What do you love about giving sex advice?
I love the instant connection with people who trust me with their candid stories and questions. I love knowing that by passing along the information I’ve learned, I can help others improve their sex lives and intimate relationships.
What is the most difficult or hard-to-answer question you’ve ever received?
I guess the question that distresses me every time I hear it is, “My partner doesn’t want to have sex anymore and won’t talk about it.” I always recommend seeing a therapist — going alone if the partner won’t go – to figure out options for coping with this, but I certainly don’t know the answer. It’s a heartbreaking question.
What was the most interesting thing you learned in your exploration of sex?
It’s all interesting! Goodness, what could be dull about exploring sex?
What do you think is the biggest misconception about sex?
That we lose our zest for sex at a certain age. Certainly sex changes – it becomes more emotionally driven instead of biologically driven, our body parts and erotic responses aren’t as dependable as they used to be. But the desire for touch, for skin contact, for bonding with a partner, for soaring to sexual heights remain strong. These needs and desires are part of being human, and they’re lifelong.
