    How Research Measures Average Penis Size

    Determining the average penis size for a group of males, let alone for men around the world, is more complicated than you might imagine. Unfortunately most information about average penis size comes from popular culture and not science. Let's start by considering some figures from science.

    Reasons Why An Erection May Go Away

    There are few absolute statements you can make about a penis. One might be that penises are unpredictable and unreliable. You may have 100 experiences where your penis (or the penis you're with) responds as you expect and responds in concert with the way the rest of the body feels. But that doesn't mean that the 101st time an erection will not give way to a soft penis before its time.

    How Erections Work

    When most people read the word "erection," they probably think of a penis, specifically, a penis that is hard. Penile erections are without a doubt the most talked-about erections in the body, and below you can learn just how a male erection works. However, it's worth knowing that a penis isn't the only part of the body that gets erect.

    How Real Is the Sex You See in Pornography?

    Because visual pornography seems to be a part of many people’s early exposure to sexual material (a “fact” that isn’t really verifiable, but nonetheless is taken as true) it is often considered a form of sex education. And because, as adults, most of us don’t get the chance to talk honestly and openly about sex with a wide range of people, many adults continue to believe that what they see in pornographic films represents common sexual practice.

    When is the Right Time to Give Him Some Direction?

    As my friend Sean says, when it comes to a guy performing oral sex, if you have to ask “what do you like,” it’s already too late and you’re asking the wrong question (Sean likes to joke, “the real question you should be asking is, ‘Can I get you a cab’?”). But I disagree, and so do my other friends. When a sexual relationship is starting out, sometimes you have to ask.

    Reasons Why You May Not Be Having Orgasms

    There are many reasons why someone may feel like they can’t orgasm. The first thing that’s important to know is that just because you aren’t having orgasms, and even if you’ve never had an orgasm, that doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t have an orgasm. It’s also worth pointing out that there are lots of great sexual acts that don’t involve orgasms. But if you’re goal is to orgasm, read on.

    How To Talk to Your Partner About Your Sexual Issues

    Whether we are in a brand new relationship or have been married for forty years, when it comes to talking with our partners about sex, panic can often set in.

    When we imagine the potential for rejection and drama, taking a risk like that with someone we love can often feel too great. This is probably the reason so few of us do try to share the really difficult stuff of our sexual lives. Here are ideas on raising those hard-to-raise issues.

    Should I Be Worried My Partner is Faking Orgasms?

    If you’re worried your partner is faking orgasms, the only real remedy you have is to ask. There is no way to know for sure if someone is faking an orgasm. Even if he was, even if there was some sort of device you could use covertly to distinguish real from fake, what would you then do with the information? You’d have to talk about it eventually.

    How Much Sex Does the Average Couple Have?

    From the moment we’re born our health and growth (physical, psychological, spiritual) is compared to others based on numbers. Actually, it happens even before we’re born: How far along are you? How often do you feel a kick? Once we're born everyone wants to know what level we read at, how high can we can count, what our SAT score was. The competition to be both normal and above average is endless, and endlessly frustrating.

    Jealous of My Girlfriend's Vibrator

    I am having a really big problem with my girlfriend's vibrator. I'd like to say before I start that me and my girlfriend share a very intense love. With that intense love comes lots of other intense emotions. I just think that's important to say because of this horrible way I'm feeling about this problem.She is unable to have an orgasm without a vibrator. I have been supportive and understanding and helpful as much as I can. But her problem is now affecting me.

    Why Can I Only Orgasm with My Vibrator?

    Question: Why Can I Only Orgasm with My Vibrator?

    "Although I am able to have fantastic and, sometimes, multiple orgasms, using a vibrator, I have never been able to reach orgasm with my partner. We've been together 6 years, he is "the One" and we've always had amazing chemistry, and it is so disappointing for me, and, for him!"

    The Politics Of Friends With Benefits

    Last week I went to see Friends With Benefits. Partly because work made me and partly because the invitation said there would be a bar. I had a good idea of what was going to happen without checking IMDB – Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake try to have regular casual sex and end up falling in lurve – but the whole thing was executed with a warmth and sweetness that made it hard not to like.

    However, anyone who is hoping for a few tips on how to have the perfect no strings set up will be sorely disappointed by it. I’m not an expert on love but I am endlessly conducting failed experiments on sex, dating and the best kind of biscuits to fix a broken heart. When it comes to maintaining a friend with benefits I think I’m pretty close to a major scientific break through.

    Sperm: Put A Smile On Her Face

    The scientific community is more likely to study the effects of light particles travelling from A to B, rather than a nun and a rabbi entering a bar. Like those two old joke staples, I guess comedy and science aren’t supposed to mix. So maybe we shouldn’t be surprised that Lazar Greenfield, M.D. president-elect of the American College of Surgeons and inventor of the Greenfield Filter, has been pilloried for attempting to make light of a serious scientific subject.

    Size Doesn’t Matter

    Americans are obsessed with size and frankly, it’s getting a little tired. Certainly there are reasons for it – if nothing succeeds like excess then it makes sense that amplitude of everything from our cars to our breasts to our Big Gulps to our waists to our phones end up being a subject of interest or exaggeration.  There is one thing, though, the size of which I get tired of seeing attended to (besides women) and that is the penis.
