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.

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?

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

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

What is it with guys thinking they’re veritable gods when it comes to escapades of the sexual variety?

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

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.

HIV/AIDS — A Very Real Risk for College Women

Once in a while, we get a variation of this question via e-mail: “I’m a woman in college, and I’m wondering if I still need to be worried about getting HIV. Isn’t it pretty much under control by now?”
