Society and the media's insistence that sex sells (and looks like it was Photoshopped) can be detrimental to your children. Show them what it means to respect yourself and your sexuality through this sex educator's insight and tips.
What does a new form of 'female Viagra' have in common with the book "Fifty Shades of Grey"? Both may be able to prime your brain for toe-curling sex. That's according to Daniel Bergner, whose new book, "What Do Women Want?" explores the current research about female sexuality and turns long-held notions about women's sex drive inside out.
Months have passed since Rush Limbaugh apologized for the scathing insults he spewed about a female student who spoke out before congress on the importance of birth control to young women. Yet, echoes of the terms Limbaugh used, “slut,” “prostitute” and “feminazi,” should still be ringing in our ears. Moreover, they should force us to look beyond extremist political personalities and examine how society itself views a woman’s sexuality and what effect this is having on women.
“As I grew into my adolescence, I began to associate sex with sin; I imagine this had to do with being surrounded in a conservative religion in my home, church and school. My attitude about sex and sexuality was that it was something that only married or sinful people engaged in. Other than that I did not have much information – and because I was shy – the only place I got information about sex and sexuality was from TV, magazines and books”.
Now that Joanna Coles has taken over at "Cosmopolitan" magazine, there's something I'd like her to know. Joanna, your magazine is polluting the minds of women everywhere.
Then before you know it you have gained weight? That once great interest in looking good to attract the opposite sex has now vanished. Staying healthy and attractive for your partner should be a priority in any relationship. In an article that I wrote for Squidoo “Reasons why a husband does not want to have sex with his wife”, the top reason was loss of attraction. Men are more visual then women when it comes to sex, they see the female body as a turn on.
Many women think they have sexual dysfunction when actually there is nothing wrong with them. They may have high expectations of how a woman should be during sex, which may have come from highly unrealistic literature or from the erroneous theory of vaginal versus clitoral orgasm (for more on this see Sarita's article on Great Sex for Women).
If you want to be a passionate and sexy lover, be passionate and sexy in life! Live your life with wild abandon, go for what makes you happy and bring this quality to the bedroom. Learn to pleasure yourself and know what you want. Knowing your own body, knowing the time you need, the style you like, and what ecstasy you are capable of, will make you an empress of love.

Sexual stereotypes are everywhere. We see them in commercials, where happy moms dance around their homes in celebration of a functional mop. We see them in movies, where stoic male heroes are still rescuing clueless heroines. We see them on sitcoms, where single women dream of getting their boyfriends to settle down, and lazy husbands just want to watch sports.
Forget apples. An orgasm a day keeps the doctor away. People who have regular, satisfying sex live longer, stay in shape, and are generally happier. But during the Victorian era, from 1897 to 1901, sex was strictly viewed as a procreational activity between a woman and her husband. Or, an act between a man and whoever he wanted to have sex with.
One Dr. Adam Ostrzenski appears to have made the gynecological discovery of the year. He's found the elusive G spot: It was hiding in the cadaver of an 83-year-old Polish woman. Some people are a little skeptical of the doctor's orgasmic find, but we'll say good job nonetheless.
I've been hearing about this elusive G spot in a woman's vagina long before I had even experienced penetration myself. I've had straight female friends who swear the only way they can orgasm is if their G spot is stimulated by a penis; lesbian friends who have been more than willing not to only show me where it is, but how with ample pressure it can induce the even more elusive "female ejaculation"; and of course, sexual partners who've claimed they can "totally feel your G spot now from this angle, baby."
I’m 32 and I don’t know if I have ever fully recovered from seventh grade. When I graduated my beloved elementary school and went to a much bigger middle school across town, some of my old classmates also switched to the same middle school, one of whom was my sixth grade ex-boyfriend. We had a messy “separation” after I came back from summer camp and realized that he was no longer interested in knowing me anymore, no less holding my hand at the park and buying me beanie babies.
By now you know the story: Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke spoke out in favor of insured birth control, and Rush Limbaugh lashed out at her by calling her a slut and saying the government shouldn't subsidize her lifestyle.
What do we do when we meet up with someone whose values are so opposed to our own? What about being curious as to why and how they made their decisions versus being judgmental? What about pondering their philosophy to come to a deeper understanding of another person's point of view, before condemning? Lastly, can we maintain civility and be polite regardless if we vehemently disagree?
