Sincerely ridiculous

Humor can quickly become an easy way to avoid intimacy — armed with quips and witticisms, we become the world’s greatest escapists, slipping through the bonds of tenderness — but intimacy, much like oxygen, shelter, and late meal, is absolutely necessary to our survival.

Spice it up

It’s disappointing, given that my favorite moment of trying new spicy dishes is seeing how each culture approaches giving a dish more kick. There are always different techniques, different spices, and different nuances that make each burning dish unique.

Sexpert: Lackluster lover

Dear Sexpert, I have been dating my girlfriend for about 3 months now. Recently, I’ve noticed that after we have sex, and I’ve seemingly fallen “asleep,” she sometimes reaches in her backpack for her vibrator. The mechanic hum isn’t what keeps me up, but the embarrassment from the fact that sex with me isn’t enough for her. I really care about her, but I don’t know how to confront her about this. What do you think I should do?  Sincerely,  Lackluster Lover
