Last week, I facilitated a sexuality education workshop for a group of college students, which I ended, as usual, by collecting and answering anonymous questions. I asked students to write either a question or their favorite sex fact on an index card, with the goal being to collect a card from everyone regardless of whether...

I am a female in my 20s who has a boyfriend close to my age. We have been together three years. I am able to have multiple orgasms with a vibrator (a plug-in style) that I use on myself, but I have never been able to give myself an orgasm with my fingers alone. My big problem is that while I can orgasm by using this vibrator on myself...

Last weekend, we held a "Strap-On Sex 101" class at the Tool Shed. This was the first time that we had offered this particular workshop, and I was fascinated to see that it generated more phone and e-mail inquiries than any other class we've held. Many people wanted more information about exactly what would be covered during the...

In my mind, there are two separate questions being asked here. The first is about female ejaculation, and the second is about incorporating urine into erotic play, which is often called watersports or piss play. It is likely that the clear fluid that you saw was female ejaculate, which sometimes appears when a woman's G-spot is stimulated. Many sex educators...

I’m more curious about non-pharmaceutical aids. The stimulating gels [that were mentioned in the last column] would fall into that category, but what about aphrodisiacs, supplements, etc.? Big Pharma gave people this problem in the first place! If someone can’t afford yet another single-source name brand [prescription drug...

I have a wart on my penis that has been there for about 15 years. It is getting larger, about 10 millimeters, currently. I have been monogamous with my partner for 20 years. Three questions: Can this wart be removed? Can I infect my partner? Will a condom prevent infection?

A common side effect of many antidepressants in the SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor) class is “sexual side effects” in both men and women. These include decreased libido and anorgasmia. Are there any remedies that don’t interfere with SSRIs and birth control that can relieve these unpleasant side effects?
