Youve decided to take the plunge and see a sex therapist, but have no idea how to find one. Heres help! Before you seek out a sex therapist, start by making an appointment with your physician. This will allow you to rule out any underlying medical conditions that could be causing sexual problems. A physician may also be able to recommend a credentialed therapist. When conducting your search, know that there is a difference between a sex therapist and a sex surrogate! A sex surrogate actually engages in sex with patients to help them sort through issues, while a sex therapist engages in discussion to do the same thing. Because almost anyone can label themselves a sex therapist, ensure that yours is legit. You can do this by getting a referral from an established sex therapy organization, like the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors, and Therapists. Remember, that you must feel comfortable with your sex therapist for treatment to be effective. If you dont, move on quickly!More »

What is sex therapy, anyway? Could it help you? A sexual therapist is a licensed professional who can work with individuals or couples who are experiencing sexual problems. The most common reasons why men visit a sex therapist are premature ejaculation and erectile dysfunction. Women often visit a sex therapist because of anorgasmia, or the inability to orgasm. Once in therapy, a patient is offered the opportunity to discuss sexual issues in a trusting environment. Sex therapy can also include sex education to help a patient learn about the body and how it functions sexually. Another component of sexual therapy is sex exercises, which are designed to be completed outside of a therapist's office. A common exercise is called sensate focus. Used to treat issues like erectile dysfunction, sensate allows a couple to see sex as an experience that is not just about orgasm. In sensate, a couple moves gradually through phases of foreplay, starting with erotic talking, and working up slowly to full intercourse. If therapy proves ineffective, some sex therapists will offer referrals to sex surrogates, certified people who engage in sexual activity with clients. Sexual therapy can be a huge help for couples experiencing problems. If you think you are a candidate, speak with your physician about a referral.More »

Bacterial vaginosis is an infection of the vagina that can be brought on by sex. But sex isn't all that's behind this bacterial imbalance.

Bacterial vaginosis is the most common vaginal infection in women of childbearing age-and it may stem from sex! Bacterial vaginosis, or BV, occurs when normal, healthy bacteria in the vagina are overrun by bad bacteria. BV often manifests as a strong, fishy odor with discharge that may be grey, white, or yellowish in color. So what causes this vaginal infection to occur? Some doctors say BV is caused by sex, although you don't "catch" bacterial vaginosis from a partner. Instead, the infection occurs when an outside element disturbs the vagina's bacterial balance. Sex-particularly without a condom-can do just that. In addition, douching, wiping from back to front, and using an IUD as birth control may lead to BV. After diagnosis, the infection is treated with antibiotics for several weeks. But, sorry, you shouldn't have sex until BV is completely gone! So why not use this opportunity to convince him you should catch up on your cuddling?More »

Sex during menstruation may seem like a very odd idea but with the right technique you don’t have to deny yourself the pleasure just because it’s that time of the month. Learn more here.

Don't let a little blood stop you from having a great time! Here, tips on getting it on when you're menstruating. The best position for minimal mess involves your partner straddling you while you're on your back, a move which slows blood flow. Of course, it's always best to throw an old towel down in this scenario! Or, protect your sheets by wearing one of the newer forms of menstrual cups, like the INSTEAD Softcup. Inserted deep inside the vagina, the cup collects menstrual blood in its dome-like base. The cup works like a tampon, but it can be safely worn-although not felt-during sex. When having sex during your period, know that you are even more susceptible to STDs, as most can pass through menstrual blood. And yeah, you can get pregnant. So period sex should still be protected sex. Enjoy the experience more by being smart!More »

If you are concerned about your vaginal scent, watch this video to get tips on maintaining a scent that is more pleasing to you. Check out this video to know more.

Listen up ladies: Are you uncomfortable with your smell "down there?" The first step to smelling sweet is understanding why you don't. A truly unpleasant scent is usually the product of "bad" bacteria in your vagina. Bad bacteria cause the vagina's pH to change from a healthy acidic level to a smell-inducing alkaline one. Outsmart them by changing the way you wash. Harsh products strip away healthy bacteria, encouraging harmful bacteria to enter and leave the wrong kind of scent behind. Instead, wash your outer vaginal lips once daily with a mild, fragrance-free soap. But don't put soap inside your vagina. Your vagina is self-cleaning and can take care of that on its own! And pick panties with 100-percent cotton crotches, to improve air circulation and allow the vagina to breath. If you really want, you can try one of the feminine products which are commonly available, but make sure you scout out "pH-balanced" products to get the best benefits. But if you follow these simple tips, you won't have to use extra products to return to a sexier smelling state!More »

Many women experience yeast infections at some point in their lives, but can you spread a yeast infection to your partner? Find out more information about yeast infections and sex from this video.

No one wants a yeast infection, but three-quarters of women will get one at some point. Why? All women have healthy yeast in their vaginas, but when too much grows, vaginal infection can result. When the vagina's normally acidic and protective pH is thrown off, excess yeast can build up, causing an infection. All kinds of irritants can cause vaginal pH to become unbalanced, including pregnancy, some birth control methods, antibiotics, and, unfortunately...sex! Symptoms of a yeast infection often include lumpy, cottage-cheese like discharge with an unusual odor. Swelling of the vagina, pain during intercourse, and itching and burning are also signs.Once a doctor diagnoses a yeast infection, it's easy to clear up using over-the-counter medication. Or, a one-time prescription pill called Diflucan can also cure the problem! But avoid sex while you're getting better, since there's a slight chance you can pass the condition to your partner. The good news is that sidestepping future infections can often be as easy as wearing cotton panties, and avoiding scented products "down below!"More »

Prostate cancer is the second most common form of cancer in men-but what if you could take steps to prevent it? Cancer is scary, but-believe it!-you can take positive steps to protect your prostate by logging more sex sessions! Researchers found that men, who averaged 21 ejaculations a month, were a third less likely to have prostate cancer, than those who ejaculated less frequently. That's because semen contains carcinogenic, or cancer causing, substances. "Flushing" them regularly may lower the risk of damage. And how about upping your alcoholic intake...to a daily glass of wine! One study found that the antioxidants in fermented grapes can inhibit the growth of cancer cells and cut prostate cancer risk in half! The hair-loss treatment, Propecia, generically called finasteride, may also help reduce the likelihood of developing prostate cancer. Finasteride blocks the production of an undesirable hormone that triggers hair-loss and prostate growthFollow these tips, and your prostate will have extra protection against cancer!More »

One in six men will develop prostate cancer during his life. This may seem scary, but here are some simple steps that can help keep you safe! One of the easiest ways to protect your prostate is a lot of fun... get spicy and get saucy! A daily intake of just three cloves of garlic, or two tablespoons of scallions, can cut cancer risk in half! And two weekly helpings of tomato sauce can slice risk by almost thirty percent! Why? Antioxidants like lycopene in tomatoes and organo-sulfur compounds in garlic get credit for these food's abilities to fight cancer-causing cell damage. After your delicious Italian meal, enjoy a cup of green or black tea with dessert, another proven prostate cancer-fighter. And while it's not preventative, it IS smart: Make sure to see your doctor for annual prostate exams after your 40th birthday. Caught quickly, almost 100 percent of prostate cancers are curable-a statistic sure to make it easier to endure that gloved finger!More »

Just like all men have penises, all men have prostates, but most are more acquainted with the former! The prostate is a walnut-sized organ which can be both a pleasure center and a place where cancer can reside. The prostate is located between the bladder and the penis in the front of the rectum. The urethra, which carries urine from the bladder through the penis, passes through the prostate's center. The nerves that control erection are attached to both sides of the prostate, as they extend to the penis. The prostate produces seminal fluid, which nourishes and "carries" sperm. Male ejaculate, or semen, is a mixture of this seminal fluid and sperm. The prostate is surrounded by sensitive nerves, which is why some men enjoy anal play. The organ is also the location where prostate cancer, one of the most common forms of the disease, shows up. So, particularly if you're a male over 40, get your prostate checked annually-it can only do you good!More »

Your long lasting erection could be a serious issue. While exciting, erections lasting more than a few hours could be a condition called priapism. Watch this video to learn more about this medical condition.

Erections can be a lot of funBut what if a hard-on just wont go away? Medically, any erection that lasts longer than four hours is classified as the serious condition: priapism. Priapism is often painful and is generally not sexually induced. As in a normal erection, however, priapism begins when the penis fills with blood and becomes erect. Unlike a typical erection that ceases after sexual activity is complete, an erection of this type doesnt abate, even after orgasm. The causes of priapism are often serious diseases, such as leukemia or sickle cell anemia. Medicationslike some anti-depressants and anti-psychoticscan also be partly to blame. Rarely, drugs used to treat erectile dysfunction can lead to priapism. Priapism is severe and can lead to long-term damage like the inability to get a normal erection. Since no one wants that, seek immediate medical attention for an erection that lasts more than four hours!More »

Back pain and sex can be a tough combination, but luckily there are ways to keep your love life hot even when your back is not. Start sex off with a warm shower with your lover! Relax your back while the two of you get steamy. A bad back means you need to avoid acting like a rodeo star in the bedroom! Instead, try spooning rear-entry positions, which are easier on the back. In addition, favorite positions can often be modified with a pillow or towel. Talking with your partner about what works is also vital for keeping things comfortable. Last and most important: if it hurts, don't do it! Listen to your body so you can continue having hot sex!More »

Luckily, it's easy to find new positions that put less strain on achy joints, so your sex life stays steamy! If movement causes you pain, ask your partner to provide most of the acrobatics. You may prefer a position that lets you move away if you suddenly experience joint discomfort. When a man has hip or knee problems, he can lie down on his back with pillows for support. His partner can then support her weight on her elbows and/or knees. When a woman has hip or knee pain, both of you can lie down on your sides, with a pillow between the woman's knees. The man should then enter from behind. The goal is to work together for your mutual pleasure and comfort. Learning what your partner enjoys will give you confidence that you can safely please your mate!More »
