m all for a good juice cleanse, a fresh new summer shag cut or a membership at the hip new Pilates studio, most people overlook one of the most crucial aspects of their lives that should be cleaned out regularly – their social media and dating websites. Continue Reading

f51b3b0aab7c27f802661cae6bd549cbWe’ve all heard the saying: “Sex is like pizza. Even when it’s bad, it’s still pretty good.”

While clever — and certainly true of pizza — it’s safe to assume this adage was first uttered by a man. After all, with 85% reportedly reaching orgasm during sexual encounters, it makes sense men would have such an optimistic view of sex. Whether it’s Chicago-style, Brooklyn-style or doggy style — if women are serving it, men are probably enjoying it.

Here’s something to keep in mind, though: While your satisfaction is pretty much guaranteed, just remember that your taste buds aren’t the only ones in the bedroom. You’ve got another person to please, and pushing her buttons isn’t as easy as ordering your favorite slice. Continue Reading

“Hey Emily!

I currently live with my boyfriend of five years, whom I love so much. Recently, we completely stopped having sex for almost a year because we were so busy starting our careers. We realized this was a big problem and have been working on ways to improve it, mostly by planning out times to have sex. It’s going well, we’re having sex more often, but now it feels like there’s no spontaneity left. What are some ways we can fix this and bring the excitement back?

Thanks,
J

Let me preface this by saying, good for you, J! It’s great that you and your partner were able to recognize the problem in the bedroom and are now working to make sex a priority. It might not feel like the stuff of romance novels—“Today’s To-Do List: Exercise, cook dinner, fold laundry, have sex”—but the good news is, you’re on the right track! Continue Reading

walk-shameCasual sex is all but a given in today’s hookup culture, but a lot of women still walk away from a one-night stand feeling far from satisfied. It’s not because they’re secretly hoping for every tumble to turn into a full-blown relationship. The fact is that 70 percent of Americans have had at least one night of passion with a stranger, but only 22 percent of women report achieving orgasm during these encounters. That’s a lot of ladies left wanting! Continue Reading

05e0a1d0-0e8e-0132-0823-0eae5eefacd9Working at Sex With Emily, one can’t help but notice certain trends in the concerns folks are having between the sheets. Something that has been circulating the “Ask Emily” inbox lately has been about how to last longer. This is an issue that people tend to view as an older man’s struggle, but early ejaculation actually something that affects men of ALL ages—especially those on the younger side. In fact, it is usually younger men that find themselves “poppin’ off” a bit earlier than they would like.

I’ve heard Emily cover this topic so much, I thought I’d take a crack at it. From one twenty-something to all you other twenty-somethings out there, here are a few ways to make your sexual sessions last and last. Continue Reading

Screen Shot 2016-04-04 at 4.45.14 PMLet’s be real– Everyone has a list of things they eventually hope to try in their sex life. One could even call it a sexual bucket list. This list can include anything from toys you want to play with to positions you want to try, even places where you’d like to get down and dirty. And while I’m pro-Carpe Diem and think having a sexual bucket list is about the coolest thing ever, my germaphobic instincts kick in when researching some of the things on my own list. Of course, having fun is important, but safety and health come first.  It’s important to be aware of the risks being taken when having sex in places that may not be as clean or sanitary as your bed is. I’ve put together a list of locations I think should be blacklisted from sexy time .*Sigh* no matter how fun they may be. Continue Reading

As you all know by now, I’m a big fan of Kegel exercises. I believe that strengthening your pelvic floor muscles is one of the best things you can do you for your sex life! A strengthened pelvic floor leads to stronger vaginal muscles, which help to make you feel tighter down there; it can also lead to women experiencing stronger, more frequent orgasms and, for some women, can actually heighten sexual arousal. Continue Reading

top 10 fetishesMost people just want to know if they fall on the sexually “normal” spectrum, typically to justify what’s going through their mind when they are fantasizing. The truth is, there is no normal when it comes to sex; the only constants are diversity and variation, because we are all different in our sexual desires! As long as there’s mutual consent and satisfaction with your partner, it really doesn’t matter what you chalk up to normal. Continue Reading

Leap Day 1st picHappy Leap Day!

Here’s a fun Leap Day fact for you: According to Irish folklore, February 29th is considered to be “Ladies’ Choice Day”, the one day where it is appropriate for women to ask men to marry them… That’s, uhh, cute? In 2016, this idea for role-reversal seems kind of silly — As far as I’m concerned, every day is “Ladies Choice Day” — but it’s still a fun idea to play around with, especially in the bedroom.
