It’s time to talk to your doctor about sex

While it may feel embarrassing to talk to your doctor about your sex life (or lack there of), not talking about it won’t help improve your sexual satisfaction. In my book, Getting The Sex You Want, I speak to the relational solutions to improving the passion, intimacy, sex in long-term relationships. For some women, an unsatisfactory sex life may be related to a physical concern and that requires a conversation with their doctor.

In USA Today last week, Patricia Montemurri consulted with ob-gyns and other health professionals about the importance of talking about sex with your doctor. Check out the full article: What your doctor wishes you would ask about sex

Bisexuals can be monogamous

Civilities columnist Steven Petrow hit the nail on the head with this answer to confusion about Anna Paquin’s bisexuality and recent announcement that she is now married to a man. Petrow highlights the myths, legends, and stigmas associated with bisexuality including “bi now, gay later” suggesting that bisexuality is just a phase. Additionally, a person’s bisexuality isn’t suddenly nullified just because they are monogamous.

Steven Petrow quotes my dear friend and colleague Joe Kort:

I asked Joe Kort, a therapist and author of “Is My Husband Gay, Straight or Bi?” for his definition of bisexuality. He replied: “Bisexuals have an enduring attraction romantically and/or sexually towards both genders. Sometimes it is more toward one gender over another.”

Is BDSM a choice or an orientation?

Following Monday’s post about myths of BDSM, I’d like to challenge another myth regarding this sometimes taboo topic: Is BDSM a choice? Is BDSM and Kink a sexual orientation? Jillian Keenan (Slate.com) makes a great argument for why BDSM/Kink is her orientation and why it may be an orientation for you, too.

Passionate, knowledgeable and supportive are some of the words used to describe Tammy’s approach to her writing course. I had an idea for a book but had no clue as to how to write it and how to get it published. I signed up for the writing class and felt I had  guidance and direction.  Tammy was an amazing teacher. She knew the ins and outs of publishing , everything from working with us individually on how to find our writing voice to showing us how to contact agents and publishers. In addition, Tammy gave the class tons of articles and tips sheet on writing. Bottom line: As a result of the taking the class, I signed a contract with a publisher. Thank you, Tammy.
