Sex Column Round-Up

What a week!

It started out with some very exciting personal news, visits with old friends, and teaching 160 undergraduate students in a human sexuality class (I have THE BEST class! They ask tons of questions, aren’t shy about raising their hands and they are incredibly attentive. Plus funny!).

And then yesterday, I woke up with a very sore throat and have been tired and achy all day. Whew!

And yet, there is much to discuss in the world of sex.

This week, in my weekly column at Time Out Chicago, you can find me answering questions from: a reader who’s curious about trying strap-ons with her new lady friend; a man who doesn’t come when he has sex; a woman who wants to know how to chart her career path toward working with teens on sex-related issues; and a woman who wonders why her new guy wants to wait so long before they have sex. Read the full column on Time Out Chicago’s web site.

In my weekly Cheeky Chicago column, you can find me talking about a spring awakening for your sex life – most notably, how taking a new perspective on your partner can lead to better sex.

And on I’ve highlighted artist Spencer Tunick’s most recent naked person installation and answered a question from a guy whose ex used to have him come quickly (and now he doesn’t know what to do to last longer).
