Now There are Demisexuals Too

In a world that loves putting people in boxes, the newest definition on the sexual spectrum is Demisexual. For those who do not update their sexual jargon regularly, this refers to a breakaway from the asexuals. This group consists of people who experience feeling no sexual attraction to other people, until such time as a profound emotional or romantic relationship develops between them. This differs from... read more

Swinging: The Sexual Way of Having Your Cake and Eating It

No, this isn’t childs’ play but it has been known to bring on a few giggles and quite a lot of fun. Swinging is the practice of enjoying sexuality as a couple, with other couples. It is certainly outside of the box for most stable couples, some will even call it morally depraved, but it is not a loose and fancy-free occurrence. Swinging is actually a lifestyle with a definite order and set of... read more

Internet Dating in Mid-Age

While the internet has extended sexual accessibility for people of all ages and all physical and mental states, it is even more central a tool for recently separated older individuals who find that they do not have other easy routes to meeting new people. Whether newly single or chronically unattached, internet meetings bring with them all the risks of sexual partnering with relative strangers but no... read more

Faking Orgasm

The birds don’t do it. The bees don’t do it. So why do educated people do it? People fake orgasm because we think too much. We think about our partner working so hard and want to give him or her some gratification. Or we start thinking how the sex is going, get bored and want it to end because we are not getting closer to a real orgasm anyway. Or we think about wanting to be a better lover, more orgasmic,... read more

Falling Asleep (Too Soon!) After Sex?

Passing out immediately after sex (so they tell me) is one of life’s great pleasures, when you’re the one doing the slumbering. For the slumberee, having no company for your post-sex lull, with the possible exception of some snores, can be very far from a great pleasure. In fact, sometimes it’s enough to annul a good deal of the enjoyment. There are a few reasons why falling asleep straight after sex is... read more

Tantric Dating: Tantra for Singles

Images of tantra usually show couples embraced or even intertwined in sex. Yet tantra – in its mission to bring about physical and spiritual connection, is not the exclusive realm of couples. The principles of tantra, which are traditionally expounded by lovers working together and developing various elements of their relationship, are just as pertinent to singles in their relationship with themselves,... read more

How Much Sex is Normal?

As the old joke goes, two people were asked how much sex they tend to have. One answered “we hardly ever have sex, only twice a week”. The other answered “we’re always having sex – as often as twice a week”. If the truth be told, the original joke tells that one is a man and the other a woman, but let`s not stir the already muddy water. When researchers try to find out how... read more

Finding Sexual Intimacy

“Intimacy is a four syllable word for ‘Here’s my heart and soul, please grind them into hamburger, and enjoy’” proclaimed Grey’s Anatomy’s Meredith. Romance novel writer, Barbara Cartland said, “Among men, sex sometimes results in intimacy; among women, intimacy sometimes results in sex”. The movie Closer professed, “Intimacy is a lie we tell ourselves”. Intimacy has been given ruthlessly bad press,... read more

Abstinence

Abstinence means refraining from intercourse. It could also be interpreted as including other sexual behaviours that put people at any level of risk of sexually transmitted infection (STI) or pregnancy, including oral sex, anal sex and non-penetrative sex. An even stricter level of abstinence, called Celibacy, urges masturbation to be left off the menu too. Few people will argue with the statement that... read more
