Nearly all men will experience difficulties getting or keeping an erection at some point in their lives. Unfortunately, not everyone knows this and so when erection problems happen to them or their partner, they may worry that they have done something wrong.
Considering how rare it is for young men and women to have received comprehensive sexuality information in school or from their parents, it’s not surprising that many people are curious about what exactly happens when two people have sex.
Vibrators are commonly used by women and men, and they are rarely associated with negative side effects such as discomfort, pain or injury. That said, vaginal sex, anal sex and masturbation – with or without a vibrator – can all result in negative side effects such as genital itching, burning, irritation or tearing.
Given the lack of information about sex that is available to many young women and men, many people aren’t sure what to expect when it comes to sex – what to do during sex as well as what sex feels like.
My girlfriend is amazing. She can have 10-12 orgasms is one hour’s worth of sex. She says it’s always been this way for her. Is there some way to develop this ability? Or are some people just born lucky?
My partner loses his erection every time we try to have sex. This has happened 6 times. I’ve tried putting it on myself and shortening foreplay but neither has worked. He’s fine right until the point the condom is put on.
I am not a virgin. I have had sex three times but that was two years ago and now when I try to the pain is worse than my first time. I know my partner is large but is it possible something else could be wrong?
My former girlfriend experienced female ejaculation two times during our three year relationship – once during oral sex and another time during intercourse. I always thought this was something a woman either displays all the time or not at all. Is it normal to be so infrequent?
My boyfriend and I are in our twenties and have been dating for a few years. On two occasions recently I noticed that he got an erection when he saw an attractive woman. I got mad and upset. Is it normal for me to feel this way? And can’t he control his erections?
Last month, 100 college and university presidents urged that the debate around the legal drinking age be re-opened and re-examined, suggesting that illegal, underground drinking by college students may result in more binge drinking and unsafe behaviors.
Between 40 and 60% of women taking SRIs, a common type of anti-depressants, experience sexual side effects, including loss of arousal, lubrication and orgasm problems. Researchers, including Dr. Julia Heiman of The Kinsey Institute, found that women given Viagra were more likely to report improvement in sexual functioning than those on a placebo.
Sometimes my boyfriend watches porn and I can feel intimidated by this. I know this is a common and natural thing for people to do. Sometimes I think I’m okay with this and other times I can’t quit thinking why – Am I not pleasing him enough? Are the girls in his porn prettier than me? Is he thinking about them? I have talked to him about this before and he says it’s not a big deal and I have nothing at all to worry about. So why do I feel intimidated still?
I am a 22 year-old female and have been having trouble orgasming. (No surprise, right?) My boyfriend and I have been having sex for over 3 years and I used to come quickly and regularly, especially with direct clitoral stimulation. We still have sex often (a couple times a week), but I have not had an orgasm in over a year.
