My husband, David, and I have been married 37 years. What's the secret to the longevity of our relationship? I'm no expert, but I know I have never stopped dating David! We are still in love and enjoy being with each other.
Last Sunday morning I laid in bed sipping hot coffee and gazing out my sun-streaked bedroom window. As I made my way to the bottom of my coffee mug, I thought about what makes some sexual experiences sexier than others. Sometimes it's the level of emotional intimacy. Sometimes it's the degree of novelty and risk. And sometimes it's just an exquisite blend of pheromones.
I wish that I reclaimed my own self-worth and validation -- that I knew how loving, kind, smart, sexy, beautiful, etc. I am simply for being me. And that goes for all of you too! You are perfect exactly as you are, without needing anything or anyone else to validate that for you.
I'm supposed to defend the field and say, "Vanilla is bad -- let me show you all these magical ways to bring the sexy back and blow their mind!" And as a sex writer, that's my bread and butter. But sometimes, most times, I think vanilla is still pretty freaking amazing
A few weeks ago I sat in a poolside cabana at The Avalon, a mid-century jewel of a hotel in Beverly Hills, eating dinner with a man who told me: 'To you, sex is art.' I was both flattered and amused. Amused because we hadn't even slept together -- he was referring to my blog.
If you find yourself in a similar situation, where your man is perfect but the sex life is lacking, take a look at this advice before you waste too many years on sex that doesn't make your toes curl.
I am not going to say that watching a man vacuum is traditionally sexy, but here's what's less sexy: me doing it all the time. Helping with housework frees your wife up to get relaxed and in a sexy mood.
Sometimes, you've just got to jump in, commit to getting naked with your partner and just have sex.
Next time you sleep with someone new, think about asking them to discuss their sexual history -- when they were last tested, what STDs they have had or still have, if they always use condoms, etc.
Now fans can see Durrett as a leading man in Christopher Nolen's 72 Hours playing for a limited engagement at the Studio Movie Grill in Chatham on Thursday, November 6 and Friday, November 7.
One of the many advantages of getting older is that we know what we like and don't like. And now we laugh when remembering those ten minutes of frantic fumbling in the back seat of a teenager's car after the high school game. At our age, we prefer Egyptian cotton sheets, soft jazz, and the luxury of foreplay. We're not only older but a lot wiser.
I started by telling you about my own experience in the world of abuse. I did this because those experiences are what helped me understand the importance of healing in light of a frightening situation. These women -- our sisters -- need our support and understanding to heal. But we cannot forget the men. At some point we are going to have to turn around and help heal this man. Many will think he is undeserving, but he too experienced trauma in his life which he has had to cope with. I'm not talking about forgiveness, I'm talking about compassion.
I have allowed my daughter to go on dates with him as long as she checks in with me so I know their whereabouts and that she gets home by curfew. I've asked my daughter what she means when she says she is in love and she just says that she really really is crazy about this boy
In the beginning stages of a relationship, it's sometimes easy to be so hot-and-heavy that having sex on the regular is akin to breathing: It's necessary for survival. Then life sets in and sex can be the last thing on your mind.
In order to genuinely win the hearts and minds of the ordinary citizens, the Somali leadership must not hasten making decisions on their behalf or self-interest by signing any treaty at a disadvantaged position with countries that have more negative record than positive.
If you want to stay in a real person's home, you have to realize, it is a real person's home. That person, if she is a woman, may have a vibrator. Or a wolf hanging in the closet.
