An orgasm misconception debunked!

Woman's hand claws floor as she orgasms
Dear Emily,I am 28 years old and I got married 5 years ago. I had never had sex before my marriage. I love my husband and we usually have sex twice a week. He always reaches orgasm and is always very happy, however, from the first time we had sex in our relationship, I’ve been unable to reach internal orgasm through intercourse. He always helps me reach orgasm by stimulating my clitoris with his hand. I reach my orgasm, but it doesn’t make me feel fully satisfied and I don’t like it. I like to reach orgasm internally, and reaching orgasm by his hand leaves me with the same feeling of masturbation. We’ve tried many different positions, but we haven’t been able to find an answer. Please help! Thanks a lot in advance, look forward to hearing from you. Regards, Molly

Is Your Partner Cheating?

Couple caught in the act of cheating
In my last blog I wrote about common myths about cheating. Research indicates that infidelity is on the rise, with more relationships being affected by it. If good people are cheating, how can you tell if your partner (who I’m pretty sure you think is a good person) is cheating on you? It’s not easy to detect given that most affairs are not discovered. Although people can be very effective at compartmentalizing their lives that their affairs are never discovered, there are a few things to consider if you have any suspicions. You can’t tell if your partner is cheating based on just one piece of evidence, but you can look for a pattern of behavior that’s different from the norm in your relationship. Read more

6 Things single girls don’t understand about women in relationships

I’ve been single when it seems like all of my friends have been in relationships. And I’ve been in relationships when a lot of my gal pals are single. I have a big group of friends, so the truth is that it’s always a mix of relationship statuses. But, there’s always a disconnect between women in relationships and single women. Whenever I’m in a relationship, I feel closer to my friends in relationships. And when I’m single, I feel closer to my friends who are single. I think it’s because single girls and relationship girls just misunderstand each other sometimes. So, in order to help bridge that gap, here are six things single girls always misunderstand about relationship girls. Read more

5 Fitness Friendly Date Ideas

couple takes surfing lesson for a date
While I don't consider jogging on side-by-side treadmills at your local gym the definition of romance, it is possible to get your sweat on while on a date. Taking a fitness class together is a great date idea, as it allows you to get to know each other in a low pressure environment--no awkward silences here! It's also a good test to see if you can relax and have fun together without worrying about how you look because nobody looks perfect and sexy at all times when they are working out . Not all fitness classes are ideal for couples though, so instead of inviting your crush to an advanced Crossfit class, consider these more date-friendly options instead. Read more
