As pragmatic men, we like to keep things simple. What you see is what you get, and we say what we mean. And though we strive to be self-sufficient, we sometimes overlook the obvious. For instance, if the only lubricant you own is in your car garage, you’re missing out on better sex, both for you and your partner.
Threesomes seem to be all the rage these days.
Physical touch just became a whole lot more electric. So grateful for neurotransmitters and our pleasure sensors – I had to try out electro stimulation.
Who doesn’t know the scene in Old School when Will Ferrell’s wife catches him running down the neighborhood street screaming “We’re going streaking!”
Maybe you were one of the lucky sports fans who got to witness a drunk college kid make a name for himself by streaking across the football field.
These can be considered examples of exhibitionism, which a good chunk of people have heard of.
Dominance and submission – a way to explore power dynamics and stretch the boundaries of so-called “conventional” sexual roles.
Sometimes the very elements that would be troublesome outside the bedroom can become extremely erotic when played with sexually.
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.
Q: DEAR EMILY,
I have been with my boyfriend for about a year. He recently transferred law schools, so now we’re in a long-distance relationship. I’m so proud of him, but in a shocking twist, not as psyched about the distance. I really value physical touch in love-language-speak and, well, long-distance makes that a bit difficult.
At first, sexting and phone sex were new and exciting for the two of us, but it’s become harder to initiate with him back in school and living with roommates (yes, I know, another glorious shift). Do you have any recommendations for keeping things hot?
Any advice would be appreciated, and thanks again for all that you do!
Amy, 27, SC
Porn – it’s great, it’s entertaining, it’s a turn on. But, if that’s where you’re learning about sex… you’re in for a rude awakening.
I’ve gone down a lot of internet rabbit holes full of vitriol, name calling, and ugly debate. It happens to all of us; we click on the bait, open the comments and voila! You’re reading some sick burns and opinions stated as fact. By far the worst of the antagonistic trolling for knee-jerk reactions I’ve encountered has had nothing to do with politics— it is in mommy groups around the subject of circumcision.
