Morning sex can be a delightful addition to your sexual repertoire.

MSP Q&A: Flavored lubricant

Not long ago I answered a question from a young woman who was looking for advice on using flavored lubricants for oral sex and also whether they would be messy. Here was my response:

There are many different types of lubricants on the market. During sex education programs I have conducted for college students, we have sometimes tried “flavored lube taste tests”. Most often, women and men don’t think that flavored lube is all that tasty. They find that some taste just like cough medicine! Continue Reading →
