sexual confidence


eeb19c37ecea1185365a9f56c801f46d32a17233_mI began having sex at a relatively young age. I was 15 when my boyfriend and I decided we were going to lose our virginities to each other. Well, more like his friends asked when we were finally going to get it over with.
Although it may not have come up for a few months if it was never brought to our attention, I was sure (at the time) that this was who I wanted to go through this life event with. Needless to say, that relationship lasted for maybe one more month before it was over.

From that point on, whenever I’d have sex with someone, it would be on their terms and not my own. All I wanted to do was please, because if he was having a good time, so was I… Or at least, I THOUGHT I was. I wasn’t even aware that my own sexual experience was being put on the back burner. I was young, I had no idea what an orgasm felt like, and the guys I was seeing only had their climax in mind. Continue Reading

It’s easy to forget about the double standards that surround sex when you’re an avid follower of Sex With Emily, especially when you work here. Yet, once I leave the office, it soon becomes abundantly clear that certain archaic ways of thinking about sex still exist.

Whether it’s from conversations I have with friends, cat-callers on the street, or scenes that pop up on TV, I am repeatedly reminded that, as a woman, there are always going to be people making assumptions about my sex life. They will pigeonhole and stereotype and doubt my ability to enjoy sex in a healthy way. They will form opinions, usually uninformed ones, based on what they THINK they know to be true. Because who’s more of an expert on my sex life than strangers?

NEWSFLASH: Women like sex just as much as men. Continue Reading

When most of us think of September, our minds automatically jump to Back to School. And it’s understandable! For most of our young lives, September marked a month for new beginnings and new learning. Sure, the days of Pre-Algebra and Post-Revolutionary American History may be long gone for us, but September is and always will be a great time to learn new things…. Like how to have better sex, for example. And the first step to having an amazing sex life is confidence!

walk-shameCasual sex is all but a given in today’s hookup culture, but a lot of women still walk away from a one-night stand feeling far from satisfied. It’s not because they’re secretly hoping for every tumble to turn into a full-blown relationship. The fact is that 70 percent of Americans have had at least one night of passion with a stranger, but only 22 percent of women report achieving orgasm during these encounters. That’s a lot of ladies left wanting! Continue Reading

article-2291280-188E2ECB000005DC-807_634x800“Dear Emily,

I recently started dating a guy (a great guy, actually!) and things are going really well. There’s only one problem… I’m afraid to have sex with him! We’ve been seeing each other for almost two months now and we still haven’t done the deed. It’s not that I’m not attracted to him or that I’m afraid he won’t respect me. The real reason is that I am pretty sure I’m bad in bed.

I’ve only been with two guys, and neither seemed to be that into the sex. One of them looked downright bored! I like this new guy a lot and would really like to wow him in the sack, but now I’m extremely self-conscious. What if we have sex and it’s terrible and he doesn’t want to date me anymore? I need help! How do I know if I’m terrible at sex? And more importantly, how can I fix it?

Sincerely,
BIB, 24
