So you’re ready to take your sex and dating life to the next level, but need a little help taking that first step? On today’s show, Emily is taking your live calls, dropping the sagest sex and love knowledge to get you headed in the right direction…
The 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
I don’t know about all of you, but this is a question we at Sex With Emily have spent A LOT of time pondering. You see, every time January rolls around, we go straight from “Happy New Year” into full-on cupid mode. Seriously, you should see Jamie in the little wings—It’s adorable.
My point (and I do have one) is that we make it our business to know as much as we can about dating, relationships, sex and love. So it goes without saying that the renowned “Day of Love” falls into our jurisdiction. Continue Reading
It’s that time of year again! The time when that cutie pie Cupid makes his rounds, leaving a trail of romance — and I think we all know what happens next. Restaurants get packed, giant teddy bears sell out like hotcakes and, come Valentine’s Eve, clothes will be coming off.
These lovely traditions were once necessary ingredients for the perfect V-Day, but these days, it seems like the majority of people are cooking up their plans from scratch… That is, if they’re not saying “screw it” and ordering out. The holiday just isn’t as impressive as it used to be. Now it seems like the day of love is bringing nothing but stress, heartache and the inevitable heartburn that follows the entire box of fudge you ate.
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
Except for the small percentage of people who do not take utter joy in eating, the key to most of our hearts is through the good ole’ stomach! I’m talking food, food, food! If you think about it, the majority of dates center around meals, whether it’s a dinner, a lunch, or even a quick snack perhaps. And, if the date is going well, there could possibly be the option for dessert—to go, of course. Continue Reading
Couples 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
