Dear Wendy: “Skype Sex With My Long-Distance Boyfriend Is Awkward”

When I moved out of the country four months ago to take a pretty sweet job abroad, my boyfriend and I decided to do the long-distance thing, and so far everything is great. We haven’t really had any issues other than lack of sleep due to staying up all night on Skype because of the time difference. Recently, we started having some frisky Skype sex sessions. After a couple frustrating attempts on my part, I have secretly started opening up windows and watching porn on silent to help me out. While this works like a charm, a part of me feels guilty, especially since I can see the action side-by-side with my boyfriend and he has no idea. It’s not that I’m not attracted to him … he’s so hot and he definitely turns me on, but I think it’s just nerves and anxiety about having video sex, so I need the extra help. My question is, do I have any reason to be feeling guilty? Is this any different than people picturing themselves with other people while having real sex? Is this something I can mention to my boyfriend, or would it be a complete blow to his ego? We are so open about everything else, I’d hate to keep this from him. — Feeling Like I’m in a Virtual Threesome

Dater X: Ghosts Of Thanksgiving Beaus Past

Last year, the night before Thanksgiving, I had a glorious third date with The Architect. Partly because of our easy rapport and partly because so many people leave New York City for the holidays, everywhere we went, it felt like we were the only two people that existed. At the movie theater, rather than fighting people for seats and sitting elbow-to-elbow with strangers, we got the two seats smack-dab in the middle of the theater with no one in a six-foot radius. I remember that he put his arm around me midway through the movie and pulled me close. Later at dinner, rather than the usual 30-minute wait at my favorite restaurant, we were seated instantly at a booth. I remember us making fun of the bizarre turkey centerpiece on the table. Later that night, I remember our first kiss. I described it in my column then as “one of the slowest, softest, hottest kisses of my life.” I stand by that a year later. Keep reading »

7 Things Women Wish Men Knew

Dane Cook is one of those people I don’t like. I don’t “get” him would be a nice way of putting it. I don’t find him attractive, funny, or interesting. My best friend once forced me to watch a movie with him in it, and it was so godawful that I’ve blocked out the majority of it. If I was going to take dating advice from someone, or advice about men, or advice about anything, for that matter, it wouldn’t be from this guy. Still, Cosmo asked Cook if he would share “7 Things Men Wish Women Knew.” After the jump, let’s explore seven things women wish men knew. Keep reading »

Ladies, Beware The Text-lationship!

About a month ago I was waiting in line at the grocery store when I spotted a hot guy standing behind me. I made a joke about how slow the line was going. He laughed. I smiled. And off we were. After we had both checked out, he continued to walk with me to the subway. He even offered to carry my bags. When we got to my destination, I shook his hand. “I’m glad we got stuck in line together.” Keep reading »
