A.   24 June 2017: Yes, I have this advice for you: enjoy what works FOR YOU. Do not compare yourself to other women, especially ones you see "enjoying sex" in porn films. It is not real. It is staged to titivate. Sadly a lot of men think the sort of sex you see in ... (read in full...)

A.   23 June 2017: I have to correct you. You have not "developed feelings for each other". At best HE has developed feelings for the person you have been pretending to be. Who is to say he has not been doing the same? If not, and he has been honest, then he is likely ... (read in full...)
