Apparently, I still have a few more years of "hotness," according to Esquire writer, Tom Junod. Because, you know, I was worried. Really really worried.

Junod says:

There used to be something tragic about even the most beautiful forty-two-year-old woman.

In 2001, I appeared on The Montel Williams Show. It was my first television gig and while I am not sure how smooth I was on camera, I loved it. Now, 13 years later, after over a decade of being a television talking head, this week I will be appearing...

Braving the Sex Talk(s)

(3) Comments | Posted March 17, 2014 | 6:25 PM

I am not the average parent. I talk about sex (to children and teens) for a living. I teach parents how to broach these subjects with their children. My own offspring have known about love and sex and babymaking (even reproductive technology) for years. They are 9 and 5, respectively....

What I Learned About Myself When I Ran Into My Ex After 18 Years

(8) Comments | Posted September 30, 2013 | 7:40 PM

Last week, I ran into my high school boyfriend (and his two small children) on the street. Big deal, you're probably thinking. Well, yeah, sure, it has been 18 years since we were a couple. And 18 years since last saw each other. And yes, I definitely cannot complain about...

(49) Comments | Posted July 15, 2013 | 1:49 PM

"Sex on Campus: She Can Play That Game," this past Sunday's New York Times cover story, spent time atop their "most emailed" list and was discussed with fervor among my fellow Penn alums.

Anne Frank, Puberty and... Pornography?

(4) Comments | Posted May 13, 2013 | 6:48 PM

There are days when I become so enraged by the ignorance of others that I cannot focus on anything else. This was one of those days. I almost didn't believe it when it zipped across my Twitter feed. I saw the words: Anne Frank pornography. (Did you catch that? The...

5 Ways Stress Can Affect Your Sex Life

(88) Comments | Posted January 15, 2013 | 10:54 AM

Stress. I'm slightly on edge just writing the word. It brings up thoughts of all of the things I have yet to accomplish. Of all the resolutions I have (thought about) but not yet followed through with (and it hasn't even been two weeks). After years of managing work, marriage,...

5 Reasons Every Woman Should Consider Sex For One

(527) Comments | Posted November 29, 2012 | 5:09 PM

Prince was the first person to "teach" me about masturbation. Well, sort of. The first time I had heard the term was in his song, "Darling Nikki." He sings: "I met a girl named Nikki, I guess you could say she was a sex fiend. I met her in a...

Banning the Word 'Penis?' Parenting Fail

(23) Comments | Posted September 28, 2012 | 11:02 AM

Every now and then I get so completely aggravated by a "news" item that I feel compelled to write about it immediately. And that's what happened when I read Lisa Belkin's piece about a mother trying to shield her son from the word "penis." That's okay. Read that...

Sex: 5 Things You May Be Missing Out on in Bed

I try not to "prescribe" sexual activities; you are all entitled to make your own decisions when it comes to your sex life. I merely make suggestions, and this time, the suggestions are actually coming from you -- the readers. But this is not a mandate; consider it elective homework....

5 Ways to Have More Orgasms

(634) Comments | Posted June 14, 2012 | 3:46 PM

I've written about sexual pleasure before. Actually, I've written about pleasure quite a bit. But while the topic of female orgasm isn't exactly new, it is one that lots of people are still curious about. And it's hard not to be curious: Women's orgasms are the objects of scientific studies....

Breasts, Bras and a RHONJ Parenting Fail

(8) Comments | Posted May 22, 2012 | 6:33 PM

Clearly, I am the breast police. Breastfeeding. Breast screening. Breasts in general. Bras. Yep, I write (a lot) about breasts. I don't know what it is, but for some reason, our cultural messaging about breasts sucks. And I for one, am so tired of it.

5 1/2 Myths About Female Sexuality

I've been a sex educator since -- well, for a long time. And I am still crazed by the quantity of misinformation available to all of us at any given time. These myths are difficult to debunk; they have a long history and thousands of urban legends to back them...

Sex: 6 Reasons Why You May Not Be Enjoying It

When I decided to become a professional sexuality educator, I had one particular goal: I wanted women to speak honestly about sex in order to maximize their physical and emotional pleasure. Sure, that may seem like a tall order, but I'm an optimist. Why is this an important issue? There...
