Did you ever think about what YOUR role is...what you could be doing to turn up the heat? We did, so we asked renowned sex expert and family therapist Dr. Jane Greer.

There was a lot of talk several years ago that a single woman over 40 years of age had a better chance of being blown up in a terrorist attack than finding a healthy marriage partner. Times have changed, and 40 year-old women no longer look 40 and terrorist attacks are more frequent. The saying has lost its “punch” and you seldom hear this phrase anymore. I have gone to more weddings where the bride and groom are both over 40 years of age, and/or one of them is over 40 and the other is 39 and holding.
Think I'm kidding? Hugh Hefner's 28-year-old runaway bride, Crystal Harris, recently announced the couple had sex only one time during their engagement and that it lasted only "like two seconds." Although Hefner, 85, says she's lying, these stats may lead you to actually side with the blond bombshell (despite her shady track record).
Religion might offer scores of personal benefits, but it looks like a great sex life isn't one of them. According to psychologist Darrel Ray from the University of Kansas, religious people suffer intense guilt during and after intercourse. Those devoted to their religion experienced regret after climaxing. Atheists and agnostics, on the other hand, boasted satisfying sex lives.
People are having sex later in life—many times well into their 80s. For many older couples the advent of drugs has helped to make sex even sexier way into senior adulthood. Drugs like Viagra, Cialis and Levitra increase the male capacity to have and maintain an erection and enable men to have intercourse even when the rest of their body doesn’t function quite as well. Viagra is now the most highly prescribed drug in America, creating a new enhanced ability to stay hard, which allows for an active sex like well into old age.
The French Dukan Diet is becoming increasingly popular. But we know what the French are really good at. Even though there are over 600 positions a couple can try in bed, the reality is that many of them require the agility, stamina and balance of professional athletes! The good news is that two classic sex positions culled from the French require no special skills or athletic talent. Try them and see if they improve l'amour!
For years, manufacturers have gamely attempted to make condoms more fun to use, but alas, even the most delectably flavored varieties don't compensate for that sterile, rubbery sensation. Now, a British biotech firm has taken on the challenge by developing the CSD500, a condom that prolongs a man's erection — hence its unofficial nickname, the "Viagra condom."
Are vaginal orgasms different from clitoral orgasms? The truth is, even professionals disagree on this topic. Some say they are two different experiences powered by different nerve pathways, others say all orgasms are clitoral orgasms because the clitoris is actually much larger than it appears to the naked eye, while others say who really cares, just enjoy your orgasms and stop worrying about it!
As if being obese didn't have enough pitfalls, findings published in the Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy suggest that the extra pounds can weigh down your sex life. A weight loss drug study involving 134 women and 91 men, who were all moderately to severely overweight, revealed that when probed about their sex life, obese people are more likely to report less sexual satisfaction than the general population.
Guys, would you rather lose your hair or lose your sexual prowess? Sounds like a pretty rotten deal, but a new study shows that men who take medication for hair loss risk losing something particularly valuable in return. The research, which was published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine this month, says that 5 to 23 percent of men who took the prescription drug finasteride (sold as Propecia) may suffer impotence, low libido, erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation and an inability to orgasm.
The thing with sex is that you can't always tell when it's just a rut or when you're sexually incompatible. I mean, at first glance they both look similar—lack of sex, frustration, etc.—but there are a few differences. So before you make any rash decisions, ask yourself: is the sex just getting boring (but fixable!) or are you and your partner sexually incompatible?
Is your sex life steamy, or could you stand to turn it up? A lot of couples fall into the latter category. It's easy to get in a rut in the bedroom.
