Is there really a point to "gender" verification?

Is there any real, concrete reason for genetically testing female athletes like Castor Semenya? It seems to me to be an exercise in gender policing and humiliation rather than anything else. [more inside]

How do I protect myself emotionally as a submissive?

I'm a bi female in my early 30s, just out of a decade long very vanilla relationship. I live in NYC and have been exploring my submissive side. Really enjoying it. Like, alot. I have never had better sex in my life and it is amazing. I am extremely submissive and I'm having a little bit of difficultly making sure I am emotionally safe. Because of the nature of my situation, I can't really talk to my usual family or friend connections when I need to vent. [more inside]

Condom broke, what next? PEP usage with a partner of unknown status

I'm a late-thirties bi man who's relatively new to having sex with men - like, total partner count under 5. Last night I went home with a guy I sort-of knew, which is not something I've ever done before. The condom broke while I was bottoming and he didn't notice until afterwards. What next? [more inside]

Do sex drives ever INCREASE after 3+ years in a relationship?

My SO and I have been growing together more and more in the last three years. However, one thing seems to grow less and less, and as we move closer to thinking about marriage, I am a little concerned that our sex drives are mismatched for a very long term relationship. I am 23 and she is 21. I've heard a ton of anecdotes about women "waking up" sexually around 25. Is it realistic for me to think that that could be a possibility? [more inside]

I want to have sex.

My ex of three years and I broke up a few days ago. Initially he told me that the main reason was our different feelings about marriage (see previous posts), but upon further discussion, he said the biggest issue was our lack of intimacy. [more inside]

Is skipping oral sex ok?

A recurring situation in my life: Meet a great girl, start sexy time, feel erect from kissing and fondling (good!), the girl goes down on me and then I completely lose my erection (bad). I cannot remember a time in my life that I've enjoyed oral sex. Is there something wrong with me? [more inside]

Primate sex crime?

From lay reading and popular science I understand that male chimpanzees are aggressive and extremely political. My question is, is the killing of adult female by adult male chimpanzees a thing? Is it a hazard of sexual contact for the female? Has it been observed, and if so, are there any explanations? Notes: I understand anthropomorphic concerns are not relevant framing for understanding ape sex. I have no difficulty with any of the terms used here: Primate Ifo Net. I've had a quick look through here: Sexual Coercion in Primates and Humans, and it doesn't answer the question. [more inside]

Ideas for desensitizing during sex?

Ever since I had a vasectomy and stopped using condoms, I've become insanely sensitive during sex, often lasting all of 30 seconds before climax. I used a condom for the first time in years the other day and it was fantastic, dulling the sensations just enough to last as long as I wanted. Is it possible to accomplish that without condoms?

Incompatible sex drives the norm for post children heterosexual couple?

I wanted to make that more of a question not a statement but ran out of characters. The question is based on every close female friend that's a mother I have I realise :( talking about marital sex with terms such as it 'being the least important part of the relationship' etc. It is almost spoken about like it is something to be 'put up with'. This makes me feel bad for both parties and about permanent relationships in general. [more inside]

Recommend some body paint for the fun times?

Partner and I are interested in painting each other's bodies as a prelude to Other Stuff. Getting non-crappy body paint has turned out to be a surprisingly hard thing, though. Everything we've ordered from Amazon has been really unsexily crappy, and often nasty-smelling. Does anyone have a specific recommendation? Should we just go to an art store and buy some acrylic, and then take a shower afterwards?

I used to like all kinds of funky sex. Since depression came into my life a few years ago, I've been far, far less sexual.
