Do You Have Doctor Fantasies?

When it comes to sex, we here at The Frisky believe that if it works for you, who are we to judge? Maybe you’ve got a thing for truckers. Perhaps you are abstinent. Whatever your sexual proclivity is, more power to you. That’s why when we came across this layout from Cosmo starring James Van Der Beek as a doctor feeling up a model patient on the table, we thought, Hey, why not? (Actually, we blocked out that it was Van Der Beek, seeing as he doesn’t exactly float our boat, a task that was made easier by virtue of the fact that he was thoroughly facially Photoshopped.) The ladies at The Cut didn’t like the pictorial so much, though. They deemed it “awkward” and opined “the idea of a doctor just taking his patient from the operating table doesn’t appeal to us, nor does the ending of this spread, in which the Beek and his love interest get wild in the room containing all the medical records.” Hospitals, they concluded, should be “sex-free.” True! But aren’t fashion editorials pure fantasy, and isn’t this simply an exploration of a fantasy that some of us have surely had, of being seduced by a doctor? We don’t think it’s too bad, so long as you don’t take it literally. What do you think? [The Cut] Keep reading »

I Signed A Sex Contract With My Husband

After the birth of our first child, my libido plummeted. Things went from bad to worse in my relationship, and my husband was accusing me of abandoning him. So I made a sex agreement: Twice a week, I’d do it, whether I felt like it or not. Read more Keep reading »

But despite their less showy nature, those two hairy globes still hold great potential for pleasure … and pain. Watch Asylum’s token girl explain the woman’s perspective on your family jewels, and find out what they have to do with ’80s cartoons. Read more Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “I Can’t Climax On My Meds”

I’m a 25-year-old single woman with diagnosed clinical depression. I received this diagnosis about five years ago and have been on the same medication off and on since. It has many side effects, but one of the most frustrating is that it kills my ability to orgasm. I still have a healthy libido and enjoy sex, but the big finish just doesn’t happen. Obviously that’s a medical issue, not a relationship issue, but my question is: how do I handle this when I’m with a new guy? For most of the last five years I was in a long relationship, so he knew about it when I did. But now I’m interested in someone new and don’t know what to do. Should I fake it? I don’t want to mislead anyone but I worry that if I disclose the situation he won’t be interested in me. Maybe he’ll think, “What’s the fun in getting off with someone who can’t get off at all?” Also, I don’t necessarily want to discuss my illness with someone I’m only seeing casually. FYI: I’ve considered switching meds, but I don’t want to change something that works very well for me, and the medication I’m on actually has the lowest instance of sexual side effects of any on the market; I’m just part of the very unlucky 0 percent of the population. — No O

Pink Balls: The New Term For Women Experiencing Sexual Frustration

If women had to count the amount of times a guy has complained about getting blue balls, we’d run out of fingers and toes to count with. Men always use the blue ball excuse to try to make us feel bad about their sexual frustration and discomfort and to convince us to use our magical ways to fix it. Well, ladies, medical science has proven that women get a similar painful feeling when we don’t get to finish properly either. There is nothing worse then being close to climaxing and losing it; just because we don’t physically ejaculate (well, much) doesn’t mean we don’t get pink balls. Keep reading »
