Ahh, Valentine’s Day. A holiday centered around celebrating love, new and old. Restaurants are booked solid, florists are shelling out thousands of bouquets, and Hallmark is selling truckloads of cards filled with a variety of ways to say ‘I love you.’ It’s very sweet and romantic, but for those of us who aren’t part of a relationship, well… it can kind of suck.Read More» Posted by Jamie Pityinger | 0 comments
In December the Sex With Emily team wrote a blog sharing their sex and relationship goals for the new year. From making sex a priority to finding that oh-so-coveted Grafenberg spot, there was nothing cliché about their resolutions. Each goal pointed them in the direction of a more successful and pleasurable sex life, which got me thinking. What should be at the top of my sex bucket list for 2016?Read More» Posted by Emily | 0 comments
Well, the fantasy of some of these situations SOUND sexy, but the reality is that well… they really aren’t very sexy at all. Here are a few sexual scenarios that sound fun and kinky at first, but when attempted, are not all they’re cracked up to be.Read More» Posted by Jamie Pityinger | 0 comments
I’m just going to put this out there — I have had quite a bit of mediocre sex.
No disrespect to my past partners, I certainly had a part in it as well. I expected them all to read my mind and KNOW what I wanted, without ever actually telling them what I wanted. And like many women out there, I gave epic orgasmic performances and handed out positive feedback to guys who didn’t even come close to earning it.
And then something wonderful happened. The sex started getting better! A lot of that had to do with the fact that I started to figure out what I liked in bed and became more comfortable asking for it. But there was also a shift in my partners’ bedroom attitudes that made a big difference. Whether I was choosing more considerate guys, or the guys I always flocked to had done some maturing, I can’t be sure. But all of a sudden, my partners genuinely cared about whether I was having a good time. And as a result, I WAS having a good time.Read More» Posted by Madison | 0 comments
For me, the act of crafting resolutions for the new year has always felt a bit cliche (as does writing about them, for that matter). Of course I want to hit the gym more and hit Krispy Kreme less, travel more and work a bit less, get a hedgehog and stop getting parking tickets…. The list goes on and on. Unfortunately the act of making resolutions is often just that. An act. Something we think we’d like to do, but will will probably forget once our favorite shows come back from their winter hiatus.
Even the word “resolution” seems to lack conviction..
“Resolution: A firm decision to do or not to do something”
Nothing sexier than a “firm decision”, am I right?
Maybe that’s the issue with resolutions — They lack a certain sex appeal. Even the ones that may indirectly improve our sex life (like exercising or getting more sleep) fail to excite and inspire us. Maybe if our resolutions were a bit more fun, or involved an orgasm or two, we would be more likely to follow through with them, or at the very least, give em’ the old college try.Read More» Posted by Madison | 0 comments
It’s the iconic bedroom movie scene: sexual tensions are rising, but before things get hot and heavy, the beautiful dame has to go “freshen up.” Everyone knows she’s going to come back in a super hot outfit that will make the unsuspecting hunk go crazy! But what we don’t often stop to think about is how the garter-wearing heroine might be feeling underneath her silk and lace attire… My bet is, pretty freaking sexy.
Despite what you may think, lingerie isn’t just for men. Yes, it provides them with both visual and sexual pleasure, but it also makes us ladies feel sexier and empowered. Wearing lingerie can be an easy way to spice up things in the bedroom, but even if you’re single, it can be a great self-esteem booster to help you feel good about yourself, and proud of what you’ve got.Read More» Posted by Jamie Pityinger | 0 comments
There are two kinds of people during the holidays — the ones that shop ahead, and the ones that shop just days before the event, scrambling to get all those gifts for their loved ones. Sure we all want to see a few big ticket items under the tree, but what about stocking stuffers!? Small gifts can be a great choice for couples, especially when they’re sweet or a little bit spicy!
Working at a sex shop, I have compiled some great naughty and nice items that are sure to spice up any winter night…

The holidays are upon us, the weather is getting colder (in most places), and tweets everywhere are hashtagging #cuddleweather. Seems like the perfect time of year to grab a cup of hot cocoa and snuggle up with your significant other watching Netflix, or in my case… with my Yoshi pillow pet. This holiday season, my sleigh’s flying solo.
For some, it feels like the end of the world to be alone around this time of year. It seems like around every corner there’s some advertisement, song on the radio, or pesky relative reminding you that you’re single. As for me, I’m rejoicing! Being in a relationship around the holidays isn’t all romance and jingle bells like Hallmark makes it out to be; it can actually be pretty stressful. Here are some things I am glad to be missing out on this holiday season.Read More» Posted by Jamie Pityinger | 0 comments
‘Tis the season for holiday-related stress, which has been known to put some serious strain on your sex drive. If you’re in a relationship, you’re sweating about travelling plans, starting new traditions and getting your partner the perfecting gift. If you’re single, you’re probably just trying to make it through the holidays without backsliding and texting your ex.
Save yourself (and your sex life) the stress this season by mixing up your bedroom routine. Exploring new sex moves and sexual desires is a great way to enhance your intimacy and reduce stress over the holidays, whether it’s with a partner or with yourself. And a great place to start is your local adult sex shop!
Not sure if you’re ready to venture into new sex territories? Or just unsure where to start? With all of you in mind, I asked one of my #1 fans (who also works at an adult store) to lend her expertise on how to kink up your holiday season! Enjoy…Read More» Posted by Sex With Emily | 0 comments
I first laid my eyes on a real life Sybian back in January at the Sexual Health Expo, and I can honestly say that it was lust at first sight.
I was walking around the exhibition hall admiring the wide variety of pleasure products, when across the crowded room, a very enticing toy caught my eye. Of course, I had heard of the infamous Sybian before. Dave Lampert, the founder of Sybian, spoke at my grad school, and it had long been my dream to get up close and personal with this mysterious so-called orgasm machine.Read More» Posted by Sex With Emily | 0 comments
