Any advice I give should not be taken personally. I'm not here to judge you, so you can be sure any advice I give is strictly objective. What you choose to do with my advice is completely up to you, though you can be sure the advice I am giving you is what I feel is best for you.

Please keep an open mind when asking for advice. It seems that many people aren't really looking for advice, they are just looking for justification to do what they already have in their mind to do. This site is about gaining an unbiased perspective on things. Please don't ask a question if you've already made your mind up on what to do.

Some things to remember:

- The "pullout" method is NOT a method of birth control. This is just something people do to rationalize their thoughts that sex without a condom feels better than it does with a condom. Even though a man doesn't climax, he still secretes fluid the entire time that has the potential to make you pregnant. Don't be a fool, if you are old enough and mature enough to have sex.... use birth control.

- There is no excuse for "revenge" sex. If your partner cheats on you, immediately going out to sleep with someone else as revenge doesn't make it right.... it makes things way worse. Relationships aren't about keeping score. If you believe they are, then you shouldn't be in one.

- Relationships rarely end easily. Especially long term relationships. It is very common for one partner to breakup with the other and then continue to text them or call them. Many times sex can start again as well. Unfortunately, there was a reason you two broke up in the first place and odds are a cycle with start to where you start to spend more time together and eventually feel like you ARE together... only to break up again. So before you post those "He broke up with me but he still texts me!" questions, remember this.

- There are about 50 million posts here regarding porn. Please do a search prior to posting questions like "My boyfriend watches porn, what should I do?". This is a touchy subject here but my opinion on porn is that it's not a big deal - as long as it's not an addiction. To MOST men, watching porn is strictly a tool for masturbating. Those women are not the type men want to have relationships with. Ask and most men will tell you that as soon as they "do their deed" they shut it off. It's not like they watch it for any other purpose. From my experience, the women that have issues with porn have issues with their own self confidence and they are insecure. There are many women out there that are confident that they satisfy their men sexually and feel that their husband watching porn is harmless. However, don't get me wrong, there are times when a man is addicted to porn and will choose porn OVER sex with their partner. This is where porn is unhealthy. My point in all of this is if you are in what you consider to be a "perfect" relationship with a great guy who does anything and everything for you, there is no need to penalize him if he watches porn. If you STILL have a problem with it, try watching it with him. Make it a sexual experience for the both of you. Or, record yourself with him. You'd be surprised what that does for a relationship.

Q.   My girlfriend asked me why I am sexually and physicall attracted to her. I was at a lost for words. What do I say?...

A.   13 January 2011: I think everyone is taking the OP's question too literally. It's not that he doesn't know why he's attracted to her, it's the fact that she asked the question in the first place. When a girl asks this question to her partner, it really puts him in ... (read in full...)

A.   13 January 2011: He's manipulating you. He saying all of the things he needs to in order to create doubt in your mind. He's counting on you putting some blame on yourself and using your guilt in his favor. It's sounds to me like you know you shouldn't be toget... (read in full...)

A.   6 January 2011: 1. You don't HAVE to let your partner climax inside your mouth. Yes, guys enjoy it, but you shouldn't ever feel like you are being forced to. If you are okay with it, there are a couple ways to do it. One is to quickly run to the sink and spit it ... (read in full...)

A.   30 December 2010: This is something that you have a responsibility to tell your sexual partner about. There's no question about that. However, to the right person this shouldn't be a deal breaker. If you are talking to a casual, one night stand partner then I'd ... (read in full...)

A.   30 December 2010: You cheated because you wanted to. You cheated because you could. There's no need to psycho-analyze it, this is actually quite simple. You're trying to over analyze it because you feel guilty and wish you can come up with another reason other ... (read in full...)

Q.   My boyfriend and I have a great relationship and a great sex life. We talk about everything and are very comfortable with each other. During sex, I usually come a lot, and again and again but lately I've been having trouble coming during sex. It's ...

A.   30 December 2010: As the others have said, this is not peeing. You are "squirting" which, in many mens eyes, is not only not a bad thing... but many times a turn on. It's a sign that you are enjoying yourself. I know it's hard to believe, but try not to worry abo... (read in full...)

A.   29 December 2010: Well, clearly he's into you. But since you backed away he still may not be sure about your feelings. I'd say the ball is in your court. He's being flat out honest about how he feels so if your relationship is going to take the next step it's ... (read in full...)

Q.   Ok I have heard a lot of what I think are myths but I want to be sure about the subject of unplanned pregnancy. My question is if is really possible to get pregnant without even having intercourse. I have heard about the guy cummin on you and gett...

A.   29 December 2010: Quite simply, sperm needs to be inside a woman's vagina to impregnate her. Generally, cumming "on" her poses no risk unless you do something like collecting it and putting it inside your vagina. Even then, the odds are very low. I'd say if you ... (read in full...)

A.   28 December 2010: "Irresistible pull" is not an accurate description of what you feel. A more accurate way to put it is "I don't care if I made a commitment to my husband, I want what I want and I'm going to do what I want. The difference between right and wrong is ... (read in full...)
