Today’s bonus show features Emily as a host of The Future of Femtech panel a few weeks back at South By Southwest in Austin, Texas – a massive gathering of technology, film, culture, and music.
Human sexuality is the interest and expression of sexual sensation and intimacy that impacts the heart, mind, and body. It is a natural part of human’s social life and is highly governed by the culture’s social norms.
Every society has its own set of rules of behavior on sex, age of sexual consent, sex education, homosexuality, marriage, female desire, etc.
Q: DEAR EMILY,
I’ve been dating my current boyfriend for just about a year now, and he’s amazing! We have great sex, but it’s not always the most exciting. He regularly asks me what I’m interested in, but I don’t know how to approach the topic. We recently took a sex questionnaire (where you compare answers at the end), and it really helped me to get some of my wants out on the table—which he’s been very responsive to—but I’d still like to try some more exciting things, like temperature play and being tied down.
How do I bring these up without (a) scaring the pants off him and (b) making him feel bad? Because I love our sex, I just think it could be more intense and sensual.

There are many people who have taken it upon themselves to lead society into the sexual revolutions of the past and the present. Working at Sex With Emily and with Emily Morse, one of these current leaders, made me want to do a little research on others much like herself. These ladies in our past and present have gone largely unnoticed, or at least haven’t been given the proper recognition, in paving the way for our sexual freedom.
Whether you’re swiping left or right in your dating life it’s hard to neglect the fact that in modern day romance we’re faced with an abundant of options. From real life interactions, apps, dating web services, etc. – there are a variety of interfaces we can utilize to connect with one another. In addition to the evolution of transportation; we can meet dating potentials across cities, states, countries and oceans.
On today’s throwback show, Emily is joined by comedian Erik Griffin from Comedy Central’s Workaholics and the two are talking about dating in the digital world, different types of relationships, and debate whether or not sex is the most important thing in a relationship.
Q: DEAR EMILY,
My boyfriend and I have always had great sex—and had it pretty frequently. But within the last year, with the crazy-busy schedules we have, we’re having a hard time getting on the same page. When we have sex it’s great, but we never seem to be wanting it at the same time.
Since then, my other problem has been something I’ve never had an issue with before: I’ve been getting dry. It doesn’t happen until my boyfriend puts a condom on. He never thought we needed lube, but it’s making sex uncomfortable and hard to enjoy.
What can I do?Thanks!

Though middle school is often crowned the most awkward phase of our social lives as we come to know them, college is arguably a close (if not Lauren B-style Bachelor snatching) second.
As if trying to spread your wings in new environments isn’t enough, navigating the tricky waters of self-discovery in young adulthood gets that much more complicated as sex and dating begin taking the main stage.
