Q1: My husband says he isn’t a kissing guy, but I need foreplay in order to have sex. How can I fulfill his needs without making him do something that he doesn’t want to do?
Cooking is like sex. Creativity and variety are two ways to be very good at it.
AASECT.org is a great resource for finding a sex therapist that you can visit with your partner.
Jessie’s adventures in finding a counselor continue to be entertaining. (You may notice that Ep 9 in Season One is starting to sound familiar.)
Q2: How can we build up more courage in the bedroom? Is there an easy way to tell my partner I think they are boring in bed?
Creating a “sex lab” could be the best way to start experimenting in the bedroom... Check out Kate's article about how to set the mood in your own home.
Q3: Is there a right way or a wrong way to suggest the use of toys and tools?
Never break the laws of bad sexual etiquette... The pleasure of your partner matters just as much as your own.
Gerard and Jessie were sure to park in the back when they drove to the sex shop in Episode 20.
Q4: What do I do when my husband wants it and I don’t? Is faking it ok?
It’s important to tell our partners exactly when and how they’ve blessed us in order to build up their "cushion" when times are good.
Q5: How can I initiate sex when I know my partner doesn’t feel like it?
Kate explains the difference between justification vs clarification when it comes to turning down your partner when they’re making a move.
