Stay “In the Know” with STD’s

81dfc91a9f285173d1e26291a2f10fd6Sexually Transmitted Diseases & Infections… Just reading the phrase feels uncomfortable. We are conditioned at a young age to believe that STDs are one of the worst things that can happen to us and that if we catch one, our love lives are over. They are intimidating to talk about and are commonly misunderstood.

Having an STD is not a dating death sentence. Plus, all STDs are different; the bacterial ones are curable or treatable, while only a few (the viral ones) are incurable. They all have different symptoms that have different effects on our bodies, while some might not even display symptoms at all. And have I mentioned how common they actually are? According to the American Social Health Organization, one out of four teens in the U.S becomes infected with an STD each year. By the age of 25, half of all sexually active young adults may contract an STD.

Safe Sex Done Right

Screen Shot 2015-09-16 at 1.42.48 PMCondoms are ubiquitous. When it comes to preventing sexually transmitted infections (and pregnancies), condoms are usually the first choice. After all, they are inexpensive, easy to get, and good at their job—most of the time.

Using a condom during intercourse can be up to 98 percent effective in preventing the spread of STIs. But condoms are only as good as their users. When used incorrectly or inconsistently, condoms can be rendered completely ineffective.

5 Reasons to Do Your SEXercises

Screen Shot 2015-09-11 at 9.45.15 PMIn honor of Back to Sex Basics month, it’s time to address that elephant in the room: Your sexual satisfaction.

People seem to think that improving something as monumental as your sex life can only be accomplished by BIG moves, GRAND gestures and HUGE commitments, which is probably why they don’t make them. But I’m going to let you in on a little secret: there is actually an alarmingly simple move that will not only make your sex life better by way of stronger and more frequent orgasms, but is also beneficial to your overall health. So what is this mysterious sex life-saver? A special little squeeze called the Kegel.

Kegel exercises are the internal and controlled contractions of your pelvic floor muscles. The best way to understand the feeling and location of these muscles is to restrict your flow when you’re peeing; the same muscles that contract to stop your stream are the ones you can strengthen with Kegel exercises. One of the best things about Kegels is that they can be done at any time or place discreetly – like while you’re waiting in the airport, sipping a latte, for example.

Your Secret Weapon for Better Orgasms

ss_101759896Out of blue, I got a call one day from a friend’s husband who works at a high end investment firm in Los Angeles. I’d met him at a few cocktail parties but we’d never talked business before.

“Hi Emily, there’s a medical company on the cutting edge of innovation, and they came to us for an investment, and you’re the expert in this sexual wellness space, so it’d be great for to come to our offices to see what you think of these products.”

He’s a more conservative guy, so I was particularly interested that he was calling me to talk sex toys. I drove to his high rise penthouse offices, displaying spectacular views of Los Angeles, and he hands me a stack of boxes that read “INTENSITY: An intimate health and stimulation device” from

“Let me know what you think, I have no idea about sex toys (he whispers under his breath) but this product claims to use some groundbreaking technology and have health benefits. Can you try it and let me know if you think and if it’s worth our investment?”

I thanked him, and left with boxes in hand, and assured him I’d report back with my professional opinion (have I mentioned how much I love my job?)

Wetter is Better: The Real Deal With Lube

a2e902b42ffb117c1bb1b17eda92921bHave you ever questioned your sexual abilities? You know, like “Did I rock her or his world?” or “Are they faking it”? If you don’t, good for you! But if you do ask yourself these sorts of questions more than you’d like to admit, there’s one more question you need to ask: What are you doing to change things up?

While some may say that chivalry is dead, I’ve seen many men who prove quite the contrary.  As a girl, I know it’s lovely to get flowers and have doors held open for us, but I’m thinking of a different kind of courtliness: safe sex provisions.
