Him: Scowling. You’re late. We were supposed to be at the Smiths a half hour ago. It’s business!
You: Miffed. Well it’s not my fault – I had to stay late at work!
A charming couple you’ll be tonight. Forced smiles to the Smiths and daggers to each other.
No fun between the sheets tonight, nuh-uh. It’s a toss-up right now if you’ll even end up in the same bed.
Too bad. The Smiths are good company and it could have been a relaxing, enjoyable… Continue

A new study published in the Journal of Health and Social Behavior
says that people who get married and stay married may enjoy better health than the perpetually single. However, those who lose their spouse through divorce or become widowed fare worse than those who never marry. Jumping back into union does seem to lessen some of the health effects of divorce. Marital history was linked to… Continue

conflict: kuh n-flikt; verb.
To come into collision or disagreement; be contradictory, at variance, or in opposition; clash
Conflict has the power to tear apart even the most in love couples and it also has the power to bring people closer. Lets face it, every relationship has conflict and if it doesn’t, that would be a cause for alarm. With no conflict, a relationship can get stagnant and even boring. Each member of a couple brings their own feelings, thoughts and opinions into… Continue

For the past week, I have scoured the internet blogs with the intent of discovering what people have to say about the recent choices of Steve McNair and the impact of these same choices. It is interesting to see how angry and disgusted people are, that he has been given a heroes farewell...To read this blog in its entirety go to http://www.supporttm.com/Blog/index.php to comment.

Him: “How was your day?”
You: “Oh, you know, same-old, same-old.”
I know, you’re bored with your day, you’re tired, the last thing you want to talk about is your day.
But he’s interested. And he won’t stay interested unless you start sharing. . .
It’s up to you. You don’t have to give him an hour by hour rundown, you can chat about something you noticed on your drive home, or the Web article you read on break, or the gossip about the new… Continue

Every time I look at a guy while he’s talking his “game” to me. I wonder, “Does he get it?” And if I ask that question all of a sudden, would he even understand what I’m talking about.
I know that as he’s talking he’s probably (one) trying to picture me naked, (two) wondering if I’m as freaky as the books that I write and/or (three) wondering how fast he can get that freak in the nearest bed.
While I’m looking at him talk, I’m wondering (one) does he have good teeth (two)… Continue

I popped in on my colleague, Susan Naylen Sorrell, who owns a wonderful, mom-friendly sex shop in Calgary called, A Little More Interesting
With a mischievous glint in her eye she said, “Trina, you have to watch this!” And sent me home to review, the Pirates 2 Stagnetti’s Revenge; a four disk porn epilogue that is a spoof on The Pirates of the Caribbean series.*
Upon arriving home, my thirteen month old… Continue

I think that’s always been my fear and the only reason why I never get serious any more.
I mean I pride myself on memorizing books by the like of Gregory Godek http://www.1001waystoberomantic.com and Laura Corn http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/search-handle-form/002-5224313-4224027 but I know when I do all this for my man will he return the romantic suggestion.
Now I know and understand once you do one romantic gesture you do it to express your appreciation for this… Continue

While speaking at the Taboo Sex Show, a colleague mentioned a discussion with her morning waiter from our hotel restaurant. When he found out what she was selling at the show, he confessed no woman he has met was “perfect” enough for him.
As such he decided the best compromise was to buy a perfectly proportioned blow up doll. Problem was it was going to cost him $10,000 USD plus. He had been saving from his two waitering jobs since and had almost come up with the entire amount. He… Continue

I guess I was lucky because I base every kiss that I get from a guy from the first kiss I ever got.
His name was Leroy and I thought he was just so cute, but he never paid any attention to me. I was twelve and he used to come over my best friend’s next-door neighbors house every once in a while during the summer. For two summers I waited for him to pay attention to me.
I’m a lioness. I do the hunting without them knowing their being hunted. I made sure he saw my new… Continue

In Algebra, we get the formula of:
A + B = C
Last night, I was speaking with a friend. Maybe I was tired; maybe I was on a “weed high” (although I don’t smoke or inhale, LOL), where my brain was just thinking deeply on different subjects.
So let me see if I can get u to understand where I’m coming from.
If C equals “Relationship Maturity” what is A and B?
And if you figured out what A and B was, could you apply this formula to not only the… Continue

Instead of writing about the first time i had puppy love, i'm going to write about the first time i knew i was unconditionally in love at first sight. I never really knew how powerful an emotional love was until I had so much hate in me I couldn't see straight.
a better title for this would be:
An Ode to My Love Prophet
(the person who taught me love)
The first person I fell in love with was my son. Through my pregnancy of him, I hated men. My spirit had… Continue

Is your vagina fully aroused before you start having intercourse?
Women (and men) assume that because she’s had an orgasm that her orgasmic platform is properly aroused. It’s usually not the case. It takes the average woman between 10 to 15 minutes for her orgasmic platform to fully engorge with blood (a man's penis takes approximately 30 seconds to one minute). The average couple sex lasts for 10 to 12 minutes, meaning sex is usually over just as she's getting properly… Continue

Did you know...
Doing Kegels for two minutes a day will raise both his and her arousal, desire and make for bigger, better orgasms.
Just like any muscle in your body, if you don't 'exercise' your vaginal canal or penis, those muscles will begin to atrophy. Doing Kegels daily brings blood flow to those areas and increases awareness, which makes it easier to become aroused. And because you're exercising those muscles, your orgasms will become… Continue

I was sad to see the article on Hitched about how kids negatively effect marriage. A study released last week showed that for 90% of couples their level of marital satisfaction dropped once they had children. John Gottman, from the University of Washington, reported that the divorce rate spikes for couples just after the birth of their first child.
So what's the deal? Isn't having children one of the reasons why we got married? But here the research is showing us that having children… Continue

Local Couples Group Supports Marriages
The initial thought to write a relationship book came to our couples during our annual couples retreat. Imagine four couples settling down to a quiet dinner at our favorite bed and breakfast when a lively discussion develops from recent conversations we have recently had with friends and co-workers asking how they could receive the same monthly marital support that our group has benefitted from the past 14 years. A mere five years later, our… Continue

Hey Dr. Trina!
Since my ex (5-6 years ago) I have had trouble letting go and having orgasms. Some background is that I used to have no trouble having orgasms on top riding a man, but then he said it has always been uncomfortable for him. This was two years into our relationship and I took it very personally. I have never been able to orgasm with oral sex but only started enjoying oral sex with my last boyfriend.
The long and short is that I can't orgasm with a man unless I use a… Continue

My fiance and I have been engaged for a year now, and all we've done since moving in together is fight and I mean nasty fights, he always has to be right, he belittles me all the time, we're in the middle of planning our wedding and we're already having major problems! Isn't this suppose to still be the honey moon stage??? And sometimes I get to the point were I feel it's not even worth hurting as much as I do.
