She Wants Oral Sex

Here's a very interesting reader question:

“My new boyfriend doesn’t like to give oral sex. I don’t think I’ll be very satisfied without it, but I don’t want to pressure him to do something he doesn’t want to do! How do I handle this?”



My Response: I would bet that he either doesn’t feel very confident in his oral sex ability or he had a bad experience that turned him off of giving oral sex.



You need to have a conversation, outside the bedroom, to find if it is… Continue

Bet you didn't know this about vibrators...

How hysteria was once treated…



Vibrators got their start during the industrial revolution as medical devices and were used to treat hysteria in women. Hysteria was a catchall diagnosis that included a wide array of women’s medical complaints, from simple irritability to debilitating physical weakness. Many medical experts believed these symptoms were caused by a prolonged lack of sexual gratification. Ironic given that acceptable sexual relationship existed only within marriage and… Continue

How can I talk dirty to my partner?

Glow magazine has me as their sex expert. This month's question is: “My partner wants me to talk dirty but I find it really embarrassing. I’d like to try it for him, but where do I start?”



My Answer:

The rules around dirty talk: Start small and go slow.

How to deal with online flirtation

Question: What kind of effect are online flirtations having on couple relationships? What advice do you offer to couples who want to have fun in social spaces but don’t want to torpedo their own relationships?



Dr. Trina:
My best advice is: if you can’t tell your partner what you’re up to then don’t do it. If you can chat easily about the flirtation then it should be okay.



I would suggest never do anything outside of your relationship in secrecy. It’s… Continue

Valentine’s Day: A Chocolate State Of Mind

A recent Italian survey conducted by the Catholic University in Campobasso, found that 6.7 grams of dark chocolate per day (about a half a bar per week) was the ideal amount for a protective effect against inflammation and subsequent cardiovascular disease. As if I needed another reason to eat chocolate.



With chocolaty cosmic-ness, this study came out only a few days after the death of one of the chocolate world's great leaders, Robert Steinberg. Steinberg (61) was co-founder of… Continue

Sex is so much more than an orgasm

Here are more questions from my interview with The Stephen and Chris Show.



Chris: What’s the difference between single woman sex and married woman sex?



My Answer: When you think about how the average person learns to have sex, it was a short time period encompassing a small amount of knowledge. That limited learning is what we take and use for the rest of our lives. This single-sex formula works great when we are… Continue

What inspired you to write the book?

The second question Chris, from The Stephen and Chris Show, asked me was why I wrote my book.



Here's my answer:

I wrote this book because of my own sexual difficulties after only a few years of marriage. I knew the minute I met my husband that he was “the one” and everything about our relationship, including the sex, was amazing. Yet three years after getting married our sex life became almost… Continue

How to Talk to Your Partner About a Sexual Dysfuction

What are some practical ways couples can deal with their struggles in the bedroom?



It’s tremendously difficult for the average couple to talk about a sexual dysfunction—whether it is an erectile problem or an inability to orgasm. Your best first step is to educate yourself on what is going on with your body; then educate your partner and together have a conversation about what you can do about your situation.



There are plenty of books or go on the internet… Continue

Why it is important to communicate about sexual difficulties

What happens if couples ignore erectile problems, a low or no sex drive, or difficulty reaching orgasm?

Quite simply, it can devastate even the most solid of couples.



When people lose touch with their sexuality and sensuality, the quintessential intimacy between a couple is lost. A marriage can function without sex but it cannot function without intimacy and touch.



Erectile problems usually are a big red flag that something is not working on the man’s body. For… Continue

Is Oprah’s Audience Really that Sexually Naïve?

Laura Berman, PhD, intelligent, beautiful, well spoken sex therapist was on Oprah November 3rd, 2008.



I was desperately jealous to see Dr. Berman on Oprah and not me. (Oprah’s producers called about fourteen months ago—one month before I gave birth to my son and for whatever reason things never worked out. It still smarts to think about the potential loss…)



So I hope what I'm about to say doesn’t come across as sour… Continue

Do couples have unrealistic expectations about sex?

Do couples have unrealistic expectation about sex -- and how do we deal with those expectations?



We live in a very sexualized society. In the last twenty five years we’ve come to value part of our self worth based on our sexuality and sexiness.



With women’s emancipation the ideal that sex was her wifely duty was tossed. She was given her orgasm and expected to enjoy sex with her sexual encounter—even though her burden was doubled with work and home life. It’s a sad… Continue
