Every day I counsel men and women who are concerned about improving their sex lives. The sad truth is that most of us are very poorly educated about sexuality despite the plethora of media attention on it.
One of the questions men (and women) often ask about is penis size. Most males, at some time in their lives, worry about whether they are “big enough.” Many women wonder whether bigger is better.
My friend Dr. David Buss and his colleague Dr. Cindy Meston wrote a wonderful book calledWhy Women Have Sex
. In it, they discuss penis size and sexual satisfaction. Their results may surprise you. Read more…
After the news broke that MMA Fighter Ray Elbe’s penis broke (I missed that news seeing as how I’d never heard of Ray before), he felt called to make a video about the incident. He says he wanted to come forward to talk about his traumatic penile fracture so that people could understand the “significance of the emergency” of having a broken dick. (Oh, I think we understand. Even those of us who don’t have them.YIKES.)
After Googling it, Ray discovered that lots of other men break their penis bones and some are too embarrassed to seek help. He doesn’t want anyone to be alone in this nightmare. Now that I know who he is and all the gory, bloody details of his sex injury and have seen him pour his pee from a catheter into a pitcher, I feel much more informed about penis injuries. In Ray’s words, “Keeping it safe during sex isn’t just about wearing a condom.” Noted, Ray. I will take great care next time I “come out the top and down” on a penis. His words, not mine. [Dlisted]
It’s official. The phenomenon which is “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” has infiltrated every last crevice of our psyche. Including our sex lives.

“I celebrate nudity every day,” actress Paz de la Huerta tells Playboy in their new issue, in which she makes sweet love to camera in various naturalistic settings. “We did the photos with no makeup, and we both wanted them to have a very natural feeling,” she told the mag of the pictures shot by photographer Mario Sorrenti. “It was more about bringing out a part of myself that has not really been shown to the public, a more honest portrayal of where I am now in my life.”
Here’s some unsettling news: Chlamydia and gonorrhea, both which can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease and infertility in women, are on the rise and both are more prevalent in women than men. According to the the 2011 Sexually Transmitted Diseases Surveillance report released by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention yesterday, certain groups, including young people and gay and bisexual men are at the greatest risk.

A recent news expose on gym hookups is activating my germophobia like WHOA. Joel Potter, the owner of the Blue Moon Fitness centers in Omaha, Nebraska, discovered a Craigslist Casual Encounters ad, where a member was propositioning other members for oral sex in the saunas. “Looking to see if any members of Blue Moon on 108th and Q want to coordinate workout times… ideal for a straight, married guy to hit the gym and get what the wife/girlfriend hates to do,” the ad said.
