Spring has begun, and whether you’re switching up your hairstyle, oiling up for the golden glow you’ll get at the beach or starting a new workout regimen, everyone seems to be doing their part, partaking in the yearly spring cleaning detox.
While I’m all for a good juice cleanse, a fresh new summer shag cut or a membership at the hip new Pilates studio, most people overlook one of the most crucial aspects of their lives that should be cleaned out regularly – their social media and dating websites. Continue Reading
We’ve all heard the saying: “Sex is like pizza. Even when it’s bad, it’s still pretty good.”
While clever — and certainly true of pizza — it’s safe to assume this adage was first uttered by a man. After all, with 85% reportedly reaching orgasm during sexual encounters, it makes sense men would have such an optimistic view of sex. Whether it’s Chicago-style, Brooklyn-style or doggy style — if women are serving it, men are probably enjoying it.
Here’s something to keep in mind, though: While your satisfaction is pretty much guaranteed, just remember that your taste buds aren’t the only ones in the bedroom. You’ve got another person to please, and pushing her buttons isn’t as easy as ordering your favorite slice. Continue Reading

In 2012, I got one of the more surprising calls I’ve received in a career full of surprises: could I come on Loveline as a weekly guest co-host?
I was, honestly, thoroughly intimidated; since the moment I launched Sex with Emily in 2005, Loveline had been a touchstone. Rarely a day passed that someone didn’t say, “Oh, so is your show like Loveline?”
In my time on the show, I’ve learned not only about a phone sex operator and avid semen collector who received weekly “gifts” from her clients, but also that Drew Pinsky and Mike Catherwood are even more inspiring than Loveline die-hards know. Continue Reading
I currently live with my boyfriend of five years, whom I love so much. Recently, we completely stopped having sex for almost a year because we were so busy starting our careers. We realized this was a big problem and have been working on ways to improve it, mostly by planning out times to have sex. It’s going well, we’re having sex more often, but now it feels like there’s no spontaneity left. What are some ways we can fix this and bring the excitement back?
Let me preface this by saying, good for you, J! It’s great that you and your partner were able to recognize the problem in the bedroom and are now working to make sex a priority. It might not feel like the stuff of romance novels—“Today’s To-Do List: Exercise, cook dinner, fold laundry, have sex”—but the good news is, you’re on the right track! Continue Reading
