Does Being A Sex Writer Make You Better At Talking About Sex?

My naughty drawer is not what it once was. At the moment, it contains: a bullet vibrator; two smoothie vibrators; a baggie filled with review samples of 20 or so different types of personal lubricants; a bottle of my favorite scented massage oil; a vanilla sugar-scented massage candle; an I Rub My Duckie; a sleep mask I typically use only when I’m having trouble falling asleep; leather handcuffs; one gorgeous bit of lingerie; a bottle of BabeLube; the fertility-friendly lube I purchased for babymaking sex; and a ton of batteries. I keep a wide-tipped riding crop behind the bed, and a healthy collection of sexy how-tos on a shelf. Keep reading »

What You Should Know Before You Get Married

Choosing to marry someone is one of the biggest decisions you’ll ever make, which is why we’ve previously let you in on the 9 secrets a healthy couple shouldn’t keep from each other if they plan to commit themselves to a lifelong relationship. These are the things you should share with each other in order to determine compatibility … things like faith, attitudes about money and the desire (or non-desire) to have kids. But what happens after you say “I do”? Do you have any clue what you’re in for? Keep reading »

I Told A Guy His Penis Was Too Small

I told him he had a tiny penis.

Well, if you want to be precise, I actually told him that his junk probably couldn’t hit my sexual “spot”—which isn’t much better, I suppose. Keep reading »

How To Handle Your Relationship When Mercury Goes Retrograde

Something weird is in the air. Have you noticed it? Nothing seems to be going right. Important e-mails have been bounced. Your laptop or cell phone has gone kaput. Your love life seems to have taken a turn for the worst. You may have even been dumped. That thing you’ve been avoiding? Well, it’s come back to haunt you, hasn’t it?

Blame it on Mercury in retrograde. It began August 20 and will continue its terrible reign until September 12th. Keep reading »

How Drinking Saved Our Marriage

I don’t get out much.

You can tell from the way these sexy legs of mine perfectly match the white background on your computer screen.

Even worse, I don’t get out of the bedroom much. Instead, I sit cross-legged on my bed for hours on end—my laptop perched on a tray in front of me—editing content, typing up posts, reading other people’s posts, drawing up marketing plans, and connecting with other young entrepreneurs on Twitter.

I don’t do morning walks. I don’t do evenings at the bar. Sometimes, I don’t even do lunch. Keep reading »

I Was Engaged To A Man With Commitment Phobia

When I met the cute blue-eyed surfer who lived in my apartment building—we’ll call him Max—we clicked immediately. I’m a workaholic by nature, but I set aside my writing while he and I stayed up until dawn in fits of side-splitting giggles, thumbing through photo albums, playing music and talking—about everything. Politics, religion, sex—nothing was off limits. He even told me about his ex-girlfriend. She was eight years his senior and ready for marriage and a family. At 25, he wasn’t.

Is Your Marriage Different Than Your Mother’s?

I was always pretty resistant to marriage, but—because I looked up to my mother so much, because we were so close, and because I felt that she presented to me such a healthy version of both motherhood and long-term love—I ached for a traditional family. Now I’m almost 30, I recently celebrated my three-year wedding anniversary, and my husband and I are trying to have children.

This worries me. Keep reading »

What To Do When He Can’t Get It Up

It happens to the best of men: arousal but no lift … interest but no erection. When a man can’t get it up, the experience for him and his partner falls somewhere between awkward and utterly mortifying—I’ve even heard of men not calling women back because they were so ashamed of their inability to keep things on the up and up.

10 Simple Things Men Want In A Relationship

It’s tempting to assume men only want two things: steak and sex.

Entire days are devoted to perpetuating these kinds of cliches, yet they are humorous for men because we’re amused that women assume this false notion is all we want. We’re quite complicated creatures, and although probably not as baffling as any space alien from a Candace Bushnell column, men have secret wish lists of emotional needs that you may or may not be meeting.
