He, meanwhile, was more of a traditionalist, with no interest in an open relationship. Many of my past relationships had fallen apart for this very reason. This one was no different.
Still,… READ MORE »
My first concern when preparing for my appointment was: What I should wear? Sure, I was going to be stripping down to nothing, but maybe I could strip down to nearly-nothing instead?

I’ve been with my boyfriend for three and a half years, and we moved in together a year ago (after spending most of our relationship doing long-distance varying from living across the country from each other to living a couple hours apart).

My boyfriend of over a year has lost almost all of his sex drive. I’ve tried the typical methods (lingerie, porn, alcohol, sexy messages/talk, etc.) to get him interested in sex and have had less than a 20 percent success rate (which results in a 35 percent erection, at best). He insists that there’s no… READ MORE »

I wasn’t… READ MORE »
