Recently in Relationships

Talk to MeAs a sex educator often I spend more time talking about communication than about vibrators, condoms, and anatomical function put together. From what I have experienced, it seems that the biggest indicator of whether or not you will achieve your sexual and emotional desires is largely dependent on how good of a communicator you are. Take a look at the various sources relationship advice. It may be phrased differently but I guarantee you that the majority of advice out there boils down to three things: communication, talking more, and communication. So there it is, your magic bullet. That said, if it is that easy why are people still hesitant to be open and honest with each other about what they want and need?

date_night.jpgThe honeymoon is long over and all of that the passionate lovemaking that used to be common place in your marriage has resulted in a few noisy rug rats that won't give you even ten minutes of peace for a quickie. The career is a boner killer and the yard needs to be mowed yet again. The longer this goes on, the more worn down you feel. The seven year itch has festered and scabbed over to the point where passion is just another unfulfilled emotional need that has become little more than a faded memory. Many of the couples in this rut are either biding their time and promising that someday they'll get time for each other. Others are getting their needs met on the side.

introducing-toys2.jpgThe very title of this article made me laugh as I wrote it. When I say, "Introducing Sex Toys to your Relationship," I really mean, introducing them to your partner. After all, if you are cool with the toys already, it isn't you that needs the introduction. I cannot help but conjure pictures of my readers and listeners having an uncomfortable lunch with their favorite silicon dildo and their new boyfriend.
