Sexual Harassment Training: Does it work?

My workplace has never had a sexual harassment training program. Is it worth me making waves to get one implemented? I don't want to create friction for something that will just be mocked and not actually change people's behavior. Are there training programs that are better/more effective than others? [more inside]

Does this relationship worth continuing?

I have known this girl for about 8 months. She has put a lot of pressure on me to meet her parents and wants to see my parents as well. In the beginning of our relationship she told me that she was done with dating and the last person she wants to be intimate with should ideally be her husband. She said that she dated two other people in the past and I am the third one. Since she was 30 years old and her number was too low to me, I asked her if she met other people in between her serious relationships and she said yes but she claimed she was not intimate with them. Anyways I did not care about her number as long as she was honest with me. [more inside]

Should I mention sexual harassment in a job interview?

The primary reason I'm interviewing for another job two months into a new position is because this potential job is a better fit with my interests and will better prepare me to move forward in the field. The secondary reason is because I want to escape the subtle but frequent and unwelcome sexual harassment going on at my current job and the office culture that is aware of this one man's behavior but doesn't see it as a problem.

I'm not traumatized... Am I? (Sexual assault recovery)

I was sexually assaulted a few times and stalked/harrassed by an abusive, predatory and highly manipulative man who was in a position of trust to me. (We weren't in a relationship; he is nearly three times my age.) I am confused about where I should "be" or where I amin terms of getting over the events. Counselors and websites are quick to point out things like PTSD and rape trauma syndrome; they are suggesting things like EMDR and strongly hinting that I'm traumatized. I'm not convinced. Is it possible to actually be traumatized and not realize/recognize it? Is a "trauma response"... with panic attacks, flashbacks, and such... the only possible response to rape and harassment? Secondly: Is therapy always necessary to deal with this sort of thing? Or is it possible that I have/will get over it by myself? I don't want to pathologize myself. I don't want to create new problems for myself by going to therapy that I might not actually need. I wanted to ask metafilter because the counselors I speak to are obviously going to be somewhat biased in telling me that I am "traumatized". [more inside]

I don't want sex with my husband. What should I do?

Four years ago I married a great guy. We've been together a total of eight years. Sometime around when we got married...maybe a little before, I stopped wanting sex with him. I dreaded it on our wedding night/honeymoon. At first I thought it was just a phase, something to do with wedding planning burnout and general nerves. Four years later, it's even worse than it was. Otherwise, we have a good relationship, I think. We have everything in common, a shared worldview, good communication. Because of the sexual issue, we have talked numerous times about separating. I guess what I can't figure out is, why this has happened, and if our entire relationship is worth ending over it. [more inside]

Seeking help in finding a book about the lurid lives of Hollywood's biggest stars.

When I was about 15, I remember coming across a book in a now defunct Borders that was pretty interesting. The whole premise was that it featured stories about Hollywood stars and their various sexual liaisons, their sexual quirks, and even the ages at which they lost their virginity. For example, In one of the pages on the actor Dustin Hoffman it recounted the story of the actor tricking his brother's girlfriend into having sex with him and thereby relieving him of his virginity. In another article on Clark Gable, it was revealed that he suffered from smegma and that his wife once quipped that an "inch less and he'd be the queen of Hollywood." Anyway, does anybody where I can find this book. The only title I seem to remember for it--and I am not sure if it's even correct or not--was something like "Did He or Didn't He: Stories of Hollywood's Most Notorious Sex Secrets"

Grf Mstrbtn

Sexfilter! My girlfriend and I have good sex. She comes, I come, all quite brilliant and working perfectly (oh I am a man). But, during preliminary stuff (hands and mouths) I can't make her come. I don't think anyone else has with her either. I've never had any problem with this stuff before. Quite the opposite. I know if she's on her own she'd do it lying on her front... do any girls do this? Does that mean I should be doing something differently?
