Relationship Advice

receiving

Our parents taught us to say “please and thank you” everywhere we go – But do we really mean it? 
Celebrating a day of gratitude with scrumptious stuffing and mashed potatoes can put us very much in the mood for gratitude, but it’s only one day (or weekend) out of the year…
So how do you apply these lessons all year long, both in your relationship and in the bedroom? Trying a more hands-on approach to our beloved holiday might be just what we need to learn our lesson. 
Sex coach and recent podcast guest Pam Costa shares how she learned a new act of gratitude to practice year-round with the help of an erotic dinner in the latest Down To There blog…

circusWe tend to think of game-playing as a just-for-kids-activity, but newsflash: Adults can benefit from a little playtime, too! If love and sex is all a game, are you actually having fun with it? Sometimes you need to channel the good old days and let your imagination run wild.
Maybe you feel out of touch with your body lately. Maybe you’re holding back from asking for what you want from a partner. No matter what is holding you back, you need to rediscover the excitement in your life before it’s GAME OVER. So… Are you ready to play? 
Sex coach and recent podcast guest Pam Costa shares how playing like a kid helped her bring the fun back to the bedroom in the latest Down to There blog…

strawberryHow well does your partner know your body? If you had to think about it, they probably don’t. I mean, do you think you know your partner’s body any better? Gotcha!
Now I don’t want to start guilt tripping you or anything, but seeing as our bodies are hard-wired for pleasure, it’s about time we start paying attention to what makes them tick. Next time you embark on a full-body exploration between the sheets, take notice of how your partner is responding to your best moves. Does his back curve when he’s on the edge of orgasm? Do her legs twitch when you’re teasing her clitoris? Our bodies are always sending signals during sex. Can you read the signs?
You don’t need to be a fortune teller to read your partner’s body language, just stay focused.  Pam shares how using all her senses helped her be more present in the bedroom in the latest Down to There blog….

Hi Emily,

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?

Thank you,
Laura in LA Continue Reading

Version 2

If you think you’re having too much sex with someone you love, it’s could be a sign that something’s off in the bedroom. Big or small, any unresolved issues or insecurities can be holding you back from having brag-worthy sex. And if you find that something feels off, you have to confront it head on. 
Pam shares what happened when she realized that sex had started to lose it’s flavor – and how expressing her desires helped to get it back – in the latest Down to There blog.

relationship-adviceHave 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.
