I’m trying to be more open about sex, but I come from a very conservative background! How can I rise above it and learn more about sex?
Sex-Esteem, Savannah, GA
Anyone can change or be convinced to change their attitudes about sex. Adult magazines, videos and visiting fetish stores, as well as libraries (the bookshelves that is), which have many books, are all places to pick up a few tricks about sex. Sexual attitudes, like life, should be a constantly changing and ever evolving process. Let’s not forget the importance of practicing! Sex is what you make it: boring, uncomfortable, dangerous or fun-tastic! So, honey, never be ashamed of what you know or don’t know. Learn about sex, sexual behaviors and safe sex before you jump into bed with me… I mean, just anyone!
My lover of six years dumped me cold for someone else. I’m falling apart. I used to love life, but now I can’t wait for it to end! I know I should be strong but…!
Dumped Hard, Nashville, TN
Dear Dumped Hard,
The minute you’re born, life becomes a struggle to find food, shelter, work, love, relationships and a struggle to understand it all. Within a lifetime, we are all guaranteed obstacles, troubles, traumas and even disasters. In other words, sweetie, “This too shall make you stronger!” So, find reasons to get over your ex, to get over your depression and to get on with life. And if all else fails, become a workaholic, which always helps me forget about those no good, cheating monsters! (My cartoon shows you how I deal with this issue.)
For a few months now I’ve been having wonderful three-way sex with this couple. Now, they want me to date them exclusively and live as a threesome couple. Seriously, what are your thoughts?
Threesome Thoughts, Ann Arbor, MI
Dearest Threesome Thoughts,
I think you’re crazy… for not going for it! Why not try everything and everyone, well, not everyone! Why not go everywhere and let yourself be carried away by life! Just think how much fun it would be to be carried away by two, not just one. However, as with everything, pumpkin, you must first ask yourself, “Will this experience hurt me or give me a greater insight about life?” And even if your heart gets hurt a bit, you’ll still gain great insight. Life is about learning, so don’t be afraid to try everything twice, even three times! Live dangerously, yet proceed with caution!
