Evolving norms
Hi, I’m a thirty year old male, and I have an incredibly fulfilling relationship with my girlfriend. We’ve been together for three years but lately I’ve found that I’ve been unable to get an erection. I still find her drop-dead sexy, so I know that it’s not because I'm not attracted to her, and I know it’s not that I don’t want to have sex with her, I’m just not sure what to do. I’m only thirty so there must be another route than Viagra. Is there anything you can suggest?


Hi there, I’m writing on behalf of my best friend in the world, ‘Sally’. She’s confided in me that she has the condition Vaginismus, and I see that it’s wrecking her life. She feels that she can’t trust her partner of three years after seeing some close family members cheating on their spouses. I think she’s afraid of it happening to her, but I’m not 100% sure.

She’s seen a doctor, and they can’t find anything wrong with her physiologically, but she’s too scared to see a psychologist right now. At the same time she doesn’t want it to ruin her relationship/sex life. Is there any advice I could give her?

50% of men think their penises are too small, though most women think their male partners' penises are long enough.

Public sex is the most common fetish to have in western civilization.
