healthy
I'd really prefer not to have diarrhea on my wedding day, especially mid-ceremony, the most important part of this whole spectacle.
the frisky
At the end of the day, we’re all on the same planet, and we have a lot more in common than we might think.
breakups
The day he moved, I got drunk on cheap beer and cried like a baby, mascara-streaked and alone in my D.C. apartment.
marriage
I don't need the symbol of our union to double as a symbol for status.
celebrity
Celebrity sex is disgusting. It’s always impersonal, usually degrading and there's no limo ride home the next morning.
adultery
The night I found out I was pregnant, he didn’t come home.
childhood crushes
I recap a lot of different reality shows where women fight and snarl at each other and wear bandage dresses, and the thing that unsettles me most about them is how the main characters all seemed to stop developing emotionally at twelve.
breakups
I've never had a breakup, not a real one, not one where you both decide that things are not working out, or where one of you walks out, not one that breaks your heart into tiny little pieces.
foot fetish
He gave me a novel about fetishes written in 1928 called "Story of the Eye" by Georges Bataille and halfway through the book I realized that I very very much wanted to have sex with this boy.
dear prudence
sex toys
Really I don’t know what’s more embarrassing -- giving my vibrator to the laundry man, or the fact that it only took me four minutes to realize it was gone.
texting
Similar to when chum is thrown out into the water to attract fish, "chumming" is when a guy or a girl sends out little bits of correspondence to see what kind of a reaction he gets.
vacations
Being on vacation is magical and gives lady visitors an “an altered sense of reality… while minimizing perceptions of risk and long-term consequences."
yourtango
Sorry younger/older dudes, but I'm not interested in anything serious with a guy who's not my age.
vibrators
As a sex therapist, my two main vibrator concerns are getting a toy that is physically unsafe and becoming reliant on a vibrator to reach orgasm.
dating
He used misogynistic terms to reduce me to a useless, shameful commodity...all because I rejected him.
sex, sex, sex ... and love
There is a huge public misunderstanding that people who are kinky "enjoy being abused."
your tango
Naturally, because I have the ability to HEAR, I wanted to cancel, but my commitment to keeping my word stopped me.
body hair
"How do you bring up pubic trimming/shaving to a woman?" a guy I know asked me via Facebook message.
coming out
When I complimented her new hair color, there was mutual lingering eye contact. GAY LINGERING EYE CONTACT.
the frisky
I have created a comprehensive list for ladies with responses to these typical arguments posed by men who believe street harassment is a “crazy” feminist idea that really does not need to be addressed.
lesbian sex
I watched weird YouTube videos about cunnilingus, read online tutorials, and still felt like I didn’t know what the hell to do when I was actually all up in my girlfriend’s vagina.
ask a sex therapist
Realizing that poor self esteem is ruining your sex life can be a powerful motivator.
