Q. 

ezgif.com-resizeHey Emily,

I recently got out of a long-term relationship and jumped into dating—literally! Now I’m seeing three different people, something I’ve never done before, and need some advice on how to handle it.

Is there supposed to be a waiting period in between partners? Can I have sex with two different people in a week (with protection, of course)? If we use my sex toys, can I use them with multiple guys? Also, what’s the etiquette for telling a person I’m not monogamous in a way that won’t hurt them? I just want to be single and date around for a while, but it’s all so complicated!

Any advice would be appreciated,
Jenn

QlwQJDating used to be so simple. We’d meet people through our friends or colleagues, at the grocery store, at work or at school. It was almost always someone with a close proximity to you, so you could rest assured that they weren’t an axe murderer, and after a date or two, it was pretty easy to figure out where you stood with each other.

Dating today, on the other hand, is a whirlwind of opportunity—and confusion.

We meet people through online dating services and through apps, swiping left and right based on a profile we’ve created—a profile that can sometimes feel like a brand we’re trying to sell to potential suitors. When we actually meet this person in the flesh, we have no idea if our relationship is potentially serious or casual, romantic or platonic. The doubt and ambiguity is just too much! We’re so overwhelmed that we blackout; we forget how we got to the coffee shop, and why we even went on this date in the first place. Continue Reading

giphy (99)There are certain things you can always count on from your girl friends.

They understand the healing power of a latte. If you need feminine supplies, they will not rest until the correct product is slipped discreetly into your hand. No matter how busy life gets, they will always down for brunch. And most importantly, if you are experiencing relationship troubles, they will be there at the drop of a hat to listen, analyze and give advice.

Even if it’s three in the morning and you’re freaking out over a text message laced with mixed signals, you know that all you need to do is put out the bat signal — like magic, they will materialize, wine in hand, to help you sort through the mess. It’s a beautiful thing, really. Continue Reading

badsexadviceHow many times have you received completely unsolicited advice on something? Or better yet, advice from someone who swears by their tips as if they are some sort of expert (even when they have no clout)?

Hey, maybe it wasn’t unsolicited; maybe you actually asked for it, or read it on the always accurate Internet. Either way, sometimes the information we receive is… questionable.   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
