This week’s columns


Why do women have random, spontaneous, seemingly non-sexual fluttering or throbbing in their genitals? What’s up with couples who like to hit each other during sex – not to get violent, but just for fun? And how can men who are otherwise awesome but can’t seem to connect emotionally learn to keep rather than sabotage their relationship? Check out my In&Out column in Time Out Chicago for these Q&A.

In this week’s Loveville, in Velocity Weekly, I take questions from readers with questions about anti-depressants affecting one’s sex life, sexual addiction, and how to ask out that girl or guy who works in your building but not at all near you or with you.
