“What about the man’s sexual needs?” he said

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

Why is his vasectomy my responsibility?

As I limped ‘blue balled’ to read a book in bed, I said to my husband in frustration, “You know if you were fixed, we could be having sex right now.”

Equally as frustrated he replied, “What’s wrong with using a condom?”

“I’m ovulating today and I don’t want to take any chances. The condom could break.”

It all started a few minutes earlier when my husband nuzzled my neck and I got a warm tingly sensation. I’d been thinking about sex all that long, long day and as… Continue

Sex talk at a mom's book club

I was invited to a mom’s book club who were (bless them) reviewing my book, Till Sex Do Us Part: Make Your Married Sex Irresistible. It was a range of moms who had babies up to 20 year-old kids.

Inevitably the conversation went to girl’s sexuality—this after I got on my soap box and proclaimed a big reason why women have sexual hang-ups is because of us putting girls/ young ladies/ women’s… Continue

When does trolling for chicks become creepy?

I ran into an old friend from my single days. Nice guy. A pretty boy in his prime who had gals flocking to him in droves. He still looks good at 40.

My family was at the Farmer’s Market doing the weekly shop when I spotted him with two other single guys. I turned to my husband and said, “Do you think he’s trolling for women at the Farmer’s Market?”

In the banding together men do when it comes to all-things-trolling my husband stuck up for him, “There’s a lot of nice,… Continue

Frozen Muffin Moments and Sex

My husband took the homemade frozen muffins on the bright blue IKEA plate, placed them in the microwave, turned to me and asked, “How long should these be in the microwave?”

Innocent enough question. But I was up at 3:00 a.m. with a teething baby, could not fall back to sleep until 5:00’ish when my baby, once again, woke up. I was exhausted and coming up with an answer was too much effort.

I looked at him bleary eyed with a confused haven’t-had-my-first-cup-of-coffee… Continue

Young women are having's true!

The yearly survey of “how much sex are young women really having” came around mid-September.

Once again, it had nothing to do with male sexuality—can’t figure out for the life of me why it’s always gal’s sexuality that’s under scrutiny. Maybe because people keep that old tired, “men can have lots of sex and women can’t…because she’ll get pregnant and get labeled a ‘whore’” dogma subconsciously in their heads.

This time, thank goodness, no mention of how immoral and… Continue

Have Sex After

There was a pregnant pause over the phone line and then a confused, “Sex once a week…? That’s the challenge?” With a deep sigh, I had to admit that even to my own ears it sounded pretty lame.

How could I explain to my (childless) friend that taking a shower once a week was an exercise in time management gymnastics—and a much higher priority than sex?

“So, um, yes. Sex once a week. That’s the challenge,” I replied, desperate to not feel sexually inadequate.… Continue

Where Did the Sexual 'Chemistry' Go?

Question: I love my partner but don’t feel the ‘chemistry’ we once had. What can I do?

Dr. Trina's response

Here’s four ideas to get you started:

(1) Figure out what/ who the top five priorities are in your life. Is your partner one of them? Do your actions follow through on your words?

(2) Rate how easy or hard it is to communicate with difficult topics like sex, or what is bugging you. If it… Continue

Women, Orgasms and Genetics

Dr. Petra Boynton is a sex educator out of the U.K. In this blog she disputes the idea that an inability to orgasm is due solely to a woman’s genetics.

What I believe is important about her article is: pharmaceutical companies are campaigning hard—multimillions campaigns, paid experts and therapist backing this idea—to have this type of ‘dysfunction’ recognized as real. That way, when (or should I say… Continue
