Relationship Advice

3c820c84f45d194f9a28db7c5d09843cThe excitement of Valentine’s Day is winding down, leaving many of you wondering “now what”? You’ve spent the last week showering your partner with gifts, affection and fancy dinner reservations; love was in the air. But now it’s back to your regularly scheduled relationship. *sigh*

The way I see it, couples have two choices: surrender to the post-Valentine’s Day slump OR find a way to make every day the day of love. It really is that simple. Continue Reading

tumblr_nhm5szkh1t1tsnl0do1_500Let’s play a little Valentine’s Day fantasy game, shall we? Don’t worry; this will be super easy and fun.

Here’s how to play: Relax your body… take a deep, deep inhale… let it all out with a sigh. Take a few more breaths until you feel yourself getting languid and relaxed. Now start to imagine your ultimate Valentine’s Day date.

Let’s fast-forward through the dinner and champagne, the eating too much candy or hiding disappointment that someone forgot you don’t actually like red roses. Instead, focus on all the ways your lover makes you feel. Picture your bodies entwined, kissing, maybe playing a little rough before lightly brushing your fingertips over their body. Now hold on to this thought—no, hold on to this feeling—because this is how you plan the ultimate Valentine’s Day. Continue Reading

f6621dc0467f97bbc75bfb27af4fd4c5Couples everywhere have been haunted by images of what the traditional, monogamous relationship should look like. You know, boy meets girl, they fall in love, stay together forever and have babies; The End.

While this idea reflects the majority of relationships out there, it isn’t the only option. An alternative, known as an open relationship, has existed alongside monogamous relationships for quite some time now. Continue Reading

2b2016e0-9835-48a9-9b5b-11947649207aWe, as adults, are all about long-term investments. We invest in a relationship that we believe will go the distance. We invest in our 401k, we invest in our dream homes and our dream cars. And yet, we never think to invest in one of the most vital aspects of our relationship – our dream sex life. We focus so intently on the other pieces of the puzzle, and let sex just fade into the background without even realizing how important it really is. Continue Reading

Sometimes it doesn’t matter how much pleasure our body can experience; if we can’t get our minds on board, some of that pleasure has a tendency to get lost in translation. And the harder we try to bridge the gap, the further apart the two can feel. 
As women, we’re well-know for our ability to multi-task. We’re capable of juggling our homes and our jobs, our families and our friends, while still managing to work in a little time to make magic in the bedroom. But until we can get our minds and bodies on the same page, we will never be able to reach our full pleasure potential. So how do you re-connect the two?
 Sex Coach Pam Costa shares how she brought the erotic energy from her body and mind together into one in her latest Down to There blog.

We grew up hearing bedtime stories about Loch Ness Monsters and unicorns, but we learned to dismiss them as nothing more than folklore and fairytales. As we matured, we faced new nightmares that involved our first kiss, dating our peers and losing our virginity—things we grew up hearing horror stories about. After conquering these milestones, you realize that one person’s doom is not always a shared misfortune. Many of the myths we are led to believe, rather through stories from friends, the media or our own overactive imaginations, are actually doing more harm than good in helping us handle obstacles that really do come our way… Case in point, mismatched libidos.
You’ve heard Pam Costa speak out about her real-life experiences with mismatched libidos. In her latest Down to There blog, she shares more about her journey and lessons she learned on the ancient myths of low libido and relationships.  Continue Reading

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?

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….

hollywoodkissThey say the smallest details in a relationship can make a big impact. Sometimes these details can be a missed opportunity or a perfect moment. Play your cards rights, and you might just get lucky – It’s up to you!
