What if there was a way that you could have more and better sex--and all it would take is a few minutes a day?
Plus, you'd also e...
I learned about shame, and how it silences our true selves. And more importantly, that we all have it -- so many people share the same fetishes, need the same conditions to feel safe, to get excited, to achieve pleasure, to feel their fantasies are fulfilled.
I understand that we do not fear HIV like we used to; however, this does not mean we should outright dismiss other STIs because they are easily treatable.
Why do so many of us not trust love and intimacy? Why do we fear death so much? Why do so many willingly hook up and have sex with people that they will never see again, but find it terrifying and dangerous to love and be truly intimate with another person?
We have all seen those studies where they say that men think about sex every seven seconds. I don't know if those studies are true but most men I have asked agree that they think about sex A LOT! Yes, many women think about sex a lot too, but many women think about food even more.
The longer I was in the field of sex addiction treatment the more I found both the label and many of the interventions antiquated, limiting and sometimes even harmful--especially when working with gay and bisexual men.
Most women are skeptical at the mere mention of sex during their final months, and especially weeks, of pregnancy. However, if treated with love, understanding, and attention to a few key pieces of advice, it can be a beautiful and mutually satisfying experience for both partners.
A recently published article on Towleroad brought forth a slew of concern regarding the drastic increase in STI infections in the United States. The a...
In light of World AIDS Day, I have seen several articles posted regarding the criminalization of HIV and the comments posted on pieces of this nature fall nothing short of ignorant and incredibly stigmatizing.
Children need more access to video games, books and plays designed to help them understand sexuality, media that incorporates sex as a normal, positive activity to counter the popular narrative among children that sex is "bad" and "gross."
Too few people within the black community and other disproportionately-affected groups have access to or even know about the options that are available, such as pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) to prevent infection or antiretroviral therapy (ART) to treat it.
Lots of good things happen during the teen years. Adolescents no longer believe that that they will get a nasty case of cooties from the opposite sex, right? And, most teens feel comfortable talking to their opposite sex peers;right? Nope. Not always. Often they feel awkward, shy and just plain clumsy.
The gaping gap in French aesthetic intelligence--parallel perhaps to the obvious recent gap in anti-terror intelligence--has at last been corrected, but not in Paris, the self-perceived global capital of fine arts.
At work, we show up 100 percent, are on time, are responsible, are proactive and intentional. Then, when we get home, we bring what Perel calls, "the leftovers". We're exhausted, we're on autopilot and even flat out lazy. No wonder desire and intimacy is dwindling with this way of showing up.
There's nothing more sensual than a deep, passionate kiss -- one that unhinges your knees and takes your breath away. It can easily be more intimate than sex. A bad kiss, however, can have the opposite effect, leaving you with a queasy feeling in the pit of your stomach.
