One should have a variety of activities through the course of each day. Life is short, and new hobbies await us at every turn. ...Read more

Last night I had sex with a new partner he had a very very very soft erection. He eventually had an orgasm. I didn't, what's going on with him?

Maybe wrong question: I don't know what's going on with your partner. . . . But a more useful question might be what's going on with the 2 of you together? If one of you did not experience pleasure in your sexual interaction, it sounds like both of you missed out on both the experience and mutual communication. Some feel that the most exciting sex comes along with being able to talk with each other intimately also. ...Read more

Otherwise, there is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING here that needs to be cured. ...Read more
