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.
If you thought Valentine’s Day was hard when there was only two of you, where do you turn for tasteful tips when you’re in a thrupple? Or have a spouse and a girlfriend?
Back in December, we here at Sex With Emily, asked you all to reflect on your sex life over the past year to see what you liked, what you didn’t, and what you could do to change things for the better. Then, we wanted to know what steps you were going to take to make sure 2018 was the year you became the best lover yet – with a partner and with yourself. Of course, we also made pledges of our own.
Q: DEAR EMILY,
This has always been a huge insecurity of mine: moaning and noises during sex. The only sound I make is if my breathing picks up naturally.
I never moan during sex and try my hardest to let out a noise when I orgasm, but it just feels so forced and fake to me. I’m so focused the whole time that if I think about it, I just end up feeling insecure. My long-term boyfriend has always told me he doesn’t care that I don’t, but do guys really mind pretty much silent sex?
What are your thoughts?
Which came first: the chicken or the egg?
Most of us can agree it’s pretty hard to decide, but when it comes to sex and relationships we can find ourselves asking the very same question. Or a variation of it, anyway.
In the sometimes testy trials of sexpectation versus reality, it goes without saying there are countless factors at play.
From comfort and connection to chemistry and more, each of these elements pour into the grand-ultimate component of all— satisfaction.
