badsexadviceHow many times have you received completely unsolicited advice on something? Or better yet, advice from someone who swears by their tips as if they are some sort of expert (even when they have no clout)?

Hey, maybe it wasn’t unsolicited; maybe you actually asked for it, or read it on the always accurate Internet. Either way, sometimes the information we receive is… questionable.   Continue Reading

yoga-heartEvery day women are bombarded with images and messages that attempt to “define” female sexuality. More often than not, these depictions are in conflict with one another. Are women supposed to be the ever lusty, pouting, prostrate super models we see in magazines? Are all millennial women just career gals, leaning in during the day, and kicking back at night with a bottle of wine and a handful of Tinder options?

couple-holding-stop-sign-in-bed-298x232There’s nothing wrong with not being in the mood every now and then. Everyone’s libido fluctuates for a range of reasons. Hormonal changes, age, your menstrual cycles and even a heavy meal can make you feel more passion for Netflix than your partner. But if you find that it’s a persistent problem, or if it starts to affect your relationship, it’s important to take the downturn seriously.

The culprit for your lack of longing could also be something you’d never expect!

6360066637797924901085796701_500x500Despite the recent rise in Box Office popularity, there are a still lot of misconceptions out there about BDSM. In the media, it’s often portrayed as high-risk and those who practice it are viewed as disturbed, troubled or damaged in some way (Think Christian Grey screaming “I’m 50 shades of fucked up” and you’ll get the picture). Not so long ago, participation in fetishism and sadomasochism was actually considered a mental disorder by health professionals.  Continue Reading

girl on computerIt’s no secret that pornography is increasingly more accessible to teens in today’s technological age. Before, the only way you were seeing any porn action is if you stumbled across a parent or older sibling’s stash of dirty magazines or snuck into a smut film. Now, the super raunchy, hardcore stuff is really only a few clicks away, and kids today know how to clear their browser histories by the time they’ve reached the eighth grade. The truth is… There is nothing wrong with watching porn. The problem, however, stems from the reality that a lot of teens are using porn, not only to get hot and bothered, but to actually learn about sex.

I was listening to one of your podcasts and was really surprised to hear you advise against the pull-out method. I’ve been using it for most of my sex life and have never had any problems. Same goes for my boyfriend and plenty of my friends! My guy doesn’t like using condoms, so that’s always been our go-to, and I’ve read it’s 96 percent effective. So what’s the deal?

Thanks,
Elena
