Recently, I was on a Zoom call for a class on vulnerability. The facilitator asked us what we are doing during this pandemic to improve an area of our lives. I realized that my answer was unique: I have been working on strengthening my pelvic floor.
You may not realize, but exercising your pelvic floor is something you can do for yourself during this stressful time. All genders benefit from strengthening this area, as it affects your health in a variety of ways.
A strong pelvic floor can help support female organs, as well as the bladder. It may help prevent UTIs – which can get in the way of pain-free sex. Even better, a strong pelvic floor may help support a better sex life, affording better orgasms and increased genital sensitivity.
If you have a penis, a stronger pelvic floor can help with better range of motion for thrusting, and allow you to ejaculate further and with more control! Woohoo!
Let’s get into two ways you can strengthen your pelvic floor.
Orgasms are amazing – there’s no doubt about it. It’s almost crazy to think our bodies are capable of feeling such intense waves of pleasure. They’re almost indescribable.
Even when you try, no words actually do them justice. You just have to experience for yourself.
Now I’m figuring out what turns me on, what movements I like, and what doesn’t work. I even have a wonderful partner who is totally on board to help me figure it out.
Sometimes when I masturbate, or when my partner fingers me to climax, this weird thing happens: My body spasms, and it’s kind of painful (usually in just the pelvic area).
I can’t hold my vibrator to my clit any longer or I push my partner’s hand away, even though I feel that I could have gone deeper into the orgasm. It totally keeps me from just melting into the experience.
I’m wondering if I’m pushing myself to climax before I’m fully warmed up? Is that a thing? Or is this a serious issue that I might have to get looked at?
Like a lot of women, I didn’t have the most pleasurable introduction to anal play. I was pressured, unprepared, and as a result, found myself in a fair amount of pain. My experience left me figuratively scarred and utterly apprehensive to re-approach any sexual rear-entry.
But as I’ve grown sexually and personally, one of my ongoing goals has been opening doors that I had hastily deemed permanently closed. For me, an upstanding symbol of this sexual renaissance is the glorious butt plug. Continue Reading
Sometimes, there’s a moment in our lives where an idea seems to fall out of the sky, hitting us on the head, making us wonder how we’ve never thought of it before.
These moments are much like the apple falling on top of Isaac Newton, discovering gravity. While his was a bit more scientific (and crucial to humanity itself), others come in smaller forms, in many different areas.
We all have these moments, where we can finally breathe knowing we figured something out – even in our sex and dating lives.
On today’s show, Dr. Emily is giving you a sexy dose of love in the time of coronavirus. Right now, things are very uncertain, but what we are certain about is the people who love us – our friends, family, and partners – so she’s here to give you some peace of mind on how to use this time to your advantage. Plus, she’s answering your sex & relationship questions.
Masturbation has always been a touchy subject in relationships. How exactly do you go about it when you’re having sex on a regular basis? Does masturbating mean that you aren’t that into your partner? Does it mean your partner doesn’t satisfy your needs? What if one partner does it all the time and the other has never even tried?
Here are some very valid reasons to get your partner (or yourself!) on the masturbation train
