This week, as I sat surrounded by more than a dozen different types of leather bands (with Velcro, studs, snaps, multiple rings, figure-8s, and more), it occurred to me that this would be a good time to write a column about a frequently misunderstood topic: how to use an erection ring (also known as a penis ring...

This week, my friend Gwendolyn Glover has asked me to guest-blog on her Web site, Little Miss Writer. Her theme for this month is people's relationships to their bodies, and she asked me to write about how I think a person's body image affects their capacity for sexual pleasure. I'm cross-posting my thoughts here and on Gwendolyn's blog...

Oh, feelings-sometimes they pop up even when we don't want them to. It sounds like you realize that your sense of discomfort may be a tad irrational. Your boyfriend wasn't cheating or lying, and it's common for people to have more than one sexual partner in their lifetimes, so no big deal, right? You don't say whether or not this is the case, but if you or your guy...

I'm a 50-year-old man and my wife is 48. We just celebrated our 27th anniversary. About six years ago, my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer. Thankfully, she has made a miraculous recovery. However, because of the treatments and drugs she had to take after her lumpectomy, her desire for sex has all but diminished. I, on the other hand, still have a very strong sex drive and crave the intimacy that intercourse brings to a couple. It's not like we're not having sex...

This week, I have a question from a reader who has asked for confidentiality, so I will use gender-neutral pronouns (ze/hir/hir instead of she/her/hers or he/him/his) and will not print the actual question that I received in order to protect this reader's privacy. The question concerns a topic that is simultaneously well known and misunderstood: sexual fetishes. While the reader was asking about a specific type...

Here in Wisconsin, most people think that the month of May brings daffodils, the end of the school year at UWM and Marquette, and (finally) some warm weather. For the past 14 years, it's also been time to celebrate a little self-loving. Good Vibrations, one of the first woman-owned sex toy stores in the country, first declared that May was National Masturbation Month in 1995 in response to the firing of then-Surgeon...

Earlier this month, my column featured one of the most frequently asked-about sex topics: anal pleasure. If you were intrigued by that column and want to learn more, I invite you to come to the Tool Shed on April 25 at 2 pm for a workshop with Tristan Taormino, a woman whose name is practically synonymous with "butt play" in certain circles. Tristan is the author of "The Ultimate Guide to Anal Sex for Women" as well as the forthcoming "Anal Sex Position Guide," which will be published in May. She directs a series of...

You probably recycle. Perhaps you've started to carpool, bike, walk or take the bus more frequently to cut down on gas use. Maybe you're switching out your chemical household cleaners for good-old baking soda and vinegar. But have you thought about ways to make your sex life more environmentally friendly? Yes, that's right: There's no area of your existence that can't be made a little greener! In honor of Earth Day, I offer...

I love your column, and instead of being embarrassed in the doctor's office or looking online for an answer, I turn to you. When I was younger and would masturbate, I would be able to "express" myself for many feet. Whether I was in the shower or bathroom, it seemed to have quite a bit of "oomph," whereas...

I am a gay SWM, middle age, and consider myself a nice, normal person. I know how to make interesting conversation that can engage most people. Typically, by the end of the conversation I give a person my card. I generally wait until an occasion arises to invite the other person to participate with me, such as coffee. I almost never get a response. Do people just pretend to be...
