Why Does Sex Always Hurt Me? [Ask Tuffy Luv]

Why Does Sex Always Hurt Me? [Ask Tuffy Luv]

I don't know what is wrong with me, but I think my vagina is too tight/small. Although I have been having sex for almost a year, it is still often painful afterwards (if not during), and it snaps back to it's original state.

Tuffy Luv Sez: Blue Balls Are Real?!

Sometimes when I don't want to have sex my boyfriend says we have to because he gets blue balls. I always go along with it but what is it exactly and how can I keep him from getting it in the first place?

Defending Small Penises [Sexy Time]

Defending Small Penises [Sexy Time]

There's a lot of cultural stigma attached to small penises. They're not considered attractive. We mock guys who aren't well-endowed and consider them less desirable than guys who are more blessed. A lot of a guy's perceived masculinity is tied up in the size of his junk, which is just utterly absurd.

Sexy Time: Why the Taboo?

Sexy Time: Why the Taboo?

You see, while my entire family is aware that I’m an up-and-coming journalist, I always find it interesting that no one brings up exactly what I write about or what kind of publications I’m aiming to write for after graduation. Even my successes – the fact that I just got to interview my sex-columnist hero, Dan Savage, and I’m running my very own sex advice column in my school paper – were tiptoed around like a landmine.

Sexy Time: A Public Affair

Sexy Time: A Public Affair

One time, I had sex on a pier. After my three month dance with celibacy, I finally gave in at the end of the summer, and I figured if I was going to go for it, I was going to do it with a bang (well, that and my roommates were asleep and we have very thin walls). I worked my charm with my then-friend-with-benefits, and before I knew it, there I was – butt ass naked at the end of a pier at 4am.

Explaining the Sexual Satisfaction Discrepency

Explaining the Sexual Satisfaction Discrepency

What is it with guys thinking they’re veritable gods when it comes to escapades of the sexual variety? A new study found that while 85% of American men claimed the last person with whom they had sex reached orgasm, only 64% of American women actually had an orgasm during their most recent sexploit. Let me pull out my calculator on this tough one…

Sexy Time: What’s Love Got To Do With It?

It might be surprising to you guys, but I kind of have a penchant for sex, so I’ve opted to take a course that is write up my alley – philosophy of love and sex. Every week, we’re given a question that we half an hour to answer on paper. Our first “question of the week” was something that really got me thinking – is it more desirable to have sex with love, or sex without love?

Tuffy Luv Tawks Seks

Tuffy Luv Tawks Seks

Dear Tuffy Luv, I have been with my boyfriend for over a year and we are just crazy about each other, but we are still virgins. We were originally saving our virginity for religious/moral reasons, but we both changed our minds on that and want to have intercourse now. However, we each live in our parents' homes and his family is super-religious.

The Doctor Is In: Why Does Sex Hurt Me?

Q: I am not in a serious relationship, so I don’t have sex very often. When I do, though, it always hurts. Sometimes even more than the first time. Why is that? Is there something I can do so it doesn’t hurt anymore?

Move Over Condoms – There’s A New Birth Control In Town

Trojan, Durex, Lifestyles…watch out! A new study indicates that there is another method of birth control that may be almost as effective as condoms in preventing pregnancy. The best part is, it doesn’t require any pill, patch, or plastic; doesn’t include side effects of weight gain or nausea; and there’s no wasted rip’n’roll time.
