Here come the holidays, whether we are ready or not!
There are two kinds of people during the holidays — the ones that shop ahead, and the ones that shop just days before the event, scrambling to get all those gifts for their loved ones. Sure we all want to see a few big ticket items under the tree, but what about stocking stuffers!? Small gifts can be a great choice for couples, especially when they’re sweet or a little bit spicy!
Working at a sex shop, I have compiled some great naughty and nice items that are sure to spice up any winter night…
Let’s talk about orgasms, or lack thereof, as the case may be. The key ingredient for great sex generally centers around both parties leaving satisfied, yes? According to research published in the Journal of Sex & Martial Therapy (2006), women were about two and a half times more likely to feel sexually satisfied when they achieved orgasm. No surprise there. Unfortunately, this simple task becomes a little more difficult, thanks to something known as the orgasm gap. Continue Reading
As much as we’d like to believe that sex is always an effortlessly romantic affair, that’s sadly just not the case. Sex can be magical… poetic even, but it can also be messy, uncomfortable and downright awkward. So it’s inevitable that by the time you reach the status of expert-level lover, you’ll have at least a few skeletons in your sex closet.
Whether you’re packing up to return to dorm life or have graduated to the school of life, there’s no argument that there are plenty of things left to learn, both in and out of the bedroom. This month, we’re going to be taking it way back to the basics of real-life sex ed: knowing exactly what you like and gearing up with what you need to get there.
True this class doesn’t come with syllabus, there’s no set course description to guide your way, but lucky you – You are going to get a list of required materials to help you get an A+ (and not just for effort). Continue Reading
Lately I have found myself not that interested in sex, and I think I know why. My long-time boyfriend and I have very busy schedules, and we don’t have as much time as we used to in the bedroom. As a result, all of our sex sessions end up being what you might call “quickies”. He is totally happy to get in, get out and move on to the next thing, but these interactions just aren’t satisfying for me. So now when he brings up the idea of sex, I make excuses or try to get out of it.
I’ve tried explaining my feelings to him, but he just doesn’t get it. He thinks that I’m not interested in him sexually, but that’s not the case – I just feel like I need more! Am I being totally unreasonable? What can we do to make sex enjoyable again, for both of us?
Sick of Quickies
Have you ever heard people saying they want to last longer in bed? Did you ever think they were just complaining to begin with? I guess it depends on whom they’re sleeping with. Men orgasm fairly quickly after about 5-6 minutes compared to women who orgasm after 15-20 minutes, meaning that many women may not even reach orgasm before their partners finish. On behalf of men all over the world, I apologize ladies.
Summer, glorious summer, is finally upon us, and there’s something sexy in the air.
In addition to the great weather and time off, this season brings with it feelings of adventure and opportunity. It’s the perfect time for barbecues, beach trips and bikinis. Plus, it’s a proven fact that everything gets sexier in the summer! There are more people out and about, meaning more opportunities to flirt with someone new. Of if you’re already settled down, summer presents endless opportunities to turn up the heat on your sex life!
No matter where you’re getting busy, or who with, no summer sex-capades would be complete without the necessary tools. Here are five sex tips & tricks that are really worth exploring in the sizzling hot days ahead…
They’ve dubbed the foggy weather of this month as June Gloom, but that doesn’t mean you have to feel that way! June is the month that has always signified the end of school, and the beginning of hot weather and summer. Sure, the sun hasn’t joined the party, but there will be plenty of time for that come July.
Until then, don’t try to beat the heat (Embrace it!) with these three fun and simple ways to kick-start your summer in a super sexy way.
It’s true what they say, the finer things in life get better with age. Fine wine, for example, and jazz music, fancy cheese, NPR…. And then, of course, there’s sex. I don’t buy into the whole “sexual peak” thing, but there’s no question that sex becomes infinitely better as you mature.
Women who wrote themselves off as unorgasmic at the ripe old age of 19, blossom into multiple O-hood as they move into their 30’s. I don’t think that women’s vaginas are maturing into sexual perfection, like a $200 block of aged cheddar, I think it has more to do with a combination of lots of practice, increased confidence and, most importantly, better lovers.
There is currently an epidemic that is sweeping the nation – Women everywhere are still not having orgasms.
Sure, conditions have improved since, say, the Stone Age.. But the fact is, men are knocking out orgasms like carnival games while women are forever stuck at the top of the ferris wheel, if they even make it that far. It seems like the most common questions that pop up in the Ask Emily box are pulling at the same thread: How can I finally experience the big O? Why doesn’t my wife enjoy sex and much as I do? Why can I climax on my own, but not with a partner? It all comes back to the case of the missing female orgasm..
