As a woman in her ’30s, I thought I knew pretty much all there was to know about my body. If you had asked me, I would have sworn I was well-informed. And then I started going to a new gynecologist and she literally blew my mind when she told I’d been checking my breasts all wrong. What? How had I missed this? I knew about the circular check but not the up-and-down pattern. Well, maybe because the last time I learned about breast self-examination was from a pamphlet I got in high school. That was a while ago. After the jump, I asked other women about the most surprising things they learned from their gynos. Keep reading »
The downside to getting laid, if there has to be a downside, is dealing with the aftermath. Once the guy has gone home, it’s just you and your vagina left to process the whole thing. This can become particularly panic-inducing if something’s itchy down there or if your period is late or days have gone by and you haven’t heard word one from him. This is when the beauty of the act gets tainted by extreme post-sex anxiety. Don’t let yourself spiral into a full-blown freakout. Really, it’s not worth losing your marbles over what is most likely a yeast infection. You’re going to be fine! Seriously! Everything is going to be OK! These animals have comforting words and friendly advice to help you with any sex-related freak out you might currently be experiencing.
No one on earth is quite as pleased as a man who has just pleased a woman between the sheets. We love the care and attention you’ve paid to us for our own benefit, but we also love watching you bask in self-satisfaction. But as satisfied as you might be with yourself, sometimes we’re not quite as satisfied as you’d hoped: something relatively minor, but highly distracting, was a bit “off.”
Don’t be offended, darlings, but a few nips and tucks in your bedroom style might speed things along (in a good way)—leaving us more time for another go at it! Keep reading »

If you actually follow these dumb sex tips, then you deserve the confused stare or slap upside the head you’re going to get. These tips, found on the Internet, are 100 percent dumb.
The Internet is a great place to find directions, recipes, or funny photos of cats. It is not a suitable place to find serious medical diagnoses, thoughtful political opinions, or advice on how to spice up your love life. Seriously, one of the dumb sex tips we found involved placing a donut on a part of the body that doesn’t need to have a donut placed around it. Another sex tip suggests playing the unsexy game “Do you have prostate cancer”?
This list gives you one piece of totally responsible sex advice, and then 13 tips that are guarunteed to keep you from ever having to seek out sex tips again. Read more…
WikiHow is the new Cosmo when it comes to ridiculous sex tips. Some of the advice is sound if not totally obvious: “Improve your sex life by talking to your partner about sex.” Duh. And some of it is absolutely ridiculous: “To get your girlfriend to have sex with you, get in her bed with just your underwear on and snuggle with her until she gets turned on.” Actually, that might not work. Here are some more pieces of wikiHow sex advice you probably should NOT follow.
“Will I become addicted to my vibrator?” “Once I start using a vibrator, will I be able to climax without it?” “Will using a vibrator make me less sensitive?” These are just a few of the questions that have come up again and again over my ten years as the owner of a successful sex toy business.
These fears are more common than you might think. Many women believe they will not be able to enjoy sex without their favorite toys, and that if that’s true, it means they have an addiction that their partners will find disgusting. Many men fear being replaced by a toy. They feel sexually inadequate when they discover their female partners use toys to masturbate. Read more…

Just in case you’re not already terrified enough of STIs, this should help. I don’t need any help with that, but thanks anyway. I saw “Kids” in 1995. This is a moment when it would come in handy to have a detailed sex list. Calculate at your own risk. [Lloyd's Pharmacy]
My article Top 5 Mistakes Men Make in Bed received a lot of attention. Most of the comments (or complaints) came from men. Some men found the article helpful, others reacted defensively and some men were simply hostile and rude.
But the most common comment came in the form of “What about the women?” A lot of men felt picked on and asked that I give equal time to men’s complaints about women. Fair enough. So, I did an informal query among a handful of men to learn the top five mistakes women make in bed and the results are below. But, before I give you the list, I have a few disclaimers.
First, please note I am a woman and not a man. I therefore went to men for their input. This list represents the most common complaints made and does not represent every man’s experience nor is this list the result of a sound empirical research study. Second, as with my first article, the information is offered with the intent to stimulate communication between partners, not to create any shame, wrong-doing or blame. Our sexuality is complex. And just as any relationship requires on-going inquiry, communication, negotiation and attention, so does your intimate sexual relationship. Read more …
Have a pounding a headache? New research suggests skipping the painkillers and choosing a natural remedy: sex.
A study published in Cephalalgia, the journal of the International Headache Society, reveals more than half of migraine sufferers who had sex during an attack experienced an improvement in symptoms, and 20% were left without any pain at all.
Previous research has shown sex may be causing headaches, but neurologists say that because getting busy triggers the release of endorphins, which act on the central nervous system, intercourse is a natural way to reduce or abort headaches.
According to The Daily Mail, the hypothalamus region of the brain is active during a cluster headache, and the same area shows activity during orgasm.
So, what else can sex cure? Take a look at the list below and start treating your ailments.
. Need to relax?Look no further than the bedroom. In a Scottish study, men and women were placed in stressful situations and told to keep records of their sexual activity. People who had recorded having intercourse responded better to stress, reports Web MD. Read more…
