What is “normal” with sex and what is almost pathological? Many ask themselves these questions. There are many indiscriminate posts floating around on the internet. It’s high time to give our expert, Nicole Engel, a graduate psychologist and sexual therapist, the floor.
Threesomes (and sometimes even foursomes) can be found on many a man’s and woman’s bucket list. The ultimate must-dos might include anything from partying at Berlin’s famous Berghain and celebrating at the Oscars to spending a year lounging in Koh Pha-ngan and experiencing a sex orgy. But how does a drama-free threesome actually work? Our author Tina Molin has a few tips to help you.
“Sexual issues are mostly psychological in nature for both men and women. Common problems include difficulties with sexual arousal, desire fatigue and dyspareunia – or pain during sex. Men talk more often about premature ejaculation. Women talk more often about vaginismus, also known as vaginal cramps,” the certified psychologist and sexual therapist Nicole Engel explains.
The prolific output of the porn industry is actually pretty disappointing. The market is dominated by material that is exclusively suited to the desires of men and routinely presents (and thus normalizes) a dangerously misogynistic image of sexual relations. However, women can also enjoy being turned on by the genre. It’s all just a matter of finding the right material. The search isn’t easy, but keep looking because it does exist: tasteful pornography for women.
In an interview with Sting, the musician claimed that regular yoga practice had helped him to have fabulous sex for hours. Whether that statement is true may only be judged by his partner. Either way, according to our author Konstanze, there’s strong evidence that yoga can be the key to better sex.
The most important thing to consider is: every body is different. Some of us can become moist in a relatively short amount of time, even with very little non-penetrative stimulation. Others, on the other hand, don’t become nearly as moist – it’s all a matter of natural design. And that’s completely okay. But one thing is for certain: a moist vagina is not the only ‘true’ sign of a woman’s arousal. Otherwise, why would lubrication exist!? Nevertheless, many women and men wonder: what actually happens to the body when it gets aroused? We’ll explain – without giggling.
There is a new rumor making the rounds online: the dead vagina syndrome. Women report of being unable to orgasm during masturbation or sex with a partner. The supposed cause of the crisis? Too much masturbation. Those affected speak of a ‘dead’ vagina. We wanted to find out if the dead vagina syndrome is just another rumor or a diagnosis to be taken seriously.
