Hi, I’m Dr. V. I’m not a real doctor, I just play one on the Internet. What I am is a lady, a lady who is a fool for love! And I love nothing more than sex. My deepest desires have happily led me on many adventures in the sack, but they have also, sadly, made me one of my gyno’s most valuable players. But I’ve lived to tell the tale(s)! So, from time to time, I will dish the dirt on everything from getting freaky to getting freaked out. Now, let’s get this party started…

So, I’ve got some tips for her on how to get him to cross the finish line — and in record time! As for the rest of you, keep those letters coming. You know I just love to read your smut too!

India: The Fusion
When I think of fusion, either nuclear or pan-Asian flare comes to mind. But this is a dish best served hot. He leans back, you sit on top, facing him, and lean back too. Make sure you bend your knees and pump away with a full view of all the crotch action!

Anal sex is on the rise amongst teenagers. Not so coincidentally, so are STDs, specifically HIV/AIDS, among 13-29 year-olds. According to ABC News, teens just don’t find sex and its kinks as taboo as previous generations — which we suppose is sort of good news. It’s important for teenagers to have a healthy relationship with their sexuality and to not feel shame about their urges. But the bad news is, with a lack of sexual education, they’re being stupid about how they do it. Since teens aren’t worried about pregnancy when they’re going through the back door, they often don’t use condoms. There are life-changing risks involved, especially with anal sex, where the walls of the rectum tear easily — just ask our own Dr. V. So, as we tackle sexual taboos as a society, we have to be responsible enough to teach the next generation what we know. Keep reading »
Not long ago, I met a guy that reminded me of that sexy NPR storyteller Ira Glass. Instantly, I fell in nerd-love with this doppelganger. After dating for a while, though, we realized we had only one thing in common: sex. So we decided to be friends with benefits. According to a Michigan State University study, sixty-percent of college co-eds have been involved in an FWB relationship, and plenty of my thirty-something girlfriends were doing it to stay satisfied, so I figured I’d give the laid back, no-romantic-attachments approach to getting laid a whirl. A year later, faux-Ira and I still hang out and hump. After our most recent rendezvous last weekend, I began to wonder what I’m doing. What are the real benefits to friends with benefits? Sure, now I have an in-case-of-sexual-emergency-hit-Glass-lookalike. At the same time, I’ve started to realize my situation is causing me to question the meaning of friendship, challenging my chances at romances, and wobbling my emotional stability. Keep reading »
“I can go all night long, baby!” While this common guy claim is rarely true, is this really what women want? According to a Penn State Study published last spring, ”Satisfactory sexual intercourse for couples lasts from three to 13 minutes.” Damn, that’s less time than it takes me eat a burrito! (Which, let’s face it, in some cases, can be more deliciously gratifying.) But sex, as we all know, is a quality over quantity thing. Going at it like bunnies until the break of dawn sounds fun, but with risk factors like chafing, early morning meetings, and general exhaustion, you can’t go on bumpin’ uglies forever — which explains why “women like sex to last, and last, and last” came in second in our poll of sexual misconceptions. So, what do you consider the perfect amount of time strictly for D-in-V-style penetration?

When it comes to erectile dysfunction, Finnish researchers have found that the “use it or loose it” principle holds true. Published in the July issue of The American Journal of Medicine, a study from the Department of Urology at Tampere University examined almost 1000 men between the ages of 55 and 75. They concluded that men who said they didn’t have sex once a week were twice as likely to develop penis problems. And if you boned three or more times a week, your chances of going limp in your golden years dropped to 1%. While the docs also discovered that the frequency of morning wood played an important part in predicting ED, nothing is more integral than intercourse. Science has proved there’s just no substitute for good ol’ fashioned fornication. [Mediline Plus] Keep reading »
Faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, and able to leap tall people in a single bound….no it’s not Superman. It’s super bacterium gonorrhea! The microscopic crotch grabber is the strongest organism on the planet and much like promiscuous lovers, it can pull more than its fair share of tail, or, in this case, pili. Forget about bending steel, these little bacteria buggers can drag 100,000 times their body weight which is basically like a human hauling 22 million pounds of crap (or Carrie Bradshaw’s shoe rack).
