This column is written in response to a suggestion from a Tool Shed customer who felt that talking with us at the store had made him feel less "weird" (his word) about his desires, and thought that other men might find the same information valuable. So, forthwith: a beginner's guide for heterosexual men who are interested in being anally penetrated by their female partners...

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?

For many adults, the only thing more troubling than thinking about their children having sex should be not thinking about it. Health officials and other brave leaders within Milwaukee Public Schools (MPS) have done a public service by proposing free condoms be made available to high-school students to prevent the spread of sexually transmitted diseases...

For those unfamiliar with "dental" dams (so called because they were originally used during dental work), they are rectangles of latex or polyurethane that can be held against the vulva during cunnilingus or against the anus during analingus or rimming. They act as a barrier to the transmission of sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Many sexuality...

Mark Sanford. Larry Craig. Mark Foley. Bob Allen. Michael Duvall. John Ensign. And the list goes on—Republican politicians who say one thing about marriage and homosexuality, but do quite another. Since the never-ending stream of scandals...

Is there a way to strengthen the PC muscle? I answer this question in honor of Tatiata Kozhevnikova, who reclaimed her Guinness Book of World Records­ title of "Strongest Vagina" last week by lifting more than 30 pounds using her PC muscle. While vaginal weight lifting might not be a goal that everyone strives for, a strong PC muscle has its benefits, including preventing incontinence...

There are health risks associated with any type of sexual activity that includes skin-to-skin genital contact or exposure to another person's body fluids, since sexually transmitted infections (STIs) can be spread both of these ways. As we all should know by now, the risks for all of the health issues that I discuss below can...

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...
