How do you know a newbie couple? They're wrapped around each other like pretzels.
And it's one of the reasons newbie sex is fantastic; as the abundance of couple touch means they're already jacked-up and good to go when it comes to bedroom time. Continue

A lack of sexual desire--the thoughts you have around sex--is the number one reason couples in North America stop having sex. Continue

During an interview I was explaining how men could best please a woman.
I explained that men think—from their porno-sex-ed and general socialization— pleasing a woman means: (1) a big penis; (2) lasting a long time during intercourse; (3) making her orgasm.
These things are probably NOT what the average gal is looking for in the sexual experience. In fact, she’s probably craves something very different.
Instead she wants an emotional connection, intimacy and… Continue

Week #6 Six Month Sex Challenge
—Is good intention enough to help a flagging sex life?
Lesson that I learned last week:
Our sex life will never be the hot crazy sex it once was; and yet we now can create something deeper and richer to take us over time.
Does the New Year really bring with it a new sex life?
New Years is a time to make resolutions with intent in order to change or transform ourselves for the better. Intention. Such a little… Continue

Week #5 of the Six Month Sex Challenge
Lesson I learned last week:
When I stretch myself too thin, I get snappy with my husband and, of course, I don’t want to have sex with him.
Two and a half stories for this blog. Both seem unrelated to my current sex life and, yet, both are integral to what is presently happening.
Story #1 ½
It was our first Christmas together and I was opening the first Christmas present from my husband.… Continue

This is week #4 of my Six Month Sex Challenge.
This week it's all about getting through the Christmas season stress and not killing each other.
What I learned last week:
Oral sex is an easy way to add sex into the week.
Why Did I Think I Could Have Sex This Week?
Okay, I’ll admit it. I bit off way more than I could chew preparing for Christmas. Honestly, I thought baking 30 dozen cookies, shopping, mailing cards, potty training, working on… Continue

Week #3 of my Six Month Sex Challenge
This week I focus on my husband’s sexual needs
Lesson learned from last week:
Having my sexual needs met won’t always be greeted with the type of enthusiasm I would like.
Finding Intimacy in the Funniest of Places
The pain in my stomach became more pronounced Monday afternoon. By Monday night it was just plain bad. Tuesday morning the pain hadn’t gone away and I had to call my husband home from work… Continue

Lessoned learned from last week: I can no longer count on weekend naps to fit in sex. Crap!!! That completely bites the big burrito.
Part of my Six Month Sex Challenge
is to make one week about my sexual needs and the alternative week about what my husband would like. So to start, this week is all about me. Me, me, me, me.
For months now I’ve been fantasizing about a hot rock massage, I decided that what I wanted out of “sex” this week was a lovely… Continue

You’d think being married for eight years and me being a sex expert would make the whole reconnection after baby thing easier. Nope. The two month absence in sex wedged a tiny “how do I initiate” awkwardness between us.
So there I was figuring out how I was going to get the sex ball rolling in a fun and light hearted way. Admittedly I had a few romantic notions of a sweet and tender, uninterrupted reunion—where teeth were brushed, legs shaved and I was wearing something other than… Continue
