A Woman’s Guide to Men’s Foreskins

Sex in the shower — Essential Advice!

GRIPPER BARS, a SHOWER MAT, and WATERPROOF LUBE! 

GRIPPER BARS: Get ADA approved gripper bars for your shower — not that the ADA rates them for shower sex. One of you can grab the bars, making sex in the shower safer and giving you more leverage.

“Do Women Pee Through Their Vagina?”

In a gamer’s chat that included a number of adult males who have wives or girlfriends, a question was asked whether women pee through their vaginas. About 50% of the men said yes, and 50% said no. The pics in this slideshow should help clear that up.

WARNING: The following slideshow includes pics of an educational nature that are HIGHLY EXPLICIT, proving that education does not need to be boring!

Morning Wood Feels Different than Erections From Being Aroused

Women often assume that an erection is an erection and it means a man is sexually aroused. Yet there are two different kinds of erections: the kind that result from feeling sexually aroused, and the not-aroused kind that occur during REM sleep and can also happen during the day, especially during the morning hours.

For several months, I included a question on my sex survey asking men if their early-morning (waking) erections feel the same or different than the erections they get when they are sexually aroused.

For Our Brothers Who Are Gay and Bisexual

Straight and gay men have much more in common than most people think. It doesn’t matter if we’re into women or men, our brains are in a constant battle with our genitals over who’s in charge.

All of us understand how penises work–we started yanking on our own when we were still in the womb. However, vaginas are their own universe. So a website for men who are into women needs to tackle different issues than a site for men who are into men.

Closeup of the chest of a woman wearing a bra, and of a woman not wearing a bra, with an inset showing the mammograms of breasts that are fatty and dense.

Breast Density

Many women have breasts that are dense as opposed to being fatty. (Breasts that are not dense are called fatty.) While it is impossible to tell if a woman’s breasts are dense by feeling them, it is very important for women to know if their breasts are dense. That’s because it is difficult to spot cancer in routine mammograms when a woman has dense breasts (see the mammograms below).

A Woman’s Breasts Are Usually Not the Same Size

More than 90% of women have breasts that are different from each other in size, shape, or position on their chest. It’s usually the left breast that’s larger. In almost 25% of women, the larger breast is at least one cup size bigger than the other. This can make bra shopping an even bigger challenge than usual.

Over the course of a woman’s lifetime, her breast size will change up to six or seven times.

How to Cure a Noisy Bed

Let’s say you just moved back home with your mom and dad and the last thing you want is for the whole house to know when you’re having sex thanks to a squeaky bed.

This is easier said than done, given how intercourse can turn a bed into a battering ram. The entire bed will sway toward the foot with each out-thrust and toward the head with each in-thrust. So if it’s hitting the wall,

Women Don’t Like the Way Condoms Feel Any More Than Men Do

Condoms are one of the few ways to prevent the spread of many sexually transmitted infections. Yet men often complain about the way condoms feel, and we assume that men are the only ones who don’t like the way condoms feel.

So imagine my surprise at the groundswell of complaints I’ve received from women when I started asking this question on my sex survey: “Do condoms impact the sensation you receive from intercourse?”

I’ve now received hundreds of complaints from women about condoms.

Unable to Pee in Public; aka Bashful Bladder, Being Pee Shy, or Paruresis

You wouldn’t believe the number of men who have trouble using public rest rooms, and not because they don’t like the smell or have hygiene issues.

Being unable to relieve yourself in a public rest room is called paruresis or bashful bladder syndrome. It’s a very real problem that can limit how far away from home a person can venture and for how long. Being pee-shy can get in the way of taking a urinalysis at work or for a job interview–forget being able to take a leak at a concert,

The Sometimes Complex Emotions of Fathers-to-Be

There are dozens of books and posts for pregnant moms about the feelings they are experiencing. Yet dads-to-be experience their own pregnancy-related emotions that are seldom discussed. Fortunately, we have the research of James Herzog to provide valuable insights into the emotions of dads-to-be.

According to Dr. Herzog, dads-to-be often fall into two groups: those whom he calls more attuned, and those whom he describes as being less attuned. One of the biggest factors that determine which group a man falls into is the influence of his own father or father substitutes when he was growing up.

How Men Ejaculate and Why Semen Drips Out of a Woman’s Vagina

In this brief video (only three minutes!), you’ll learn where semen is made (probably not where you think), how it gets propelled from the inside of a man’s body to the outside, and why it starts dripping out a woman’s vagina like it’s water in about fifteen minutes. Co-hosted with Bob the Llama.

Why You Should NEVER Choke a Partner During Sex!

The single most dangerous act that porn has helped popularize is the idea that women like to be choked during sex.

How Dangerous? As dangerous as a police chokehold.

How Popular? According to a female reader who attends a major university: “Several male partners have choked me during sex, without asking!” In case you think she is exaggerating, consider these findings from a recent study of almost 5,000 undergraduates at a large university in the midwest:

“A majority of undergraduates in our sample have choked or been choked during sex…

The Cervix

The cervix is the lower third of the uterus. It comes out in the back of the vagina. Some women find that having their cervix stimulated feel very good. Paul is in the process of doing a podcast and a video on this. An excellent source of information about the cervix is BeautifulCervix.com.

Guide To Getting It On Videos and Podcast

Most men learn about sex from porn, which does not always provide an accurate view of women’s sexuality. That’s one of the reasons why this website exists: to provide reliable information for men who want to learn more about women’s bodies and women’s sexuality.

Also, women live more than five years longer than men do. Men die by suicide three-to-five times more often than women do, and we make up almost seven-out-of-every-ten drug overdose deaths.
