Today, Emily welcomes professional speaker, writer and sex therapist Dr. Ava Cadell to the podcast. Together, Ava and Emily traverse a wide range of topics, including keeping the intimacy alive in your marriage, dealing with sexual guilt and exploring your erogenous zones.
September at Sex With Emily is all about getting back to sex basics, and on today’s show, Emily is giving a lesson on the most essential principle of sex, love and dating: communication! Just like she always says, communication is a lubrication, so let’s grease up our word-wheels and get our conversation cogs turning!
On today’s show, Emily addresses some real relationship hardships regarding sexual hangups, fantasies, marriage and more. How do you keep your partnership happy and healthy when the sex is the only problem?
If I told you I fell in love with someone every day, would you hold it against me? Just a little shout out to Britney Spears! Seriously though, I see my future husband everywhere. I spot him at the mall, school, Starbucks, and more recently, Disneyland! Even though I don’t know these men, they break my heart because most of them are married, straight or not interested. So maybe I need to crush on people more wisely, but these are not the worst by far. My most intense crushes have been on some of my best friends. If you’ve been in this position, I dedicate this blog to you because you’re not alone.
Today’s show is all about traversing the trails of communication, flirtation and, you guessed it, sex! Emily and Anderson take on your pressing sex questions and chew over some interesting new findings in Sex in the News.
Today on the Sex With Emily podcast we’re tackling a handful of complex sex issues, from mismatched libidos in your relationship to sex tips for lovers who still live at home to what to do if your partner’s choking fetish makes you feel uncomfortable. Any of this sound familiar?
Q: Dear Emily,
My boyfriend and I have a great sex life, but there is one issue that keeps popping up. He recently asked me to pleasure myself in front of him, and it’s not the first time he has made this request. I masturbate from time to time, but never in front of another person! I feel like masturbation is such a private activity and trying to do it in front of him feels awkward and forced. The last time he asked, I got angry and told him to do it himself and see how it feels, but my plan backfired because he totally loved it. Why is this such a big turn on for him? And how can I masturbate for my BF without feeling so uncomfortable?
I’ve had my fair share of serious committed relationships, casual sex, short-lived romances and friends with benefits. A recurring staple in my dating game, however, has been the “Almost Boyfriend.” Of all my dating tragedies, heartbreaks and hookup-fails, the curse of the almost-boyfriend has always hurt the most. These pseudo-relationships sting the deepest because they feign real commitment and keep those of us that want more, perpetually deprived. It’s no mystery that countless men and women suffer from commitment-phobia, but with a burgeoning hook-up culture and growing anti-monogamy sentiment this phobia is growing into a full-blown lifestyle choice. Almost relationships of varying degrees are becoming more and more common as less people are opting to settle down with one person for the real deal.
Today’s podcast covers two things everyone loves talking about: penis problems and crazy sex laws! Emily and Menace tell you what scandalous sex acts will get you arrested (or worse) around the world, including a few that are pretty close to home, and discuss some trending penis news. They also tackle a few of your emails on paying for dates, coming clean about faking orgasms and, you guessed it, penis size.
When it comes to married sex versus single sex, is the grass really greener on the single side?
