Why Do You Think Women Need More Foreplay Than Men?

I should start by saying, I don’t fit the male stereotype. I love foreplay. I like kissing, I like hugging, I like feeling my wife. I also recognize that I need foreplay in order to perform sexually better. On the other side, my wife also does not fit the female stereotype.

Why Your Wife Can’t Tell You What She Wants

If your wife is like mine in this regard, and from my conversations with other men, many are, your wife does not like to tell you what she wants from you.  Generally she can’t tell you what she wants at all.  Your life

How Pregnancy Affects Sex

We recently welcomed our fourth child into our family and I thought I’d write a bit to reflect what’s going on.  Specifically how pregnancy and after the birth affect sex from the male perspective. Now, I know this may upset some of the women who

Sexual Frequency: Why I Don’t Worry Anymore

For the first 8 or so years of my marriage, a constant argument was the frequency of sex.  This seems to be a common theme with many couples.  At least the ones who are willing to talk about it.  In fact, I’m not
