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…
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.
My boyfriend of almost two years is skittish about sex toys. I’ve had them and used them with partners in the past (although those are long gone now) and I’ve been thinking of updating my collection. The problem is, I can’t seem to get my guy on board. He thinks that I want to use toys because I’m bored in the bedroom, or that it means he isn’t doing a good job. The thing is, he IS doing a good job. He brings me to orgasm more than any partner I’ve ever had!
I have been looking online and I really want the Womanizer or the We-Vibe Touch for Valentine’s Day. What do you suggest to help warm him up to the idea?
Thanks so much,

Ah Valentine’s Day… the one day a year to be unabashedly and wholeheartedly invested in celebrating amore. Of course, all of us here at Sex with Emily celebrate love and sex all year long, but even we recognize that Valentine’s Day is extra special. Or at least… it used to be.
From the chubby cherubs to chocolate hearts, everything about this designated day of love has started to feel a bit bland. V-Day has fought off the title of mere Hallmark Holiday for some time now, but a recent survey from epi24 (creators of Womanizer) found that people, women especially, are less interested in Valentine’s Day than ever before. In fact, 41% of respondents said they’re dreading the holiday—and those were just the ones in relationships. Yikes! Continue Reading
Now that we’re right on the cusp of the New Year, with it’s infinite possibilities for redemption, I know some of you are itching to hit the reset button and leave the past year in the dust. Sure there may be parts of 2016 that we’d all like to forget, but why not take a moment to focus on some of the good stuff… Like sex toys! After all, when you’re in the business of pleasure, there’s always some new toy or sensual product to celebrate… Continue Reading
I’ve been binge-watching holiday specials on TV all month, blasting the season’s classics on my daily commute and savoring grandma’s scrumptious peppermint chocolate chip cookies for days now. This can only mean one thing: It’s time to come home for the holidays!
This time of year, people travel all over the world to spend quality time with their friends and loved ones. And traveling is the easy part—once you touch down in your hometown, you know your schedule will be packed with family-friendly activities: elaborate dinners, get-togethers, tree-decorating, last-minute shopping, family photos, dodging questions from your nosey aunt about your (lack of) love life or (lack of) starting a family… You get the picture.

Ah, the holidays. We are all conditioned to believe this is the most wonderful time of the year and sure, it has its moments. But if you just so happen to be single, the holidays might take on an entirely new meaning.
Every song, every commercial, and every movie on basic cable paints a picture of the holidays being a time to celebrate with your significant other, leaving uncoupled folks everywhere wondering “What about me? Where’s my holiday happy ending?”
Not all sex is created equal. There are those nights of sweet relief after six minutes of rolling around before returning to your Amazon Prime, and that’s fine. We won’t disparage what may seem like routine lovemaking, because at least you’re still doing it. Sometimes a basic quickie is the perfect thing – like in the morning, when her hair’s a mess and your breath is stank but you just go at it doggie style before work or the farmer’s market. And that’s nice too.
But then there are those other times…
