Sex has overtaken many aspects of our culture. It is on the television, on the covers of many magazines, in almost every corner of the internet, and our children seem to be immersed in innuendo and direct sexual content. I would not call myself old-fashioned, but I feel that our culture’s attitudes and behaviors about sex are out of control, and we seem to be more and more desensitized the more we are exposed to this. I believe that human body is a work of art and should be appreciated. I am not in favor censorship -- I am in favor of good taste and mutually respectful behavior that models and emulates a respect for ourselves, each other and our bodies.
When we asked you what you did to get out of your sex rut, we received some wise advice that is definitely worth sharing! There's nothing better than tried and true sex advice from a reliable source -- you! Here's what you said...
As a woman ages, her attitude about sex may change too. How a woman feels physically as well as mentally can play a part in how aging affects her sex drive. Although aging often decreases a woman’s desire for sex, there are many things you can do to alter your libido and enhance your sexual experience.
Sexual addiction is defined obsession with sex that interferes with personal life, relationships or work. It can be described as an abnormally intense preoccupation with sex, and is often associated with risky behaviors and distorted thinking. If someone you know has signs of a sexual addiction, encourage the person to see a health care provider or join a support group to help overcome the addiction.
Having a child, it’s often remarked, is the ultimate gift. The follow-up should be (but never is) that it can come with a price. Often, when a couple has a child something gets lost between play dates and changing diapers. Free time becomes more about grabbing a couple of extra hours of sleep than making love.
How can you and your partner rekindle your romantic relationship after having a child?
According to research published in the October 2000 issue of the "Canadian Medical Association Journal," more than 100 million men worldwide experience some form of erectile dysfunction over the course of a lifetime. Although the symptoms are similar in different cases--difficulty achieving and maintaining an erection and decreased sexual desire--erectile dysfunction is caused by a wide variety of physiological, pharmaceutical and psychological factors.
Temporary impotence is a common problem. In fact, nearly every man has occasional problems attaining or maintaining an erection. Unfortunately, many women take a man's impotence personally. In reality, there are many reasons a man experiences temporary impotence and it more than likely has nothing to do with his feelings for you.
In a 2006 report released by the European Society for Sexual Medicine, it was reported that for men who suffer from premature ejaculation, the average time for ejaculation was 1.8 minutes. This was in contrast to the "normal" time--7.5 minutes--for most men. Worldwide, 2.5 percent of all adult males suffer from premature ejaculation. Premature ejaculation can create tension in a relationship as the man becomes embarrassed about his condition and his partner begins to wonder if she has done something to cause it. While premature ejaculation can create significant stress and concern in a man's life, several treatments and strategies are available to treat the condition.
Learning your lover's erogenous zones can heat things up in the bedroom. While some of those special spots are quite obvious, others may surprise you. Once you know the areas that make him tingle, you'll find it easier than ever to turn him on. Finding them is sure to be fun and will make an excellent addition to any romantic evening. He might even take a hint and try the same on you sometime soon.
Want to experiment and add a little spice to your love life (literally?) Create an aphrodisiac meal -- It's true, many foods can be stimulating though none will do the same thing a popular dysfunction drug will do. But that's no fun anyway...Aphrodisiacs unfortunately won't make you irresistible, but certain foods, smells and herbs do have a natural aphrodisiac effect to encourage sexual desire in both men and women.
