My ex and I talk about reuniting but I can't compete with her current boyfriend

Q.   My ex girlfriend and I talk about working things out on a very deep, personal, and regular basis, but her new boyfriend is ten years older, four inches bigger in penis size, and gives her drugs. She says she wants to get back with me and as soon ...

A.   17 April 2016: You need to look for another girl, and not worry about penis sizes. Penis size does not determine a relationship. That girl would have left the guy she is with if she cared for you. Irrespective if it's drugs or whatever, that girl does not care ... (read in full...)

Why do men like to ejaculate on their partner's body?

Q.   Why do guys enjoy cumming on their partners body? Wouldn't it feel better for them to just leave it inside? My boyfriend almost always pulls out when we have sex and I end up with his sperm on my stomach and boobs. I don't hate it or anything, I ...

A.   17 April 2016: If he is pulling out before ejaculating, then he is doing it as a preventive measure not to get you pregnant. Dumping it on the bed stains it. So it's just practical to drop it off on your body. ... (read in full...)

Q.   I have an issue that I can't get over and I don't know what to do. I have been with my husband for approximately 10 years and he has always been my best friend. We have always joked about a threesome but were never really serious, although secretly ...

A.   16 April 2016: Once the monogamy was broken, the dice fall in unpredictable ways. While your emotions are in deep pain now, your husband's will soon be the same unless both of you find the way to salvage this marriage. Threesomes are great in porn flicks, in the ... (read in full...)

What should I ask, when I speak to my Bf, about a stained black dress I found under my Bf's bed?

Q.   I found a black dress with dried up white spots on the front under my boyfriend's bed. I do not live with my BF. I was in his apartment tidying it up for him. Now I wonder if he cheated? First I would like to know, does semen dry white when ...

A.   13 April 2016: Dry semen is not totally white when dry, and it also has a plastic sort of look. All other white stains are more solidly white then semen, by comparison. You should for sure ask him about that dress, first of all, whose is it, how it ended wh... (read in full...)

BFcheated and confessed the next day. Do I cut him some slack because of his honesty?

A.   11 April 2016: They were after sex, so when you broke the news that you were virgin it lit up in their heads: no sex unless I commit to this girl. Since they were not looking for a committed relationship, they blew you off because, to them, no sex means you are a ... (read in full...)

A.   9 April 2016: Of course he is saying it to get laid, even though you really may (or may not) taste good to him or even if he had any inklings for a long term relationship. The problem with men is that you cannot ever tell what their life goals are when the urge ... (read in full...)

Do I say anything to this man or just wait until my life is straightened out?

Q.   This is a complicated story but I will try to make it as simple as I can. I have been married but things haven't been working out due to many reasons. We have been to therapy, try working on our marriage and eventually got to the point where my...

A.   9 April 2016: I wouldn't say anything to that other guy. Your divorce is your business, not his, so focus on getting it done. Once it is done, the fact that you are no longer married will be clear enough of a signal to him, which is when you want that signal to ... (read in full...)

Q.   I've been dating a man who is 10 years older than me for the past couple of years. It's been a good relationship. The sex is especially good and has been since the beginning. He has always loved my passion and energy and that I have a high sex ...

A.   3 April 2016: I don't think that it's your high sex drive that's upsetting him but rather his decreasing sex drive because he seems unable to keep up. I'm guessing his age is around 45, and that is the time of decreasing libido in lot of men for variety of ... (read in full...)

A.   29 March 2016: You should quit weed and stop porn watching porn for sake of health. Pot smoking alters men's hormones such that the testosterone is killed and estrogen is raised. That alters your sexual libido as well as your physical appearance. After prolonged ... (read in full...)

Q.   My wife and I are married for 5years. I am a sex crazy person and my wife was traditional Indian. I always wanted to watch my wife in bed with other guys. I told her my fantasy during sex and she got turned on extremely. She has never watched porn ...

A.   29 March 2016: Would you ever do sex with which you are uncomfortable or don't want to? Of course not. So when she says she is not comfortable with it, it means that she does not want to do it. There has to be no "rational" reason why she does not want to do it. ... (read in full...)

A.   24 March 2016: If this was me I would ask her to show me the phone. If she has nothing to hide then she will not hide. And if she hides then why would she? I think transparency is in order with committed couples. It is up to couples to reassure one another on ... (read in full...)
