Dear Andrea:
My boyfriend and I have a great sex life. There's only one problem: he's working a temporary job across the country. While I'm happy for him, the distance has caused a huge strain on our sex life.
On the advice of friends, I bought a vibrator. I've found my orgasms to be quicker and more intense, which is great, but my fear is that I'll desensitize myself. I have very intense, screaming, crying orgasms with him, but I'm scared I may ruin it with the vibrator. Some days I can make myself orgasm three times or more, which seems a bit excessive.

At your cervix

Dear Andrea:
As long as I can remember, I've had a fascination with gyno play and playing doctor. I had never acted upon it until meeting my current boyfriend. We've begun experimenting with speculums, various insertable objects, vibrators, etc. We are always very careful to be sterile and safe.
I've grown more and more interested in the idea of cervical dilation and cervical insertions but have been unable to find any literature on the subject. Apparently, I am the only human alive with such a fascination. Read more »

Dear Andrea:
About what you said about infatuation — isn't it possible to be head over heels in love with someone and also have caring and mutual support? What would preclude it? I am not talking about commitment — there are lots of "committed" couples out there who don't care at all and take each other for granted, as well as couples in the starry-eyed stage (I hope) who care for each other deeply.

Dear Andrea:
I'm 40 and experiencing a sexual renaissance. I've turned into a squirter, which I'm coming to terms with. Guys seem to like it: I haven't met one yet who complained about being wet all the way down to his toes.
The problem is that occasionally when I'm really having a good time I also lose a little bit of stool. Sometimes it's just a smearing on the sheets, sometimes it's a little more significant. This happens with regular vaginal intercourse, even without any anal. Read more »

Is infatuation really such a bad thing?

Dear Andrea:
You've written occasionally about infatuation, but is it really such a bad thing? I mean, is it meaningless? When it wears off, what happens next?
I know it when I feel it. It has driven even logical, structure-loving me to be romantic and well, loopy. But isn't it based on genuine attraction? Is it something to be wary of?
The object of my desire lives far away, and infrequent visits keep the natural relationship progression at bay. Read more »

Opposites attract, kinda

Dear Andrea:
I have a very close gay male friend who often behaves like he's interested in me romantically. He has even told me that he gets crushes on girls, that 1 percent of him likes women, and that he's gotten semihard from girls three different times. He often gazes at me while we're talking as if he's thinking of kissing me. Even my friends notice. He also tells me that I brought happiness back to him and that he feels alive when he's with me. We spend every other night together talking and flirting till 5 a.m.

My sister! My mother!

Dear Andrea:
I have these dreams that my mother is trying to have sex with me. I want to leave, but I freeze in place and can't move. I feel sick when I think about it. I'm a bisexual woman in a healthy relationship with a man. I don't know if this has anything to do with it, but I also have another problem: I really want to have an orgasm with normal sex. I can come if my boyfriend goes down on me or rubs me off, but it usually takes a long time. He's wonderfully patient but I'm still frustrated with myself. Read more »

If once, then always

Dear Andrea:
I started dating this guy (I am a girl) about six months ago. I knew he had a girlfriend in another country. I knew it was wrong, but he was only going to be in town for a few months. We ended up really falling for each other.
So the time came for him to leave, and I thought that would be it. But then he told me that he broke up with his girlfriend as soon as he got home. He flew back to visit, and we started talking about the long term.
Then it all crashed. Read more »

Ghost story

Dear Andrea:
I was on antidepressants for a year and just came off them recently. It was situational; I have no other psych history. I've always fantasized about being submissive but never seriously acted on it. But since I've been off the medication, I've experienced an intense surge of sexual interest. I've developed an online relationship with someone in which I am his sex slave–toy. I've just sent him some pictures of me. I'm a professional and my friends and family have no idea.
I feel I'm about to go out of control with this desire. Read more »

Too bad, Dad

Dear Andrea:
I've prided myself on having a good relationship with my daughter, and we have always been able to talk about anything, but I was shocked when she asked me about anal sex. I was at a complete loss. She's only 14 and it never crossed my mind that she would even know what that is, but I guess it's not like it used to be. She said it's the "cool" thing to do at her school and that most of her girlfriends have had it. I don't want her to think that she can't come to me about things. Read more »
