Expert Q & A Answers About Love + Relationships
Ever since I had a complete hysterectomy (including ovaries), I’ve had trouble with vaginal dryness and loss of sexual pleasure or sensation. What can I do about my vaginal dryness?
My wife and I are both healthy 47-year-olds who have been married for more than 20 years. Basically my wife dislikes deep penetration because she feels like it "bumps her internal organs." Is there any way we can get both deep penetration for me and comfort for her? Is there such a thing as a vagina that is "too short"?
I’m not that turned on by my husband of 17 years...but, for as long as I can remember, I’ve had fantasies about women. In my teens, I had a few experiences with girls, but not since then. I feel guilty that I don’t desire my husband and I’m confused. Am I a lesbian? I don’t know what to do.
I turned 15 last week, and I’ve always been attracted to girls. But lately, I’m thinking more about men, and I’m not so attracted to women anymore. What’s going on? Am I gay?
I'm a homosexual man and I've been in a very successful relationship for two years. I sometimes ejaculate inside my partner during anal sex. I would like to know if that’s okay, or if there are any negative side effects? We’re in great health and live a healthy lifestyle.
I was wondering what kind of sexual diseases women can give to each other?
I am a 35-year-old woman in a very fulfilling and loving relationship. I have bipolar disorder and take several medications daily. But these drugs have erased any sexual desire, decreased the feeling of sexual stimulation and made achieving an orgasm a task rather than a pleasure. I don’t think decreasing my dosage is a good idea, but how do I get around this lousy side effect? I don’t want a sexless life!
My husband and I are newly married and he was recently sent to the Middle East with a deployment by the armed forces. How can we keep the home fires burning, sexually, while he's away?
I'm an 18-year-old girl and I find that I have heavier vaginal discharge every time I'm around my friend. We do kiss, but I seem to get excited just being around her. We could just be sitting there doing nothing, and I feel like I’m excreting vaginal fluid. I'm really embarrassed because I've never been in a relationship before. Is this normal? Or do I some kind of disorder or disease?
I’m trying to understood my husband’s need for pornography. I never reject his advances and I often initiate sex, and sometimes we watch porn together to enhance our sex life. But, although he tries to hide it, he appears to "need" to watch porn and masturbate on his own, and he always needs to fantasize about others joining us in order to climax during our sexual encounters. I want him to want me alone and to love me during our encounters. Why is he incapable of joining love and sex and understanding my need for it? I know he loves me and we’ve been together for more than 15 years.
