My Wife Prefers Her Sex Toys to Sex with Me

Sep 17, 2013 | Relationships |Women's Health |Sexual Health | Comments (0)

This podcast comes from sexual health expert Debby Herbenick, PhD, MPH

QUESTION: My wife discovered toys about 30 years ago, and our love life died. She says that I can't satisfy like her toys do. After she is done she just goes to sleep. She says she loves me and does not want to lose me. Sometimes I just feel like a paycheck. I try and just hold her at night but she says I am too hot and to go away. Every time I hear the buzz I just go sit in the living room and turn on the TV. I feel it is time for me to leave. I know people think that men do not need to be held but we do.

Do You Have to Be Turned on to Have Sex?

Sep 13, 2013 | Relationships |Sexual Health | Comments (0)

Guest post from Evelyn Resha certified sexuality counselor and a certified nurse-midwife with over 20 years of experience as an integrative health and sexuality practitioner. 

The number one complaint of women that I see for sexuality counseling is that they have no libido – zip, gone, disappeared. They tell me they’d rather do just about anything else than have sex; bake 100 cupcakes at midnight, shovel snow, or do laundry. Contrary to what many of us assume, this happens to women of all ages and levels of love, attachment, and attraction to their partners. This is not just a problem for members of the post-menopausal set who feels as though their mojo went out the window and their hot flashes took its place.  But, this is not always an actual absence of libido.

Podcast: I Don’t Get Turned On When My Partner Orgasms

Sep 5, 2013 | Relationships |Sexual Health | Comments (0)

This podcast comes from sexual health expert Debby Herbenick, PhD, MPH.

QUESTION: My boyfriend thinks I should get turned on when he comes. I enjoy the fact that he came, and I feel happy and accomplished, but not turned on. Is this normal? Also, when we both get worked up then I start to focus on him, I start to get less turned on because I'm too focused on getting him to finish. He thinks I should be turned on by the fact that I'm performing the sexual acts—is it normal that I'm not?

I Have a Dream at 50

Aug 28, 2013 | General | Comments (0)

Fifty years ago today, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and delivered a speech that transformed America and the world. I Have a Dream resonates just as strongly today as it did on that warm summer day in 1963. One of the most cherished aspects of this masterpiece is the sincerity with which Dr. King sought to unite all Americans.
