Like a lot of women, I didn’t have the most pleasurable introduction to anal play. I was pressured, unprepared, and as a result, found myself in a fair amount of pain. My experience left me figuratively scarred and utterly apprehensive to re-approach any sexual rear-entry. But as I’ve grown sexually and personally, one of my ongoing goals has been opening doors that I had hastily deemed permanently closed. For me, an upstanding symbol of this sexual renaissance is the glorious butt plug. Continue Reading
Hello, I have a confession to make. After compiling several unread text messages and missed calls from old dates and one-night stands; I realized I have a problem. All this time I thought I was just a picky dater and a bad replier, but it’s more serious than that. I’m a serial bencher. Continue Reading
The story itself is very familiar: Girl meets boy, they fall in love, get married and start a family. Then one day, they realize that their sex life is no longer the stuff of fairytales (or steamy romance novels, as the case may be).
Somewhere between building a life, building careers and building a beautiful family, sex somehow falls by the wayside. This becomes even more difficult when one partner’s sex drive remains steady while the others drops to a slow drizzle. What is a couple to do when sex becomes the biggest issue in an otherwise picture perfect partnership?
Here at Sex With Emily, we go through a LOT of sex toys. From penis rings to panty-vibes to high-tech teledildonics (toys that allow people to have sex remotely), we’ve seen them all! It’s not everyday that one comes along and totally sets itself apart from the rest. So when the Doc Johnson Tryst was given the prestigious recognition of “Sex Toy Of The Month” by Cosmopolitan Magazine, we knew we had to give it a try. Continue Reading

With technology getting more and more advanced, a trip to your favorite sex store can get sort of overwhelming. It seems like there’s a sex toy for literally everything these days, although no one’s really complaining about that. We’ve got vibrators and butt plugs (and vibrating butt plugs!) that can be controlled by cell phones via Bluetooth. If you desire a dildo that thrusts, there’s one out there for you. If you want your clit sucked, there’s even a toy for that, too (shout out to the Womanizer)!
I’ve been listening to your podcast for two years and can’t get enough! Your advice for others has always been spot-on, so now I’ve got a question of my own. I’ve recently started to get serious about dating, and I think I’m finally ready to be in a relationship. I’ve met a couple great guys so far, but there’s one issue I keep getting hung up on: sex. I love sex and am very open, but I think that’s the problem. In the past, I’ve gotten into bed with guys pretty quickly, and it’s never turned into anything real. How long do you recommend dating someone before you start having sex? —Dee
To sext or not to sext? That is the question… At least, it used to be. These days, it seems like everyone has a naughty text or two stored in their inbox and according to recent research, this assumption is not far off. One 2015 study in particular surveyed 870 Americans, 88% of whom admitted to sexting at least once in their life. And these weren’t just millennials!
With the rise in dating apps and social media, it’s no surprise that sexting has become a pivotal part of the mating process. When done correctly, sexting can be seen as the modern-day equivalent of a steamy love letter, minus the debilitating hand cramp (Unless of course… Well, you know!) But send the wrong sext to the wrong person and you’ll be forever saved in their mind as awkward, offensive or downright skeezy.
So how do you know if your sexually explicit message will be received with a sizzle or returned with a restraining order? The success of any sext comes down to two important factors: content and context. What are you sexting? Why are you sexting it? And who are you sending sexually explicit messages to? Continue Reading
I’ve always been aware of my bisexuality. Before I knew anything about sexual fluidity or a binary orientation system or the Kinsey scale, I knew that I was attracted to girls and boys. I don’t recall a moment of sexual self-discovery. I never “came out” to anyone. I didn’t struggle to accept myself as queer. My sexuality was just a truth of my life. It was as real and natural as the color of my skin, my shoe size, or pronunciation of my name. Being a “bi” girl was not something I ever struggled to embrace. Continue Reading
It is one of the very few things in existence that garners universal obsession of the masses. It’s reputation is unmatched in its complexity. Some regard it as the holy grail of every prepubescent male. Some seek its amity for the entirety of their lives. Some call it the rubix cube of life.
